She clearly explains each procedure and makes great recommendations regarding treatments beneficial for you. Her office staff is friendly and makes you feel comfortable. They are very professional and very caring. Thank you Dr Said!

Dr. Said is fantastic! I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my dermatologist. In fact since I moved away I still make the drive to her! Professional, the only dermatologist to clear up my skin while also preventing aging.

Dr Said is a very patient focused professional. She listens well and is decisive and clear with her instructions regarding how to best treat a condition.
Dr. Said is very thorough, answers all questions, and has written instructions for home follow up. Don't have to take a lot of notes or try to remember details.
I met with Dr. Said's assistant for followup from surgery. She spent considerable amount of time explaining the after care at home. She also said that I should call the office any time if I felt that the surgical area was not healing properly. Very impressed.
Dr. Said was professional, thorough, and efficient. Followup care by staff was excellent.
Excellent office visit!!! Staff very friendly, prepared and professional. Dr Said was professional, caring and very organized. This is why I would return for future visits.
I like that I was seen and treated promptly. Everyone was nice and professional.
We’ve seen Dr. Said for years. My wife, son, and daughter all go to her. My daughter lives and drives up from San Diego. I can give no better endorsement than that.
Dr. Said is competent and caring. I never feel rushed through an appointment. She truly cares about her patients.
Dr Said is Fantastic...She is the Most wonderful, caring, compassionate, highly skilled doctor ever.
Dr. Said was recommended to me by another medical professional and I'm glad I booked my appointments with her. She is extremely knowledgeable and explains things thoroughly.
Everything was great except the wait before seeing the doctor. Not sure why my appointment was 12:45 pm, when I could have come a half hour later at 1:15 pm, when I was finally called in.
great bedside manner.. very knowledgeable.. professional!
The wait time was long (an hour and 20 minutes) but the staff were all very nice, and very professional. Dr. Said was very nice and thorough. I was pleased with my visit and will continue to see Dr. Said for my dermatological needs.
The only problem is even though I completely filled out the information on this app the front office had no knowledge nor the reason for my visit. Perhaps they need to be notified more promptly or they need to check your notifications more often.
She’s the best. Current on all things in the skin business and very knowledgeable. I trust her 200%
Dr. Said is a wonderful, caring , professional who takes the time to address all of your concerns. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Said is thorough and professional- exactly what you want in skin care.
Dr Said is a very hands on brilliant Dr who truly cares for the well being of her patients. She has always looked out for the best interest of my health and families.
I liked that she got right to the point concerning my son's acne. I also like that she was able to back her reasons up with scientific data.
Love Dr. Said. She has always been spot on with her treatment diagnosis for me. If your looking for someone who is the best in Botox Injections, she is the one you want to go to. She makes you look so natural that people notice a subtle difference but don’t realize it is due to having Botox.
Outstanding service as usual!
I've been seeing this cutting edge dermatologist for years. She found cancer that another Dr. overlooked. Wait times are sometimes long, but she gives you her full attention in the room.
She was very kind and recognized my problem immediately and provided corrective action.
dont let her online pic fool you. No accent what so ever and super sweet

Dr. Said is conscientious, thoughtful, concerned, professional, caring and most important extremely knowledgeable and competent. She has been keeping me skin cancer free for at least five years along with healing several other skin related anomalies.
Dr. Said was amazing and so was her staff. She was smart, personable and easy to talk to. I thought I had a far worse skin condition than I actually had. Wow, that was good news. I learned a lot and I was so relieved!

Dr. Said is an excellent physician and surgeon. She is personable and a joy to visit. I highly recommend her. Earl M
She is insightful, very up to date in her knowledge about skin problems and prevention of them, in addition to training at top schools and years of experience. She hears her patients and advises us well. She will help with your skin care and routines whether it be a condition or to help you to look your best. She will tell you your options but does not push. She has some over the counter products in her office for convenience in purchasing which helps if time is important to you. Her office staff is prompt and courteous.
Dr. Said actually CARES about her patients --- not just about their skin health but overall health too. She is very personable and caring. Plus she is very careful with her procedures and makes them virtually PAINLESS!
Would recommend Dr Said to anyone in need of a dermatologist!
Very thorough (although she talks fast!) Only disappointment was calling the office later. The staff member abruptly ended the phone call mid-sentence saying , "I have to let you go. I have to help the doctor now." I totally understand that, but she should have offered to call back or asked me to call back as she had not answered my question.
Very pleasant and comfortable doctor. I trust her treatment.
It was a great experience with staff and doctor.
Excellent Very thorough. Well informed and pleasant
She's the only dermatologist I will go to, awesome.

Felt I was in very capable hands!!!
