5 out of 5 stars Lifestyle Lift

I Wanted a Natural-looking Facelift.

Dr. Malhotra is soft spoken and personable. I never felt rushed in her office, and she took time with me--understanding exactly what I wanted as well as describing what would happen during the procedure. I knew there would be someone to answer the phone if I called during off hours with questions or concerns, but everything went so smoothly, I never needed to call.

The consultant Roseanne was so patient with all of my questions and walked me through the financing process. Dr. Malhotra and the nurse practitioner Paula told me what to expect and they were spot on. The procedure was...

2 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Not pleased with the treatment

Dr Malhorta is a very nice doctor but she seems a little "spacey" & unorganized. I received juvederm for the turn down corner of the mouth. If I didn't say something, she would have not cleansed the area before inserting the needle. (scary) Afterwards I knew I would be swollen so I gave it over a week, during that time I was uneven and the filler was very lumpy (particularly on one side)...
