Verified Patient Reviews
Fantastic, thorough, not rushed and personable. Dr. Mehrabi made me feel at ease and listened to my concerns.
Amazing Docter, very professional. I highly recommend him to anyone, honestly the best Docter ever
LOVE DR. MEHRABI HIS THE BEST. I ALWAYS GO HOME HAPPY AFTER MY APPOINMENT BECAUSE I KNOW I HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
Really wonderful experience as a first time patient here!
Best Dermatologist. Very kind and gentle and you can tell he actually cares. Office is super clean and modern and the staff is incredibly professional. Thank you Dr. Mehrabi for all your help.
Dr. Mehrabi is by far my favorite doctor. Answers all my questions and genuinely cares. Skin cancer runs in my family and he really takes his time looking at every single mole to make sure they’re ok. He’s the first dermatologist to actually write notes on my skin, take pictures and save them for the next visit. He will even take the time to explain why some need to be monitored and why others are ok. He’s also helped with my acne and wrinkles! I’m only 28, but the little fine lines are coming in! Instead of pushing his products, which he does have if you want to buy, he recommended several more affordable options. I can’t say enough about how much I love this doctor!
Dr. Mehrabi is a fantastic doctor with a supportive and caring bedside manner. He's the best in LA!!!
Friendly staff and easy to communicate with!
I really liked my doctor and how she treated me. She listened to my concerns and addressed them all, explaining everything clearly to me. I would highly recommend my doctor and this office.
Outstanding. Personable and professional.
Very well oiled machine. Clean and eductaed.
Outstanding bedside manner. Doctor seemed to genuinely care and treat me with respect. So much so that I'm writing my first ZocDoc review after many years of using the service.
First meeting for consultation. Very personable and we were able to make a tentative plan of action for my case.
Very informative dermatologist gave amazing insight as to what was wrong. Would definitely recommend, can't wait for my follow up appointment with him, super friendly as well can't rave enough about him
It was helpful.
Very pleasant and easy to talk to. I didn't feel being rushed. Very nice doctor.
He and I are both waiting for insurance approval to get specimen of my skin problem before he can treat me.
Clearly professional and very good manners. Made me feel safe and calm during the surgery. Wasn't painful and everything very clean and quick.
Dr. Mehrabi is an outstanding doctor! I only wish EVERY doctor I have to see would be as wonderful as him. It's not fun getting biopsies and scraps, but Dr. Mehrabi makes the trip very pleasant! He has great bedside manners and is always concerned about your comfortability with a procedure. He also explains everything you need to know to make an educated decision. I can honestly say I feel very confident with his expertise!
Compared to another dermatologist I recently went to, he was far superior. He was extremely knowledgable, thorough and had a great bedside manor. I went for adult acne, mole check, and Botox. He gave me more treatment options, and was much more knowledgable than my prior dermatologist. The staff was very friendly and the office was modern.
Caring professional, extremely competent in area of expertise.
Doctor and assistant were good, fast but didn't get any time to go over or talk to doctor as he was busy and a had a full waiting room waiting to see him. Front office staff was less than desirable, not friendly and when you call in very rude and not efficient (Brittany)... Especially when people might not be well or concerned about results.
Cool and clean, serene waiting room. But, even though the Doc is a little gimpy in a "boot", you never wait long. Even though there was a discomfort zone with me, Dr. Mehrabi always takes the edges off. I listen intently as he explains what's goin" on, and what's next. Regardless of the prognosis, I always feel like I am in the right hands with Dr. Mehrabi and staff.
Definitely going back. Dr. Mehrabi was very informative and made me feel very comfortable.
My first visit and he was friendly....made you feel at ease....didn't rush you out just to see the next patient and took time to answer any concerns. Would recommend him.
He is humble about it all, but he is just so smart and focused on seeing you and what needs to be diagnosed and treated. He is very efficient and thorough. I tell my sister about him all of the time, how great he is. I'm older, and been to lots of good dermatologists who have treated me and saved my life by catching melanoma in situ, but I really think Dr. M. is excellently the most thorough and on top of the game.
It was better than I expected. I met with his PA first she was very through and pleasant. When Dr Mehrabi entered the room his face lit up as if we were old friends. He was very much into hearing my concerns as well as giving me solutions. He surprised me by actually knowing and being concerned about the medications he was prescribing and if they would be covered by my insurance. I would reccommend he to all my family and friends.
