Dr. Shirazi is located in a older building in La Jolla. Right away from the moment I entered the front office I felt the atmosphere to be cold & unwelcoming; somewhat pertencious, so I immediately felt uncomfortable upon entering the office. The receptionist does not listen to your questions & apperas to be reading off a premade script, she sounds robotic, & her answers often dont apply to the questions asked. The doctor appeared to be strenuously trying to be professionally friendly; however her mannerisms felt insincere-- she left the treatment room abruptly after administered procedure. I only had 3 procedures & the quality of her work was decently good, her fees are standard, but I will not be returning. There are better doctors with a more pleasant office experience.

Dr. Shirazi is an expert in cosmetic dermatology, also specializing in acne and skin cancer. She has the eye for beauty yet is very practical. She is straight forward and honest, with your best interest in mind. Not only is she amazing, her staff is too! I highly recommend her to all of my friends and family.

I have been a regular patient of Dr Sharazi for a number of years now. She has done my Squamous cell skin cancer surgeries including Mohs, regular checkups and laser procedures. She extremely through, and I have upmost confidence in her as a physician. However, she is a wonderful person and very caring besides. Her new location is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The office staff is very helpful and polite which is always a plus. I’ll be returning in 6 mos. for a regular skin cancer checkup.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shirazi for 3 1/2 years. She is hands down one of the top injectors for dermal fillers and Botox. I was quite skeptical about having these injections but she made the entire process easy. She was re-assuring and supportive to my needs. The overall results are so natural and I am beyond thrilled with the outcome. Being a female dermatologist, she has that insight and special cosmetic touch that gives the patient exceptional results.

Dr. Azi (that's what I call her) has been my longtime dermatologist at Scripps. She's wonderful, smart, kind, amazing surgical skills. She's removed several growths and barely any visible scar. She is a true expert and she keeps my skin looking natural and youthful.

She's been my dermatologist for a long time and I could not be more grateful to her. She has helped my skin in so many ways and I trust her completely. Dr. Shirazi has done a number of skin cancer surgeries and she does such a beautiful job there's hardly ever a scar. I have also had filler work by her on several occasions and the results are natural and beautiful, as she puts in just the right amount in the right places. she's a true artist, she's also super smart!

I have been seeing Dr. Shirazi for my skin treatments for over 5 years. She is so knowledgeable and has incredible surgical skills. she has removed 2 moles from my face and I can't even find the scars, there are none! Asides from being a wonderful dermatologist and skin surgeon, she is also very kind. She truly cares about all her patients. She has performed several laser treatments on my face and neck and I couldn't be happier with the results.

She is an incredible dermatologist with meticulous technique, an artistic eye, and so smart! She is a real dermatologist, not a fake one, and treats real skin conditions and has done several filler treatments for my lips, cheeks, and under eyes. My fillers always look natural and beautiful. I have also had the fraxel laser with her, and some scar treatments. Her work is impeccable and she is very kind, and pretty too. I recommend her to

Dr. Shirazi has been my dermatologist and skin surgeon for a number of years. She has slowed down my skin aging beautifully! She is exceptionally talented, has amazing skills, and I trust her with my skin. I have had several filler procedures performed under her care, as well as a faxel laser. She also does a procedure she calls photorejuvenation, which i love and do regularly. She is very detail oriented, takes great care of me. I highly recommend her!

Can I just say that Dr. Shirazi knows what’s up! I came in with a keloid and she took care of it right away! You can’t even tell it was ever there! I also had really bad acne and my face is bomb and healthy now.

Dr. Shirazi was in rush. Came in, didn't shake hands (had to hold mine out for quite a while),asked about conditions I wanted her to address. She did not do full body scan that the assistant and I had requested, said toe nail fungus was for podiatrists (my dermatologist in Washington, DC treated it) and ignored it, froze several places on my face, biopsied one, did not tell me the cause of scaling on face and scalp (tho I think I know), gave me an OTC sample for the face. Terrible doc.
