Very thorough and explained every step - including insurance and payment! She asked thorough questions and went though different treatment options as opposed to giving me one and sending me in my way. Really appreciated that. The receptionist she was also extremely helpful and patient with my questions.

The waiting time is a bit long but it seems that its like that only on the day of the new patients (I was new). Other then that, Dr. Lyubov is very good! Caring, patience, not rushing you out like someof the doctors, explaining everything. Very professional and pleasant.

Excellent doctor. I came with a couple of issues. She immediately identified what was the problem and what was not. Doctor gave me sample ointment to treat one issue and I prescription for the other one. It was amazing, that fromwhat I've suffered for several years have disappeared within 2 weeks. Other doctor was giving me different treatment which never helped. Very bright doctor!

Very honest and helpful doctor. Glad I came! She didn’t want to prescribe just anything or recommend a procedure, if anything she was talking me out of it. But I am persistent and will be doing IPL. Lyubov is awesome!

She and her associate listened to me and responded to my concerns with professionalism and yet they weren’t so professional that I wasn’t comfortable. I spoke openly and honestly about my experiences and they listened and acted accordingly.Wish all doctors understood you are the boss and have final say so in all matters concerning your body.

This was my first visit to a dermatologist, I was nervous going in. Dr. Avshalumova was amazing! She was very professional, her and her staff handled personal information with ease. She prescribed me medicine to help with my issue, and evensuggested additional help for a problem I didn't realize I had. Insurance coverage was great, typical copay and promptly sent to pharmacy. Will definitely be going back & recommending to friends.

This was my first visit to Dr. Avshalumova for my annual skin exam after bouncing around between different dermatologists. She was very thorough and observant in her initial assessment, making note of a few patches she wanted to keep an eyeon, but not finding anything of immediate concern. She struck the right balance between attentiveness and reassurance. The office is modest compared to some of the others I've been to, but I will definitely return for follow-up.
