in Pacific Palisades, CA |
She's a hero In my eyes Not only did she find a melanoma that my general dermatologist neglected and spent two hours in surgery on my stomach When she finished I could see the happiness and exhaustion. In her face She's really a hero and talented The most unassuming genius dr with a true talent for her work God bless you dr for helping me and my family

in Los Angeles, CA |

Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Vafaie is top notch! I had never been to a dermatologist before visiting Dr. Vafaie and was a bit nervous for the visit. I was soothed the minute I walked in by the doctor and her energetic staff. Dr. Vafaie was extremely knowledgeable and spent extra time to thoroughly explain why my skin had developed a sudden hyperpigmentation. For treatment she put me on a regime that turned my skin around, giving me the even and flawless skin I always dreamed of! I would definitely recommend.
Westwood, CA |
Dr. Vafaie is the absolute best!! She did the most throrough MOHS procedure on my mom. There is absolutely no scar!! Her work is absolutely flawless. After going to both the beautiful Malibu and Westwood offices I was so impressed. Also, I have been dealing with acne and acne scarring and she has helped immensely. There is no one better!! I am happier than ever and my skin is RADIANT. Thank You Dr. Vafaie!!!!
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr vafaie is not only a dr but specializes in skin cancer surgery and mohs I go to her for fillers near my eyes and had mohs surgery (basal cancer of skin ) on my nose There's almost no scar one year later She's a true talent FYI I've been to both offices
in Los Angeles, CA |
I Have been going to Dr. vafaie for several years now and will never go anywhere else. she is a true professional and the best dermatologist is Los Angeles. There is no wait time and appointments are made with ease. She has a friendly staff and clean and bright offices.
in Los Angeles, CA |
best dermatologist and mohs surgeon in southern cal she operated on my dads squamous cell on face with mohs. no scar six months later she truly cares and has a talent
in Santa Monica, CA |
Best skin cancer surgeon for face. My grandmother had squamous ? Cancer on her forehead another dermatologist recommended dr Vafaie because she performs mohs She's so exact and her work is so delicate it took a long time for the scar to disappear completely but three years later no scar and no cancer recurrence She's great she's very delicate knowledgeable and honest All around amazing dr can't believe she's been practicing dermatology over 10 years and is board certified dermatologist too
in los angeles, ca |
I have never met such a knowledgeable dermatologist. She is definitely worth a visit. I had a horrible reaction to a unrelated esthetician chemical peel and went to see Dr. Vafaie after my family recommended her. She was an absolute delight. She took the time to explain in detail my situation. I would recommend her deeply, and will be coming back to her office for All my future chemical peels and dermatology issues.
in Burbank, CA |
Went to dr vafaie who wAs referred to me by my primary dr, for my skin cancer history and for a follow up on a biopsy my dr did that showed squamous cell cancer . She performed mohs surgery on my nose and got all the tumor out !!! She sutured me meticulously with no noticeable scar a perfectionist to say the least!!!!Will never go elsewhere
in Los Angeles, CA |
"Was referred to her by my primary dr -who did a biopsy on a spot on my neck . It was a squamous cell cancer . My primary told me dr vafaie does a special procedure called mohs to get all the cancer out. Not only was dr vafaie steady and gentle on mohs day... I have no scar. Also they put my mind at peace because they don't charge for laser scar removal (although they said patients never need it) thanks dr vafaie !!! She is an amazing dr and surgeon
in Los Angeles, CA |
This has to be one of the worst experiences I've had with a doctor. It took her staff 10 days to get my prescription over to my pharmacy. Because of that, I had to move my follow up appointment because I hadn't been on the antibiotic long enough for the doctor to do a proper follow up exam. Then the staff never changed the date in the books. So, now they are charging me a $50 "no show" fee due to their error. I refuse to pay, obviously. The staff is also rude and lies about their mistakes.
in North Hollywood, CA |
Dr. Janet is so good at Mohs surgery, I would never go to anyone else! Her care and skill is amazing and scads almost invisible!
