Dr. Poochikian is extremely gifted and talented. I see him regularly for my aesthetic treatments and never leave disappointed! I have gotten so many compliments about my skin since starting the PRP micro needling; it has made a huge difference! And he always uses just the right amount of botox and fillers to leave me looking natural and not frozen. Wouldn't go to anybody else!

I first was seeing Dr. Sahakian at age 12 and then Dr. Poochikian since about age 14 or 15 and I would not go to another doctor. He gets to know his patients because he cares about the well being of his patients. He explains everything in ways that I can understand. He is part of my family. He treated my mom, my eldest son and my husband. Great doctor and great staff.

There really aren’t enough good things I can say about Dr. Poochikian’s practice. Dr. Poochikian has been my primary care physician for the past two years and throughout this time, I have received the best medical care I could have wished for. He has an incredible memory and I don’t have to remind him about any of my previous complaints; it’s actually the opposite: he is the one who asks about my past problems, that even I can hardly remember. I would definitely recommend this practice to all!

Dr. Poochikian is a true family doctor. He is very easy to talk to and his experience and vast knowledge keep me very much at easy every time I visit his office. I wish more doctors adopted the same approach that Dr. Poochikian takes. The wait time is very short yet he takes time to talk about my problems and always makes me feel better, like a true doctor should.
