I rated them with one star only because that was minimally required to write a review. So, I went to this place for my laser hair removal. It was extremely difficult to get appointment with these people. It always felt like you have to work according to their schedule & they would not accommodate with your personal needs. BTW, they were nice & accommodating during my first 2 visits & were open during Saturdays also (that was the reason why I purchased my Groupon)
Trust me, every time I got an appointment with them, it felt like I won a lottery ticket !! But anyway, I had purchased 6 sessions with them & each appointment was 8-10 weeks apart. I couldn't even make it to my appointments regularly due to some health issues & my travel overseas so it felt like I had been going to them for years.
I was there yesterday after winning another lottery ticket with them on the appointment. I took half a day off from work since they wouldn't give you the time that works for you. I was kinda stuck since I had paid already so it was more like "use it or lose it" kind of a deal for me. After driving about 50 miles to them, taking half a day off & waiting there for about 35 minutes past my appointment time- the receptionist came to me & asked me which option I would like to buy. Then she told me it was my 7th visit. I was like how come you didn't tell me last time to avoid me all this hassle today. She said: "It's an EQUAL responsibility & I should have remembered it too." What the hell? How am I supposed to keep track of all these when I have been going there for years? It truly is the merchant's responsibility. Do you remember when your cell-phone contract ends? They always tell you that it does!! If they were expecting us to remember the number of visits then they should have given a check card or something for us to take with every time. They could then stamp it or something.
Oh well, All I can say is that this place is totally non-customer friendly & will trap you once you pay your money. Run away from this place!!
Dr. Dawood is a miracle maker – Dr. Dawood is a miracle worker and I am a believer in his work 100%. I went to see Dr. Dawood with a Groupon Special for laser treatment.
I had been going to a doctor in Brea for the past 15 years for all my cosmetic needs fillers, botox, IPL treatments, etc, and they have always done good work. Today I can honestly say that Dr. Dawood will be taking care of all my future costmetic needs.
The fractional laser treatment is amazing, I must tell you it does hurt a bit during the laser treatment, but I had no pain after the treatment was completed. My face looked like a pizza pie for the first few days and after a week I could see things changing. It's been 3 weeks and I am getting compliments from friends and family who know about my visit to Dr. Dawood. I look 10 years younger than the day I first met Dr. Dawood. f.y.i. I didn't even get the maximum laser treatment and got results like this I plan on returning for the maximum treatment in 6 months. My suggestion if you are considering fractional laser surgery get the maximum treatment for the best results.
Full Service!! – We are a modeling company and have a wide variety of clients in LA, Orange and Riverside counties. It seems that today, everyone has at least one tattoo or multiple tattoos. We have had several well known clients use Dr. Dawood's services and the results have been incredible in using most of his services. From tattoo removals, moles, scars and acne scar correction.....they have performed and given results beyond what we thought possible for our clients. They are always available for us and our clients and they have gone out of their way to meet some high demanding needs of a few of our clients.....lol.....
We rely heavily on appearance in our industry and they have been a godsend for us. They have helped us and our clients succeed in getting work work and meeting the needs of the project/director. In such a competitive market, anyone who needs to look their best can take comfort that Dr. Dawood and the Sublime staff know what they are doing and do everything you can think of just shy of plastic surgery. We are seeing a big push back on "plastic surgery" corrections and the natural corrections like bottom, juviderm, weight loss medicines/programs are the only thing we recommend to our clients.
We are sold and will continue to use them as our preferred vendor and have nothing but the highest regards for these professionals.
Incredible Experience – I would first like to say that Sublime Medical is the most professional boutique outfit I have been exposed to.
Their staff and Dr. Dawood are well informed and had answers to every question I have had and those of my wife and friends. To date, I have had 26 friends use their service (along with me :o)) and everyone has given their experience 5 stars or a perfect 10. From skin treatments, hair and tattoo removal and medical weight loss...Everyone has been super happy and has been back for additional services.
I had laser skin resurfacing at LDI and paid 4x what they charge and am not happy with the results that I got. Their laser is the newest, strongest and best (I looked it up!) and they fixed me with one treatment! Amazing.. I wish I had known before I wasted all that money, time and went through all that pain. I felt nothing with Dr. Dawood!
I bought one of the Groupon hair removal deals for my wife and she is excited to have that done. I am impressed that they sold nearly 1,000 of them. That has to tell you something! A short wait to get in, but well worth it!!!
These guys (and gals) are the best and I could not give a higher endorsement for anyone. Like I mentioned, I along with two dozen friends have been to Sublime and most had been to other places before. We are sold and won’t go anywhere else!
Keep it up and good luck with your continued growth....
Great Results! – I bought the groupon for this place, and oh my gosh was I excited! I tried right away to get an appointment! I couldn't wait.
Though the wait was long(a couple months!) to be seen the service turned out to be amazing. :)
The laser hair removal technician is great. She's kind, comforting, and precise. I love my results! Most of the staff seems pretty friendly, I would recommend this place...that is.. if you can get in.
Couldn't have had a better experience – This year has been rough for me in the wrinkle department and I friend told me I should look into botox. My problem areas are between my eyes, my forehead and the two lines that go from my nose to the corners of my mouth. I knew I wanted botox for the upper portion but I still wasn't sure what to do about the lower portion.
