UPDATE: DERM FOUND!

SKIP TO PAGE 2 FOR INFO AND MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE TCA CROSS METHOD!


Hi!

I've been searching for awhile and the only derm/surgeon around my area that I was able to find was Dr. Bargman, in Toronto. However, I've heard horrible things about his bedside manner and that's enough for me to X him out. There's also a clinic in Vancouver that performs the treatment, but it's extremely far from where I reside.

I know we have many Canadians on the board, so to them I ask: Any luck/recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

I don't even know of any good derms in Ottawa, let alone one that does TCA cross! I don't know what's wrong with this city.

lmao I can definitely relate to that.

Seems like, in Canada, Toronto and Vancouver are far more advanced, when it comes to cosmetic procedures.

@no_hope: Like I said: It's his bedside manner.

Run a search on these boards and on www.ratemds.com, for details.

As previously mentioned, the only derm/surgeon I know, in Toronto, who practices the CROSS method, is Dr. Bargman, whom I've obviously been trying to avoid, but it seems like he is the only one who performs this treatment, near my city. sad.gif

It was humor; as in, I'm slowly beginning to give up lol.

I'm from Toronto as well and am looking into getting this done - seriously, there is no one else that practices this? I did a google search and apparently Dr.Betty Chan (I go to her for another treatment) had TCA cross mentioned on her website. I won't be seeing her for another month or so since i'm not in town so I can't ask her if they practice it but one of you may want to look into it if you want to see someone soon. Keep us posted!

By website, are you referring to the Baywood Clinic? Because, I contacted them, a few months ago; I was then told by Dr. John Keller that no doctor practices the TCA CROSS there and he then referred me to *drum roll* Dr. Bargman - much to my chagrin.

I do not know of any derm/surgeon in Toronto who performs this treatment, other than Dr. Bargman. I've been searching for years. However, if you ever do bring it up the next time you visit Dr. Chan, feel free to let us know what she said. smile.gif

Yeah I saw both Dr. Keller and Dr. Chan in the last few weeks. I think in my situation all the dermas are recommending I get rid of the redness of the scars first before trying any treatment so it will be a long time until I find the right doctor. I'm thinking of even flying to the states to get it done - IF that is the right procedure for me. There are a few other doctors in Toronto that you may want to go see, i think they offer free consultations and do a variety of treatments. Go to real self (google it) and then you can find a number of plastic surgeons and other doctors in Toronot that deal with acne treatments - not sure if they do TCA though but it's worth checking them out. Do post back if you do. I plan on seeing them in August when i'm back in Toronto myself.

So who are the best derms in Toronto? I'm from Ottawa, but I don't mind traveling to TO since there is a definite lack of derms in Ottawa.

Why is it that so few doctors practice TCA cross? Is it considered dangerous. I have some really small ice pick scars that I thought might benefit from this treatment.

I don't need to travel to Toronto, for that. But, thank you for your reply.

From my personal experience, I've come to the conclusion that not many know about it.

i think that not many derms/surgeons know about tca cross, and those that do don't bother doing it because it's so.. "easy"

i actually go to a nurse to have it done
