I met very briefly with Dr. Graves for a simple issue. He was kind, funny, and professional - he was great. The from desk staff was rude and unhelpful. And co-pays were cash only, which was very inconvenient. Probably won't go back because the front desk staff was so unpleasant.

The wait was ridiculous. A simple consultation and i waited an hour and a half. Total overbooking. I made the appointment based on availability offered to work with my work schefule. Patients have lives too! Every room was full and only one doc. I sat in a plain office alone for an hour once i was moved from my half hour waiting room. Reception folks have bad manners as well. Chose another since nothing good stands out.

The wait time was long and the doctor really seemed to be in a rush; I had additional questions but decided against asking because of how rushed his demeanor seemed to be. Also, the office is cash only; that's very inconvenient. I ended up spending some of that long wait time looking for an ATM. It's 2017, there are plenty of reasonably priced credit/debit payment acceptance options out there for businesses.

I waited 2 hours to see the doctor. When he finally came, he sat with me for about 5 minutes. If you have at least 2 hours to wait and can get over the staff's nonchalant attitude, then come here.

Not impressed. Doctor did not knock on door before entering exam room. Doctor one-on-one was very brief - less than two minutes. Staff member first took photos of my condition (in poor office lighting)- doctor never looked in person, nor asked me specifics, but was quick to make diagnosis and prescribe medicine. But, perhaps I had a common issue, but that wasn't explained to me either.

Dr. Graves how are you still in business? He had too many appointments on Friday Sept. 23, 2016. He has no respect for his patients' time. My appointment was 10:45 am . I finished at 1:45 pm. He never explained my one condition, but I read the into and that is how I found out about my one condition. My friend that drove me had to pay extra money for the parking. The Curtis Building paring is: 1 half hour is ten bucks. Up to 1. 5 hour is $15 bucks. I was there far too long and had to pay $23. for anything over 1.5 hours.

The office visit was fine. The only problem was not knowing that the office only accepted cash for the co-payment. I had to leave and fine my financial institution to get cash because I was prepared to pay by check. It would be great if the office staff would inform new patients that they only accepted cash for their co-pay.

Staff was very pleasant, Dr.Graves was very professional and addressed all my concerns. I didn't expect to walk in the office and sit down in the chair so the wait didn't bother, besides I only go once a yr and it was worth it.

We came all the way from Jackson, NJ to see Dr. Graves. We were looking for someone that specialized in black skin care and found him online. I read the reviews before booking an appointment, but didn't let them alter my thoughts. Upon arrival I was quite impressed with the office location, decor and staffing. Everyone was very nice. Unfortunately, we waited in the waiting room for 1hr and 15 mins. Then we waited in the office for 15 mins before we actually saw the doctor. Dr. Graves was very effecient, very kind, very helpful and very knowledgeable. He took time with us and answered all of our questions and concerns. He did not rush us. What i found most impressive were two things: (1) that he actually read the online note that I wrote when I made the appointment so he already knew what my concerns were and (2) that his amazing and just as knowledgeable wife (Leslie) works along side of him and made us feel just as comfortable and welcome. It was our first visit and besides the $30 dollar parking garage ticket and the hour and a half wait, it was all good! God bless him and his practice.

Dr. Graves is extremely knowledgeable and he was able to accurately diagnose my problem immediately. I do not doubt his ability as a physician. However I felt his bedside manner was horribly poor. I have a skin condition located in a intimate area. I requested specifically for a male physician exactly for this reason. Dr. Graves walked in with his medical assistant and without asking or even explaining, his MA, took a picture of the area zooming in with an IPAD. My next issue is that, Dr. Graves prescribed me medication that my insurance did not cover. I'm sure it'll work but I wont be able to use it because its not covered by my insurance. I went to the pharmacy only to find out that I owed a large sum for a bottle of a compound he recommended. I do wish that Dr. Graves would have had the foresight to recommend a medication that would be financially viable and also treat my condition. Though Dr. Graves knowledge of medicine was impressive his lack of understanding people and empathizing is his greatest flaw.

After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant on keeping my appointment with Dr Graves. However, I found the staff to very kind and professional. I also called an hour before to make sure he was on schedule and in the office. My wait was 15 min. I did wait in the exam room for extended periods of time but overall my time was less than an hour. He had a consolation with me in his office in which he reviewed the treatment I should follow. Again very thoughtful and professional.

He was fast and efficient when he did get to me. It seemed like he was overworked. I spent a lot of time waiting in the exam room without any magazines or anything to do. Overall, I spent nearly 2 hours in the facility with about 10 minutes of time with the nurse and doctor combined. About par with most doctor experiences in the US.
