I am absolutely grateful to Dr. Symbas and his staff. He is an extremely proffesional, caring and skilled physician. This has been a very positive experience.
The Piedmont office team is very accommodating; they promptly respond they have to get back to you and appear genuine and committed in making the patient feel valued. I was fortunate to have a patient advocate Jan Brown- this was a game changer. She was there for me 24/7 and mitigate many of my fears and panic. Dr. Symbas was also terrific. He carefully explained what was happening to me on day 3 when I called at 9:00 pm on a Friday night.
Dr. Symbas maintains an excellent bedside manner, so your experience is always as comfortable as possible considering the circumstances. I needed scar revision and the process was seamless. I am grateful for the expertise and demeanor of everyone at Dr. Symbas's office. [Single best thing is...] the ease of access to the facility and being able to recover at home was the best part of my surgical experience.
The experience was very good. The staff very helpful. Reduced lines.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are the best!
Very welcoming. Listened to what I wanted very closely. Told me what he could do and was straight up with everything. Amazing doctor and person.
Dr. Symbas is awesome!!!
My results were perfect and the doctor and staff were exceptional. Excellent results, friendly staff, explanation of the procedure was understandable and helpful.
Dr. Symbas and his team are wonderful! My surgical options were explained thoroughly and all my questions were answered. The follow up care was exceptional. I wish I had done this surgery sooner. Life after breast reduction is so much better! Following breast reduction my clothes fit better, I sleep better and look like a better version of myself. Dr. Symbas worked a miracle for me!
The staff was attentive. Dr. Symbas answered all of my questions. I did not feel pressured to move forward with the surgery. In the end I did move forward with the surgery, but it was because I trusted Dr. Symbas and not because I felt pressure to get the surgery done.
Dr. Symbas is always nice to me and he loves what he does. He is amazing. Great results from Botox. My face looks great.
The staff is so professional and friendly. The spa robes are so much more pleasant to wear vs. the ratty hospital gown I previously was given at my former surgeons office. Dr. Symbas is so nice and truly cares about my concerns and made me feel confident that he can correct my problem.
I went to Dr. Symbas for surgery and I did not regret it one bit. He and his staff are very professional and makes you feel comfortable. He does a great job and I am loving my results.
In mid-July 2019 Dr. Symbas performed my breast lift/reduction surgery. I am so very pleased with the results–I feel like a new person! My only regret is allowing myself to suffer for as many years as I did. Throughout the whole process, from the initial consult to the surgery and each follow up appointment, Dr. Symbas went well out of his way, above and beyond, to make himself available to answer my questions and address concerns. I especially appreciated the fact that he included me in his strategic thought process. Helping me understand the procedure, potential conditions he could encounter and how he would handle it went a long way toward my decision to select him as my surgeon. In fact, every member of his practice I had contact with was a pleasure to work with, eager to make sure I felt taken care of. Another key to my choice of Dr. Symbas was his reconstructive specialty. I trusted that he had all the tools in his arsenal along with the expertise necessary to address any issue that may arise during the surgery. He is not only a skilled surgeon; he is a genuinely caring person, approachable and easy to talk to. Dr. John Symbas belongs at the top of your short list!
From first consult, interaction with the entire staff, surgical process, after care & follow up visit, I felt completely cared for, listened to & my needs were made a priority. Dr. Symbas is a rare find. Not only an extremely gifted surgeon but also a compassionate & caring human being.
Dr. Symbas was very good at setting expectations, approaching my procedure with care and empathy and then executing the best possible outcome.
Made me feel comfortable. Priced correctly. Did not over promise.
Caring Dr. and staff. Quick and easy procedure with very good results.
Dr. Symbas is truly the best. He always makes me feel comfortable and provides the best experience and results. Results are important, and Dr. Symbas provides the right information in order to manage expectations. He also provides great feedback and insights pre and post surgery to ensure optimal results.
The customer service and patient care was incredible. And watching people come in and leave they were happy and smiling. That means so much. What a great team. [Single best thing is...] Looking and feeling younger without any downtime. Quick and easy and able to work same day.
Dr. Symbas took his time explaining my surgical options. I was well informed about what to expect during my recovery. I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Symbas and his entire team are professional, kind and responsive. I highly recommend them!
The Dr. was detailed. He was nice. He was personal.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are very kind, compassionate people. All my questions are always answered, and I never feel rushed. They seem to really care about you as a person.
Excellent Customer Service and Knowledge. Compassionate providers.
Dr. Symbas and his entire staff are GREAT! I had a wonderful experience and am very happy with my results. Will definitely be back!
High level of support and professionalism by Dr. Symbas & team. Excellent result from surgery. Excellent preparation for both surgery and recovery.
Dr. Symbas does excellent work and he listens to my concerns and answers all my questions. He also tells me to text or call him directly if I have any other questions or concerns after my appointment. He makes me feel as though I’m his only patient and he has always been there for me before, during and after my procedure.
Dr. Symbus did a wonderful job on my face and neck. He was so patient with me. I have recommended him to many people.
Dr. Symbas did an AMAZING job. From start to finish, he and his staff were amazing. They took care of my every need and made me feel like family! I could not be happier I used him and my results are beyond my best dream! The best part was how they made you feel like you were family.
Best doctor in Atlanta. He gives the most caring bedside manner and his follow-ups want to make sure you are happy.
The staff and Dr. Symbas are the best. They always take care of me like I am the only patient. They all are very professional. I am looking younger and better than ever.
My eyes are pretty symmetrical and open without skin hanging over the tops or sides of my eyes. I am very pleased with the results! Dr. Symbas and his staff were great! They listened to all my concerns, addressed them, and made me totally at ease for the surgery.
All my questions were answered thoroughly. The staff was polite and professional! I like how the estimate was complete and itemized.
The staff was wonderful and friendly.Dr Symbas is an amazing doctor. Very professional
As usual, easy-peasy from my call for an appointment through the appointment and treatment until I paid and left. Staff and Dr. Symbas are always delightfully pleasant, professional, and knowledgable. I could not ask for a better medical experience.
Dr Symbas did a fantastic job with my breast lift. I have been able to wear clothes that I was not comfortable wearing for over 20 years. He made me comfortable again in my own skin. My breast look fantastic and I can’t believe I didn’t do this years ago. Dr Symbas has the best bed side manner. He always listens to my concerns and is able to answer my questions clearly so that I understand my body’s healing process. Dr Symbas has the most amazing professional staff that responds quickly and effectively with my needs during my time off of work. I’ve been so happy with Dr Symbas’ work that I have referred many of my very best friends. I trust him to return.
I can't say enough about Dr. Symbas and his entire office. From the minute I came in for my initial consultation I was so at ease. He has the most amazing bed side manner. He made sure to call me the night before surgery to address any last minute concerns and has made himself completely available to me. I am 41 years old and I have 3 young kids, I've never looked or felt better!!! Thank you Dr. Symbas!
Courteous and friendly staff. Responded to my questions and phone calls immediately. Answered all my questions. Made me feel comfortable with the upcoming surgery for our daughter. Reassuring that she will be well taken care of.
Everyone in the practice was professional, friendly and positive. I felt I had all the time I needed to discuss the procedure with Dr. Symbas. His nurse was excellent at providing information and helping me feel comfortable.
I feel like Dr. Symbass did a wonderful job of listening to what I really wanted. I’m very happy with my breast lift and feel like it fits me just right!
Outcome was excellent. Dr. Symbas is one of the most attentive caring Doctors I have encountered. All staff were knowledgeable & helpful during entire process besides being so nice
Everyone I interacted with was engaging, professional, and courteous. Dr. Symbas was a pleasure to work with throughout my experience, from my consultation, surgery, and follow up. He took time outside of his work day to talk with me on several occasions.
Staff highly professional and very informative. Surgery has been postponed due to current health problems that must be resolved first.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are extraordinary. They really listen to your questions and concerns and take as much time as needed to thoughtfully explain everything. They treated me like family from day one. Dr. Symbas is very highly skilled and did an amazing job with my surgery. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Symbas was calm and caring. He did precisely what I asked him to do. No more and no less.
The results are better than anticipated. The surgery created a better version of me not a stranger. Many compliments. It was the care and attention of Dr. Symbas himself and his staff of professionals that made it a great experience.
Great results, great office personnel. Dr. Symbas goes above and beyond to give you a look you’ll love that makes you happy. Very thorough up front in understanding your needs so therefore better end result. Never felt rushed or that he wasn’t paying attention which IMO is part of why he gives you exactly, or more than, what you wish for. I truly felt he would have spent the entire day on me if that’s what he thought was needed. Very fairly priced as well.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are so kind and caring.
Dr. Symbas is the most compassionate and caring physician I have ever dealt with. My face looks ten years younger. It was pretty painless.
An abundance of pre-op and post-op printed materials covered everything I could possibly need. The surgery was right on schedule, and all staff at the facility were very kind and helpful. I am already much better and didn't need some of the medications. It was all together a much easier experience than I anticipated. Dr. Symbas is wonderful. Can hardly wait to see the results although he was very honest about the time it will take to see final results. Wish I had done it sooner.
I felt very comfortable and confident in the doctor.
Everyone I met was extremely helpful and friendly. The nurse made me feel extremely comfortable while taking pictures. Dr. Symbas thoroughly explained the procedure and was not pushy. He made me feel very comfortable when looking at my photos and discussing my options. The surgical coordinator was very sweet. I scheduled my procedure a week later.
