Make an Appointment


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.

Patient Reviews

September 20, 2022
The entire staff was especially courteous and helpful. A very pleasant experience. The doctor surpassed expectations! Thanks so much.. There is far too little kindness and courtesy these days!
September 20, 2022
The doctor took his time to ensure my Dad was taken care of. Very professional and listen to his concerns at all time. Thank for looking out for my Dad. Very satisfied with the service for the beginning to the end.
September 14, 2022
I find the front office not very friendly and welcoming. Sometimes borderline rude! I am happy with my nurse and doctor.
September 13, 2022
Dr. Saleh was very helpful and showed genuine concern for my issue. It was frustrating knowing that my issue should have been looked at earlier but appointment times were out so far. It took an appointment with a PA to get into see a dermatologist sooner than my original appointment.
September 09, 2022
The doctor and staff helped me very well.
September 08, 2022
courteous and professonl
September 07, 2022
I liked all the care they gave me that day. Thank you very much.
September 07, 2022
I had a cyst removal and I was supposed to receive a letter form of the evaluation of the actual cyst promptly and I didn't receive until after seen him two weeks later after the sis was removed. And he swore that the doctor swore that the forms have been sent out and has been sent out two week later when I saw him.Thank you.
September 02, 2022
Excellent staff. Very polite and professional.
August 29, 2022
Right on time with scheduled appointment. Did not have to wait more than a few minutes before I was seen by my doctor. Very helpful with explanations and treatment along with scheduling an appointment that suited my calendar.
August 26, 2022
It was a really nice experience. I had scheduled the appointment so that it would be during my lunch break. I was in and out of there in less than 15 minutes.
August 25, 2022
New patient. Very pleased with doctor, staff. Welcoming office environment.
August 22, 2022
I appreciate that the doctor actually knew about the cancer treatment that I was having troubles with. Whether he researched or had past patients, I'm usually having to explain to new doctors
August 19, 2022
I am very pleased with the staff and my health care provider in the dermatology department.
August 19, 2022
I'm excited to start the recommended treatments.
August 17, 2022
It was an excellent n very informative experience. Only drawback was setting up appointment, which took almost Three months to be scheduled.
August 16, 2022
So far he is my favorite PIH dermatologist. In the past, other's have just given topical medications. He thoroughly examined my scalp and saw irritation so injected a medication. It has only been a day and so far I feel a lot better.
August 12, 2022
Dr was very attentive. Great experience
August 09, 2022
Very easy visit, except pay for parking and no validation for it.
August 08, 2022
Everyone was very helpful and polite.
August 05, 2022
Couldn't be more satisfied
August 05, 2022
Thank you
August 03, 2022
I'd like to say thank you for having a doctor like this, Dr. Saleh and his staff. Dr Saleh was very nice, very informative, very patient, gave me all the time I needed to listen to me, understand that I was nervous, and he tried to calm me down. He is very nice, very soft spoken, he's very very extremely nice and I am
August 03, 2022
The doctor is wonderful! Knowledgeable, attentive and put a plan in place to address the concerns. His tech is rude, goes way too fast and is visibly bothered by any info corrected, added or requested. Front desk staff ruined the entire experience. You cannot teach customer service or manners- PIH should be more particular when hiring. They were not just unwilling to help but rude and unprofessional (rolling of eyes, sighing, whispering) totally unacceptable.
August 02, 2022
It did take a long time to see the provider.
July 29, 2022
Wish could get appt sooner when needed not 2 months from when calling
July 26, 2022
Doctor was more than helpful. I really appreciated his professionalism and assistance.
July 26, 2022
He was very nice, patient , understanding and made me feel as relaxed as possible and his staff as well
July 26, 2022
Was to be a screening for skin cancer, Dr had a lady PA with him which made me kind of nervous Dr. DID NOT CHECK WELL only had me take my shirt off, but didn't really check well. Felt rushed etc
July 22, 2022
The Dr. was very professional, patient, and thorough. He was personable as well.
July 19, 2022
Staff very professional!!!
July 14, 2022
Great service
July 08, 2022
This was an unnecessary appointment. All I got out of the appointment was a procedure appointment scheduled on 8/25. This could have been done over the phone and I wouldn't have missed two hours of work.
July 01, 2022
I loved the promptness with which I was seen and the care and professionalism from the whole staff.
July 01, 2022
Very informative compared to the previous doctor we had. Friendly, communicative, and open to any questions unlike the previous doctor. Glad they hired him.
June 29, 2022
provider had great bedside manner staff was all very friendly and helpful the ONLY complaint i have is that i had to book appointment 3 months out as it was the soonest available appointment. very disappointed that it took that long to get an appointment.
June 29, 2022
What a great doctor. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything to me so I could understand. I walked away from my visit that I felt he is going to help me.
June 28, 2022
