Doctor Smoot and the entire staff were amazing. I felt comfortable right from the start and I’m so so happy with my results. They took great care of me and I have nothing but positive things to say about my procedure.
The surgery made me look brighter and less tired looking. I felt more alive looking. Younger too! [Single best thing is...] The group of people that I interacted with and the Doctor were great!
Everyone was super knowledgeable and comforting about the surgery I wanted. There was no pressure or rush on anything. Very easy and nice people to communicate with. I can’t wait to get my surgery!
Everything was explained thoroughly and all my questions answered! Staff is so friendly! Dr. Salazar Made me feel comfortable about the surgery and added his suggestions to make me look even better.

Dr. Saltz and the staff made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. They were knowledgeable about the procedure and answered all my questions regarding the right size and type of implant. I left with all my questions answered and am very excited about my upcoming surgery.
Dr. Saltz was very friendly during my consultation. She was also very informative about the different types of silicone implants I was asking about. She got me so excited for my procedure!
The outcome surpassed my expectations. The surgery center and staff were professional and supportive. Dr. Saltz has an amazing eye for balance and gave me the waist/hip ratio of my dreams. My bellybutton is also one of my new favorite body parts.
The staff was very friendly and the environment was comforting. I really enjoyed Dr. Saltz, she made me feel at ease and listened to all my questions carefully.
Dr. Saltz and her team have made me feel comfortable and excited about my procedure from the very beginning. I feel that I am heard, understood and genuinely cared for. I knew very early on that I 10000% wanted my surgery performed here and nowhere and with no one else!
Dr. Saltz was amazing, she made me feel comfortable. She made the whole experience amazing. Dr. Saltz knows what she’s talking about. I highly recommend her, she’s the best. [Single best thing is...] Since I got there everyone was so sweet and kind. The staff was amazing.
She was very well informed and professional. Through it all she was very good natured.
The facilities at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center are exquisite. I felt completely comfortable and was very impressed at how well appointed the consultation room and waiting rooms were. All of the members of the staff who I interacted with were helpful, friendly and knowledgable.
[Highly satisfied with] the professionalism and the overall experience and quality the the results. [Single best thing is...] The end results are more than I had expected.
I think Dr. Wheeler takes his time to explain what he can do for me. I did not feel rushed. I trust him because I have used him before.
Dr. Smoot listened to what I thought were the main issues, his recommendations were understood. Clearly described (summary, not technical) the procedure and desired result.
Dr. Smoot's office is always very accommodating known him for 30 years. I had implants with him on 2 occasions. Now I need them removed and a lift performed and I trust him and his staff with my care. I am traveling from Georgia. That is how much I trust him.
Dr. Smoot is very professional. He listened to my concerns and was very helpful.
All Doctors and Nurses introduced themselves prior to my surgery and made sure I felt as comfortable as possible. [Single best thing is...] The comfort provided to me from the staff.
Everyone was so nice and welcomed me here. [Single best thing is...] The nurse went over everything that was going to happen, that helped me a lot.
This is my second surgery with Dr. Brahme. He is wonderful and the staff and office are the best! Would highly recommend him to anyone and will only go here! [Single best thing is...] Went as explained, very thorough.
Low pain. Comfortable setting. Personal touch in pre and post op care. [Single best thing is...] My self confidence is much higher.

Dr. Salazar is amazing. He made me feel comfortable from the first visit and I felt in control the whole time. The clinic is clean, runs on time, and the nursing staff is friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable upon arrival for my surgery. The nursing staff took the time to answer all questions, walk me through the process, and I felt safe.
The doctor was very informative about the procedures and knowledgeable. I like how he asked all the right questions. No pressure kind of clinic which I like.
Excellent surgeon, Brahme. Everyone in office is courteous and knowledgeable. [Single best thing is...] I felt I was in the best hands possible.
The office is beautiful! Everyone is extremely professional, they all make you feel welcomed and comfortable. Dr. Saltz and nurse Ruth work extremely well together. Dr. Saltz is amazing, she listened to what I wanted, she gave me her professional feedback and opinion and When I woke up from surgery she said to me with confidence, ‘you’re going to be very happy!’
I had a great consultation with Dr. Brahme! I went in nervous and came out reassured and really excited for my future surgery. Dr. Brahme and his nurse are a great team! Thanks for making me feel comfortable.
I received a date for my initial consultation immediately, within 2 days. I was treated with respect and understanding. The results were amazing.
Dr. Saltz performed my initial and second breast augmentation. Both times I was highly satisfied with the result. She is compassionate at giving the desired result. I knew what to expect from having been a previous patient
I just got done a tummy tuck in 12 weeks ago with Doc. Salazar. I am so happy with my procedure I really recommended him. I fell so great no pain at all.
I’m surprised with the results my sister had a tummy tuck a few months ago and she is looking pretty good I’m so excited for my procedure coming up soon
Dr. Wheeler had a kind professional manner. Made me feel comfortable. Informative.

Everyone was really friendly and made me feel comfortable for every appointment. They answered all of my questions and allowed me to voice any concerns. They were prompt and professional throughout the whole process.
Needed to have breastfeeding removal.
Dr. Saltz made me feel extremely comfortable from the moment she enters the room. Her nurse Ruth is so direct but funny! You just know you are in great hands.
Dr. Wheeler and Rachel were very informative and approachable. Waiting to hear why I was considering plastic surgery before they had recommendations.
Dr. Smoot and his staff made me feel 100% comfortable and I knew despite a fluke complication, I knew I was in the BEST care. When I was dissatisfied with the end result after my second surgery, Dr. Smoot allowed me to change my implant size at no additional cost to ensure I was satisfied. I am 110% happy with the end result now!
Previous breast surgery with Dr. Smoot. Very informative and provided all information and options for my situation. Friendly, efficient staff.
My Dr., Christina and Riana are the best Great result :)
Very easy to make an appointment. Staff extremely friendly. Doctor very matter of fact and honest and knowledgeable
I felt like Dr. Brahme's nurse told me what I wanted to hear. Doesn’t seem as if her and the doctor were on the same page. Also was not happy with patient care provided on the day of procedure.
With my sensitive procedure request I felt accepted and my communication was heard. I felt comfortable and was well informed with a high level of support continuously. I feel more confident, and am no longer in pain or uncomfortable on a daily basis.
Real friendly staff. Answered all my questions, so I felt confident.
I am highly satisfied with results of my surgery and I knew I would because I liked and trusted Dr. Salazar. I trusted his sense of aesthetics, he really helped me understand what to expect, and what was possible to achieve given my anatomy and my life style. He was very friendly and patient, I liked his office, and I thought all of the written materials were thorough and clear. I felt very comfortable going into surgery in terms of knowing I'd be in great hands physically with Dr. Salazar and the medical staff (nurse, anesthesiologist etc). I had a great experience with all office staff leading up to the surgery and after during follow up appointments. I'm honestly more satisfied than I thought I would and only wish I would have met Dr. Salazar earlier! The whole process was fun and not stressful.
I really connected with Dr. Saltz & her nurse. What they said made sense and they both took a lot of time with me.
Everyone from the check in staff to the nurse and doctor treated me with respect. They addressed my concerns as I’m a male to female person and they calmed my anxiousness
Very informative and caring. Options provided with visuals
Dr. Brahme is very honest and direct. He puts the patience interests first. He's done my 2 breast augmentations, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck and face lift.
They answered all my questions. They are very knowledgeable. They really listened.
I loved the entire staff I encountered, very friendly, interested in me, caring, making sure I was fully informed along the way. I felt I could rely on them with questions at any time. I was impressed that the pain level was much lower than I had expected. I was given plenty of information beforehand and experienced no abnormal results or complications.
Great experience from start to finish. Totally natural results! I’m having fun with my new appearance
Quality of care, genuine concern for me, responsiveness and of course my results! My results are phenomenal!
The whole experience was a high class one working with La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center. The nurses were kind and took their time to make me understand the process and help me feel comfortable. Dr. Brahme clearly knows what he is doing and I trusted that he would make me look and feel the way that I wanted to. After surgery, my nurse reached out to me the day after and fairly often during the following weeks. I healed quickly and look great! I would highly recommend LJCSC to anyone who would be interested in cosmetic procedures.
One of the reasons why I was highly satisfied with my experience, is because my doctor, Dr. Salazar, was very patient, polite and informative. His assistant, Carmen, and Dr. Salazar were both caring and they would always ask me how I was doing and made me feel very comfortable. The receptionist are also very kind towards me.
I felt the office was very professional and friendly. I have known Dr. Wheeler for many years and have had a number of procedures by him. He is conservative in his technique so the end result is very natural looking which I really appreciate.
Dr. Wheeler was very professional, and he is an artist! He can make very realistic results. And couldn’t be happier with the results!
The doctor and his nurse were very attentive. They listened to what I had to say and what I wanted. They gave me suggestions, too!
Since the moment I walked in I felt very comfortable. The whole time they made me feel safe.
Dr. Smoot and his staff were highly professional. They took the time to make sure that we understood the procedures and risks. We were seen on time and moved efficiently through the office without feeling rushed.
