Dr. Wallace is awesome! I came in confident that I knew what my skin issue was. I was totally wrong and he was able to diagnose on the spot. When I asked if he was sure, he said “pick a number1-10”. I chose 7. He was able to give me 7 medical reasons why he was confident in the diagnosis! He was right and the medicine he prescribed already has me feeling better. His knowledge and professionalism is incredible.

Dr. Wallace treated me like I was member of his own family. He was extremely attentive and made me feel better about the symptoms I was having. His approach was thorough and well thought and made sure that I looked intoother areas of my health that might need attention, but not in a judgmental way. Nothing but high praises for Dr. Wallace and his staff!

Dr. Wallance was professional and personable. He was clear and concise in his delivery of information of his initial assessment. His staff was friendly and helpful. I actually liked that I could make my appointment online and complete formsprior to my arrival, which really reduced wait time.

The office messed up my information and charged me for an appointment my insurance already paid for, then delayed the process for 2 months refusing to admit they messed up until my insurance contacted them and I finally issued a creditdispute. Finally they admitted their mistake and I got repaid about 3 months later and hours spent on the phone. Incompetent office staff.

Maintaining my physical appearance as I encounter the aging process is challenging. I arrived at my appointment with a list of issues. I have been searching for a dermatologist who would provide me with solutions. I was pleased to learn Dr.Wallace has created a line of skin care products and treatments that were formulated for my unique skin tone. I will recommend Wallace of Beverly Hills to my family and friends. The service was excellent. I'm Smiling...Thank You Dr. Wallace!

It was a nice visit. Not too long a wait. Very professional service. I did not like that I had to pay for valet parking with no validation. $9! For less than an hour. Max is $18. One guy found 1hour parking but had to go and move his car. Otherwise, he was professional and genuinely wanted to help. I will be back.

He didn't have any interest in looking through the products I use, that I brought with me, to see if they might not be suited for my skin. He also barely even looked at my skin. Mostly he just tried to sell me his skincare line.

The visit itself went well. Everyone in the office was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Wallace ended up prescribing me a treatment and sent me on my way. When I went to my pharmacy to pick it up, no one fromDr. Wallace's office had called in the prescription and when I called their office to see what was taking so long,they were already closed and their answering machine was full. FULL. They had been closed for 15 minutes and their mailbox was already full which tells me they had been negligent about checking their messages and getting back to patients. The office is now closed for the weekend so I won't be able to get my prescription filled until Monday, which gives 2 more days for my condition to worsen. I would not recommend this office to anyone. So unprofessional!

Didn't listen to my issue and then after I told him I didn't want a certain type of medication and he agreed, he prescribed it but by a name I didn't recognize until I had already used it and it made my issue much worse.

Dr. Wallace is a no-nonsense doctor. He is very straightforward, but in the kindest way possible. His staff is really, really lovely! I came from a different doctor that I was extremely unsatisfied with, and Dr. Wallace is the complete opposite!He took the time to explain everything to me and answer my questions, and he's realistic in the sense that he expects the patient to do their part to improve their health. No excuses! I will never go to a different Derm again!

I arrived at his Beverly Hills office and valets parked my car immediately. The building was very clean and organized. Dr. Paul Wallace's front office assistants were very courteous and attended to me right away. Dr. Wallace saw me within 30minutes of my arrival, and was very patience in explaining several possibilities effecting my skin. At the end of the consultation, he recommended two separate treatments to combat my problem that I felt comfortable with. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a Doctor who takes the time to educate his patients during the diagnosing. I had a great experience! Oh, did I forget to mention that the office staff was great too! Go here, you want be disappointed!

I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Wallace and his staff. They are very helpful, very professional, very diligent, my favorite doctor I've ever had to see. They quickly diagnosed my issue and provided multiple options for treatment, they appealedmy insurance when they wouldn't cover a medication and have done so much leg work on my behalf. I cannot thank them enough.

I had a very positive experience. I walked in feeling insecure and hopeless regarding my skin but after speaking with Dr. Wallace and his staff, I felt much better & hopeful about my skin getting better. He was caring and straightforwardwith his communication regarding my skin. I really liked that he took time to acknowledge every patient that came in the office when he had time; he knew most by first name. Highly recommed.

Dr Wallace is extremely knowledgeable about skin care, maintenance, and problems. He has a "down home" approach while maintaining the utmost professionalism. His products are very effective and affordable. Considering the quantity usedand the quality; I would say he's undercharging. I was overall impressed even though this was a my first visit. Lastly, I am seeing pretty quick results with the fade cream.
