Great service and very friendly staff. Was seen for an urgent appointment for a scary mole. Had it biopsied and then surgically removed in 8 days. I'm scared of needles but the appointment went by without an issue. Thanks for an amazing experience. Will be back yearly now for a check up.

Dr. Alim Devani and his staff are a wonderful group. Have been seeing him and Pam for 6 months now and just got married this past weekend. I had horrible acne on my face and back and wanted to be clear for my wedding. He said that the only option to make this possible was accutane. I didn't hesitate and I was cleared up by 4 months and just have a few weeks to go now. I couldn't drink alcohol on the wedding day but that was a trade off for flawless skin. He also did my botox before the wedding and it turned out great. I'm so happy I was sent to his clinic.

Had a great experience today at the clinic. Was seen on-time and had a biopsy done for a suspicious lesion on my arm. The reception was very happy and the nurses were great. Just have to wait for the results but Dr. Devani was awesome!

horrible doctor. Doesn't write clear or detailed instructions of how medical staff should use the prescriptions. seems to have ADHD. Moody or nice, flip flops. Doesn't do his own instruction writing and passes it off to a nurse that wasn't even in the room. Many errors, mistakes, missed or wrong things written. Also doesn't use protective glasses when burning off skin cancer and has accidently dropped this fluid onto eyelid.

NOT IMPRESSED!!! Started on time but spent less than 3 minutes with me and didn't even look at my eczema. Was more interested in getting me to talk to his staff at his cosmetic clinic across the hall. After waiting months to get in I expected much more than a quick "moisturize more" excerpt. I will not be returning to him in the future and will be telling my family GP who referred me about my experience.

Had to hold long enough to get an answering service get me to leave a message. No return call for 3 days. Once there, started right on time, but spent all of 2 minutes with me and I was out the door. Returned a few months later and same in and out. Was also told that if it wasn't working I can't be doing it right... Went back a third time to get a refill on the prescription (can't do that over the phone) and this time he pointed out that he could get the marks off my face with a laser device. I asked how much, he said probably around $150. I said sure and left paying $200. And used the Vaseline he told me to buy. Had to go back because my face inflamed within a few days and massive flakes were peeling and had become sore. Was told that I should have just used the other cream I had. Even though it specifically says not to be used on the face. Hopefully I will be able to see someone else soon.

I have found him to be very competent and very confident in what he does. Having the appointment actually take place on time is a bonus.

Great service. Dr. Divani is always on time and provides thorough and friendly service. I have seen him for both skin issues and for face rejuvenation. He does an awesome job on all fronts. The staff are very friendly and his assistant is great. All-in-all, I love this place.

Trying to call the desk in a nightmare. You will be on hold for a long time. One time I called the service said I was number 33 in the queue! I just hung up and tried the next day. I got in to see him about severe psoriasis. It took some work on his part but got me approved for Stelara and within 3 months I was 50% clear now 5 month later I am about 80% clear. He knew his stuff, he was fast but I don't mind that as long as what he does works. I would trust him with any other derm issues.

Dr. Devani is an amazing doctor. He treated a muscle in my cheek with botox. I was having a tough time chewing food. I can now eat properly without any pain.
