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.

Dr. N is a wonderful, knowledgable, personable doctor. She is caring and comforting when the diagnosis is difficult to hear and her follow up is excellent. She has an easy touch when conducting procedures and doesn't scare you when discussing the possibilities of the diagnosis. i trust her and know she will always be straight with me. A wonderful young doctor with a great future.

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.

I liked Dr. Nazarian, she was friendly and knowledgeable (if a little in rush to get in and out), however the woman I dealt with at the front desk (Gloria) was brusque, uncaring and impatient, giving me a judgemental lecture and zero compassion when my referral had not been received (no fault of my own). I sorted it out with my PCP but had Dr. Nazarian not been so smart, professional and kind I would not want to return.

Dr. Nazarian was friendly and knowledgeable, but I kind of felt rushed and as if she prescribed things without much explanation. I'm sure she was running late (I waited quite a bit for this short appointment) because some of my other concerns were brushed aside for the next appointment. Also, be aware that she may "prescribe" the Schweiger dermatology own brand products.

I had a great appointment with Dr. Nazarian. She answer all my questions, some before I even asked. She took her time with me. Very professional but warm. I was interested in some cosmetic procedures and she explained them very well and did not push to have them done. Said it was up to me. I would highly recommend her.

Everyone at Schweiger Dermatology was very pleasant and I did not wait long at all. I met with Dr. Nazarian. Her beside manner was good, she definitely seemed more concerned than my past doctor, and she came up with a plan that we will follow for 3 months and reassess. Too early to give 5 stars, but I give her and her office 4 stars for a first impression.
