A Minute With

1.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY PROFESSION
We are always seeking new answers to old questions and improving upon options and solutions. No other profession aims to constantly improve itself like dermatology does
2.
WHAT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
My family
3.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT HAS BEEN?
LovelySkin.com and FixMySkin 1% Hydrocortisone Healing Balm have touched over 1 million lives—it is great to have that kind of reach
4.
THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME
Resourceful, strategic, optimistic
5.
CELEB PHOTO MY PATIENTS MOST OFTEN BRING IN
Jennifer Aniston
6.
WHAT SETS MY PRACTICE APART
Everything we do is tailored to each patient, not only to address their specific concerns but also looking at them as a whole
7.
MOST MEMORABLE PATIENT REACTION
Happiness, that never gets old
8.
WHY DO YOU EMPLOY A LESS-IS-MORE PHILOSOPHY?
The simpler choice is often the best. Many doctors over-engineer things, and in the process, add to complications
9.
HOW DO YOU MANAGE PATIENT EXPECTATIONS?
My motto is to under-promise and over-deliver. Setting realistic expectations is the key to a good relationship and what distinguishes how providers retain happy patients. My patients come back because they feel they have been properly informed
10.
WHAT NEW SERVICES ARE YOU EXCITED TO OFFER?
We have more noninvasive fat removal options now that the technology has advanced so much over the past few years and even more options coming in the future
11.
WHAT IS YOUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY?
There is nothing better than being able to help others make noticeable improvements in their lives. That could mean something as simple as a cream to improve their skin or treating skin cancer. We never think of a problem as insurmountable and every time I look at a patient I want to help them improve their life, whatever their concern
12.
WHAT IS THE MOST UNIQUE THING ABOUT YOUR PRACTICE?
Instead of focusing on just one specific concern, we tailor everything we do for the patient as a whole. I’ve had many repeat patients over the years because they feel they’ve been properly informed
13.
WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON QUESTION YOU GET FROM YOUR PATIENTS?
Probably one of the most common questions I get during a consultation is “Will I look normal?” Clearly, this is essential for a good outcome and it ends up coming down to judgment, which is the most important quality of any cosmetic doctor. Often, a positive end result occurs when you employ a more conservative,
14.
HOW DO YOU SHOW YOUR PATIENTS THAT YOU CARE?
The best way to show patients we care is with excellent results and follow-up care. We want to be accessible and available, but if we provide great availability yet mediocre results, then that isn’t all that great! I also take the time to obtain great “before” pictures to compare to the “afters.” If I am not satisfied with a result, I will do anything I can to make it work. Luckily, that doesn’t happen all that often, but it is important to make sure your results match both your goals and mine
