Flo Goshgarian

As President and Owner of MD TLC, I take great pride in representing my company with world-class physicians. Before I started my business, I described myself as a “professional patient” due to suffering from many serious medical issues. Today, I am a professional entrepreneur and the proud owner of MD TLC. I carved out this business based on the intellect of Dr. Quibell, and my infinite passion for the concept, “if you look good, you feel good!” I only purchase the best equipment from the leading manufacturers in the laser industry and aesthetic technologies. I also enjoy educating and inspiring other physicians internationally to expand their practice by offering aesthetic services. I named the company MD TLC because Dr. Dianne Quibell has always given “tender loving care” to all of her patients both medically and aesthetically. We created this business based on a practice dedicated to providing state-of-the-art medical aesthetic procedures in a professional and comfortable environment. Dr. Quibell has been my personal physician for over 20 years. She has held my hand through serious conditions such as a hangman’s fracture and cancer, and even attended to every line on my face! I am proud of our expert clinical staff that provides quality service as well as establishing interactive relationships with patients.
