I really like Dr. Diakow. She is the 3rd dermatologist I’ve been to over a period of almost ten years andshe 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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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.
