Dr. Oliver and his staff are consistently helpful and efficient. In addition, they are always friendly and never make you feel rushed. You are always greeted with a smile, and that attitude continues throughout the appointment. Treatments are effective and compassionately administered. In every case, Dr. Oliver himself phoned me with biopsy results and explained everything. I would recommend him and his office without reservation.

Very profesional doctor, took him a couple sessions to treat my alopecia and was totally worth it, no more bold patches. He makes the awful injection treatment more bearable. The personnel is friendly and makes your visit as comfortable as possible.

Today I submitted my medical information sent to me via email. His office staff Samantha reassured me she would help me finalize what areas were questionable to me. Easy to get to. Plus ample parking. Upon entering the office, Sam brought me to an examination room and we finalized my medical history. Dr Oliver greeted me and took note of all my areas of concern. Sam made notes of areas being treated. She also provided a simple sheet depicting the medications treating my scalp down to my toes, listing the medication and the application methods on how to apply! I praise Dr Oliver for being so personable and his expertise in his field, including his excellent office staff that makes you feel right at home! Thank you Dr Oliver and staff for making me feel right at home!

I was really impressed and grateful for the professional and compassionate care the staff provided. I was truly concerned about my skin concerns and the team not only explained each part of the evaluation thoroughly—they helped ease my anxiety in doing so. I highly recommend SF Dermatology.

Dr. Gary Oliver and his staff are great. Everyone working there is kind, knowledgeable, and quick to follow up on questions and reschedules. Dr. Oliver himself is patient and really listens to his patients. I had a complicated issue where we weren't sure if the cause was fungal, viral, or an allergy. He worked with me over a period over several months to try different ways of alleviating my symptoms. I would highly recommend his office to anyone with dermatological issues.

I am so glad I found Doctor Oliver! He is extremely knowledgable, very personable, and has this super calming demeanor that I love. His assistant is very sweet and great at her job. Additionally it is easy to park and access the office. I like that they are in a quiet corner of a outdoor mall!

Dr Oliver has made my life better for which I am so thankful for. He has been able to stop my terrible itching problem that I had which lasted for 2 months before I saw him. After my initial visit, the itching problem no longer torments me & I feel back to normal. He is awesome!!

Dr Oliver was kind, thorough and generous. He really listened, gave each question thought and research when indicated and was available and open for questions until I felt all my concerns were addressed. He was approachable and caring, and very competent. Office staff was pleasant too. But his answering service for rollover is horrible in every way. I hope he finds a new service. All in all I felt lucky to find him.
