Eyelid Surgery

Everyone was respectul, caring, and friendly

Breast Reduction

Dr. French has a wonderful demeanor. I greatly appreciate the time and patience he and the staff take to explain the procedure and answer questions. Thank you!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. French came highly recommended by several friends who had procedures with him. He spent a lot of time with me and made me very comfortable with the results I could expect. Unfortunately I have to have a hysterectomy rather urgently so will resume the process of booking surgery as soon as I have recovered from that.

Breast Augmentation

Dd.French is an amazing surgeon! I loved everything about my experience and would definetely recommend him to all my friends.

Face Lift

I am happy.Once in a while someone will notice and say: What did you do that is different? Most never notice.I am privileged to be able to look as young as I feel.Lucky, too. Not everyone can pull it all together to have the time, money, support, ability, etc. This was a bucket list experience. It turned out that there were no setbacks. I feel fortunate that I could do this with the right doctor, in the right place, at the right time, with my health metrics in the right place. Even his support staff did right by me... as this kind of surgery, while elective, takes care and kindness regarding each element of the recovery.Just grateful for the whole effort from start to finish.In the past few years, we have known many people who had their lives cut short. To fulfill a bucket list wish is accomplishing something. So I am content and thrilled simultaneously. Thanks

From the beginning to the end I was completely satisfied with the process. Everything that was explained and covered happened as planned. The customer service was excellent and Dr French was very confident that the procedure would go well. This made me feel even more comfortable and gave me peace of mind. The outcome looks great which in turn makes me feel great. Definitely have a higher self esteem now.

Mommy Makeover

The staff were welcoming, answered my questions without any sense of impatience, yet also didn't waste my time. Appointments were very efficient. Dr. French explained how it would go and then followed up with aftercare information. The surgery itself was as comfortable as it could be, and I am very pleased with my outcome so far!

I found Dr. French understood exactly what I was looking for. He explained the face lift and under eye procedures in detail. He made me feel extremely comfortable and I felt confident in choosing him to do my surgery! His staff was very friendly and helpful! Great experience!

Breast Lift

Amazing bed side manner by each dr/staff member. Really pleased with office, dr and procedure results.

Tummy Tuck

I am extremely pleased with the results of my tummy tuck and wish I had done it sooner. . Since I have had other procedures performed by Dr. French, I knew what to expect from him and his staff. From the time of my consultation to the surgery, and then the post-op visits I always felt that I was with an excellent medical team.
