Verified Patient Reviews
Love the doctor, but not the wait. Waited 20 minutes to see the doctor, then waited another 20-30 minutes for the dispensary services in the office (I suppose that was still less time than driving to the pharmacy and waiting there). All staff were very friendly and apologetic for the wait.
What a pleasure to be seen by a doctor who was so relaxed yet professional, we did not wait any remarkable time either in the waiting room and the exam room, her staff was pleasant and professional, she deserves her 5 stars, and her office staff deserve the same.
Sara Gaspard really was such a nice change, she is approachable, she treated what needed to be treated but didn't try to push unnecessary treatment, really i would give her office staff and her all 5 stars, great job!
She's wonderful! Highly recommened!
Dr. Gaspard was lovely. Knowledgeable. Helpful. Informative. Efficient.
Very Sweet Woman. Professtional. Caring. Informative.
Outstanding, knowledgeable, professional, skilled.
So relieved to find Dr Gasparilla and her excellent staff. Her nurse (Sochi) is amazingly on top of things and the staff new exactly what to do about my insurance situation, and told me exactly what would get picked up by insurance and what would not, and what I can do to ensure everything went through on my end. Can't wait to go back! They also all have the most beautiful skin I've ever seen, so I know I'm definitely in the best place possible.
I very much appreciated her candor. She kind, direct and knowledgeable. I would definitely see her again.
I would highly recommend this practice, very organized, professional and friendly.
The best experience I've ever had with any MD.
The doctor was thorough with my exam and took time to listen to my other concerns. The cosmetic consultant was very thorough with explaining options, pricing, etc.
The visit was quick and painless! Quickly assessed the situation, but not in a manner that made me feel rushed. Rather than make me feel like I was simply "a number," Dr. Gaspard efficiently and competently took her time and prescribed a solution.
Dr. Gaspard was very pleasant and very professional. She answered all my questions thoroughly and without rushing me. I will definitely come back!

She is wonderfully informative, and personable. I highly recommend her!
She was wonderful, very professional!!
I did not have to wait at all I was taken to a room right away. The Dr. came in very quickly. She did a procedure and was out of the room before I could ask more questions. Would I go back? No because she did not take the time to listen to me.
Best Dermatologist I've EVER seen!
Excellent physician. Great personality and takes care of your issues!
Comfortable to talk to, knowledgeable, friendly
she is very personable, I like her and I am excited that I have a new dermatologist that I think will be the right fit for me.
Dr. Gaspard is incredibly friendly and understanding. She addresses all of your concerns and explains procedures in a way everyone can understand.
Understood need to wait, as I was last appointment in day.
Professional, knowledgeable and listened to what I had to say. She was also very helpful with medicines I need, trying to defray costs for me since I have no insurance and am paying directly myself. Thank you!
very nice and attentive doctor! took care of my concern right away!
She made me feel right at home. I would definitely choose her as my primary dermatologist.
It was a pleasant experience. I was in for mole removal; Dr. Gaspard explained the kind of mole or skin condition and gave the risk or (no risk) of leaving the moles untouched. She left it to the patient to decide. She was sensitive to the patient's wish and anxiety and monitors patient's feeling of pain and discomfort. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes.
Dr Gaspard is the best! I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dermatologist!
She is fantastic! The best MD appointment I think I've ever had. I would highly recommend her and the staff at Comprehensive Dermatology Center of Pasadena to everyone.
Very nice, very straight-forward. Answered all of my questions.
I was in and out of there in less than 20 minutes, including completion of new patient forms. She told me what expect before proceeding with the minor surgical procedure (mole removal). Now that's something I have NEVER experienced in my own experiences in other physicians' offices!
Dr. Gaspard has a very warm "bedside manner" that made me and my son feel comfortable talking with her. She took time and really listened. She didn't appear rushed or in a hurry and answered all of our questions in a straightforward way. We would definitely recommend her based on our first visit.
I am so impressed with not only Dr. Gaspard but the entire office!! I am so used to waiting so long when I get to a doctors office even with appointments that it gets very frustrating. Her office had me roomed and the doctor came in to see me before I could even finish filling out all the paperwork!! I was also very pleased with the cleanliness and professional atmosphere of the office and all the staff. As a nurse I look for any signs that a medical office may be unclean or unprofessional and I was extremely amazed at everything!! Highly, HIGHLY recommended!!!!
She was one the most personable doctors have ever had. She was very gentle with me because I hate needles. The procedure was fast and from what other people have told me when I got home that she is very talented. I would insist that anyone I know who is going to a Dermatologist see Dr. Gaspard. I think she is as gracious and kind as she is beautiful.
I see Sara on a regular basis now. She may have saved my life the first time; I had a malignant melanoma on my arm, which my primary doctor had told me not to worry about; she peeked, shrieked, immediately biopsied it, and I wound up having surgery for it, hopefully in time. (Actually I had another one, not as bad, that I wasn't even aware of). She was trying to get in touch with me about the pathology results for the biopsy, and there was a temporary problem with my answering machine, so she was very concerned, and was actually planning to drive out to my house if I hadn't show up for the next appointment! That's how concerned she was, and she had just met me. She's always finding suspicious or pre-cancerous growths on me, and cutting them off; for me, it's Gaspard's House of Pain, but I'd really like to avoid more malignant tumors and metastatic cancer if I can, so I keep going back. I'm also getting some laser treatments from her. I find her pleasant, with a good sense of humor; very competent, very concerned, and I always get complete and straight answers from her. so I give her my highest recommendation.
She really took her time with us. Great Dr.
There was a screw up between zocdoc and the office on scheduling... When we got there the office was closed, but she saw us anyway.
Excellent experience in every way.
Excellent experience, I'm so happy to have found Dr Gaspard and have her help me treat me rosacia.
Dr. Gaspard was knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. She was kind and patient with her detailed explanations and took the time to answer all of my questions. I feel fortunate to have found her.
Very professional and knowledgeable!
thorough, helpful, patient, extremely comforting during injections!['p=-
Dr. Gaspard was fantastic-I took my 13 year old in for some acne concerns and she spoke directly to my daughter, made sure she understood everything and took great care and time with her. Fantastic!
I think she could work abit on a little "get to know you" conversation on a first visit. She was right down to business which was fine, just too efficient.
