Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Very professional and did not rush the consultation. De. Kusman and his team were great. It was nice that with a same-day appointment, I didnt feel rushed at all and they took the time to explain their services and made thorough recommendations for treatment. A wonderful first impression and experience, thank you!

I’ve been at 5 other doctors for fillers and he’s by far the best he’s an artist and very well educated and also the best part about him is that the injections don’t hurt one bit!! He’s hands down my favorite in Tucson

I had some complications after cataract surgery. Dr. Kusman was very reassuring, but did not answer my questions or offer any treatment for the double vision. After months of frustration and no answers I sought a second opinion. Immediately laser surgery was offered to fix my double vision. I wish he would have discussed my concerns and addressed them.
