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.

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 ofmy problem. My skin is practically back to normal after only a month of the visit. Very professional, clean, and kind.

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 remedyI was using for fungal infection, (althlete's foot,) was what she recommends. Nice, calm office and very pleasant and attentive office staff. Highly recommend.

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 doA,B and C to solve it". I am seeing her again in a couple of weeks!

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 havealready 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.

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 shegot 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 spotson 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.

She was very flexible, efficient, and approachable. Doctor Chaudhari seems very knowledgable, even though I didn't need to ask a ton of questions to figure that out. She was very friendly, engaging, and listens to her patients' preferencesfor treatment. Before scheduling the appointment I was concerned about finding a good doctor who was knowledgeable about treating African American skin. it was my first visit and I'd definitely return for future dermatological needs.
