This review is two years in the making! I should have wrote this review a couple years ago when Dr. Zuckerman changed my life! I was injured in a really bad car accident that broke my nose. I had always had an insecurity about my nose and always wanted to have it fixed but was always too scared. The accident forced me to fix it! It was just a slight bump I wanted shaved down and to straighten the septum. Dr. Zuckerman did a beautiful job, alleviated my fears and it came out beautiful! Thank YOU!

I saw Dr. Zuckerman in February of 2017 for breast augmentation surgery. As soon as we finished our initial consultation, I knew right away that I wanted him to do my surgery. From the moment, I walked into the office Dr. Zuckerman and his staff at Schweiger Dermatology made me feel extremely comfortable and confident in them. I live in Boston so the coordination and scheduling of the appointments always were a little bit of a challenge. Dr. Zuckerman and his assistant Abby made everything so ea

I am, and will be, a patient of Dr. Zuckerman's for life. He is the only doctor in New York that I have seen that is world class, but doesn't have attitude, and doesn't try to oversell me on extra treatments. He is straightforward, honest, and will spend copious amounts of time answering questions. (I know: I asked him about 20 questions about liposuction during one visit.) I come multiple times per year for touch ups / maintenance. I have sent friends to him and they feel the same. I come to h

Dr. Zuckerman is far and away the best, most professional plastic surgeon I have been to. I came for facial injectables treatment at his Murray Hill office as I had seen Dr. Zuckerman's specialized techniques on his social media. I wanted a couple specific things: more treatment in one area than another, etc. He listened to exactly what I said and customized my treatment to what I wanted. (I've unfortunately had other plastic surgeons kind of force on me what they "always do".) He didn't try to

Dr. Zuckerman is my favorite doctor that I have ever encountered. He really went above and beyond for me. After my cosmetic surgery, not only did he give me his cell phone, he also arranged for a private nurse to come stay with me for a night AND came to check on me at 6:30am the next morning before another surgery he had to perform. He works really hard and is really really great. I can't say enough good things.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Zuckerman at Schweiger. I go to Schweiger generally for my dermatology needs but when they brought on Dr. Zuckerman do to Plastic Surgery I thought I would give it a shot!

I had a really good experience with Dr. Zuckerman. He was thoughtful, attentive, very knowledgeable and his staff at the Park Ave office in Manhattan also took great care of me!
