I had contacted LASER & DERMATOLOGY INSTITUTE during the Summer concerning treatment for my teenager for an extremely tough and persistent acne condition that has lasted for over 4 years now. The results have been nothing less than outstanding! Dr. Rispler has been very considerate and detailed in explaining the most advanced and most innovative options available in route to achieving the best outcome possible, and the results have shown it. I am very thankful to the nursing staff and office personnel as they have always been very kind and professional. There are still a few sessions of treatment to go, but I confide and have complete trust in the doctor’s medical training and over 30 years of expertise in the field of Dermatology, and the ability of his staff. From a grateful parent, thankyou Dr. Rispler!

I found out about LDI and Dr. Rispler through a spot on the radio. I had some problems with acne that I felt I needed to deal with, so I made up my mind to come in and have a closer look. I loved what I saw, the people there were great and the doctor was too. He’s got some great experience, I believe he’s been practicing since the 1970’s. I guarantee you’ll be amazed at the things that he can do. I had such amazing results that my family and friends have also come in to have some work done as well. Can’t say anything bad about LDI, the whole time I was just great and enjoyed the experience greatly. The staff was very kind and treated me in a very professional manner. They helped me get rid of some very bad acne and scars and for that I will always give thanks to this great team. I recommend completely, they helped me improve my face and I’m sure they can do the same for others. I bet that they can do some pretty amazing things with these lasers. Definitely worth checking out.

I’ve never written a review before, but Dr. Rispler is truly unbelievable. I’m a father of 3 girls, and he literally changed the lives of my 2 oldest daughters. I feel indebted to him more than anyone else outside our family. My daughters had acne so bad that it hurt me every minute of the day to think they had to walk around high school with their faces covered in sores. My wife and I were assertive and tried every over-the-counter medication possible, and then, went to 4 different dermatologist for help…and ended up with prescriptions that did nothing… I mean nothing. Out of despiration, my wife heard a radio ad and took my oldest daughter to Dr. Rispler without telling me. I’m an attorney, and when I found out I was livid, thinking some Dr. was taking advantage of our heartache by making false claims and charging us a lot of money (my wife pre-paid for 8 laser treatments). I told my wife to take photos and keep notes of the progress, or lack thereof, because I would be using this evidence in my lawsuit against him for false advertising. Well, Dr. Rispler’s treatments worked like miracle beams taking away the sores, redness, and inflammation. Within a couple of months, her life…our lives changed. She went from walking around campus with her head down, hidden behind her hair, to a vivacious confident girl with bangs. She excelled from that moment on. Of course, we sent my 2nd daughter to Dr. Rispler and he did it again. Outside of love, this was the best gift we could have given our daughters. Thank you so much Dr. Rispler.

Went in today for a free consultation at the Covina location, got quoted and started the treatment for my acne and acne scarring the same day. So far i do not have any complaints. The staff were very friendly and the nurse explained everything in great detail. Dr. Rispler came in and evaluated my face for the treatment that needed to be done for today, I did not find him rude at all. I like how the office gives out samples of the medications, topical creams and face washes instead of purchasing the full size and finding out later it did not react as well with your skin condition. Lastly, The laser and shots are not painful at all.. very tolerable, i am looking forward to my next appointment and great results. Thank you L.D.I

I started seeing Dr. Rispler a year ago and at first, never believed in his surgery-free approach, but he definitely beat my expectations. He and his staff were very professional, and always listened to my questions. Dr. Rispler planned out the most specific treatment plans, which treat my unique skin type, tone, and color. I am approaching my 50s, so those wrinkles are coming. Thankfully, I now have a dermatologist I can call for treatments without surgery.

I have been treated by Doctor Rispler a fews ago when I was a firefighter in San Gabriel Valley. I was burned on the job and he treated my burns very well. I can’t thank him enough for a full recovery and looks like it never happend. I was glad to hear that he had openened an office in Irvine and coincidentally my daughter needed acne treatment. We responded to an online ad for acne treatment and to my happy surprise, he is the Doctor that is famously treating acne and acne scars. Definitely serendipitous and I couldn’t have been happier. I thought for sure that it probably wasn’t the same Doctor from Covina, but it was and of course I signed my daughter right up. As expected, he did a great job for my daughter’s face. I asked him if the acne treatment was really permanent. He said in most cases it is, but my daughter will have hormonal issues that may try to flare up some acne here and there, but not to worry it will get better. Terrific Doctor and the office staff is remarkable. I would highly recommend the Laser and Dermatology Institute to any person out there. The Doctor is extremely good at treating skin problems. The nurses were extremely great people. Mind you that this office runs like a real medical office, they are sharp people and always alert. My daughter was very comfortable because the entire staff was always on their toes and was always on cue. Definitely there was no confusion in this office whatsoever. Confusion in a medical office would say to me something very bad is going on. But Doctor Rispler is a very good captain of this well run ship. Thanks.

