La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Dr. Susan Stuart, founder and director of La Jolla Dermatology and Medical Spa (http://www.lajollaskin.com), was named the "Best Dermatologist" by local newspaper La Jolla Light in their 12th Annual Best of Readers Poll. Readers of the newspaper annually vote for categories such as the "Best Restaurant," "Best Dry Cleaner" or the "Best Day Spa" in the La Jolla area and the winners are featured in a special issue. This is Dr. Stuart's fifth time being recognized by readers in this poll.
"It's an honor to be chosen as the best dermatologist in the area," Dr. Stuart says. "My staff and I work very hard to provide high-quality and compassionate care to all of our patients and it is very encouraging to be recognized by our community."
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Stuart has earned a reputation both locally and nationally for her expertise in skin care treatments and techniques. She has been recognized as one of San Diego's leading doctors for medical and cosmetic dermatology and for laser treatments such as laser hair removal in San Diego. In addition to being named "Best Dermatologist" by La Jolla Light multiple times, she has also been recognized nationally as one of America's top dermatologists.
Her philosophy is to offer the latest technology with personalized care to her patients. One of the most popular cutting-edge laser treatments she offers is the Fraxel® laser. San Diego patients choose this treatment because it effectively reduces the appearance of lines, wrinkles, age spots and acne scars with no downtime. Dr. Stuart offers technologies such as these on top of medical spa services that include dermal fillers and injectables like BOTOX® in San Diego.
"Many people do not realize how many tools are available in the field of cosmetic dermatology today, and are surprised to learn that I offer powerful and effective technology to treat things like skin discoloration or wrinkles," Dr. Stuart explains. "I make a special effort to stay up to date with the latest technology and techniques, while also taking the time to explain all the options to my patients so that they can make informed choices."
Dr. Stuart feels education is vital to a positive patient experience. Equally important is the level of care a patient feels while at the practice and having treatment. "My staff and I work hard to treat every person who walks in the door with compassion, respect and warmth," she adds. "I'm absolutely grateful to all of my patients and look forward to offering the best possible lineup of skin care services for many more years to come.
