Ultimately, I want to provide our patients with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that I care about their health, that I am aware of the latest treatments and that I am their partner in this until they are cured.

My experience was a very good one. I was seen in a very timely manner and the medical assistant was very kind and courteous. Dr. Alexander was easy to talk with and explained his findings with me. I will certainly be back.

Unclear billing statement sent at end of year. Looked like prices went up and dollar or more of charges were added to past appointments. Unsure if this was the case. A letter of explanation would have been helpful.

I was told I couldn't get in until after the new year...everyone was trying to get in before the holidays..i called a few weeks later on a Monday afternoon of all days, I was able to get in to see him before the new year and get my script the same day which I really needed. I was grateful and everyone was nice. Even after my insurance switched I was glad mine was still accepted. That really made my day

It was my first ever dermatology appointment and with Dr. Erik Alexander and he was AWESOME! I was immediately greeted with a smile by the receptionist and quickly had me set up by completing the necessary paperwork. After a few short minutes, his assistant pleasantly introduced herself as she escorted me to the exam room and charted detailed reason for my visit before changing into my exam gown. A few minutes later, the same assistant returned along with Dr. Alexander to discuss my skin condition, provide a diagnosis and most importantly, implement the action plan to resolve my skin issue. Within that short visit, I was able to get the answers and treatment plan I needed so that I can continue with the rest of my schedule while staying well informed. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised on the team’s efficiency during my first visit and I’m looking forward for my follow up appointment in a month! Dr. Alexander, you and your team ROCK!

I had a very good first appointment with Dr. Alexander. Unlike other dermatologist I've seen, he made eye contact while speaking with me and answered all of my questions without making me feel rushed. I had trouble with parking and the office allowed me to keep my appointment despite being a whopping 15 minutes late. The nursing staff was also very kind and professional. Dr. Alexander accepts Forward Health (Medicaid) so both my visit and prescription were free. All around a great experience.

Need to streamline the paperwork when checking in.
