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
WHAT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT

LovelySkin.com and FixMySkin 1%
Hydrocortisone Healing Balm have

THREE WORDS THAT BEST DESCRIBE ME
Resourceful, strategic, optimistic
CELEB PHOTO MY PATIENTS MOST OFTEN BRING IN
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
MOST MEMORABLE PATIENT REACTION
Happiness, that never gets old
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
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
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
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
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
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,
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
