Dr. Ofodile is AWESOME!!! The reception was great as soon as I walked in. The receptionist was very warm & friendly, the waiting area was very clean. She took me into the exam room, asked a few questions & before you knew it Dr. Ofodile had come in. She looked at the mole on my face & knew exactly what to do!!! This was my first visit & I have referred a friend already & I'm taking my husband next!!! Thank you so much doctor for making me feel confident again!!! I'm looking forward to my next follow up visit!!!”

This place is fantastic! My son went in with what we thought was reg acne and it ended up being severe cystic acne. They gave us the treatment options and offered the plan as well as timeframe. I asked a lot of questions and they did not lose their patience with me at all. The appointments were clear and I loved that they dedicated actual time to us and that the doctor was not in a rush to get us out but the opposite wanted to make sure we left with no concerns lingering. The staff was considerate, caring, and very professional. We were there for a year and had several appts. I will be back and recommend everyone that asks here. Thanks DESSNA.”

I appreciate the office staff and the  clinical design of the medical building and office.

My 12-year-old son received excellent care from the dermatologist. This was his second visit. Two different doctors, both took a lot of time explaining his options to both of us.  Hopefully this will be his last treatment, but if not, I will certainly return.”

“Dr. Pare' and her assistant were very professional and understanding of my concerns. This was my first time to a dermatologist and I was very pleased. The office was easy to find, very clean, and modern. Will be a reoccurring patient/client.”

I was taken very good care of. Deserae was great. I was nervous and she knew what to say to make me comfortable. She was very knowledgeable and very good at what she does. I felt that I was in good hands and would recommend them to anyone.”

If you live in the Sandy Springs area, then you know there are plenty of indoor and outdoor things to do in the area:

Located in Fulton County, Georgia and a suburb of Atlanta, Sandy Springs is Georgia’s seventh largest city. In 2019, the population was estimated to be 109,452.

The first human settlements can be traced to around 400 CE. Later in the 16th century, the Creek Muskogee tribe moved to the area and lived there until the early 1800s when they were forced out of the area by other settlers after gold was discovered. The oldest existing house called the Austin-Johnson house was built in 1842.

The Sandy Springs Society, the Community Assistance Center, Leadership Sandy Springs, and   Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber are focused on making Sandy Springs a better place for everyone.

We serve all of Sandy Springs zip codes with our dermatology treatments, including 30068, 30328, 30350, 30092, 30338, 30358, 30319, 30339, 31150, 30327, 30342, and 31156.

Read a few of our customer reviews:

"I had a great experience as a first-time patient. Dr. Ofodile and all of the staff were extremely warm and knowledgeable. I will definitely return for a follow-up visit!"

"My daughter was burned as an infant and now as an adult, she has thick scar tissue on her hand. Over the years we have tried and tried to find someone to help her and it’s next to impossible. We went and saw Sam about doing some laser work on my daughter's hand. She was unsure if she could help because of the extent of the scar tissue. She went out of her way to check many places that might be able to help. She put us in touch with a great place that is now going to treat my daughter and they specialize in Burns. If you want someone who is going to take your best interest at heart ask for Sam. We love her."

Frequently Asked Dermatology Questions

On the day of your appointment, make sure your skin is clean and avoid wearing makeup. Make sure to bring a list of current medications and other treatments you’ve tried in the past. Your dermatologist will take a current medical and social history. They’ll ask you questions about current medications, health issues, and whether or not you smoke or drink alcohol.

You may be asked to disrobe and given a hospital gown for a full-body skin exam to check for any suspicious moles or other skin conditions. Regardless, the dermatologist will conduct a thorough skin assessment to make sure nothing is missed.
