I met Dr. Kreithen approximately 5 years ago and immediately felt that I had met someone I could trust. In this field of medicine, trust is critical. Dr. Kreithen has shown nothing but honesty, patience and encouragement. He has an artist's eye and does not merely hear, but takes the time to listen and understand. As a woman placing my appearance in the hands of another, I have had nothing but complete confidence in Dr. Kreithen.

Though he seems like he is listening. BOTCHED all the way.

OMG - I would not recommend him to anyone. I have been dealing with him for over one year. He recommended a procedure for the 'wrinkles around my knees and guaranteed me a 50% improvement. You should see the pictures now. He performed a very expensive procedure called Cellulaze. After researching and my second visit, I questioned him but he stood strong and told me that cellulite is wrinkles and this would work. No refund -no response. I am hiring a lawyer.
