Breast Augmentation

I had an easy time checking in, and had a lovely cup of coffee made for me while I waited. Although I did have to wait a while to be taken into a consult room, they made up for it by giving me a starbucks gift card. During the consult I felt my opinion was valued and they heard all of my concerns and thoughts.

Breast Reconstruction

The staff were very attentive and well dressed. The office is very presentable and classy. The doctor looks great and kind. Looking forward to many visits and to complete my goal. Thanks

Breast Implant Revision

Very professional clean and accommodating the doctor was friendly and explained everything I needed to know I will definitely have him do my surgery!

Breast Implant Removal

Everyone was both professional and caring. I need both those qualities from care providers. Everything ran like a well oiled machine. I felt confident in the expertise of all involved in my surgery.

Eyelid Surgery

I was vey impressed with the staff and Dr. Bolitho. Everyone was very informative and just down to earth people. I liked that Dr. Bolitho asked a lot of medical questions. I have had other consultations, where they did not ask these types of questions. I was impressed with the awards that Dr. Bolitho has earned, which were given to him by his piers. Karen said he does not like to put these plaques on the wall. She also said that he does not like to advertise. I respect his humbleness. He has all 5 star reviews. I had no doubt when I left his office, that I would choose him to do my surgery. I am scheduled for end of October.

Brow Lift

Noticeable different shapes on eyes. Incisions different on each eye. Hooding and sagging back on sides of eyes. Bad eye problems very irritated.
