I have been a patient of Kyle McAvoy NP for 3 years and as of my latest visit I am making it my last. The quality of care has changed dramtically. I was encouraged to buy skin care products while having to ask for a blood draw to check hormone and thyroid levels. Not once was I asked about my current state of well being and had to call the clinic repeatedly to inquire about my perscription refills.I know the state of health care requires us as patients to advocate for ourselves but seriously, I believe that for the cost involved the care we do recieve should be more involved and without conflict of interest ie: pushing product.
Pearl Women’s Center is AMAZING! Not only did I walk out an hour and a half later but I couldn’t even tell I just had a cyst removed the size of a grapefruit! Doctor Rosenfield and his staff were wonderful. I honestly felt great when I left. It was very important to me that I had a surgeon I trusted and that I felt extremely confident in; Dr. Rosenfield was this and more. He listened to my concerns and made me feel like family. If I ever have to have another cyst removed or any type of surgery for that matter I would go back in a heartbeat! I encourage everybody to go see Dr. Rosenfield! You won’t regret it and will walk our happier then you left, I guarantee it! The anesthesiologist was great as well. Apparently I felt so good that I asked everybody when I woke up if they wanted to go Hawaii! Haha, who doesn’t want to wake up thinking about sunny beaches and palm trees?
.Dr. B @ PWC Changed My Life.. I was born with a congenital breast deformity called Polands syndrome...put simply, when I hit puberty, one of my breasts somewhat developed while the other one did not. This condition negatively affected every aspect of my life and I had no hope of it ever being corrected. Young, embarrassed, scared and alone, I told no one and suffered in silence for the ten most crucial years of my adolescence. Finally, at 23 I realized that if I didn't tell someone about it..nothing would change and I would live like that for the rest of my life. So I made the decision to investigate plastic surgeons in my area. After viewing several centers websites and seeing nothing but large breasted, hot pink lingerie clad "patients of the month"...I finally found the Pearl Women’s Center page and it was refreshing to see a center that actually seemed to sincerely care about improving/enhancing patients appearances and lives more so than achieving an unrealistic level of "perfection" (which I've come to find out is completely accurate) Contacting PWC was the best decision I could have ever possibly made..I went to the consultation..frightened and embarrassed, but Dr. Bensimon was so sincere and reassuring; he was honest and realistic with me and explained all the possibilities. I knew right away that this was the person I wanted at my side through this experience. Throughout my entire breast augmentation with him he made sure we were on the same page and encouraged me to bring in photos and encouraged my opinion and just made sure to involve me completely in the entire process. Any surgeon could have just put implants in and called the outcome good...but Dr. Bensimon really took the challenge of my condition head on...it was a very difficult case (because of the awkward shape and different sizes of my breasts) but he really worked hard to make sure that what he was doing was going to achieve the most natural and symmetrical look possible and the result was way more than anything I could have ever hoped or dreamed for..because of my breasts being so awkwardly shaped & different sized, I knew that they may never (even after augmentation) look completely symmetrical..but what he did for me is just amazing..I now have the breasts that I had once dreamed of having. I cannot believe what he has done for me. The outcome is way beyond my wildest dreams and expectations. It was a long process and a couple surgeries (because of the complexity of my condition) but I now look the way I once dreamed of and his experience, knowledge and creative thought made it all possible. Said with no exhaggeration at all, Dr. Bensimon changed my life and my happiness and newfound confidence is owed to him. This is a man that puts his heart into his work and truly cares about his patients. This is exemplified in his exceptional work and the way he treats his patients. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone seeking any procedure/operation large or small.
Amazing!. I am a new patient at Pearl Women's Center and my experience there was amazing! I am younger and when I went in I thought I was going in for a cyst but they found something else that was causing sever pain. Dr. Rosenfield scheduled my surgery immediately to remove the painful abscess. When I showed up for my surgery they staff was very friendly and explained everything in (english - not the medical terms your don't actually understand) =]]. I went home from my surgery and the next day when I woke up I was pleased to see flowers from all the staff at Pearl Women's Center. It was soo nice to see that they took the time to do such a small gesture. All the nurses and assistants here are so caring and genuinely nice! I actually found them here on citysearch and I read some of the reviews both good and bad; and I have to say the bad reviews must be from some uptight people because they are total opposite from those reviews. I will never go anywhere else.