WAIT! YOU HAVE TO READ THIS TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY If you are reading these reviews, then you are like me. I wanted to make sure that this company was good before I went in for their free consultation. LET ME SAVE YOU THE TIME AND MONEY. At their consultation, I didn’t like their pricing and thought that they were ripping me off. Let me tell you what is really a rip off; getting services that don’t work. I was like you shopping around and I bought services from 2 different places: one place claimed to be a dermatologist and another was a MEDSPA. I wasted a ton of money on those places to find that there is a major difference between laser treatments and lasers. The real waste of time and money was committing to 6 months of time and 8 laser treatments from a company that pretends to have comparable laser. Oh yes, the other places were really nice people until your last treatments they can’t wait to kick you out the door. I know the treatments were sub par now because my acne scars were not reduced or improved at all. Who cares about great customer service when you still have acne scars. I would rather have results. I came back to these people to get it done from them and yes my acne scars improved with only 4 treatments. You will see for yourself when you go to the other places. Let me warn you that other places are using their name to sell you sub grade services and lasers at even a cheaper price and that is what you are getting; a cheaper laser treatment. If you ask me, I can see for myself that a few negative reviews were written by those other places to fool you and me. By the way, I was not the only one that went here to fix what the other places screwed up. During my visits, I have heard of several people coming from other places complaining about their services from even the places that I have visited. I am not an unusual case. Those other places are just scam. Look, do you go to a DENTIST to FIX YOUR EYES? Then why would you go to anybody else besides a dermatologist to fix your skin? It just makes sense right? For me NOW it does. I didn’t think before and I was screwed. So don’t get screwed. And if you want laser treatments, you have to go to a place that specializes with lasers. Honestly, the treatments are not that cheap. If you can’t afford it right now, then don’t go to the free consultation. Even if you want to finance the treatments, you have to know that it is really what you want and ready to make payments every month to pay off your treatments. My credit is good and so I did the financing and I am finally happy with my treatments. So really do your research about these companies. You will see what I am talking about. Good Luck!

  • A few months ago I had my FREE consultation at Laser and Dermatology Institute. I met with one of the consultants first and thought he is extremely knowledgeable & professional. After I met with the consultant I felt confident to start treatment that same day. Dr. Rispler is one of the smartest dermatologist I’ve ever met. I asked tons of questions and he was very patient with me and answered every question I had. Dr. Rispler explained to me that it would take 6-8 treatments to laser off my facial hair permanently. After the consultation I was super exited to get started. I had my first laser hair removal treatment at the Covina office. A nurse named Teresa did my first treatment she was very gentle. She numbed my face and gave me some protective goggles for my eyes and she explained into detail what she was doing. She zapped my face with the laser a few times and I was done. OMG, I was so surprised that I was done with my first laser treatment so fast. The lasers felt like warm tiny stings on my face but it was virtually painless. I’m looking foward to my future laser treatments.. So far I’m extremely satisfied with Dr. Rispler and his staff. I highly recommend LDI to anyone.

  • I heard about Laser and Dermatology on KIIS FM so I decided to go in for my free consultation. I had been thinking of getting tattoo removal quite sometime just couldn’t afford the prices I was getting quoted in the orange county area. Anyway so the consultation was in Covina and let me start off by saying it was very worth my time. I went in and had my tattoo looked and spoke with Dr. Rispler he told me how many sessions I needed and advised me as well that It would not be painful and of course I did mention the cost which wasn’t a problem Dr. Rispler had payment options for me so it wasn’t like I had to pay in full so that was a big yes to me. I left the consultation ready to go back and begin treatment. First day of treatment I was super nervous all I could think about how painful It would be, the nurse started me up with numbing cream and I waited for about 45min to let the numbing kick in. Let me say Dr. Rispler made my first laser session easy and fast it was not painful as I assumed it would of been the numbing cream helped me bunches. My first session went well I’d say 70% of my tattoo was removed which I was so happy and eager to go back knowing that my next session would be even better! I’m on my 4th session and it is my last and my tattoo is completely gone. I am so happy with the results of LDI and the staff there they made is so easy and comforting plus affordable for me as well. I’m definitely going back to have acne treatment as well. Dr. Rispler and his staff at Covina are amazing and made me one happy patient.

I never had a problem with Dr. Rispler. He knows exactly what to do, and doesn’t need surgery to do it! My time and money are not wasted with him, especially since I can get scheduled in without having to wait. He was a wonderful, experienced team that is very welcoming. He never prescribes any medicine and doesn’t try to make a sale. The staff consistently kept a check on my comfort and made sure I had everything I need. The parking wasn’t too bad and the whole area was very accessible. I never had any hassles getting there. I have seen Dr. Rispler for four years and am happy with all the improvements my skin has seen.

I came in for a free consultation for my wrist tattoo I was trying to remove. I had been looking around at various tattoo removal options and searched the internet for hours to find the right place for me and settled on a place in Irvine named Laser and Dermatology Institute. Let me start by saying that absolutely love this place! The staff is super friendly and they make you feel welcomed. Dr. Rispler is one of the best dermatologist I’ve ever met he listens and is very kind to you. My experience with this office has been nothing but pleasant. =) My tattoo is relatively small. I’ve had 3 treatments so far and my tattoo is almost completely gone I couldn’t be happier with my results and I recommend LDI to anyone looking for a tattoo removal place like I was. I’m just so thrilled about my experience with LDI and wanted to share my tattoo removal journey with all of you! 🙂 thanks for taking the time to read my review!
