Dr. Magovern saved my skin. For real. I moved out here from Arizona in 2012 and my skin went completely crazy with breakouts. My roommate referred me to Magovern and I couldn't be happier. She gave me an inexpensive prescription and within weeks my skin was clear again. I also love that she recommends optional facial treatments and some of the skin care products sold in office, but she is never pushy about it and always gives you other drugstore alternatives. I will say, after trying out one of their cleansers, I can see the difference. It is a little pricey though so not something I use every day. Another plus... the office is clean and cute and parking is plentiful! I've recommended her to several girls in my office and everyone has had a great experience.

honestly, everything about this office is amazing. its particularly clean and new, which always makes me comfortable. the staff is really nice and professional. but most importably, dr. magovern is extremely knowledgable AND takes her time. there is nothing i can't stand more than being rushed through a dr. appointment and this was the exact opposite. dr. magovern takes her time, listens to every silly question i have. she did a super thorough all over body check, too.
i left with some great products that have already made a difference on my face; obagi vit c with hydroquinone, elta md sunscreen for my body and some great salicylic pads for my face. next i'm getting fraxel...can't wait!!!

I'm always so happy to come here - this place is my spa-like retreat! I had moderate acne for several years and Manhattan Dermatology is the first derm to pretty much clear my skin. I've visited several dermatologists in my time and they were always unpleasant experiences - cold/quick doctors who over-prescribed me harsh products that further ruined my skin. I've tried everything from Duac to Accutane and nothing was ever suitable for me - plus the side effects were scary. This never happened with Dr. Magovern - she's worked really hard to make sure I'm responding to all of the treatments, and is happy to quickly adjust to find exactly what works for me. My solution involved a combination of light therapy, peels, antibiotics, and various topicals. The results have been epic. The office staff is also great. They all know me by name and I feel welcome and comfortable when I arrive. They are witty, fun, and always run on time (which definitely isn't the case for me, but they're pretty cool about it). As everyone else said, this office is super clean, high-tech, and state of the art. They've also been great about working with my insurance to get most of my treatments covered - including peels, etc. I have never experienced this at any other doctor. Thanks Manhattan Dermatology! :)

I brought my 16 year old daughter to see Dr Magovern. I am so impressed with every aspect of this professional, spa like, clean and friendly dermatology business. We were called immediately after finishing our paper work. I went to pick up a magazine and literally had no time to even open it before the Dr came in. A doctors office that cares about other peoples time, one of a kind. Not to mention every single person there was smiling. I cannot say enough about this Dr office. Do not hesitate for one second to come here, you will not be disappointed.
Way to go ladies, top notch.

My first time I visited Dr. Magovern was for an annual check up, and she performed the most thorough exam I had ever had. She was very professional and informed me of everything she was doing. She answered all my questions, and best of all I didn't have a long wait in the waiting room when I arrived.

I have been going to Dr. Magovern for about three years and have seen her for both medical and cosmetic reasons. She is extremely knowledgable and professional, and has never tried to upsell me on procedures or products. She has a compassionate disposition and makes it is clear that she truly cares about her patients and profession.

I have had major skin problems since I was born. I am now 62 and have gone to countless dermatologists. Dr. Ashley Magovern, is the most genuine and soft spoken and gentle doctor I have ever been to. I would recommend her to everyone. She is exceptionally easy to talk to and very up to date on modern medicine.

I had problems with areas of hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation on my face. Other dermatologists misdiagnosed me, told me I needed a lengthy regimen of expensive laser treatments and said I had no other treatment options. They scared me and I felt like I was being scammed! I went to Dr. Ashley Magovern, she diagnosed me correctly, put my mind at ease with her personable & professional bedside manner and treated my skin issues with a simple regimen of topical cream medication and my skin issues resolved soon after. Dr. Ashley Magovern sincerely cared about helping me and my individual needs as a patient.
