"I was so happy that I found Dr. Kashanian. I had been to another doctor who had tried to convince me that I could have my procedure done without anesthesia and in his office. After a very informative consultation with Dr. K and some further research into the matter, I was informed that my results would be much more safe and successful with the way he recommended.
