Eric seiger of skin and vein center (4 locations in mi) is a osteopathic dermatologist certified by "academy" and "college".
Seiger is not certified by the am. Bd. Of plastic surgery or the am. Bd. Of surgery. But does cosmetic surgery.
Seiger sewed down my earlobes during a 1 hour mini lift. I have asked seiger and skin and vein center to pay to repair my ear lobes and their response is to threaten me! What does this tell you about eric seiger and skin and vein center, they threaten patients instead of making a wrong right!

Skin and vein center has also let a nurse perform liposuction on a patient with no doctor present.

Eric seiger and the skin and vein center have had disciplinary action taken against them by the licensing boards of both michigan and florida.

    "lll3" is a fellow plastic surgeon who apparently is jealous of Dr. Seiger's success and is doing everything possible to try to destroy Dr. Seiger's reputation. How do I know this? Because "lll3, " this fellow plastic surgeon, is my former employer. He made it known throughout the office his intentions to smear Dr. Seiger.

    In my dealings with Dr. Seiger, not only has he been honest and caring, but he has also performed surgery on my wife without incident, and diagnosed me voluntarily with a serious condition--without me consulting him and without request for any payment--based on anecdotal facts he had overheard. His diagnosis was completely accurate and quite possibly prolonged my life.

    Dr. Seiger is indeed board-certified in many areas; you can check that out yourself.

    Though Dr. Seiger, according to his employees, knows the identity of this fellow plastic surgeon, he has never 'attacked' back. However, since "lll3" is my former boss, and since I do not condone this smear campaign, I would be honored to reveal his identity. Simply email me at [protected]@gmail.com

    The above complaint is not from some mentioned lll3 Dr. I AM A PATIENT, NOT A DOCTOR.

    This is my personal experience with The Skin and Vein Center and Dr. Eric Seiger.

    He is only certified by an "academy" and "college" this I have checked out and was told by Dr. Eric Seiger's office manager Steve Singer!!!

    He IS NOT CERTIFIED by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or by the American Board of Surgery!!!

    HE IS AN ACADEMY/COLLEGE CERTIFIED DERMATOLOGST/OSTEOPATHIC DR. ONLY!!!

    HE IS NOT A PLASTIC SURGEON!!! HIS INCOMPETENCY, MY EXPERIENCE PROVES THIS!!!

    It is obvious that jealousy is NOT THE PROBLEM!!! Dr. Seiger is the PROBLEM. HE SHOULD NOT BE DOING COSMETIC SURGERY. DR. SEIGER NEEDS TO STICK TO "SKIN AND VEIN" ISSUES ONLY, THAT HE IS CERTIFIED IN!!!

    I am the poster of the original lll3. I am a patient who experienced the above and was threatened by Dr. Seiger and Steve Singer the office manager at Skin and Vein Center for TELLING THE TRUTH!!!

    I was also sent a threatening letter from Eric Seiger's and Skin and Vein Centers attorney:
    W. Gregory Shanaberger, 5025 N. Central Ave. Ste. 129, Phoenix, AZ 85012, 480-773-2013, Email: [protected]@aol.com FOR TELLING THE TRUTH!!! CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF. SURGICAL TRUTH???? DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE/SHE IS TALKING ABOUT, I AM SPEAKING OF MY OWN EXPERIENCE WITH DR. ERIC S. SEIGER D.O.!!!

    Attorney Shanaberger contacted me by telephone to "settle" and stop my spreading this TRUTH and Shanaberger also emailed me regarding this "settlement" on March 7, 2010, and TRUTH EXPERIENCE AGAIN, TYPICAL OF ERIC S. SEIGER AND THE SKIN AND VEIN CENTER, I'VE YET TO HEAR ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THE "SETTLEMENT".

    BEST ADVICE TO ANYONE CONSIDERING COSMETIC SURGERY AVOID SKIN AND VEIN CENTER AND ERIC S. SEIGER D.O.

    Readers,

    I, the patient, can swear to the truth on a stack of Bibles and under oath in a court room, Surgicaltruth CANNOT!

    I, the patient, also have copies of letters from Eric S. Seiger/Skin and Vein Centers manager Steve Singer as proof, as well as attorney Shanaberger's letters, and email.

    See my, the patient, picture below of Dr. Eric S. Seiger's competence. He sewed down my earlobes. His office and website (before recently changed, as of 2009), stated he was a "certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon" he is not certified in cosmetic surgery, I trusted this was true and look where it got me (see picture). Seiger isn't even a M.D., he is an Osteopath dr. only doing cosmetic surgery.

    Readers,

    Another way to check the proof of lll3 comments above is to contact Dr. Eric S. Seiger's PAID for memberships that are listed as credentials on the bottom of Skin and Vein Centers web site and letterheads. Check the Better Business Bureau, the State Licensing Board of MI Allegation Section 517-373-9196. The State of MI Consumer Protection Division 877-765-8388, the State of Florida Licensing.
    Dr. Seiger pleaded guilty to unlawfully importing goods into the U.S., introducing a misbranded medical device into commerce.

