Verified Patient Reviews
I met Dr. Chaudhari for the first time yesterday. She is very warm and personable, putting me at ease immediately. She's also very professional and knowledgeable, and didn't try to sell me any products. She told me that the home remedy I was using for fungal infection, (althlete's foot,) was what she recommends. Nice, calm office and very pleasant and attentive office staff. Highly recommend.
Wonderful team and doctor! Felt like all of my concerns were thoroughly addressed with full transparency. In and out of the office quickly. Will definitely be back!
Paru Chaudhari is the best and I loved everything about the visit! I went straight in with no wait time and she took her time listening to me, asking me in depth questions to really get to the root cause of my problem. My skin is practically back to normal after only a month of the visit. Very professional, clean, and kind.
Dr. Chaudhari was really thorough. She took her time explaining things and answering my questions. After being bounced from doctor to doctor, without any helpful info, it was really nice to hear"you have this problem and we are going to do A,B and C to solve it". I am seeing her again in a couple of weeks!
Exceptional experience. Knowledgeable. Great bedside manner. Efficient but never rushed. Polite and effective office staff.
Dr. Chaudari's patiently explained, answered questions, and had a clear treatment plan at my office visit. Her expertise in inflammatory conditions was quite evident, and I felt reassured. Office staff was friendly and I was seen almost immediately. Recommended.
My appointment felt incredibly rushed and the exam room lacked privacy from the street. This made me incredibly uncomfortable in a situation that your body is exposed for inspection.
Dr. Chaudhuri is very knowledgeable and straightforward. She took care of my immediate needs and scheduled a follow-up visit.
Great, friendly doctor. Highly recommend
Dr. Chaudhari was fantastic! I appreciate a doctor who takes their time/doesn't rush you, talks to you like a human and explains their thought process. Also, it was an end of day appointment and I was in right on time. Finally found a great dermo in the Bay Area!
Was seen earlier than my appointment! Great listener, and great at explaining things in a thorough, understandable way. Had a heart experience!
Dr Chaudhari is fantastic. I was visiting for an annual skin cancer screening and it was my first time visiting her as I'm new to the city. She was so friendly and helpful. I felt so comfortable with her and have already passed her name on to a few of my friends. It's rare to walk away from a doctor and think of it as a really enjoyable experience - but that was mine with Dr. Chaudhari.
Helpful - professional - listened well -
Attentive, good communicator. Awkward talking about payment like most doctors, but everything else was clear, quick, and easy.
She listened to my concerns and didn't try to sell me products I don't need.
She was great - very warm and friendly and genuinely cared about my issues.
I've visited a few different dermatologists in the city and would rate this one at the top. I was seen immediately and everyone was professional and friendly. Dr. Chaudhari took time to make sure all my concerns were discussed and she got to know my history. I've already recommended a coworker.
Dr. Chaudhari was incredibly nice and addressed each and every one of my concerns. I had an overall skin check (I've had moles removed in the past) and then asked her about some breakouts I've been having along with sun/age spots on my face. She was very easy to talk to and made me feel right at ease. The office staff were very nice as well, I only waited maybe 10 minutes max before my name was called. Overall it was a great experience and I'd definitely recommend Dr. Chaudhari for anyone looking for an excellent dermatologist in the Bay Area.
Great practice and very helpful advice. Will definitely go back.

Dr Chaudhari was very patient and listened to everything I had to say about my history and my present condition.
