While the Doctor did not spend a lengthy period of time with me, I did not feel like she missed anything, or that I was "short-changed" in any way. She was professional, obviously well versed in her expertise, and charming. Would highly recommend her.

I was referred to Dr. Nazarian by my children's pediatric dermatologist. She is professional and thorough, and she answered all of my questions in an easy-to-understand fashion. It was an efficient and quick visit despite the wait to get into the exam room, and I will definitely return. Side note: water, twizzlers, and samples of skin products in the waiting room made the wait fine, fyi.

Dr. Nazarian is absolutely amazing. I wish she could be my primary care physician! She is knowledgeable and astoundingly kind. We had a stimulating conversation in which she educated me regarding the purpose of my visit. She is great at what she does. There's no questions there. But I can't say this enough: she is a wonderful person. Dr. Nazarian will set you at ease, and treat you with warmth and respect.

Dr. Nazarian is terrific -- very warm and personable and very clear in her explanations. I was genuinely impressed. Her staff, both medical and office, are lovely -- and competent! -- and the whole office is up-to-date in using technology in a helpful, efficient way (e.g. online forms that I filled out ahead of time, iCal/Outlook calendar appointments, e-mail reminders, use of iPad for medical notes, etc.). And it's a beautiful environment -- light, bright, clean, tastefully decorated.

This was my first time using ZocDoc and I have to say I am very, very ecstatic with the services Dr. Nazarian provided. I had a cyst smack middle on my head (it was removed prior but came back) Dr. Nazaraian was extremely professional and gave me detail step-by-step procedure of what needed to be done to have it removed. She was very caring and always made sure that I was comfortable. The staff at the practice are also amazing!! From her funny assistant Dante to the humorous Jessica at the front desk! Should anything else ever happen on my skin that needs a dermatologist to look at, her practice will be the first place I go to.

Dr. Nazarian was very warm and friendly, I was seen right away. But the appointment was extremely fast and felt a little rushed. She came in the room while the assistant was still taking down my information and medical history. She didn't stop to read that information I had already given or give me time to fully explain my symptoms or history before launching into a treatment plan. This treatment plan was based around Schweiger dermatology own-brand products, which I subsequently felt pressured to buy, as I was not given any advice about alternatives.

Everyone was friendly and courteous. I especially like the fact that Dr. Nazarian greeted me and introduced herself. This was very important to me because I've had doctors come into the room and get straight to work without introducing themselves (very sad!). It was easy talking to her about my concerns which she addressed very well. The waiting time was very short so I was glad for that. Appointments like these help to make my day. We need more doctors like her!!

She kept me waiting for about half an hour. More importantly, once she arrived, it seemed she was disinterested in explaining the remedies to my situation, as it didn't seem like a major disorder. She was also very dismissive of a different specialist I'd consulted and the attitude seemed unprofessional. I wasn't happy with the experience and felt like I wasted my time and money with the appointment.

After my second visit, I will likely be switching to another practice. Even for a relatively early appointment time, the wait was upwards of 30 min just to see the doctor (besides the PA or nurse). Not only that, but the actual appointment time was like three minutes! And the concerns that the doctor said we'd check out were brushed off again, saying that this visit was booked just as a follow up and wouldn't include them. Not happy.

This was the fastest doctors appointment I've ever had and not in a good way. I had a 5:50pm appt on a week day, I got there early and there was around 5-6 people still waiting to be seen. I'm not sure why this office does 10 minute appt blocks but that's what it seemed like and it's a bad idea. I got taken in about 10 mins late just to be seen for maybe 10 minutes. The whole appt was super rushed, I had a few issues I wanted to discuss with Dr. Nazarian and although she was nice, I didn't feel like she was listening to anything I really said, the skin check was rushed and didn't seem thorough, the male MA stayed in the corner of the room even when I flipped my gown around for her, she didn't give me enough information on two things I had asked about including a prescription. Not sure I would recommend this office to be honest.
