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.

While the staff is good, the phone system is not great. At times I would have to wait several minutes before getting an answer from a separate office, who would then transfer me to the right office. If no one was available to answer at the office I needed, which usually consisted of a long hold, then I could only leave a message. There needs to be smoother access to the office needed.

Dr. Erik Alexander was great at explaining what was going on with me and took his time to answer all of my questions. He was not rushed nor he seemed to be distracted, I had all his attention and I was loving it. Definitely recommend!

I had some questions unrelated to the reason for my visit and Dr. Alexander took the time to listen and answer them. I still felt a little rushed but I appreciated him taking the time to listen and answer. Overall it was a pleasant enough experience. Everyone at the office was friendly as usual.

I was thoroughly impressed with Forefront Dermatology and specifically Dr. Erik Alexander. Dr. Alexander was kind, informative, and showed genuine integrity as a person. I wasn’t in the waiting area long, I wasn’t inundated with a stack of paperwork, and was given proper directions to the building. Only two points of constructive feedback would be having to pay for parking (be it structure parking in the building or street parking), and confusing signage on the 8th floor which caused me to double back once thinking I was going the wrong way. I would recommend Forefront Dermatology to friends and family and will continue to be a lifelong client.
