so pleased with his skills and professionalism

when I came to Dr. Krein to be stitched I was very concerned about how he could stitch me to minimize scarring. He seemed confident and assured me repeatedly that he could maintain symmetry in my features and that I would not be unhappy. I returned today 10 days later and am very happy thus far. We are going to work together to minimize the scar. I am so very happy with his professionalism and the team he works with. I highly recommend him and his practice.
