Doctor B is excellent and the staff friendly. Busy office but worth the wait.
I am so thankful to have found this Doctor and his amazing staff! As a Nurse, I feel I have higher expectations, as to quality of care, standard of care, and personal care. Dr. B, Janice, (the ARNP), the office staff, treat patients as if we are family. I feel the utmost care is being provided to me.
First visit. I was very satisfied with treatment. There is a helpful and friendly staff. Dr. Smith is thorough, knowledgeable and professional. I scheduled the visit due to a couple of issues. The doctor made me aware of additional symptoms found on my shoulder. I left the office with four issues resolved and a clear plan for follow up treatment.
Outstanding service and dermatology practice. .
Ive been looking for a new Dermatologist in the Woodbridge area. After looking at the positive reviews I called Skin & Laser Surgery.
The receptionist on this Friday afternoon was impatient and annoyed from moment of answering the phone. They may have a good practice but I don't want to deal with a receptionist that cant even be mildly polite.
This man is hands down, the most incompetent, ill mannered, greedy, socially inept "doctor" I've ever been exposed to. I had the MOHS procedure done for what they said was skin cancer in about 2010. I will actually never know if I was misdiagnosed. He was sued by the federal government for fraud among other things in 2014, but not convicted. I'm sure Bagjohli's pockets are deep. The indictment is published on the web. Just yesterday, I found TWO separate pieces of suture material in the disfiguring scar he left on my leg seven years ago!!
This is why I'm just now giving this review.
I'm hoping to spare others the same horror I am still going through.
Dr. B and his staff are very helpful and always on-time with the schedules appointment time.
Dr. B has always taken the time to explain a procedure and made sure I was comfortable.
The minute I walked in the door I was greeted right away. Very friendly office staff. The doctor was very knowledgeable & took his time with what I was being seen for. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.
...Been going here for a few years. If there is an issue or concern, they are professional and quickly react to resolve the problem. They want to help you and make sure you feel and look your best. Highly recommended.
As a registered nurse for over 40 years I have worked with hundreds of physicians and Dr. Bajoghli is one of the most dedicated compassionate and honest ones which is why I have chosen him to be my doctor for over 14 years. Dr Bajoghli has also treated several of my closest friends, colleagues and family members. Trustworthy and with great surgical and laser skills for my facial spots. Highly recommend his practice to anyone with skin issues.
At first I wasn't happy with my results but then they went out of their way to make sure I was happy. So I'm very thankful for that. Thank you Carmen for calling me and helping me. I would defenetly recommend you guys. Thanks to the doctor and everyone involved.
The service here is terrible. Twice now they've called me canceling the appointment I had scheduled 6 weeks in advance (because they can't schedule anything within 6 weeks) when I had already made arrangements with work and they were inflexible in rescheduling me. The one time my appointment time was actually kept and I showed up, I waited an hour and a half after my appointment time just to be seen by this doctor. This practice is terribly unorganized and they prioritize their cosmetic surgeries that bring in the most money and bump regularly scheduled appts. They don't care about their patients and prioritize them by the number of dollars they bring in.
Dr. B. and his fine staff have been excellent on numerous visits for some "skin work". They explain everything in great detail and express a genuine concern for their patients' comfort and needs. HIGHLY recommend. (go Sox !)
Everyone is very polite and helpful. Janice is wonderful. She always listens to what you have to say. Very helpful.
If I could give zero stars for Dr. Smith at this dermatology office, I would!!! My daughter has an ankle that when overworked it pops, turns pink, and she is not able to walk on it. I am very worried about her since it has been over a month that she has not been able to walk. I have taken her to 2 ER's, a podiatrist, pediatrican, orthopedic, and a health Dr. I sent pictures to Dr. Smith. He looked at it and called me accusing me and my daughter of dying her ankle. Then on top of that, I asked where I should take her bc he clearly has never seen it before. His comment was very rude and sarcastic. He said "Take her to a Magician" and laughed as he said it. I hung up on him. He then called back and accused my daughter of dying her ankle and "pretending" for it to hurt! He is very, very unprofessional and I advise everyone not to go see him unless you want to get bullied!!
