The results are better than anticipated. The surgery created a better version of me not a stranger. Many compliments. It was the care and attention of Dr. Symbas himself and his staff of professionals that made it a great experience.
Great results, great office personnel. Dr. Symbas goes above and beyond to give you a look you’ll love that makes you happy. Very thorough up front in understanding your needs so therefore better end result. Never felt rushed or that he wasn’t paying attention which IMO is part of why he gives you exactly, or more than, what you wish for. I truly felt he would have spent the entire day on me if that’s what he thought was needed. Very fairly priced as well.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are so kind and caring.
Dr. Symbas is the most compassionate and caring physician I have ever dealt with. My face looks ten years younger. It was pretty painless.
An abundance of pre-op and post-op printed materials covered everything I could possibly need. The surgery was right on schedule, and all staff at the facility were very kind and helpful. I am already much better and didn't need some of the medications. It was all together a much easier experience than I anticipated. Dr. Symbas is wonderful. Can hardly wait to see the results although he was very honest about the time it will take to see final results. Wish I had done it sooner.
Excellent experience in total care. [Single best thing is...] Physician's personal touch.
Everyone was very friendly- I wasn't sure if it was genuine my first visit. But, Dr. Ghazi's demeanor the morning of my surgery was wonderful, he was very kind and took time with me as if he wasn't in a hurry. His assistant is also very nice and I really appreciate that. I have never waited very long any visit I had- I appreciate that too.
Overall easy, wonderful experience. Life changing!
For the most part I felt like my surgeon listened to my concerns and was very informative and comforting due to my illness. Felt like family
From my initial contact with Dr. Symbas and staff I was/am so impressed with their freindly, professional attitude. I love my results and it is all due to their abilities and wonderful care. I have recommended them several times and plan to return myself for future procedures.
Dr Ghazi is awesome! He always asks how I am doing, never makes me feel rushed and is a perfectionist so my Botox always looks amazing! The office is conveniently located and very clean. So glad I found you guys. [Single best thing is...] Enchanced beauty look. Just a small tweak made everything look better.
Dr. Ghazi and Maddie were very nice and professional. They answered all of my questions about Botox and made my first experience very easy and painless. I am very happy with my results and I will definitely be back! [Single best thing is...] No forehead wrinkles!
Dr Ghazzi and staff were very thorough in reviewing my needs and working with me to achieve desired results. I had researched plastic surgeons online for months, and then visited 5 other doctors before my visit with Dr. Ghazzi. After that visit, I knew he was the doctor I wanted to perform the surgery. Totally satisfied and highly recommend to others. [Single best thing is...] No longer worry about problems from breast implants that were 30 years old. Results are great, and very natural looking.
Very pleased with the breast lift that I received. They look great! :). Dr. Ghazi was fantastic. Wonderful bedside manner and ability to make me feel at ease from the very beginning. I love that he personally called to follow up the night after my surgery and was available any time I needed him. The rest of the staff was very pleasant as well.
I am grateful to have been able to have my breast implants removed and to have been in Dr Ghazi hands!! I am experiencing a higher quality of life now. Thank you so much-! Dr Ghazi is amazing at what he does. The result of my breasts says it all... he is a highly skilled surgeon with a wonderful professional bed side manner. I will recommend anyone seeking to remove their breast implants to Dr Ghazi. He is adding a tremendous amount of value to our community of woman! I look forward to continuing to be his patient. I would like to have my double chin worked on as well as my husband. Dr. Ghazi is a blessing and his team are caring and sweet to my son.
Dr. Ghazi and staff, were incredibly confident yet still approachable and humble. I felt safe, best way I can describe. I no longer feel self conscious of the ridiculous implants I had. My immune system thanks me, it no longer has to struggle because of foreign objects in my body.
I love Jodi and Dr. Ghazi SOOOOOO much. The entire office is awesome and makes spending my money much easier.
I work in surgery. I have never met a surgeon in ANY specialty who is as accessible and concerned as Dr Ghazi. He is an amazing surgeon and person. I am extremely please with the outcome of my surgery I feel extremely relieved that my implants are gone. I also feel confident they were removed the right way so nothing was left that could make me sick.
It has helped me regain my health and get my life back. . Dr. Ghazi and staff were amazing from the FaceTime consult until my last post-op visit. He went above and beyond to always answer any questions or concerns I had. He was quick to reply back to any questions or concerns I had. I recommend him all the time to people and will continue to do so.
Dr. Ghazi is a phenomenal Surgeon. It is very caring and understanding and listened to my needs. The entire staff was very friendly and surgery team was on point with medication and pain management after surgery. They truly have explant & lift down to a science. I highly recommend Dr. Ghazi I’m very pleased with my results. Dr. Ghazi is an artist and very skilled Surgeon. I feel so much better health wise since I explanted.
Very smooth forehead from Botox. Allowed me to try additional Botox for free in my crow's feet area. Did not take long, good results, etc.
My experience with Dr. John Symbas and Dr. Moore was one of the greatest, Dr. Simbas called me that afternoon before my surgery to ask how was I feeling what was I thinking. When I explained to him you make me feel so comfortable with his reply that everything is normal what I’m feeling. For one thing I don’t have excess bleeding anymore, thanks to Dr. Mora she is a wonderful person and a super doctor she sit down and talk to you like never before. If I ever think about having surgery OB/GYN it’s got to be her, Thanks to your team everyone was super nice throughout my visit until the day of surgery
The dr and staff was absolutely amazing! I’v never had any type of procedure before. They were informative and caring. Would definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great experience and results. I had a pretty good amount of breast tissue removed from under my right armpit. I was very self conscious about it. Since having it removed I feel great.
Dr Bair Ghazi is a very skilled, compassionate doctor. His bedside manner is the best in the business. I went to him for breast implant removal in November 2016. I was very pleased with his genuine care and concern for me and the fact that he only wanted me to do the procedure I wanted. Other surgeons had tried to pressure me to replace the implants or get a lift. I didn't want that. He though I would be fine without a lift, and I was. I was so happy with my experience with Dr Ghazi and his staff, I went back in May of 2018 for dermal lipectomy (like a tummy tuck without muscle repair) liposuction and fat transfer to the breasts. I'm extremely happy with my results! Even back in a bikini this summer, something I haven't worn in 13 years. I highly recommend Dr Ghazi.
Every part of my procedure (before, during, and after) was a fantastic experience. In addition to being a truly incredible talent, Dr. Ghazi bent over backwards to make sure I was comfortable and satisfied, and his support team of nurses, PA's, and coordinators were always available to assist. I couldn't be happier with my results, and I'll tell anyone that listens to look no further than Dr. Ghazi and his team for the best experience. My confidence level is so much higher, and everyone thinks I look fantastic and can't tell at all that I had any work done.
Surgery went well no problem . My daughter had surgery as well and Dr Symbas coordinated our post op visits so we didn’t have to go to Atlanta more than needed
Dr Ghazi is just the best! His skills are excellent and his bedside manners even better.
Just that I was so well informed - I didnt have many questions to ask. They were so professional I really felt at ease. I had complete confidence in the staff, especially in Dr Symbas.
Dr Ghazi and his staff were awesome from beginning to end. They made me feel very comfortable. My family has used this office several times and would again in the future if needed. I am thrilled with my results. I feel so much more comfortable
Everyone was awesome!They listen, bed side manners were phenomenal and the doctor was far beyond my expectations. I will surely recommend to others and come only to this facility for any additional needs. Great experience and looking forward to sharing the good news of this facility!
Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. Dr Ghazi is very skilled I was having autoimmune issues from breast implants. I also did not like the way they looked. Dr Ghazi removed the implants with proper en bloc procedure. The results of the lift are perfect
Dr. Symbas from consultation to post-opp was delightful, informative, sincere and compassionate. He answered all questions but also made me feel at total ease throughout the process. I could have not asked for more. I love my smaller breasts. I wish I had done it ten years ago!
Dr. Symbas and his staff were quite helpful and available to me both before and after the surgery. I felt that they were genuinely interested in my concerns and willing to answer any question pre- or post-op. Dr. Symbas was always interested in my comfort, concerns, and always quite supportive during the process. Very minimal pain and quick recovery.
My first time having Botox in your office and had light chemical peel under my eyes. My results so far look great. My skin looks great
Yes, I was satisfied with the results from my experience.
All the staff were exceptionally helpful and available.
THE EXPERIENCE BEFORE AND AFTER SURGERY MET AND EXCEEDED MY EXPECTIONS! VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COMFORTING IN EVERY WAY!
Great results I don’t have to try to hide my man boob with my clothing and posture. I feel much more comfortable with myself.
This was my first major surgery, DCIS and breast reduction, and I came through it with flying colors. I appreciate Dr. Ghazi and his staff and the DCIS team for all they did for me and all the information i received. Thank you all,[name]
Dr. Ghazi & his PA are very personable, understanding & compassionate. They show the ability to empathize with the patient's feelings and accommodate individual situations.
I have two different breast, anyone looking at me can tell . Also he did not consider my size when making my breast smaller . I will say I ignored the warning signs . I fell botched, looking for another doctor currently to make it right.
Dr. Ghazi Is the most caring and kind doctor I have ever met. His bedside manner is wonderful.
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are amazing. They’re always available for questions and concerns - but I didn’t really have any. They anticipated my needs and took very good care of me. The tension headaches have all but stopped and my clothes fit so much more nicely.
On one where I answered satisfied it was really due to my own expectation. I do feel strongly that after a double mastectomy you need to be in the hospital more than 24 hours. On my 1 week follow up it was determined the tissue was dying due to previous radiation and I needed a latisimus back flap which was scheduled for the next day. I truly appreciated that attention and the speed of admission. My reconstruction was scheduled late in the day and I was released from the hospital as I came to from the anesthesia...I felt I should have been observed longer. Dr. Ghazi and his staff are undeniably the best in every way shape and form. I would definitely return should I ever have the need. Excellent care!
The first nurse I had contact with was not very personable, and she did not notice a bloody gauze on the floor next to the unemptied garbage can. It was 6:00 in the morning. The second nurse took care of it in a very acceptable fashion. Quick and decisive. I was very concerned about the sanitation of the facility.
Dr. Ghazi was fantastic...very professional, very knowledgeable and wonderful demeanor...Dr. Ghazi made the overall experience very nice.
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are truly incredible. They are personable, understanding and always willing to help with the smallest question. From those who helped get my procedure approved through insurance to the receptionists who helped me chose the appropriate scar creme at my follow up procedure, I was always treated with the utmost respect and care. Dr. Ghazi made me feel confident going into the procedure with a detailed explanation of what would occur and how I would feel. The staff at Northside Hospital made me feel extremely comfortable before and after my procedure and answered any last minute questions that I had. The post-op experience was equally as great as the staff ensured was healing correctly with the least amount of pain possible. I would recommend Dr. Ghazi to anyone considering a procedure! The process was truly life changing and I feel like a new woman.
My breasts look great! I love them. Surgeon has wonderful bedside manners. And is extremely warm and helpful. Majority of the nurse staff is also very nice
Everyone was very nice Dr Symbas is the greatest doctor
From the very start Dr. Symbas and the Oncological surgeon ( Dr. Page ) with whom he coordinated both took the time to personally discuss the procedures and possible approaches and outcomes. This joint meeting left me with a high degree of confidence in both doctors. Both did separate follow up visits to the hospital the morning after the surgery. Since I was an out of state patient, both Drs. made it easy for me to contact them personally if there might be any complications. All went according to plan. Great outcome.
Dr. Ghazi and his staff were great in every way. They were all very friendly, timely, and made sure that everything ran smoothly.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were incredible.I had multiple surgeries and am very pleased with the outcome of all.
