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 ????

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.

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!

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.