Friendly professional warm atmosphere. I felt heard and my questions were answered. I even had follow up questions via email later that were answered promptly.
Dr. and entire staff were kind, informative, polite and helpful. All my questions were answered properly. And my procedure was fully explained to me.
The staff are all so welcoming. Everyone makes sure to answer your questions and makes you feel at ease. Highly recommended!
Everything was thoroughly explained in detail.
After my consult with the doctor and his nurse (who were wonderful), I met with a woman in an office. She told me she would follow up with me and I have not heard from her since.
From the moment I walked into the office for my consultation, I felt comfortable. Dr. Smoot and his team took a surprisingly long amount of time to listen to what I wanted for my body and then thoroughly explained how he could help me achieve that look. I left the consult feeling well educated, confident and most importantly, heard. The surgery went smoothly, I felt safe and well cared for the entire time. Post op went well and I met with Dr. Smoot multiple times during my recovery. He was fantastic and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking at plastic surgery.
Dr. Saltz and the team is highly professional, I’ve used their office and I’m always impressed with my results and the professionalism of the staff!
It was a very nice and clean place to get my boobs done. The doctor and nurse were very helpful with everything I asked. I was happy with the outcome of my breast augmentation.
Dr. Wheeler and his staff are so kind and compassionate. Dr. Wheeler is one of the best in his field and I couldn’t be happier with my results. It is so natural and not overdone. I look 15 years younger. He really listens to his patients. Thanks Dr. Wheeler!
Dr. Saltz and Ruth were so awesome! I loved Ruth’s energy and the fact that she took the time to get to know a little bit about me. Dr. Saltz was very knowledgeable and they both gave great suggestions.
Dr. Saltz and her team were very informative, knowledgeable, and friendly. They answered all my questions and even some I didn't know to ask. Surgery was fast and smooth, and my breasts look and feel awesome!
I felt listened to and respected. The surgeon and staff are friendly and helpful.
I absolutely loved the staff and how open and honest everyone was. I appreciated how comfortable everyone made me feel. I felt that Dr. Saltz was understanding what I was going through.
Nurse Ruth and Dr. Saltz makes an amazing team. They're honest, and fun while being professional. They're great listeners, on giving you want you want.
Dr. Salazar was very attentive, listened and answered all of my questions. He and his team were amazing and I could not had asked to had gone through this process with anyone else! Thank you!
Everyone that I came in contact was smiling, considerate, and had a truly caring demeanor. Every effort was made to make me feel comfortable and welcome. The positive approach that all embraced was appreciated.
Dr. Brahme is very kind and truly listens to his patients about what can be achieved in surgery. He is highly skilled with experience. He gives you hope in his ability to improve your body and build your self esteem. He communicates very well and I did not feel hurried. Thank you Dr. Brahme!
Doctor Salazar and nurse Carmen are very friendly and professionals, they took the time and gave me and my husband a thorough explanation for the procedure. They made us feel confident about me been in good hands.
Dr. did an Amazing Job. The Nurses and Everyone made me feel comfortable. They checked up on me multiple times during recovery.
No waiting for my appointment. Dr. and nurse attentive and knowledgeable. Easy recovery from breast lift.
Doctor Salazar and group answered to all my questions and took the time for that. The results are showing up everyday and I’m pretty happy after my second month after operation so far. They make you feel pretty comfortable. Great team! Thank you!
My results are exactly what I wanted. All of my questions were answered throughout the process, and an issue that arose after surgery was resolved right away. [Single best thing is...] My results!
Everyone made me feel confident I’d made the right choice. Everything felt seamless. I’m having my surgery in about an hour and feel comfortable. I appreciate their help in my breast revision.
I received exceptional care from the staff at Dr. Smoot's office. From the first consult to the followup calls after surgery, they have shown true concern. The staff listens and follows through. My surgery was a true success and I couldn't be happier with my results. This is my second surgery by Dr. Smoot, I have complete trust that I will be happy with any procedure I should have in the future. [Single best thing is...] Knowing that I was receiving care that I didn't have to worry about making sure things were going to go as planned... The staff keeps things running so smooth
Very knowledgeable staff. Dr. Saltz made me feel very comfortable and explained everything very well.
I was very happy with my body before, although I am glad that the stretch marks and pooch are gone, I also had tightening of the muscles, so I no longer have back pain. Overall, the staff, Dr. Brahme's bed side manner. Dr. Brahme did a great job on my tummy tuck, liposuction of the flanks and eye lid surgery. I'm happy so far with the results. I just hope that the numbness and tightness goes away and the scar will diminish with time, only issue was my belly button piercing wasn't removed and I have some dimpling on the ends of where the incision ends. Staff was very nice and helpful, including his nurse Christina.
The results were amazing, the staff was wonderful and the follow-up care was great. I got exactly the results I wanted and Dr. Brahme is very kind.
Dr. Saltz and her team of nurses are AMAZING! They made the entire process very comfortable and took the time to answer all questions and were very helpful.
I am very comfortable at the center. Everyone I have talked to spends the time to make sure my questions are answered to my satisfaction. I feel the doctor is knowledgable and listened to my concerns and what I wanted. They were very clear about what I needed to do prior to and after my surgery.
Dr. Brahme is an excellent surgeon. I was a little scared about how the scar would look like, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. The scar is super low and thin!
What really made the overall experience satisfying was Dr. Salazar's warm and attentive demeanor during every visit. He really listened to what I wanted and the reasons behind why I wanted the surgery. My nurse Carmen also made the experience enjoyable. Carmen eased my fears and was with me every step of the way.
The staff is helpful, understanding and work hard to make things happen. Dr Roark was my surgeon, but Dr. B was my follow up and didn't hesitate to say you look great, but follow up with a treatment below and to feel free to come back if I had questions. My future daughter in law was the reason I choose LJCSC. She encouraged me based on knowing me and you were great. I was really scared and not sure if I wanted to follow through with the procedure, but am thrilled I did. My neighbor actually made an appointment and had a facelift right after I did. He and I had joked about this for a long time, but after seeing me and meeting with DJ and Dr. Roark he was all in. The worst thing is parking !!
From the moment I walked in the door I was impressed with the appearance of the office and professionalism and friendliness of the staff. The nurse, Carmen was especially nice and down to earth. She was easy to talk to and she listened to everything I had to say. My doctor was very attentive and was also a great listener. He was very informative and friendly as well. I felt like everything I said mattered. And all of my questions were answered confidently. I had several consultations with different doctors before my appointment with this office and once I met Dr. Salazar-Reyes and his nurse Carmen, I made up my mind instantly that this is the team I will do my surgery with. Due to having children, I have to make arrangements to have the surgery done and I’m excited for that time to come!
I am highly satisfied with the results. Everything went smoothly and I felt pain free. I love the staff.
I experienced a high degree of body image satisfaction after eyelid surgery. My peripheral vision improved.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth took care of me from beginning to end. From the moment I first went in for my consult, I had a sense of peace coming in. The complimentary teas and snacks were a nice touch as way to relax. Dr. Saltz listened to my requests and followed through until the end of surgery. I was so impressed with her work and dedication. Ruth does not fall behind with her attention and constant care. I am very happy with my procedure and extremely happy with my breasts!! I love how my body looks. My breasts now compliment my body so much more. It's not too much and not too little. I look at them every day and I just love the way they look and how it makes me feel! So happy!
Very thorough. Seemed very Knowledgeable. Great experience.
Dr. Brahme and his staff strive to make your experience a positive one. They check in on you before and after the surgery. If there are any extraordinary complications he will see you everyday if needed until everything is resolved. If he's not available he will make sure one of the other DR's see you. He has a pleasant demeanor and will always take the time to answer questions you may have. Doctors, Nurse and office staff are pleasant and work together as a team for the patients success.
Dr. Salazar made me feel comfortable as he took the time to listen to me and what results I was looking to achieve. He is very friendly and attentive. He aims to give very natural personalized results.
Dr. Saltz did a great job with my breast augmentation and lift. She was always available with any questions or concerns I had and I love the finished product.
My daughter [name] recently had breast augmentation. She is beyond thrilled with the results. She looks and feels fantastic! We couldn’t be happier with Dr Wheeler and his staff. Everyone was so nice and Professional. They really made the whole experience nice for her.
Dr. Wheeler and his staff at LJCSC were awesome! Everyone made me feel so comfortableand made my surgery experience there so amazing. I am very satisfied with the resultsand would highly recommend them to anyone.
I had begun the process of getting implants 14 years ago when I first visited Dr Saltz. I was very impressed with her was planning to go ahead with my surgery when I became pregnant with my son. Fast forward 14 years and I had to come back to her to get my implants! I couldn’t be more happy with the results. And my boyfriend loves them just as much!!
Absolutely wonderful experience with Dr. Saltz from beginning to end: from scheduling appointment to initial consultation to surgery to follow-follow-up appointment. I was treated like royalty! Cannot say enough great things about my entire experience. Highly and confidently recommend Dr. Saltz!
The staff and surgeon gave me more than enough information regarding my procedure. I was not pressured to book, I was not talked out of the decision I wanted to go with. Surgeon took time to learn about myself just as well as her head nurse. The coordinator was very helpful with providing my quote and letting me know the surgeons surgery schedule. The experience was the BEST experience I had and I had no doubt I wanted to schedule my surgery with Dr. Saltz.
