Verified Patient Reviews
Seen within 15 min of my appt time and only waited in the room 5 before being seen by the PA. She listened and explained thoroughly...efficient and professional. I'll go back.
Didn't get to see Dr. Mandrea but the doc I did see was wonderful. We addressed the issues I was having, got medicine prescribed, and gave me some samples to hold me over until they arrive. Going back in 3 weeks for a follow up
Dr. Mandrea is very thorough and professional. He is easy to talk to and projects caring and interest in what the patient has to say.
Dr. Steven Mandrea was professional, took the time to explain procedures to me, and was very thorough. I really liked him and highly recommend him.
Long waiting time
excellent assessment skills. Attention to detail. Good staff.
Very efficient service and provided with confidence.
I really felt listened to. Have new hope in my skin getting better. :)
Great and professional! It was a quick appointment and not a long wait time. Dr. Mandrea took the time to make sure I was satisfied and considered my wants and reasons for coming in. Also, appointment was easy to book online and didn't need to book months in advance! They sell some of their own products, too!
Office staff was very friendly. Dr. Mandrea was very personable. Overall, I will be coming back.
As always, he was cheerful, knowledgeable, and efficient.
This was the first time I was treated by Dr. Mandrea. I had seen other staff in the past. Dr Mandrea was very nice and listened to my concerns. He thoroughly checked my skin and made sure he treated every area I had concerns with. He even returned to the room after we thought we were done but I found another spot to be treated.
I don't normally write reviews unless I have really bad or really great experiences. This was definitely the latter! I booked my appointment day of (a few hours before) and I was seen right away when I got to the office. Dr. Mandrea was extremely personable, caring, and took the time to discuss different options for my acne. I would highly recommend him.
He is obviously very knowledgable, but I ended up waiting more than a hour. I filled out the forms on Zocdoc but was notified upon arrival that the online forms are incorrect. My actual time with Dr Mandrea was less than 10 min. I hope they don't charge me for the entire 30min/hour.
This place is all about churning numbers, my full body check up lasted 5 min and the wait time was 45min. I have been to dermatologists that photograph and document moles to see how they change. This was just a quick once over and you're out the door. Doctor was nice but not sure I'll go back
Terrific experience. One time, efficient and took his time to make sure I understood everything, and listened.
I was skeptical, since I already had injections but this time around the injections didn't hurt and noticed immediate results this evening. I would highly recommend Lakeview Derm and Dr. Mandrea
I love it he was very educated and new what my issue was instantly
Everyone was very professional, kind and prompt.
This was my first ever dermatogly visit. My appointment started late, but I'm not particularly bothered. Doctors in general make me very nervous, but Steve was incredibly friendly and had great bed side manner. I went it because I had scratched a mole a couple times in a week and it was irritated. He assured me if was a very normal looking mole. He checked out all my other moles(I have a lot), and told me they were fine and to keep an eye on one. Otherwise it was a good check up! Thank you!
Dr. Steven is a great doctor!
Dr. Mandrea was kind, patient, and seemed thoroughly competent. 5 stars
when checking out nobody could tell me how much the appointment was going to cost me, all i got was a rude shirty reply
Very knowledgeable and excited to help
Fast friendly and accurate.
As a retired nurse I have to give the doctor and staff an A plus. Treatments were done well with good explanation . Assistant was very competent. Will recommend this practice to anyone seeking derm services. Liked the self book appointment. May go back to check out some of the cosmetic services as well.
Dr. Mandrea was very nice and friendly! He was thorough and transparent with different treatments that I could do. He was running about 30 minutes late but did apologize for that when he came in. I would recommend him! Not at all intimidating to talk to or seek treatment from.
I arrived early and was taken back by the staff early. Dr. Mandrea and the nurses were friendly, helpful, communicative. My 11AM appointment was finished by 11:20AM. I would recommend this doctor and his practice.
Just my favorite doctor ever!
Dr, Mandrea was great! My appointment wasn't long but we covered a lot of ground and didn't feel rushed at all. I asked for additional explanation on a treatment option and Dr. Mandrea spent the time making sure I understood everything. All good!
1 hour wait for 4 minutes with doctor. While the doctor himself was fine I will not be returning due to the absurd wait.
