"Regarding the CO2 laser procedure that you performed on me, it was a great success and I am extremely happy with the results."
Dr Groff, Just wanted to give you an update regarding the CO2 laser procedure that you performed on me. It was a great success and I am extremely happy with the results. Healing process was as expected. Some swelling, a thin white film, then scabbing, and finally now all the scabs are gone and there is no trace of what was there before!
I thank you and your staff for your professionalism and for the great service that you provided. As a pharmacist, I encounter many patients who ask about procedures and doctors to recommend. I have looked into all the procedures that you perform and you will be on the top of my list when it comes down to referrals. Thank you once again... I feel that it was money well spent getting that done! Oh and I had no problems at all meeting with my girlfriend in Vegas last weekend :-)
"I have gained more confidence and I feel great. You did an awesome job."
Dr. Groff, I just wanted to thank you for all you did for me. About 10 days ago, I saw you at the Lancaster office for PPP removal. I'm very happy with the results. I have gained more confidence and I feel great. You did an awesome job. Thank you.
Hello Dr. Groff. I was your patient a few weeks ago for the PPP treatment. I would just like to say I had magnificent results! No scarring, it is as if I never had them! So thank you for that, I no longer feel embarrassed. Thank you.
“As a man you can appreciate what this all means to me.”
Dr. Groff, I want to thank you once again for your professionalism and care. I'm sure as a man you can appreciate what this all means to me. I have felt very little discomfort and I am thrilled with my PPP removal result. I am so much looking forward the confidence that this will grant me for the rest of my life. Thank you.
“Couldn't be more happier with the PPP treatment results.”
Things are going well and I couldn't be more happier with the PPP treatment results. Again, I can't begin to thank you for everything you've done... besides... YOU'RE THE MAN!
“Dr. Groff, you are a man's man!”
Dr. Groff, you are a man's man! Never thought I would say that I enjoyed our conversation during my PPP treatment. I can't say enough how much I am thankful for you and your staff.
“Having my papules removed has really improved my overall confidence.”
I would also just like to say that having my papules removed has really improved my overall confidence. I was really stressed taking the trip down to San Diego by myself, but felt like it was something I had to do. I can now say I'm very happy and proud of myself for going though with this. I would like to thank you for being so understanding and helpful. Also Courtney was great and made me feel really comfortable with the whole process. I can't thank you guys enough!
“I was really happy with the results and will definitely be back!”
Went to Dr Groff after seeing him on The Doctors T.V. program. This was the 1st time I ever had anything done and so we went over the procedure and I felt really comfortable that he knew exactly what I wanted and crystal clear on what to expect. I was really happy with the results and will definitely be back !
“So many others could not help me, then I found you and got real results.”
Hi Dr. Groff. Congratulations! Happy to hear the good news that you won San Diego's Best of contest. I already knew you were the best, now everyone else knows too. So many others could not help me. Then I found you and got real results. Thank you.
“I feel so much more confident in public”
Dr. Groff injected Botox into my underarms for my hyperhidrosis and I love it. I feel so much more confident in public and will definitely come see Dr. Groff for more Botox in the future!
“While there is no cure (presently, anyway) for rosacea, Dr. Groff's masterful application of the laser has contributed immeasurably to its amelioration. He personifies the best of cosmetic dermatology!”
I originally came to Goldman, Butterwick, Groff, Fabi & Wu back when Dr. Fitzpatrick was a part of that very talented team (now known as Cosmetic Laser Dermatology). I had always considered Dr. Fitzpatrick to be the "guru" of laser procedures. Sadly, he is no longer with us. As I desired to remain a patient of this practice, I began an "in-house search" so that I might continue the V-Beam laser treatments for my rosacea. My inquiries always seemed to guide me in the direction of Dr. Groff. As I would learn after my first appointment, it was an excellent choice! While there is no cure (presently, anyway) for rosacea, Dr. Groff's masterful application of the laser has contributed immeasurably to its amelioration. I look forward to his continued ministrations, including future PDT with red and blue light, and possible fillers where applicable. He personifies the best of cosmetic dermatology!
