Patients pay exorbitant sums to medical insurance companies. However, the end product of “having insurance” often results in a rushed five-minute visit to the dermatologist. Dr. Arora is committed to providing individualized and compassionate care. He will to spend as much time as needed getting know his patients, their needs, their expectations and establish the correct diagnosis and derive a comprehensive treatment plan. In addition, patient education and close follow up are just as important as the treatment itself. For this reason, he is out of network for insurances.

Navin removed a mole for me, and I wet healed it religiously changing the bandage twice per day and it left a disgusting scar due to his unsightly butchering of my back. If you just need something removed and you don't care how you look then this is your guy.

Dr. Arora was great and very informative, and took the time to answer any questions I had. I visited for an annual skin screening (first time I ever had one!), and had 2 red bumps on my skin that I wantedremoved for vanity purposes. He quickly removed them during my appointment and it didn't hurt at all. Also, he was able to recommend a great lotion cream for my dry/bump skin. I would recommend Dr. Arora and will visit again.

Dr. Arora is a wonderful physician who makes his patients feel like a priority. He listens and thoroughly explains treatment options to help you make informed decisions. All prescriptions are filled through a very low-cost delivery servicethat can bring medications straight to your home or office. I will continue to see Dr. Arora for treatment and would recommend him to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

At first, I was bothered by the fact that I had to wait about an hour for Dr. Arora to see me, but he was so apologetic and professional that I soon forgot my angst. Further, he handled everything I neededin this appointment (including my annual skin exam) in a timely, efficient manner while still managing to keep a friendly demeanor. I will go back to this doctor for future medical skin care. He's worth the wait!
