"Dr. Alyx and her assistant Hanna were absolutely amazing! Seriously so sweet to me and my little one who had to tag along. The place is very nice, big and clean. It was my first time going and I had a great experience."
"Friendly staff, scheduling was quick and easy and Alyx was thorough and explained everything clearly. Highly recommend Advance Dermatology"
"Alyx was excellent and my experience from the front desk/check in. There was a level of care and listening to my concerns and questions. Alyx is a warm and professional and I’m so happy I’ve found this office for the care of my skin as a woman of color. I’ve been to 3 other dermatologists poor care and poor patient care. It’s refreshing to have my questions answered and feeling valued as patient. Thank you AD and Alyx!!"