Dr Groff and his assistant Isabel offered me an exceptional service. From the moment I met them I was confident that I was in expert hands; and I was not wrong. Gracias for everything.
"Top notch world class service!"
Top notch world class service! Thanks Dr. Goff and Isabel for letting me stare into your assisant's eyes for 6 minutes. It really helped as you lasered my chest in the laser room. I am a big fan of getting lasered on my chest. I coulda sworn laser was spelled with a 'z'. Lazer. Funny word...
"Friendly & Patient"
Dr. Groff is friendly and patient with the many questions I had at the start of
our multi-session treatment. I've had a few different procedures done here by
him, and I often recommend him to other people. The office is clean, and the
staff and nurses are very friendly. Highly recommended!
"Top 10% of his Field"
Dr. Groff is very knowledgeable and is probably in the top 10% of his field. I
had my arms and face done and I can say it's the best results I have ever seen
and I didn't break the bank to do it. I would think this is the best place you
can get dermatology work in California and perhaps the nation.
"Nice and Helpful"
I have visited Cosmetic Laser dermatology to treat my acne scars and I was seen
by Dr. Groff who was so nice and helpful. He suggested the V beam and Fraxel
laser for me and he was so informative and explained everything for me. I had my
first session with him last month and it was wonderful and I'm so eager to get
my next session soon.
"Dr. Groff showed that he cared, he educated me"
I just want to take the time to say THANK YOU Dr. Groff!! He has done amazing
work. Just at the beginning of my treatments, but I am already satisfied with
the results. Let's just say being African American I have very sensitive skin,
it has been hard for me to find a doctor that was able to take care of my
folliculitis, so over the years my skin has taken many hits with those playing
"Doctor" with laser treatments and skin regiments, as a result over the years my
skin has become very think damaged. I am glad to say that the Laser he has used
has been very beneficial. He was knowledgeable about my treatment and the
effectiveness. I wanted all this stuff done, but he did a good job at "keeping
it real" to not further damage my skin. Dr. Groff showed that he cared, he
educated me that although I want quick results, for the best benefit I need to
take baby steps, I believe he couldn't have been more right. I believe once I
get further treatments I will post a picture. I do highly recommend Laser
Dermatology for any African American that is suffering from hair growth on their
face especially women, because our face is everything, and our introduction to
life. Without it we can't have the necessary confidence to grow.
"Dr.Groff is amazing!"
I had under eye fillers done and had little to no bruising, takes his time does not rush like other providers when doing fillers. Offers different option and cares for his patients.Dr.Groff is amazing! Strongly recommend.
"Dr. Groff was wonderful, truly a class act."
I was well-informed after my consultation and felt confident in Dr. Groff's treatment plan. Dr. Groff was wonderful, truly a class act. Thank you very much!
"Dr. Groff is not only extremely professional but so down to earth and kind."
Thank you Dr. Groff and CLD! I was extremely happy with my experience. Dr. Groff is not only extremely professional but so down to earth and kind. His medical assistants were empathetic and awesome as well! They seem to really get along with Dr. Groff which is awesome to see and help to make your treatment comfortable for you! (I loved that they tapped my shoulder as a distraction so cute and it works) He was not pushing any unnecessary products (which I hate) and did wonderful and thorough work! I have my own skin care clinic and have been searching for a Dr. I can refer my clients to for all medical treatments (such as injectables) that I do not offer at my spa. Dr. Groff is a Board Certified Dermatologist and I trust in him! I will definitely be sending my clients over! Thank you so much.
I had my first treatment for my acne scars and the process went very smoothly! I sat in a calming room for an hour waiting for the numbing cream to fully activate and then Dr.Groff's staff assisted me to where the treatment would actually take place. The procedure itself was very quick; it stung very very little and at the end I was left with just a little redness. Like a small sunburn. It's been about 6 weeks and I am going back for my second treatment. Can't wait for the results. I see a small change, my scars were mild, but it will take about 4-6 treatments depending on how the healing goes. The office is clean and the people are friendly. They are also very military friendly! Highly recommended!
