He did an amazing job with my keloid. After the removal he prescribed radiation and follow up visits. His experience really shows in his work, I look back at where the keloid was and it's as if nothing was ever there. He's a true professional

Could not be HAPPIER ~ Caring Doctor!

I broke my jaw, this guy didn't even do the correct procedure. My teeth never aligned after surgery. I even asked about the procedure closed or open, he choose the fastest and easiest way, got paid and screwed me. You would be a fool to go to him. I was told to see my dentist, we'll my dentist confirmed, the guy did it wrong. I've been to FOUR (4) maxi facial surgeons all agree that he did the wrong procedure now it's costing 10,000 to align my mouth so I do not have headaches.GET 2ND OPINION

I would NEVER recommend this surgeon to anyone. He did plastic surgery on a wound on my brothers back. He did a horrible job, cosmetically as well as functionally. There are necrotic areas, and now we have to see another surgeon. He wouldn't see him in follow-up either, unless we came to the ER. Beware!
