Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Vanderbeek "This is a tremendously exciting time in the field of dermatology. Scientific advances are leading to new ways to treat skin disorders as well as shedding light on how existing treatments help our patients. The most fulfilling part of my day is when I am able to help a person break out of the isolation that skin disorders can cause. I look forward to coming to clinic every day because of the relationships I have with our patients and our staff."

I have had many BCCs and SCCs. I have been to many, many dermatologists. Dr. Vanderbeek is the best - By far! She is personable and efficient. I have sent friends and relatives to her. They have the same positive experiences I have had. She once mentioned that she did her residency at the Portland VA Hospital where I normally go for health care. I told them that I had seen her when the VA was unable to see me, and they all said she was wonderful. I wish I could see her all the time.

I brought my daughter in for treatment of her acne. I was told that use of birth control was the appropriate remediation. I expressed concerns regarding having my 14-y birth control, because of the hormones involved how this would affect her development. It was apparent by the response I got that my concerns were not heard or were disregarded. The doctor repetitively talked about how an unwanted pregnancy was more the health risk. This response was not helpful we have sought care elsewhere
