She is the sweetest, most caring doctor I have ever met. It was a great experience and was making sure all of my questions were answered and that I was involved in my care. She also has a great hand andwhen she had to put some anesthesia I didn't even feel it! So highly recommended!

Dr. Obayan actually listened to me explain my acne issues and asked follow-up questions to get the full picture. She listened to what did and didn’t work for me in the past, and gave me a treatment plan and follow upappointment. I haven’t begun the treatment yet, but my experience at her office was extremely positive and I’m excited to try what she prescribed and see what happens from there.

She gave me recommendations on what I can do toprevent acne instead of treating it after it is there. I would highly recommend her for her great bedside manner, clear expertise and great team!

Dr. Saya was amazing. Her office was spotless, her staff was incredibly friendly, and I felt very confident that I was in good hands. Dr. Saya answered all my questions without hesitation, walked me through the different treatments as she wascompleting them, and even ran all of the procedures through my insurance before she did anything just to make sure I wouldn't have any surprise expenses. 10/10 would recommend!

Dr. Obayan listened attentively to my concerns, and cared greatly for the anxiety that my concern was eliciting. She performed a simple test at my request without hesitation, which I have met resistance for from other dermatologists. I cannot recommend her enough and feel very safe in her care. Her staff is equally as welcoming, calming and treats patients with dignity.

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.

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.
