"Very professional and to the point. He is the real deal"
"Came here after a ton of research. I got armpit liposuction done a little over a month ago and the results are fantastic. More than that, I’m leaving this review because Dr Hakimi and all his staff are GREAT! They’re so kind and accommodating and they make sure you’re comfortable. I asked a lot of questions thru this process because I’ve never gotten any cosmetic procedure done before and he never made me feel rushed. Would highly recommend!! I actually go to him now for Botox too. It’s a little out of the way from where I live but worth it to go to someone I trust"
"Dr. Hakimi and his staff are the best! I had lipo done under local anesthesia and though I was nervous, everyone made me feel so safe & comfortable throughout. The procedure itself was quick and painless! Dr. Hakimi’s truly great at what he does and has changed my life forever by fixing this insecurity of mine. Thank you Dr. Hakimi, Diana, Mel, and the rest of the staff for all the care! I am forever grateful!"
"I had such an amazing experience with Dr. Hakimi! Right from the start, his precision made me feel confident and at ease. It's clear how smart and knowledgeable he is. I truly appreciate his expertise and the comfort he provided throughout the process. Now, a week post-surgery, I'm grateful for the seamless process as I haven't encountered any complications or concerns. Highly recommend!"
