Wow seems you either love this guy or hate him. Add me to hate group. My experience was all to similar to the folks that spent under five minutes with the man and was pretty much unceremoniously shown the door. My own doctor now knows that she should probably not refer patiences to him and my problem continues to worsen but hopefully there is a dermatologist out there that will have some real answers for me. Get to start the long wait all over again. Oh yeah the front desk was also pretty involved in thier own little world as well but I guess who can blame them when the fellow they work for clearly is not too interested.

Excellent Service cured with one treatment which I had been to another Dermatologist with multiple visits and weeks of treatment with no results. Dr. Devani knows what he is doing and does it well.

Not even a glance to acknowledge my presence. Started cutting my face before freezing took . Yelled at nurse to give more freezing. Came back and proceeded to remove growth. Still not a word from him. Left me with a huge wound that is still causing considerable pain weeks later. Thankfully I have an appointment with another doctor who will hopefully fix my problem. Would never recommend this man to anyone. 1 star just for showing up.

Dr Devani is amazing.!! and so is his staff. I see lots of people commenting about how quick he is. I think it is wonderful. I had no wait time and I was and out. This was the fastest Dr appointment ever! I love the fact that he doesn't waste time. He gets right down to business and asks good questions and does the treatment needed. If I could give him 10 stars I would. Highly recommended!

Dr davani is amazing. I saw a different dermatologist previously who refused to remove some moles or put me on acutaine. He did both for me the first appointment. I missed 2 appointments in a row (very unlike me normaly) I felt terrible and showed up the day after. The staff are so friendly and talked to him and he still saw me. He is kind, knows what he is talking about and actually takes the time to listen to your needs. I would recommend him to anyone.

I was seen by Dr. Devani for assessment and treatment of acne. One of the best medical experiences I have had thus far. His staff were very welcoming and attentive. Dr Devani himself provided a thorough consultation - he took the time to explain the different therapies and their side effects. I was impressed with his knowledge, and his efforts to make my visit relevant and beneficial. His clinic is quite punctual and provides the best dermatology service around Calgary. I trust his work and highly recommend him to anyone!

The Dr. looked uninterested barely took 2 min to review my condition, probably coz I lied that I don't have a medical insurance , they might have thought I would not be able to pay the bills so why waste time.
