Dr Max and staff are the best ever! The facility is spotless and beautifully done. The staff friendly and professional. I have been going here for years for botox and 'maintence'. Always have had my concerns answered and been treated like a valued guest. Dr Max has refused to do treatments that he did not think I needed ( a first- most just want your $$!) . I have never had a painful experience- and have gotten better than expected results with every thing I have had done! Highly recommend!
Went to get some beautifying service. I had vein injection.
I was treated on dirty sheets with equipment not discarded from the previous client.
The varcose vein treatment was horrific, the pain was so awful. The treated veins are now hardened, and darker than ever.
In the year 2011 is it really too much to get a little numbing medicine?
Amazing! This Dr. is an artist of the human body. I have been a client of Dr. Grishkevich (Dr. Max) for several years. The usual botox,Juvederm, laser skin treatments. Well after tons of research and taking the weekend and two work days off I took the "SmartLipo" plunge. I have always carried a LARGE amount of fat in my midsection although the rest of my body I dont mind. (you know the apple shaped body) No amount of time at the gym or diet would have put me where I am at today. I have always trusted this physician his wife and the rest of the staff. I know have a sculpted flat stomach! no love handles or those annoying back fat rolls Yuck! I want in my closet now and my clothes are not the enemy anymore. All of those baby doll shirts or tunics bye bye . I want to wear clothes that show my shape.. I have an hour glass shape now and I didnt loose any my chest size like I would if I had to loose this weight through diet. My chest actually looks larger. The skin in the areas is actually firm and every day ir gets tighter. I have not done a sit up in four years and I have a for year old son. And I have a sexy stomach. It has made me make smarter food choices and I just signed up at the gym. I am 5'5 and 160 8 *lbs less fat in my torso. I feel evenly shaped now. I feel sexy and thats important. Iam the owner of of a beauty related business in Portland and many of my clients attend this medispa and have had Smartlipo as well II hear alot of great feedback. I have seen quite a bit of "work" women have had done and Dr. Max is superior!
Highly Recommend. Have visited on numerous occassions and I have been very pleased and satisfied. I highly recommend this spa and Dr Max
Great service, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.. From the moment I walked in to V.I.P Medispa I felt a sense relaxation. It was obvious to me that I had chosen the right place to have my "work" done, as this is a very clean and beautifully designed facility. The staff members are very gracious and knowledgeable and the equipment is top of the line. I look forward to coming in each time and I feel confident in knowing that if I have any concerns or questions about my treatments the doctor will take as much time as I need to answer them. I have had lazer hair removal, microdermabrasions, lazer treatment for hyperpigmentation and botox and have had wonderful results from each. The doctor and staff are professional yet have a fun sense of humor that makes my trips here fun and enjoyable. I will definitely keep coming back.
One hundred out. My previous surprise returned when the esthetician started the treatment and I could barely feel it. I let her know, that it was a '2" from a scale 1-10 (10 being the strongest) and she quickly replied saying that she'd fix it and that she was also surprised "because most women want immediate results but don't want it that strong." After much fiddling, and dropping things, she excused herself to get 'her boss' or 'the doctor.' He came in and did some adjusting on the machine and then said "it's fixed." I had mentioned earilier in my email, that I'd also want extractions...as I've learned before that with every facial you should get them......but the esthitician disagreed with my requests...professing that it would irritate my skin more and that I should get a peel to go along with the micro for an extra $50.00. Since I have had combo sessions before I agreed...and was now happy that I did, because the crystals weren't any stronger or more effective after the doctor's 'fixing.' And the application of the crystals seemed very inconsistent. The estitician started on one side of my face (upper cheek) moved sporatically to my forehead, then some parts of my chin, and then back to the same cheek....in this same kind of non-linear movement...never even making it to my upper lip. During this process the receptionist walked in without knocking asking her "how much longer is it going to be?" which the esthitician responded 10 minutes. Finally the treatment was over, and what I hoped to have was a smooth texture on my face like I've received before but I didn't. Fortunately the esthitician offered not to charge me the $50 for the peel, because of the inconvenience of the situation which I thanked her graciously for....but knew deep down that this was one of the worst, most unprofessional, medspa treatments I have ever had...and I would never return. Next time...I'll try downtown.....
Editorial Review. Spa located in a state-of--the-art facility giving state-of--the-art care.
high tech but not very service oriented. The spa is very nice and clean...maybe a little sterile. Would not recommend. The price of the botox was good but wasn't impressed with the micro/chemical peel. Ended up having an allergic reaction to the botox even though I had it in the past with no problems.
Professional, current knowledge & equipment. Highly trained, intelligent, talented staff.. This is a beautiful spa with service that matches the chic decor. I have had several procedures done and LOVE This place!
Great professionals. Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide.
