"The clinic itself was decent"
3 50Reviewed 19 May 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dermatologist Consultation
While I can commend the clinic on some level of professionalism, I must say however I am concerned about their treatment for wrinkles procedure. After I had the procedure I could not open my eyes for three weeks. I was told this was due to a complication despite the fact that I have undergone the treatment several time before with no complications.

The clinic itself was decent but I doubt if I will ever use them again because of the complication with my procedure.

"will definitely be returning again!"
5 50Reviewed 12 Aug 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Tattoo Removal
I had tattoo removal at this clinic and my skin reacted badly to the laser. When I called they booked me right away to meet with one of their doctor in between patients, they were quick, friendly and they reassured me. I walked out with a prescription and notes were put in my file for future. I am very pleased with the service I received at this clinic and I would certainly recommend.
The doctors are extremely knowledgable and the overall atmosphere was very pleasant. I recommend this to anyone looking for this type of service. My mother really enjoyed her treatment and will definitely be returning again!

"Will be back for my next injection."
5 50Reviewed 08 Aug 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Dermatologist Consultation
I was referred to Dr Devani 6 months ago due to adult acne issues and my experience has been very positive. Dr Devani recommended some treatments before prescribing which has been the best solution for my adult acne. I cannot be happier with the results. Dr Devani has been very helpful and always available. Also, the staff at the front desk is extremely helpful. I could not be more pleased and I would recommend this doctor to anyone who is looking for an excellent dermatologist!
The clinic was very clean and has a great reputation. Got a referral to the cosmetic clinic first then saw Dr Alim Devani on the medical side. Great experience. The clinic is busy but very well run and organized. Will be back for my next injection.
Treated By: Alim Total Amount Paid $650
