Dr. Rivers is the best dermatologist I have seen in my lifetime. I have been to many highly respected dermatologists during the last 30 years. I have had the most success with Dr. Rivers. Dr. Rivers and the Pacific Dermaesthetics team has executed a treatment plan on my facial scarring that has eliminated the scarring and refreshed my skin. The treatment plan and the daily skin care plan over the last five years have been extremely successful. Very thankful to Dr. Rivers and his Team. Highly recommend!

Dr. Rivers makes responsibility for patient care the first priority. He is brilliant and compassionate as well as ethical. This means a thorough clinical assessment, giving the patient time to make a well informed decision, and delivering exceptional treatment with follow up. In my case he has helped me recover from experiences at another clinic and has done so with skill and professionalism.

I have recently seen Dr Rivers and am soooo impressed! Amazing injection technique. I was very anxious to get my lips done as I've been through it before with other dermatologists. Completely different experience! Pain free and such a nice natural look. Only got one small bruise compared to massive bruising I got elsewhere. It took months to get in to see him but well worth the wait! I won't go see anyone else after the results achieved. On that note, no wait in office once appointment was booked. All three times, no waiting for an hour as you anxciously await your treatment. Highly recommend this lovely Doctor and his wonderful staff!

I am a 49yr old woman in the design field. I needed to keep up my professional edge as well as keep up with my growing daughters and handsome travelling husband. Pacific Dermaesthetics and their team did an amazing job in shedding my face of years of work & life stress. My look is refreshed, not fake. I get comments on how bright my eyes look, my skin, etc.. My personalized and strategic treatments included thermage, fraxel, IPL and injections. I have always been a cheerful person and this treatment has boosted my appearance, energy an d confidence to match my personality. Thank you Dr. Rivers and the Pacific Dermaesthetics team!

Dr Rivers, helped my son with acne in his late teen years. Just in time for high school graduation. His skin was amazing. He also helped me with a few suspicious skin issues. I feel very comfortable knowing he has our health in his best interests.

Dr Rivers is a good doctor. My only complaint is that he spreads himself too thin by using subordinates wherever possible.

I have a rare skin condition called Hailey Hailey. Most doctors have only read about this disease, but Dr. Rivers knew about it right away and set me on a course of "experimental" treatments and kept records of what worked and didn't work along the way. I was relieved to finally find a dermatologist who wanted to actually help me and not just send me out the door with another prescription that doesn't work. He is very conscientious of my condition and him along with all his staff are fabulous people to deal with. I am looking forward to the future with Dr. Rivers and his clinic.

Mole removal left bad scarring. The scarring was much more than he advised. He then recommended to come back for scar treatments, which of course cost more money. Didn't bother, will take my business somewhere new. Would not recommend.

Dr. Jason Rivers's response
Any surgical procedure may result in scarring that is unanticipated. Scarring may occur in the post- operative period because of poor wound care or genetic predisposition. Should a problem arise, then we will attempt to rectify the situation, often at no charge to the patient.
