Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

Dr. Richards performed a skin exam with care to address my concerns on aging skin, skin tags and a skin irritation I was experiencing. I was so pleased with her detailed exam and our conversation about non-surgical treatment to improve my skin, wrinkles and sagging neck. I had a procedure called UL therapy at a later date and the results are amazing. I know I look better so I'm very pleased. Also at another appointment I had botox and a filler administered; it was not painful nor did I bruise. Her office staff is friendly, knowledgeable about the procedures, accommodating and Todd, her physician assistant, is terrific. He is also kind, gentle and took the time to address any concerns or questions about procedures or results. I highly recommend Dr. Richards and her office for excellent care and amazing results.

Overall Rating

Best all around skin care. Takes the time to listen and gives excellent preventative advice.

Overall Rating

Dr Richards is great- very caring for her patients. I have been going to Torrey Pines Derm since 2006 and I am glad that they are always a trusted resource. I even buy some of their products as I still cannot find replacements that work as well as their lotions!
