Very impressed! I visited Bellavue Medical for their Genesis laser treatment. I had a consultation with Dr. Mirchou and Angela Cole regarding my options and what the expected results would be. They answered all of my questions thoroughly and I was completly comfortable with my decision to proceed. The treatment itself was easy and rather soothing. Angela performed the treatment and made the experience quite enjoyable. She is very concerned about your safety and comfort (taking every precaution) while striving to achieve the best results possible. As I mentioned, I found the procedure to be soothing and aside from a wee bit of tightness and a dry feeling that developed a few hours following the treatment (a normal and expected occurrence) I had absolutely no discomfort associated with the laser treatment. Angela had warned that it is normal to experience some redness following the treatment but any that I may have had faded shortly after I left. In addition, the dryness I felt was easily resolved by doing some extra moisturizing. I had absolutley no "down time" associated with my visit. Immediately following the treatment you will notice that your skin appears "brighter" but the real results show up several hours later. In my case, I felt that my face looked fuller and less tired. My make-up looks better now and I am very pleased with these initial results. I will be returning in a couple of weeks for a follow-up treatment. The facility is very clean and calming. The staff is courteous and pleasant to work with. Dr. Mirchou and Angela are genuinely interested in their patients as individuals and clearly take pride in achieving the best results. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend Bellavue to anyone looking to try the Genesis laser treatments or anyone who may want to maintain or improve their appearance.
Unfortunately, this was my doctor for the duration of my pregnancy with my first son. Dr. Gex was always 45 minutes to 1 hour late, which would have been ok if he actually took the time to answer my questions. I asked him about caffeine during pregnancy and he said THERE HAVE BEEN NO STUDIES ON HOW CAFFEINE AFFECTS PREGNANCY... really? No studies at all??? Anyway, the only thing he spent any great length of time discussing with me was about getting induced if my baby didn't come before the day of my due date. As it turned out he did have me induced and it was a HORRIBLE experience. I was asked to speak to my doctors for HOURS but the nurses told me he was unavailable. He conveniently showed up about 10 minutes before the baby was born at 3:30 on a monday afternoon and I'm sure he was home by 5 o'clock that night. He wanted the baby born on his schedule regardless of whether it was healthy for the baby or there was any discomfort for me. I would have switched doctors before the baby was born, but I was afraid my insurance wouldn't cover 2 doctors and my deductable had already been paid. I only gave him 3 stars because thankfully my baby was born healthy, and unlike Dr. Gex his office staff was very nice and helpful.
Nice clinic. Easy to check in with the electronic questionnaire. The staff is really great and caring. Jasmine at the front desk makes you feel at ease. Nurse Rosemary is quite efficient at intake. Angelique takes blood so professionally.....no pain at all. Dr. Mark is super and so knowledgeable. If you are looking for a great neighborhood clinic, this is it. Even if you have to wait, it is well worth the competent care.
