It was my husband's visit and he says this is a most thorough dermatologist... My husband needed really excellent dermatological skills... We left happy... he is very efficient and to the point. My husband appreciated this approach because he too is medical and could talk the lingo.

Susan C.

Dr. Ghohestani is the BEST dermatologist .... I've been going to him for about three years now and I am the happiest with my skin than I have ever been... been to three different dermatologists before him, none of their regimens worked long-term for me. Dr. Ghohestani not only prescribed me a regimen that cleared my skin... he changed my life ... It is without hesitation that I recommend this dermatologist and skin guru!
