I have worked in the helping professions for 6 years as both a social worker and a therapist. I have also worked at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies since 2006. During this time I have met many medical doctors, medical professionals, and alternative health practitioners, and I truly feel Dr. Engler is one of the best doctors I have ever met. He is a truly special person and I highly recommend him and his work.

I am a patient of Dr. Alan Engler; he removed a fatty lipoma from my forehead. I found my treatment by Dr. Engler to be very thorough and caring. Before the procedure he clearly explained what work he would be doing. The day of the procedure I felt very relaxed, safe, and well cared for. My follow up appointments were great. I was also shocked that the scar from the procedure was so minimal that I truly didn't even consider it a scar.

My mother was also a patient of Dr. Engler prior to me. In regard to her treatment, he was just as thorough and caring. She had a more extensive aesthetic procedure and is just as thrilled with her result. During her recovery at home we had called him a few times and he always returned our phone calls. He was very patient when giving us further instructions and support during her recovery.

Overall, I feel Dr. Engler is very competent and skillful doctor, as well as a very good-hearted person. He is generous with his time and attention and encourages patients to ask questions. He is also flexible and understanding. He is very sensitive and has a great sense of humor, too. His office is a warm and friendly environment with a caring staff. They return all phone calls and are always very kind and supportive. I always leave Dr. Engler's office feeling better and happier than when I arrived. I feel grateful to have had such a skillful, competent, and good-hearted doctor to work on my lipoma.
