in Ridgecrest, CA |
I had a breast reduction done by Dr. Altman and everything was simply wonderful. I made an appointment to see if I could get the reduction done and he was very caring . I did not need to seek another opinion because all of my needs were met with him. He has all of the characteristics that I would need for a mate! ?? If you are thinking about possibly having a reduction, look no further...
