When I first came to the office, I had a keloid scar. Dr. Zweifler was able to correct this successfully, as well as minimizing swelling through another procedure. I am very happy with the procedures I have had done by Dr. Zweifler.

Excellent Experience

Dr. Zweifler was recommended by a friend who also had an excellent experience with her breast reduction. Dr. Z is an experienced professional. She as well as her staff were informative, supportive and pleasant. I actually ended up having other procedures and referring my sister who also had a great experience.
