Dr. Sunny Walia is a EXCELLENT doctor. I go to Dr. Walia every six months for a cancer screening/check. During each visit, Dr. Walia is completely professional, thorough, and correct with her recommended treatments. She has saved my life due to her due diligence and thorough examinations. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Walia to all patients in need of skin treatments. Dr. Walia is the best and I totally trust her judgement and recommendations for treatment.

About 10 years ago my primary care physician recommended I see a dermatologist on a regular basis as I had significant sun exposure over the years; particular during childhood. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Walia, who I have been seeing on a regular basis since then. She conducts a full body exam twice a year and has identified one skin cancer and several pre-cancers. She is very professional, thorough and caring and she patiently listens to my concerns. I have confidence that Dr. Walia will keep my skin in good health for years to come.