Sarah, is so wonderful. Dr Smybas really cares about his patients and wants them to be completely satisfied. The entire staff treated myself and my family members with kindness and understood our craziness
From my initial contact with Dr. Symbas and staff I was/am so impressed with their freindly, professional attitude. I love my results and it is all due to their abilities and wonderful care. I have recommended them several times and plan to return myself for future procedures.
Paperwork was absurd
My experience with Dr. John Symbas and Dr. Moore was one of the greatest, Dr. Simbas called me that afternoon before my surgery to ask how was I feeling what was I thinking. When I explained to him you make me feel so comfortable with his reply that everything is normal what I’m feeling. For one thing I don’t have excess bleeding anymore, thanks to Dr. Mora she is a wonderful person and a super doctor she sit down and talk to you like never before. If I ever think about having surgery OB/GYN it’s got to be her, Thanks to your team everyone was super nice throughout my visit until the day of surgery
Surgery went well no problem . My daughter had surgery as well and Dr Symbas coordinated our post op visits so we didn’t have to go to Atlanta more than needed
Just that I was so well informed - I didnt have many questions to ask. They were so professional I really felt at ease. I had complete confidence in the staff, especially in Dr Symbas.
Everyone was awesome!They listen, bed side manners were phenomenal and the doctor was far beyond my expectations. I will surely recommend to others and come only to this facility for any additional needs. Great experience and looking forward to sharing the good news of this facility!
I found them to be very responsive, professional, friendly and reassuring. I was impressed enough to not make appointments with the other practices I researched! I am really looking forward to my surgery!
Dr. Symbas from consultation to post-opp was delightful, informative, sincere and compassionate. He answered all questions but also made me feel at total ease throughout the process. I could have not asked for more. I love my smaller breasts. I wish I had done it ten years ago!
Dr. Symbas and his staff were quite helpful and available to me both before and after the surgery. I felt that they were genuinely interested in my concerns and willing to answer any question pre- or post-op. Dr. Symbas was always interested in my comfort, concerns, and always quite supportive during the process. Very minimal pain and quick recovery.
All the staff were exceptionally helpful and available.
Very impressed with staff and Dr. Symbas. High comfort level that I will be taken care of during and after procedure. No one hurried with the consult - allowed as much time as I needed.
Everyone was very nice Dr Symbas is the greatest doctor
From the very start Dr. Symbas and the Oncological surgeon ( Dr. Page ) with whom he coordinated both took the time to personally discuss the procedures and possible approaches and outcomes. This joint meeting left me with a high degree of confidence in both doctors. Both did separate follow up visits to the hospital the morning after the surgery. Since I was an out of state patient, both Drs. made it easy for me to contact them personally if there might be any complications. All went according to plan. Great outcome.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were incredible.I had multiple surgeries and am very pleased with the outcome of all.
Dr. Symbas is a doctor who cares and can be trusted. After several surgeries for breast cancer, I am most happy with my choice of Dr. Symbas as my plastic surgeon. I’m thankful he was with us to help us through this process. The after care I have received has been outstanding. I know I can call at any time with a question, and Dr. Symbas will be happy to help. Additionally, the nurses from Piedmont Surgery Center were thorough and very compassionate.
Experience and Knowledge.Positive feedback in the surgeons abilty to close and repair my face .The positive vibe I received from this office, as I was scared going into it , felt better after speaking with the office staff.
Everything regarding my procedure was a great experience. I had reconstructive surgery on my nose from basil cell cancer. It was a very large area, plus scaring from previous surgeries and Dr. Symbas was wonderful! He did a great job and I am very grateful to him for his creative ability to minimize the scaring. I would definitely recommend him to my friends!
Dr Symbas and staff were present, attentive and caring. He explained exactly what he was going to do and patiently fielded my questions and concerns. He did an extraordinary job considering the problem he had to solve and the limited amount of skin he had to work with. He is a consummate professional!
Dr. Symbas and his staff have been truly professional and comforting to me as I go through this life circumstance and situation.
Dr. Symbas and his staff made me feel comfortable, and they showed that they cared about me.
I have had a fistula for a year now and after meeting with Dr Feldman, he told me about Dr. Symbas who would be assisting. I was reluctant at first but over all happy! Dr. Symbas was great and answered all my questions Sarah his Surgery coordinator could be mor patient friendly
I thought Dr. Symbas and the entire staff went above and beyond to make me feel at ease and comfortable with my surgical procedure. I was impressed with their professionalism and my overall experience with everyone. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends. I am amazed and very pleased with the results. My recovery went very well. I was back to my usual physical activities after 8 weeks. I would have to say that I am amazed how minimal the scarring is.
Felt comfortable, friendly staff, educated staff, did not feel rushed.
I saw my Breast Specialist for pre-surgery appointment a week before my surgery was scheduled when I decided to add reduction to my lumpectomy. Dr. Symbus was able to squeeze me in for a consult that same day. My husband and I met with Dr. Symbus and found him to be very pleasant, confident and skilled in his craft. The recommendation from my specialist was spot on! Thankfully he was able to work my procedure into his schedule so I did not need to reschedule it. He made me feel like I would be taken care of and had no reason for concern with my upcoming surgery.
Dr Symbas has done some surgery before and I think he’s a great surgeon!
Dr. John Symbas explained to me on the operating table exactly what he could do for me. It was not like open heart surgery but a very delicate procedure and he was the most qualified to do the job. He told me not to worry and that he would do a perfect job. Not only was he confident, he backed up his words. John was the most sincere person I have ever encountered. He did an outstanding job and many people that have seen his work will attest to that. I am sending pictures of the healing to his e-mail address. Make me your poster child. Thanks again Dr. John your really out did yourself. See you upon my return from Florida. [name]
Extremely proffessional and excellent care by John and his entire staff. Made a horrifying breast cancer surgery bearable and very pleased with my results. Made me feel whole again after a bi lateral mastecomy.
Everyone was nice, pleasant, and very informative. Surgeon made me feel very comfortable
The Staff is wonderful and Dr Symbas and his Nurse Jessica both have a fantastic bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable.
I was highly satisfied with the consultation. I haven’t had the procedure done yet
Dr. Symbas showed great concern and compassion during and after procedure of removing cancer and subsequent plastic surgery. The doctor always made my wife and myself comfortable and appreciated.
Dr. Symbols was very professional made me feel relaxed and took the time to explain everything I needed to know about the procedure I am interested in. It was nice looking at the before and after pictures of his beautiful work. I have heard MANY great reports from several people who have used him for their procedure s. I am so happy I was able to find such a great surgeon and WILL have him do my procedure in the future.I also was happy with 2 options. Everybody was very nice and I appreciate that, I didn't feel like just a number.Thank you so much!
Punctual, friendly, clear information provided.
The surgeon and nurse were friendly and answered the questions I had at the time, although I had to call back and ask questions about the timeline for my procedure. I was impressed the surgeon gave me his personal cell phone number, which I would certainly not abuse. I am ambivalent about having the procedure but feel confident I'll be in good hands when I do.
1) Professional surgery, 2) care, 3)lack of noticeable scarring and follow up. The personal and professional care and followups
Dr. Symbas and team are a very caring and professional group. They promote an atmosphere for your comfort. They listen attentively to your concerns and desires and give you the options available for results you are looking for. Kept my wishes in mind throughout every procedure.
Dr. Symbas and his entire staff were amazing! They were all helpful and caring, and I would absolutely return as well as recommend them to friends and family. Words cannot express how much my life has changed for the better after having a breast reduction. I would do it again tomorrow.
Friendly staff members as well as the Surgeon.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are amazing. They are professional, compassionate, and consistently go above and beyond to make you comfortable. I am a breast reconstruction patient and was forced to switch doctors during this process. I am so happy that I met Dr. Symbas. He and his staff have made a difficult transition extremely easy. I can't say enough about how great they are.
Everything was great. We have simply chosen to go to a physician that is within our state to minimize trouble with logistics. My only advice would be for Dr. Symbas to give more information at the initial consultation. For example, everything that I asked him was answered and answered fully, but I had to initiate the conversation to gain all the information that I wanted. Things like different kinds of implants, surgical time and recovery should be spoken by the physician before the patient needs to ask these standard questions. He simply came in the room, introduced himself, examined me, and then waited for me to ask any and all questions, even the basic ones like I mentioned above. Because of this, several of my specific questions were forgotten until after the consultation was already over. However, I truly enjoyed meeting Dr. Symbas, and would certainly recommend him to my Georgia friends. Our logistics to get to his office simply proved to not be conducive for my family.
The entire staff at this office is highly professional, truly make the patient feel that their needs come first, are heard and within the power of the staff met. I have had 3 surgeries in 7 weeks and wouldn't have want to go through this with any other Doctor, PA, nurses or office staff. They provided one of the bright spots in the midst of unforeseen complications that were not of their making. Feeling blessed that I sought a second opinion for plastic surgeon to reconstruct following bilateral mastectomy.
Could not be more satisfied with this practice--everyone is experienced, caring, informative, professional. the attention they gave to a 67 year old woman post mastectomy reconstruction -- every question answered, every concern addressed.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful. They treated me like apart of their family. I would recommend them to family and friends.
