I made an appointment to see Dr. Alexis, not an intern. On the wall opposite the work station with his most unprofessional office staff, there is clearly a sign that indicates if you DO NOT want to be seen by an intern to let the doctor know.I never said I came to his office for a full body cancer screening. When he ran out of nonsense to say, he finally flipped the full body cancer comment out of his mouth. He continuously looked at me with blinking wide eyes to try to emphasize his point that he needed an intern.I had moles which needed to be assessed and he treated me like a leper, by asking me to move my body in awkward positions so he could view the moles. None of the moles were in a location a "female" was needed for. Male gynecologists do not even need a female babysitter during an exam. As for the huge mole on my face, on my cheek right under my eye, Andrew failed to assess the mole staring him in the face. Very disappointed is an understatement
The doctor was great. After examining my condition and venturing a disgnosis, he suggested a biopsy (new visit required) to confirm. He took the time to answer all my questions, and I had many, and discussed all treatment possibilities and options with me. He was not rushed and I left fully satisfied.
What are my reasons to see a doctor? I want his/her expertise. That is why I see Dr. Alexis. He is a an expert!!!! I have been his patient for over 3 years now and even if I have to wait a little to be seen, in my opinion, he is worth every minute. He has great bedside manner and he knows what he is doing. I had been loosing my hair for a while and none of the fancy derms even listened to me. He was the only one, who had seen this before and knew what to do. Now it is regrowing! Of course you can make an appointment with some doc in private practice, but there is a reason people chose to wait to see Dr. Alexis!!!
I saw Dr. Alexis for the first time today and I can say he was the best! I have seen several dermatologists in my adult life and he rates the highest. Great bedside manner, patience, takes a thorough history, gives a thorough examination, quite knowledgeable and was the utmost professional. I am going to tell all my friends about him. What I valued the most was his honesty about my condition and the realistic outcomes I could expect. What the office lacks in atmoshpere and ambiance and what the staff lacks in professionalism and appearance, he absolutetly makes up for in expertise, knowledge and professionalism. Highly recommended.
I originally went in because I wanted a precription for acne. In between the time I scheduled the appointment and the time to see him, I developed a rash and wanted to move the appointment up. The receptionist told me that it was impossible and that I would have to keep my original appt. Well, I went to the appointment and the receptionists were corteous, nothing extraordinary. I went to the examining room an this woman, late twenties, looking like a residency student/just starting comes and inspects me (I came to see dr Alexis, right?) and I'm answering questions. No sign of him. He ended coming up at the latter part of the appointment to laydown his final two cents. Mind you, this is my first time there. Don't you want to introduce yourself and tell me who this OTHER PERSON IS?! The rash cleared up before I got to see him but it left this dark brown mark (I'm African American and it was two shades darker than my brownish skin). He said since its c
the best mannered doc i've ever met.he helped me a lot with my melasma.a great specialist of skins of color.before him i spent thousands of dollars on treatments that did not work.His treatments beside treating my melasma have greatly improved my skin's texture
