it was a waste of my time to drive to him. i have minor bumps on myface and he said he will give me injection to fix that over night. DOES NOT MAKE SENSE. then he was pushing his laser nonsenseon me. totally didnt touch my face to see the issue and just blew his own horn the entire time. i wen to him because i had a sudden rash on around my eyes and he just blew me off regarding my issue and talked about other stuff he does. WILL NOT GO BACK. his thick accent doesnt help at all.

The office staff was very friendly. Came in as a new patient. I finished my brief paper work and was taken in within minutes. The doctor was in the room before I knew it. He addressed my concerns, was very personablebut professional and had me done and out very quickly. I was extremely pleased.

He is the first dermatologist to get rid of my acne. I have seen countless dermatologists, tried dozen of treatments and spent thousands of dollars until I went to see him. I have been acne free for months now.

I felt veyr rushed, and as if my issues were not taken seriously because I wasn't in the middle of a serious flare up. Waited 20 minutes to see the doctor and was in the office for less than 2, hejust sent a prescription in that I probably won't be able to use due to allergies and sensitive skin and the "full body skin check" was about 15 seconds long. Will be going back to my old dermatologist regardless of the distance.

I think his medical suggestions of keeping completely out of the sun, was not realistic for my active 17 year old daughter. Hopefully he proves me wrong with subsequent visits, on how he will further treat her skin condition. Not too open for discussion and concerns.

I've been to quite a few dermatologists and so far dr Setarek-Shenas has been definitely on the better side of them. He's a really nice Doctor. Really great besides manner and has a sense of humor. Made me feel really comfortable.Friendly staff up front as well. I would recommend him.

He was very short and direct. I thought I would get a full and more in depth analysis, but I did not. I felt that he tried to help, but I had an evening appointment, and it seemed like it wasthe end of the day for him and everyone else in there, and they just wanted to go home. My needs didn't feel like a priority.

Dr. Shenas is a caring and knowledgable professional. His examination was thorough; comments were reassuring. A follow up visit is planned. Further, I cannot help but notice how the personality of a doctor tends to influence his or her staff.To that, I found Dr. Shenas' staff to be cordial, professional and involved; outstanding individual traits and a wonderful reflection on the doctor.

The visit was for my 4 year old son. He had some sort of rash on his arms and back. I would have liked a more thorough skin test since this was his first visit, more than just to check theactual concern area. Besides that, the cream he's using seems to be working.

Staff was absolutely horrible. No greeting at all no directions given as a new patient. Was too busy talking to each other or giving me blank stares. The woman in the front desk when explaining what I was given as areferral gave me nasty faces wasn't sure if she was experiencing a seizure or was just naturally that unappealing. These are the things that make new patients go to other doctors instead. Will not be going back

The wait time was hard with two small children.. it was about 45 minutes and the front desk seemed off putting, but they could have just been distracted with work. However the Doctor was very helpful.

Doctor was very courteous and nice.He gave ample time to my daughter and was very professional while diagnosing ,explaining the treatment and precautions for her condition. He did necessary procedure to confirm the diagnosis.He seemed genuinelyconcerned for her and tried to do his best to alleviate her anguish. The front desk staff was also very co-operative as I changed my purse before coming here and left her insurance card at home but she was very kind to wait for me to get her ID number over the phone from my home.The doctor is little far from my home but the good experience will definitely make me stick to this doctor.

As a first time patient picking a random Doctor from Zoc doc ...I went there not expecting a pleasant...but from the time I was greeted by Dr.Bijan assistant I knew I was in for a great experience .. Dr. Came in,introduced himself and all his attention was focused on my concern ...Love his professionalism and personality. He took his time and explain his treatment plans, didn't just give me a script and end ,every thing was clearly explain right through to my next visit..left with knowledge of my complaint ..he said I will fell better as I start my treatment ....and boy he was right.. Keep up the good work Doc .
