"dr and staff were kind listeners. the office is close to home. my biggest hesitation is that he seems to primarily specialize in optometry, not boobs. he agreed to price match my other consultation quotes as long as the dr is licensed and has a good reputation. i have 2 more to see, but of the ones i have seen so far i prefer this dr. and staff and would like to get a quote from his office in the future for my face."
