As A recently retired MD Dermatologist, I can appreciate good medicine when I see it. I went to Dr. Hargrove upon the recommendation of a physician colleague, and I am quite pleased.
Dr. Hargrove's cosmetic surgical expertise was excellent and immediate improvement was seen. My upper eyelids have been re-created with a completely natural appearance… Not tight, slanted, nor asymmetrical. The upper eyelids were covered by insurance, but I also elected to do the lower lids. Neither he nor his staff pressured me into that self-pay decision… They just gave me the costs, pros, and cons. Because I elected to do the lower lids also, my surgery was done at the Eshetics Center.
Dr. Hargrove himself is a busy man, and do not expect him to spend a lengthy time with you. However his demeanor and manner were thorough, pleasant, and he was complete in answering any questions. His staff (primarily Jennifer) DOES spend a long time explaining it all… What to expect, how to care for the upper and lower lids, and she also gives you precise written handouts. Everything she and Dr. Hargrove told me to expect was 100% accurate, so it was very reassuring during my recovery. Follow up visits also have been "spot on" with instructions, guidelines, and even a bag of cosmetic products to help the skin recover! The front staff was pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable too.
Bottom line: my physician colleague recommended the best – Dr. Hargrove and the Esthetic Center staff are expert and professional. The whole process was flawless.
