MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I have read great things about him and booked an appointment with him. I went in and had some various concerns in addition to rejuvenation. He whizzed in and out, was disinterested in hearing my input or seeing photos I had brought showing what I was looking to achieve, he did NOT use Sculptra at all and was unapologetic as if it was just not used (more like he just trusts the older fillers). I had botox done, which wore off in record time, he did not even address some of my concerns and did not even recommend any remedies for them but just skipped over them as if I was a nuisance. He basically made decisions for me so quickly I could not even think. The initial result, other than the fact he hit an artery and causes serious bruising that lasted three weeks, were actually pretty good. The Botox wore off in 5-6 weeks, NEVER did I have Botox wear off so fast. I have had fillers and for the first time I got a granuloma. He is a god-complex doctor who is old-fashioned, arrogant and has an authoritarian approach to what you need. I do appreciate he is NOT an up-sell doctor, quite the opposite, but he is also not a listener and if you do not know what your patient wants you cannot help them correctly. Ironically I had an appointment with another doctor in the practice but was switched to him and asked if I minded last minute--I can only wonder if my experience would have been different. The staff was really nice but for the price I paid the quality was beyond poor. I am sure he does great for people who simply want filler or a certain procedure he does or is known for (he apparently works with the gender community a lot) but if you just want filler and botox go elsewhere, for this price there are far better doctors who use much more lasting products. His office also sold me an expensive cover for the bruising and later I purchased BB cream at a spa and it was FAR better than what I purchased from him and far cheaper.
