My name is Dorothy and I’ve been with The Geldner Center for over 10 years. I began as a Marketing Consultant, then a Patient Representative, then became a Patient Coordinator, which is my current role. Before my tenure at The Geldner Center I was working in corporate banking for 10 years.
As a corporate banker I learned the intricacies of building effective client relationships in both management and sales. I then launched my first business, a boutique marketing and public relations agency. I gained invaluable experience about being an entrepreneur.
The best part of my job is working closely with Dr. Geldner, who is one of the best, most talented and internationally recognized Plastic Surgeons. Patients often tell me how much they appreciate Dr. Geldner’s integrity, honesty, compassion, and the time he dedicates to each and every patient.
I love seeing patients who are very excited when scheduling their surgical procedures and then when the patient is absolutely thrilled with their results.
- My favorite procedures are Breast Augmentations and abdominoplasties.
- My favorite non-invasive procedures are fillers and botox.
- Let’s not forget about skincare — my favorite product line is SkinCeuticals.
- Two things I can’t live without: rice cakes and a great exfoliating toner.

Hello! My name is Heather and I have been a Licensed Esthetician since 2011.
The best part of my job is that I get to help people feel and look like the best versions of themselves. There is no better feeling than helping someone feel confident in their own skin!
What I love most about working at TGC is: I love working for a practice that cares about its patients and staff. The moment I walked into The Geldner Center I was not only amazed by how clean and elegant the place looked, but also by how inviting it felt! I knew from the moment I walked in that I wanted to work here! I get to come in every day and work alongside amazing minds and kind hearts.
My favorite non-surgical procedure is: This would be a tie between microneedling and Ultherapy! Both yield amazing results! When combined, they complement each other beautifully and can have a really positive change on someone’s perspective of themselves!
My favorite time of the day: I don’t have a favorite time of the day. Every day is filled with moments that are vastly different from one another. Some moments are effortless while others are challenging. It is the variation of those moments and the people within my life that allow me to constantly work on becoming a better version of myself and to never stop learning!
What I can’t live without: Aside from my family… Sunscreen! — I have been labeled the ‘Sunscreen Queen’ on many occasions by my friends and family. Our skin is our first line of defense against just about everything around you. It is so important to have a good skincare routine that includes sunscreen in the mix!
The greatest part about working with Dr. Geldner is hearing his perspective on procedures and products. He is extremely knowledgeable and there is a lot you can learn from him. Not only does he gave a great mind, but he is also one of the kindest and most honest plastic surgeons I have ever met! He truly cares about his staff and his patients!
Hi! My name is Ellie. I am a medical aesthetician at The Geldner Center. I have practiced in the aesthetic industry for several years. My favorite part about working at The Geldner Center is helping patients achieve their skincare goals. Personally, I struggled with acne as a young teen and learning about different skin treatments and products during my journey as an aesthetician has made me more passionate about the industry and how I can help patients achieve their goals. One of my favorite treatments in general and for acne is the VI Peel. It has been one of the most effective treatments for me and for many of my patients. Working at The Geldner Center has also increased my love for injectables and cosmetic procedures. I can see how patients truly feel better about themselves after their treatment and procedures. It’s as if they have a new outlook on life. I also love the effects of botox on fine lines and how it affects the look of aging. Lip filler to give a natural looking plumped lip is also one of my personal favorites.
