What People Say About Dr. Arta Farshidi, MD

I had Mohs surgery on 8/27/18. Dr. Farshidi performed the procedure & she removed (1) layer of tissue which showed cancer. About 1 hour later she removed another layer of tissue & this one was cancer-free. Dr. Farshidi is an excellent Dermatologist who is current on all medical procedures relating to dermatology. Dr. Farshidi skills are "exceptional" & this is coupled with excellent "people skills". Dr. Farshidi is supported by an excellent staff! I highly recommend Dr. Farshidi.

I was referred for possible removal of a pre-cancerous growth on my back. I expected to scheduled for a surgery date, but Dr. Farshidi said, no, she could remove it right then and there. She failed to shave the area prior to the surgery (they had run out of razors!), proceeding to remove a growth the size of a quarter. A subsequent visit to my internist revealed a serious infection requiring heavy antibiotics. The internist was appalled (it's never good when doctor gasps while examining you).

Dr. Farshidi is AMAZING!! I have a history of moles and have been seen by several dermatologists, but, Dr. Farshidi is THE best! She's extremely sweet, energetic, knowledgeable in her profession and funny! I've gone through several mole screenings and each time, she displays such accuracy, empathy and professionalism. And, her staff is so friendly as well!

BEWARE - I verified my medical insurance was accepted by them before going into their office for a couple of 10-minute visits. Her advice: Just wait and it will go away on it's own. No medicine or treatment. What a waste of my time. Then I got a call about 6 months later saying that they made a mistake and my insurance wasn't accepted by their office. I just got a bill in the mail for over $300. I have a bad feeling that this could be a common practice by them according to other reviews. AVOID
