Dr Said was very good and helped me understand what I was needing as a treatment and kept me informed. WhenI had a question before my follow up appointment she took the time to return my call and let me know what to do next. I would highly recommend Dr. Said!

Doctor Said was very knowledgeable about my specific issue and helped steer me in the right direction to get to theroot cause of my problem. I was most impressed that she wasnt interested in selling me services and products that weren't a solution to my problem and gave me the best advice I've heard so far. I would recommend her to others.

Dr. Said is an amazing dermatologist. She knows her medicine! I see her bedside manner is only 4 stars, I think her bedside manner is amazing, she’s attentive and listens to her patients throughly, if you need someone to tell you how amazing you are as a patient I think you need to re-evaluate what a dermatologists roll is. She only has 3 stars for wait time. Yes you have to wait in her office sometimes 5 minutes sometimes 60 minutes but I know when I go in she is going to take all the time she needs with me to solve my issues. Also she always fits in patients who have a problem that needs immediate attention. Other doctors say they have an opening in 2 months, we all know that is ridiculous! I would rather wait in her office knowing that I will get the time and medical attention I need.

I’m a huge fan of Dr. Said! I always feel well taking care of when I’m there, and she never pushes me to do any unnecessary procedures, which I’ve found annoying when seeing other dermatologists. I’m in my mid-fifties, and my goal is not to look younger or in any way fake, I just want to look healthier and better! I trust Dr. Said to help me achieve that and have been seeing her for years.