From the time I called to make the appointment, to the time I arrived at the office, I felt totally at ease. The office staff greeted me with a smile and were very personable. Dr. Symbas was professional and truly caring. He listened to my concerns and heard what I was saying. I had a list of questions which he answered and encouraged me to ask as many as I needed. He asked me how I felt & what I was thinking. He & his staff are very knowledgeable. I am so glad he was recommended to me for my breast reconstruction.
- THOROUGH AND COMPLETE INFORMATION IN LAYMAN'S TERMS: Information and options - both surgical and non-surgical provided; no question left unanswered; extraordinary patience exhibited by Dr. Symbas, his surgical team, and his office staff- EXPERIENCE: Extremely positive - both in-office and in the surgery center- SURGICAL OUTCOME: Better than envisioned- FUTURE: No fear or hesitation in approaching Dr. Symbas for additional required or necessary procedures
I was shocked at how easy it all was. Should have done this years ago.
Superb customer experience partly due to the care and attention the receptionist, nurses, PA’s and Dr. Symbass showed me both before and after my procedure. They treated me like they actually cared about me, like I was family.
Dr. Symbas goes through everything the procedure entails, both before and after. He has never tried to sell me on a procedure, unlike consultations I had with other surgeons. The single best thing about this experience is my results. I literally could not be any happier! This is my 3rd procedure with Dr. Symbas, and both he and his staff are fantastic, and my results are even better!! I recommend his practice to everyone and anyone I know who is considering having cosmetic surgery.
Dr Symbus was very courteous & professional! He was very compassionate & caring taking time to discuss the surgery in detail. I never felt rushed in his office. Staff were very courageous & helpful.. Thank you for a wonderful experience & helping me feel beautiful again! Thank you from the bottom of my heart !!
The doctor listen to me and cared about what I had to say.
Everyone was so incredibly nice and caring, from the very first person I talked to on the phone to make my appointment, to the person handling coordinating the surgery dates and times. This was a very stressful issue for me, and they made me feel comfortable and confident in my decisions. I left feeling much better and not as stressed.
The practice as a whole was extremely courteous and helpful. I feel comfortable using this practice for all my needs in this field.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were highly available prior to, during, and after my surgery, doing much to alleviate my family's fears and to answer questions as they arose. They proved to be one of the BEST facets of the medical practices available at Piedmont Hospital, and my primary reason for travelling from Elizabethton, TN to Atlanta for treatment.
My visit with Dr Symbas was done after my surgery by Dr. Page and was very satisfied.
Dr. Symbas listened, I wasn't rushed, could ask questions, and the procedure went well and there has been minimal scarring on my back Dr. Symbas didnt rush the check up & was willing to talk & listen
Friendliness of doctor and office. All very professional yet very caring.
I have never met a more caring and outgoing medical group. Dr. Symbas is a jewel. The care and concern was wonderful
All very, very nice, and the result is wonderful. Had to do a lot of grafting after a melanoma was removed.
Loved everyone I interacted with before, during and after surgery. Sarah has been great about answering all my questions and working through all the details. I would have never thought having surgery out of state could be so easy. Dr. Symbas was so great to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to refer friends or family to him.
Dr. Sambas is so knowledgeable and has excellent bedside manner with patients.
The office staff was very caring. I was never left alone during my visit. It was nice to have someone to talk to while waiting. Dr. Symbas is an exceptional person. He takes time with you and he doesn't only listen to you, he hears you. He explains everything in detail and while he's explaing he stops and asks, What's going through your mind? Dr. Symbas is a very caring, compassionate, thougtful, personable and understanding doctor. After being diagnosed with breast cancer and having reconstructive surgery, he is the type of doctor you want. He was definitely a blessing to me.
Kindness. Skill. Personal attention. Responsive to concerns. Felt like I mattered. Grateful. Hopefully I will live a normal lifespan and do it without further complications from cancer.
Dr. Symbas and his entire staff are so compassionate and they gave me all the time I needed to ask questions. He is so kind and caring. The repair on my very large hernia has been really good. It has healed beautifully. Thank you Dr. Symbas, [patient name]
Dr. S ymbas is extremely compassionate and exhibits an air of excellence in what he does. In addition, the entire staff at Piedmont Hospital involved in my care was excellent as well. The friendliness and compassion of the staff play an important role in my having a future surgery at Piedmont Hospital.
Dr Symbas was very approachable and very easy to talk with. He called to check up after procedure. I was shocked that he called instead of office staff or the physician assistant. He explained the procedure very well and even explained it to my spouse. I am very impressed. Down to earth people. I am satisfied. I had an unsightly large patch of abnormal skin of left side of face that needed to be remove - I was worry that it may be cancer... I am glad that Dr Symbas took me on as a patient.
Staff and Dr I have breast that look normal
Dr. Symbas listened to what my concerns were and offered solutions specifically for me. Other doctors came in with a game plan before even meeting with me. I am confident in my clothes and look how I should for my age. I no longer feel that my weight loss is obvious in my saggy boobs.
Dr. Symbas is the most personable and compassionate surgeon I've ever met. He truly cares about his patients. He communicates well and in a language I can understand. I just can't say enough good things about him and his staff is equally wonderful.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were very attentive and caring. Although my surgery was not your typical plastic surgery (improving one's appearance) I would definitely consider Dr. Symbas and his team. Hopefully there is no further need for cancer
I always feel heard, respected, and included in my medical procedure. My concerns are addressed in a professional and respectful manner. The staff is informed and knowledgeable I get to wear shorts and bikinis!!! Something I was never confident enough to do before and has now become my new way of life! I'm in shorts or in my bikinis any chance I get!
I can't say enough about the positive experience provided by Dr Symbas and his staff. The only individual that wasn't friendly or warm and fuzzy was filling in when a regular staff member was on her honeymoon. The nurses and Dr Symbas all made you feel like you were the most important person in the office and took as much time as needed to answer any questions. Absolutely top notch! Having the reduction has allowed me to feel comfortable and confident in my clothes! I love to exercise and do yoga and now I don't have to worry about falling out of my clothes when I am enjoying these activities. I feel well proportioned and more confident.
Dr. Symbas is a very compassionate doctor. He is also a very skilled surgeon and is a perfectionist when it comes to results and patient care. His staff is exceptional as well, providing a personalized level of service each time you are in the office. I've had several procedures performed by Dr. Symbas during my recovery from breast cancer and he has taken great care of me each time! I would recommend Dr. Symbas to anyone I know! It's difficult to know what you want when you are recovering from breast cancer. Really all I desired was to be whole again. Dr. Symbas did an amazing job of listening to my feelings and concerns, and was able to make excellent recommendations for my surgery. The best thing is that Dr. Symbas listens intently to the patient, and because he listens, he knows what a patient wants even when the patient may not be able to articulate the information.
I just loved that dr symbas made me feel very comfortable and told me exactly what he was going to do and listened To my concerns Dr symbas is amazing
I was very impressed with the doctor with his knowledge and his personality.
Dr Symbus was highly recommended by another surgeon [provider name] & a nurse in Pedimont pre registration office. I feel confident with Dr Symbus performing my upcoming scheduled surgery. He is a very courteous and knowledgeable surgeon. Can't wait to see the surgery outcome!!!
Dr. Symbas and staff are amazing! Great bedside" manner from Dr. Symbas and a warm, friendly staff."
Dr Symbas and his staff were very professional and friendly. I was very anxious at first and Dr Symbas and his Nurse made me feel very comfortable.I am very pleased with the result of my surgery . My family was very pleased and said if ever they would need a surgeon, they wanted Dr Symbas and his staff.Thank you for an opportunity to share my experience. [patient name] I felt that I would be cared for because they really wanted to help.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were amazing. I highly recommend him and his team. Great bedside manner, listening skills, and care for his patients! How attentive the staff was from start to finish.
Dr. Symbas is an overall great physician. he has such a kind heart and is very family oriented
Dr. Symbas and his staff made me feel comfortable and informed throughout my surgery. Their level of care and professionalism is top notch. I was treated like a family member instead of a patient. I especially appreciate the attention to my emotional recovery and not simply the physical recovery. Finding a doctor that truly cares is priceless in my opinion. I am so grateful for Dr. Symbas and his entire team.
Friendly knowledgeable supportive kind and caring staff I lost 40 pounds and my back doesn't hurt anymore and my bladder problems are 90% better
very good references about Dr Symbas superior technical skills for the procedure superior human skills....very important to me I felt very comfortable and safe with him during the whole procedure and after the comfort I developed about Dr Symbas skills, after my research about him
I have had other procedures done with Dr. Symbas when he was with another practice, the results were excellent. He is an great doctor, whom I refer to anyone who is interested in the procedure I have already had. The staff at the new office were helpful, insightful, courteous, and super friendly. I will be scheduling my procedure within the next 30 days as a result of my consultation.
Everybody at this practice is highly trained, superior customer service and knowledgeable. All my procedures have been amazing and their follow up is greatly appreciated. These procedures have given me back confidence throughout this aging process. I love that my surgeon is compassionate about my needs but is conservative enough not to let me over do it.
Dr Symbas was very clear on how he would approach the process of removing the abnormal skin on the left side of my head. He took time to answer my questions. Pretty much a clear process.