I was seen in a timely manner and felt that Dr. Ghazi took his time with me and didn't rush through our visit. I am obsessed with how my lips look. They are natural but definitely fuller! He does great work!
Dr. Symbas is a doctor who cares and can be trusted. After several surgeries for breast cancer, I am most happy with my choice of Dr. Symbas as my plastic surgeon. I’m thankful he was with us to help us through this process. The after care I have received has been outstanding. I know I can call at any time with a question, and Dr. Symbas will be happy to help. Additionally, the nurses from Piedmont Surgery Center were thorough and very compassionate.
Everything regarding my procedure was a great experience. I had reconstructive surgery on my nose from basil cell cancer. It was a very large area, plus scaring from previous surgeries and Dr. Symbas was wonderful! He did a great job and I am very grateful to him for his creative ability to minimize the scaring. I would definitely recommend him to my friends!
Dr Symbas and staff were present, attentive and caring. He explained exactly what he was going to do and patiently fielded my questions and concerns. He did an extraordinary job considering the problem he had to solve and the limited amount of skin he had to work with. He is a consummate professional!
Dr. Symbas and his staff have been truly professional and comforting to me as I go through this life circumstance and situation.
*Location. Very overwhelming to get in and out of the area.* The patient coordinator may need some help with the volume of patients you deal with. She always seemed rushed and I felt cut off in conversation at times. I understand she deals with these situations all the time, but it is scary when your coming into a group of professionals that you really don't have a relationship with. You get that cattle call feeling. Nothing but a number, and not a person.
After many years of delaying a much desired tummy tuck, I finally moved forward. My first meeting with Dr Ghazi made me feel confident about my choice of procedures. From the first to my last post-op visit I was met with professional and caring staff members. Dr Ghazi had a bedside manner that exceeded his professional obligations and made every visit feel relaxed and comfortable. Along with my procedures came many questions that were promptly answered and never hurried. I would highly recommend Dr Ghazi and his staff for helping others meet their life long desires of enhancing their bodies. The body requires adequate time to heal and Dr Ghazi keeps you encouraged along the process. I am satisfied beyond my expectations and cannot think of one reason why I wouldn’t do it all over again. Thanks Dr Ghazi, I feel like a new woman!
Dr. Ghazi’s skills as a surgeon are exceptional. But the caring and professionalism demonstrated by him and his entire staff were above and beyond. The trauma of a breast cancer diagnosis was overwhelming. From the beginning Dr Ghazi made me feel that everything was going to be fine. My reconstruction has made me feel positive about my future.
I thought Dr. Symbas and the entire staff went above and beyond to make me feel at ease and comfortable with my surgical procedure. I was impressed with their professionalism and my overall experience with everyone. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends. I am amazed and very pleased with the results. My recovery went very well. I was back to my usual physical activities after 8 weeks. I would have to say that I am amazed how minimal the scarring is.
I spoke to Dr. Ghazi on Sunday morning and he arranged to meet me before office hours to relieve swelling and breast pain. At the office visit my infection was obvious. Dr. Ghazi sent me immediately to the emergency room, called ahead with instructions to the er staff, conducted same day surgery, and personally checked on me the next morning. Subsequent to my follow up visit dr Ghazi called me to discuss recovery and proper timing for final surgery. Dr.Ghazi represents what a skilled and caring Doctor should be.
Dr. John Symbas explained to me on the operating table exactly what he could do for me. It was not like open heart surgery but a very delicate procedure and he was the most qualified to do the job. He told me not to worry and that he would do a perfect job. Not only was he confident, he backed up his words. John was the most sincere person I have ever encountered. He did an outstanding job and many people that have seen his work will attest to that. I am sending pictures of the healing to his e-mail address. Make me your poster child. Thanks again Dr. John your really out did yourself. See you upon my return from Florida. [name]
Extremely proffessional and excellent care by John and his entire staff. Made a horrifying breast cancer surgery bearable and very pleased with my results. Made me feel whole again after a bi lateral mastecomy.
DR.GHAZI AND HIS STAFF WERE THE BEST & MOST KNOWLEDGED PEOPLE I FOUND TO PERFORM THE SURGERY I NEEDED! VERY UNDERSTANDING TO HELP ME WITH MY NEEDS. I WILL RECOMMEND TO ANYONE NEEDING THIS TYPE SERVICE. I WILL ALSO RECOMMEND EMORY HOSPITAL. I HAVE MY LIFE BACK AND I'M ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD IN EVERYDAY LIVING. AFTER THIS SURGERY WITH DR GHAZI &DR.RIZZO I NOW CAN ENJOY LIFE!GIVES ME A REASON TO HAVE SUNSHINE AND SMILES ONCE AGAIN IN MY EVERYDAY LIFE.
Very nice and informed physician and PA. Short wait times. Procedure done well. I'm not done withthem yet. They did a good repair after a unilateral mastectomy. Looks bettr than I thought. Will still need more reconstruction after chemo.
Dr. Symbas showed great concern and compassion during and after procedure of removing cancer and subsequent plastic surgery. The doctor always made my wife and myself comfortable and appreciated.
I got the results I was looking for. Thanks Fr. Ghazi!!! Everyone was so friendly and professional. They were able to answer all the questions I had.
My experience with Dr Ghazi was Awesome. Not only is he a highly skilled surgeon but his kindness is above all. My surgery was breast reconstruction due to breast cancer and I am very thankful to have chosen him. Staff and nurses and been A+!
Dr. Ghazi is knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and takes his time to answer all of your questions. He has the best bedside manner I've ever encountered, and I had a great experience with the entire staff. He is also a very proficient surgeon and I'm very happy with my results.
The professionalism of the surgeon and nurses and staff. Very confident in my surgeon. Greatbedidemanner. It has made me fell whole again andgiven me more confidence I myself.
Dr. Ghazi and the Atlanta Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery team has been extremely patient and tentative to all of my requests and needs during this process. I know that I was uneducated and very nervous of the surgery process but they answered all of my questions with answers that were plain and clear. They made me feel comfortable and assured. Dr. Ghazi never turned me away and was always available to answer ANY question or concern.
1) Professional surgery, 2) care, 3)lack of noticeable scarring and follow up. The personal and professional care and followups
Dr. Symbas and team are a very caring and professional group. They promote an atmosphere for your comfort. They listen attentively to your concerns and desires and give you the options available for results you are looking for. Kept my wishes in mind throughout every procedure.
Dr. Ghazi and his staff have been superb from my first visit to discuss my mastectomy and all the way through the process. I could not have imagined a more kind, thoughtful, patient and experienced group. They gave me so much confidence that everything would be fine and it is! I highly recommend Dr. Ghazi and his staff!
Dr. Symbas and his entire staff were amazing! They were all helpful and caring, and I would absolutely return as well as recommend them to friends and family. Words cannot express how much my life has changed for the better after having a breast reduction. I would do it again tomorrow.
Dr ghazi was very reassuring the day of surgery. He gave me his cell #. I felt great, and felt good about everything I feel 20 years younger, I can do things and wear clothes I couldn’t wear in my 20’s. I feel very confident and am very thankful to dr ghazi
Because Dr Ghazi is so professional, patient, kind and very reassuring in his manner and explanation of procedures. Staff is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in answering questions with a caring and interested attitude. A super group altogether.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are amazing. They are professional, compassionate, and consistently go above and beyond to make you comfortable. I am a breast reconstruction patient and was forced to switch doctors during this process. I am so happy that I met Dr. Symbas. He and his staff have made a difficult transition extremely easy. I can't say enough about how great they are.
Dr. Ghazi and his entire staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and give you as much detailed information as possible. I found visiting the office for all the follow ups to be a very positive experience and always left the office feeling better than when I arrived. In my opinion all patients are treated equally and with great tlc. Their attention to detail made my journey with breast cancer as positive as it could be. The personalization shown to me as an individual. The staff makes you feel as if you are their only patient.
It got rid of the wrinkles on my forehead. Don't like the ways my eyes look but do like forehead.
I WAS IN THE BEST OF HANDS! EVERYONE AT EMORY WAS JUST WONDERFUL ! THE DOCTORS ;NURSES;CLEANING STAFF ALL WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE IT A SAFE AND COMFORTABLE PLACE TO BE THERE. FROM THE MOMENT OF THE BEGINNING OF THE SURGERY TILL THE END,THE MOST IMPORTANT PART WAS TO GIVE ME THE BEST CARE POSSIBLE. ALL AT EMORY DID EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO MAKE SURE THE OUTCOME OF SURGERY WAS THE BEST THEY COULD DO;AND THEY DID.DOCTOR RIZZO &DR. GHAZI WAS SO KIND DURING ALL THE PROCEDURES AND VISITS. ANY KIND OF SURGERIES IN THE FUTURE I WANT EMORY TO TAKE CARE OF ME !
Dr. Ghazi and his entire staff, from the receptionist to the nurses to he, himself, were very thorough, very concerned and caring. They took all the time I needed to explain everything, tell me what to expect and answer any questions I had. This was a very tramatic experience for me after beating cancer. They made me feel comfortable and normal again! God bless Dr. Ghazi and his entire staff!!!!
Having issues with a previous surgery done as an infant. After having 5 children the scar was worse extra skin, scar tissue and fat...causing external infection from skin to skin contact. Only option was to have the scar completely overhauled. Dr. G and his team were actually familiar with NEC on infants so they knew exactly what my scar entailed and how to fix it!! No more skin to skin with a flatter torso .. Very pleased!!
The entire staff at this office is highly professional, truly make the patient feel that their needs come first, are heard and within the power of the staff met. I have had 3 surgeries in 7 weeks and wouldn't have want to go through this with any other Doctor, PA, nurses or office staff. They provided one of the bright spots in the midst of unforeseen complications that were not of their making. Feeling blessed that I sought a second opinion for plastic surgeon to reconstruct following bilateral mastectomy.
Dr. Ghazi and the staff was great. I was really felling very low. After 18 years of remission my breast cancer returned. After my surgery and cancer treatment the first time, I knew this time it be worst. To my surprise and the information given to Dr. Ghazi and staff, this time surgery was better. I would and have recommended my family and friends to him. I fell hole again. Thank you Dr. Ghazi and your staff. I fell like a normal woman now.
Could not be more satisfied with this practice--everyone is experienced, caring, informative, professional. the attention they gave to a 67 year old woman post mastectomy reconstruction -- every question answered, every concern addressed.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful. They treated me like apart of their family. I would recommend them to family and friends.
Dr. Ghazi office was prompted and efficient. All staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Ghazi's personality is very engaging and friendly. He listens and take time to answer questions. I never felt rushed. I no longer have pain or discomfort due to my abdominal hernia. I feel that my stomach is stronger and overall feel fitter. With the addition of the tummy tuck, it removed sagging skin from pregnancy and I feel much more comfortable wearing certain clothing.
I am 75% satisfy....I probably will have another procedure, because the fat transfer went down and my breast doesn't look natural. Once this procedure is done I can give a fair feedback of my reconstruction and satisfaction.
- THOROUGH AND COMPLETE INFORMATION IN LAYMAN'S TERMS: Information and options - both surgical and non-surgical provided; no question left unanswered; extraordinary patience exhibited by Dr. Symbas, his surgical team, and his office staff- EXPERIENCE: Extremely positive - both in-office and in the surgery center- SURGICAL OUTCOME: Better than envisioned- FUTURE: No fear or hesitation in approaching Dr. Symbas for additional required or necessary procedures
I've been to Dr. Ghazi for Botox several times and for other procedures as well. I love him and his team - they are highly professional, friendly, and caring.
Yes. Dr. Ghazi and his team are incredible. I look younger but natural!
