It’s only fitting that we hold ourselves to a high standard and offer our patients the finest care.

    A day in DC surely isn’t complete without a tour of the Executive Mansion. While at the White House you would not want to look less than polished and presidential, so refresh your complexion with the La Mer Perfecting Treatment to blur pores and imperfections and impart a delicate glow. An S+R insider tip is that spring and summer tours fill up quickly, so make your request through your member of Congress for a tour early: you can submit your request up to six months in advance. If you are interested in seeing the highly anticipated holiday decor, enter your Christmas tour request in June.

    Stop by SHERBER+RAD to browse our boutique and take home a chic souvenir for someone special. Take a tour of our visually stunning office designed by acclaimed architect David Jameson which features beautiful wax paintings by Washington’s own acclaimed artist Robin Rose, poplar tree bark-cladded walls, hidden doors and private spacious cabanas. The look and feel is nothing like that of a doctor’s office, rather that of a European spa and with top flight care as the driver of excellence. Once you’ve tuned up your skin with a no-downtime laser or injectables treatment, head to see additional paintings on display at the century-old Phillips Collection museum or enjoy a private tour at the National Gallery with Stephen Mead, one of DC’s most knowledgeable art historians.
