  • ""I like how Dr. Cutler is very calm and gentle with the Botox and Dermal filler procedure. I didn't feel any pain. The place is very beautiful and the receptionist is friendly.""
    Luciana S.
  • "My procedure was a permanent makeup (eyeliner) with Julia. We conversed about my preference and the end result I wanted to achieve. She Accomplished the look I was hoping for!!
    I was delighted with the outcome immediately! Her technique & skills were precise & gentle.
    I've had this procedure done in the past (other spas) & had severe puffiness & swelling and not quite the outcome I wanted. Not so with Julia.
    Slight swelling only. I definitely would recommend Julia to others."
    Teri P.
  • "Love my lashes!!! Julia is the most AMAZING lash artist out in the San Diego area. After struggling to find a lash artist who could provide volume and consistency, I found Julia. My lashes always last 3 weeks or longer and never look to sparse between sets! Quality lashes and quick fills! By far, most highly recommended lash tech"
    Gabrielle O.
  • "Upon entering, I was enchanted with the pristine, non clinical, yet professional look of SDIM. Beautiful, clean, tranquil turquoise and white. Julia was calm, professional and answered my 100 questions. I was afraid of a needle near my eyes for the permanent eyeliner and her demeanor relaxed all of my fears. This is the day after and so far, so good!
    I would recommend Julia for her precision and ability to calm the terrified!"
    Cat V.
  • "I have to say he is one of the best doctors out there. He actually listens to what I have to say. He also does his best to fix all the problems I come to him for. I feel like he knows what he is talking about as apposed to some other doctors I have had who don't know what I'm talking about. He also takes his time and is very thorough. Most doctors I have had don't spend a lot of time in the room. He does. He actually wants to fix the problem and not get through his patients as fast as he can. I'm definitely going back and I'm going to recommend him to all of my friends."
    Kimberly L.
  • "I have had my eyelashes done multiple times by Julia and she is great! She is very fast and every time it turns out great! I have gotten my lashes done many time in the past and this is hands down my favorite place! The spa is super clean and professional and offer many other services! I would highly recommend it!"
    Kaylyn G.
  • "SDIM is a special business. Dr. Cutler has made an inviting space here for San Diegans to feel at home. My experience included Dr. Cutler staying after hours for me and went above and beyond the call of duty in the name of good business while supporting excellent customer satisfaction. For those lucky enough to live in Poway or in the general San Diego area, I highly recommend giving this business a chance to earn your business and I believe you'll be their next five-star review. Their prices seem to be most competitive in town too, I came all the way from downtown after vetting many other practices in San Diego and am glad I took the time to research and make the drive to Poway to visit San Diego Integrative Medicine."
