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.