Dr. Ghazi and his team have helped me feel comfortable with my implant procedure and following fat transfer procedure. They listened to all of my concerns and questions, and provided all the time I needed to discuss these with them. I always felt that I was in good hands!
I was shocked at how easy it all was. Should have done this years ago.
Superb customer experience partly due to the care and attention the receptionist, nurses, PA’s and Dr. Symbass showed me both before and after my procedure. They treated me like they actually cared about me, like I was family.
Dr. Symbas goes through everything the procedure entails, both before and after. He has never tried to sell me on a procedure, unlike consultations I had with other surgeons. The single best thing about this experience is my results. I literally could not be any happier! This is my 3rd procedure with Dr. Symbas, and both he and his staff are fantastic, and my results are even better!! I recommend his practice to everyone and anyone I know who is considering having cosmetic surgery.
Dr Symbus was very courteous & professional! He was very compassionate & caring taking time to discuss the surgery in detail. I never felt rushed in his office. Staff were very courageous & helpful.. Thank you for a wonderful experience & helping me feel beautiful again! Thank you from the bottom of my heart !!
Dr Ghazi is very compassionate and also very honest with what to expect and what is possible for him to do. Having a double mastectomy is shocking, but he made me feel good that he will help me feel back to normal soon and with little pain. I have my final reconstruction surgery soon, and can hardly wait! Even now, with only expanders, I don't feel bad...I still feel feminine, which I didn't think I would.
Information given by the Surgeon and his assistant did not always match up with the information provided by the nurse. I am still confused about when it is okay to begin excersizing and if the large amount of swelling at the end of the day is TRULY normal or something to be concerned with. I believe I was also told an inaccurate time for healing post surgery and when I brought it up to the nurse she said it took her a week longer than the estimated time and that she was still healing from a procedure she had just a few months before. It is imperative to be completely honest and realistic with the patients regarding recovery time. Especially when they have jobs that support their lively hood and if they are not going to be able to return to work when estimated then it's a huge problem. Also, when a patient returns in because of the swelling, to tell them to just keep wearing compression when the patient was told in the prior appointment that it was no longer necessary is I feel putting a bandaid over the problem. My outcome was not at all what I expected and nor is my recovery.
Very personable, compassionate. Listened to my concerns, answered my questions.
Dr Ghazi and the staff were very knowledgeable and caring.
Dr. Ghazi is AMAZING. SO very compassionate. I feel like God led me to him. If I had any issues, they were addressed immediately.
Dr.Ghazi is very caring and professional, he listens to me and always does a great job. He a very sweet and caring person always a smile he's just a great doctor, the staff is also professional and friendly and they listen and try to make every visit comfortable. I've had 4 major surgeries and 2 in office procedures and all of them help me physically look better and make me feel better about my body and gave me more self-confidence.
Dr Gahzi and his staff were so patient and accommodating. They were very helpful during this stressful time for me. They constantly supported me and helped keep my mental state in a positive light.
Slightly rushed during conversation with surgeon just prior to surgery
The friendly and reassuring attitude of Dr Ghazi. He is simply the best. This is my first experience with having surgery. I thought I would be beyond nervous but from the receptionist all the way up to the Dr made me feel so comfortable with everything. I don't just say Highly satisfied unless I was but I would recommend this group to anyone- their experience will be nothing but excellent
Dr. Symbas listened, I wasn't rushed, could ask questions, and the procedure went well and there has been minimal scarring on my back Dr. Symbas didnt rush the check up & was willing to talk & listen
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are amazing! I was comfortable during the whole experience and trusted everyone I came in contact with. It was a positive environment where I felt everyone cared about my needs and expectations. I can finally wear what I want again and the procedure is a definite confidence booster!
Friendliness of doctor and office. All very professional yet very caring.
I have never met a more caring and outgoing medical group. Dr. Symbas is a jewel. The care and concern was wonderful
All very, very nice, and the result is wonderful. Had to do a lot of grafting after a melanoma was removed.
Strictly because of the interactions with Dr Ghazi. He was like no other Doctor that I've ever experienced, very personable and informative.
Loved everyone I interacted with before, during and after surgery. Sarah has been great about answering all my questions and working through all the details. I would have never thought having surgery out of state could be so easy. Dr. Symbas was so great to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to refer friends or family to him.
Doctor has a nice bedside manner. Made me feel confident he could get me a nice result. I have more self confidence I amMore comfortable in my clothing buy most importantly I am healthy.
Dr. Ghazi Bahair is an excellent surgeon; however he is an exceptional medical physician which is rare. I was extremely impressed with his humility, his listening skills and ability to empathy with as well as address my concerns as a patient. Going through a bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction is very difficult or shall I say life changing; therefore, having a physician / plastic surgeon like Dr. Ghazi who cared enough to comfort me during this time truly made what I was facing possible. I know that he has hundreds of patients but he always made me feel like I was his only patient meaning his focus was on my well-being when in his presence. Hands down, I would highly recommend Dr. Ghazi to any woman who as a result of a mastectomy required reconstruction surgery - he is the best! His staff is also very competent and caring which also enhanced my medical / surgical experience. The pre-op advisement, prep care received from the nurses and staff at the hospital directly before the actual surgery / surgical prep. along with the visit from Dr. Ghazi Bahair prior to surgery reassuring me that everything was going to be okay, and the excellent post-op care received from Dr. Bahair and Emily LeCraw, Physician Assistant after the surgery. The final result of the surgery which is having two breast that fit my body structure without complications is the best thing regarding this surgical procedure.
Dr. Ghazi is great to work with. I will be using him when I do my next surgery.
Kindness. Skill. Personal attention. Responsive to concerns. Felt like I mattered. Grateful. Hopefully I will live a normal lifespan and do it without further complications from cancer.
Dr. Symbas and his entire staff are so compassionate and they gave me all the time I needed to ask questions. He is so kind and caring. The repair on my very large hernia has been really good. It has healed beautifully. Thank you Dr. Symbas, [patient name]
Dr. S ymbas is extremely compassionate and exhibits an air of excellence in what he does. In addition, the entire staff at Piedmont Hospital involved in my care was excellent as well. The friendliness and compassion of the staff play an important role in my having a future surgery at Piedmont Hospital.
Dr Symbas was very approachable and very easy to talk with. He called to check up after procedure. I was shocked that he called instead of office staff or the physician assistant. He explained the procedure very well and even explained it to my spouse. I am very impressed. Down to earth people. I am satisfied. I had an unsightly large patch of abnormal skin of left side of face that needed to be remove - I was worry that it may be cancer... I am glad that Dr Symbas took me on as a patient.
Staff and Dr I have breast that look normal
Dr. Symbas listened to what my concerns were and offered solutions specifically for me. Other doctors came in with a game plan before even meeting with me. I am confident in my clothes and look how I should for my age. I no longer feel that my weight loss is obvious in my saggy boobs.
Dr. Symbas is the most personable and compassionate surgeon I've ever met. He truly cares about his patients. He communicates well and in a language I can understand. I just can't say enough good things about him and his staff is equally wonderful.
Dr. Ghazi and his team did an amazing job in performing my breast reconstruction and caring for my physical and mental health. As a working mother, the team was able to minimize my downtime allowing me to continue to work.
First I trust Dr Ghazi and I had never had Botox so it went well . I felt very comfortable talking to him about what I'd like to do!. I look and feel refreshed
The surgeon ' s surgical skill is great, the result is better then I expected. I expected better communication from the provider.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were very attentive and caring. Although my surgery was not your typical plastic surgery (improving one's appearance) I would definitely consider Dr. Symbas and his team. Hopefully there is no further need for cancer
Dr Ghazi, Emily, Robbin, & all of the front office make me feel so comfortable & at ease. They are the Best! I consider crossing paths with these wonderful people just another benefit of cancer!! Thank you all! I feel so much better about myself. I didn't realize how bad my mastectomy scar was until I didn't have to see it anymore! Having the other side reduced for symmetry is just an extra benefit!
My results! I finally have the body I have only been able to see in my imagination. My results were better than I could have dreamed of! . From the moment I decided to have surgery I felt supported. The staff were so helpful in answering questions and making me feel at home. When I booked my surgery, Lin was great at working with my schedule and helping me understand payments. My education prior to surgery was comprehensive but easy to understand. My surgery went great and I felt like Dr. Ghazi was so professional and skilled with his technique in order to give me the best results.
I always feel heard, respected, and included in my medical procedure. My concerns are addressed in a professional and respectful manner. The staff is informed and knowledgeable I get to wear shorts and bikinis!!! Something I was never confident enough to do before and has now become my new way of life! I'm in shorts or in my bikinis any chance I get!
The staff from receptionist to surgeon was amazingly friendly, efficient and compassionate
I can't say enough about the positive experience provided by Dr Symbas and his staff. The only individual that wasn't friendly or warm and fuzzy was filling in when a regular staff member was on her honeymoon. The nurses and Dr Symbas all made you feel like you were the most important person in the office and took as much time as needed to answer any questions. Absolutely top notch! Having the reduction has allowed me to feel comfortable and confident in my clothes! I love to exercise and do yoga and now I don't have to worry about falling out of my clothes when I am enjoying these activities. I feel well proportioned and more confident.
This is my second breast augmentation, and my experience with Dr. Ghazi and his staff has been nothing but a positive one. The knowledge and expertise of his team has far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Ghazi is extremely professional, highly skilled and provides stellar care. His team rocks, too! Everything is positioned in the right place!
Love the results . Also, Dr. Ghazi made it as pain- free as possible with a block injection.
Great surgeon, great staff, great experience.
I'm just not satisfied with the symmetry of my breast.....the left is smaller and not the same as the right.....it's only been a couple months so I am hoping my breasts will look more symmetry in a few months.
Dr Ghazi was very informative and nice. His staff was very professional and addressed my concerns in a timely manner. My recovery was short and not painful as expected.
I was treated with such kindness everyone was very professional they reassured me it was just an overall good experience
Dr. Symbas is a very compassionate doctor. He is also a very skilled surgeon and is a perfectionist when it comes to results and patient care. His staff is exceptional as well, providing a personalized level of service each time you are in the office. I've had several procedures performed by Dr. Symbas during my recovery from breast cancer and he has taken great care of me each time! I would recommend Dr. Symbas to anyone I know! It's difficult to know what you want when you are recovering from breast cancer. Really all I desired was to be whole again. Dr. Symbas did an amazing job of listening to my feelings and concerns, and was able to make excellent recommendations for my surgery. The best thing is that Dr. Symbas listens intently to the patient, and because he listens, he knows what a patient wants even when the patient may not be able to articulate the information.
I just loved that dr symbas made me feel very comfortable and told me exactly what he was going to do and listened To my concerns Dr symbas is amazing
Dr. Ghazi has been amazing throughout this entire breast reconstruction process. He is very knowledgeable and his craftsmanship is beautiful. Most importantly, he really cares about his patients. When I noticed an issue with my nipples healing, I contacted his team over the weekend. They were very responsive and Dr Ghazi called me back within minutes while he was on vacation! Even though we had to revise our original plan due to that bump in the road, I felt completely comfortable with his decisions on next steps. I trust his expertise and that he'll do whatever is best for me over the long term while not compromising my comfort and peace of mins. I would recommend him to my most beloved as I know he'd taken extremely good care of them. Thank you!!
Dr. Symbas and staff are amazing! Great bedside" manner from Dr. Symbas and a warm, friendly staff."
Dr Symbas and his staff were very professional and friendly. I was very anxious at first and Dr Symbas and his Nurse made me feel very comfortable.I am very pleased with the result of my surgery . My family was very pleased and said if ever they would need a surgeon, they wanted Dr Symbas and his staff.Thank you for an opportunity to share my experience. [patient name] I felt that I would be cared for because they really wanted to help.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were amazing. I highly recommend him and his team. Great bedside manner, listening skills, and care for his patients! How attentive the staff was from start to finish.
