Verified Patient Reviews
Quick, professional, and courteous.
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!
Dr. Bray is great! He's always friendly, helpful and efficient. He offers the options for treatment and explains each one to you in a way that's easy to understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Bray.
He seemed hurried and it felt like I didn't have his full attention. I felt rushed and didn't get all my questions answered.
It can take a while to get an appointment, but once you do, there is little wait time and the office is extremely courteous and professional. Dr. Bray has been seen by many members of our family and we are all pleased.
Took care of a 15 year problem with two visits.
Dr. Bray is great! My appointments with him are very quick and efficient. I never have to wait in the waiting rooms for more than 5 minutes. Dr. Bray is very knowledgeable, he explains things very thoroughly and makes you feel at ease. Getting an appointment with him is always easy. I definitely recommend him!
Clean, modern, and organized office with attentive front office staff set the tone for my visit. Dr. Bray and immediate staff were friendly and professional. Highly recommend.
Prompt, professional, courteous. I highly recommend Dr. Bray
Professional, competent, and a very nice guy.
Very good all the way around. I will return to Dr. Bray in the future.
Dr. Bray is wonderful. However, I was told a prescription had been sent electronically to my pharmacy, but it was not.
Hey was great - provided good information and didn't try to oversell on any products.
When I come for my appointment, Dr. Bray always knows how to treat a patient. I have had acne issues all my life and it gets frustrating but when I come for a visit Dr. Bray always know his information and what to medication to give a patient. Also, all the staff at the office is wonderful from speaking to the front desk staff and medical assistance/staff.
It was a wonderful visit.
The office seems to be run efficiently, and I feel as if my time was respected. I was seen relatively soon after my appointment time.
Dr. was extremely personable and thoroughly explained everything he did and my options for treatment. I will definitely continue treatment with him and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Dermatologist!
He always listens and takes his time to explore my concern. He is thoughtful and willing to answer all of my questions. Great doctor!
Dr Bray, is a very professional and friendly, i came with a skin condition that has being going on for sometime (not a usual skin problem) and he figure out right away.
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 any procedures, and didn't seem to be an alarm-est. I felt very welcome, and his cheery disposition was most appreciated!
A friendly professional team.
Very nice office and staff. Dr. Bray was quick and efficient and very clear. If I had had any questions or concerns, I have no doubt Dr. Bray would have answered my questions.
Quick, cordial, spot-on diagnosis. Everything I look for in a doctor's visit.
Dr. Bray was friendly and professional during my appointment. He listened to all my concerns and took the time to answer my questions. I usually feel rushed and hurried during most appointments I have with other doctors, but I felt that Dr. Bray was attentive and thorough.
Outstanding medical review and analysis of my skin conditions. Procedure performed with superior technical skill. Exceptional, understandable explanations of all my medical situations. Most highly recommended to anyone seeking the top of the line, best dermatology care. Nurses and Administrative staff great also. I got superb consideration and treatment from all. Thanks.
He was very cordial, communicated clearly, and open about cost and services available.
A bit of a wait, Dr. Bray was nice and the staff was professional. I like that you make your appointment in the back instead of having to go back to the receptionest.
Overall, polite, friendly, and xeroed right in on the small red spot on my ear, and took care of it right there. I will definetly use once or twice a year as checkups.
It was great! I highly recommend Dr.David W.Bray.This my first visit the office was really nice and comfy . and the stuff are very helpful.
Dr. Dray was awesome as always.
Dr. Bray was great -- quick, personable, and knowledgeable. I'd definitely see him again.
Dr. Bray was efficient and professional. I will definitely use his expertise at any day.
Excellent dermatologist. The best.
Very nice doctor and staff. The office is nicely appointed and updated all around.
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 checking for 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.
Modern, clean and bright setting. Dr. Bray is very friendly, efficient, and professional. Staff are all welcoming and efficient.
Dr. Bray was terrific and took time to listen to my concerns. Will definitely see him again.
Wonderful and to the point?!
