Dermatology reviews in Forest Grove

    Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery
    Dr. Dydzik was held up in traffic, so I never saw her.  The PA did a complete skin check, froze off several spots on my face, arms & hands and cut out and biopsied the spot on my hand and one on my face.  She suggested that I should have PDT treatments on my face, arms & hands.  PDT is a solution applied to the area & then you sit in front of a blue light which activates the solution to kill precancerous cells.  I looked up the treatment & it is a standard treatment for precancerous cells.  The biopsies came back precancerous and I made another appointment to have the spots frozen again.  At that time I made an appointment for the first PDT treatment, which was on March 10th.  At no time was I asked any prescreening questions that would indicate that I was not a candidate for PDT.  All the flyer that I was given says that it should not be used by people sensitive to blue light in the 400-450 nm range.  Who would know if they were sensitive to blue light in that range?  I do get very itchy if I get even a mild sunburn, but I was told that didn't indicate a sensitivity to blue light.  So I underwent the procedure with the solution applied, waited 1 hour for it to get absorbed, then under the blue light for 16 minutes.  The next day I was extremely red, as I was told I would be, but also starting to swell and extremely itchy.  I took Benedryl before bed but it didn't help, I didn't sleep.  The next day I didn't recognize myself, my face had swollen like a balloon!  I have thin lips and they were not visible, my eyelids were so swollen they were hanging down over my eyes and I could hardly see out. I don't have much of a neck, but what I had was gone.  The itiching was unbearable and my skin was oozing yellow serum which then dried to a crust.  Ice did not help.  I have rarely been this miserable. I called the Center and talked to someone in the PDT department and they said they would call in a prescription for something to help with the itching, which they did.  It did help and I was able to sleep some.  The oozing went on for another day, and then the peeling started, but the swelling took 10 days to completely go away.  I didn't go out of the house for a week.  This extreme reaction (at least it seems extreme to me) was not described as a possiblity at the Center.  The flyer lists swelling, itching, oozing, etc as potential side effects, but no one I talked to in the office emphasized any of it, they just talked about how great I'll look after the treatments and said it would be like getting a face lift. I called the office on March 19th and asked if there shouldn't have been some kind of screening, but told that there isn't. They said that the first treatment is actually lighter than the next 2 and that was the screening procedure.  I also told them I was very disappointed that no one had called to see how was doing, even after I had called and told them I was having an extreme reaction and needed a prescription.  I was told that schedules don't always allow for follow-up calls.  Well, my vet calls after the dog has been in for a procedure, so that really bothers me that following up on patients is not important enough to make sure there's time in the schedule to do it.  I cancelled my further PDT treatments.  In the 3 times I was in the office I never saw Dr. Rydzik or any other doctor,  The PAs were fine, but I would have at least like to have met once with a doctor.  I'm undecided at this point whether or not I'll go back for anymore skin checks or find someone else.

    Tavelli, Dr. Bert G.
    My family has been seeing him for about 10 years. This has included treatment for a number of things including melanoma and teen acne. I've had it confirmed from other dermatologists that he's considered one of the best. In dealing with him it's like dealing with just another adult, not a and quot;doctor.and quot; In other words, his bedside manner is relaxed and positive. He's open to listening to the patient's opinion.
