Would you go to a DO (Anethesiologist) who also does cosmetic procedures r/o

and does not like to be asked any questions?

I went to a guy who has the "right" kind of laser (yag) and he is doing a living social deal. But he didnt seem to react well to me asking questions.He seems like if you ask him stuff you are questioning his ability. His staff also seem a bit off.

He actually went so far as to ask that i not redeem the voucher and they told me they would refund it. I guess they think I dont trust them.

LS said they are on my side and will talk to them if I want to try to use the voucher, what should I do?

I have a groupon for another kind of laser which isnt supposed to be as effective on my skin type (Indian). That is the Lightsheer Duet.

I was planning to use that one after the YAG to get the remaining fine hairs which theYAG is not good at.

I guess I should skip the YAG and head straight to the LIghtsheer?
The LIghtsheer doc, an MD and plastic surgeon, is way nicer and much more professional.

No, Anesthesiologists are paid better than most doctors, so the idea of one practicing out of ROPmylegfeelsfunny11/28/2012 1:01PM

Not unless they are a board certified PS, and only PS's who need customers run coupons. Beware,mjrose11/26/2012 12:17PM

I think you can be a good doctor and run groupons. Lots of reasons a doc may need to build clientsmylegfeelsfunny11/28/2012 1:02PM

u had me at DO/anesthesiologist. don,t.pandabear511/25/2012 11:54PM

DO/Anasthesiologists = MDs so that isn't even a factor.It's the personality that's offJennyP811/26/2012 6:26PM

a DO is definitely *not* the same as an MD!PilatesChick11/27/2012 11:39PM

Like WillowWynde said...chacacheeze11/28/2012 10:58PM

DO schools are rated lower though. Online it says he went to a 1-star school LOLbellabambina11/30/2012 10:34AM

My father is a retired Anesthesiologist ++WillowWynde11/28/2012 7:37AM

Exactly. The problem is in the doc.. not the fact that he's a DOJennyP812/1/2012 7:24PM

My point is she didnt say bd certified plastic surgeon.pandabear511/26/2012 11:34PM

'does not like to be asked any questions' & 'living social deal' = red flagsdiana711/24/2012 3:55PM
