Patient Comments (8)
Lenexa, KS |
Dr. Aires is among the elite in his knowledge of dermatology and the latest research. He is one of the most compassionate and caring physicians I have met. As such, he is a great listener. But what sets Dr. Aires apart from other Dr.’s, is his sole concern for his patients’ well-being and holistic health. If he believes he is not the medical expert to meet your medical needs, he works tirelessly to ensure you get the appropriate medical advice and see the best medical providers possible.

Dr Aires is top notch. He is very thorough, professional, to the point and polite- exactly what I appreciate in a doctor. He is also likeable and has good bedside manners. As a patient I've seen my fair share of dermatologists and he is by far the best. I would recommend without hesitation to anyone seeking a dermatologist. In my case he found a small melanoma on my back which likely saved my life and/or kidney (I was a recent transplant patient) just in time as it begun to spread. Grade A++
Kansas City, KS |
HIGHLY recommend! Dr Aires is amazing. He is very, very smart, very kind, and very concerned about his patients. I trust him. He makes sure we know how to reach him if a problem should develop between visits and he sees us timely if we do have a problem. Further, he listens - then he discusses his recommendations and actually works with you to choose a course of action. I have also been, by and large, impressed with his residents. If I ever have a concern, I will just share it with him.

Dr. Aires is extremely knowledgeable. He is open to all questions and explains everything in understandable terms. He is very prompt, yet spends as much time as the patient needs to have procedures done and questions answered. He is personable and interested in his patients' lives. He is always pleasant, kind, and respectful to both his patients and his co-workers. In my opinion, he is an excellent example to the students/residents who work with him.
Overland Park, KS |
Dr. Aires is a very personable physician and has always treated me well. He and his staff are thorough and quick. I highly recommend him and his practice.
Kansas City, MO |
Used my body for his students to practice on. Instead of a non-visible mole removal, I got a four-inch scar with many stitches. Also misdiagnosed another condition leading to a needless year of medication.

I'm a transplant recipient who has been a patient of Dr. Aries and Dr. Lui there at KU Med Dermatology Clinic in KC. KS. for quite a few years now. Dr Aries is a competent and honest doctor who sincerely cares for his patients. He's compassionate, kind, always patiant and gives good helpful advice. Dr Aries is always thinking of my future and what's best for me. I'm very thankful to Dr Aries along with so many other good doctors there at KU Med, for adding so many years to my life expectancy
New York, NY |
He is a nice guy and very personable, but he basically handed my care over to the resident. I had 4 moles removed. He marked me and she took over. She messed up and sutured them too tight. They ended up busting open. Now I am seeing a plastic surgeon for the scars that are going to have to be revised.
