I researched Doctors for close to 3 years before a friend recommended Dr. Akhavan - that was 2 years ago. Since then, I've recommended at least 5 -- and we all feel the same. He is simply wonderful and whatever he does, he does it perfect! Highly recommend.

Great experience. Went in for a routine skin check and was in and out in less than 30 minutes, thankfully did not feel awkward whatsoever. No pressure to have any procedures or do anything differently. I really appreciated that he looked at two moles that were previously removed and asked why the doctor had done that, rather than take a small biopsy and assess. Exactly what I was looking for.

He was very rushed, didn't build rapport with me as the patient, saw me for about 5 minutes flat and when I asked for a prescription for something he wouldn't give it. He didn't ask about my background or history and barely spent a second inspecting the area that I told him I was having problems with. He asked me to book a follow up which I am not going to do. I hope the co pay isn't a lot because I don't want to spend a cent after that horrible experience.

I had a really good experience with the doctor as well as the rest of the office staff. They were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The doctor did a thorough exam of my dermatology issue and recommended the simplest/least invasive solution first. He also gave me some practical suggestions to help manage my skin. He let me know to come back in if it I needed more treatment. I felt really comfortable and like I got the best treatment possible. I also had a few questions regarding cosmetic procedures that were not related to my appointment and he was really great about giving me information and resources to check out. The office is very easy to get to via train. (yay!) I was able to fill out all of my medical history and insurance information online before the appointment, which I find very convenient. Overall had a great experience and would recommend Dr. Akhavan.
