The flesh of the upper eyelids were resting on my eyelashes. I sought the expertise of Dr Melanie Ho Erb. Dr Erb took the time to explain things to me. She also listens. I look for these qualities in a physician. She performed the surgery. Everything healed nicely. Everyone said that my eyes looked so natural. I felt good that I had it done and have never had a problem since. Dr Melanie Erb is extremely knowledgeable and has a wide variety of experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

A couple of years ago I went to Dr. Erb for upper and lower eyelid surgery. She meticulously examined my eyes and then explained to me the surgical procedure. I found her to be warm and down to earth which immediately reduced my anxiety. The results were amazing; I have a completely natural look so no one knows I had “work” done on my face. I know this means that she has a keen attention to detail. Since then, I go regularly for botox injections to mitigate the look of my “frownies”. She gi

I had a wonderful experience with Dr Erb. I saw her for laser for my face. She took lots of time to explain my options in detail to me. She didn't pressure me or try to up-sell me. The laser was a good experience, and I even got to pick the music to listen to during the laser. She took extra time and passes to go over the particularly bad spots on my face. Now my skin looks baby soft and smooth. Everyone notices that I look better. I would recommend Dr Erb to anyone.

Dr. Erb not only skillfully removed a growth from my eyelid and tested it to determine it was benign, but there is now no visible evidence at all that it was ever there. Her attention to my comfort was among the best of any doctor I have ever encountered. I cannot recommend Dr. Erb more highly. I would gladly return to her for care in the future.
