Dr. Hensal’s work is awesome! He took time to approximate my tatto that had to be cut during my surgery. With that type of meticulous work you know the inside look as good as the outside! My only complaint I that he is a bit hurried when interacting with his patient.i would recommend him but be sure to write questions down before your visit.this is not his fault but his medical assistants in his office introduce themselves as “nurses.” Not a good practice!