Great doctor! I got an appointment right away when my primary doctor was taking forever! My sister purchased a gift certificate for me and he was worth the hour drive. If I was still in California, I would continue to have him treat my dermatological problems.
Dr Mehrabi understood what my problem was and had a game plan immediately. When I got home of course I forgot what he had said, but I had received an email form his office regarding a website with my records. Everything we discussed was written down with instructions. I felt he was very through!
He was very nice and warm. My daughter came into his office for severe acne. He always had a smile in his face that made my 12 y/o child feel comfortable talking about her problems to him. He was very clear, informative and gave us a lot of options, suggestions and recommendations regarding my daughter's problem. I would definitely recommend him!
Dr. Mehrabi and his staff made my visit pleasant. They are all very professional and sweet.
A ok ! But did not check my legs ?
Always very satisfactory. He has personable and friendly assistants that make every visit a pleasurable one.
he is of the best Dr I have seen very honest educated nice and very friendly
Dr. Mehrabi is professional, courteous, very knowledgeable, and friendly. He is a great listener, a great communicator, and he is always very patient and attentive while I am in his office. What more can you ask for?
Takes time to listen and is very knowledgeable and compassionate.
I received great care!
Great Doctor. Friendly office.
Dr. Mehrabi has wonderful bedside manners. He's confident, kind and helped put me at ease as he was removing some moles for biopsy. Very professional! Really nice staff as well. Donna
Dr Mehrabi was great, he took care of my procedure quickly and very proffesionaly. I recommend him to all my friends. Thank You.
Total success. I went in for a small diagnosis, diagnosis was completed, and I am back at work.
Great! I would have liked to ask more questions. I'm looking forward for my follow up in three weeks. Very professional.
Highly professionl and caring Doctor.
I would like to address the last question first. Ususally Dr. Mehrabi is not running that late. Appt. are always between 10 and 15 minutes. As to this question, he is always with a smile and hand shake. Always the proper Dr. and knows his speciallity. My familly and I have seen him now for 6 years and am always pleased with the out come. Thank You Dr. Donny!
I am not impartial. Dr. Mehrabi insisted on a biopsy a few years back that was denied. He had it done regardless, found a malenoma (which was taken care of) and now checks on me every 6 months THOROUGHLY...I hold him in very high regard. He is a consummate professional, as is EVERY member of his staff...They are very good with insurance companies, whom I expect respect the offices of Dr. Donny Mehrabi.
Great doctor and staff
He is a very good doctor and explains everything thoroughly. He is the first doctor to correctly diagnose a problem I have had for over 2 years. I had seen numerous doctors with different specialties and Dr. Mehrabi was the first to accurately diagnose me and has me on what seems to be the correct form of treatment as my symptoms have diminished dramatically.
Absolutely personable and professional. Will recommend.
Dr. Mehrabi is wonderful. He really listens to your concerns, and is very kind. Someone dealing with a skin issue such as acne can feel very insecure, but Dr. Mehrabi puts you at ease.
Great Doctor!! Explained everything thoroughly and was willing to answer all my questions. Since I was a cash patient he offered me a prescription that was very affordable. I walked out of the office with relief and excitement.
I've been a patient of Dr. Mehrabi for years. He's very nice and knowledgeable. He has a good bedside manner and can make you feel comfortable during an appointment that could otherwise be pretty unpleasant. I would (and have) highly recommended his services.
Wonderful Doctor and staff!
Dr. Mehrabi and his staff were very nice. Dr. Mehrabi answered all of my questions and was very helpful. I would definitely go to him again if I need a dermatologist.
I was very satisfied with Dr M and his staff.They are all very professional and pleasant.
I think the entire team was lovely!!! Ill keep you posted on the vanity thing! Haha
Very good, It was a good informative and relaxed visit. We need more like him.
He was professional, asked questions, and gave different options. He was forthright with the success rate of treatments and respectful with my choice. Most notably, he didn't run into the office and hand a prescription. He was generous with his time and listened.
Very knowledgeable, straight-forward, and also genuinely caring about good health. I have had more than 12 dermatologists, from SF, through SB, BH, and the OC -- he is the best by far.
Very personable and nice doctor. Presented all my treatment options clearly, and did not feel like he rushed my visit at all. Would highly recommend!
Great doctor. Care about the patient. Very patient. The no. 1 among the four dermotoligist doctors I have seen so far. Strongly recommend.
