Introduction

As a way of introduction, I want to tell you a little about who I am, what kind of care you can expect for your skin concerns, and some specifics about how the practice is organized.

I am a board-certified family medicine physician with sixteen years experience. 
My professional memberships include:

  • Member, Texas Medical Association
  • Member, American Academy of Family Physicians
  • American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery
In the past few years, there have been exciting new advances in laser technology. 

These advances allow me to offer the latest methods of treating many skin lesions that before now were difficult or impossible to remove.

We provide a full range of comprehensive cosmetic laser and associated skin care services, to offer patients an expanded variety of treatment choices.

My emphasis will be on establishing a close personal relationship with all of you, for I believe it is in the context of this relationship that I can provide you with the best care.

Continuity of care and consistent communication are essential to this.  Should you ever require a sub-specialist, I will refer you to a provider of service whom I know and trust.  This will enable me to coordinate your care, ensure continuity, and maximize the benefit to your overall cosmetic skin care.
The purpose of my cosmetic laser and aesthetic services is to provide comprehensive cosmetic skin care for men and women.  Your first appointment will be scheduled to gather information and making a diagnosis of your skin condition.  This initial visit should take 15-30 minutes.  If your condition is appropriate for laser therapy, we can show you a video about how the lasers works and also discuss a treatment plan which includes; cost, aftercare, and if more than one treatment would be necessary. 

If you decide that laser therapy is right for you, in most instances you may be treated that day (most treatments take less than 15 minutes), or schedule an appointment at your convenience. Through efficient scheduling, your appointments are arranged so that treatment is completed as quickly as possible, consistent with the highest quality of providing laser therapy. 

It is our policy that patients are given the personal attention they deserve.   An appointment is a reservation of time.  We do not double-book other patients in your appointment period.  The time scheduled for you is for you alone.  Our office prides itself in respecting patients’ time, and we ask them to respect ours.  Therefore, we must have at least 48 hours notice of any change in your appointment.  If less than 24 hours notice is given, you may be subject to a charge.

A word about finances: Our goal is to deliver the finest dermatological laser services at a fair price.  The fee for any procedure depends on several factors.  Some factors include the type of service, the number of visits of your treatment plan, and whether you are having us provide several different services.  Our office policy is that payment be made at the time of the office visit.  For your convenience, we accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover Card, American Express and personal checks. 

Our consultation appointment, which covers discussion of your needs, the overall degree of success you may achieve, and your total investment, is an excellent time to ask questions about cost.

Our office hours are regularly Monday through Saturday.  Laser treatments are usually provided on Tuesday and Saturday mornings 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons from 1:00 PM to 5PM, and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  If your situation requires special consideration, we will do our best to meet your needs. 

Informational consultations are available Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and are provided FREE of charge.

When the office is closed for any reason, I have an answering service 24 hours/day, seven days a week.  I can be paged for emergencies at any time.  Please tell the receptionist on the telephone if you believe it is an emergency.  If it is not an emergency, I can usually return your call within 60 – 90 minutes. 

Finally, cosmetic skin care is undergoing radical change.  This change may or may not influence how we deliver quality cosmetic skin care services. We are proud of our profession and the results we can achieve. 

We look forward to meeting and serving you with the highest quality of care.  Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to call us at 281.920.3400 and my staff will be pleased to help you in any way we can. We need your input: comments, suggestions, what works well, and what does not.  Please feel free to communicate directly with my staff or me.    

Sincerely,
