Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Yousefi was warm, professional, and very knowledgeable. I had a long list of issues and she patiently took the time to go over each one. I would highly recommend her.
Was waiting 25 minutes until I spoke up. Felt like I was rushed and like my questions/issues weren't that important/serious.
The doctor was with me for less than 2 minutes. She told me to use Vaseline and band-aids, and to come back in 3 months.
doctor was clearly competent and efficient and answered my questions, but i don't think she addressed me by name the entire time. the whole process felt rushed. normally these things do not bother me, but it was my first time meeting with her so would have l liked to feel more welcome.
The doctor was very pleasant and polite. I could also tell that she was being thorough and knew what she was talking about!
It such a waste of time.. not worth of money spent n time spent.. she has no professional advice or consultation
Dr Yousefi is extremely thorough, no matter how many patients she's got that day, she will spend the time to understand your concerns and give you a thorough evaluation and options review.
Absolutely no wait time and Dr. Yousefi answered all my questions and was very friendly!
Dr. Marjan Yousefi was a fantastic dermatologist. The morning of my appointment I started having abdominal pain and when I mentioned it in passing, Dr. Yousefi went out of her way to refer me to a primary care physician nearby for a day-of appointment. Dr. Yousefi is very personable and clearly cares a lot about her patients.
Dr. Yousefi was very professional and friendly. She made sure to explain everything well but also was very efficient. Front desk staff was also pleasant. No complaints here!
Dr. Yousefi was not only extremely knowledgable but equally as thorough. Such a great find!
I was happy to have found Dr. Yousefi via ZocDoc. She saw me on time, was open to answering a range of questions and had a good "bedside manner."
Dr. Yousefi was great - she was knowledgeable, thorough, and friendly.
She's wonderful and her staff is professional.
She was very precise and listened to my concerns but I felt rushed like she was very busy.
Outstanding in every way. Thorough, caring, personable, and takes time to insure everything of concern treated. For me with personal and family history of melanoma, I couldn't ask for a better doctor. The wait time is irrelevant because she is careful and makes sure everything is covered.
I really liked the Dr. Yousefi and the nurse who brought me into the exam room. The only issue during the appointment is that it was unclear which receptionist I should check in with. The office is shared between a dermatologist and a chiropractor, and I didn't realize that the receptionist on the left was with the chiropractor and the receptionist on the right was with dermatology. I ended up checking in with the wrong receptionist, which created unnecessary confusion. It would be great if there was a sign, or if someone had explained the situation to me when I arrived.
Dr. Yousefi was ok. But it seemed like she was in a rush to go to the next patient. I didn't get much out of this appointment.
They kept me waiting for 45 mins. I left. Not acceptable during the workday (or ever, really).
I've been seeing Dr. Yousefi regularly for more than a year and have no complaints. She is very personable and easy to talk to. She makes the somewhat awkward process of having a full body skin check as comfortable as it can possibly be under the circumstances.
I went for my first annual skin screening today. Dr. Yousefi is very nice, quick, and thorough. As a doctor, she gets five stars. Unfortunately, the front office staff provided more of a three-star experience. Let me begin by saying the women were very friendly and perfectly well mannered. My issue stemmed from the fact that the main reason I use ZocDoc is so I don't have to spend my short lunch break filling out paperwork. I arrived right on time, but when I gave them my name, they handed me a clipboard full of forms. I was disappointed that they didn't immediately know I was a ZocDoc patient. I then waited another 20 minutes for them to process my ID and insurance. At this point, my 1:30 appointment was now a 2:00 appointment. They seemed a bit disorganized, though one of the women may have been a trainee. That said, if the front staff gets up-to-speed with monitoring ZocDoc, it would have been a 5-star experience all around, AND it would save everyone involved at least 30 minutes. Time is money, after all! Will certainly go back again, just keep an eye on your ZocDoc account.
Very professional pleasant - including the staff!
Very pleasant office staff and great attitude/spirit from the doctor.
I was very happy with my visit with Dr. Yousefi, and I intend to recommend her to my friends.
Dr. Yousefi is a very thorough medical professional. She took the time to talk about my concerns and I didn't feel rushed. I would recommend her to my friends :-)
She has a great bedside manner and does not rush through appointments. She is good about recommending other doctors to see for more specialized purposes. Her office staff is also very friendly.
Dr. Yousefi is extremely professional and thorough. She also is caring and included me in making decisions. By far she is the best dermatologist I've ever seen and I'd recommend her completely.
Very kind! It was a good experience for me.
About 4 years ago, I started suffering from severe skin rashes and allergies. I met with so many other dermatologists and none of them could help me. After my allergies got worse in 2 years, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Yousefi and she immediately diagnosed the problem. Prescribed the medicines and now my rashes have reduced or are in control. She is an excellent doctor, knowledgeable, patient and never rushes. Sometimes there is a long wait time but worth it.
Very knowledgeable, kind, did not lecture!
Very nice and it was a nice and clean office. I did mention to the assistant I wanted to get some more information about skin care and the Dr. just rushed out of the room after she was done w my examination so I did not like that as much. But other than that she was great and I liked the staff and office. Very professional and friendly.
Other than the long wait, everything about my appointment went great. I will go back to her for any future issues.
I had a great first experience with Dr Yousefi. She was thorough and personable and I was seen right away. Office was clean and comfortable and office staff was very friendly.
She was very knowledgeable, did not rush through the appointment, made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions. Staff was helpful and friendly.
She is great. Friendly, competent, trustworthy. No wait time. Highly recommended.
Exceeded my expectations.
The office is bright and clean and the staff is professional. My meeting with Dr. Marjan was simple and easy and she is very well-informed.
Dr. Yousefi is a great dermatologist who explains concepts well. When reviewing a treatment option, she provides a fair presentation of the pros and cons. I appreciate she takes my insurance (many derms in the D.C. area do not; they leave it up to the patient to bill their insurance company). Without a doubt, it's clear that Dr. Yousefi knows her specialty and I consider her a trusted provider.
very cold nature; poor bedside manner
I was unimpressed with her thoroughness and the friendliness of her staff.
