Dr. Atkin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Atkin "At Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar, I offer a variety of general and cosmetic dermatology treatments, including Juvéderm®, Ulthera®, BOTOX® Cosmetic, laser skin resurfacing, and Thermage®. I can also help to improve skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, scarring, and many others. Patients come to me with concerns ranging from mild conditions to more severe skin diseases. Since skin problems can make people very self-conscious, I strive to help patients feel comfortable and at ease in my office. I put a high value on the doctor-patient relationship and do my best to answer any and all questions or concerns patients may have. My goal is to improve the health of your skin and bring out your natural beauty. If you are considering skin restoration treatments, like microdermabrasion, Coolsculpting by ZELTIQ™, or other advanced options, I would be happy to sit down with you and discuss how you can reach your aesthetic goals."

Very unprofessional. Made me feel as if I was bothering them. Not a ton of knowledge. A waste of time and money. The receptionist was very nice.
