She knew right away what my problem was and was so helpful coaching me how to not make my skin conditionworse and how to maintain it the right way. I left feeling relieved that I now have my own dermatologist I can rely on.

First time at that office so registration paperwork is really what made it a bit longer. Once paper work was done I went in right away and she saw me shortly thereafter. Dr Simela does an excellent check of the skin because she uses her special derm light over the whole body, even hair. She is the BEST Dermatologist I have ever met. Sincerely

She’s very professional and what I think is great is that she tries the products before hand so that she personally knows what works and what doesn’t and how it’ll affect you.
