Dr Mowlavi Complaints

Dr. Mowlavi Complaints

The truth is simple.  Every cosmetic surgeon has complaints.

"You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time” 

John Lydgate approximately 1440 AD

Over 500 years ago, these words were first attributed to John Lydgate.  It was true then, and it is true today.  Cosmetic surgery is an art and a skill.  Every patient's body is different, and each patient has different expectations.  When choosing a surgeon for your procedure, we encourage you to do your research and listen carefully to what most patients have to say.

  • Take a good look at your prospective surgeon's results.
  • Listen to people who have been his patients.
  • People complain - it does happen.  Good surgeons listen to these complaints and learn from them.

For Your Consideration

"I have never been found liable of medical malpractice. In my more than 15 years of practice, as is very common among plastic surgeons, I have been a defendant in medical malpractice lawsuits. In each of these lawsuits, however, I either defeated the case by defense verdict or the actions were voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiff: mutually resolved with no admission of liability, or remain pending. Each of these civil cases can be found by a case search and are public records so I believe anyone who wishes to obtain information about their status can easily do so online."
