I've spent thousands of dollars at a plastic surgeon's office trying to correct the damage this guy did to my face with his "cosmetic procedures". Don't be fooled like I was: don't even consider this clinic.

I had a very good experience with this dermatologist for my acne scar. After 3 months, my scars started to fade away. I recommend iClear for scar to any one with acne scars! I am a physician myself, and it took me a while to pick my laser guy. Thank you Dr. Ghohestani. Staff were caring as well.
