Verified Patient Reviews
I had a great first experience today. Dr. Shahabadi was kind, thorough, and thoughtful. She took time to answer my questions and provide help. Thank you Dr. S!
Dr. Shahabadi is great! She always helps me when my eczema flares up. She is very kind and has great suggestions for my skin with RX to use and over the counter remedies.
I have seen Dr. Shahabadi several times and have always been pleased. She is very professional, personable, and knowledgeable. She performed a thorough exam, gave me two options for procedures I could have, and answered all of my questions. I can highly recommend her.
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 a referral that was sent to them 2 weeks prior to the appointment? I was told I wouldn't be seen without a referral.
Both the doctor and the nurse were very friendly, provided clear descriptions about what to expect and what they were doing. I had a mole removed and it was painless compared to one I had removed years before elsewhere.
This was my first visit with Dr. Shahabadi and I'm so happy I was referred to her! She was so friendly, thorough and informative. She took time to answer all of my questions and made sure I understood things. Her staff was just as friendly and helpful. It was a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend Dr. Shahabadi if you are looking for a dermatologist!
Wait time excessive every time we go. Very frustrating. Difficult for follow up or feedback from office on results.
In response to the wait time - My appointment was set for 8:40 am - I didn't get to see Dr. Shahabadi until 9 am. No explanation as to the delay or apology. This was very disappointing for me.
Doctor Shahabadi was extremely thorough in her examination. She was able to identify my problems and she prescribed a treatment which was effective. She is very pleasant and friendly and is able to make her patients feel confident that she understands them.
Fantastic physician, we always get results and she takes great care of all of us from 3 years to 40 years!!
She is fantastic, I wish all doctors were like her.
Everything was great but I waited a long time to be seen by Dr. Shahabadi.
Very nice, I will be back
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 questions was 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 take care 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.
Dr. Shahabadi is knowledgable and thorough in her practice. Combined with true interest and care gives you a feeling of confidence. The entire staff is of the same caliber. I didn't realize until today I have been under her care for three years. Zocdoc needs more stars for Dr. Shahabadi.
While I liked the information and attentiveness and professionalism of Dr. Shahabadi, I was surprised that the wait time was 50 minutes. I had to tell the front desk person that I had to be home at a certain time after the appointment before she went to check into what the hold up might have been in the back. It was a very good appointment, and I received good care and information, but before it I thought I might have to leave and reschedule for another day.
She is a great doctor! My son said she is beautiful and felt comfortable to tell the doctor his disease. She gave us a clear treatment choices; however, I would like to hear more about the side effects of the treatment when a patient forgets to ask. Anyway, I would like highly recommend her to everyone.
Dr. Shahabadi was very courteous and professional. She answered all the questions I had and was very knowledgeable on the topics.
Short and sweet follow-up.
She is fantastic! Very personable!
all the staff are friendly and professional, just what you want in a Dr.s office.
She's great - as always. She always remembers my husband and sends a hello messsage along to him. She makes me feel so comfortable.
Always productive, prompt and good.
Very professional showing tremendous expertise in her profession.
I went in for a biopsy of a mole on the sole of my foot. I checked in online with Zocdoc so I was ushered into a treatment room within 5 mins. of arrival. I didn't have to wait long, a nurse took all my information. Then Dr. Shahabadi entered to begin the procedure which, except for the shot to administer the anesthetic, was quick and painless. This visit was par for the course for Dr. Shahabadi. So far, her diagnoses and recommended treatments have been very accurate and effective.
First appointment. Will rate again when I've had my follow-up. My appointment ran 30" late. Doctor was proactive in taking a skin biopsy which I appreciate.
Dr. Shahabadi is the consummate professional. Her patient interaction is excellent. She explains what she is going to do and answers any questions clearly. The staff is efficient and pleasant to work with.
Always great/friendly/empathetic/thorough exams/procedures.
Face discoloration, but she did blood test but don't find any thing then she took biopsy from my neck to do the face treatment, what I am thinking, what I want to go for then she called me , got the biopsy and giving me the cream for my neck, I was so upset and disappointed, I went there for my face discoloration and she giving me the treatment for my neck, can't believe that, my insurance pay the money for nothing then I ask for face telling me come again after 4 week, ha ha , what a doctor or ?
