    I was a new patient for Dr. Fassett but I felt like I had been seeing her for years. She checked my record and was very informed of my medical history. She was also great to work with upbeat and friendly.

    Wish the doctors were not so rushed by UCSF & could focus on the patient vs the clock

    Dr. Fassett was excellent. I think she is not served well by the ancillary staff.

    Dr Fassett is an amazingly compassionate and friendly physician who knows her patients well and truly cares about them
    Apr 16, 2023
    DrFasset seemed rushed today. In prior visits she has explained everything very well. This time explanations were too fast and less detailed.
    Apr 14, 2023
    Dr. Fassett is so knowledgeable and helpful!I have already recommended her to my husband and another close friend.
    Apr 14, 2023
    Late waited 90 minutes past appointment time to be seen wrote wrong prescription did not send correct instructions to pharmacy which caused coverage complications did not respond to urgent messages until four days later no way to contact directly and only through mychart. Very very poor customer experience for first time visit to UCSF would not recommend.

    The conversations we had on the subject of possible causes and treatment of symptoms was cogent and sympathetic if brief (follow up visit was about 15 minutes). The conversation was so abbreviated however that I didn't realize the appointment was over at the end. The doctor walked out the door without a clear wrap-up.

    So far Dr. Marlys Fassett has exceeded my hopes.

    Dr Fassett was an amazing doctor! She listened and answered all of my questions. She was very knowledgeable and patient waiting to be sure that I didn't have any more questions. She was caring and concerned as she preformed minor surgery. Overall I'd say she was outstanding!!! Very good doctor.

    Overbooked and rushed follow up instructions never sent to Mychart long wait resulted in very expensive parking charge. Several things the doctor was going to examine were not done. Liked the doctor blame the system not the doctor or staff.
    Sep 04, 2022
    Dr Fassett is prompt helpful extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. I also benefited from the team approach having the leading expert on my condition review my records and then worked with DrFassett.
    Aug 26, 2022
    Basically came in hoping to get my problems resolved but unfortunately I had to be referred to another dermatologist to get minor things done that I thought I could've gotten here at the dermatologist.
    Aug 14, 2022
    Care provider was thoughtful friendly and obviously very skilled--the most important factor for me.
    Aug 13, 2022
    Very kind and professional doctor. Great bedside manner!

    Dr. Fassett is amazing. She is an outstanding doctor.
    Jul 17, 2022
    Dr. Fassett was excellwet. She did more for me in 15 minutes than three other dermatologists did in more than two years! Again five stars and would recommend her in a flash.
    Jul 16, 2022
    Excellent communicator. I am very confident and comfortable in her care.
    Jul 16, 2022
    Dr Fassett pours her attention and care towards my itching as if it were her own meaning she CARES about me in a way that is palpable. Plus she has a great sense of humor!
    Jul 16, 2022
    Past visits were good but this visit was terrible no consideration or courtesy at this visit afaff more concern of Doctor running behind or lunch break that no cmunicationjust have to reschedule due to my not being on time. When in fact I have waited numerous times for the doctors. This is so wrong and tell me you can do something about this concern?!
    Jul 15, 2022
    Dr Fassett was the consummate dermatologist.
    Jul 15, 2022
    Visit was rushed. Everything was going so fast I forgot to ask the doctor to look at two areas of concern. And I should not have to do that. I feel that the doctor should check my whole body without me asking her to do that.
    Jun 08, 2022
    She was amazing. I immediately felt at ease and confident in her care.
    May 20, 2022
    I felt I was being cared for by family.
    May 04, 2022
    Provider has suggested a B3 vitamin as an experiment to reduce skin carcinoma. Seems to be a good idea for the last 6 months as no new BCC s have occurred.
    Apr 15, 2022
    Professional and courteous in every way. I come to UCSF for world class care and the service is usual very good (flawless this time). That's a bonus
