This is a professionally run office, that delivers outstanding care with courtesy and respect. I have been a patient for more than 8 years, and find that the average wait time in the office is 10 minutes. Dr. Soni is extremely knowledgeable in the dermatology field, and presents his diagnosis and treatment skillfully and personably to each patient. I Highly recommend this doctor and his staff.

I went to Dr. Soni with a malignant melanoma diagnosis from another doctor who was on my insurance plan. I had Dr. Soni do my surgery and I paid out of pocket because I knew I could trust him. He is so thorough, knowledgeable, caring and he does an incredible job with a needle and stitches! I am so glad I went back to Dr. Soni.

I have not left a report for a Dr. before though felt that my experiences with Dr. Soni would be helpful to others. I have never before found a Dr. more committed to excellence in quality care. It is obvious that he truly loves his work and the ability to try to make a positive difference to each and every one of his patients. His expertise and genuine concern for each patient is far beyond any other Dr I have been to. You are NOT a "number" here. More like a cared for family member.

Expect at least 30 min wait...bring something to read or do. This doctor is worth the wait. It's the most thorough exam for skin cancer I've ever had. He also surgically removed a basal carcinoma on upper lip area and carefully placed incision to match normal lines. He spends a lot of time with all patients so he does often run late.

1:45 appt....Was brought to room.....Spent 35 minutes waiting for doctor while he was patient in next room. That wouldn't be so bad except they were having friendly conversation...For ex., about a nearby bldg being demolished. We could hear all because there is a gap in one wall. When I told office staff I needed to leave, one woman said OK. When my husband who was with me asked the assistant (who had brought us to the room) what happened, she just shrugged her shoulders. Never again.
