About

Bio

As a board-certified dermatologic surgeon, I co-founded The New York Aesthetic Consultants, an accredited office-based multi-specialty cosmetic, dermatologic and plastic surgery facility in Manhattan. My goal is to provide patients with the best care, best treatment guidance and provide the most natural-looking results with the least invasive treatments. In addition to The New York Aesthetic Consultants , I volunteer my time teaching and mentoring several international fellows in the Department of Dermatologic Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City – a department I helped create and had the opportunity to serve as their first director in 1993. I’ve enjoyed delivering many professional presentations at national society meetings, writing two books, Liposuction and Botox, several peer-reviewed medical journal articles, and am a contributing writer for RealSelf.com, a Web site that provides people with valuable and helpful information related to cosmetic services, as well as a platform to ask credible doctors questions.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Thank you. When my symptoms started I was not on any new meds. Also as far as I know, I don't have Lyme disease. Thank you again for your response

Thank you, your answer or tip was very helpful! Also helped me understand the causes! I was recently told I have hypo thyroidism.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thanks for sharing the tip, but I wonder how long will it take to see these initial improvements ?
