Verified Patient Reviews
I highly recommend Dr Matt!
I went in for a variety of spots and bumps on my skin from sun, aging and scaring. He was friendly and patient. He seems to know his subject well. He took his time explaining each problem. He treated all of the different blemishes immediately and with less pain than expected. All in all a very satisfying visit.
Everything went fine. No new moles to carve out of my skin!
Dr. Matt and his staff are friendly, caring, efficient and encouraging. The office is light, bright and cheerful with enjoyable music playing in the background and delightful views of the cityscape. Dr. Matt took his time explaining everything to me thoroughly and answered all of my questions patiently. I highly recommend him and plan to tell everyone about my wonderful experience !!
Really pleased. Dr. Matt has a calm and friendly bedside manner-he made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great dermatologist.
The secretary was distracted and borderline negligent, she went to buy shampoo and forgot to announce me. After waiting we'll over an hour I walked up to the counter and she was surprised to see me. At the end she charged me the wrong copay amount and I have been receiving bills from them for months. The Doctor was not much better and I found him to be condescending and inattentive.
He was very patient and kind with me. I was really nervous and he calmed me down and I was not uncomfortable during this visit with a procedure I had. Would recommend him without a doubt!
I always have a great experience with Dr. Matt and his treatment has helped my skin tremendously.
Overall a very good visit. The fact Dr. Matt sees patients on a Saturday shows he's in touch with real people who work during the week. He is patient, explains his procedures and is very gentle.
Dr. Lawrence is the best by far, thank you.
Dr. Matt is the most meticulous, knowledgeable, and wonderful doctor who also never rushes you out the door. He is great at every aspect of dermatology! Simply the best!
Dr. Matt always has answers and solutions for my skincare needs and he really cares. I have been his patient for several years and even though I don't live in the area it is well worth the drive and I will continue to go to him for my skin issues. He has helped me greatly and for that I am thankful.
Dr. Matt is an excellent physician and the most wonderful and kind person
Dr Matt is the most gifted and wonderful doctor . I have gone to many different dermatologists in town over the years, but there is no comparison- Dr. Matt is the best. He is a perfectionist who always pays attention and listens, never rushes his patients out the door. What a gem!
Dr. Matt and his staff are terrific!!!
Dr Matt is on of the most knowledgable doctors I have met, he is very patient and easy to talk to, he explains everything with details and offers options to resolve what ever the case. I highly recommend Dr Matt and his team. His team are incredible, so friendly and professional. Sean
I find Dr. Matt both personable and professional. He is very easy to talk to, listens and does great work.
Dr. Matt is the most excellent dermatologist. I trust him and his professional opinion completely. The best doctor I have ever been to and the most wonderful person as well. Plus, the location couldn't be more perfect.
Dr Matt is kind intelligent and knows what he doing. His staff is awesome and nice. If you live on the Westside he is a must and worth the drive if you don't
Dr. Matt is AWESOME, this isn't my 1st visit with him. LOVE love his bedside manner so to speak. I think I TALK him to death, but he takes it all in and offers great advice... I recommend him!
Very understanding, listened and gave advice, answered all questions and gave a prescription. Good follow up and seemed like he genuinely cared
Wonderful doctor and staff!
Pretty thorough when checking my moles.
Dr. Matt is the most wonderful person and the most knowledgeable and meticulous doctor.
Dr. Matt is the absolute best dermatologist I have ever found.
Dr. Matt is the kindest, nicest, most knowledgable dermatologist I have been to. He will take his time and patiently answer any questions and concerns you may have, which is not the case with most other doctors. Highly recommended! The best doctor and the nicest person!
He was very kind and understood I was scared! He knew exactely what I had and treated me for this
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 best in town from the receptionist to his assistant this is the doctor to keep you looking good.
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.
Dr. Matt is awesome - he keeps me looking my best.
Honestly, I felt much comfortable and relaxed when I came in office and was called right away...good!! Thanks!
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.
Been going for a year, and I would highly recommend him. In town and gets results.
Dr. MATT is the BEST. I trust him completely because he has always known how to help me and always does. In addition to his fine care the office is very well run and the staff is both exceptional and friendly.
He is awesome! Katherine M.
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.
I really like Dr. Matt and his staff, but they seem to run late a lot.
