Patient Comments (1)
in Long Island, NY |
I read stellar reviews about Dr. Kotlus, so was eager to go to him for my under eye bags I am really happy I went to him and see why he got such great reviews. Dr. Kotlus was very thorough with explaning fillers vs surgery options, and did not pressure me with either choice. He was very caring, considerate, knowledgeable, and explained realistic expectations. I went with fillers and am very happy with the result. I may do the surgery later. Thank you Dr. Kotlus!
