"Dr. Menkes is personable, friendly and kind. More than that, he's a knowledgeable expert who was able to earn my trust and respect quite quickly.
I've been to a (different) dermatologist in the past for this rash I've had for 4 years now. The previous dermatologist dismissed me within a moment of seeing me saying it's an allergy. Dr Menkes took the time to talk with me about it and we've started a game plan to try to get rid of it.
I had inquired about a cosmetic procedure and he gave me his honest, professional opinion to not bother with the cosmetic procedures. This is unlike some doctors who would quickly compile a list of things for me to fix. I have a lot of respect for Dr Menkes' opinions against it."

I was always embarrassed about my large legs; now with lipo and cellulaze, I feel better than I was even at 20 yrs old! This is the best money I have ever spent, and it was for myself, and to think it took me 3 yrs to get up the courage to do it. My clothes fit so much better, and it's only been a month. Your team is so supportive and caring. Everyone from Dr. Menkes, nurses, and staff are so kind and always there to help and answer any questions. I cannot thank you enough!"

"A big thank you to Dr. Menkes. Your encouragement and support helped me make the decision to have a chin and partial facelift. It's been about 2 months since my procedure, and oh I love the results. When I look in the mirror, I see the woman I was intended to be. Gone are the jowls which made me look like my son's bull mastiff. The responses from friends and strangers are amazing.
I went to get my taxes done, and my accountant was amazed at how refreshed and unstressed I looked. His secretary insisted it must be my new hairstyle. Other responses included. "Oh my gosh, you look way too young to be retired." And, "I can't believe how youthful, rested, and calm you look. Retirement has done wonders for you."(It makes me wonder what I must have looked like before the cosmetic enhancement.)
I don't consider myself to be vain, but I love passing by a mirror and peeking at my reflection. Dr. Menkes is truly an Edward Scissor Hand, and you, Karen, are the angel that coordinates the wonderful results. I am very grateful to the doctor, you, and his entire staff."
" Dr. Soohoo and staff were very helpful, courteous and professional. I was seen within a reasonable time. I was called the day before to move my appt. up so I would not have to wait too long.
Dr. Soohoo treated my problem and answered my questions clearly and succinctly. I appreciated this very much! "

"My procedure (mini facelift and upper eyelid lift) had minor discomfort. I was impressed with how Dr. Menkes' staff worked hard to ensure that I was comfortable during the entire procedure. As a result, the time went by quickly, and I was very relaxed throughout. In terms of overall discomfort, I'd much rather have more cosmetic surgery with Dr. Menkes, than some upcoming dental work! Thanks again to your entire staff for helping to make this go so smoothly, and for the great results!
I had a wonderful experience at your Clinic. Rachel administered the IPL to my face and neck. The results are a great improvement. The redness on my neck has almost completely disappeared. I can go out with my shirt unbuttoned, and have no concerns. My face is also very much improved, the cheek redness is only visible when I'm working in the sun, and most everyone else has color then too. I greatly appreciate the comprehensive time and care spent. I highly recommend this Clinic and its doctors to anyone interested in the best professional knowledge and care the Bay Area has to offer. I will definitely use the Clinic again for all my further treatments. My business associates would do well to take advantage of such a top rate practice. I highly recommend this Clinic to anyone wishing to look their best, in front of, or behind the camera."

"I love that Dr. Soohoo gets to the point and makes a plan. The visits are quick but not rushed.
I live in Los Gatos and know I have many choices here for care. I do not mind making the drive to the Menkes Clinic because I feel the office is State of the Art and very efficient. "

Insurance billings with."

