Reviewed on Dec 13, 2023

I really thought the doctor was extremely amazing and he not only took the time to listen to me, but had gone of my MyChart to know all about me and what I had just recently been through! I also have scleroderma which is an autoimmune disease that has greatly affected me. Doctor was not only extremely knowledgeable, personable and very kind. He presented me with the options for what I was looking to do and while I could've gotten fillers done that day if I had made that choice, that wasn't the best option for me and my scleroderma and what would give us the best results!! He explained all of the different things I could do including risks,benefit's and what would be best in the long run.
