The staff is helpful, understanding and work hard to make things happen. Dr Roark was my surgeon, but Dr. B was my follow up and didn't hesitate to say you look great, but follow up with a treatment below and to feel free to come back if I had questions. My future daughter in law was the reason I choose LJCSC. She encouraged me based on knowing me and you were great. I was really scared and not sure if I wanted to follow through with the procedure, but am thrilled I did. My neighbor actually made an appointment and had a facelift right after I did. He and I had joked about this for a long time, but after seeing me and meeting with DJ and Dr. Roark he was all in. The worst thing is parking !!
Dr. Roark was amazing and delivered exactly what he said he would. Very happy and happy I decided to have my surgery with him. I feel confident when I look in the mirror.
I feel I gave all of my information to the dr and my surgery was still not done right. I was referred to you by a prior patient, with rave reviews, so I did the surgery and only to find out that it was not done right. I also have a dent on the right breast, along the inside from a stitch that is very noticeable. When I mentioned this, they said it was harder to go from the bottom, under my breast , which is not where he was supposed to do the incision. I feel it was rushed that morning I went in... and I was not completely informed as to where the incisions were going to be. The nurse and the doctor should double and triple check prior to going in.
Dr Roark and his staff treat me as family. I have been coming to him for 15+ years and have had two surgeries by him. I am very happy with the results and the entire process and experience. I would recommend him to everyone. his bedside manner and staff
Great and professional staff
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark performed my first face/necklift 13 years ago, so I was thrilled to discover that he was still practicing. I refer all my friends to Dr. Roark, 2 of which recently had work done by him. He is an excellent surgeon with an artistic eye and he has a delightful personality.
I had a lot of hanging skin and was very embarrassed how I looked and now with my tummy tuck and breast lift I can wear a bikini I have never been able to wear one because I have been over weight my whole life. I feel light I don’t need to hide behind baggy clothes. I honestly can say I love the results. . I lost 109 lbs. Dr. Roark first did my tummy tuck and arm lift. The whole procedure was not painful the doctor and nurses were always answering any questions I had. A year later I did my breast lift which I love how my body was transformed thanks to Dr. Roark. I feel very comfortable with everyone in the clinic they all make you feel special. I will be back for more surgery’s and have already recommended my family to have a consultation there. I’m really sad Dr. Roark is retiring really soon.
Because the doctor and the nurses were very sweet, I wasn’t scared.I had a fantastic experience and recoveryThank you doctor
I got 3 Dr./ opinions regarding a lateral repair I needed on my breast implants, the different opinions on down time, General recovery and pain to be endured was not very appealing to me (specially recovering from a major rotator cuff surgery). Needless to say, I was very aprenhensive and NOT looking forward to do this procedure. Dr. Roark and his staff just made this experience simply unbelievable, the recovery was easy and about 95% PAINLESS, I was so grateful for their professionalism and integrity in making sure ALL went well including the anesthesia which normally makes me very sick... could not be happier with the results, I will refer friends and family to this practice hands down !!!!
Attention to detail is awesome. So very happy with the results. The attention the whole staff provided was over and beyond expectations l.
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark is clearly very experienced and a very kind and personable surgeon.
Dr. Roark and his staff were very kind and professional. They made my experience very pleasant by reassuring me about my before and after care of my procedures. My breast augmentation has been physically life-changing. I'm very satisfied with the way they look feel and overall how they turned out and my experience with dr. Roark and his stuff.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark provided me with all pertinent information and made me feel that I had all of the facts needed to move forward with my procedure without hesitance. Dr. Roark is compassionate and one of the best bed side manners that I have every experienced with any other doctor/surgeon. Sarah provided me with the initial consult and was very informative and provided me with a sense of comfort and education. She went above and beyond prior to my surgery and had continued you to reach out and follow up with me since my surgery. I could not be more elated and I am over joyed with the results of my surgery. The Anesthesiologist Hass was extremely informative every step of the way making me feel safe and comfortable in addition the entire Post Op Staff was kind, gentle and very professional. I give this experience a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend the entire staff to anyone interested in getting this procedure done or any procedure.
Everyone was great! Made me feel very comfortable from start to finish. Great experience! The day of surgery was easier than expected. No pain and very pleased with results.
Dr. Roark and his team made this whole experience very comfortable and I am SO happy with the results of my breast augmentation I’ve already been recommending my friend go to him. It was so much easier than I expected.
I can't narrow it down to just one thing. My breasts are no longer saggy and the excessive skin and fat on my tummy is gone. To top it off, the scars are healing well! I was most nervous about the appearance of the scars after the procedure due to the darker pigmentation of my skin. But i am ecstatic that it is beautifully healing. Dr. Roark is amazing. His professionalism, attention to detail, and friendliness is always a great experience. The visit is topped with care with his main nurse, Sarah and team. I'm never treated like a number; it feels like family where people genuinely care about you, from start to finish.
The results, of course! After the procedures performed by Dr. Roark, my appearance has improved drastically. I look and feel beautiful, better than I did at 21. While I am serious about diet and fitness, looking my best has motivated me to take even better care of my health. Also, the nurses and staff are all professional and friendly. They treat you like a queen. All this and the excellent skills of a talented surgeon like Dr. Roark made this a life changing experience for me.
Dr Roark is great. Very personable and real. My husband is thrilled.
great staff smoothness, how everything flowed
[Consultation Review] I am straightening back my nose after being asaulted by my ex boyfriends.The nurses and doctor had been very kind and compassionate. I appreciated a lot that.
Dr Roark was very attentive. The whole experience was very rewarding The staff is amazing When doing elective surgery feeling comfortable is key
Dr. Roarke is the best!Very kind, he answers all my questions. I have referred him to all my friends asking if I know a good Plastic Surgeon.
I am more confident and extremely happy with the outcome . I loved everything starting from the front desk to the rest of the staff. Dr. Roark was amazing and very professional, he listened to me and answered all my questions. I have recommended Dr. Roark to everyone I know. I am extremely happy
Dr. Roark is amazing and very professional, I am very happy with my results and I am recommending him to everyone I know! Thank you dr and your staff so much for all your care and attention I had no pain
Dr. Roarke is an experienced surgeon, which is important given that much of the surgery is art as much as it science. The outcome of my surgery (breast lift and tummy tuck) was better than expected. My breasts and tummy tuck are sculpted appropriately with my body. The staff is incredible. Kind, patient and attentive. The service was personalized to me. Dr. Roarke's nurse was so incredible. She was always there to help me before and after surgery, to answer all of my random questions.
Wonderful communication and care from my surgeon and his nurse. Care surgeon took with pre surgery marking on areas for surgery. Lovely after care and quick response to questions. Great facility and wonderful employees. Good response to the very few questions I did have.They worked with me to help me understand the aftercare for laser, which I had along with my surgery.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark made me feel very comfortable. I like the fact that he has a lot of s experience and that the probcedure is performed with an anesthesiologist.
Dr. Roark is a life changer. He is a perfectionist and highly skilled. He takes his time with me in each appointment and I feel everything is going so well because of his care for me. His nurse Sarah has always been quick when I reach out to her with a concern. It's so amazing what a great efficient team they are. I always feel I can reach out to Sarah and she helps me through or orders the medication I need. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Roark, Sarah, and the rest of the team. My whole experience with each appointment since my surgery has been great. The time and care I have received and am still receiving is above what I expected. If I plan anything else in my future requiring surgery I will definitely request Dr. Roark. I trust him completely.
Everyone was very caring and made me feel very comfortable. Took time to explain and answered all my questions. Feel better about my appearance, more confident
[Consultation Review] I felt completely safe for the surgeon and all the other staff!
I’m very happy with my results and the care that was given to me along the way.
Wonderful service made me feel very comfortable answering all my concerns and questions. Felt they really listened and cared. Best place for anyone to go for cosmetic surgery. The staff and doctor were excellent
[Consultation Review] DJ is amazing and the definition of customer service provider. Sarah was professional and personal; perfect!
[Consultation Review] A very pleasant experience. Nice to have a nurse involved in the consultation. I have used this doctor before and love him. He is very conscientious and conservative.
Friendly office staff, Great nurses an Dr. Roark is the best. Makes me feel better....l
Big fan of dr Roark, Brittany, Sarah and Shelly. Highly skilled staff that put me at ease before during and after all treatments. Highly recommend to family and friends
Dr Roark and staff are wonderful! I have also done cool sculpting with Lauren and
The staff at LJCSC are outstanding. From the reception desk to the nurses and doctors; everyone is outstanding. Dr Roark and Sarah were so incredibly helpful and accommodating. I couldn’t ask for more.
Had the surgery very happy with all of the staff and how they treated me. Too soon to see complete results yet but what I did see was incredible. Important to understand if older 60 plus it does take a toll out of you.
The entire staff was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Every one was patient and answered any and all questions with ease. Also for me it is scary going under and I felt quite relaxed due to the staff and anesthesiologist which was a big deal to me. I feel more like woman and more confident now.
I already expressed my concern on the previous page. I really like my doctor, and the practice, as a whole. I just feel that the doctor didn't take responsibility for the mistake that he made with my surgery. Now I have spent time, money and am still not recovered, only to have the same type of issue that I went in for the doctor to relieve me of.
I had a great experience . I'm happy with the results . I'm satisfied with the experience .
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark and Sarah took a lot of time with me explaining everything and answering any questions that I had.
Overall it was a wonderful experience! I love how things came out and I love my doctor and my nurse they make me feel comfortable! I feel beautiful! It changed me a lot i feel great!
[Consultation Review] The entire staff have been incredibly helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Highly impressed.
From my first appointment with the Doctor and his wonderful , helpful staff to the surgery and the care and results I can't say enough about the excellent care,results and aftermath care. My breast reduction has given me such a new found freedom. I can swim, do my yoga and aerobics without my breasts handicapping me. My appearance and self confidence are so much better now.
Dr. Roark is an exceptional Plastic Surgeon. He was at all times caring, warm and knowledgeable, demonstrating both confidence and humility as it relates to his craft. He possesses a rare combination of character and skill that only magnifies the quality of care he provides.
I do like the profile view of my nose, and it does look very natural which was quite a relief to me. My results are what I am truly dissatisfied with. The team and facility was truly great! Dr. Roark seems extremely knowledgeable and very kind, but I feel like I am just not seeing what I want to see. I do know that a rhinoplasty takes time, and is not an immediate fix. It has almost been 3 months though and the swelling has gone down a lot, but I am still disappointed in my results. I tried to voice these concerns, but Dr. Roark and the nurse reassured me that with time it will look better. I am giving it the benefit of the doubt, but my 3 month appointment is coming up and I will voice my honest opinion and hopefully something can be done about it.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark along with all the nurses and staff had a great attitude, were incredibly knowledgeable and happy to help. I got the explanations I needed and answers to all my questions!
