Meet Nurse Wendy

Wendy Van Giezen

Wendy van Giezen, BSN, RN is a registered nurse who specializes in non-surgical treatments with a focus on injectables, laser therapies, and radiofrequency skin tightening.

Wendy works in collaboration with Dr. Westreich to provide non-invasive techniques that complement and enhance the surgical side of our practice. Wendy has been trained by Dr. Westreich in order to provide consistency and reproducible results in advanced non-surgical techniques across the practice.

Wendy graduated from The University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. She is a NYC native who moved back to New York in 2018 and joined Dr. Westreich’s practice after several years working abroad in China, Taiwan, and the Netherlands. Wendy currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband Andreas. Wendy’s interest in aesthetics began in high school when she sought professional treatment for severe acne and scarring.

A lot of trial, error, lasers, and microneedling treatments helped her feel comfortable in her own skin. She credits professional treatments and the Skin Better Science product line for helping her look her best and feel comfortable without makeup. As someone who is highly allergic to many skincare products and makeup, Wendy loves to educate her patients and help them find individualized solutions for their skin.

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 25th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we have been closed since March 19th and will continue to close the practice until April 20th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until April 6th.
  • Key staff members are working remotely to provide clinical patient support and re-scheduling options
  • Only urgent post-surgical follow-ups will be seen by Dr. Westreich and full PPE will be worn. These will be decided on a case by case basis and limited to 1 patient at a time.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • All elective surgeries are rescheduled until after April 20th
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. When we reopen to patients, we will continue to follow these practices. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • We are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
