Recommend a dermatologist in Zurich area?

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying a sunny nice day and of course reading EF so I can get some replies too


I got this "pigmented benign nevi (mole)" in my neck that has been growing over the years and wanted to take it out. I went to a Dermatologist recently and they diagnosed it and wanted to remove it immediately . I went there for the diagnosis and didn't expect it to be such an easy removal procedure. I kindly refused to do it even though the dermatologist said it was a 60s easy safe painless procedure. I replied I would think about it and come back to them.



What actually hold me back from doing it is aesthetics. The mole is in my neck and I of course don't want an ugly scar there so wanted to double check on this dermatologist or find one that would ensure the minimum scar. I visited the dermatologist Dr. Rümmelein AG in Kilchberg.


They have a dozen of very good Google reviews except one from "Zueri Aesse" and I quote "ACHTUNG! WARNUNG vor dieser Praxis! Leider gar nicht empfehlenswer!!. Das Praxisangebot ist zwar sehr umfangreich aber die Behandlungen sehr teuer und werden nicht gut durchgeführt. Eine Bekannte hatte nach einer Botoxbehandlung ein hängendes Lid, nach ihrer Beschwerde wurde der Fehler abgestritten mit kurioser Begründung. Eine andere Freundin hatte schlechte Erfahrungen mit einer Laserbehandlung (es blieben dunkle Flecken zurück die sie davor nicht hatte-offenbar hat man ihr zur falschen Behandlung geraten). Ich selber hatte nach einer unnötigen Muttermalentfernung (wozu ich überredet wurde) eine hässliche viel zu grosse Narbe, obwohl das Mutermal 3mm gross war. Bei der Fadenentfernung hat man noch ein Reststück vergessen, weshalb die Narbe danach noch schlimmer aussah. Dennoch hatte man die Frechheit bessesen, narbenverschönernde Laserbehandlungen in Rechnung zu stellen. Fazit: Die Proffesionalität nach aussen hin täuscht- die Behandlungen werden nicht befriedigend und teilweise mit schlimmen Resultaten durchgeführt. Alles ist überteuert und man wird schnell mit schlechten oder nicht passenden Behandlungen abgefertigt. Fehler werden dann auch noch abgestritten-geht gar nicht!"



So exactly my same problem a mole removal procedure that apparently they did not do correctly and then proposed another extra solution charging more money.



Can anyone recommend a good Dermatologist for this? or would you trust this practice even after this feedback? has anyone had experiences with this practice, feedback?

Go here. I have had numerous things from skin removed here. Simply go there without appointment. But get there early. Around 0830 Uhr.

Its not in Triemli. Its near to Helvetiaplatz. As I said get their 30 minutes before. Around 0830 in the morning or 1430 in the afternoon. They will give you a number. It can get very busy there so as I said be there early.

Re: Recommend a dermatologist in Zurich area?

Hi
I can recommend Dr. Thürlimann at Forchstrasse 55. My experience with both doctors in the practice is very positive.

The problem with Private is that one has to wait a couple of months for an appointment

Yes it takes longer time. But I have been able to get an appointment in 1-2 weeks, if flexible with the hours.

I finally went to this one (Triemmli ambulatory clinic) to have the mole removed and I'm very disappointed with their treatment. The Dr. at this ambulatory removed the mole and didn't stitch the wound together so now I have a big open wound. I hate myself for not asking a MD friend before whether it had to be stitched or not. The wound looks with some mark and missing skin in other areas so very sloppy work I would say.

I don't recommend going to Triemmli. See attached and judge for yourself.

I have been going there for many years having many things removed from the skin. Never had a problem. Only once the nurse ( dont know whether she was qualified ) failed to take out all the stitches and I had to remove them myself. So why dont you simply go back and tell them instead of complaining here

Not always, I got one pretty soon exactly there.

For future readers, +1 for Thurlimann Praxis in Forchstrasse.

Re: Recommend a dermatologist in Zurich area?

I generally scar quite badly, however after using https://www.boots.com/dermatix-silic...-tube-10088181 on my back my 30cm+ scar is very minimal. I would recommend its use

Look up his credentials! He is an expert and from my personal experience with him, a true genius in his technique, acumen and profession



Seriously, do some diligent online research:

Re: Recommend a dermatologist in Zurich area?

@ OP - Have you considered bypassing the dermatologist & going straight to a plastic surgeon? Without going into too many details I had surgery over the summer following a referral from the dermatologist. Thanks to the skill and after care from my surgeon my 'Harry Potter' style post surgery scar will be virtually invisible to the naked eye 12 months after the surgery. If you'd like to know more feel free to PM me.