All of the staff was knowledgeable and helpful, as if I was their only patient for the day, from beginning to end. Dr. Symbas was very patient, relaxed, and reassuring. He promptly returned my call to further discuss options that I thought about after the initial appointment, and seemed happy and unrushed to think and talk through each option with me, regarding size, shape, and type of implant. Jessica, the PA, was also informative and easy-going. My pre-op nurse was super helpful in explaining everything to expect and how to prepare. (The pre-op shopping sheet was a great idea!) Sarah, the pre-op coordinator was friendly and on the ball. Finally, the results are just what I was looking for: natural and perfect! The staff made the final decision in the operating room for which look to go for, and they were on-point. Thank you!
Dr. Symbas and his staff provided a level of caring that was very unique. They were with me every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend that practice. They serve their patients from the heart! I feel whole again!
Dr. Symbas is great surgeon and a good, good person. He is warm, friendly, and professional. He treats everyone like they are members of his family.
I absolutely love Dr. Symbas and his staff. I always felt supported through out this whole process and I couldn't have asked for them to be anymore attentive. Being diagnosed with breast cancer is a very difficult life moment. However, when you have people like Dr. Symbas and his staff to help you navigate through the ups and downs...you soon learn you can get through it!
Felt I had two really caring doctors and they performed their duties with great skill and concern for patient.
Dr Symbas is not only a gifted surgeon but also very nice and sincere surgeon to his patients. He gave me his personal cel phone number in case I have any concerns. The staff as well are very friendly and sweet. My recovery was so easy, way easier than expected. And I'm could not wish for a better results! Definitely worth every penny. My clothes fit so much better than before. And it definitely boost my confidence
An easy process from start to finish. Friendly and professional staff and Dr. Symbas was very detailed with the procedure. PA called me on Monday after I was released to see how I was feeling and to discuss my follow-up appointment this week. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Symbas to anyone needing a similar procedure.
The staff were very polite and answered all of my questions. I felt comfortable in the office and during my appointments.The staff all took time to make me feel comfortable and at ease.
Dr. Symbas not only exhibits an air of excellence but has a remarkable bedside manner as well. I have 100% trust in this fabulous, reputable doctor.
The staff is very friendly and positive. They treated me with such care and were very careful to explain things over again until I understood perfectly what was to happen and how. This took fear out of the picture. A great group! Very comfortable with myself.
I interviewed several surgeons first, as my surgery would be a complicated reconstruction involving my eye, and effecting my vision. Dr Symbas was by far the most knowledgeable and able and creative. He was able to fix the problem and leave me with complete function and look.
The entire staff is incredibly caring! I've never experienced such great care in a doctor's office. Dr. Symbas made me feel so comfortable and well cared for. I'm so impressed with the way they run their practice. Highly recommend!!!
My procedure is for breast cancer and the surgery date was set in collaboration with the breast surgeon.Dr Symbas and his staff are outstanding. I was comfortable from the first phone call with Carie, through the appointment and subsequent consent, etc. forms. I felt welcome by a competent and efficient staff. Dr Symbas has a tremendous ability to put patients who are apprehensive at ease, and was thorough and patient with my questions. I left feeling like I was in terrific hands all around. It meant a lot. Thank you!
It is not often we come across doctors who are as skillful and caring as this individual. Dr. Symbas attention to my physical care was shown through his skills however his attention to my emotional care is what overwhelms me. His words offered peace to my mind and enable me to trust that my questions or concerns are not trivial. The quality and value he placed on my needs is demonstrated whenever I communicate with him. Dr. Symbas is not a counterfeit but the genuine example of what I think it takes to be in this field. I pray that the students in medical schools around the world could come with his compassion, caring, kindness, consideration and SKILLS! It is my desire that these students become individuals who truly sees, hears, and values their patients as well as Dr. Symbas seem see, hear and value me. Thank you John Symbas
The staff and provider were very nice and really seem to care about you. Also spent a lot of time with me.
Dr. Symbas was very caring and knowledgeable. I almost chose him for my procedure. He and Dr. Ma both came highly recommended by Dr. Barber. I chose MA just because of a serendipitous encounter.
From start to finish everything was pleasant and informative.
Dr. Symbas was awesome. Very nice and knowledgeable. My surgery was not elective, it was to fix an injury to my eye and nose and he was very considerate of that and provided me with all the necessary information I needed about the procedures. He emphasized that he was available by phone if I ever had any questions and made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely come back to him for any future procedures needed.
Feeling much better and light . Surgeon and staff are very nice. Surgery is very satisfied. Overall I like it.
Dr. Symbas and his team have been a blessing my life. He took a terrible experience and situation I had been dealing with and completely fixed my problems from a previous surgery from a different doctor. My situation was shown immense care and attention to detail. I have since recommended his practice to friends and family due to his excellent work.
Dr John Symbas is truly a remarkable doctor; he listen to his patients attentively and care for them; he is professional in every way. This was my second time having this procedure done, the first dr in my option didn't delivery what I expected from her as a patient; after several visits to her and explained the complications I were having she never once said to me that she was willing to go the extra mile to care for me first as a human being and second as her patient. I was already dealing with stress of breast cancer. Thanh goodness I was recommended to Dr John Symbas, he found that one of my breast was reputed and the other was installed incorrectly.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are extremely professional and go above and beyond to be friendly and to make their patients feel comfortable. They make you feel like they truly care about you and do NOT treat you like you are just another pay check. I was fighting cancer and was scared and they made me feel like it was going to be ok. They make me feel like they care.
Nothing was done wrong. The doctors both, Dr. Symbas and Dr. Bowman were great. The nurses in the waiting area before surgery were extremely nice.
The friendly reception i got and the short wait time and the Doctor was so nice.
Dr. Symbas and his staff are the best I have come across. I wish all doctors and their practice were as caring. Highly recommend and feel free to use me as a reference.
Everyone in this practice, surgeon, nurses, patient coordinator are excellent. Very caring, highly involved and responsive. I highly recommend Dr Symbas and his staff.
Surgeon and staff are very skillful and caring. Once the reconstruction is complete I know that my everyday life will be changed for the positive.
Dr. Symbas is absolutely awesome! He has great passion and patience- and genuinely cares about each patient. His staff is great as well- all our questions and concerns were addressed immediately. The results are beautiful- again Dr. Symbas took the time to explain everything and even the day of surgery he was still reassuring us everything was going to be alright. He is a Very caring and intentional person- could not have asked for a better surgeon.
Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly
I have been a patient of Dr. Symbas in the past and would never even look for another doctor. He cares and he listens and he thinks outside the box. There is nothing textbook about the surgical issues I require. Dr. Symbas welcomes the challenge and always keeps it real. He has a way of being who you need him to be. He puts you at ease with his first handshake. He answers questions and is tactfully truthful. He doesn't have the arrogance that so many docs have. I would (and do) recommend him to anyone considering any sort of plastic surgery.
Caring and highly competent surgeon an staff. Very kind & respectful interactions with surgeon and staff. Great results after breast cancer - correct aesthetic decision making.
Dr. Symbas made me feel extremely comfortable and confide the with the procedure. He gave me clear expectations for immediately following the procedure and the months after. I am thrilled with the outcome - Dr. Symbas did a fabulous job. Bed-side manner.
Due to my personal medical history as well as my job, I have met and dealt with many, many, physicians. Dr. Symbas has the best bedside manner of any physician I've know professionally and personally. He has been the most honest regarding what to expect during this time as well as the most concerned with my recovery.
I felt like the staff was not very knowledgeable. The nurse came in twice to take pictures. The second time....not realizing that she had already taken them. It wasn't until I said ...didn't we just do those.....that she realized they had already been done. Afterwards, she told me it was time to leave and a few minutes after I left I received a call from the Doctor asking me why I had left.
Dr. Symbas has a wonderful bedside manner. He is knowledgeable, kind, interested in your concerns, listening to what you have to say and answering all your questions with a calming demeanor.His staff was always available to answer questions after the surgery. Dr. Symbas stayed late to meet with my husband and answer questions. Dr. Symbas provided his cell number to answer questions both before and after surgery.
I love my new body. Everyone was very ready to help, Very respectful and smiling Dr. Smybas was Awesome
Love the attentiveness
Dr was very supportive. Was interested in my feelings and answered all my questions
I have no problem with this practice. Dr Symbas was very nice and I feel comfortable with him and I might do my BA with him but I have to see another surgeon next week to make a decision.
Because Dr. Sambas was absolutely wonderful to me and my family. He took the time to explain everything to my family and for me that was such a great thing to do.
They have the best team working on you!! I dont feel like people are looking at my face!!
Dr. Symbas is not only a fantastic surgeon but his bedside manners are off the charts. I have had multiple surgeries and will say that he the most compassionate doctor I have ever met. He takes time to discuss every question that you have. Bottom line, he makes you feel good!
I had a great experience and would highly recommend Dr. Symbas.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were exceptional, and made me feel so comfortable- from my consultation appointment to my post surgery appointments. Sarah was very helpful (and patient) answering all my CareCredit questions and with getting my surgery date set up. Cari is always welcoming to everyone who comes through the front door and is a great first point of contact when you walk in. Dr. Symbas has been the best and always made me feel comfortable, and was honest with what I should, and should not, have done. Whenever I had a concern during my recovery between appointments, I was able to reach out to him and would reply shortly after. Very happy with this practice and everyone who was apart of this experience! Thank you!
