Breast Augmentation

I was fully informed about every step of the process as to what to expect from consultation to post surgery and follow up. The single best experience was/is Dr. French! He is such a warm personality with a great bedside manner. I am very happy with the outcome.

Breast Reduction

Dr. French is an excellent surgeon with better than expected results. His staff is so friendly and competent. No mistakes in scheduling or follow ups. His nurses are incredible. They are gentle and kind.

Face Lift

It was a very highly organized episode of care. Dr. French is superb and has corrected other surgeries performed by different providers. In addition to the face lift, he also did a nose job that really improved the looks and ability to breath better. But most importantly, Dr. French is more of an artisan with his skill. He his easy to talk to and approachable and makes the little things seem important as well. Great bedside manner.

Face Lift

Personable staff and very thorough in prepping me for surgery. Dr. French is wonderful.

Breast Augmentation

Very comfortable with procedure. Dr. French was up front and honest. Beside manner was fantastic. His staff, especially on surgery day were very warm and welcoming. The anesthesiologist was amazing! I barely even felt the IV and I had very mild recovery. She was so exact in her questioning and I really think that’s what made the entire procedure so smooth.

Face Lift

The doctor and nurses were thorough in their explanations of the pre-op, actual surgery, and post-op recovery. They were very attentive to my personal concerns and answered all of my questions. There was no “up-selling” of additional procedures they could do, rather they listened to my interests.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. French has a wonderful bedside manner - he is calm, measured and very kind. He goes over everything in detail and makes sure you understand the entire procedure from start to finish. He takes great care during the healing process to make sure you are doing okay. Highly recommend Dr. French! I couldn't be happier with my results, it is exactly what I was hoping for.

Breast Reduction

Dr. French and his staff were very knowledgeable with my surgery and recovery. I have never met a more well rounded extremely happy staff. They truly love what they do and how they can help you along the way. I love my breast reduction, don't know why it took me 8 yrs to have it finally done. So very happy that I chose Dr. French, he did an amazing job with my reduction, I was amazed of how little pain I had, only discomfort from the swelling. He and his staff took great care of me and the one time that I did call the service with questions, they promptly called me back. I was completely surprised how much I love my new small breast. Certainly the best decision I have made in regards to my health and well being. The reduction has made me more confident in how I feel about myself, let alone, my shoulders, neck and back! Thank you Dr. French, you are truly amazing!!!
