Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Kia is always so friendly, which is important when you’re coming to him embarrassed about your skin imperfections. He’s quick but at the same time, I don’t feel rushed. He respects your time and answers all your questions but will not hold you for longer than necessary. He takes your financial status into consideration and isn’t judgemental. Love that he’s not a salesman for skincare products (which, a lot of my previous dermatologists seemingly were) and actually wants to help address your concerns. Moved to Fort Worth but definitely don’t mind driving so far to go see him! 10/10 would recommend ????
Very educational and informative.
Excellent experience! Dr. is straightforward, caring and very patient. The staff in general is very nice.
It was fantastic what I was more please with was that he was very knowledgeable about my condition. Thanks so much Dr.Kevin Kia
Doctor is nice but unfortunately prescription i had doesnt work for me i got numbness and serious headache and nauseous , so i have to stop and called office and the front desk Samantha she is rude !!! Cos of her i cant talk to the doctor at the first place so i have to go to other dermatologist ..at least as a patient when face to this kinda problem we need doctor at the first place !!!
They don't waste anytime seeing you when your appointment is scheduled which was great. The doctor is very friendly and knowledgeable. He explained everything to me that was needed in full detail. He is a little rushed but I looked past that cause in our short visit he gave me a lot of good information about my skin condition. I definitely would recommend Dr Kia.
Handsome, efficient, extremely knowledgeable, and courteous.
He and his team are awesome!!! It was my best experience with a doctor here in USA. Very very professional ! We need more doctors like him!!!

They saw me so quickly after I got there and took care of everything quickly while I was there. He was very well mannered and very professional.
Quick and easy
Dr. Kia specified what the new prescriptions would do for me completely and thoroughly, even taking the time to specify how I should use it and possible side effects. Definitely a breath of fresh air compared to other dermatologists who rush to get you out the door - amazing doctor!
Good dermatologist. It felt a little rushed, but overall it was efficient.
He was very knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner. I was pleasantly surprised and certainly appreciative of his quick diagnosis and ability to try to help me with my situation. Very glad that I went to see the doctor.
Doctor should spend a little longer than a couple of minutes with the patient giving them time to think of any questions they might have instead of rushing them
Dr. Kevin Kia is very professional and quick.
This was my first visit. Staff were very professional. My wait time was less than 5 minutes. Dr. Kia came in promptly, listened to my concerns, and checked me over. He then took the time to explain what he found plus answering my questions fully. I highly recommend him and his office.
I absolutely adore Dr. Kia. He is very smart and knowledgeable about my condition. He knew the exact problem by merely looking at my skin. I would recommend him to the world if I could.
He was appropriately friendly and professional.
Doctor had lot of patience , he explained me very well about the concern I had , I feel relaxed after taking to him .
The doctor was very knowledgeable and courteous. He understood the issue right away and assured us regarding treatment. the staff was also very helpful.
When I arrived, they had my daughter on the schedule for the next day (ZocDoc showed the day I arrived and even texted me). That was my only complaint and that's on zocdoc not them as far as I'm aware. They got me in less than 30 minutes later even though I wasn't on their schedule. Dr. Kia was incredibly nice too. He sat down and talked to me, with no rush, and made sure I was comfortable with his treatment for my daughter and her eczema issues. He was very helpful.
I was looking for a dermatologist under my Healthcare provider and I found many, but Dr. Kia had the best reviews and so I decided to choose him. I arrived at the appointment and he came in right away and addressed the problem I had and gave me such a relief, and also gave my some creams to put on my face. One of the best doctors I've seen regardless of specialty and I would recommend this doctor any day.
He is cooperative and understanding doctor.
Would definitely recommend Dr. Kia to any and everyone. Great bedside manner, thorough, great listener, and intelligently frank. Best dermatologist I've ever visited by far.
Dr. Kia and staff were professional, friendly, and efficient. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Phenomenal, smart, caring, and personable. While I haven't received a diagnosis yet, as we are waiting on the biopsy results, I would highly recommend Dr. Kia for anyone seeking a great dermatologist.
Dr. Kevin Kia is a very compassionate man. He listens very well and truly has a passion for his job and the well being of his patients. Highly recommend him.
He was real thorough and took his time to explained everything to me and answered all my questions. He did not rush through it. Staff and Dr. were all very professional. A+!!
He was fabulous!
Dr. Kia is WONDERFUL! He will forever be my dermatologist now.. I was never one to have regular skin checks and went in with what had me very worried. .. Dr Kia picked up on this right away and called me personally the next evening with my results. He has a wonderful bed side manner and is incredibly good at what he does. ..his staff was remarkable as well...my follow up is already scheduled. ..
Amazing medical staff and physician. He has an amazing bed side manner.
Dr. kia is always good with our nursing home residents!
Dr. Kia was very thorough as he was observant of overall skin condition from head to toe. He assessed the level of concern for the areas he noticed as to whether I desired treatment for items he had noted or not, there was no pressure for unwanted services. I arrived on time for my appointment and after limited of paperwork(mostly online sign-in) I was escorted to an examination room where he began treatment(shortly after greeting and observations. checkout desk was swift and I was back in my car at 45 minutes after check-in! I am sure to return for other treatment that was not sought on this date since I believe Dr. Kia would likely has a treatment in mind !
Very nice, intelligent and smart young doctor. Very informative. He cares about his patients.
He is a great doctor, he knew what I needed to fix my problems and was able to quickly identify my areas of concern without me saying I would definitely recommend him to others....
He was informative about my condition and he treated me right away. I was in and out within 15 mins. Very nice guy as well as his staff
He and his staff were great!
Dr. Kia is very professional and highly personable. He is very attentive to your needs and listens patiently. I had a great experience and I would highly recommend him and his office.
Not at all satisfied. I went to see him because of my acne. Not once did he look at my skin to see what kind of acne I had, what stage it was in.. Or to even make sure if it was acne! He went along with it because I said it was acne? Secondly- he recommended what I already knew from Google. Was in and out in 5 minutes. Overall, wouldn't recommend this doctor. Service doesn't match his super star information provided in his profile
I think Dr.Kia is a good doctor he came in told us what was wrong and how to get if under control I would tell any and everybody about him.....Thanks Dr.Kia
Very kind, personable and thorough. I highly recommend Dr Kia!!

He was very fast and didn't really explain my condition. Gave me some prescriptions and then sent me on my way. Medications did not work and went to another dermatologist who was able to assist.
Visit was through. Options were clearly explained. Dr Kia's demeanor was professional and personal.
He diagnosed my daughter really fast, this was a follow up visit . Wish we had better details about what triggers her outbreak of eczema .
