The best, as usual. This place is awesome
May wound from a cancer excision healed amazingly fast with no pain or infection. After two weeks it looked really natural and hardly noticeable. You do good work with a cheerful stair side manner.
Friendly and professional
Quick and easy!
Everything went great!
A necessary surgery was fast efficient and handled in a caring manner. Thank you Dr. K. And staff for another Successful procedure.
I always appreciate Dr. Karlsberg’s kindness and compassion in the way he listens to my concerns and figures out the least invasive way to get me to my intended results. I greatly appreciate the care I have received from Dr. Karlsberg!
Dr. Karlsberg explained the procedure prior to beginning, and answered all questions professionally.
She always has me leaving feeling happy. I have been a patient there for too many years to count. Never disappointed

Very caring and thoughtful professional staff!
I was in and out. Dr. Karlsburg and his staff are very friendly.
I’m a 76 year old outdoors-man paying the price for a lifetime of sun exposure. After reading the social media reviews of the dermatologist I have been using for years, I realized I was not the only one who felt the exams were vert cursory. One reviewer mentioned he had moved to Dr. Karlsberg and was impressed with his thoroughness. Several other reviews were also very positive. My appointment with Dr. Karlsberg could not have gone better. The staff and Dr. Karlsberg were exceptional in every respect. I experienced the most thorough examination I have had in years. Dr. Karlsberg removed several pre-cancers from several places on my face and body and took a biopsy revealing a skin cancer requiring future mohs surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Karlsberg as a dermatologist and have every expectation of seeing him on a regular basis.
Good for 20 years
Dr. Karlsberg is one of the most professional and attentive physician’s I’ve ever encountered. He listens so he can better address the needs of his patients. Very impressive.
The office is run very professionally during this COVID-19 time. Dr. Karlsberg was attentive, informative, and solved my skin issues.
Michelle is very attentive and thorough. She’s definitely top-notch!
Michelle is informative, friendly, & knowledgeable in her field of specialty. She has cared for my family for over 7 years & cares about her patients. Highly recommend Michelle!
very satisfied as always.
I had a very good experience with my treatment. The Office Staff and the Doctor himself were very professional and kind. They took there time and I felt taken care off. I definitely will come back.
Doctor Karlsberg and staff are always helpful and considerate. I feel special and cared for. Felt safe.
My visits with Dr. Karlsberg, Md have been excellent. Dr. Karlsberg has a very kind and professional manner. He is very thorough in his diagnosis and treatment and takes time to answer questions. His entire staff are all very nice and helpful. The office is organized, clean and appealing. I am grateful to receive such excellent care. Michele Gagnon-Bartsch
I am a longtime patient of Dr Karlsberg and he has done a very good job of taking care of my very fair skin that has seen way too much sun in the past. In fact, perhaps the main reason I have kept my health plan is because he is a PPO on it.
Dr K is warm and personable- I trust him and his staff.
I had a suspicious area on my scalp which I suspected might be cancerous. Dr. Karlberg is excellent at diagnosing suspicious areas and treating them. He took a needle biopsy which showed precancerous and it was frozen all in less than three days. Surroundings immaculate. Great distancing between clients. No crowding in waiting room. His staff both front office and back are always welcoming and very professional. My husband and I have both used Dr. Karlsberg exclusively for skin care for over 25 years. We highly recommend him.
Dr. Karlsberg is always personable while highly professional. He and his staff always put me at ease with their friendliness while yet paying attention to the medical detail. He has a good eye and soft touch. While I started going to his office for skin monitoring related to sun exposure, as I’ve gotten older I have inquired about other procedures. He assures me my skin looks good and does not push the cosmetic services. Over the years I’ve had a few different dermatologists and Dr. Karlsberg is the all-around best!
Dr Karlsberg is the best!! Thank you for your excellent care! Office staff is warm and wonderful, too! ❤️❤️❤️
Caring and through.
Dr Karlsberg is patient, caring and so in tune to his patients. His expertise, knowledge and techniques are superior.
I highly recommend Dr Karlsberg. He is down to earth and very friendly. Although I know he is a busy man, he never seems to be rushing me out the door.
Dr Karlsburg and his staff are so personable, accomodating and professional. I live out of town but I am choosing this doctor as my dermatologist.
The doctor was delightful, professional and easy to relate to. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Karlsberg is an outstanding doctor in every way. He’s highly qualified and compassionate and compassionate as well! What a wonderful doctor!!! Thanks so much!!
Michell and Dr. k always go above and beyond the call of duty!!! I love to see the same team staff, to me that speaks volumes on how the staff is being taken care of and of course how the staff feels about their patients. it’s always pleasant to going into the office I get spoiled every time by Anthony with my warm cup of coffee, and Claudias beautiful welcoming smile and of course I can’t leave the front office team behind…… Angie Amber and Gracie are always on top of their game…insurance, medical history, finances, I could go on! It’s truly one of the best offices in all Ventura county.
It was fine. Problem skin patches on back of left hand and on nose healed up fine. Very glad to get them taken care of. Thank you.
Great doctor with great hands. Three small surgeries on my ears and neck and not a scar in sight. Great staff. Short wait time.

