"The office staff was very kind, informative and thorough. They let me know of upcoming specials when I called to schedule my appointment, so I could get the best possible price for botox and filler. Once at the office, the receptionist were kind, thorough and efficient. His nurse was very empathic, careful, compassionate and ensured my comfort. The doctor was friendly, thorough, kind, and down to earth. He explained his procedure efficiently, while answering all questions. Their goal was to ensure my comfort and satisfaction throughout the entire appointment and procedure. While receiving the injections, he was quick, efficient and confident. They made sure I was comfortable and gave me time to catch my breath when needed. Awesome experience with results that surpassed any other doctor I have seen for botox and filler."
