In July of 2015, I suffered a partially torn
tendon on my right knee. For a week, I had to
ride a scooter to get around. Thankfully,
through physical rehabilitation, I was able to
walk on my own again.
As I write this e-blast, I am wearing braces on
both painful and swollen knees. I suffered a
debilitating right knee re-injury from last
weeks's Botox Day, April 27. The constant and
alternating sitting down, getting up and walking
caused a worsening of my knee tendon problems. I
have been walking with a cane since then. On
Tuesday this week I was not ready to work so I
had to cancel my patient appointments. My
schedule was kept light all this week.
NO MORE BOTOX DAYS...
My Pain Management doctor tells me that my body
is simply telling me to slow down and that my
knees cannot take the exhaustive physical
exertion required of me on Botox Days. And I
agree with her.
With profound regret and
sadness, I have to announce the end of ALL
Botox Days. My knees simply cannot take the
pounding they get on these days. This is the
only way to allow me to keep practicing
Cosmetic Medicine for many more years. I
deeply apologize for the inconvenience and
hardship this may cause.
Patients already scheduled for May 25 will
be contacted by my office staff to
reschedule. The Botox Day rates will no
longer apply, in fairness to those still
calling to come on Botox Days but could not
I also have to shorten my
clinic hours: Lunchtime will be 12:30 to 2
PM (instead of 1-2 PM) and I will take a
break in the afternoon from 4:40 to 5PM.
The office will reduce the number of new
patients and strive to maintain current
ones. The new patient discount will no
longer apply effective immediately.
PLEASE HELP ME PRACTICE LONGER...
With the growth of my
practice, I did not need to offer Botox
Days. I held Botox Days as long as I could
because I knew how many of you love to come
on these days.
Many patients say they wish
I could practice for a long time. That is
also my wish. With my history of 5 major
spinal surgeries due to my Congenital Spinal
Stenosis, I truly have to listen to my body.
The office has very limited
openings due to the meeting dates listed at
the top of the email and the anticipated
health-related office downtime. If you have
scheduled for Botox Day for Wednesday, May
25, please call 631-858-0500 to reschedule.
Thank you for your patience