I have been going to Dr Bajoghli for 14 years for a variety of skin problems. Originally, I was referred for a large skin cancer on my nose and he did a beautiful job with the Mohs surgery. He called to check on me on that evening after the surgery. That meant a lot to me. I also had my eye lid surgery done to remove the extra folds and eyes look great. A true artist. Totally recommend the office and his wonderful staff.
We had to try a couple different treatments to find one that worked but they were very patient and tried to help me the best that they could. Very accommodating and called to check on me a couple times.
I have been a patient for about 1 year and have visited their practice several times. All the staff is very professional and care the utmost about the patient. Janice Rasmussen, NP-C, especially is very knowledgeable and will explain anything you want to know regarding the diagnosis, procedures, and prognosis. I really appreciate the great care I receive.
Really, there is nothing that I could suggest to make the experience of seeing Dr. Bajoghli any better. Dr. Bajoghli and his staff are extremely pleasant and a pleasure to see. Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can't say enough about him and his staff.
I have had multiple Fractional laser resurfacing treatments for facial acne scars with excellent results. Great bedside manners as well. Very attentive.
Great service and attention to concerns. I feel like I can ask anything and it is taken seriously. Also I appreciate recommendations for procedures or medications that will save me money longer term.
Been going to Dr. Bajoghli for 15 years and had a dozen basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas treated with Mohs surgery on my face and neck. Excellent technique and results. Highly recommend the practice.
I have had my upper eyelid surgery done by Dr. Bajoghli with natural and great results. I have referred friends and family members to this great practice. Dr Bajoghli also took care of basal cell on the nose with Mohs surgery several years ago. Highly recommend this practice.
Fast, professional care as always! However, the waiting area needs a better "balance" of magazines. It is currently too female oriented. How about some magazines for men like: Road & Track, Popular Science and/or Model Airplane News?
Great place for any dermatology and skin cancer needs. Tremendous staff with front desk and nursing staff and I have been to a lot of doctor's offices. A+
My husband and I have gone to Skin & Laser surgery for at least 6 years and have had outstanding service. Don has had several skin cancers removed by Mohs surgery without any problems. Happy with results.
Greatest care and caring in every possible way. Wonderful staff. Had Mohs surgery for basal cell skin cancer. Top notch.
I have laser surgeries for facial rejuvenation and resurfacing. Very happy with the outcome. Highly recommend Dr. B and staff
I have known Dr. B for 12 years and find the practice professional and extremely caring. Each and every visit has been truly amazing. Great care & personal touch w everything Dr. B does & recommends.
Terrible. First time I went in a few years ago, the doctor strolled in 45 minutes late, looked at my burns, said "rub some vitamin E on it", and walked out. Now have scars.
Skip to today. Tried to make an appt, was put on hold for 10 minutes before giving up. Called back, got an answer, and was tersely told that my insurance plan was not accepted. Every other dermatologist/doctor I've ever been to has taken it.
Excellent pleasant staff! Very caring and professional as well as knowledgeable. I work in the medical field myself and was extremely impressed with the entire experience!
My husband and I have been seen by Dr. Bajoghli and his NP-C Janice Rasmussen for several years and could not be more pleased. Ms Rasmussen is very vigilant has diagnosed several squamous cell tumors on my husband’s scalp and neck. Dr. Bajoghli is a fantastic MOH’s surgeon! That is not his only talent however. He is interested in his patients long after he puts the scalpel away. His kind and compassionate personality helps very much when dealing with stressful news. The same goes for all the staff as well. We are in the best of hands at Skin and Laser Surgery! Thanks Dr. B and crew!!!
Here's a vote for the dermatological practice of Amir Bajoghli in Northern Virginia. I have had a number of procedures in his McLean office, all successful and comfortable. He has a great staff, caring, friendly, and very competent. With the removal of a melanoma on my ear, he may well have saved my life, or, at the least, avoided serious complications. I couldn't recommend him more highly. Carl Hoffman
Top notch Mohs surgeon. I have been going to Dr. Bajoghli for 8 years. Delighted with my skin cancer care. All gone. Thank you.
Attentive and thorough is how I describe the staff and Dr. Bajoghli. I feel the care I received was second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend them or use their medical services in the future.
Great dermatology and Mohs surgery office. Been there many times and very satisfied.
