A dermo for the entire family – From Acne to Melanoma!

My kids, my wife, and I all see Dr. Sivanesan. Because I’ve had so much interaction with her, I have comments in a few categories: She’s very personable. She explains her proposed treatments, including why and what to expect. She’s done a great job getting my kids skin to clear up. On me she diagnosed and removed a melanoma. She called me personally when the biopsy came back positive, and gave me plenty of time to ask questions. She also offered that I could call her with any additional questions. Melanoma can be nasty stuff, and I could tell that she wanted to give me all the facts, without freaking me out. (My melanoma was very shallow, with a low probability of it spreading — but that’s not what I would have taken away if I just got my info from Google.) My surgery was 8 months ago, and the scar has healed up very nicely. There was one time when I had a long wait in the office. The receptionist came out and apologized, explained that the Dr. was running late, and offered to reschedule anyone who could come back later in the day. A few folks took the offer, but I didn’t. When I went in for my exam, the assistant and the Dr. apologized for the inconvenience. That’s the *only* time that I’ve every gotten an apology from a Dr. for making me wait.. And I thought that the office handled it well: They were behind schedule and did something about it (by offering to reschedule) rather than just have everyone sit there and wait.


Dr. Sivanesan was very thorough and knowledgeable. She was able to explain the diagnosis in an understandable fashion. She spent time to answer all of my questions.

Fantastic dermatologist

As a professional healthcare provider, I highly recommend Dr. Sivanesan. She is competent, efficient, extremely knowledgable and provides high quality care with compassion and wonderful interpersonal skills. For the first time in the past 10 years my rosacea is completely under control and being appropriately managed. With prescription facial cleanser and medication in conjunction with easily obtained and basic over the counter recommended products, my complexion and skin tone have also greatly improved. I have not hesitated to recommend her to my familiy and friends.

Thorough, cordial, knowledgeable, sets a fine example to a very well-managed staff.I had used the services of two other dermatologists previously; what a difference! She began with a COMPLETE exam, dictating her observations to an assistant who entered the info into a software. This established a baseline against which future exams were measured. The only other thing I will mention is that I am not usually given to this kind of enthusiastic review, simply because I rarely have such a positive experience.

I have been struggling with acne for years. I have tried multiple treatments and medications, but nothing has worked. My first visit with Dr. Sivanesan was fantastic. She was confident and helpful. Furthermore, she took my on-the-go lifestyle into account and gave me treatment tips that fit me. So far the treatments have gone well. Hope to see more success in the future!
