I felt so comfortable at this office. Not only is Dr. Obayan friendly and super personable, her staff is as well. I felt as though a great treatment plan came from my visit as well as two surprise mole removals thatwere covered under my insurance. I am already looking forward to my next visit. Do yourself a favor and give this office a chance.

I wound up in Dr. Obayan’s office after my new primary care physician recommended I have a specialist take a look at a suspicous mole found during a check up. Needless to say I arrived feeling worried, stressed and incredibly uneasy.I’d read all of the fabulous reviews about Dr. Obayan yet she still exceeded my expectations. She was attentive, knowledgeable, thorough, kind and comforting. I left her office feeling relieved and assured that everything was fine. I will definitely be back for annual skin checks! Go see Dr. Obayan! You won’t regret it.

It was excellent. I appreciate how the doctor was able to address issues specific to Africisn-Americans when others said nothing can be done. Also liked how doctor said I should buy a certain product on-line rather than through a prescription. Very pleased.

I had developed an odd red/purple/brown pattern on my palms, and decided it was probably time to finally strike "get a skin check up" off my to do list. I was nervous, since I'm a bit self conscious about how Ilook, so I was a bit on edge when I got to the appointment. The assistant at the desk was very kind, and helped get me through the paperwork without a problem. No sooner was I done then the nurse was guiding me to the exam room. A few quick questions, a change into a patient gown, and it was time for the actual exam. Dr. Obayan entered with a big smile and a warm greeting, removing whatever lingering fear I had. She listened to what concerns I had, and took everything seriously. She was very knowledgeable, and was keen on judging things relative to the rest of my skin. She wasn't just ticking symptoms off on a check list and spitting out a diagnosis, and trust me I've dealt with doctors of that caliber before. When she eventually decided I would likely need a biopsy on my hand, I was initially worried. I work with my hands, so I knew this would hurt me at work. However, those concerns were also taken to heart. We figured out a schedule and plan that fit my situation, and the fact Dr. Obayan was so flexible really struck me. I'm used to working around a doctor, not this. Obviously, I thought highly of Dr. Obayan and her staff. But, if everything so far didn't convince you to seek her out for your dermatologist needs, perhaps this will. On her way out, she complemented my socks. And as kind the compliment was, the surprising part was that she saw them. I had taken them off, put them half in my shoe, and slid them under a seat in the far corner of the room away from the door. She was free to leave, her job was done, yet even then she was still observant enough to notice a small detail like that. Considering how important a doctors skill at observation is in dermatology, hopefully this moment helps show Dr. Obayan has the skills needed for her trade. I'd suggest her to anyone based on this first impression.

After 3 bad visits with other dermatologists, Dr. Obayan was wonderful. I feel confident that she will finally help me find out what going wrong with my skin.
