Dr. Jetmalani, in Dermatology, is the best person for this kind of work. She knows my entire body, knows all about what kind of spots I have, and advises me accordingly. She froze three spots on my neck which were bothering me, and I have had no trouble with the results! What a blessing she is!

Dr. Jetmalanie is an excellent provider who is always very attentive and responsive providing very clear and articulate advice. Those are some of the reasons why I followed her to Portland and continued my care with her after she moved from Salem a number of years ago. She is an excellent provider. You are very fortunate to have her as one of your physicians. .

The appointment was less than 10 minutes of time for the first time ever seeing this dermatologist. After I left I realized she did not do a very thorough exam of me. And she wanted her male assistant in the room to take notes which made me very uncomfortable as I had to disrobe for the very brief exam.

This was my first visit with this provider. I was nervous and anxious so did not ask all the questions I would have liked answered. My fault really. I was dismayed overall in the two month wait to see a specialist.

07/12/2016
Dr. Jetmahlani must be overworked (i.e., overbooked with patients). She is always behind schedule. When she does see me, she is apologetic about being behind and, frankly, the visits are quite brief. They are satisfactory, but very brief. So she is not slow in her work, at least not with me, but my wait time is invariably long.

Dr. Jetmalani and her staff were extremely patient, thorough and clear when they explained the biopsy they performed during my appointment. After having seen four doctors about a skin condition that I've had for several years, Dr. Jetmalani was the first physician that clearly explained the infection and how she planned to treat it. I also very much appreciate the fact that she was cautious about what impact my [...] medications might have on proper healing of the incision site. Clearly, she had reviewed my medical records prior to my appointment. I am most appreciative of her close attention to my records, patience with my questions and willingness to address a condition which has concerned me for a long time!

Dr. Jetmalani is my dermatologist. I noticed a strange spot/shape on my arm, and was able to get in to see her in a short period of time.

I was already scheduled to see her [...], but appreciate that I was able to see her sooner. She is an amazing physician!
