This is for any of you in the Tampa Florida area who are considering Dr. Daniel Stein at the Stein Medical Institute for Liposuction, Vaser, or any other procedure. I will now summarize my entire experience, from my first consultation until this last visit on December 01, where Dr. Stein was condescending and insulting, leaving me in tears as I walked out of the office once again.

My first procedure was in May 2006. I had a brief meeting with Dr. Stein where he pointed out the trouble areas that would be “vasered” and assured me excellent results. I had my procedure with a doctor the next day who was unprofessional and in subsequent weeks actually called my house to see if I was interested in purchasing a travel package or attending a seminar. Putting aside her telemarketing skills, this procedure yielded negative results along with a very hard, protruding lump above my belly-button that caused additional severe pain and swelling for several months.

I was told to come into the office three times a week to have Wellbox treatments, and despite this only leading to more pain and swelling, I continued with the treatments under Dr. Stein’s advice. Keep in mind I live 45 miles away. Every time I walk into the office I feel as though I am entering a Wellbox sales convention. After almost three months of painful Wellbox treatments, Dr. Stein agreed that the lump was not getting better and agreed to do a revision on the area while working on my flanks, which is a procedure I had scheduled for late August.

I have been called several wrong names, every nurse is given the wrong chart, and my photos have even been found in the wrong chart. This is unacceptable – this is private information and I cannot be reassured that my personal info or photos have not been seen by eyes other than Dr. Stein or the nurses. I was also reprimanded by one of the nurses because she saw me looking through my own medical records and photos. She snapped “excuse me” and snatched it out of my hand. This is my information and I have a right to look at it.

My follow-up visit on 12/01 was the last straw for me. I was placed with Dr. Bruemmer, who called me by another patient’s name, had the wrong folder, and wasn’t even up to date on what I had done. I had to guide her through my notes and photos and every question I asked her yielded an “I don’t know” answer.

After standing in the hallway listening to Dr. Stein make jokes and talk about personal things for about 15 minutes, I received a condescending attitude from Dr. Stein and he would not let me explain what the problems were without interrupting me, providing me with elementary metaphors, and raising his voice at me. Dr. Stein acted like he was doing me a favor by sitting with me for three minutes, saying that he was taking the time out to talk to me when he didn’t have to. May I also add that Dr. Stein called me by the wrong name during this conversation?

Dr. Stein further insulted me by suggesting that perhaps I am just not happy with the procedure because of some other issues I might be dealing with. Dr. Stein is not a psychiatrist this is out of his boundaries! Dr. Stein also said that (paraphrased) “I don’t hear these complaints from any other patients. Everyone else is satisfied, if I heard more of these complaints I would listen, but I don’t.” So because other patients are happy, it doesn’t matter if I am? My money is as good as theirs. He does not care about his patients whatsoever.

    It should be noted that commenter POGO 1971 is either concealing something or outright lying, because in the state of Florida there are stringent eligibility requirements involved in obtaining or even viewing a death certificate that lists the cause of death- notably, you have to be a relative of the deceased or named in the deceased's will.

    I too feel a need to chime in, and respond to some of these alligations towards Dr. stein as he is no longer here to defend himself. I have had numerous procedures done both surgical and non-surgical and I have had nothing but stellar results. Further more, I have sent my partner there for vaser liposculpture with amazing results, which have been posted on his web site (not stolen from his teacher). My gynocamastia surgery is posted on his web site as well as my mothers "Stein Lift" I also sent a friend in who has been obese his entire life and Stein performed the removal of excess skin around his abdomen and liposculpture as well and he has been very pleased with the out come and his results were also posted. surgurey is never an exact science and everyone responds to it differently. I should know I have been treated for a ruptured bicep with "one of the best" at the Florida Orthopedic institute and 3 weeks later I woke up with my sling still on and the muscle was sitting down in my elbow again. I had ruptured it in my sleep. I didnt blame the Dr. and I went for a second opinion and was told although it is rare it happens. the same thing can be said of cosmetic surgery, there are always risks, you should know that going in, which you would if you read your disclaimer that you had to sign before going under the knife. Dr. Stein was a kind and generous man who helped more people than most people ever will. He treated my family and friends as his own and i will be forever greatful and so will countless others.

