These reviews must be made up. Staff are young with no diplomacy or understanding whatsoever and D.O. Rachel Kushner is all about selling products and $$$... Need I say more? Office is filthy.

The reviews are misleading or done by people her friends or colleagues. I typically do not like reviewing. It is necessary to say she is the worst in her practice. I would not recommend her. Lifeless and baseless knowledge of symptoms.

I made a followup appointment to see Dr. Kushner. Left work early, waited 50 minutes, then called into the exam room. I asked, I am seeing Dr. Kushner, correct? The reply was, "Dr. Kushner is not here today, you will be seeing the P.A., she's just as good as Dr. Kushner and does the same job!" If I wanted to see the P.A., I would not have distinctly made the appointment asking for Dr. Kushner. Needless to say, I walked out. Beware - very deceptive!

Definitely would not recommend. The wait was about an hour and 15 minutes and I received no help for an urgent/same day appointment for a condition I am told should be handled at a dermatologist's office.

Wait time was an hour and a half. Time spent with the doctor was less than 5 minutes. They required payment in advance even before seeing the doctor. The waiting room was inadequate, there were no cups in the water cooler and no toilet paper in the bathroom. The receptionist didn't seem to care one way or the other when I mentioned this to her. My prescription was incorrect when it was sent to the pharmacist. I was supposed to get three refills and they told the pharmacist 0 refills.

My daughter was diagnosed with a fungal infection, and prescribed cream. When I called the office to ask a question (three times), no one got back to me. Very poor follow up. Also, the Farmingdale office is dirty and has an odor. The PA who saw my daughter was very nice, but I wasn’t impressed with the rest of the staff.

I have been under the care of a different dermatologist for more than a decade for the treatment of pigmentation around my face and I never notice any change. But with Dr. Kushner I started getting the result in 4 months and I'm on my way to get the remaining (may be 15%) result. It is a pleasure working with Dr. Kushner and she is going to be my dermatologist for the rest of my life and l can strongly recommend her to anyone I know who have skin issues.