I was highly satisfied with my surgeon and his staff. This was a stressful time as was also diagnosed with an early stage breast cancer, which led to the surgery.He was very calming and professional in my consultation by explaining the specifics of the procedure In order to eliminate my fears.Would most definitely use this surgeon again!! This Doctor and his team were outstanding in their care for me.His personality and sense of humor totally relaxed me the day of my surgery!!!
Dr. Symbas and his staff made me feel comfortable and informed throughout my surgery. Their level of care and professionalism is top notch. I was treated like a family member instead of a patient. I especially appreciate the attention to my emotional recovery and not simply the physical recovery. Finding a doctor that truly cares is priceless in my opinion. I am so grateful for Dr. Symbas and his entire team.
Dr. Ghazi is a very skilled surgeon with an amazing bedside manner. I traveled all the way from Cincinnati, Ohio to have him perform my surgery and it was well worth it. My experience with Dr. Ghazi and his staff before, during, and after surgery was better than I ever expected. Furthermore, I am thrilled with results. I am highly satisfied as my results far exceeded my expectations
Friendly knowledgeable supportive kind and caring staff I lost 40 pounds and my back doesn't hurt anymore and my bladder problems are 90% better
very good references about Dr Symbas superior technical skills for the procedure superior human skills....very important to me I felt very comfortable and safe with him during the whole procedure and after the comfort I developed about Dr Symbas skills, after my research about him
Dr. Ghazi was extremely friendly and very easy to talk to. He made me feel as if he cared. I was worried about having my capsules removed completely, but he assured me he would remove them en bloc. He even sent me pictures of them afterward! He did an awesome job and I healed quickly, having no problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get explant surgery. Ghazi is the man! I no longer have pain in my left breast and am much more comfortable in my own body without the implants. My overall health has improved as well as my mental state.
Everybody at this practice is highly trained, superior customer service and knowledgeable. All my procedures have been amazing and their follow up is greatly appreciated. These procedures have given me back confidence throughout this aging process. I love that my surgeon is compassionate about my needs but is conservative enough not to let me over do it.
Dr. Ghazi is awesome. Always a great experience there
Dr. Ghazi was wonderful. He listened to our concerns and made suggestions. He eased any concerns that we had and made us feel very comfortable. My daughter feels so much better about herself. She loves being able to wear the clothes and swimsuits that she always wanted to wear but never could.
All of the staff was knowledgeable and helpful, as if I was their only patient for the day, from beginning to end. Dr. Symbas was very patient, relaxed, and reassuring. He promptly returned my call to further discuss options that I thought about after the initial appointment, and seemed happy and unrushed to think and talk through each option with me, regarding size, shape, and type of implant. Jessica, the PA, was also informative and easy-going. My pre-op nurse was super helpful in explaining everything to expect and how to prepare. (The pre-op shopping sheet was a great idea!) Sarah, the pre-op coordinator was friendly and on the ball. Finally, the results are just what I was looking for: natural and perfect! The staff made the final decision in the operating room for which look to go for, and they were on-point. Thank you!
The professionalism of the staff and doctor and the the way in which I received proper information. Dr. Ghazi has a great bedside manner with his patients and made me feel very comfortable and at ease about the surgery. His staff is very professional and knowledgeable and also made me feel very comfortable and at ease about my surgery. Also staff is great with communication. I just completed the surgery a few months ago, after having a complete mastectomy. The surgical procedure Dr. Ghazi performed had made feel very good about myself again.
Dr. Symbas and his staff provided a level of caring that was very unique. They were with me every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend that practice. They serve their patients from the heart! I feel whole again!
Dr. Symbas is great surgeon and a good, good person. He is warm, friendly, and professional. He treats everyone like they are members of his family.
I absolutely love Dr. Symbas and his staff. I always felt supported through out this whole process and I couldn't have asked for them to be anymore attentive. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is a very difficult life moment. However, when you have people like Dr. Symbas and his staff to help you navigate through the ups and downs...you soon learn you can get through it!
Felt I had two really caring doctors and they performed their duties with great skill and concern for patient.
Dr Symbas is not only a gifted surgeon but also very nice and sincere surgeon to his patients. He gave me his personal cel phone number in case I have any concerns. The staff as well are very friendly and sweet. My recovery was so easy, way easier than expected. And I'm could not wish for a better results! Definitely worth every penny. My clothes fit so much better than before. And it definitely boost my confidence
Kind environment, great Doctor with great skills. Everything went very smooth. Breast implants were making me ill. Really nervous about the final outcome look of removing the implants. Implants are removed, illness much better and almost completely healed and physical look of breast are perfect!
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are highly responsive. Whenever I had questions particularly after the surgery he personally responded within a very short period of time.
Dr. Ghazi is awesome. His personality is calm, sweet, professional and so warming. My definition in my abs is phenomenal and that's still with some swelling. The final results will be extra phenomenal.
The staff is very friendly and positive. They treated me with such care and were very careful to explain things over again until I understood perfectly what was to happen and how. This took fear out of the picture. A great group! Very comfortable with myself.
I interviewed several surgeons first, as my surgery would be a complicated reconstruction involving my eye, and effecting my vision. Dr Symbas was by far the most knowledgeable and able and creative. He was able to fix the problem and leave me with complete function and look.
Dr. Ghazi and the staff were very helpful and great to work with I am now very comfortable and able to shop and buy the clothes I want without any problems. Exercising is a lot easier as well.
Dr. Ghazi has a wonderful bedside manner. He told me everything that was going to happen before it did. He was always available when I had questions. He and his staff were truly with me every step of the way. I got the body I wanted!
Dr. Ghazi is the best plastic surgeon I've ever come into contact with.He is very patient with any questions and takes his time to answer you in full detail.His work is unparalleled and he pays special attention to detail.His staff is super friendly and knowledgeable and everyone in his office makes you feel very comfortable.I will refer all of my friends and family to this practice and Dr. Ghazi in particular. This procedure boosted my confidence immensely and gives me a piece of extra happiness each day when I wake up and look at myself.
It was a great experience and I'm thrilled with my results. I even came back in to have Botox and now have a friend coming in this week to get Botox because she is so happy with my results. Everything was easy and all questions were answered
It is not often we come across doctors who are as skillful and caring as this individual. Dr. Symbas attention to my physical care was shown through his skills however his attention to my emotional care is what overwhelms me. His words offered peace to my mind and enable me to trust that my questions or concerns are not trivial. The quality and value he placed on my needs is demonstrated whenever I communicate with him. Dr. Symbas is not a counterfeit but the genuine example of what I think it takes to be in this field. I pray that the students in medical schools around the world could come with his compassion, caring, kindness, consideration and SKILLS! It is my desire that these students become individuals who truly sees, hears, and values their patients as well as Dr. Symbas seem see, hear and value me. Thank you John Symbas
Everything was perfect ! Dr. Ghazi is always professional and detail oriented .
Great Staff. Informative and helpful prior, during and after procedure.
Dr. Ghazi is absolutely amazing. He really cares about you and your needs and explains things thoroughly. I would not hesitate to highly recommend him to anyone needing surgery. My incision has healed remarkably well too. When he came into the preop room he was so reassuring and comforting. I was so much less scared and nervous because of his caring personality. He hugs you and just makes you feel safe in his care. And you ARE! I recommended my niece to him too and she loved him and had excellent results as well. She got her breasts redone. Exchanging 14 year old saline implants for gummy bear ones. She LOVES them, they are the same size as before but look and feel more natural. She didn't realize how bad her old ones looked and felt until he exchanged them! He is an awesome plastic surgeon!
Everyone was extremely professional but with that all important personal concern. I never felt I was simply another patient". The emotional component of the surgery (before, during and after)is as important, and in the case of breast reconstruction due to mastectomy, even more so. Yes, my doctor and his staff not only listened, they actually heard was said."
Dr Ghazi is a very sweet and sympathetic doctor. He told me exactly what to expect. He is a very competent and skillful surgeon. Has always been available to answer any questions or concerns. Is sincerely one of the nicest people I've met in the medical field in a long time.
Feeling much better and light . Surgeon and staff are very nice. Surgery is very satisfied. Overall I like it.
Dr Ghazi is very kind, yet very professional as he cares for his patients. He is attentive and compassionate as you deal with various surgeries (double mastectomy, breast reconstruction, tummy tuck, nipples, liposuction) and very clear in presenting what will be done and how long it will take. He is patient to answer all questions and be sure you feel comfortable and safe with what is going to happen in surgery and the healing process. He is the best!
Very clear information and feedback. Bahair Ghazi, MD Is an incredible surgeon.
The staff there was very friendly and answered every question I had. They were highly educated in what they do and made you feel so comfortable. This procedure changed my life by actually possibly saving my life, due to the fact that cancer runs in my family.
Highly satisfied with Dr. Ghazi. He is a true professional, if I was to come back to this practice it would be because of his personal attention. He listens carefully, makes you feel he cares and answers questions clearly and specifically. Takes the time to call you if necessary to answer any concerns regarding the procedure, and he personally reacts immediately to your needs. I can not speak for the rest of the staff since I had my procedure at the Northside Hospital Breast Center. My experience with the coordinator was not pleasant, neither have much to say about the PA.
Dr. Symbas and his team have been a blessing my life. He took a terrible experience and situation I had been dealing with and completely fixed my problems from a previous surgery from a different doctor. My situation was shown immense care and attention to detail. I have since recommended his practice to friends and family due to his excellent work.
Dr. Ghazi, Emily and Robin are the best. They are attentive and made me feel comfortable.
Dr John Symbas is truly a remarkable doctor; he listen to his patients attentively and care for them; he is professional in every way. This was my second time having this procedure done, the first dr in my option didn't delivery what I expected from her as a patient; after several visits to her and explained the complications I were having she never once said to me that she was willing to go the extra mile to care for me first as a human being and second as her patient. I was already dealing with stress of breast cancer. Thanh goodness I was recommended to Dr John Symbas, he found that one of my breast was reputed and the other was installed incorrectly.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are extremely professional and go above and beyond to be friendly and to make their patients feel comfortable. They make you feel like they truly care about you and do NOT treat you like you are just another pay check. I was fighting cancer and was scared and they made me feel like it was going to be ok. They make me feel like they care.
Waiting room time too long twice. Not a deal breaker.
I had a double mactomy and they did it as well as they are now in the midst of my reconstruction. . DR. Ghazi, Emily and all of his staff are incredible caring people to work with. They always make me feel very at ease. Couldn't recommend them enough!!!!
Sent follow up email regarding the result of my procedure. Still awaiting a response more for more than a month.
Nothing was done wrong. The doctors both, Dr. Symbas and Dr. Bowman were great. The nurses in the waiting area before surgery were extremely nice.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are the best I have come across. I wish all doctors and their practice were as caring. Highly recommend and feel free to use me as a reference.
Everyone in this practice, surgeon, nurses, patient coordinator are excellent. Very caring, highly involved and responsive. I highly recommend Dr Symbas and his staff.
Surgeon and staff are very skillful and caring. Once the reconstruction is complete I know that my everyday life will be changed for the positive.
Dr. Symbas is absolutely awesome! He has great passion and patience- and genuinely cares about each patient. His staff is great as well- all our questions and concerns were addressed immediately. The results are beautiful- again Dr. Symbas took the time to explain everything and even the day of surgery he was still reassuring us everything was going to be alright. He is a Very caring and intentional person- could not have asked for a better surgeon.
