Are you a patient of David Van Dam, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Perlane
I have been going to him for about 16 years and cannot say enough good things about the doctor and his staff. He is professional, knowledgeable and honest.
1 out of 5 stars Ultherapy
I was told by Dr. Van Dam and by his "associate" whom I later found does not even have a medical degree--that I was the "perfect candidate" for Ultherapy. I signed up, paid my $3500. It was an extremely painful procedure which was NOT performed by the doctor as I had been lead to believe. After 7 months, I've had no results but lingering numbness and pain. The practice's response to this was pretty much "tough luck - nothing we can do". I do not recommend wasting your money on Ulthera or Dr. Van Dam's practice.
