Went to Dr. Zaks for Botox. Such a pleasant experience all around. Booked my appointment online in the middle of the night, the night before! Talk about convinient! Was about 10 minutes early tot he actual appointment.. Had already filled outall paperwork online (so easy!) Receptionist was great! Super friendly and helpful. Was seen immediately by Dr. Zaks. Not my first time getting Botox but he made sure to cover all the bases of information! Actually learned a few new things about the treatment I wasn’t aware of! He was super gently with the needles! No pain at all! Start to end was really a great experience (considering there were needles in my face involved, that’s saying a lot!) I will definitely be back, and I highly recommend!!

Dr. Zaks is one of my favorite doctors I've ever had. He's attentive, professional, and has an easy bedside manner. He gives you the time to discuss treatments and options and I always walk away happy. The office in general isresponsive and collaborative--- always a delight and always working on your behalf to get you in when needed-- even if it means a shorter lunch break for them. A+

Impecable! From tip to toe! I can't wait to go back to reap more benefits from his expertise, and to continue our engaging topics of conversation. I smiled "crazy big" (as he instructs when assessing your lived-in skin) through my entirevisit...even through the lidocaine injections. My take away was that Dr. Zaks has that rare dynamic of knowing how to strike all the important balances as a physician (aside from his equi-qualified command of both the medical and cosmetic natures of dermatology). He is the consummate professional without forgoing the 'personable'; conservative without forgoing the value in being thorough; highly versed in the medical research and current wave (trending and otherwise) of his field (the pluses and minuses) whilst remaining cognizant and considerate of the reality his patient is not a fellow colleague of his, rather, someone who will require enlightenment; knowledge being shared, and is deserving of such inclusiveness and a voice at the treatment/procedure table. You'll find no narcissism here. He is a doctor at the top of his game who hasn't lost connection with why he chose his profession. The man exudes integrity, and holds himself up to his high standards of the practice of dermatology. I instantly found it easy to be at ease when in the hands of this doctor, for his empathy and sincerity of care for my every moment is what pierced through my skin; not the numbing needles, themselves. Dr. Zaks proves there is still life amongst a dying breed.

I went in to see Dr. Zaks for a basic cancer screening, which I hadn't had in a long time. He was intelligent and nice. The weirdest part of the visit, and probably most uncomfortable, was that his assistant was dressedin tiny clubbin' clothes, and it's weird to be almost completely undressed with a man you never met and a woman who looks like she's out to party. I'm not conservative and professional women should dress however they want, but there's part of me who completely recoiled internally and I felt like I was in a horrible sitcom. No desire to go back. Also, parking is $6 for 15 minutes or something crazy, and they don't validate.

I called to check that my insurance was ok and they said it was and was covered. When I arrived and there was a large fee, the receptionist was extremely rude and suggested that I shouldn't go to a doctor inBeverly Hills if I didn't have the money to pay for it! The doctor was good and quick, but I would never go back.

I didn't feel like Dr. Zaks was in my best interest. He didn't see to want to look at the issues I was curious about. I have seen multiple dermatologists over the years but this was an odd experience for me.He didn't look at my skin where I was questioning and instead of asking more questions, he tried to put me on a steroid treatment. My total appointment only lasted about 15 minutes which was just strange to me.
