Sometimes the patients say they do not even feel the injections. He is highly skilled at the use of all kinds of medications for therapeutic injections.

In 2008 he established Mountain Radiance as a parallel practice to the interventional one. This has done so well that he made the decision to focus 100% on use of a variety of interventional techniques to manage cosmetic concerns.