I thought Dr. Shahabadi was very professional and friendly for the brief period of time I spoke with her. She listened to what I had to say and gave me her opinions methodically. The only issue I had was the appointment was 30 minutes late but the office and staff were nice and so was the doctor. Very good experience overall.
Today was my first visit to her office and both she and her staff were wonderful! Everyone was professional, attentive to my needs and took time to answer all my questions. I was especially pleased that both the exam and follow-on procedures could be done in the same visit.
Professional, friendly and confident. You know you are in good hands under the care of Dr. Shahabadi!
Took care of my issues.
I am always happy to see Dr. Shahabadi! She is knowledable and personable. The entire group at her office welcomes you!!
She's a pro. I have full confidence in her.
Couldn't have been more pleasant, professional, reassuring. Her practice partner, Dr. Mirali, plastic/reconstruction surgeon, is equally awesome.
Dr. Shahabadi remembered me from a similar visit 2 years ago & was able to identify the problem and the treatment.
The appointment was for my daughter and it was perfect, doctor was very nice, professional, gave a diagnosis and treatment quickly and make me feel safe and happy as mom, and talk to her, gave all attention a teenager needs. I highly recommend her.
Very thorough and professional without any wasted time. I was in and out in 30 minutes.
Very happy with the visit. All of the people I interacted with were very friendly and helpful.
My issues were taken care of professionally and quickly.
Dr. Shahabadi is very knowledgeable and personable, Her bedside manner is excellent. I have had three malignant lesions and several benign lesions removed from my face quite successfully
Dr. Shahabadi is excellent! She is so kind and caring.
I was referred to Dr. Shahabadi by a friend and I'm so glad I went! I have never had acne in my 27 years but the past few months I've been having a LOT of flare ups. She made me comfortable and talked to me like she'd known me forever. She answered all my questions (I had several regarding medications, insurance, etc) in detail and came up with a customized plan for me. I would recommend her wholeheartedly!
I'd recommend Dr. Shahabadi to anyone. She is attentive, friendly, professional, and always takes the time to discuss issues, concerns, etc...
Friendly, skilled, knowledgeable doctor providing unrushed appointments and procedures. Partners with brilliant surgeon who happens to be her husband!
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 of skin care and skin screenings no matter the percentage of melanin one contains. I'll continue to see her for my yearly screenings.
Consistently excellent - I love Dr. Shahabdi and her staff!
Very knowledgeable, I appreciate her and her staff explaining the importance of skin screenings and skin health for brown people, its not discussed with regular physicians, so I appreciated her knowledge on the subject matter.
Excellent physician, and very easy to talk to.
Dr. Shahabadi is always professional, friendly and courteous. Answers all my questions and explains what she is doing
Dr Shahabadi and her staff were fantastic. I brought my mother in for an appt. I decided to move my entire family to her office immediately. Such a great doctor. She really listen to my concerns.
Excellent! She is very personable and does not recommend unecessary products or procedures. She is not pushy at all and I really like that proffessionalism.
Answered all my questions; put me at ease and was positive and upbeat.
Dr Shahabadi was very personable and explained everything that was going on during the visit. Her bedside manner was fantastic and when the visit was completed she took some time to answer any questions I had before leaving. Would highly recommend Dr. Shahabadi.
Dr. S was thorough, competent, explained everything. Great doctor. Highly recommend.
Good if a little quick. Only saw Dr. Shahabadi for about 5 minutes to confirm her nurse practitioner's thoughts. My appointment was at 2:45PM - I arrived late but within their 15 minute grace window. I was seen around 3:30PM. I would have appreciated a more indepth explanation of her reasoning, especially when I conveyed that I had some understanding of what I was experiencing and was somewhat familiar with the medical terminology.
I found Dr. Shahabadi using my insurance company list of participating doctors and I am so glad I did. The Doctor is very thorough and listened to all my concerns and took care of every single one of them. The staff are courteous and friendly. The Office is very modern, bright and welcoming. I have certainly found a one of a kind Dermatologist and highly recommend her and her office.
As always, she was totally awesome!
She is great, she remembers her patients and is so nice and quick.
We've seen Dr. Shahabadi several times for my sons skin issues. Today after our appt, he said, Dr. Shahabadi is my favorite Dr. She's great with him but also with explaining to my husband and I what we can do to help our son be more comfortable. I highly recommend her!
My wait time was fine - I arrived earlier than my scheduled appointment. Was uncertain of the parking situation.
