Jamal Saleh MD is a dermatologist who sees patients of all ages and any skin concerns. He is particularly interested in skin cancer and autoimmune skin disease. Dr. Saleh decided to specialize in dermatology because he found it to be a visual, detail-oriented area of medicine that requires strong diagnostic abilities and a broad base of knowledge that combines several areas of medicine.

“Being a doctor is both intellectually stimulating and personally gratifying,” he said. “I strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of my patients. I also enjoy seeing a patient’s quality of life improve once their skin condition improves.”

Since the skin is an organ that is visible to others, skin disease often impacts the patient’s quality of life and their psychosocial well-being. Being able to improve a patient's skin disease, and how they feel about themselves, is one of the most rewarding aspects of the field. As a dermatologist, Dr. Saleh is required to adapt to multiple roles within a day of practice—that of a clinical diagnostician, a surgeon, an oncologist and a pathologist, among others. He describes himself as a fierce patient advocate who is willing to go to great lengths to find and apply the best treatment plan available to address his patients’ needs.

Dr. Saleh was born and raised in Los Angeles County and is the first physician in his family. During medical school, he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society, one of the highest distinctions in medical education. He additionally was selected for the Gold Humanism honor society and received the intern of the year award during his first year of residency. He served as chief resident in dermatology during his final year of residency.

In his free time, Dr. Saleh enjoys crafting espresso-based drinks and sipping all forms of coffee. He likes trying new restaurants and cuisines and loves spending time with his family.

First time I have seen this doctor. Very impressed with him I really liked him
March 18, 2022
(name removed) is a very, very nice doctor. Absolutely thrilled with the care he's provided to my nana, (PHI removed). Really enjoy the staff. Very nice people, humorous, interested. I couldn't be happier with the care that she has received from (name removed). Thank you so much for all that you do.
March 18, 2022
Staff is busy friendly helpful. I arrived and I was sent in to see the doctor right away, my wait time was very brief, and my discussion with the doctor was fine. He answered all my questions. I was just under the impression that perhaps I would look...my skin would actually be looked at most...most...more closely, as opposed to just having a discussion and me sharing what my needs were. No point was my skin from the initial visit was it looked at and you know, something was prescribed but I thought my skin would be looked at by way under microscope or...I had the impression, and I think I wasn't...I wasn't happy
March 15, 2022
The staff was friendly and courteous and I didn't have to wait a long time in the lobby and I didn't have to wait a long time to see the doctor.
March 11, 2022
It's horrible. I pay insurance and I can't even go into a doctor's office. I have months to get seen or get check blood work. It's awful. This is retarded.
March 11, 2022
Your survey was a little confusing because it said, press 1 for no, then press 2 for yes, but you can't hear some what. So, my first two responses I press 2, but I should have done 4. But anyways, but yes, the care was excellent. Thank you.
March 10, 2022
Doctor listened to my concerns and reassured me not to worry
March 09, 2022
It was my first appointment with this doctor and he and his coworkers were great. I felt very comfortable.
March 09, 2022
Very professional. Kind. Considerate. Explained in detail what he needed to do. Sent sample for biopsy. Charming personality. Would recommended him to others
March 09, 2022
March 03, 2022
Dr saleh is very good. The staff needs to be polite and warm as the doc is. The contrast makes it look worse. I wonder with caring physicians what is missing in the medical culture of the PIH? I believe it is the rigor of personnel training
March 02, 2022
Very professional
March 01, 2022
Parking is an issue
March 01, 2022
The doctor is absolutely wonderful. I trust him very much, but I don't like it when you call me for any kind of a survey, in the middle of dinner. Please call at a different time. Okay, that will work better for me in the future. Thank you.
February 22, 2022
It would improve if you had more available appointment, it took too long for my son to see a dermatologist.
February 17, 2022
Doctor & staff very professional & caring.Feel very comfortable in their care.
February 16, 2022
Everything was great, the only problem was parking and paying your parking. There was a long line to pay your parking . It took me quite a while to find parking so I had a friend take my 90 year old mom inside the building so she wouldn't have to walk so far.
February 15, 2022
Jamal was very pleasant and professional, and a courteous office staff
February 11, 2022

February 10, 2022
This was a virtual visit for a medication refill because a face to face was not available until late March. Staff was helpful to facilitate the virtual meeting. Will still keep the face to face for full assessment.
February 09, 2022
Very informative, got things done. Pleased.
February 09, 2022
I would only hesitate to recommend the practice because it's hard to get a timely appointment. When I called, the closest available was 3 months away.
February 08, 2022
There is not much to say beside the answers of these questions. I am a cash patient, I could go anywhere, but I chouse to come here, and that's for serious reasons.

Thank you
December 02, 2021
Dr. Saleh was knowledgeable, respectful, and showed tremendous care for me as a patient. He honored my questions and concerns, and took the time to respond thoughtfully and thoroughly. He has been intentional to actually read over my file before entering the room, and consult with the rest of my medical team when establishing a health plan to ensure it is what is truly best for me. Thank you Dr. Saleh!
December 01, 2021
Yes, the only difficulty I had was finding where the office was and getting to it and so finally, I figured it out. But that was it and then I had some difficulty getting out of the physical plant because it wasn't doing my card. But anyway, other than that it was fine.
December 01, 2021
Very fast service
November 24, 2021
I was first given an appointment till February but I asked Stephanie that was scheduling if a cancellation came up to call me.

To start I was seen ON Time which is rare. I really appreciate that. I was a Pioneer patient and I see a huge difference with PIH. Dr. Saleh was fantastic, took his time explained everything and options. Thanks
November 03, 2021
The provider was fantastic.. I booked myself an appointment because I felt he was very knowledgeable, patient and explained things in a way that was easy to understand.
November 01, 2021
The doctor was very knowledgeable and was able to shed light on my skin condition.
October 28, 2021
What needs to be approved is to get an appointment calling through the appointment desk. I was a new patient and I needed to see the dermatologist and the wait was not until January for my appointment. My symptoms got worse. I had went to my back to my primary and he personally had to call the doctor to get me into a sooner appointment. So definitely is the wait to be more caring to the patients on your availability of an appointment.
October 28, 2021
The staff was wonderful. Doctor was fantastic. I felt comfortable. I also felt like I was important and that I mattered. Great experience.
October 25, 2021
The experience was great. Very thorough examination and treatment. I was very comfortable with the process and the doctor and staff were great. A biopsy was taken and treatment provided for a couple spots that are a bit concerning. I will have a follow-up discussion with the doctor once the biopsy results are in, and proceed accordingly. I would recommend this office and doctor to anyone needing these services.

It was really hard to get an appointment to see this specialist. We waited for 3 months before we could schedule an appointment to be seen.
October 14, 2021
Both Dr and nurse were very professional And very thorough and efficient. Biopsy done quickly and nurse bandaged the area really quick. She than explained care and instruction for changing bandages and providing me with Vaseline and bandages. Very professional. I was impressed
October 14, 2021
I wanted to see my primary dermatologist Dr. Scherschun but couldn't get an appointment until March,2022. This is unacceptable! Had to schedule with someone not familiar with my history. All went okay but it wasn't what I preferred.
October 14, 2021
Staff somewhat rude, quick to cut you off or push you out the door before you can even take a breath.
October 13, 2021
I prefer the doctor that I had seen previously.
October 13, 2021
Dr. Saleh is detailed and knowledgeable about his specialty. He spends time and listened to my concerns. He made me part of the treatment plan which was important to me. PIH is lucky to have him on staff.