[Consultation Review] I am a returning patient of Dr. Roark's. I recommend him to all my friends. I trust him implicitly. I plan to have my tummy tuck scar revised but am waiting till I need some other work done on my face and neck. Dr. Roark did suggest what he would do in those areas but I think I will wait a little longer before I schedule the surgery. It was a little more expensive then I anticipated but I am assuming the added cost is due to the anesthesia. I would like a future estimate to itemize the costs rather than just giving me a total cost.
[Consultation Review] Everything was handled with care and discretion and comfort.
The experience that I had was more than I had hoped to have. The staff made me so comfortable and made me feel that I was in good hands with Dr. Roark and he was the one if those doctors you can fall into his hands and know everything is going to be ok. I will have more surgery with him and I'm recommending him to my friends. My tummy tuck is healing so well and I didn't have that much pain after surgery that I was astounded with his work. Thank you Dr. Roark!! Well the recovery of the tummy tuck was awesome, I thought I was going to be in so much pain and I wasn't. The staff and Doctor was made me feel at ease.
[Consultation Review] I am a repeat patient. I have great things to say about. Dr. Roark
[Consultation Review] All staff were friendly and approachable. Dr was great! I am still deciding what to do.Its a lot of money and takes planning of time on more then just my part. I would recommend this staff to everyone. I was very satisfied with the answers and was assured I would receive proper care. If I had a career to do over again I would work for a plastic surgeon! Everybody seems to love the job!Thank you
Dr.Roark and his staff are great! I was a little apprehensive about going into a plastic surgery office, but they made me feel very comfortable. I had a breast augmentation and was really set on how I wanted them to look and size & Dr.Roark puts in 150% on getting you as close as possible to the end result you want. Im Definitely happy with how they turned out and would definitely go back in the future! Dr.Roark and his staff really made me comfortable I was so nervous.
Im very satisfied so far with the results. I also feel the staff were very accommodating and patient with me. I previously had issues that were causing me discomfort I think the surgery has helped to resolve that.
All staff are professional. A conversation with all staff is warm and friendly with information of all procedures.
Dr Roark took his time and made sure my fillers were even and perfect.
Most of the wrinkles on forehead and between eyebrows are gone! I still have wrinkles in the crows feet area!!! Which, I did not have the very first time seeing Dr. Roak, which is why I went back to him!
[Consultation Review] The whole process was easy and efficient. It was very clear to me what was to happen and how. Everyone was very clear and friendly.
Everything about Dr. Roark and his team were outstanding. I was never worried about my surgery. I knew within minutes of meeting the team that this was where i wanted to habe my surgery. They were all very attentive and patient with all my pre and post surgic I am more than satisfied with what my procedure has done for my self confidence and my look. I never thought i could be this happy with my body and my decision to go through with this surgery.
The entire process went so smoothly and the staff (from receptionist to surgeon) was exceptional and I felt that I was treated like a valued client. The surgeon was experienced yet spoke to me in terms that were easy for me to understand. I had my own nurse who called me frequently both before and after surgery and was always available either by phone or email for questions. Pricing was slightly higher than other providers however I think the slight premium was worth it given service and results. I'm very happy with results and will absolutely return for any additional procedures. pre-op preparedness. I was provided with so much info on what to expect and all of my questions were answered such that I did not have any fear of surgery.
Start to finish, everyone was professional and courteous. The result was great. In lots of little ways. I'm much more self-confident in my body.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his nurse, Sarah, made me feel extremely comfortable and talked me though the whole procedure and the surgeon's vision. They made me aware of what I should expect after the surgery as well. They are great to work with!
Dr. Roark and his staff are absolutely awesome. They are always polite, professional, and caring. I also like that Dr. Roark educated me on a couple of other procedures that I haven't tried but would like to in the future. Thank you so much! Dr. Roark knows exactly where to place the botox. My heavy lines have softened and I feel like my face looks more awake!
[Consultation Review] The Doctor made me feel very confortable and everything that he explain to me made me feel he new what he was doing. Sara is also very helpful and kind just made me feel very welcome.
I had no problem with my surgery. But I was told that I would get a Halo Laser treatment after at the valve of $2000.00, I went to the pre treatment appointment and they set up a appointment for March 30 I drove all the way from Lake Havasu City Arizona and they told me they could not do the treatment because I had Olive skin color. So they did a little laser on my nose only. Did not thinks that was a $2000.00 gift. [name]
Great experience and love the results
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark was very personable, approachable and thorough. I loved that he focused only on the area of my concern and did not try to persuade me to get other procedures that I did not seek out. He is an outstanding surgeon and his nurse Sarah is great also.
Very good pre and post operation communication. I feel much less self conscious about some facial issues that were bothering me before the surgery.
Very nice people who listen to what you have to say. They then try deliver what you want. Very pleased!
[Consultation Review] I know that Dr Roarke and his staff see hundreds of clients. Even though I saw him over 15 years ago, he didn't make me feel uncomfortable for my requests or concerns. The atmosphere was very professional yet casual. I have been in other offices for other reasons in the area and although beautiful the atmosphere seemed almost cold. La Jolla Surgical Center provides a good combination of both warmth and professionalism.
[Consultation Review] The surgeon really listened to what my husband and I wanted and he exceeded our expectations.
Great experience. All staff and doctor were amazing. Listened to all my needs.
[Consultation Review] The staff was great. Made sure I was comfortable and had every question I asked answered. Dr. Roark did an amazing job.
[Consultation Review] Very experienced and professional staff
Dr Roark did an amazing job!! I love my body for the first time in 16 yrs (since my first kid). He is obviously a perfectionist because my breast looks perfectly symmetrical and pretty on my body . My tummy and hips looks very sexy, if I had to say so myself!! Staff was super informative and professional! They call me all the time to make sure I am doing ok! Thanks Sarah and Dr Roark !
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark makes you feel very comfortable, answers any questions and is extremely knowledgeable about his field. His staff is so sweet and comforting as well. I loved his nurse, Sarah. And we had a great experience with Riana in the financial department as well.
They were over & beyond amazing & took such good care of me, took time to talk about things w/me. I've never had a place worry and take such wonderful care of me before... I'm amazed still at how well and great everything went & looks. I would never go anywhere else. Thanks So Much For Taking Care of Me It has changed my life 100% for the better. After going through a year of hell&lies& 2 surgeries before& felt hopeless because Place before had been awful & tried to tell me I was crazy nothing was wrong & just put a bra on and don't look at them. This place fixed everything that had been done to me by the Dr before. They fixed everything in 1surgery & I felt better in 2weeks after surgery than the whole year before w/a surgeon who was not board certified. I am so grateful that my year nightmare is finally over and the 3rd surgery I was taken care of & fixed finally after a year & 2 surgeries before this place took care of everything!!! I look better than I ever thought I would after all I'd been through w/the place before. I can't thank you enough for all u did for me:).
I have no complaints about my surgeon or the staff. I underestimated the recovery but that is no fault of the surgeon or his staff. I am very pleased with the results.
The professionalism and politeness of Dr. Roark and staff made me feel confident and welcomed. No more baggy eyes!!
[Consultation Review] I feel safe and confidence in Dr. Rourke's work .
[Consultation Review] Specific information was provided and the staff was courteous and professional.
[Consultation Review] The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly! Great and comfortable atmosphere since day 1.
Dr Roark is awesome!! I'm so happy with my breast lift. He was very understanding and human in his approach. Providing a lot of details at each time we met. I felt very confident of the results and in very good hands. His nurse Sarah is the best! she was very attentionate, checked on me before and post surgery, gave me loads of information and tips for the recovery. The entire team at La Jolla Clinic is very good, responsive and client focused. Thanks again for helping me feeling so much better about myself and looking so good!
Dr Roark did my initial breast augmentation in 1989 and they lasted till now and needed to be replaced due to rupture of one side. My breasts have always look natural and they still do even after new implants. I was very concerned about my breasts looking natural and they still look great!
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark and his staff were very kind, friendly, professional and made me feel so comfortable. He took his time to listen to my requests and questions, and also advised me regarding other procedureSooo cute!Sooo cute! I was considering. The overall experience was extremely positive and I would highly recommend him to others. My only disappointment was I needed to have my surgery as soon as possible due to a ruptured inplant and needed a specific time frame due to my work schedule and time off. I also had decided to include 2 other procedures and wanted do all at the same time and the office was not able to accommodate a my request the dates at the surgical center.
I feel much more comfortable in my body ! . Dr. Roark is an anazing doctor and so friendly as well. Great facility, very clean and nice.
Dr Roark is such an amazing surgeon and explains things very well to about the process, especially the results: Post Op 1 week, 2 week, 4 weeks, 2-3 months and he's been spot on what he's said. I'm at the 3 month mark and it's exactly like he said He also makes you feel very comfortable and that you can trust him and that is key for me to select a plastic surgeon doing a procedure on me. I like how I look now I just want to refresh myself a bit that's not drastic and he nailed it!
I've known Dr. Roark for about 20 years now. There is no other person (doctor, nurse, etc.) who I trust with my health, body and appearance, he is second to none. I thought I needed a filler between my eyebrows, Dr. Roark corrected me and told me it was the muscle and used Botox. It is completely flat now! I don't know how he did it, but he's magic. :)
I immediately look more youthful. I did not have to wait long to get an appt. The appt was on time. Dr. Roark is great. The front office staff are very helpful.
[Consultation Review] All of the staff that I dealt with was very sweet and welcoming. Dr. Roarke was very friendly and enthusiastic. He seemed like he couldn't wait to help me, which felt nice. And he clearly knows what he is doing.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was very professional.
It's changed it tremendously I feel much better about how my body looks. I don't have to look at those terrible stretch marks and excess fat anymore. It's haunted me for years. Thank you LJSC!! Dr. Roark and his staff were amazing. I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck done and received nothing but the best care i could ever imagine. Everything from the beginning to the end was a great experience. I would definitely recommend La Jolla Surgery Center to anyone.
I have a raised swollen area at the scar line that is not going down. I will address the issue with my doctor at the follow up appointment. They have been wonderful so far and I'm sure they will take care of the problem.
The staff was excellent in the prep before surgery and after. They emphasized the patience necessary to to celebrate the outcome. Dr Roark and Sarah did an excellent job! I enjoy the slow steady progress of the face going back into place with the glancing into the morrow each morning.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark made me feel very comfortable and spent much more time during the consult with me, than any other doctor I have gone to for a consult.
[Consultation Review] I had a procedure done at LJCSC 5 years prior, and felt so at home, relaxed and well taken care of. Would not go anywhere else, and have since recommended (although they've not yet scheduled) Dr Roark to friends of mine, who I'm sure he'll end up meeting. The whole office staff was/is amazing, feels like coming home, they treated me like family!
I've had surgery here before so I'm very happy and satisfied with the staff and surgeron. I just couldn't afford it this time.
