He was super nice. I did not wait very long and he explained everything to me. I was really nervous about having a biopsy but after he talked to me I felt more relaxed. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

I have had a few procedures and each has met or exceeded all expectations.

He is did a horrible job on a lower eye lift he did on me. My left eye lids will not even close tight enough to keep the water out. You can see and count the stitches were he stitched my lower eye lid back together. The right eye looks about as bad. He is so stuck on how great he thinks he is, you can not say anything negative because he will not listen. He will never lay another knife on me, or anybody in my family and friends.

Do not use this doctor. He doesn't care about his patients. I waited for almost three hours and he spent less than 15 minutes doing the procedure, removing two basil cells from my face. He was in such a hurry he barely said a word to me. The one thing he did say to me was that I bled like a stuck pig. What doctor says that to a patient. I am now left with a big scar on my face which would not have happened with a good plastic surgeon.
