In good conscience, I CANNOT recommend this doctor. Sure, he might be okay for botox injections. But I was considering forehead contouring surgery. He told me that he needed to simply "smooth" the bone on my forehead! After getting a second opinion, however, I found that this surgery is much more dangerous than he made it out to be, and that if my skull isn't scanned to CHECK whether my forehead bone is too close to my sinuses, doing this surgery could be DANGEROUS. Good thing I found anoth

I had to several biopsies on my left breast so I needed to have reconstruction work to even them out and also I got them lifted ..... I woke up from my surgery after making it very clear I did not want to be anything bigger than a C and he made me close to a E .....after he had several complaints from me he finally realized he made a mistake because they were falling underneath my armpits ....he double charged me yes he made me pay for it and I still have having issues and never got a lift !!
