I visited Dr. Rivers today and the experience was incredible. The Dr. knew what he was talking about and was ever so professional. He took a great deal of time with my procedure and took time explaining everything to a newly trained dermatologist. I highly recommend Dr. Rivers and staff.

Dr. Rivers has been my dermatologist for many years and I am very grateful that he is my doctor! Dr. Rivers is very skilled, knowledgeable, and caring. He utilizes very up to date procedures and takes the time to explain things thoroughly and go over any concerns. When I see Dr. Rivers, I know that I will not only receive excellent care, but that I will be treated in a respectful and professional manner. I have used Dr. Rivers’ skincare line, Riversol, for many years and am delighted with the effect that it has had on my skin. I have utilized a variety of products within the Riversol line, and have found them all to be effective and soothing on my very sensitive skin. Those who work for Dr. Rivers are pleasant and courteous and the atmosphere at Pacific Derm is very professional. The clinic is spotless and aesthetically pleasing. I have recommended Dr. Rivers and Pacific Derm to numerous people over the years and I will continue to do so.

Dr. Rivers is the best. My doctor for several years. He looks you right in the eye, hears everything you want to tell him, and gives expert and practical advice: what works and what isn't worth the cost.

Doesn’t like MSP patients and will handoff to an associate new-grad Derm upon arrival; prefers private dollar medical aesthetics. I wish he’d revisit his humble roots and remember his reason.

Dr. Jason Rivers's response
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to address your concern. Please understand that for the last 29 years, I have provided and continue to provide MSP (medically covered) services to my patients. I do not rush through my patient visits and will address multiple issues at an appointment. This means that in order to provide the best service I can to my patients, I may run behind schedule. Second, as I have a wait list approaching a year (like many BC dermatologists), I will recommend that a new patient can have the option to see one of my Dermatology colleagues at our practice, Pacific Derm, so as to provide medical service more expeditiously. All this to say, I have always remained true to my principals and will continue to do so. Please know that I am available to discuss patient concerns at any time.

He took the time to explain my skin condition and the possible treatments that are available. He also allieviated my anxiety and insecurities about my skin condition. I’m really glad my GP referred me to him as I’ve seen other an dermatologist who seemed really miserable and was a bit testy with her tone.
