Every person that I interacted with was friendly, receptive and professional. I felt welcomed and heard.


Dr. Symbas is a skilled surgeon with a caring and attentive personality. His contouring has provided impressive results at the 3 month mark. I've regained my pre-pregnancy waist, have fuller breasts, and a butt for the first time in my life! He and his staff are amazing, and I felt 100% comfortable throughout the process. Grateful to have crossed paths.

Hand Surgery

Dr. Symbas was very professional and an expert.

Breast Lift

The experience was great until I realized we did not walk through everything again the day of surgery... 1 is still bigger than the other and I wish they were bigger.

Breast Augmentation

The surgery came out all right but not what I expected or told what I was going to get. I made it very clear to the office before hand I wanted the least amount of scarring. I originally asked for the surgery through my armpits but they told me the best way was under the breast and that it would be right at the crease but mine is very far from the crease and is very visible and I hate it.


Nice clean facilities. Staff was very attentive and provided all the information I needed. The doctor was very thorough and made me feel comfortable.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Symbas and his staff went above and beyond to make me feel confident that I had made the right choice in having them replace my implants. He and his staff are so caring. Very happy with the revision and would highly recommend them.

Wonderful doctor great experience.

Lipoma Removal

The surgery was quick and pain free. On my follow up appointments, I did not have to wait in the waiting room and was taken back quickly.

Breast Augmentation

Staff and Doctor are very personable, patient and explained in detail the procedure on each surgery. Having cancer is scary enough without going into surgery. LOVE them.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Symbas is a kind, caring doctor who strives for perfection with his patients. He's been with me every step of the way through my complications. He has stood by me and continually goes above and beyond to ensure I'm getting the best possible procedures and care. He has called numerous times to check on me and always responds to my text or calls. He's an outstanding doctor.

Dr. Symbas has always been a great doctor. I drive an hour just to see him, and even if I have to travel longer to see him for an appointment, I will. He cares for his patients.
