Dr. Parsa gave me back my self confidence! I had surgery in August 2013 with another Dr and it left my eye oddly shaped. I was so self conscious and obsessed about it. I read great things about Dr. Parsa online so I scheduled a consultation and a few weeks later had my revision surgery and I am so HAPPY with the results! He is a great Dr. He took the time to make sure I was comfortable and to answer any questions or concerns that I had. Truly genuine. I highly recommend Dr. Parsa.

For a long time I have thought of removing the bags under my eyes. I was watching eyewitness news and they mentioned Dr. Kami for undereye surgery. So, I went for it. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and quick to validate any concerns, if any. Dr. Kami was very professional, honest, and sincere about ensuring my satisfaction with the procedure. I have been very pleased with the results.

Dr. Parsa is my savior. I had two previous surgeries by other doctors which they both caused significant damage to my eyelid. He was able to fix something that most people told me could not be touched. I'm greatful to him for giving my life back. Before his surgery for two years I could not close my eyes. At night when I slept I had to tape them shot. The first night after his surgery I was able to sleep with any tape. He is my savior. Thank you Dr. Parsa for all that you do.
