"I have been coming to this location for a while now and I have always had a very positive experience. The office provides a warm, caring atmosphere from the front desk receptionists to the provider. Kelly, the provider, is very thorough in his examinations. He never provides unnecessary treatments. His attention to detail is sharp, always point out problems quickly, and providing the solutions needed. You couldn’t ask for a better office for services."

"My doctor has been very professional in all my visits to West Dermatology. He has always been thorough in his exam and asked pertinent questions. He is quick as well as being efficient. I would recommend him to anyone for skin care needs."

"My name is Jimmy and I have suffered for many years with bumps on my nose. The bumps were swollen and made my nose appear to be bigger. When I came to Dr. Arkawi, he understood my struggle with my nose. He came up with a good plan to take care of it and I’m happy to say I have seen some great changes. I feel more confident about the appearance of my nose and I am very happy that I came here. Thank you, Dr. Arkawi!"

"I have been a patient with Kevan Arkawi for approximately four years now. He has been treating me for psoriasis. He is a great doctor, always give me an answer for all my questions, always gives me the right medications, and truly cares for me and my issues. I highly recommend him and his staff."

"I have a very good experience seeing Dr. Arkawi for my skin check up. He was very nice and explained the procedure to me. I would definitely make another appointment if I have any new skin problems. Will recommend him to my family for sure."

"My treatment and care has been excellent. As my doctor is very kind, listens to his patients, and has a positive approach with a great smile. I told my sister about his great care and she is now a patient with him. And is very pleased as well. I would also like to add, the personnel at the front desk is also very pleasant."
– Ruthie

"I am a patient of Dr. Kenan Arkawi and have had a great experience every time I have been here. He is very polite, listens to me and makes me feel comfortable. My sister referred me after I had a very bad experience with a different dermatologist and almost decided not to try again. I am very glad that I decided to come here because the damage I did to my skin that I thought would never go away is slowly healing thanks to Dr. Arkawi. It’s also nice to be able to deal with a staff that is also polite, patient and has a very kind atmosphere."

"Over the course of the years I have been a patient at many dermatologist offices. However, I am so pleased with the care I’ve received at the West Dermatology Santa Margarita office for the past three years that I not only highly recommend this office in particular to anyone I know of that is looking for dermatology services. I’m also willing to drive over 120 miles round trip just to receive care from this office! As soon as you walk in the office, you are warmly greeted by genuine and caring staff. The waiting room is comfortable and you are always offered water or coffee. The office manager is the epitome of efficiency and caring and always works hard to obtain approval for insurance services as quickly as possible. Every nurse that I’ve ever encountered at this office is professional, very competent, yet also warm and caring. The physician assistant is highly skilled and comes up with a great game plan for addressing every dermatological need. He fully explains his assessment and the care you need. On top of this, the doctor has a great bedside manner. If there should be a need for Moh’s, you are in exceptional hands and care, as the Moh’s surgeon is, in my estimation, one of the best surgeons you will ever find. If you are looking for a dermatologist office which has the components of a warm and caring staff and competent, professional, and up-to-date doctors, you would be hard pressed to find another office like West Dermatology. I highly recommend them."

"Just wanted to drop a line thanking Matthew Smith for the great job he did in removing the cist on my cheek. Very professional, efficient and excellent bedside PUUQmanner."

"I think Dr. Forman and her Staff, Shelia and Mike, are fantastic. They are professional, efficient, on time, and do excellent diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. They have treated over 50 potential skin cancers with outstanding result. You have to look very hard to see after surgery sites.
I highly recommend West Dermatology."
