Follow up visit after 3 months of light therapy for Mycosis fungoides. Dr Geskin and her associate were lovely. I had suffered a migraine on the way to the appt. And was having difficulty because of the headache and all things migraine. Dr Geskin was upbeat and very thorough. I had hoped to cut down the treatments but Dr Geskin needed to see total remission of all lesions. I appreciate her thoughtfulness and her obvious commitment to her patients! Thankful beyond words!

This was my second appointment and just as the first time Dr. Geskin was well prepared for my visit. The doctor was pleasant, concerned for my issues and updated me on results gathered from the first visit. If I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would for Dr. Geskin and her well rounded team.

Dr. Geskin never responded personally with respect to my medical questions, but instead delegated all responses to her subordinates. Moreover, the responses that were given took weeks! I found her to convey a sense of self-importance that borders on pure arrogance. In addition, when I asked her to please use sedating medication before injecting me with the medicine on several spots on my chest because of the extreme pain I was experiencing, she declined and said she was mixing the anesthetic with the medicine even though I told her this had been tried with me before and simply did not work to minimize the pain. After the injections I developed an extreme itch while sitting in the waiting area, but despite my repeated requested for her to look at it, she left me sitting there for over 90 minutes, finally sending out her assistant to speak to me instead (and who was not able to assist at all). I would never see Dr. Geskin again, nor would I ever recommend her to anyone.

She is a disaster. Sent a physicians assistant in to diagnose me. Took her at her word, didn’t even look at the problem. Prescribed three unnecessary medications. ( went to another dermatologist, not part of Columbia, and she recommended an over the counter remedy which worked great)Pharmacy called her three different days about one of the prescriptions...she never responded. When I called several times I couldn’t get hold of her...only her assistants, even though I insisted on talking to her. I sent her an email which one of her assistants responded to a month later. When I asked about a skin rash under my eye, nothing to do with the dermatitis in my head and ears, she snapped “that’s an allergy” nothing else like “ I would suggest such and such” How she called herself a doctor amazes me.

Dr. Geskin helped me with every problem I had! She cured my severe hair loss which for many years no endocrinologist or dermatologist was ever able to help me with, she cleared a bad spot on my face and took care of a wart on my finger, everything effortlessly and on the first try. I am so grateful that I got to meet her, she should have a 5 star rating.

Wow! She’s one of these doctors if she doesn’t understand or she’s never seen the problem before she goes to directly blaming the patient. Doesn’t even listen to any history and disregards anything that doesn’t fit with her narrative in her head. A legend in her own mind

I found Dr. Geskin to be an excellent dermatologist! She analyzed my condition and recommended a number of treatment options, from which I picked one that I thought would suit me best. Dr. Geskin was thorough with the dermatology exam, and patiently answered all of my questions about my skin condition.

Dr. Geskin may be a good doctor, but her practice at Columbia's Physicians & Surg. is a complete rip off. For more than a decade I get Photodynamic Therapy-- from various dermatologists over that time. Unlike the other esteemed Drs. in past, her office would only do 1 area at a visit-- unless I PAY OUT OF POCKET despite that it is covered by my insurance!! Just a total scam, money squeeze for them at my expense--as if paying for top level insurance isn't expensive enough. Terrible office!!!

Stay away from this “doctor”— she is abrupt, rude and determined to do the most costly procedure instead of listening to the patient. After 20 years of hair loss treatment she recommended not only unnecessary but harmful procedures which caused my hair loss to rapidly progress. For this I paid thousands despite her reassurance that everything was covered. During this time she was unavailable for any phone consult then forgot who I was. She failed to offer any helpful information.
