New Orleans, LA |
I went to Dr Jochen'soffice for consultation , paid $100.00 to speak to the doctor. I never met the Dr Jochen, had an office manger go over all the details I wanted. The office manger gave me the costs and that was it for $100.00 Never saw the doctor, usually a consultation that you pay you get to meet the doctor and discuss what your thinking of doing. Very disappointed.
Cathedral City, CA |
Be prepared to wait and wait and wait. Then when you do get in it's all rushed. No apologies for making you wait either.

Dr. Jochen exceeded my exceptions! His staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. Wonderful first experience at Contour Dermatology.
in Desert Hot Springs, CA |
Showed up for my appointment today and was told they no longer took my insurance, as of two MONTHS ago. Why didn't someone tell me this when I made my appointment? I traveled a long way to make this appointment; so this is unacceptable by any reasonable measure. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Dr. Jochen says...

Dr. Timothy Jochen founded Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center and the specialized Laser Center at Contour Dermatology in 2001 with the mission of helping people maintain a vibrant appearance and feel great about their skin. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and is trained in the latest techniques in dermatology, cosmetic surgery and hair restoration/transplantation.

Dr. Jochen specializes in Mohs Surgery for skin cancer removal, facial rejuvenation including cosmetic laser technology, Botox® and facial fillers, soft tissue augmentation, leg and facial vein treatment, tumescent liposuction and hair restoration/transplants.

He is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and he has been named "Teacher of the Year" several times.

Dr. Jochen also regularly gives lectures about medical and cosmetic dermatology locally, nationally and internationally.

Dermatological services provided at Dr. Jochen's Contour Dermatology include Botox injections, Restylane, hair treatment and hair transplants, procedures for wrinkles and droopy eyes and treatments for carcinoma and other skin cancers. Contour Dermatology is located in Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage in Riverside County, CA, and Santa Monica in Los Angeles County, CA. They also serve the communities of La Quinta, Palm Desert and Indian Wells.

Dr. Jochen loves to travel and has almost completed his bucket list of exploring every continent. Compared to everywhere he's traveled to, his home in the Desert is his favorite place to be. He loves physical activity and hikes or goes skiing as often as he can. Dr. Jochen loves adventure, art, architecture, and his home in the Coachella Valley where he donates to many organizations and tries to stay involved in the community, but he loves nothing more than his family and spending time with his daughter, Ashley.
