"Dr. Narin Apisarnthanarax was very personable and took time to explain the procedure he performed."
"They were very helpful and very kind. Gave me great information and handouts for future use. Very friendly and I didn't have to wait hardly at all! I highly recommend Dr. Narin."
"Fighting Wrinkles - Wrinkles are helped with filler as well as Dysport and the combination works well. I am always pleased with the results. There are other treatments that I have had in the past that have been helpful as well. I recently had microneedling which seems to have worked well; it was much easier to tolerate than Ultherapy."
"Dr. Joe takes his time to listen to you, very patient and keeps up to date on all new procedures. His medical staff are all awesome and go out of their way to make your visit very comfortable. I have been a patient their for about 35-30 years. First with Dr. Joe father. His father -awesome as well! I highly recommend Clear Lake Dermatology!"
