elan medical spa/ Dr Leff / horrible place to go

1 Center Valley, PA, United States Review updated:

I went there for a procedure called pro lipo and I had a lot of problems with Elan med spa when I was done. I will start with the most serious problem. I had the procedure done and went for my check ups like I was suposse to do and on the day of my 3rd check up I showed up and the whole place was empty, carpet and all. I called the number and got their answering service and they told me they had no idea where they were.I don't feel any professional dr should do that. I am pretty sure that they changed their name to botox by design and are in lehigh valley someplace. ok on to the rest of my complaints.The whole reason I got the pro lipo instead of regular lipo was becuase the scars were supossed to be smaller well they weren't very small and the whole time I kept telling Dr leff that the one incsion wasinfected. Dr leff told me it wasn't so I took his word. Well I went to my family doctor after awhile and he told me it was so he gave me some cream for it. After they took out the stiches that scar was very very big compared to the rest of them.During the whole recovery time they told me to use perixside on my stiches which my 11th grade son was telling me the whole time would make my scars worse (which again the reason for the pro lipo was because of smaller scars) and of course I believed the doctor instead, then after about a month in a half the doctor said to stop using it that he had just found out it made the scars worse. Now if my 11th grade son knew that then I feel a dr should have known from the start.Also I didn't expect to come out looking like a barbie, I had VERY realalistic expectations but after the procedure I did everything the dr had told me to do, I exercised and ate right and I had gained 20 pounds instead of loosing it. I did not loose ANY inches what so ever in any of the 3 spots I had it done. I look worse then I didn before I had this done. NOw I am more self concious about myself then I was before I had it done. If you plan to get anything done I would highly suggest you go to ANYONE other then dr Leff

    Too many quacks these days. Don't be so trusty. Too many medical students close to failing medical schools are called "doctors" too. These are the ones that will steal your money and do terrible things to you .
    The public need to be aware of this and push for more accountbility for the medical and dental profession.
    Doctors as wella s dentist lost their good repuations too many years ago.
