"I love the work Dr David Kowalczyk does! I get Dysport for wrinkle prevention & sometimes a little filler and it looks TOTALLY NATURAL! Great results, minimal to no bruising - highly recommend."
"The results were better than I could ever have imagined - Whooo Hoooo! I couldn't be happier with the fantastic results of my face lift. Dr. K and his entire team were extremely knowledgeable, personable, kind, and most important of all, patient. If I could, I'd give them 500 stars instead of 5. Dr. K did an unbelievable job of explaining everything to me by showing me exactly what the procedure entailed on a computer and what the post-op would be like. The results were better than I could ever have imagined! I never felt rushed or "encouraged" to get it done. Lauren, the amazing Patient Coordinator, was so kind and responsive when my caregiver texted her about every concern I had during the first week of healing. From Marisol and Paxton at the front desk smiling and greeting me by name at every visit, to Lisa and Sarah with their wonderfully effective bruise treatments, to Sarah K.'s fantastic post-op care, I felt medically "hugged" from start to finish. My family and friends say I look 15 years younger, and I have to agree with them!"
"No more breathing issues or headaches, plus a straighter nose - Triple Win - I went to see Dr. Kowalczyk about 7 months ago to fix my broken nose from a bad fall. My septum was significantly deviated and I had major breathing troubles and headaches. Functionality was my main focus. Dr. Kowalczyk fixed my septum and it ended up straightening my crooked nose a ton. No more breathing issues or headaches, plus a straighter nose. Triple win."
"He designed a treatment plan tailored to exactly what I needed - I went in for my first time getting Botox, and I was a little nervous. Dr Kowalczyk took the time to sit with me and educate me on how it works! I immediately felt so much more comfortable. I told him the areas that bothered me, and he gave me some great suggestions with his expert opinion. He really listened to what I was looking for and designed a treatment plan tailored to exactly what I needed. The process was quick and easy, and he made the appointment enjoyable as well. I loved the teamwork of this visit, and I am already looking forward to my next visit. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr K to anyone looking for injectables and facial plastic surgery as well. It was exactly what I was looking for and more!"
"First Time Botox Recipient - Dr. K was great. It was my first time getting botox and he explained the procedure along with the benefits and risks. His explanations for all my questions were thorough and informed. 10/10 would recommend seeing Dr. K!"
