Ear Surgery

Dr. Symbas explained the surgery in detail. He told me what to expect for the recovery process. The ladies in the office were nice and respond back to emails very quickly. They helped me schedule my surgery as soon as they could based on my schedule. Thank you!!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Symbas did exactly what I wanted & I am highly satisfied with my outcome. I was very uncomfortable before the procedure. My implant was hard & it was driving me crazy. He replaced both implants, reduced the size, and evened them out.


The staff was very personable and professional and running on time. Dr. Symbas is easy to talk with and goes over every option you have and explains the results you should receive. I am looking forward to the procedure!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Symbas took the time to listen to me and hear what I wanted. He has a very caring and compassionate nature and took great care of me. I am thrilled with my outcome. I achieved the desired outcome after having a terrible experience with another plastic surgeon.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

John and staff are amazing. I love the natural look.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Satisfied as always. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Simbas' knowledge and expertise

Tummy Tuck

Made me feel very comfortable, answered all questions and didn’t rush during my appointment.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was super kind, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I was initially nervous but my energy changed after speaking to Dr. Symbas in the first 20 seconds. I feel comfortable with the size I chose.

Face Lift

Dr. Symbas was very professional and caring. He took time to answer my questions and fully explained the facelift procedure. Dr. Symbas came highly recommended and I left the consultation feeling very confident in my decision to use him as my surgeon.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was very attentive and personable. As a new patient, Dr. Symbas and his nurse made me very comfortable and confident in my procedure. Sarah went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and made it a very easy process.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Symbas took the time to go over all of my concerns and gave me realistic expectations. He spent as much time with me as I needed and always made me feel comfortable. He has a great bed side manner and is an impeccable surgeon. He not only met my expectations but exceeded them. I needed reconstructive surgery and previously met with two other surgeons and based on what they said I did not think I would ever have the results I was looking for. I am SO glad I decided to have my surgery with Dr. Symbas because he did exactly what other surgeons said would not be possible. I am very pleased with my results. The whole process was smooth and everything including the office staff has been wonderful.

Breast Reduction

I felt like I was treated with respect, honesty, and dignity. I think Dr. Symbas did an excellent job with the surgery itself and my recovery was quite easy. The staff was patient, helpful and kind.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Every encounter with Dr. Symbas and his staff is a wonderful experience, from calling for an appointment until I'm leaving the building. They are ALL kind, warm, and generous. They treat me as though I am family. I look and feel better without a frown on my brow.

Breast Augmentation

All of my questions were answered. Everyone was very nice. Dr. Symbas explained surgery very thoroughly.
