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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

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.

Tummy Tuck

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!

Eyelid Surgery

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.


Grate reviews

Neck Lift

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.

Neck Lift

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.

Neck Lift

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.

Breast Lift

Dr. Symbas and his staff are so kind and caring.

Treatment / Procedure

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.
