What People Say About Dr. Dustin Portela, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Portela removed a melanoma from the front my arm just above elbow up the bicep. He left a pucker at the top of the scar, not laying the scar flat. The scar has to be revised by a more qualified surgeon. I'm so disappointed that I chose this doctor and now have to go through another surgery to repair the damage, likely at my own expense. There was no followup appts with him, the only reason I saw him again was to stop a second surgery after I saw how bad the puckering was on my arm. He never followed up with me at all to assure the incision healed. He's a nice man and I regret having to leave a poor review, but just wish I had known that he was a poor choice for such a large incision in a prominent place. I now have a very excellent surgeon caring for me.

Dr. Portela is the best doctor that I have ever had the opportunity to have take care of me. He is a very caring, compassionate physician who takes the time to listen to me as a patient, he puts himself in my shoes to understand the best treatment for me. He is on top of the most current treatments in dermatology today, and is willing to do research to make sure I am getting the best patient experience and treatment.

Dr. Portals is fantastic! He takes his time to listen to your concerns and addresses them accordingly. He explains procedures well and presents you with very good explanations of the treatments he provides. It is obvious he loves what he does and was kind and caring. Hands down one of the best doctors I have seen, I highly recommend him.
