Liked the doctor. Did not like the front desk. They didnt know a thing about billing and how much a procedure would cost. Rude and short. I needed a mole removal and cant take a day off of work and apparentlythey only accept those procedures on Tuesday mornings. Not flexible. Doc was nice, but I bought the recommended dandruff shampoo that she told me she doesnt make money off of her patients. Come to find when I researched at home that its half the price at a near by CVS and I cant return it.

Avoid this doctor. She was angry that I decided not to participate in a clinical study and was hostile and unprofessional during my exam. I’ve never posted any on-line reviews of anything until today. But this doctor’s demeanor and interactionwith me was offensive and I wouldn’t want anyone else subject to the same.

Dr Agha is the best! She truly cares about her patients and wants them to get better. I suffer from hyperhydrosis and she was the only derm that fought with insurance in order to get my procedure covered while other derms did not want to bother.

I felt super rushed by her and felt she wasn't addressing my root problems, but rather pushing on her services that she offers at her clinic. She didn't listen to me or made me feel heard. She spoke super fast andran out the door. I left feeling more confused than I came.

I have been a patient here for over 2 years and I will never go back!! First of all the front desk personnel are very unprofessional! I have been hung up on and rudely talked to. When I ask to speakto the doctor the say she will call back IF she has time... Huh??? As for the physician she is in and out in 5 minuets, she has a PA student that I see more then I see her!! I am not paying for a student!!!!!!

Terrible service. Had to wait 3 weeks for my labs for important tests and no call from dr regarding the delay or results. Two visits and still no overall body mole Check was told this would happen on second visit butdid not. She rushes through visit as she is more interested in billing than treating concerns

The most unprofessional experience in a medical facility I have ever encountered. I made an appointment with her for itchy scalp. My regular doctor informed me that it was due to some skin irritant and needed to see a specialist. Afterbeing brought in by the assistance of whom was very pleasant and explaining to her my situation the doctor came in and asked me why I was there cut me off almost immediately and told me to lean my head over followed by five seconds of pushing four pieces of hair away and telling me nothing was wrong and I didn't have lice which if she had to listened to me, I told her I knew I did not have. Considering her in adequate inspection I questioned the diagnosis she concluded. I told her well you barely even looked and she goes I did look which followed by arguing where she told me to lean my head over again and hold my hair sharply while looking through it this time. She very aggressively look through my hair and again told me that nothing was wrong and there was nothing there. Since I knew there was a bump and redness on the side of my head and she didn't care to ask me I pointed it out and she took A picture of it and told me she couldn't tell what it was because it was a scratch which it clearly was not, it was a bump. Followed by her telling me that she doesn't go to my job and question me and I responded by informing her this is my body not store purchase, and if she properly examined me I wouldn't have so many questions. (Extraordinary Ignorance) To keep her unbelievable behavior up she told me she was prescribing me a lotion for skin mites....Wait...."You just told me nothing was wrong, now I getting a prescription?" She talked in circles insulting me as she explained I can take the prescription or I can go. I told her just give me the prescription so we can both go on with our day. When she left the nurse apologize for her unprofessional behavior and treatment of me and I told her it was unbelievable and I couldn't process what just happened yet. Hours after leaving I receive a phone call from her office telling me that since I told her nurse that I was not happy with the way she treated me that she didn't feel comfortable giving me a prescription and she would not be providing any script for my medical conditions. I'm in the process of reporting her to multiple medical associations and suggest anyone who would like an actual doctor and for that actual doctor to treat you like you matter more than the next person in line this is not the doctor to go to. Oh and she still billed me.

While Dr. Agha was kind enough to push my appointment time back due to unexpected heavy traffic, either she did not actually look at my chart before coming in to see me or my chart was not initially filled out correctly.Due to my improper intake or the failure to look at my chart, I was not treated properly. I have moderate back acne and her solution was to give me a weeks worth of topical samples. This is because according to her, my [facial] acne was due to stress and she did not acknowledge my back acne, in any way, at all. I was very disappointed because she was so attentive during my first visit and her nurse was taking notes the entire time.

Would you recommend the professional who treated you? i would say a big no no for laser treatment the doctor burnt my face she told me to visit so that she can check about the burns. she also mentioned that idint have to pay that day because it was only a follow up, and i told her to change my pharmacy. 2 months later i get a bill for the follow up and change in pharmacy is considered as prescription.

It was great! I only waited 5 minutes to be seen and I've been to derms where their PA did all the talking and prescribing but Dr. Agha came in and made sure I thouroughly understood all the meds she wasprescribing. Was in an out under 30 mins! I also booked my appointment 3 days before I came in so I was seen quickly.