    Check for complaints at: D.O. Associations, not M.D. Associations:
    American Osteopathic Assoc.(AAOA) and (AOA) 800-621-1773
    American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery(AACS) NOT RECOGNIZED PER STEVE SINGER MGR. OF SKIN AND VEIN CENTER
    American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) For D.O.'S NOT M.D.'S
    International Society of Dermatology (paid for membership)
    American College of Phlebology VEINS
    MI Osteopathic Assoc. (MOA)

    Ladies and gentlemen, I will simply say that if you are in any way concerned about any of the 'allegations' set forth on this page, simply email me and I will put your mind to rest with some simple information, which you can verify yourself.

    Best to all.

    Readers,

    I don't know why the picture did not download, but go to pissedconsumer.com, enter Skin and Vein Center and Eric Seiger, see picture and read reviews of other very unsatisfied patients of Dr. Seiger and Skin and Vein Center.

    Look up Dr. websites and see what is said by other patients of Dr. Eric Seiger and Skin and Vein Center.

    Do your research before you let a osteopathic/dermatologist touch you for anything other than "skin" and "veins".

    P.S. I think "Michael" and "surgicaltruth" above must be Eric Seiger.
    The only way to find out the "truth" is to check out "legitimate" associations . What could Michael and surgicaltruth know about having had a procedure done by Dr. Eric Seiger and my personal experience with Eric Seiger and Skin and Vein Center?????
    Yeah, email "Michael"??? he'll know!!! If he is Seiger, he'll tell you what????

    What else I didn't mention here is that another doctor at Skin and Vein Center did liposuction that needed a "touch up" that was done by a Nurse? or M.A., no doctor was in the room, in the building???? Very Dangerous, puts patients life in DANGER!

    FROM lll3, FOR YOUR INFORMATION, to those who think I need to get a life:

    I AM RIGHT THIS MINUTE RECOVERING FROM SURGERY TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE AND INCOMPETENCE THAT DR. ERIC S. SEIGER OF THE SKIN AND VEIN CENTER DID!

    I got a recommendation for a "Certified American Board of Plastic Surgery" and "Certified American Board of General Surgery" Dr. John M. Rowley, 15810 S. 45th St. Suite 140, Phoenix, AZ 85048, 480-759-3001 from my M.D. O.B. GYN.

    I now live in AZ. I asked Dr. Eric S. Seiger to pay to fix his incompetence. He has refused and has THREATENED me with letters from his manager Steve Singer and his attorney
    Shanaberger. I have nothing to worry about when they THREATEN ME WITH A LAWSUIT, I AM TELLING THE TRUTH. Their attorney Shanaberger contacted me about a settlement on March 7, but I never heard from Eric S. Seiger and Skin and Vein Center again. This has cost me several thousands of dollars (dr. only, not to mention my life inconvenience and costs). AND PAIN!

    I am writing because of how surprised I am at these critical comments. My husband and I both went to Dr. Seiger. The first thing we noticed was how much time he took talking to us, wanting to understand why we wanted the surgeries. He even cried with me when I cried as I was telling him something I kept deep inside of me.

    My husband's surgery went great. I wasn't completely satisfied with my result, so I told him. And Dr. Seiger was very understanding. He suggested options to me, and he genuinely wanted me to be happy. The adjustment was perfect, and I am thrilled with the results!

    I was motivated to write by this posting here, because I really care about Dr. Seiger, and what the poster said bothered me. He's one of those rare people you don't find much on this earth. I can say simply this: go meet him and once you do, you decide for yourself. Because I believe meeting him is all you will need to know what kind of person he is. Best of luck to you in whatever procedure you are considering. Bye!

    AGAIN check his credentials! Seiger has no cosmetic surgery training whatsoever. Any "doctor" can perform cosmetic surgery with 1 hour or less of cosmetic surgery training.
    REAL, CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEONS BY THE AMERICAN BOARD OF PLASTIC SURGERY HAVE YEARS AND YEARS OF TRAINING. REAL
    plastic surgeons liken having cosmetic surgery done by a dermatologist to having a DENTIST perform cosmetic surgery on you. HEY, IT'S YOUR FACE OR WHATEVER.

    This place is a rip off for sure!! I went in for spider veins and was told that my treatment would be minimal since they were not that bad. Well, ended up going for three sessions, spending well over $400 to get rid of no so bad spider veins. The first two times, it was a very young girl performing the injections, the last time, an elder lady performed them. I believe the first two sessions don't do much at all, except need you to come back for the third. I still have spider veins and will not be returning to this place again!!! Would not recommend them for anything...

    I too was a patient of Dr. Eric Seiger. I went in a few years ago for a cyst on my chin.m By the 2nd visit he cut me open and the 3rd visit, he sanded my chin. Now today i have a huge and horrible scar on my face, that i am truely embarrassed about. Dr. Seiger was told that he did not get the cyst, so he attempted to pokes holes in my chin several time with what looked like a mini cookie cutter. Today, i still have problems and continue to be self conscious about this horrible looking scar plua the cyst still remains. I WANT JUSTICE...

