5 out of 5 stars ArteFill

Under Eye Bag Diminishing Through Use of Filler - Portland, OR

While not exactly right on schedule (might want to bring a book or your knitting), I was extremely pleased that, once in consultation with Dr. K, I had absolutely 100% of his undivided attention and interest. Dr. K was very informative, explained details carefully, and listened to my concerns. I left the office with a realistic treatment plan in hand. I found Dr. K to be very attentive and thorough and interested in making sure that I was understanding everything he was explaining to me. His office staff were also very professional, friendly, and sensitive.

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

A Man's Very Positive Ultherapy Experience - Portland, OR

I must say I found Dr. K and his entire staff to be very friendly, helpful, competent and highly professional. Every step of the way I was kept very well informed of what the procedure was, how it functioned, how I would likely feel during the procedure and the likely results. I can whole heartedly recommend Dr. Key, his staff and the Ultherapy treatment to anyone, man or woman.

5 out of 5 stars Ultherapy

Incredible Results and Exceptional Customer Service - Portland, OR

As expected, Dr. K and Shellie G. made the process seamless and comfortable. I have been a loyal Key Laser customer for several years; I would recommend Dr. K's CO2/Ultherapy treatments to anyone who wants younger looking skin.

5 out of 5 stars SmartXide

Just Had my Smartxide DOT Therapy for Acne Scarring

I mentioned this in my review, and I'll re-post it here: My doctor and his staff are just simply the best. I did research for about one year before choosing this doctor - he's one of the most highly respected professionals in this industry. Laser manufacturers approach him specifically to give feedback on new equipment. He fixes laser mistakes made by other doctors - this was huge for me. The type of laser you get is not as important as the person wielding it. My doctor is a true artist and I trust him 100%. He understands the complexity of laser treatments and customized the plan for my skin. He does not have the best communication skills or listening skills (seems to have a bit of social disorder) but it doesn't keep him from performing at an A+ level. His staff more than makes up for it - they are great listeners, great communicators and they make a great team.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

Great Team of Pros! - Portland, OR

Great fraxel and cool sculpting experiences! Excellent results!

5 out of 5 stars Sclerotherapy

Overall a Great Experience-pleased with Results - Portland, OR

There wasn't after care follow up scheduled for my procedure so I couldn't really rate that as excellent, it would have been nice to have a follow up to see if the results I got were typical.

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

What to Expect from CO2 Dot Therapy - Portland, OR

The staff are with you every step of the way. Putting your mind at ease by explaining everything to expect from the beginning of the procedure to the end.

5 out of 5 stars SmartXide

SmartXide is Fabulous - Portland, OR

Dr. K is a perfectionist and meticulous. It is obvious that he knows his craft inside and out, and that he takes pride in being the best he can be. I trust him implicitly.

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Better Than I Had Ever Hoped For! - Portland, OR

Dr. K and his staff were very professional and courteous. I was a candidate for Laser Lipolysis. Dr. K advised what results I could expect from this procedure, as well as other procedures. I had done my research, and even considered traditional liposuction. In the end, the results were even better than projected, and there was virtually NO recovery. I had the procedure at the end of the week, and was in the office Monday a.m.!

5 out of 5 stars PicoSure

Loved PicoSure FOCUS and Key Laser - Portland, OR

Dr. Key and his staff are the best. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I was well taken care of. First they took before photos. Then the started the numbing process. The experience level is top notch. Beautiful office. As promised there was no downtime. I am looking forward to my next PicoSure.