The whole experience was very pleasant since the staff and the doctor were professional and competent. They were accomodating as to when my next appointment was which was also appreciated. The office decor was light, airy and contemporary looking due to the colors and air ducts above showing which made it feel like a loft but definitely not a typical doctor's office. Also, the location for me is ideal.
Extremely long wait today.
Best dermatologist I've ever been to. I arrived early and was seen early. Dr Yousefi was very personable and very thorough. I was there for my annual skin check and she found a mole that she recommended having removed- and she took care of it right then and there! And it didnt hurt AT ALL. I would highly recommend her!!
Dr. Yousefi is wonderful and her office is accommodating and polite.
Wonderful, kind and caring. Took the time to listen. Great office, great doctor.
I only saw her once but she seemed honest, knowledgeable and professional. I appreciated that she helped me where she could, but didn't insist on follow up appointments or unnecessary treatments.
Excellent visit. The minor delay was caused by the time required for me to complete the new patient forms. I truly appreciated Dr Yousefi's care and concern, not only for the purpose of my visit , but for my overall health as well!! Glad I found her!!
Very informative. Didn't feel like I was being rushed at all. Not annoyed in the least by my million questions!
It's frustrating to wait 30 minutes for an appointment lasting 5 minutes first thing in the morning.
Very pleasant and accomodating. The procedure was over in less than 15 minutes. I have healed quickly with no scar. Would go back to her again. .
Dr. Yousefi was personable and determined to make a treatment plan that would best suit my needs. She was kind, honest, and eager to help. I highly recommend Dr. Yousefi!
Dr. Yousefi treated my skin cancer last year is an overall great physician: thorough, good bedside manner and always concise in answering questions. My whole family now does mole checks and are more aware of sun-protection.
Excellent and thoughtful health care provider.
I was very satisfied. Professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend her.
My first appointment with Dr. Yousefi was a great experience. Her front desk staff were professional and helpful, and I was seen by the doctor a few minutes prior to my scheduled appointment. She was very friendly and thorough, and I highly recommend her.
Excellent. Matter of fact and informative.
I come to see Dr. YousefI for my mild acne scars/acne and my hair loss problems. Never have I seen a doctor with that attitude of "give up there's just no cure". She prescribed a cream and some pills to try controlling my active acne. But there was no kinda of treatment for my scars (notice that I have very mild scarring) I asked about CO2 resurfacing and laser treatments but she didn't like the idea. I was the one suggesting treatments not her. Other than that, she was professional, easy to talk to you, quite and quick.
Great in all respects.
Quick, efficient, answered everything thoroughly, not much to complain about.
Wait time was a bit longer than expected, but exam was thorough. Dr. addressed issues immediately. The quality of care was worth the wait!
It was horrible and I left with nothing. She did not know about African American hair, she told me there is nothing to help me I paid my co-pay and left with nothing, i have NEVER expierienced a doctor that did not know about certain ethnicities she should state that she cannot help African American people. It was a waste of my time and my money i felt condemed as soon as she place eyes on me..I am still angry about this I guess i have to play the race card when picking my doctors shocking and sad
Dr Yousefi is much more than a great dermatologist. She takes an interest in your overall well being, asking about such things as your primary care as she checks for skin cancer. Friendly, professional, extremely thorough, and yet quick, she truly cares about her patients, making sure their welfare comes first. Can't say enough good things about this doctor. John V.
She is very knowledgeable and professional. Knows her business.
The doctor was excellent, but the waiting time in the waiting room and the examination room was excessive. Moreover, the office is sparsely furnished and did not make the wait any less unpleasant.
I was very frustrated by the amount of time I had to wait. My appointment was at 11:20, but the doctor did not make an appearance until 12:23. Other than the long wait time, the visit went well.
Great as usual, but long wait with a lot of patients
I was seen by the doctor in under ten minutes. Dr. Yousefi took her time to answer my questions. She injected the Botox instead of her nurse which is a big plus for me.
It was a good visit. Nice office, location. Everything in pristine condition.
Excellent in all respects. I highly recommend Dr. Yousefi to prospective patients. She is highly competent and compassionate. At my follow-up visit in January, she was also highly competent and compassionate -- a thoroughly professional doctor.
She was great, the office is a little strange though, it doesn't convey a sense that you're getting professional medical.
I saw Marjan for a first time dermatology appointment. The appointment was quick and easy, and Marjan was informed and professional. This was my first experience with a dermatologist, so I'm not sure how it compares to others, but overall I was satisfied.
Dr. Yousefi is very kind and she was thorough with explanation. She made me feel comfortable as she walked me through my situation. My prescription was called in by ther assistant. The over all experience was wonderful.
Good experience and will definitely use Dr Yousefi as my dermatologist going forward.
Very direct, professional, explained everything, conducted a procedure quickly & without pain.
Her office never notified me via zocdoc she was out of town, so my trip to her office was wasted!
Services provided in a technically proficient and professional manner by board certified physician. Dr. Yousefi is easy to talk to and provides excellent care and follow up. Front desk staff and assistant(s) are great. Office is conveniently located in a loft building adjacent to Rt 50, near Clarendon, in N. Arlington community. Free parking on site.
Dr. Marjan Yousefi was great! She was very kind, checked my skin and let me know she saw nothing suspicious. She was courteous to tell me where she was checking as well and gave me more information about my birthmark.
I only had to wait about 5 minutes to see the doctor. She was kind and thorough. I would definitely go back!
It probably set a record for being on time. Marjan saw me within a few short minutes of my appointment time, plus I was done within half an hour!
Even though I was 15 minutes late for my appointment, she still saw me and even spoke about insurance claims. Cool Beans!
