BEWARE current and new patients!! I have been treated by Dr. Mazin Dhafir for many years, and was always satisfied, although he was always in a hurry! On 2/21/2019, Dr. Mazin Dhafir had his Nurse Practitioner, Colleen Dhafir assist him, she performed cryosurgery on my face. She severely scarred my face! To date, I have had 3 surgeries to try and correct the damage. I have paid thousands of dollars out of my pocket. I am heartbroken, and devasted by this experience!

Told me to see a breast surgeon for a tiny lesion on my nipple. Turns out it waa only a skin tag and removal was unnecessary. I paid over 500 for something that was not cancer and named me for life. I even asked the breast surgeon to scale cells to see if cancer. My gun said it waa not necessary and another term said it only needed a snip. Shouldn't have listened to Dr dhafir and now unhappy for life

Nice doctor but told me I had to have a growth removed on my nipple cause it could be cancer and it turns out it was a skin tag. The doctor he referred me to took off more than the skin tag ,when I still may breast feed. Doesn't a skin tag look different than cancer?and shouldn't a biopsy be done prior to surgery. I had asked that too

Not very thorough, unless you ask for a specific area to check he will freeze a few spots on your face, arms & that's it. Also check ur bill for extra charges :(

Dr. Dhafir is a great doctor but the scheduling at his office is terrible. Wait times frequently exceed an hour and a half and the staff do not call you ahead of your appointment to warn you that you will wait 90 minutes to be seen. Additionally they will not offer to reschedule you when you arrive or give you any update as you wait.

Dr. Dhafir has been in business for over 15 years. All of my family and friends visit him frequently. The staff is always pleasant and Dr. Dhafir explains your skin condition in great detail so you feel educated on the issue you came to see him for.

Doctor Dhafir found a mole that a previous Dermatologist said was fine. It turned out to be a bad mole and I am so thankful he found it. He takes the time to listen to all my concerns, answers all my questions and I would not go to any other dermatologist.

I went to Dr. Dhafir for what looked like hives on my legs. He did seem to get rid of a couple with his trusty CO2 canister. Unfortunately, he misdiagnosed one of the bumps, mistreated it and wound up scarring me. Now, I have an ugly dark blotch on the back of my left calf, about the size of a nickel. While it may not be horrible disfigurement, I'm certainly not happy about it, especially as summer is almost here. If I had the energy and money I'd sue, but what would be the point?
