Surgeons >Bendetson Peter R Md
His secretary is a b..... !
waist of time and money!
Had great experience.
I am surprised at the two negative reviews here. My experience over a 5 year period was quite different.
Admittedly, I have not seen him since I moved to the west coast in October 2000, so I cannot speak to his performance since then. But during 1995-2000, he solved quite a few persistent, stubborn, and troubling problems.
1) Cleared my acne for three years -- from 1998-2001 (I moved to the west coast in late 2000, so he could no longer treat me). From 1985-1995 I had been treated for acne by various dermatologists with little success. These treatments included multiple courses of Accutane. Dr. Bendetson, on the other hand, put me on another course of Acctuane, but he took into account the fact that my acne always returned post-therapy and adjusted the regime appropriately.
2) Cleared my keratosis pilaris on my upper arms. Again, over the years, I had seen multiple dermatologists who had prescribed me various creams that did not work. Dr. Bendetson suggested an OTC lotion (Epilyt lotion) that resolved the issue within three months. The keratosis pilaris never returned.
3) Removed some large moles with little scarring. He removed several large and strange looking moles. I have trouble finding the scars where the moles once existed. On the other hand, when I went to skin surgeons for the same procedures, I ended up with long lasting and visible scars. Dr. Bendetson's cut and cauterize method worked much better.
Of course, not everything went swimmingly: not everything was resolved on the first try, but that's dermatology. Let's just say he had a better track record with me than my previous three dermatologists (and any dermatologist I have seen since).
agreed that he is incompetent. I had the same feeling as the other reviewer. I had the distinct feeling that he was incompetent. He did not give in-depth answers to my questions.
I visited Dr. Bendetson to look remedy for my eczema. After examining me for 2 seconds only, he gave me an ointment for it. The appointment took 2 minutes total!
I came back for a follow up because my eczema came bask after I had stopped using cream, which I was supposed to use for 2 weeks.
Dr. Bendetson did not have a record and did not remember which ointment ha had given me the first time around. So he gave me another one.
As I was in the office, I also asked Dr. Bendetdon for something to cure my acne as I am a 27 y.o. woman who still breaks out regularly. Without any inquiries about my skin he gave me a skin cream and a prescription for pills to help with my acne. I asked doc if medicine he prescribed would interfere with the birth control pill I am taking. He said no. I asked again if he was sure about it, because my friend got pregnant when she was taking pills for her acne problem. Doc just said he was "sure pills did not interact with birth control because noone came back pregnant yet.”
A week later when I went to my gyno she had enlightened me that antibiotics Dr. Bendetson gave me in fact diminish birth control pill effectiveness just like any other antibiotic does. And I should be taking my birth control pill and antibiotics at least 3 hours apart.
This dermatologist cost me a lost of stress and I had to go for plan B pill to make sure I did not get pregnant. In my case Dr. Bendetson was incompetent and seemed not to care about my worries, and in fact misrepresented information about medicine he gave me.
