These patient experiences are not necessarily representative of all patients. Do not use these to decide upon undergoing a procedure. A thorough consultation with a board-certified physician is required to determine whether a procedure is right for you. Many patients ask us to speak with other patients who have undergone the procedure(s) that they are considering. Due to their desire to hear other patients’ experiences, we used to give them the phone numbers of other patients (with their permission); however, this was overwhelming. Therefore, we placed here some of those patients’ experiences and “Thank You” letters for your convenience. These truly represent their own experiences and are not endorsements of any kind.
Shared Written Experiences
“I have used both V-beam and Genesis machines to treat a Port wine stain that I’ve had since I was little. After 8 or 9 treatments of the V-beam laser, I would say that the stain has decreased dramatically by about 85-90%. Admittedly, the V-beam caused pain and bruising that stayed for about 6 weeks, but it definitely works. The other machine causes no pain whatsoever and it seems to have worked too. I would strongly recommend the use of these machines because they work really well”
“Dear Dr. Fox,
I want to thank you for the miraDry procedure! It has completely changed my life and given me new confidence. All my T-shirts now site in a drawer unused; I can wear anything I want with nothing underneath and be confident the world isn’t seeing me sweat! A true game changer! Embarrassing stains used to be in the forefront of my mind, now I don’t think of it at all”
“I am writing to express my deep gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Ecker for his superb professional care, kindness, patience and…cheerful smile. Your job is excellent! Many thanks! Wishing you all the BEST!”
“Dear Dr. Fox,
I am very happy with the laser surgery I received from you in December of 2012 and January of 2013. My freckles and brown spots are mostly gone and my skin is much cleaner and looks brighter. Thank you so much for doing what I didn’t know you could do.”
“Before miraDry, I wouldn’t dare wear a shirt without an undershirt in fear of noticeable sweat stains. Now that I don’t have to worry about sweating, social situations are much easier.
I know that treatments for excessive sweating existed long before miraDry, but I never tried them because they were expensive and needed to be repeated frequently.
miraDry requires no post-procedure maintenance and I would gladly recommend it to anybody suffering from excessive sweating.”
“Before undergoing miraDry, I would change undershirts a few times a day to prevent others from noticing my sweat stains. A year after my miraDry procedure, I can wear the same undershirt the whole day.
miraDry has made me more confident, which has definitely helped my career.”
“After visiting numerous clinics to find the ‘perfect fit,’ I found Dr. Elan Singer and his outstanding team at Advanced Dermatology. I knew instantly that I picked the right place.
After losing over 120 pounds via the LapBand Procedure, although a great feat in itself, I knew that my journey was not yet complete. I had a lot of excess skin that I was unhappy with and I knew it had to come off to give me the look I wanted. The solution to this troublesome problem was deciding to go for plastic surgery.
With this in mind, I went on a quest to find the right doctor. And after meeting with about 7 to 8 doctors and almost giving up hope, I met with Dr. Singer and his team at Advanced Dermatology.
I can’t say enough about Dr. Singer and his staff and what they have done for me. The part that stands out the most to me was that I was made to feel comfortable every single step of the way.
After just the first consultation, I knew this was the right Doctor for me. The care, professionalism, quality, in addition to the comfortable environment offered by Dr Singer, Stacie and Andrea, were what helped me make my decision.
This was more than a mere doctor-patient relationship. It was as if we instantly became family. I was not just another number or patient to them. We got to know each other on a first name basis. The ease with which I was able to talk to them, and their willingness to address any and all of my questions or concerns puts them in a category of their own.
I am EXTREMELY pleased with my experience and would without a doubt recommend Dr. Singer to anyone interested in plastic surgery.
After having my first surgery on January 15th, 2013 and admiring the results, I can’t wait to book my next procedure! The icing on the cake is that I know I will be in good hands no matter what. I mean just look at how great the first surgery went!”
“I had the VersaPulse laser done for lentigos. I am very happy that I no longer have brown spots. A friend recommended I go to Dr. Fox after other doctors were not able to help me.”
“Having the Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus injected for the first time today was a simple procedure administered by Dr. Fox. Happily it seems to have filled in some lines, grooves and wrinkles in the lower facial area. I am pleased with the improvement and hope it will continue to yield the look it now appears to give.”
“I had the Pixel – CO2 laser for facial resurfacing. I had this procedure with Dr. Fox. He is a very skilled doctor. He did a wonderful job. I am very pleased with the results and would definitely do it again in the future. He is very caring and meticulous in his work. I would definitely recommend this procedure for a younger and smoother complexion.
– Anita D.
“I had the Pixel laser performed on my face back in 2008. My skin is still very smooth and tight and I am still very satisfied with the procedure. My shaving is easier than before due to this treatment.
I would say I am still at 90% improvement since the treatment and would recommend it to anyone interested in having it done.
I love the compliments from all the young ladies that come my way.”
– R. A.
“Very happy I came to Advanced Dermatology. I’ve been to 3 different doctors including dermatologists and misdiagnosed every time. Since my first visit, condition cleared almost immediately.”
– Helen D.
“Health has its good moments and scary ones. Dermatology is the same. The doctors and staff at Advanced Dermatology get us through both these kinds of moments with expertise, care and humor. Recently, I have experienced both and have been thankful for the care provided by these professionals. I would recommend them to a friend–they is no higher complement.”
– Robert L.
“Dear Dr. Friedler,
You recently removed a spot on my face. Before getting treated, I was constantly asked when I would get that spot looked at. By nature I am reluctant to visit doctors, but I am glad I visited your office. My face looks great now that the blemish has been removed. Your name has been added to my short list of doctors that I am willing to visit.”
– Anthony A.
“I am a proud patient of Dr. Fox’s. At Advanced Dermatology, Dr. Fox has saved years off my face and returned my skin to a more youthful appearance. I underwent a significant reduction of lines, sun spots and discolorations all due to excessive sun damage from my teenage years. Nobody can believe my skin was ever so damaged.”
– Adriene K.
“I have been here for 2 laser treatments (Fraxel and Erbium). It was a great experience. The medical staff was very supportive and Dr. Fox answered all the questions I had.”
– Dr. P.
“I traveled from New Jersey to see Dr. Bowe because I didn’t trust
anyone in my area to do Sculptra. I’ve heard Sculptra is very
technique/doctor-dependent, so I wanted to go to the best. Wise
decision! I ended up coming back a total of 3 times to her office.
She injected 2 vials the first time, 2 vials the second time (a month
later) and then a 5th vial the last time (about a month after that).
I’m in my 50’s, so I’m sure the number of vials has to do with your age,
weight, etc. It was pricey, but worth every penny because I look
absolutely incredible. Everyone compliments me, but it’s not obvious
to anyone that I’ve “had work done.” The hollows under my eyes and in
my cheeks are gone, and my skin is radiant. Dr. Bowe was meticulous
with her injections, and she had such a soft touch that I barely felt
any discomfort and hardly had any bruising or swelling. I couldn’t be
more pleased with the result!”
