    Dr Todd is an expert in the field of cosmetic surgery. The hardest choice for me was trusting a Doctor to work on my face. Being a male, the last thing I wanted was to look like I've had work done. He totally understood my concern and helped me look and feel great about myself. He has a great team and it's obvious from the moment you walk in the door. I have to mention Christina who greets everyone with a genuine smile.
    He's the best at what he does and truly knows and loves his work
