Shivani is great she is currently helping me get over a very scary skin condition. She explains everything very thoroughlyand she gives you plenty of time to think about your different treatment options. She is very friendly and great bedside manner. The front staff is very friendly including Stephanie, one of the medical assistants who made me very comfortable for my first visit. I hope that I don't have to keep on visiting this office too often but I wouldn't mind if I have too.

Really nice office, maybe a 10-minute wait. Shivani was really sweet though and it didn't seem as though she was trying to prescribe me anything I didn't need. In fact, she was really great about listening to what I wanted and worked around it. Also gave me a few free samples which are always a plus in my books!

The people working there make this place amazing. Carla and Shivani were patient with us, answering all questions, explaining what they were looking for and I love the holistic approach. Providing a variety of alternatives to protect and care for our skin. Definitely going to make this my place for skin health.

Amazing staff and place! I have to say I've never felt so relaxed at a dermatologist appointment as I did that day. The staff were.very friendly and helped me through the initial paperwork. I was offered water, which I gladly accepted because it was a super hot day. The doctor was super nice and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable through the body scan which could make people feel self conscious for so many reasons. I will definitely recommend it to all friends and family.

I was seen within 10 minutes of my appointment time, and put at ease by the examiner's friendly and personable manner. Shivani and her assistant Stephanie performed a thorough examination and took their time to explain options for further treatment and follow-up care.

Overall, Doctor Shivani attended me quick and provided the medication I needed. However, when I asked her if I can get an extra refill on my medication, she agreed she would, but when I logged into my express scripts account, I noticed she did not keep her word. I called the office and someone said she would call me back, but she never did. After this, I will not be returning. There is no reason why I should keep paying a copay every two months just for my mediation.
