Dr. Alim Devani's Ratings
I was diagnosed with Melanoma and Dr. Devani did the surgery within 5 days. He was pleasant and I had no discomfort during the procedure of removing mole from arm. I saw him 2 weeks later and has stitches removed and also had received work that what he removed was clear of cancer. He, again, was professional and pleasant and showed a genuine concern for me as a patient. He was happy about the outcome and pleased with how I had healed . The scar is appearing to be less pronouced than I had anticipated. I believe he did good work and would not hesitate to recommend him.
I went to Dr Devani after struggling with extremely bad eczema for six months. He prescribed an antihistamine which caused insomnia and hardly helped with the itching. I went back about a month later and told him this- he said he could give me more of the medicine but other than that "I don't know what else to tell you" on another occasion he asked ME how I would like to move forward and what I want to try even though I was the one going to HIM for help. Like many others, all my appointments were no longer than 6-7 minutes and not very helpful. I ended up going to a naturopath for help.
I was referred to Dr Devani 6 months ago due to adult acne issues and my experience has been very positive. Dr Devani recommended some treatments before prescribing Accutane which has been the best solution for my adult acne. I cannot be happier with the results. Dr Devani has been very helpful and always available. Also, the staff at the front desk is extremely helpful. I could not be more pleased and I would recommend this doctor to anyone who is looking for an excellent dermatologist!
My daughter was referred to Dr. Devani, and while at her appointment I asked him if he could take a quick look at a spot on my face. Our family doctor was planning to give me a referral to see Dr. Devani, but at this point had not. Without hesitation, he not only looked at it but said he could do a biopsy. Within five minutes, I had filled in a short information form and was shown to a treatment room. The biopsy was completely painless and now three days later is healing quite nicely. The office was extremely busy and he could have easily told me to wait for the referral. I will now have the biopsy results within two weeks instead of having to wait for weeks just to get an appointment. Dr. Devani and all of his staff were pleasant and very accommodating. It is easy to see why he is such a highly rated dermatologist.
In and out with just a glance at the akin issue. Prescribed a medication that upon reading the directions was not supposed to be prescribed for what he diagnosed? A complete waste of time and money.
I have had a few appointments with Dr. Devani, and with the exception of the first, all of them felt very rushed. They each lasted about 5 minutes and I felt like I didn't have a chance to ask questions because he was already holding the door open for me. Honestly, I can't tell how knowledgeable he is either from my very brief visits, but after finally getting a derm referral he's all I've got.
He was on time for the apt, as soon as I got in the room he came in about a minute later. I as referred to him for my moderate to severe cystic acne and I must say that he has helped me lots. He took the time to answers all of my questions that myself and my mom had. I'm now on Accutane and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
After waiting 30 minutes for our appointment, Dr. Devani was in and out of our appointment in under 30 seconds. Without introducing himself, he glanced at my 7 year old daughter's planters wart for barely a moment before ushering us off to the wart clinic. At the wart clinic a nurse, who also neglected to introduce herself to us, proceeded to zap my daughters foot with liquid nitrogen and laser treatments without any concern about my daughters tears.
The waiting room displays TV's which advertise skin treatments that I'd rather not watch. There are no magazines or anything at all for children.
Finally, after three laser, freezing nitrogen and blister treatments, my daughters wart didn't change at all - a total waste of time. The only benefit we gained by going to this clinic was the reference to the over the counter medication that finally helped. I wonder why they didn't just give it to us in the first place.
This clinic must help quite a few people, but for us it was a nightmare.
Four stars for the staff - they were polite and helpful. Two stars for punctuality. One star for helpfulness - that is for the over-the-counter medication they finally recommended after their three treatments failed. One star for knowledge - there wasn't a moment when anyone stopped to explain anything to us, so I really can't comment about their knowledge.
I had the absolute worst time finding a doctor who could actually help me with my acne. I saw a number of doctors who seemed to keep telling me all the things that wouldn't work for me and offered nothing that would. Dr. Devani provided me with a plan of action within 10 minutes of my first appointment and gave me so much information to make sure my choices were informed and I could get the best results possible. He is very considerate and his schedule was very workable around my own very inflexible one. I really appreciated my experience at his practice.
