5 out of 5 stars Age Spots Treatment

I Love Dr. Sonia! - Danville, CA

She's the doctor for my entire family and we all just love her. There are not enough words to say what a great person Dr. Sonia is, and her professionalism goes beyond words. She has made me feel good about myself as a woman. She is an excellent doctor and all of her employees are just as great as she it. I'm very pleased with my results - amazed, in fact. Dr. Sonia performed wonders. I am so happy your office opened a third office in the bay area. Your expertise is needed here.

5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment

Dr. Sonia is Amazing - Danville, CA

Saw her on Kron4 during morning news. I'm so pleased with Elite MD. Dr. Sonia is amazing. I've had horrible acne and scarring for 9 years and started to become annoyed with constant breakouts and having to wear makeup. So after watching the news one day, I saw Dr. Sonia on Kron4 and decided to set up an appointment. I'ts only been three months and I look 70% better. I can walk out of the house without putting my mask on. Thanks Dr. Sonia your the greatest!

My Experience - Danville, CA

I am so happy with my procedure! They made me feel like I was in the hands of true professionals. They were not as close to me as I would like but it was worth it.

5 out of 5 stars Dysport

Elite MD - The Best!!!!

How do I receive more compliments on my skin at 50 then I did at an earlier age? Answer, Elite MD It is impossible for me to write in such a few words how I feel about Elite MD and the team behind it. People do not realize that by taking a few steps each year in maintaining your skin care is not only more cost effective, but can prevent you from major expenses in the future, and the most important benefit is how GREAT you feel about yourself even as you age. From Linda their Clinical Licensed Aesthetician, Jeff with his amazing skills with lasers and Cynthia who could be truly labeled as a liquid artist, I have never met a team that is more passionate in what they do, and we all know the outstanding results that come from those who love what they do. It is crazy how I’m getting so many more compliments on my skin at 50 than ever before. I would love to be able to include my cell number so that anyone who is interested could call me directly. However, don’t take my word for it, make one appointment with anyone on the team, it will be the greatest gift you can give yourself and we all know there is NOTHING more important than feeling the best you can be, it makes dealing with all of the rest that life has to dish out a lot more bearable 

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Amazing Practice! - Danville, CA

I first met Dr. Sonia about four years ago after seeing her on KRON 4. I called and made a consultation for laser liposuction. Dr. Sonia spent a good amount of time with me consulting me about the procedure and then I even met Dr. Bansal the same day. Dr. Sonia was so informative and made me feel so comfortable that soon after I scheduled my procedure. Since then I have used Dr. Sonia for...

5 out of 5 stars V Beam

Laser Treatment at EliteMD - Great Results and Education - Danville, CA

I recently had a V-beam laser treatment with Jeff Wheaton, RN and I was blown away with my experience. I learned so much about my skin, and about the different technologies that EliteMD and Jeff can provide to improve my skin tone, color and health. I had the V-beam treatment and had fantastic results!

1 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal

Worst Experience Ever! Avoid This Doctors Practice. You Will Be Cheated out of Your Money - Danville, CA

It was my third time (first time at this clinic) for Laser Hair removal and I wasnt sure what their way of doing things was. I told front desk lady that I needed to shave before the laser hair removal (she says oh you don't need to the technician will do it for you). When technician took me in he literally took just 2 minutes to do procedure and said I was done (without shaving my hair at all) and I thought he was just prepping. Really? you are done in 2 minutes? If you do your research out there (many doctors have commented on this on real Self) the hair needs to be shaved very close to skin in order for laser to be effective otherwise the energy is obsorbed by all the hair that is outside of skin. Well this is true because when all hair came back the improvement was Zero. Yes it takes a few laser treatments but still you are supposed to see some improvement if the treatment is done right. The Staff was despicable and argumentative and said they would give me full refund. Its been 6 months and no refund yet. I called in today and they said they sent a check out for partial refund (again very argumentative and the woman at front desk started giving me a lesson on how laser works and I asked her is she was the doctor or technician and of course she is not). Oh and I had to wait half hour (past my appointment time) to get treated :( Avoid this place save your time and money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Worst experience ever!

Severe Pain from Dysport - Danville, CA

This is the 3rd time I have used dysport. Never previously with problems. My appt. was at 11:00 and from the moment of injection I have been in pain. I felt a flood of nausea come over me and had heart palpitations. I literally thought I was going to pass out. I have had an intense headache 5+ hours. I went online to see if others had this type of reaction and was surprised at all the...
