1 out of 5 stars Accutane

Please Be Careful - Van Nuys, CA

Please be careful with your children having acne and this doctor prescribing accutane. he misdiagnosed and mistreated my son resulting in keliods scars all over his face, shoulders, neck and back. he is badly scarred for life and this doctor didn't even call to follow up after we had to go to emergency! be very, very careful from this guy.

4 out of 5 stars Silikon 1000

He's a Pro - Sherman Oaks, CA

I've only been twice, the first time I waited 20 min, the second I waited over an hour. but he did a great job and the staff was very apologetic and kind. So far happy with results. I have one or two more apps with him.

2 out of 5 stars Lip Surgery

Silicone Removal from Lower Lip - Sherman Oaks, CA

Dr W seems like he is a very nice man, I find it all an act in my opinion, although I find his business practices to be very poor. I had a lip reduction where he said he was going to be "conservative" even though I asked him to be aggressive. I paid $2,200.00 for the procedure which produced NO RESULT AT ALL, my lower lip looked EXACTLY the same. When I questioned him about a revision he said it would be ANOTHER $2,200.00!! So I spent $2,200.00 for a procedure that produced no result and he wouldnt budge on the revision price. To me, if I go to a Dr for a surgical service I expect a result. He even had the nerve during a follow up treatment to say into his little hand held recorder that "patient is extremely happy with result" which was NOT TRUE. I understand that there is no way to effectively guarantee a result everytime since everyone is different, but I found another Dr that did what I asked him to do and I got a MUCH better result because I asked him to be aggressive and he was - problem solved. Also worth mentioning is that while I was having the procedure done I mentioned to Dr W that my prescription for Retin A had run out and so since I was in his office anyway having this procedure done I asked if he wouldnt mind writing me up a prescription. After he wrote me the prescription and handed it to me Dr W wanted to charge me $70.00 for a "Dr's Fee" to write me a prescription for Retin-A even though I was already in his office paying $2,200 for a procedure. PURE GREED in my opinion. I told him I wasnt paying any $70.00 fee for him to write on a piece of paper so I balled up the prescription and thew it in the trash.