[Consultation Review] I loved Dr Roark's vibe, I instantly felt like I can trust him. Sara is Pretty awesome too, she went out of her way to help me and answer all my questions. Jennifer was great as well, she answered all my questions. I feel safe and like I am in the best hands and I am looking forward to my procedure.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark performed my breast augmentation in 1999 and it's time to redo them. Dr. Roark's office is professional and I feel very confident that Dr. Roark will do a great job when I get my procedure redone. I did not schedule the appointment right away because I was going out of town and I needed to check my schedule with my employer. I'm still not 100% sure on a date, but I'm working on it. I was a bit disappointed when I did not get a follow up call from Dr. Roark's coordinator after the appointment to follow up with me. So, I will contact them when I decide on a date. The dates they had were far out for the day that I wanted my procedure, which I understand, so I will try to schedule as soon as I can. Dr. Roark is very professional and a wonderful plastic surgeon. I have complete faith that he will do a great job. I like the fact that he gave me a discount for being a returning patient and that I will get a discount for paying cash. That makes me happy, too. Thank you!
[Consultation Review] I have had surgeries performed by Dr. Roark in the past which were highly successful and Ihave complete confidence and trust in his abilities. Also I trust and enjoy the staff and the facility.
[Consultation Review] The doctor was very caring, took his time to show me pictures and explain things to me. I felt very comfortable.
[Consultation Review] I was highly satisfied with the entire experience from consultation to after surgery. The entire staff from front desk, to finances, to nurse to doctor were extremely friendly and comforting.
[Consultation Review] I've had other plastic surgeries by Dr Roark and have always been very satisfied. And all of his staff have been very nice and helpful.
The entire process was explained to me well & thoroughly, everyone made me comfortable and made sure to answer all my questions. The procedure itself was quick and I didn't experience any complications before, during & after the procedure. I appreciated the staff checking in on me after the procedure. Sr. Roark & the staff at LJCSC are so friendly and professional. I cannot say enough great things about my experience. I could go on for days.
Everyone who works there was awesome! All the doctor and staff are very caring. They really want the bast outcome for you. That I'm not in constant pain anymore.
[Consultation Review] Because of one staff member making it uncomfortable.
The results! I was depressed with the way my body looked prior to surgery. I changed my diet & exercised more. But, the flab on abdomen was saggy & bulgy.Now that I've had my tummy tuck, I'm more confident & content knowing that I chose to do surgery. From the beginning of my journey, Dr. Roark was a refferal from a former patient. I liked the fact that his office did offer Military discounts on surgical procedures. My husband is an emergency first responder & this was accepted (with proof of credentials). I loved how informative Dr. Roark & his nurse, Sarah were during the initial consultation. What I liked even more was the the thorough reading booklet patients are given prior to the pre op consultation. I made sure I highlighted EVERYTHING that I had questions about.Dr. Roark was aware of my career & gave me the time off I needed to heal properly before returning to work. I went to every follow up appointment after my surgery to make sure I was healing correctly. During my time off from surgery ( 7 weeks ) Sarah gave me her contact number in case I had any concerns. And this gesture really put me at ease. I did contact Sarah quite a few times on her cell phone & she was quick to respond by text/ phone call immediately.
[Consultation Review] Dr.Roak,Sarah and all the of Staff are phenomenal! I truly appreciate everyone patience and making me feel comfortable.
Dr Roark was great and all anxiety. Loved the end result
I am much happier with my more feminine body and I feel more confident. . Friendly and attentive staff, clean office and OR, happy and supportive atmosphere.
[Consultation Review] Was very uncomfortable with the staff member I met with
[Consultation Review] Felt very comfortable and loved the result from the other patients that were previously performed. The surgeons had the experience and as a result my surgery afterwards looks amazing :)
I love doctor roark. He is the best!!!
[Consultation Review] I felt I was in very good hands
I don't look like an old lady!! Dr. Roark is a true artist. He does amazing work. He and Sarah are so warm and friendly too. I really enjoy seeing both of them.
[Consultation Review] I knew Dr.Roark before he was a physician. He impressed me as a young man and even impresses me more know.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and Sarah and the entire staff were so friendly , professional and very personable . I can't express how comfortable they made me feel . I've never been so excited to get surgery ! Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting with them or anyone in the office knows what I'm talking about . They answered my questions , I never felt rushed and I automatically felt like family. Highly satisfied is really an understatement , they are an exceptional team !
I looked refreshed and younger. I am happy with my results. Thank you! My experiences with Dr. Roark in LJCSC's office is always amazing and professional. I received the BEST quality of care! Thank you for making me look and feel BEAUTIFUL!
I was told I look fresh and younger. I like the results and Dr Roark opinion
[Consultation Review] I felt total confidence from my first contact and visit. The staff was very courteous and helpful. My experience with Dr. Roark and his staff exceeded my expectations. The doctor was patient and caring. He answered all my questions, never acting like he was in a hurry. I felt I was educated about the procedure to the point where I was much less worried than I initially thought I would be. Everyone I came in contact with seemed hand picked to make my experience as comfortable as possible. I am already recommending Dr. Roark and his practice to friends and family. I would Not hesitate to return to Dr. Roark for future procedures. I really appreciated the level of respect and care shown to me as a person and patient. I am very impressed and I thank you for taking such good care of me.
[Consultation Review] Feel comfortable in the office and completely trust the doctor
[Consultation Review] The staff and office was very inviting and comfortable. Dr Roark was very informative and answered all my questions or concerns. Great sense of humor and made me feel very relaxed. Sarah his nurse was so friendly and made me feel like I was a patient for many years even though this was our first encounter. Karla the care coordinator had all information available for me and answered all questions and was available whenever I called for follow up questions. My overall experience was excellent. I was referred to Dr Roark from my friend who had the same procedure 11 years ago and had a wonderful experience. Was so glad I got to experience the same level of satisfaction as she did 11 years later. If I were to ever do any other procedure I would not hesitate to go back to Dr Roark.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his assistants were always professional yet easy to be around. Never stuffy always helpful and delightful. I felt totally comfortable with everyone. Even Jane, who has the difficult job of talking funding. I'd recommend this group to anyone looking for a reference for a honest, caring and talented practice for their elective yet very personal procedure.
I have always been very happy with the results obtained at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery
Stomach was not flat as expected. I believe it needed a little more lipo and I discussed it with the doctor but nothing was followed up with. Scars were too high on hip therefore exposing the scars with panties on.
I didn't have to come back for retouches and I look very natural. The doctor explained to me how he decide to put the units he thinks I would need instead of over-doing. It worked perfectly. He was much better than the previous surgeon that did my botox before and who used to put more units than Dr. Roerke.
[Consultation Review] As soon as I entered the staff was so friendly. not only were they great to me but I could see and feel my two little toddlers having a enjoying their time and feeling comfortable as if they were home. After, seeing the before and after pictures during my consultation and having a clear understanding of the procedure I felt and knew I was in good hands. I was no longer nervous to get the procedure done.
[Consultation Review] I enjoyed my experience with this office. I felt heard and respected and understood. My expectations of the surgeon were exceeded. My surgeon is exceptionally talented and kind. This was very important to me. The only thing I noticed was the receptionist was routinely less than friendly each time I came in the office. Initially that made me uncomfortable until I realized everyone else was kind and courteous and was there because it's not just a job" to them."
[Consultation Review] The procedure is somewhat more costly than anticipated. I was not very impressed with the before and after photos of the neck lifts. Especially the men's neck lifts.
[Consultation Review] Actually, the entire consultation was straight forward, and presented in a way that I completely understood what was being presented. The consultation atmosphere was friendly and all questions were listened to and answered. All supporting staff did all they could do to insure the consultation was first rate. Really, don't have any ideas as to how it could be better.
[Consultation Review] I have known Dr. Roark for many years and was thrilled to discover he was still in practice as he performed my original breast augmentation. I had no problems over the many years I had the original implants. He is so kind and treated me as family. The nurse that helped me (sorry but I can't think of her name right now but I'm sure it is in your records) was so kind as well and was very thorough before Dr Roark came into see me. It was like seeing an old friend!
[Consultation Review] I appreciated all the staff treating me with interest and respect. The surgeon took the time to explain the procedure and what is realistic.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable during my consultation and was very satisfied with the answers and information that was provided in relation to any questions that I had.
Dr. Roark is the best! He is extremely detail oriented and you can tell that both he and his staff genuinely care about their patients. My procedure was done on a Friday & Dr. Roark came in that Saturday- just to see how I was doing. I had rhinoplasty done with Dr. Roark and a week and a half after surgery not even my own parents could tell that I had a procedure done. It has only been two months since surgery and my results already look both amazing & natural. Dr. Roark emphasized during my consultation that we did not want change my appearance drastically, but instead correct the minor imperfections. It was such a relief to hear this conservative approach to rhinoplasty. I would highly recommend Dr. Roark to both my friends and family- he is wonderful!
Dr. Roark has performed surgery for me in the past, and when I needed my breast implants replaced, I chose to return to his practice. He is a skilled, gifted surgeon and I am extremely happy with the work he performed. I plan to return this year (2016) for another procedure.Also, the skin laser/chemical peel on my face turned out great! And, the Botox is great, too.Thanks!
I loved the results. Treated areas were right on target. Results were completely satisfying. The wrinkled areas (crows feet) were treated. My skin was smoother. One area of concern above my eyebrows and that was lessened dramatically. Natural looking.
Dr. Roark -listened to what I wanted...and did his very best to provide it, and my results were highly satisfactory. He is a great guy and is thoroughly professional and easy going and congenial. Which is very soothing while discussing surgeryand the outcome.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roarke took his time with me…did not rush the consultation and made me feel very confident in his recommendations. Only negative was that the price I was quoted over the phone was lower than the quote I got at the office by about $1400.00.
[Consultation Review] I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Roark and his staff. They were nothing short of amazing. I was so nervous and had a small time window that I could actually get the surgery because I am a mom to a special needs child with autism and ellipsey and a 22 month old and they not only made it happen they made it as easy as possible for me. Which is nice because having a child with special needs my life revolves around him but they made this happen so I could have ME time. I will be forever greatful.
Dr. Roark has performed surgery on me before and he knows what my expectations are and he always meets them. He is charming, professional and kind.
Dr. Rourke listens to my concerns and addresses them precisely with courtesy, skill and professionalism.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Rourke and all of his staff are always so kind and considerate. Everyone seems to genuinely care about my comfort and concerns. I have already recommended Dr. Rourke to several friends, which one has a consultation appointment this week!
[Consultation Review] Great People, Nurse Celeste is excellent, Dr. Roarke is great
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his staff were so accommodating during my consultation allowing me to have my 8 month old son with me. They answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable to with the decision I made to have breast augmentation. Dr. Roark has a wonderful bedside manner and this calmness about him which definitely leaves a patient at ease. Nurse Sarah and coordinator Mary were very quick to respond to any questions I may have had through email or over the phone. An amazing team to have on your side!
Dr Roark is awesome! He always finds time to fit you in for an appointment. He makes you feel at ease, and always shows concern for his clients. He also has a nice sense of humor...which helps on relaxing the patient
[Consultation Review] Overall experience was very professional, thorough and comfortable.
[Consultation Review] great staff. impressive surgeon
Great Doctor....precise and artistic. Took lots of time to look carefully at where he was placing injections. Inspires lots of confidence.
