i would never return to this office. His front desk was rude. He only cares about the money and my first experience he was yelling at the staff during my visit i waited 2 and half hours and my follow up again waited 2 and half hours. I would never go back.
As a surgeon goes, he sucks. He did a procedure on me and the results are disfiguring and this is my face. My eyes are asymmetric and no longer work properly. It cant be fixed with out major surgery. Again. Do your homework there are great surgeons out there that are truly ocular plastic surgeons. HE IS NOT!
