5 out of 5 stars Botox

Satisfied Patient - Grosse Pointe, MI

I have been to other doctors in the area and they do not compare to Dr Ferrara. I was referred by a couple moms at my kids school to try Dr Ferrara. I am so glad I did. He listened to my concerns and made me feel very comfortable. I am really happy with results from my Botox treatment. His staff was also very knowledgable and took the time to answer all my questions. I will not go anywhere...

Dr. Ferrara is very highly knowledgeable not only in Dermatology but also in all aspects of cosmetic procedures and treatments. I felt very comfortable with his bedside manners.
