Gwendolyn S. Maxwell, MD Reviews (577)

Face Lift

The virtual visit was smooth and saved me a trip (I live in Phoenix) until I am ready to commit to the surgery. I have had a procedure done by Dr. Maxwell in the past so I am already familiar with the facility and the overnight suite etc.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Maxwell was really informative during the consultation. Her staff was friendly.

Breast Lift

Everyone in the office was very professional and helpful. Dr. Maxwell is kind and answered all my questions while explaining the procedures. I feel very confident in choosing Dr. Maxwell as my surgeon.

Eyelid Surgery

I felt that the consultation was very detailed and thorough. Other options were also offered and explained that would enhance the procedure that I was interested in.

Breast Implant Removal

Was given detailed information from Doctor and patient care coordinator. Very knowledgeable and detailed. Polite and friendly. I felt very comfortable.

Neck Lift

The staff were all very pleasant and knew what their part in the interview was. The doctor didn't rush through my exam and was very patient with the questions that I had. Everyone that I encountered from the receptionist to the doctor were very interested in making me feel comfortable and did not rush me through any part of my visit.


The staff was extremely nice, thorough with their instructions and dedicated to meet the patients' needs.


Very professional and courteous staff. I felt very welcomed and comfortable.

Face Lift

Dr. Maxwell and staff are very professional and experienced. I had a clear understanding what was to take place and what to expect. The whole experience was great even with the stress of doing this during COVID times. No hesitation, I would do this or another procedure without a doubt again. Dr. Maxwell is very meticulous with how the end result will be. We adjusted some aspect of my end result right before surgery that turned out to be a perfect decision.

Eyelid Surgery

It worked. Eyelids stopped closing. Well cared for during procedures.

Neck Lift

Dr. Maxwell and her entire staff treated me like family every step of the way. I know I was in great hands.

Face Lift

They understood what I wanted and how to go about it. They answered all my questions. They were very supportive and caring.

Skin Cancer Removal

Everybody was wonderful.


Jody is amazing. She was easy to talk to and understood me right from the start. I immediately felt comfortable and understood.

Laser Treatment

The person I spoke with was well informed and made an intelligent assessment of the situation, told me she would get back to me after speaking with Dr. Maxwell and she did, and everything she told me made good sense.

Neck Lift

The office staff were professional as well as helpful throughout my visit. The nurse that is in charge of my case was thorough and explained what was going to take place as well as what it was going to cost.

Arm Lift

Just felt Dr. Maxwell and her assistant were there for me. Listened to why I was there and what I wanted to achieve, not a speech about all the surgeries they've done for other people and how they think I will look or how I will look to other people. I am doing this for me, to make me feel whole and confident, not how somebody else will perceive me. She was thorough and yet not so business like, more personal.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Maxwell and the nurses were very helpful and understanding. They listened and genuinely cared about what you had to say. Can’t wait for my surgery!

Mommy Makeover

Results achieved. [Single best thing is...] Expertise of Dr. Maxwell.

Breast Lift

Dr. Maxwell is very attentive and caring! I will never go to someone else. I even drove across two states just to have her perform her work. I trust no one else.