Knowledgeable and Professional. I have been a client of Nurse Andrea Stapleton for the last two years. I am a professional middle-aged woman and felt very self-conscious about seeking botox injections. I had no idea what to expect or what I should even ask for. Fortunately, Nurse Stapleton sensed my anxiety and immediately put me at ease by explaining the procedure and carefully examining my face. She also uses an anesthetic cream that numbs the treatment area so as she injected me in several places I felt absolutely no pain. Not all botox providers follow this procedure, consequently the injections can be painful. The day after my first treatment she called to check on how I was feeling and she called once again a week later to inquire about my satisfaction with the results. Andrea Stapleton is very experienced and she is certified to administer botox. I highly recommend that anyone who is considering botox make an appointment for an initial consultation. I know that you will be as pleased as I am with the results.
Worst experience EVER. I have never had such a terrible experience. Andrea, the nurse who performed my botox was rude, uncaring and simply put had no idea what she was doing. Do yourself a favor, STAY away from this clinic.
We are so sorry you were unhappy with your visit. A great patient experience is very important to Pearl Women's Center and to Andrea who is widely known for her beautiful results and her caring nature. We encourage you to call the center so that we may address your concerns.
Finally Pain Free!.
Dr. Rosenfield was wonderful! He spent over an hour with me talking about all the different options I had, at my first consultation. He was able to do an ultrasound right there in the room. His staff was professional and very helpful. I never felt rushed. I consulted with 3 other doctors before choosing Dr. Rosenfield and I'm very glad I did.
Dr. Rosenfield has the most current, up to date technology in his office with a surgical center right above. Even thou my fibroids were large and there
were 10+ of them, Dr. Rosenfield was able to the surgery laproscopically. I was told by 2 of the other Dr's that there are only a handful of Doctors in Portland that could've done my surgery LSH, with Dr. Rosenfield being one of those. His staff took excellent care of me and my partner before and after surgery, and I was home just 2 hours after. I was concerned about doing the surgery outside of a hospital setting, and am now so very glad that I did. There was one person assigned to me from the moment I left the operating room and she stayed with me until we left to go home. She also called more than once to follow up and make sure I was doing well.
Here I am 7 weeks after the surgery, fully healed, feeling like I got my life back!
I definately feel like I made the right decision and would highly reccommend Dr. Rosenfeild and Pearl Womens Center!
Don't believe the hype - Part 2.
I agree with the comments on my fellow commenter below regarding her experience. I really enjoyed the staff, mostly female as far as I could tell. My interview with the doctor was thorough and I appreciated that. However, I had misgivings regarding some parts of the treatment and I was definitely told it was his way or no way. I have seen a lot of doctors for endometriosis over the years and have never felt so left out of the treatment plan. I explained what I was requesting and received a blunt and uncaring response, through the nurse, from the doctor.
I would not return to this doctor.
Dr. Bensimon is an outstanding surgeon. Dr. Bensimon is an accomplished and skilled surgeon who has had a remarkable impact on both myself and my daughter. After having two ther consutations with surgeons, my daughter and I consulted with Dr. Bensimon who spent over 90 minutes with us. He demonstated a level of confidence, knowledge and experience that far exceeded the other consults. We left knowing we had found the best possible surgeon. Dr. Bensimon performed a rhinoplasty combined with deviated septum repair and chin implant on my daughter and she is thrilled with the results. Shortly thereafter, I had chin liposuction, abdominoplasty and internal breast lift with augmentation. The surgery and recovery were both far easier than I anticipated and my results exceeded my expectations. I attribute the ease of both as well as our positive outcomes to Dr. Bensimon's aesthetic eye and extraordinary surgical skills. He is without doubt a talented and gifted surgeon. The Pearl Women's Center itself is beautiful and very calming. Dr. Bensimon's nurse Andrea is wonderful and as knowledgeable as a doctor herself. His caring assistant Cheryl is prompt is answering any question with detailed and accurate information. We feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Bensimon and would highly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
Great place to help vulvar pain. Pearl Women's Center has friendly staff who really want to help. I had been struggling with vulvar pain during intercourse for years since an auto accident in 2001. None of the other treatments I tried worked, but Kyle McAvoy, NP provided innovative treatments that have made all the difference. I am now pain free and grateful to the Pearl Women's Center.
