Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

No, I wouldn’t. I did not have a good experience there and I’m not happy. I should’ve known because the doctor herself looks so strange and overfilled. I wish I hadn’t gone but I guess it will wear off until time. I’m just so embarrassed.

I wanted my lip lines gone but was afraid of ending up with ducky lips. I saw Dr. B who did her magic. My lips look very natural. My lines have vanished. Dr B is truly an art6.

I lived with a dog bite scar for ten years.  My new girlfriend encouraged me to see her doctor to get it fixed. The scar was actually becoming more noticeable as time went on. I was very nervous going in but Dr. Bonakdar’s practice was so nice. She recommended a long-lasting filler called Voluma and did the correction at my consult appointment. The scar is gone. I am so pleased with my results.

I have been getting filler and botox for years. I was never 100% happy for different reasons. Well I have found my Holy Grail. Dr. Bonakdar knows what she is doing. She understands the anatomy of the face and how to replace lost volume just where you need it. I have a job in the public eye and I don't want to look fake or plastic. I have never had a bad experience or bad outcome since I started here several years ago. Love her- love her staff! Carol Bailey

I have been going to Dr Banokdar and have always gotten great results that are natural. Dr. B always listens to what I need and doesn't oversell. Great staff and she always stays on top of the industry trends.
