Dr. Asrani is extremely personable while also being very efficient. She explains herself and leaves room for questions, which I really appreciate. I did have to wait 30 minutes for my appointment but she explained that her surgery right beforeme unexpectedly went long, and I certainly wouldn't want her to rush that! I'm still happy to go back.

It was great. She saw me almost immediately, then when I told her my concerns she broke it down to bullet points and went through each one with me. Whether or not she could treat it she gave a detailed explanationas to what was going on. Very helpful. It was a short visit but I didn't feel rushed at all.

Dr. Asrani is amazing! My main concern was being rushed during my initial consultation as I have been with other dermatologist. Dr. Asrani took her time and made sure I also took my time in explaining everything that was going on.Incredibly warm and friendly! And efficient as well, I really feel as though she cares about what I'm going through.

Dr. Asrani was great! This was my first skin check and she made me feel welcomed and comfortable throughout the session. Very friendly and down to earth, while still remaining professional and explaining procedure and findings as she assessed.Only been a few hours since leaving the office and have already recommended her to two friends. Great experience, will definitely go back for future checks.

THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! The wait time was literally 5 minutes, I was called in by the nurse before I finished my paperwork (this maybe because I had a super early appointment). Dr. Asrani was the nicest, most compassionate and knowledgabledoctor ever. She listened to all my concerns very patiently. Then explained everything, why/how, etc. She made recommendations that made sense. All in all, a perfect 10.

Was the first appointment of the day and had to wait over an hour to be seen. This made me super late for work, and I almost left before being seen. The way she talked about my skin seemed almost judgmental,like how I have sooo many moles, etc. I went to have the health of my skin examined, not hear commentary on my appearance.

As always, Dr. Asrani was informative and attentive. She is the kind of doctor who wants to make sure you understand you condition thoroughly and not just dismissing your opinion with some prescriptions. I've been with several doctors in myfamily so I know she is an excellent doctor. Highly recommended.

I have had some bad experiences with dermatologists in the past. I found them to be uninterested in me and not very thorough. I didn't find that at all with Dr. Asrani! She was really wonderful. Took her time spoke withme and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend her highly!

The doctor was great and thorough but rushed because I was the first appointment of the day and I was brought in an hour late. Recommend getting an appointment later in the day so you don't have to worry about being late to work.