Everyone was very nice, knowledgeable, patient with my questions, and comforting with my concerns. I felt safe and well taken care of from my very first meeting. Dr. Roark, his nurse Sarah, and the care counselor were very warm and personable. This was my first experience with surgery and they were very comforting!
the staff nurse and doctor are always very pleasent and very patient with me !!! thank you dr. rork and the rest of the staff.
I was going to my high school reunion and had some botox around the eyes to reduce the crow's feet and crinkling. It did not produce any results. Unfortunately the doctor was out for three weeks. He was returning after the reunion. The office offered me to see another practitioner but that would have cost more money.
DR. Roark Is the nicest man very caring I felt very confortable with him, This is the third surgery I have had with him. So You can say I am very happy.
Dr Roark is amazing. He made me feel completely comfortable and excited for my procedure. I have not met many doctors with such a warm and caring bedside manner. The entire office staff, including front desk, were welcoming, kind, and helpful. I was very pleased over all with the entire experience, especially my fabulous results!!! I love my new and improved look! Thank you Dr. Roark. :)
Dr. Roark and his nurse Sarah made me feel so comfortable. Sarah made her self so available to answer all my questions during post surgery. Dr. Roark made me feel like a million bucks. I would recommend them to anyone seeking to have procedures done.
I always have great results from Dr Roark and the girls at the front desk always remember me and are so friendly.
I initially had a breast lift and augmentation 2 years ago with a different doctor and my results were terrible! I was already a DD breast cup size and went with the doctor's advise to put a small implant in for a more youthful look. It only made my boobs larger and the lift ultimately unsuccessful. On top of that, I experienced a nontraumatic ruptured implant and needed to have them taken out. Needless to say, I was not going back to that doctor for the revision.I researched Dr. Roark after being recommended by a family friend. After meeting with Dr. Roark, I was sold! Dr. Roark and his staff are amazing! I felt 110% confident and comfortable with my choice to proceed with Dr. Roark. All of my questions and worries were addressed about my prior surgery. He made it a point to make me happy with the results he would give me. He explained that he would take out the implant and give me the proper lift that was needed initially. Before and after my surgery, I could call the office and talk to my nurse immediately. Since I had to deal with the removal of the ruptured implant during my breast lift surgery, the staff has been so helpful in reporting the case to the company and keeping me updated with details. I am extremely pleased with my end result. It is everything that I wanted and more. I went in with the expectation that my breasts would never look perfect, however, THEY ARE. I am a little over 2 months post-op and I could not be more happy. I have recommended all of my family and friends to Dr. Roark with full confidence that he and his staff will take care of my loved ones and give them amazing results.THANK YOU DR. ROARK, you have made me a more confident and happy person.
Everything was PERFECT. I am a huge fan of Dr. Roark and his team. Everyone made me feel comfortable, explaining everything I needed to know. If I ever have another procedure done, I'll be back! :)Thank you Dr. Roark!!!
Dr Roark is personable, kind and has a wonderful bedside manner. I would see him more often if there was a promotion on Botox, the price is still high. He is an expert though, and I feel very comfortable with him.
Dr. Roark and his office staff were all very friendly, attentive and informative. They responded quickly to emails or messages, answered questions thoroughly and followed up when needed. The day of surgery and all pre and post op visits all made me feel very comfortable with the experience.
Dr. Roark is a very professional doctor, I had a complete facelift Nov. 5th 2014. I'm very pleased with the results, Dr. Roark is a very skilled doctor with lots of experience. The staff was wonderful and helpful in everyway, I'm very grateful that I selected the right Doctor, that is so important to having a great outcome!!!!
Experience and quality of work
A very personal experience. I felt like I was their only patient.
[Consultation Review] I thought Dr. Roark was exceptionally knowledgeable and caring. His bedside manner definitely made the process very comfortable and easy for me which is very important. Also, the staff was very helpful and friendly.
Dr Roark and his staff are simply wonderful!
[Consultation Review] The surgeon plus all other staff involved in the consultation including the receptionist were extremely friendly and highly efficient. I have not decided whether I am having a facelift yet but I would definitely choose Dr Roark if I do go ahead.Nice touch of having cookies and candies in the waiting room!
I felt well informed and well taken care of byall staff. Dr. Roark is an amazing caring surgeon.I love Dr. Roark!
I absolutely loved my entire experience. From the moment I called on the phone and talked to Nicoleta . She made me feel comfortable and was very outgoing . When I came into the office it was no different! The entire staff treated me wonderfully. I would highly recommend Dr. Roark for any woman wanting breast augmentation. Mine turned out better than I had ever thought . Dr. Roark listened to everything i wanted and also taught me a lot about the entire procedure. I had no doubt or worry on my mind when going into surgery, I knew I could completely trust Dr. Roark and his staff!! Hands down an amazing group of people :)
Attention by Dr Roark and staff was great. Results are what I hoped they would be!
[Consultation Review] I was very satisfied with the clinic and all of the staff, I am just not sure I want surgery
[Consultation Review] I was so nervous going in for the pre op consultation that I was going to say that I had changed my mind and not for through surgery. However, when talking to the nurse and sharing her experience with her procedure made me feel better. She answered my questions and made severL good suggestions. Sarah also came by to say hello and I shared with her my nervousness. They both made me feel better about the procedure and being that I had a previous procedure with Dr. Roark, I felt good. Didn't think I would have another procedure, but here I am again!
Saw no results
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roarke has been my surgeon since 2001 when my first plastic surgeon did such a botched job I thought I would never look 'normal'. My first breast augmentation presented with blood clots, I was literally bleeding through my stitches & the doctor could not be bothered to even come off the golf course to deal with me.I than saw Dr. Roarke, he put me on antibiotics and when the problem did not resolve itself, he performed emergency surgery because I had lost so much blood, he got me a room in the hospital with my own nurse, he sat with my mom all night because she was so worried AND he got my insurance to pay for it. He also had the foresight to put in drains so I did not blood clot again.The reason I just saw him is because my last surgery is probably 12 years past the due date of either getting a new augmentation or having them removed. Dr. Roarke not only does the best work I have ever seen but he is such an amazing surgeon that work he performs lasts such a long time that the need for more surgery is lessened immensely.One last thing about Dr. Roarke that I cannot stress enough is his integrity. Many years ago, a friend of mine went to see him because she wanted an abnormally large size of breast implants put in. Dr. Roarke emphatically refused to perform surgery telling her that not only would the size cause her muscle to lift right off her breast bone but that she was an incredibly beautiful girl and she needed to realize that without having more surgery.Dr.Roarke is truly one of a kind and I would travel across the world to see him before I ever let another surgeon touch me.
Dr. Roark and his medical staff went above and beyond my expectations. My breast augmentation and lift turned out better than I expected. Because of their ability to do their jobs in such a highly professional manner, I was completely at ease with my decision to have this surgery done. I absolutely love the results and would recommend Dr. Roark & LJCS to everyone!
Professionalism and attentiveness of all staff, cleanliness and attractiveness of all spaces, availability of appointments
Dr. Roark has the eye of an artist and the skill of a surgeon. His talent amazes me! His exceptional expertise gave me a very natural look. I am complimented on a daily basis about how young I look. Thank you Dr. Roark!! I'll be back.
Dr.Roark was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable with botox. He was also honest in having had it himself, how often and how long, it was not only comforting to know but somehow made me feel automatically connected with him knowing and understanding the purpose of my visit. He is very personable and that is a huge contribution when it comes to easing a patient with any concerns or nervousness they might have. The gal who assisted him was just as much a pleassure to have present as Dr. Roark was! Good people, friendly staff and a lovely facility. The best was, everyone there was friendly, which is not often the case when entering higher end offices like such. I wont lie, of course I wish it wasnt so expensive to see the doc himself but I sure am glad I did. Plan to see him again with no regets! Thanks Dr. Roark and Staff for the welcoming, friendly enviroment and services!!! Theresa Corner :-)
I've had this treatment before and was pleased with the results. I want to keep up with it when I notice the lines appearing once again. It beats surgery :-)
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and Sarah, his nurse really listened to me and what I wanted. Sarah was also super helpful with my 8 month old son during the consultation. They both made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions and concerns.
Dr. Roark has a wonderful bedside manner, is extremely profession and the information he provided was both informative and educational. I would not go anywhere else! The staff is also very professional and friendly. They went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and an a quality experience.
The fillers I had worked perfectly and Dr. Roark is wonderful
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark explain how he would be performing the surgery, what areas and such. Recovery and incision too.
I think Dr. Roark and his staff do an amazing job. I'm very please and satisfied with the outcome of my breast implants and lift. Everyone makes you feel very important and took all of my questions very serious. I live 4 hours from the office and they worked with my schedule. Iwould definitely come back and get more done. I have already recommended Dt. Roark and LA Jolla Cosmetics
Dr. Roark is amazing. Very nice and considerate. He was very informative about my procedure.
I have been a client of the office for a few years, everyone is so friendly knowledgeable it makes you feel like home. I just rave about Dr. Roark and his awesome nurse. I can always count on getting professional services with a smile and with a great sense of humor. I love that place, if I could afford it I would go more often.
My doctor, dr. Roark and his staff are the best. They always take are of my needs
[Consultation Review] From my initial consultation to my post-op appointments every single person at the facility was so comforting and explained everything in detail. I had an amazing experience and a amazing surgery outcome as well.
The surgery that I choose was completely elective and everyone that I had contact with know what was going on. All of the staff and surgery team made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The surgery and post-op has been great, with follow-ups and the end results of the surgery.
[Consultation Review] Full service friendly staff. Felt comfortable and professional.
Dr.Roark is very caring and passionate at what he does! This is my second time doing my surgery with him and he is Amazing!!! He is truely talented!!Thank you Doctor Roark!!
I love Dr. Roark. His professionalism, artistry, foreward thinking and genuine concern for his patients is evident in all he does. I completely respect and trust Dr. Roark, which is why I have continued to be his patient for more than 10 years. His staff also equals all his admirable qualities. I feel like I am amongst family when I have the pleasure to be in the office. THANK YOU Dr. Roark for your years of kindness, support, true care and most of all the new life you have given me!!!
My wife would never see anpother doctor.
[Consultation Review] I liked the Dr. He spent plenty of time with me and, answered all my questions.
Dr. Roark and the staff are so warm, welcoming and caring, I flew from across the Country just to see Dr. Roark. He is so awesome, he took time to listen to my concerns and expectations. He is also Professional and a friendly Dr. I recommend anyone planning on any kind of procedure to contact him.
The doctor and the staff were both friendly and professional. Also a nice environment.
The receptionist was pleasant and attended to me promptly. Dr. Roarke and his assistant were caring, concerned, and attentive. Both of them discussed my questions about a future procedure and were responsive. When I went to pay for my procedure, the receptionist took the time to find my prior history so I could receive a reduced amount for the procedure. I couldn't be happier with the facility and the staff there and wouldn't go anywhere else for my cosmetic surgery needs.
The pricing could have been better.
