Dr. Assaf is awesome! Had an urgent issue and was able to get right in. He is professional, friendly, honest and immediately makes you feel at ease. It is clear he genuinely cares for each patient and does not rush you out the door. His follow up was excellent and thanks to him I was quickly on the road to recovery. Additionally, his office staff is wonderful. My husband and children also are patients and his service is always consistent and of the highest quality.

I HIGHLY advise you not to use RAD Dermatology. Although the dr. is great, his staff and administration is not. I was given an appointment with a card telling me when it was but then the day before they called me telling me I was late to an appointment and would incur a $50 fee. I no longer had the card because I had written the information down and put it in my phone as well so there was no way to prove to them that they had given me the wrong date. Because of their scam I owe them $50.

I really enjoyed my whole experience today. Doc was so personable, and answered all my concerns, with care and a great sense of humor, not just with me, but also Tina. From reception, to sara and Jenn and Ashley, was, well simply put, JUST NICE. I have never experienced a staff so friendly, knowledgable, and caring. SERIOUSLY. Nobody, is paying me to say this. ( well a free pen made it easier to say all these things-LOL) Now lets hope the treatments work. Congrats Doc and staff.

Dr. Assaf has treated me for skin conditions ranging from basic dermatitis and keratoses, to basal and squamous-cell cancer. He is unfailingly courteous, compassionate and knowledgeable. His staff is friendly, courteous and helpful, and his offices and treatment rooms are spotless and well-appointed. Unlike large healthcare facilities, Dr. Assaf DOES NOT charge a facilities fee! I would recommend Dr. Assaf to anyone seeking the best dermatological treatment available.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