Dr. Brahme and all the staff are amazing and professional. I have been coming to see Dr. Brahme since 1998 and will do so until he retires. I always recommend LJCSC to anyone interested in plastic surgery or treatments. I feel more confident and really happy with my appearance.
Dr. Salazar and his staff at LJCSC were very personable and helpful with answering all my questions and explaining the process from start to finish. They made sure that they explained how to better care for my new hair to maximize the best results. This was very reassuring I would definitely recommend anyone to this practice who is looking for the best .
From my first visit, I felt like the staff knew what they were doing. Friendly & informative. I liked that the doctor called me at my hotel the night before to see if I had any questions. He also called me after and the nurses checked up on me frequently. Their costumer service is amazing. I felt very secure in my choice to have plastic surgery in this facility. [patient name]
The staff was SUPER friendly. Answered all questions I had. The best thing about this experience is that the staff is here to help you & make you feel the best
The experience wasn't uncomfortable. Everyone was friendly. They answered all my question and provided all the information that I needed to know.
Information given was accurate and knowledgeable. The consultation was candid and easy to understand by a layman. Comfortable and easy going.
Every staff member I interacted with was friendly yet professional. The materials provided to review both before my initial appointment and after the surgery had been scheduled were extremely helpful.
The best thing about the procedure is the continual joy I get when I see myself in a mirror or photo! The confidence that I have in my nose and overall appearance is the gift that keeps on giving. . I am in love with my nose post-rhinoplasty! Dr. Wheeler did the most beautiful job and the results exceeded my expectations. Interestingly, since surgery I have gotten compliments that my eyes and lips look bigger! Strange how changing one feature can alter others (or their perception) as well. The staff was also so kind and professional! My one difficulty was with the pain meds post-surgery. I became very sick from them, and don’t think my pain necessitated them. I wish that I had been advised to start with ibuprofen or Tylenol first, and if needed move to something stronger.
Dr. Saltz was the only surgeon out of 4 plastic surgeons who didn’t advise surgery immediately. She asked me to get an MRI to ensure my silicone implant was indeed ruptured. I had a very through exam that’s included breast measuring and an exam. She was the last Dr. I decided to see because I was so impressed. The entire team was so nice, professional and timely. Exceptional care!!
My augmentation turned out absolutely perfect! I feel like a woman again. Thank you!
When Scheduling the consultation, Riana advised me that Dr. Saltz typically doesn't perform the surgeries together. It was a bit of a let down that this was a possibility, considering that the mommy makeover is always represented as one whole procedure. I was hopeful that that was not an absolute and perhaps I would be able to be an exception to her rule. Upon talking to Dr. Saltz and Ruth, I understood why this was her process. It actually changed my opinion of doing the procedures together, and now I am glad to do than separately. This also gives me great confidence in Dr. Saltz that she is not willing to compromise her surgical outcome. Much of my research and before and after photos were reviewed on-line before my consultation, so I don't recall looking at any photos during my appointment. We discussed the importance of a normal looking belly button (High importance to me), meeting a more ideal weight prior to surgery, and what procedures were needed to achieve a desired result. I also appreciated being able to read Dr Saltz's online guide to body contouring. This answered many of my questions prior to my consultation. Riana also spent what seemed like 30 minutes or more just talking to me about what was included in the quote, what to expect after surgery, and what she experienced as a patient doing the same procedures. This was also very helpful.
Kept informed every step of the entire process. Questions always addressed quickly. [Single best thing is...] The end results!
This will be my second surgery with this office. They have always been amazing and I have referred many people to them.
Dr. Saltz and her Nurse made me feel comfortable and at ease with the decision of this surgery. I felt a connection with both of them right off the bat and felt that I could trust them with my surgery. They seemed professional and as if this surgery was very routine and basic for them, which put my mind at ease. I did not have the same connection or feeling with the other surgeon I had a consultation with at a different location.
La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center sets the standard for professionalism. In every aspect. This is my opinion, having surgery done before other places. Right when you walk in the waiting room alone is so clean and open and plenty of room so you're not packed in there like sardines and beautiful you don't get a feeling in your stomach.. like I need to get out of here. Everyone is dressed for the job that they are doing. That may sound weird to notice this. But if you have had consultations and surgeries before...then you've seen it all.. you had those gut feelings about a doctor when he comes in unshaven to give you a consultation--those types of things matter. Because if an office doesn't care about the way the waiting room looks or the way the workers look or carry themselves you need to get out of there. Completely opposite here everything is wonderful five stars and Beyond. Dr.Salazar was professional as well as comforting. Very balanced for sure. Everything was explained in a way that I could understand this tricky surgery that I'm about to undergo. I have a wonderful piece of mind going into this and that's what you need. My husband and I feel very good about choosing this place for my procedure. And I know that I am in good hands I can feel it. I would recommend this place to anyone who is considering surgery.. and the fact is from the moment I called for the consultation appointment even though I had another consultation somewhere else I did know that in the end we were going to pick this place. I have already scheduled my procedure and I'm very very excited.
My initial consultation was great. I am scheduled for my pre-operation and surgery. I have some questions about the procedure but Dr. Smoot will address it during my pre-operation. [patient name]
Dr. Brahme was on time and 100% present during my visit. He was honest with my expectations and very open. He even showed me the operating room. He met with my teenage daughter and put her fears to rest. Christina was honest about recovery and showed me her scars and shared her experiences.
Dr Salazar-Reyes, Carmen D, and Riana were all very helpful with my questions, concerns, and irrational ideas of wanting to change my sizers. They were prompt at getting back to me as soon as they could!
Dr. Smoot and staff are highly experienced and made me feel completely comfortable and confident in their qualifications and expertise. Nurses took my calls every time I called and made me feel they knew what they are doing and were very kind.
Very pleased with the level of service I received from start to finish. I highly recommend the Centre to anyone
Everyone was very friendly and professional. I felt they listened well and was very informative about the procedure.
Liked Dr. Saltz & Ruth. Both very friendly, putting me at ease & took time to examine & explain thoroughly the procedure.
I am a return patient of Dr. Wheeler and I have been so happy with my previous results I would not see another MD. The whole experience at La Jolla Cosmetics has been great! They make me feel like a priority and I love it!
This surgery increased my confidence greater than I imagined and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. . My surgery turned out better than i imagined. Very satisfied with the outcome.
Every aspect of this process exceeded my expectations. [Single best thing is...] More confidence, better fitting clothes, stronger relationships
Overall wonderful experience. My boobs do not fall out of my bra or bathing suit anymore!
Dr. Roark was amazing and delivered exactly what he said he would. Very happy and happy I decided to have my surgery with him. I feel confident when I look in the mirror.
I was especially grateful that Dr. Saltz and her nurse were so down to earth and real. That immediately put me at ease. They are both forth coming with real life opinions (as am I) and don’t try to be something they are not. That, amongst other great things, made my decision to cancel other consults and go forward with Dr. Satlz and her staff.
The nurse and surgeon were amazing and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.
Everything went amazing.
Every aspect of my surgery was superb. Pre op and Post op and the outcome of the surgery was exactly what I had invisioned. Outcome was everything I had hoped for.
This office performed my breast augmentation and I was highly satisfied. It’s been 12 years and my lifestyle has changed and would like them removed.
My overall experience was better then I ever imagined! Thank you Dr. Brahame everything went smooth (: I went to sleep for a split sec and woke up with boobs! I felt Great right after. I went with Dr.Brahame because he has many experience in surgery procedures, I highly recommend. [patient name]. I loved the whole experience from start to finish. Best part was waking up after surgery not feeling a thing, it wasn't as scary as i thought. Dr.Brahame is my Favorite, great feeling knowing your going into surgery with someone experienced.
They were extremely informative and made me feel comfortable.
[Single best thing is...] The practical side of Nurse and Dr. Saltz, plus a questioner I answered to help Dr. Saltz and her nurse to understand and communicate with me.
Felt comfortable, cared for and carefully considered. Like my concerns were very important!
I really appreciated the time and attention from both Carmen and Dr Salazar-Reyes. DJ was also extremely helpful and nice.
I've had procedures done previously at LCSC and their services are above and beyond professional.
Professional, clean, courteous [Single best thing is...] Getting the results I wanted.
The doctor and staff were super knowledgeable and gave me more information than I anticipated ina good way! They really took their time with me and went above and beyond my expectations. I felt well informed and super comfortable and connected with the doctor and staff.
Felt extremely comfortable with everyone that helped us.
As unsure as I am about the procedure, every one was wonderful, very informative and pleasant. Parking and access to the building was great....I just know I am not ready for a facelift
Everyone was so very nice. I felt like I was in good hands, and I felt that the doctor and staff genuinely cared about me. I love my results so far, and I know they are just going to get better as the swelling continues to subside. It was just a great experience overall, and I'll definitely have Dr. Brahme be the one doing my next procedures!
