Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The Doctor and staff at this office are wonderful! As someone who is having difficulty with middle age and just now realizing the importance of good skincare, I made an appointment after a friend highly recommended Dr Vafaie. She listened to all my concerns and patiently explained the options I have. I had been considering having what I thought was an old filler nodule dissolved under my eye and had visited someone who had recommended getting it dissolved, however I had cold feet. Thank goodness I met with Dr Vafaie as this nodule was actually a cholesterol deposit, which is not something you dissolve. She was able to take care of it easily and it healed quickly. She also performed an amazing facial peel before my wedding which made my thin wrinkles disappear and enhanced my complexion taking years off! They say brides 'glow' on their wedding day but it certainly doesn't hurt having a little help! Very highly recommended Vafaie Dermatology for whatever skincare or aging needs you

I am indebted to Dr. Vafaie for spotting my skin cancers very early, as she monitors me often and like a hawk. She has expertly performed Mohs and other related skin cancer surgeries on me, and is a genius at minimizing scars. Also super talented with dermal fillers. This is top-tier level care. Highly and heartily recommend!

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!

I’m in front of the camera quite a bit and am image conscious. Dr. Janet Vafaie was referred to me by my colleague and I agree : she’s amazing at Injections for Btox she’s never done anything less than perfect for my Restalyn shots to turn back the clock. Love this MD and dermatologist
