Patient Stopped in While I Was Consulting About Having the Same Thing Done. - Hickory, NC

Dr. S is truthfull about what to expect and is highly qualified. I personally saw a lady while I was in for a consultation.

Not only she is happy, her husband is also.

She couldn't stop raving about how great he was, and she showed me her after pictures and her...
