I booked an early morning appointment hoping to avoid having a long wait time and arrived early to complete my paperwork. However, I was seen 30 minutes after my initial appointment time and neither Dr. Riyaz or his assistant apologized forthe wait. Very disappointed and will not be back.

Dr. Riyaz is excellent. I’ve never had a physician spend so much time with me before. He explained every possible course of treatment, drew diagrams and made sure to answer every last question I had. I didn’t feel rushed at all,and it seems like he genuinely cares about his patients. I’ll definitely be a long term patient of his and highly recommend him.

The doctor was really nice and the NP who saw me at the very beginning was also very nice. He has really great bedside manner and really listened. He also gave me good options but told me what he thought wasnecessary, but gave me the option to choose. I would definitely recommend Dr Riyaz

Dr. Riyaz was super efficient, but not rushed. Friendly and thorough in his explanation of procedures and things going on with my skin. He even took the time to draw things out clearly on the whiteboard. It was my first timeto the derm and I felt completely comfortable with hi and his staff.

As a new patient coming for a standard annual check-in, the visit was trouble free. Intake process was quick & painless. Appointment started right on time, but I came 15 minutes early to make sure I dealt with intake before mystated appointment. Doc and assistant were both friendly and thorough.

am thrilled that Zocdoc brought me to Dr. Rayaz and plan to be a patient for the long haul. The entire team made the experience easy (and I love that they open the office early for those that work!). Hewas understanding of my concerns and my multiple questions. I cam in for multiple concerns and he nicely let me explain my concerns and made me feel confident that our plan would solve my skincare issues. I look forward to my next visit.

I saw Victoria Bennis and she was wonderful. Thorough, listened to me, explained everything and didn’t brush off any of my concerns. Will make her my official dermatologist! And recommend to anyone needing a new derm.

Tried to prescribe me heart meds for acne....then told me there was no correlation between diet and acne (probably because he was trying to prescribe me meds). THEN I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics he prescribed, called the officeevery day for a week following to ask about the reaction and try to receive something else. No answer. If you want a quick fix, or a quick med prescription he's fine, but don't expect amazing care. Will not be returning.

Dr. Farhaad was pleasnset, I’m assuming the office was super just today because I waited 30mins to be seen and as soon as he walked in to see me, his cell phone started ringing and he steeped back out for anadditional 10 minutes to take the call. Overall, the visit went fairly ok.

The appointment itself is fine, but he prescribed two tubes of cream. First, those two tubes of cream were very experience. I won’t even finish one of them. Why prescribe two tubes at once? Secondly, there’s generic versions cost about 1/6of the price. Why do you have to let me spend 6x as much for the brand you prescribed?

I was very pleased with my visit. The front desk staff was very polite and informative, and the assistant who took me back for my appt was very professional. I was seen by Dr. Gellen who I highly recommend. She dida thorough skin screening and did not make me feel uncomfortable or that my concerns were silly. I'm glad to have found this dermatology office.
