5 out of 5 stars Accutane

23 Year Old Male Went if for Second Accutane Treatment. Torrance, CA

Susan Goodlerner is an amazing dermatologist who listens and actually cares about her patients.

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra - Torrance, CA

Dr. Goodlerner is great. Very personable. Never tries to upsell you, but works with you to get the desired result. You can guarantee that she will never make you look artificial. She also helps to educate you on skin care and the reasons one benefits from fillers (natural fat loss with aging). She is very down to earth with everyone. Not a lot fluff in the office (fancy stuff). This keeps prices reasonable and keeps me coming back. I highly recommend her.

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Radiesse - Torrance, CA

Dr. Goodlerner is the best. I've been going to her for medical and cosmetic procedures for several years and highly recommend her work. She also has a great friendly staff who make you feel comfortable and always greet you with a smile.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

Completed 4 Fraxel Treatments Plus 1 Subcision - Torrance, CA

Dr. Goodlerner is very knowledgeable, professional and personable. She suites your treatment to your individual skin type. Her staff is also friendly, welcoming and assuring, which is important when you are undergoing a series of treatments and will be in the office numerous times. I would highly recommend Dr. Goodlerner and her office.
