Brian Vassar Heil, MD Reviews (379)

Breast Augmentation

The size was just what I was looking for and everyone was very helpful throughout the process.

Breast Reduction

Wonderful staff. Dr. Heil surgery was exactly what I needed. Results are perfect.

Face Lift

Dr. Heil was very caring, professional.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Heil made me feel comfortable and understood the end results I was looking for. The care I received before & after the surgery was wonderful, everyone made me feel comfortable. I was happy with my end results and would highly recommend Dr. Heil and his practice. I like the fact that Dr. Heil is working with one patient at a time during surgeries, at least from my prospective. Also the care from the nurse in the surgery center can't be compared to other hospitals.

Breast Reduction

Staff VERY friendly and professional. Everyone seemed genuinely concerned about my situation. The office was clean and comfortable feeling.

Breast Reduction

Happy with results. Nurses were nice. Staff is very caring.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was very nice and professional. I felt very comfortable with the staff. The environment was very warm and welcoming.

Mommy Makeover

This was my 4th consultation and my final! I had been at 3 previous offices and was so disappointed in my experience and was about ready to just accept my post baby body as is-not great. Then I called and spoke to Sandy who was so informative and friendly I was excited to give them a shot! The moment I walked in the office was beautiful and everyone was so welcoming! The PA who spoke with me was so genuine and informed, and Dr. Heil took his time one on one (first Dr. to do that!) and made me feel so at ease. I am so excited to move forward and see what's next with premier!

Breast Augmentation

Knew what he was talking about. Direct.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Heil has done several surgeries for me in the past. I would not choose any other Dr. to do my future surgery. I highly trust him with my goals.

Tummy Tuck

I didn't feel rushed. The entire staff was extremely helpful and explained everything in great detail.

Tummy Tuck

From start to completion the staff was friendly, competent and on point. The surgery was not only fabulous from the results perspective but the procedure was smooth and anxiety free.

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. Heil explained the procedure in terms I could understand. He took the time to answer any questions that I had. [Single best thing is...] The high quality and standard of the staff during the process from start to finish.

Face Lift

Excellent service. Dr Heil is extremely knowledgeable, answers all questions and gives you his time with compassion and care. His staff is extremely excellent in abilities and personalities.

Treatment / Procedure

I guess I should have asked more questions, but after having the procedure I think I would have like a better explanation of what to expect afterwards.

Eyelid Surgery

PA and surgeon took time to explain surgery and answer my questions and seemed very knowledgeable


Dr. always takes the time to carefully explain options. Excellent bedside manner.

Breast Augmentation

Pleasant environment and greeting. Staff is EXTREMELY friendly, explained the process thoroughly and assisted with advising best options that I am attempting to achieve!

Breast Reduction

I felt the staff was very prompt. They listened to what I had to say and I left with a plan .

Breast Lift

Dr. Heil and his staff are very friendly and professional. The atmosphere of the facility was calm and comforting and everyone there makes me feel at ease at every visit. Dr. Heil did a wonderful job with my breast lift and augmentation. He is a perfectionist and truly an artist and I am very pleased with my results.
