Polite, professional, no non-sense approach, I was there for a Workman's Comp. issue he explained the entire process to me quickly and efficiently.

Dr. Sofen was amazing. He removed a lipoma from my forehead with little or no pain. He was gentle and provided me with clear instructions. I was very nervous but he reassured me that everything would be fine during the procedure.
