I had an initial appointment with him. He was very kind and took his time. I didn't feel rushed. He answered all my questions and clearly explained next steps and treatment. I have not started treatment, and so I cannot speakto that. However, I feel confident that his recommended treatment will yield some positive results.

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 impossibleand 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).

My visit with Dr. Alexis today was excellent. My vist was for acne in which I have been battling for a long time. I felt his assessment was thorough and he took the time to review my concerns (he asked alot of questions). Dr. Alexis also explained in detail his prescribe regimen and made sure I understood before I left his office. I wanted to write this today because I have been to many dermatologist in the past and it always seems like I spent more time in the waiting room than I did with the doctor.

Dr. Alexis is great. This office is terrible. They never called me to tell me that the doctor no longer takes my insurance. When I showed up they didn't apologize, let me see him to answer 1 question, or let mesee a doctor that did still take my insurance even though she was there. Terrible office.

First off i filled out all the forms on zocdoc before hand and when i got to the office had to do it over again which wasted time. I did not see the doctor at the time of the appoinmtment oreven close. It inly took me about 10 or 15 minutes to fill out the forms and im being gracious withmyself. I waited about an hour after that to see him. The nurse took me to a room and asked me to change into a robe which i did then asked me to move into another room in robe and all, which was super unprofessional. After this i must have waited about 20 mins or more for the doctor to actually see me. He actually gave me a good impression, he seemed knowledgable. One wierd thing was that he said another nurse would come in and take pictures of my problem areas for a before and after which i regret agreeing to cause u can never be to careful and i dont want my face showing up on any site no matter the intention. Then i was given coupons for two if the prescriptions given and they turned out to be expired so i couldnt even get the medications. Overall im so upset and dissapointed. I feel the office i seen him on 59th was suuuuuper unprofessional and i was really hoping to be helped and that was a bomb!

The appointment was fine and just reaffirmed what I already knew. My only problem is with the follow through on the part of the office/doctor/assistant. I was prescribed 2 prescriptions, but I had a problem obtaining 1 of them. I called,left messages, even used the suggested 'klara' app, but I've only been told 'we will get this information over to the Doctor asap, he's in today'. Almost 2 weeks of this and no call back to remedy the situation.

Dr Alexis was professional and engaging. In fact, I commended him for this as Doctors who are sometimes listed as the best or one of the best in a speciality sometimes lack good bed side manners. I would definitely recommend himto anyone. The office staff are pleasant and patient throughput is noticeably quick and efficient.

I'm not sure what to think, though I think the procedure the doctor didn't have time to perform because he had a lot of patients, would've taken less time than having to schedule another appointment.

I came in to see Dr. Alexis with some anxiety due to the nature of my condition. Dr. Alexis patiently listened to my concerns, thoroughly discussed my condition and prescribed a treatment plan for recovery. He took the time to explaineverything. I didn't feel rushed at all in his presence. I exhaled after leaving Dr. Alexis's office because I finally found a dermatologist who understood my condition. Dr. Alexis also has an excellent staff --knowledgeable and kind. Wonderful doctor!
