“Dr. Giovanni Botti is a phenomenal teacher who takes time and interest to explain every minute details of the surgery he performs. He executes his thought process in a very organised manner. He is very humble, approachable and extremely down to earth. The interaction with him during my fellowship period gave me clarity of concepts in facial aesthetic and breast surgery. Dr. Chiara Botti is an amazing surgeon and is very meticulous in her approach. She is very friendly and cheerful.”