He seemed to be in a hurry to get me out. Didn't do anything to solve the issue other than send me home with a bag of samples products.
June 14, 2022
Dr. J. Saleh was very attentive to my concern over a breakout on my face as well as a cut obtained on my left breast while getting a mammogram last week. He determined the correct treatment for me for my acne and instead of putting me on a 6 week Antibiotics, when I told him that I had previously had C-Dif he only gave me 10 day antibiotics and instead gave me samples on a Foam with topical antibiotics. So that shows he listens well while still finding solutions for treatment. I think he's a great Dr. who is trying to clear my issues. His medical assistant, (name removed) was also very nice and professional. Please thank them both for me.
June 14, 2022
Just that i was seen fastt and efficiently
June 09, 2022
He explains everything to you in a manner you can easily understand.
June 07, 2022
This was my first visit so I really don't know that I can rate anyone well, it was adequate worked out, so
June 07, 2022
He is very personable and caring.
June 07, 2022
Dr. Saleh is professional and very conscientious.
June 07, 2022
Dr. Saleh was extremely informative and very thorough. My daughter and I are very fortunate to have been assigned to him as our dermatologist.
June 07, 2022
Visit was on time and everything was explained
June 03, 2022
As always, Dr. Saleh took the time to listen to my concerns, was clear in his explanations, and provided recommendations that would be of benefit to me.
June 01, 2022
Love this office but difficult to get appointments because everyone is so booked yp
June 01, 2022
Hello. First of all, the doctor was very nice, very knowledgeable, and provided a prescription that... the prescription is helping me right now. However, it took 1 month to make an appointment and this is, I think quite a long time since I had an infection and I had to wait a month to to see him. So, and I was a new patient at the time, and it seemed like when the referral comes, if the doctor is that busy, maybe you're short of staff and you're working them too hard. Okay, that's my opinion. Thank you very much.
June 01, 2022
Yes, the doctor was very concerned about my condition more than mostly are. So I really appreciate and I'm happy that I got him. Thank you.
May 31, 2022
The doctor was very, very good. He had excellent bed side manner and made me feel very comfortable. Although I've only seen him once I look forward to whatever my needs are in the future with them and to evaluate the rest of the skill sets. Very decent individual and would definitely recommend them to others.
May 27, 2022
Doctor and nurses are great. Front office needs improvement on customer service, just not this office but PIH in whole. Wait times on the phone to make an appointment are ridiculously long.
May 27, 2022
Dr. Saleh continues to provide me with EXCELLENT care every time I have an appointment! Doc Saleh always has a GREAT bedside manner and takes his time and is so patient with me ! He will ask if there is anything else I need to ask him and I really appreciate that from a Doctor ! (name removed)(Nurse) was so pleasant to deal with for my appointment! She explained everything she did and was so nice !
May 25, 2022
first visit, interaction with this provider - it was professional and informative
May 25, 2022
Dr Saleh was very professional and was the kindest Dr. ever. He took time to listen and was very concern and answered my questions very clearly. He made me fill very confident in him and very comfortable with doing the biopsy. He explained every step as he proceeded with the biopsy. i would recommend him and his assistant (name removed) to anyone that is in need of a great doctor. Dr. Saleh and (name removed) should be commented for their being professional and having so much respect for their patients.
May 20, 2022
Dr. Jamal Saleh was really friendly you felt really made you feel real happy and also he was very thorough, because he noticed some things on my face that I have not paid much attention to, so I was really happy with him.
May 19, 2022
Excellent Doctor, Staffs , And clean clinic!
May 18, 2022
Mostly everything was good. It went smoothly. Only the person that that we, that I saw before the doctor, was kind of, I don't want to say rude, but he was like really, he looked annoyed. He wasn't like, he was not kind at all and he was really rude. I don't know if he was having a bad day, but that's what I have to say that the rest of the service was wonderful. Thank you.
May 18, 2022
Hi yes, I had gone in for a cancer screening before the scan, and he just checked my arms, my scalp and that was it. He didn't check anything else and I just left very dissatisfied from the appointment. I was just hoping for a thorough, thorough, screening, after all, that's what he is going to get paid for, for a thorough screaming and that's definitely not what I got.
May 18, 2022
Yes, the doctor is fantastic, thorough, kind, concerned. I don't know what more I can say. He's a wonderful doctor.
May 18, 2022
Felt a little rushed, in a way that was noticed via non verbal behaviors, such as pace of speech, very hurried. I appreciate a more slower approach, and to not feel like I'm being rushed because culturally a more slower approach is preferable. I did not want to ask about anymore things because it felt like I was taking up their time even though I was in there a little more than 5 minutes. I do appreciate the promptness of the doctor and that he did ask me about my concerns.
May 17, 2022
I greatly appreciate the care I received thank you so much
May 11, 2022
Very kind, professional and respectful
May 10, 2022

