Patient Reviews (1)
My husband has infiltrating basal cell on his nose. Dr. Lex never got close enough to look at my husband's nose, nor did he even physically touch my husband's nose. I was asked to point out where the biopsy samples were taken by the dermatologist. Strike one. It took a month for Dr. Lex's "people'" to answer this question, 'Will our insurance cover this?" The answer, after a month, is that we are out of Network. Strike two. Why wait for strike three? We found another surgeon.
