5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Great Outcome and Wonderful Bedside Manner - Chicago, IL

I saw Dr. Pak as a referral from my dermatologist. I work in healthcare and am very critical of service and quality. From my first phone call to the Wheaton Clinic to my last post op visit, Dr Pak's office was fantastic. He is one of the few physicians today who really takes the time to speak with you. I came with a page of questions and he answered every one. The nurses and techs in the office were great as well. I have referred others to Dr Pak and everyone speaks very highly of him. If you are considering getting your eyes done and live in the Chicago area ...make the trip to Wheaton to see Dr. Pak.

Great Bedside Manners and Excellent Surgeon! - Naperville, IL

Botox Experience - Naperville, IL

Dr. P is extremely patient and devotes a great deal of time to each appointment. I never feel rushed as I often do with other doctors. He genuinely cares about his patients and takes the time to treat them with great precision. I see him 3-4x/year for Botox injections and at each appointment he spends a lot of time asking me questions about my last injections, how I felt, was I pleased, is there anything I would like different this time. He also explains what he is doing every single appointment so I never feel concerned. He is highly skilled and I have been extremely pleased with my results.

I Am a Believer! - Naperville, IL

I had botox done for two vertical lines between brows. I am in my late thirty and I noticed these lines about two years ago and it started to really bother me. I wanted to see someone who is an expert for treating this region and figured that eye plastic surgeon would be a great choice. my doctor told me that it takes about 2 weeks to see the maximum effect. I didn't bruise or swell at...

Good As New! - Wheaton, IL

After having MOHS surgery to remove basal cell cancer on my lower eyelid, Dr. Pak expertly reconstructed my eyelid in what I would say was a complicated surgery. After just a few months, no one could tell that I had anything done! Because my eye had to be sewn shut for 6 weeks, I was pretty apprehensive about the ordeal, but Dr. Pak's reassurance and awesome bedside manner made the experience...

Botox to Masseter for TMJ and Jaw Slimming - Chicago, IL

Dr. Pak is super personable, straightforward, and efficient. He explained the procedure in detail and warned me of pain, but it was not bad at all. He is also very handsome! : )

11 Mad-tired Look. Wheaton, IL

I've never met a doctor that is so approachable, very friendly,  nice and most of all very honest in my whole life. Maybe that is just my own opinion but in my book Dr. Pak is topnotch. The quality of service he provided is really remarkable  even before I've met him for the 1st time for consultation. I sent him directly a bunch of emails asking and  inquiring about botox and fillers and his response was really quick and assuring.When I walked into his clinic I inquired him as well about fillers and he honestly told me that fillers will not do any much of a difference in my face and I really don't needed it. So we proceeded with the original botox plan and he told me it will take 3 days to see the full effect of botox.3 days had past and every time I looked at the mirror I see no difference. It made me think that maybe botox was not really meant for me and my body rejected it (should I cal Dr. Pak for a refund? Haha kidding) but from what I read from different people sometimes it will take a week or 2 depending on how your body taking it...which is true after 1 week of waiting my frown lines eased up and the "11" is not prominent anymore. Today I walked in to work and my co workers was asking me if I did have a very relaxing weekend as I look refreshed.I swear to myself that day after I walked out Dr. Pak's clinic that I would never ever tell anyone I got botox...but he did such an amazing job that it's only fair to let everyone know that he is really really good and knowledgeable on his field. So I started telling about him to my circle of friends and then to some women at work. Am I not embarrass about it? No not really...this guy deserve all the credits so here I am. Once this botox wears off I will be coming back again to see him for sure.Oh and 1 more thing when I was at his clinic the lady that processed my payment messed up and charged me twice for consultation. I called his clinic numerous times trying to sort my billing issues and  I got passed along with 1 person after the other some are a bit rude and  not too friendly...3 days later with 0 results and don't know who else to approach to... I emailed Dr. Pak directly and he sort out my double charges right at the same day. 1 phone call from him to his office and the billing department from wheaton eye clinic refunded me that same day! Yaaay!

Dr. Pak. Was overall outstanding. He was honest and compassionate, and left me feeling confident in his practice and skills. He answered all questions I had, and even questions I didn't know I had. His knowledge and personality make him ever so admirable and a definite referral for my family and friends. I want everyone to know what a wonderfully responsive, at tentative, and kind doctor he is! 5 stars all around.
