Ageless, the Center for Rejuvenation - Dr. Barbara Schell MD


A very confusing experience at Ageless. 7/30/2007

So I called to schedule an appointment with Dr. Schell at Ageless, a medical spa near my home in Fremont. I had a small raised nodule on my temple and wanted a certified dermatoligist to look at it for diagnosis and possible removal. I was thinking a dermatoligist with an emphasis in cosmetic surgery would be a good idea since the nodule was on my face. If removal was necessary, appearance would be a consideration. I was told by the person who answered the phone that Dr. Schell does not take a patient until the patient has seen ANOTHER dermatologist for a diagnosis. When I pointed out that the web site indicated Dr. Schell is a board certified dermatologist who appeared competent to make a diagnosis, I was told "thats not the way we do it here". So I called 3 other dermatology offices to schedule an apointment, each of which explained that it would be a month and a half until a Dr. could see me. So lets say I wait a month and a half to see a dermatologist. I'm thinking, all this time, if it is actually skin cancer, its growing all this time. (While every dermatology site you read says "SEE A DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY IF YOU HAVE WARNING SIGNS"). But, not being a dermatologist, I don't know what this nodule actually IS. But, hey, I'm worried. And now it looks like I'll have to wait for a month and a half ! So I'm thinking, maybe I'm missing something here. Is Ageless a Spa or a MEdical facility. Or is it a Spa that only takes cosmetic cases. I don't know what it is. So the bottom line is, I still don't know what this little nodule is on my face and I don't know what Ageless is up to either. Spa or Clinic.? Clinic or Spa. Its confusing. But then, what do I know ? more
