I recently visited my dermatologist, Dr. Carla Retief and was diagnosed with skin cancer on my face. I returned to have Dr. Retief remove the cancer with Mohs Surgery. I was terrified about the cancer as well as the possible scar to my face. I am both relieved and pleased with my results and highly recommend Dr. Retief. The staff was terrific and made me so comfortable and Dr. Retief was exceptional at the removal and repair. I have known for years that she is a gifted doctor but now I can add gifted surgeon to the list. I can barely see a scar 4 months later and I know all the cancer is gone.

Love Dr. Retief and her staff. I have had problem skin for years and have spent thousands of dollars on products, prescription and non-prescription recommended by dermatologists and aestheticians. I never go any improvement with any of the creams or pills given to me. Dr. Retief spent alot of time with me in the room explaining why I had the acne issue before she treated me. I love her unique approach because she treats you as a whole and doesn't just look at your face. She prescribed a regimen for me along with an acne sheet that was very extensive and explained things to me that noone had ever told me before. Then her wonderful aesthetician took me back to have a facial designed to get me on the right track. Well, all I can say is my acne was cleared up in 4-5 days. Her customized skincare line was unbelievable and the pill she prescribed worked wonders. When I went back for a follow-up, she put me out to pasture and i look great. i sent my mom in to see her and she has her looking fabulous too!

Amazing results from both the eyelid surgery and the skin care line. I am in my 40's and very athletic but I started looking very tired from the fullness in my eyelids. My skin was full of brown spots and fine wrinkles from all the years of being outside without sunscreen. None of the skin products I have used worked, Dr. Retief took care of everything. The eyelid surgery was done in the office in under one hour and no pain. She put me on HER OWN SKIN CARE LINE (BufRx) !!!!. Less than five weeks later my skin and my eyes look amazing. I am so happy :)

My skin and face look fantastic - like they did twenty years ago thanks to Dr. Retief's amazing results with the laser treatments and filler in the cheeks and under the eyes. All of my friends go to Dr. Retief and are also getting amazing results from both the injectables and her mini facelifts.

I usually dont write reviews but I couldn't resist writting this after Mary S comments below. First she talks about lumpy results for a cosmetic procedure which is never billed at a later date. Dr. Retief's plastic surgery results are great which is why she is so busy without advertising. She HAS surgical training and does more mini lifts than most surgeons in town.

Lumpy irregular results. Had the same experience as shakedown. Always payed at time of service then billed again for the procedures. finally decided to just pay the shake down & never go back. Poor results anyway.
Also don't think a derm. Should be performing plastic surgery.

i have had dosages for years and have always had doctors throw prescriptions at me and not explain anything. Dr. Retief explained everything she was going to do in detail and why. Within 1 week, I was 50% better and in 3 weeks 100% better. She is the best. I send all my friends there now and they have been very happy.

Dr. Retief is a great doctor. She's funny, smart and LOVES what she does. She has a great skincare line BuffRX which works amazingly. She did my upper eyelids which look fantastic! She stays on the "cutting edge" of cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic surgeries. You cannot go wrong by seeing Dr. Retief.

I had a mini facelift by Dr. Retief 6 months ago. I am 58 years old and within weeks I looked like I did when I was 40. The surgery was simple and was done at her office. My recovery was fast and the results absolutely amazing. I recommended her to 4 of my friends who also had the procedure with great results. Her staff is pleasant and and her new practice manager is approachable and very polite and efficient. I would not go to anybody else for any of the services they offer.

I was recommended to Dr. Retief by a friend. My skin developed fine wrinkles and my face lost a lot of volume and I looked tired all the time. Within 6 weeks all my problems were gone. She put me on her own prescription line that she created and injected some fillers in my face that gave me back the younger look.I love Dr. Retief and I will keep going there.

I had seen several dermatologist for my acne without success. I went to Dr. Retief and she cleared me up in 2 months. Now my skin is fabulous. she spends alot of time talking to you about skincare and how the medications work

Dr. Retief was recommended highly by a neighbor of mine. I went to see her for my sunspots and wrinkles. She was very pleasant and explained all the treatments available in great detail. I had Total Fx laser treatment and I am very happy. I had no billing issues.

My experience was similar to Kristin's.

I paid for my visit with a check and got another bill a few weeks later, with a letter threatening that a nonpayment was going to be put on my credit report. I went to my bank and got a copy of the cleared check that proved I had paid in full, and mailed it to them. A few weeks later, the same thing happened again and I did the same response. The third time, I took a copy of the cleared check and went there in person. Some European guy who apparently manages the place or handles the billing spoke with me and was very unapologetic, extremely rude, and very condescending.

The incompetence and lack of professionalism is not what you would expect at a medical facility.
