Roy Geronemus, MD: [Dr. Geronemus narrates over video of a doctor speaking to a patient and a patient receiving a laser treatment. Dr. Geronemus treats a patient with a laser as they lie on a table] The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York was founded, by me, in 1993. At that time, I had been practicing dermatologic surgery and laser surgery and Mohs micrographic surgery at the NYU Medical Center where I founded its laser program in 1983. So, I took that ten years of experience and opened up this center which has now become one of the largest and most comprehensive laser and technology centers in the world.
All of our physicians have very unique skills regarding the devices that they use and the different procedures that they perform. Many of the devices that we have were, in fact, developed in part here at The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York.
Yoon-Soo Cindy Bae, MD: [Dr. Bae and other doctors treat a patient lying on a table] The best thing about working at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York is the variety of lasers that I have access to, and the access to the world’s leaders in laser surgery. Many of us have been trained by Dr. Geronemus in his fellowship, however, we all come from a different knowledge base and skill set from our previous years of training. So, although we’re all very familiar with the different lasers, we all have our passion and our niche.
Ronald Shelton, MD: [A computer screen monitors heat during a patient procedure. A patient smiles into a mirror after receiving a laser skin treatment] One of the biggest advantages of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York that attracted me to join this wonderful crew of doctors and nurses is that we have so many devices and so many willing physicians to collaborate with on the treatment of our patients. When a patient leaves after a consultation, I feel very comfortable that they could not have gone anywhere else to get a better plan of treatment.
Michelle F. Henry, MD: [Doctors sit around a meeting table to discuss ideas.] This practice really has the best of the best and it’s amazing when you have an issue you can really just call up the best minds in laser to really help you clarify things. It’s really great, we have a lot of meetings where we kind of share ideas so it’s a really nice place for all of us to kind of grow.
Roy Seidenberg, MD, FAAD: [Dr. Geronemus treats a patient with an injectable. Doctors examine patients and discuss treatments with them in an examination room.] The general dermatologists who work at The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York and the doctors here are way at the top of their field. Besides being excellent at what they do they’re all really pleasant and personable and that’s very reassuring for me and for my patients.
Daniel A Belkin, MD: [Dr. Belkin speaks to a female patient. A patient receives a laser tattoo removal procedure.] The general attitude here is that patients come first, and we treat every patient like they’re a VIP. We just want to give the best care to pretty much everybody who comes through the door. What this means to the patient is that you know you can come to one place that you trust and take care of pretty much everything you want to take care of.
Elliot T. Weiss, MD: [Dr. Geronemus treats a patient with a laser as they lie on a table. Doctors speak with patients.] It’s a great asset to have the group of physicians we have here. It’s just a lot of years of experience, thousands of procedures performed by all of us here and we all have slightly different interests and we all have slightly different experience so it’s an incredible opportunity. You’re really bringing in decades of experience with all the new technologies that are available. It really ensures you can get the best outcome for your patient.
Robert T. Anolik, MD: [A doctor discusses files with a group of nurses. Nurses look at patient files in the office. Doctors discuss ideas around a large table. A doctor treats a patient with a laser.] Being a part of such a wonderful group of dermatologists means that we have like a brain trust where we can come together and have ideas and share ideas. We work collaboratively and I think that’s a wonderful thing. Not just with our patient care, also with our research, with our early morning meetings where we talk about complicated cases, where we talk about how to optimize outcomes. Those sorts of things make a real difference and at our center I know that we’re delivering that to our patients.
Leonard J. Bernstein, MD: [A doctor discusses files with a group of nurses. Nurses look at patient files in the office. Doctors discuss ideas around a large table. A doctor treats a patient with a laser.] The patients have a tremendous advantage being here at our office. We have the latest technology, we do a lot of research, they’re able to participate in new technologies before they become commonplace in the market. The best physicians who are utilizing these devices who are laser fellowship trained. We use our knowledge for both teaching as well as treating our patients.Jessica J. Krant, MD MPH: [Dr. Krant treats a patient with a laser. A patient looks in a mirror.] Well one of my favorite parts of this job is that not only are we helping people have healthier skin and healthier bodies, but we’re also helping their emotional lives too. When they feel more confident, more happy, more relaxed. People tell them they look more confident, happy and relaxed and that makes us happy.
