Dermatology and Laser Group Testimonials

Came here to see Dr. Akhavan and the experience from start to finish was more than I could hope for. From the moment I booked the appointment I could tell the office is extremely well organized and thoughtful towards their patients’ needs…
Doug R., ( Via Yelp )
I cannot recommend Dr. Akhavan’s practice enough. Dr. Akhavan answers all my questions, no matter how dumb. Unlike my last dermatologist, I felt that they listened to me and allowed me to have input on decisions regarding my health care…
Patricia O., ( Via Yelp )
Dr Akhavan is an outstanding dermatologist. I went in for a skin check and he discovered an abnormal mole. Note that I was 8 months pregnant at the time…
Anda B., ( Via Yelp )
Dr. Akhavan came highly recommended by my close friend and colleague. Although I trust my friend’s word, I still checked the doc out on Yelp. As of today, Dr. Akhavan only has FIVE STAR reviews and you know what? Everything everyone says about him is true!…
Helen L., ( Via Yelp )
Dr. Akhavan was prompt, courteous and informative. I went on the day of snowpocalypse 2014. It didn’t matter, the doctor and his staff were in the office ready for my visit…
Radoslav A., ( Verified ZocDoc Patient )
