"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. No short cuts or fast track here. For a doctor who is highly knowledgeable in his field and looks forward for best results you must see Dr. Kashanian. I’ve recommended him to friends as well, all of whom have been very grateful to have met and used him." Self-Verified Patient on July 28, 2019 via Vitals