Dr. Ghazi's bedside manner is amazing. He is incredibly talented, compassionate, thorough and generous. His team from the patient coordinator to PA, nurses and anesthesiologist went above and beyond to answer questions, provided excellent care, made follow up calls and ensured my safety at all times. I could not have been more pleased not only with the care I received, but also with my surgical results. Dr. Ghazi set my expectations appropriately for pre-op care and post-op care. I would and do recommend Dr. Ghazi to anyone I can!
Dr Ghazi and his staff made me feel like my surgery would be successful. Had had 3 other surgeries that didn't work.
Caring and highly competent surgeon an staff. Very kind & respectful interactions with surgeon and staff. Great results after breast cancer - correct aesthetic decision making.
I had a very hard time after being told that I needed bilateral mastectomies, and after much prayer, and faith I was referred to Dr. Ghazi and immediately felt better regarding the surgery and to know that after having the mastectomies , I would wake up with breast. I feel blessed to be alive, cancer free and have breast ! I was/am pleased with the surgical procedure - bilateral breast implants. I thank God and Dr Ghazi for recreating my breast. I really value and trust Dr Ghazi as my cosmetic surgeon. The procedure went smooth and uncomplicated from pre-op , surgery, thru post-op. The office staff are always professional and friendly.
Dr. Symbas made me feel extremely comfortable and confide the with the procedure. He gave me clear expectations for immediately following the procedure and the months after. I am thrilled with the outcome - Dr. Symbas did a fabulous job. Bed-side manner.
Due to my personal medical history as well as my job, I have met and dealt with many, many, physicians. Dr. Symbas has the best bedside manner of any physician I've know professionally and personally. He has been the most honest regarding what to expect during this time as well as the most concerned with my recovery.
The coordinator was very specific and sent everything over in a timely manner. Very impressed with dr ghazi. He has a great bedside manner and is very attentive. You can tell when you are talking that he is actually listening to you and generally concerned. His nurses are amazing and he worked beautifully with my obgyn with my hystectomy. I couldn't be more pleased. I have already referred him to friends and will. It use anyone else in the future for other cosmetic procedures. Wonderful experience from start to finish.
I love my new body. Everyone was very ready to help, Very respectful and smiling Dr. Smybas was Awesome
Because Dr. Sambas was absolutely wonderful to me and my family. He took the time to explain everything to my family and for me that was such a great thing to do.
They have the best team working on you!! I dont feel like people are looking at my face!!
Dr. Symbas is not only a fantastic surgeon but his bedside manners are off the charts. I have had multiple surgeries and will say that he the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. He takes time to discuss every question that you have. Bottom line, he makes you feel good!
I don't think about cancer everyday. Makes me feel like it is all behind me! Dr. Ghazi & Emily were easy to talk to. My left breast required a lot of work" due to radiation damage, but the outcome at this point in recovery looks very good. I appreciate all the effort they put into giving me natural looking breasts again. Now I don't have to be reminded of cancer everyday. "
I had a great experience and would highly recommend Dr. Symbas.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were exceptional, and made me feel so comfortable- from my consultation appointment to my post surgery appointments. Sarah was very helpful (and patient) answering all my CareCredit questions and with getting my surgery date set up. Cari is always welcoming to everyone who comes through the front door and is a great first point of contact when you walk in. Dr. Symbas has been the best and always made me feel comfortable, and was honest with what I should, and should not, have done. Whenever I had a concern during my recovery between appointments, I was able to reach out to him and would reply shortly after. Very happy with this practice and everyone who was apart of this experience! Thank you!
I love the result as well as the friendliness of the Doctor and staff. Very easy to schedule the appointment and the doctor fit me in quickly with little notice. Very happy with the result of making me less tired and less wrinkles.
Dr. Symbas is the most caring and wonderful doctor. He makes you feel that you are his only patient. He gives you all of his attention and takes the time to tell you everything you need to know and to answer all of your questions. He is an amazing human being. I had a breast reconstruction due to cancer. Dr. Symbas took care of me from the moment I met him until I was 100% recovered. He did an amazing job. I feel very comfortable and happy the way I look.
Dr Symbas is amazing - skillful - compassionate - considerate - I can't say enough of how wonderful he and his staff are. It was overwhelming is an amazing way how accommodating and personable he / they are. I was blown away that he personally called me the night before to see if I had any questions as well as out me at ease! I LOVE them all!
Being diagnosed with cancer is a very scary experience. The fact that my breasts are now more beautiful and symmetrical then before speaks volumes! . Dr. Ghazi and his staff were wonderful in every way. They made me comfortable and confident and always assured me that everything would be fine. My outcome after a double mastectomy, breast expanders and reconstruction was beautiful. I can't thank Dr. Ghazi and his staff enough!!!One can be totally confident in the expertise of Dr. Ghazi and his PA, Emily.
This procedure has given me my confidence back in my body and also has given me a spiritual awakening. I quit drinking and smoking due to this operation after 10 years of having these bad habits. I feel better emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. I am so grateful that I done this procedure and feel better than I have ever felt in my life. I no longer feel like I have to keep up with what society tell women what beautiful looks like and I accept myself for how God has created me in the first place. Dr. Ghazi professionalism, explaining what to expect, outgoing personality and my overall experience.
Dr. Symbas and staff were amazing. I was never rushed or treated unkindly whenever I had questions that I thought weren't important (and I had a lot of those questions). I was in excellent hands the day of surgery with my nurse Brianna. She chatted with me like we were old friends. She was very caring and showed a great concern for my comfort. Dr. Symbas even called me the night before surgery to answer any questions or concerns I had. I was made to feel like I was his only priority. Before the surgery began Dr. Symbas came into my room and went over the procedure with me and my mom. He even held my moms hands and told her the he would take excellent care of me. I was in excellent hands with everyone I encountered at Atlanta Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery!!
Dr. Symbas is the best! He is so kind and caring! Achieving the results I wanted.
I felt an immediate connection with Dr. Ghazi. The other Dr.'s I met with did not make me feel welcome or that they cared.Every staff member that I encountered were pleasant and caring.
First and foremost consideration was the skill of the surgeon,Dr. Symbas.In addition, Dr. Symbas is polite, kind and compassionate. I truly feel that he cares about his patient as if they were his family.The Staff are all efficient and friendly,yet always professional. The environment is very welcoming.Dr. Symbas and his staff are what true caring and service are all about.
The information and the asking how small i wanted my breast for reduction but i receive medicade do i guess thats how it goes
Dr. Bazhaiz and his complete staff are excellent. Neck and shoulder pain down by 95%. I am so pleased with my outcome.
Very happy with outcome. Enjoyed the wonderful staff.
when surveys are designed there is a bit of ambiguous language, so questions like were you highly satisfied with your overall experience is not specific to Dr. Symbas. I've had 2 surgeries w/ Dr. Symbas and will have a 3rd. So if the question you asked was bypassing everything else that happened at Northside Hospital outside of just surgery and the same about Piedmont were you highly satisfied with your surgery performed by Dr. Symbas - i'd say yes! Out of my whole surgery team, he's hands down the best communicator upfront, best surgeon, & detailed about a plan after surgery. His team follows that lead from his PA to his office staff. I just can't answer on an overall experience because if an anesthesiologist is going to get out of her lane & try to insert an IV for a failing nurse staff, then fail miserably at it - kind of puts a damper on the day before you even get to surgery. hope that helps, : ) Jennifer
I could not be more thankful that I chose Dr. Symbas to do my surgery! The entire staff has been absolutely incredible from start to finish. You can tell that they really care, and they have made me feel confident about myself and my results. They've gone out of their way to make this a truly remarkable experience, and I would choose them again for any procedure in the future. I am able to wear clothes that I couldn't wear before. I can exercise and run, and I couldn't before. It has given me confidence!
Dr. Symbas and staff are simply amazing. They are straight forward, kind, personable, and compassionate! I had several reconstruction procedures with a different surgeon and was left feeling very disheartened with the results. Thanks to Dr. Symbas and his amazing team I now feel much more confident!
All staff was very friendly, professional and helpful during all stages. Dr. Symbas was above and beyond to be caring, confident, concerned and always available.
The physician and his staff were kind and compassionate throughout the whole experience. I would recommend the office follow up with a phone call a day or two after a surgery to find out how the patient is doing or to answer any questions they may have post-op. I had no pain or discomfort after a bilateral mastectomy and implants.
My husband and I were HIGHLY pleased with our experience at Atlanta Plastic & Reproductive Specialists but most importantly, my surgeon, Dr. John Symbas. I had a mini" tummy tuck, breast augmentation and liposuction. We were VERY pleased with the final results thus far but most importantly would most definitely recommend Dr. Symbas to anyone looking to have plastic surgery. His bed side manner was amazing and we felt comfortable from the minute we met. "
Dr. Symbas is very compassionate and caring. He really listens to concerns.
The friendliness of the staff, and more so of Dr. Ghazi. He is professional, yet friendly and personable. He takes the time to listen and address any questions that I may have. On my first visit , I was over an hour late - coming from another state and being stuck in a traffic jam. I was seen and treated as if I had been on time. This really meant a lot . The single best thing about the surgical procedure is - I went to surgery with two breast, had bilateral mastectomies, but came out of surgery with breast. And the best news of all is----I am cancer free, Dr. Ghazi informed me that the pathology exam was like the cancer melted away - Praise GOD!!I couldn't ask for better results or report.
The pain level was very low and my recovery has been easy. From the beginning of my experience, Dr. Symbas was caring, considerate and listened to me. Because of his manner of being so present, he took away a lot of the fear for me about this process. It was easy to ask questions and he always took time to provide answers. His follow up after surgery has been the same - caring, considerate and complete. I will highly recommend him to friends and family for any type of surgery that he performs.
My huge apron is gone. No back pain, knee and hip pain gone!I have my energy and movement back! Hugely wonderful thing! . Dr. John Symbas is such an incredible physician as well as an amazinghumanitarian! He is the very best at what he does! I had a complex situation and he performed my surgery beautifully and treated me as though I were a member of his family. His surgery breathed life and hope back in me.Thank you Dr. Symbas. I am so thankful for you!P. S. The associates that are part of Dr. Symbas' team are fabulous people too!
My crows feet are gone! The Dr. was so friendly and made me feel very comfortable. He did a great job and I'm very happy with my results. I will recommend him to friends and will be back in the future.
This procedure has completely changed my confidence. I am so glad I had it done. Getting a breast augmentation was something that I researched and visited various doctors in order to ensure I was making the right decision. I feel like the same person and this surgery transformed something I have been insecure about for a long time. . Anytime someone undergoes surgery, much less plastic surgery it can be overwhelming and a source of anxiety. Throughout my entire experience starting with my consultation to my post op recovery, I felt completely confident in Dr.Ghazi and his staff. As a nurse I have experienced various bedside manners, and I have to say Dr.Ghazi's is impeccable and genuine. It was a great experience and I am so in love with my results. Dr.Ghazi listened to me, he took the time to answer all my questions, I had no complications and I felt prepared for the surgery and recovery. I had no pain and my recovery was easy, I contribute that to Dr.Ghazi's technique and skill as well as me being stress free the day of my surgery. Very good experience, he is good at what he does.
Very satisfied with the results. Dr. Ghazi is amazing along with his staff. They made me feel very comfortable and at ease during my procedure.
My breasts and abdomen look incredible. It was overall a great experience. My breasts look amazing and so does my stomach. Dr Symbas is awesome
Dr. Ghazi is so warm and caring! He really made me feel at ease during the entire process. He truly is a gifted surgeon and a very nice person!
Dr. Symbas! He's all around a great site on and he has a very good bedside manner. . Dr. Symbas and his staff are awesome. I have two small children and have been dealing with Reconstruction for more than two years. They are always accommodating when my kids come to the office with me. Dr. Symbas has always made me feel at ease and wowed me with his surgical skill. I followed him to this new practice because I couldn't bear the thought of changing providers.
