I was brutally attacked and my nose was broken. I went to another surgeon first and was horrified. Upon getting to Dr. Bolakhani my apprehension went away. He was very patient and explained everything to me. His staff was marvelous. My surgery went wonderful and I'm healing very well. G. T.

Please do not use this doctor. He was suppose to give me a breast augmentation. what he did was take shortcuts and sliced me from one side to the other under my breast. The scare is so wide wearing a bra hurts. He did not do the lipo suction on the sides so it looks like my breast is one big blob. When I told him I wasn't happy and I wanted him to redo it, he wanted me to pay 4,000. My mammogram shows there has been no change in the size or tissue of my breast since the surgery.
