He was very highly recommended to me by other physicians that i work with. I work in a hospital and many physicians recommended seeing Dr. Karamanoukian for botox. I made an appt where i was greeted by a very friendly and knowledgable staff. Dr K explained the procedure to me and made me feel very comfortable. I am very pleased with Dr.K and his team as well as the beautiful results!! I look forward to building a relationship with Dr.K and his team for all my future cosmetic and aesthetic needs!

As a fellow physician I recommend Dr K and his staff highly. They were realistic about the procedure and very accurate. They explained everything in detail before and during the procedure, follow up has been easy.
