Get Your Glow Going
While Dr. Magovern derives great pleasure from addressing these issues, her true love and fascination is skin care.

We are excited to offer Glow MD in the office and now online.

In addition to treating her patients with skill and a smile, Dr. Magovern is thrilled to serve as the medical director of Dermstore, where she uses her exceptional knowledge of skin care products to help people choose their perfect, personal skin care regimen.

First of all, this place is absolutely stunning. Not only is the office aesthetically pleasing, but their team is amazing. The front office staff is always friendly. The nurses are always accommodating and caring. And - they all have amazing skin!! Now THAT is the sign of a good dermatology practice, friends!! I see Natalie for all my laser and Botox needs. She is extremely knowledgeable regarding skin care, and gives me exactly what I need to revive and revitalize my dry and acne prone skin! I also see Jacqueline Tran for medical visits. She is great at providing a simplistic yet comprehensive plan that integrates holistic and traditional medicine, such as recommending probiotics in addition to prescription medications. She has done wonders to address my acne and peri oral dermatitis. Now, onto the products! I can't say enough about the daily brightening pads. My only complaint is that you can't buy in bulk, because they're my everyday staple! Additionally, the hello glow vitamins done wonders for my hormonal acne! All in all, you're in great hands here. From the friendly staff, to the gorgeous atmosphere, and the wonderful treatments they offer - you'll feel lucky to be a patient here.

I have been a patient for over ten years with Dr Ashely Magovern, she has been such an earth Angel. Whenever I'm having skin issues or just want to look refreshed, she always comes up with a plan, and my skin looks flawless every time. The office manager Kimmy ALWAYS goes out of her way to make sure my experience in the office is wonderful and that I have received the results I was looking for. This office makes you feel like family and I will continue being a patient until she stops practicing. Dr M as also treated my Children, my Father, my Aunt, my sister, cousin, and all my close friends. If you are looking for top-of-the-line lasers, amazing injections, and a wonderful dermatologist that focuses on gut health and holistic remedies to figure out the true cause of your acne and other skin issues, this is the woman to go too!!!

Manhattan Dermatology sets the bar for how Dr.'s and patients should conduct business. From the appointment reminders to the booking of your next appointment you are treated with love and respect. Upon arrival you are warmly welcomed, offered your choice of beverage, and always seen expeditiously. The preliminary nurse always works with you to determine your exact needs, then clarifies the visits price. Dr. Magovern is warm, and knows her patients well. She always asks how my business is running and facilitates my procedure with speed and precision. In a world where customer service and care is rare, this office is a gem.
