5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery
Dr. Blair was very professional and informative of what he was doing.
Dr. Blair and Kathy completed series of VBeam laser treatments on face and YAG laser treatments on nose for redness/broken capillaries. They are very committed to perfected results and will continue treatments until those results are achieved! ALL staff members are GREAT, very professional, friendly and caring. HIGHLY recommend!!!!

Dr. Mark Blair is extremely knowledgeable and listens what you have to say. His collaborative approach and active listening demonstrate superb professionalism. His technician, Kathy Diane Cecchin, makes the whole experience worthwhile. She explains how the laser works and what the laser does to my body in ways I can understand. One thing I liked is she that she explained the strength and diameter of the laser and why she chose those frequencies. Kathy is honest, sincere, and humble. She accommodated me with my busy schedule and delivers results. Bravo!!

I turned to PV Dermatology after seeing another Dermatologist that wanted to do a costly procedure. Dr. Blair suggested doing a laser treatment, which was 100 percent effective and 1/10 of the cost the other Dermatologist was trying to charge. I appreciate all that Dr. Blair and his staff did for me.

I have been a patient at Paradise Valley Dermatology for 10 years. The office is professional, friendly, caring, efficient and punctual. I have NEVER had to wait more than a couple of minutes to receive treatment. Dr. Blair is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of Dermatology, which is comforting as a patient. He holds high standards for patient care, medical knowledge and state-of-the art equipment. Dr. Blair and his staff represent 21st Century healthcare at its finest! His professional care is highly recommended!

5 out of 5 stars Tattoo Removal
Kathy and Dr Blair are phenomenal. Kathy removed my tattoo and gave me chemical peels and an IPL photo facial. She had my skin looking perfect in no time for my wedding. Dr. Blair removed two moles off of my face and I didn't feel a thing and did not even leave a mark on my face. They're truly the best!
4 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
There really isn't a whole lot involved in the process - the Dr just applies the machine & comes back an hour later to remove it. In the meantime, you can read, nap, talk on the phone, etc. But Dr Mark and the nurse, Stephanie were both very friendly, helpful, and willing to answer any questions and make sure I was as comfortable as possible.
