Whoever wrote the review saying Dr. Billano breezes past dermatology issues to talk about Botox has obviously NOT seen her. She sees medical dermatology three days a week and does fillers, etc only on Thursday and half day Friday. She doesn't do cosmetic procedures during medical derm hours so it is highly doubtful the one star review is true. I admit I'm one of those women who get fillers and Botox. I love Dr. Billano because she makes my face look so natural that no one knows its worked on.

Dr. Billano has become concerned only with the beauty part of dermatology. She breezes past medical conditions to get to the Botox and fillers. I guess that's where the most money is.
