Would not have come in to have a biopsy done on a mole on my face. I’d been told by the doctor last year (when I saw him for a fraxel and he happened to notice what could’ve been signs of melanoma on a mole on my cheek) that the biopsy would be considered preventative and covered by insurance. With this knowledge, I had the biopsy done, only to receive a bill a few weeks later notifying me I now have to pay for the office visit and the biopsy, neither of which was considered preventative by my insurance. Definitely wouldn’t have had the procedure if I’d known the cost upfront.
Picasso with a scalpel. Wonderful surgeon and human being
Always great. First-rate physician
He was great. Very personable and explained everything well.
Dr. Khorasani is the best of the best! I couldn't be happier with my experience with him! I am young and discovered I had evolving melanoma and two precancerous spots, which can be a scary emotional experience but Dr. Khorasani was with me every step of the way! He explained everything I needed to know. I had full trust in him and am pleased with the results. I am moving from NY and if I have anything serious occur in the future I would make a trip for his care. I can't thank him enough, he's the best!
I saw this doctor at Schweiger Dermatology Group. Despite the fact that I had gone over my insurance information over the phone, sent all the referrals, they kept me waiting for over an hour before they would clear me to see the doctor. Very effective financial screening. When I was eventually seen by a medical person, I was asked 3 questions: You don't have any medical history like heart attack or diabetes, right? Do you have any history of skin cancer in your family? (When I said yes but was not sure of the type she said, it didn't matter.) and then as she was leaving said--oh yes, are you allergic to anything? The doctor came and did not ask me anything at all but gave me a lecture on MOHS surgery. I mean literally did not ask me one medical question about either my health or the specific condition. When I mentioned my dissatisfaction with the office he offered to see me in another clinical setting and said he did not have much control over things at this office. Left with no confidence in the office or the doctor. I'd steer clear of both if you are looking for skin cancer treatment.
Dr. Khorasani explained everything to me and was absolutely lovely. I knew I was in the right hands for my Mohs surgery and I feel confident about my results. Very pleased with my appointment today. I would highly recommend Dr. Khorasani! Everyone in the office was lovely.
Went in for a minor procedure for Mohs surgery and it took all day. He and staff are polite but I won't go back to him again since office must be totally disorganized for it to have taken all day
I liked the doctor very much. Am pleased with use of fillers.
