I was referred to Dr. Lakshman by another doctor at Glendale Adventist Medical Center who said that Dr. Lakshman is the doctor she would go to if she ever needed a procedure done on her face. I like to fact that Dr. Lakshman worked with me as a cash patient and did a great job removing a wart on my face and the scar is almost undetectable. I recommend Pasadena Surgeons to anyone needing plastic or cosmetic surgery.
