I've been wanting to lift my eye lids for years and I finally went for it. Dr Ghafouri made the process so easy and comfortable. She has a really gentle nature and talked me through everything. She played soft music that helped with my nerves during the procedure. She checked in with me more than I think any other doctor would, she really cared. And the proof was in the pudding, my eyes look amazing! I'm ready to go back and do my under eye bags!!

Dr.Ghafouri is one of the best!!! She has been doing my Botox and lips for several years now and she injects my mother as well....we both are always so thrilled with our results- they are natural and look great....I have baseline lip and eyebrow asymmetry and Dr.Ghafouri always is able to do her magic and bring everything into symmetry for me. She has a wonderful and fun personality and great bedside manner. She's definitely the best in her field!!

Dr. Ghafouri is difficult to get in touch with. It can take a week for her to respond to a message left for her. when she says she will do something for you she does not follow through. She is slow to cll in RXs even though she tells you she will do it right away. She did not accurately treat my condition and I had to wait for her to respond with another RX. Her English language skills at emailing are so poor as to be confusing. Dr Ghafouri is interested in her own convenience and not the patien

Dr Ghafouri took great care in removing deposits on my eyelid. They are healing well, and I am very happy with her care and expertise.
