Everyone here is wonderful and competent.*
Dr. Swengel and his staff were very professional and I completely trust them. I had a dark acne mark on my cheek and with a spot treatment of TCL. Voila! It’s gone and has not returned!*
Okay, seriously, this is THE BEST DERMATOLOGIST out here in the Bay area. I have been to 4 other doctors who told me that my condition needed surgery. One month with Dr. Swengel and he fixed the issue and I didn’t even need surgery. Now I am completely healed. I cannot say enough about him. The staff was very friendly and prompt. Wait times weren’t long at all.Way to go Dr. Swengel!*
I have found my new “forever” dermatologist and wouldn’t consider ever going to anyone else again. I feel confident that I am in the best, most knowledgeable, caring, competent hands possible.*
Dr Swengel is super patient and never in a rush. He seems like just a great person you can talk to about anything.*
I had a major skin emergency and they got in me within the hour. They are definitely a ‘zero attitude’ place. They made me feel comfortable… I am an esthetician so I knew exactly what I wanted going in. He solved my problem the same way I would and even one uped me! Very very impressed. Thank you guys so much.!*
He is knowledgable, professional and genuinely interested in what I want.*
Sashah is … warm and professional as is everyone in the office.*
Every time I have the pleasure to visit Refined Dermatology, I feel uplifted and extremely impressed with the customer service, attention to detail, products, technology and new innovation with skincare treatments, and most of all the kindness displayed by the staff as a whole. I'm grateful to have found such a gem of an establishment that has the expertise, the look/feel, and the overall satisfaction I feel each and every time I'm finished with treatment. Thank you!!*
The lady who picked up the phone was VERY friendly, knowledgable and attentive.*
I will continue to go back to Dr. Swengel where I have been treated well by everyone in the office, and I feel he is a very competent and experienced doctor. Eric, his assistant, who was very warm, helpful and informative.*

Great doctor. One visit and he cured my skin problem that has bothered me for several years. I have seen other doctors before but no one would be able to fix the problem. Highly recommended.*
Overall, Dr. Swengel and his staff were very professional and I completely trust them.*

My daughter and I were both very pleased with the office visit. Her skin has improved so much since coming in. The whole staff were great very friendly and informative.*
Very caring staff all around.*
Refined Dermatology changed my life completely! They fixed my skin which every other dermatologist said would take months, in under a month. Their products and treatments work great and the service is wonderful. They are great with last minute call in appointments and are always happy and courteous to the patients. I would recommend Refined Dermatology to anyone and everyone without any hesitation!*
Very knowledgeable, professional, and caring.*
This place has it all – fantastic doctor, wonderful esthetician, very pleasant staff.*
The dr walked in – big smile, personable, considerate, knowledgeable and professional!… his office manager Eric is also fabulous- personable, considerate and genuine!*
My skin has honestly never looked this amazing (and I have acne-rosacea). I finally don’t have to hide behind thick foundations and can throw on a light coverage tinted moisturizer and some mascara and lip gloss and look/feel super confident and beautiful in my new skin!*
Dr. Swengel sets the bar in medicine and cosmetic procedures.*
He is such an ethical, compassionate doctor! Very patient oriented, and highly recommended!*
So appreciate Dr. Swengel and his team’s ease of scheduling, warm bedside manner, followup and interest in my overall well-being.*

I trust Dr Swengel and his team. I have multiple BCCs on my back and feel that Dr. Swengel should be more thorough in examining my back.. There are many places on my back that I cannot see properly.*