    I know the title of this site is "complaints board" but I feel the need to offer another perspective. My guess is that Dr. Stein has many satisfied customers but that they are just much less likely to be vocal online. For the record, I had a procedure with him one month ago and am satisfied with the results. Also, I don't know about his staff before but his current staff was extremely professional and kind to me.

    It was with great sadness that I read a letter that I received today regarding Dr. Stein's death. In my experience, he was very knowledgeable and courteous. He had a friendly smile on his face and I would have recommended him to friends.
    May you rest in peace Dr. Stein.

    The commenter Cynthia McK immediately above has posted a vicious and slanderous comment. What kind of person does that? Obviously someone in need of a lot of help.

    Sadly Dr. Dan Stein has passed away and I took the time to look at a copy of his Death Certificate over at Pinellas County.

    For the record, Myocardial Infarction is listed as the cause. That's a heart attack, look it up.

    Whether you liked the man or not, he is certainly entitled to the dignity and respect that you would want shown to you upon your passing.

    Life is a huge circle and Karma is very real. The vicious and hurtful things you do and say will come back to you with interest paid.

    Cyntia McK, your day is coming.

    Rest is Peace Dr. Dan.

    Dr. Stein committed suicide over the weekend of April 9, 2011. Not yet made public, keeping it on the down low until his staff figures out what to do with his touch ups and follow ups.

    Also, the photos on his web site are bogus. Stolen from the guy who trained him on the lipo machine in Colorado.

    Dr. Stein WAS an ob/gyn, DO NOT EVER compare his to a plastic surgeon who has 5 additional years of training beyond an ob/gyn.

    I am a satisfied male patient of Dr. Dan Stein. I have had three satisfactory procedures with the first one done in March of 2008, the second in September of 2009 and the third in March of 2010. I am a well informed professional who works in the medical field. As such I took the time to research my condition and determine what I wanted to accomplish. I carefully considered the physical, emotional and psychological components and then after interviewing several others, selected Dr Stein as the caregiver I wanted to work with.

    There is no question that every patient is totally unique and a satisfactory outcome cannot be predicted because it is dependent on things outside the control of the Doctor. Dr. Stein has an extensive multi-page checklist that explains this as well as a number of other vital considerations that every patient receives and acknowledges before a procedure will be done. As a result the complaints about experiences within the Stein Institute are not accurate as stated herein.

    I must emphasize that it is your responsibility to be a well informed patient and that you must thoroughly research the procedure you want to have done and you must carefully consider the amount of work that you will have to put into the aftercare to guide your body through the healing process. I in fact did this research in advance and was prepared to actively participate in the process. My contribution included getting my body as ready as possible before my procedures through diet, lifestyle and exercise; followed by clearly expressing my needs, requirements and expectations to Dr. Stein and his staff before the day of the procedures, and then carefully reviewing everything once again immediately before each procedure.

    By being prepared I entered into each procedure in the proper frame of mind and with adequate allowances made for my aftercare including time and support. It took approximately 3 months for each of my procedures to reach an approximation of the final result. At 1 year after each procedure I can say a final result was clearly achieved, and as a result you can see how my spacing of the procedures builds one upon another.

    Others on this post have mentioned Dr. Bruemmer and she did pre-op and aftercare follow up on me. It was quite clear to me that Dr. Bruemmer had some issues probably related to her age but for me they were completely manageable and I found her to be extremely interesting. I was able to work with her successfully for the tasks she performed. But, under no circumstances, would I allow anyone other than Dr. Dan to actually work on me.

    As a patient you not only have the responsibility to be well informed you also have the right to be assertive and to insist that your chosen caregiver be the one who actually performs in the surgical suite. The main complainant in this post, a Jane Price, says she met with Dr. Stein and then had the procedure done by a doctor the next day. Now, framing that statement with the cold gaze of logic does it sound like this patient did her research? Does it sound like she went into the procedure prepared for aftercare. She doesn't say Dr. Stein did the work. She only says "A Doctor". Are you serious? Would you let someone work on you that you cannot even name? Frankly I lost patience with her by the time I got done reading her complaint, so it’s a good thing I’m not her Doctor.

