    From check in at the front desk I was greeted warmly. The nurse that first was with me was very nice, asked some questions that would help with the appointment then with Dr. Wang ... Dr. Wang, he was absolutely fabulous courteous. He listened. He answered all of my questions after a thoughtful time and the person who was his person who took notes was very very gracious as well. Overall just a fantastic wonderful appointment. So I would rate him a 10 out of a 10 any old day. So, yeah, and he knows what he's talking about. He's a great doctor. Thank you so much. I'll be out in a minute.

    I came in yesterday for a BBL treatment on my face. Everyone was on time and very courteous and very professional. I can't complain about that at all. But when I came home I reached up and I touched my eyebrows at my eyebrows were hard and crusty feeling I thought that I had some of the gel or some ointment that I had dried in them. But then after I went to the bathroom looked in the mirror, I realized that my eyebrows had been essentially Fried by the laser just the tops of them. However being a 44 year old woman. It is hard to grow my eyebrows in right now. It's actually something that I've been spending years trying to have hair to grow in and I already spent a lot of time trying to fill them in and to grow and the hairs are just in this like kinky*

  • Mar 06, 2019

    Dr. Wang was really kind and thoughtful and spent time with me explaining things, and he didn't pressure me into doing something that was unnecessary. You know, he agreed with me about how things looked and that he was like, you know, you don't need any more treatment. You look great, so he was very supportive. He didn't pressure me, and I had a great experience. Thank you.

  • Mar 01, 2019

    I was shown utmost courtesy, promptness in receiving care, and had procedure and process explained to me. I am especially pleased with the results of the repair that was done.

  • Feb 27, 2019

    I've had a very good experience. The doctor is very competent, he did a very good surgery. I am looking forward to having a full recovery. However, I know she's not in full recovery, yet. But according to the doctor it will recover and when it does I'll be very thankful that it is fully recovered and healed. That I am just very thankful for his surgery. He did an amazing job and I'm confident that the doctor knows what he's doing. He says it will heal, I believe him and I'm looking forward to the day that it does heal. So I'm on my way to recovery, and when it heals I'll be 1000 % thankful. Thank you.
