No complaints. Everyone is professional, friendly and knowledgeable.

Botox Cosmetic

I enjoyed the pleasantness of the employees, the atmosphere and decor of the office, the complimentary coffee, and especially the skill and personality of Dr. Balikian. The botox eliminated the wrinkles.

Botox Cosmetic Injectable Fillers Juvederm®

YES!!!! All the doctor I have seen are the best..Much better the US doctors..

Botox Cosmetic

Always a great experience, with incredible results. Dr. B and his staff are incredibly efficient, competent, and professional! I'll never go anywhere else. The confidence I feel, knowing I look the best I can, is the best part of any treatments or procedures I receive from Dr. Balikian.

Injectable Fillers

I thought I would see a greater result

Face Lift

Everyone at the facility were friendly and informative about the procedure that was done. I am very satisfied with the way I look after the surgery was performed. I look refreshed. I would and have highly recommended Dr Balikian to other people who want procedures done. I feel as though I look younger. I am having other procedures done by this clinic to improve my physical appearance.

Botox Cosmetic

I have only received Botox,but I recommended several people to ur practice. Clean , comfortable inviorment. I like dr B!

Botox Cosmetic

It was straightforward and the doctor provided treatment immediately after consultation. I'm very happy with the result and the price of treatment. I got what I paid for. It was a fair price for the product, and the doctor knew exactly how much botox to provide for the optimal result. I'm happy.

Face Lift

Everyone on the staff was very nice and knowledgeable. I never felt rushed by the doctor. I've even called and asked additional questions, and found everyone to be very patient and understanding. I'm looking forward to my surgery experience.


The whole experience was exactly what the Physician explained and the booklet was great. I don't try to cover up my profile and am very proud of it. Thanks Dr. Balikian and staff.

Mole Removal

Wonderful customer service & they do a great job in there work !

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Balikian was able to repair a nose that had been worked on by three other plastic surgeons. My nose was crushed literally. Additionally he did a mini facelift and I feel 10 years younger. His stuff is always engaging, sweet and funny. Which makes me feel at home. I feel a part of the Balikian family and see myself going back time and time again, as I age, for tuneups. I recommend him to everyone who is interested in plastic surgery. [name]

Felt very comfortable w/staff and also speaking to the Dr., very professionally and very honest, about what was best for me.

I would have to say that I felt confident that I was dealing with a very highly skilled doctor. After reviewing his credentials and seeing his demeanor with other visits i knew I could have trust in him. His staff is comforting, attentive and very accommodating. Overall i knew I would be in good hands.

The staff and Dr. actually expressed their care and extreme knowledge of what I was inquiring about. No high pressure sales at all!
