Dr. Diakow is the most wonderful doctor. I would highly recommend her. She is empathetic, knowledgeable, and dependable. She doesn't rush you, she answers all your questions and listens to your concerns. They don't come any better than Dr. Diakow.

I really like Dr. Diakow. She is the 3rd dermatologist I’ve been to over a period of almost ten years and she is by far the best and most caring. I really appreciate how she shows genuine concern for how I’m feeling not just the condition of my face. She was able to create a really effective regimen for me on top of being really nice so I highly recommend Dr. Diakow :)
She needs to slow down, and personalize treatment plans for the patient. I felt I was given a standard skin routine. I would have appreciated more discussion of options for me.
Very friendly and considerate. Highly recommended
Amazing. Loved it.
Great appointment. Informative, pleasant and concise.
Wonderful doctor - so kind and helpful. Thank you Dr. Diakow.
Dr. Diakow is a consummate professional with a very reassuring personal demeanor and approach to her patients. I was there to have a mole removed. She explained the procedure; talked me through it; and provided post-procedure instructions clearly.
Highly recommend! I was called in like minutes after finishing my forms. The office is very modern and clean, pretty chill vibes. Reception was courteous and professional. The doctor was great! Very kind, and seemed to know what she was talking about. Since I am breastfeeding I don’t have very many treatment options, but she still provided me with a few recommendations. We shall see how they go!
Dr. Diakow was extremely nice and kind, she is now my new go to dermatologist.
She was very thorough on the annual exam which I appreciate. Both Dr. Diakow and her office staff were superb.
She was amazing and made me feel comfortable since it was my first time ever at a skin doctor so I didn't know what to expect.
Dr. Diakow has a great bedside manner. She listened to all my concerns and descriptions of symptoms and worked with me to form a treatment plan that I was comfortable with. When my insurance wouldn't cover one of the medications she offered me samples so I could get the same level of treatment she wanted for me. Overall a great experience, I highly recommend!
I believe in Dr Marla that she is the right Dr I chose. Thank you
Paid attention to my issues
Professional - great diagnostician and amazing bedside manner
Best dermatologist I’ve seen!
Dr. Marla is very friendly and professional. She made me feel so comfortable.
Dr.Diakow was amazing and her staff was very polite and friendly!
Dr Diakow was very patient and answered all my questions and concerns. Parking is time consuming but Dr Diakow’s bedside manner is wonderful and makes up for that and her staff are very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends.
Very nice clean office fast very helpful I love it. The staff is awesome The doctor was very caring to my needs
I absolutely loved Dr. Diakow. She was so sweet and I felt like she was a friend because she made me feel so comfortable there. She was very informative and caring. I would highly recommend her.
She was nice but did not offer a full body review and the office had moved and the confirmation nor zocdoc had the new address.
Dr. Diakow really took the time to understand my situation and provide helpful information, fast attention and ease of setting up an appointment!
The doctor was amazing. The only downside was the wait, my appt was 4:20, I arrived 4:05 and was seen at 4:52. Almost an hour wait was ridiculous, but Dr. was great so it made up for it.
I brought my daughter to see Dr. Diakow. She was excellent. She explained everything to her regarding skin care and stressed the importance of wearing sunscreen. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs to see a dermatologist.
Me encanto excellente fue muy agradable la recomiendo.
The visit was incredibly pleasant and everyone in the office was very nice and considerate. I was frustrated when I left because I felt rushed by the doctor. I felt fairly uncomfortable with taking oral medication for my acne, but was told to try it anyway, and as a doctor who's recommended online as more homeopathic, I didn't like that approach. I am a huge fan of Korean skincare, am fairly knowledgeable about it, and have seen vast improvements in my skin as a result. I know it's not a dermatologists job to know every skincare routine on the planet, but the fact that she'd never heard of essence or snail mucin as a main ingredient in products was concerning as skin is her career and essence and snail products have been around for years. Instead of my natural products, she was recommending products I know contain quite a few parabens- also not comforting. Overall she's nice and knows about skin disorders, but can't really speak on skincare products which I just wasn't comfortable with.
She was great. She made me feel at ease.
Dr. Marla Diakow was very courteous and professional. She was very helpful and attentive to my needs. Will recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
She was fast, nice and effective
she was honestly amazing!
Went in for annual skin screen and saw Heather hollandsworth a nurse practitioner. But she was very knowledgeable and knew what she was doing. I would not have noticed she wasn't the dermatologist if I wasn't told in advanced. Overall very prompt and friendly staff as well as check in process. I would definitely return to see this office.
Dr. Diakow was great. I didn’t appreciate the medical assistant that saw me. She made it known that I was late for my appointment which I called the office to let them know but there was no reason for her to mention the time of my appointment. It made me feel like I had to rush my appointment, the dr said she wasn’t even aware that I was late. Front desk was immediate to take my co-payment whatever time I came in.
Dr, Diakow was great!!! She was very knowledgeable and understanding of my situation. She is now my one and only dermatologist who I can trust. Thank you for being soo awesome!
Really nice Doctor and her assistant.
Great, she is very kind as well as her whole team.
Dr. Diakow is truly a one of a kind caring Doctor. She has a fabulous bedside manner and does not rush through the appointment. She makes sure everything was understood and all questions and concerns answered. Highly recommended!!!
Doctor was really thorough and helpful. I recommend.
She is very sweet and knowledgeable. She takes time to explain everything and to also make necessary recommendations. Highly recommend
Very professional, knowledgeable, and answered all my questions. I highly recommend her.
Great experience, made me feel very comfortable and assured. Was seen in a timely manner. Nice office and staff.
She is sweet patient thorough and very understanding. I felt 100% comfortable and I am looking forward to my journey to healthy skincare.
