I am extremely pleased by the results of my two IPL treatments. This was my first time getting anything done to my face beyond the normal at home skin care processes so I was a bit hesitant and didn’t know what to expect. From beginning to end, their team coached me through it all and made me feel comfortable throughout and even followed up with me after the treatments. I never imagined my skin could changed for the better as much as it did. To say I was pleasantly surprised, is an understatement. I highly recommend VIP to anyone wanting to improve their skin by a safe, reliable, and caring team of professionals.
Dr. Maryam Hekmat & Vickie her office manager are truly the best! I went to Dr. Hekmat a few years ago as I was quickly approaching my 40’s and wanted a more youthful look. Dr. Hekmat absolutely helped me achieve that goal without looking overdone. Dr. Hekmat was also able to reconstruct an old scar that I had from childhood and make it less visible. I am so happy with the care I have received and would highly recommend her practice.

I have been going to Dr. Hekmat's VIP MedSpa Clinic for a couple of years and she is an excellent doctor. She explains all the procedures, conditions and treatments in detail. She is a good listener and is very kind and patient. Her clinic offers many different services from medical to aesthetics. The front desk personnel is very effective and nice. Vicky and Leslie are both very professional. I highly recommend Dr. Hekmat's VIP MedSpa to everyone for general medicine and for cosmetic services. Her products are excellent too as well as her weight management program.
Dr. Hekmat has been my physician for over ten years. She is a highly educated physician for whom I have a tremendous amount respect. As I am in the medical industry myself I have witnessed many of her peers become apathetic and succumb to the pressures of practicing medicine with only cost control and insurance reimbursement in mind. Dr. Hekmat delivers nothing but the best quality healthcare with the patient's best interest in mind. She is worth every penny you spend if not more.
I can not Thank Dr Hekmat enough for her personalized healthy weight loss approach. She makes me feel like I am her top priority and never rushed. A Dr that listens and provides her personalized knowledge. She accepts clients by word of mouth only. No advertising needed. Got my shopping list for eating healthy and feeling younger and revitalized. MANY MANY THANKS to DR HEKMAT!
Dr Hekmat is very easy to talk to regarding your health, appearance and weight loss struggles. I'm down ten pounds and very happy with the support she has given me!
Dr. Maryam Hekmat is an OUTSTANDING, CARING, PROFESSIONAL, MEDICAL DOCTOR. I would not hesitate to refer friends to her practice.

Maryam Heckmat is wonderful. she made suggestions that would give me the results that I wanted. I have been to other doctors, and once I found Dr. Heckmat, I will always return to her for any future services. This was my second visit. I would refer her to others.

Dr. Hekmat is knowledgeable, caring and kind. I can tell that she is truly passionate about her work and her patients' well-being.
Dr. Hekmat is hands down the best doctor I have ever had. She always makes you feel comfortable and never rushes through an appointment like most doctors I have worked with in the past. She takes the time to get to know you and what works best for you!

Dr. Hekmat took time to explain the procedure. Dr. Hekmat made sure I would get the results I wanted. I have already had a co worker ask me, what have you done? You look 10 years younger. Thank you Dr. Hekmat.
Dr. Hekmat is the best! She is spot on with every diagnosis! I highly recommend her!

She is one the most knowledgable doctor I have ever met , always listen to your concern and come up with best solution. She is just the best.
Every appointment that I have had with Dr. Maryam Hekmat has been a wonderful experience. She spends as much time (more) to make sure all of your questions and concerns are answered in full. I would only go to her office, as I am always very satisfied.

Dr. Hekmat is an excellent doctor. She's been my primary care physician for over 8 years. She's thorough, takes her time with your visit, makes sure you understand what she's telling you, is personalble, and genuinely cares about your wellbeing.
Dr. Hekmat is very thorough. She cares about me, I trust her, I follow her instructions to a T. She has been my doctor for over 5 years & never made a mis-diagnosis. When she sends me to a specialist they always comment on what a good doctor she is.

Working in the healthcare industry I see how patients are rushed through the system. Dr Maryam Hekmat, as busy as she is always treats me as if I was a family member or friend. I can tell that she really cares about my well being. 5 stars all the way!
I have been struggling with my weight for years and for the first time in as long as I can remember and am now obese. I have "hope" that I can be healthy, fit and slim. I've taken the first step. Thank you Dr. Hekmat for not judging me but guiding me.