He was very professional
Dr. Mehrabi was extremely professional, attentive and friendly. He really took the time to address my acne concerns, and treated my problem area. You just know he cares. Amazing Doctor!
Dr Mehrabi and entire staff were awesome! Front office were super friendly. Physician's Assistant was great - came in right away so that I didn't have to wait while Dr was with another patient. She took the time to hear me out, and then explain diagnosis and treatment. Then met with Doctor as well, he's so friendly and "real" - most doctors are sort of in a daze and just go from patient to patient giving the bare minimum. The proactively offered to assess or treat other areas other than what I came in for (which is un-heard of with other doctors). Really, really, great. Cant recommend them enough. Wish more doctors were like them in terms of technology and bedside manner.
You can tell that Dr. Mehrabi genuinely cares about his clients and he took the time to address every question / need that I had. I'm looking forward to trying the recommendations he gave me for my eczema and I am actually looking forward to my follow-up visit.
Dr. Mehrabi and his staff are very professional and attentive to the patient. He and his staff explained everything they were doing, and also the diagnosis after the exam. I would highly recommend them all for anyone seeking professional exams or procedures involving dermatology.
I would highly recommend Dr. Mehrabi.
Except the waiting time which I didn't mind at all the entire experience was great! Dr. Mehrabi was professional and seems to be caring!
Dr. Mehrabi is so professional and kind. It is obvious he cares about the needs his patients.
Glad I listened to all the great reviews Dr. Mehrabi has online - they were right on. Couldn't have asked for a better dermatologist! The only bad thing I have to say about the whole experience is that the parking fees at his building are ridiculous and the dr. does not validate. Do yourself a favor - park 2 blocks east in public parking (first 2 hours free!). I definitely found my new dermatologist!
There's an assistant doctor came to see me first before Dr Don Mehrabi. She didn't even exam my skin, didn't ask me much question for diagnostic. She talks in general for acne treatment that anyone can search that online. Dr. Don Merabi did come to see me after 10 minutes after. He provided some suggestions. But obviously he's trying to train assistant doctor. It is not what I'm expected for Dr Don Merabi's expertise.
Love this doctor! So personable and friendly, and knows his stuff!
Great visit - Dr. Mehrabi is the best!
I was very happy with my visit. He is the 1st doctor who really helped me with my problems. I highly recommend him to anybody!!!!
Very nice experience!!!
He answered all questions in a very friendly manner without leaving me hanging and wanting better answers. He was excellent
Wonderful, comfortable atmosphere! Thanks to everyone in the office! Worth the wait!
The visit was for my son. It was very pleasant and my son felt very comfortable interacting with Doctor Mehrabi.
The visit was great. He listened, offered a solution, and went right to work on solving my skin issues.
Awesome! Super clean and nice office, amazing stuff and the doctor is great!
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Mehrabi. He was caring and took the time to explain everything to me.
Terrific, staff was attentive, dr was present and very through and thoughtful. Treatment was painless, almost, but his assistant was gentle and pretty. I'd definatly recommend him.
Fine! Efficient! I would have liked to be told more about the steps taken, and the progress, during the procedure. I like my personal space when talking. He answered questions and when asked he gave me his opinion and recommendation. Could be more specific. Friendly. I missed handouts about my problems in general. I like to have things written down so I can get familiar with the "technical" terms.
Very impressed. He's going to be my new Dermatologist.
The doctor and his staff were are awesome! They talked TO you, not AT you. Very personable and nice. Answered any and all questions I had. Doctors are usually cold and he was incredibly warm and nice. I'm so glad I found him!
Dr Mehrabi is fantastic. He's professional, excellent at his work, and has a genuinely caring demeanor that's refreshing for doctors these days. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a top notch dermatologist.
He is very good and always cheerful. He has nice assistance as well.
He was absolutely fantastic!!
Loved him! Would totally recommend him...
great was seen right away. explained everything before doing it feel very comfortable with Dr. Mehrabi
I felt very happy to see the doctor on Saturday for a non emergency case and treatment is very good.
Dr. Mehrabi was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. He was so helpful! I would recommend him to anyone!
Awesome Doctor! Informative, kind, and very friendly!
Very professional, helpful and informative.
Dr Mehrabi was very professional, attentive and took his time to evaluate my skin. will definitely be returning to him and recommending him as well.
