5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
I was new to all things cosmetic, and Dr. Retief made me feel so comfortable with everything we were going to do. She took the time to teach me about the aging process and my options. I was very confident in my decisions and her capability, plus she's hilarious. I felt like I was hanging out with a friend, not just being treated by my doctor.

1 out of 5 stars Mole Removal
I chose Dr. Retief because I thought a doctor in the posh Green Hills area would be superior. I was wrong. Green Hills Dermatology is extremely unprofessional. The cons were getting billed numerous times after I had already paid in full. Green Hills Dermatology sent repeated letters threatening about bill collection and each time I sent them a copy of the cleared check from my bank, proving I had paid in full. After more threatening letters, I went there in person and presented a copy of the cleared check in person. A male staff member got became incredibly rude and condescending instead of apologizing.
