I went in for laser (Versapulse) treatment of the brown spots on my hands, since my hands didn't match my face.

The cost that the office quoted me on the phone was $300 for 15 mins of treatment time. I thought this was reasonable because 2 other offices in CA (Dr. Berman in Palo Alto - who has questionable reviews on Craigslist: his office charges $600 for each hand. I also looked into Dr. Fitzpatrick's office in La Jolla - very good reviews in VOGUE. His office quoted me $650 for every 10 spots to be zapped with the Nd:YAG) charged twice as much.

Well, I went to Dr. Kosarek a bit hesitant because El Paso is not exactly known as a beauty center. Nonetheless, her office is immaculate and beautifully decorated. Her staff is very kind and knowledgeable about my condition presented.

I have been to Celibre in Torrance 3 times for diode laser there and I would put Dr. Kosarek's practice right up there with the best of them.

Anyway, (are you sitting down) she and her staff zapped 170 brown spots total on both hands and arms to my elbows!!!! And I was only charged $300 for all of this treatment. You can imagine my happiness with this office for such a thorough treatment. I called my husband and told him I got about $10k worth of laser done for $300.

Good doctors deserve a good write up and so I wanted to let anyone whose looking know that they may want to check this office out.