"Was Great. Doctor looked me over and assured me I had no problem."
"I was preparing to move to a tropical location and didn’t want to be self conscious about my arms in bathing suits and sleeveless tops. The procedure was really easy, not at all painful. Afterwards, I only took Tylenol the first night. I'm so thrilled with the improvement in just 10 days. I know my arms will continue to improve over the next few months, but I’m already more confident about my new wardrobe options. Great job by Dr. Menkes and I received wonderful care by the entire staff!"
"Thanksgiving is here! Gone is the turkey gobbler! Yes I did it, at age 70, I decided it was time. After having a few consultations with doctors who wanted to change my entire face and put me under general anesthesia, I decided on Dr. Menkes because no one tried to talk me into other procedures and no general anesthesia. All went so well, the staff was so supportive and I am very happy with the results. I'd be happy to share my experiences."
"My mini-lift had amazing results. My jowls were gone, jawline is now defined and lifted. The Fraxel erased the lines around my mouth. I look and feel years younger. I only wish I had done it sooner."
"Dr. Menkes and his entire staff make a world of difference from start to finish—making cosmetic surgery more pleasant and easier than I ever expected. Customer service and satisfaction are second to none—it feels like a "big family" who truly care about their patients. The post-up flowers "the best is yet to come" was a very special touch and appreciated. Thank you very much!"
"Fabulous! Did not have to go into hospital. Clean surgical office with great nursing and attendants team. Dr. Menkes has a great "bedside" manner, making you feel comfortable."
"Dr. Menkes suggested Sculptra for me and I was reluctant to try it but did. It has really improved my facial appearance after three sessions! Thanks Dr. Menkes."
"Deciding to do the lipo and BOTOX® was one of my best decisions. Dr. Menkes and his staff were very knowledgeable, courteous, friendly and supportive in pre-and-post procedures. They are keen on following up and objectively evaluating results and explaining all the available options. Thank you Dr. Menkes and staff."
"My daughter's wedding was 5 months away and I needed to look my best for all those pictures that would be taken. I am 60 years old and noticed a lot of volume gone from my face. I decided to have Sculptra treatments by Dr. Andrew Menkes and I'm so glad I did! Pictures were taken before the treatment and I had 3 vials the first visit. 5 weeks later, on my follow-up visit, the pictures were brought up on the computer so we could compare the difference. It was unbelievable! I had to look twice in the mirror and back at the computer because I couldn't believe how dramatic the results were. My temples, areas around the nose, mouth and cheeks were obviously filled out. I had a 4th vial that day and after several weeks my younger look was amazing. I am getting so many compliments on how great I look – even from the guys in the office! They thought I lost weight or did something different with my hair! It's wonderful!
Sculptra's gradual results are so subtle and gave me the confidence I needed to step in front of the camera! Of course the product is nothing without the artist – Dr. Menkes. His skill and knowledge of Sculptra is exceptional. I highly recommend Sculptra and Dr. Menkes. Together they are a genie in a bottle!"
"Thanks so much for the special treatment I received when I had my 'Menkes Miracle Makeover."
"My friends think I look great. My family is amazed at how my attitude has changed and I feel like a new person."
"My liposuction procedure was a great success. I checked around and Dr. Menkes was someone I could really put my faith in. It all paid off. I feel so much better about myself now."
"Thank you for your wonderful care and the new body."
"Thanks to Dr. Menkes, my eyelift surgery not only improved my vision, but also improved my personal appearance. I'm very pleased."
"Dear Front Desk, Lily, Melony, Rachel, Karen, and Megan: I just wanted to thank you for all your patience, understanding, sympathy and dedication."
"I went to a Labor Day Barbecue at a neighbor’s home. I was talking to a lady about how expensive it was living in the bay area. I told her in 3 years I was going to retire and move to Austin, Texas. She said, Oh, I hope you have enough savings because you won't be able to collect social security until your 62! And I said "I'll be 62 in three years!" She said, "No way, I thought you were around my age", which is 46. Thanks Dr. Menkes. "
"I wanted to personally thank everyone for making my procedure an overall great experience. More important, you far exceeded my expectations relating to my results. To say the outcome is amazing is an understatement."
"I must say I was nervous when I first contemplated surgery with Dr. Menkes. Would it hurt? Would I look afterwards like I'd had plastic surgery? The answer to the latter is "NO"; no one can tell anyone has done anything. Dr. Menkes' work is careful and subtle. The results are very natural."
A Happy Patient