Dr. Yousefi was friendly, professional, and made me very comfortable while she did her exam. She addressed all concerns clearly. Highly recommend.
She was great, quick and thorough.
Very pleasant & professional. Support staff friendly & efficient.
Dr. Yousefi is great! Her staff is just average. Not friendly, but not rude. Just there.
I was very impressed with Dr. Yousefi. She diagnosed my skin condition and explained the treatment to me. I will definitely go back to her again. Also, my husband is one of her patients and is very impressed with Dr. Yousefi.
DR MARJAN YOUSEFI HAS A KIND BEDSIDE MANNER. SHE ALWAYS HAS A WARM SMILE AND PLEASANT GREETING THAT PUTS YOU AT EASE. DR YOUSEFI EXPLAINS YOUR PROCEDURE THOROUGHLY. THE OFFICE AREA IS ALWAYS IN A CLEAN AND NEAT CONDITION.
I waited for almost an hour and then she only spent about 7 minutes with me. She told me I would need to come back for the short procedure of getting a small mole removed because she didn't have the time. I really liked her and thought she seemed really professional and knowledgeable. But she clearly was overbooked and didn't have the time to spend with me. Now I have to go through this again and expect to wait an hour the next time I go :(
The doctor told me point-blank she couldn't do "anything" about my skin condition, then essentially allowed me to prescribe myself an antibiotic I'd been on before. I left the office feeling hopeless and ashamed. Flash-forward a few months - I got everything under control essentially on my own. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone.
Dr. Yousefi is very professional and knowledgable. She listens to your concerns and gives you the options and discusses the risks and benefits of each option. Her office is clean and nice. It just so quiet ,needs some sort of music! The front desk though is not that welcoming! I already got my next appointment and will go back to see her.
Dr. Yousefi was very kind and professional. I felt comfortable speaking with her and she answered all of my questions.
She was very thorough! She's officially my long term dermatologist!
was good. longer wait than normal today
The doctor is nice. But after I got to the office, I waited there for almost an hour for an patient whose appointment is 5 min ahead of mine. Then why do they schedule patient so closely like this?!!!!
She was an excellent choice for my 11yr old son. Handled his initial shame and reservation perfectly - look no further for a child dermatologist!
Quick and professional.
So glad I found her! I was taken back maybe 5 minutes after filling out my forms. Was very comfortable with her and she seemed very genuine.
She was very nice and very professional. She did a very thorough mole check and answered all of my questions.
When I made the appointment through ZocDoc, I specified that this was for a full body annual check-up---but they claim they do not see what I specify on ZocDoc, and so I have to go back again for a full body annual exam. I do not know if the problem is with the office or ZocDoc--but this is definitely a problem of two visits and co-pays instead of one.
Very professional and thorough.
Very professional; answered all my questions; convenient location. Will definitely return and will recommend to others.
She is great. Super nice, and seems extremely competent. I would definitely visit her again.
Dr. Yousefi is very professional and knowledgeable, and has a great rapport with patients. I highly recommend her.
Very professional, I would recommend her to everybody. Thanks
Dr. Yousefi is a great doctor. Very good at explaining things, very sweet, and very thorough; I went in for something unrelated, but she checked a mole on my neck just to see if it was okay (it was.) Great dermatologist.
Very thorough and professional.
She was professional, didn't rush the visit, took time to answer all my questions and has a great way about her.
The wait to see Dr. Yousefi was a bit over thirty minutes but was well worth the wait. She was very thorough and professional. I felt that the necessary action items were laid out and my questions were answered well.
Was seen right on time. She is incredibly friendly and I didn't feel rushed at all. Absolutely recommend.
I was very impressed with Dr. Yousefi. She was professional, thorough, and also very engaging. I am now a loyal client!
Very professional. Doesn't make the appointment feel rushed and listens to all your concerns. I've been to other dermatologist in the Northern VA / DC area and she is the best I've found. It can take a while to get on her calendar sometimes.
She is a great doctor! Checked my skin thoroughly for cancer and taught me how to look for changing moles, etc. Wait time was very short. Highly recommended.
Very friendly and professional. Answered all my questions and concerns.
Good visit, but it took 45 minutes to get in to see her AFTER the original time of my appointment
Dr Yousefi has a very friendly and approachable manner.
She was kind,efficient and professional. She appeared to listen to me. I think that's important.
She should work on her bedside manner. The whole appointment felt quite rushed.
She and her staff are outstanding, HIGHLY recommended.
Very knowledgable and thorough! She took the time to answer any questions I had and gave me recommendations for the best ways to protect my skin in particular. I went in for a skin exam and she pointed out any moles that I should keep an eye on. She was also very friendly and made me feel at ease. :)
Appreciate her through examination and always have a good conversation about any of my concerns.
Dr. Yousefi was very nice and took the time to answer all of my questions. As she admitted herself she doesn't push unnecessary cosmetic procedures, which was good to hear.
Very professional, excellent service.
She was nice, professional, and appropriate, but I would have liked a more thorough body scan. She checked my entire body in less than 2 minutes.
She is a fantastic doctor with a sense of humor. It took her all of 30 seconds to diagnose my condition, and then she talked me through some treatment options and the side effects of each one. We decided on a treatment that worked best for me and I was happily on my way back to work. I absolutely recommend Dr. Yousefi!
Very attentive and helpful with my problem.
Great doctor, very nice, and very sharp. Picked up on something a previous doctor had missed.
I had never been to a dermatologist before but my primary care provider suggested that I go and get a check up. She did a very thorough check up and then cut two moles off for me. One thing though, she did not seem to offer much fun stuff (like Botox or whatever) so if you are looking for a medi-spa type of place I don't know if this was a good fit for you. It was more focused on dermatological health.
She was friendly and diagnosed me within minutes. The appointment was smooth and enjoyable. I would recommend to a friend.
Perfect and thorough as always. I pointed out three questionable spots ( which were negative). She finds something that I never even considered, removed it, and life is good. Great job as always.
