Believe it or not not everything about Empire Medical Training has been said.  I feel it is my duty to let everyone know ecactly what kind of dispicable people work there and what kind of company it really is.  

1.  When you attend medical training and visiting their spa (VIP Aesthetics) you are NOT getting Botox!! You are being injected with saline solution. Cosentino only uses real Botox on himself and his family.  We were instructed to tell people it was "diluted for training purposes" but, in fact it was only saline.  

2.  Care about public safety? Empire doesn't! They continue to hide medical waste in regular garbage bags and illegally dump them in regular trash cans.  Until they get around to illegally dumping them They throw them in a closet in the back of the office. 

3.  William "Bill" Horninger....what a creep.  He continues to pretend he's a doctor when he's NOT!!! Bill travels every week with Empire and is having an affair with Dr Ann Roberts. Both parties are currently married.  

4. Stephen Cosentono...the worst of the worst.  Let's go over what he's really up to.  First of all he's broke and trying desperately to keep up his phony lifestyle.  He spends $12,000 per month on a house, an average of $10,000 a month at a hobby store and just to keep his gold digging wife from leaving him he gives her whatever money he does have to buy purses at Neiman Marcus.  He also continues to spend his money on watches, expensive dinners, wines, etcetera while HE DOES NOT PAY HIS EMPLOYEES!!!  His entire staff has left for greener pastures.  His sales department is one person, his IT and web dev department haa all abandoned him. he can only hire his family now because no one else will deal with this maniac.   Cosentino is also on a ton of hormones, pain medicines, and uppers.  In an effort to be more buff he fills his body with these drugs but the outcome has only been a chubby out of shape jerk.  

One more dispicable thing about Cosentino: this guy was so determined to hook up with (the girl who is now his wife) that he hired her (even though she's a HORRIBLE salesperson and has zero skills) that he was hitting on her at work even while she was married!!! Scumbag!!  He proceeded to upstage her former husband by buying extravagant gifts for her and her son...while she was married!!! Her husband was so distraught with this that he took his own life!!  Before his body was in the ground Cosentino continued to push himself on her.  She wanted nothing to do with him but after constant harassment she gave in. Basically Steve bought his wife because he had no other means of getting her close to him.  

This is the kind of company and people you are dealing with.

You begged these people to take these videos

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

You made the staff attending the conferences carry the video camera and take this videos so that you can use them against the ripoff reports.. We are not disgrutial employees cause I am sure every last one of us is much happier in life with you and your fraudulent company in it. You yelled screamed and through temper tantrums if we didnt beg patrons and particpates that came to conferences to do a quick interview. Half of them didnt even know the crap they were about to have to endure. So im sure the only thing we are worried about as ex employees is that no other single human being has to be treated the way you treat others.

The stories are true

AUTHOR: Dridcmd - ()

Dr Cosentino is VERY good at lying.  The stories you read are true.  He had a suspended license for his drug addiction to opiates several years back.  That forced him to sell his practice, Center for Pain Management.  He lied and said it was to raise funds for Empire Medical.  The purpose of his companies is to fund his pathetic lifestyle.  Exotic cars, boat, ridiclous house etc.  His irratic behavior is from his drug problem.  Steer VERY clear of this company or you will regret it at some point.

If you want reports from real doctors

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

It is very interesting to me that the person writing these rebuttals refer to Dr. Cosentino as "Dr. C", but then refers to being attacked in the first person. I'll venture to say that Dr. Cosentino himself is writing these rebuttals, and is in fact very afraid of the reputation he himself has built.

"Real videos"

The so-called real videos he speaks of, are doctored videos of the few people he could actually find that indeed liked one of his courses. I would know since I did film a couple of those myself. However the majority of physicians were not pleased with what they saw. If you want to hear what real physicians are saying about the company, do a Google search for Empire Medical Training, and that's it, the only positive reviews you'll find are from biased sources, either sites they put up themselves (I regretfully helped create some of them), such as www.empiremedicaltrainingreviews.com, or www.empiremedicaltrainingscams.com, or video testimonials from their YouTube channel.

Ask yourself...

Why do they have so many Ripoff Reports? Why do they have an F rating with the Better Business Bureau? Why are their employees so mad at this company?

Check unbiased sources

This is just an example of a few truthful reviews I found about Empire and Dr. Cosentino from a Medical (((link redacted))):

"I attended several simultaneous courses with Empire Medical and would caution you not to spend your money on this group's courses. I would never recommend them to anyone."

"After taking several courses in aesthetics and walking away dissapointed feeling I wasted my money (Empire for one)."

"I dont recommend Empire Medical Training, Dr. Constantino and his business partners are very unethical and the training you will get is not worth the money you paid."

These are the real reviews you should be looking for.

