Dr. Chwalek was very quick to diagnose a dermatitis rash that I had. I had zero wait time and she managed to treat me outside of office hours. She was very knowledgeable and helpful in treating my terrible itchy skin. I would highly recommend seeing her for any of your dermatology needs as she's very thoughtful, inquisitive and open to many different methods of treatment. She has a lovely disposition!

Dr. Chwalek is really knowledgeable about all the different questions I had (read: a lot). She is friendly and professional, and I absolutely trust her with my healthcare!
in New York, NY |
Dr. Chwalek is excellent! She is very professional and knowledgeable when it comes to skin care, and took the time to address all of my concerns / questions (laser skin resurfacing for sun damage and fine lines / wrinkles). She comes across as very patient and compassionate, which I appreciated. Her office overlooks union square park, which was really convenient. Overall I would highly recommend her to others.