During this pandemic, I felt safe having my procedure and there was little wait! Great experience!
Very little waiting time, all questions answered clearly and thoroughly, procedure went smoothly and painlessly, Dr Karlsberg and all staff were courteous, friendly and accommodating, couldn’t wish for better medical care. I’d highly recommend VIDA for any and all dermatological needs.
Beyond being a great Doctor, Dr. Karlsberg is also a great humain being, no ego there but kindness and generosity. The front desk staff is welcoming and personable. First rate care all around.
This place is a complete breath of fresh air after working with my previous dermatologist. My first visit with Michele was great. She found a nasty looking mole on my chest and they handled it immediately. Dr Karlsberg is super friendly and easy to work with and took out the mole quickly but thoroughly. He got it all in the first pass. My skin is riddled with basal cell and likely other stuff but I feel that I’m in good hands with this crew of professionals moving forward.
Dr. Karlsberg has great bedside manner. He is very through and listens & takes his time. Best of all his great personality.
Always very professional. No waiting time and service is first class.
A safe visit, very short wait time, and Michele was thorough with my exam and addressed all my questions satisfactorily.
Professional, courteous and I’m confident Dr Karlsberg’s experience. I would recommend him to feiends & family.

Excellent experience. Thank you for the great experience.
Going to my doctor appointments in the last five years at Dr. Karlsberg’s dermatology office has always made me feel at ease and welcome, because of his awesome personality, expertise and knowledge, and proficiency in dermatology. Plus his wonderful sense of humor. I can count on his staff to always be courteous, friendly, welcoming, and helpful.
Dr Karlsberg and his staff are very nice !
Had some surgery on the the back of neck. Dr Karlsberg explained what he was doing throughout the procedure and the after care needed. He’s very professional and everything went great.

Michele is incredibly professional and thorough in her appointments. She took my fear of the unknown and put me at ease with her biopsy procedures. I’ve referred her to so many people who are looking for a really good dermatologist office. Michele is truly the best!
Dr. Karlsberg and his staff are courteous, empathetic, and professional. I have been a patient for many years, and believe me — the doctor knows his stuff!
I have been a patient of Dr. Peter Karlsberg for many years and have always been very pleased with his practice.
No long wait.
My wife, Barbara is legally blind and now has “low vision”. She told me that Dr. Karlsberg was an excellent doctor. Tom Quigan
I went in for a dark spot I have had for years. Tried everything to get rid of it, but nothing worked. Dr. Karlsberg did a peel. It went away after 10 days! I am so excited. He is awesome, and the staff is very friendly.
Very well satisfied. I would highly recommend Dr. Karlsberg.
Very professional office from the front desk personnel to the doctor and his assistants.
Peter Karlsberg is the best dermatologist. He also has a friendly supportive staff.
REMOVAL OF BLOOD VESSELS ON NOSE, UPPER LIP AND CHIN WITH A LASER. WENT GREAT!!
I was pleased with the care I received..
Not everything in life is as good as it can be, but my appointment and treatment was. Beautiful, calming office, friendly and happy staff, and skilled, caring, and brilliant doctor. I could not be more pleased. More than professional, the entire place is like a happy home.
Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. I will return, best experience at a Dermatologist’s office. Office staff were very helpful as well. Would highly recommend.

