Dr. Esfahani and his staff were very thorough and pleasant during my recent visit. He explained everything he did during my TBSE and gave me comfort in knowing my skin concerns were normal. I highly recommend Dr. Esfahani.

Dr. Esfehani removed a wart, he simply squirted liquid nitrogen and it took under 5 minutes. However, he billed it as outpatient surgery rather than an office visit. He took home an additional $100 by billing it as an outpatient surgery rather than an office visit, and it cost me $230 because it hit my deductible, instead of a $20 copay for an office visit. I asked him to change it to an office visit but he refused. Other dermatologists in his group bill have done the exact same thing but bill it as an office visit. Very disappointed. I feel gouged and will not return to see him. I don't know how two doctors in the same medical group can do the exact same thing but bill differently for it. I will continue to dispute this bill.

Dr. Esfahani is highly unprofessional and very difficult to get a hold of. I suffer from chronic eczema and I’ve been a patient of his for about a year. Yet getting a hold of him is extremely difficult. I’ve called his office in the past week about 4-5 times now just in the last week because I don’t have anymore medication and I’m going on a trip and he still has yet to respond. It’s a very frustrating matter when you cannot get a hold of a physician that you’re supposed to be able to depend on.

Great doctor! He had to remove several growths from scalp and the procedure was entirely painless. Always made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. Gave good followup directions. Very pleasant personality.

Dr. Esfahani and his assistant removed a growth on my temple and the procedure went flawlessly. Both of them were easy to talk to and were willing to take the time to explain what would be performed and why is was being done. Dr. Esfahani has a wonderful personality and I was very impressed with the experience. I highly recommend him.