Removed ruptured implants and replaced them. This is a big load off my mind to get this corrected. Everything went as well as could be expected. Staff is very good at what they do.
Having normal size breast makes me feel so much more attractive and better about myself. Dr ghazi did such a great job! Dr Ghazi is an EXCELLENT surgeon who listens carefully to his patients, makes them feel important and truly understands what they want and delivers it. He is so caring and compassionate as is his staff. I felt like dr ghazi and his team were family by the time my surgery was completed. I had the most amazing results and have been so happy every single day I had my breast reduction. Buying clothes is so much fun thanks to Dr Ghazi! I referred my hairdresser who had Dr Ghazi do a tummy tuck and she is thrilled with her results! We are both referring other people!!
I was always made to feel that I was very important in every part of my journey.
I am alive! Praying I never have to deal with this cancer again. Grateful dr symbas took care of me post surgery. Very grateful wound vac clinic helped treat post surgery infection from insulin pump. . Dr Symbas was caring and informative. Kind. His staff is first rate. Responsiveness to many needs was prompt and professional. The scar hides most of my earlier c section! I am concerned about lymphodema and breaking up the four and eight inch scar tissue to let lymphatic fluid climb from groin to armpit. thank you for your personal approach and hospitality.
I never felt overwhelmed or anxious. Everyone was professional and personal, what more could you ask for.
Having been diagnosed w/breast cancer, I had a degree of anxiety. Dr. Ghazi/staff gave me a sense of calm. My procedure (breast reduction)/recovery has been flawless. I've already told my primary care that if he (the group) isn't on her list of recommended surgeons, he (the group) should be!
The surgical staff day of surgery. i felt calm, prepared and fully trusted all of the individuals who were involved to make sure I was safe and taken care while I couldn't take care of myself. . Dr. Symbas is the best doctor I have ever had the experience working with in my entire life. He has an easiness about him, a calm approach, and a great listening ear. Dr. Symbas clearly loves what he does and creates beautiful bodies for those who have only dreamed of the perfect body. Dr. Symbas and his staff are always incredibly friendly and welcoming. Any question that is asked is always answered thoroughly with patience. When you think of surgery it typically has a negative connotation, not with this practice, they make the surgical process a pleasant one. Highly recommended!
The care from my doctor Not as much pain, and able to move on with life after 3 cancers. The care from my doctor was the best ever.
My back pain is gone. Dr. Ghazi is a great Doctor with a great staff, especially his surgical coordinator Lin.I'm highly satisfied with my results.
Dr. Symbas was very concerned about my condition and my recovery. He understood my life style needs and structured my recovery around this. My coordinator was very in tune to my needs in finding a home health care nurse. I was able to return back to work and play healthy.
Outcome has been very good but still recuperating and feel the overall experience was very good. The hospital and staff were attentive and Dr. Symbas and staff were kind and understanding.Facilities were clean and bright, overall experience was great.
I had a skin sparing double mastectomy with tissue expanders. They were quite uncomfortable early on, but the pain pills helped through the early stages and after that I have not had any issues other than I don't sleep on my back well :-). Dr. Ghazi and his staff are wonderful. They were patient with all my questions and very compassionate. They put my mind at ease.
Dr. Symbass is a sweetheart. very polite and nice. He listened to my request and got it all right. He is also very easy on the eyes. I has nice new perky breast.
From the time I entered the offices of Dr. Symbas, everyone was very courteous, attentive, and sympathetic to my concerns. Dr. Symbas spent a great deal of time explaining the procedure, etc. His P.A. and other staff members were also very thoughtful and kind. I was very impressed and highly satisified.
Everything was so professional and smooth . I am very pleased with Dr Ghazi .He is an excellent doctor and knowledgeable surgeon . He was able to make all experience with breast reconstruction after double mastectomy so easy. He knows how to make me laugh, give me a powers and strength. I am so grateful for that!!!
Dr. John Symbas is outstanding. . Excellent surgeon
The best thing about the experience was my satisfaction with the outcome and the safety Dr. Ghazi and his staff provided. Dr. Ghazi is a highly skilled and trained surgeon who has incredible outcomes, yet also has the extremely unlikely combination of having an amazing bedside manner and personable nature. What a rare gem!I've worked in the surgical arena for many years and know how unlikely this truly is! What a blessing to find him and have such an amazing experienced!I can't say enough about how happy I am with my body, my recovery and the experience with him and his amazing staff!!I would recommend Dr. Ghazi to anyone who is interested or needs a plastic surgeon! I traveled to Atlanta and highly suggest making the trip from wherever you are in the world!!
Dr. Symbas and all his staff were unbelievable.....the best of the best. His bed side manner by far out weighs any other Doctor I have ever had any experiences with. I can't thank him and his staff enough for everything they did for me.
Very subtle. Not noticeable as botox - just looks a lot better. Yes, was very satisfied with experience and results of the procedure.
Quick results and no down time. Experience was great! Love visiting the office.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer and this has allowed me to feel confident about how I will look in the future. . Dr. Ghazi and Emily are the best. They have made me feel comfortable throughout this process.
I no longer have trouble in my day to day activities. I can sleep on my side with no problem and do my daily exercise without discomfort. I have stage 5 capsular contraction in my breasts. The physical appearance is 100% better as well. Dr. John Symbas is the most amazing surgeon. He took a difficult situation I had in a previous operation and completely revised my complications. I am still heeling but the results are close to perfect. I have recommended him already to 3 individuals for breast augmentation survey. His care, attention to the patients needs and overall surgical practices are wonderful. Thank you!
I feel more confident and less self-conscious. I had a bi-lateral mastectomy, and i am most appreciative of everything Dr. Ghazi has done for me. Dr. Ghazi did a beautiful job on my breast expansion, and I like him very much. The nurse practitioners (or PA's?), and the whole staff, are pleasant and efficient. They made my recovery easier. It is a comfortable reception area.
Having breast cancer I was afraid I would never feel ok and or normal. Thx to their amazing work not only do I feel like a woman, but at 73 I look like I have the breasts of a 20 year old. The care and concern for me as a patient was amazing.The doctor made me feel very important and was very very concerned about my pain.
Comfort, symmetry, great results from a surgeon who knows his stuff, is kind, and is a good communicator. I have had a great experience working with Dr. Symbas, I would (and have) highly recommend him to any woman looking for a surgeon to do reconstruction after surgery for breast cancer.
That the staff was readily available to answer questions and the doctor was prompt to meet appointment times. Dr. Ghazi has a wonderful bedside manner with patients and their questions and concerns. He did a great job.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were very caring and helpful throughout the entire process.
Dr. Symbas' reassuring and comforting bedside manner. Love love love Dr. Symbas and all the staff! I also love how my boobs turned out with implants!
Dr. Symbas was the most compassionate we've ever dealt with!
He single best thing about the experience was the personal care you get with Dr. Ghazi and his staff. Dr. Ghazi makes you feel like you are his only patient and his top priority. . My experience was wonderful because of Dr. Ghazi. He has the best patient rapport I have ever experienced with a doctor. Because Dr. Ghazi really listens to what you want, the results are amazing!
The decision to have this third surgery was one that was difficult to make. I wasn't sure what the results would be and Dr. Symbas made no promises that it would help with the issues that I was having. I am extremely pleased with the appearance and the relief in the discomfort that I had been experiencing. I can wear clothes now without worrying about how I look and without being uncomfortable. This was my third surgery with Dr. Symbas and I had total confidence in his ability to provide the best outcome possible. He is always available to answer any questions I might have and is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have dealt with. I am very happy with the results and the care that I received during and after this procedure.
So much more comfortable . Dr Symbas is awesome! The staff was great!
listened to problems, gave clear explanations
Very happy with the staff, the doctor, the nurses. Everyone was very nice and made me feel comfortable and well informed.
After being diagnosed with breast cancer it felt like I was participating in a nightmare. I couldn't believe it was happening to me. The recommendation for a bi-lateral mastectomy seemed like such a barbaric way to treat some small, around a pea sized, lump. I don't remember that many details Dr. Symbas went over during my first visit, but I do remember asking many questions afterward. I'm sure I repeatedly asked the same questions at each visit. Everyone I encountered reacted to and treated me like it was the first time I had asked. I was always asked if I had any questions. And, I never once felt like I was being rushed so that the Dr. and staff could get to the next person. Also, the communication between Dr. Symbas, BCBS, and my Atlanta Breast Care surgeon was excellent. I didn't have to worry about any of the details. I hope no one has to have this experience, but I would happily recommend Dr. Symbas and staff to anyone!
Still healing but mostly pain free at this time. Still working to regain all normal life activities. . Dr. Symbas came highly qualified by Dr. Marino. I was extremely impressed by his compassion and professional manner. He took his time to explain what he had done and what to expect in the future. Very positive and confident. Thank you.
With the tummy tuck, I dropped two pant sizes but more importantly, lost the roll under my breasts. I gained a great deal of physical confidence. . I previously had breast cancer and Dr. Ghazi did my breast reconstruction with lat flaps. I was very happy with Dr. Ghazi and his team. I returned for a tummy tuck and found the same level of care and concern.
Well, my procedure was breast reconstruction due to cancer. Not exactly an elective surgery in the desire for cosmetic changes sense. Without this procedure, I'm sure I would have felt less whole", less of a woman, or, at the very least, I'd have been inconvenienced by having to wear a prosthesis and would have likely felt much more self-conscious sans breasts. Am I WHOLE-whole, as in normal-looking-breasts-whole? No. But I was not led to an expectation of such, so that isn't a "problem", per se. At least I feel like "normal" in clothes. And, really, getting used to how my breasts look and function (as in don't function) out of clothes is between me and me, and me and my husband. In other words, barring future nipple tattoo, I feel like Dr. Symbas got me as close to "good" as can be done under the circumstances. Judging by the after pics of others in my same situation, and the reactions of those "in the biz", it seems I've gotten a stellar result. So if I HAD to have breast cancer, I'm confident I have the best case scenario physically. Emotionally it will take time. ". My satisfaction with my experience is largely based on Dr. Symbas alone. He is a very genuinely caring individual, and he handled the sensitive nature of my procedure (breast reconstruction due to cancer) with warmth, concern, and a high level of professionalism. Because of my procedure, I had the opportunity to get to know Dr. Symbas over several months' time, which included 2 surgeries and several visits and procedures in between, so I feel qualified to speak to his nature. Engaging personality aside, he has terrific skills as a surgeon and I have what I understand to be a superior result, given by the reaction of him and the other doctors involved in my care. I knew what to expect throughout the process, and I felt like he really took the time with me during appointments, never making me feel rushed. Cancer is a scary time, and having to take so much of your life traveling to appointments and so forth, it is nice to not feel like just another patient, or a number", or any of the other sad-but-true cliche's. I found--and continue to find--Dr. Symbas VERY accessible. That is rare and comforting, to say the least. I've seen Dr. Symbas at 2 different practices, and had surgeries with him at 2 different hospitals. I enjoyed my interactions with the staff at both practices, and I felt well cared-for at both hospitals as well. I would say the only part of either process that made me feel like a "number" was some of the pre-op experiences. In particular, the intake portion of my pre-op at Piedmont Hospital was very cold and mechanical on the staff's part. I remember sitting in the waiting room after feeling sort of lonely and scared afterward. That said, the nurse who then did my bloodwork, etc, was utterly delightful and made up for the other part. Basically, I think the guy who did my intake was "over it" and/or hates his job, and it shows. But the fact that it stood out in the context of my entire journey speaks volumes about the good care I've been blessed to receive, and Dr. Symbas and his team were (are) a big part of that. I'm so grateful!
