Patient Reviews
Jun 29, 2023
The BEST at treating Blepharospasm & Hemifacial Spasm. He used to practice in NY and I have not been the same since he left the state. I wish he would come back to do my injections. I haven't found anyone that can help me like he did. It is very frustrating that no one in my area (or even an hour or 2 away) can give me the relief that he did.
