The visit felt rushed. I could also hear the conversation between and doctor and patient through the wall in the next room. I still haven’t received a call for any of my prescriptions.

Dr. Billips was amazing! She was friendly, funny, and kind. I don't think I've ever clicked so quickly with a medical professional. She immediately put me at ease, and I'm legitimately excited for my follow-up visit. Who knew finding out thesecrets of that weird shoulder mole could be so thrilling?!

Literally the worst doctor I’ve ever seen, she’s so rude, so hard to reschedule appointments with her, charged a bunch of money for very poor services. Overall super unhappy and never going back.

The doctor herself was a doll but I waited an hour before seeing her and spent no more than 15 mins in there. I told her some of my concerns and with barely any touch or look, she prescribed 4 things. What? No thanks, will look elsewhere.

before you are seen you must give personal information other than your insurance such as banking and credit card information. Before the appmt I tried several times to contact the office by phone only to get a male voicemail recording. Yetwhen in the office their sits a female receptionist who apparently doesn't take incoming calls.

Dr. Billips, I found very knowledgeable and answered all my questionsto my understanding. She was very patient, I never felt rushed or that I had asked a "you ought to know that" question.

I had a great experience with Dr. Billips! She was definitely in a bit of a rush but was extremely friendly and treated me like family. She clearly cared about saving me money (from prescriptions to advice on where to parknext time). I appreciated not having to fill out medical history information again in person after doing it online (which is the case so often).

Dr Billups and staff were friendly and courteous. Wait time was less than 15 minutes. The actual time spent with the Dr was short but she made sure I understood everything we discussed and asked if I had any questions. Very professional.

Dr Billips was a very sweet lady, however I had to wait over an hour in the office, and after speaking to others in the waiting room with me it was made clear that this is very common for this doctorsoffice (the long beach office at least) I was being seen for moderate acne, she was with me for no more than 5 minutes, disappeared, and then came back with hands full of sample antibiotics. So if you want a doctor to just give you a quick prescription maybe this is the one for you. I also think it is very aggravating that when you call the billing department it does not connect you to a live person or allow you to leave a message. All communication is via email. I have now requested copies on my billing invoice twice now.

This was my first visit Dr Billips was pleasant and very professional. After examination she shared her treatment plan. She explained her plan several times, I asked several questions to make sure I understood.. I must withhold my overall review for a few weeks into her treatment plan.

I love Dr. Billips, she is wonderful and makes you feel very comfortable. Her billing department is a bit screwy, unfortunately, so I recommend paying attention to your bills. You have to stay on top of them. I've had visits witha 5 minute wait time, and I've had visits with an hour and 15 minute wait time. I guess that goes with the territory of most doctor visits. I wish it wasn't the case.

Dr. Mavis is great! She was so kind and welcoming and listened to each of my concerns dutifully. I arrived right at my appointment time (LA traffic!) but was still seen within 10 minutes! I went in for some adult acneissues and she knew exactly how to help, and I'm already seeing differences. It was a quick but thorough visit. I would recommend Dr. Mavis to anyone seeking a derm in the LA area!!