[Consultation Review] All staff were very informative, helpful and direct. I felt no pressure to do something and I received another referral to further investigate my options.
having known dr. roark for many years, seeing his excellent results on family and friends made is an easy decsion to choose his expertise. dr. roark is a caring, professional, exceptional plastic surgeon. there was never a time of worry or concern thoughout the entire process.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was very friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease. My questions were answered thoroughly about the procedure I was interested in and the steps to having the procedure performed were explained to me at the consultation.
Dr. Roark was very attentive throughout the whole process. He listened to my needs and made sure I was comfortable with my decision. I had a very last minute panic on the size of my implants the morning of surgery and he really calmed me down. I placed all my trust in his recommendation and am pleased with the final outcome! My breast are perfect, the size is proportionate to my small frame and they are just the right size for me.
Everyone was professional and put you at ease about your procedure.Even before I made my decision I felt no pressure After my procedure I was called to make sure everything was going as planned.They made you feel like a family member.
[Consultation Review] This was my first appt. for cosmetic surgery and I was pleased with the explanations, demonstration on the face of previous patients on what had been done, and on the details of the proposal.
Even though I am not supposed to notice maximum results until I am 6 months post procedure and I am about halfway there, I can see a difference. Haven't had any feedback yet from anyone that didn't know I had the procedure. So happy Dr. Roarke was my doctor. He is a very caring man!
Efficient and loved the results... also, the doctor and staff were excellent in explaining services.
Dr Roark and his staff were amazing from start to finish. However the person who I was amazed by was Sarah McCabe. She went so far above and beyond at all aspects of care. She answered all questions and made me feel super confidant about all aspects of my surgery.
[Consultation Review] Friendly people
With Dr Roarke I have always been highly satisfied I have been going to him for many many years and this is why I continue to come to him. He is professional and easy to talk to and explains what he's going to do and the results are always The best Dr Roarke has been recommended by me too many of my friends thank you for all the great service and the staffhas been very professional and kind I will keep coming back thank you
The expertise of Dr. Roark
[Consultation Review] Just felt a high degree of caring by everyone at the practice. Everybody was really involved.
Dr. Roark has been my surgeon for two procedures, breast augmentation and eye-lift surgery. My results have been just what I'd hoped for! He is an artist" and counseled me on what size implant would be best for my body as well as a skilled surgeon. In addition to his expertise, I so very much appreciated his calm and supportive manner throughout the pre-op and post-op visits. "
Everyone, regardless of their status or job, was professional, courteous, qualified, took all the time I needed for all discussions/concerns/questions/ appointments. I was provided with all the supplies & needed (bras, steri strips, gauze) in large quantities. They called me by name & I felt more than just a patient. I was not pushed into the surgery or making any decisions - they were my decisions, with their professional input and suggestions. Dr. Roark would not perform my surgery until I lost weight & my overall health improved. He encouraged me to take 3 months for this, which I did, and my surgery and post-op. recuperation went excellent. Dr. said my overall health was the most important factor.
Everyone at this facility was professional, efficient and friendly. Dr. Roark did an excellent job, as did his staff.
Dr. Roark always does a great job and makes me feel comfortable. thankyou!
[Consultation Review] The RN and Dr. were professional and informative. The ease with the explanation of the proceedure confirmed my friends satisfaction with her experience.
[Consultation Review] I wasn't satisfied with my question about lifting my brows & how he was planning to do it??? Had been told bfe, that I wasn't a candidate for this procedure and I would like to know way he believes I am???Also, this is my 3rd time to get a consult for this procedure @ this center which was maybe 2 and 4 yrs ago and the price has gone from $4500.. to $7500 to the latest of $15,000.
Dr. Roark and the entrire staff were thoroughly professional, caring,and skilled.The atmosphere of LJCSC is warm, friendly, and comfortable.The credentials of all the professionals are impeccable.The reputation of the Centre is excellent, and everyone working there enjoys their work, which gives a patient confidence in proceeding with a chosen procedure.
Everything that has been done for me at this facility has been amazing. I wish I had done all of it ten years ago. It has raised my self esteem and I feel very different about myself today! I highly recommend Dr Roark and everyone at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre.
Everyone here from the moment you walk into the office until you leave act in a professional and friendly manner. Also, Dr. Roark took the time to make sure I was healing properly and when I wasn't acting my best (it can be an emotional roller coaster ride) everyone still treated me kindly the next time they saw me.
[Consultation Review] This is my secondy surgery withh this office. I couldnt imagine anyone else operating on me. I adore Dr.Roark and his staff!
[Consultation Review] I liked the doctor very much and I thought he would do a good job with the procedure and I would be satisfied with the facelift.
I felt like all of my requests were met to the best of the doctor and coordinators ability.
I am very happy with my new implants!
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark was friendly, professional explain the procedure to me.He touch the area were he will preforming surgery procedures. He answered all questions without hesitation. I went to visit other doctors but I didn't get the same feelings as I had with Dr Roark at all.
I was highly satisfied with my experience because the staff, nurses, doctor and Anesthesiologist were extremely friendly, professional and made me feel comfortable from the start of my surgery through the recovery. I normally would never think of having cosmetic surgery of any kind but I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. I thought I would have so much anxiety that I would have cancelled. I felt no anxiety even going into surgery. Wish I would have had the procedure done 5 years ago.
Dr. Roark is a very caring and sensitive surgeon who has an exquisite eye for esthetics and symmetry. He instilles complete confidence from the very first consultation. He did a beautiful job on my face lift, neck lift and eyelid surgery. I live in Palm Desert, CA and willingly drove 2.5 hours one-way for each of my appointments because of the absolute comfort level I felt with Dr. Roark's abilities and my happiness with my results. I would willingly come back to Dr. Roark for any future procedures and without question recommend him to my friends. Thank you Dr. Roark- you are the best!!
[Consultation Review] I felt very comfortable with everyone. The doctor instilled a sense of confidence. He also told me nearly exactly what I expected. I didn't feel at all pressured or up-sold. Everything felt top notch and reliable. The before and after pictures of women who had similar procedures made me feel extremely confident about what I could expect from my procedure. Everything was great. Dr. Roarke was really nice.
Everything about this experience was positive. I am an hypnotherapist and one of the nurses (at my request) read to my subconscious while I was out.", which made my recovery and healing that much more satisfactory. It was a great experience. I can t wait to get my boobs lifted !
Dr Roarke answered all of my questions and he also made me feel very comfortable. He spent more time with me answering my questions than any doctor I've ever dealt with. He also did an amazing job!
I loved this office and my experience here with my surgeon as well as all the staff
From the beginning consultation to the actual surgery was so easy and fluid. I was nervous, but I felt very informed about what was going to happen. There were no surprises. I was taken care of VERY well. Thank you!
The surgeon was highly skilled and knowledgable in his area of practice. The staff was friendly and supportive.
Dr. Roark and his staff have been consistently friendly and very professional. The office is run with efficiency and the staff ensures that the patients are comfortable and well attended. I have had several procedures done and have always been well informed and well taken care of. My indication of dissatisfaction with my most recent procedure was simply because I didn't feel it was as effective as the cost warranted.
[Consultation Review] I really liked the professionalism of this office, Dr. Roark and his staff. I will definitely be getting my procedure done here by Dr. Roark.
Staff was very organized, responsive and answered all questions. Excellent follow-up. Good results
Dr Roark and his entire staff were kind, efficent, helpful and exceptionally accomodating throughout the entire experience. My actual procedure has also given me a fabulous new outlook!
From beginning to end my experience was wonderful. Excellent doctor and cooperative, qualified staff.I will and have recommended Dr Roark and the A Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center.
Every person I encountered was friendly and helpful. Dr. Roark made me feel extremely comfortable, he answered all of my questions and ended up giving me amazing results.
Dr Roark made me feel very relaxed and I felt that I could trust him every step of the way. He explained in great detail what he thought was the best approach and answered all my questions and concerns. The whole staff was very friendly and kept in contact! It was a great experience and I felt safe in their hands.
Dr. Roark was more than professional and the results are amazing.
[Consultation Review] I recommended the practice many times in the past, but the other coordinators were more helpful and better with follow up. I didn't feel that the coordinator was helpful so I prob won't refer my friends anymore.
Dr Roark was excellent through out the entire procedure. Made me feel very comfortable. And I was very satisfied sigh his work
[Consultation Review] Staff was exceptionally nice. All questions were answered immediately . My personal existing medical issues were carefully considered . Anytime I called with a question someone got right back to me. Again......everyone was exceptionally nice
[Consultation Review] Very professional and yet friendly.
[Consultation Review] Md seems interested in me as a person and expressed a positive attitude towards working with me.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roarke was very personable and easy to talk to. I went to LJCS Center before for another procedure. All of the physicians there are very skilled and qualififed. Felt at east.
From my initial contact with the young lady at the reception, my coordinator, clinical staff & Dr. Roark, was very positive. In continuing appointments, EVERYONE is available for any question I had. I was treated with kindness, empathy, care & all my questions were answered. The entire staff becomes your family. I am so happy that I chose La Jolla Surgical Center & Dr. Roake. Thank you for being such a great team!
[Consultation Review] Everyone was wonderful! I'm very young, but there was no judgement & they were very understanding & supportive. I really can't wait to have my procedure done in the following months!!
Everyone was very professional and informative about the surgery. They made me feel right home!
[Consultation Review] Satisfied for all reasons mentioned in above survey. Only waiting on another consultation next week before making decision.
[Consultation Review] Everyone made me feel comfortable, pretty and confident with my decision. The office was beautiful, well kept, and a tower of sweets doesn't hurt.
The results were every thing I wished for. There were no complications or problems. Everyone who took care of me was competent and kind.
Dr roark was wonderful he took his time w making sure i understood what i wanted
I felt very comfortable making my decision to have eye lid surgery. My Doctor was honest with what to expect, my Doctor spent a lot of time with me. Prior to my surgery staff went over what to expect, I had a appointment to come in to see my Doctor the following morning after surgery. My doctor was available as well as his nurses to see me, I felt at anytime, which was very important and comforting. I will return myself in the future and have already recommended my Doctor to friends.
The staff was very professional and friendly. The waiting room was warm and cozy and the doctor was very personable and explained everything I asked him. His nurse was also very personable. The whole experience was wonderful and very professional including meeting the surgical staff before surgery. The booklet they sent me answering any question imaginable was so very helpful before and after the surgery. This is my 3rd face lift at this center and I was pleased with every one of them. Two of them involved a neck lift which came out awesome. I would never go anywhere else.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his staff are outstanding! Best experience! Could not give a higher recommendation, he's the BEST!
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark made me feel important and attractive. Spent as much time as I needed. His quote was significantly higher than another SD facial plastic surgeon I consulted. He proposed a brow lift which the other dr. said was not common these days. Other surgeon recommended an eyelid lift. Dr Roark recommended a platysmaplasty and the other surgeon didn't. Uncertain about the difference in outcome. Tempted to see if results can be achieved with liposuction and tight bandage.
