very good treatments and staff – They do offer several lasers and options that are very effective that many other practices don't have. They have been very patient and helpful with me!!
Miracle workers – I have suffered almost all of my life with hyperhidrosis. This condition causes excess sweating of the hands, feet, underarms and sometimes other areas of the body. My particular condition caused horribly sweaty hands and feet. Unless you have lived with this, you can't imagine the social stigma, the difficulty doing normal tasks like writing, pulling on socks, and other mundane things, and the stress of knowing you'd have to shake hands with someone. Even typing on a keyboard was a problem.
I found Aesthetic Solutions through an internet search on "hyperhidrosis" and called and made an appointment. The front desk staff is very friendly. The nurse that came for me was very welcoming and warm. She made me feel like I was in the right place immediately. I was seen by Dr. Soderburg. I can't begin to tell how comfortable he made me feel. He discussed the treatment protocol which was to have my hands injected with Botox. This sounded like such a simple solution to a life long problem. He treated my left hand that day (since I am right handed) just to make sure I wouldn't have any unusual difficulties with the treatment. The injections are done with a tiny needle, and numbing cream is used before the procedure. During the procedure, they used ice packs and a cooling fan on my hand to lessen the discomfort. For me, I would rate the pain level as a 3 on a 10 pt. scale. Afterward, I had a bit of numbness in one area of my hand, but not so much as to disrupt my normal routine. The results were astounding. Within two weeks I returned to have my right hand done. Dr. Soderburg tweaked the therapy a bit, and I had no loss of sensation in that hand afterward. I would describe this treatment as truly life changing. My hands simply do not sweat at all. None. As a bonus, my feet sweat less too. The first treatment lasted about five months, but my condition never returned to the pretreatment days of wringing wet hands. For the second round, I had my right hand done first, and I had to think twice about going back to have my left hand done because the sweating was fairly well under control.
Dr. Soderburg says that he only offers this treatment because of the great results his patients get. I know this could not be a highly profitable part of his business, but I for one am so blessed that I found Aesthetic Solutions. These treatments have reduced my stress level and my aggravation level to zero regarding my condition. And even better, the procedure is covered by my insurance company. Hats off and a thousand thanks to Dr. Soderburg and the staff at AS!
Knowledgeable, Friendly, and low costs – This is a great place, very knowledgeable in the field of Dermatology and they have the latest and greatest equipment. Stop by and ask for Exilus treatments to reduce fat and tighten skin and pain free and inexpensive. Aesthetic Solutions is one of only a few to have the Exilus in the country. Did I mention no cutting? You can't beat that!
highly recommend – One person on this site seems to give the thumbs down to AS for not helping with her insurance situation. I am sure that was a frustrating situation and I am sure there are many sides. I am writing to give my review on this clinic from a pateints perspective. Having gone through a Rhino/Ceptoplasty I had a great experience. The staff was very friendly, Shannon the patient coordiantor was such a help. She took care of all the details and made sure I was prepared for pre/post op. Dr.Finn did an amazing job on my nose and being able to breath has given me a quality of life much greater than I had before. They worked with me and my insurance company with out any issues at all. Thank you Aesthetic Solutions!!
Does not welcome insured breast cancer patients – AS accepts MedCost patients. In 08-08, AS was given the opportunity to sign a rider to its contract with MedCost whereby it would accept patients (un-insurable based on a medical condition and very often breast cancer patients) that were paying to be a part of NC's newly established high risk pool for the un-insurable (Inclusive Health). MedCost is the administrator of the Inclusive Health policy.
AS thought it out back in 08-08 and made the business decision to exclude the Inclusive Health MedCost insureds.
AS would get paid by MedCost. AS just did not want the cancer patients!
Doctors are only as good as their support staff.
If you have cancer or know someone with cancer then I encourage you to make a statement ---- find another dermatologist. Find someone who cares about cancer patients and who hires insurance and billing people with that same mind-set.
