Despite scathing reviews about wait times and rude staff, I decided to give the office a chance, After one hour (!) in the waiting room with a miserable four year old, we were taken to an exam room. A lady came in the exam room to get something and didnt even acknowledge us (didn't look in our direction). After five more minutes or so, I let my antsy daughter begin drawing on the paper on the exam bench she was sitting on. The lady came back and proceeded to tell me to stop my daughter from drawing on the paper. Her tone and look were extremely hostile. I had no problem with whatever office rules they had about the paper (however I had the idea of drawing on the paper because our primary care physician actually encourages such drawing during appointments to keep the child occupied) but I was really stunned that we had waited over an hour with no apology or explanation and then she came in with no greeting at all but rather went after my sick four year old. So I gently said we had waited over an hour and my daughter was very young. The woman said nothing and didn't look at me. I asked her if she had no comment about the wait time, and she said ""everybody's having to wait."" I asked her if she didn't want to apologize for the long wait time, and she shrugged and said ""its not my fault."" She was so rude that we left, and I asked for a refund and the Dr. to call me. I was told I would get a check in the mail. I have received no phone call and no refund. I have never walked out of an appointment (or posted a negative review) before, but it was a ridiculous waste of my time. My daughter missed school for nothing, and I had to pay a babysitter to watch my infant while we were there. And the Dr. had no interest in hearing my complaint, which I think shows an absolute lack of concern for his patients.

Today's appointment has left me angry enough to leave a negative review, which normally I do not do. I have seen Dr. Zelaya a few times. The wait is always long (1-2 hours), which is normal for most doctors. They do book several people for the same time, though, so don't be surprised to hear someone walk in saying ""I have a 2pm appointment with Dr. Zelaya."" when you also have a 2pm appointment with him. I get it, though - if someone does not show up, they lose money and have staff, bills, etc. to pay. However, they book too many people for the same time slot often. And the billing clerk is rude. I wanted to pay with American Express, they do not accept it. Okay, I'll pay with CareCredit - no, they do not accept that as payment for ""just"" office visits. So I paid with Visa. The billing clerk walks me to the exam room and clearly she is annoyed. She fixes the exam table but leaves without a word. Dr. Zelaya tries to keep the appointment to just 5-10 minutes max (if you're lucky). He recommended a treatment last Fall for an ongoing problem I'm having, said if it continues, let's do it next time. I was there today for the ""next time"" and he kept telling me to schedule an appointment for the treatment, which is just an allergy test. I kept trying to get it done today, but he would not do it. The technician/nurse is great, and she talked with me more than Dr. Zelaya. He's nice enough, but I would like the problem resolved or treated, not to keep taking different prescriptions. I will not be going back to him again. If you just need a prescription, then maybe he's your man. Otherwise, keep looking.

I have been visiting this doctor for almost a year now, and I never had a chance to comment on his service. After yesterdays treament , no matter how horrible my day to day went, It seems being there at skinworks makes me forget how bad my day is. I always leave happy from this doctor. I look great, I feel great, and everyone agrees.
great place , great skin doctor I highly recommend, he is a skin doctor , and very professional of his service , they took care of me in a flash , I went for the a tattoo removal and was very fast , and I had some facial hair removal done at the same time . doctor Zelaya keep up the good work you are fabulous , and maria the aesthetician team she is great .

I went to see Maria Sierra, the aesthetician @ Skinworks to get my back waxed. What I received was nothing short of amazing. Maria made this a very painless experience her calming words and relaxing atmosphere made it a joy to have my back waxed. I have been getting my back waxed for the past 20 years and for my money Maria by far is the best aesthetician I have ever went to. I highly recommend her.

I've been to several places to get my eyebrows waxed from the neighborhood nail salon's to high end spas, but nowhere compares to Maria's skills at skinworks. She is both personable and gentle and really knows how to shape eyebrows to make them look there best. I highly recommend her!!!

This doctor is a scam!! Worst experience i ever had. I didn't visited this doctor just once i went there about 5 times! Every time i come in 5-10 min earlier my appointment time, and never been taken on time! Had to wait at least an hour every single time. The receptionist was always rude, as well as doctors assistant. When i get to the room another 15 minutes of wait and then 5 min with doctor who seem like been rushing somewhere and not giving me enough attention.
On my last appointment i told doctor all this and guess what? he didn't even care, he said ""Yep, Don't Like it find another doctor"" WHAT?!
WORST DOCTOR EVER!!
