This was a really good experience. The office was clean and lovely. The staff was extra kind (even brought me a sparkling water!) Doctor Matt took his time and was very thorough. He listened, was kind, and I felt very comfortable. They even gave me coupons for the prescriptions.

I was SO impressed by Mohini. She went above and beyond with guest experience. I was trying to get my treatment done right away because I had been dealing with issues for a very long time with getting to the right doctor and for my prescription coverage from my insurance. Mohini sensed my urgency and immediately took action to calling my insurance in order to get the treatment I was seeking for the next day. I was so overwhelmed with gratitude when she called the next morning to let me know everything was cleared and I was good to go with the appointment. Dr. Matt was also a joy. He answered all my questions, and even made some great suggestions about concerns I had that I didn't even ask him about. He is very knowledgable and willing to help. I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Matt and Mohini for making me feel taken care of and as though I mattered!

The receptionists were awful. From the waiting room we could hear them talking about the doctors, assistants, and patients! When we asked about how much longer the wait would be (after waiting 40 minutes), the receptionist huffed and puffed so loudly that I was embarrassed for her and the doctors that work there. Terrible staff.

I have been going to Dr Matt for about 9 years. I love the office staff and find them friendly and helpful. Dr Matt listens well and actually has a good sense of humor. He is thoughtful, takes time to explain treatment and answer questions.

I love Dr. Matt and all the ladies who assist in the office. They're all incredibly helpful and very friendly. My one frustration is that my time is just as important as theirs. I once witnessed a patient getting reprimanded for showing up late more than once... This is totally understandable, but in my last 3 visits, I have waited over 45 minutes past my appointment time repeatedly. To me, that is just as disrespectful and frustrating. It's the one reason that would cause me to go elsewhere. And unfortunately it has become a regular thing. Once in a while is understandable but for it to happen regularly is beyond annoying.

Dr. Matt is the best dermatologist in Los Angeles. I love his meticulous eye, his perfectionism, his vast knowledge and the fact he never rushes you out the door. That's why I never mind if there is a little bit of a wait, he always takes his time to do things perfectly which is very different from most dermatologists who give you 5 minutes and run to the next patient.

Everybody was a class act. Very professional with a side of humor. Great office environment with great magazines to read during my 5 minute wait. Hospitality with bottled water was nice too and the office was well appointed and well looked after.

When reviewing a physician, one should also include the staff and how they treated the patient. They also receive 5 Stars. They care and treated me in the most professional way.

Dr. Matt is the most wonderful dermatologist; knowledgable, caring, conservative and meticulous. I have tried many general and cosmetic dermatologists in Los Angeles and by far he is the best one in both aspects of dermatology. Not even close. I would highly recommend him.

I waited about an hour to be seen and when I was finally seen, I didn't really felt listened to. He tried to take care of my concerns (horrible rash) and diagnosed me with eczema. He gave me two prescriptions, one to fix a 'problem' I told him I didn't really care about or need to fix, and the other to fix the 'eczema'. The rash, if anything, has gotten worse, but I don't really feel comfortable going back. I'd recommend finding another doctor for this type of issue.

Everyone in the office was fantastic. I arrived late and they were incredibly friendly and accommodating. I saw the doctor within 5 minutes of finishing the forms. He was very patient, listened carefully, answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. No negative judgments. I've found my dermatologist!

He barely communicates. I had to ask him what the diagnosis was. He didn't educate me about the disease, causes and how to prevent /help it. He gave me a sample but barely educated me. I was very concerned and left concerned

I liked Dr. Matt as a person, but I think he might be best for cosmetic issues. I went to him for a rash that he could not diagnose, and went twice and it just got worse over the course of three months. I feel bad writing a poor review, because I think generally skin issues are very hard to diagnose, but he was not successful with my condition. I went to another doctor who had a more aggressive approach that worked better.

He is a man of few words.... A little strange too. His diagnosis isn't different from another dermatologist (I got a second opinion and biopsy somewhere else), but i plan on seeing the other dermatologist who I like better. There is no wait time at his office so that is a huge plus. Office staff is nice too.

It was a very pleasant visit to Dr. Lawrence Matt's office. The front desk staff was very nice and accommodating. I didn't wait more than a 2 or 3 minutes for my appointment. Dr. Matt was very nice also, took great care and detail in explaining what was going on and what remedy to choose to solve my ailment. Highly recommend Dr. Matt and his staff.
