Dr. Horton, I cannot thank you enough for… well… saving my life! You detected a melanoma when you were doing a scar revision on me after my liposuction procedures and ensured the melanoma was biopsied and completely removed, sending me to the right Oncologist afterward for additional treatment. Thanks for your amazing care medically and aesthetically. I’m so appreciative of you and the outcome(s). Thank you!