Dr. Symbas is the most caring and wonderful doctor. He makes you feel that you are his only patient. He gives you all of his attention and takes the time to tell you everything you need to know and to answer all of your questions. He is an amazing human being. I had a breast reconstruction due to cancer. Dr. Symbas took care of me from the moment I met him until I was 100% recovered. He did an amazing job. I feel very comfortable and happy the way I look.
Dr Symbas is amazing - skillful - compassionate - considerate - I can't say enough of how wonderful he and his staff are. It was overwhelming is an amazing way how accommodating and personable he / they are. I was blown away that he personally called me the night before to see if I had any questions as well as out me at ease! I LOVE them all!
Respect shown and consideration for my time and my understanding of the process.
Dr. Symbas and staff were amazing. I was never rushed or treated unkindly whenever I had questions that I thought weren't important (and I had a lot of those questions). I was in excellent hands the day of surgery with my nurse Brianna. She chatted with me like we were old friends. She was very caring and showed a great concern for my comfort. Dr. Symbas even called me the night before surgery to answer any questions or concerns I had. I was made to feel like I was his only priority. Before the surgery began Dr. Symbas came into my room and went over the procedure with me and my mom. He even held my moms hands and told her the he would take excellent care of me. I was in excellent hands with everyone I encountered at Atlanta Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery!!
Dr. Symbas is amazing. His professionalism and bedside manor are fantastic. Highly recommend him!
Dr. Symbas is the best! He is so kind and caring! Achieving the results I wanted.
First and foremost consideration was the skill of the surgeon,Dr. Symbas.In addition, Dr. Symbas is polite, kind and compassionate. I truly feel that he cares about his patient as if they were his family.The Staff are all efficient and friendly,yet always professional. The environment is very welcoming.Dr. Symbas and his staff are what true caring and service are all about.
I was very comfortable and felt like home Everyone was so nice and friendly
Very happy with outcome. Enjoyed the wonderful staff.
when surveys are designed there is a bit of ambiguous language, so questions like were you highly satisfied with your overall experience is not specific to Dr. Symbas. I've had 2 surgeries w/ Dr. Symbas and will have a 3rd. So if the question you asked was bypassing everything else that happened at Northside Hospital outside of just surgery and the same about Piedmont were you highly satisfied with your surgery performed by Dr. Symbas - i'd say yes! Out of my whole surgery team, he's hands down the best communicator upfront, best surgeon, & detailed about a plan after surgery. His team follows that lead from his PA to his office staff. I just can't answer on an overall experience because if an anesthesiologist is going to get out of her lane & try to insert an IV for a failing nurse staff, then fail miserably at it - kind of puts a damper on the day before you even get to surgery. hope that helps, : ) Jennifer
I could not be more thankful that I chose Dr. Symbas to do my surgery! The entire staff has been absolutely incredible from start to finish. You can tell that they really care, and they have made me feel confident about myself and my results. They've gone out of their way to make this a truly remarkable experience, and I would choose them again for any procedure in the future. I am able to wear clothes that I couldn't wear before. I can exercise and run, and I couldn't before. It has given me confidence!
Dr. Symbas and staff are simply amazing. They are straight forward, kind, personable, and compassionate! I had several reconstruction procedures with a different surgeon and was left feeling very disheartened with the results. Thanks to Dr. Symbas and his amazing team I now feel much more confident!
Dr Symbas was very compassionate and extremely attentive to my concerns.
The staff was so friendly and professional which made my visit calming and easy. Dr. Symbas explained in very simple terms the entire procedure along with pictures, diagrams and samples of products. He made my husband and myself feel very confident in our decision and with him as a good and compassionate surgeon.
All staff was very friendly, professional and helpful during all stages. Dr. Symbas was above and beyond to be caring, confident, concerned and always available.
My husband and I were HIGHLY pleased with our experience at Atlanta Plastic & Reproductive Specialists but most importantly, my surgeon, Dr. John Symbas. I had a mini" tummy tuck, breast augmentation and liposuction. We were VERY pleased with the final results thus far but most importantly would most definitely recommend Dr. Symbas to anyone looking to have plastic surgery. His bed side manner was amazing and we felt comfortable from the minute we met. "
Dr. Symbas is very compassionate and caring. He really listens to concerns.
I was very impressed with the speed of making my appointment, the staff and most importantly, Dr. Symbas. I felt immediately comfortable and at ease.
The pain level was very low and my recovery has been easy. From the beginning of my experience, Dr. Symbas was caring, considerate and listened to me. Because of his manner of being so present, he took away a lot of the fear for me about this process. It was easy to ask questions and he always took time to provide answers. His follow up after surgery has been the same - caring, considerate and complete. I will highly recommend him to friends and family for any type of surgery that he performs.
My huge apron is gone. No back pain, knee and hip pain gone!I have my energy and movement back! Hugely wonderful thing! . Dr. John Symbas is such an incredible physician as well as an amazinghumanitarian! He is the very best at what he does! I had a complex situation and he performed my surgery beautifully and treated me as though I were a member of his family. His surgery breathed life and hope back in me.Thank you Dr. Symbas. I am so thankful for you!P. S. The associates that are part of Dr. Symbas' team are fabulous people too!
Very friendly staff and doctor. I felt extremely comfortable, and would recommend doctor to all.
Dr. John Symbas is the kindest, most genuine surgeon I have ever met. (And I know A LOT of surgeons.)
I found Dr Symbas and his staff extremely professional, courteous, warm-welcoming-feeling of 'safe and in god hands' - 'bedside mannerisms' refreshing and comforting
My breasts and abdomen look incredible. It was overall a great experience. My breasts look amazing and so does my stomach. Dr Symbas is awesome
Staff was friendly and easy to talk to.
The staff and Dr. Symbas were great! I met with another physician so that's all I'm considering. With the costs entailed, I have to make that a consideration also.
I felt at ease discussing what I am interested in having done, the surgeon was very nice and honest with what he thought I should/ should not do, and no one made me feel uncomfortable.
Dr. Symbas! He's all around a great site on and he has a very good bedside manner. . Dr. Symbas and his staff are awesome. I have two small children and have been dealing with Reconstruction for more than two years. They are always accommodating when my kids come to the office with me. Dr. Symbas has always made me feel at ease and wowed me with his surgical skill. I followed him to this new practice because I couldn't bear the thought of changing providers.
I would have like to have seen pictures taken and what results would look like via drawings on computer, etc.
Dr. Symbass and his staff made me very comfortable, I would have liked a follow up call after my consult though.
I was always made to feel that I was very important in every part of my journey.
I am alive! Praying I never have to deal with this cancer again. Grateful dr symbas took care of me post surgery. Very grateful wound vac clinic helped treat post surgery infection from insulin pump. . Dr Symbas was caring and informative. Kind. His staff is first rate. Responsiveness to many needs was prompt and professional. The scar hides most of my earlier c section! I am concerned about lymphodema and breaking up the four and eight inch scar tissue to let lymphatic fluid climb from groin to armpit. thank you for your personal approach and hospitality.
The surgical staff day of surgery. i felt calm, prepared and fully trusted all of the individuals who were involved to make sure I was safe and taken care while I couldn't take care of myself. . Dr. Symbas is the best doctor I have ever had the experience working with in my entire life. He has an easiness about him, a calm approach, and a great listening ear. Dr. Symbas clearly loves what he does and creates beautiful bodies for those who have only dreamed of the perfect body. Dr. Symbas and his staff are always incredibly friendly and welcoming. Any question that is asked is always answered thoroughly with patience. When you think of surgery it typically has a negative connotation, not with this practice, they make the surgical process a pleasant one. Highly recommended!
Both my husband and I were HIGHLY impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of not just the surgeon but the entire staff. We were also so pleased and impressed with how I was not treated as just a number or another procedure but rather welcomed as almost like a member of the family". The surgeon made himself personally available via his cell which speaks volumes about his caring nature and concern for the patient. "
Referred by breast surgeon. Clinical staff-Sarah- very professional
For the most part I was very satisfied with my experience. Unfortunately, Dr. Symbas determined that I was not a good candidate for the surgery that I was interested in. He suggested a different surgery, which I was not interested in. I left disappointed, but not upset with Dr. Symbas. I felt that he was genuinely concerned for my wellbeing. I will have to consider whether I want to proceed with his recommendation.
Dr. Symbas was very concerned about my condition and my recovery. He understood my life style needs and structured my recovery around this. My coordinator was very in tune to my needs in finding a home health care nurse. I was able to return back to work and play healthy.
Outcome has been very good but still recuperating and feel the overall experience was very good. The hospital and staff were attentive and Dr. Symbas and staff were kind and understanding.Facilities were clean and bright, overall experience was great.
Very nice Doctor
Dr. Symbass is a sweetheart. very polite and nice. He listened to my request and got it all right. He is also very easy on the eyes. I has nice new perky breast.
From the time I entered the offices of Dr. Symbas, everyone was very courteous, attentive, and sympathetic to my concerns. Dr. Symbas spent a great deal of time explaining the procedure, etc. His P.A. and other staff members were also very thoughtful and kind. I was very impressed and highly satisified.
Dr Symbas is so charming and well educated. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge and honestly. I have already referred 2 of my friends to see him.. The staff is so friendly, which to me is 50% of why I choose to use Dr Symbas..
Dr Symbas is highly qualified. But more importantly he listened to me and my issue. He is very positive and friendly! He worked with me on the financial end. It was a very positive experience!
