I have been going to Southside Dermatology for a very long time so I thought, after google reviews and a consult with a staff member that I would have a laser treatment to collapse a small area of spider veins in one of my legs. During the consult, the staff member stated that she could remove the veins with one treatment (costing $350 per treatment lasting 15 minutes). She did also tell me that sometimes, not often, the after affect could lead to browning in the treated area but that only happened with one patient of hers. I scheduled an appt. and had the treatment. The end result is that the treated veins are more pronounced (red) and I saw very little improvement of any of the veins collapsing. I showed my result to the staff member and she said in a very nonchalant and unconcerned manner that I would probably need 1-2 more treatments. I was extremely disappointed in her response as it sounded like she could care less. I am so grateful that I only let her do one leg (I wanted to see results first). Now I have to find someone to redo the treated veins as they are now very accentuated. It is an unfortunate situation as you just don't know who to trust. I don't mind spending money on a procedure but become very angry when 1) you are mislead at initial consult, 2) outcome makes situation way worse, and 3) provider doesn't care. I guess it is all about the money in the end.

I found Dr. Pentel and her staff to be pleasant, informative, and they wanted to do the best thing for me. In fact, Dr. Pentel discouraged me from making any quick decisions and wanted to make sure I had a good understanding of the results I could expect. She even suggested getting a second opinion from another doctor of my own choosing.
Horrible Experience at Dr Pentel's Spa & Laser Center
Self-verified patient of Dr. Mary T Pentel - Posted on September 27th, 2016
Office seems very disorganized. Went in for Botox and Filler (after attending Open House last Saturday). Was told they didn't have the Filler that she had recommended. Staff didn't order or was somewhere in office, but she could not locate. Seriously?! Then, iPad was put in front of me for signature without any explanation. Then, left sitting in room for over 45 minutes. Dr Pentel rushes in - apologizes and does a quicky Botox and Filler. All the while claiming that Filler isn't working. At one point even squirted Filler on attendant. Then, she says she wants to do Laser in same area. Seemed as though she knew the Filler wouldn't/didn't work?! The entire experience felt very rushed and unauthentic. I was handed a qoute for laser with no explanation of the procedure. I left feeling as though all the Dr cared about is making quick $$$. I have had Botox and Filler before and this experience was horrible in comparison. I will not go back. Very unfortunate.