The disgruntled emplyees

As much as Dr. Cosentino would like to lie to himself and believe that his former employees are the bad guys and looking to harm his companies, he is the poison of his own business. If he had the ethics to treat both his employees and customers the right way, maybe he wouldn't have had to shut down his Marketing company. But Dr. Cosentino is always looking for the easy way out. Why would he provide a good service if he can bamboozle his customers with fake sales and fake promises? Why would he provide a secure and stress free work environment, if he can bitch and yell and get people to work for him for free, by having checks bounce, or simply promising to pay someone but never doing so.

Dr. Cosentino is a sad man, and it shows the state of his business when he's desperately accusing ethical people of stealing, when he's the only thief here. Maybe he can't see that he's stealing his customers or his employees when he offers no refunds, or gives an employee a check without funds, but the karma he's brought up on himself is quickly crumbling the very floor his standing on

Although he's bragging that his company is doing well, I don't think the owner of a company that is doing so well, despite the negative reviews, would waste their time arguing with so-called "disgruntled employees".

Watch the videos... HAHAHA

Which real life video testimonial should we watch? The one with Lauren Arsenau, AKA the head receptionist for Empire and Rx Medical Web? The same Lauren that is listed as a staff member on the VIP website?

Disgruntled Employee Attack against VIP

AUTHOR: Office Manager - ()

We thank our valued patients and clients for all their “TRUE AND REAL” testimonials which are publicly available on YOU TUBE. If you are looking for real reviews, just go to You Tube where you will see, real life, actual Video Testimonials not anonymous posts like this. For the malicious, disgruntled employee who wrote this, you are giving us the opportunity to share these videos as well as other real testimonials from patients with our readers and they will not be misled by your ridiculous comments.   

It is unfortunate to report that VIP had a separate company who performed marketing services and website design. We made the mistake of hiring web designers who were young kids with no education and no future, and after getting caught for stealing, incompetence, substandard work performance and much more, were terminated. Angry over losing their job, they began writing negative posts about our services. The posts are ridiculous, we are not involved in a money laundering or Ponzi scheme; I don’t even know what that is except what I have seen in movies.  For those of you who have read enough and realize this “anonymous post”is just a malicious attack, but still want to learn what real patients have to say, check out the YOU TUBE videos from ACTUAL, REAL LIFE PATIENTS.

For the writer of this post and anyone else interested, this group of recent terminated employees represents the bottom feeders of south Florida. For lack of a real job, they have nothing better to do, and I truly pity who they are. By the way, these individuals were not even employed by VIP and had nothing to do with VIP.  Our VIP  staff is comprised mostly of family members and close friends and is run by Dr. C, his wife Lorena and her sister Fiorella all licensed professionals.  Dr C being a board certified licensed physician and specialist in Aesthetics. In fact, Dr. C has trained thousands of physicians to perform the same aesthetic procedures such as Botox, Dermal Fillers, and laser procedures that we offer in our practice. . For the disgruntled unemployed who wrote this and are reading now, sorry to disappoint you but our medical practice is thriving and our patients truly appreciate our services and adore our staff. These anonymous statements mean nothing to our readers who are educated and smarter than you think. Incidentally, other than these anonymous posts, Dr. C has an impeccable reputation in the “real” medical community and has ZERO malpractice claims or actions from the Board of Medicine or any other governing agency which is actually rare for Physicians in South Florida with over 20 years experience in Medicine. Physicians come from around the country to learn his techniques and procedures in Aesthetics.

We are a pretty close family at VIP and invite anyone to visit our office to see how we help our patients and the colleagues of Dr. C.  For those of you who have met our staff, we thank you for all your positive reviews, written and video as well as in person. For new patients, I am sure you would only report positive things because our patients tell us that Lorena and Fiorella are very sweet, experienced, and very caring.

The writer of the negative post should be ashamed of himself to include these girls in his personal attack against me for his termination. Why not look to yourself and try to figure out why you were terminated, perhaps that may be more productive to help yourself rather than any short term pleasure you may get from trying to fool our readers searching for information. More importantly than my positive statements about our staff, WATCH THE YOU TUBE videos for actual, REAL LIFE VIDEOS taken from actual patients, not the anonymous statements you see here. For all our valued clients and patients, we thank you for your continued support and appreciation. To schedule a visit to our office or to meet our staff, feel free to call us at 954-358-2858.

Disgruntled Employee Lies

AUTHOR: Office Manager - ()

Sorry to put a stop to the drama and fiction since we know that is more entertaining, but for those who actually want real information about the company, you may be interested in reading this.

You can actually see real reviews by going to YOU TUBE where you will see helpful, accurate, and truthful videos from real life attendees, not anonymous posts like you see here. We thank our valued Physicians and Nurses who have attended our workshops for the HUNDREDS   of “TRUE AND REAL” testimonials. (That’s a lot and we just started taking these videos recently. We have trained thousands of health care professionals to date).  

For the malicious, disgruntled employee who continues to write these posts, you are giving us the opportunity to share these videos as well as other real testimonials from former Physician/Nurse attendees with our readers and they will not be misled by your ridiculous comments.
