The visit with the doctor was excellent. However, the check in was painful: I had filled out all the information online at Zocdoc but the administrative person at the doctor's office responsible for receiving the paperwork had not receivedit. So I had to fill it all out all over again, on paper before I could see the doctor. It was a frustrating experience. I recommend that somebody confirms that the online information actually arrives at its destination.

I visited Dr. Bean after having a TERRIBLE experience nearby earlier this week with the Dermatological Association Of Texas (on 1401 Binz St). Dermatological Association Of Texas tried to make me pay out of pocket even though my insurance coversdermatology, I refused and left immediately. I think it was a blessing in disguise because I ended up making an appointment to see Dr. Bean instead. First of all, I had ZERO issues with my insurance at this office and paid my usual co-pay. Office staff were very friendly and accommodating unlike the rude and incompetent staff at Dermatological Association Of Texas down the street. Dr. Bean sat down with me and listened to my concerns, asked me questions about my previous skin history and then gave me his assessment. The medication will not even cost me anything because of a program and my insurance (so thankful as a student). He said to call back in a month after using the medication if it hasn't worked, but he said it's been very successful in his experience treating this condition. I'm hopeful it will work as I googled his assessment afterwards and it seems spot on. Wait time was about 15 minutes, not bad. Would definitely recommend this dermatologist!

I have been to multiple dermatologists. This is the first time that one has literally sat down, had a personal conversation with me- included me in the plan of care. He took the time to find coupons for me. He isjust a kind man. I look forward to my follow up with him. I did have to wait a little bit, but I think that's because he takes time to talk to his patients (unlike the 5 minute drive by you will receive at other derm offices). would recommend him

Dr. Bean was running late but spent adequate time with me as a new patient and didn't make me feel rushed. He knows his stuff and prescribed me a medication that will hopefully help me out. He even asked me tocall him in a week so he could evaluate my progress without having to come in for a Re-Check appointment. Really appreciate that, especially if it saves me a copay!

The visit was fine as was the staff on duty. The only turn off I experienced was that I had to fill out paperwork manually AFTER I had prefilled it via zocdoc. I had filled it out since last week butfor whatever reason had not been printed out by person in charge.
