I suffered second degree burns all over my arms at the hands of her laser. She is highly incompetent. Dr Tracy Evans referred to the burns as “bruising.” Seared, blistered skin. This was due to her incompetence of not inquiring when my last sun exposure had been — it was within the past few days.
Laser is attracted to melan in the skin, and sun exposure increases melan levels. She used an aperture of approximately 1×2″ all over my arms. I am now scarred for life with white 1×2″ patches on my forearms. I was jumping off the table in pain and she continued the treatment.
Any competent, compassionate, doctor would have stopped the procedure rather than harm their patient. She NEVER admitted her fault, nor apologized. However, she DID try to sell me expensive sunscreen, and invite me back for further procedures to rectify her mistakes (still never admitting to her having caused me second degree burns).
I had two consultations from competent dermatologists that both stated this was negligence on her behalf. She NEVER should have used a laser on my skin because of the recent sun exposure–she should have sent me out the door for two weeks–instead she took my money burnt, and scared me for life. Do not be fooled by the fancy office, and smiling faces on her website. Avoid this one at ALL costs.
