Jill Giattino – Jul 22, 2020

Patient

I have been a patient of Dr, Ostad for more than 30 years. He is an excellent doctor and surgeon and is always sympathetic to my questions and concerns. He is an expert in MOHS surgery, which I have had several times, all with excellent results. His staff is professional and knowledgeable. His understanding and low-key attitude is great. He also explains everything that needs to be done before and during the procedure. I would never go to any other dermatologist.

Dr. Ostad is a great listener, very kind and I have found him to be a doctor I fully trust. I was referred to Dr. Ostad by my California Dermatologist in Los Angeles who is one of the best and I've found Dr. Ostad to be in the same category...one of the best.

Andy Herringer – Mar 29, 2020

Excellent... did zoom video call and Dr Ostad was able to see the issue I had and had me come in the next day for an appointment. I don’t think I waited even 5 minutes. The consummate professional

L. Karsten – Feb 06, 2020

Patient

Dr. Ostad is wonderful!! Very kind, generous of spirit and so knowledgeable. I always feel that I'm in good hands no matter the issue. And that I can ask him any question I may have. And even though there are expensive procedures available to those far wealthier than I, no one has pressured me to do something simply to do it. The front office is lovely. If I need to see Dr. Ostad quickly they go out of their way to accommodate me. I recommend Dr. Ostad without reservation!

Another wonderful visit to Dr Ostad today. A 'tune up'! I continue to marvel at hsi artist's eye and deft surgeon's hands. I feel so lucky to have found him. It's not inexpensive but I'd rather invest in my face than in passing fashion.

J.J. Sullivan – Nov 21, 2019

Patient

My bride of 56 years and I have been patients of Dr. Ostad for nearly two decades. He is totally professional in every way...extremely knowledgeable & thorough...an excellent communicator...never an alarmist...always available in case of an emergency. I have had several Basel and Squamous cancers and multiple pre-cancer growths and there is no one I'd rather have diagnose and treat them than Dr. Ostad. He cares!

Nov 20, 2019

Patient

I have been a patient of Dr Ostad for about 19 years I have always found him to be a caring and professional Doctor who always listened to my concerns and gave me his advice of which I usually followed. I would definitely recommend him to others. Over the years I have done that more than once.

Kathy L – Nov 17, 2019

Patient

Dr. Ostad just performed my second Moh's surgery on my face. This one was very close to the corner of my eye, by my tear duct. Dr. Ostad is an amazing surgeon in every way. My surgery is only 3 days old and already looks amazing. He has a wonderful bedside manner, always caring, sympathetic and professional. He is the only dermatologist that I will use going forward. He and his office staff are caring, professional and create a environment of calm.

Janet lehr – Nov 15, 2019

Patient

Excellent. I concur with all the posted reviews. I was born into a medical family, a family of intensely well schooled, totally involved practitioners. Meeting Dr Ostad has been critical to my physical health. Not mention in earlier reviews was his ability to identify cancerous growths. Quite possibly, Dr Ostad's analysis of a facial flaw, saved my life. His follow up exams are always full body. Janet Lehr

1 Debbie Korb – Nov 14, 2019

Patient

Dr Ostad is my favorite Dr. ever. He is always kind and compassionate and has always been spot on with his diagnoses. He’s not inexpensive but we’ll worth every penny. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

Dr. Ostad is a phenomenal doctor and he has a very calming manner that makes his patients feel safe and secure.

Alexander Firestone – Nov 07, 2019

Patient

I had a sudden growth on one foot. It was sometimes painful. I phoned Dr. Ostad at about 8:30 am this morning, and made an "emergency" appointment for 1:30 pm this very afternoon. I was taken right on time, examined, and thankfully the growth was only a callous. It was treated immediately and followup instructions were given. Absolutely first-class treatment!!! This is how medicine should be.

Linda Hutton – Nov 07, 2019

Jim Bell – Nov 01, 2019

Patient

My experience could not have been better. Superb! The Reception staff, the Nursing staff, Doctor Ostad, and the actual surgery: simply magnificent. I can relax even though I have a skin cancer when I know that I have been placed fortunately into the medical hands of the very best there is. A patient can do no more than that. Thank you ?? dear Kat & Nicole, Omaira, Marlene, Jasmine, every one there: Thank You to the entire Office. Jim Bell

Susan Wagner in Ny, NY – Oct 16, 2019

Patient

Dr. Ostad is trustworthy in his diagnoses, patient, and gentle when he performs a procedure. He has helped me with dermatological problems that my previous Dr. did not. He performed successful Mose surgery on my husband.

