Best Dermatologist EVER!!!

I have been Dr K's patient for 14 years now and so are my children. We have come to him with all sorts of problems, from eczema to poison ivy and staph infections. Dr Kayal can look at something and diagnose it right away, and every time he does a biopsy, the pathology reports come back with exactly what he diagnoses us with. Absolutely Brilliant!!!

Best Scelro!

I went in for a consultation with Dr. Kayal regarding my leg spider veins. I had them treated many times with Laser and they just never budged. I took a chance on Dr. Kayal and I can't be more thrilled! I'm 47 and I swear I've had these things since I was 16...but now...GONE! Love it!!

EXCELLENT SERVICE!!

New to the area and needed a dermatologist. Saw an ad in the Our Town Magazine for this practice and decided to give them a try and I was impressed! The scheduler was very customer friendly and even asked if I needed directions after I told him I was new to the area, from the time I enter their new building, I felt at ease in knowing that my skin issue would be taken care of. Everyone smiled and greeted me in the hallway even though it seem very busy, that goes a long way when you are a little nervous about a doctor visit. Highly recommend!!

Over 60 skin cancer surgeries....

IMPORTANT!!! The end of 2015 I went to Dr. Kayal because my Dr. was completely booked. I have had over 60 skin cancer surgeries, some major, some minor for three different forms of Skin Cancer - two common and one rare. They found four more Basil Cell on my back. I am an "expert" at Skin Cancer having to deal with it for 24 years now. First diagnosis was age 26. They wanted to do a special procedure called MOHS. Four basil cell on my back and they wanted to do MOHS. MOHS is a costly procedure that is typically done on the face (because of cosmetic outcome). Out of the 60 plus surgeries I have had perhaps 8 maybe 10 were MOHS. Other than the monetary benefit or perhaps lack of skills in removing Basil Cell, I can not justify doing such a procedure. When I spoke to them they would not budge. MOHS or nothing! Upon communicating with them to get calls returned was like pulling teeth. Their number one excuse was they were in the process of relocating and things were not being communicated properly. Okay...whatever. There is a reason for me saying this noted later in this review. I went ahead and got TWO other professional opinions! TWO. Both agreed that MOHS was too invasive of a procedure for Basil Cell on the back especially since they were mainly superficial basil cell! A skilled professional should be able to remove it straight line with very minimal scarring. My exact thoughts. As it turns out they are still on my back to this day as the second opinion was booked through the end of the year to do surgery and monetarily I could not do it this year. I am going back TODAY to talk to one of the Drs in the office that could not see me originally because they were booked through the end of last year. I called Dr. Kayal yesterday to have them email me my path reports. In light of the horrible communication the end of last year, to make sure they got it right email I repeated my email address FOUR times, spelling it out letter by letter by number, and told them the importance of sending it right away and she said she would immediately. Much like last year, they never did! And guess what, this time they can not use the excuse of relocating the office. I was going to write a review last year but decided against it. My concern was that if he was trying to manipulate me into such a unnecessary procedure I was worried that someone new to skin cancer, who did not know the options or was not as well versed as I am would fall into his monetary trap. After they did not email me yesterday as promised there is no doubt this office is not only unorganized but clearly does not look after the patients best interest. I am not saying NOT to use Dr. Kayal. BUT PLEASE do yourself a favor, before any procedure get a second or third if need be opinion. I have the unfortunate privilege of being able to know what is best for different diagnoses. My heart reaches out to anyone that may be first diagnosed perhaps with a Basil Cell on a part of the body where MOHS is truly not necessary but does not know any better hence taking the Dr.'s suggestion. In a way I am glad they did not email me what I needed yesterday or today because I finally wrote something that should have been written nine months ago.

Only one problem

Had two issues, which I told them when making appointment, but when went to see was told that as a new patient you could only have one problem addressed. Barely seen not examined, and got charged for a level 3 visit
