We had the good fortune of connecting with Leslie Rohaidy PA-C, AAOPM and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Leslie, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
We started this journey after being dissatisfied with the lack of transparency, honesty, and human touch in aesthetics. The world of aesthetic medicine is advancing, thriving by leaps and bounds, and growing over night but out dated medical office practices and cheesy med spas hold it back. Mysterious pricing, cheap chop-shop deals, lack of educational content, and unnatural results make the process intimidating and out of reach. There should be no such thing as a discount special when it comes to your face. Safety, sterility, education, follow-up, and final result should be your guide when choosing a provider, not promotional pricing from slow low-end medical offices trying to fill rooms .All consultations and treatments begin with a custom consult where exquisite attention is paid to your individual anatomy. Your facial expressions will be marked , analyzed, and explained to you whether we treat you or not. You will understand what is recommended for you in the short term and long term. We educate you on your options, product differences, treatment frequencies, and down-time. There was white space in the market for a cosmetic medical practice that. embraced continuity of care with their patient base. We see this is a long term relationship with an aesthetic medical expert you will grow to love and trust.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’d like the world to not refer to medical professionals practicing aesthetic medicine and botox ladies. We hold multiple professional and prescribing licenses as BOTOX is considered a prescription medication. We also don’t practice laser hair removal, dentistry, or shift our focus from the face. we are not botox ladies who do this on the side, but licensed everyday, all day and we have treated thousands of patients with the before and after images to prove it.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love design district in Miami. Its one of the few places where arts, culture, and shopping collide. Joel Roebuchon is a great place for elevated French cuisine. After lunch or dinner, visiting all the different art galleries in the area is a must.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I credit my mother, a fellow practicing physician and colleague as source of strength and mentorship.