Oct 12, 2019

Patient

I went to Dr. Ostad for evaluation of some lesions. When I got to the office I was concerned that the emphasis of the practice was cosmetic, but after my consult with Dr. Ostad I was pleased that he had a real interest and concern for my problems. He was not rushed and answered all of my questions.

Gary – Oct 09, 2019

Patient

I have relied on Dr. Ostad to check out skin changes on my face and body for 18+ years. He and his staff are excellent, both in the services they provide and the explanations they provide along the way. I highly recommend Dr. Ostad's office for maintaining skin health.

Oct 05, 2019

Dr Ostad and his staff are wonderful. Dr Ostad took his time with me explaining everything that he was going to do and what the results would be. I have no bruising from the injections. I look 10 yrs younger. He is amazing.

1 Oct 04, 2019

Patient

I have been under Dr Ostad’s care since 2004. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to handle my skin cancers. Dr Ostad and his entire staff treat me like I’m the only patient there. I have had five mohs surgeries. My scars are barely visible. Dr Ostad is a master at mohs. If your looking for a kind, compassionate and skillful dr, it’s Dr Ostad. Sue N (New Jersey).

Oct 03, 2019

Patient

The office staff is highly professional and accommodating. Dr. Ostad is a doctor I can talk to and ask questions without feeling intimidated. In addition, I have found him to be an accomplished determatologist who has performed surgery in a manner which has been most acceptable.

Paul Richman – Sep 25, 2019

Patient

I visited Dr. Ostad's office and, as usual, everything associated with my appointment there was just perfect. I didn't have to wait at all to see the doctor, who was, as always, pleasant and a delight to talk to. My exam was performed in a very friendly, efficient manner, and I left the office healthy, happy, and with a big smile on my face. Dr. Ostad is a wonderful doctor, and his entire staff is wonderful as well.

Janet Slavin – Sep 21, 2019

Patient

Dr. Ostad is a caring, extremely gentle, tremendously competent dermatologist. I have been going to him for years and have total confidence in his level of care.

Bill D. – Sep 14, 2019

Patient

First the lounge is the most inviting office you could want complete with reliable, professional, friendly staff. Dr. Ostad is so respectful while, at the same time, being inquisitive and aware. He somehow does the most unintimidating exam. I leave his office feeling almost cheery, even when it's bad news.

Steve Novick – Sep 14, 2019

One of the best dermatologists in the city of New York... a very nice man... a wonderful staff. you can’t ask for more

Patient

Dr Ariel Ostad is everything you want a doctor to be. And so is his office staff.

Aug 29, 2019

Patient

Dr Ostad dismissed a growth on my face TWICE. My new dermatologist looked at it once and knew it was basal cell. Unfortunately the mohs surgery I underwent to remove it was much more extensive as it had grown so much in the year.

Gregory Cranford – Aug 23, 2019

Patient

Assured and assuring. A genius at mohs reconstruction

Aug 14, 2019

Patient

Dr. Ostad Is an extremely knowledgeable doctor, kind to patients and willing to take the time to explain procedure. I have been a patient for close to 20 years and willingly travel from another state for appointments.

Daniel Ray – Jul 31, 2019

Patient

On April 25, 2019, Dr. Ostad used Moh’s surgical technique for extraction of a basal cell carcinoma on my nose. After excision, he had to perform extensive reconstruction due to the tumor’s large size. During the whole procedure, Dr. Ostad kept me well informed about the various stages. His hand was secure and gentle. I felt totally safe. I had several scheduled follow-up visits, the last one being on July 19. Altogether, the recovery was remarkable and, within a few weeks of the surgery, the scar was hardly noticeable. Now, three months later, there is no swelling and the scar not noticeable. Besides great surgical skills, Dr. Ostad is a people person, a winning combination in a surgeon. Dr. Ostad is also supported by a compassionate team of nurses and a warm and friendly front office staff.

Robert Green – Jul 26, 2019

Patient

The office staff extremely competent, friendly and helpful. The waiting area is comfortable with complimentary snacks I have had 3 surgeries to remove basal and squamous cell cancers, including one on my face, with Dr Ostad. Each one healed quickly and well with virtually no visible scarring.

Jul 24, 2019

Patient

The only down side is the wait. Often I am kept waiting 20-30 minutes in the exam room...

Paula Adelman in Gainesville , VA – Dec 06, 2018

Patient

Dr Ostad and his staff could not have been better. The results of my Basel cell carcinoma eyelid surgery speak volumes for Dr Ostads professionalism. I highly recommend him.