Michele is thorough and professional. I feel well taken care of with her.
Office personnel polite and professional. Michele Ayans was professional and personable. I have been going to Dr. Karlsberg office for treatments for 15 years.
I had an appointment with Michele to assess a number of moles on my back and chest. She performed a biopsy on one mole and the procedure was very efficient and painless. The lab results were returned in record time and the office staff notified me immediately. Michele’s professional approach and warm personality were top drawer and I would recommend her to everyone, including family and closest friends!
Always very happy with Michele and,as they say, I gave my feedback at the office.
Michelle provided the appropriate medications. I promptly recovered. Thanks.
Thoughtful staff and attentive doctor.
I put my complete trust in Dr. Karlsberg’s opinion and abilities. He has an excellent eye for aesthetics and made me look years younger with little to no pain or discomfort.
I met Dr Karlsberg after having a few ‘spots’ removed. He, along with his staff, made me feel so at ease, I never would have imagined such an easy and comfortable experience. He is so down to earth and personable… a real find. Sadly his office just informed me he no longer treats alopecia which took me by surprise, so ill need to find another Dr for treatment. But only for the alopecia. All other needs I wouldn’t think of trading him.
Michele is very professional and thorough with her exam
Michelle is always friendly, skilled, and caring! I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks!
Very thorough, and informative. Michelle has a great personality she makes you feel comfortable.
Great!!! Everyone is very nice and I received undivided attention as always. Dr. Karlsberg is very thorough.
Very satisfied with treatment.
The visit was excellent. The marks from the procedure are more obvious and they taking longer to heal than I expected, but they are fading each day.
Dr. Karlsberg is a great doctor and very nice.
Michelle is always friendly and helpful. She listens to what I want done and has good recommendations.
I’ve seen Michelle for almost 10 years. She is always attentive, informative and very helpful.
As always, Michele was thorough & professional. She answered my questions & made recommendations.
Outstanding patient care. Very thorough exam, and all of my concerns were explained completely.
Everything went fine. Waiting time was minimal. Dr. came into the room shortly. Answered questions I had. Will come back.
I have been a satisfied patient of Dr. Karlsberg for over 15 years. I am willing to travel from the Bay Area, where I relocated to in 2018, to receive regular checkups and any treatments necessary. I can’t recommend him and his staff any higher!
Saw Doctor Karlsberg today and felt compelled to write a review ( never have for a Doctor before ) because of the excellent treatment I received. I went in for filler and Dr . Karlsberg took the time to explain every step he was taking and I could tell the work he was doing was important to him in making sure I was happy with the results . He made me feel very welcomed and thanked me for putting my trust in his work . I am thrilled with the results and who he is as a physician. I will never go anywhere else .
Michelle always takes time to explain her findings and procedures, and makes helpful recommendations.
I have always had the best care!
I love Dr. Karlsberg’s work. He is not only kind, knowledgeable, experienced, he is an artist. I drive from Santa Barbara to Ventura for botox, filler, etc. because I trust him when I ask and he tells me what I need. His staff is as friendly and accommodating as he is. Thank you Dr. K!
Was very thorough and explains things well. Very personable.
Dr. Karlsberg is the ultimate professional and always does exactly what is needed with expertise. I always look so much better.
Only the best things to say about Dr. K and crew! Not even sure how many years I’ve been under his care, but I happily give my highest recommendation! Each experience has been personal, professional and fruitful. Thanks, Doc!
The appointment was quick and easy.
Dr. Karlsberg is a true professional…trustworthy…accurate diagnostician…non alarmist but appropriate. He has a friendly disposition and I always feel like I am in safe hands when treated by him. My husband feels the same. We are grateful to him.

I’ve been seeing Michele Ayans for years for my skin care issues and I’m very comfortable with her. She is very relatable and easy going and I love talking to her about life and my twin boy/girl grandbabies as she conducts my checkup. My manly husband joins me for his checkups as well. Recently he had an injection at the base of his nose and didn’t even flinch. The Ayans touch.
We’re very pleased to have become patients of this great practice.
My appointment was with Michelle. She is wonderful at recognizing trouble spots and zapping them! I always feel well cared for when I visit her or Dr Karlsberg.

I’m very much enjoying my transformation…lipo under the chinny chin chin, thermitight, botox on those angry looking 11’s, and fill for those marionette lines and…fish hooks…I’m getting younger! Great staff, beautiful office, and all the anti aging stuff so “everyone will notice, but no one will know.” No need to go anywhere else but Dr. Karlsberg’s office!
Dr. K and staff always friendly. Never feel rushed and he takes time to answer all my questions.
Once again, Dr. Karlsberg quickly & correctly diagnosed my problem. The recommended treatment worked quickly & completely! Whatever your skin issue, Dr. K has the training, skills, experience & awesome staff to help. Yes, he is absolutely worth waiting for!!!
Always lovely and thorough.
The front office is always so friendly and helpful. And Dr. Michelle always takes such good care.
The laser surgery I had done over a year ago didn’t quite turn out as expected so Dr. Karlsberg offered to do a chemical peel instead. So far, I am extremely happy with the results!
Dr.Karlsberg is very knowledge and an excellent physician. He also makes you comfortable and less fearful. I highly recommend him.
I was seen within 10 minutes of arrival. Everyone was gracious and caring. Upon seeing something that was not an “age spot,” it was immediately taken care of. Aftercare instructions were clear.
I love seeing Michele. She’s very caring and great with the Botox! Always see her when I need a touch up
