Sapna Palep, MD was INCREDIBLE. I have been going to dermatologists for months trying to get accurate treatment and diagnosis of my symptoms which started in July of 2018 and she immediately diagnosed me and provided me with treatment. It hasbeen less than 24 hours and I already feel relief. Front desk was quick and helpful, her assistant was kind and effective. I highly recommend this office and absolutely go back.

Had a fantastic experience with Dr. Palep! I had my yearly skin screening, and she gave me great tips and things to keep in mind for my skin health, and regarding my skin type and is experienced in treating darker skintones (she diagnosed some minor issues, causes of redness and dryness that were misdiagnosed by previous doctors who I assume were not experienced with darker skin tones). She prescribed effective and realistic treatments. I also appreciate that everyone here was up front about the prices of treatments. I’m so happy, and highly recommend Dr. Palep!

Dr Sapna Palep is my secret weapon…well now it is no longer a secret! I started seeing Dr Palep when I was 25 years old and ever since then I am comfortable going outside without any makeup. She and her staffare incredibly smart, approachable, and efficient. Dr Palep is very attentive with every patient. She is intelligent and up-to-date with all of the relevant studies and medications. I've recommended numerous friends, colleagues, and family members to her and they are very happy with Dr Palep and their results. We've all noticed that her approach is tailored to each patient, and what stands out is that she understands all skin types. She knows how Asian skin will react to certain approaches and medications, comparable to recommendations to Caucasian or African-American skin types. She does not have a one-method aggressive approach, she understands that the skin needs to takes its time but the results are always miraculous. On a personal level, Dr Palep has boosted my confidence and I receive compliments on my sking, all the time. I highly recommend Dr Sapna Palep!

Seeing Dr Palep was a pleasure. She was able to diagnose me right away. Gave me samples to take with me and recommended very affordable home options. Works via Klara with the pharmacy and it's amazing. This is probably not asimportant but her skin is amazing and I think that is important when seeing a dermatologist! I look forward to a long relationship with Dr Palep...

I felt the appointment was extremely rushed. I did not feel confident she was giving me the care and attention needed. She also gave me too many options and basically asked me to choose, which I think is the job of the doctor. I would not go back.

I visited Dr.Palep for an acne consultation. I had persistent acne for 2-3 years and nothing seemed to suppress my breakouts. Additionally, I had a few marks from prior breakouts. Dr. Palep healed my skin in less than 2 months throughtopical medication and an extraction. It’s a year later and I haven’t had to deal with any annoying breakouts and am so thankful to Dr.Palep. Would highly recommend this to anyone who’s tired of experimenting with their own solutions and ready to seek effective and professional help.
