A waste of time and money

I've seen Dr Andrews for over a year paying out lots of money to see him for 5 mins taking medications that dont work and I call to get a different prescription and the staff either doesn't answer or they never call you back and if they do answer the snobby lady that checks you in gives you an attitude they make you feel like you're not important.

Federal and State a Retiree

I have known and have been a patient periodically of Dr. Andrews from time to time for many years. He has always been helpful, courtesy and professional . Staff support has been generally good however waiting times are generally longer than average. I will continue to use Dr. Andrews for Dermatology needs

One Star

I had scheduled a procedure called Fraxel. Of course after you leave the consult then more questions pop up. However I was told that I would have to come back in to discuss as Dr Andrews would not be available by phone!. The day of the procedure, the nurse asked me if I was taking Retin A, aspirin etc. Rather late to be discussing what should have been reviewed with the patient at the time of scheduling or at least a couple of weeks prior to the procedure! My additional questions were taken as a personal affront both by the Dr and the nurse as if it demonstrated an uncertainty on my part and they refused to work with me. I was completely blown away by the lack of professionalism and an unwillingness to listen to legitimate questions from the patient.

Caring and competent

Dr. Andrews diagnosed and treated me for a skin disorder that had been misdiagnosed by my family doctor for six months. I had previously been given four different drugs for an infection, and the rash continued to spread. I was given four different antibiotics which did not help and after spending hundreds of dollars, saw Dr. Andrews. He diagnosed me with a contact dermatitis and prescribed a steroid medication and the rash cleared up within three days. I only wish that I had visited him first; next time I'll know better.
