MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

In a nutshell: Do NOT trust her.

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Zdinak. She took over Dr. Stephen Bosniak's office and many of his clients after he passed away in 2007; Dr. Bosniak performed CO2 under eye laser on me in 2006 and I did NOT need it; I was only 30 years old, with mild crepeyness of the under eye skin. He clearly recommended it for the money. He did not fully explain to me all possible risks, and as a result, my face was burned. It took OVER TWO YEARS for the skin to turn from red to pink to scarred (hypopigmented).

Dr. Zdniak was present and did not say anything. During my follow-up consultations, in which I was hysterically crying because my skin was burned and in pain (which remains today), I was told to "go dancing, because life is short."

My appointments were also scheduled at the end of the day, so as to avoid contact with other potential clients.

The office personnel were obnoxious to me, because they were aware of my situation and how devastated I was (and still am).

Is this any way to treat a patient who is in distress?

She clearly had no idea what to do/say, and would only offer me additional procedures to address skin texture issues from acne, which was why I consulted with their office in the first place!

They will say / do anything to take your money, and will lie or downplay the risks.

Also, DO NOT ALLOW ANY DOCTOR TO USE A LASER ON YOUR FACE. IT BURNS YOUR SKIN.
