Yesterday I had an appointment. Sadly, because of rudeness and unprofessional secretary service I left their office without meeting Dr Elias. I had an appointment, nobody called me before to remind and to make sure I'm coming. I had to call by myself and make double check. When I came there, secretary with grumpy face asked me questions and filled up form. After this she told me to go outside and to wait there. She said they will call me. The office was completely empty and outside was extremely hot!!! What kind of service is it?? If there's a policy in your office, you should to inform your patients about this. Shame!! Disgusting and disrespectful

I hate to rate a decent physician with one star because of his staff, but I am compelled to do so. i have had many interactions with the staff and they are consistently rude, unkempt, and not responsive. I requested to speak to the doctor to address the issues his staff are unable to, and they refuse to allow me to do so. There is no way around the huge problem in this office - THE STAFF. Unfortunately, the patient experience is so poor, and the oversight so lax, that I will not return. There are so many good dermatologists in this area that I choose to visit one with a good patient-centric experience, and leave this bad memory behind.

Perfect experience with Dr. Elias. Finally found a dermatologist who explains the procedure in terms that you understand. He is timely, pleasant and most definitely a dermatologist with experience. My whole procedure was a breeze.
