Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   September 19, 1997
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I had laser resurfacing done when I was 29 to reduce the appearance of acne scarring twice for a small area on my cheeks. The first procedure didn't do much so he suggested a second procedure which he punched, stitched and lasered the ice pick scars i had. I made several follow up appointments but he only saw me once after the second treatment and completely avoided me for 3 appointments after by making me wait more than an hour becoming upset which eventually led me to walking out. He never called either. The one appt he did see me, I had asked why I had 2 huge scabs on my nose. A place where I had no scarring. He said "not to worry and that noses always come back". Well, more than 10 years and my nose still has two huge divots and the ice pick scars are 3 times wider than they were. I learned later by my own research that I was probably burned with a defective co2 laser. Yet the way he handled me, knowing he had drastically worsened the face of a pretty young woman for the rest of her life by lying and avoiding is disgusting and hurtful. I am embarrassed to show before and after photos, but will if it will help someone who has also been damaged by him.