Dear Dr. Hekmat,
I just want to send you a note to say “Thank You“ for being such a wonderful Physician. I am disappointed that you are leaving your practice, but I can assure you that you have made the right decision. Having been a mother myself, you will never regret your decision to change your career to spent more time with your family. Children grow up very quickly and you can never recapture those years with them. Wishing you all the best on your new path.
I would like to thank you for your continued support and Kindness as my doctor as well as sharing your beautiful daughter’s and your family pictures each Christmas. It really warms my heart. Also I wanted to extend my help in any way with your new office move. Thanks again and God bless you and your family.
Thank you for saving my life, for your care and compassion, for “Always having my back”. I will miss you so much.
After receiving your letter today, It was such a shock and disappointment to learn we would not be able to have an appointment before you leave. Ed, my mother and I have been blessed to have you as our doctor. You have been such a help to us -both for our own health, but also in the care of my mother. We do not look forward to changing doctors, and would appreciate knowing if you are going to work elsewhere and would be accepting patients. We do want to wish you all the best as you dedicate yourself as a mother-there is no higher calling and you will be rewarded. We will miss you.
-Ed and Sandra T.

Dear Dr. Hekmat,
Your patients will miss you , but I am sure your family is very pleased about your decision to spend more time with them. I want to thank you for years of professional care and advice which have helped me live independently into my 80s. Best wishes for a happy ,rewarding new life for you and your family.

Hi Dr. Hekmat, Will think of you often solving all my medical problems. You were always “on the mark”. Thank you, Thank you. I know you will succeed in your new adventure.
Feb. 23, 2014 Dear Dr. Hekmat, It is with regret that I read that you will be leaving Scripps, But fully understand and agree that the needs of a young family must be accommodated and come first in your priorities, I feel fortunate to have been one of your patients these past years and have appreciated the intelligent and compassionate care you have given to me through my geriatric years. Thank you and the very best of wishes in whatever you choose to do for the future.
Thank you very much for letting me know about your career change. I am glad for you and wish you all the best in your new endeavors and in the same time, I am sorry to see you go. I will miss you. You are one of the few doctors that I really admire. Your simple solutions and explanations are something to admire. Not very many people have a sense of simplicity in solving potential problems. I am sure that where ever you go and whatever you will do, it will be a success because you really care for people and your patients. Good luck to you.
Thank you for all your personal attention and time you have given me. You are a wonderful person and doctor which is very rare to find these days. Again, thank you. I really appreciate all you do for me.

Dear Dr. Hekmat,
Just a short note of thanks for everything you have accomplished with me, my health and my entire life. You’ve been such a wonderful and caring physician that I’m sure will probably never come into my life ever again. For years, I struggled and lived in such a magnitude of pain and discomfort. Much much greater than most ever experience at such a young age! Eventually, our connection as doctor to patient opened up a much brighter and favorable lifestyle for me as well as my family. I truly found a peaceful and pleasurable lifestyle that brought on such wonderful moments and certainly much needed relief! Certainly all the attributes a good physician should possess. Your attentive demeanor and thorough prognosis always gave me the best care and the greatest opportunities to succeed in better health and an understanding to healthcare in its entirety!
Again, I can’t thank you enough for all the kind and wonderful care you’ve always provided me and my family. You are a true asset to what a physician and great healthcare is really all about!
Dr Hekmat completed a physical on Nikki which included blood in urine test. At that time we found out that Nikki was diabetic. It was at that time that reality sunk in with Nikki and that something had to be done not only on her weight but for her diabetes as well.
Dr Hekmat put Nikki on a regiment of Medifast and gave her a calorie count that she must not go over. She also gave her some medication to help. She promised Nikki that if she stuck with this plan she would not only lose weight she would also not be diabetic. Nicki went from 203 pounds to 135 pounds in 7 months. Nicki went from a size 17 to a size 6.
During this time Nikki had also hired a trainer at a gym who worked with her twice a week.
Dr Hekmat was more than a doctor that gave Nikki a plan to follow. She became an advocate and a friend to Nikki and someone that she could trust during this regiment.
As her weight dropped her whole demeanor changed. She felt good about herself and became secure about her body which made her mentally stronger. She is no longer depressed. And she is no longer diabetic. I would recommend Dr Hekmat to anyone that is very serious about losing weight and that has failed at other diets. Dr Hekmat is just not about preparing a plan for you to lose weight. She also understands the effect that being overweight affects you mentally and emotionally.
Please give Dr Hekmat a chance. You will not be sorry.

Dr. Maryam Hekmat has been my doctor (and my parents doctor) for over 10 years. I followed her from Scripps Clinic to her private practice at VIP MedSpa Clinic. She is truly amazing! She is incredibly knowledgeable and is a no nonsense type of person. She is super sweet and caring! And I love that she tries and/or backs everything that she presents to you as an option for what you are asking about/for. She does the research and makes sure its sound and is something she would use, try, recommend for herself or for her own family members. I am so lucky she came into my life.