    Moving on. EXTENZE. Again, it is important to be a well informed patient and this extends to anyone interested in self-medicating with supplements. The entire arena of supplements that are not actually FDA approved is caveat emptor and you really need a good background in chemistry, biology and medicine to grasp what is involved. After reviewing the ingredients in Extenze I can attest to the fact that it will improve blood flow in your member. As a result you will be essentially semi-hard as long as you take it. It also has a stimulant which is thought to be an aphrodisiac. Your expectations should probably go like this. If you reached adulthood with a 5inch penis and you take Extenze it might measure 6inches while you are on it because of the increased blood flow. If you start with 5inches and expect to grow an 8inch penis using Extenze then your expectations are unrealistic. I tried it and verified the chemistry. What I have stated herein is accurate.

    Doctor Qualifications. Many of the commenters on this post don’t get the OB-GYN background. Here it is in a nutshell. OB-GYN is the most litigious practice in medicine and thousands of wonderful doctors have left the specialty. Every OB-GYN does a form of vaginal and abdominal surgery and they have to be excellent at it. Knowing this, when I saw that Doctor Stein had trained originally as an OB-GYN and had now developed a new specialty I completely understood. Mind you, I’m a guy!

    So here it is in a nutshell. This is cosmetic surgery people. The outcome is as much dependent on you as it is on the Doctor. If you walk in the door on Monday and say I want this done, and it’s done on a Tuesday you probably have an expectation that on Wednesday you will be on the beach. Well that’s completely crap and it’s not his fault it’s yours. Someone said he’s not a psychiatrist. Well that’s correct but sometimes he probably wishes he had the ability to have his prospective patients screened by one. He cannot cure your underlying manic-depressive issues and he cannot cure the mental component of your underlying poor body image. He can only help you make the cosmetic adjustments that you determine you want done, and in my case he did an excellent job (3 times).

    I have been a patient of Dr. Stein for a few years. I have found him to be very nice, knowledgeable and talented in his practice, and I've had no problems with his services, HOWEVER, over the last year, I have gotten the instinctive notion that something is not all up to par with him and his practices. I have experienced the frequent changing of seemingly very important staff, have seen the highly questionable enlargement commercials, (I was embarrassed to be a client after I saw those) but the last straw for me, is his support of and endorsement also of the other doctor in his practice, Dr. Bremmer. She knows nothing about anything at all, and I had a very bad experience with her, and I have not recovered from how she injected botiox in my forehead almost 10 months ago. I have a permanent 1/8 inch dent in my skin, I knew something went wrong when the pain was excruciating while she was injecting me, and botox injections don't hurt in my case. They feel like a little skin ###, but with her, I had to tell her to STOP! I don't know what the hell she was doing, and apparently she didn't know either! Her attitude about it all was quite aloof to boot! All of these things clued me in to the fact that something is not quite right with him and his entire practice, and I will never go back there.

    DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR. He lied to me and several other women. One woman was injured and ended up in the hospital, another was attacked by a male worker (police were called out), and I was disfigured. He lied to me and others. He claimed he was double board certified in cosmetic surgery even doing cosmetic surgery on the "elite" of Beverly Hills and New York. He assured me I would look so good that he wanted me on his website as a before and after photo. After the Vaser procedure, I noticed problems and I went to him for help. He did an examination of me and freaked out. He had a panic look on his face, slammed my file shut refusing to let me see my photos and stormed out of the examining room yelling crazy comments as he went down the hallway. The office manager came in and promised to get my file and all of the paperwork I had requested. She never did. What I received after months of requests was a file with missing information. Missing items like the photos of where I was marked up and, the same photos that I signed an agreement to have Vaser on, as well as after photos I took of the mistakes he made. Missing photos of my face and neck before and after of my now scarred up face and neck due to Marina practicing dermatology and using an IPL machine that she is not licensed to use. I did however get someone else's photos sent to me - she had tattoos and I don't. Some of my personal photos and my personal information were sent to someone else's home in another town. Also to note, Dr. Nancy Bruemmer is his incompetent side kick who does the prescription writing for Stein and Marina. She has no clue of what she is doing. Dr. Bruemmer was and still is well aware of what is going on at that facility. She took photos of mistakes made on me but has no clue about them now. I was referred to Marina Greenwood as a dermatologist by Dr. Stein. She too claimed to be a dermatologist. I received treatment from her under the assumption she was a dermatologist. I found out she was not when my face and neck became scarred and I went to the office manager for help. She is not licensed to use the IPL machine she uses nor prescribe drugs for people. She is practicing medicine and there are 2 doctors here letting her do it. The cost to take a medical malpractice case to court is through the roof so most attorneys will not take these types of cases. Patients are just letting this guy walk because they feel they have no choice. He keeps doing it because so far, he can. IF YOU HAVE HAD ANY OF THESE SIMILAR EXPERIENCES WITH STEIN'S FACILITY, PLEASE EMAIL ME. ALSO, IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIM PRACTICING IN ALABAMA, NEW YORK, CALIFORNIA, OR COLORADO, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. HE WAS IN THESE PLACES FOR A WHILE AND DID NOT SEEM TO REPORT BEING IN SOME OF THE LOCATIONS ON HIS INFORMATION GIVEN TO THE STATE.

