I consider Dr Alan Gilbert, MD to be the best Dermatologist in Fort Wayne. He has been my Doctor since moving to Fort Wayne. He has been acurate in every diagnosis, and the care he has given me and my family is greatly appreciated. Gary Allen.

Bob Fort Wayne Dr.Gilbert has been my Dermatologist for probably 30 years and he has seen me through nearly every form of skin cancer including malignant melanoma on three different occasions with the third being metastasized... Dr Gilbert is a very professional and a most caring doctor. His early detection and biopsies allow me to continue to NEED his serves.
As always, it was a quick and satisfactory proceedure. I have always been very satisfied when I had to visit Dr. Gilbert's office.

Saw Dr. Gilbert for the first time 8/1/2017 I was concerned when I saw him for sebaceous hyperplasia and he never checked the areas to verify that was what I had. When I inquired about electric needle. He said he had never heard of such treatment. I was given an RX for a topical treatment the size tube was not available, they called md office, the next morning I called Dr office. they said they had the info and would call me when they got a reply, It has been 5 days still no call from Dr
Hi Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Appreciate your feedback.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gilbert for years. He also treated my son. He is a gentle,caring, efficient, and caring doctor. He keeps up with the latest treatments and medicines. He gives me the time I need to discuss treatments. Trust me, he sees just fine and I dread the day he retires. I once went to another local dermatologist on the other side of town and couldn't believe how badly I was treated by the Dr. and even by his nurse!
Indianapolis, IN |
Dr. Gilbert was very personable and professional. He explained what I had seen and advised me how to contact him in the future for any issue. As a skin cancer survivor this was very important to me.

I have been treated by Dr. Gilbert for many years. He is , by far, most proficient, kind, assuring, and gentle.
Orland, IN |
The doctor, medical and office staff were patient friendly and efficient. Efficient and healthcare do not always go hand-in-hand but they did in my three experiences with this team.

Ft Wayne, IN |
Excellent, to the point but at the same time attentive to my questions and concerns.
in Fort wayne |
Dr. Gilbert did not listen to anything I told him about my past. Medical history with my skin problems.. He was all about getting me on this new medication for the rest of my life , that nobody can afford to pay for... Although his diagnosis to my problem did give my more to research online to find out what I am allergic to that is causing my rash.
Hi Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Appreciate your feedback.

Everything went very well. Appreciated the timeliness and quick result reported to me. Allen Rhodes

As with any metropolitan based practice, wait times are long as well as having to schedule appointments weeks, if not a month out. I do prefer providers in smaller communities that serve the community more efficiently. Having said that, I do like Dr. Gilbert. Knowledgeable, will look me in the the eye and have a conversation with me. He has pride in what he does Practice wise, technology gets in the way. Modern medical practices require all info into a database. Tus, visits are long.

He needs to retire. He has a hard time seeing
Hi Thank you for posting a review. I appreciate your feedback.

I have been a patient of Dr Gilbert for many years. I always found him to be very knowledgeable and very caring. He will stay with you and answer all of your questions unlike many docs that are in and out in one minute. Wait times were less than average and the staff is very polite. I definitely would recommend Dr Gilbert to anyone looking for a dermatologist!
Ft Wayne, IN |
Dr. Gilbert has treated my family for over 20 years. I have had problems with eczema, melanoma, and precancerous cells. He is to the point, extremely honest and thorough. I recommend him highly.
in Avilla, IN |
Poor attention to patient, ordered expensive treatments & creams (which they just happen to sell in their office), 7 visits with no relief. I need to find a reputable, caring dermologist. I will never recommend this one!
