I met with Dr. Said's assistant for followup from surgery. She spent considerable amount of time explaining the after care at home. She also said that I should call the office any time if I felt that the surgical area was not healing properly. Very impressed.

The only problem is even though I completely filled out the information on this app the front office had no knowledge nor the reason for my visit. Perhaps they need to be notified more promptly or they need to check your notifications more often.

Love Dr. Said. She has always been spot on with her treatment diagnosis for me. If your looking for someone who is the best in Botox Injections, she is the one you want to go to. She makes you look sonatural that people notice a subtle difference but don’t realize it is due to having Botox.