[Consultation Review] Dr Roark is very proffessional and always makes me feel very comfortable. Janelle is amazing and always expalins everything thoroughly.
[Consultation Review] Surgery is scheduled for 11/14. My wife had surgery with Dr. Roark, so we weren't planning to go anywhere else. Everyone at LJCSC is always attentiveto any needs we may have and are always helpful. Dr. Roark is amazing...we wouldn't choose another surgeon.
Dr. Rourke and staff were so friendly, i felt like ive known them for years.. loved this place and i will come back to get more surgeries in the future
[Consultation Review] This experience was very stress free and informative. I felt the staff all worked well together. I left feeling excited and that all my questions were answered
After visiting numerous surgeons and trying to decide where to get my surgery i came across with dr roark my friend had recomend him after going to the consultation i knew i wanted him to be my surgeon. He listened to every concern and question i had. I loved how the staff took the time to listen to me as well. I loved my final results.
[Consultation Review] I absolutely love Dr. Roark and Sarah. They made me feel like family and I felt they genuinely were concerned about my procedure and outcome. I felt that Dr Roark takes great pride and artistry in his work, and I felt confident that I was in exactly the right hands.Yvette Foster was a great first smiling face to see when coming into the clinic for the procedure and post appointments. LJCSC is lucky to have her on staff.I will definitely have Dr Roark perform any future surgeries and will highly refer him to my friends and family.
[Consultation Review] Hope to schedule procedure in Jan of 2014. Loved Jan and Dr Roark.
[Consultation Review] I was highly satisfied due to the friendly staff, they were welcoming and knowledgable. The surgeon was very honest and straight forward and made me feel comfortable. The whole experience was a good one.
Dr. Roark was the 4th Dr. that I consulted with and the one I was most comfortable with its a trust factor with me and I really felt that with Dr. Roark.He was completely honest I know he had my best interest at heart.As for his staff? WONDERFUL!!! ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!I MISS THEM ALL!!!
[Consultation Review] The consultation was very informative regarding the procedure itself. Dr. Roark was clear about all the information and made my husband and I very comfortable during the consultation. With the information and comfort level with the doctor, we booked our surgery that same day.
[Consultation Review] Repeat client, great service, great staff, have recommended my friends
[Consultation Review] The staff and doctors are informative and seem to know what they're doing.
[Consultation Review] As a former patient of Dr. Olesen, and having a long association with the practice, La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre remains my 'go-to-place' for cosmetic procedures. Dr. Roark is a gentleman and a sweetheart and I would have no reservations about utilizing him as my surgeon. And while I know I could benefit from the surgery, I do have concerns about my ability to heal properly at this stage of my life. The timing (Oct.) did not seem to be right for me after giving it much thought. Perhaps, six months from now, I will see my way clear to make a definitive decision.
Every staff person was very professional, from the front office, to each nurse that assisted Dr. Roark. Dr. Roark is extremely calm, caring, and efficient. I have recommended your office to several friends. I'm very happy with my results and feel I can call at any time with minor questions. Thank you for a great experience.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and all the employees at LCSC were amazing from start to finish. Always polite and professional. I knew that I was not going to be able to find a better surgeon for myself after the firs time I met Dr. Roark. He made me feel comfortable and I trusted his recommendations. He never made me feel like a bother even post op when I was worrying about things that were normal. I would highly recommend Dr. Roark and LCSC to anyone! I am so thankful I found them!
[Consultation Review] everyone was amazing, friendly, helpfull. made me feel like family. i am very satisfied with my results and will be back for more procedures and give everyone i know the best reviews and highly recommend this place.
I had a wonderful experience with La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre and Dr. Roark!!! Dr. Roark is truly the best at what he does! All of his staff were wonderful and helped me through the entire process. They were all great at putting me at ease and answering all my questions. On my surgery day everyone was so nice and made me feel super comfortable. I had an easy experience and best of all I love, love, love my results!! I am definitely recommending Dr. Roark to all my friends and family. He is very knowledgable and experienced and has an awesome bed side manner. He was amazing when it came to explaining the process and he genuinely cares about his patients. I am very happy I picked Dr. Roark and LJCSC for my breast augmentation. It's the best thing I've ever done for myself!!!
Careful explanations of what to do and what to expect. Excellent care by all staff. Anesthesiologist was very attentive and relieved my anxiety and listened to my previous problems with anesthesia.....made sure they did not happen. After visits were appropriately timed, all care taken to ensure my comfort. Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Roark and his staff. Everyone says my results are amazing!!!! I am sending him at least two of my friends for consults.
[Consultation Review] All the staff including the surgon were very helpful, comforting. i would recomend anyone to this office.
[Consultation Review] According to the Internet prices on your website the original quote with discount by patient coordinator was way over-priced. I realized this after coming home and perusing your website and finding prices on there. After calling patient coordinator and explaining how I felt about the fee, it was reduced to a more fair price which was in tune with what I read on your website. Both times I e-mailed the patient coordinator regarding a more fair price and sending me a new fee schedule she never responded. I had to call her both times. Because of this neglect, I felt very unimportant. She has since appologized after my calling her out on this the second time.
I am incredibly grateful to the cosmetic surgery team. My surgery went well and all the staff was very helpful. I will continue to refer friends and family to this location. I am very happy with the results.
I went mainly because of my double chin, and my eyelids drooping. Immediately after surgery I noticed that it still looked like I had a double chin. I blamed it on swelling. Well, it's been nearly a year, and I still have a double chin. I no doubt will have to have another surgery to get it pulled up tight. Maybe it just wasn't liposuctioned. All I know is that I still have a double chin. Less, but double. Also, I feel I succumbed to temple surgery to lift my eye lids, that absolutely did nothing, but cause scarring and pain, and I still need eyelid surgery. I have put off saying anything because I really like Dr. Roark. He's got a kind heart, and a gentle spirit, but it put me in debt for a facelift that could have been so much better, and that I will have to do again, soon.
I was very satisfied. Perhaps my expectations about how I would look after weren't fully realistic, and that has taken some adjustment.
Dr. Roark is an excellent surgeon. He is compassionate and understanding. He takes time to address questions and concerns. He is an artist extraordinaire. Additionally, his office staff and nurses are professional, friendly and patient.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark has the amazing ability of instantly making you feel comfortable and safe in his hands. I had Tummy Tuck surgery by him many years ago and when I returned for this consultation after all this time he made me feel like we were old friends reuniting! I had fun and felt so nurtured and safe in his office. My original tummy tuck procedure was one of the best decisions of my life. To this day I am grateful to Dr. Roark for the incredible job he did. My decision is made after this positive consultation. I will be scheduling my surgery as soon as I can work out the financial piece. I am so happy that I returned to Dr. Roark because I know this if where I intend on getting my facelift and tummy lipo! I visited other offices for information and I felt rushed and pressured and unimportant. The nurse and office manager were sweet and also very assuring and helpful! I had lots of followup calls and emails without one ounce of pressure!LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
[Consultation Review] My husband & I were treated like old friends by Dr. Roake & his staff. Dr. Roake quickly put me at ease & was truly interested with my concerns & explained the procedure. Most important, he answered all of my husband's questions & concerns too. We also met with Janelle Robinson. She also was informative, kind & answered all our questions with straight forward information. Thank you!
[Consultation Review] The whole experience was amazing, I was nervous at first but the staff were so friendly and helpful. The office was so clean and professional too! Dr. Roark was so nice and answered all my questions- he was informative and experienced in the procedure, and went into detail about all the questions and concerns I had. The RN and the patient care coordinator were both so nice and made me feel comfortable and also answered all my questions. Amazing experience and I am so excited for my procedure!
[Consultation Review] I felt like they truly listened to my concerns and were able to answer my questions. I am a repeat customer, so I know the care they take during and after surgery.
Great experience and easy recovery. Everyone at the office was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process.
[Consultation Review] The doctor had all the right qualifications, had done the procedure many times, was located next to hospital and was very accessible and straightforward in conversation. I also had friends that had the same procedure done by this doctor and were highly satisfied by the result. The pricing was also favorable when compared to others. Very highly competent with reasonable prices and availabilty.
[Consultation Review] I thought that Dr. Roark's approach was very realistic . He understood what i am looking for and explained according to that. The nurse and patient coordinator were outstanding in their detail and helpfulness. I will definitely schedule - just need to work out the timing for me.
[Consultation Review] I appreciated the surgeon's frankness concerning what could be done, and how much improvement could be accomplished, as well as recovery time after the procedure.
[Consultation Review] The surgeon made me feel extremely comfortable. He truly listened to me and my concerns, he gave his opinions but without pressuring me to see his way". He had a wonderful demeanor, his knowledge and expertise came through without being pushy or overbearing. I thought I should get a second opinion but I really feel like this surgeon is the best and there is no need to. "
Dr. Roarke and the rest of the staff were extremely professional and courteous during each if my visits and for the other procedures he has performed on me. The information given to me was accurate and insightful. The cost was worth his expertise and the silts have been amazing each time he has performed a procedure and during follow up exams.Stuart Young MD is the best anesthesiologist ever and is extremely flexible in dealing with my needs (phobias) where I could feel relaxed each time a surgical procedure was performed. I couldn't imagine having surgery without him as my anesthesiologist.Dr. Roarke has gone out of his way in accommodating both myself and my husband. We appreciate his skill, expertise, advice, and overall friendliness. I wouldn't even consider having any type of plastic surgery elsewhere.
Dr. Roark, Sarah and staff were extremely comforting, courteous, respectful and made feel and know I chose the right team to help me meet my goals. I love the care and attention to detail Dr. Roark has always shown me. I was thrilled that he returned from retirement and couldn't wait until my second round of surgery with him. He is truly gifted and I wouldn't trust anyone else.
Dr. Roark has a wonderful bedside" manner. From the moment I met him and one of the nurses (Sarah Celeste), I felt at ease and knew I was in the right place for my surgery. I really believe that Dr. Roark heard everything I was trying to communicate."
[Consultation Review] The doctor and staff are courteous, yet warm and friendly. There was hardly any wait time. The waiting area is comfortable and refreshments are provided. Dr. Roark is very likable and also painstaking in his exam.
Surgeon and nurses were very friendly and made me feel comfortable. They answered all te questions I had. When I called the office to ask questions the nurse was always there to give me some answers.
