5 out of 5 stars Vi Peel
Dr. Strachan is a great dermatologist. She is very knowledgeable, courteous and professional. After years of acne and bad skin, I never thought my skin would look as good as it does. She answered all of my questions and helped me find the right products for my skin. It doesn't take long to get an appointment, and the wait time to see her once you're in the office is minimal. Her Union Square location is very convenient. She also takes insurance, which is a huge plus. I highly recommend Dr. Strachan for all of your skin care needs.

I work at Aglow Dermatology and have in many different capacities, and in addition to being a part of a wonderful healthcare and beauty organization, I love working at Aglow for the beauty treatments! I have had many chemical peels, and have tried all of the different types of full face peels; lighter peels, the intermediate or Jessners peel, and the VI Peel. I love the results of the peels,...

What a great personal investment. I am a dark skinned blk male in his 20's and this peel delivered as promised. My skin looked and felt extremely smooth after 5 days with no discomfort during the application or time In between the estimated healing process. On cue I began to peel on day 3 and actually embraced it. It did wonders for evening my tone, softening my skin and best of all shrinking...

Arrogant, self-righteous, condescending, snob! Needs to be held accountable for her actions!

The procedure was very gentle . it didn't hurt at all! The doctor was very comforting before and after the procedure. I was very Happy with the results. People around me noticed a difference after I had the procedure done. I would recommend this procedure to anyone that wanted to look a little younger without going through a major surgery.

Dr. Strahan listened though I know they are busy, I feel that more patience can be given to patients. My time is valuable as well but I felt Ike I was being rushed and not heard or asked if I had questions.

I find Dr. Strachan and her staff very pleasant and accomodating! I was referred to her by a friend and, in turn, refer all my friends to her. Honestly and personally, I cannot find a negative to visiting Dr. Strachan. Her staff is always very courteous and helpful, the office is always inviting with water and other snacks available while you wait and she, as a doctor, has been very helpful and knowledgable. She took the time to look at my skin and then decide the best treatment vs. other doctors who just come in and look and then sign off on the latest acne cream. She has a very pleasant bedside manner and I recommend my friends to her often!

Dr. Strahan also seemed bothered or annoyed by my questions. Also, in the middle of my treatment, they stopped to get my credit card which I thought lacked class or professionalism.

I regret not doing my research on Dr. Strachan prior to my appointment. I was recommended to see a dermatologist because I had a mole on my upper arm that was increasing. I figured let me kill 2 birds with one stone and let her treat me for the acne on my forehead. She immediately prescribed me retin-A micro for my acne without any further tests on my skin and suggested that a biopsy should be...

Unprofessional, impatient and outright behaved as if she couldn't be bothered. There was no warmth nor any feeling that she cared. Everything was rushed and she didn't even touch my face or pretended to care about me as a patient. I was very disappointed because she didn't ask any questions or took the time to ask what was going on. She asked an assistant to ask all the question then she enters the room you've been placed in (1 of a # of rooms) and spent less than 3 mins. She then wrote the prescription and left abruptly without any opportunity or invitation to ask any questions. I discussed it with 2 other colleagues of mine, one of whom had the same experience and the other who heard that while she knows her stuff, she's terrible in her demeanor. The staff takes on the same attitude.