Dr. Mehrabi is wonderful--very warm and caring. I will recommend him to my family and friends.
I believe I have finally found the Dr. who listens to my fears and puts my mind to rest that he will do everything he can to help me. :) Thank you Dr. Don Mehrabi!!! BTW, it doesn't hurt that Dr Mehrabi is a "little cutie"
Our past visits have been very helpful. This visit didn't happen because of ZocDoc (see below)
A bit expensive but a good professional. I came for refill treatment and he did a nice job.
Saw Dr. Mehrabi for removal of a small skin cancer; he answered all of my questions, made quick work of the removal, and I think he was more concerned about a possible scar than I was. :)
So much was physically going on with the biopsy and I didn't hear what I am supposed to do with the Vanos Trial Coupon the nurse handed me. Is it a cream and how and when and how much do I apply and where, etc., etc.?
He is very good at what he does and very friendly.
Dr. Mehrabi was friendly and informative.
Such a great experience. The staff was amazing and Dr. Mehrabi is so knowledgeable and pleasant. He was able to immediately diagnose what the rash was that I had previously had misdiagnosed as ringworm from another physician. I am so happy to finally have found a great dermatologist close to home :). Would recommend him to anyone.
Staff seemed disorganized
I felt the doctor and staff were very pleasant. Dr Mehrabi has an excellent bedside manner and takes his time during his evaluation. I would highly recommend this physician.
nie positive person
Nice Guy! Great experience!
Both the PA I saw and the doctor I briefly met were genuinely friendly and extremely professional. I was very impressed- those are traits you wish every medical specialist possessed, but it's just not the case. I consider the entire staff at this office (including the receptionist and aide!) a rare find, and will definitely be back. However, you may want to call directly to schedule because they are busy and this site doesn't always forward them your appt info. Also, hospital parking is a 6$ daily maximum, which is ridiculously cheap for the LA area. Awesome all around.
Good looking, young professional. Made me feel very comfortable, confident and content with his diagnosis and suggested treatment.
Dr. Mehrabi was exceedingly professional in every way. He put me at ease immediately.
Professional. Friendly. Informative.
Great Dr. Straight talk, fully informed, cares about his patient.
Dr. Mehrabi has been easy to schedule an appointment with. His staff are all friendly and helpul. He has been especially helpful and informative regarding my concerns. I appreciate his ability to connect right away with me as a patient and help me feel comfortable while addressing various issues.
I am very much pleased with my visit. I have this skin problem bothering me for 10 years or more, been seeing other doctors but none understands it the way Dr. Mehrabi does. Most look at me and say, "Hey, you are fine" even though I tell them I need makeup to cover all the issues. Dr. Mehrabi's assistant was the one asking me to remove my makeup. When he saw me himself, he knew my concerns right away. I'm ready to go with his treatment!
Dr. Mehbrabi is definitely as awesome as these other reviewers have stated! I am a new patient. I went to two other dermatology offices prior to seeing him for assessment and treatment options for my condition. I am not a difficult patient by any means, but the prior two consultations had much to be desired--they didn't address all of my concerns and thusly did not instill confidence in me with regards to their treatment plan. Dr. Mehrabi took the time to listen to ALL of my concerns and addressed them individually with great patience and respect--which I totally appreciated (P.S. I am a medical student. I mention that only to give you context with regards to the questions that I asked). I did not feel rushed and I felt comfortable entrusting my care to him and his judgment. The treatment itself was done very professionally and painlessly--I was shocked because I expected much worse! Would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a very knowledgeable, respectful, and professional dermatologist. I also have to comment on the professionalism of his office staff. They were very efficient, kind, and cheerful during my visit. His office was also very clean and orderly. You can tell a lot about the physician and his practice by the condition of his/her office and the professionalism/culture of his staff. High marks all around!
Excellent bedside manner; explained things clearly, listened well, and I barely felt the local anesthetic injection.
I was very tense while waiting in the office, but once Dr. Mehrabi started talking to me, asking questions and addressing my concerns, I felt confident in the care he was providing and calm. It helped that he gave a gentle, caring touch to my arm every once in a while and explained things thoroughly and repeatedly. Go see him!
Everything was great service very good! no waiting,I would definetly recommend them!
Was very happy with his services and a very nice doctor. Thank You!
He knew what he was doing. he spent a lot of time with me.
He was excellent! Very kind and professional!
