In the past patients were sent out with prescriptions and were given little to no advise from their physician about the cost other than suggesting that they call various pharmacies and inquire about prices, which is tedious and time consuming, therefore rarely done. Recently that all changed. There is now an internet site that is simple to use and will give you the lowest prices for prescription medications among the pharmacies in your area. This site is GoodRX.com. By simply typing in your zip code and the name of the medication, you will receive a list of the pharmacies and their prices for that drug. Utilizing this website can not only save you time but money as well.

Beau Pelle is developed by Dermatologists in conjunction with Chemists, it is clinically tested anti-aging cream that contains two short chain peptides. These peptides have been lab tested and proven to decrease wrinkles and stimulate collagen and other skin matrix molecules. One peptide acts by relaxing the muscle tissue in the skin to smooth and decrease wrinkles. This effect is prolonged with continued use of the cream. The other peptide promotes repair of damaged collagen and elastin, two major components of the dermis which supports the upper layers of the skin and give it a youthful appearance. Studies on crow's feet with this peptide demonstrated that after using it for 2 months, there was a 33% decrease in wringles. Similar results after using the peptide cream on the forehead were found. The two peptides in Beau Pelle have an additive or synergistic effect in producing youthful skin. Beau Pelle has undergone clinical trials with patients in our office and the results have been AMAZING!!! All patients using Beau Pelle cream have seen great improvement in their skin and are extremely happy with the positive anti-aging effects with Beau Pelle. For a limited introductory period we will be offering Beau Pelle at a reduced price of $45, normally selling for $75!! Call NOW to order 265-2100
Often when patients are seen we discuss a particular problem and as we are closing, the patient says, "Oh, by the way, there is another little spot I forgot to tell you about". Occasionally this is a serious skin lesion. To avoid this and other potential problems during the visit, it is good to prepare. Here are some things you can do before your appointment. Start off by making a list of the concerns you have as well as any questions you would like to ask. Secondly, make sure to have an updated list of medications (including all topical creams or ointments) you are taking to bring with you. If you have had any diagnostic lab, biopsy or xray studies done previously, either bring those results with you or have them faxed over from your previous physician. Lastly, make sure to bring your insurance cards as well as a form of ID. If you plan for your visit by doing the above, your appointment will be much more productive and will enable the doctor to provide the best care for you.
