Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:

EDitor’s UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to MedLaserDepot for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Report’s discussions with MedLaserDepot have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. MedLaserDepot listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

MedLaserDepot’s owner, Samuel David, "Our extensive experience has taught us how not only to buy the best equipment, but how to sell equipment in a VERY competitive market segment. [continued below]....
..... Selling good equipment starts with BUYING good equipment. Our depth of relationships within the industry, allows us to choose the best equipment for resale. This ensures our customers (you); get the very best equipment available on today’s market. MedLaserDepot.com is a company that has a very focused effort to sell high end lasers and cosmetic equipment, to both dealers, and end users. MedLaserDepot.com is positioned to buy and sell late model equipment, our sources include banks, repossession firms, manufacturers’ representatives, and end users. We typically purchase, and re-sell equipment. We will however also broker in some unique situations. Regardless, all equipment is full serviced, and certified prior to resale.

We treat our customers as the most important part of our business, as they are. We try to add as much value as we can wit consultative sales, and assisting thru the sales process and after. We have added a few new layers of customer service to assist in addressing customer issues with a methodical process. We also have a newly focussed process thats puts the customer first, regardless of the origin of the issue. Even post-warranty, and patient treatment questions.”

MedLaserDepot is Ripoff Report Verified
Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

MedLaserDepot is a company specializing in selling off-lease, repossessed and traded-in cosmetic lasers and equipment. Primary customers for these products are physicians, medical spas, and dealers. MedLaserDepot’s business consists of approximately 40% export, and 60% domestic. Leads are typically acquired through internet searches and advertising, with approximately 80% of their customer base coming to them this way. Other sources of leads include trade publications and mailers.

The typical sales process at MedLaserDepot begins with a new potential customer contacting the team at MedLaserDepot to inquire about their available products. A sales representative will discuss the inventory with the customer and at that point, the customer will decide if he or she would like to view the equipment. Local customers are able to view the equipment in the showroom, while customers who are farther away or overseas have the option of viewing the equipment via Skype, Facetime, or other video messaging service. Shipping services are also available, and MedLaserDepot assists in arranging the shipping for both domestic and international orders.

MedLaserDepot Customer Complaint Resolution Services

"At times, a customer may not feel satisfied with the service or product they received. Most often, if a customer is unhappy and lodges a complaint, it is regarding the shipping time of the equipment. This is the case with a complaint posted to Ripoff Report. “[Our] equipment is repossessed or off-lease, which is explained in the shipping terms. It could be a week or a month, depending on the time spent on paperwork. [It is] all dependent upon where the equipment is located,” explains Samuel Lehrer, a representative of MedLaserDepot. In this case, “[the] customer decided to issue a complaint via Ripoff Report. The issue may have been resolved if allowed some more time, but a refund was issued to the customer,” states Mr. Lehrer.

Since receiving the complaint on Ripoff Report, MedLaserDepot has taken several steps to improve their sales process and avoid customer complaints in the future. They have begun issuing a disclaimer to all their customers at the beginning of the sale process stating that shipping may take up to a month, depending on the location and status of the equipment. “[We] also make sure to keep the clients updated on the shipment. Which, understandably, can make the clients upset when hearing it may take longer than expected,” states Mr. Lehrer. They have also lifted some of their more rigid policies that were in place regarding refunds and credits, making them more available to the customer if the situation warrants it, and are striving to be as clear as possible throughout the sales process.

Mr. Lehrer and the rest of the team at MedLaserDepot recognize the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, and the platform it provides for businesses and clients to interact and resolve issues. “This will give us a chance to eliminate negative feedback,” states Mr. Lehrer.

MedLaserDepot / Statements from the owner Samuel David

"We also work on individual requests for specific pieces of equipment. Many buyers have specific requirements that may not be met with current/immediate inventory status. We do however have the ability to search our specific requests, for discriminating buyers. You tell us what you want, we’ll find, fast, and at a fair price. There are a lot of choices in today’s market. We look forward to the opportunity to help you make the RIGHT choices. Whether you buy from us, or somewhere else, we are always available to assist.”

MedLaserDepot Customer Testimonials

"Today we received the Laser machine and I wanted to take the time to thank you for all your help. It has been a great pleasure working with you. Your team is great to work with especially Ulysses, Juan David and your drivers. All very nice, patient and willing to help with anything. Everyone has been extremely friendly and very helpful. I am happy to say that I received the machine with great timing. And giving us a free loaner is something NOBODY has even done for us. You saved our lives, we would have lost so many patients. You provided me with great service since day one. After several bad experiences with the past with outher repair companies I have tried, I can finally say with all honesty that I am very happy and content with my results. Thank God I found you and again I am very pleased with your services. I wish you the best of luck and we will definitely have a good business relationship where we can always count with each other. Thank you again and have a blessing day :)" ~ Odalys, IdeaLaser Cosmetic Center - Miami, FL

