I had terrible rashes all over my body. My skin was so itchy I scratched until I bled. I called my Dr. He immediately called Dr Mariwalla to see me. It was end of day but she waited to see me. She is extremely nice, helpful, patient, and listens to you. She is (I feel) extremely knowledgeable and knows her craft!! I was having a extremely bad bout of Lupus. Which I fine a lot of Drs aren’t really fully knowledgeable of this disease. I can tell you that she knows and understands lupus and it’s levels. She put me on the proper medication. I felt better within a day. I thank you Dr Mariwalla for making special time to see me when I know you could have already been home. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her!!

Dr Mariwalla is lovely- listens to concerns and offers suggestions. No pressure to have procedures or rx's that you're not comfortable with. Front desk people are another story- no personality, very rude, prefer to spend time on their personal phone while you stand there waiting. Phone calls are not returned with answers to questions despite their assurance. Very off-putting to patients.

1st visit and saw Dr Bacigalupi who was extremely attentive and professional. Staff was friendly and efficient.. only nitpick I have is that when I went to pay my co-pay, I waited several minutes because the nurse was "chit-chatting" on her cell phone.. after a while, she said to her friend, "I have to go, there is a patient in front of me".. thanks a lot, lol

found the receptionists to be quite rude especially in their spa upstairs. it was as if i was bothering them for being there and god forbid you ask a question! dr. mariwalla was short with her responses as if i was a waste of her time and on top of all that she didn't even examine my skin! she just looked at me and said go upstairs to the spa and make an appointment. gave them a second chance and came back only to experience the same treatment with a female p.a. who was even more rude!

I had been suffering for 4 yrs from atopic dermatitis after being misdiagnosed twice. My quality of life was significantly compromised. I finally found relief after one appointment with Dr. Mariwalla, to whom I am so grateful! She sits down with her patients, listens, addresses and responds to concerns, and prescribes realistic regimens. The texture of my skin even returned to normal which I didn't think possible. Dr. Mariwalla is a talented, diligent, and well trained dermatologist.
