Are you a patient of Sabrina Fabi, MD?

I have had belotero injections as well as dysport injections from other dermatologists and I haven't been pleased with them, but when Dr. Fabi does this procedure, the results are perfect every time. I have very deep wrinkles around my mouth and above my nose ( in between my eyes), and when other doctors have done this procedure my lipstick still bleeds and the wrinkles are still noticeable. I am a registered nurse and therefore I feel that I am an good judge of one's expertise. I also never get bruises from the procedure when she does it.I highly recommend this physician. My only fear is that if she moves away, I will have to fly across the country to track her down to continue to be her patient!

I saw Dr. Fabi for several skin issues; acne scars, wrinkles, spider veins on face/ears. So far I am pleased with the results. Dr. Fabi is a wonderful and caring physician. She took the time to explain all of her recommendations and answer all of my questions. The office staff is also amazing. The trip to San Diego was well worth my time! I am already looking forward to my next visit.

I have to say hands down, Dr. Fabi is one of the most intelligent and comforting doctors I know. She makes you feel right at home, and as a patient, there is no other way I'd rather feel. If you are looking for someone who will actually take the time to understand you and provide solutions to your concerns, then Dr. Fabi is for you.

Amazing! Over a period of about 2-3 months, I had 1.5 vials of Sculptra and about 3 vials of Belotero. Sculptra is about $950 per vial and Belotero is about $650 per vial. I will go back for a touch up in 6 months (of only one of each) to maintain the benefits of what I have going now. I truly recommend this procedure to all, but more, have it done by Dr. Sabrina Fabi of Goldman Butterwick Fitzpatrick Groff Fabi, in San Diego or someone comparable. I am a HUGE skeptic - half empty kind of girl and I do NOT take my face lightly. I can't, I'm a Model and if it looks as though I've done a "Kim Kardasian or Joan Rivers on my face," I get No MORE WORK. Dr. Fabi not only was extremely professional, kind, curtious, the ultimate perfection of "bed side manner, but being young, gorgeous and "down to earth," just sealed the deal for me! She was thorough, listened to my needs, and literally guided me to the "success" I was seeking. I could not ask for a better procedure or better Doctor to deliver precise, amazing, and spectacular results! If I were not a Model, I would show the world how amazing I look! Which is: I look like myself, but rested, youthful and stress free! Simply, you can not tell anything happened, except that it looks as though I have been on a vacation with luxurious amounts of rest! I am overwhelmed with happiness!!

Dr. Sabrina Fabi is an expert in the field of botox application and fillers(Restalyne). I feel that she is honest and sensitive when discussing my facial appearance and has my best interests at heart. I have been totally happy under her supervision and appreciate her expertise.

I truly don't think my experience could have gone more smoothly. The staff at Goldman Butterwick Fitzpatrick Groff & Fabi was accommodating to any and every possible need I could have. They got me in and ready for consultation even when I arrived early to my appointments! Everything is perfectly thought out so that you are in and out, without any delays. Dr. Fabi's easy going personality and even suddle sense of humor makes the entire visit at ease and comforting. Her patience and compassion got me through the procedures whenever my anxiety tended to takeover. She's incredibly relatable and always has my best interests in mind. She is determined to help her patients find relief and for the first time I believed my skin would get better when I heard the confidence in her voice. I am so thankful for for my results from Dr. Fabi and the fact that I never had to do any internal damage on my body! Dr. Fabi will always have such a special place in my heart. She has not only taken the huge weight of insecurity off my shoulders, but she has become a friend to go to for advice and support. I've never had a doctor work so hard for each individual patient they come across. She is inspiring and should be acknowledged to no end.

I saw Dr. Fabi a few days ago for the first time and left knowing that, going forward, I would not trust anyone else to work on me. More than a skilled doctor, she is an artist, assessing with a very critical eye exactly which areas of the face needed treatment (and what type) and suggesting how certain changes could improve my overall appearance. Having received Botox and Sculptra treatments from her, I am looking (and feeling) as though I'm 25 (I'm 33), with expertly administered treatments delivering completely natural-looking results beyond my expectations: my cheeks are fuller, my jaw line is more defined, and even my smile looks better - all without giving away that "I've had help". My appointment was on a Friday, and when I returned to work on Monday morning, several people remarked on how rested I looked from the weekend (the truth is, I only got 5 1/2 hours of sleep the night before!). During my consultation, Dr. Fabi took time to meticulously examine my face, discussing every detail of what i wanted to achieve and what I preferred to avoid, listening and taking note of all I said. She explained the various options I had, providing clear explanations and enough information to allow me to make an educated decision. During the procedures, she made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. I hardly even felt the injections as she performed them. Throughout my appointment Dr. Fabi was energetic and attentive and had a great, friendly, very positive attitude. Her medical assistant was also very personable and clearly experienced. Together they made me feel that I was in good hands - and I was! I would certainly recommend seeing Dr. Fabi to anyone - a doctor who truly cares about her patients and delivers fantastic results!

From a group of people from Dr. Smoot office. The doctor I have is Dr. Sabrina Fabi. She has done V-beam and IPL laser treatments on my face. She also did a vein treatment. She is an excellent doctor and answers all my questions. She is friendly, courteous and always has a smile on her face when she greets you. I am so glad I have her as my doctor.

Dr. Fabi is a wonderful caring doctor. She takes the time to make you feel comfortable and answer any questions you may have. I got injected with Xeomin and I love the results, within hours I had little movement and can't wait for the full results!! I am one of her youngest patients and believe in preventative care, Dr. Fabi has not only gained my trust but my respect as a physician. I highly recommend her.

I was referred to Dr. Fabi by a couple friends and I immediately knew she was the doctor for me. She has the best bedside manner and I can tell that she truly cares about her patients. I would recommend her to anyone interesting in any cosmetic dermatology procedure! I hope this helps anyone looking for a GREAT doctor!

The effectiveness of my treatments however go beyond technology and were clearly related to the experience, competence, and skills exhibited by Dr. Fabi. I would strongly recommend Fraxel Restore in the hands of a competent physician such as Dr. Fabi for the treatment of acne scars.

Dr. Fabi has consistently advised me on what is best for my face/skin. Sculptra was her suggestion and a very good call for me.

I first found the clinic through a Groupon. I was so impressed with Dr. Fabi's knowledge and wonderful personality, I have stayed on as a loyal client. I have tried other medical providers and have been disappointed in their techniqiue or choice of procedure for me. Every suggestion Dr. Fabi has made, has been the right one for my face.

I love Dr. Fabi! She is very personable and really takes time to explain the treatment and makes recommendations for other treatments without making you feel pressured. Dr. Fabi trains other doctors on the use of Ulthera and does multiple passes. I felt very confident with her.