I am extremely happy with my results and the surgery couldn’t have gone any easier. I feel more comfortable showing off my body
Omg!! Everything in la jolla cosmetic surgery is very nice !! Dr.Salazar is an amazing person !! Nurses and staff are all very friendly and professional! My body turned out amazing!!! This completely changed [my] Life. I am satisfied with the shape of my body and the results of the procedures.
I have been truly happy with my experience with Dr. Saltz as well as her staff. I can't speak highly enough about Ruth and Dr. Saltz and how well they have treated me and made me feel comfortable from the moment I stepped foot into their office. Thank you everyone! I got the perfect natural look I wanted! Thank you Dr. Saltz!
I loved the nurse and surgoen. They were very friendly and answered all my questions.
I really like the friendliness of the staff. They make you feel welcome and comfortable. [Single best thing is...] The aftercare
It was a smooth process overall. The surgeon gave me the natural look that I was hoping for. [Single best thing is...] The results.
I’ve had several surgeries with Dr. Wheeler and have been very satisfied with all of them and his staff is always been top notch! [Single best thing is...] It gave me my figure back
Dr. Salazar answered all of my questions and some that I didn’t know I had. He spent a very long time with me to help choose the implant size that I would get. Going over photos with me as well. His nurse was also incredibly helpful in the process. He was honest and straightforward about what he thought I did and did not need.
All my questions were answered. The staff was quick to get back to me. Packet given prior to surgery was very thourgh. The nurse that spoke to me at my pre-op appointment was so great with explaining things to me & answering questions regarding my surgery.
Dr. Salazar and all his staff are really professional and always available to answer any questions.
Dr. Smoot has the bedside manner of an angel covered in fluffy clouds. His entire staff is extremely professional, caring, kind, and went above and beyond. I have already referred two of my close friends, one of who has already gotten the same surgery I have. The place is beautiful, Dr. Smoot is funny and kind, the staff is amazing. It's like....I'm wearing my favorite accessory all the time and never have to take it off.
The genuine kindness and concern for my particular issues and the complications that occurred afterward. This was my second experience with Dr. Saltz. I had my first augmentation several years before and went back to her when one of the implants deflated. They explained the benefits of silicone vs saline and helped me with my decision and type of implant. My care was excellent both times. Dr. Saltz was extremely informative and overall wonderful with the whole process. Her assistant Ruth was equally exceptional with personal and attentive care. They were both available with my post-op concerns and responded quickly. My follow up surgery was performed by Dr. Smoot. His care and concern was excellent as well. Also, the office staff was responsive and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend your office anytime!
The operation did not take long, I never feel pain. I was confident it would be alright. The surgery really solve my problem. People surrounding me say I am younger and look better.
Dr Saltz and Ruth are great. Dr. Saltz listened to what I wanted and went beyond my expectations. It's only been 10 weeks since my surgery but I could see that the final results will be awesome. Ruth, she's wonderful. I love her. She was available to answer all my questions during my recovery. I will and have recommended Dr. Saltz to my friends and family.
The safety in Knowing what excellent hands I was in. Top to bottom everyone was kind, helpful, and did an excellent job
The cost factor of removing and replacing a ruptured implant is probably much more than I can realistically afford at my current age.
I feel more confident and am very happy that I'm able to feel much more feminine. Dr. Saltz and her nurse, Ruth, are a great team. From my consultation to my post-op visits, they made me feel comfortable and really listened to my concerns. Ruth is very accomodating and Dr. Saltz did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. Very happy with my results.
Words can’t describe the change! It’s life changing in so many ways. From day one with my consultation every step went smoothly. Every single person I came in contact with was amazing. The thing I was scared of the most was my recovery but to my surprise it was awesome! The first couple of days were a little rough but overall on a scale from 1-10 10 being the best I will say my recovery was a 10. I will add I only took 2 pain pills and those were cut in quarters and took them for the first few days. Dr. Saltz is beyond wonderful! I LOVE my tummy and feel so good about myself. I have 5 kids ranging from 9 years old up to 30, my last kid at age 45. The blubber and was just hanging....feels great not to have it there. I could go on and on about how wonderful my experience was but I think this sums it up. I’m looking forward to getting myBreast reduced and lifted and it will definitely be Dr. Saltz performing my surgery.
The staff was very supportive and informative .
Everyone was amazing and great. Very friendly and fun staff. A must!
The surgeon was very experienced with this procedure. . Making the surgery decision was difficult. But once I had ALL of the educational materials they provided and after my first evaluation I felt much better about my decision.They exceeded my expectations and they were highly recommended by my best friend.
Dr Wheeler is very nice and ethical who would not want to take advantage of you, but he cares for his patients.
I have been a patient of Dr. Brahme in the past and have always been extremely satisfied with the results, professionalism of staff and environment. I plan on having the procedures very soon- see you soon!
Great service. I have already referred 5 people to this site and surgeon. I was astonished by how friendly, knowledgeable, and beautiful these peoples personalities and love for patients are. Dr. Smoot is an incredible surgeon. He performs his surgery based off what he thinks is proportionate to your size and does such an incredible job! I have had so many compliments since my surgery! I rave about LJCSC and will continue to do so!
Mostly the technology that showed my body as is and then with implants. Did not like the “after” images and it made me not confident in my potential outcome. Also, other consultations provided sizers to put in the bra which seemed mush more realistic than putting the actual implants in the bra as I did during this consultation.
Dr. Smoot explained the options and the pros and cons of each. He took into account the end look I desire rather than just making a recommendation. A previous surgeon had recommended something that seemed to be counter to the end result I wanted. After consulting with Dr. Smoot, my suspicions were confirmed.
Dr. Smoot and his entire team were extremely professional, courteous and kind. Dr. Smoot is truly an artist who is highly capable and gifted. I could not be happier with my eyelid results. My results are natural-looking and my eyes look fantastic! Thank-you so much, Dr. Smoot and Team!
Excellent bedside manner and professionalism. Extremely happy with my results.
Everyone has been so incredibly nice and friendly! I felt genuinely cared about, and I’m already recommending your practice to several of my friends who are wanting “mommy makeovers.” I’m still recovering from surgery, but everything has been phenomenal so far, and I cannot wait to see my final results!
I was very satisfied with both Dr. Salazar and his nurse Carmen. They were both very informative. Mostly likely I will get my surgery done, I'm just waiting for my boyfriend to recover from back surgery.
I felt that all my questions were answered and I loved my anatomy lesson while waiting for the Dr.!
I was satisfied with the feeling of being in the hands of professionals I could trust. My surgeon and nurses far exceeded my expectations in terms of bed side manner and knowledge about my procedure.
The nurse was incredibly warm and welcoming. The surgeon was great too. They made me feel so comfortable.
I feel I gave all of my information to the dr and my surgery was still not done right. I was referred to you by a prior patient, with rave reviews, so I did the surgery and only to find out that it was not done right. I also have a dent on the right breast, along the inside from a stitch that is very noticeable. When I mentioned this, they said it was harder to go from the bottom, under my breast , which is not where he was supposed to do the incision. I feel it was rushed that morning I went in... and I was not completely informed as to where the incisions were going to be. The nurse and the doctor should double and triple check prior to going in.
Dr. Smoot came highly recommended and his team was with me every step of the way in the process. They made everything easy and comfortable
I finally love what I see in the mirror I’m happy
Overall I was satisfied with the experience. I would recommend the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery center to a friend.
This is my second surgery with Dr. Smoot. He and his staff are very polite, knowledgeable , and thorough. I trust him completely and I am very satisfied with my results.
It look so Natural and Perfect. Love the work ... Doctor Salazar recomendation was perfect for what I needed.
Dr. Smoot is an excellent doctor. People who have seen the results of my procedure can't believe how natural my face/neck appears. Dr. Smoot really delivers an amazing product (better appearance). I look rested and so natural!
Dr Saltz and her nurse Ruth are amazing. I knew I was in the right hands.
Dr. Saltz is the blend of an artist and a highly skilled surgeon. She had to take into account my previous breast surgery (30 years ago), my breast asymmetry and even the difference in both sides of my rib cage (she noticed this). She is trustworthy to place your trust in as you consider surgical intervention. Ruth is her nurse, and invaluable partner. Ruth has the memory of an elephant, and the beauty of Marilyn Monroe (or another pretty blonde). She talked me down from my panic tree the week before surgery. These women are worthy of your trust. Dr. Saltz calling me the night before surgery. Seriously!? Yep, she did! And the waiting room is very aesthetic.
Great customer service, everyone was extremely helpful and more than willing to answer all my questions.
Dr Roark and his staff treat me as family. I have been coming to him for 15+ years and have had two surgeries by him. I am very happy with the results and the entire process and experience. I would recommend him to everyone. his bedside manner and staff
Dr. Saltz was absolutely amazing!! She made me feel comfortable and her obvious competency gave me confidence in the surgery. I will always go to her for any cosmetic surgery I have done. I am so much more confident in my appearance. I was somewhat bottom heavy so now I have an hour glass figure. My husband is in love!
Dr Smoot and the staff has always been very professional and I recommend him all the time. I am a satisfied client from 20 years and counting.