My eyelid surgery and Botox results for the facial wrinkles look very natural. Very skilled dermatologic surgeon.
Please do not come here and do not waste your time. The Doctors are good, but they took long time to see the patients. More than two hours.
I first came to see doctor Bajohli several years ago in his Woodbridge office, because of an area on my face that would not heal. He explained it was early cancer but could be removed with no problem. He quickly removed the bad skin cells and it has not returned. Since then I have returned for regular checkups and for any other skin related problems. The doctor and his staff have always been cordial and respectful. Although I now live in Manassas, it is worth the drive to Woodbridge.
Excellence treatment - wonderful services! Everyone was very helpful and kind. I will be a return customer.
Ask details and listen to all your questions direct clear answers and professional treatment. I felt comfortable and confident in the practitioners treatment
I have seen Dr B for 12 years. Great place for skin and dermatology problems. Prompt and professional
Been a patient for at least 5 years. Great Mohs surgeon and dermatologist. Highly recommend without a doubt.
I have seen NP Rassmussen twice here. I struggle with adult comedonal acne, and seborrheic dermatitis and she's been very helpful; she is very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. I've only been to two appointments, but she is great. She answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I work long hours in a stressful field (funeral service) with an unpredictable schedule. I cannot express how grateful I am to have found a doctor who respects my time and is able to provide me with the care that I need in an efficient, yet caring, manner. Both times I've been here I've been seen at my EXACT appointment time.
I've found the regime that Nurse Rasmussen prescribed for me to be effective. I'm not 100% where I want to be, but my conditions have definitely improved.
The front desk staff is very helpful and efficient, as was the male nurse who assisted Nurse Rassmussen. This office seems very busy (always a lot of people in the waiting room) but the two ladies at the front desk and the rest of the staff definitely don't make me feel rushed or unwelcome (something I've found at tons of other doctor's offices), everyone is very warm, welcoming, and patient.
I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.
My appointment was at 4pm only after I repeatedly asked about my appointment time. Subsequently I was called in the back @ 5pm . Ppl who had appointments at 415 or later all were seen before me .
I did receive a call regarding this issue. It’s means a lot when a customer concern is immediately addressed. Thanks 🙏 I have changed my rating from one star ⭐️ to ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ based on the call I received.
Best doc for my skin issue and cosmetic surgery.
I went here this past monday and had fillers. Even though i'm in the healing process, i still can see the results and i'm loving it so far. I have to say Dr. B is such a nice and very informative doctor. He was very careful and reassuring during the procedure, as to not overdo or have the results not to my likings. I really appreciate this because in the past with another it was not at all satisfying and i hated the results. I also have to praise his assistant Len, she was so nice and answered all my questions and concerns. I adored her personality and excellent bed side manner. I would definetly give this place and them a 10 star if it was an option. I will be recommending this place as well as being a return customer. Thank you so much Dr. B and Len for your excellent service
Excellent customer service by front desk.
DR MICHEAL D, is very knowledgeable and honest. he has my respect and my business.
I had a very good experience, I will definitely recommend this place to family and friends.
Not suggested the lady on the phone didn’t answer the call twice then when she did said can u hold and put me on hold for 15mins and still nothing so had to cut the phone try some other place.
I’ve been seeing Dr. B. and his team for more than 15 years and have been very happy with his practice. Just wish I had taken better care of my skin in my earlier years!
Review based on front desk, as I did not see the doctor. I made a new patient appointment on Monday for a Thursday appointment and provided my insurance information. The scheduling person told me I would be out of network and would have to pay the co-pay. Ok, no problem. I get a text confirming the 8 am appointment the day before. Cool. Looking forward to seeing someone about my issue. I get to the office Thursday morning and upon checking in, the young lady tells me she “asked someone about [my] insurance” and was informed that they no longer accept it and the cost for today would be $140. I ask why wasn’t I notified before I got to the office...her response was a blank stare. I’m fuming inside. They have a sign up saying there is a $50 charge for missed appointments; but yet, the lack of respect for my time, they find ok. What a joke. How hard would it have been to call me and let me know the change/charge before I came over, in morning rush hour? And to not offer a discounted rate for the office visit? So much for customer service. I was actually going to stay and just pay, but the more I thought about it and her blank stare, the more upset I got. I rather spend my cash with someone who values my time.
