Expertise.com ranks La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, which specializes in cosmetic dermatology, as one of the Top 20 San Diego practices out of nearly 300 dermatologists.
La Jolla, California (August 2016) — La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, a cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery practice, was recently ranked by Expertise.com as one of San Diego's Top 20 practices, based on a rigorous evaluation that included a review of its service and patient satisfaction.
"We appreciate that Expertise.com recognized La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, and we believe it's a testament to the dedication to patient care demonstrated daily by our entire team," says Dr. Susan Stuart, who has been serving San Diego residents as a board-certified dermatologist for more than 20 years.
Dr. Stuart and her counterpart, Dr. Richard Chaffoo, one of the few triple board-certified plastic surgeons in the country, form the only plastic surgeon-dermatologist duo in San Diego County. The husband-and-wife team's expertise consistently garners attention, as do the advanced aesthetic treatments they provide to their patients.
"Our unique practice provides patients the opportunity to address both their aesthetic and skin care needs under one roof," Dr. Chaffoo says. "This comprehensive approach to cosmetic enhancement includes innovative treatments such as advanced laser procedures and CoolSculpting® for fat reduction."
The San Diego County practice earned the honor after Expertise.com evaluated 286 dermatology practices in San Diego according to 6 criteria: reputation, credibility, experience, availability, professionalism, and engagement. It hand-picked the top practices after carefully reviewing the results of its evaluation.
Dermatologists included in the top 20 demonstrated that they are "masters of their craft, based on years of practical experience and education," Expertise says. Additionally, named dermatologists have "a history of delighted customers as a signal of outstanding service."
Dr. Stuart says it's important that patients choose a board-certified dermatologist, even for nonsurgical treatments such as BOTOX® injections that are offered by many types of providers.
"Getting consistently excellent results requires the training and experience that only board-certified dermatologists can offer," she says. "We understand the precision needed for successful treatments, and after all, patients deserve the best."
