John Symbas, MD Reviews (315)


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.

Eyelid Surgery

I felt very comfortable and confident in the doctor.

Tummy Tuck

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.

Eyelid Surgery

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

Mommy Makeover

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.

Neck Lift

Paperwork was absurd

Tummy Tuck

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

Face Lift

Very pleased

Breast Lift

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

Breast Augmentation

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.

Body Lift

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!

Mommy Makeover

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!

Breast Reduction

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!

Male Breast Reduction

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.

Breast Reduction

All the staff were exceptionally helpful and available.

Eyelid Surgery

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.

Breast Reconstruction

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.

Fat Transfer

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.