in Los Angeles, CA |
I was expecting MOHS surgery to be really terrifying, but Dr. Vafaie and her staff made the experience much easier than I was expecting. I was mostly scared of having a crazy scar on my face, but about a month later, there is hardly any evidence that I had anything done! Dr. Vafaie's surgical work is top-notch, and she even offered me free laser treatments to what little scar I have left. Really a wonderful Doctor.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Great skin cancer surgeon and MOHs surgeon ! My cousin was originally a patient of dr Vafaie and had a good experience I have a family history of basal cell cancer and I saw her for a spot on my temple that was previously biopsied my another dermatologist who forgot to call me with results for 6 months Anyhow I went to dr Vafaie and I looked horrid for about four days after MOHs but now you can't even find the scar. she never promised zero scar! Can't recommend her enough
in West Hollywood, CA |
I highly recommend Dr. vafaie. She took her time examining me and performed a laser procedure. I am super happy with the results. She is a true professional. I didn't have any waiting time and was seen promptly at my appointment time. Her staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Her office is beautiful and clean.
in North Hollywood, CA |
I am dying to get back to her for my Fraxel! There is little downtime and it seems to bathe the face in a luminous light. I like how this doctor is loving and not judging of jitters. There's a small burn feeling during but after you look so good. The down time is red face like sun exposure but you can't go in the sun. I love love love the pulsing warmth afterwards like something good is happening and after a treatment or two your wrinkles are airbrushed flatter and you glow like a young person.
in Bell, CA |
Went to the dr Bc my girlfriend said I needed a mole looked at (she's my nurse ) I went to a guy in Brentwood who butchered my face . Dr Vafaie resurfaced the scar and I look like a million bucks ! The treatment was painless. Next up is her laser for my acne scars my best friend swears his skin is perfect because of her
in Pacific Palisades, CA |
Best mohs surgeon, plastic surgeon and best skin care line and best laser center I'm a model with horrible white stretch marks on my thighs I had six laser sessions w her and they are almost gone!!! Her hydration serum is bomb My mom also goes to her after her bout with basal cell twice Dr Vafaie Performed mohs surgery and left her scar -free and cancer free Thanks dr v you are really the best
in Los Angeles, ca |
Excelled lasers and excellent MOHs surgeon I went to her for laser surgery for white stretch marks And also for filler on my tired eyes
in Los Angeles, CA |
We were referred by my doctor for MOHs surgery for my mother in law. She has little or no scar and is skin cancer free. Very close attention to detail. Thank you Dr Vafaie
in Los Angeles, CA |
Im new to the area and asked my co-workers for a recommendation for a Dermatologist. I had seen the same Dermatologist since I was in high school up North. Dr. Vafaie was recommended. I had a MOHs procedure done and had heard good and bad experiences from a few friends about Mohs. I can say that Dr Vafaie made me very comfortable and eased my apprehension. The scar is barely visible and was told by my old Dr that I should expect a scar. She did a great job. Highly recommend a consult.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Best skin cancer surgeon (MOHS) surgeon And laser center is best in la
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. V has been an exceptional dermatologist for my family and I. We have been going to her for years & can't be any more happier. She has been keeping me up with lasers. In addition I just brought my mom and aunt to her for MOHs. Very thorough, knowledgeable & caring. Her staff and office is wonderful.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr Vafaie is an awesome surgeon She spent two hours reconstructing my moms face after she performed MOHs surgery They have the top of the line lasers for facial wrinkles and stretch marks in the Westwood office I've also been to the Malibu office For sclerotherpay(leg vein surgery) She's just brilliant
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Vafaie is a lifesaver. Last minute, I had some kind of irritable skin condition that just happened before my audition. Dr. Vafaie prescribed medication and then i bought one of the products that she had in her office. I was cured before the audition. Thank you to her assistant Shaneece who fit me in when there was a cancellation.
Incredible Doctor! Highly reccommend. She performed a surgery to remove basal cell cancer for me. From the beginning, she was very attentive and showed concern. She also took the time to explain the entire procedure to me thoroughly and I just knew I was in good hands. Now, a month later the scar is almost entirely gone. She is great! I'm also considering visiting her laser center in Westwood for cosmetic treatments soon!
in Los Angeles, CA |