Dr. John Symbas is outstanding. . Excellent surgeon
I had a previous consultation with Dr. Symbas five years ago and appreciated his concern and thoroughness with my breast cancer reconstruction choices. I brought my daughter to him for an eye surgery consultation and we received the same thoughtfulness and explanation of what to expect for her eye surgery. Dr. Symbas was recommended by our dermatologist at Ga Skin Care Specialists.
Everyone was professional and answered all my questions
Dr. Symbas and all his staff were unbelievable.....the best of the best. His bed side manner by far out weighs any other Doctor I have ever had any experiences with. I can't thank him and his staff enough for everything they did for me.
Very professional, expedient and efficient, courteous and respectful.
the doctor and the practitioner who came in with him were extremely deliberate about making me feel comfortable and understanding my situation, they were able to comfort me and calm my nerves about the situation
I no longer have trouble in my day to day activities. I can sleep on my side with no problem and do my daily exercise without discomfort. I have stage 5 capsular contraction in my breasts. The physical appearance is 100% better as well. Dr. John Symbas is the most amazing surgeon. He took a difficult situation I had in a previous operation and completely revised my complications. I am still heeling but the results are close to perfect. I have recommended him already to 3 individuals for breast augmentation survey. His care, attention to the patients needs and overall surgical practices are wonderful. Thank you!
This was not an elective surgery. The office was very professional yet very personable.
Comfort, symmetry, great results from a surgeon who knows his stuff, is kind, and is a good communicator. I have had a great experience working with Dr. Symbas, I would (and have) highly recommend him to any woman looking for a surgeon to do reconstruction after surgery for breast cancer.
Dr. Symbas and his staff were very caring and helpful throughout the entire process.
Very professinal . Everyone
Dr. Symbas' reassuring and comforting bedside manner. Love love love Dr. Symbas and all the staff! I also love how my boobs turned out with implants!
Dr. Symbas was the most compassionate we've ever dealt with!
Very friendly environment. Lots of smiling faces which expressed a concern for patient.Surgeon was warm and welcoming, a great listener, and open to answering any questions proposed. Zero ego, yet confident and humble. He (Symbas) shared his cell phone number. When I felt like I wasn't getting answers I needed, I called him on his cell. He called me back, recognized and embraced my A" type personality and took the time to address all of my concerns. Excellent "bedside manner". Communication and treating people with respect by acknowledging concerns goes a long way. THANK YOU!"
Felt comfortable and staff was friendly
Breast Cancer is never easy to accept, however when I met Dr. Symbas he held both of my hands and looked into my eyes and said, WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER". I knew I had been blessed and placed in the right hands of a compassionate Surgeon who was concerned about me and my needs. "
The decision to have this third surgery was one that was difficult to make. I wasn't sure what the results would be and Dr. Symbas made no promises that it would help with the issues that I was having. I am extremely pleased with the appearance and the relief in the discomfort that I had been experiencing. I can wear clothes now without worrying about how I look and without being uncomfortable. This was my third surgery with Dr. Symbas and I had total confidence in his ability to provide the best outcome possible. He is always available to answer any questions I might have and is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have dealt with. I am very happy with the results and the care that I received during and after this procedure.
Everyone in the practice I came in contact with was very friendly and willing to assist me in any way possible. Dr. Symbas and his nurse were very compassionate to my needs as well as which procedure was best for my health. To me that is a sincere and caring doctor, and staff and I have been blessed by meeting them.
Doctor Symbas was very informative, and didn't come from a commission perspective. So it made his advice more valuable and trustworthy to me.
So much more comfortable . Dr Symbas is awesome! The staff was great!
listened to problems, gave clear explanations
After being diagnosed with breast cancer it felt like I was participating in a nightmare. I couldn't believe it was happening to me. The recommendation for a bi-lateral mastectomy seemed like such a barbaric way to treat some small, around a pea sized, lump. I don't remember that many details Dr. Symbas went over during my first visit, but I do remember asking many questions afterward. I'm sure I repeatedly asked the same questions at each visit. Everyone I encountered reacted to and treated me like it was the first time I had asked. I was always asked if I had any questions. And, I never once felt like I was being rushed so that the Dr. and staff could get to the next person. Also, the communication between Dr. Symbas, BCBS, and my Atlanta Breast Care surgeon was excellent. I didn't have to worry about any of the details. I hope no one has to have this experience, but I would happily recommend Dr. Symbas and staff to anyone!
Still healing but mostly pain free at this time. Still working to regain all normal life activities. . Dr. Symbas came highly qualified by Dr. Marino. I was extremely impressed by his compassion and professional manner. He took his time to explain what he had done and what to expect in the future. Very positive and confident. Thank you.
Well, my procedure was breast reconstruction due to cancer. Not exactly an elective surgery in the desire for cosmetic changes sense. Without this procedure, I'm sure I would have felt less whole", less of a woman, or, at the very least, I'd have been inconvenienced by having to wear a prosthesis and would have likely felt much more self-conscious sans breasts. Am I WHOLE-whole, as in normal-looking-breasts-whole? No. But I was not led to an expectation of such, so that isn't a "problem", per se. At least I feel like "normal" in clothes. And, really, getting used to how my breasts look and function (as in don't function) out of clothes is between me and me, and me and my husband. In other words, barring future nipple tattoo, I feel like Dr. Symbas got me as close to "good" as can be done under the circumstances. Judging by the after pics of others in my same situation, and the reactions of those "in the biz", it seems I've gotten a stellar result. So if I HAD to have breast cancer, I'm confident I have the best case scenario physically. Emotionally it will take time. ". My satisfaction with my experience is largely based on Dr. Symbas alone. He is a very genuinely caring individual, and he handled the sensitive nature of my procedure (breast reconstruction due to cancer) with warmth, concern, and a high level of professionalism. Because of my procedure, I had the opportunity to get to know Dr. Symbas over several months' time, which included 2 surgeries and several visits and procedures in between, so I feel qualified to speak to his nature. Engaging personality aside, he has terrific skills as a surgeon and I have what I understand to be a superior result, given by the reaction of him and the other doctors involved in my care. I knew what to expect throughout the process, and I felt like he really took the time with me during appointments, never making me feel rushed. Cancer is a scary time, and having to take so much of your life traveling to appointments and so forth, it is nice to not feel like just another patient, or a number", or any of the other sad-but-true cliche's. I found--and continue to find--Dr. Symbas VERY accessible. That is rare and comforting, to say the least. I've seen Dr. Symbas at 2 different practices, and had surgeries with him at 2 different hospitals. I enjoyed my interactions with the staff at both practices, and I felt well cared-for at both hospitals as well. I would say the only part of either process that made me feel like a "number" was some of the pre-op experiences. In particular, the intake portion of my pre-op at Piedmont Hospital was very cold and mechanical on the staff's part. I remember sitting in the waiting room after feeling sort of lonely and scared afterward. That said, the nurse who then did my bloodwork, etc, was utterly delightful and made up for the other part. Basically, I think the guy who did my intake was "over it" and/or hates his job, and it shows. But the fact that it stood out in the context of my entire journey speaks volumes about the good care I've been blessed to receive, and Dr. Symbas and his team were (are) a big part of that. I'm so grateful!
Dr. Symbas was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable about the procedure. He has great bedside manner". The surgery coordinator was also very nice and made the process easy to understand."
The Doctor is fabulous. The practice is lacking in preparing you for medical issues and/or expectations. Hospital and practice had two different sets of post op instructions that clashed. Disability paperwork that needs to be filled out by office was an inconvenience for them, and they charged me to do it. I have never been charged for that in all my life. Office Manager is responsible for all issues I had, not the Doctor...
Friendly and understanding.
Dr. Symbas made me so comfortable, answered all of my questions, and was very helpful when making my decisions. His knowledge and professional manner has made me feel much more comfortable with the surgery. His staff, especially his surgery coordinator Sarah, have been communicative, helpful, and all around wonderful to work with. I feel as if Dr. Symbas, Sarah, and the entire practice were good patient advocates with me to the insurance. Overall I have been highly satisfied with my experience and would recommend him in a heartbeat.
i was extremely satisified that Dr.Symbas was caring and compassionateabout helping me. I'm having a second reconstruction from mastectomy.He was very attentive and gave great explanation about the next steps I need to take.
Dr. Symbas was amazing. He was so personable and made me feel comfortable. He explained everything very well. His staff was also very good to me. I highly recommend Dr. Symbas!
I feel better about my appearance. When you are having any type of surgery done, you need to feel comfortable with the person doing the procedure. You need to know they care about you and your well being. That's Dr. Symbas. He's skilled, knowledgeable and most importantly, kind and caring.
Connection to the surgeon. Fabulous bedside manner."" Dr. Symbas could not have been more professional, personable and empathetic. A great experience! Thank you.
It let me know I have recurrent breast cancer and saved my life. Dr. Was outstanding
Every person I encountered at the office was very friendly and smiling. I was in a time crunch to get the surgery done and the patient care coordinator got me in for my consult, pre op visit, and surgery all in two weeks time. Not only did she make accommodations for me but I left feeling well informed with all my questions and concerns answered. The nurses were great too. Dr. Symbas was phenomenal! He listened to what I wanted and made me feel so comfortable with him that I did not feel the need to even go get a second opinion with another doctor or practice like I originally intended. I told him the size range I wanted and after surgery he said he went with the smaller one because of what I had said about wanting to look natural and proportionate and he said the pain would have been worse putting larger ones in. I am so happy with his decision and it made me feel good he listened and knew what I would want. I have already recommended him to anyone of my friends who are considering any surgery or procedure!
