John Symbas, MD Reviews (423)


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.


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.

Breast Reconstruction

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.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

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.

Breast Reduction

Loved the staff they were very helpful thru the whole process, especially Dr. Symbas loved him... very friendly made me feel comfortable and put me at ease when I was nervous... overall a great experience!! Thank you.

Tummy Tuck

I’m thrilled with my results. After 3 kids and secret diastasis I couldn’t be happier with my new body! I’ve never been more confident!

Breast Lift

Very professional.

Laser Vein Treatment

Dr. Symbas advised laser treatment and was transparent about not having capacity in-house in his previous practice. So, he arranged for someone to bring machine in for 3 treatments there and another in his new practice. I had a problem and he made treatment accessible and affordable and successful.

Breast Augmentation

I knew from the first consultation that Dr. Symbas would be my surgeon. I had seen 3 other doctors and no one made me feel as comfortable as him. He was kind, listened to my thoughts, and explained the process in great detail. I booked my appointment the next day! It has been about 2.5 months since my surgery and my results are everything I wanted! It didn’t feel like I was having surgery. I felt very comfortable and cared for. I was not nervous or scared because of my experience.

Tummy Tuck

I was satisfied with my procedure because the doctor was very personal and understanding with me about what I wanted my results to be. He talked to me about it in detail. The doctor was able to help me obtain what I was looking for with surgery.

Tummy Tuck

Great doctor, nice and friendly staff. The outcome was everything I expected.

Arm Lift

I have had surgery with Dr. Symbas before. He and his staff make me so comfortable and positive about going through a surgery. I have no worries that this future experience will be any different.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Symbas and his entire team are wonderful. Everyone I have encountered is knowledgeable, kind and caring. They provided excellent guidance and information in advance of my surgery, and did so much to make me feel comfortable when I was very nervous following a cancer diagnosis. Options and pros/cons of each were explained fully so I could make the best decision for my circumstance and preferences, and similarly when I didn't have an option that was explained as well. Surgery went well and the team continued to provide top-notch care and advice throughout my recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Symbas! [Single best thing is...] The kind and caring team. They were all so patient, and I always felt like they were completely focused on me when I was with them. The care and concern was apparent with every encounter.

Face Lift

Dr. Symbas is very personable and put me at ease. He previously removed a cyst from my face and I was extremely happy with how it went. Liked the fact that he has his own surgery facility.

Neck Lift

Considering the situation of having to take over and step into Mark Codner's practice, under the circumstances, things were amazingly smooth. Dr. Symbas is extremely knowledgeable, comforting, and patient. After the time he took to explain the procedure, I committed that day.
