Dr. Waldorf is the best dermatologist I have ever been to, and with a life-long history of troubled skin....I've been to many. Since I became a patient...over 10 years ago, the improvement in my appearance has exceeded my expectations. I am eternally grateful to her!
5 out of 5 stars Dermatology
I gave Dr. Heidi Waldorf 5 stars but if I could I would give her 10! Both Dr. and staff are caring and professional. I have been a patient for about 10 years and I wouldn't even consider another Dr for my cosmetic procedures. Dr. Heidi Waldorf has exceeded my expectations !!!! Dr. Waldorf has always listened to my concerns and advised the best course of actions. I always get compliments after...
5 out of 5 stars Laser Hair Removal
I sought out laser hair both from a perspective of curiosity and practicality—I had heard countless friend’s positive feedback and on top of that, I had stubborn in-grown hairs that were never alleviated by waxing or sugaring. My hesitation to begin the treatment came from the intimidation of finding the right doctor. In attempts to locate the best of the best, I consulted RealSelf.com to fin...

Dr. Heidi Waldorf is the only one I will trust to apply a laser beam to my face. She has been treating my rosacea with laser and it has been truly life changing. She is always cautious and starts slow to see how you'll react. With her treatment, the redness that was progressively worsening has been nearly completely reversed. She is professional, incredibly bright and very personable. I...
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Waldorf is amazing! Her skills in cosmetic dermatology are superb. She is a leader in the latest aesthetic and rejuvenation treatments. I have been to other cosmetic dermatologists before I was treated by Dr. Waldorf and I find her to be the most skillful. I also appreciate her candid approach to what’s best for the optimum outcome. Having such a great experience compelled me to r...

I highly recommend Dr. Heidi Waldorf - she is incredibly competent and familar with all of the newest procedures. Absolutely love her staff too. She uses the clear and brilliant lasers to improve skin quality - it produces what is like a light sunburn that day - Heidi can recommend what to use on your face after the procedure if you are uncomfortable with any redness as she has and knows all...
5 out of 5 stars Restylane Lyft
Dr. Heidi is the consummate professional in every way. Her experience, her knowledge and her great skill are unparalleled in my opinion. She has the gift of being able to look at a face and know exactly what it needs to reflect a refreshed and younger look. She never has created what I consider to be the ghoulish look of so many dermatologists who don't understand or have a feel for facial structure like she does. She does enough but NEVER too much which many doctors don't understand. I walk out of her office knowing that the comments are always, "I never would have known" you had anything done!
5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse
My interactions with Dr. Waldorf have always been enjoyable! She is very focused and methodical and I feel confident in her her hands. If I've had a question after a procedure she has always called me or emailed me back straightaway. She has a lovely, caring disposition and I'm always pleased with her work and care!

You can't put a price on your medical care, at least I can't. Finding a doctor that I trust and feel safe with is my peace of mind. I love Dr. Heidi Waldorf because she's all that to me and more. She's truly brilliant and always interested in my total well being. That's a lot to get these days. Dr. Waldorf has been my dermatologist for over 4 years. She's knowledgeable and discusses and explains everything openly and honestly--I always have options. She really takes her time with me ( I ask a million questions.) I feel safe with my treatment experience as I know I'm in her skilled and magical hands that work wonders. She's an artist. I feel rejuvenated when I leave her office. I look like myself (or as someone said, like my younger sister) but nothing more dramatic than that. Thank goodness. I don't like problems and there's never one. Dr. Waldorf gives me clear instructions about what to do ahead of time and she always follows up afterwards to make sure I'm ok and following my aftercare. instructions.

I recommend that patients have a full cosmetic consult so my staff and I can individualize a noninvasive rejuvenation regimen and treatment plan. Our goal is natural healthy results.
