  1. This is very sad. Dr. Graham was a wonderful doctor. My daughter as in a car crash in Boca Raton back in 1987 and Dr. Graham “saved” her face, hardly anything can be seen anymore, and she had glass cuts all over her face. Even back then there was only one bad scarring part slightly under her jaw.
    I will always be grateful to Dr. Graham and am very sorry his life turned out badly. I hope his wife and kids stood and stand by him.
