I really like this doctor. I go for a bit of filler and botox. I only like 20 units and unlike other doctors in Vancouver he does not try to get me to increase the units just to pay more! I find the staff here very unfriendly though - I have been several times and they never seem to remember me or act at all friendly. Shame, as the doctor is fantastic.
Paid (or co-pay): $600
Went to see Dr. Boey for some scarring (medically referred to as a traumatic tattoo) I got in a workplace accident. (Went thru WCB) He explained everything thoroughly. To remove the scarring, I had to go in about every month for a laser treatment. WCB would only pay for so many treatments. When Dr. Boey told me that the WCB money ran out, he said he would treat me for free until I was happy the scarring was gone. An incedible, unassuming, gentle person & very good at what he does. I would recommend him to anyone.

He patiently, kindly and intelligently responds to all of my questions (once an entire page!), in addition to really listening. He has even called me twice at home to answer more of my questions! I have never felt rushed, have never been upsold and have always been treated with genuine attentiveness. I also feel that he really knows his stuff and works ethically within his practice. I have been told by a couple of the top dermo's that I should get IPL and fraxel, to help with my melasma. He is the only one who steered me away from these treatments, explaining that in 75% of cases, these lasers make melasma worse. He has addressed my concerns about laser treatments worsening my skin by offering me patch tests first rather than pushing me into treatment. He has been honest, kind and realistic, which has definitly helped earn my trust. Thanks Dr. Boey!||Respond|

First saw him to correct a snooty "top" doctor's asymmetrically and overdone filler. He doesn't push other treatments on me, doesn't make me feel like I need more work done, doesn't try to sell me anything. Enquiries about other treatments came from me. Since then I have had laser treatments and I have nothing but praise for him and his staff. He's the best in the city for laser. The office is comfortable, clean and unpretentious. Recommended.||Respond|