"Your work is always amazing. I am super pleased with my results!"
Great job, Dr. Groff - your work is always amazing! You are so professional and kind. I just got done seeing you for the second time and I was not disappointed. The first time, in June, you performed an IPL, V-beam, and Alexandrite laser on my face which got rid of my broken capillaries, dark spots, and uneven skin tone: I am super pleased with my results! A few days ago, you used the V-beam on my chest and neck for redness and broken capillaries due to too much sun exposure growing up in sunny San Diego - thank-you for your work! And Carrie, your nurse, is great too! I appreciate her warm and "down-to-earth" demeanor...thank-you!
"Dr. Groff was very knowledge and the staff was very helpful."
I had a great experience with Dr. Groff and the staff at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology. It was my first visit to a cosmetic laser business and they made me feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Groff was very knowledge and the staff was very helpful. I look forward to going again!
"Dr Groff seems like he really REALLY wants it to be PERFECT...and so far it has been."
The office is beautiful. Dr Groff has given me a Restylane nose job and filled in my under eye ditches. Today we zapped all my face veins. The assistant Isabel is wonderful. She is sweet, funny and makes it a bit easier. Dr Groff seems like he really REALLY wants it to be perfect....and so far it has been. You will get results here.
"I will be patient of his forever!"
Can't even begin to go into how amazing Dr. Groff is! I have been going to him for a few years now and my skin looks incredible! I will be patient of his forever! Don't trust anybody else! The staff and all the doctors and very sweet and kind!
"Dr. Goff was very kind and knowledgeable."
Today I had a consultation with Dr. Goff for laser treatment. My whole experience was professional, friendly and supportive. The assistant Michelle made me feel very comfortable, answering all my questions and Dr. Goff was very kind and knowledgeable. Can't wait to return for my treatment!
"He is an outstanding physician and has amazing bedside manners."
I have been seeing Dr. Groff for IPL, tattoo removal, filler and Botox and I absolutely love working with him. He is an outstanding physician and has amazing bedside manners. I am extremely pleased with the results and I cannot recommend him and the clinic enough.
"Fell in love with the staff and Dr. Groff"
I saw Dr. Groff because I had extremely bad acne and acne scaring. I started with my free consultation about a year ago and fell in love with the staff and Dr. Groff. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. They make you feel so comfortable. It's even more welcoming to know that the staff has had the procedures here; they share their experiences and it eases the nervousness. I have had the PDT and two fraxel procedures and my skin looks so amazing! It's unrecognizable! I definitely would recommend Dr. Groff to anyone, for any thing! Definitely a customer for life.
"I can't say enough about Dr.Groff. If you want the best in lasers go see doctor Groff. You won't be sorry."
I am very impressed with cosmetic laser dermatology and would recommend them to family and friends. From the moment I walked in to the last minutes before I left, the staff was courteous and helpful. From the secretary who checked me in and gave me free samples, to the medical assistant who was by my side reassuring me. I felt confident and comfortable the entire time. I can't say enough about Dr.Groff. Not only is he the Very best at what he does. He is professional yet approachable. He has over 16 years of experience and his bedside manor is finely tuned. He was patient with me and took the time to answer ALL my questions and concerns. I never felt rushed. He has a great sense of humor which helped ease my nerves. At one point I needed to speak further with him and he promptly came back to my room to go over information again. The produce was quick and easy and relatively painless. Nurses were by my side the entire time ensuring my comfort. They did thorough post care education with me and sent me on my way with everything I needed to take care of myself at home. I received a follow up phone call the next day to check on my progress. I had something come up and had to change my appointment time and they were kind and flexible. I am looking forward to my post op visit with dr.Groff and interested in pursuing other treatments. If you want the best in lasers go see doctor Groff. You won't be sorry. And just a tidbit of advice. If you are having a same day procedure make sure to bring a hat/sunglasses because you could leave red or slightly swollen.
"He is extremely skilled and meticulous in his treatments."
