Dr. Safko's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Safko "Dr. Safko received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and did his internal medicine internship at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. He feels enormously grateful to have been trained by many of medicine's greatest professors, several of whom were Nobel Prize winners. After completing a research fellowship in immunodermatology, Dr. Safko finished his residency in dermatology at the University of Oregon Health Science Center in Portland, Oregon. At Southwest Dermatology Center, Dr. Safko does a significant amount of cosmetic laser and non-laser procedures emphasizing noninvasive facial and body-rejuvenating procedures. He feels that his rigorous scientific background gives him an advantage in evaluating new products and procedures so he can separate fact from marketing hype."

Dr. Safko is a very caring doctor along with a very helpful staff. Pharos laser treatments have helped psoriasis more than anything else and its safe.. Its worth the drive to get this done Both feet are doing so much better, no more skin shedding, along with hand. It's hard to believe that this would work, but now skin is almost clear. Sometimes the wait for appointment is long but the Dr. does put in extra time with you, so it's worth the wait.

This offIce is horrible. It’s very old fashioned & dirty. The nurse Rhachel is very rude & doesn’t care about the patient she’s quick to dismiss you. No one there ever returns calls when you need prescriptions or have questions. You can tell how all the staff is miserable working there that’s how bad they are. The wait time is out of control sometimes hrs & when you ask they give you attitude. I definitely do not recommend.
