Dr. Akhavan is patient and soft spoken he takes the time to explain every option available leaving you the opportunity to form your own decision and formulate the best treatment plan for your particular concern. He follows up with you and is very considerate about how you are doing and how the treatments affects are. His staff is very pleasant and low key it is a calming atmosphere.My daughter was suffering from horrible acne conditions and doctor Akhavans hydro facials helped her immensely.

Easily the most competent physician I have ever been to. I see Dr. Arash for both skin cancer screenings and minor cosmetic procedures and he is the best. I have already recommended him to almost my entire family and friends.