Won't know for sure until final procedure is finished but I'm expecting to feel spectacular and have my self-confidence back. Dr. Ghazi and his staff have been wonderful! I had breast reconstruction after lumpectomy and have my final surgery scheduled for next month. They have made this whole process so much easier than I ever expected and I would highly recommend them!
The Doctor is fabulous. The practice is lacking in preparing you for medical issues and/or expectations. Hospital and practice had two different sets of post op instructions that clashed. Disability paperwork that needs to be filled out by office was an inconvenience for them, and they charged me to do it. I have never been charged for that in all my life. Office Manager is responsible for all issues I had, not the Doctor...
I'm all fixed up and my breast look good. Dr. Ghaizi did amazing surgery with what he had to work with. I can wear all types of tops now. I am a very happy lady! Previous surgery was a success so the antisapation of this surgery was not stressful. Not much wait time and everyone involved was professional but warm and friendly and not much wait time. Only problem encountered was in recovery and that was. Very stressful. When I woke up I was immediately told to get up and get my clothes on. I could barely move my Arms and legs. They were no help in getting my clothes on just kept coming back telling me to get my clothes on and that my husband was waiting and I had to hurry. One of the ladies finally put my jeans on the floor and arranged them so I could get my feet in them I don't remember how I got my shirt on but they did not help!
The results! Dr.Ghazi and his staff are always professional, informative, caring and punctual for appointments, follow etc. He is a perfectionist with his surgery! Would have anyone else but the BEST!
I am very pleased with the procedure and look forward to the upcoming procedure. I feel a lot more whole having undergone one procedure and look to feel even better after the next. I was made to feel extremely important. All questions were answered quickly and information was given freely and as needed
I am highly satisfied with the staff, and Dr. Ghaze, just disappointed about the size and shape of my right breast. We are still working on making it better and I am very confident that there will be an improvement!
I look great ! . Dr Ghazi was very informative and patience, he made me for comfortable. Also, you did a fantastic job on my reconstruction. I am very pleased.
Friendly and caring staff. Really listened to my concerns and questions regarding the surgery
I had very bad frown lines on my forehead. Botox relaxes the muscles and the lines are much softer. I always love the results. I have gotten Botox from Dr. Ghazi several times. He always does a great job, never bruises me and never does too much. He has performed several other procedures on me and always does a fantastic job. I trust him completely and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a plastic surgeon.
The surgeon was very caring and concerned about my pain and emotional needs as well as my physical needs. The warmth care and concern for my well being was amazing.
I feel better about my appearance. When you are having any type of surgery done, you need to feel comfortable with the person doing the procedure. You need to know they care about you and your well being. That's Dr. Symbas. He's skilled, knowledgeable and most importantly, kind and caring.
Connection to the surgeon. Fabulous bedside manner."" Dr. Symbas could not have been more professional, personable and empathetic. A great experience! Thank you.
It let me know I have recurrent breast cancer and saved my life. Dr. Was outstanding
It makes me feel whole again i was highly satisfied with my experience as I had to change Plastic Surgeons to finish my Breast Cancer Reconstruction due to my Surgeon of almost 2 years leaving the practice. That was the most shocking and stressful experience as a patient to be left with the outcome not finished. Thankfully, I chose Dr Ghazi to complete the process and make me feel whole again. He is the most caring, compassionate Doctor any patient could ever ask for.....his strive for perfection is excellent!!
I felt I was in good hands throughout the experience. Dr. Ghazi is so personable and caring that it was a pleasure to go to each office visit. He is very comforting and encouraging.
I saw Dr. Ghazi in the midst of chemo knowing that I was having a bilateral mastectomy followed by breast reconstruction. We were welcomed and made to feel comfortable at reception. When we met Dr. Ghazi, he made us feel at ease, covered the different aspects and options with reconstruction, answered all of our questions, and then began to formulate his plan. I have now finished my last surgery with him and I cannot express enough what a gifted doctor he is. He has an excellent teammate in Katie, who is also outstanding. Our deep appreciation and heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ghazi, Katie, and the rest of the staff for making this go more smoothly than we ever thought possible. My results are amazing. Thank you!L.
Results were exactly what I wanted. As always the customer service provided exceeds expectation.
Dr. Ghazi was kind, informative, supportive and did an excellent job with both surgeries. Katie, his assistant, was also kind, very informative, knowledgeable and helpful. I would recommend them both. The support staff at the front desk was also friendly and helpful. I appreciated the fact that I did not have to wait long in the waiting room for any appointment. I am very pleased with my results and am healing nicely.
Dr Ghazi and his team are very professional and yet balance that with being very caring toward the patient. sometimes these surgeries can be stressful and confusing as you go through all of the steps bringing you to completion, yet, Dr Ghazi is patient, willing to repeat explanations, not brush you off, and always showing concern for the patient...to be sure they feel all of their questions are answered and they can feel peace" about what is going to be happening. he is the best! So is Kaitlin."
From the moment Dr. Ghazi walks into the room you immediately know he is the most caring man. I felt so at ease with him. I adore him and his entire staff. I have been going through breast reconstruction for a few years and my journey has brought me to this amazing man. For the first time in many years I finally feel I will one day be beautiful again and will be able to look at myself again. Dr. Ghazi truly cares about his patients.
Dr Ghazi is well educated and skilled at what he does. It is a pleasure to have a Doctor with good bedside manners not to mention his assistant is always available to assist with questions. The staff always have a smile and greet you when you arrive. The most important part is they will always call you back in a timely manner if you leave a message.
Yes, I was highly satisfied with my experience and the results. I had Botox in the forehead, between brows and crows feet. Dr. Ghazi has such a great touch that the injections didn't hurt at all, with minimal to no bruising. Could go about the rest of my day with no down time! I look relaxed and refreshed, exactly the results I wanted. The best thing about my results, that I look refreshed and rejuvenated like I have been on vacation!
The professionalism and the genuine courtesy for the patients and their families. The follow up calls,and the returning of calls regarding minor question was done in an efficient manner. The warm reception received during all follow up visits. Dr. Ghazi, is none like any other. He is always happy and has the most important quality that people look for in doctor. He has excellent bedside manners , he is funny and makes time to address all question and concerns. He is amazing and is spoken of in such high regards. I was blessed with a great physician and amazing staff.
The professionalism and caring of Dr. Ghazi and his entire staff as well as the hospital staff were most excellent. There were absolutely no negatives in the hospital and surgery experience. I have recommended Dr. Ghazi and will continue to do so. He is the most excellent and down to earth physicians I have ever dealt with.
I am very impressed and satisfied with Dr. Ghazi work . He is amazing doctor.
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are great! He is a perfectionist! He has a great bedside demeanor, listens to the patients needs and explains what to expect. I would refer him in a heartbeat!
There wasn't anything that I wasn't unhappy about with
This was my fourth surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Ghazi performed all of my reconstruction surgeries and was the most compassionate and caring doctor I have ever had. Through all the doctor visits and surgeries he has always been attentive to my wishes, listened to my complaints, cared about the outcome and through all of it he has always had a smile on his face! I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful doctor! More importantly, I am thrilled with how my reconstruction looks, it is better than I could ever have wished for. I can never repay him for all he has done for me physically and mentally, he is simply the best and I highly recommend him to anyone needing a plastic surgeon.
Great surgeon & very informed & cordial staff.
Physician indicated that he would lipo love handles during the procedure; this was not done
Dr. Ghazi and his nurse Katie did an excellent job of reassuring me and performing their jobs when it was such a stressful time for me. They really helped me through a very difficult time.
The practice is very organized, staff is friendly and knowledgeable and Dr. Ghazi has an infectious good attitude and always has a smile on his face. He was friendly and kind every visit and that is important when going through breast cancer & the subsequent breast surgeries. If I had the money I would have more surgery with Dr Ghazi as my surgeon. Also his nurse & other staff were kind and also had a great attitude every time I was around them. I am not sure how you guys do it, but all your staff are exceptional. Thank you for making cancer not so bad at all.
Every person I encountered at the office was very friendly and smiling. I was in a time crunch to get the surgery done and the patient care coordinator got me in for my consult, pre op visit, and surgery all in two weeks time. Not only did she make accommodations for me but I left feeling well informed with all my questions and concerns answered. The nurses were great too. Dr. Symbas was phenomenal! He listened to what I wanted and made me feel so comfortable with him that I did not feel the need to even go get a second opinion with another doctor or practice like I originally intended. I told him the size range I wanted and after surgery he said he went with the smaller one because of what I had said about wanting to look natural and proportionate and he said the pain would have been worse putting larger ones in. I am so happy with his decision and it made me feel good he listened and knew what I would want. I have already recommended him to anyone of my friends who are considering any surgery or procedure!
Well informed, friendly encounters, confident in surgeon and staff.
I am very happy with my breast reduction, results were excellent. Dr. Ghazi and his staff were wonderful.
The doctor and nurses were very friendly and knowledgeable about the procedure. They answered all of my questions and helped calm me when I was nervous.
Dr. Ghazi and staff were wonderful and treated me with respect. I appreciated that they listened to my questions and concerns and put me at ease. I would highly recommend Dr. Ghazi and I would go back again. Great Doctor!!
I am highly satisfied with my experience because of the great bedside manner of Dr Ghazi.
I was very nervous about my breast augmentation procedure. The Anesthetist was wonderful! She saw that I was nervous and got my IV going right away I was afraid that the anesthesia would make me nauseous and it did not. Dr. Symbas has a wonderful bedside manner that helps his patients to feel at ease and well cared for. I was very pleased with my surgery experience.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are AMAZING! The level of service they provide both before and after surgery was more than I had ever received from any physician's office. They listen to questions/concerns you may have and take the time to explain everything thoroughly. I would highly recommend them as well as would definitely return for other procedures if needed.
Dr Ghazi is amazing! The outcome of my surgery is beyond my expectations! It has given me a tremendous boost of confidence. Dr Ghazi's staff is wonderful. Very kind and informative and made me feel so comfortable and right at home!
I was very impressed from the day of my consultation as I was expecting to meet with nurses first. However the first person I met and talked with when leaving the waiting room was Dr. Ghazi! They provided me with ample documents and checklist to prepare for the procedure. After the procedure, Dr. Ghazi himself called me in the late evening to check up on me and again in the early morning. Dr. Ghazi has patients with major medical concerns and I was really impressed that he would provide the same amount of followup for my little ol' liposcution! I would highly recommend Dr. Ghazi to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
Dr. Ghazi was awesome. As was the staff. A completely easy and friendly place!
Dr. Symbas was absolutely wonderful. He made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend him to anyone. He knew listened to what I wanted and told me exactly what he thought I needed to do.
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and soon learned that the best course of treatment for me would either involve a mastectomy or bilateral surgery. I knew either procedure would greatly alter my body, but was necessary if I wanted to experience a full and healthy future with my husband of 35 years. After some deliberation, I chose to proceed with a Double Mastectomy. However, living without breasts or with prosthetics was not an option I was ready to accept. Therefore, my husband and I met with Dr. Ghazi, who came highly recommended by two of my other doctors. Dr. Ghazi explained what procedures he felt would give me optimal results and showed us photos of what we could expect. He encouraged us to return with questions before making our final decision. I brought one of my adult daughters with me on a scheduled appointment and Dr. Ghazi also answered all of her questions. We left his office with our fears dispelled, a sense of empowerment and confidence in his skill. It is now two procedures later and my husband and I are both very pleased with my recovery. Coupled with a sense of appreciation, I can honestly say everyone I have encountered through Dr. Ghazi's practice has been extremely professional, compassionate and considerate. I would not want anyone to have an experience like what I have endured since my diagnosis; but, I would highly and sincerely recommend Dr. Ghazi and his practice to anyone in need of an excellent Plastic Surgeon!
