If you want someone that doesn't care, and has rude staff, then this is not the place for you! This was my first time having Dr Abrishami see me as a new patient. What a gentle doctor and person. His staff makes you feel calm and at home. They explain everything to you, they don't rush you in and out. The care was ten star. I highly recommend this doctor and staff. They save lives!

DO NOT TRUST
This place has hands down the most ignorant, unprofessional, disrespectful employees I have ever experienced! The only thing they're good at is taking your money! Just filling my first prescription was a nightmare because they were supposed to give me some sort of "trust id" paperwork and never did. At that same visit the ignorant "chu" told me she would send the lab two requests so that I can just walk in a few days before my next appt and that she'd have my lab work available at my next visit. Well they called me a few days before my appointment and asked if they can reschedule me for another week out and I said okay. Then I went to quest and after waiting almost 2 hours they told me they don't have an order for lab work for me. When I call the office and ask to speak with the office manager, they said she's out for the week, and when I ask to speak to whoever is in charge in the meantime she simply hung up on me, and now they won't take my calls when I'm calling back. On top of that

Doctor Abrishami saved my son from warts on his hands, which we have been fighting for over two years! We have been to three different dermatologists who tried a number of various treatments. We even went the non-traditional route and went to see a "healer" who tried yet another approach, but nothing worked. Finally we've been blessed to find Dr. Abrishami who did good old cryogenic treatment, but did it THE CORRECT WAY. I am happy to see my son's hands finally clear of warts. He still has some scars from the two years of failed treatments, but this a different story. Thank you Doctor Abrishami!

I've had facial filler for most of my life (modeling, acting) and it has NEVER been this painful. My face still hurt more than TWO weeks AFTER the procedure. This guy was inept as to how to inject a filler called Devine . This filler did NOTHING; it didn't fill out the nasal labial folds at all and the lines between my eyes look the same as they did when I walked into his office. I actually left his office looking worse. I've nothing good to say about this doctor. DON'T waste your time. RUN away from him as quickly as possible!!

Dr Abrishami treated me for basil cell carcinoma on a couple areas of my face. Having recently undergone throat surgery to remove cancerous tissue, I was incredibly apprehensive and depleted of energy. I truly thank God for Dr Abrishami. He calmed my anxieties and assured me of his expertise in a soothing, friendly environment. He genuinely cared for me like a valued friend and brought our family through to the other side. We are all immeasurably grateful to have had his patience, knowledge, kin

Wonderful, knowledgeable, thoughtful Doctor. Best Cosmetic Dermatologist around! I would recommend him for any kind of skin surgery, cosmetic injections, skin care, etc. His scars are minimal and he has excellent follow up. I have had elective injections with Dr.A and couldn't be happier!!! I cannot be more thrilled with my results.
