I gave them 3 chances - 2 of which at my expense. The first time I recieved a consulation with a PA and they didnt even have a dermatologist see me - I recieved no information, no hypothesis on my issue, no help. The second time I requested a dermatologist and again got the PA. I got the dermatologist to come in for about 10 seconds and again offered no help. Third time, waited over 1 month for Dr. Paz and they waited until I arrived for my appointment to tell me that I cant see him.

Who ever is at the front desk should be fired. Only cares about money didn't even care to ask how they could help. From the get go of our conversation she already knew she wasn't going to set up an appointment. Really just reflects the morale of the office. SICK.

I was not impressed. It was my second visit when I briefly met the doctor. I had to google the findings to understand what he told me. Did not explain things; didn't seem to care, and seemed to be more concerned more about money than anything.

My father had a skin biopsy. No one called with the report. One week later I called the office and was read what turns out to be either a fake report or a made up report. The message was it was not serious and no follow up needed. I called and insisted he be seen again. He was then told it was a potentially fatal autoimmune disease. None of his physicians have been contacted or given any reports more than 2 weeks after Dr. Paz's office received the pathology. The standard of care is not met.

I have been a patient of Dr Paz for 3 years and a patient with Acne Rosacea for over 20 years. He has cleared up my skin where other doctors have tried (including a SF hospital). My friends and family say how wonderful my face looks and I feel beautiful. I highly recommend him and staff for any dermatology treatment or skin surgery. He is skilled and experienced in handling patients of all ages and always, always gives respect to any situation or patient. Thank you Dr. Paz and staff!

Dr. Paz and his staff are the kindest most caring office Dr Paz genuinely cares about you as a person and your needs. I have had many surgeries to remove skin cancer. Dr Paz made me feel very at ease and comfortable during my surgeries He has a great bedside manner very knowledgable in the treatment of skin cancer. I would definitely recommend him. Many of my family members also get treatment from Dr. Paz and are very happy with him. Thank you for all you have done for me Dr. Paz.

Have cancer? Go elsewhere! Dr. Paz left a fast-growing cancer on my body for a month. He could have dealt with it in a week. He said he was sending tissue out to a lab. Actually, he looks at biopsies himself, and waits a long time to tell you his finding so you will THINK that he is sending stuff to a lab far away. When I asked to see the lab report, he added another week of delay to punish me for discovering his lie. He was cold-hearted and dishonest to me. I believe he endangered my life.
