Laser Resurfacing

My experience was exciting and informative. My hopes and dreams are finally going to become a realization because of the care and compassion of Dr. Maxwell and Jody. I never thought I would be able to have this surgery and they are making it a reality. From the time I entered the office to the time I left everyone I came in contact with made me feel very comfortable and reassured.

Face Lift

First of all of how I was welcomed when I first walked in, 2nd how the nurses/ tech's were attentive & heard all my concerns, & not judgmental...made me feel so conclusion Dr. Maxwell is beyond the sweetest honest down to earth person I've ever known.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Maxwell is an amazing surgeon. She made me feel at ease through the entire process. My body was slower in the healing process and Dr. Maxwell has been helping me along the way. [Single best thing is...] The amount of skin removed is life changing. It helps that Dr Maxwell is amazingly talented working with a plus size woman that lost 100 pounds and had skin issues.

Dr. Maxwell is a perfectionist. She has the eye of an artist. I am elderly with no health issues. She has a surgical unit that is HIGHLY rated so it can handle any emergency.
