Dr. Gharavi is an excellent surgeon, dermatologist. He has great hands, and he showed a lot of respect for my mom. He was very considerate and showed a lot of caring and understanding. And most of all, he was very sensitive to my mom’s needs, and I thank him so very, very much.

He is a true artist whose scars are hard to find. Recovery is swift with minimum discomfort. And best of all he is thoughtful, patient and very charming.

I am grateful for Dr. Gharavi’s expertise and eye in detecting abnormalities. He was suspicious of a mole, even after an initial shave biopsy with another provider came back from Pathology as negative for skin cancer. After removing the mole, he sent it to Pathology for a second look. That result came back as positive for basal cell carcinoma. I am in the process of scheduling an appointment for Mohs surgery and am thankful we caught this.

Dr Gharavi is kind, compassionate and very focussed on the patient. But, most importantly, he is incredibly skilled at his job. In my case, he had to perform surgery on my face, and the scar is almost invisible. I would recommend him to everyone.
