One of the best doctor experiences I've ever had. It was my first time seeing a Dermatologist in about 7 years and I went in for a full body scan. She was so thorough literally checking every single spot on my body and noting all of them to her assistant as she took notes. My time spent with her was probably about 40-45 mins and I never ever once felt rushed. She took the time to hear about my history, hear my current skincare practices, answer my questions, and share with me the importance of sunscreen and other skin care tips for health. She and her assistant were so kind and I felt so heard, relaxed, and very well taken care of! Also, the office is very well run. I went into my appointment right on time and didn't have to wait more than a couple of minutes. What a seamless and great experience. Thank you, Dr. Lenahan.

Dr. Lenahan's office loves $$. From opening a cosmetic center in the office to requiring unnecessary visits so they can bill insurance companies, it is obvious that someone is working to pad their retirement. I have already put out feelers for a legitimate dermatologist that is interested in actually treating medical issues.

Dr. Lenahan is the first dermatologist that I have felt her diagnosis and treatment plan is spot on. She and her staff are friendly and professional and you feel comfortable the minute you walk into her office. Dr. Lenahan spent a lot of time with me which in my experience is unheard of.

It was great to hear they have an office in the city on Main near Hertel. I made an appointment easily, was seen on time and very happy with the care I received from Jen. She took her time and explained what she was doing. The office staff and assistant Robin were friendly. All very caring people.

I have been seeing Dr Lenahan for over 10 years. Each yearly visit has gone smoothly in a timely, professional manner. Dr. Lenahan has 2 office locations for patients’ convenience. I have complete confidence Dr. Lenahan’s checkups, diagnosis, decisions concerning my skin condition, and whether minor surgery or a biopsy is necessary. She is also a great resource with a preventative regiment for all skin care Issues. Dr Lenahan is truly a blessing as my dermatologist.

The Harb Family in Williamsville , NY – May 31, 2018
I have recommended Lenahan Dermatology to family, friends, and co-workers. I see Jen, a PA and she is EXCELLENT! Very calming, approachable, answers every question I've ever had and I recommend her to everyone! I've met Dr. Lenahan once when she came into the room and introduced herself. I've not had a reason to ask to see Dr. Lenahan but based on my dealings with Jen and the other staff, she must have the same work ethic and ability to communicate easily with her patients.

We tried to get a prescription filled locally but could not because Dr. Lenahan did not proved the correct information to pharmacy. Had to speak with prescription department several times and could not get it right. Very poor!!

Dr. Lenahan and her PA's having treating me for several years now and I can honestly say that the service at this office is nothing short of stellar. They are incredibly meticulous and thorough with amazing bedside manner. I would recommend this office to anyone with any skin conditions. It is not close to where I live in Buffalo, but it is well worth the trip.
