Seeking Kaiser dermatologist
I was wondering if anyone knows any good Kaiser dermatologists that specialize in hair loss? Thank
you so much for your help!
I can't vouch for whether he's good at hair loss problems, but Dr. Mark Reisman at Oakland
Kaiser is among my top favorite physicians of all time, ever. He's a wonderful listener, clearly
competent, excellent at explaining options, and a genuinely warm human being. I saw him in the
elevator at Kaiser five years after he treated me for basal cell carcinoma, and he still
remembered me. Wishing they were all like that...
Seeking Kaiser dermatologist
I am looking for a great and helpful dermatologist working for Kaiser here in the
SF Bay Area? Havn't had positive experiences with the dermatologists at the
Kaiser in Richmond. Any suggestions ? I appreciate the help!
I have been seeing Dr. Maya Ponte at the Kaiser Oakland center and I think she is
great. Highly recommend.
Barry Waldman works in Walnut Creek and is wonderful. In Oakland, Linda Beets-
Shay is fabulous, though she may be just for pediatric dermatology, I don't know.
Hi -- I recommended Dr. Barry Waldman as a dermatologist and I thought he worked in
Walnut Creek but then I found his business card and it says Martinez. Dr. Linda
Beets-Shay is still great and we saw her in Oakland so I'm pretty sure about her
Re: Pediatric dermatologist for 2-year-old
Hi - try Dr. Beet-Shay at Oakland Kaiser. She specializes in children and
has a no-nonesense approach.
Dr Beets-Shay is a female dermatologist at Kaiser Oakland who has special
interest in pediatric dermatology, also Dr Becker is a great doc with a
very gentle manner who I would also recommend.
Dr Linda Beets-Shay is a board certified Pediatric Dermatologist at
Re: Dermatologist for rosacea and eczema (Sept 2006)
I have rosacea and am very happy with my treatment at Kaiser and I just
found out that
non-Kaiser members can see Kaiser doctors. I was quite surprised and
their rates are
reasonable. I saw Dr. Wilkins this week and he gave me unbiased
referrals, should I pursue them, for treatment for rosacea, spider and
and other types of laser treatments. He is affiliated with UCSF and also
gave me the
name of a UC affiliated dermalogist who he thinks is the best in the Bay
dermatologists want you to use their equipment which is not necessarily
treatment for you. I am more comfortable getting an opinion from a
doctor who is not
involved in the treatment
Hi, I have Kaiser and am looking for a good,proactive
dermatologist to check and probably treat my 50-something fair,
sun-damaged skin, due to recent fast escalating problems. I'm
willing to go to any Kaiser in the Bay Area if someone has good
experiences to report. Also looking for info on docs to avoid.
My family has gone to Dr. Ostreicher and Dr. Beets-Shay at Oakland
Kaiser and been very satisfied with both of them.
I have had good experiences with Dr. Cornelius at Kaiser
Richmond. She is not touchy feely but seems to know her stuff.
I can recommend Dr. Reisman at Kaiser Oakland. He is kind, understanding, and
gets to business. I think you will like him
I work in pediatrics at Kaiser and think that Dr. Beets-Shay is
a great dermatologist!
I am currently looking for a KAISER Dermatologist in Oakland, but
will consider other areas as well. (I am new to Kaiser and not
yet sure if I can see Kaiser doctors outside of my area or not).
I am 26 and have had crapy skin since I was 8. It consisted of
acne (sometimes cystic) hyperpigmation, enlarged pores, etc.
Now, my biggest problem is blackheads and hyperpigmation -
usually treated via facials with extractions, peels, etc. I also
have stretch marks on my hips since I was 12 that turned into
dark, raised thick scars. Even now, they can still be painful and
itchy impossible. Does anyone know of a good dermatologist that
specializes in these issues?
I don't have a great dermatologist reccomendation at Kaier -
Kaiser dematologists don't do what they call cosmetic
procedures and it is extremly hard to get an appointment with
them - however you can go out of network if your problem is
serious enough. There is a dermatologist named Greta something
in Berkeley who might be pretty good - I think you can find her
info in the archives on the Berkeley Parents Network - if you
do go to her or any dermatologist ask about the Obagi system -
which is awesome for hyperpigmentation problems. I do not
reccomend Katie Rodan at all - she is generally not available
and not good with hyperpigmentation - I get the sense that she
is just a product pusher and her office staff could use some
improvement in the courtesey and discretion department which is
the absolute deal breaker for me to say the very least. There
is a good dermatologist at the San Francisco Laser Center that
a friend of mine went to and loved her the link to their
website is: www.sfcosmeticsurgery.com
The other thing you might want to try is calling a prominent
esthetician named Katheryn Leverette she owns Solutions Skin
I have been going to her for over seven years and she is
great. The number is 510-893-7546
I've worked with Dr. Reisman several times and have not only
found him to be very good (good listener, straight shooter), but
also savvy and willing to help you get through Kaiser bureaucracy
(e.g., he prescribed a non-formulary drug but added a notation
that allowed it to be covered as a formulary drug). He's in Oakland.
