"Welcome to Dermatology Solutions, where we treat patients like family!"
"Dr. Amin is one of the best doctors I have consulted. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, she is also very kind, concerned and informed. Her caring attitude is very relaxing and no matter the diagnosis, you come out of her consultation room feeling like a winner. Wish there were more like her in this profession."
"Great staff, nice office, great doctor! So glad I found this place. Medical issues first without pushing a cosmetic agenda. Very knowledgeable, and I found her manner to be relaxed and refreshingly pleasant. I have dreaded going to the dermatologist for dealing with the "Let's talk beauty.." crowd. While her office offers a full range of services, they don't push beauty over wellness. Thank you! After all, beauty starts on the inside and if you don't feel good you don't look good."

"I've visited Dr. Amin with 5 of my children. She has treated us all with kindness and genuine care. She's made some painful procedures bearable with humor and love (a little anesthesia didn't hurt either). Her staff and the office are all polite and very professional. I even signed up for my own visit which I rarely do. She's very knowledgeable about dermatology but even more, she has a great heart. We are lucky to have her so close and a part of our community."
