Dr. Amin is fantastic! He is genuine and warm, professional and accommodating. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field and will steer you in the right direction whatever your needs may be!

Dr. Amin is an excellent dermatologist. Just after talking to him for a few minutes, you can quickly tell that he is intelligent, professional, and knows what he is talking about. He really takes the time to explain procedures to me and address all of my questions and concerns. I feel like he truly cares about me as a patient. I've gotten laser treatments done with him several times in the past and will continue to return to him for my skincare needs. I highly recommend him!

I never expected that my mole was actually a skin cancer. Even my primary care doctor didn't notice it. I went to Dr. Amin for another reason and he noticed it immediately and suggested a skin biopsy. The surgery he did to remove it was perfect. I cant thank him enough!
in Cross River, NY |
Dr. Amin is my favorite dermatologist and my secret to looking young! I trust Dr. Amin's experience and knowledge and have always enjoyed excellent cosmetic results in his care. The office is also beautiful and very conveniently located within walking distance from grand central station in Manhattan.
