The doctor was honest and informative

My mother saw Dr Fabien for complications after a dermal filler. After seeing her once in office and doing an incision/drainage, he refused to see her again after the swelling came back, told her to go see an infectious disease doctor (a three month wait, during which my mother would've suffered significant distress over from the swollen and painful fillers), and abruptly -cancelled- her scheduled follow up appointment with her. If you get a complication, beware: Fagien will not treat you.

Dr. Fagien is one of the best doctors in south florida for eyelid surgery and botox and filler. He has a great personality and makes you feel confident and comfortable. The eye lid surgery took at least 5 years off and the botox and filler is the best I have had and I have been to several others. The staff is also amazing, efficient and helpful. I am not the only one that feels this way about him. Many people I know also agree Dr Fagien and his staff are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had my eyes done by another Dr. Turned out to be a nightmare & A lot of work from the BEST surgeon I could find to make them look better Well. Let's just say..I got extremely lucky when another Dr told me about Dr Fagien They not only look better from the bad Surgery but they look better than Ever! Another plus...I would never go to another Dr for my injections...only him:))) He also has a wonderful staff ..Warm & compassionate

Dr. Fagien was great and the results were amazing. Last office visit felt rushed. Office staff seems nice when you are there, but if later you need something then no response and/or rude.
