Ratings for Dr. Elizabeth Lourens
BEWARE of Dr. Lourens and her FAKE REVIEWS. I believe she is a quack. She injected Sculptra into my cheeks/temples to add fullness but then she also injected it throughout one side of my jaw and chin without my permission! When I told her I did not want a bigger jaw/chin she lied and said that Sculptra doesn't add volume which is exactly opposite what her website says about Sculptra and opposite my previous experience with Sculptra from another doctor. She said she did this to add collagen and that it doesn't add volume. I think she is a quack - adding volume is the precise purpose of Sculptra! Dr. Lourens deformed and enlarged my chin/jaw and because Sculptra lasts for several years I am left with this bulbous, deformed and lopsided chin and jaw for years! A year has passed and it is still like this. At my follow up she had the Sculptra sales rep, her friend Jay (female), attend and try to convince me that Sculptra doesn't add volume so that I wouldn't report her. I have proof that this Sculptra rep, Jay, left her an over the top glowing review, and then deleted it. Another Sculptra practitioner told me to report Dr. Lourens to the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons. I have also sent the fake review to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta. I believe Dr. Lourens purposely attempted to deform my face and that she probably does this to attractive women out of jealousy. She also made insulting remarks about my looks that are lies, such as that my cheeks are falling when they are certainly not! She also did bizarre things such as unusually pulling my head during the injections, switching before and after photos, doing something that caused my eye (not my eyelid by my actual eye) to become numb which was frightening, and other completely unprofessional things. After she did or said something bizarre or unprofessional she suddenly changed her demeanor as if nothing odd just happened. My experience with Dr. Lourens was alarming. I urge anyone who has had a similar experience with her to report it to the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Beware that she goes by 3 different names: Dr. Lizette Lourens, Dr. Elizabeth Lourens, and Dr. Maria Lourens.
As a male approaching 60, I knew I was a little overweight, my energy level was low and my skin wasn't looking great. My wife sent me to see Dr. Lizette Lourens and I'm so happy she did. Dr. Lourens was warm, friendly - and honest. She told me I was a prime candidate for diabesity - I wasn't just a little overweight; I was actually obese. And if I didn't control my food intake, I may become diabetic, too. She suggested I read "The Blood Sugar Solution", gave me immediate recommendations for changing my daily eating habits, and put me on a range of supplements. Just 3 months later, I was down 30 lbs, have way more energy and my skin looks much healthier. Most importantly, I FEEL healthier and happier. And even when I have those times when I fall off the wagon and I'm not making the most healthy eating choices, the supplements have helped prevent me from packing on the pounds again. Thank you, Dr. Lourens - I couldn't have done it without your help.
Dr. Lourens is wonderful and immediately puts you at ease. She's funny, engaging and easy to talk to which is so important with a physician. She has been a godsend in getting my hormones balanced after an unexpected full hysterectomy that threw me into surgical menopause. She was committed to helping me get back to a good quality of life. My energy is back, I can focus, I'm exercising regularly again, I never have a hot flash and I can sleep. For those of us with menopausal symptoms, that's a huge improvement.
Prior to visiting Dr. Lourens, I had no idea about adrenal fatigue. I just knew that I needed help desperately as I no longer had the energy to jog or cycle or do a single sit-up. Within hours of waking I needed to sleep. My mind was foggy, concentration gone, joyousness for life became obsolete. Dr. Lourens specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). With her education and expertise, I was placed on the BHRT program and am living proof that this science is life changing and life saving - literally. I am grateful for the science and Dr. Louren's approach to medicine - she is the only Dr I have found that even recognizes the value/necessity of optimal hormonal balance.
I am male, over 70. Dr. Elizabeth Lourens has been managing my unevenly aging face with Sculptra treatment following spectacular failures with cosmetic surgery elsewhere. My first treatment which consisted multiple vials was eighteen months ago. She followed up with three more of one or two vials. I am very satisfied with the results. I now have facial symmetry. Volume has not only been restored, it is very much enhanced. Her skill in selecting injection sites is remarkable. Although youthful look was not my reason for seeking her intervention, the excellence of her results is amply quantified by the many unsolicited compliments I receive from everybody I know “you look younger with each passing day”. I feel healthy and confident. They are due to the fine skills, generosity and professionalism of my doctor.
Dr. Lourens has been a sanity saver for me. Do not think for one minute that aging means 40 extra pounds, loss of vitality and chronic fatigue. Dr. Lourens can help. At 44 years old, I have been seeing her for approximately 6 months and lost the weight, gained the energy and mental clarity and I'm sleeping again! In my case, it was all about the hormonal balance. It has been a fabulous experience and now my husband is considering a consultation.
I've been traveling from Calgary to Canmore for five years to see Dr. Lourens for my annual check-ups. I appreciate her suggestions for preventative care, including taking vitamins, omegas and probiotics. She is always punctual and her assistant is fantastic.
I started seeing Dr. Lourens about 2 years ago, when at that time I was depressed, fatigued and suffered with insomnia. All of these characteristics, were related to a severe Testosterone deficiency. After numerous consultations and follow-ups, Dr. Lourens has helped me balance my hormone levels so that "I feel like myself again". I have more energy to hit the gym, I have more enthusiasm for work, and relish time with my family and friends. I encourage anyone who is "silently suffering" to seek treatment with Dr. Lourens - she will be able to make small changes that will have a huge impact on your quality of life! K.B. Calgary, Alberta.
