5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

24 Year Old Young Wall Streeter in Need of Acne Scar Help -New York

Dr. Schweiger was extremely professional and efficient. Someone people wrote here that he is too much of a hurry - but he is in demand so much he has to see the other 10 patients lined up behind you. He is the best in the city for laser procedures and the $4000 for the FAST treatment is a good price. You get the CO2 ablative and the Fraxel one month after which combined would run you probably the same amount anywhere else. Dr. Schweiger runs a great professional practice and is the foremost in his field - he does heavy duty serious acne scarring 100% of the time whereas most other dermatologists make their money from acne treatment or light peels and other "fluffy" procedures. Before my CO2 and Fraxel he saw several areas that could benefit from subcision and did it for free. That would run you an additional $400 to $500 anywhere else.

Coolsculpting then Trusculpt - New York

I had Julie do my trusculpt procedure (She's a Physician Assistant) and loved it! We chatted and there was Netflix to watch, she also made sure I was comfortable and made me think I was having a spa day instead of at a doctors office.

Massachusetts Kid, in Need of Smooth Skin - Manhattan, NY

Very professional, honest friendly guy.

Laser Treatment

I went to NY from RI hoping this procedure would work or at least give me the 70% improvement that his "clinical" more like professional sales staff promised. They also uphold me $1200 for plasma injections. What a waste. After many weeks of downtime and then waiting the required 6 months to see improvement, I am left with the same exact acne scars and it didn't even improve texture,...

Great Experience- AMAZING Service and Great Results - Midtown, NY

I've been going to Dr. Schweiger's office for over a year now- I travel all the way from Virginia to see him! And I would say that it is DEFINITELY worth it. Dr. Schweiger is kind and took his time addressing my concerns. Overall, I felt like the whole office was set up to be extremely comfortable for patients. I was offered water, a blanket, and a hand to hold while I was having my procedure...

Works, But Don't Expect Miracles - New York

The doctor was fine - Nothing special. His staff, on the other hand, was amazing. The assistant who was with me through the procedure was incredibly sweet and helpful. Overall, I would recommend.

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

It Works - New York, NY

I've tried lots of different things and this is the only non surgical procedure that actually works. I did my lower abdomen 6 weeks ago and have seen results and just did my love handles as well. The office staff is great. You watch apple tv while you sit there so you are not bored. It's not painless. The first 7 minutes are the worst. And after its numb for a couple of weeks...

Worst Service Ever - New York, NY

Very unprofessional. Dr. Schweiger burned my skin and made my skin worse. I had to see a dermatologist after this to fix my skin. He was rated one of the worst doctors in NYC by five publications. Truly awful.

3 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment

Short Term Improvement but Didn't Appreciate the Attitude. - New York, NY

see above. Also, i was told that my acne should be almost completely cured from their treatment and I would be able to maintain my results. I don't appreciate being given false hope. My current doctor says that from her experience, acne is a life-long issue that needs constant treatment or else it will come back.

4 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

After 6 Months, Very Satisfied with Results - New York, NY

Expensive and car-salesman-like, but seemingly competent. I was satisfied with the treatment overall, so I consider him to be good.
