Since the age of 5 no doctor or dermatologist has never been able to tell me why my hair goes threw a vicious cycle of only growing up to 3 inches and falling out every year. So this time I prayed and Jehovah directed me to the right dermatologist, Viba. Her and all her staff are very kind, honest, good at listening and respectful. They're not judgemental, but they are very professional. I had to go out far to get these services. In the 3 months I've been, my hair hasn't sled or fell out once. And I was diagnosed with 2 different types of Alopecia and short hair syndrome. My hair is full and growing. May Jehovah contine to provide these services to me and continue to bless my dermatologist Viba Malaiyandi, MD hands as well as her staff and all the hairs on my head.

Dr. Malaiyandi is a great and compassionate dermatologist, who was the first doctor, I had seen, that considered psoriasis as the underlying cause of my skin problems.