May 06, 2022
The doctor is very easy to work with. Very thorough has seen my mom for her rash for sometime, now and is extremely helpful and always willing to fit us when we need. I recommend him to family and friends.
May 06, 2022
He addressed everything and I really appreciated it. I didnt feel like he was just trying to get me out the door.
May 04, 2022
I am so impressed with your service! I have was able to get an appointment immediately and my experience with your Dermatologist/Staff was Great!

May 04, 2022
Very amiable provider. It was a pleasure to meet Dr. Saleh.
April 29, 2022
I would like to consult with another doctor, since with this consultation I was not able to solve my problems (but I should not be charged).
April 29, 2022
This was the most pleasant experience I've EVER had at a doctor's appointment. Doctor and nurse were VERY nice! And easy to talk to!
April 29, 2022

April 07, 2022
The dermatologist was very professional. And I have no complaints about him. He was wonderful, but I would prefer seeing a female dermatologist. Thank you.
April 07, 2022
The phone in wait times are atrocious.... I've waited 45 minutes multiple times... then been hung up on....
April 06, 2022
Thanks again to all
April 06, 2022
Everything was very good, very professional, very satisfied.
March 22, 2022
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
What I like abount dr Jamal Saleh I had a lot of concerns and He explain Everything so I felt relief. Thank you so much.
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.
February 03, 2022
Staff was very kind. Staff was very understanding about my concerns. Explained everything very thoroughly
February 03, 2022

January 10, 2022
Dr. Saleh was very thorough and made me feel secure with regard to his planned treatment for my condition.
January 07, 2022

December 22, 2021
This doctor was fantastic. Very patient oriented. Very respectful. Super doctor.
December 09, 2021
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. Thank you [name removed] for listening and on the 24th of November I was called with an appointment that day. The Doctor was very professional and listened to all my concerns.
November 24, 2021
Very pleasant experience in total.
November 19, 2021
Excellent service from PIH
November 15, 2021
Verry good.
November 15, 2021
Such a great, caring doctor! We need more doctors like him at PIH!! I've never had a doctor so respectful and patiently listening to what I say. I would recommend him to everyone because he is very friendly and has a kind demeanor. Thank you Dr. Saleh!
November 12, 2021
The Dr. was kind and spent alot of time explaining things to me.
November 08, 2021
Extremely professional and made me feel very comfortable.
November 04, 2021
They treated me very well thank you
November 03, 2021
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.
October 21, 2021
Nice clinic staffs and the environment !
October 20, 2021
Very courteous and knew what he was doing
October 20, 2021
My name is [PHI removed]. I am answering the survey that they are asking me about the doctor's attention and the attention of the staff seemed very good to me. I think it's very good, that's all, thank you very much.
October 18, 2021
Courteous and listened to my concerns.
October 18, 2021
Very kind and gentle doctor! Very easy to talk to! His staff took me in the exact time of my appointment and were friendly and helpful!
October 15, 2021
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.
October 08, 2021
I had to wait 4 months for an appt and 2 months in they called to reschedule me and change drs
October 08, 2021
Dr. Saleh is very knowledgeable and very thorough.
October 07, 2021
