Patient Comments (6)
in Simi Valley, CA |
Dr. Sofen and his staff were polite, professional and personable. Dr. Sofen took the time to fully explain to me the process I should expect and his resposibilties within that process. I very much appreciated that. This was my first appointment with Dr. Sofen and I was very impressed with him and his staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Sofen to my family and friends.
in Claremont, CA |
I was impressed, I didnt have to wait past my appointment time to be seen, Dr. Sofen was compassionate, knowledgable, and took the time to speak with me rather than other doctors I have experienced who are in and out of the exam room in less than several minutes. I would recommend his professional services to anyone seeking a dermatologist.

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.
