Dr. Ciaravino listened to my concerns and truly did a beautiful job. He is truly an artist with his ability and truly did a beautiful job.

Just wanted to let y’all know that I think that Dr. Ciaravino is by far the most talented doc around. I had my surgery on Monday and haven’t had a pain killer since Tuesday morning. Not even a Tylenol. There was no bruising or swelling at all. I am just amazed at how simple and painless the whole thing was. I attribute this to Dr. Ciaravino’s talent and gentleness.
