Traumatizing appt, Valerie really should not be working with children, my sons experience was horrific. She had no idea what she was doing, my husband had to call 5x to get our lab results transformed to the competent dermo on Pt. Dume. Her staff is clueless .

She may specialize in skin cancer surgery but Dr. Vafaie is an amazing cosmetic dermatologist . I’ve treated my spider veins with sclerotherapy(not cheap ) and she’s the only one who got them to go away. I love her and the girls Darlena and Sara are so sweet and helpful. Thanks Dr!

In all my years of staying young I’ve never had better cosmetic injections with Restalyn and Botx in my face than when I started with Dr. Vafaie! She’s truly an artist with a steady hand. She always knows when to say “no more “ to keep me natural . I haven’t seen anyone but Dr. Vafaie since 2010. Thanks Doctor V
