I'll start to say that my experience with dr. Gary Linkov was amazing. He is very warm and tender, listens carefully to what you want done. When it comes to your face, you just can't trust any doctor, however I made a great choice with him, and I dont regret it. Procedure went smooth and painless. He makes you feel calm.
