Does not listen to patient. Was rude, arrogant, and unhelpful. Did not believe what I told him. I've never been so upset with a doctor in my life. Don't go to this jerk.

My husband and I both see Dr. Aleman twice a year. He diagnosed, and removed both of our melanoma skin cancers (thus saving our lives). We both value his opinions and we highly recommend him.

If you want to be treated like a number, go see Dr Aleman. He spent very little time with me even though it was my first time seeing him. He rushed, didn't allow me to ask questions and made me feel very bad because I have sun spots. What a waste of my money and time.

Misdiagnosed my skin condition and had to see twice. Very quick exam and not thorough and seemed annoyed at my questions and I felt rushed. Looking for another doctor who will make me feel comfortable and has much more expertise.

Not impressed with first visit with him. He spoke with me all of 5 minutes and prescribed multiple things which have made my skin a lot worse! My skin is so dry around my mouth I can barely smile. I am not happy that I had to pay $30+ for acne cream (I have eczema not acne) and my skin is darker and drier then it ever has been! I told him I had sensitive skin and the first warning sign on the face cream he prescribed says Do not use if you have sensitive skin. I do not recommend Dr. Aleman.
