Face Lift

The visit was very thorough and not rushed; the doctor explained things clearly, honestly and in detail. She was patient in answering my many questions and I felt I was in very capable hands. Her staff was also very friendly and thorough.

Breast Implant Removal

Everyone was friendly & professional. Did not have to wait for my appointment. Dr. Maxwell is great. She took her time to explain the procedure & really cares.

Face Lift

I felt at ease with Dr. Maxwell and she gained my trust during the visit. I appreciated the body lotion I was given since I had to wait a little longer than expected.

Neck Lift

The staff explained everything that was going to happen the day of the surgery after I arrived at the surgery center. The overnight nurse, (I think her name was Patty) was awesome, very friendly and compassionate.

Body Lift

The results were amazing. Dr. Maxwell is very caring. She spends time with me to answer all of my questions. Explained the procedure in detail. Both her and her staff provided excellent care before and after the surgery. As a Nurse Practitioner myself I understand how important it is for the Provider and staff to make sure the Patient gets the best care possible. That is what you get from Dr. Maxwell and staff. I recommend her to everyone that I know looking for cosmetic surgery.