She was very nice but I was conerned about how thoroughly she checked my moles. The last dematologist I saw would examine each one but she briefly glanced over my body and then asked if I had any that concerned me. Eek! I don't know! I can't see all of my body, plus I'm not a dermatologist so I don't know what should concern me!
She really listened to all my questions and wasn't impatient at all.
Her manner is wonderful and she is very thorough. The only thing I wish her office had was one of those mole mapping machines to electronically document your mole sizes and locations instead of relying on my memory as to how much they have increased in size, if they've changed at all, or if there are any new ones.
I think the doctor was very good.
Very nice doctor and good bedside manner.
Dr. Yousefi is very professional and did a great job with me. She really took my needs into consideration, and helped me out a lot. Her staff is AWESOME. I'm super forgetful and had a multiple bumps in the road with my medications, they definitely went out of the way for me and helped me get back on track with everything. Highly recommended!
I got right in to see the doctor. She was thoughtful, informative and answered all my questions. And I found the staff to be helpful and friendly.
Very professional and helpful!
Great. She is very personable. Explains things very well. You not feel like you are just another patient. She is very efficient; seems to get patients in and out quickly but without impacting the care and patient counseling that is needed.
This was our first visit to Dr. Yousefi. My 4 year old had an appointment to discuss a flare up on her scalp. Dr. Yousefi and her staff were extremely kind and our visit was pleasant. The doctor took her time with us, giving us advice not only on how to treat my daughters condition, but on how to care for her hair to minimize issues as she grows older. We will follow up in a month to check my daughters progress.
Dr. Yousefi performed a yearly screening for me. She located a mole that needed to be removed and performed the removal surgery. She contacted me promptly when results were in to let me know I didn't need to worry. She also saw my husband for a screening and we were both very happy with our care.
Outstanding, as always!
I highly recommend Dr. Yousefi. I was taken back to a room on time, a nurse asked me the standard questions, and then Dr. Yousefi was in within 5 minutes. We discussed my adult acne issues and she gave me a series of options and their likelihood of success. I was pleasantly surprised that she actually cared what I thought about each of the options when determining what would be best for me. Dr. Yousefi also did my annual skin screening at this visit, checking every inch of skin (even between toes). Overall Dr. Yousefi was very personable and pleasant; I didn't at all feel hesitant to ask her about any of my concerns. I also didn't feel rushed. Great experience!
She takes her time and explains things very clearly.
Dr. Yousefi is great, but the last two times I have gone there was a 30 and 45 minute wait time. It would be helpful if they were to call their appointments to let them know there are delays.
Very competent , friendly and participative.
The doctor was great, the wait time was not.
She was very pleasant, helpful, and informative.
Very professional with great attitude.
Excellent....I highly recommend her!!
Her office and her staff were very pleasant. However, when I had questions for the doctor about the skin condition she said she thought I had, she wrote it down so I could "google" it... Do you know what googling medical conditions for information does to people?! Since it's a reoccurring condition, I have no idea if she even diagnosed correctly.
she was very nice and friendly Dr I was extremely nervous but when she walked in the room she had an energy that just made me feel better, very profession and listened didn't rush and helped with my problem i will definitely see her again
Dr. Yousefi was great; she took time to do a thorough evaluation and listen to my concerns. After being on a topical cream for years (from another dermatologist), Dr. Yousefi warned me that it was NOT to be used continuously or on the face, etc. She re-filled that prescription and gave me an alternative to start incorporating. After the appointment I thoroughly read the drug literature that comes with the drugs and, lo and behold, there are warnings galore about the dangers of using the cream regularly. Since I'd been on it since childhood it never occurred to me to second-guess my previous doctor, I'm so glad Dr. Yousefi pointed this out to me.
I wanted to get a baseline skin cancer check, but the doctor didn't do a full-body scan -- just a quick eyeball here & there! As a patient with very fair skin and a history of sunburns, I need a dermatologist who is more thorough!
This was for my 9 year old. The wait was a bit long with elementary school aged kids. The room was clean and comfortable, but there was a very noisy machine running. The doctor was cordial and listened. She said herself she didn't know what the problem was nor what caused it. She prescribed for the symptoms. She's hoping that treating the symptoms will fix the problem. We'll see... I would give her another try because at this point it's hard to judge of her competency.
Very good doctor--she's very to-the-point; some people may want more chatter but I enjoyed her quick check-up.
I am very happy with Dr. Yousefi. She is professional and makes you feel comfortable and not rushed. She removed a suspicious mole and I was so nervous going into the appointment but it didn't hurt at all. She is gentle and comforting and let's you know what to expect.
Great visit ... Professional and answered all questions. Gave treatment options and left choice in the course of action.
Dr. Yousefi was very personable and very professional. I believe I have found my new dermatologist!!!
Quick, easy, polite
Very nice, clean office and friendly staff.
Dr. Yousefi was great and very thorough. The assistant was also very friendly. The lady behind the front desk wasn't very friendly and was on the phone signing to me the entire time I signed in. She wasn't very personable. But I'll take that for an awesome doctor!
Dr. Yousefi was very thorough, polite and friendly. Great staff in the exam rooms. Loved the location and cleanliness of her office.
I've been struggling with bad skin for years, after one appointment and day of the treatment Dr. Yousefi recommended, my skin is already feeling much better.
A great doctor, takes her time, professional, gets to know her patients. Excellent!
Very kind, excellent bedside manner, explained condition thoroughly and answered questions about future treatment and hypothetical procedures. Respected my opinions. Would absolutely visit her practice again.
Nice doctor. Efficient office.
Was very friendly and took the time to listen to my concerns.
She's very knowledgeable and has a reassuring, easy manner. Her office suite is very clean and calming. She's very efficient and thorough - highly recommend!
Excellent. Will absolutely be booking appointments here for future procedures.
Wonderful! She was friendly, thorough, and patient when I asked questions.