Yes! Dr. Ghazi does great work. I love the staff, they are curtious and professional from start to finish.
Dr. Symba and his team were really friendly and knowledgable. They made me feel really safe and confident. I am very pleased with my results. The doctor did a great job my tummy looks great! I cannot so enough how please I am my husband says I got my body back! The procedure was a walk in the park, I am so glad I made the choice to have a tummy tuck!
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are incredible!!!! I'm so pleased with my results, how I was taken care of and above all how caring everyone was. I've already recommended him to several friends. I wouldn't go anywhere else. They are FANTASTIC!!!!!
I was originally very nervous and even hesitant as to whether or not to go through the procedure. Dr. Ghazi and his staff made me feel assured, comfortable, and confident. I trusted them to do what was necessary to obtain great results and, without a doubt, they delivered. Dr. Ghazi stayed in communication with me the whole time, before and after the surgery. I received calls before the surgery to make sure I was physically and emotionally ready. After the surgery, I received many more follow up calls and even a nice get well card from Dr, Ghazi. They were with me through the whole recovery process. Office visits were easy to schedule and I never had to wait more than 10 minutes to be seen. It was great experience!
Dr Ghazi and his staff were very kind and warm and that helped me to be at ease. The surgery on my nose was brilliant. I couldn't quite imagine how my nose would look after the growth was removed but the shape of my nose was restored, the scarring is much less than I had anticipated and continues to diminish.
I was satisfied because the doctor seemed very trustworthy.
Professional feedback and atmosphere.
I feel so grateful to have found Dr. Ghazi for my Breast Reconstruction surgeries. He is the kindest, most caring doctor and also an extremely talented surgeon. This was the third surgery he has performed. He reconstructed my nipples and took fat from my abdomen to fill in the sunken spots on my upper chest. I am so happy with the way my breast reconstruction looks, I never thought it would look better than my own, but they do. His entire staff is wonderful and I always look forward to my visits. I would highly recommend Dr. Ghazi to anyone needing a plastic surgeon, especially breast cancer patients. He truly cares about his patients and strives to make the entire experience as stress free as possible. He is the best!
Dr. Ghazi was amazing! He performed a wide excision to remove a small malignant melanoma. Due to the location a plastic surgeon was recommended for the procedure. From the minute I met with Dr. Ghazi he made me feel completely at ease with the procedure I would be having. The day of the surgery he explained everything and post op was amazing explaining recovery. He is so incredibly kind and warm, and an amazing bed side manner!
The Dr was great. From beginning to end , very professional, caring, made me very comfortable throughout the whole process.Shia nurses were great available when I had concerns.
Very professional staff .. Dr. Symbas makes you feel very comfortable and explains things extremely well.
Experience was great. Very pleased w/ outcome & the team and office staff are all very professional.
I feel Dr Ghazi and his team made me feel like family and every concern I had was there's as well, from a breast cancer survivor prospective Dr Ghazi exceeded my expectations of my reconstructed breasts I feel he made a miracle happen, I feel like I'm a normal woman again
Dr Ghazi is kind and patient and I needed that level of compassion with what I was going through. He never made me feel nervous or scared with what was about to happen. It was important to me to have someone to hold my hand" through this process and he and his staff did just that."
Dr. Ghazi and his staff were wonderful!!! This was a difficult procedure (skin graft and muscle flap over knee) that included co-ordination with an orthopedic surgeon and infectious disease doctor as well. All questions and concerns were answered promptly post surgery (I sent several iPhone photos post surgery when I had a concern or question regarding the graft and the staff responded quickly with specific instructions). He did a remarkable job!!!
Everyone in the practice is friendly, professional. I would recommend Dr. Ghazi to others.
Dr Ghazi was very nice and experienced. He took time to explain everything. Since Im a breast cancer patient he took time to travel to see me at my oncologist office so I dont have to get too tired during chemotherapy time. He is just such a good doctor, very easy to talk to and he listens.
Dr. Ghazi is a wonderful surgeon and a very compassionate person. He always made me feel special and was so easy to talk to. His entire staff is probably the friendliest group I have ever encountered in a medical environment. From the time you walk in the door of the lobby, until you leave the office you are made to feel like you are their most important patient. A huge thanks for all of them and I would recommend Dr. Ghazi to anyone thinking of surgery.
I have always felt secure at this office. The whole staff is friendly and extremely competent. Because of my lowered immune system, some complications did occur,but Dr.Ghazi recognized them for what they were and handled them promptly.
I only ended coming to this practice because I had to have my breast removed because of cancer so when I decided to have the reconstruction I was referred by Dr. Rizzo. When I first met Dr. Gahzi he was so personable and made me feel safe in his hands. He explained what he would be doing and why and showed me pictures of what I would not look like. He showed me his work and let me know he would take good care of me and I believed him and he has. I have not been the easiest patient but no on ever made me feel that I was a bother and my concerns were always addressed.
Being told you have cancer is devastating for any woman. Having to have a double mastectomy even more so. Thankfully Dr. Ghazi was recommended by my breast surgeon and he was a godsend. He treated me with respect and compassion and truly cared about me as a person, not to mention that he is a wonderful surgeon. My mastectomy surgery and immediate reconstruction went as planned but I was surprised at how hard the surgery was. Dr. Ghazi was a bright spot every time I had to get checked. I only had to have one fill since he filled them pretty full in my surgery. My implant surgery went extremely well and I truly look better now than when I started. He is a fantastic doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone! I even had him work on my face between surgeries. He injected juvederm, voluma and botox and he did a fantastic job with that too!
Love working with Dr Ghazi and his staff!
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are very kind and helpful providing detail information on the procedures and making you as comfortable and they can. Dr. Ghazi is very kind and tread patience with a lot of respect and care about the patience concerns and address those accordingly. I highly recommend Dr. Ghazi. I'm so happy to have him as my Dr.
Dr Ghazi was very helpful giving me the information about my procedure. I had breast cancer and a problem when the other physician inserted the ballon (not her fault) and both physicians responded promptly.
Dr. Ghazi and his staff are the greatest .
Dr. Ghazi is so kind and personable in addition to his outstanding surgical qualifications. I felt extremely comfortable with him and knew that he understood my desired surgical outcome. He personally called the night before surgery to see if I had any questions. What other doctor would do that? I have never had a call from a physician prior to surgery before. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.
I have a compassionate doctor. I've already recommended him to people based on what they were lacking with their own doctors.
The surgeon took a personal interest in me...very warm, engaging, always available to talk with any concerns...
I was highly satisfied with the overall peel process from start to finish. Dr. Ghazi and his team were very thorough in what to expect, how it will feel and aftercare. His concern for my comfort during the treatment was foremost.
From the time of the first visit, the staff and doctor were kind and supportive. When my insurance initially denied coverage, the doctor called and discussed the need with the insurance company, and subsequently it was approved.The procedure experience itself was seamless. I perhaps could have used more information about recovery prior to receiving anesthesia, because I don't remember what was said after the procedure. This includes what I should expect in the way of appearance (there is some asymmetry at this point in the healing). Overall, excellent experience!
Dr. Ghazi was wonderful and caring. Robin was excellent nurse during this process and very informative. Lin was very caring and informative during the cost explanations and all the staff with whom I interacted in the office were very pleasant and responsive to any concerns and efficient in all aspects of check-in and checking out with appointments, letters and prescriptions. I am pleased with the outcome and look forward to continuous recovery and future experiences with Dr. Ghazi.
Dr Ghazi was very professional, honest and knowledgeable. He made us feel comfortable with the procedure. Everyone we talked to was very polite and helpful and the facilities were child friendly.
The entire experience was fantastic. The staff is awesome the doctor was amazing from explaining exactly what I would experience and being there for me when I had questions. My experience couldn't have been any better.
Dr. Ghazi really cares about the health and well being of his patients. He listenes well and tries to make the best decisions for his patients
I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction. Dr. Ghazi was recommended to us and after meeting with him we decided to have him do the reconstruction. I am so glad we did. Dr. Ghazi is so kind and compassionate, I always felt like he sympathized with me and took his time during my visits. I am also very pleased with how breast reconstruction looks. He is a very talented surgeon and I would highly recommend him to other women undergoing breast surgery.
Dr Ghazi and his staff are very personable and always make me feel welcomed and comfortable. Their work is excellent andI will always recommend them to people and if I need any further surgeries I will return only to Dr Ghazi and his staff.
The entire staff was friendly , knowledgeable and professional
Dr. Ghazi is the most incredibly highly skilled and professional plastic surgeon there is!! He was meticulous with his work and I am absolutely thrilled the results! He followed up many times prior to and after the surgery answering any questions I had carefully and thoroughly. His office staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Dr. Ghazi amazingly also has the best bedside manner and is so genuine, down to Earth and nice! What a great guy and such talent!! Unbelievable hands! I've already referred him to multiple friends . . . two of which have been to him and had the absolute same experience!
The DR was very caring also great to work with, everyone in the office and hospital were great.
I was highly satisfied with my experience because of the overall professional yet friendly and warm manner of Dr. Ghazi and his team. I felt completely at ease and calm about my decision for a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation. The results have exceeded my expectations and have restored my body and confidence! I Would recommend Dr. Ghazi and team to my family and friends!
Dr. Ghazi and staff did an excellent job. From the first to last visit very humble and friendly. I would pick him for another surgery if needed.
I was informed, I was prepared and we had a plan that was carried out. I was amazed at the results and how well the healing process went. The first surgery when I was discharged left me very concerned as the staff in the surgery center felt I might have done better in an overnight stay. It was rough on me and my wife that night. We heard what to expect but were not prepared for the results that night. The nerve damage I did not expect even though it will heal with time.
My tram flap breast reconstruction surgery could not have gone better. Everyone explained every detail beforehand and I felt confident in my doctor and the procedure. Furthermore, my doctor, his staff and hospital personnel were caring and very attentive to my needs.
Dr. Ghazi was great, felt immediate connection and comfort with him operating on our son. Since it was our 10-month-old baby getting a procedure, this was not easy for us. But we felt very comfortable with all of the people involved, and the whole thing happened without any drama or heightened stress for my wife and me.
Dr.Ghazi is a brilliant surgeon ! Always very caring and patience to listen to my concerns. He made my surgery and recovery wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone that needs plastic surgery.
The staff were amazing to work with. Dr. Ghazi is fabulous and I will follow him wherever he goes!
Dr. Ghazi was wonderful in all respects!! He listened to my concerns as a parent and was responsive to them, he put my child at ease, the surgery and post op visits went well (and I overheard the surgical center staff speak highly about his technical/surgical expertise) and his bedside manner before surgery and during recovery was impeccable. The surgical center was pleasant and proficient, and I was impressed at the bedside manner of the nurse-anesthetist as well. I would highly recommend them!
awesome staff of employees, friendly, caring, honest, and down to earth, they made everything seem wonderful.
Incredible physician, both professionally and personally..
Most friendly and personal staff, made me feel comfortable and like family.
I have already referred my family and friends to Dr. Ghazi.He is Excellent!Thank you.
Don't know if surgical procedure could have 'totally' reduced swelling beneath eyes and I am sensitive about having more tissue removed than what was displayed during post surgical visit.
Dr. Ghazi and his nurse Monica and Lilli were the nicest people I have ever met. Dr. Ghazi is a really skilled surgeon and made my surgery and recovery the best I have ever seen. My results are stunning and I will be coming back for more work. He is very caring and a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him for any and everything that got to do with plastic surgery. An outstanding doctor.