Wonderful staff. Excellent surgeon and perfect results Feel better about my appearance and my clothes fit better
I was totally satisfied with the service. Doctors and staff were very caring and consider it. Made me feel very comfortable very relaxed and I Plan to go and have a different kind of surgery done Dr. Smoot was a very kind Doctor and his nurse was awesome too..Its hard to find doctors these days and staff that make you feel so at ease. I look forward to having my next surgery with a great group. Thank you so much for everything. I feel great I’m very pleased with with my results. Thanks again!
Patient communication was exceptional. For someone that had never had a surgery before my anxiety was extremely high they made feel comfortable and they answered every question I had under the sun without making me feel incompetent. I have so much more confidence now with the procedure being done, bye bye padding !!!
Loved the before care. Personable but professional. Love the final result!!! Beautiful outcome. My doctor was the most pleasant and informative person
Best dr ever I will go back to get more procedures done with him
The care from Staff, their comfort of making me feel relaxed and informed! Dr.Salazar-Reyes! Such a very Kind, and Gentle, Gentleman!!!! The atmosphere, quite calming and soothing!!! Dr. Reyes such a Sweet Soul!!! He made me feel so relaxed, and he would talk me through procedure(s). I had nearly forgot why I was their!!! All in all, had the greatest experience as a patient!! And the greatest patience from My Doctor and Staff!!!!!!!!!
I love my results I will definitely go back to see Dr. Salazar in the future. He is my go to Plastic Surgeon, so professional and knowledgeable. I love how I look! Because of the unique artistic eye of Dr. Salazar you can tell that he loves what he does. He explained everything and made sure I understood. He build up my confidence in undergoing the procedure and he listened very carefully to what I wanted.
I have had other procedures done and I feel comfortable.
Professionalism, quality of results
Dr. Smoot and his staff were very professional as well as being very nice and informative. If I could change one thing about my experience it would be to be more confident in the outcome. I was nervous that after breastfeeding four children my breasts would not look 100%. I was so pleasantly surprised at the results I received. Thank you for doing an amazing job. :)
Dr. Salazar and his wonderful staff were very courteous and kind and make me feel comfortable considering I was getting completely naked for the good doctor!! He assured me I would greatly benefit from a complete tummy tuck. Now to save the money...
I liked how i didn't feel pain and that there weren't any scars on my face after the surgery. Because Dr. Salazar explained really well What he was going to do With the mole on my skin before the surgery and that made me feel more comfortable
The doctor did a great job and follow up. He was a very caring doctor and extremely talented.
excellent ! Fulfilled all the expectations I expected. Pleasant attention always professional and friendly
The staff’s bedside manner was excellent and very accommodating. They answered every question I had and discuss several options with me. I didn’t feel rushed like I sometimes do with appts with my own PCP.
Christina, Dr. Brahme and all other staff members are highly professional, personable and treat me like family. Dr. Brahme is an artist. He has given me guidance, confidence and assurance about the procedure. He has done miraculous work with each procedure. Staff follow-up and communication has been and is key to a healthy recovery. I recommend Dr Brahme, Christina et al to anyone considering a procedure.
The results were more than I could have asked for. Exactly what I wanted . The entire procedure from operation to healed product was exactly what I wanted. Good price and amazing results
The office environment was beautiful and the staff made my experience as a patient wonderful. They truly went above any beyond; the person picking me up from surgery had a 2y/o and the staff did absolutely everything possible to make sure they were prepared and comfortable in the wait room. They even called the day prior to surgery to tell me how cold the waiting room room can get and to ensure the little one had a jacket.
Dr. Saltz and her assistant were extremely kind and knowledgeable about the procedure I wish to receive. I felt very safe expressing my thoughts and concerns and they were transparent with what I should expect, etc. I will more than likely schedule one initial consultation prior to my surgery just to double confirm and am looking forward to having breast augmentation done by an experienced and kind surgeon of whom made me feel very safe and comfortable.Thank you Dr. Saltz! :)
Dr. Smoot and his staff were amazing. They made me feel very comfortable and explained everything very well. I would absolutely go back and refer others.
The surgeon has a fabulous reputation. I have seen his work and love the natural look he creates. The receptionists, nurses and staff are so friendly and encouraging. I felt comfortable from the beginning of this cosmetic journey.Am excited to see the outcome (surgery tomorrow).
My experience with Dr. Salazar was awesome. He listened carefully to my needs, He explains things very clearly and thoroughly. I was very happy with my results. I would recommend him for any cosmetic procedure.
I did surgery on my breast I do not like the way they look now and they're not the same
Dr. Roark performed my first face/necklift 13 years ago, so I was thrilled to discover that he was still practicing. I refer all my friends to Dr. Roark, 2 of which recently had work done by him. He is an excellent surgeon with an artistic eye and he has a delightful personality.
I trust Dr. Salazar with my face. I have been treated several times by Dr. Salazar. I am very satisfied with my results. Most of all, he kwons how to listen. 5 stars!
Great attention to detail and know-how! Felt very confident all through the process as a first timer!
Cause of excellent operation that he performed with my upper lips surgery with no notice of the scar were he performed the operation about an inch deep and an inch wide just like he never performed any surgery at all excellent job and I am very happy with the result I will recommend this ???? to anybody ? doc
The results are fantastic. Answered every question. Made himself available to my schedule. Great bedside manor. Came home to get well flowers. Very thoughtful
Dr Salazar-Reyes is an excellent doctor. He has a calm demeanor and takes the time to explain the process and what I could expect.
I was able to be in and out of surgery and the aftermath was very rewarding. I had lots of problems biting my lip and my lip was hanging really bad and the procedures really help a lot in my eating in my looks and in myself confidence
The Dr was very personable and caring with my needs
The doctor demonstrated sincere concern. He made me feel very comfortable and I truly felt I could trust him. The doctor improved the scar that was already there.
Dr. Salazar was very helpful with my needs he explained to me in detail for getting the Botox in two Appt's. I was very Happy and Satisfied with the results. I would recommend Dr. Salazar to any of my Family and Friends.
All of the staff at LJCSC were friendly, informative, and made you feel comfortable with every step of the process. I never had a doubt that the surgery would be successful and to my liking. They filled in for the confidence that lacks when the fear of the unknown is present. They reminded me of the amazing change that would come patience and made me feel at ease. I am so happy with my now 3 months post-op results and would recommend the surgery and the facility to all.
Everything about the experience was awesome. I no longer have to stuff one side of my bra
Dr. Smoot, Carmen and Riana were so thorough -they took the time to listen to me, and knew exactly what I wanted to accomplish. I had encapsulation and really needed a clear picture of my options. Dr. Smoot delivered - he listened to me, heard my concerns and put me at ease when I made my decision to have the lift, move the implants, add grafts and reduce the size. It was the right thing for me and I appreciate his directness with me. I will come to him again if I choose to have any other procedures in the future. Thanks Dr. Smoot and team!
I like that the doctor took time to listen to me .. overall everything was a great experience
Ruth and Reina were amazing! They both were very professional, comforting, knowledgable and 'got' what I was talking about :)
Both Dr. Saltz and her staff were very friendly and put me at ease, answered my questions and made me feel safe. I feel so much more confident with my body both dressed and undressed.
Dr. Brahme is a professional and honest doctor.
I had a lot of hanging skin and was very embarrassed how I looked and now with my tummy tuck and breast lift I can wear a bikini I have never been able to wear one because I have been over weight my whole life. I feel light I don’t need to hide behind baggy clothes. I honestly can say I love the results. . I lost 109 lbs. Dr. Roark first did my tummy tuck and arm lift. The whole procedure was not painful the doctor and nurses were always answering any questions I had. A year later I did my breast lift which I love how my body was transformed thanks to Dr. Roark. I feel very comfortable with everyone in the clinic they all make you feel special. I will be back for more surgery’s and have already recommended my family to have a consultation there. I’m really sad Dr. Roark is retiring really soon.
Everyone was professional and kind. Everyone made me feel welcome and calm. They even got a blood draw out of me because they nurse was so so sweet!
I felt confident that I made the right decision after my first consultation because of the professionalism of the whole staff and followed by my discussion with Dr. Wheeler. I appreciated the counseling telling me exactly how the procedure was to be done from beginning, during and after. Knowing what to expect gave me peace of mind during my recovery.
Dr Saltz’s office was absolutely amazing! I saw Ruth every appointment and she was so nice and made the situation very comfortable to talk about especially if it’s your first time having plastic surgery. Dr Saltz was fabulous. She even called me the night before surgery to see how I was feeling and answered any last minute questions I had which I was blown away by. Their care of your needs are definitely a top priority but they are also very honest and upfront about the whole process. I was also able to get in for surgery very quickly on cancellation notice which was even better! I could not be more satisfied with Dr. Saltz and the entire staff!
The entire staff was very friendly and caring. The doctor is amazing and listened to what I wanted. He was very honest and caring.
I've had 3 breast augmentations before and what I experienced at your facility I hadn't experienced before and that really resonated with me. So it is that reason I choose to remain a loyal patient and refer all my friends and associates to you.
The staff, facility , results and care were all amazing
Very satisfied with the information I received. Cost and recovery.
