My visit was great. No time wasted, he is very professional and seems to know what he's doing, but that was my first time and I'm yet to know how much he can help. Too early to comment on treatment now.

Dr. Riahi has been my doctor for the past two years and he is FANTASTIC! I just moved to California 6 months ago and while traveling home for the Holidays, I made sure to make an appointment for a follow-up toget my refills. He is very professional, listens very carefully and his easy to follow regiment has slowed down my skin's aging process tremendously. I will be back year after year as he is the only doctor I trust! Thanks Dr. Riahi!!!!!

Dr. Riahi was very detail oriented, and not only dove in to the specifics of my treatment but educated me in a very brief, easy to understand and professional manner. He also had the uncanny ability to discern that I hadsome scientific knowledge and aptitude so he provided an even more in depth deep dive when explaining my condition in a very casual manner. I never felt like the patient, but a valued client and nothing less. The best doctor I have ever seen. Hands down.

Best dermatologist in town! I have never seen any Doctor so far who can take time and explain everything. Dr Ryan genuinely cares and takes time to sit with you and make you understand. He wasn't rushing like most doctors do.He took his time, made me feel comfortable, and was very thorough. Great bedside manner. The staff are excellent. The doctor's office was neat and clean. very short waiting time. I enjoyed my visit. I want to refer this doctor to everyone who wants best treatment.

Once I walked in the clinic, there was no wait at all. Granted, there was no one there during the day. But, I did not like how I was spoken to me. I understood that he was very informative, and educational,but he did not ask for my concerns of what I wanted. The time I saw him was very short, and seemed rush. Which I’m not sure why I was being rushed, knowing that I was literally the only patient there.
