5 out of 5 stars Sculptra
Dr Altman explained everything in detail before the procedure with both the benefits and potential side effects. I was given both literature & an informative DVD and felt very comfortable with my choice. Dr. Altman’s credentials are superb as is her knowledge and experience in the dermatology field. She is an extremely caring doctor and she takes the time to actively listen and talk to her patents and explain everything in great detail. Her staff is courteous and friendly and they diligently reached out to me for post op check ins. The results after my first session exceeded my expectations and Dr. Altman is truly gifted and talented with regards to facial rejuvenation.