I went to see Dr. Yousefi for one diagnosis and she also gave recommendations for a secondary issue. I would recommend her.
She was great. The only drawback to the whole visit was that the office waiting room smelled sort of bad (like smoke), but I think it was just the person sitting next to me because I didn't notice it once he left.
Legitimately my only complaint was that the office was very warm (they were blasting the heat). But Dr. Yousefi was extremely professional and very quick, but thorough. I would definitely recommend her and will be visiting her again in the future.
I have a history of melonoma and visited the Doctor for a full body check. If you are open with her about your concerns, she will be clear and thorough with her examination. I had a very pleasant experience with the doctor
I really think that she helped me. I don't think I had any severe case. I have shall I say mild adult acne and want to treat it as well as a rash that was found out to be eczema. All and all it was okay.
Easy to schedule, very professional, was given full attention and more than enough time, very detailed explanations, highly recommend
Great dermatologist! She's friendly and doesn't rush the appointment. I'm very happy with the Botox and Restylane treatments I've received. I have other dermatologists in the area and will definitely stay with Dr. Yousefi.
Based on all the great reviews on ZocDoc (but coincidentally, not elsewhere as I've now seen), I was really looking forward to seeing Dr. Yousefi. I've had acne scarring/hyperpigmentation problems for many years and this is the first time I was seeing a dermatologist for it. I've been extremely self-conscious about it for a long time and wear heavy foundation to cover it up. I research potential options often and try OTC products, to no avail. I finally wanted to do something about it even though seeing a dermatologist was an expensive option for me - as such, I was both apprehensive and a little nervous but optimistic for this appointment. The visit to Dr. Yousefi was really disappointing. The receptionists are unfriendly and almost rude, barely address you or answer questions. Dr. Yousefi seems very detached, uncaring, and rushed. I barely had time to tell her what I wanted fixed and she would talk over me every time I tried to explain anything. She also made it seem like there was little to no hope for part of the problem (scarring) - wasn't even open to discussing options and very quickly and casually prescribed a cream for the hyperpigmentation that she said may or may not work. It felt like a very generic solution, she asked almost no questions, and looked at my face for all of 2 minutes. I felt like I couldn't even explain to her how upsetting this skin condition was for me and discuss options. When I came home, I googled a bunch of potential options for these problems, none of which she suggested or even brought up with me. I left feeling very much like I had wasted a lot of money for nothing and very disheartened, like there's no hope for my skin problems. Really discouraged. I hope this cream works - it's not covered by my insurance... but I would not return or recommend to others.
This clinic caters to plastic surgery. If you want a real doctor that cares I recommend you try some place else. The atmosphere isn't very welcoming. I had a rash on my neck and the lady told me it was eczema without testing it even though i explained to her that I treated it with eczema medication from my daughter. She wrote a prescription which I filled and it didn't clear up the rash. Waste of time and money.
I couldn't have been happier with my appointment w/ Dr. Yousefi. I went for an annual skin screening (my first ever). I obviously had no idea what to look for but I knew it was a good idea to have a checkup just to be on the safe side. Dr Yousefi explained what to look for when self-examining my skin, what was of concern and what wasn't, how often I would need screenings and preventative measures. She was thorough but not overly clinical, treating me like an actual person, not just another patient. I highly recommend Dr. Yousefi to anyone needing a dermatologist or skin consultation!
Dr. Yousefi was kind and patient with both my 3-year old son and me. She was able to see both of us at the same time even though I did not have an appointment for myself and requested to see her when I arrived for my son's appointment. She listened to all of my concerns and was very helpful without pushing me into any procedures. I will definitely bring all of my family members to her in the future.
I have been to 5 or 6 different dermatologists over the years in several states and countries. I put Dr Yousefi at the top of the list. She is attentive, informative, thorough, good natured and efficient. The office is clean and tidy and the staff is friendly and on the ball. Highly recommended.
It went well, and I like this doctor.
I really like going to Dr. Yousefi. She is very approachable and makes you comfortable to ask any questions that you have. She never rushes you out and makes detailed notes so that she can track your progress. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
outstanding, engaging professional.
Dr. Yousefi was very knowledgable and easy to talk to. She made well-reasoned recommendations and explained why she preferred one course of action over another. The only critique I would make is that I felt like she was a little rushed and therefore didn't offer any suggestions outside of her responses to my questions.
She was knowledgable, asked thorough questions, and was very personable.
She was polite and explained everything. Very easy to talk too and her prescriptions actually worked. Would see again.
Less than 5 minute wait. Love how she didn't push an oral antibiodic and pointed me to OTC medications with the same efficacy and less cost than prescription.
My Mother and I really liked everyone and all that they did for us.
Dr. Yousefi is personable, professional and attentive. I was seen within 15 minutes of my scheduled appointment time. She listened to my concerns and offered both treatment options and clear advice in what I could expect. I look forward to my next appointment.
Very well spoken. Took time to listen to and answer my questions.
The doctor was friendly, and helpful.
Very nice experience
She's very knowledgeable and answered all my questions with ease. Highly recommended. She is pretty busy though, so make sure you come prepared!
I thought she was very sweet. But I just went in for a screening and walked out with several prescriptions that just weren't necessary. I have definitely had more thorough skin screenings.
Dr Marjan yousefi was very professional and pleasant. She addressed all my questions, explained to me all my options and let me choose from one of them. My only concern was from the front desk receptionist who seemed more concerned about answering her cellphone than taking care of the patients... She didn't even ask if I wanted to schedule my follow up exam! Other than that, I am highly pleased with my experience with Dr. Marjan Yousefi and would defintely recommend her to my friends! + any DR who uses ZOCDOC deserves a 5 star in my book!
She was great. Seemed a little busy but she made time to do a procedure that I thought we would have to schedule for separately. I am trying to get my wife to go see the doctor based on my positive experience.
I liked Dr. Yousefi a lot. She saw me on time, answered all my questions and was very pleasant. I'd definitely recommend her.
