IT'S BEEN 2 WEEKS AND I STILL HAVE DARK BURN MARKS ON MY FACE. READ BEFORE GOING TO THIS DOCTOR. I was going to undergo a Clear & Brilliant treatment with Dr. Davis. I found her staff, and her in particular, to be unhelpful to the point of negligence. I chose her for this treatment because her prices were considerably lower than my regular dermatologist. I now know why. Because I have sensitive skin, I brought my own numbing cream for use. As with any dermatologist/cosmetic procedure, I signed the usual waivers. For purposes of numbing my skin before the laser, I noticed that they placed a large amount of the numbing cream and Saran wrap over it, which I had never seen before (I have used the cream in the past and used the same cream with no issue). When they removed the Saran wrap, I had broken out in hives and was developing a chemical burn all over my face. The doctor actually suggested I continue with the laser and when I asked if I could have some time to see if the reaction disappeared before doing so, she left the room immediately with her assistant - leaving me alone in the room with an obvious and painful reaction on my face. I had to come out into the hall and ask for ice and when I asked if she could tell me anything about the red and painful patches that were developing on my skin, she said I would have to pay for a consultation (over $200) before she could provide her opinion - but that I could buy Benadryl. It left such a bad taste in my mouth that I went home and when the burning continued and redness deepened, I called her emergency answering service and summarized the issue/requested a call back. Twice. I didn't hear back from anyone until the next day. In the interim, I called my general dermatologist and someone from his office called me back and gave me some tips on subsiding the burn/pain and also scheduled an appointment for me first thing the next morning. Coincidentally, it wasn't until early afternoon that I heard from Dr. Davis' staff and even then, they indicated that they thought I had burned my arm which was ludicrous, as I had left the message with 2 different people. I do not purport to blame Dr. Davis/staff for my reaction - but I think being in the medical services field requires a level of empathy, particularly when one of your clients is undergoing an obvious and painful reaction - and her failure to even tend to me makes me wonder if my subsequent reaction could have been mitigated. IT'S BEEN 2 WEEKS AND I STILL HAVE DARK BURN MARKS ON MY FACE - definitely not something that could've been treated with a Benadryl. I strongly encourage others to be weary of this doctor, and to consider whether saving money is worth potentially damaging their skin -- I have learned my lesson and would hope to spare others from undergoing what I did. Seriously, the negative reviews are there for a reason; time and again, people indicate that she is only after money. Take it from me and avoid any long term damage to your skin.
Goodbye acne scars! – Acne has been an issue for a great part of my life. Now that I am in my 30's, I have been left with very unattractive acne scars. I decided to visit Dr. Davis and was very pleased at the different options she offered me. She really took the time to explain each one. The staff is very friendly and I was able to secure my first appointment the same day I called. There was pretty much no waiting time at the office, apart from filling out a couple of forms. I feel I made the right choice in choosing this dermatologist.
Great Dermatologist! – I recently visited Dr. Davis to have something biopsied and Dr. Davis was very courteous and caring during the entire procedure. I felt safe and in good hands. I highly recommend her!
Great Experience! – My skin has not looked this good in years! I made the right choice in calling for an appointment and being consistent with the treatments. Dr. Davis is gentle and understanding and has a great staff! I highly recommend her.
Thank you Dr. Davis! – I have been to three dermatologists in the span of my life which is pretty long. Never have I had any one with the skill and care as Dr. Davis. I feel as though I have succeeded in finding not only the fountain of youth but I have watched my face come back to a softness that was not there before.
Dr. Davis is truly an artist and I must say from the bottom of my heart thank you for rescuing me from the ravages of age.
To all who have not had a chance to visit with Dr. Davis or have her skilled hands perform the miracles that only she can do. I recommend you take full advantage of this dedicated doctor who has allowed me NOT TO HAVE A FACE LIFT, but to gently have a resurrection.
One of the worse doctors ever! – I wish I could give zero stars but alas the lowest rating possible is one......She cares about one thing and that is making money. Charges for tests that others don't and charges extra money to give information during a visit.....Oh, and she also tries to push her brothers dental clinic. Please don't waste your time with her and look elsewhere. And also the reviews here can't be accurate, if you look around she has mostly negative reviews and for a good reason too....
Great Derm & Laser Hair Removal – I tried laser hair removal with Dr. Davis for a large area (bikini) & it's been life changing. It takes about 6 treatments to work and then the hair will suddenly stop growing back, and you can shave but not wax in the meantime, but it is very effective and only requires about a once a year update. I then went to American Laser for underarms - although they offer a cheaper package, it took more than 12 treatments and the hair was still not gone. In the end, it's much cheaper (cost and pain-wise) and more effective with Dr. Davis. Dr. Davis is very methodical when it comes to any skin conditions and is very knowledgeable. She is great with acne and will work with you to find the treatment that works best for your skin, lifestyle and preferences. Appointments are easy to get and there is rarely much time spend in the waiting room. I recommend her highly!
Great Derm! – Dr. Davis gave me many options when it came to curing my acne. She also gave me samples to try and offered to call in whichever ones I liked best. Most importantly, I was able to be seen right away! I called on a Monday and was seen on Tuesday. I was even offered a Monday appointment, but I wasn't able to get away from work. There was no wait when I arrived and the staff was friendly.
Great Dermatologist! – I had both Botox and Restylane with Dr. Davis recently and I am so thrilled with the results! She knew exactly what I was looking for and prepared me for what results I would get. She made me look younger, fresher, yet still natural. I will defintely be returning for more treatments!
