Dr. Erik Alexander is wonderful! He takes the time to listen carefully and then prepares his treatment plan. He answers questions and his nurse is available for follow up calls. I highly recommend Dr. Alexander and his staff !
in Milwaukee, WI |
Dr. Alexander is The Best. Scheduling is easy, he always sees you at the scheduled time, and his work is top-notch. You can tell right away that he's very bright and very personable and professional. His nurses are great! I have had other skin docs in the past, and none of them are anywhere near as good.
Waukesha, WI |
From the moment I walked in to the phone call with test results, I've been very impressed with the level of care provided by Dr. Erik and all those at Forefront. Unlike other docs, you don't feel rushed here. You feel the Doc and staff genuinely care about you and your health.
Milwaukee, WI |
I see Dr. Alexander yearly to get a complete skin check. He's very professional, taking care to answer my questions. He removed a growth, and I was pleased to get the results very much faster than the "up to 10 days" timeframe. Luckily all was A-OK, as he expected things to be. Would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
New York, NY |
Dr. Alexander and his staff were very welcoming. They listened to every concern, checked the issues, and explained what the “abnormalities” were and why they were there. There were also no lectures.

Personable and listened to our concerns. Was knowledgable and answered all questions.
Eric was punctual, attentive, and very helpful. He listened to my concerns, then explained his observations and suggested treatment options. By far the best visit to any dermatologist I've ever had.

Green Bay, WI |
I visited Dr. Alexander for a baseline and a few concerns. His staff was professional and courteous. The appointment was pleasant and thorough. When finished my husband was registering for a baseline visit and Dr saw him right away so we didn't have to return another time. I was extremely pleased with the service and professionalism.
Bethesda, MD |
He's a cool easy going guy and good Doctor. Although, sometimes he's in a hurry. if you have a question just ask it, he's good about answering. I like him but sometime you have to slow him down a bit.
Hi Thank you for the feedback. I appreciate you taking time to leave a review.
in Milwaukee, WI |
Although Dr. Alexander was courteous and professional, I felt he rushed through my appointment. He didn't address all my concerns, which were the numerous moles I wanted removed. He did remove most of them, but didn't ask me if I wanted him to treat more. After I got home and looked in a mirror, I wish I would've been the opportunity, while still in the office, to look in a mirror to see if, at that time, I was satisfied.
Hi Thank you for posting a review. I appreciate your feedback.

My visit to Dr. Erik Alexander went very smoothly. After booking the appointment, a reminder phone call was sent. It was easy to find the office, and waited for less than 5 minutes after checking in before seeing the doctor. The assistant and Dr. Alexander were both friendly and professional.

Luckily a spot on my back that my wife Chrissie was worried about (and I could not see) turned out to be harmless, but Dr. Alexander found and froze a spot on my cheek that I was concerned about (it never really healed). Don Gardner

Saw Dr. Alexander for a lesion that appeared on my hand seemingly out of nowhere. He prescribed a specific lotion, and 2 weeks later, it is hardly noticeable. I can't ask for much better results than that. Staff is friendly and professional. Will definitely be going back for future derm appointments.
Thank you for the 5 star rating and taking the time to post a review.

I have a great experience with this doctor. All appointments are with very little if any waiting time. Doctor is very attentive and gives exactly the treatment needed, no less and no more. Staff is very nice and helpful. Also takes my insurance which is great (not all doctors do).

Dr. Alexander is a straight to the point, no nonsense doctor. I like that. He doesn't chit chat but goes into detail when he is discussing what he sees and find and if you need to worry about it or not. I would highly recommend him.

Milwaukee, WI |
I am a new patient and my experience was a good one from start to finish. I was welcomed at the front door that was nice! These days that can be a challenge. A friendly welcoming greeting in a new situation is always nice. I waited about ten minutes and was taken to a room and a tech came in to get my pertinent information she was polite and made me feel comfortable. After that was finished the dr came in was very friendly and addressed my needs. He was friendly professional and a pleasure.
in Milwaukee, WI |
He was very kind, friendly and professional. He seem to know what he was doing and got it done. No playing around. He got right to the point. I would recommend him to anybody who needed a dermatologist. As a matter of fact, I already have.
Dr. Alexander and his staff are top notch! Professional and friendly from the time I walked in until I left.
in Menomonee Falls, WI |
Top notch doctor and staff from the moment we walked in the door. Dr. Alexander made us feel comfortable and explained our options thoroughly so we could make an informed decision about treatment. All staff we encountered were welcoming, friendly, actually smile (rare to find these days) and seemed to enjoy their jobs and taking care of patients. Wonderful experience! So glad we decided to change doctors. Definitely worth the farther drive!
