Joanne Zwickert Electrolysis Carole Oliver, Joanne Zwickert Medical Dental Building, 509 Olive Way, Suite 605 Seattle, WA 98101 (206) 682-2727. Electrologists: 6. Hours: By appointment only. Closed Sunday. $47/hour. Modality: Blend: 100% Probes: disposable. Chosen through: ad, non-TG referral. Free consultation. Wears gloves. [1 TG ref, 98-04-04]

Respondent Comments: They are *incredible* in every sense. They took me out to dinner on my birthday, the day before I went full time. They gave me a beautiful card which said, "Women stick together, so we're here for you". They gave me a silver pendent with my name on it, which I've worn every single day since. They were like such close friends; when I had to say goodbye, I cried and cried and cried (all over them). They gave me advice about passing, they were fun to talk to, and they were the most knowledgable about electrolysis I have ever met. I still write letters regularly with Carole and Roberta :). They are unbelievable, and so so wonderful!!! I was so, so happy with Joanne Zwickert. I would recommend them to anyone in Seattle. I made 2 * 1.5 hours round trip in commute time each week (3 hours per week in my car) for a couple of years to see them; I think that expresses my belief in them.

Mickey Miron Mickey Miron, R.E. Fremont Court 4464 Fremont N. Suite 102 Seattle, WA 98103 (206) 633-3066 zapdude@sprynet.com Men and women. very TS friendly.  (99-02-24 6 TG refs)

Mickey Miron, an electrolysist recommended in the Washington section at http://www.tsroadmap.com/physical/zapdir/zapdirWA.html, has moved. He now is working out of his home at 1575 NW 90th St., Seattle. The phone number is (206) 271-0076.

Number of electrologists: 2 Days of operation: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday,   Hourly rate: $50.00 Blocks: Blocks available at 10 hours for $450. Modality used on respondent: Thermolysis: 100%. Types of probes available: disposable, insulated, straight, gold-plated. Chosen through: TG referral,  Free consultation with hairs treated for free. Certification displayed. Wears gloves and mask.

Client 1:  Mickey combines a cleanly, state of the art facility with a warm personality that can make anyone feel at home. Mickey's office is comfortable and inviting. I have trusted Mickey with face and he has done fantastic work. Over time, were were able to clean broad sections of my face. He helped met set my expectations so that I did not think we could do my entire face in one session. Without Mickey's hard work and support, I do not think I would have been able to make it. Some of the other electrolygists were hard on my skin and left scars and burns. Mickey's work was more permanent than the other electrolygists I've visted.

Client 2:  I have worked with three electrologists in the Seattle area and I have settled on Mickey to do the bulk of my clearing. After one session in which my face scabbed up he and I both agreed that we were attempting to rush too fast and, by mutual agreement, we are now going slower with very satisfying results. My first electrologist was not very hygenic and plucked hairs without treatment. My second electrologist, who uses blend, is very sweet and concerned about skin damage (read 'slower'). I continue to use her to keep areas clear after Mickey has done the major work.

Client 3: I have been seeing Mickey for close to a year and a half. Mickey has a wonderful bed side manner and quite frankly he did a lot to help me through my early transition. My face looks wonderful as do a number of other areas which I shall leave unnamed. I know for a fact he bends over backwards for his clients, doing late hours and weekends. He stops when I tell him to and works were I tell him too.

Client 4: I have been using Mickey through my entire transition, as well as other people and techniques, and I have never experianced anything like what was discribed in account you published, Mickey has alway shown the utmost care with my skin, his offices are always clean and nicely decorated, he has never offered any kind of "package deal" on pricing, and if he did it would only be in the the interest of saving someone some money (go figure) Mickey has done a lot for t-folk here in the Seattle area.

Client 5: In about 75 hours of electrolysis, Mickey has does a great job, and has not caused any permanent scarring on me. He's known in the local T*-community for being one of the fastest, skilled, and most professional electrolysis around. I've made more progress in the 75 hours I've seen him, than the 150 hours with another area electrologist. Thanks to him, I'm almost done. He's never pressured me to do more time... he's even cut sessions short and pro-rated them when I hit my pain threshold. He does offer 'block' time, but it's at a discount, and he's never pressured me to pay less : ) As for trust, he did pre-surgery electrolysis on me.... he was very professional, and made me comfortable, even though he was working on an area I was really uncomfortable with. (Especially, letting a man see me in my naked pre-op form.) As a result of his work, Meltzer did not need a skin graft, and I have seen no regrowth in what used to be that area.
