I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work...

I had multiple warts on my hands and legs for the past 5 years. It was just something I learned to live with.

I had sun damaged skin with several sun spots on my face. My entire attention was on my face, and I worried what people were thinking when they looked at me. I’m a vice president in banking and image is very important especially in the leadership role I am in. I saw Dr. Kormeili 4 months ago...

I was working a lot and very stressed out. One day I looked up in the mirror and I had look like I had aged about 10 years and as a woman we like to stay looking young. So a friend referred me to Dr. Kormeili for a little Botox and fillers. She was great! She took care of everything that was bothering me and then some...

How can someone be sad around Dr. Kormeili? She is a burst of sunshine but most of all she cares about her patients. Dr. Kormeili knew and worked on my husband before he recently passed away.

I had been taking antibiotic medicines for over 2 years to help control my acne; once I was prescribed Accutane in less than 3 months my face was completely gone. Of course before taking Accutane I was constantly aware of my skin, always trying to find ways to hide it and sometimes it got so hard I didn’t even want to go to school....

~C.J., Los Angeles

SHE IS THE BEST! Considerate, compassionate and thoroughly professional.

Sexual intercourse is such an integral part of a happy marriage.
