Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Couldn't have asked for a better time with Davin. Takes the time to do things properly and make sure things are perfect. He told me it would look invisible by the time he was done and that's exactly what happened. Given me a new world of confidence. Thanks Davin! READ MORE

Great doctor, great office - Hollywood, FL

When you need to go to a doctor, this office has their act together. Very little if any waiting in the reception area, you are escorted to the exam room and within 5 minutes or usually less Dr. Norman Minars appears.
