Patient Comments (3)
Stafford, VA |
I went in for a consultation to have a ptosis repair with Dr. Gavaris and I couldn't be any more happier with the results. I looked up many doctors in the Washington DC area but once I had my consultation with him I knew he was the doctor I would trust to perform my procedure. He was ready to answer any questions, he was caring, crafty, and very professional in every step of the way. He performed the Gavaris ptosis procedure which is an internal incision for mild ptosis with no external scaring