I would highly recommend Dr. Groff for any cosmetic enhancements or any cosmetic dermatologic treatments. He is extremely skilled and meticulous in his treatments. He obviously takes great pride in his work and wants to ensure you're pleased with your results. I am very pleased with the results...
"Dr. Groff listened carefully to my concerns, and together we decided on a course of action. I appreciate Dr. Groff's forthright manner and his honesty."
I had a beyond-fabulous experience with this practice. I consulted with Dr. Groff regarding my concerns about sun damage on my arms, hands, chest, and face. Additionally, I was concerned about fine lines and loss of volume in my face. Dr. Groff listened carefully to my concerns, and together we decided on a course of action. I appreciate Dr. Groff's forthright manner and his honesty. He is professional and empathetic, and never once did I feel self-conscious. I am only 4-days post-procedure, and am thrilled with the results that are beginning to reveal themselves. I have also gotten a lot of compliments on the injections Dr. Groff did to relieve loss of volume in my cheeks and nasolabial folds. The results look natural! I can't wait to see how the results continue to develop over the course of the next few weeks and months. I researched a multitude of practices before having decided on this one. I'm so impressed with Dr. Groff, the entire staff, and the practice in general. They are all a class-act!
"I highly recommend booking with Dr. Groff for any of your services."
I can not say enough great things about this office! The staff and all of the Dr.s are incredibly professional and personable. I am always so pleased with my results. I highly recommend booking with Dr. Groff for any of your services. This place is perfection.
“Dr Groff is leading derm on laser technology and came highly recommended.”
Dr Groff is leading derm on laser technology and came highly recommended. One IPL treatment resulted in phenomenal results with eliminating facial brown spots. Very happy. Highly recommend.
“I love DR Groff! He is simply the best in laser removal for sunspots.”
I love DR Groff! I came here all the way from Beverly Hills because he is simply the best in laser removal for sunspots. I am really sad I don't live closer :(
His bedside manner is on point and his assistant is sweet and amazing. I came for one treatment to remove this sunspot and several others popping up on my face and he helped me tremendously. I cannot wait to go back for a little Botox and a touch up.
“Dr. Groff is very talented and reassuring.”
I can say I very much enjoy coming her for my laser treatments. Although they tend to be painful, Dr. Groff and his team make the experience as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Haley and Isabel are my favorite MA's when I come in for my treatments. They are super personable and nice. Dr. Groff is very talented and reassuring. I would recommend him and CLDerm to anyone thinking of a laser treatment.
“I am very impressed and comforted by the care I received yesterday and know that I will be taken care of.”
Yesterday I had a harmless but annoying cherry angioma-type growth on my upper lip removed by Dr. Groff. The procedure was easy and pretty painless and I can already see the growth going away. Dr. Groff and Isabelle were amazing - so kind and patient - they really took the time to make sure I understood my options.
I also had a biopsy done for a new growth on my chest that popped up right after my WA dermatology appointment. I thought that it was another cherry angioma but it appears to be a bit more troublesome. Whatever it ends up being, I am very impressed and comforted by the care I received yesterday and know that I will be taken care of.
Thank you so much!

“I personally thank Dr. Groff for giving me an appropriate diagnosis for my scar.”
What an amazing place I stumbled upon! Well, not really stumbled upon, finally found after years of searching. I personally thank Dr. Groff for giving me an appropriate diagnosis for my scar. He was direct, kind, honest, and quick. I have seen many plastic surgeons and dermatologists to fix my scar from a traumatic car accident I had seven years ago. Dr. Groff took one look with his crazy glasses and gave me a plan of action on the spot. He also gave a suggestion for a couple broken capillaries I had. I went through with his suggestions and could not be happier!! My scar is diminished, my broken capillaries are gone! I have been searching for years for someone with this knowledge and expertise. I have found it! A++ THANK YOU!!!
“He is a great listener.”
Dr. Groff and his staff have been attentive with me. I'm glad I went with him for my skin. He is a great listener. Thank you Dr. Groff!
“Dr Groff also seemed very knowledgeable as to which lasers to use where and why.”
