Dr. Alim Devani's Ratings
I was referred to Dr. Devani for my eczema and after waiting 6 weeks to get in, he didn't even LOOK at my skin. He wrote me 3 prescriptions and told me everything about eczema I already knew. He was VERY rude and short with me and refused to even acknowledge anything I suggested that I would like to try (I.E. Allergy testing). I left his office in tears. Dr. Devani was horrible and I would not recommend him to my worst enemy.
I have visited Dr. Devani's office on 4 occasions and each time was a great experience. Have had a basal cell cancer as well as melanoma removed. Happy with the results and the staff were very accommodating. The worst part of my entire experience is my allergy to the bandages I was using while I had stitches and I was delighted to find that Candice had a prescription for me to help ease the irritation. She even came out to the parking lot to give me the prescription as I had quickly left the office without knowing it was being written! Dr Devani's communications were clear, concise and informative. He ensures everything is a-ok and has insisted that I come back for a follow up. I would usually dread such a thing since I'm used to waiting in doctor's offices for what seems like multiple eternities... but I have never waited for more than a couple minutes at Dr. Devani's practice, so I will be back! Highly recommended... keep up the good work!
I have seen Dr Devani three times and the experience has been very positive each time. He does have a busy practice but he was very thorough with me. He found a basal cell cancer on my face and made an appropriate referral to a surgeon who was outstanding. I have since had a head to toe skin assessment done( at Dr Devani's suggestion) and a spot was found on my stomach that showed atypical cells( would eventually become cancer) and he removed this area on a subsequent visit. The nurses are polite, knowledgeable and good with any post -procedure information. I would strongly recommend Dr Devani as he is professional and does some very good work.
I have been to Dr Devani on 2 occasions and both times I found him very knowledgeable and helpful. Is he rushed - yes but not to the point that I felt I was being "fluffed" off. He took the time to explain on each occasion what he was going to do and how. I felt extremely comfortable with him.
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.