Felt very well taken care from time of checkin to check out. MD very attentive to my needs and questions. Very knowledgable. Very open to questions n concerns, answered all my questions. Super friendly staff. Felt like family
I am not happy about several things: 1) the wait time when calling to schedule appointments (can be 20 minutes or more on hold just to get the receptionist/scheduler, 2) seems like at least half the time she has people there observing the appointment when she is there with you, 3) it takes quite a while to get appointments as she is the only doctor in the practice, 4) she will often prescribe something, say for acne, and tell you to try it for a few weeks, and then if it doesn't work, to call her and she'll send in a prescription with stronger medication. When you call back, they will say to schedule another appointment. 5) when you are using a standard acne medication for months on end, she will often not do refills but make you come in.
Awesome physician and friendly staff....
I Felt Very Comfortable Talking To Her About All My Skin Concerns & Issues. She Took The Time To Explain Discuss & Review Options With Me. Which Made Me Feel Very Confident In My Skin Care. My Daughters Also See Dr Shahabadi As Well, We All Love Her & Her Staff! Will Definitely Stay With Dr Shahabadi & Recommend To All My Family & Friends! :)
She is great. Very personable and makes sure to make a connection with the patient. She is fast but checks every inch of your skin.
Dr. Shahabadi was very friendly, thorough and professional. She provided helpful suggestions regarding reducing prescription drug costs.
Overall, my appointment with Dr. Shahabadi was great. She was very knowledgeable about my concerns, and was open to answer all of my questions. She also recommended the products and supplements I should use to improve my condition. She seems to genuinely care about the well-being of her patients. I scheduled my 4-month follow up appointment as well. I will say, however, I had to wait about 15-20 minutes before being called in. But, nonetheless, my experience was great.
Most excellent and professional
Dr. Shahabadi and her entire staff have always been well organized timely. Dr. Shahabadi ALWAYS has a smile and is interested in you being there and responds to all questions. You never feel rushed or hurried.
The doctor focused on issues of concern and treated those with care. Her bedside manner and professionalism are 5 star!
Knowledgeable and professional physician with complete understanding of her field. A credit to the medical community.
She was lovely and efficient. I'm a little concerned about buying a shampoo directly from the office; did she recommend it because it's the best or because she receives a percentage of the sale?
Skilled professional with wonderful personality. I wish she could be all my doctors.
Very friendly staff and Doctor. Plenty of time to ask questions. Knowledgeable
It's unfortunate that doctors these days don't practice with a more holistic and humanistic approach. I was very disappointed with my appointment as Dr. Shahabadi saw me less than 3 minutes to discuss my acne and eczema issues. I would have appreciate her discussing different options, and receiving some education on what is going on physically. Won't be following up or going back and will be finding a new doctor who hopefully will take the time to involve me in my treatment.
I love her and the staff!! Everyone is always so nice,patient and helpful!
Doctor Shahabadi is really nice and I enjoy talking with her. She's friendly and is a great dermatologist. My acne has gotten so much better since I started seeing her.
She was great.A very very good doctor.
My visit with Dr. Shahabadi was and always is a pleasure. I love her bed side manner and her knowledge and expertise of new and innovative procedures pertaining to my illness.
My skin problems were resolved quickly and I was on my way!
The doctor was friendly to staff was friendly although appointment seemed a little rushed but overall it worked out
She was so polite and welcoming, answering all my questions. Seemed very knowledgeable about my issue as I had sought multiple opinions regarding this issue.
Consistently very pleasant and conscientious doc and staff; especially like her partnering in the practice with surgeon. Very convenient for one-stop shopping!
She was very pleasant. However, it was a long wait and I needed to get back to work. The results of my procedure: One side is bruised and the other side doesn't look like it got any fillers at all. So I am hoping that it looks better next week . . .
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.
She was the best!
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 am happy to be a patient of Dr. Shahabadi. She has a warm and caring manner, and is always very thorough in her examination. She has excellent advice about products and procedures. Her office staff is also quite helpful.
I really like Dr. Shahabadi. She is efficient, is easy to talk to, and good at what she does.
Always very attentive and efficient. She is fast but doesn't overlook moles or any other potential red flags.
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.
The doctor was professional and friendly, as well as extremely thorough. The office staff was very friendly and quite helpful.
Seemed nice n professional
Very Kind, Humble and Patient. Gives you proper time and explain you everything in detail.
she is very nice and sweet and go to the point