    I encourage all readers in Florida who are thinking about having ANY procedure performed to first verify their prospective physician's license to practice, board certifications they may hold along with any prior/pending legal issues. This can be easily done through the State of Florida website (myflorida.com).

    http://ww2.doh.state.fl.us/IRM00PRAES/PRASLIST.ASP

    As for Dr. Daniel S. Stein, the above website shows that his residency was in OB/GYN NOT in plastic surgery, nor is he listed as being "Board Certified" in Plastic Surgery. In addition, there are several listed criminal offenses (3), most of which he has had "ajudication withheld, "(2) as Hillsborough County has several "intervention" programs that allow participants to complete community service in conjunction with supervision to avoid trials and/or convictions. Despite these programs, the physician is still required to disclose this information to the State Medical Board. Although this does not speak to their "professional abilities, " it does give you information about who you are dealing with.

    Anyone with internet access and a slight bit of volition should be able to make more informed decisions about obtaining quality medical care.

    Just the record, even though the medical records are about you and you do have a right to read them, you are still not allowed to simply walk out and start reading the charts. Under certain circumstances, the physician can disallow someone from reading there records. While that may not (and probably didn't) apply to you, the nurse was still right to prohibit you from reading the chart without an okay from the doctor and/or medical records department.
    And while the evidence against this particular physician is fairly obvious, his poor bedside manner shouldn't be used as evidence of his lack of medical skills because they are too seperate issues. I've known many good physicians who were, for lack of a better word, dicks.

    You should have go to a different physician, even after the procedure was performed. Buyer beware, my friend.

    Sidenote: OB/GYN's aren't really baby docs. Thats a pediatrician or neonatologist.

    better yet, look at those "random people on the street" and go to any porn shop in the U.S.A. They are all old pornstars..ALL OF THEM..maybe this product did work for them, or maybe their carreers have hit the gutter and they needed a fix, hence the commercial. You people are too political, 3500.00 could easily buy a street thug to take out his "certain part of the male body", I'd take that route instead of vaser, would probably get more enjoyment from it as well.

    He's a modern day quack. Unfortunately he is a licensed medical doctor with the state of Florida. Most states you can search by name for virtually any professional license. He has been disciplined (not surprised) by FL though I am surprised it's only been once. You can read the information on his license and the discipline case below. He's been disciplined by the New York State Board of Professional Medical Conduct, Fine and Reprimand (1/2008).

    You can also read his profile information with the state that shows he received his MD from Wayne State University. His residency was in OB/GYN so he's a baby doc operating as a cosmetic surgeon. Legal but risky. Anyone with a shingle can claim to be a cosmetic surgeon. He does not have staff privileges at any hospital. His criminal charges include Domestic Violence (1996, CO), DUI (1998, FL) and Marijuana Possession (1998, FL).

    Hey, this is not supposed to be funny I know, But I too came here to look up this guy after seeing endless commercials for the extenze product.

    If You listen to ho wthey word things you will get it.
    1. they never say Penis.
    2. they do say "it Got bigger" <-- Of Corse it got bigger! Mine get's bigger on a regular basis! LOL I can just think about Sex and poof! It Got bigger! Duuu!
    3. when Dr Stien is actually talking he says "I personally have found" <-- on Himself. he's making a remark about himself and in no way implicates that the product will work for anyone.
    4. This Dr Stein Guy seems about as geniune as a a bag of Plastic CoCo Nuts. How anyone would let this guy Cut on them, Poke Needles in them, or point lasars them is beyond me.

    5. does it not give you a clue that this guy is only interested in Gimmick type get rich schemes? he's working with USED UP PORN STARS to make a buck on Infomercials for gods sakes.

