Gwendolyn S. Maxwell, MD Reviews (570)


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.

Tummy Tuck

Jody and Dr. Maxwell made me feel comfortable with my insecurities and didn't judge me. (At least not to my face..ha) There were no sale pushes. They recommended but didn't push and respected my thoughts and opinions in regards to extra procedures.

Breast Implant Removal

The staff was very professional. I was made to feel very comfortable and they seemed to care about me.

Face Lift

Everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr. Maxwell and Jody took time and answered all my questions. It was a very satisfying meeting.

Breast Augmentation

To whom it concerns, I was treated with respect. Dr. Maxwell understands what I will be happy & confident as a woman. Dr. Maxwell did my implants 18 years ago since now I haven’t had any problems I get compliments everywhere I go. Dr. Maxwell has changed my life. All staff are friendly, respectful.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Maxwell took quality time to fully explain my physical conditions and was very engaged with my concerns.

Eyelid Surgery

My eyes look wonderful. The surgery was quick and painless. I healed enough to go out within a week or so. Dr. Maxwell was great at seeing me immediately when I accidently slept on my side and then had pain. It is wonderful to look in the mirror and see my actual eyelid.
