  • "The economics in going with Ra Medical Systems’ Pharos make it a no-brainer."

    "Our Pharos excimer has been a real workhorse in our practice. Of all of the lasers in the office, it is one of the most used. I consider it indispensable. It's a must-have in the armamentarium of treating vitiligo and fills an important niche for many of our psoriasis patients. In the past we used a different excimer laser. The economics in going with Ra Medical Systems’ Pharos make it a no-brainer."

    Bill Halmi, MD - Arizona Advanced Dermatology, Gilbert, AZ
  • "I can't imagine practicing without it."

    "Even in the age of new oral systemic and biologic therapies, I find the excimer laser an extremely useful tool to have at my disposal. As an alternative to systemic therapy or a compliment to it, my patients love having another option at their disposal. Now that I have a Pharos laser in my armamentarium, I can't imagine practicing without it."

    Michael Sonabend, MD – Complete Dermatology, Sugar Land, TX
  • "The most profitable laser in our practice."

    "The Ra Medical Systems’ excimer laser has been the most profitable laser in our practice. It has exceeded our expectations on efficiency, clinical efficacy, and patient satisfaction."

    Nathan Trookman, MD - Colorado Springs Dermatology, Colorado Springs, CO
  • "Outstanding results delivered by this laser"

    "The Pharos laser has been a mainstay for treatment of resistant localized plaque psoriasis in our office for many years. We are on our third generation Pharos excimer laser from Ra Medical Systems and treatments are in high demand by our patient population who know the outstanding results delivered by this laser. We also use the excimer laser for the treatment of vitiligo, resistant eczemas, and hypopigmentation in scars and striae."

    David Vasily, MD – Lehigh Valley Dermatology, Bethlehem, PA
  • "Name the condition, Pharos excimer laser treats it."

    "I think the most important fact is that the Pharos excimer laser is not just for psoriasis.  It is beneficial for the treatment of atopic dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, lichen planus, alopecia, and parapsoriasis. We get very few insurance denials, most companies approve multiple treatments, and payments are substantial.  The machine is a workhorse in our office and maintenance is simple and worry free."

    Jack Murphy, MD – LaPlace Dermatology Clinic, LaPlace, LA
  • "Better Results than with the Other Excimer Laser"

    "I've been an excimer laser patient for a few years. Recently my physician switched from offering the other excimer laser to the Pharos laser and I am experiencing even better results.  My Pharos treatments not only provide quicker results but also an overall improvement in my condition. I now have the ability to use the Pharos laser in many more areas of concern.  With the other laser, I could only treat my scalp because my skin would darken if it was used on any exposed skin. With the Pharos, because it is specifically targets at the problem area, I am able to treat many more areas and not have an unsightly darkening of my skin.  And while the other laser was warm and at times, even hot while receiving treatment, the Pharos does not transmit any heat during treatment."

    Tracy M., Patient, Chicago, IL
  • "Best business and medical decision I have ever made."

    "We are very pleased with the laser and I think of it as one of the best business and medical decisions I have made."

    Scott Sanders, MD - Scott Sanders Dermatology, New York City, NY
  • "Financial benefits of the laser in practice"

    "The financial benefits are simply enormous. This is an insurance covered procedure and can generate a significant amount of revenue for your practice. In our particular practice, billings run an average $20,000 per month with this device, with a significant collection ratio. In addition, many patients will elect to pay for treatments themselves."

    David Vasily, MD – Lehigh Valley Dermatology, Bethlehem, PA
  • "Best Laser I Have"

    "It works extremely well and is a money maker for my practice.  It’s the best laser I have."

    Josiane Lederman, MD - Dermatology Associates, Staten Island, NY
  • "Having the excimer laser as part of our armamentarium against psoriasis has brought us many patients who are seeking a clinic that is state of the art"

    "I think it’s important to stay on top of new technology and having the excimer laser as part of our armamentarium against psoriasis has brought us many patients who are seeking a clinic that is state of the art, who has the latest treatments and new treatments for psoriasis and other diseases."

    Robert Beer, Robert Beer, MD – Balfour Dermatology, Brentwood, CA
  • "I am extremely pleased how effective the Pharos has been for my scalp psoriasis patients"

    "I am extremely pleased how effective the Pharos has been for my scalp psoriasis patients, especially those who have not responded to topical treatments. It has also been exceptionally effective for intertriginous lesions and vitiligo. The Pharos has been completely reliable in our high volume practice. Ra Medical's customer service and technical support responds immediately if you ever need them. Patients are very compliant with the twice weekly treatments for 6 weeks - much more so than with traditional booth phototherapy. Everything about the laser has been great."

    Jerry Bagel, MD - Winsor Dermatology and Psoriasis Treatment Center of Central New Jersey, Winsor, NJ
  • "I'll Sing Their Praises!"

    "A model vendor. I will sing their praises to my peers anytime."

    Eitan Homa, MD – Dermatology Associates of the Bay Area, Hercules, CA
  • "Ra Medical Systems is an outstanding company"

    "Ra Medical Systems is an outstanding company. Over the years of ownership, we have had very few minor service issues with our laser and they have been handled rapidly, efficiently and without recurrence. The ownership experience with this particular laser system, as an owner of multiple laser systems over many years, has simply been exemplary and at the top of the list."

    David Vasily, David Vasily, MD – Lehigh Valley Dermatology, Bethlehem, PA
  • "It definitely works"

    "When I started treatments, about a quarter of my face was affected. Now, after 32 treatments, the treated areas are more than 85% repigmented. People who did not see me before cannot detect I ever had vitiligo. If I had vitiligo any other place, I would definitely get Pharos excimer laser treatments. It definitely works. There is no point trying anything else."

