Rising Top Dr. (Plastic Surgeon) In Washington, DC

After consulting with Washington D.C.'s top doctors; Dr. K was my #1 Choice. My first appointment with him he was very pleasant, honest, and very straight forward. He gave me so much time to discuss what I was trying to accomplish for a natural look. I highly recommend Dr. K, he is outstanding, and he definetely exceeded my expectations!!

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Smartlipo - Flanks - Chevy Chase, MD

My Doc has the best bed-side manner. He doesn't rush you and really makes you feel comfortable. I never felt pressured into the procedure. Nor did he try to sell me on getting other area's done. I have not had the procedure done yet, but I am confident that everything will go smoothly. His office staff are also very friendly. They are very personable and are able to answer most questions. If not, they are very quick in getting replies back from the doctor.

Decided to Give Lipotherme a Try (Lower Abdomen and Flanks)

Update:  December 7 Today is Monday, and I went back to work no problem after having the procedure done on Friday morning.  Surprisingly, the swelling hasn't really intensified much at all.  I expected to be much more swollen.  I am, however, extremely bruised - very dark purple around my lower abdomen and sides.  I'm using Arnica gel 2-3 times a day, which...

Best Surgeon, A+ - Chevy Chase, MD

I went to Dr. K, and he took fantastic care of me. He explained the procedures and answered all of my questions. He is very friendly, and a true master of his craft. He was able to schedule me for surgery that week. His bedside manner before, during, and after the surgeries was amazing.

Finally Going Through with It. :-D - Boyds, MD

So far he has been great, I have to go back for another consultation since my body has changed so much and to make sure that the price is still the same.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck with lipo, DC Cosmetics Chevy Chase MD

I have been in the office once & spoken to the staff over the phone several times. One appointment for a consult with the Dr, NOT their nurse! Love that! Very different in the larger office in Chevy Chase. Seems he is stretched too thin. At least in the Frederick office (when it was open) he had plenty of time to spend with you. Now post op, he seems rushed. Edited June 13th 2015, Seems I may have come into the office on overly booked days or emergency appointments. My appointment today was much different. Early in the morning, spent a lot of time with me and was extremely helpful in answering questions. I think some days are better than others but its nice to know that if I need to see him when he is completely booked... he will find a way to see me, booked or not.
