I was in your office for MOHS surgery on February 11th on my upper eyelid. My eye has healed beautifully and I am very pleased with the results. I also want to thank the staff, nurses you and the plastic surgeon. Everyone in your office was polite, professional and efficient. The treatment I was dreading turned out to be not that bad. You all made the difference.

I am very grateful to Dr Kwatra and everyone at his office. He did an excellent job with Mohs surgery on my face. He was gentle and kind. Dr Mcleish did my stitches and I am so pleased with his work. I was so nervous for this procedure and everyone at the office was so kind, gentle and compassionate. The lady that did the numbing, I believe her name was Samantha, was so gentle and caring. I am grateful to have been referred to this office for my procedure & so grateful for the work you all did. I was in excellent hands.

Entire experience was excellent. Dr. Kwatra and the plastic surgeon are highly skilled and experienced and have a comforting professional demeanor. The nurses and office staff were professional, personable and extremely helpful. I stopped into the office several months after the surgery but hours before my appointment and requested that someone please look at the incision, where it appeared that a stitch was starting to poke out. Immediately a nurse jumped up, examined me and pulled it out

Dr. Kwatra has a very nice bedside manner and makes you feel very comfortable before beginning the procedure. He answers all your questions in ways that you can understand & makes sure you understand everything 100% before proceeding. I wish I had him for my previous Mohs procedures!
