One of the very best - for both medical and cosmetic dermatology. It is no wonder that he has taught many other doctors.

I have visited dr rivers religiously as he carefully over time , corrected some very nasty damage. I had deep scarring all over my face and red blotchy uneven skin tones . I carried an arsenal of cover up where ever I went. Thru a series of lasers and injections he gradually gave me my life back. It took a few years to allow healing in between lasers to see results but I've used his services every year for the past decade and will continue to do so. Beautiful place excellent Dermatologist .

gave him over a thousand dollars and zapped and burned my skin a few times and didn't change anything. Fix the problem myself for pennies by applying a home make yogurt mask

Dr. Jason Rivers's response
It is unfortunate that the person in question feels they were not treated in an effective fashion. However, it is highly unlikely we would suggest or recommend a treatment that would have no effect on a specific condition. That said, we indicate verbally and through our consent forms that some people may require more than one treatment session to achieve a desired result and even then, the outcome may be sub-optimal. We always put the patient's interest first and if there is a concern we encourage the patient to speak with us directly so that we can better understand the issue and make every effort to correct it.

Went to see Dr. Rivers for some skin treatments to improve a scar. Had some laser done and some filler to get rid of some wrinkles. He did an excellent job and I had a great experience every time I went in.

Dr. Rivers was an answer to prayer for me! Unfortunately, within the last two years, I had seen two Canadian Dermatologist and two US Dermatologist before I was recommend to this exceptionally excellent and very professional skin specialist. I have Vitilago, a skin condition that causes the loss of pigment. With time, I accepted this skin condition as it was purely cosmetic and not medically life threatening. I was coping well, when two years ago, I awoke to find that I had eight spots that were very evident on my face and neck. As a result, I began the process of trying to eliminate these very prominent spots and to no avail. Just as I had given up and felt there was no help for me I was recommended to Dr. Rivers. I did have to wait for three months, however, it was well worth the wait and the best visit of my life. Dr. Rivers treated my spots with Medi-Lite and within one week, the spots were so faint that I no longer had to use a thick facial consealer. What a blessing! What freedom! I felt like a new woman! Thank you Dr. Rivers for making a difference in my life! Dr. Rivers is very caring, personable and very competent in his field. You will be very happy to put any of your skincare concerns in his very capable hands. Truly one of the best doctors not only in Canada but in the US. In addition, all of his staff are a reflection of Dr. Rivers and how he truly cares for all of his clients. Thank you all. Always and much appreciated! Keep up the excellent work! Blessings to you all and to all those who visit Pacific Dermaesthetics!