Great experience. Will return.
Dr. Yousefi was really nice, there is convenient parking (which is a definite must in Arlington for me) and the office space was nice. Only complaint was a 45+ minute wait, and slightly rude front desk staff.
I really enjoyed my expirence with Dr. Marjan Yousefi. She made me feel really comfortable and addressed all my needs! I would diffenantly come back here when I need to and I would recommend comming here!
Very personable. Repeatedly asked if I had any questions.
Very Nice DR highly recommend ed she really know her stuff!
Dr. Marjan is great. She was professional and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend her!
I thought she was very helpful - just very busy. It was Saturday and I think you have to expect that on a Sat. I found her to be very nice and I felt very comfortable with her. I will see her again.
Very professional but yet personable.
She was nice, not overly friendly. But she definitely did her job and did it well! They were extremely timely, and I was out of there quickly.
i have seen her a couple of times now and she is very good at reminding me without chastising me about behaviors that is bad for my skin.
Dr. Yousefi was very thorough and professional.
Dr. Yousefi was very professional and courteous during my three visits.
Dr. Yousefi was very prompt and courteous. She was thorough and genuinely concerned about my well being. I was very comfortable.
she was great!
I filled out the forms for new patients, sat down, then I was called in. She saw me less than 5 minutes later. I felt very well cared for. She seemed to have plenty of time for me. Great experience!
Dr. Yousefi is one of the best doctor's I ever had. She's a true professional.
After reading reviews for Dr. Yousefi on here, I decided to make an appt to see her. She's courteous, professional and I would definitely recommend her. I felt comfortable talking to her about my skin concerns. The office itself is nice and modern, also the place is located right across from Tysons Corner mall.
Very professional, thorough, and friendly.
Dr Yousefi is a very pleasant, professional, thorough doctor who leaves no stone unturned to make sure the patient is healthy. She even asked about other health issues besides skin issues that might affect skin or overall health. Easy to talk with, spends as much time as is needed, yet complete in exam and on time. Best dermatology office I've visited.
Liked her a lot, thorough, friendly. I will return!
Very professional. Great personality. Very knowledge
It was my second visit and it went great. Very helpful and was able to answer my questions and take care of a condition I decided to ask about before I left the office. Will definitely continue to see her.
Very professional, very prompt service (was seen before I was done with the intake paperwork). The staff is new and easily confused though.
Very personable, efficient, knowledgeable. Will definitely go back.
Very good experience. I will go back.
Dr Marjan was extremely professional and made me feel very comfortable discussing a very sensitive topic. I highly recommend.
Dr. Yousefi saw my daughter several months ago and was easily able to relate to a teenager. Her bedside manner is the main reason I scheduled an appointment for myself! She put me at ease and quickly identified several different types of moles and whether they were of concern. She is confident, friendly, and astute. I strongly recommend Dr. Yousefi!
Very through and detailed oriented. Explained everything very wel.
Dr. Yousefi was professional, polite, and efficient.
Dr Yousefi was very personable and professional. The office location and hours were very convenient, and everything went very smoothly. Would happily recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
She was great. Had a mole removed. Got me in talked me through it and I was out.
I felt that she was very thorough and related to a patient in a professional, but warm manner.
She was very nice. Took more time with me than the bare minimum to ask about family history and suggested a screening for my next visit (I felt like because she cared, not because she wanted the extra money). I would highly recommend her.
Great personable Doctor.
I had to wait in the appointment room for over 30 minutes! The doctor was apologetic, but I would have appreciated a staff member letting me know there were "issues" with the previous patient. Very quick when she came to see me- didn't let me ask questions and seemed annoyed when I tried to ask a few questions.
Dr. Yousefi was great. She sees you herself and doesn't have an assistant do it like so many others.
Great! I strongly recommend Dr. Yousefi and I feel lucky to have found her. I’d recommend her to anyone!
Very pleased. The doctor answered all of my questions and was knowledgeable. I would recommend her without hesitation.
Very professional, not over friendly but not at all cold. Listened to my concerns, took in-depth notes of previous history/medications, while noting all possible treatments. Gave samples of new products. The new office is clean, yet still seemingly cluttered as she shares the office with a Chiropractor. The office entrance is through the back and you are let in via intercom. Parking is readily available for 2 hour spots on the street at her Arlington office.
Really didn't help me address the pros/cons of different medications. Felt like it was up to me to figure it out. My primary care physician was more helpful. Staff also was unprofessional, spent more time gossiping than helping.
Dr. Yousefi and her staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. However, the office building is not very accessible to those with mobility issues.
Dr. Yousefi performed a thorough skin exam and took my cancer concerns and family history seriously. She offered sound follow-up recommendations as well. She was very pleasant, not rushed, and even helped to calm my baby, who was acting fussy during the exam.
The doctor is always very professional and extremely pleasant. The office is new and very comfortable.
I had a simple issue. She was pleasant and addressed the issue.
Efficient and friendly
Although I only went to see Dr. Yousefi to get a second opinion, I found everything about this visit to be far superior to my current dermatologist (almost no wait time, Dr. Yousefi took her time with me to ensure I understood my skin condition, she is accessible and easy-to-talk to, etc.) An all around wonderful experience. I would highly recommend her. I am inclined to switch doctors to make her my regular dermatologist.
Short wait, professional staff, knowledgeable doctor with excellent manners. Highly recommended.
I've only been to see her once, but she was very nice and the service at her office was quick and efficient. I'll be able to give better ratings once we've done a follow-up...
This is my family's third year with Dr. Yousefi. We are receiving the same quality of care and level of expertise and support as we have in the past. She is progressive without being unduly aggressive, always allowing time for a patient's questions or concerns to be addressed.
She was very thorough and knowledgeable about the prescriptions
Dr. Yousefi was warm and friendly, and highly professional. She gave me a thorough examination and kept me informed as she went. I will definitely go to see her again should I have a concern or for an annual check-up, whichever comes first.
