Dear ,

Thank you so much for reaching out to me about my new practice. Based on your inquiry, I understand that you wish to learn about my new concierge care cosmetic dermatology practice, RVL Skincare, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
I’m thrilled to provide more information on how I can personally strategize your bespoke aesthetic game plan and execute an elevated caliber of cosmetic medicine. Please find all the details below.

What is the new RVL Skincare Concierge Care?

  • A membership fee for an exclusive & small cohort of just 200 patients for whom I can be easily accessed and spend an hour at each appointment, every quarter.

  • Each hour-long appointment permits enough time to complete all needed procedures (injectables and lasers), to update medical-grade skincare routines, and to address any medical dermatologic needs

What are the associated fees for joining?

  • To provide this exceptional service, I am charging a ${amount} membership fee to patients who wish to join. • The membership includes a 10% discount off skincare offered on RVLskincare.com online during your membership year.

  • With this transition, all medical dermatology services now will be provided at a fee-for-service. Receipts for medical services can be provided for out-of-network submission when requested.

  • Find pricing for your specific desired cosmetic treatments and medical services below.

Why this new Concierge Care Service? 

After years of working in a large practice and garnering a cosmetic following of 1,200 patients, I recognize that high quality medicine is only delivered when a physician has the adequate amount of time with each patient. I have found that a concierge care model, where I set aside an hour with each client, once a season, is the right amount of time needed to strategize a bespoke aesthetic game plan and execute an elevated caliber of cosmetic medicine.

However, in order to provide this dedicated care with regular access to my services, I am only able to maintain an exclusive and small cohort of patients (200 rather than 1,200) and will not be taking any new in-person patients. I am thrilled to create the practice of my dreams, with long-term patients that I am honored to care for. Thank you for inquiring about my new practice and I am available to answer any questions you may have concerning the model on my cell at (917) 660-6639. Please feel free to reach out.