I was referred to Dr Groff by a permanent make up artist. She told me he is one of the best in San Diego for effectively removing permanent make up. Our first session went very well - he was conservative yet confident in what he was doing. Dr Groff also seemed very knowledgeable as to which lasers to use where and why. That is a great skill. He's also super nice.
“Thorough in both their analysis of my treatment and in the laser procedure. The result was highly satisfactory.”
Dr. Groff and his assistants were professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly, thorough in both their analysis of my treatment and in the laser procedure. The result was highly satisfactory. I met in the doctor's office to discuss what was recommended but unfortunately all that I needed done exceeded my budget. Dr. Groff was able to eliminate procedures that were not highly needed at the time and focus on procedures that would yield the best results. After the procedure, the assistant was thorough in helping me to understand what I needed to do at home, how long recovery would take, and what steps I needed to take to maximize results. After several weeks, Dr. Groff saw that some of the procedure could be redone for additional benefit which he did quickly and at no additional charge.
“He is very skilled and creates great rapport with his clients.”
Dr. Groff has been performing my Botox injections for nearly a year now. He is very skilled and creates great rapport with his clients! I feel very comfortable going to Dr. Groff for this procedure. In a city full of many options, this office stands out for me :-)
“He is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.”
I have been seeing Dr. Groff for over a year. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. On the occasions when they are running behind schedule, they have always acknowledged it and apologized, which is nice to hear in a doctors office!
“Fantastic service, helped me in ways that other doctors were not able to.”
Fantastic service, helped me in ways that other doctors were not able to. I was recommended to Dr. Groff from another dermatologist back east, and I am absolutely ecstatic that I was! I have family members that have also started going here and that should show how great of a facility this is.
“Dr Groff and his staff couldn't have been better!”
Such a great experience! Dr Groff and his staff couldn't have been better! Good prices, nice office, and well educated staff willing to go the extra mile to explain all options. Highly recommend!
“I look 10 years younger.”
Love dr groff. Very honest and did the best injectable a ever! I look 10 years younger.
“He can do magic with lasers.”
Dr. Groff is a very skilled, compassionate and knowledgeable cosmetic dermatologist. He can do "magic" with lasers. I have been extremely happy with the results of all my procedures. Dr Groff also has a wonderful personality which makes having a procedure done more enjoyable. Dr. Groff really cares about his patients and always goes the "extra mile" to ensure his patients are happy.
“Dr. Groff checked up on me that same evening,... that is what I call personalized care.”
I recently had a very effective laser treatment (Fraxel) with Dr. Groff last week. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the results already in such a short time. Dr. Groff checked up on me that same evening to ensure that all was good. That is what I call personalized care. Not only do highly recommend Dr. Groff and the group, but I will also continue to refer friends, colleagues, family and acquaintances to this fantastic group! Thank you again!
“Dr. Groff is so personable and takes the time to ensure you get the best care.”
Dr. Groff is so personable and takes the time to ensure you get the best care. Plus, his support staff is incredibly kind. I highly recommend going to this office.
“Dr. Groff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable!”
I am new to San Diego and was looking for a dermatologist who could help me turn back time....and I found him! Dr. Groff was friendly, professional and knowledgeable! His assistant Isabel was extremely helpful. Exactly what I needed for fillers, laser and sun damage. I rarely write reviews....but I was so pleased with my early results....I had to write! I am so glad that I found the perfect office to help me with all of my anti-aging. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!
“I have been trusting Dr. Groff to help the rest of my face! He is exceptional, .... I recommend this practice 100%. ”
I wrote a review over a year ago about this dermatology group, because I had just received a terrible injury from an RN at a MedSpa. Dr. Groff was able to recognize the problem and was able to respond to it with the correct care in the urgency it required. I am finished with all the scar repair, and had excellent results with the laser treatments. Dr. Groff knew exactly what to do. Now that the scar repair is behind me, I have been trusting Dr. Groff to help the rest of my face! He is exceptional, as I am sure are all the dermatological surgeons in this office. I recommend this practice 100%. In the almost year and a half I've been coming, I've been treated with professionalism and respect from each member of the team. Thanks Dr. Groff and your phenomenal staff!