Everyone was welcoming and understanding compassionate and respectful during my breast augmentation surgery
I was highly impressed with Dr Smoot and his entire staff, I look forward to scheduling my surgery within the year. Awesome experience
Dr. Wheeler and his staff are amazing. They answered all of my questions and made me confident in my decision to go forward with surgery. I am so pleased with my results and the recovery went very smooth, better than I expected. The results are amazing. I now look better than I have in years.
Because the doctor and the nurses were very sweet, I wasn’t scared.I had a fantastic experience and recoveryThank you doctor
Dr. Smoot is very experienced and easily explained everything to me.
I felt very comfortable during the appointment and all my questions were answered
Dr. Smoot and the staff were beyond amazing. I was allowed to take my time, try on different sizes for my augmentation, ask as many questions as I needed, and never felt rushed. It was truly a family vibe. You could easily tell they take pride in their services and treat every individual like they are special. I was very comfortable with the day of surgery as well. Dr. Smoot and the staff went to every extreme to make sure I was well taken care of. I would highly recommend their services to anyone.
Dr. Wheeler and the entire staff we very professional, caring and answered all of my questions. I absolutely loved the experience. I feel more confident and now my outside appearance mirrors how I feel on the inside.
Both my RN Ruth and Dr. Saltz made me feel very comfortable and at ease. They answered all my questions thoroughly. The only feedback I would have is that they are used to the terminology of everyday breast augmentation but as a new patient, I am not. I was confused as to which implant to choose and which size. In the end it all worked out well, but it was a bit confusing pre-surgery.
I keep coming back because of quality and service. First rate!!
It was a pleasant experience. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. I didn’t feel judged for wanting a procedure.
Friendly staff and great information was provided.
I am very happy with Dr. Wheeler. He always tells you honestly what you can expect. I am one of his returning patients.
I got 3 Dr./ opinions regarding a lateral repair I needed on my breast implants, the different opinions on down time, General recovery and pain to be endured was not very appealing to me (specially recovering from a major rotator cuff surgery). Needless to say, I was very aprenhensive and NOT looking forward to do this procedure. Dr. Roark and his staff just made this experience simply unbelievable, the recovery was easy and about 95% PAINLESS, I was so grateful for their professionalism and integrity in making sure ALL went well including the anesthesia which normally makes me very sick... could not be happier with the results, I will refer friends and family to this practice hands down !!!!
Professionalism, reassurance, and results of procedure.
Surgeon seemed very experienced and knowledgeable about the procedures that would be most appropriate for my concerns, and explained why other procedures might not be as useful. The before and after photos were a big help too.
Attention to detail is awesome. So very happy with the results. The attention the whole staff provided was over and beyond expectations l.
Dr Roark is clearly very experienced and a very kind and personable surgeon.
I was really at ease with the professionalism of the staff. Dr. Brahme was patient and answered all my questions. I felt like the Dr. Really cared about my medical history wants and needs. I felt like he is interested in helping me have a procedure that will be safe before vanity. I feel very comfortable that he will choose what is right for my breast augmentation.
Very Professional staff and Surgeon. Surgeon had calming demeanor and made me feel comfortable and at ease. At the same time provided answers to my questions and presented his opinion/recommendations for procedures.
I paid an appreciable amount of money for my procedure. I was briefed thoroughly as to what what to expect prior and post surgery. I followed through with my post operative recommendations to the best of my ability. I was informed that due to my particular about of physical activity that my post surgical swelling might last longer than the average patient. That in mind, I feel that my swelling has not subsided to my expectations. When referencing my current pre and posit surgical photos, I am not impressed with the results. I am holding out hope that my physical appearance improves, but at this time I don't feel the results were worth the money. In fact, at this time I feel the results might in fact look worse than when I started. I expected far more significant results. I am hopeful that in time my appearance improves. If it does not significantly improve within the next few months, I will be requesting a revision. This is my personal opinion, and I do not wish it to reflect upon the previous or current experiences of other patients.
Dr. Saltz highly experienced and Professional. She is talented Surgeon and listens to her patients desires!The office has highly experienced Staff and Dr. Saltz RN Ruth is fabulous and caring and listened to my needs as well. All the staff made me fell comfortable and well cared for!
This surgery was my second face lift and other procedures with Dr. wheeler. He is the best plastic surgeon anyone could wish for!!! All my family and friends have had there procedures done by Dr. E. wheeler. KEEP THE GOOD WORK UP AND DON'T EVER RETIRE!!!! We are going to need you sometime in the future. Thank You, [patient name] Wow!! It has made me feel better about myself!!!
Dr. Roark provided me with all pertinent information and made me feel that I had all of the facts needed to move forward with my procedure without hesitance. Dr. Roark is compassionate and one of the best bed side manners that I have every experienced with any other doctor/surgeon. Sarah provided me with the initial consult and was very informative and provided me with a sense of comfort and education. She went above and beyond prior to my surgery and had continued you to reach out and follow up with me since my surgery. I could not be more elated and I am over joyed with the results of my surgery. The Anesthesiologist Hass was extremely informative every step of the way making me feel safe and comfortable in addition the entire Post Op Staff was kind, gentle and very professional. I give this experience a 10 out of 10 and highly recommend the entire staff to anyone interested in getting this procedure done or any procedure.
Dr. Smoot and his whole staff were amazing and really took the time to explain things to me both before and after my surgery. It was a clean, welcoming environment and I’m glad I chose to do my surgery with Dr. Smoot. I feel more comfortable in my own body
Staff and doctor were very friendly and knowledgeable.
The staff was very courteous and knowledgeable. The office was very warm and inviting. Everyone involved in my consultation made me feel like I was in great hands.
I was informed about all of my options. The experience was caring and supportive every step of the way. The entire staff was thoughtful and caring from reception to billing and everything in between. Dr. Smoot is amazing, thoughtful, caring and very talented...my husband says he's an artist. :) I feel confident, happy and in-charge.
Dr. Saltz is absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend her and her staff highly enough. Dr. Saltz carefully listened to what I wanted and gave me great advice. She was very patient and totally understood what I wanted. The surgery was excellent; stress-free, rapid recovery, and no issues. I had great follow-up and always felt like I could contact Dr. Saltz at any point during my recovery. The results are amazing. I have got my confidence back! Re. pricing - extremely fair and very transparent. I've recommended Dr. Saltz to friends and family. The results. Absolutely incredible. Far exceeded what I had hoped for. Dr. Saltz is amazing.
The personal attention from the nurse throughout the process Having a point of contact I could use throughout the process, Ruth the nurse
Dr. Wheeler and his staff were personal and compassionate just a very comfortable and professional atmosphere I'm so much more comfortable in my body
I am a healthcare professional and the experience of how professional everyone was made me comfortable and at ease.
Dr. Saltz recommended a BETTER procedure compared to two other surgeons I met with. Two others wanted to make additional incisions and scars to lift one breast which I can only assume means they don't know how to properly perform/apply the technique Dr. Saltz did (purse string lift). I'm am so incredibly happy with my decision to use Dr. Saltz. My breast and nipples are VERY symmetrical, VERY soft, perfectly shaped, beautiful--I'm thrilled with the result! I showed them to a family member who loved them and then said, my friend is coming over, DON'T talk about your boobs, her surgeon messed hers up and her nipples are on top. It didn't occur to me that this was a possibility--but also made me even more happy and confident in my decision. I think what I'm trying to say is, I learned through this experience that not all surgeons are created equal. And I found the best!!I also had a fantastic anesthesia experience (compared to two prior experiences that were horrible) and Dr. Saltz's after-care regimen made me very comfortable in my recovery. Nurse Ruth's description of how each medication would help was also great! It didn't occur to me that muscles relaxers would provide more relief than pain killers. This knowledge made me much more comfortable and able to manage my discomfort.
Dr. Wheeler is very warm, and care for his patients with high skill to bring out the nature and beauty look for me. More confident on myself.
Overall a very comfortable visit. The doctor was very knowledgeable and explained my diagnosis and the options thoroughly. Making my appointment was easy the staff was friendly and accommodating.
The surgeon and nurse were very reassuring and kind. This is such and big decision and cost you have to feel comfortable with all aspects of procedure, from the office visits to the way you're treated. I felt like they were interested in seeing how I felt about myself and how I wanted to feel about myself after the surgery.
Dr. Wheeler was very genuine and upfront about the risks associated with breast augmentation. He makes you feel really comfortable and takes the one to answer questions you may have. Furthermore, the nurses at LjCSC are so attentive and kind.
The doctor was so patient with me and answered all my questions, even if I had to ask things over, he was so kind and warm. I loved how honest he was with me about his experience with prior clients, etc. My favorite part about this visit was Shelly, the nurse who came in before the Doctor and got all my concerns, fears, and questions answered. Shelly listened so closely that when I was sharing with the Doctor she was able to help with anything I had forgotten to ask, etc. Shelly is exceptional in being comforting and knowledgeable; someone I would want in the operating room with me. Both the doctor and nurse were awesome and now I am able to proceed.
Dr. Brahme listened carefully to everything that I wanted done, and he took his professional opinion as well as my personal opinion and my needs a priority. I love the way it made my body look. It made me look super propositional! My boobs are exactly what I wanted in every way possible.