I have been going to Doctor Bray for about 1.5 yrs. He has been incredibly helpful with my acne problems, and has always done a thorough job explaining my options and answering any questions. The other staff in the office are also quite friendly and it's always been a pleasant experience visiting! Thanks!
Dr. Bray was wonderful. Very patient with my autistic son!
It was ok but for some reason I felt kind of rushed don't know if it was just me or if in fact I was really being rushed.
I saw Dr. Kluger. She was friendly and knew what to look for in order to treat me. She was compassionate and considerate. Cathy
Dr Bray was spectacular. I went in feeling anxious, and embarrassed as you would with any skin issue. He was polite, professional, precise, and extremely sensitive to me. He answered ALL my questions, allayed my fears, and had me on my way feeling better already. AND I went in with my two toddlers in tow, and he was the sweetest about it!
Great dermatologist! Thorough, knew his stuff. Bedside manner was so-so, felt a little rushed but I didn't care. He still gave me the right prescriptions and was pretty good. Shame this doc doesn't participate in the ZocDoc eforms, had to to fill some out when I arrived. No biggie. The only complaint I would have about this office would be about the RN intake. No vitals, blood pressure, weight or height taken. Not even asked on their forms. Never been to any doctor's office before where they didn't take basic vitals, but not too worried about it.
THE BEST, and one of the most CARING, kind, cheerful, positive and knowledgeable doctors and dermatologists I have ever been to.
Dr Bray and the staff get gold stars in all possible rating areas!
I have gone to this practice for a few years now. Very happy with all of the Doctor's; Smith, Simpson, and now my first visit with Dr. Bray. He was very warm, and nice, offered a few options for my situation and was very kind and understanding about my low pain threshold, making extra efforts to make sure things went as comfortably as possible. While I would highly recommend any of the Doctors here, I will most likely try to make my appt's with Dr. Bray from now on! My only complaint, is that I had to wait about 40 min. for my appt. today. In the past, I have never waited more than 10 min. and it made me late getting to work.
Im glad me and my boyfriend we visited in his office. Thanks Dr.Bray
He's the best dermatologist that I have ever had.
Very nice office, very professional I would highly recommended him
Professional and friendly people, would recommend for good treatment
I appreciated the courtsey and consideration I was given when disrobing and being exaimed. I am older and not that comfortable sheding my clothes for strangers.
The front desk staff was nice. The nurse who walked me back to the room was less than friendly so I was little nervous at first of how the appointment was going to go. However, I thought Dr. Bray was great. He was very friendly and professional. He explained exactly what he was going to do and wanted to make sure I was comfortable with the procedure. The nurse that assisted in my exam room was also very friendly and professional. My appointment started right on time. Overall it was a good visit. I'd definitely recommend him to friends.
Dr. Bray listened to my opinion and definitely took that into account during my visit.
Dr. Bray is a fantastic dermatologist. He explains things well and clearly. He takes his time and doesn't rush.
I was very pleased that he was able to correctly dianois my symptoms and give me the proper medication to cure it.
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. He is honest about potential side effects or how well a given prescription should work as well. I always leave feeling heard and encouraged.
I really liked doctor bray he was very attentive and very detailed. And he made me feel very comfortable as if I had been patient for years the reptionist victoria was very very pleasant and his assistant joy was awsome I will look no further for a dermatologists . Dr Bray and his team is definitely what I've been looking for and I would highly recommend this team.
Professional, very friendly staff and especially Dr. Bray. Very caring and dedicated doctor.. Liked his friendly greeting when he first walked into the room and throughout the office visit..Liked the use of technology in setting the appointment, during the visit and follow up with meds. highly recommend this to my family and friends and look forward to my next visit..
Dr. Bray is great and the whole office is wonderful. They are prompt and courteous. I've taken my son there as well, who is only 6. Dr. Bray was excellent with his check up as well.
Dr. Bray was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Very satisfied with my visit.
He didn't seem very knowledgeable. He was almost timid during the examination.
Very nice, helpful in regard to my rosacea. Would recommend!
