Amazing experience. I was very early to my first appointment and they even fit me in early. I had some spots that needed a biopsy. Dr. Sax was very knowledgable and answered all my questions!

I do not have a problem with Dr. Sax but it was the front desk and the billing lady who messed up big time. They charged me saying I had a deductible on my insurance when i only have a copayment.Then when I called them to find out, the billing lady was not that pleasant to talk to. Turns out, they overcharged me by a lot and didn't even apologize for what happened and made it seemed like I did something wrong.

The whole experience was top notch! Friendly staff, not a long wait time even though I was early. Dr. Sax took the time to check out my situation thoroughly. His assistant was very courteous and explained what was going to happenand then followed up afterwards as to what I should expect. Rescheduling was done right there in the room and the check out was a breeze.

The doctor seemed to be very nice, for the 3 minutes I saw him. However, I feel there was a breach of doctor patient confidentiality strictly do to the fact of having an assistant do all data entry, and also beingin the room during time of examination for none other than this. Because of this alone, I would not recommend him to anyone. Especially those who respect their confidentiality when at a doctors office like myself.

My wait time was less than the time for me to pick up a magazine, find a story on the cover and almost turn to it. The Staff were prompt and efficient and very friendly. The Doctor was even better thanthat. took care of all he could, then made another appointment for the one surgical item. I was out of there in less than an hour when, with other dermatologists doing much less to me, I was in their offices upwards of 2 hours. Big plus and kudos to this doctor and his office.

I was able to get an appointment right away, which was great, and felt the Dr was competent. Not much warmth or interest in me--felt like a technician, which is ok. He doesn't need to be my best friend.

I have gone to Dr. David Sax for several years. I would without regard give him my highest recommendation. He is very professional and most competent in his field. He always cares and has been just wonderful in taking care ofmy skin problems. Today, I woke up with a rash and was able to get right in. He gave me a prescription and the rash is already almost all gone. He is a God send. G. B. Kenworthy
