Ratings for Dr. Marlene Dytoc
Referred by GP....seen by a student first. Dytoc entered room to tell her what to write for prescription indicating to use a note pad with a pre-printed prescription for a scalp treatment. Later the pharmacist commented on the odd prescription which was crammed onto the page and difficult to read. The assistant diagnosed a scalp issue based on the red mark on my neck from a CPAP mask!!! Lol. I told pharmacist to not fill that one! Dytoc was in room for minutes only. Felt rushed and like my problem wasn't of great importance to her. The prescription she gave me is not covered by BlueCross and is very expensive, has not helped the problem. Request was faxed by the pharmacist for hemp with the cost to BC but it was denied. Detox mentioned it's expensive and may not be covered. Surely something else will work and be covered because as a snood I don't have that kind of money. Not impressed over all.
I went to see her to get a second opinion on my skin condition. Although her attitudes look kind and smooth, she didn't look like have time to listen my concerns. She wrote down medicines I need to get medical care, but, I had hard time reading her writing in a note. They need to organize better at giving patient well-documented prescription that people can actually read and take a reference in the future. I had to almost call out to her after every sentence she finished to ask some questions because she was so busy to get out of the room. I waited around 40 minutes to see her and she didn't seem to care to talk to me for five minutes. I'll definitely not go back.
I am shocked to read all the negative comments. I just came from my first appt with Dr. Dytoc and she was very, very kind, patient,professional and listened to ALL of my concerns, even the ones that weren't on the docket. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the front staff. I would recommend her based on my experience . She was excellent .
After reading some reviews here I was rather apprehensive about my appointment with Dr. Dytoc. I was pleasantly surprised with the prompt and friendly service I received, She was thorough and I didn't feel she rushed through the examination. Made the experience much more pleasant compared to the other dermatologists I've seen.
Not the best. Not the worst. I have had acne for over 6 years and nothing I ever did made a difference so I booked with a dermatologist in Edmonton which is 800km away from my small town. He wound up cancelling due to a family emergency the week before I was scheduled to drive down so my doctor referred me to Dr Dytoc. Although i didn't feel incredibly welcomed by her or her staff and she was incredibly fast and blunt with her recommendations, I have to admit, she did exactly what I hoped for and helped me get rid of my acne. I continue to see her once every 3 months despite the seemingly bad service because she knows exactly what my body needs in order to correct my skin issues. im sure there are much friendlier doctors with nicer offices out there but I got the results I wanted and that's the most important thing for me.
I have had skin issues for over 20 years and Dr.Dytoc was the first (of several) doctors to help me with my skin issues. My feet were the worst problem, they are now perfect after 3months. I also had hair loss issues which she immediately called in Dr. Wong and I am working on those still. The receptionist failed to tell me that both doctors aren't always in, so my first follow up I couldn't see Dr. Wong :( Not fond of receptionist.
I stopped going to her as I felt she could care less about my serious skin problems. She doesn't have the time to properly advise when to use what medications and when to stop. She does not explain how future treatments will proceed, when I ask her, she replied if I have any questions to ask her assistant, she too was rude and had better things to do. They have all kinds of time to answer your questions and are very friendly if you're considering cosmetic procedures and scheduling those appointments, but totally different attitude when it comes to serious skin problems that affect my ability to do everyday tasks. I cannot recommend her to anyone as I wouldn't want them treated like I was.
