Dr Saadat was confusing during the procedure. He told me I would have no pain. A week later I was swollen, couldn't walk and had a severe infection from the poor procedure or micro dermal piercing removal.

Rushed our visit, gave a diagnosis without hardly looking at my skin or asking me any questions. Prescribed an absurdly expensive pair of lotions that had absolutely no effect. Waste of time and money.

It was my first and last visit. Very rude and unprofessional. Worst doctor i have seen in my life. "Dr" Saadat didn't want to listen and acted like he was in rush. I think he hates his job. Anyways, I don't recommend this person to anyone. Found another dermatologist and I am so much happier.
