Don’t walk...RUN as fast away as you can from this quack, she was meant to take over her fathers practice....BIG FAIL, she is under review at the board of review & should not be treating children. She traumatized my 9 yr. old child... she is a horrifying human being! Her staff is incompetent as well, all very sad.

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

Dr. Janet treats me and my spouse for skin cancer. We moved here temporarily after our daughter had her third baby but with our history of Texas sun exposure we have found a great doctor and enjoy living here in west la with family. Dr. Vafaie has been our dermatologist for years and we aren’t going anywhere. I personally also see her for otox and love her skin commandments. My husband is grateful for how basic she makes his skin care and post operation routine.

Dr. Vafaie and her team are so great! They treated my skin cancer with mohs after I was referred by my internist for a new growth on my face. Not only was the teak professional but they also did a great job following up. Lately after my 40th I felt the need for a freshening up of my skin so I went to her for Bhotox and fillers. I can't emphasize how natural the results are! She's truly talented at what she does. I feel great and I'm cancer free. I definitely won't trust anyone else for my face.

Dr Vafaie is quick on her feet. I first saw her for a spot on my neck that kept bleeding it turned out to be a basal cell cancer. She performed mohs surgery and years later I have no scar and no cancer. I love her staff especially Sara and Darlena
