MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

Not long after my 40th birthday, I went to Dr Abergel to see what possibilities existed for taking care of facial wrinkles. I didn't like what I saw in the mirror. He suggested a chemical peel. Even though I signed a paper describing some of the risks of this proceedure, I was assured that the chances were slim that anything would go wrong. This proceedure was way too drastic for what I was looking for and though I was foolish to do it, I feel that it was up to the doctor to say no,this is not an appropriate proceedure. I feel that Dr. Abergel was very happy to take my money and do this proceedure. The results were acid burns on my upper lip and the side of my jaw. I also have what looks like a gash in my forehead.Dr. Abergel refused to admit that the burns and scars were a result of the chemical peel, he refused to appologize, and refused to honnor my signed contract a few years later which stated that he would correct anything that went wrong. He called the chemical burns on my face "a condition" and suggested that they were the result of "sun damage". Other Drs. that I have consulted since, have said that they do not use this proceedure because it is too risky.I do not feel that DR. Abergel is an honest or ethical doctor. I feel he is willing to make money off of people any way he can.
