Joseph W. Sharlow, MD, FACS
Medical Spa Director / General Surgeon
Genesis Med Spa formerly known as Toni’s Medical Aesthetics which was established by Dr. Sharlow in 2003. His vision was to provide a medical spa where women and men could enhance their natural beauty without surgery. He wanted to bring to the southeast area the latest technology, procedures and products in the rapidly developing field of medical aesthetics. With a name change in 2014, Toni's is now operating as Genesis Med Spa and is now affiliated with Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital's Women's Wellness Services.
As director, Dr. Sharlow specializes in all of the services offered at Genesis Med Spa, however he administers injectables along with performing the Cellulaze and Smartlipo procedures. He received his advanced training in Smartlipo from two of the pioneers in this revolutionary process, Dr. Bruce Katz, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, and Dr. Michael Bruck in 2007. Since that time, Dr. Sharlow has performed over 2,800 Smartlipo procedures.
Dr. Sharlow is board-certified by the American College of Surgeons and runs a general surgery practice at Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), elected in 1993 by a committee of his peers and colleagues.

Patty Wehner, RN, BSN
Professional since 1983
Team Member since 2003
Patty has been in the medical field since 1983 after receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Southeast Missouri State University. She has primarily worked at Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital, caring for and treating people in the town where she was raised. Patty's experience in Oncology, ER, OB, ICU and Surgery has made her the successful and passionate nurse that she is today. After being asked to "cover" one shift in Dr. Sharlow's general surgery practice, Patty found her home and that one shift has now turned into 17 years. Dr. Sharlow and Patty have worked together, not only in his general surgery practice, but at Genesis as well. Patty was one of the first staff members to be added to the Genesis team and has been with the practice since 2003, when the first location opened.
Patty is certified and trained in a variety of procedures offered at Genesis. She is also an Ulthera technician and a certified laser technician. Patty offers Ultherapy treatments, laser hair removal, sublative rejuvenation, skin rejuvenation and vascular treatments. She is available on Wednesdays from 2-6 pm or Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Patty's favorite service at Genesis is SculpSure. She loves this new non-invasive body contouring treatment because it permanently removes fat in a 25 minute treatment with no downtime! With Patty's busy schedule this fits into her lifestyle rather well.
Patty's favorite product sold at Genesis is SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense Sunscreen because the most important thing we can do is protect!
Patty's favorite part about working at Genesis is helping people feel better about themselves!
