I Love the New Me - Charlotte, NC

Dr. D is a miracle worker and I am so grateful that I found him. He is a caring and skilled surgeon and my Lifestyle Lift was worth every dime I paid. The laser work he did around my mouth and chin came out beautifully. It did take a little time to heal but that was expected and worth the wait. I'm now asked if I qualify for the Senior Discount at facilities. I am 72. I will return in about 10 years for another one. : )

Outstanding Doctor - Huntersville, NC

Had a consultation and a treatment with Dr.D, and overall he is an outstanding doctor. Two highlights from my visit: 1. he did an awesome job with the injectable fillers (the best job I've had - he is an artist). 2. Was very honest about what treatments may and may not work for my condition (melasma). He could have sold me all kinds of things, but his work ethic is at a higher level. He doesn't do any of the "cheap selling" doctors at medspa's tend to do.

I Would Do It Again! Great Results-very Happy!

Be sure you check on the qualifications of your doctor. Some facilities may not have Board Certified Dr. doing your work. My doctor is double board certified.

He explained all the procedures so I could understand it. But he puts you at ease the minute you meet him. I give him the highest of marks. And would go to him again in a heartbeat.

Dr. Diaz was excellent! I heard him talking throughout the entire procedure - all things that made me smile! On the last visit he was very pleased with the results (as am I)! He told my husband to enjoy his young wife and to show me off! What a compliment!
