Dr. Kapustiak listens and is genuinely concerned with getting you the best result. He is engaging and humble, a genuinely likeable doc. And post surgically I am very impressed with the outcome.
in Orland Park, IL |
Not a very good surgeon my eyebrow lift failed after 3 weeks and eyes started drooping again he said my eyebrow position is going to stay this way because that is the way it is I got a second opinion and the surgeon recommended getting another surgery because one of the eyes muscles is totally drooped and the other one started he may be a good general opthalmologist but not a great surgeon
