Specialties

Dr. Monica M Bonakdar has the following 2 specialties

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

If I could give Dr. B a million stars, I would! First I'll start with her office is always extremely clean and welcoming. Her staff is sooo insanely friendly and helpful. Any time I go in there I want to stay and hang out and chat, because everyone is so kind. They even told me about this amazing rewards program that no one has ever told me about before, so excited for that! And DR B IS A GODESS! She genuinely cares about her practice and has taken so much time with me. She has answered a bunch of questions that I had and she nailed it with a problem I was having with my lips. One side has always be dramatically smaller than the other and she's the ONLY person who knew how to fix it and fixed it. I've been extremely happy every time I have left her office. Thank you, to everyone at Dr. Bonakdar's office!

Quick and Easy

I wasn't always careful about sun exposure growing up and I have skin damage on my face, neck and chest to show for it. Dr. Bonakdar suggested a series of Fraxel treatments. She said I am allowed to have sun exposure in the future as long as I wear sunscreen every day. She was also upfront about the down time I could expect and the maintenance I would need in the future. She takes the fear out of the unknown by educating you in advance. I feel that I can trust her with all her recommendation.

Thank you Dr. Bonakdar!

I love my Dysport treatments with Dr. Bonakdar. She is truly an expert with the needle. I have always had great results. I don’t worry about bruising anymore because she has a cool new gadget that shows her the under the skin veins. That’s the great thing about her. She is always ahead of other doctors with technology. I highly recommend her for all your beauty needs.

Glad I found The Right Doctor

I have moved 3 times in the last six years and have had to find 3 new doctors to have my Botox and fillers. I saw Dr. Bonakdar’s office sign on PCH and looked her up online. I was very impressed with the number of positive online reviews she has. I liked the staff right away. My first appointment went very well. Dr. Bonakdar is a perfectionist. She took a complete history of what all I had done. She gave me a complete consultation when she found out I am new in town and want to establish a program with her. Thank you Dr. Bonakdar for being there for me.

Excellent!

My friend had Ultherapy and told me to do it but not with her doctor! I asked her why and she said that it hurt and that the nurse would not give her anything for the pain because the doctor was not in the clinic. I called around and found out that Dr. Bonakdar does Ultherapy treatments herself and has her patients come one hour before the procedure for numbing and medications so that it is more comfortable. She also used a cold air blower that helped. She has a gentle hand. I like with my results and am pleased to have found such an awesome practice. Thank you Dr. Bonakdar.