    People! If your sick go to a Real doctor, if Your Ugly find some one who likes ugly people to love you. not everyone is perfect forever. thats how it goes. do not kill yourself and make these loosers rich. it will not make you happy.

    I saw the Extenze commercial on TV as well. Actually, I've probably seen it 15+ and it's annoying as hell. I already know, and I've researched that penis enlargement by pill is completely impossible. Anyway, I've already determined that everybody on that commercial is stupid, illogical and paid off by the manufacturers and the pharmacy industries so I figured, "well, let's research this medical institute and see what it's about."

    I had a pretty cynical approach to it, because if a "doctor" says it works on that "certain part", something is not right. Well anyway, I saw that the first website was the institute website...




    ...and the following two were from the Complaints Board. Needless to say, I couldn't help but laugh out loud. Not at your problems of course, but at the fact that my cynical approach was basically justified and expected.

    Anyway, why don't you people sue? Ever heard of malpractice?

    It's useful that this quack is selling dick pills because it should warn anyone with a half-brain to avoid him. But I'm afraid that Mencken was right: God intends for the botched to ascend to heaven. Most lipo is ###, but it is a magnet for suckers. In a sense, the guys who want larger dicks and the women who want lipo are a great match.

    After just seeing this commercial for "Extenze" on TV for the millionth time (no joke) and I decided to look up this Dr. Stein and his medical institute. Hey, my laptop is on my sofa so I didn't even have to get up to check out this suspected King of Quack. No disrespect to ducks. Well what do you know, my suspicions were correct AND his website sucks. Does anyone really believe this stuff works, or is this company and others like it just a front for something? How do they all stay in business, have Nascar race teams...etc? Race car teams are expensive. Even a sponsorship is expensive. Oh yeah, so are commercials. Enough about that.

    But what confuses and astounds me way more than this, is fake outrage. Perfect example is the poster named Ken. Angel, another poster said "There's a never-ending stream of Jew doctors from New York fleeing to Florida to practice their quackery after being disgraced elsewhere." To which Ken replied "I didn't think anyone could ever stoop lower than the dick doc. I was wrong." What offended you, Ken? The doctor ripping people off or the poster (Angel) calling it like they see it? What exactly about Angels post made you think that no one could go lower than the dick doc. Perhaps Angel works in the medical field or is an informed individual and knows what they said to be true. Who are you to say they are stooping lower than the dick doc? If I were to say that Catholic pedophile priests are being moved around and protected by the church (which is a fact) would THAT offend you? Just remember, if you can't disprove what is being stated, then you're either ill-informed or wrong. I believe with you, it's the latter.

    Ken, if this offended you because you're a Jew, then get over yourself, religious suffering in 21st century America is just plain silly and laughable.

    If you're not a Jew, then you just suffer from a severe case of fake outrage. There are far worse things being said in the world and on this board. Hey, just when you thought someone couldn't stoop lower than the dick doc, someone on this board did...then, someone stooped lower than them! Yep, yours truly.

    As for Dr. Stein, if he can make money off of penis obsessed idiots, more power to him... Just think of it as a form of financial passive eugenics. Maybe if they spend all their money on penis enhancement pills it will leave them less money to spend on gas and clog up the freeway fast lane in their SUV's while on their cell phones constantly talking to their wives/girlfriends to make sure they're not cheating on them with some well endowed dude. Life is simple if you have a big penis.

    When are they gonna come out with extenze for the other male body part, the brain?

    Ever notice the bimbo in the placebo commercial that blinks too much? I can even see her blinking by my peripheral vision when not even looking directly at the TV.
    And I want everyone to notice that on the extenze website, they ask for your credit card information on an INSECURE PAGE!! Unbelievable in the day and age of identity theft and other issues. This quack will try to grab your bucks any way he possible can at every opportunity! And you idiots down there in Florida allow him to use a scalpel on you?

    "Dr. Stein" is just another in a long line of quacks that have disgraced the medical profession since the beginning of time. How anyone could allow such a quack to actually use a knife on them after seeing his penis enlarger placebo commercials, complete with fake testimonials, is beyond comprehension. It shows just how gullible humans continue to be in our continuing evolution.

    HE's still a schmuck, but it says he went to Wayne State University. He has a women's health clinic.

