What People Say About Dr. Alvin Clair, MD

Have appreciated Dr Clair’s professional knowledge & treatment for a long time. Switched to him after not being as impressed with another dermatologist our then-teenager saw. Family history of skin cancer makes one more vigilant w/skin checks. But I especially want to recognize *Sandy* as a treatment rockstar! Dr Clair aces diagnosing, & his &/or Sandy’s spot-on treatment have been very effective for us for several issues over the years. I also value Dr Clair’s dry humor & communication skills even more now that we have a kid in 3rd-yr med. school.

I had a very small squamous cell carcinoma on my shin. Dr. Clair cut and froze the spot. I went back in three months and he put me on Efudex ointment twice a day explaining that it would kill any cancer cells left. I developed a sore about the size of half dollar and a red swollen area about 2x3 inches. After being in so much pain, I changed doctors and found that he had overtreated me. Had to have surgery to correct the problem. And see wound specialist.

As someone that is considered a pediatric dermatologist, I was shocked at his approach. He never laid a hand on my 11 year old over 2 issues that were concerning, nor did he chart the size of a mole that has drastically changed in shape and size over the past few years. I should have believed the reviews. Front desk staff was amazing, but nurse and doctor were beside themselves that I had to bring my other kids. I am also furious that I need to seek a 2nd opinion- repeat.

I went to the dr regarding my hair that was coming out, facial hair and dark spots on face from shaving hair. he was in the room with me less than 10 mins stating that the hair loss is just my thoughts and that I need to just leave my thoughts to the Lord. With the facial hair, he stated that I need to get a disposable razor and shaving cream and shave it. Why would you tell a woman that?! with the dark spots, he said that they will eventually go away. i honestly felt like he didn't care.

Has a great way of communicating complex ideas into words that I understand. It has been very helpful in me understanding my skin issues and for that, I am grateful.
