Experience, experience, experience! That is very important to me! He does all sorts of clinical trials on this sort of stuff. I'm so glad I went to him! He answered all my questions before the procedure and he put me at ease which is not an easy thing to do! When it came time to do the injections it was very fast he was in and out very quickly! I was given a tour of the facility before my consultation I think the girls name was Jaime any hoot she was very sweet and helpful! Thanks to all for such a great experience I was scared to death...hahaha!!!

I have had Botox and filler on 3 occasions and am thrilled with the results. The doctor is so fast and he and his staff keep things light; it's amazing - you really are done before you know it. And no one noticed a change, except that I get lots of compliments that I look much younger than my age and that I look great! It is a huge relief to know I have experts to take care of me and guide me through looking and feeling my best. Big thank yous, as always, to the team!

For the first time in years, I finally found a physician who is EXCELLENT at administering botox. His whole staff was very good too. I am truly glad that I found this physician. I will keep coming back even if I have to travel to Omaha. He is definitely worth it.

Dr. Schlessinger has an excellent rapport with patients with an exceptional bedside manner, and his staff are warm and inviting. I chose Dr. Schlessinger as I wanted an experienced physician to work with regarding any type of skin issues.

My doctor informed me completely of all side effects. Gave me a long list of what to expect and what to do to make sure that complications were minimized and I was prepared.

I was disappointed in the results. I should have asked more questions.

I was referred to Dr Joel Schlessinger initially almost 12 years ago by my nurse manager. A referral within the medical community to other practitioners is a high compliment . I have been a patient ever since and have experienced both the cosmetic side and the dermatological side. One incident stands out,I had a very ill daughter last summer, Dr. and his staff including his PA were very interested medically and just emotionally also. They care about my family and day to day life, knowing that our well being is often reflected in our skin. Genuine, honest, accurate, integrity, compassion.. important character traits to me, a fellow provider of medical care. Thank you!

this provider review is still ongoing, I will finish it sometime in the 30 to 60 day mark because I believe the results are a big portion of a proper review
