I went to see Dr. Kalajian for a growth on my face that was on my right cheek. To my surprise it wasn't a wart but was confronted with the 'C' word. The staff explained that it was not fast spreading or highly invasive and scheduled surgery for the following week. I left comforted that I was in their hands. I had over 40 stitches for two spots that had to be surgically removed but following their post surgery instruction there are no signs of the surgery. A remarkable job by a caring doctor.

I have years of experience with basal cell skin cancel and with 4 different dermotologists. Mohs surgery has always been the end result. Although I have had decent care with each one previously, I have to say that the most recent mohs procedure with Dr. Kalajian was by far the most positive experience. The office staff were very caring and Dr. Kalajian was sincere and compassionate concerning my needs.

Dr. Kalajian recently performed Mohs and reconstructive surgery on my nose. The Mohs surgery involved going back five times (same day) to remove more cancerous tissue until microscopic analysis of the removed tissue confirmed that all cancer was removed. I am VERY HAPPY with the results of both surgeries!! In addition, because of Dr. Kalajian's expertise and performance, my scar is hardly visible. I would recommend Dr. Kalajian to anyone needing skin cancer surgery.

Would recommend anyone go to see Dr. Kalajian for any skin needs. He treated a squamous cell carcinoma and a basal cell carcinoma on my head and face with great results. It was painless and excellent results, so what more could you ask? Very friendly and obviously a family man. Yahoo!

My husband and I both have had allot of skin cancer. My husband had early stage of melanoma. Dr. Kalajian has had to perform major surgery on his ear including skin graphs and his back and two Moes procedures on my face to remove skin cancer. His work is impeccable. He not only is a good doctor and surgeon but is very personable and caring. His staff is truly amazing and caring in the same way. We would and have highly recommended Dr. Kalajian to anyone who needs to see a skin doctor.

I've been going to Dr. Kalajian for a couple years now and by far he is one of the friendliest and dedicated physicians I go to. Dr. K always welcomes you with a smile and comforting conversation before starting your examination. I have had a couple moles removed and a Mohs procedure and each time Dr. K and his staff do a great job at making it a painless and a very professional experience. I personally appreciate how much care Dr. K. takes at making sure he leaves little to no scar.

Dr. Kalajian is friendly and easily answers my many questions. He has presented me with new options now available for my treatment, that work better than I ever thought possible. I feel very fortunate to have him for my dermatologist. If you have sun-related skin issues, do not put off getting help from him.

Dr Kalajian is a skilled and caring doctor. My brother is DD and has developed some skin conditions that required surgery to remove. Dr. Kalajian performed the surgery with some of the best skills I have ever seen. His closing techniques left me in awe...Never seen a wound closure done with such precision and accuracy. Since this was on the patient's face, he took great care to assure the wound would not pucker. Dr Kalajian's bedside manner is also exceptional...felt he truly cared.