    Dr. Sieger promised me that he could get rid of lip lines for me. He put numbing cream on and took a drywall sander and proceeded to sand my face mostly under my nose, where I have no lines. It took me over 2 weeks of wearing vasaline and staying out of the public eye only to find out it did not get rid of the lines at all. Then he said well I can fix that...go to Fenton AND I'll do a laser. I went to Fenton and got the laser and if anything looked worse after another 2 weeks out of commission. I went back again and told him I spent $1, 000 and did not get any results and as we were talking there was a rumble in the hallway with a woman screaming "No! Please! Dr. Sieger ! He then rolled up on his little stool with injection in hand and put restalyn in my lip. From the start I told him I didn' t like or want restalyne and wanted something more permanent. I could not believe how I looked! Above my lips were ridges and ripples. My mother, sister and many friends asked me what the hell happened? I was so depressed and embarrassed and angry. I told Kim I was very dissatisfied and wanted my money back as I didn't get what was promised. He ended up agreeing with me that it didn't look good and he could fix it..and once again injected restalyne in my lip saying that was the only way to do it.
    .Now I have more lip lines than when I started. He made me look worse and instead of getting my money back he said he could put an implant in and only charge me $700. instead of the normal price of $1500. I will never let this loony tune touch me again.. This man has no business having a practice. He's decietul, conniving and lies about what he can do for you
    he just keeps saying he'll fix each mistake while making more money off you.and making you look worse each time. He acts charming and concerned when all he's interested in is making money for himself at the expense of your FACE! I don't know how he
    can still be out there screwing people up. I paid $1000. to have lip lines made worse and I want my money back so I can have a real plastic surgeon fix what he did.

    I also had a bad experience with Eric S. Seiger. Have you had any luck getting your money back? I did not. I feel for you. Eric S. Seiger is a self professed "reknown" cosmetic surgeon with no training (check his training for yourself). I have been trying to warn other innocent people to avoid this Eric S. Seiger, but Seiger and his office personnel make me, the wronged patient, out as the bad guy?????
    That alone would warn me against Dr. Eric S. Seiger. He won't even admit to his incompetence, instead bad mouths the ruined by him patient.

    Eric S. Seiger and his Skin and Vein Centers have a tendency to bad mouth the innocent trusting patients that his incompetence has made into unsatisfied patients.

    I, like you other people are very disappointed with Dr.Eric S Seiger. I was a patient of his up until today I Actually just left his office an hour n a half ago and he wants $600.00 more for filler injections if my face had been lifted properly I shouldnt need anymore procedures i told him i wasnt happy with the fine lines and wrinkles around my mouth he suggested a sanding for $1200.00 but out of the kindness of his heart was only going to charge me $300.00 SOUNDS GREAT RIGHT LADIES!!! The only catch was I had to bring the money in an envelope in cash to the procedure room but when someone is giving you a $900.00 discount you dont ask questions it crossed my mind why they asked me to do that and not take it to the front desk and get a receipt like i always had before i was so overwhelmed by the discount that i never questioned it MY MOUTH LOOKS WORSE THEN WHEN I STARTED!!! to make a long story short not much has changed but im over $4000.00 in the whole so i wont go back im going to try asking for some of my money back but in the mean time im looking for a real cosmetic surgeon.

    I feel bad for the person that wrote above complaint. I know, I have been there. I never got any money back!
    I cannot say enough "ERIC S. SEIGER IS NOT A BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON" he is a D.O. dermatologist ONLY!
    Eric S. Seiger has absolutely ZERO PLASTIC SURGERY TRAINING OR CERTIFICATION.
    It is the same thing as having a DENTIST do your cosmetic surgery!!!
    His prices are cheaper than a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon I WONDER WHY????

    I have been going to Dr. Seiger now for almost 8 years and NEVER and I mean NEVER have I had one complaint. Not only did he change my life; but the life of my daughter who decided to be a dermatologist because of him! He and his staff are the MOST professional, honest, kind people there are there! YOU just don't meet people like them in business today and I could never think of going anywhere else. Let me start by saying that I had liposuction done in the Fenton office by a DR not a nurse. The nurse help to prep me but a DR gave the procedure! I LOVED my results!! I have go every 2 months for Botox and fillers and have never felt better about me or the way I look. I have had laser treatments for skin resurfacing, hair removal as well as micro-derma abrasion and again - LOVE my skin. In fact I am 47 and I am told constantly I don't look 35 and I credit Dr. Seiger and his amazing staff!! They are like a family there and to their patients - each and every one of us is important - they are incredible and I appreciate everything Dr. Seiger has done to help me be the best I can be. I am truly surprised to see all of these statements when I know they are not the truth??? I can say this; however, I believe in the law of attraction and karma and if you are giving out UGLY - you get UGLY!! Thank you Dr. Seiger for helping me and my family over the last 7 years!! We are blessed because of you and your team!!

    Dr seiger, is a great doctor I have been battling acne scars for sometime now. He did fillers for my scars and nose, I had a mild dorsal hump. He also recommended that I start doing micropen which is little needles to stimulate collagen. So far its been a great experience for me. He also lasered extra skin I had on my nose, didn't charge me for that. We works with you to figure out what procedure works best for you.
