DARREN RACHT PA-C

Physician Assistant

Darren is originally from Northeast Pennsylvania. He studied Fine Arts and ultimately graduated with a BS in pre-medicine from Marywood University in Scranton. He then went on to Physician Associate studies at King’s college in Wilkes-Barre. His arts background and Plastic Surgery training during his PA studies has prepared Darren for his now 20 years in Dermatology care. He especially enjoys procedures and would like to add regenerative medicine to his practice.

Darren believes in creating deep bonds with patients, working collaboratively for the best health outcomes. He couldn’t be more excited to share this opportunity with Dr. Waqar. “We will be the model for compassionate and comprehensive Dermatology care in the region. In an environment of consolidation and practice buyouts by management companies, I strive to preserve patient focused individual care.”

Outside of practice, Darren is building his custom dream home in Sutton, MA, doing a lot of the carpentry and all the artistic touches himself. The house has become a design lab and creative outlet. He enjoys outdoor activities, is a lifetime runner, and recently discovered cross-country skiing. His ultimate build goal is to fabricate his own 911 Safari car.

Everyone of the staff at Commonwealth Dermatology was friendly, helpful and kind. I called and spoke with Angie, (who was a delight to speak with), and was able to get an appointment the same day with no wait time in the office. I was seen by Darren Racht and felt instantly at ease. He was professional yet treated me like a family member. I felt like I had been seeing him for years. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend this office. This office should be a model for other medical practices.

I am extremely thankful and grateful for finding Dr. Sadaf "Sabrina" Waqar and her wonderful staff! Due to several stress and health issues, I developed the Auto Immune disease of severe Alopecia Areata, (the immune system infects and attacks hair follicles and causes hair loss) and within 2 weeks, lost most of my hair. I was devastated and concerned that something else in my body might be affected by this Auto Immune disease/deficiency. Dr. Waqar was knowledgeable, compassionate, reassuring, and diagnosed my condition immediately and accurately. She prescribed treatment and the proper meds for me that started working quickly, and we are all amazed at the amazing results I have achieved. In record time, my hair has begun regrowth, is coming in healthy, and I'm feeling wonderful! Dr. Sabrina Waqar is warm, compassionate, caring, and extremely efficient and knowledgeable. Her skills are unsurpassed, and she explains clearly what's happening, giving you reassurance and the utmost confidence in her as a professional and a dear friend! Dr. Waqar's Staff is exceptional; from my initial phone call, to several calls I have made with questions, to each visit - they are warm, efficient, friendly and helpful. Andrea, Dasia, Katie, and Alyssa, are all super efficient, caring and knowledgeable. They collect information, assist the doctor, take time to listen to your concerns, and explain things in a caring and friendly manner. Finding Commonwealth Dermatology, Dr. Waqar, and these amazing ladies has been a miracle for me, and I would highly recommend this awesome practice for any of the issues they specialize in!! A special thank you to Andrea, who assisted Dr. Waqar, gave me words of encouragement, took comparison photos, and helped me in any way she could! Also, the office is beautiful, spotless, ultra-modern, and the very short waiting time is enjoyable! Forever Thankful and Appreciative, Julie Zaik

Super impressed! I cannot say enough good things. I was stressed about my rashes and pain I was experiencing but being new to the state I knew I may not be able to get an appointment with a dermatologist for months (my experience in the midwest). I read reviews and called Commonwealth Dermatology and was incredibly surprised when they said they could get me in the NEXT DAY!? Not only did they get me in faster than I can get into my own PCP, but Darren has incredible bedside manners, listened and ordered labs to help kickstart my journey to diagnosis. All the staff that I came into contact with were amazing and I would recommend this place to anyone. I also want to add they were great with my toddler who tagged along which is always a bonus.

A special thank you to Darren Racht and Ellen Morin who were both extremely kind, professional, knowledgeable and reliable. I highly appreciate Ellen calling me with an update and informing me that, here, an entire team of professionals are working towards my care. I also highly appreciate Darren calling after hours to check in and discuss my options moving forward. Both individuals are just so caring. Phenomenal care here at Commonwealth!!! All providers were highly competent in their work, very knowledgeable in the subject matter, operated effortlessly well as a team and was extremely kind and personable! All staff made the experience very easy and even enjoyable! I was impressed with their knowledge of terminology involved, diagnoses, treatment options, etc. I left with answers, a plan and feeling extremely overjoyed that finally some progress was being made!!! I've never been so happy to go to a Dermatology appointment 😄

Darren is terrific. I would not go to any other dermatologist. He is relatable, and easy to talk to. He takes his time to listen and puts you at ease. He also sees My daughter and we will start going to him for our cosmetic needs. He is great! The front desk staff is very friendly too! I love the office but will always follow Darren because he makes it awesome!

Amazing, Dr.Daren has been wonderful to me and my skin looks amazing. I have never been anywhere that always thinks of their patients first. He would tell you if you really need something or not . They wouldn’t sell you or give you a procedure that you don’t need. They are not pushy! Love them!! Would recommend them to everyone
