Dr. Jacob Baral has the following 2 specialties
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I saw Dr. Baral for a consultation and then for a followup. He was unable to diagnose my rash despite taking skin samples for lab tests. But this is not my main complaint. The doctor barely looked at me for a few minutes and did not give me a chance to ask my questions. I dealt mostly with his assistant/nurse. I felt like I was being rushed the entire time because they had booked so many other patients. The waiting room was quite full. This doctor just tries to maximize the number of patients he sees a day so he can make more money. As a result, the quality of the care that he provides is very disappointing.
Saw this doctor for about 4 months last summer. On 1st meeting he came into the room and started evaluating on me for things other than why I had come in in the 1st place. On further visits I received treatment for acne and he didn't ask any questions or give me any options- just started injecting my face with shots w/o explaining what they were. Also started trying to treat me for dry skin which I don't really care about and on top of that insisted that I by his own line of very expensive sunblock. Also billing was a nightmare, I had requested that they send me a bill in writing on several occasions- the amount owed kept changing when I called to check over the phone and it took forever to get the bill in writing. I don't recommend unless you like VERY old school doctors who treat you like a test specimen and don't include you in your own treatment process.
While this doctor does seem to know his specialty, dealing with him was such a pain that I won't return. He doesn't listen to you. He asks a question, but if you try to expand on anything beyond a brief answer to his question, he interrupts and cuts you off. And he's difficult to understand. On each of three visits, he spent very little time with me. And perhaps worst of all, he seemed more interested in having me coming back every two weeks (for a test here and a test there, to tweak prescriptions, etc) than actually giving me treatment and prescriptions that would manage my problem. I don't intend to visit a specialist every two weeks for the rest of my life -- gets a little expensive and impacts work. Billing was a pain, and on one of the three visits, the wait was very unacceptably long. I do not recommend this doctor.
I love Dr Baral! He has an old school charm and is the most efficient doctor I hhave ever visited. I have never had to wait in his waiting room and he doesn't waste my valuable time. He is methodical in his examination and diagnosis (doesn't jump to conclusions but when he identified my problem he nailed it quickly (2 other doctors did not!). If you need a dermatologist in NYC, you can't go past Dr B!
