5 out of 5 stars Wisdom Tooth Removal
••I can't remember the amount before insurance, but my copay was around $900. ••I can't say enough great things about Dr.Q and his staff. My older daughter had an odomtoma and one wisdom tooth removed by DrQ a few years ago but I lost Dr.Q's information when he opened his new practice. Fast fwd: I needed my deeply impacted wisdom teeth extracted plus two other teeth to make room for braces ...

Dr Q is a perfectionist!! He is compassionate and understands patients needs. His surgery center is a state of the art facility and his staff is so warm and friendly!! I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is in need of an upper eyelid surgery or any liposuction procedure! He called me that evening and throughout the weekend to make sure I was doing well. He is the upmost kindest surgeon that I have dealt with. I am very happy I choose him and I will never go anywhere else.
I've gotten Botox once or twice a year for the past four years It has definitely been worth it. It usually costs me $300 per treatment. I get a bit in the globella are to erase "11" lines and a little bit to cover a vertical line across my forehead. I do not erase crows feet, because they look happy. Dr. Clemente Qaqish in Escondido, CA does such a neat perfect job. His treatments are...
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
My abbreviated interaction with doctor. Me: Hello Dr. Q , I need my lips done. Dr. Q: Its good to see you, how are you?, you look good.. hmm your lips still look pretty good too, you don't need a full syringe, maybe come back in a few months. Me: I agree they still look ok, considering I had no upper lip 2 years ago, but I want them refreshed! really i do! , I want to be vampish, and I dont mean as in the old shoe definition. Dr. Q: Ok, lets see what we can do. We can use 1/2 of the Juvederm for your upper lip, I can balance out your upper lip's left side, and use what's left to fill the wrinkled indentation here (as he points to the corner of my mouth) Me: (the light bulb just went on) really?? hmmm soooo, Dr. Q what can we do for the remaining indents, creases that are around my mouth , will Juvederm address that? Dr. Q : Yes it will, Juvederm will help smooth out the area, if it's something that really bothers you I can inject a 2nd syringe to fill the marionette line here, the crease here and here( as he points and touches the areas).. Me: YES!! lets do it!. Dr. Q : since we are doing 2 syringes, I will give you $50 off . Me: thanks, thats awesome! The actual procedure was painless, his nurse Jen is an angel, helping me ice pre-procedure and speaking to me in her signature reassuring manner during the procedure. The procedure was done within a few minutes. The rest is history.. I know a long review for lips/filler. I just feel very fortunate I have Dr. Q in my corner while Father Time's hands reign havoc on my face. I trust Dr. Q's opinion and direction, his surgery skills ( he performed my upper eye bleph/lower lid fat grafting/chemical peel last year) , and injection skills unequivocally . His patient coordinator Libby is extra amazing, she actually made my appointment within a day of me calling, she will make things happen, go the extra mile for you. Libby has a very calming and caring personality, as soon as you walk in she greets you with her bubbly and sweet welcome. Libby made sure I was comfortable in the chair while waiting, offering me coffee, water. we chatted like old friends. There isn't a section for 10 stars..so Im putting them here: Dr. Qaqish 10 Stars for his infinite level of patience with me, his caring nature , and for understanding and putting up with my motive operandi (fussy, frugal patient syndrome) . Dr. Q is a board certified cosmetic surgeon, to have a doctor of this caliber performing filler and botox at an affordable price, equates to finding a rare gem. He can offer me the sun and moon, a plethora of body and face procedures, push for the slice and dice.. but thankfully he graciously lets me lead in the direction I want to go, this makes him an excellent listener , very cognisant of my cosmetic enhancing goals. In time I plan on having my neck and lower face lift done., im very excited about that too.. until then Im content with the non-invasive procedures he has available.

Dr Q and his staff have been excellent. The surgical center is very modern and comfortable. It's apparent that Dr. Qaqish is very busy, but he still gives you his full attention and is always on time. I was initially worried because he's a licensed cosmetic surgeon (not a licensed plastic surgeon), but that worry was short lived. He's devoted to his work and is inspired to help people look and feel their best. He's honest and forthright and I completely trust his opinions and skill. I would recommend him to anyone interested in having this procedure.

Dr. Clement Qaqish of San Diego Surgical Arts his new practice , commencing summer 2014 10672 Wexford St., San Diego , CA (858) 263-1800 www.sdsurgicalarts.com October 20th 2013 : 7 Weeks Post OP! I couldn't be more pleased with my results! Dr. Clement Qaqish restored my eyelids and lower eye area to their former youthful state. Please review my pictures and Real Self story, this was SMOOTH SAILING FROM 1 HOUR POST OP THROUGH TODAY!! Dr. Q actually turned back the hands of time on my face by years! It's miraculous to me. My family and friends swear he took 10+ years off my face, and eyes! I highly and enthusiastically recommend Dr. Qaqish. He's unlike the stereotypical in a hurry, diva /god -complex - cosmetic surgeon doctors I've consulted with during my extensive search for a trusted, highly trained , cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Q was everything I was searching for plus more. One thing for certain, Dr. Q's consults are patient centered, you are driving the boat so to speak, you are never rushed, or pressured into surgery, which I found refreshing. He took his time with me answering all my questions in layman terminology, even drawing pictures for me so I could fully understand his communication. He provided all the pros and cons of options discussed. I noticed he shared real examples, and got into the details of the procedure. Dr. Q is committed to keeping you healthy while simultaneously achieving your cosmetic surgery goal(s). Being a control freak, I was not an easy patient to deal with, however, Dr. Q always left his door open for me. I know.... Eyelid Surgery, you would of thought I was going through a face transplant with my numerous consults with him! He consistently exhibited professionalism, and sincere patience while addressing each of my concerns. Dr. Qaqish genuinely cares and wants you to be happy with or without his intervention. Dr. Qaqish performs his surgeries in-house, the surgery center is certified at a hospital level. This faculty is safe, new, and state of the art. You save a little money I'm sure as there is no hospital or out-patient surgery center charges, plus the address isn't Beverly Hills or La Jolla.. (no offense , but I noticed rates were much higher due to location, and this alone did not insure a competent doctor!) Thanks to Dr. Q's expert surgical team, I came out of my surgery with flying colors, my usual nauseous, vomit episode didn't happen. I experienced no pain , no anxiety, and I wasn't cold! something about surgery , I always come out of it freezing cold..this was the first pre and post surgery where I was all warm, comfortable (painless) and toasty. I encourage you to meet Dr. Qaqish, come armed with your goals, and all your questions, you will be happy you did.
