My visit was for the surgical removal of a Melanoma In Situ detected at my 6-month check-up. Find this in a sea of other skin blemishes is testimony to Dr. Adler's skill as was the surgical skill involved in taking only enough flesh necessary to remove the cancer. I am a very happy patient of his since I moved to Portland 9 years ago.

Many years ago, I came in with dermatitis, and Dr. Adler decided he should look at my moles. He found 2 stage-0 melanomas, and within a couple weeks, he took care of them, and I was safe. He saved me the experience of skin cancer, and possibly my life! Besides all this, he's efficient while treating me (and I assume others) as humans, and appointments never feel rushed. I trust him implicitly and continue to return for skin checks.

Follow up visit to check my wife's precancerous treatment with a topical cream. Dr. Adler is very thorough and provided instructions as to what to expect in the next two weeks. He assured my wife that the effects of the treatment will be all gone by Christmas.

My son saw him in June 2017 and he prescribed accutane even thought he told my son it will not help a lot because my son already has a lot of scar and doesn't have a lot of acne. He never mention about accutane can cause depression. My son told him he felt kind of depress in October and the doctor never take it in serious. In November, my son developed depression and had to drop 7 classes to 4 classes in senior year. My son still struggle with depression. Bad doctor, he ruined my family.

He is not only the best dermatologist I have ever had, he's one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He's got a terrific bedside manner, is very smart, and always takes care of whatever you're seeing him about. He also is well connected in the medical community and has given me some extraordinary references to equally wonderful doctors who provide different medical disciplines.

The BEST dermatologist I've ever had and the staff held equal to this. Dr. Adler had such a calm demeanor and quickly diagnosed my skin concern without hesitation. He took the time to listen and talk with me about other skin questions I've always had, but other dermatologist seemed too rushed and unconcerned to listen to me. He was able to take care of my skin issue immediately (within 5 minutes) and had me on my way feeling much more at ease and confident. Dr. Adler made my week!

Our experience with Dr. Adler and The Portland Dermatology Clinic were excellent. Easy to set up an appointment. Clear directions to location and complimentary parking garage. Virtually no wait time. Annie, Dr. Adler's assistant (I think that was her name) was amazing, very friendly and efficient. Dr. Adler had an amazing balance of knowledge and bedside manner. He took time to answer every one of our little questions. We felt like we were in very good hands. Would definitely recommend Dr. Adler
