I was referred to Dr. Ezra by a good friend of mine who had botox and fillers done by him. At my first visit with Dr. Ezra, he took the time to do a full assessment on my facial structure and explained the different options for correcting them. I was nervous about looking fake and "done up", but Dr. Ezra reassured me that I would look like a better version of myself. During the injections, I barely felt a thing! He was so gentle and talked me through each step. I had no bruising and I love it!!!

There is no other doctor comparable to Dr. Ezra. He makes you feel comfortable and confident the minute he walks into the room. I've had acne problems for several years and other doctors kept giving me creams that didn't work. I even traveled to Beverly Hills for cosmetic treatments that cost thousands of dollars. I decided to give Dr. Ezra a try and I'm so happy I did! He has a gentle demeanor and thoroughly listened to me and not only did he treat my acne but he cured it. Best thing was every

I've had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Ezra since I was referred to him several weeks ago. When I first went to his office, I was amazed at what a beautiful office he had. It's a newly constructed building right off the freeway. I thought he might want to sell me on cosmetics like botox and filler, but instead he asked about my skin issues and really took the time to hear what I had to say. He started me on a regimen and after just a couple weeks I got clear skin! I definitely refer him to others!

I have suffered from a severe psoriasis for almost thirty years now. Have tried everything there is only to find a temporary relief. Kaiser Permanente Dermatolgy Department was not able to help much either until I met Dr. Ezra. He was very professional, honest and prescribed the best treatment for my condition. Now, only a month later, my skin is almost completely clear. I believe Dr. Ezra had my best interest in mind, as any true and honest doctor should. I will gladly recommend him to anyone
He is reluctant to examine any condition closely, and jumps to conclusions (which have often proved unfounded) too quickly. Has a supercilious and arrogant air, and talks down to you. Never again!

I have been going to Dr. Ezra for almost 2 years now and would not change to any other dermatologist. He is the smartest physician I have encountered and explains things in a way I can understand. I'm looking forward to sharing my great experience with all my friends and family.

I recommend Dr. Ezra to all patients who have Kaiser Insurance. He is professional, caring, takes patient's needs and requests into consideration when determining treatment options for his patients. He's thorough as well. I came to him with a rare condition and was able to give me a diagnosis. Next, we will begin treatment. :-)