I walked in nervous. I knew I wanted to take care of it but had no idea what to expect, I certainly didn't want to come out looking plastic or alien-like and I was afraid of the pain.
When I walked in I was politely greeted and then taken into the back. The nurse Colleen was awesome. She took her time - I didn't feel rushed AT ALL and I asked a million questions. She politely answered them and was extremely understanding and supportive even though she probably hears the same thing every day.
Dr Dawood came in and he was the same way. He took his time, answered questions and I never once felt like there was a question I couldn't get answered. To me, that's huge - that's the biggest thing that doctor's can do to make an experience good or bad.
He explained the botox and then 3 different type of fillers. He wasn't annoyed when I asked how much stuff cost. Then they set up for the treatment.
I was extremely nervous at this point and then they started the treatment. He was SOOOOO gentle and tried very hard to make it as comfortable as possible. The botox wasn't bad at all and the filler was a little bit worse but short- lived. Definitely easier than I thought.
When I got done the results were immediate for the filler and for the botox I have to wait 5 days or so. I didn't know what to think at first - I read not to judge it immediately after (redness and swelling) but here I am 2 hours later and I LOVE it. I can't wait to see the final results in 5 days.
I totally recommend this office!!!!
Avoid Shady Tattoo Removal Places and GO HERE! – I'm one of the fools who went to the office of Dr. "Tattoff" only to find out no doctor even worked there, seriously. My plastic surgeon told me about them but said there's only like 3 places that do removal, and they only knew about him because one of his employees went there for cosmetic work and pitched him.
I was in a rush to get my first treatment done, so I went there, was treated about as well as expected from his inattentive staff who sadly think they're celebrities because they're absent "boss" was on TV. I'm pretty sure a medical assistant did the laser for me and it took about 5 seconds per tattoo (4x4 approx). The lady coming up with prices was rude to me after I pointed out discrepancies in her website and pricing chart (the panther they have only shows to be gone after 3 sessions, in their office it says 9).
After zero results from the first treatment, in addition to crappy service, I realized I was an idiot and decided to go to Sublime, now I feel like more of a fool for not going in the first place. They're office is A-MAZING! Their interior designer does exceptional work (I plan to ask who they were, as I'd like to hire them). The staff? Awesome and hilarious. I'm a bit of a ball buster and they hung with me the whole time, firing right back. The doctor, yes, a REAL DOCTOR does the removal (!!!!), also great.
I noticed a difference right away, not just that Sublimes office is in the current era where Tattoff's may be stuck in time (somewhere around the mid 90's). The chairs, machinery, etc. in Sublimes office was impressive. Something told me it was going to hurt more after I saw everything. It did, you can surely feel a difference between a so-so machine and some new fancy shmancy digital beast. The doctor also spent a lot more time (like 20-30 seconds) making sure he got all of it versus the assistant who zig-zagged her way into a record 5 second removal.
I had previously told my plastic surgeons office about Dr. Tattoff's place and they decided to stop referring patients to them. I called them as soon as I left Sublime and told them to use this place, and told them I got a stack of cards to drop off for them. They know I'm the big "review gal".
I'm HUGE on reviews and HUGE on customer service and satisfaction.
For those who get a slight case of Tourettes with laser tattoo removal, the doctor at Sublime lets you curse at him. :D
Anyway, I'll be going back to them for the rest of my tattoos!
If you go, tell them Lori sent you and you heard the doctor likes to be verbally assaulted, (If you're the jokester type, otherwise ignore that part). They are very professional, by the way, for people who prefer a straight edge kind of visit, I just broke through that and need comic relief when I'm being tortured with a laser.
Boichemical Face Peel and Home Products – My best friend and I have been going to Johanna since 2003. We always enjoy our appointments as she is so personable and fun. I have gone to salons and spas for facials when on vacation and they check your face for sun damage with a special light. They tell me my sun damage is not bad for someone my age! This is surprsing as I was a sunworshiper when I was young and never used sunscreen on my face! I credit the peels - Thanks Johanna!
Johanna Abbott - Very reasonable pricing on Biochemical peel – I have nothing but good things to say about Johanna Abbott. I have been going to her for seven years and love the results of the biochemial peels I've had. I have seen deep peels on television which are much more invasive and my results have been just as good. I totally disagree with the comment of her being dishonest. I had prepaid for several peels and I had forgot I had two left. I just went in yesterday and had Johanna not told me I would not have known. She could have easily said I only had one but she didn't. I have referred several friends who have been very pleased with her products and peels and all keep coming back because of the excellent results. Not only is Johanna Abbott good at what she does she's very personable and likeable. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a complete makeover for their skin. My Doctor told me had he not looked at my chart he would not know I was a smoker because he said my collagen was so good for my age and I've been smoking for 25 years. Johanna said that her biochermical peels would help produce more collaqen and she was right. Now that's results! Everything Johanna said about her peels and products has been 100% true in fact the results have exceeded my expectations.
great esthetician !!! – i have been a client with johanna abbott since 1994.she fixed all my skin problems from acne to large pores and more.i have followed her everywhere she worked and i will be using her services for my skin for the rest of my life.she is the reason why i go to sublime medical.i trust her and the great dr.daewood with my skin.awesome team! very professional and beautiful,clean office.
