Dr. Nakra did a lower facelift, fat transfer and laser resurfacing three months ago and the results are amazing. He was highly recommended by several trusted friends in the cosmetic field and I am 100% satisfied.

I had a lower lid bleph procedure done by Dr. Nakra. I interviewed several surgeons in town, and went with Dr. Nakra based on a recommendation, and because he specialized in eye surgery. He was also the most professional and pleasant doctor I interviewed. He did an amazing job, and 3 years later, everything still looks great. He was very kind thru the entire process and made me feel comfortable. He also followed up with me after the surgery. He is an A+ surgeon all the way.

Dr. Nakra was very friendly, open about what to expect and did a very good job on my eyelids. He showed compassion and interest along with a sense of humor which I feel is very important. He answered questions and never made me feel as though I was just another patient.

Yes, I would wholeheartedly refer both family and friends to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nakra and his staff. He is so personable, yet, professional and thorough both in his examination and questioning of the patient to understand exactly why and what needs to be achieved. I also appreciate how he will communicate with my other doctors. It made for a successful outcome. The staff was great and especially on surgery day--attentive and thorough as Dr. Great experience!

I have had five surgeries with Dr. Nakra that included seven procedures from reconstructive to cosmetic over three years. He is a highly skilled, caring, and compassionate surgeon. He has changed my life and I will always be grateful. I will not hesitate to see him going forwards for any needs.