MedLaser</><br><br> <span style="We recently had a VERY harrowing experience purchasing a star-Lux 500. We contacted MedLaser, and I spoke with David. Regarding what we were looking for, and various configurations the Palomar lasers offer. He was very knowledgeable, and I was really impressed with the time he spent, and his help in guiding me into just the right machine. We had already demo’d the equipment with the local Palomar rep, and we found David to be more knowledgeable than the actual Palomar rep. So needless to say we were ready to buy (more than 50% off). We signed the contract, and we were ready to take deliver. When the local Palomar rep (I will not give his name) found out we bought a used laser, he was quite upset. The next day we received phone call from the rep, telling us the laser we were purchasing had a lien on it. He also said some very disparaging things about buying used equipment, and David. I hung up the phone, and I was super nervous. I contacted David, and shared my concerns. He was very understanding and helpful, he assured me this was simply a way to try and sell new lasers, and he would get the necessary documentation I needed from the bank. After researching the serial number, we came to find out that only was there no “lien,” but the system was NEVER EVEN FINANCED, the original owner had paid, in full, on his American Express). I was given a copy of the statement, and a letter from the previous owner (I have even attached a copy of that actual American Express bill from the previous owner, there was no way to fake that). I have to say I was ready to cancel my order when I hung up the phone with the local rep, and really tempted to just buy the new laser. However my husband and I figured we would wait and see what documents came back, and when we saw them, we were REALLY supervised. EVERYTHING that was said was fabricated… Even more disturbing was how VERY badly they spoke about David and his company. I was disgusted at the lies, and believe me I made it known. I am writing this only to share what I have experienced, I cannot speak for others, but I definitely had a good experience with David, AND saw firsthand, how really difficult they made it for David. So that’s my story. Long, but it was an experience to say the least. We have since bought some additional hand pieces, and all has been fine. We did have one break, they fixed it, and so far so good.” ~ Angel Turlington

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

------------------------------

Medlaserdepot The Laser Outlet Sells Equipment the don't have. Will not give refund of money or send working product. Internet

Bought Emax Laser from this place back in August.  Took forever for them to get it together to ship to me.  Upon arrival, they only sent one of the three handpieces that we paid for and one hanpiece holder did not even fit this model.  The laser was dirty as well.  That handpiece didn't work.  Medlaserdepot sent me a different one and that handpiece did not work. We have yet to be able to test the unit to see if it even fires, let alone use it on a patient.  We have since discussed a screen issue which we were told did not exist when they sent it.  They said they had video.  We requested to see the laser video, but now their computer that handles the videos has crashed.  Odd.  Two months and no hand pieces to use the unit, we don't know if the unit works.  They refuse to take the system back, they are still selling this unit with the handpieces to other ebay buyers but refuse to give me my "nearly new" handpieces.

Ugh, here we go again

AUTHOR: Roxie - ()

So since my last posting, the handpiece has broken and been in their possession for two months.  They claim to be waiting for a repossession of someone else's item to send it to me. Really?  This information has only recently been provided to me after hounding them daily with calls and emails.  Looks like small claims court!

Medlaserdepot Replaces Unit!!

AUTHOR: Roxie - ()

Since my last post, not only has the issue been resolved, they sent us two additional pairs of laser safety goggles.  Been using the laser for a month now and it works perfectly.  We are so happy with all three of our working handpieces. 

The staff there have gone out of their way to make sure all is well on our end.  The owner even emailed and called several times over the last month to make sure there were no issues. 

I would recommend these people and plan to buy my next laser from them in June.  You can not beat their prices.

Unfair Attacks

AUTHOR: Laser Docs 24 - (United States of America)

I don't believe anything I read on these sites. I have actually bought 4 lasers from these people. The third laser did take longer than expected. We did however get all of them, and they have been pretty good about helping us. I have also purchased from other dealers (we are a chain), and not one has anything nice to say about the other. These sites are cesspools for gossip, and personally I don't give them much merit. Had I not actually done business with these people, I might have actually believed this stuff. 

Like the other poster wrote, always give the company a chance. I agree with him/her.

Positive Outcomes

AUTHOR: Legal Measure - (United States of America)

We contacted both of these customers, and both were addressed. One was give a free exchange, and the other was delivered successfully on the first delivery. 

We also were notified that one of the posts were placed by a third party (a competitive laser company), and the post was not approved by the customer.

#5 Consumer Suggestion

Med Laser Depot

AUTHOR: Robert - (United States of America)

I am having an eerily simlar issue with this company.   I thought at first they were grossly imcompetent but now think they are common thieves and running a scam.  I ran this by my attorney who said that Florida is rife with this type of consumer scam and as a state does little to prevent it.  

I am going to give them a week or so to make good on their claims and contractual obligations and then I will file my own separate complaint.  I have experience with driving some "bad Seeds" out of the cosmetic medicine industry in the past.  One suggestion is always include the names of the principal players.  They will often change the name of the company.  Med Laser Depot has done just that recently.  They were formerly the Laser Outlet.  Using the names of the CEO and company officers makes it more difficult to keep cropping up under a different name.  Go on medicalspamd.com.  There are 5000 physicians in aesthetic medicine who are eager to hear about the bad eggs in the industry.  

Be fair.  All companies make mistakes.  It is how they do or don't stand behind their services and products that separate honest mistakes from crooks.  Stand behind what you say.  Identify yourself, you have nothing to hide by telling the truth.  Name the names of the company officers of the offending companies.  They can and do change the names of the company when the heat is on.  This is the key to driving them out of the industry.
