Is There a Doctor in Atlanta, GA That Knows How to Use Botox for Bells Palsy?

I have read that botox can help to bring back some movements in the face for bells palsy after using it for a period of time to balance the facial nerves. Is there a doctor in Atlanta that knows about using botox for bells palsy? I don't take pictures anymore.

   If you are referring to Botox being used for treating synkinesis secondary to Bell's palsy, please see a board certified plastic surgeon for this.
