Dr. Symbas and the nurses were extremely helpful and kind. They made me feel at ease by explaining the surgery with all details. They were supportive and helped me make a decision about my surgery.

I felt very comfortable with the staff and Dr. Symbas. I was embarrassed to be there, but they answered all my questions and made an uncomfortable situation not so bad.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

[Highly satisfied] because everyone is so nice and personable. And, they are skilled. No bruises.

Dr. Symbas was very comforting, informative, and gentle. He answered all of my questions before I had the chance to ask! He did a great job guiding me with my decision about sizing and placement. I knew immediately I wanted him to perform my surgery.

Tummy Tuck Revision

Well mostly the reason I was highly satisfied is because Dr. Symbas took the time to listen to me and what I really wanted. And the girl that helped him I can’t remember her name... but Dr. Symbas, her, and the rest of the team were really wonderful and kind and knowledgeable about what they were doing.

I found Dr. Symbas to be patient and genuinely interested in my expectations during our initial consultation. Going forward he continued to impress me during the pre-op, surgery and post-op experiences. The team was terrific throughout the entire process and I always felt confident with my decision to use this practice. I had some post op challenges with lumps & bumps around my eyes. Dr. Symbas would consistently treat me in a pleasant way - never becoming frustrated with my 3 return visits.

Breast Implant Revision

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


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