I came in for moderate inflammatory acne and severely plugged skin. Dr. Railan looked at my skin type seriously before prescribing any medicines. She noticed I had darker dry skin that becomes oily under poor treatment. Thus, she started me off with a gentle topical antibiotic for my face and a low strenth tazorac for my back. After a month, she increased the strength of the tazorac and gave me atralin for my face to take with thr topical antibiotics. After three months, most of thr inflammatory acne has subsided, and much of the plugs on my face have cleared as well. I'm extremely pleased.

I have been seeing Dr. Divya Railan for over a year. I cannot thank her enough for addressing my skin concerns. She treated my skin with just medicines and no external procedures, which I absolutely loved. Amazing results in just a year! I highly recommend Dr. Divya! She is very friendly and listens to you patiently.

She is a good doctor and very nice.But I felt she was in a hurry.If she is a skin specialist, she could have looked at my big toe hard skin too.Not sure why she recommended to a podiatrist. Also I had mentioned hair loss as my concern.She did not address that.

Dr. Railan was a professional. She took the time to understand my concerns, offered treatment options that met my needs, made time to treat me in the same appointment even though I had only booked a consultation, and had a very courteous bedside manner (with similarly kind staff). Highly recommended.

I believe Dr Railan opts to hit the problem with largest caliber available. Often ending up with total overkill. On a good side getting urgent early morning appointment is the luxury only she seem to offer in the area.

Dr. Railan is awesome. I moved from SF to Palo Alto and needed someone local. She took over the reins seamlessly and gave me the needed medication. She was also very nice to me about the fact that since I am leaving my day job for a startup soon, my insurance situation was going to change accordingly. I felt at ease and taken care of. Absolutely recommend her.

The BEST dermatologist I've ever seen. She's extremely thorough, and seems to really take her time with each patient. She also understands how to help educate and inform patients about risks, treatments etc. in a friendly yet effective way. Overally, Dr. Railan and her staff are the archetype for what patient care should look like everywhere: efficient + accessible.

Dr. Railan was great! She was very patient, informative, and attentive. I'm pretty sure my issues were routine in comparison to much of her practice, but nonetheless, Dr. Railan treated me comprehensively, seriously, and took plenty of time to walk me through the treatment options and best practices. The appointment was on time and her office staff was great! I highly recommend her!

This is easily the most thorough dermatologist I have ever visted, and I've been to many in many different locations due to recurring acne and uber sensitive/ reactive skin.

Dr Railen seems to be patient focused, in that she wants to know my specific concerns and address them in a way that suits me. Further, after listening to my concerns, she is not afraid to advise me w/ her own honest assessment, even if it's different from my thinking.

I have been to four different dermatologists in my life. Dr. Railan is the most competent. I went to her because other dermatologists were missing basel cells. I had too much sun in my youth, so a thorough examination is important.
