I can't believe these negative reviews! I went to this clinic with a Groupon for botox about a year ago. I expected to be upsold and pressured into more procedures but it just never happened. Contrary to these other experiences, the doctor was very professional and listened to what I had to say. The office was just what you would expect - clean, professional and tastefully decorated. Absolutely nothing about my experience was negative and the botox turned out great! I've since referred my daughter to see him and several colleagues at my work. I've also been back to see him several times over the past year and do not have one negative thing to say. I'm very happy with my results and him as a doctor! And yes, I am a real person and a real patient. I can't imagine these other experiences taking place in the same office with the same doctor that I've been to. I would recommend him without reservation.
This Dr. is such a creep. He rushes you in and out and doesn't listen to a word you say. I went in for a Botox Groupon yesterday and after meeting with him and noticing that everything I was saying was going in one ear and out the other, I immediately wanted to run for the door. I actually would have but he literally attacked me with the Botox needle unexpectedly while I was still trying to explain what I wanted. I was in the middle of my sentence and BAM he stabbed me repeatedly in the forehead as quickly as he could. He went so quickly I moved all over trying to get away so I could catch my breath and finish explaining what I wanted and he followed my face with his hand injecting away like a mad man. There was no rhyme or reason to the placement of the injections and he went so fast he actually squirted it on my face as I tried to move my face away from his hand. All of the injections were over in a matter of 5-10 seconds and I was left shocked at what had just happened. I rushed out of the office and immediately became extremely worried about whether or not he was really a doctor. Did he actually inject my face with Botox or was it something else? Will the messed up placement of these injections lead to my eyes drooping or another horrific result? Was the needle clean? I am so concerned that I am going to get blood tests taken to make sure I didn't get anything from the needle. As for the results, only time will tell as it takes a while for the Botox to take effect. PLEASE DON'T GO TO THIS DR!!!!!
THE INSURANCE SCAM REVIEWS ARE TRUE!
IT JUST HAPPENED TO ME!
I went in for a facial and the Dr. suggested that if I gave him my insurance info that I may be eligible - so I did. I paid for the facial in full and was told that it would be billed, which I thought was great because I was told it would then be about only $20 or so.
I just got a bill from my insurance for almost $350 - listing Dr consult and medical grade treatment that I didn't get!
Now I am fighting with my insurance and they are saying I had this treatment and there is no way for my to prove otherwise.
I am so frustrated and upset - I can't afford $350. Certainly for something I never got.
What this Dr is doing is unethical and wrong. While I don't think anything will come of it I am going to report him to the AMA.
I cannot believe this place is still in business. The Dr is really pushy and looks like a guy out of a 70's porno. I felt pushed and rushed. They were pushing papers to sign for the procedure (fat transfer) even before I was able to get all my questions answered.
I also had a DMAE facial that COMPLETELY broke me out - and I am not acne prone. So I don't know what's in that stuff but I'm not going back. Too many quality places to go.
I Cannot Believe This Place is Still Open
I decided on a surgical procedure - the nurse consulted me and everything seemed OK.
Then I deal with the Dr and I immediately wanted my mony back - It had only been ONE DAY and they would not refund. I am now fighting the my credit card company and I will probably win but that's not the point!
If I don't feel right, why would you hold that? It's not like they spent any money on me - it was one day!
If it wasn't for the Dr I would not have changed my mind - I'm not confident in him at all.
Did Not Feel Like a Real Medical Practice - Dr. Creepy..
To say that I did not enjoy my experience here is an understatement.
I felt very "sold", like they were going to lose their lease or something if I didn't spend $5000 on a laser package. I explained that I wanted to think about it and then the dr came in and the real pressure began. Can't I just think about it? Sheesh!
DO NOT GO HERE
I cannot believe these people are in business, or for that matter anyone in their right mind would give this Dr a license.
First, he was VERY rude and demoralizing - I felt very talked down to. He kept looking at his iphone through the while time, which again, was rude.
When I went to the bathroom it was NOT clean, which was concerning at a medical facility. When I left they didn't even say hank you or goodbye. WOW.
I went in to have a consult for Velashape (found out later it is the old machine). Note: I have a scar going across my stomach from a car accident.
When I took my pants off to show the area I wanted treated the nurse gasped and said "Oh my God! What happened to you!” pointing at it like I was a freak.
I was so ashamed that I actually started to tear up, and even though she apologized, I just was so embarrased I put my clothes on and drove home.
I did not find this place very clean and was uncomfortable with the Dr. Would not recommend at all.
After our visit heard about some lawsuit (?) so best I go to someone else for any surgery. I'm glad I asked the front - she probably should have not told me but I am glad she did.
I WISH I HAD LISTENED TO MY GIRLFRIEND AND NEVER WENT HERE
You know when you should listen to your gut? Well I didn't and now I have stem cell transfer and it has been a TOTAL DISASTER - I cannot believe this Dr is even working.
I have had to get TWO corrections ( by another Dr BTW) and I am writing to warn people.
