Verified Patient Reviews
Friendly and professional doctor, very little wait time
The doctor was very personable and thorough.
I went into Dr. Gharsri's office to get a mole removed my office visit was quick, painless and efficient.
He's one of the best. Very easy to talk to, professional, and meticulous. I've found my new dermatologist!
Very nice office, nice staff, doctor was great. Would definitely return. Easy to make appointment as well.
Dr. Pedram Ghasri was very professional; did not rush his examination; and rendered an easy to understand medical opinion. He was quite willing to discuss any questions that I had and offered helpful treatment advice. All & all a good experience.
The visit was great. My first impression was good because the front office lady was nice and the room was pretty. The doctor was very professional and gave me his full attention. The only thing I'll never understand is why places take you out of the comfortable waiting room and bring you to the patient room to have you wait there alone. You put your phone and book away because you think the doctor is coming right away and then wait and wait... It wasn't dreadfully long and the doctor did apologize when he got in, but it was at least 5 songs long and the music was horrible. But all was forgotten when I got done exactly what I came to take care of.
Dr. Pedram Ghasri is the best! I had some scar tissue from a pimple I popped and he was so kind and efficient at treating it. He gently gave me a small cortisone injection to help it heal and told me to come back if it didn't get better within the next 10 days. It literally went away the next morning and I have my confidence back! He also gave me a very good sample of acne medication to help it heal. Dr. Ghasri knows what he is doing and doesn't waste time! So thankful!
It was ok. However I was told at checkin that I wasn't in the system nor was my appt. and I had to fill out everything all over again.
Excellent! I highly recommend visiting Castle Dermatology. They are kind, caring, personable, respectful, trustworthy and efficient. Very professional and passionate about what they do-- they're everything you'd want in a doctor!
Fastest checkin time I've ever experienced. Dr. Ghasri is incredibly gentle and kind. The only challenge I had was when he took a skin biopsy sample. The numbing gel didn't work right away so I felt some pain. He was very sympathetic and apologetic and waited a little longer.
It was quick, nice, and very professional!
Very gentle and kind demeanor. Answered all questions in depth. Did not feel rushed at all.
He was great! Definitely recommend him
Dr. Ghasri is great! Over the years, I have seen many different dermatologists for the same issues (mild acne on face, chest, and back), and none were able to prescribe me with medication that worked. Through those dermatologists, I tried regimen after regimen, spent lots on prescriptions that didn't work, and was getting very frustrated. I went in to see Dr. Ghasri, and immediately he knew what to prescribe. Low and behold it worked!!! My face, chest, and back are CLEAR! No acne. Maybe some small blackheads here, and there, but the regimen Dr. Ghasri prescribed works perfectly for my skin. Very VERY happy! He's really nice and remembers you and the things you have going on in your life, which makes the experience very personalized. He's great. I definitely recommend him. My husband went to see him about a lump under the skin. Dr. Ghasri knew exactly what to do, and the lump went away within a week. My husband really liked him as well.
He's terrific! Great experience!
I'd like to start off by saying that I've been to dermatologists in Beverly Hills, Brentwood, West Hills-- all over Los Angeles and I can say Dr. Pedram Ghasri at Castle Dermatology in Tarzana is by far the best experience I've had. His staff is friendly and the wait time was non existent. Dr. Ghasri painlessly froze off multiple moles and dark spots in minutes! He also got rid of unattractive red veins around my nose and cheeks. All under an hour! Dr. Ghasri is efficient but not once did I feel rushed. He is very attentive, kind, and super professional. Thank you Dr. Ghasri! 100% recommend!
He was very thorough and took the time necessary for me to feel comfortable that I got the answers I needed. Will be going back to Dr. Ghasri for sure.
I've had a few mediocre experiences with dermatologists in the past, but I am so happy to have finally found my new dermatologist. The whole experience was very pleasant, starting with a friendly and efficient check-in by the receptionists with little wait time. Dr. Ghasri remained attentive throughout the entire visit, and made me feel very comfortable with his calm and kind demeanor. I will definitely be coming back, and will be gladly referring my family to him for their annual skin checks.
My visit with Dr Pedram Ghasri yesterday was great! He is so knowledgable and thorough and had a very welcoming personality. It was my first time seeing him, I've seen the other Dr Ghasri before, and I was so impressed!! I will definitely be back for my follow up in a few weeks. Thanks.
Usually if a person is more than 15 minutes late a doctor won't see you, yet, when the doctor is 30 minutes late to his appointment? It's quite unprofessional. I don't recommend this office. I have a very busy schedule and this office made me over an hour late, also the diagnosis wasn't conclusive, so, I have pretty indifferent feelings about this office and probably won't be going back.
Super friendly and knowledgeable. Looking forward to my next appointment with him!
I've been looking for a great dermatologist, and I'm glad I found Dr. Pedram Ghasri! I will start referring my friends and family to him. Very nice office too!
The only negative is that he is younger than me but I guess I can't hold that against him. He was very friendly and professional. He explained everything and alleviated my fears over a couple of minor skin ailments. I recommend.
Doctor was great explained and answered all my questions. Took his time to answer my questions. Office very clean, staff very friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Ghasri.
