Dr. Andrew Alexis is kind, knowledgable and provides that "I've been through what you are going through factor" many dermatologistswho are not well versed on skin of color cannot provide. He was able to be compassionate, educational, and come up with a plan for treating my keloids (after being constantly told by dermatologists that steroid injectoins were my best option). Highly recommend!

The visit itself was satisfactory. No complaints, but I have had other dermatologists who were more thorough in their skin cancer screenings. However, Dr. Alexis and his staff simply refused to fill out pre-authorization paperwork for a prescription he submitted for me. I called 4 times and left a message with staff for the doctor or his assistant; not a single time did anyone call me back, despite having a 24-48 response rule they quoted every time. My insurance company sent them the paperwork 3 times, but the paperwork was never submitted. The final time I called, I asked the receptionist to please tell the doctor and assistant that if they do not call me back, I would be finding another doctor. They didn't call back, so I will be finding a different doctor.

This was a follow-up appointment, and the wait time was unusually long. Typically I am seen within minutes of my appointment time. Dr. Alexis was cordial as always and answered my questions, but I could tell he was moving quickly to get to his other appointments because he was behind schedule.

I have no complaints except for having to be seen by the doctor’s assistant and intern asking me the same questions pertaining to my reason for being there and having numerous pictures taken of my skin, from both of their phones. It would’ve been a better experience for me if I hadn’t gone through so many steps before seeing the doctor, who also took the very same photos.

Dr. Alexis is one of those people who was made to interact with humans on a compassionate level. He made sure that I understood every part of my diagnosis, he moved slowly and carefully and made sure I didn't feel rushed and was respectful in what could have been an uncomfortable situation (paper gowns are not luxurious). I left with an understanding of my diagnosis and feeling comfortable and confident about my next steps. Thank you!

I booked an appointment via ZocDoc. My appointment had been rescheduled without notification. The lady at reception told me that someone had called me and left a voicemail. I don't have voicemail set up on my phone so this is impossible and did not have a missed call. ZocDoc did not alert me to the new time. It is a 45 minute commute each way from my office. It is unacceptable in this day and age to not be informed of a rescheduled appointment (especially as I had made the booking online).
