Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. McGriff "Dr Michael McGriff, MD is the Greatest! For me, it all started with him using the latest techniques to get rid of the ugly brown spots and melasma that other docs had only made worse. Then, we moved on to the most pleasant Botox experience you can imagine (including the best prices!) He makes everything so comfortable, including laser tatto removal. He has really cool laser equipment that seems to be the best and brightest. Then, I decided to try the Smart-Lipo Precision treatment to get rid of my double chin. Wow, what an amazing difference, in just one session and it lasts forever. I'm a big fan and have referred my best friends to Dr McGriff."
"Dr. McGriff is so gentle and compassionate with me that I find myself try new things to make myself look my best. He explains every step before, after, and during which takes away all my fear and anxiety that comes with any medical procedure. I did the smart lipo on my stomach which had been a problem area for me as long as I can remember. I work out 5 to 6 times a week and eat very healthy but could never flatten my tummy. After this procedure my abs are actually defined and I have the confidence to wear crop tops. After I saw my amazing results I decided to target another area I was insecure about. This was my jawline and chin so I tried Kybella for 3 treatments the first treatment the swelling lasted for about a week and a half but by the third treatment my chin and jawline were more defined and the swelling was very minimal."
