21/11/13 5 3 5 5 Always the best. I have been going to Dr. Madfes for more than just cosmetic alterations. She is kind, her staff are my friends, and I look forward to going there. She is so popular however that she is often behind schedule so factor that into your schedule.  Respond

06/03/13 1 1 1 1 This doctor should lose her license.I accompanied my 20 year old daughter for laser hair removal. The first visit the machine kept over heating and finally broke. They tried to use an antiquated one from a closet that was terribly painful. They suggested we reschedule when the machine was fixed.We returned a week later and the dr. had the nurse ice the area that was to be lasered which was my daughter's bikini area.Dr. Madfes came in after the ice had been on a full 30 minutes. The machine proceeded to break again. The dr. started screaming at my daughter when she said I can't believe the machine is broken again. She ranted that her equitment wasn't broken it was just over heated. We waited another 30 minutes for it to cool down. All this time no one had told my daughter to remove the ice. The dr. returned , the machine broke again. My daughter now has a scar from where the ice burnt her skin. this dr is an animal and very rude. Don't let her soft, mini mouse voice fool you.Hate her!

24/01/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Madfes is an extraordinarily good doctor and a warm and compassionate person. She always works within my budget and when she a new treatment she is testing, she has not charged me at all. She is not like most of the Madison Avenue dermatologists who just want to treat people who fill the society pages.I followed her when she left an uppity dermatology practice and just LOVE her. She truly cares about her patients. I cannot convey just how wonderful Dr. Madfes is!  Respond

01/09/12 5 3 5 5 Sometimes you get lucky and find a dr. who really is up on her game, is not into the fads, will steer you away from things that aren't proven, and work wonders. Dr Madfes is very crafty with her needle and laser treatments making me look better and better with every passing year. Ill be 60 and Ive had no facial surgery but with her artistic skill I will never have to go that route.  Respond

Her staff is wonderful, too. Only downside..a long wait.  Respond

29/02/12 5 4 5 5 I met Dr. Madfes when she was working for another prominent dermatologist many years ago. When she opened her own practice, I followed her. She is absolutely the best! Her sweetness along with her intelligence is an unusual combination in a doctor. I recommend her to everyone that I know.

16/09/06 5 5 5 I cannot believe she has not yet been reviewed! I am from Dallas and fly to Manhattan JUST to see this doctor. She took away all of my acne scars via just a few affordable photorejuvenation treatments. But it wasn't just that that made me fall in love with her! If you could make a composite of all the good points of all the doctors you've met in your life - honesty regarding whether you need a certain treatment or not, incredibly caring and gentle, LISTENS, knowledge that remains extremely current (yet is not trendy, jumping on every brand-new idea/treatment bandwagon), knows when to say, "You don't need that!," you would have Dr. Madfes. I love her!  Respond
