Testimonials

My first visit to Dr. Swengel's office today. I came in to see Sashah for a DermaSweep treatment. If you are a fan of microdermabrasion, you will love this even more. Sashah was able to customize the treatment for each type of skin on my face -- delicate around the eyes, heavier duty where needed on my forehead and nose area. She could also tell that the skin on my neck is different than my upper chest and could modify the intensity accordingly.

The second step in the process is an incredible infusion into my fresh skin with a super hydrating fluid and pure vitamin C. My skin absorbed it all and looks fantastic. The lines on my forehead and around my eyes are diminished, the dark spots are lighter and my skin looks hydrated and as smooth and soft as a baby's behind!

I went the rest of the day and then out to dinner with no makeup and got massive compliments! Sashah is a great Esthetician -- warm and professional as is everyone in the office. Thanks much for a great experience!

I was referred to Dr Swengel by a friend.

My visit was great! I was greeted by a friendly staff, and there was literally no wait at all. The Dr. saw me on time.

Dr. Swengel was honest, and gave me all the information I needed in regards to my concerns. He recommended some preventative treatments and overall I felt well cared for and that I was in good hands with a knowledgeable Doctor.

His office offers many different treatments and procedures. His office manager gave me the grande tour of the office which was really fun!

After suffering from moderate to severe acne for YEARS I have seen every doctor and done every treatment. I was getting extremely tired of it all, and was referred to Dr. Swengel by Dr. Lieberman and Dr. Parikh. Dr. Swengel is the first doctor to really LISTEN to my skin needs instead of starting me on the same regiment that all doctors use for acne - trust me I know it by heart, and could probably recite it from start to finish. Instead, Dr. Swengel took into account hormones and was extremely creative in his solutions and started me on a treatment I had never heard of or done before! My living 45 minutes away makes it difficult for him to see me as much as he needs, but in the times I am able to see him he is extremely accommodating and attentive. I also had my first facial peel with him, and it had fantastic results. I have no need to search for any more dermatologists - he is the one! Other than treatment, Dr. Swengel's bedside manner is amazing - he is sincere, compassionate, and understanding and doesn't just usher you quickly out of the office to see another patient - he really takes the time you need to be seen and heard. Side note - Eric the frontdesk agent is hilarious and kind! What a fantastic team!

Dr. Swengel is a great doctor.  I had developed a skin condition and had seen so many dermatologists in the area. They were all using aggressive medications that would cause more flare ups of my condition.

 

I am a physician in the area. I began to hear great things about Dr. Swengel from my patients and after a couple of months I decided to see him. I was blown away. He had me get off all the strong meds and we changed a couple of my daily routines and now my skin condition is no longer a daily struggle.

 

I really like his office and his staff. Most times you can see him within a few days. He is the Dermatologist I recommend to my patients.  He is truly the best.

Wow. An extremely pleasant and kind group of folks work at Dr. Swengel's office.  From the moment I first called their offices I knew I was dealing with knowledgeable and personable people. I can not recommended Dr. Swengel's office enough.

 

I went in for a simple mole removal and didn't feel a thing. In fact, during the procedure I had a wonderful conversation :) From walking through their doors, filling out a few papers for a 1st time visit, through the procedure took less than 30 minutes.

 

Thanks to Erick, Carlos, Melanie, and of course Dr. Swengel for making my visit so enjoyable.

I saw Dr. Swengel about 3 or 4 months ago to discuss laser hair removal on my neck. As an African American male with curly hair, shaving was a painful experience as a teen ager; I suffered through ingrown hairs for years before I grew out of it. In recent years however, it has become an episodic issue. In any event, I went into see Dr. Swengel. He was very professional and thorough in his evaluation and explanation of how the new technology could help me. It took about 4 sessions to remove the hair on my neck and a few other select spots on my face. I am very satisfied with the results. I just wish I had done this earlier!  My entire experience with Dr. Swengel and his entire staff was nothing but professional, pleasant and helpful. I was greeted each time I entered the office by friendly and engaged staff and made to feel that my patronage was valued. They provided great service and I would highly recommend Dr. Swengel's office!
