Wow this is the best doctor and doctor's office and I've been in, in a long time, Wait time was maybe 10 minutes very responsive, Office is very clean and smells good, which is good with everything going on, the nurse practitioners and the lady at the front desk and the doctor himself were all very nice people and educated me on my conditions and my prescriptions, He has very good bedside manner and is humorous, the coolest thing about him is that he's a retired USAF Colonel which is awesome I have all respect for what they do and what they went through so thank you Dr for your service as well, would I recommend this place, YES 100X YES if you need to see a dermatologist this is who you should go to

I have known Dr. Carrizales for almost 15 years. He is a honest person & is very caring, I have no doubt he is that way with each of his patients. I feel he gives his best advice to your questions and what you are seeing him for. He also stays up to date on the latest technology for all sort of treatments. I totally recommend Dr. Carrizalas and guarantee you will feel a great connection with him.

My appointment was observed timely. Dr Carrizales was pleasant, explained the procedure and what to expect, and was professional and knowledgeable. I was very satisfied with this visit as well as my prior visit. I recommended him to my daughter and she has since had her appointment and was equally satisfied.

I am genuinely sorry that our experience cannot be described in the glowing terms other reviewers have used. In my husband's case, I can only speculate that the concern we have is so routine that Dr.. Carrizales' interest wasn't aroused, OR, he just didn't have/didn't chose to spend the time. Moreover, the Dr. emphasized that the prescription was to be used TWICE daily (a.m. and p.m.). However, the prescription sent to the pharmacy stipulated use once a day. Please NOTE: if the prescription "works", we will be well pleased. We went to Dr. Carrizales for his help versus seek him as an acquaintance.

Dr. Carrizales is great! He is professional and competent. I have a spot on my face frozen off twice at another place and it was still there. Dr. Carrizales got it off in 1 visit and you can't even see where it was. I highly recommend him! His office staff is friendly and efficient.

I had to have a biopsy done to diagnose a rash. He did the biopsy on my right elbow. The stitches were constantly irritating the spot. No one when I called seemed to be concerned that it was possibly getting infected. Went in to have the stitches removed. It was definitely infected at that point. Still no real concern. Doctor said that it would heal better once stitches were removed. It took 2 nurses, lidocaine and the doctor to get 2 Stu out because they cut the tails too short. No one cleaned the wound when they were done. Just slapped some aquaphor on it and covered it up. Next day I had pus oozing out and ended up finding and pulling out a quarter inch of suture myself. I had to go to my primary doctor, who was appalled by this. I had a start of an abscess. She had to put me on antibiotics. I will never go back to this dermatologist, nor will I refer him to anyone else.

Dr. Carrizales has been my dermatologist for several years. When he moved his practice from Saint Peters to O'Fallon, Illinois, I elected to retain him as my dermatologist. That alone should tell the story. My most recent visit: helpful, friendly staff, easy to get to, nice new office.

I was very pleased with the care I received with Dr Carrizales and his staff. He was very thorough and professional but still very personable. His nurse Kozue Schulte was very helpful with the treatment and went out of her way to make me comfortable during the process. It was truly a pleasure to visit this practice.
