like the way Dr Jetmalani makes sure I understand and types out explicit directions so I know exactly what to do and when!!

The medical assistant who worked with me at this visit was not very friendly. Maybe she was having a rough day -- they were backed up on appointments -- but I thought she was kind of brusque. Dr. Jetmalani was great as usual.

This care provider was referred to me by my PCP team as a second opinion for removal of a precancerous lesion on my nose. The former care provider, Dr. [...], advised me to wait a year. Given my family history, this dermatologist was proactive and agreed it needed to be taken care of ASAP. Many thanks to Portland Dermatology Clinic at Bridgeport for your prompt care and expertise!

all went smoothly and efficiently.

06/22/2017
Well, I went for something that did not seem to be much of a problem. Dr. Jetmalani had to tell me that what she was looking at appeared to be a cancer, that it required biopsy and she outlined the plan if it was cancer. I thought she did an admirable job. I didn't want to hear it yet I understood very clearly that she had a rational short and long-term plan. Plus, she was very kind and her medical assistant seemed to mirror these good qualities.

Dr Jetmalani is fantastic. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a dermatologist.

when I scheduled my appointment about 3weeks ago, there was a cancellation available that I took. when I checked no one noticed it was NOT for my regulator provider, Dr Jetmolani. it wasn't until I was in exam room that after preliminary check in, vitals, Medscape, etc that CNA [...] returned to exam room an commented that I was seeing Dr Jetmolani and had there been a mistake. yes there was and [...] is the only person who caught it.

I had a benign tumor excised in Oct and couldn't get into see the dr about it not healing well until December. Once I got into the dr it was a very quick fix with her recommendations. I feel like there should have been some appointments reserved on the schedule for situations like mine. I know Dr. Jetmalani is very busy, but I could not even get squeezed in to see any dr when I tried. Fortunately there was a cancellation and I called just after that happened and got in to see her [...] My problem is almost totally cleared up now, a week after seeing her. :( I am guessing this is not the doctor's problem, but more a problem with the office scheduling. She is a very compassionate and responsible person.

12/06/2016
Friendly, listened and responded to my concerns.

12/06/2016
i requested that they remove skin lesions in one visit and they obliged. normally they assess you then you have to go in for a second visit. you have to pay for two visits.
100

11/30/2016
I really appreciate Dr. Jetmalani's kind nature and understanding when it comes to my personal medical history. My dad died after struggling with melanoma, and Dr. Jetmalani knew and was sensitive to that as she thoroughly checked my skin health.

11/28/2016
I had a very suspicious growth and when the provider conducted an all body scan it was incredibly fast, not thorough at all, didn;t check between my toes or scalp.

I had questions about my rash that the doctor answered, however I did not take notes. I was hoping the after visit summary would outline what topical medicines recommended I try (one prescribed OR one over the counter).

10/05/2016
I absolutely love Dr Jetmalani. she is so caring, patient, respectful and calm -- not to mention very intelligent.
100

10/05/2016
Everything was wonderful except it took me a few months to get in to see the doctor. Given my appointment was a referral from my primary physician to have the dermatologist examine some spots on my face, had there been a concern I felt that was a long time to wait for a basic skin examination.
100

09/28/2016
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!

09/12/2016
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.
