"Made sure I was educated, comfortable (pain-tolerance), listened to every question .. and wait times in the office were only just minutes (if that) before I was seen!..." "I'm extremely happy with my results, and the care I have received from Dr. Kayastha." "Everyone tells me how great I look and I owe it all to him!"

5 out of 5 stars Injectable Fillers

I had an excellent experience

Dr K is personable, professional and eased my apprehension about bruising after injectable fillers (I had moderate bruising after seeing another surgeon years prior). Instead of rushing right into it, he suggested that I make an appointment when I was ready. I did. He administered 3 different fillers on 3 areas of my face. Not only did I barely feel any of them, but I had absolutely no...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Reclaim and Enhance Your Life - Albany, NY

For the past 26 years, I have lived with chronic neck and shoulder pain that has gotten progressively worse with osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. I’ve found temporary relief with massages, deep heat, chiropractic treatments, physical therapy, muscle relaxers and pain management. I thought for sure the chronic discomfort would disappear after two shoulder replacements, but it did not. But o...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Doctor "Feel Good"

Dr. K, as I affectionately call him, is amazingly talented in addressing my complex facial needs. And I speak from experience having been treated by more than seven MDs in two states over the past nine years. I have been a patient of his since 2014, and I trust no other doctor to treat me. Dr. K is meticulous, honest, fair and compassionate; his skills are incomparable. When I leave his...

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

incredible doctor

Dr. Kayastha was great. I got liposculpt done and he was nothing but professional, kind, efficient, and had a great aesthetic. He set realistic expectations and explained the procedure clearly early on in the consultation. Day of the procedure he made everything go painlessly and recovery time was fast. His staff also did a great job scheduling followup appointments. Overall such an amazing...

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

I have new confidence in my appearance!

I was referred by a former patient of Dr Kayastha who raved about him. At my first consultation and on the day of my procedure, Dr K spent time with me making sure all my questions were answered. His technique is amazing and he has stellar interpersonal skills that put you at ease immediately. I spent years researching this procedure dreaming about the someday when I would have "my arms done"...

5 out of 5 stars MTF Breast Augmentation

Dr. Kayastha is the Best!

Dr. Kayastha is the absolute best! I saw him for sub-muscular breast augmentation, initially in January 2017. Overall, throughout the process of appointments and precautionary checks, he was very honest, personable, professional, and a nice friendly person. When I disclosed to him that I am transgender, Dr. Kayastha was still happy and willing to treat me. I've always felt comfortable when...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Very Pleased Patient

I cannot begin to express how impressed I am with the breast augmentation, tummy tuck and muscle repair Dr. Kayashta has given me. I did a lot of research and had consultations with other doctors, but hands down he is the kindest and most informative of them all. I am so glad I chose Dr. K to do my surgeries. He educated me about things that months of research on the internet could not. He...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Very Good Experience

Dr. K and his lovely staff made me feel like a valued patient! I initially visited the office for a consultation because of the positive reviews I had read on him from my own research. The before and after pictures of breast reductions on his website looked excellent. I knew I was in good hands because of the time he and his staff took in office before surgery to listen to my expectations and...

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Great Experience from the Consultation to the procedure and results

From the first 5 minutes of the initial consultation I was impressed with Dr. K. I loved the approach he took. He was extremely detailed in his explanation and just really took his time to make sure I understood not only the procedures but honest with me if I didn't need. He truly educated me on the body and how it ages vs. trying to sell me a service. Right away I was very comfortable...
