Joshua Zeichner, MD, FAAD, Mary Lupo, MD

The aesthetic consultation is one of the most important factors in developing a successful long-term physician-patient relationship. It's essential to determine if you and your patient have matching goals for outcomes of treatment and time expected to see results, Mary Lupo, MD explains to DermTube Journal Club host Joshua Zeichner, MD. Once you determine a patient's expectations and lay out your “Aesthetic Plan,” you need to confirm they want to get on this path with you as their tour guide.
