Dr. Magel did my fillers today. I am so pleased with the results. I was terrified I would look 'done' but I could not be happier with the results. I look like me, but me years ago before gravity hit. Thank you again to Dr. Magel and his nurse Jacqueline, it was painless and I am very happy!
in Gastonia, NC |
I want to say that Dr. Magel is 'Perfect' but I do not want to sound disingenuous because I am not, and he truly is too good to be true! He explains everything he does and why, is conscious of any discomfort a precedure causes and takes care to provide as painless an experience as possible. I cannot say enough good things as my experiences have been wonderful and every procedure performed with incredible results! I highly recommend him to all!
in Gastonia, NC |
Dr. Magel is so great!! He is very kind and handsome and has a very gentle touch. I was terrified to come in and it wasn't bad at all. Coming back to him soon. Cannot say thank you enough

Love the one one I get with doctor and assistants. Doctor suggests the treatments and never tries to push you into anything you are comfortable with. Very please with the outcome of my treatments.

Very professional. Dr. Magel did an excellent job on my Botox and fillers. He approaches it like an artist and is very thoughtful about the result he and his patient are looking to achieve. My face looks fantastic.

Dr. Magel is awesome! He is very knowledgable and up-to-date on dermatological/cosmetic procedures. He treats each patient based on his/her individual needs and is personally invested in his treatments. Dr. Magel is VERY thorough~ he takes his time and explains the rationale behind his technique.

The moment I came in the office he attended to all my needs that I was concerned about. In just a few weeks the medication that he prescribed me cleared my condition up that I came in for. I would recommend him to all my friends and family. Everyone here at this office is amazing.

He is from Texas of course he is great! Very informative much appreciated.

I am very pleased with my cosmetic results. I had issues in the past with Botox making my brows look and feel heavy so I was cautious about getting any Botox in any area but my crows feet. I am so pleased with the lift I have on my brows that I just want to share and let the Doctor and his staff member (Jessica) know that I will return and appreciate them. Great doctor great results!
in Hickory, NC |
On the whole, Dr. Magel is fine. The staff at the Tate Blvd location is the issue. I was consistently treated rudely in by the reception staff and the nurse. I would think that the staff would be a little bit friendlier to patients seeking a cosmetic procedure and paying a premium price for an elective procedure. I was spoken to shortly almost as if I was bothering them by being there. As a result, I changed doctors and have recommended others to avoid going here.
We appreciate the candid feedback and kind words about our staff member. We strive to always provide superior care and set the stage for the best possible patient experience. We would like to extend our apologies if at anytime we were perceived to be insensitive to a patient request or condition. That is never our intention and going forward we will address this with our staff to improve our patient interactions. Best wishes!

I was worked in and was seen rather quickly. I am very relieved after my appointmrnt because it has been an issue that i have worried about for 8 years. I am now happy to know that my condition is completely normal. Which is a big relief.
in Gastonia, NC |
Magel is a very nice Doc. He talks a little fast but the assistant did a great job of explaining what I needed to do. I am glad I came to this office.
in Gastonia, NC |
He stayed in the room with my son and I until every question had been answered. And he made sure that I understood everything before he left. I like that a lot.
in Newton, NC |
Excellent provider and nursing staff. Very friendly and informative. Made me feel very comfortable during my yearly skin check. I actually switched providers within their practice and an happy. Physician is very warm and inviting. Explained each and every thing he was doing and what he found and suggested. His nurse Cristal was very nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend (and have) this physician and will never see Dr. Hunt at the practice again. I would give him a A+++ rating if asked.
