"Dr. Evans and her team are the best! I am only 32 and recently found out that I had a Basal Cell skin cancer on my face. Dr. Evans immediately put me at ease and explained every step of the of the Mohs Surgery that she would perform to remove it. She is an expert in that procedure and I am so thankful, because after further research I found out that Mohs is the most accurate way to remove the cancer cells and leaves the least amount of scarring. Even though Basal Cell Carcinoma is a very minor form of skin cancer, it can be a stressful thing to go through and Dr. Evans was phenomenal! In addition, her office is pristine, and her administrative team is friendly, efficient, and organized. Her medical assistants and nurses also make you feel incredibly comfortable. Anytime I have questions about products like sunscreen, moisturizers, etc they have given me some great recommendations and samples...but I have never felt pressure to buy anything that I don't want. I love that this practice is the perfect blend of skilled medical dermatology expertise, but pays attention to what we are all looking for cosmetically as well."
"Lauren is awesome! Went back for my second Botox treatment from her and she nailed it once again. Turned 50 this week! Love her skill!"
"Love the entire team at the San Francisco office! Lauren is amazing. She helped me get ride of adult acne that has troubled me for years. Bonus: The front desk staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable."
"I feel extremely fortunate to have found Dr. Evans. She is on every potential skin cancer and has found issues others have ignored. She is through and highly professional. Dr. Evans recently saw both of my teenage sons on short notice to accommodate their school schedules. She was approachable and positive with them. She and the staff provided a very upbeat experience. I recommend her highly for all ages."
"Everyone was super welcoming, answered my questions thoroughly and I felt like this is a place where I can bring all my skin issues to be solved, jackpot!"