Even before I visited the office the patient coordinator was very attentive to the information on what procedures I wanted to accomplish. Also wanted to give me a good time to visit office and what to expect from initial visit, when I did visit was pleasant setting as staff at the facility welcomed me with a smile and helpful information as soon as my name was called for the Surgeon patient visit was like cut to the chase and straight to the point no mularky, wanted to know my history and why I wanted to have my procedures done he never sugar coated anything that is why I chose him, I was very satisfied and looked no further on my searches after visit I was eager to speak to the surgical coordinator to make my dream a reality, wont lie hit I a few road blocks on credit scores but coordinator helped me immensely to get through these minor difficulties as getting me a surgery date, probably one of the most happiest days of my life thanks to the whole staff for me gets an A+ ,if you don't believe me than go in for a visit and find out for yourself, Thank you so so much am so happy with my results and the next chapter of my life, my dreams came true:-)))
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his staff were OUTSTANDING! I was extremely cautious going in for my consultation and they immediately put me and my husband at ease. He has a fabulous bedside manner and was so understanding, informative and genuinely nice. It was a great experience. I only wish my work schedule could accommodate the procedure sooner! I be in there tomorrow!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark was awesome, he took the time to answer all my questions about the procedure. He throughly explained the procedure and went over all the details. During my consultation I asked him to take a look at another issue I had and he took the time to answer all my questions regarding that as well. In addition, his nurse Sarah and the patient coordinator Janelle were super helpful and they all made me feel super comfortable during the whole time I was there. I felt right at home! I already scheduled my surgery for Dr. Roark- can't wait!!
[Consultation Review] Everyone kind and welcoming. Made me very comfortable. Dr. never made me feel rushed, spent a lot of time talking with me.
The staff was well qualified, honest, friendly, and considerate. The price is low for the top quality procedures they provide.
[Consultation Review] Efforts were taken to make me feel comfortable while a thorough evaluation and plan were discussed at length.
Every person I met was friendly, attentive and patient with me. Dr. Roark was very personable, friendly and humorous so I felt at ease throughout the whole process. Also, I am very pleased with the results of my surgery. I will definitely recommend your office and Dr. Roark to all who are interested in cosmetic surgery. Thank you All!
[Consultation Review] I felt that all my questions were answered. I felt that Dr. Roark took his time explaining the procedure. The nurses and coordinator were friendly and caring.
I am a medical malpractice attorney and thus have extensive experience dealing with expert physicans and surgeons, both locally and nationally. With this background, I can confidently conclude that Dr. Roark is exceptional at his craft. He is kind, caring, attentive and an overall outstanding surgeon. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend his services to any potential plastic surgery candidate. Likewise, his nurse, Sarah, embodies Dr. Roark's commitment to provide exceptional care and treatment. She is an absolute gem. Together, they provide the highest caliber of plastic surgery services to their patients.
dr. Roark was fantastic and i really love his interaction with me. His staff is wonderful as well. I will definitely use him again for any future needs.Thanks
everyone was so nice,surgery went perfect,basically pain free with a great result
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his team make you feel extremely comfortable and everyone is so attentive to your needs - down to even asking if you would like a glass of water. Not all places do that. They have no problems assisting in taking personal photos for you to take home and look at the before and what the afters would be.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark was awesome. Loved his personality and his on-line reviews. Only down side was cost.
[Consultation Review] Everything and everyone met my every expectation.
[Consultation Review] Made very comfortable by nurse and both surgeons and did not feel rushed or pressured.
[Consultation Review] The nurse has been extremely proactive in checking in with me practically everyday leading up to the surgery. She seems to be very sincere and caring and ready to answer any questions I might have. She has returned my phone calls almost immediately when I've called.
I have seen Dr. Roark, in the past. I cannot say enough good about him. I refer my family and friends to him.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark took time to address my concerns and questions. Staff are always warm, friendly. Good information given.
[Consultation Review] i have already used this office many times and sent many people there,never any problems or complaints,great service,great staff
Everyone at LJCSC was friendly and helpful along every step of the way. Dr. Roark really listened to what I wanted and helped me understand things about the procedure that I wasn't well informed on.
[Consultation Review] I did ultimately schedule and have the procedure I sought from this surgeon/office. Excellent care and beside manner from doctor and all staff. Provided the level of information I needed and gave frank and realistic feedback. Felt like my satisfaction and result were important to them
[Consultation Review] glossing over bruising, swelling is NOT satisfactory; too much focus on the results without being more open about the path/time to get there!more about the sale/final results without a real honest view of the time in recovery is not satisfactory.
[Consultation Review] The results and experiences of a close friend who recently had the procedure was the biggest reason I traveled 4 hours to visit the doctor. It would be much easier to use a local practice, but this is such an important decision that I want to be extremely careful in my choice of surgeon and anesthesiologist. They have my life in their hands. The biggest concerns I have are about the risks, not the substantial financial cost. Will I look natural, will I wake up, will their be any long term side-effects with muscles, inflamation or nerve damage and pain? The only way for me to guage or evaluate Dr. Roarkes skills and expertise was to meet him and his staff and to see the results of a recent patient in person-not just photographs, and hear about her experience and high level of satisfaction.
My experience met and exceeded my expectations.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark is very qulified, gives you a since he cares, all the people around him take care of business and you.
[Consultation Review] I am not a person given to superlatives, but my consult with Dr Roark was really stellar. They made a great effort to make me feel comfortable and 'heard'. I have consulted another local plastic surgeon in relation to the procedure I am considering and the contrast in the consultations was pretty stark.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and his staff is heaven sent!!! Everything about the experience was highly professional. I would never concider going any other place. The comfort/trust level that I have with Dr. Roark is remarkable. I am so blessed to have him as my surgeon.
Dr. Roark and his staff are so kind and friendly!
[Consultation Review] I cannot say enough about Dr. Roark. He and his staff are kind, and helpful.
overall the doctor, the faclity and the staff were all wonderfull
Dr. Roark and his staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. They put me at ease before and after surgery. They were able to answer all of my questions right away. Everything about this procedure has been a pleasure.
I felt that Dr.Roark was genuinely interested in how I felt before and after the procedure. All the staff were so warm and welcoming on all the visits. I'm so extremely happy about my results, and Dr. Roark did a wonderful job. His nurse Sara was so sweet and pleasant.
attention to detail. with literature, during pre and post operative meetings.Dr. Roark is not only professional in his surgery, but in all the pre and post operative meetings.to quote a famous someone 'Dr. Roark is the kind of person who is not just professional, he is the kind of 'guy' you would enjoy having a glass of wine with' (of course with some fine chocolate)
[Consultation Review] From scheduling my appointment to sitting down to discuss the cost, everyone was very helpful and answered all my questions. The whole staff couldn't have been nicer. Dr. Roark was amazing and his bedside manner was a step above the best. He made me confident in his knowledge and comfortable that when I am ready to get my procedure done that I will be extremely pleased. Overall they are a wonderful team.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and every member of the staff all seem genuinely interested in my particular situation and concerns and are very good about explaining things as many times as it takes. I especially appreciated the pre-surgical visit with the nurse where I was able to have all my questions answered. I really feel very comfortable in the office.
Everyone at LCSC was so nice and caring from the girls at the front desk to all the nurses and doctors everyone made my experience amazing. I felt important and cared about from start to finish. I would 100\% recommend LCSC and Dr Roark to friends and family!
[Consultation Review] I have used this practice before. I enjoy the people who work at the office. Everyone is very friendly and make you feel comfortable. I will continue to go to this office and use Dr. Roark. I always tell my friends and family about this office. I feel safe and know I am getting the best attention and care from Dr. Roark.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark, Sarah, and Breanna, as well as all of the other staff I encountered in the office genuinely cared about me and my comfort. Dr. Roark's sense of humor and gentle demeanor really put me at ease.
[Consultation Review] The entire staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions I had. Dr. Roark is great. He was very confident that he could revise a procedure I previously had by another surgeon and make me completely happy with my results. He made me feel very comfortable during the appointment and he was very pleasant. I am glad I had a consultation with Dr. Roark.
[Consultation Review] I have been considering having a breast augmentation for a number of years. I have friends who have gone through this procedure and they were happy with their results. One friend of mine actually had her procedure done at the same facility but with a different surgeon. I was very comfortable after reading over the Doctor's bio on the Centre's website and after the initial consultation the only nerves I had were what I would feel like post surgery. Overall, my experience with this entire process has been very pleasant and a number of my friends want my doctor's information so they can have their breast augmentation done by the same surgeon.
everything went well
Love Dr. Rouke. Very personable. Everyone was so helpful.
Everything was perfect in my eyes and the entire staff is amazing
I felt everyone was extremely attentive, sensitive and caring. Dr. Roark was very welcoming, professional and personal which made the process less stressful for me. Whether I was in the office or at home I felt that the staff took time and enerfy to make certain I was informed and comfortable, which in my opinion is a rarity in the healthcare industry right now. I did not feel like a burden, but like a person and I really appreciated that. I really liked his staff and will definitely return if I choose to look into another procedure.
I have known Dr. Roark for many years & know him to be a very experienced & caring doctor. He listens to his patients & makes them feel very well cared for. I've been around many doctors & this is a very rare gift that he has. That, combined with his skills as a surgeon, convince me he is one of the best doctors around.
I wasn't really sure what kind of procedure I needed to improve overall" appearance of my eyes. I explained this to the doctor. One of my problems was sagging eye lids, but I also have puffy eyes below my eyebrows. I ended up having eyelift surgery thinking that procedure would fix everything. I had surgery March 2012. I live on the East coast & had procedure done while I was in Ca. I returned to Ca in July & went to see the doctor explaining my unhappiness that the eyelift surgery had not done all that I was expecting to happen. No one has even noticed that I had anything done which further upsets me after having spent over $3000.00. Doctor said I would need another surgery to get complete result I wanted. I should have been told this at 1st consultation."
- Loved the staff!! Friendly and knowledgeable. Great office decor/vibe. - The reading materials and verbal explanations were very helpful and easy to understand. - Realistic expectations were set. - Everything went very smooth. Very organized and well coordinated. Great experience. Not a single complaint.
Every single person I interacted with at this facility was friendly, informative, and a pleasure to speak with. The surgeon and his surgical staff were all very knowledgable, took my questions and concerns seriously, put me at ease, and did a wonderful job. I have trust in each person at that site and I am so pleased with the result of my surgery.
Would rather not say
Couldn't have asked for anything to go more smoothly. The entire staff was so welcoming and made sure I was comfortable.
Dr. Roarke and all the staff at LCSC made me feel comfortable from my initial consultation all the way through the followup visits I made. Everything was carefully explained and I was not pushed into my decision to have the surgery done. I would definitely recommend Dr. Roarke's services to any one interested in having cosmetic surgery.
He was very patience with me. He listen to what I wanted my body to look like and he put his skills to work to make me look that way. For that I want to say thank you Dr. Roark.
[Consultation Review] This office, including all staff from the nurses to the desk receptionists to the photographer to the surgeon, couldn't have been more professional, kind, and well informed. This is a highly personal decision, and they treated me with the utmost respect, courtesy and confidentiality. I wondered exactly how they would manage to make a plastic surgery patient feel since it seems like such an awkward conversation for someone new to this subject. However, the team at LJCSC all seemed to exhibit the perfect attitude of caring, yet casual friendliness, along with a whole lot of knowledge and professional advice. I can't say enough about this medical group, I won't be going to anyone else for my needs!
[Consultation Review] Everybody was very friendly and helpful and made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Roark was the third surgeon I consulted regarding a breast lift and augmentation. Upon meeting Dr. Roark, there was no doubt that he was the one to perform my surgery. He took his time during the consultation, listened to and understood what I wanted to achieve through surgery, and explained how he could make my desired results a reality. Dr. Roark and the staff at LCSC put me at ease and not once was I nervous about the surgery nor did I ever second guess my decision to have the surgery. The results of my surgery are amazing, and I could not be happier.
