Canton, GA |
Went with dry skin on my face and a mole on my scalp. Walked out with DEEP Shavings. Only to be told, now the more expensive surgery is necessary to repair what they did. Get a second opinion before allowing them to deep cut on your body.

went to his office with my daughter who happen to have two skin problems. They told us they will address only one problem right now. To address second problem we have to make another appointment. You get be kidding me...... Trying to rip off, please stay away go somewhere else
Marietta, GA |
The staff is great, but Dr. Kayal is only interested in pushing expensive products and procedures. He is intrusive and rude and has no qualms about suggesting procedures to "fix" problems HE has with your appearance. Several times now he has given me completely unsolicited advice concerning how he would "fix" problem areas never identified by me as areas of concern or dissatisfaction. Zero bed side manner and way too aggressive for me.

As best as I can tell Kayal has a habit of taking deliberately small margins on simple mole removals to essentially guarantee a more involved next visit if the lab work comes back with concerns. I have seen this on more then one occasion from him. On my last visit he left about 80% of a problematic mole. I noticed right then while he was still in the room, and was reassured that no he got it “all”. Avoid this Dr if you can. Unless you just like going in for extra avoidable visits.

Be ready to be upsold on a bunch of procedures that you don't need. I'm only 40; I don't need $2000 in face injections. Not the place to go if you're on a budget. Pricing is super high based on the area and market. They offered me an incentive/points program of sorts, but no staff members were familiar with the program or could explain it to me. The receptionist was really personable, but all the other staff had zero bed side manner. I won't be going back.

Made an appointment for my daughter for 2 problems eczema and acne. We saw a PA who said we could only have one problem addressed. Spent no more than 10 minutes in the room, didn't even touch her face or examined her and got charged for a level 3 visit! I am a physician but did not disclose that to that office. Worst costumer service ever

Very misleading in their test results and treatments.

Awe are very disappointed with this practice. I made my husbands appointment and specifically told them he needed a mole removed from his face. He arrived this am and never saw the doctor and was told the doctor did not do this They should have told me on the phone I would have called another doctor He will go back for follow up and then we are done with this practice.
in Marietta, GA |
Underwhelmed. Diagnosis was quick. The PA did not look directly at skin, just glanced, and determined needs in under five minutes. All prescriptions were too expensive (over $100 each). Dr. was out of town. I went elsewhere, for a second opinion - during the exam they found a pre-cancerous spot on my face that Dr. Kayal's office may have noticed had the exam been thorough. Unfortunate.
in Marietta GA |
Dr. Kayal has been my dermatologist for quite a few years. I have been pleased with Dr. Kayal; however his office staff is not well trained. This situation has deteriorated to intolerable at the new Lacey Street office. I hope this can be corrected soon.
in Kennesaw, GA |
It appears that Dr. Kayal has invested a lot into providing pleasant surroundings and a comfortable experience for his patients. He is a very friendly person and comes across as very confident and professional. His staff is great and help by explaining what's going on and answering questions.
in Marietta, GA |
Excellent experience with the initial appointment with the PA. Nightmare going forward. He performs unnecessary procedures. Staff does not return calls. It has been horrible.
