    -Wendy K

    -Alisa V 
  • “Dr. Lanfranchi isn’t like any doctor I’ve met…he only works on faces…he’s truly down to earth and has a great bedside manner too! I didn’t feel like I was going in for surgery…it was more like a “treatment”.

    -Jill H 
  • “The day of my procedure came and I was a little scared, but everything that they said was true! This was easier than a trip to the dentist! My pain was minimal, and Dr. Lanfranchi was caring and talked to me through every step.”

    -CHERYL I

    -SUSAN M 
  • “People cannot believe their eyes when they see me! I wish I would have done it sooner. Easily I can get by with saying I’m 55 or 60 years old…can’t ask for more than that.”

    -WANDA B (AGE 75) 
  • “I was very impressed with Dr. Lanfranchi and his staff from my first visit. They are very professional, treat their patients with compassion, take pride in their work, and care about their patients. Highly recommended!”
