MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

Dr. Jones refers to himself as a plastic surgeon and skin care specialist.
Therefore I saw him for skin lesions on my face.
He did not do biopsies but rather referred to a previous report from a dermatologist.
He did not understand the term warty dyskeratomy.
He prescribed efudex to dissolve the lesions.
He contradicted himself by saying healing would take at least 3-4 weeks but his after care sheet said 3-5 days.
He prescribed white petroleum cream for healing which burned.
On the second visit he said to use Aquaphor which is not white nor was mentioned on first visit.
I did not heal.
I went to see a local family doctor who said I had been misdiagosed and efudex would never have helped me.
I have a fungal infection.
Interesting that a general practicioner would know so much more than this so called skin specialist/plastic surgeon.
I have endured weeks of discomfort, suffering and insults from Dr. Jones.
His bedside manner has no compassion. He treated me like a leper.
Blamed me when I didn't heal instead of his wrong dianosis.
I found him be lacking in knowledge, compassion, skill and incomplete examanation.
His remark to me when I didn't heal was "too bad I don't have a magic wand"!
If any doctor needs a magic wand in his "practice" BEWARE!
