Verified Patient Reviews
I've been a patient of Dr. Shahabadi for over 5 years. She is caring and has a wonderful bedside manner. She has an extensive knowledge of dermatology. When my son had ringworm in his follicles (head) and his own pediatrician couldn't find a medication to clear it up 3x, Dr. Shahabadi was able to recommend an alternative medication to cure the problem.
I was impressed with the pleasant staff and medical team.
I have been going to Dr. Shahabadi for several years now, and I highly recommend her to all of my friends. She is professional, caring, and knowledgeable, and everyone in her office couldn't be more hospitable and helpful. I wouldn't dream of going to any other office!
Love Dr Shahabadi! Very knowledgeable and would and have recommended her to my friends and family!
Great appointment. She performed my annual skin exam and re evaluated an issue I had last year and retreated the area. She also may several great recommendations.
Very pleasant! Dr Shahabadi is the best!!!
I was pleased with the doctor's knowledge of my skin condition, however, I was unhappy that she would not write me a prescription for pink eye. I do understand that she is a dermatologist, however, she is a doctor and could have done so right then and there without forcing me to go to Urgent Care for the third time this week. Thanks.
Couldn't wish for a better doc: thorough and competent, warm manner, very clear on issues and treatment, and never rushed. Plus, her partner practice is a talented and supportive plastic/reconstruction surgeon. So it's one-stop shopping when intervention is needed.
Very thorough and efficient. Explains things well.
I was in need of a dermatologist for a rash on my face. I was able to book an appointment quickly. The waiting room is bright, clean and welcoming. The staff were very nice and professional. They had my forms printed off and waiting for me. Check in only took about 5 mins... Copy my id and insurance card and have me read and sign my forms. There was practically no wait to be brought back and to see the doctor. Dr Shahabadi was great. She gave me a RX for topical ointment and a bunch of samples of creams to use. At no point did anyone try and up sell me any products. I would highly recommend her.
This doctor is by far the most amazing and fantastic dermatologist that i have ever known! And let me tell you, i have been to quite a few ones but finally found my guardian acne angel! Lol. She's the best, really! Highly recommened
Dr. Shahabadi is an excellent Dr. Only problem is that I make the appt. with her and every time they seem to think that my appt. is with Gina when I get there.
The doctor was very patient and took her time and was very gentle. She was extremely thorough with the examination and explained in detailed what was going on. She took time to answer all questions and was very pleasant. I highly recommend her.
I thought she was very nice and very professional.
Dr. Shahabadi is wonderful....she is a warm and caring doctor, and I would recommend (and do...) to anyone!
Fantastic. Would recommend to everyone.
I like Dr. Shahabadi very much. She is personable and proficient in what she does.
My visit was very pleasant.
Great Doctor. Appointment went very fast and I got all my questions answered. Thanks!
She is the perfect doctor that I have seen before .
Tried to sell me moisturizer in addition to prescription. But the front desk wasn't too pushy, so I'll go back. I quit seeing my last dermatologist because of immense pressure to purchase non prescription creams (for more than the prescription co-pay).
It was great and will be seeing her again if needed.
I went to check myself for the acne problem, dr. Shabnam is really very pleasant and soft speaking she listened all my problems carefully and gave me the medications (hope to see good results). I found her very knowledgeable and professional.
Everyone in the office was pleasant and helpful. My first time there and I would highly recommend Dr. Shahabadi.....very professional and extremely pleasant. The office seemed to be well run.
Dr. Shahabadi is always very professional, pleasant and informative. I'm very pleased to have found a great dermatologist for both myself and my child.
She was super nice and on time:)
Went smoothly and efficiently. Dr. Shahabadi and the entire staff were professional and friendly.
Fabulous office and staff
Dr. Shahabadi was very pleasant and thorough.
She was worth scouring the internet for an hour researching dermatologist! She was courteous, knowledgeable and analytical with diagnosing my problem. I believe after my first visit, I am finally getting to the crux of my problem which my regular dermatologist of seventeen years could not solve.
Very nice, very professional, and very thorough. I was impressed and will certainly return for future visits. The office is very convenient. Bottom line: my sister is a dermatologist (she lives in another state, so I don't have the luxury of seeing her for regular exams). That said, I could not have asked for a better experience with Dr. Shahabadi. Thank you!
Both staff and doctor were very nice and friendly. Waiting times were brief. Office is clean and nicely decorated.
She took time to listen to my issues and provided the care I needed.
Dr. Shahabadi was very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend her practice.

I really like Dr. Shahabadi. She is efficient, is easy to talk to, and good at what she does.
Thought she was through and thoughtful.
A great doctor with great customer service. Continues to listen to clients.
She is very personable and never forgets a patient. The office is small and checking out took forever, though.
I have been seeing Dr. Shahabadi for almost a year. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She is very caring and makes sure that all my questions are answered. I am so glad that I found Dr. Shababadi and her staff. They go above and beyond to make each visit a great experiience!
Informative and pleasant.
Overall I was happy with this visit. The doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me, but I didn't ask any questions and the prescribed medication was effective.
Fantastic first visit. She has a wonderful personality and demeanor very kind, considerate and open with the patient (me).
SHe was very personable and professional.
Fantastic as always. Highly recommend Dr. Shahabadi!
I came in for a dermatology consultation. I also had some acne concerns that I wanted to discuss. However, on the date of my appointment my breakout was not bad at all. The staff then proceeded to ask me on three separate occasions, different nurses each time, why I was there to be seen? I didn't feel valued as a patient or as if my personal health concerns were important. I was made to feel very uncomfortable and as though I was wasting their time with my appointment.
My visit with Dr, Shahabadi was one of the nicest doctor's visits I have experiences. Dr, Shahabadi put my mind at rest within 2 minutes of her entering the room. Dr, Shahabadi has a manor about her that let me know she had the experience and knowledge to address my issue and resolve them to my satisfaction.
She's very knowledgeable and knows what she's doing, it was a quick checkup-but I can tell I'll have good results from what she recommended me for products
I would have liked her to volunteer more information about skin care without trying to sell the products they have in their office. I would have liked her to suggest or recommend what treatments might benefit me.
Warm and caring doctor. Really spent time with me explaining diagnosis and treatment options. I didn't feel rushed at all.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Shahabadi but it will definately NOT be my last. She was very thorough, asking questions about the rash I have, how long have I had it, does it hurt, etc.. She asked about the other medications I am taking, and have I been using anything on the rash; has it gotten worse, etc. I will be making other appts. with this Dr. in the future.
She knew right away what the issue was and diagnosed it correctly. Trust her completely.
Dr. Shahabadi is an excellent doctor. Her diagnoses are correct. Her manner is professional but friendly.
I would highly recommend Dr. Shahabadi to other friends and colleagues. Dr. Shahabadi listens to all of your concerns and develops an immediate action plan.
I really appreciated Dr Shabnam listening to what I had to say instead of disregarding me which I experienced with another doctor. The staff was very pleasant. I have already passed this doctor's office to someone I know.
Dr. Shahabadi is very business like and professional but still seems to be friendly and with a good sense of humor.
dr. Shahabadi, is very professional and easy to talk to. My daughter had a very minor problem but it was dealt with quickly Dr. shabadi answered all our questions and showed compassion as she completed the procedure in the office.
Getting in to see a specialist can take months. I was able to book this appointment within a 2 week period. The staff was friendly, efficient and very courteous, Dr. Shahabadi was thorough and explanatory regarding my condition. I will be going back for outpatient minor surgery in 2 weeks.
The doctor was very personable and encouraging. My husband and I found her manner to be pleasant and professional.
