Hector Salazar-Reyes, MD, FACS Reviews (47)

Breast Augmentation

I am highly satisfied with results of my surgery and I knew I would because I liked and trusted Dr. Salazar. I trusted his sense of aesthetics, he really helped me understand what to expect, and what was possible to achieve given my anatomy and my life style. He was very friendly and patient, I liked his office, and I thought all of the written materials were thorough and clear. I felt very comfortable going into surgery in terms of knowing I'd be in great hands physically with Dr. Salazar and the medical staff (nurse, anesthesiologist etc). I had a great experience with all office staff leading up to the surgery and after during follow up appointments. I'm honestly more satisfied than I thought I would and only wish I would have met Dr. Salazar earlier! The whole process was fun and not stressful.

Eyelid Surgery

One of the reasons why I was highly satisfied with my experience, is because my doctor, Dr. Salazar, was very patient, polite and informative. His assistant, Carmen, and Dr. Salazar were both caring and they would always ask me how I was doing and made me feel very comfortable. The receptionist are also very kind towards me.

Breast Augmentation

From the moment I walked in the door I was impressed with the appearance of the office and professionalism and friendliness of the staff. The nurse, Carmen was especially nice and down to earth. She was easy to talk to and she listened to everything I had to say. My doctor was very attentive and was also a great listener. He was very informative and friendly as well. I felt like everything I said mattered. And all of my questions were answered confidently. I had several consultations with different doctors before my appointment with this office and once I met Dr. Salazar-Reyes and his nurse Carmen, I made up my mind instantly that this is the team I will do my surgery with. Due to having children, I have to make arrangements to have the surgery done and I’m excited for that time to come!

Mommy Makeover

Every staff member I interacted with was friendly yet professional. The materials provided to review both before my initial appointment and after the surgery had been scheduled were extremely helpful.

Breast Lift

La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center sets the standard for professionalism. In every aspect. This is my opinion, having surgery done before other places. Right when you walk in the waiting room alone is so clean and open and plenty of room so you're not packed in there like sardines and beautiful you don't get a feeling in your stomach.. like I need to get out of here. Everyone is dressed for the job that they are doing. That may sound weird to notice this. But if you have had consultations and surgeries before...then you've seen it all.. you had those gut feelings about a doctor when he comes in unshaven to give you a consultation--those types of things matter. Because if an office doesn't care about the way the waiting room looks or the way the workers look or carry themselves you need to get out of there. Completely opposite here everything is wonderful five stars and Beyond. Dr.Salazar was professional as well as comforting. Very balanced for sure. Everything was explained in a way that I could understand this tricky surgery that I'm about to undergo. I have a wonderful piece of mind going into this and that's what you need. My husband and I feel very good about choosing this place for my procedure. And I know that I am in good hands I can feel it. I would recommend this place to anyone who is considering surgery.. and the fact is from the moment I called for the consultation appointment even though I had another consultation somewhere else I did know that in the end we were going to pick this place. I have already scheduled my procedure and I'm very very excited.
