I felt Dr. Dhafir was very thorough with my skin exam. He addressed all my concerns and took the time to explain my skin condition in terms I was able to understand. Extremely satisfied!

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...more

We are so sorry about the wait you experienced on your last visit. Please understand that we realize the scheduling has not always been the best and that we are working to fix it. As of today, we implemented a new policy that if you have a bad rash or complicated skin condition when you were originally scheduled for a Skin Cancer Checkup, we will treat your urgent condition and then reschedule you on another day for your Skin Cancer Checkup. That way we can make sure we keep on schedule!

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.
