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.

Doctor had good freezing technique and control. Treatment has been effective without painful burning. Only discomfort has been mild itching. I have experienced poor technique and pain with previous providers.

Dr. Zaleski- Larsen does a great annual skin check, answers all of my questions (and has informative handouts she sends home with me). I had to have a simple procedure, and she did it during my annual visit; I didn't have to come back! The staff is also great. I highly recommend West Dermatology, and especially Dr. Zaleski-Larsen.

Dr. Zaleski-Larsen is wonderful. We can't say enough about her professionalism, bed side manner, and level of expertise. Making a new patient appointment was painless, and the staff got us in quickly when we called to explain that we were concerned about several areas of skin that looked cancerous. We were given the option of filling out all of the new patient paperwork online which was so easy and convenient, and the check-in process was a breeze. Everyone on staff at Dr. Zaleski-Larsen's o

Dr. Larsen has such a compassionate and warm demeanour. I feel like she truly listens and cares deeply about all my skin concerns. Her staff and office are top-notch! You cannot trust just anyone with your skin-her credentials distinguish her from all the dermatologists in the area. I've seen her for both medical and cosmetic visits--- she is planning to do a full face laser resurfacing to rejuvenate my skin and liposuction on my abdomen for stubborn buldges--I cannot wait for the results!
