Dr. Nachbar and the entire staff was very helpful and informative. They listened to my concerns and I even came back again with more questions and they were wonderful making sure all my concerns were answered.


I thought he was fantastic. First impression I was blown away to say the least. Office is beautiful, clean and polished. He was very knowledgable and answered every question and concern of mine. I know he is going to be the perfect surgeon. Truly cannot wait to have my procedure and see my results!


Dr. Nachbar and his staff are the rock stars of plastic surgery! I have already scheduled a tummy tuck and also want Dr, Nachbar to give me a face lift. [patient name]

The Works

I knew before the initial consultation Dr. Nachbar was an excellent surgeon, and he did not disappoint. The work above and below the neck is fantastic and I could not be more pleased. Dr. makes himself available for questions should you need him, and the staff is friendly and responsive as well. Dr. Nachbar gives the impression he could perform surgery in his sleep, perfectly. Great surgeon.

Breast Lift

Dr. Nachbar is extremely knowledgeable and honest. I trust him 100% as this was my 2nd procedure in 17 years and I wouldn't go to anyone else. I pray he never retires. He's perfect. Everything was perfect. I felt comfortable every step of the way.

Tummy Tuck

Very friendly and concerat of my feelings of what I wanted. Seem to understand my wants and needs.


Dr. Nachbar was very thorough with completing procedure; he and his staff were extremely patient and kind. I will go back if I decide to have other procedures. The best thing is that I will no longer be extremely self-conscious with the way I look.

Mole Removal Skin Cancer Removal

Great doctor. Very honest and thorough. Went above and beyond my expectations. Very knowledgeable.

Face Lift

Please refer to my other comments. I am beyond angry and so humiliated.


Dr. Nachbar was very thorough and informative with me during my consult with a very high level of compassion and kindness. His ability to explain the procedure in patient layman's terms" ,so to speak, made me feel at ease during my consult. His office staff also made me feel welcome and their friendliness with expert professionalism was outstanding.On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest score, I rate Dr. Nachbar and his staff 100!I will definitely recommend Dr, Nachbar to all of my friends who are interested in cosmetic surgery and he is my only "go to doctor" for all of my future procedures.Dr. Nachbar told me that he loves what he does and it truly shows for he is a true expert in his field of plastic surgery!"

Breast Lift

Used this doctor for another procedure in the past.

Face Lift

the results of my surgery are so amazing that I can never fully express my gratitude to Dr Nachbar, there are no words; He is an absolute visionary, professional and artistic, Surgeon. I am so impressed with all the procedures he has performed for me, but my neck looks amazing and the marionette lines that used to bother me so much are gone.Thank you Dr. Nachbar you went above and beyond my expectations, I'm forever grateful. ps; my husband too!!! And to your staff too especially Sharon whom I love and trust, thanks!

Mommy Makeover

I felt really comfortable and it didn't seem like they were out to just get my money. Some plastic surgeons will make you feel uncomfortable when you take your clothes off but he pointed out what he felt would work best with me and my body type. I cannot wait until my procedure

Mommy Makeover

I did.extensive research inn advance and selected the surgeon based on my own criteria. Dr. Nachbar impressed me with the large amount of info he provides in his website. I felt very comfortable with him and his staff, and his credentials. Am totally confident he will do a beautiful job.

Breast Lift

Everyone at the office was super friendly and made me feel very comfortable. They were fun and at the same time very professional. This was my second breast augmentation but first lift/reduction. I wanted by breasts smaller due to back aches and me being a runner, it was a bit uncomfortable. I also had a hard time finding clothes that fit right. I'm happy with the size I decided on, not too much smaller but just enough to fix the problems I had with them. I now feel they are proportionate to my body.


I feel very comfortable with Dr. Nachbar and his staff. They are exceptionally kind and always willing to answer my questions. I have never had such a positive experience in any other doctor's office. I do not yet know the final results of my surgery and so far it has been a good experience.

Tummy Tuck

Was very happy with my surgical team... everyone was so nice and helpful. . Everyone was always there to help and answer your questions. Doctor even gave private number to call with any questions no matter how small.

Tummy Tuck

My recovery was unbelievably easy. I went back to my normal schedule working taking care of kids etc after 5 days post op. Day 6 was back to normal routine with just taking it easy feet up at end of day and always wearing CG. Loved NOT having drains ever! The pain level was much less than I had feared and worried for years about. I wish I had done it earlier - but was glad I waited until my twins (my youngest kid) were done needing to be picked up and were more self sufficient (age 7). Probably wouldn't recommend doing it until youngest kids were at least in full time kindergarten. I did it 3 months into the twins in 2nd grade. So happy I made the decision to do it. Still can't believe i was grave enough to go thru with it!
