She is very thorough and knowledgeable. I like that she doesn’t try to sell you products or services. She has removed two moles that have healed very nicely and helped me with my adult acne. My skin is finally clear andsmooth!! I have had nothing but excellent service and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist in Orange County.

Dr. Said is very thorough and proactive in prevention of skin cancer. She has found things on my body that would have gone unnoticed for many years (i.e., a small freckle on the top of my ear that was basal cellcarcinoma, a spot on the back of my calf that did not look unusual to me). She encourages use of sunscreen every day and recommends that her patients do a Carac treatment during the winter months. My skin has never looked better since coming to her!

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.
