Our Patients Love Us

I have been to several different dermatologists over many years. Dr Fein and Palos Verdes Dermatology Associates are by far the BEST I have ever experienced.

” 

Steve C.

He was very helpful and VERY knowledgeable. It didn't take him long, but what he recommended really worked for my horrible acne.

” 

Romie B.

This was my first visit to Dr. Fein's office and my experience with him was one of the best, if not the best, that I've had to this point.

” 

Nap L.

Most importantly, Dr. Fein has always taken the time to listen to my concerns, he thoroughly examined me and always was able to prescribe the correct treatment. 5 Stars all around, will be my dermatologist for life.

” 

Hatem D.

Very friendly and thorough explanation. Thank you!

” 

Cristal K.

He later prescribed me antibiotics and *poof* a week later it started clearing up! I should have not wasted time and money and just come to see Dr. F earlier!

” 

Christine L.

Very efficient, professional and caring.

” 

Marsha V.

Dr. Fein is very patient and good at what he does. He is careful with the dose he prescribes to his teenager patients and tends to start conservative and safe and go stronger once he know they can tolerate it. He is very good at explaining to his teenage patients so that they don't feel they're being talked down to. We've had very positive experiences each time we meet with him.

” 

Maxine W.

It seemed to me they went above and beyond what was expected and they really seem to know what they are doing.

” 

Jena L.

He stopped in to check on me even though I didn't have an appointment and answered my questions about my skin issues.

” 

Annie L.

The doctor even had his staff call my local pharmacy before I left so the prescription was ready when I got there. My rash went away with the prescription in a few days and never came back.

” 

Peter L.

Very professional guy: knowledgeable, and everything you'd want from a dermatologist.

” 

Tony M.

Dr. Fein is knowledgeable, professional, and has a kind disposition. His staff has always been friendly and his office is immaculate. I went to his office three years ago but my insurance changed to Kaiser. As soon as my insurance changed back to a PPO I made an appointment and I am so happy to be back. I highly recommend him.

” 

Kristin H.

Dr. Lance Chapman and his entire staff are amazing. This was my first time to the Seal Beach Office and the experience was fantastic. The office and patient rooms are clean and spotless. There is a "Positive Energy" throughout the entire office, that puts you at ease. I was treated with the utmost respect and professionalism and that is key, when going to see a Doctor. I strongly recommend going to see Dr. Chapman with any of your Dermatology needs!!

Dr Fein was awesome! Even with a glitch of the auto-notification time of my appointment schedule. Dr Fein still took me in, and performed my surgery!

” 

Jeffery B.

Dr. Fein is the consummate professional. Very little wait time, quick diagnosis and treatment with excellent follow up instructions. Dr. Fein is the best!