Cleared my face all up. I tried every dermatologist before and this is the first time I finally cleared. 100% recommend this dermatology and laser clinic and Dr Bajoghli without reservation.
I love the excellent skin and laser treatments and the way Dr Bajoghli and staff treat patients.
One stop place for medical and aesthetics.
Outstanding dermatologist and laser surgeon. Top of the line. Professional and friendly.
I’ve been going to skin & laser surgery Center and Dr. Bajoghli for many years and very happy with the results for my skin care and laser surgeries. Highly recommend. I have sent my hubby as well.
Appointment was fast, not a lot of waiting. Doctor was kind and professional. Would go to again.
I have seen Dr Bajoghli for dermatology issues and he has promptly taken care of them. He is the best. Minimal wait.
Happy with skin care and surgery. Seen promptly. Healing well.
Absolutely great care over several years of repairing sun damaged skin! Saved my life by diagnosing and removing a melanoma.
Great Dermatalogist! Very pleasant staff. I have been going here for decades and always get fast and effective treatment.
I went in and was greeted with a smiling face and great care I totally recommend. The doctor was very polite and explained everything to me clearly.
Although the concern that I had was a basic request, I appreciated that Janice Rasmussen provided thorough answers to my questions. Her recommendations for future consideration, in case the problem returned, have me feeling prepared and confident.
This practice is truly outstanding. My wife and I get top professional care.
I have had 3 cases of skin cancer and all have been resolved with by expert minor surgery. I would recommend this practice to anyone.
From the doctors to all the staff they give me the best care possible.
It was a good experience where I felt well taken care of and I appreciated the way my schedule was made to fit in with my limitations as a senior citizen. There was no waiting and I was allowed to come back the very next day for a second opinion at a time that was the best for me. Everyone was very kind and accommodating.
Dr. Smith is by far the best dermatologist and a very respectable man. Today was my first visit with him and I knew immediately he was well versed and clearly had decades of experience (50years to be exact). I look forward to my next exam with Dr. Smith. A+++
I've been a patient of Janice Rasmussen for several years, and I couldn't be more pleased. Janice listens to all of my concerns, no matter how trivial. I've had several brushes with skin cancer and she's always on top of that so I have a avoided cancer before it truly got hold of me. But I've had some strange things happened to my fingernails, but Janice always found what to do with them. I have some other concerns that Janice is watching over and I have to tell you she will fight for you as long as you follow her instructions. Like I said she is totally awesome and I am really blessed to have found her. I highly recommend her and I really really and truly would be hard-pressed to give her up.
Janice Rasmussen is top notch. She is kind, friendly extremely knowledgeable and funny!
The other providers and assistants are kind and professional as well. Highly recommend this practice
I wish I could leave multiple five-star reviews. I was very lucky to have Michael DiSimone, PA-C for my appointment today. He is incredibly friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and he and his assistant went above and beyond the appointment to help me. They essentially performed two appointments in one to make everything more convenient for me, and he and the (very nice) front desk staff spent several minutes discussing my final appointment fee to make sure that I was not overcharged and there were no issues. I was very pleased with my experience at the Skin and Laser Surgery Center (and with Michael, in particular), and I will continue to make recommendations to others to come here. Thank you!
Dr Bajoghli and his wonderful staff have been so good in taking care of all my squamous cell skin cancers with Mohs surgeries and other methods to keep me in good health. They were able to diagnose my skin problems promptly. Appreciate the help and top expertise. Recommend without any reservation.
I adore this practice. The front staff is always warm, professional, and efficient and I've never had a wait time that exceeded 15 minutes. Janice Rasmussen is a fantastic nurse practitioner: she is extremely knowledgeable about which treatments are available and she really listens to her patients. She is also available via both phone and email, when questions or new issues come up. When the pharmacy and insurance battle their way through six rounds of prior authorizations, the staff at Skin & Laser is extremely responsive and takes care of things quickly. Highly recommended!
