Dr. Zelaya was amazing and easy to talk to. He was able to diagnose me really quick and tell me what was happening to me. He and his assistant were quick and answered all my questions. The staffs were friendly.

Dr Zelaya didn’t seem competent and seems to be a poor listener. I mentioned to him that a specific medication wasn't working for me but he still prescribed the same medication. Would not recommend.

Everything went super smoothly as always. Only thing to note was I booked a cyst removal via ZocDoc and it didn't come up in his system correctly, so if you need to book anything other than a general consultation you may want to shoot a note to the office to double check that it is correct.

This is not the place to go if you have an actual dermatological issue. It is obvious from the office, waiting area, and treatment rooms his bread and butter is Botox and women really want clear skin. He seemed uninterested in treating a skin condition. He spent less than 2 minutes gave, in his words, "an educated guess" and was out the door. He forgot twice to send the prescription to the pharmacy. Would not recommend unless seeking cosmetic services only.

Very friendly office staff and Dr. Zelaya is very professional and caring. He's thorough albeit a little scattered (rushing to see many other patients). I appreciated that he gave me a follow-up call to discuss my lab results.

Doctor Zelaya was very helpful and matter of fact. No frill approach which didn't really match up with the fact that I was in his waiting room for an entire hour before getting called in. Time management is not his forte

Loved my visit with Dr Zelaya, he listened and addressed all my questions and concerns. He's so nice and welcoming, I felt very comfortable and the office is nice and comfortable. He gave me options for little to no cost rx medications to treat my skin issues since my insurance has a nigh rx deductible. I high recommend if you need a new dermatologist.

Dr Zelaya is one of those docs I wish I could have for everything. He's patient, kind, looks you in the eye (sadly that seems to be rare in healthcare!) and doesn't rush you. It's always a pleasure seeing him. Highly recommended.
