Excellent experience. Dr. Hendi has the best "bedside manners" of any doctor I have visited. His staff is friendly and very knowledgeable, particularly Ashley who prepped me for surgery and thoroughly explained the procedure. Dr. Hendi was very patient and took his time with no rushing. The office runs very efficiently like a swiss watch! I can't say enough good things about them.

My experience with Dr. Hendi and his office was the most professional care I've ever received. His staff was courteous, kind, and went out of their way to be helpful. The waiting room was calm and even had munchies and water. I waited hardly five minutes each time I went in. Dr. Hendi's assistants were smart, professional, and well-informed. The doctor himself did a fantastic job, had great follow-up care, and took the time to chat with me. I can't recommend it enough!

Outstanding care. Great staff. Extremely competent. What I liked that they had prepared answers for new patients, leaflets, so that you could go into the consultation in prepared fashion.

Mohs is never fun but Dr. Hendi's office (from setting up the appointment, to the actual procedure and post op) was terrific. The front office staff are lovely - the assistants are great and Dr. Hendi is one of the most compassionate and kind doctors in the business.
