Absolutely thrilled with my results from Dr. Galanis!! This was my first experience receiving Botox and I am extremely impressed with Dr. Galanis' professionalism and attention to detail. Dr. Galanis is genuinely kind, caring, and made me feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process. I will continue to refer many friends to Dr. Galanis for all of their cosmetic needs. I could not have asked for a better experience from a very talented and skilled surgeon!
