The Best Dermatologist, 5/24/2010

I found Dr. Safko on the net. I noticed that he was American Board Certified and he has been in Las Vegas for over 20 years. That was a year ago. I and my family have seen him for all our skin... care. He looks you in the eye, and does'nt talk down to you. I have Psoriasis and Dr. Safko started me out with light treatments(he has a full body light treatment room) and then I needed Xtract laser treatments. I never felt so clear of psoriasis. I know that my family and I are in good hands.

Don't waste your time, 2/17/2008

I never saw Dr Safko, only his PA who seemed like he would rather be elsewhere. He perscribed pills and creams. When that didn't work, more creams, that didn't work so more creams. All in all over... $250 in medications and no cure. I think this place is more interested in cosmetics than real dermatological problems.

Do Not Waste Your Time/Money

I picked Dr. Safko off of my provider list as I am new in town and no one I knew had been to a dermatologist so I was unable to get recommendations. I went in for a full body check (to check for potential problems with moles, etc). Based on friends/family getting full body checks, I assumed that the doctor would look all over my body for ominous moles. Instead, I was asked by the nurse to pick the 6 or 7 places that most concerned me. Well, what if I had a place that was bad but I could not see it? That was his job. Then he had to remove a mole but never explained what he was doing...just dove right in with injections and scapels...some idea of what was going on would have been nice. He also used some electric current contraption to smooth out a couple of moles and again, no explaination....I just started getting these little jarring shocks to the back of my neck. I should have walked out when the nurse asked me to pick the places on my body. That was a bad sign. Do not go to Dr. Safko.

My Favorite Dermatologist

I had a wonderful experience at Southwest Dermatology. Dr Safko took care of my skin cancer and I have no scars. He is the best Dermatologist Doctor in Las Vegas.