3 1 Lisa in New York, NY – Oct 24, 2017

Patient

Came in for filler injections and was left lopsided. I had to pay thousands of dollars to correct it. This after paying almost $5000 to fill my cheeks. Now I’m lopsided and still have Lines all over my lower face. Terrible injector.

2 steve novick in nyc, ny – Jul 21, 2017

Patient

Dr. Ostad is extremely knowledgeable and a charming clinician. Both he and his office are efficient and respectful of the patient. I would recommend him without any reservation.

3 Victoria in New York, NY – Apr 28, 2017

Patient

I am just finishing treatment with Dr. Ostad and his terrific, highly skilled staff. I was diagnosed with an infiltrative basil cell carcinoma on my nose, very deep and wide. Dr. Ostad was so thorough and gentle during my initial examination I felt immediately in the best of hands. My procedure was painless as was his meticulous reconstruction; my follow-ups and recovery given with much care. I make my living in front of the public and I am so grateful. I couldn't recommend Dr. Ostad more highly

2 Erica E in New York, NY – Nov 14, 2016

Patient

Dr. Ostad is a superb diagnostician and wonderful doctor on all levels. He is an extremely intelligent, kind and caring doctor who listens, explains, addresses all concerns, and is very kind and approachable. He has a delicate touch and comforting bedside manner. The office staff and medical assistants are likewise personable and warm, and the office is pleasant and welcoming. I have been to may other dermatologists but would not want to see anyone else after having been in Dr. Ostad's care.

Brenda in New York – Nov 03, 2016

Patient

I adore Dr. Ostad and his team. From the moment you walk through the door of office, you are treated like a VIP. Dr. Ostad and his team don't simply want your business, they want to know who you are, what your goals and concerns are and the best way to curate a treatment plan that will fit you as an individual. With a focus on total body health. balance and education, Dr. Ostad is more than a doctor; he's a wellness coach guiding you into a happier, healthier life.

DrB in New York, NY – Nov 02, 2016

Patient

The office ambiance is pleasing, which makes a trip to the doctor less stressful. Members of his team are welcoming and congenial. Dr. Ostad’s examination is gentle and thorough. He is calm and shows warmth and concern. Patient queries are taken seriously; his professional demeanor conveys respect. Making an appointment is smooth, I was seen at my appointed time, and obtaining results of lab work is efficient and timely. I recommend him highly.

Talia in New York, NY – Oct 25, 2016

Patient

I have seen about a dozen doctors for my acne. Not one of them could get my skin to co-operate. I felt like it was controlling my life. I came to Dr. Ostad for the first time last year and I am writing this review with a smile and clear skin. He formulated a regiment for me that helped control...Read More

Aleahrios in New York, NY – Oct 24, 2016

Patient

Dr. Ostad has been my cosmetic surgeon for several years now. I trust him completely with my skin, face and body. He is always so warm and assuring when I come for my consults. I have referred patients to him in the past and they all have the same experience. His office staff is equally warm and friendly. He is a great physician.

Jennifer S in New York, NY – Oct 24, 2016

Patient

Dr. Ostad is one of a kind. His artistry and skill is incredible. I have seen him for various cosmetic procedures and one skin cancer surgery. I was so nervous because it was on my face but 6 months later and there is no evidence of a scar! He is a master at injecting and I wouldn't trust my skin needs (medical or cosmetic) to anyone else.

1 Carol in Queens, NY – Oct 01, 2016

Patient

I was referred by my dermatologist to Dr. Ostad for Mohs surgery on my nose. Dr Ostad immediately put me at ease with his wonderful bedside manner and his office staff was just as professional and reassuring. It’s been a little over six months since my surgery, but there is virtually no scar! While...Read More

1 lynne V. in New York, NY – Sep 24, 2016

Patient

I was recommended to Dr. Ostad by my dermatologist for Mohs Surgery for a basal cell on my face. My stellar experience started with the kind and professional front desk staff. I was then escorted back to an exam room by an even kinder and more professional nurse. Dr. arrived (on time I might add!!!!!) and I was totally impressed!!!! My basal cell was pretty deep and he ended up having to slice my cheek open which did not make me happy. 6 months later, there is NO evidence of surgery. Genius!

2 3 Greg in New York, NY – Sep 14, 2016

Patient

This doctor, or his office, appears to have severe scheduling issues. Waited for 35 minutes and they still hadn't seen people who were there before me. I value my time too much to pay $1000 so I can be disrespected.
