I think I have been to every other Dermatologist in Alexandria - and even several in DC. Dr. Bray is hands down the best. He diagnosed something correctly that many others missed and his bedside manner is very open and calm.And, his office waiting area is nice, receptionists much nicer and more friendly than most doc offices. Seems very efficiently run. 5 stars for sure!

I'm a new patient - today was my first visit. Dr. Bray was very professional, nice bedside manner, and competent. He noticed some sun damage but didn't lecture me, gave me a thorough scan, didn't try to oversell me on anyprocedures, and didn't seem to be an alarm-est. I felt very welcome, and his cheery disposition was most appreciated!

Dr. Bray is always incredibly attentive and thoughtful. He never rushes during the appointment and does not jump to conclusions before you've finished explaining your problem.

It was my first visit to a dermatologist so I wasn't sure what to expect and I have no other doctor visit to base it off of. But I felt a bit rushed and wasn't sure if he was actually checkingfor anything. I'd turn for a look and he'd say right away, "yep good there too". I also felt he was looking at me as a young alarmist. Although I try to take the right precautions, I spend a lot of time in the sun for work and my family has history of skin cancer. I want to make a dermatologist visit a part of my annual check ups but I'm not sure I'll be going back to this doctor. I also felt that maybe this office was best for people who want reconstructive remedies such as botox, varicose vein removal, etc.
