1 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Botched Lips - New York

Very strange and impatient

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Kind, Gentle, Patient and Knowledgable

I received Botox for the first time ever from Dr. Kafka and she was very kind, gentle and knowledgable. My pesky forehead wrinkle went from very deep to barely noticeable and I will definitely be going back in the future.
