Dr. Niamtu is licensed to practice cosmetic facial surgery in the State of Virginia only. Any discussion of health care or surgical conditions is considered an informal discussion and does not create a surgeon-patient relationship. A diagnosis and treatment plan can only be established after a formal patient consult is conducted.
