All I CAN SAY IS RUN FROM THIS NUT JOB!
She burned the hell out of me, and had the nerve to say it was my skin.
and has no ideal how to work the equipment.
I'm so upset over this.

I would not recommend coming here at all. The positive reviews here I wouldn't doubt were her staff, friends or family! I dont't like writing bad reviews but I must warn people.

I went in for a simple botox procedure and paid for extra units. Dr. Bonakadar not only has HORRIBLE bedside manners she was very short and seemed to be in a hurry. She did not ice the area long enough and literally stabbed me! She went through the muscle and into the bone. After she was done she rushed out of the room to finish wrapping up some packages she had in the office. Meanwhile I was left with three punctures that were bleeding. She did not give me any instruction as post-treatment care and the puncture sites that were bleeding were never addressed by here. I told the office staff Susie about it who gave me something to put on it.

The next day I was left with a massive lump on my forehead. I phoned the office to talk to the Dr. and even came in so she could look at it. She acted like it was a pimple a "zit" she called it. It was in fact not a zit. I had the worse migraines for days post the treatment and spoke with Dr. Bonakdar several times and was in her office so that she could treat it. I ended up bringing my sister on the last visit to her. Dr. B saw the huge lump on my forehead and said that bacteria must of entered the site when she injected me. So, I ended up having to get this lump lanced and treated.

DO NOT USE YOUR COUPON... I did further research on her and saw horrible reviews on Vitals.com http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Monica_Bonakdar.html#reviews

She is very rude and got nasty with me on the phone when I was concerned about and infection growing. She calls herself a dermatologist yet doesn't give a damn about a persons care after a procedure or being gentle with the needle.... She stabbed me and left me jacked up for over Two weeks. I am now under the care of another Dr. treating the area so that it will not scar..

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME!

This doctor is a complete hack and has scarred me for life. She has also burned, scarred, and bruised a number of my friends in the community. She has the latest and greatest in everything (according to her staff) but apparently doesn't know how to use any of it! Her bedside manner is horrible after she collects your money and then god forbid there is a problem, she avoids you like the plague! I would not recommend her to my worst enemy.

I had fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and ArteFill with Dr. Bonakdar before my class reunion. I looked great and felt very confident. Everyone commented on how well I looked. I have recommended Dr. Bonakdar to many of my girl friends wanting to do the "Jennifer Special"

I come to Orange County twice a year and each time I make sure to call ahead of time for an appointment with Dr. Bonakdar. She is so good at injecting Botox and Juvederm that I will never let anyone do these treatments for me. When she first met me, she did a full consultation for me and made some recommendations on what I can do to improve my looks. I took her up on her advice and am so glad with my results. I have had a few girlfriends fly into stay with me just to see her and they all thank me for the referral.

I was nervous when I first got to Dr. Bonakdar's office because it is so plush and beautiful that I thought I am going to have to pay a lot. But to my surprise, her fees are very reasonable and actually less than the medi-spa nurse place I was going to before.
She and her staff are so nice. I feel like I am visiting my girl friends when I go in to see them.
Go see her you won't regret it.
