I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Agnihotri and his staff for my cosmetic surgery needs. I visited the West End office for my first appointment, and the staff exceeded my expectations from start to finish. The facility was very comfortable, private and relaxing. The staff was mindful of time and very efficient in their work- I was even seen 10 minutes earlier than my scheduled appointment time! Lauren assisted Dr. A. and was incredibly welcoming, patient and kind. Dr. Agnihotri was a great listener and spent significant time talking with me to determine what my goals were and how he could achieve them. He was thorough in his explanation of treatment options and professional and courtesy during our consult. It is obvious that he is passionate about patient care and the work that he provides. During the procedure, he and his staff incorporated multiple techniques to ensure comfort with the injections- which were practically painless- and Dr. Agnihotri was very gentle and careful during treatment. I very much appreciate the high quality of work, attention to detail, and personable chair side manner. Thank you, Dr. A and team for treating me like family! I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for safe, superior results.

I can not say enough great things about Dr. Sean Pack and his team! This doctor and his amazing staff are top notch and go above and beyond in every aspect. Having a dental emergency and needing a tooth extracted, Dr. Pack talked to me about what would be done to get me out of pain. He not only spoke to me about my concerns and minor setbacks I had but he listened... he cares about his patients. This kind of concern and caring demeanor cannot be faked. He genuinely cares and his very knowledgeable in all areas of his profession. Dr. Pack and his staff were prompt in returning calls and getting me an appointment in more than a timely manner. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pack to anyone that has oral surgery needs.
