Hi and welcome to the group. Dr. Geronemous is a wonderful doctor. I know a couple of people who have their child treated by him. He uses the V-beam.

Hi. My daughter uses Dr Geronemus and I am very pleased with him. I think he is the best. What he has accomplished for my daughter is wonderful.
He is at the Laser and Skin Surgery center. It is on 34th street between 1st and 2nd avenue.
I would definately reccommend him. Good luck....
