Disfigurement for life --- from a simple procedure
5 out of 5 stars Accutane
I would recommend Dr. Kristel Polder and her assistant Pearl to anyone, especially any ladies looking for a very qualifed dermatologist and staff.
5 out of 5 stars Rosacea Treatment
I was referred to Dr. Polder for treatment of my rosacea outbreaks. She took the time to listen to me about my previous treatments and began a new plan. The new plan worked GREAT! I began to see results within a couple of weeks. When I went in for my 1 month follow up, I was amazed at the results. Dr. Polder and her staff are always willing to take the time to listen and help you find the best treatment for you. She and her staff are very quick to respond to any and all questions. I am always telling my friends about her and the office if they are in need of a Dermatologist!
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
Dr. Polder was so knowledgeable when I was asking her about lip enhancement. I'd had some Juvederm injections before for my lips but didn't see any difference so I explained to her what I wanted and she listened! She explained the appropriate balance of upper and lower lip size and when she was done, my lips were perfect! Bigger but very natural looking! I am SO happy with the result!!
