Patient Comments (1)
stateline, nv |
Met him for laser-damaged face. I was told he would look at photos, but he refused and seemed very defensive. He stated in my patient record that I weighed 133 pounds although I've never weighed that much in my entire life and no one in his office even weighed me. Still, he wrote that changing my weight "could alleviate the majority of [my] concerns" with the pronounced facial changes, which was not, and has not been the case, however. He said the laser is safe but gave no specific research.
