Dr. Master Testimonials

Patient reviews for our dermatologists comment on their communication skills, attentiveness, bedside manner and most importantly--excellent outcomes! If you had the best experience, please write an online review. If we could have been better, please tell us, so we can further improve.

Dr. Master and his staff far surpassed my expectations! I’ve struggled with skin irritation and rash that made it impossible to sleep at night and unbearable to face the day for 2+ years. I saw multiple health providers who gave one diagnosis (& multiple prescriptions) after another—all to no avail. I’m SO THANKFUL that I finally got referred to Dr. Master whose diagnosis and skincare regime literally turned my life around! I’m now rash free and so grateful for Dermatology Arts, Dr. Master, and staff!!

The doctor was a great personality and explained everything to me in terms I could digest. He provided realistic options up front and put me in control of my health. I got all the info I needed and will definitely return in the future.

This was easily one of the most comfortable doctor visits I have ever had. Dr. Master is extremely personable, knowledgeable and comforting. I will definitely continue to go to Dr. Master for my dermatologist needs and will recommend him to friends and family. I also really liked the location (plenty of parking) and facility (an old house converted into a modern medical office). I highly recommend visiting Dr. Master - I cannot imagine you being disappointed!

I’m really glad I went to see Dr Master! He was extremely friendly from the get go, you feel more like you’re seeing a friend then a doctor. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend anyone to make an appointment with him.

Great visit with a great doctor. I haven’t had a doctor give me so much of his undivided attention in years. I wish the rest of the medical world could follow Dr. Master’s example!

Very polite, very informative, and I loved that he had a very educational way of teaching his intern in the room. Very professional, very positive attitude, and just a very pleasant experience.

Samir is the man!!! His wonderful office staff makes having psoriasis easier. Works for you to get what you need, even if your insurance company is being difficult.