    Anonymous Patient, A.D. Dermatology Associates, Seattle, WA
  • "Efficient and simple operation."

    "We are enjoying our Pharos laser and are happy with the efficiency and simpler operation. Patients are also happier than with our previous excimer laser."

    Usha Sood, MD - Harper Dermatology Laser Beauty Center, Roseville, MI
  • "My go-to treatment for dyshidrotic eczema"

    "It’s one of my go-to treatments for dyshidrotic eczema and other types of eczema, especially when it’s located in small areas. These people suffer for years and it’s so hard to control. Many of them work with their hands or even just computer work and it can be so itchy and so disturbing for these patients. They may have tried diets and things for months and even years at a time. But with a few treatments of the laser, it’s amazing the amount of remission I get with these patients."

    Robert Beer, MD – Balfour Dermatology, Brentwood, CA
  • "Wicked Happy"

    "Wicked happy with the laser and the company."

    Theodore Daly, MD – Garden City Dermatology, Garden City, NY
  • "Won’t harm healthy skin"

    "We’ve used traditional light therapy for psoriasis treatment for a long time, but the Pharos will allow us to treat the patient with fewer sessions that reach deeper in the affected skin. However, because only the psoriasis plaques are treated, we won’t harm healthy skin around them."

    Malinee Saxena, MD - My Dermatologist, Inver Grove Heights, MN
  • "The excimer laser is very efficient"

    "Patients who are excellent candidates for the excimer laser are patients with more localized plaque psoriasis of elbows, knees, buttocks, or as an add-on adjunctive therapy after full body NB UVB exposure in our phototherapy box. The excimer laser is very efficient in clearing flexural crease psoriasis, as well as resistant psoriasis of the scalp and genital areas. We often use it in combination with an optimized topical regimen such as steroids and vitamin D3 foams."

    David Vasily, David Vasily, MD – Lehigh Valley Dermatology, Bethlehem, PA
  • "The only treatment that has ever worked for my scalp"

    "The Pharos is the only treatment that has ever worked for my scalp. I've tried injections, creams, shampoos, oral medications, and none of it worked. But, since I started the laser treatments, my scalp has cleared more than 85%. There is no pain or side-effects."

    Gary D., Patient, Riverside, CA
  • "No more steroids for my patients."

    "Our practice is the first in Milpitas to offer the state-of-the-art Pharos excimer laser therapy for psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis. The Pharos is painless, there is no downtime, and treatments are often covered by insurance. Laser treatments are ideal for difficult to treat areas including the elbows and knees, hands and feet, and scalp. My patients love it. They tell me that the laser sessions fit into their lifestyle and they appreciate being freed from the burden of applying steroids several times every day. Patients begin to see results after only a few sessions and enjoy much greater self-esteem and a higher quality of life."

    Katherine Hong Do, MD - Katherine Hong Do Dermatology, Milpitas, CA
  • "Excellent results."

    "We have had excellent results using the Pharos to treat patients."

    Arlo Miller, MD – Miller Family Dermatology, Issaquah, WA
  • "Remission of psoriasis for up to 6 months"

    "Fortunately, our dermatologists are well-versed in psoriasis and the many treatments available. Our practice is one of a few that offers Pharos excimer laser treatments, which deliver focused narrowband UVB light that can provide remission of psoriasis for up to 6 months."

    Franziska Ringpfeil, MD – Ringpfeil Advanced Dermatology, Haverford, PA
  • "Less expensive than renting."

    "If you are renting an excimer, you might find it's actually less expensive to purchase the Pharos device."

    Jerome Potozkin, MD, Danville, CA
  • "The new Pharos laser is extremely fast"

    "The new Pharos laser is extremely fast with treatments times approximately one-half that of our previous unit. In addition, the unit runs at a much cooler level, allowing you to keep the unit in a reasonably sized space without overheating patients, staff, or the device itself."

    David Vasily, David Vasily, MD – Lehigh Valley Dermatology, Bethlehem, PA
  • "Favorite treatment for localized psoriasis plaques."

    "One of my favorite treatments for localized psoriasis plaques is the targeted excimer laser."

    Charles Camisa, MD – Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, Naples, FL
  • "No more buying codes or paying rent."

    "I would be happy to be a reference for the Pharos laser. Our patients love it and no more buying codes or paying rent."

    Mary Sue Parent, Practice Manager - Brighton Dermatology and Regenesis, Brighton, MI
  • "I am experiencing remission for the first time in my life."

    "I've had moderate psoriasis since I was a child. My doctor told me he could help me achieve remission with the Pharos excimer laser. I was skeptical, but now, for the first time in 10 years, I can wear short-sleeves and a bathing suit. I am experiencing remission for the first time in my life."

    Marilyn R., Patient, Encino, CA

    Dr. Jacobson's daughter is 8 years old and has suffered from scalp psoriasis for 2 years. Despite twice-daily intensive topical treatments and medications prescribed by her dermatologist mom, her psoriasis continued to worsen. She had itchy, scaly sores on her scalp and behind her ears that she constantly scratched. Most days she was pretty uncomfortable and often distracted at school because of her psoriasis. Knowing that the next step had to be taken, Dr. Jacobson chose to treat her daughter with the Pharos excimer laser. After just 3 weeks of treatment with the Pharos, Dr. Jacobson's daughter had…...
