Reviews for San Francisco, CA Dermatologist Dr. Kathleen Welsh
"I must say, my new skincare routine has changed my skin entirely. For more than two decades, I tried every doctor in both LA and San Francisco and cream/treatment and was told it was something I had to live with. Dr. Welsh's recommendations have 98% cleared up the eczema and flakiness. I think it’s the Face Retin-A cream, but not even sure. I am sticking to the exact routine/program every morning and night that Dr Welsh assigned. It has changed my life."
"After having two children and before Emsella I could literally not run .Each time I tried, I would literally “wet my pants” .My OB/GYN suggested surgery, but I thought I’d give Emsella a try. After 6 sessions I am dry as a bone after running and can even do jumping jacks without embarrassing leakage. My sex life has also improved. I am so grateful to Bay Area Dermatology and Dr. welsh for suggesting the treatment. It was painless and very discreet. (45 year old female)"
"Dear Dr. Welsh - Thank you so much for popping in to see me today. It is always so great to see you. You have such a positive energy! Also - you look really fantastic! You look radiant, beautiful and natural. And you are the best advertisement for your practice. I completely trust anything you advise for me. Thank you again! Thank you again! Fondly, Anonymous"
"I have been going to Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology for the last ten years. I am continually impressed by both Dr Welsh and Dr Hui for their ability to listen to my needs and desires without judgement, address cosmetic issues artfully, and manage medical issues with great knowledge and expertise. Their ability to integrate both the art and science of dermatology is truly exceptional. Our entire family has been treated by the practice. My children for extreme acne and stubborn allergic skin reactions, my husband with his sensitive Asian skin for his sun spots and I have had multiple moles skillfully removed and biopsied, Ulthera, botox, fillers and even repaired earlobes, (torn from heavy earnings). Coming from a family of physicians, I have learned the importance of quality of care and true medical expertise. We have all been impressed by their responsiveness, depth of knowledge, attention to detail and overall quality of care. I have referred many to this practice and have heard nothing but stellar reviews."
"Several of my friends had suggested going to Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology so I decided to give them a call. I spoke with Johanan who was able to make my tricky schedule work and even remembered speaking to me on the phone when I came in (it seems like a pretty busy place, so I was pleasantly surprised by that). I became a patient of Dr. Hui several months ago and am so glad I made the choice to get treatment for my skin with her! Dr. Hui was gracious, understanding and answered all of my many questions. My most recent visit was to remove a few moles and to correct dark circles under my eyes. Dr. Hui did outstanding work removing a flesh tone mole on the bridge of my nose and had bothered me since childhood. She walked me through the various stages of the healing process so I knew exactly what to expect. I am very happy with the beautiful results! I would highly recommend both Dr Hui and Dr. Welsh (who I had met once when I tagged along to a friend's appointment). Both are amazing women that take the time to get to know their patients. At the end of my visit I had a little redness from my treatment and was introduced to Natalie at the makeup counter. She was very nice and knowledgeable, and in just a few minutes had fixed me up and you could barely tell that I had done anything to my face (except for the little bandage on my nose). It really feels like a place filled with people you could be friends with, everyone was warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology to anyone"
"Dr Welsh has been my favorite dermatologist for over 20 years - I'm pretty sure she is the reason I don't have skin cancer from my careless youth ;) She (and her staff) always make me feel good when I am there and I get great results w everything I've tried (including fillers). Kathleen Welsh is a perfectionist and a true artist! Dr Welsh knows my style (she knows I don't want to look "over done") and gives (on request) great advice for what I really need (instead of what I thought I needed) often saving me $$. I trust her completely (based on 2 decades of stellar results)! I was introduced to Dr Welsh by a product rep friend (it's part of her job to know everybody in the industry) as a wonderful person and excellent doctor. I have always been glad of every visit! In response to another reviewer: a couple of times a few years ago I had waits of up to a half hour, but I always just guessed my doctor was giving someone else the precise meticulous care that she gives me. (There were a few prior visits that Dr Welsh spent extra time burning off my way-too-many pre-cancer spots; apologies if your wait was my fault!). Lately, I'm in and out before I can read a single magazine article. Recently I tried her cleansing pads while camping - who knew you could get refreshed glowing skin w/out water? I'm one of those people who breaks out if I miss cleansing morning or night, so these are little gems. Honestly, I cannot lavish enough praise on Dr Welsh (and her staff) for excellent care and great results! I'm pretty sure Dr Welsh really does love skin!"