The doctor and nurses were very friendly and knowledgeable about the procedure. They answered all of my questions and helped calm me when I was nervous.
Dr. Symbas reconstructed my BFF's breast after masactomy and was awesome from the beginning to the end. I attended all office visits and watched him first hand. I chose him for my procedure due to his work and his love for his patients.
I haven't had my surgery yet but I have confidence in Dr Symbas. He was very thorough. My friend had surgery by dr symbas and she was extreamly satisfied.
Everyone was more than helpful and answered all the questions I had with reassuring answers
There are the kindest most gentlest caring individuals I had ever met in a long time ...the staff there are really really caring, at Marietta Plastic Surgery
For all of the reasons indicated in the survey
The Surgeon and Patient Coordinator were very thorough, answered all my questions. Gave me information on pros and cons. Showed photos of the types of breast shapes and explained the difference of the types of implants. Were very professional and friendly. Office staff were smiling and friendly.
I was very nervous about my breast augmentation procedure. The Anesthetist was wonderful! She saw that I was nervous and got my IV going right away I was afraid that the anesthesia would make me nauseous and it did not. Dr. Symbas has a wonderful bedside manner that helps his patients to feel at ease and well cared for. I was very pleased with my surgery experience.
I had a very positive and informative meeting with the surgeon as well as the other staff members. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. Greatly appreciated! Excellent experience.
The entire staff was extremely kind and knowledgeable. They made me feel at ease and it was the most fun I've had during a first office visit! Dr. Symbas made me feel he could give me an incredible result. He was very personable and kind. I didn't need to get a second opinion. I knew he would a perfect job!
I LOVE THIS PRACTICE ..
Dr. Symbas and his staff are AMAZING! The level of service they provide both before and after surgery was more than I had ever received from any physician's office. They listen to questions/concerns you may have and take the time to explain everything thoroughly. I would highly recommend them as well as would definitely return for other procedures if needed.
Dr. Symbas was absolutely wonderful. He made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend him to anyone. He knew listened to what I wanted and told me exactly what he thought I needed to do.
I think they did a great job
Dr. Symba and his team were really friendly and knowledgable. They made me feel really safe and confident. I am very pleased with my results. The doctor did a great job my tummy looks great! I cannot so enough how please I am my husband says I got my body back! The procedure was a walk in the park, I am so glad I made the choice to have a tummy tuck!
The Dr was great. From beginning to end , very professional, caring, made me very comfortable throughout the whole process.Shia nurses were great available when I had concerns.
Very professional staff .. Dr. Symbas makes you feel very comfortable and explains things extremely well.
Overall everyone was friendly and knowledgable. Nice and clean office space. My file and concerns had been reviewed before I was greeted which was nice that I didn't have to repeat myself. Would recommend.
I was very nervous when I arrived, because I've never had a plastic surgery consultation and have only had one surgery in my life. I felt like everyone there made an effort to help me feel comfortable and I left very happy about my decision. Everyone was so warm and welcoming.
Dr Symbas is simply the best at what he does! I never thought my breasts could possibly look as perfect as they do! I get compliments everywhere I go, and I pass out his business cards all the time. I have what I always wanted, and I'm truly amazed at how beautiful the results are. If you want a surgeon who will listen to everything you want, and everything you are concerned about, and then produce perfect results, Dr Symbas is the surgeon for you!
Please tell Dr. Symbas thank you and i owe him an excellent bottle of wine! Grazie
I felt I was prepared both with written materials and the preprocedure visits. I was always reminded to call if I had any concerns. My surgeon did a beautiful job and I got a fantastic result which exceeded my expectations.
Dr. Symbas was excellent and made me and my husband feel very comfortable about the procedure.
Because I am very pleased with my results. My surgeon is a master and very professional.
It was very informative
Dr. Symbas and his team have made me feel special during this whole process. He and his entire team have been so professional during this whole experience. They have answered all of my questions and I had a lot of them. We tried for several months to get the insurance to pay for this procedure and the staff worked with me every step of the way. Unfortunately, the insurance refused but I was able to come out of pocket with the money because that fees were reasonable. I am so glad I was referred to this practice!
Marietta Plastic Surgery took care of me very well. They provided me with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare for my procedure. They listened to my questions and concerns and made me feel very comfortable in making the decision of having surgery. I recommend their services to all my friends and family. I will only go to this practice from here on out.
I was highly satisfied !
The entire staff from the front office staff, patient coordinator to the surgeons I met with we're very kind, caring , informative and professional.
Everyone there was extremely hospitable.
Everyone was friendly and professional.
Dr.Symbas was awesome! He was honest, yet compassionate! Loved him! Tammy and Linda his nurse were AWESOME! I have recommended him to several friends that were highly impressed with my results!
Everyone involved was very professional, courteous, and efficient. Dr. Symbas was excellent.
This was my 3rd procedure with Marietta Plastic Surgery, other than additional appts for Botox a few times. I am extremely pleased, happy and always confident with Dr West. You guys have a great practice! Congratulations on your success!
Dr Symbus and his nurse treated me like I was special.
My friend had her procedures there and another friend is scheduled next month. I have seen the results and am very excited to have mine completed.
Everyone in this office is wonderful! I have had surgery by Dr. Symbas before and he makes you feel so comfortable. I wouldn't go to anyone else!! Can't wait to have my next procedure done with him.
Very nice and knowledgable staff. Shannon and Dr. Symbas were both great, and immediately put me at ease. They both gave me all the time needed and addressed each of my concerns....
Dr. Symbas was professional pertaining to my procedure and performed a phenomenal job!! The staff at the surgery center were helpful and thoro!! Thank you again for all your help!!!
This is the only surgery I will do - mark my words! I am scared of the pain and was grateful the staff and surgeon helped me with a procedure that I have wanted for a very long time. December 3rd is the date!
All in all I was very satisfied with my experience. I do intend to revisit what procedures to have that will give me the outcome I am looking for and that will also fit my budget.
Dr. Symbas has been very professional and easy to discuss the entire experience with and also has been very supportive. The entire staff Marietta and Woodstock have been extremely courteous and helpful.
Completely unsatisfied because I spent $5,300 on a breast augmentation and hate my results. I believed in my doctor and trusted that Dr.Symbus knew what he was talking about, but my results were nothing what I asked for.During my preop we both agreed on 425CC implants and he even asked again right before I went in the exam room, we'll when I got done the card I received said that my implants were 325CC and I waited for my next appointment to ask why in the world did he not give me what I asked for, he then explained. So this was the first unsatisfied result. After about 2 months my breast completely dropped back to where they were to start with....The whole reason why I got the surgery was to have perked up boobs not saggy breast that I already had now the even bigger and sag even more!!
I felt very cared for! Everyone was personable and it makes you feel relaxed
Dr. Symbas spent time answering all my questions thoroughly and was attentive to my concerns. He was honest when I asked questions he didn't have answers to (i.e., how to take time off work and tell co-workers) and worked to find others both in the office and former patients that he has worked with to talk to. He made me feel comfortable and beautiful, no matter what decision I made about moving forward with a procedure. He was open to my husband's questions and made us both feel at ease with the potential decision to work with him. The nursing staff was great, sharing their own experiences with surgery, which helped tremendously.
All individuals involved in my care were very nice & professional.
Dr. Symbas personifies the perfect doctor. He is honest and open with surgery details and what to expect with recovery. He truly respects his patients and listens to them in respect to their bodies and what makes them happy.
he was a great doctor
I have had previous surgeries with Dr. McNeal but was unable to see him when I needed the appointment this time so I saw Dr. Symbus. Although I like Dr. McNeal I am blessed that I was given an opportunity to meet with Dr. Symbus. He made me feel extremely comfortable. He is very professional yet down to earth which means more to me. I also enjoyed the staff in the Woodstock location and loved those who assisted Dr. Symbus during the surgery. Based on my experience before and now my experience with Dr. Symbus I can honestly say that he will be highly recommended as well as your facility. I look forward to speaking with him again during my next followup appointment.
Physician & staff very nice, professional, & caring.
Dr. Symbas and the MPS team were excellent pre, during and post my surgery. He thoroughly explained the procedure and went above and beyond during my post-op visits and recovery phase. He is one of the most attentive and compassionate physicians that I have seen.
Everyone Is nice and I feel like I chose them because of how comfortable I was and how professional it was.
I was made comfortable and like that I was given proper time by the surgeon. I hope the time and consideration is continued through the whole process.
Dr. Symbas was so nice and straightforward and made me feel so comfortable.
Dr. Symbas took plenty of time with me to explain my procedure, calm my nerves, and put my mind at ease. I felt very nervous when I arrived and had all of my questions answered and I felt confident that the procedure would be a success for my body type.
The physician and staff were very attentive to my desire for surgery and worked with me through the process in a very professional manner. Surgeon was absolutely the best and results are wonderful. Shannon was very helpful and Linda was excellent! Thanks to all.