Thanks, Dr. Matt! It's not always fun going to the doctor, but your office staff was friendly and you were very knowledgeable and easy going. The office visit was a breeze.
he took his time and was very thorough! Before during and after he made sure I never felt any pain
Dr. Matt and his staff ave very competent and professional. All of my questions were answered and all procedures explained. All in all the appointment was a very positive and pleasant experience. However, I am waiting for the results of a biopsy.
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 and his staff are wonderful. Kind caring and helpful. They make it really easy to deal with uncomfortable things. :)
Very thorough and very professional
Best dermatologist I've ever been to.
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.
Much better than any other dermatologist I've ever consulted. Well informed and very helpful.
Dr Matt is a terrific doctor. He is very knowledgeable and inspires complete confidence.
waited 45 minutes. did not have record of my zocdoc appt. was not terribly thorough.
Very knowledgable and professional caring
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.
I like doctor Matt. He always listens to my skin concerns, examines me and takes the appropriate remedies.
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.
I travel all the way from downtown Los Angeles to see Dr. Matt in Santa Monica. His great care is always worth the extra time and effort!)
Dr Matt is knowledgable and easy going. Very professional and personable. Great Doctor!
He explains things very well!
Excellent outcome with cosmetic procedure , very proficient & professional
He is interested in helping his patients
Extremely knowledgeable and attentive.
Overall a good experience. He seemed knowledgable but gave his information in small portions than talking them out as he was overlooking (which I personally prefer). I don't like the awkward silence.
Overall, it was a very good appointment. He seemed very knowledgeable, and helped me out with all of the issues I pointed out. I also walked out of the office with a bunch of freebies and coupons for the prescriptions.
Very intelllgent nice doctor. Nice office staff too.
I was on a business trip and he and Zocdoc were effortless and professional.
Very kind man. He listened, I felt respected... and because of that I felt confident in the choices he presented to me.
I wouldnt recommend this MD to anyone. Doctor doesnt listen to his patients and insists on his own way. I came there for a refill on differin gel and fillers. He wouldnt RX differin for no reason. His communication skills are terrible, and he doesnt like to explain anything. If you have questions about anything, he wont answer. The nurse was shaking her head the whole time, disagreeing with the things he said. He is extremely old, it might be time for him to retire. Going to him left a bad taste in my mouth about ZocDoc....is it for offices who have problems retaining loyal patients? Also, if you cant score meter parking (for 20 min) be prepared to pay in the garage. My 25 min apt cost me 10 bucks in their garage. Needless to say i was unhappy for so many reasons. Waste of my time and money!
Dr. Matt was very helpful and personable. I would recommend seeing him for those on the Westside of Los Angeles and I already have.
Dr. Lawrence was great!
Dr. Matt was great - he took the time to be sure he understood what was going on, and wasn't in a rush at all. Our appointment was probably 45 minutes and I felt like all my problems were addressed.
This is not my first time visiting Dr. Matt, hence my return as I was highly impressed with his treatment last time I was there. This visit was also very satisfactory and I feel confident in his diagnosis and treatment.
Always the best care and amazing results.
Good over all experience
Always amazing. As a guy he makes me feel comfortable what would usually be womens procedures. Dr Matt has fixed my acne and has used the latest technology to make my face look like a 26 year old.
This is my first visit and so far I like him. I want to wait three weeks to give my higherly recommend.
He's a great diagnostician, with a reassuring manner. I feel completely comfortable with him and would enthusiastically recommend him for all dermatology needs.
Excellent treatment yet again !
My visit was perfect. The entire staff was very kind. I was attended to very quickly. Dr. Matt was very patient and helpful in his diagnosis. I strongly recommend him.
Today was my first visit to him and I was very happy with the whole experience. He was on time, helpful and very personable. I am also impressed with how quickly I was able to make an appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Lawrence!
Cant say enough. Dr Matt is amazing. 2 years now in a row. Botox treatment like no other !
He looks weird.
Perfect every time !
I made the biggest mistake of my life and wasted almost 2 hours of my time and money to see this doctor, both him and his office staff were very unprofessional. He did not listen to me and my child and rushed me out of his office finishing up in less than 5 minutes while I waited for 1 hour and 17 minutes there. AVOID,there are better doctors out there.
The office was friendly. Did not have to wait long.Was happy wih the doctors nowledge of my condition.
Solved a problem that another derm just said would go away with a cortisone cream.
Very competent and knowledgeable
Excellent and thorough
Only dermatologist I could find that did Saturday appointments. I have been going to see Dr Matt since 2008. Dr Matt, knows his practice well, did a good job answering all my questions and concerns. Thanks