She answered all of my questions and I will be back.
My experience was excellent. She was incredibly prompt, kind, and knowledgeable. I had delayed going to the dermatologist for quite some time beceause I was disatisfied with my last few visits to other doctors in Northern Virginia. I am glad I found Dr. Yousefi and will definitely return to her from now on.
I was told i would be given samples of the drug to try prior to using the prescription, but i did not get any. Just a coupon as the medicine is very expensive. Otherwise, my condition really offers no cure, so there was not anything for the doctor to do.
Dr.Yousefi was very informative, kind and professional. I highly recommend her!
Very great. Addressed all of my concerns.
Dr. Yousefi seems like a very intelligent woman. She asked me about my general health and well being, and encouraged me to take care of myself by seeing a GP as well. I came away feeling like she actually cares about her patients.
Great bedside manner! Really easy to talk to... G
This was my second time visiting Dr. Yousefi - she was once again polite, a good listener, knowledgeable, and definitive in her diagnosis and treatment. Great dermatologist!
thorough, clear, inquisitive, caring
My son liked her a lot!
Very knowledgable. Made sure all the things I wanted to talk about (i.e.- diet, birth control, other acne medication information)were covered. Very efficient but not rushed. Highly recommended
I really liked her! She listened to everything I had to say, was thorough and really nice. She made me comfortable which I find to be a rare quality in doctors these days! Will definitely recommend her!
Very worthwhile visit
The office allowed me to reschedule my appointment an hour before I was slated to be there. The staff was friendly and so was Dr. Yousefi.
The building that the Arlington office is in was not what I was expecting, but the office itself is very nice. Dr. Yousefi saw me right away and was very kind. I would highly recommend her.
Great parking, easy to find office. Good location near Tyson's Corners Mall. The front office staff was casual, but professional, and they were able to process my insurance information quickly.
Really nice office. Any doctor's office that is smart enough to use zocdoc is a +1 for me.
I was very pleased with Doctor Yousefi. She answered all my questions and really gave a thorough exam. Much better than my last Doctor. I will definitely come back.
I appreciate your time and information. I hope to be a lot better soon
I showed up to the office early since I was a new patient and figured I should allow time to fill out paperwork, etc. By the time I finished, they were ready to see me even though my appointment wasn't for another 40 min. Very professional, nice office, positive attitude. She was very thoughtful and asked my opinions on different medications before prescribing me anything. I will definitely be going back.
She is fantastic! The office is beautiful; the staff was very helpful and nice and Dr. Yousefi made me very comfortable. She was very professional and I highly recommend her!
First visit with Dr. Yousefi. She was very professional. She seemed a little rushed but apologized for the long wait. Will see her again.
Dr Yousefi was not knowledgeable about my skin condition. She would only make guesses about the diagnosis and said that there was no cure for my skin problem and that it was just genetic and I needed to accept it. She was also very condescending when it came to light that she couldn't treat me. She did, however, write whatever prescription I requested for the skin condition. I think that she's probably someone you can see if you need some botox and need to get rid of some acne, but if you have a serious chronic skin condition, forget it.
She gave me much more information that my previous doctor. Very successful and pleasant visit.
I've always had a problem with my skin and I've always been searching for the right doctor. She listens well, is gentle, and is really there for you. I will always be going here!
Very professional, calm, and thorough.
Although I didn't get to see her right away, Dr. Yousefi was kind enough to stop in and let me know she was on her way! The consultation was quick, friendly, and straight-forward. She was also considerate of the cost of treatment. Overall, kind and helpful.
Very pleasant, listened well, minimal wait, answered all of my questions, and addressed my issue in a satisfactory manner. Can't ask for any more! Only other item is the office is a little hard to find -- it's along the back of the building and not clearly marked. Once you figure that out though, it's not a problem.
Professional and helpful!
Dr. Yousefi took time to clearly understand my issue. She was very personable and professional.
She was very professional and through. She not only addressed my concerns, but checked other areas also.
Dr. Yousefi is a very competent dermatologist. She has identified for me by eye a cancerous skin growth, and her judgment was subsequently confirmed by tests. She looked at numerous other bumps and told me they were benign.
Marjan Yousefi was great. I highly recommend her.
She's a great listener, and very professional. Highly recommended.
Very friendly. Explained everything.
The only negative to my visit was that the receptionists were a little curt with me. But the rest of the visit was very impressive - will be going back.
Very pleasant and the checkup was excellent. Had two small incisions/scrapings that I didn't feel at all. Only downside was the wait, but magazines were current.
Dr. Yousefi saw me within minutes of my arrival, was very professional and friendly, and I felt like she knew what she was doing.
I thought it was really great. I didn't have to wait and the doctor was informative and reassuring. She gave me enough information to understand my condition, how to treat it, and when and if I should need to return. Excellent consultation.
She was very professional, but her receptionist left a little to be desired. She was distracted, and gossiping.
Very friendly, professional, and results-oriented.
Friendly staff. I got in 1hr early with the full intention of waiting the full hour, but the doctor saw me immediately. She was to the point and informative and I was out of there in 15 minutes. Highly recommended.
Dr Yousefi was very nice and informed me of some tests that I may take to assist in a further evaluation of my problems.
Dr. Yousefi was wonderful. Very patient and thorough. She gave me a number of options and I will definitely suggest others use her services.
I liked her very much. Very pleasant and very professional.
Very knowledgeable; gives clear explanations
Dr. Yousefi was very professional, unhurried, easy to talk to, and explained issues in a very clear manner. She noticed something that I had not, and I had her remove and biopsy it. Her touch with this light surgery was delicate and sure.
Dr. Yousefi was very professional yet friendly. She quickly put me at ease regarding my concern about an unusual spot. My only complaint is that I did wait 30 minutes.