I felt very welcomed and the staff was marvelous the entire time. I always got my questions answered and even when I did not understand, when I called, staff members were always so gracious to inform me!
[Consultation Review] the installationsurgeon's attentionthe attention of staffThe surgeon I feel it is very good
Michael Roark has preformed 2 surgeries for me prior to my laser surgery. I have the utmost trust in him and value his ability to improve your look without making you look fake. I have recommended him to several family members and friends.
[Consultation Review] This practice consistently provides the highest level of professionalism and customer focus throughout the entire process. I interviewed 6 Surgeons and facilities prior to my first procedure, and non compare with La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Roarke's work and would not consider any other Dr. for facial surgery.
[Consultation Review] I have been with and followed Michael Roarke for procedures for the last 20 years. He is unbelievably caring and professional and highly skilled at his profession. I value my relationship with him and appreciate all others who work at LCSC. Thank you for all you do in creating a very comfortable environment.
[Consultation Review] I waited quite some time -nearly an hour before consult. I like Dr Roark very much but didn't feel that the rest of the staff was any more friendly than any other place.
Everything was great everybody is very friendly I just wish I had chosen bigger size breast
[Consultation Review] All people involved are professional, friendly and caring. I especially value my relationship with Dr. Michael Roarke.
[Consultation Review] LJCS did everything possible to make feel comfortable, educated, and satisfied with my decision to have breast augmentation. Will definitely refer them to any friends or family considering cosmetic procedures.
The professional aspect of the office was amazing! the efficiency of the preop booklet, to covering the booklet at the preop visit, to the follow up with my nurse before and after surgery was above anything I ever expected!Would definitly recommend the office
[Consultation Review] The procedures were explained in detail, the recovery time was explained, Dr Roark took his time with me, which I appreciated. I will have the procedures done, but am having back surgery first, then possible in 2013, I can consider my face again.
[Consultation Review] Because Dr Roark and his staff were soft spoken, personal and in no way attempted to persuade any decision I had premeditately arrived to them with. Very complimentive of my body, emotions and needs.
For me it was either make or break. I went in there decided to get the surgery within a week from my initial consultation before I backed out and they were able to accommodate that for me. It was fast, painless, and awesome! The surgery team were so friendly. The surgery itself was a success i'd say, i was only down for about 2 days and back on my feet with minor soreness. I am a happy patient!
Every single member of the staff was down-to-earth and honest. No one pressured me into anything and everyone was so encouraging of my situation. I felt at home there. Dr. Roark was professional and very knowledgable without being patronizing or condescending. He was a pleasure to talk to and did an amazing job on my Breast Augmentation. I will always go back to LJCSC and see Dr. Roark for any other procedure I may choose to have in the future. Overall, the experience was amazing.
[Consultation Review] I had visited 4 other surgeons and felt that Dr. Roark did a great job of explaining details of the procedure and personalizing his comments to my specific situation which was a little more complicated. I also wanted to accomplish my goals for the end result without having to do a full tummy tuck which involves more recovery and more scarring. The other doctors told me that I should opt for the full TT even though I didn't have much excess skin or fat. In addition Dr. Roark really seems to love what he does which is also important to me. When he was not in the room, both the nurse and the coordinator talked about how much they loved working with him. Finally, my husband is a technical engineer-type person and he asked several detailed questions which Dr. Roark seemed delighted to address - there was no arrogance or condescension, just genuine feedback delivered in an excited I'm glad you asked" manner."
[Consultation Review] The entire team has been very supportive and comforting. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
[Consultation Review] I had an issue with a drain 2 days after my surgery. I called the answering service since is was the weekend. No one gave the message to the doctor until Sunday morning. He called me immediately. Perhaps they should look into a more reliable service.
The surgeon treated me with respect as well as with a caring, gentle manner. He always seemed happy to see me, which made me feel that he cared.Additionally, my results are wonderful, exactly what I was hoping for.
[Consultation Review] Office & Dr were very professional. I felt 100\% comfortable with the staff and Dr. It is not easy coming in bareing your body and I felt cared for and felt that the Dr. truely understood my concerns and made me feel confident about the future procedure.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark made me feel very comfortable about my personal situation. He did a damn good job with making me look amazing. I will always be grateful to him for that. He's also a very sweet and understanding man.
My experience with Dr. Michael roack was excellent I am very happy that I have my surgery done with hem. The stuff was great they make me feel very Very comfortable And always very helpful To answer all my questions. Great experience and Most definitely I will go back to have another surgery .. I highly recommend Dr. roack he's amazing thank you all for a great job!!! :)
First, I just want to say thank you and that my breasts look great. The overall experience and work was top notch and extremely professional. I only had one small complaint and it's so small that I don't even know that it's valid and it did not effect my choice in choosing this surgeon. The one thing I would have liked is if the surgeon spent a little more time with me in the pre-op visit making sure he knew my specific wants, needs and concerns and that he would have spent a little more time with me the morning of the surgery making sure I was certain on my decision of the amount of CC's. I think the issue here is that the amazing surgeon, Dr. Roark, has done this countless times. Therefore, he is certainly confident and comfortable. For me it was my first time and I was a bit anxious and nervous. The morning of the surgery I wanted to do my sizing one last time to make sure I was certain. I felt rushed and he wasn't with me for the sizing. In the end, Dr. Roark, put the amount of CC's that looked best and I am happy with the work...very happy. Just saying...please remember for some of us, this is our first surgery and altering our breasts is a huge deal. Thank you for everything!
[Consultation Review] The Doctor and all the staff are very warm and kind and enthusiastic. The energy in the office is very positive. I was immediately comfortable with Dr Roark and the nurses were very informative, thorough, and friendly.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark superfriendly, made me feel very confortable. Staff very attentive and nice.
I have known Michael Roark for over 20 years. He has performed breast augmentation surgery on me, face, brow and neck lift and some fillers and injectables. His knowledge and expertise is superb; I have highly recommended him to several friends and acquaintances. I have been extremely satisfied with all procedures performed by Dr. Roark. I will continue to seek out care from him for as long as he is practicing
[Consultation Review] It has been a please to walk into the office each and every time. Office's are always warmed up with space heaters, never waiting more than a couple minutes for anything. Its such an inviting place If I were to have had my children in place like this I might have had 5 kids. Im really going to miss LJSC. I adore everyone there.
[Consultation Review] I have seen DR. Roarke for other procedures and fillers in the past 12yrs and would not consider anyone or any other place to do my procedures. I have never been treated anything but WONDERFUL each time and will recieve the same without a doubt for upcoming procedure. Its called total confidence!
I will end with a general comment; every single aspect of this experience from the simple act of scheduling the initial consultation to the warmth but very realistic approach the the surgeon took with me, the nursing and support staff ,the actual outcome of the surgery, far exceeded my expectations. a wonderful, worthwhile experience.
great experience overall.
Dr. Roark performed my first breast surgery approximately 15-20 years ago. I am beyond delighted to find that he is still easy to find in San Diego. He is a very warm and compasionate surgeon. Everyone involved with my surgery was wonderful. My entire experience was exceedingly pleasing. Thank you!
[Consultation Review] The surgeon took the time to answer questions and explain the procedure he thought was best for me. He also contacted me after the appointment which no other surgeon has done.
[Consultation Review] I felt as though Dr. R. was truly interested and concerned about my issues regarding implants that are over 20 years. He was frank and honest about reasonable expectations. I felt instantly comfortable and believed we were on the same page .
Very satisfied with my surgeon and the surgery. He shows genuine concern and respect at all times. He explains what to expect and askif you there is anything that I do not understand, he is very caring andI feel very comfortable in his care.
Unfortunately, one breast is larger than the other to which now I will have to schedule another visit to have it corrected. Also, the recovery for my eyelift has been a challenge (continued watery eyes, pain and discomfort) even three months later.
[Consultation Review] The atmosphere of the front office, fresh coffee, cookies and muffins. The friendliness of the front office staff.
[Consultation Review] I loved everyone that I worked with and was very pleased with the way I was treated. Thank you so much for being there whenever I needed to talk or had questions.
After my first surgery done by Dr. Roark, I can only be confident with him that everything will be fine
Amazing Team of professionals. Always accessible so kind and very patient with any and all concerns. 5 star experience!!
Dr. Roark was amazing! He made me feel comfortable and confident. The nurses were great, they followed up with me and were also very friendly. Everyone that works at LJCSC seemed to be very knowledgable of my file and procedure.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Roark and Linae were very frinedly, easy to talk to and answred all my questions. They explained how the procedure would go, how long and my recovery time and what to expect. they made me feel very comfortable. Mary was great too. She gave me the cost, offered me options and told me to call her if I had any questions. I am definitely going to have the work done at LJCSC, just need to work out scheduling at my office. thank you to everyone.
Surgeon/Doctor's skill and reputation.Knowledge and Caring Attitude of all staff members.
The nursing staff followed up a lot after the surgery to ensure I was doing well and made me feel like they really cared about me. I felt I could call at any time and speak with the person I was looking for without leaving a message. Everyone anticipated my needs extremely well and Dr. Roark has a great bedside manner that makes you feel comfortable even when you are standing there with no cloths on.
The chin implant that the surgeon put on my face is not appropriate. I don't know if it is not for my chin or if it was placed too close to my teeth, because now my bottom lip is too thin and even looks inside my mouth while my chin raises it to go under my mouth. The chin implant was what they had available at the center, it was not a special order for me, to fit my face. I am not happy, after six months, I see that my bottom lip is going horrible under my mouth, and because I am getting married in November I had to put juviderm to make my b ottom lip stick out a little. I need this chin to be removed and put one that won't distorte my lip.
Loved my surgeon's approach - he's also a friend, so I felt extra safe, and already knew , before my surgery, that I would be happy with my results. I am very happy that I did this - think I got a great result - I still look just like me, but just younger and rejuvenated.
Dr. Roark was fantastic. He preformed above my expectations. He was a great listener and remembered me as a person, not just a patient. The staff was also great.
Great surgeon, nice guy, result is incredible, entire office is a joy to work with.
Dr. Roark was very sincere and his work as a plastic surgeon is in my opinon the best. He did my breast implants over twenty two yrs ago and I was happy to have him re do them. I had a problem with one and he placed the strattus inside and I am doing just great. I hope in yrs to come he will still be there for me again. He is a true artist. I have very good memory's when going through such a surgery. The out come was worth it.
Friendliness, no surprises, results as expected. What more could a person ask for?!
I got the results I wanted from the procedure!The staff and doctors were very professional and caring. The surroundings were pleasant.The wait times were not very long.I was treated with respect and confidentiality.I felt I could trust the people taking care of me.
I was highly satisfied because the doctor and his staff made my surgery experience a great one. From beginning to end, everyone made sure that I understood everything that was happening. I was treated warmly and was extremely comfortable and at ease.
