"I had my first visit with Dr Strachan 2 weeks ago and my experience was not a bad one at all. The wait time was less than 20 minutes and she actually spent 10 minutes with me and listened to my concerns. She had me list all the treatments that i had done for acne which was everything under the sun and then took the time to look at my skin. She pointed out that i was beginning to scar and had holes in my face from past and present acne. When i relayed to her that i had started and stopped a Claravis (also known as accutane) treatment one month in, she promptly cut to the chase and asked me if i wanted to restart it. I agreed and in a few weeks time if my blood test comes back good, i will be continuing my course.
I wouldn't say she was overly friendly but she was by no means rude at all. Her staff was very pleasant as well. If Claravis is not an option for me, then i will be discussing other possibilities with her. The fact that she is a woman of color like myself, i am hoping that she is a bit more insightful with treating my skin type than other dr's i have met with.

"Very knowledgeable and caring. Always spends enough time with me and explains what s going on. I feel as if I don t need to worry so much about skin cancer, even as a melanoma survivor, because Dr. Strachan is very careful and thorough. Her office staff has always been very friendly and professional."
"I live in Queens and I was referred to 2 dermatologists closer to my home and I had a feeling that I was sent to them more for convenience than actual quality of service. I decided to do a little research of my own. During my search Dr. Strachan's name kept popping up in a good way and I thought I would give her a shot and I wasn't disappointed. Dr. Strachan is very personable and she's a good listener, which I feel is key before making any diagnosis or recommendations. Last but not least, it's refreshing to go to a dermatologist office and not get pressured into buying any products they may endorse. "

"I have been seeing Dr. Strachan for three years now and highly recommend her to everyone who mentions an interest in finding an excellent dermatologist. Her bedside manner is amazing and she is a great doctor! She takes time to explain problems and follows up accordingly and in a timely manner. The medical assistants are very friendly and professional and the aesthetician gives amazing facials. I have had chemical peels, facials, and other procedures done there, in addition to check-ups, and each experience has been amazing. If you want a great, friendly, highly experienced and intelligent dermatologist, go to Dr. Dina Strachan in Union Square! "

"Dr. Strachan is a knowledgable and gifted dermatologist. I have tried several others in the UK but have found no one that can match Dr. Strachan's rapid assessment and treatment of any skin condition I have presented. I wish she were in London instead of New York as she is not only a fantastic doctor, but she is a kind, courteous and gentle person."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Strachan's for years and she and her office staff have been nothing but great to me.
I never have to wait for long periods of time and she takes time to answer all of my questions. I usually see her every 2 years as that's when my acne starts to flair up (it's madness) and she always takes good care of me.
It's definitely hard to find a good doctor in NYC and I will be sticking with her for all of my dermatological needs. "

"Dr. Strachan really helped me clean up my skin and was not judgmental at all. I will continue using her with no hesitation and I highly recommend her!"
"Dr. Dina Strachan is the BEST dermatologist I have seen. She is smart as a whip, courteous, fast, and accurate -- solving my problems and turning my dull face aglow! She was very sensitive to my needs, including my time and financial situation, while still giving me treatment that was first-rate. I have dealt with a lot of physicians, and she is the most efficient I have seen -- I give her the highest recommendation. "
"I went to this doctor upon recommendation of my husband who is very satisfied with her (and he tried many dermatologists due to his eczema). Dr. Strachan is amazing! And so are other people working in there. The receptionist greeted me with a smile and "Hello, how can I help you?" which doesn't normally happen when I go to a doctor. The nurse was very nice too :o) And the doctor was amazing, first she introduced herself, smiled and said "Nice to meet you" and asked about all my problems. She took great care examining them and let me talk, I didn't feel rushed at all. She explained what the cause is and how to treat it, she was very professional, yet relaxed and friendly. She was the first dermatologist ever who actually tried to find out what's the problem with my toe nail and took a sample (I've been going to various doctors for over 4 years and no one ever cared!). She also gave me loads of free samples for my dry skin. I recently found out she's one of the top NY dermatologists and it doesn't surprise me at all, she's truly awesome - very professional and approachable. I'll definitely return. Both me and my husband highly recommend Dr. Strachan's office :o) "
