Five Stars

Dr. Fernau is both personable and achieves excellent outcomes. I couldn't be happier with the transformation my skin has had under his care. I have had very deep acne scars most of my life. The procedures did not hurt and I was awake during them. I can't express enough how incredibly happy I am with the ease of recovery and overall results. The improvement in my skin is drastic. It has truly helped my self confidence. I highly recommend Dr. Fernau!

Out of towner

Dr. Fernau and his incredible team made my experience as wonderful as it could be. I traveled from out of country - emails, skype consults, and finally a face to face the day before surgery (which was so convenient and efficient). Dr. Fernau's office staff helped me with transportation to and from the hospital and follow-up visits - I couldn't have asked for better and more sincere care.