Dr. Stephen was wonderful ! He has a way of putting you at ease with his friendly disposition. His care for the patient , along with his wonderful assistant , Helps you to place your whole being in the care of his hands .
He's wonderful and so kind! I highly recommend him!
Dr Mandrea was amazing!!
Doctor was great. The one hour wait until being seen was not.
After seeing multiple doctors and specialists, he was finally the one who figured how to help me, explains everything really well and kind
Dr Mandrea was very informative and courteous. While he explained everything clearly, as a patient it would be helpful to have the office give one a description of the condition. I was luckily smart enough to ask. The wait time would be improved if they wouldn't squeeze in so many appointments in the day. Lastly, it would helpful to have the reception assttant let a new patient know that standard protocol is to keep your insurance card and ID until one is called in for the appointment. Simple suggtions that would improve the new patient experience.
Although he seemed busy that day he answered all of my questions and performed the treatments that were possible during that same visit, the one that required more time was scheduled for the next appointment.
The doctor was running 30 minutes late. I waited in the waiting area and in the doctor's office as well. I had to refill out paperwork because they did not have the papers I filled out on ZocDoc. The doctor rushed me the entire visit and was walking out of the door as I was trying to ask him questions. He gave me direct answers without explaining them to me. He was really rude by not taking his time with me. Book this doctor if you want a five minute visit with him where he will rush you and then tell you come again. Not helpful at all!
Great efficient office staff, friendly doctor. Overall a very pleasant experience.
Was a great visit. I would highly recommend him.
Great doctor with a fantastic bedside manner. Highly recommend!
Thorough and took the time to explain everything to me
Awesome ! Very professional and efficient .
Highly skilled and incredible patient care! Absolutely recommended!
Dr. Steven Mandrea is an ultimate professional and extremely knowledgeable. But most important is his unlimited compassion for his patient. He is on target with every treatment and carefully analyzes the symptoms before discussing solutions. He is without reservation the best physician who has treated me. Bravo!
I went to see Dr. Mandrea for an annual skin cancer screening. Check-in was easy & I waited about 15 mins in an examination room before I was seen by the doctor. Dr. Mandrea was very friendly & professional. He answered all of my questions & even treated some old surgical scars I had. Overall, I was quite satisfied was my visit.
The wait times in this office are very long. Dr Mandrea is very nice but literally spent 3 minutes in the room with me after I waited for 40 minutes.
He was very personable, he listened and offered various treatment options.
Patient Doctor and knew of my Symptoms right away. Thank You.
Highly professional and respectful of his patients, well spoken and very articulate. He always seemed a little too hurried however, and understandably so since he must be very popular, but otherwise he is perfect.
Dr. Mandrea and his assistants are great. The people at the reception who do the check in are really horrible. Not very helpful and no manners. They should be fired.
I have never written a review for anything, but the visit to Stephen Mandrea may have been the worst Doctor visit of my life. I made a 10:30 appointment and showed up on time to out my paperwork. At 10:45 I was called back where I had a quick review of my background and reason for my visit. Around 10:50 I was left alone in the room and told Stephen would see me shortly. At 11:45 Steven Mandrea showed up, he was in the room for literally 45 seconds to look at a lesion I have. With no explanation of anything he just told me it was nothing but I should start using an acne body wash which he suggested I pick up at the front desk for 30 dollars. After that he walked out and told his assistant to schedule me for a 2 month check up. I hadn't been to a dermatologist in years and told him when he showed up I'd like a few things looked at as my family has a history of skin cancer, that never happened. He quickly looked at me and said 'you're fine nothing to worry about.' I wasn't looking for a 2 hour appointment, but for the money and time I put in I would never suggest him.
Steve knows his stuff, and he's a personable guy.
Attentive, intelligent, efficient, and empathetic. Highly recommended.
Dr. Mandrea was very professional, personal and thorough. Very nice guy.
Dr. Steven Mandrea was very professional and knowledgeable. My ailment was rather minor, so the conversation was brief and to the point, which I liked. He answered all of my questions satisfactorily and seemed very willing to help and make me feel comfortable with the treatment he was assigning me.
Dr. Mandrea was very professional and thoughtful. He listened to my concerns and took his time with my issue. I was able to get everything resolved in a timely manner. His staff is also wonderful!
