  • Anton is a horrible horrible man trying to create fake news. Just evil, low quality, low morality person.

    He came to our skincare clinic saw our D and then wrote a horrible google review full of lies- he said our Facebook page was full of fake reviews, that our Dr’s are fake and do not have licenses, that our Dr’s do not speak English and that the clinic is operated solely as a scam to collect a $16 medical examination fee.

    When I looked on his google profile (it is publicly available) he had many other almost identical reviews of skincare clinics.

    I called him and offered a full refund of his $16, but I think he felt guilty and would not come back to the clinic. I asked him about the details in his review- for example, how could he conclude that our Facebook reviews are bad when he, or anyone, could easily check any of our facebook reviews and then see if the reviewer was a real person, and then even message them to confirm they are real reviews… but he woudl not answer. Finally he told me he had set up a new media company ATM Media and that he wanted to do a viral story on scam skincare clinics. so he was creating his own story…
