My greatest achievement…

Building a successful dermatology practice from scratch, drowning in debt and without a dollar to my name.  It’s hard to believe how far things have come in 10 years!

The future of my field is…

Non-invasive face and body rejuvenation.  Devices are becoming more and more sophisticated year to year – it’s very exciting to see the field evolve.

The biggest misconception about my field is…

That it’s all Botox and filler!  Skin cancer detection and screening is a big part of my practice.

My most requested procedures are…

The number one procedure by far is Botox.  PRP injections, various laser procedures, CoolSculpting, and filler injections aren’t far behind.

What are you best known for?

Providing my patients with a natural, more youthful look.  The goal is for someone to look like a refreshed version of themselves and not like they “had work done.”

What is your most memorable patient reaction?

The hugs I get after successfully addressing an issue that troubles my patients.  Nothing is better than that!

What sets my practice apart is…

I operate a very small, boutique patient-focused practice.  Every treatment is individualized and the care we provide is at a concierge-type level.

What I love most about my profession is…

Every day is different and every patient is different!  I interact with 30-50 different people on the days I see patients.  I’m a very social guy, so this makes my days a lot of fun!

Career defining procedure?

Liquid facelifts and Botox – I love doing both and really get to let my artistic side shine!

What new services are you excited to offer?

EMSCULPT which is a muscle building /fat reducing device.  It’s groundbreaking technology and a real game changer.