Great! Very nice, professional, straightforward. Dr. Mandrea and all his assistants were top notch.
This was my second visit to see Dr. Mandrea. I booked this appointment with him based on the positive experience I had prior. He and his staff are thorough, happy to explain things, and do not waste your time. I recommend him highly.
Good visit, very nice, did thorough exam
He was very kind and helpful. He has a great sense of humor, and my visit was a quick and painless one.
Dr. Mandrea is very knowledgable and thorough yet efficient. The office staff is very kind and helpful also. Would def recommend.
Addressed all my concerns in an efficient and friendly manner! Would highly recommend Dr. Mandrea.
Long wait but worth it. He was quick, thorough and able to determine what I needed without a lot of unnecessary tests. Would recommend the office to anyone. Be prepared to wait though.
quick, knowledgeable and friendly. his assistant was great, too!
The only negative was the long wait, but in end it was worth it because he is a great doctor and really put my concerns at ease.
They actually had me in early. I was in and out in 20 minutes. Dr Mandrea is awesome, Fast , efficient , helpful and cordial This is my dermatologist going forward.
Excellent facility and staff. Highly recommended!!
The visit was great. Dr. Mandrea was very knowledgeable, explain all the option, which made for an easy decision on which procedure to follow.
Great diagnosis and I am already getting better!!!! Swelling down (cyst) and the pain is already subsiding. Wait was a little long, but that just means he is popular :)
he is very good
Excellent doctor and office. I had to redo my information as they said they were having problems downloading from the zocdoc site?!
The entire office staff was very kind, professional and helpful, we had multiple questions that were related to our health Insurence, mail away prescriptions and lastly Dr. Mandrea answered questions pertaining to treatment options for our teenage sons acne, and medication and treatment options and we left the office satisfied, had our questions answered,our teenage son had been taught how to apply new products and prescriptions will arrive in the mail. Thank you!!!
Long wait in the office and in the exam room. Then the time with the doctor seemed rushed. Nice staff, helpful nurse. But I didn't feel listened to. Seemed eager to sell me products.
Quite disappointed. Front desk girl was rude and abrasive, gave me no indication of approximate wait time or acknowledge that I had an appointment set, and yelled at me for giving her a print out of my insurance information instead of the physical card. Waited 40 minutes in the waiting room, finally got called back to an exam room, and then waited another 40 minutes for the doctor to finally come in. He spent exactly 30 seconds examining me, told me the mole I was concerned about wasn't cancerous, and when I asked what he based his conclusion on, he said it was because I said I'd had the mole for a while. I left with an uncomfortable feeling that if I am remembering incorrectly and haven't had it as long as I said I had, that it could be cancerous (all the other "signs" of cancer are there...). I will probably seek out another dermatologist for a second opinion. The office could have just had a bad day or gotten behind schedule, but no one acknowledged this to me up front or warned me that they were behind or apologized ahead of time. My 4:30pm appointment lasted until past 6pm, with a total doctor-face-time of less than 1 minute. I am not pleased and will not go back to this practice.
Both him and his staff were very friendly and helpful and professional. All of my questions were answered thoroughly.
Very pleased. Friendly staff, very professional.
The receptionists were friendly and the check-in as a new patient was fast and efficient. After the nurse saw me, I had to wait for about 20 minutes for Dr. Mandrea. At first I was worried that he might be busy and rushed. However, when he came in, he was fully aware that I had to wait and started by apologizing for the delay! This was unlike many other doctors who pretend as if the wait was no big deal! He then took the time to examine me and answer all the questions I had. I would definitely recommend this practice and Dr. Mandrea.
Doctor Mandrea was one of the best doctors ive visited. His staff was extremely helpful and kind. I would use him again!
This was my first experience at this office and it was quite enjoyable. From the secretary to the assistants to Dr. Mandrea, everyone was polite and helpful. I will certainly be going back again the next time I need to.
Fine. So far. "Bedside manner"?
I've been seeing Dr. Mandrea since I moved to Chicago in 2010. He's quick, knowledgeable and understanding. It's clear he knows his stuff. I'm so happy to see that he's on ZocDoc-- makes booking appointments that much easier!