Dr. Yousefi was very nice, professional, and helpful. I did not feel rushed during the appointment. However, I waited for half an hour in the waiting room, and then another half hour in the appointment room, despite arriving 5 minutes early with my paperwork already completed. She responded by apologizing and saying she can't always help the schedule falling behind. Not sure if I'd see her again, though she was very good once I saw her, waiting an hour isn't acceptable.
Dr marjan was excellent. I left her office and was amazed how well the appointment went. She is very nice, and intelligent. She addressed my treatment options along with the honesty of their success. I would recommend her to my friends and family and encourage patients to seek dermatological help from her.
Very professional and addressed all my issues right there including removing painlessly a wart on my face that I thought was a flesh mole. Had several minor issues that she prescribed for dry skin and scalp. She understood black skin and hair issues which I found most non-black doctors don't address. Saw me without a referral which my insurance kaiser didn't provide. I will be back hopefully with a referral! Excellent care.
I had a 9:30 am appointment. I saw her arrive at 9:45 and I wasn't taken to an exam room until 10:10 am.
Short wait, very nice doctor, very knowledgeable, seemed to genuinely care about delivering good service. Would definitely recommend.
I visitted Dr. Yousefi for my skin evaluation for the first time. She was very forth right with my needs and diognosis. I plan on going back for a follow up.
She was quick, thorough, and to the point. First dermatologist I've even been to but I was satisfied with my consultation and will likely return.
Very personable. Excellent bedside manner. Throughly explained items. Took sufficient time. Would highly recommend.
We love Dr. Yousefi..she is thorough, professional and very attentive to our needs. You never feel rushed when you visit her. She always takes time to answer your questions. My family has been seen by her for over 3 years now, my son, daughter, myself and now my husband. It was my niece who first referred her to us!
I liked Dr. Yousefi, but when I walked in at 9:58, they told me I was early (my appointment was at 10). They had me down for 11. I showed them my phone where zocdoc had sent me a text confirming my 10am appointment. Thankfully, I didn't have to wait long. My only other reservation is that the office building was kind of hard to figure out - with the address facing the street, but parking in back. I parked in back and walked around to the front, only to find a very small sign stating that the entrance was in the rear. I walked back, and had to ring a doorbell to get in. The inside of the building felt kind of sketchy (pretty, though... just really empty and did not feel like any businesses were actually open). But the actual care I got from Dr. Yousefi was good, and she was very friendly.
Dr Yousefi is very knowledgable and a great doctor. I enjoyed my visit and will be back again!
Great approachable personality.
Dr Yousefi was wonderful. Very nice and very knowledgeable. Saturday appointment with no waiting. Pleasant office & office staff. Glad I found her. I'll be back.
LOVED Dr. Yousefi! She was very personable and professional. Very candid in her advice and very helpful.
i was impressed by the office and staff. very happy with my visit
Dr. Yousefi was so pleasant, attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. She let me talk but asked questions too--and made sure to answer any and all of mine. I cannot recommend this doctor highly enough! Also: my appointment was 10 minutes behind schedule (so slight it's almost not worth mentioning except--) she personally apologized to me for running a bit behind schedule. Wonderful doctor!
very professional and warm. I was expecting to have to make another appointment, but Dr. Yousefi made sure that she was able to perform the procedure I required right away. what a pleseant surprise (and experience)!
She was excellent. Very friendly and communicated so I understood clearly what was going on. I have already recommended her to my coworker.
The conversation with the doctor was a one to one friendly conversation regarding my derma problem and was met with good diagnosis and prescription was written for it--no time wasted.
I think Dr. Yousefi is very friendly and personable. She makes you feel at ease and always has the answer to your questions. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist!
Very professional, highly recommended...I was in and out in less than 40 mins.
She was very easy to talk to, appeared knowledgeable and competent, and was willing to take the time to answer all questions and address all concerns without making you feel rushed or uncomfortable in any way.
Dr. Yousefi is wonderful. She is friendly, knowledgable, and very considerate.
Dr. Yousefi is very personable. She seems very knowledgeable in her field. I was happy with her recommendations for managing my adult acne.Front office staff was very nice, always a plus!
Very nice clean new office. Enjoyable experience.
Listened to me and was very helpful in suggesting various treatments for me to decide from
Friendly and Professional. Efficient without being pushy. Answered all of my questions politely and fully. Offered helpful advice on sun damage prevention, based on my family history, which was unexpected yet appreciated. Clean facilities, friendly front desk staff. Very good experience.
Dr Marjan Yousefi was very polite,kind and very attentive. She asked questions in a kindly manner and did a very profesional check.
She was very nice and seemed very thorough. I was a little worried that she may push other procedures since she does plastic surgery,but she did not.
Dr. Yousefi is very professional. The facilities are extremely clean.
Dr. Marjan Yousefi was really friendly and professional. She truly was a relief to me, I went in with a bad case of scalp infection and it was so painful and I really had no hope at the time but during our appointment she helped ease my worry and explained my condition in detail and answered all my concerns. After our appointment she prescribed some meds and that same night the cream really helped ease the itchy pain and I actually got a good night's rest! she is excellent and I will be following up with her as well as telling everyone how great she was!
she seemed concerned with the decision that i made about treatment and wanted to know if i was sure that i wanted to follow through with the decision that i made. nurturing and appropriate to the treatment that i was expecting.
Dr. Yousefi was an overall pleasant person to be around. She was capable and understanding in her abilities as a dermatologist.
Excellent Doctor, welcomes questions and very knowledgeable.
She is very nice and very professional. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She answered all of my questions and unlike some I have read about, she is not trying to push expensive products on you. Very glad to have found her.
The doctor conducted herself in a very professional manner. Was very easy to talk to and din not appear to be rushed.
Dr. Yousefi was terrific!
The doctor was very friendly and offered to help me with anything I needed. She said she would be available if I ever had questions or problems. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist!
Her approach was good - she clearly explained to me the issues and recommended me a treatment to adapt the nature of my day job.
