35 Years Old with Acne Scars - Irvine, CA

Dr. Christopher Zachary is AMAZING!!! I went to 5 consultations in Orange County and two of those Dr.s referred me to Christopher Zachary. From the moment I met him I felt like I was in good hands. He was honest, confident, and did not make me feel like he was after my wallet. He was very comforting during the procedure and spends time with you during the follow ups. His nurses and residents are also very good! I'd give him a 10 out of 10!! He's changed my life.