Had an appointment at 2:30 and waited less than 10 minutes. As usual everyone was friendly, the PA showed up quickly, assessed the issue, completed a biopsy and was very informative. Janice Rasmussen was informative, took the time to chat and make sure my questions were answered, was kind and approachable and gave me great confidence in her capabilities. Nice experience as a patient.
after my previous comment the owner himself gave me a call to explain why the $95 for the first treatment weren't granted that it will be on my next one. He also explain to me that they are working on the availability of the staff and hired a new NP and will have extended hours. Those were my only issues with the practice but now that everything is fixed I have nothing else to say. My treatments so far have been excellent seeing results since the first one.
This is my second. basal cell surgery in the past decade. I would not ever conceive of having this procedure done anywhere else.
Dr. Bajoghli and his staff are the utmost professional, caring staff of medical professionals I have ever met in 64 years.
They ensure you are comfortable during the entire procedure, explain what they are doing
and the areas that are involved are returned as close as possible to the original condition.
I would not recommend anyone else.
My husband and I both use this practice and have been pleased. I was scheduled last week to come into have an annoying rash looked at. I arrived at 4 pm for a 4:15 appointment. It is now 5:33 and I have yet to see the doctor. I understand he is a part time, semi- retired practitioner. From what the staff says, he always runs behind. Don’t know his name but will NEVER allow them to schedule me with him again. If we weren’t leaving town and needed to be seen, I would have walked out.
Bottom line upfront: great practice/office/staff, professional, competent and personable. I’ve been visiting this office twice a year for the past 10 years or so to keep an eye on sun damage I’ve acquired over the years. I usually see Janice for my screenings….she is extremely professional, personable and most importantly extremely competent. Dr. Bajoghli has surgically removed several areas of skin cancer from me in the last several years, always doing a great job, professional and inspires confidence. Had the pleasure of meeting Michael on my last visit….hate to use the same words again, but he too was extremely professional, personable and competent. I highly recommend this practice/office.
I was here with my mom and dad for a refill on my prescription since my old dermatologist retired. I walked in and the 2 women at the desk were very nice and informing. This was my first time coming to this office. They call me in and Jessica Matias introduced herself to me and my family. She was nice at first, but she got irritated when my mom kept asking questions, being a PAYING patient we have all rights to ask QUESTIONS. You could tell she was getting annoyed; it came to a point where Jessica literally.. VERBATIM said to my mom “I’m not going to argue with your opinions.” As she said that she was blinking her eyes and doing head motions. Her negative energy made the whole room feel down after this point. I wanted to LEAVE because I felt my heart going fast and my leg was shaking out of being heated. She than said she was going to give us my refill on my prescription. Her and some other lady with her walked out and shut the door behind them. Being that they shut the door; me and my family stayed in the room because we thought they were going to come back. 5 minutes go by and we realize that they weren't going to come back. We than left the room and as i was about to leave I looked at them dead in their eyes and said “Really? You weren't gonna tell us we were done?!” Because at this point i’m already late for work as well. They both looked at me like they were shook; they knew they were in the wrong. Flat out unprofessional and unwelcoming is what my experience here was. I am not going to come back here and will have to look for another dermatologist unfortunately. Worst experience I have EVER had in my life going into an office.
Great fractional laser resurfacing results for my face and wrinkles. Beautiful natural results. Cost is very reasonable and market. People keep wanting to touch my face because it’s so nice now.
My first experience with skin cancer removal. There was good communication and instruction, all the staff were professional and friendly. There were other people in the waiting room that I talked to. They were happy with the service they received there also.My procedure went well.
Saved my life. Great job over the years with skin surgeries for melanomas. Dr Bajoghli and staff are super. Professional and caring.
Whole family loves to see the doctor. Fixed the scar with laser surgery on daughter's neck and you could not see it at her wedding.
I scheduled an appointment for a minor cosmetic procedure two weeks before my appointment date, and when I came at my scheduled time, they had no record of my appointment. The receptionist confirmed that the number I had called was them and was uncertain what had occurred. The Dr offered to potentially squeeze me in and visually examined whether he would be able to while I was at the front desk. He seemed highly agitated and overbooked but offered to do it. After seeing his demeanor and wasting two weeks time, I decided to go elsewhere instead. I wouldn't allow anyone perform a procedure on me under those circumstances no matter how minor.
Loved the atmosphere. I saw so many of our young and beautiful next generation Afro-American leaders of tomorrow.
I only wished the landscape and...read this and 20 more
