A visit with Dr M is always a stress-free experience. She clearly and concisely answers all questions I might have and makes excellent suggestions. Dr. M is very personable and down to earth. Her aesthetic eye consistently yields superior and natural looking results. She excels in precision and attention to detail, and I always leave her office looking and feeling relaxed and uplifted. I give her my highest recommendation.
For those of us who unwisely wished for a youthful tan and neglected our skin, a careful, attentive and qualified Dermatologist is a must. Dr. Radha Mikkilineni is one of a kind. She is my angel on earth, carefully surveying my skin issues and, I truly believe, extending my life. She will not be the best kept secret in town for long. Kudos.

I have known Dr. Radha for over a decade and I am honored to be both her patient because she is outstanding in all she does. On a professional level, she is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, practical and caring. My daughter and I have seen her for various medical issues over the years, which she diagnosed and treated seamlessly. She is also very gifted-- her eye for aesthetics is highly developed and her enhancements are most beautiful and natural. Her standards have always been very high, and they will stay very high, and this is one of many reasons I feel lucky to be her patient.
She’s made me feel pretty again after years of “so-so”. If you want to keep your skin fresh and most important, keep it healthy, she’s the only person I will continue to trust. She’s never let me or my skin down
Dr. Mikkilineni is one of the most talented and highly skilled physicians I have come across. She is very compassionate and caring along with being extremely knowledgeable on the latest cosmetic techniques, lasers, and trends. Her technique is very well thought out and she makes sure the patient’s needs are her top concern taking the time to make sure whatever treatment is done is at the highest level of excellence!
I cannot say enough about her talent, sincerity, her comforting approach. Dr. Mikkilineni is simple the best and would never consider going anywhere else!
Over the last decade, I have worked as a dermatology registered nurse with numerous top dermatologists in NYC. There is no one I would recommend more for general dermatology or aesthetic concerns than Dr. Mikkilineni. Her extensive experience as a dermatopathologist gives her the ability to diagnose difficult dermatological conditions that separates her from her colleagues. While I miss working with and for her, I am a better dermatology nurse having worked along-side such a caring and thoughtful physician.
