I am so glad I found Dr. Korgavkar! She was attentive, empathetic and did not push anything I didn’t want on me. She listened to all my concerns and validated them and provided me with all the options I have, gave me recommendations but let me choose the option I’m most comfortable with. She helped me so much and I really enjoy meeting such a great and caring doctor with excellent bedside manner and knowledge in her field. Highly recommended!

Hands down best Dermatologist!!! I saw her for a cosmetic procedure and had an incredible experience. She’s really sweet and listened to everything I had to say. Totally addressed all my concerns. I’d never gotten any cosmetic work done before so was a little nervous. She made me feel really comfortable and at ease, and I’m really excited for my next visit. I can tell she really enjoys what she does.. she has an artistic eye. I’m really happy with the results 🙂
