    The front desk is super friendly. Dr. Saloom is super down to earth and speaks in a professional manner that a lay person understands. I would absolutely recommend him to my friends more importantly I would recommend him to my family.

    Dr. Saloom and his staff are friendly and helpful. His prices for the procedure that I had (Botox injections) were better than the local dermatologists. I never have a problem getting an appointment, nor have I had to wait around to be seen.
