I have been a patient of Dr. Swengel since he was treating at Santa Teresa Kaiser, I may have been 8yrs old -about 40yrs ago. He was the ONLY Dr of the many I had seen that was able to get my Chronic Psoriasis under control. Once he left Kaiser I was bounced around to multiple Dr's with severe flair ups that I could barely walk or move limbs-so painful. My husband decided to get private Ins and we made the BEST decision. I have been on Stellara with GREAT results, my skin...

Dr. Swengel and his team are remarkable. I've been coming to the office for a little over three or so years and have never had a bad experience. And by the way, I look fabulous.

Always such a great experience here. The staff is so sweet and Dr Swengel always makes you feel like you're his only patient. I have bought packages and have come regularly for my little gummy smile botox - the cheapest and most valuable part of my skin routine. 2 pinches and my gums aren't visible when I smile for 6+ months!! It makes me feel so much more confident and is beyond quick and easy. Thank you Refined and Dr Swengel!! <3

I have been coming for many years and keep coming back because Dr. Swengel and staff are caring and take the time I need to feel comfortable. They listen to my concerns and share their ideas with me and whether I do them or not I always become informed on treatments that would be of interest to me. Thanks for a simple and pleasurable experience!

I came in for a series of laser treatments with Dr.Swengel. A couple names to point out are Roxy and Luis. They both are so friendly and nice when it came to all the questions I had. Dr.Swengel really took the time to explain which treatments would be the best for my skin type and concerns. I highly recommend this office for all Dermatology issues. I love refined dermatology!

Dr Swengel and staff go above and beyond! I started coming to him for dermatology first. I commute from Santa Cruz to see him. Besides them having a flexable schedule to work with my busy work schedule, they got me in asap. I had a mole that looked suspicious and my old derm said they could see me in 8 weeks. Ive heard about Dr S for a few years and finally made the call.Needless to say Ive been a patient for 3 years now, and I have never been happier with a Dr's office ever!

Dr. Swengel was able to help me after I got a problem from a different clinic. His skill with assessing problems and treatments and injections is unsurpassed. He is also comforting and personable so that the process is not stressful. I highly recommend him.

Awesome staff! Beautiful office and Excellent Doctor. I have been to many Dermatologists over the last 15 years but Refined Dermatology is by far the best whether its for medical or cosmetic procedures. I will never go elsewhere. I originally came for tattoo removal and have received the best results after just one treatment here then my 11 treatments elsewhere. I will continue as a patient as long as he's here.
