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.

Visit was very informative but the wait was too long. However, I appreciate the Doctor explaining the day of my visit was an unusal type of day with lots of emergencies. The receptionist was very friendly and the lady that came in to explain the eye cream was very nice. However, the young lady that took me to the room Alegra was not informative or friendly.

The environment at Dr. Graves office was nice and the staff seemed very friendly.I spoke with Dr. Graves privately in his office and he was patient in explaining what I needed to do to care for my condition. He appears to have a warm and caring approach.The only thing I can say is that the wait time is a bit long and perhaps generic medications should be prescribed first for affordability as everyone may not be able to afford certain name brand medications prescribed unless it is absolutely necessary.

Showed up early for my mid afternoon appointment to a packed waiting area. I was allowed to sit in the adjacent conference room with the pharma reps. Waited 30 min before someone checked on me again, waited another 15-30 min before being seen. (mind you my car that is parked around the corner is now running over, but o well.) Saw the doc for 7 min who seemed nice, he instantly recognized my condition which matched my previous diagnoses elsewhere. Then he excused himself to see some other patients.... I waited another 30 min till he returned to take a sample. Then he left again! By now i had to quickly use the restroom, so i ran out to the lobby of the building with the office key (like in 3rd grade) and was back within 10 min.Dr. Graves saw me within 10 min after i returned and mentioned my (bathroom break) as rudely leaving to go tend to my metered car .(Internally fuming, i let it go). We concluded shortly thereafter with my prescription and my 20min of total care took approx 3 hrs. I walked back to my ticketed car livid. This guy runs a very commercialized dermatological assembly line and although he seems like a nice guy has only $ and not actually treating and curing patients as his #1 priority. I'm a capitalist and this makes me sick. DO NOT GO HERE!

This doctor is very good. I admit I was nervous, because it is embarrassing talking to a male about what I consider female issues. He was very comforting, and very knowledgeable about skin disorders. This was my first visit and everyone was very professional. Yes it is a long wait but I was alright with it. I think of it like when you are good and have a good team. Everyone want good service. It's only one doctor and he takes his time explaining everything. Everywhere I turned his staff spoke, no attitudes or rude behaviors. Keep up the Good work and see you next month.

Dr. Graves is always kind, professional and apparently very popular. The downside is that you'll have to wait more than an hour before he can see you....... only for 5 minutes. Then at least another 20min for any in-house treatment you may need. So today I was scheduled for a 2 pm visit and ended up spending there more than 2 hours!

This time I actually didn't wait super long (although I did wait in the waiting room, then wait in the room for him, then he moved me to another room and I waited some more). Last time I waited for almost 2 hours before being seen and he acted like that was normal. Nice guy, but seems to overprescribe medications and specify non-generic medications so I do wonder about his priorities and ties to pharmaceutical companies when I come away with huge pharmacy copays every time.

With the exception of the very polite and attentive front desk ladies and "triage" nurse, my experience was one of the worst I have had in a medical office. I made the appt on Zoc Doc for 2pm and arrived 10 minutes early. I filled the paperwork out online ahead of time and was quickly signed in and seated in the waiting room. I waited about 20-25 minutes and asked about how much longer before I was seen. I was told they didn't know and that they had 2 people ahead of me. I expressed concern because it was the middle of the work day and I needed to get back to the office; the appointment was made for 2pm. The office manager came out and while she was polite in her words, but clearly frustrated with the situation. She was on the defensive and told me my appointment was for 2:15; I had to pull up the text confirmations to show her it was for 2pm. She then tried to tell me I was late, to which I explained I was 10 min early. She went on to say they had to do the paperwork; I replied I filled it out online ahead of time. She said they could not enter it on their end until I arrived and that it takes time because I was a new patient (why they don't explain that ahead of time is beyond me). I said I would wait another couple of minutes (I really needed to see a dermatologist) or I was going to have to leave. They got me in with the nurse right away, who was very helpful and polite. She took my info, and gave me a gown to change into. I waited 10 minutes or so for the doctor, during which I could hear his entire conversation with the patient next door (talk about privacy). He came in without knocking, wearing street clothes (weird). I explained my issues and he addressed the 2 specific complaints with detail, but when I asked for an annual check-up he BARELY looked at me. Didn't even lift my hair to check my shoulders! I am blown away that he has a license to practice and that this office is in business. Just before leaving for my appt, a coworker told me her horror story of going to this doctor and I so wish I had that information with enough time to cancel. Now I have to make sure my insurance will let me see another doctor this year because I cannot trust that check up. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS.
