"Hi Dr. Pinsky! Just wanted to say thank you so much for my procedure. It’s life-changing. My family loves it! I love the results already and I can’t wait to see the changes as time goes. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable throughout this process, answering all my questions and getting on the phone with me when I was a nervous wreck! Thank you."