Dr.Symbas is a caring, knowledgeable surgeon. He is revising a horrible incision scar from a prior abdominoplasty... that incision ripped open and infected which left a nasty scar. I am still scared to undergo yet another huge incision and I was worried that another procedure would raise the pubic line way too high. Dr. Symbas listened carefully to my concerns , found solutions and carefully explained them to me. I plan to do the surgery in Feb 2014. This will be my third procedure and my second with Dr. Symbas. I trust him 150\%.
The Dr. Symbas was awesome and the nurse made me fee very comfortable.Thank you guys
Doctor did not take consultation seriously, acted like my injury was not a big deal.
Prior to making my appointment I was very nervous on being able to find the perfect doctor and practice. Marietta Plastic Surgery made my experience absolutely wonderful. I felt well taken care of from the minute I walked in to the minute I walked out. All of the staff members I talked to were extremely friendly and took the time to answer any and all of my questions. I didn't have a long wait time, and Dr. Symbas thoroughly answered all my questions. I highly recommend him.
My expectations were exceeded
The doctor was very honest and sincere as were his staff.
We felt very comfortable and confident not only in the surgeon but in the staff on how we were treated.
Dr Symbas was easy to talk to and didn't seem in a hurry to leave the room. Answered all my questions. Staff was friendly. Easy to schedule consultation and worked around my schedule for actual procedure.
I had such a good experience and always felt very well cared for and listened too. Any concerns I had were addressed and I was put at ease.
Plastic surgery is something I said I would never" do. A friend of mine had a breast reduction and encouraged me to make a consult. I was incredibly nervous at my first visit, and I made my husband come with me. Dr. Symbas was not pushy or arrogant. He was very friendly & he totally put my mind at ease. The nurses were amazing. When we left our consult, my husband and I felt such a peace about the whole procedure. We scheduled my surgery right away. I am SO thrilled that I went through with it. Not only does Dr. Symbas have a great bedside manner, he is an excellent surgeon. I have recommended him and this practice to my friends. I have to say, from the front desk to the operating room, I was treated with such care and priority. I felt like the most important person in the building. I also appreciate that no matter how many questions I had or how many times I called the office, (should my tape be peeling off? there's a tornado warning and I can't sleep, what should I do? seriously - I called with the craziest things) they always made me feel validated and answered every question sincerely. Needless to say, I'm HIGHLY satisfied & so thankful for Dr. Symbas and his team."
Dr. symbas was amazing. He made me feel very comfortable everytime I saw him. I recommend him to everyone and will definitely be back if I decide to have any more procedures.
Dr. Symbas was very caring, he listened to my concerns and made sure he knew exactly what I wanted (and didn't want) he did an excellent job of choosing what was best for my body size and I am completely happy with the outcome. I think he is a wonderful surgeon and I have already recommended him to others:)
I was mislead by the patient coordinator in regards to the augmentation and the lift compared to just the lift. Based on her comments alone, I made my discision to just have the lift. Due to her comments, I had to have the argumentation after the lift, which meant two separate surgeries as well as two separate times dealing with pain and recovery. Very dissappointed with her professionalism. Have only positive things to say in regards to dr symbas
Everyone is friendly at this office! Dr. Symbas is very professional and just wants you the patient to feel comfortable in his office and comfortable with the decisions you are making. I am definitely planning on having this procedure done this summer and feel very confident in Dr. Symbas's ability to make me feel like one in a million! :)
Even before I walked in the office for the first time the patient coordinator made me feel like at home and at ease just by talking on the phone. The office staff was very personable and that is very important to me when choosing a doctor to do this procedure. When I went to my first comsultation the nurse, doctor, patient coordinator were all very informative and patient with me when having to make a decision of what type of implants.
Dr. Symbas is so sweet and listens so well. He's a very knowledgable doctor.
My surgery was very successful. I am completely satisfied with the results.
Everything went smoothly, with no major complication. Everyone was nice and informative and made me feel as comfortable as possible leading up to, during and after surgery. Recovery was great best sleep I've had in a really really long time. I still have one more follow-up and am only two months out from surgery so there's still healing to do but I think everything is going good.
The doctor and his staff listened and thoroughly answered all my questions and addressed my concerns and I am very pleased with the outcome of my procedure and the follow-up provided.
Dr. Symbas explained procedure in great detail and I did not get the feeling I was being rushed" through the consultation. "
Dr. John Symbas is an excellent doctor. I was extremely nervous about my breast reduction surgery but he made me feel at ease. I had to contact him twice after surgery with one of them being on a Sunday. He called me back within the hour and was able to efficiently answer my question and called in a pain medication prescription. Before and after my surgery he was open, an attentive listener and was able to satisfy my worries and concerns. While I don't expect to need any other plastic surgery, I would defn come back to him and would readily and highly recommend Dr. Symbas to anyone else that needed surgery. Thank you.
Referral from another patient. Time physician spent with me at consult.
My surgery experience was highly satisfactory. Dr. Symbas and his staff were the best. My results are beautiful and very natural. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would definitely recommend Dr. Symbas to any of my friends who are considering having any of the procedures he offers.Thank you to everyone in the office and especially Dr. Symbas!
Very friendly practice. Enjoyed meeting them all.
The surgeon was pleasant and informative. Didn't make me feel rushed which sometimes happens. Day of procedure, surgeon and nurse that assisted was very friendly and accomodating. I would return and refer others!
The staff was very helpful and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Symbas was so nice and very informative, he answered all my questions and took a lot of time with me. I would definitely recommend him and MPS.
Every person we encountered went above and beyond to answer any and all questions. They were all very patient with us and made us feel valued. I never felt like we were a burden. The follow up and communication was amazing!
Everyone was very professional and friendly. Made sure that all questions were answered. Overall, I was made to feel very comfortable.
Process was smooth and efficient.
The wait time after check-in and subsequent wait time in the patient room was about a half hour (for a 10 minute pre-surgical consult for a minor repair) which much longer than I expected especially since there were no other patients in the waiting room and only one other patient in the waiting room when my consult was complete.
Dr. Symbas wa amazing. I loved his profesinal personality and how sweet he was. He made me feel so comfortable. I got a lower price somewhere else but I loved dr. Symbas so much I am willing to pay extra just to do business with him.
Dr. Symbas and his patient coordinator were above and beyond amazing. They both made me feel very comfortable in what should be a very awkward situation.
The wait time for the initial consulation after check in was very long. Apparentely, someone made a scheduling error. Other than that one thing, everything else was fine. Dr. Symbas was exceptional!!
I had a really good experience. I loved my doctor he really made me feel comfortable along with the rest of the staff. My boobs look great. I wish I had done it years ago!
Due to computer issues, the practice was unable to confirm my consultation appt or send me the information they said they would prior to my appt. The staff was very friendly though and made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Symbas performed an excellent neck and lower face lift on me. He was very professional and personal in explaining the procedure and info. during follow-up visits. I developed a DVT in my leg a week after surgery and after notifying the office, Dr. Symbas called two nights in a row to check on me.
All aspects of my care met my individual needs and the care given was second to none. Very obvious Dr. Symbas does his best at everything he does and all the patient care is understanding and sincere.
Dr. Symbas did exactly what I asked. He listened to what I wanted and I got exactly that. The entire staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. I've referred several friends to the practice and especially Dr. Symbas. One has already had surgery and the other is scheduled for Jan 2013!
Dr Symbas made me feel very comfortable and he is very personable. He took time to listen to my concerns and answered any questions I had. He even called me before my surgery to reassure me that everything would be fine when I had some last minute concerns. I would definitely refer him to anyone and would definitely choose him again if I decided to have any other procedures. He was great!
Extremely embarrassed to have this procedure done but Dr. Symbas has made the experience much more tolerable than I ever would have expected. And could not have asked for a more compassionate and comprehensive doctor.
The consistent attention to detail and true consideration for my individual needs with regard to the specific surgeries, injections, and after care. The cleanliness and comfort of the surgical center. The honesty and integrity of the surgeon and his immediate staff members. I have had enough experience with other plastic surgeons and can not imagine ever pondering consulting with any other plastic surgeon.
Everyone was so nice and helpful. I felt at home every time I went there for a visit.
Dr. Symbas listened to what I wanted, didn't pressure me to change my size choice, and the final product was great.
I was somewhat nervous about the surgery, never having had surgery before and using a new doctor to the practice made me really apprehensive, but Dr. Symbas was all I cod have hoped for. He is very professional, and knew exactly what I wanted. I was and still am very happy with the results, he did an out standing job and although I should keep it to myself, I tell everyone! I would absolutely do it again. And probably in the future WILL do something else:). Love you Dr. symbas!
Loved Dr. Symbas!! He was respectful, informative, friendly, helpful, etc... All before and after the surgery. Totally HOT too! ;)
Every aspect of the procedure that I was considering was explained in detail. I was able to talk to the surgeon for as long as I needed to, even asking him to come back in after the consultation because I thought of a few more questions. I was never made to feel like I was a bother or that the surgeon didn't have time for me. The office was clean and staff friendly and competent.
Consultation was VERY informative. Doctor never seemed rushed, answered all our questions, never made me feel stupid which some doctors have before, took a lot of time to make sure we were well informed. I felt they all went above and beyond taking extensive time with us!
Dr. Symbas is a highly certified and a phenomenal surgeon as well as a great person and was easy to talk to and he makes you feel very comfortable. The staff is friendly and makes you feel at home. I will never go anywhere else.
