Dr. Payam Abrishami realizes the fundamental importance of integrating clinical and histological presentations of disease. Dermatopathology may be his passion, but he views himself as a clinician first. He always makes time to answer all questions, but it’s how he answers them that is most impressive.

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.
