Truly amazing! I highly recommended Dr. K she is professional and experienced. I am thrilled with her work. Her knowledge and her honesty had me feeling very comfortable and all that I asked for. No pressure and all is explained before anything is done. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and comforting. You can't go wrong with an experienced doctor!
Dr. K was fabulous. She was very informative on the areas I needed fillers in and what would work best for me. I saw immediate improvement and am so happy with the results. I will definitely return and also refer her to my friends/family. I’ve been a resident of NV for 18 years and have yet to find an injector I like. I’m thrilled to have finally found one. She’s a keeper.