    The reason they never actually say "penis" in the Extenze commercials is for "plausible deniability" when they get complaints or get sued. They are purposefully and explicitly avoiding saying "penis" because these pills don't do anything. As Rick stated, they just give you dangerously high blood pressure.

    If you're not braindead you can pretty much figure this out within the first few minutes of watching these unbelievably fraudulent commercials. They never say "penis" because then they would be making a specific medical claim, and because their product doesn't work and they know it doesn't work they use this obfuscation to avoid lawsuits. Because of the Bush administration and the lax oversight of these sorts of quasi-medical claims by the FDA, they can avoid getting busted. Also, most people trying to use these pills to get a bigger penis will likely avoid suing because they wouldn't want to embarass themselves by going to court to explain that they wanted their penis to be bigger but the pills didn't work and the commercial lied. It will take a change of administration and a wholesale cleanout of the FDA to get these products regulated and force the manufacturers to back up their claims with real studies that are based on scientific fact and have been peer reviewed. Once that happens you won't see these idiotic infomercials any more because there is no such thing as a penis enlargment pill.

    Enzyte already got sued over their snake oil. I'm surprised Extenze is still being advertised and this Dr. Stein ### isn't in prison already.

    You can't get thinner with a pill (unless it's methamphetamine, but then you'll have other problems) and you can't get a bigger penis with a pill. That's total fraud. Your penis is what it is. It's what nature gave you at birth. If you think you're inadequate in bed or want better performance, become a better lover by improving your communications skills and find a partner that will love you unconditionally and vice versa.

    Sorry to have to break this to you, but PENIS ENLARGMENT PILLS DON'T WORK. THEY DON'T EXIST.

    Look at Stein's endorsement for this other "doctor's" product.

    If Stein is a doctor, he got passed through school by idiots. In this endorsement, he talks about "patient antidotes" about this product. Hello, "doctor"--could you mean ANECDOTES? And he "whole heartily" recommends the product. WHole HEARTEDLY is the phrase.
    This guy is a terrible joke. I strongly doubt he has a degree to practice ANY medicine.
    If you are considering using his services, I strongly urge you to pause and check any lawsuits against him. I suspect he is some quack or medico without a license.
    He is very scary

    Dr. Stein doesn't even know his mother's occupation. His website claimed she was a "sculptorist", which is irrelevant to everything he does, and "sculptorist" is not even a word in any language. Shouldn't the son of an "artist and a sculptorist" know that the word is "sculptor?" And shouldn't the person who took the quote, the person who wrote the copy for the web designer, the site admin, and EVERYONE else in the company know that!?!?!? Don't go near any "doctor" who uses infomercials, ever, even if the nice pictures of the Stein Medical Institute feature six beautiful, empty parking spaces. What a joke. Looks like seriously borderline medicine, with a fair mixture of outright quackery.

    I researched Dr. Stein after seeing an ad in the back of Motortrend Magazine and the first thing I noticed before I discovered this forum was the photo for the ad belonged to a different Dr. Stein that does joint replacement in Chicago. Then I googled "The Intamacy Foundation" and came up with the correct QUACK!!! I wonder if the other doc knows his likeness has been Hi-Jacked for Penis enlargement pills. Run for the EXITS people, this is a bad dude!!!

    I had a consultation with Dr Stein and it seemed all he wanted to do was fix all my areas even though some didnt need fixing so he could charge me 4500.00 per body part!! And then he was very pushy and wanted me to sign up without thinking about it. The only thing he is good at is evasion. Oh and if I am not happy with that body part he is willing to fix it for 2500.00 What a worm!!! Sure I am going to give him 18,000.00, NOT!

    Dr. Stein is a quack, the before and after pictures are NOT before or after anything. You will notice the only thing "after" means is the so called patients who raise their arms to make their love handles disappear.

    But more then that he peddles EXTENZ male enhancement pills!! The pills DO NOT WORK, So not only is he a quack he is also a snake oil seller!

    A couple weeks ago I had a consultation with Dr Stein,He is the most egocentric Person I've ever met. When I asked him if he was certify by the American Society of plastic Surgeons, he ignored me and change the topic. I went to the ASPS and his name wasn't even mention. Also the pictures that he uses to advertise d the VASER are not even his. They belong to Dr Millard. and Hoyos. but he claims there are his.

    Dont even waste your time or money with this doctor.
