We have been seeing Dr. Shahabadi for quite a while off and on and really like her very much. She's very sweet and interested in your overall well-being. She spent plenty of time with me and was not in a hurryto leave the room, as many doctors do. I always have a lot of questions and she answered them patiently as I was deciding which treatment to pursue. I also really like the staff there who are all very nice and very competent. It's completely unusual these days when the whole office and staff are on the ball and very nice and this office has it all. In fact, when that happens at other offices, I don't go back. There are plenty of doctors in Northern VA so no since in putting up with that. Dr. Shahabadi and her staff are highly skilled, put you first and are organized. You will be pleased if you visit!

Dr. Shahabadi is always very nice, although it’s apparent that there is very little time allocated to appointments so if you have a few things to discuss (even if noted in your appointment ahead of time) you may not be giventime to get to all of them, and she may not be able to thoroughly assess your concerns.

She was nice as always, but I didn't get the medicine/pads for toe that she said I would get. Instead, her assistant came in to give me an upsell (brochure). I think it is not appropriate to try and sell meon a cosmetic procedure when I am there for a dermatology visit. Also, the place on my toe does not seem to be fully resolved.

Parking was very crowded, get there 15 minutes early just to find parking. Dr. Shabnam was great! Lots of smiles, big on personality, and didn't make my concerns feel silly. Visit was quick and to the point, and prescription was onthe way to my pharmacist before I had even left the room. I will definitely be back.

She was very pleasant, straight forward and to the point. Extremely informative, just what I needed. It was my first derm. appointment and Im glad I was able to see her as another woman of color who understands the importance ofskin care and skin screenings no matter the percentage of melanin one contains. I'll continue to see her for my yearly screenings.

Dr. Shahabadi and her nurse were great. The only negative thing about this practice is the front desk staff. Why would they take my co payment and made me fill out forms to then tell me they did not have areferral that was sent to them 2 weeks prior to the appointment? I was told I wouldn't be seen without a referral.

I was apprehensive about my visit because of Google reviews. But I didn't encounter anything negative about the experience. As soon as I got in (10 min early) I was asked to see papers. Filled em out, and after some questionswas in the waiting room! Wonderful assistant asked some questions, and let me know we could get that I wanted to do done right away. Met Dr. Shahabadi and she was pleasant, informative, not too chatty but not rude either. And got her work done! I don't have a bad thing to say! Whole experience took just about an hour and that's all! Loved it.

Dr. Shahabadi is great. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the skin exam. She has a friendly and highly competent manner. When several problems were identified that I was concerned about, she performed some minor procedures to takecare of them without expecting me to come back for a separate visit. The office is clean and modern and the support staff are professional and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Shahabadi to anyone seeking dermatologic care.
