I highly recommend Dr. Korst. Respectfully, he was an angel in my life, I had my hyperhydrosis surgery for sweaty hands a year ago, and it was the best decision and the best thing I've ever done in my life. Fortunately, I'm not suffering anymore, my life has changed completely as emotionally as economically and it hasn't changed only for me but for my family too, now I'm able to do many things that I used to avoid in the past. My life is much better now. Thank you so much Dr. Korst, God bless u.
