Dr. Daines is delightful. I immediately felt at ease with him and could tell that he genuinely cares about his patients. His skill is clearly top notch, but he is fare more approachable than you would expect from someone with his qualifications.

Dr. Daines is an excellent human being. I would highly recommend a visit to his office.

I was pleasantly...

I am grateful for his masterful...

Dr. Daines is great! He's takes his time to get to know you, not just your face. He explains everything very well and they numb you up before the procedure

No More Double Chin!!! Newport Beach, CA

The doctor injected my chin and his medical assistant was there literally holding my hand. The staff went out of their way to make me comfortable and put any nerves I had at ease. Dr. Daines and his staff provided me with an excellent experience from begining to end.