“Dr. Groff takes him time and seems to really care about the results.”
I have been working with Dr. Groff for awhile now and I completely trust him and have been nothing but happy with his work. Dr. Groff takes him time and seems to really care about the results. He does not recommend procedures that are not needed, and I know I can count on him to help me look my best. Whether it is something simple like botox, or a more significant laser treatment he takes his time and makes sure you get the best results. The nurses he works with are great too. I would highly recommend. :)
“I have followed him everywhere.”
I have been a patient of Dr. Groff's for over 10 years, back when botox was still "new"! I have followed him everywhere. He is so easy to talk to, he explains all of the procedures, how they work, what your options are, and then works - surprise- with your lifestyle, budget, etc. I will continue to see Dr. Groff and his competent staff and work with him to continue fighting father time. Yes, it's a little more expensive to get a laser treatment here, absolutely. But, they have the most experience in all of san diego. If someone is going to laser beam my face, yeah, I want the man or woman who has done this a few times before, not the temporary medical assistant who just completed the online course and hooked up with groupon. It's your face!
“He obviously takes great pride in his work and wants to ensure you're pleased with your results.”
I made a recent trip to see Dr. Groff and had a great experience! The front desk staff was pleasant, my wait time was minimal and everything was explained to me in detail. I would highly recommend Dr. Groff for any cosmetic enhancements or any cosmetic dermatologic treatments. He is extremely skilled and meticulous in his treatments. He obviously takes great pride in his work and wants to ensure you're pleased with your results - he even followed up personally the next day to see how I was doing. Not only was the procedure much more comfortable than expected, the results are natural-looking and fabulous! I will definitely return for all my skin and cosmetic needs. When it comes to your face and elective beauty treatments, I would NEVER sacrifice quality care and expertise for price - and neither should you!
“He is experienced and talented.”
I have had a number of follow up laser treatments by Dr. Groff, who is absolutely remarkable. He is experienced and talented. I have had the pleasure of meeting each of the MD's at this practice and believe that each is exceptional. If you are considering any type of treatment, and are looking for a practice that will provide you with expert care and safe practice, look no further. Thanks for reading this, and communicating my message to all your friends and family.
“Dr. Groff was amazing and caring!”
After reading all these reviews I had to write my own. I was a patient a few years ago and Dr. Groff was amazing and caring! This office and staff are amazing and highly trained and they are worth the money because of the extra mile they go for their patients. I had a laser for my melasma and they followed up with for 4 months afterwards and even added additional treatments for me while I was healing. One day after the procedure was done DR. Groff called to see how I was doing. That in itself it worth 10 stars!
“Look no further, Dr. Groff is all you need!”
I was a little worried when I came to my initial consultation that the results I was hoping for were impossible. But Dr. Groff totally blew me away—I couldn’t be happier with my new, youthful look! Look no further, Dr. Groff is all you need
“Extremely happy with the results already and I look forward to being back”
I definitely did my research before I came in for my consultation with Dr. Groff. I have been looking to treat some dark blue veins around my eyes and knew it would take a special kinda of laser. I was so very happy with the service I received today from both Dr Groff and his nurse. They were so helpful and when I made the decision to do the treatment they even accommodated me and I had the treatment done the same day! Extremely happy with the results already and I look forward to being back and will be referring others to his practice as well.
“I am so thrilled to be a patient of Dr. Groff.”
I am so thrilled to be a patient of Dr. Groff. He is very caring and always does a thorough job. The staff is very attentive and I enjoy the experience when I visit CLDerm. I would recommend Dr. Groff to anybody wanting to explore Laser options. I am happy with my results. Although it can be painful, the numbing cream helps a lot and results are worth it!
“Dr Groff’s talents are completely stunning.”
Dr Groff’s talents are completely stunning. I have been going to him for a couple of years and each time he takes as much time as required with me, and I have a feeling of great importance to him. The staff was pretty courteous and quite lovely to look at to be honest which is even better. I can’t wait to go back again.
