I liked Dr. Perrin personally, but she moved to quickly and talked fast. I did think she listened except after surgery when I wasn’t happy with the results. Now I have to live with a very unaesthetic result.

Not my experience at all. Much too blasé about long term damages from treatment. Zero bedside manner, when I went to shake hands with her it was like touching something dead. Like, without gloves and a scalpel she would rather not touch you period.

Dr. Perrin is an outstanding doctor - one who marries the attributes of expertise with listening to a patient and coming up with a plan based on merit and feedback. I can't say enough about her. So grateful she came recommended and although I hope I won't be in need of future treatment I am comforted by the fact I know just who to see and will be in excellent hands!
