"I've been going here for a few years now. My skin has improved dramatically under the care of Dr. Terkonda and now Anita. The products are pricy but well worth it because they actually work, unlike any other products I've ever tried. Claudia and Natalia are terrific and provide great service as well. Highly recommended for people with problem skin like mine!"
"I loved my experience here. Anita and Claudia were very helpful and gave me great advice for my skin. I would recommend this location to anyone because I felt very welcomed and it looks amazing plus I love the products."
"It was my first time here and the entire staff was so nice. I had my appointment with Anita and she took her time to explain everything thoroughly. I was well informed on the various ways I can get the perfect skin I've always wanted. I can't wait to try the products."
"Claudia and Natalia are so nice. I envy their almost perfect skin. Very efficient! Same with Anita."
"I LOOOOOVE this place! I have been seeing Anita Gardener to help with issues on my skin since June 1st. She started me on a Zo Medical regimen which is extremely intense but I see amazing results already. Getting great skin is a long expensive process but I feel like I'm in good hands and its worth the $$. Anita is so nice and understanding. She explained everything, answered all my questions and takes her time. I don't feel rushed. The entire staff is also so nice! They greet you ask you how you're doing they make you feel reassured with the whole process because it isn't easy to be red in the face and peeling for weeks at a time...but right now it seems worth it. I can't wait to get my skin where I want it to be."