Feel younger and more energetic! Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and courteous
The whole appointment was very relaxed. I didn’t feel pressured to schedule an appointment. Everyone was knowledgeable. Just a great experience
I loved Dr. Smoot and his nurse! They were very knowledgeable, helpful and nice! Made me feel really comfortable! I was scared of doing the surgery when the day came and everyone was so sweet and reassuring. The result I received are perfect! It's everything I wanted! The scars are minimal and the size are perfect! Loved everything about my experience!
My confidence in the surgeon made me comfortable making this big decision. Staff excellent. The pre-op booklet and post-op written materials were invaluable to me and my recovery team!
Everyone was extremely nice and the Dr. was honest about his likes and dislikes about the procedures I was inquiring about.
My experience from start to finish as far as the consultation goes was exceptional and I do plan on scheduling the surgery as soon as I can save the deposit!
One peck is overall smaller than the other. And there is still a small amount of gyno in the other nipple. For the price I paid I expected excellent work to be done and it did not meet my expectations.
The staff was very caring and knowledgeable and Dr. Smoot is very professional and calm and any nerves I had were calmed by both.
Office staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. Doctor Smoot is an amazing surgeon with great bed side manner.
The staff was amazing, made me feel so comfortable so all I had to do was be excited about my decision. They are very thorough and explained everything very well. I had a very pleasant experience and recommend this office highly. My results were just as I hoped for maybe better! I feel great.
The results from my surgery are amazing, I feel and look so much better.
Everything went smooth. The staff was friendly and informative. The office was convenient and had a great atmosphere. The doctor was very professional. All of my questions were answered. The outcome was great! It was very stress free.
The staff and nurses and Dr.Brahme were amazing. Always there for me for any questions or concerns and my surgery came out amazing! I feel all around better about my appearance and feel beautiful again!
The staff was extremely professional and helpful. I had a great experience and would highly recommend this business to family and friends. The outcome of the surgery was even better than I expected. I am so happy with the way I look and feel.
Dr. Smoot did a wonderful job on my face and is very personable and answers my questions in detail.
Everyone was great! Made me feel very comfortable from start to finish. Great experience! The day of surgery was easier than expected. No pain and very pleased with results.
The kindness and efficiency of the physician and the staff. Made me look a lot younger
I like the care and expertise I felt comfortable and knew I was in excellent hands
Dr. Roark and his team made this whole experience very comfortable and I am SO happy with the results of my breast augmentation I’ve already been recommending my friend go to him. It was so much easier than I expected.
I am so pleased with the results of the procedure I had done! Dr Smoot and all the staff were so kind and helpful. Highly recommend Dr Smoot if you are thinking about having procedures done. I had horrible bags under my eyes. I looked tired all the time. I look and feel 100% better than before the surgery.
Very happy with my experience everyone was very professional and nice
Love love love Dr. Saltz and her staff!! They are all wonderful and made me feel very comfortable and taken care of the whole time! Highly recommend Dr. Saltz! I went to her because she was recommended by a friend who also had her surgery done by Dr. Saltz and we both are highly satisfied patients :) Minimal scarring, quick recovery time, and overall beautiful natural outcome!
Loved Dr. Saltz as a person and doctor and Ruth is also so fantastic. They were very patient with answering questions and concerns, etc. I have already referred patients to her. I love my new boobs!
Excellent results! Dr. Brahme did an amazing job! He is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions/concerns. His nurse Christina was so helpful, honest and made me feel at ease through the entire process. The entire staff was kind and professional. Thank you!
Dr. Saltz and Ruth were amazing! They both were extremely charismatic and knowledgeable.
A few years ago, I took my daughter to Dr. Wheeler for a nose job, and was highly impressed with the overall practice as well as his surgical skills. I have three other friends who have had services from him. I knew I would go nowhere else for my surgery. Everyone in the office was patient and kind, and both Dr. Wheeler and staff answered all of my questions. I would certainly refer Dr. Wheeler to others.
Dr. Smoot and Carmen were amazing! I felt completely comfortable, and hey answered all my questions and really spent a lot of time with me. The computer mock-up was amazing, that is such an amazing tool to see what my final results would resemble. LOVE IT!
Start to finish everything was amazing. I’m almost sad it’s over and done be. But I’m really happy with the results. I love the way my clothes fit. I feel so much more confident in my day to day life. I couldn’t be happier.
Mainly having to wait for 50 minutes to be seen. Not respectful of my time at all. Also what I want to feel about my surgeon is that he or she is an artist about body surgery. What every patient wants is to be reassured that her body is going to look fantastic afterwards. About how good the surgeon is at making the breasts look amazing, and the stomach look flat, and the belly button look normal. I was referred to Dr. Wheeler and that person said he is an amazing surgeon, but I was underwhlemed with his presentation of what he could do for me. Perhaps bedside manner doesn't translate into surgical skill, but that's all a patient has to go by is bedside manner. And there aren't as m any reviews on Real Patient as I would like to see.
Caring, competent staff & surgeons with excellent reputation for quality of procedures, etc.
Have been a patient of the practice since it’s inception. Wouldn’t think of going elsewhere for cosmetic surgery..
I’ve been under Dr. Wheeler’s care off and on for past 28 years. Always been caring, communicates his information well and each time he’s done a procedure... I’ve healed very well, with minimal scars.
Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Made me really comfortable and answered all my questions and concerns.
My boyfriend and I felt very rushed during the consultation. We prepared images of breasts that we liked and told the surgeon we wanted to show her to give a good idea of our vision but she didn't want to see them. As we were leaving we did get a chance to show the patient coordinator and she was receptive to them. There is a particular look I'd like with my new breasts and I want to make sure the surgeon I move forward with is very attentive to that so that we can discuss the right implants and incision.
I can't narrow it down to just one thing. My breasts are no longer saggy and the excessive skin and fat on my tummy is gone. To top it off, the scars are healing well! I was most nervous about the appearance of the scars after the procedure due to the darker pigmentation of my skin. But i am ecstatic that it is beautifully healing. Dr. Roark is amazing. His professionalism, attention to detail, and friendliness is always a great experience. The visit is topped with care with his main nurse, Sarah and team. I'm never treated like a number; it feels like family where people genuinely care about you, from start to finish.
The surgeon, the staff, the facility and the results are all top notch.
I have gone to this surgeon for many procedures over the past 20 years but I felt this one was the most serious one for me because this was dealing with my eyes. (I had never had anything done to my eyes before.) I am and have been exceedingly confident in Dr Smoot's abilities. Before my first surgery (tummy tuck), I remember hearing that his work was conservative and that I would not have to worry about appearing as though I had obviously had work done. That was true then and it has continued to be true. I am very happy with all of the work he's done especially when my friends tell me how good I look but can't see any evidence that I've had 'help!!' Dr Smoot gives me the assurance I need to be calm and positive before and after surgery.
Not there yet. Absolutely LOVE Dr. Brahme & Christina.. They've always made me feel like family.. I completely trust them & feel safe in their hands.
What they said my size would be after the surgery, and what I came out with is almost two full cups different.
Overall experience from Jan and scheduling, Ruth and Dr. Saltz. All were on time, caring and provided the information I needed. I can now wear shirts I could not before. I stand taller, more confident and no more back pain.
I am happy with my recovery and my results I am more comfortable with how I look
I walked in with little confidence when I came to wearing a swim suit. Now I feel like I look hot in a swim suit. After breast feeding two kids, I felt like I deserved to have my boobs look like they did before kids. Now they look even better then that.
I was very scared to do a breast aug because I liked my breasts the way they were but wanted them a little bigger. I chickened out of my breast aug last year and almost did again this year. If it wasn't for the nurse Cristina's honest care and ability to hear my concerns and validate my feelings I probably would have not gone through with it and forfeited another deposit! She assured me I would get exactly what I wanted and she would be in the room with Dr. Brahme to give a second opinion before deciding what was best. I couldn't be more happy! Everyone at the office was incredibly patient with me including Dr. Brahme! He is the absolute best at what he does!!
The results, of course! After the procedures performed by Dr. Roark, my appearance has improved drastically. I look and feel beautiful, better than I did at 21. While I am serious about diet and fitness, looking my best has motivated me to take even better care of my health. Also, the nurses and staff are all professional and friendly. They treat you like a queen. All this and the excellent skills of a talented surgeon like Dr. Roark made this a life changing experience for me.
I think I have always been a little anxious, or intimidated to visit a plastic surgery office. Now that I have done so, those anxious feelings were not necessary at all. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming in a professional way. Dr. Smoot answered all my questions and I trusted him completely. The day of my surgery went so smoothly and the care that was given to me was superb. Everyone was so nice! I also knew exactly what to do once I left the office and my recovery went very well. I felt comfortable at my followups and I am so pleased with the healing process and my resulsts. I have to say my eyes look great!! Having my eyes open up more is just what I needed to not always look so tired. I Thank you so much to Dr. Smoot and his great team at LJCSC.
The doctor and all the staff were extra nice, very helpful, and made me feel comfortable. I feel like I look better and overall feel more confident about myself.
Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth were PERFECT. Their highly professional, yet personal attention at both the pre and post surgery appointments were comforting, informative and really put me at ease. I know Dr. Saltz was extremely meticulous during surgery and I feel like I was fortunate to have her as my surgeon. Truly the best from all---including the receptionists to the patient coordinator as well.
Dr Roark is great. Very personable and real. My husband is thrilled.
I look 15 years younger! Excellent surgeon, wonderful results.
There really is not enough words to say about how wonderful my experience was. Each interaction with a staff member was great. Ruth was wonderful and personable. Dr. Saltz was great as well and I loved her honest approach. She was also personable and invested in me as a person. The end result was beautiful natural breasts. As well as a breast augmentation she did a nipple reduction. I feel so young and sexy again. I don't shy away from the mirror after a shower and I love going swimsuit shopping. LJCSC gave me back my confidence and I am so thankful I chose to trust such a personal surgery with this team of talented individuals. As a collective they truly care. The end result! Beautiful natural breasts and cute perky nipples! I had peace of mind and felt at ease throughout the entire process. I of course had some nervousness going in but Ruth was great about getting me through those moments and would call me back if I reached out and would remember details of our conversation even weeks after Id seen her last. I never felt like just another patient or a number. I felt valued as a person and patient.
great staff smoothness, how everything flowed
Giving me more confident, high esteem attitude in the office, to socialize with people. Received many compliment about the surgery results which are so good.
I was treated with kindness and respect throughout the entire consultation process. All administrative and medical staff provided me with thorough and easy to understand information and explanations.
I am straightening back my nose after being asaulted by my ex boyfriends.The nurses and doctor had been very kind and compassionate. I appreciated a lot that.
Dr Roark was very attentive. The whole experience was very rewarding The staff is amazing When doing elective surgery feeling comfortable is key
I was very satisfied with my experience because out of all the doctors I tried to find for my procedure, this office was the the place that didn't tell me that I couldn't schedule a consultation for over a month. I had my consultation with Dr. Wheeler and right then and there I knew that I did not need to look for another doctor and he was the right one for me. After my consultation I booked my surgery and it was all amazing after that.
Dr Brahme did an amazing job and listening to all my thoughts and concerns before the surgery. He made me feel very comfortable and so did his staff. I have more confidence and I feel more comfortablewith my body
The results are great! I feel better how I look.
The results are the single best thing! But how can I just single one thing out?! I felt informed, safe, comfortable and was extremely satisfied with every aspect of the process
The overall confidence that I was in good hands was not uncomfortable at all looking forward if I should need another procedure
I feel more confident in my work clothes. I am in my early 40's and was always flat chested, aside from a short while years back when I was nursing. My clothes actually fit better and I feel more 'womanly'. No more blouses getting stuck in the space between my padded bra and my skin.I am not embarrassed being in a bathing suit. While I haven't yet had the opportunity to slip off somewhere warm in a bikini, I have taken up swimming laps, and feel very comfortable in a one piece without any padding (this is something I never would have considered in the past).I feel as though having this procedure has made me want to take better care of myself overall. . I was very impressed with the office, it's level of comfort and cleanliness. Every single staff member I encountered during my visits, from the reception area on to the surgery suite, was amazing. Dr. Smoot, Carmen, and my pre-op nurse (with the long blonde hair) were so helpful and supportive. I never felt urged to go with a certain size implant, but did feel that I was being expertly guided according to what I wanted, which was a more 'natural' look. I felt that I was very well informed also, thanks to the video links that I was given prior to my consultation, and the physical booklets I was given during my office visits. I was also impressed with the state of the art technology used. The virtual images were priceless in getting a better idea of what the end result may resemble. The outcome of my procedure has been amazing! Thanks to your expertise and care, I am thrilled with the end result. Kind Regards, [name]
Dr. Roarke is the best!Very kind, he answers all my questions. I have referred him to all my friends asking if I know a good Plastic Surgeon.
Excellent experience. I have since scheduled my procedure. Ruth and Dr. Saltz are an excellent team.
Everything was awesome from my first consultation to my post op visits. Carmen is a doll, Dr Smoot is professional and kind and all the office staff are helpful and sweet. I was prepared for surgery and it was a wonderful experience. I am thrilled with my results. I had a lift with augmentation and one of my breasts was a bit larger than the other and Dr Smoot was able to fix that too!
I have had several procedures done by Dr John Smoot over the years and have always trusted his skill and conservative approach to his exceptional work and to my care. I believe elective surgery adds additional apprehension (tension, stress, worry) about the consequences of a paitent's decisions. When one is in the care of a physician such as Dr Smoot and his team, that weight is tremendously lightened which was absolutely true in my case.
I am extremely pleased with the kindness of not only the doctor but all of the staff. They all made this a wonderful experience for me. . I didn't think arm lift surgery is as common as the many other surgeries and I had lots of questions. Dr Brahme and his nurse Christina answered all of my questions thoroughly and really made me feel at ease. They explained what would take place pre-surgery, during surgery and post surgery. This really made me comfortable with my decision and very importantly with them as well. The surgery went fantastic! I received a telephone call from Dr Brahme himself that evening to see how I was doing. I have received the same support and kindness at my follow-up appointments. My surgery was two months ago and I couldn't be happier with my experience as well as the results!
Ruth and Dr. Saltz were so friendly and professional. They made me feel so confident in my decision to go through with my breast augmentation. They answered all my questions thoroughly and make a great team!
Dr Saltz and all her team are just Amazing i m very happy with my results My confidence is amazing
I liked everyone and they gave me confidence that things would be handled properly.
I am more confident and extremely happy with the outcome . I loved everything starting from the front desk to the rest of the staff. Dr. Roark was amazing and very professional, he listened to me and answered all my questions. I have recommended Dr. Roark to everyone I know. I am extremely happy
The service was excellent and everyone was very professional
Sutures came out the second day leaving a 2 inch opening in my scalp that would not stop bleeding. Doctor said it happens sometimes and it was because of the kind of sutures he was using. I still have very deep lines on my forehead between my eyes, but now I also have red rough spot as well. My mouth still has deep lines pulling down. No one thinks I look better at all. Over $20,000 and I don't look better.
Dr. Roark is amazing and very professional, I am very happy with my results and I am recommending him to everyone I know! Thank you dr and your staff so much for all your care and attention I had no pain
Very professional and caring staff memebers. . I was recommended to Dr.Wheeler from a friend of a friend. I went in for a consult and decided I was more then happy to schedule the surgery. Upon making a payment I did mention to the patient coordinator that I did NOT want to use my credit, and that I was fine paying half cash and the other half in payment through Health Care finance. Come to find out she ran my credit and my score was hit. Besides being upset about her hitting my credit score, I'm satisfied with my surgery and more then happy I chose Dr. Wheeler. He is such a blessing. If I decide to have any other procedures. I'll be taking into consideration about my credit being hit. She obviously was too hung over to clearly hear me say DO NOT RUN MY CREDIT, multiple times. I'm actually going to call the office and have them remove it somehow. I'm very upset about that. I believe the woman's name is Juliana.
I was very pleased with the organization of the company. Each person I interacted with was knowledgeable and always available to assist me. They provided patient education and post op education (with written materials). They assisted me in finding a home nurse for after the procedure (which was essential). The facility is clean and inviting. I was pleased that the anesthesiologist took the time to talk to me prior to surgery as well. Him doing so helped ease my nerves. They ensured my anxiety and pain were well managed. I showed the surgeon photos of my desires and we discussed what is a realistic outcome with my body. The final result is gorgeous! I went from flat saggy Size A breasts to perfectly full, round and high large 32DDD beasts. My tummy is flat and looks naturally toned. I am so pleased with how it turned out. Thank you everyone who assisted Dr. Saltz, thank you Ruth you rock, and thank you Dr. Saltz for your time and talent.
From the moment I booked the consultation I was greeted by friendly, professional, knowledgable staff. The surgeon and staff took their time to fully answer my questions. I felt like what my needs were important to the team.
Dr. Smoot and the nurses he works with were very friendly. I could tell they cared that I got the best results for my body type. I feel he was very clear and honest on what results were attainable for me and that made my post surgery experience very easy. I am thankful I chose him to perform my surgery and am very happy with my results.I do think at the pre op appointment the photos that are taken should be a full profile. I don't think I was able to visualize how I would look post surgery with just a shoulder to belly button picture and would have gone slightly higher in cc's if I saw how proportionate the implants were for my whole body.
I believe my problem was caused by my previous surgery. I had a breast reduction and my left areola did not survive the surgery, so I had a gaping hole in my breast that took months to heal, and left my left breast deformed, so after about 8 years of dealing with this, I went back to see if they would fix it, and they can fix it at a cost of 3600.00 I feel since the problem was caused by the surgery, I should not have to pay such a large amount. I really like Dr. Saltz but not the way this ended
The staff, office and Dr were all very nice and knowledgeable I just felt the Dr was not the right it for me.
Friendly staff who made me feel completely comfortable and happy with the results. Did not feel a thing during the surgery and no scarring.
Dr. Roarke is an experienced surgeon, which is important given that much of the surgery is art as much as it science. The outcome of my surgery (breast lift and tummy tuck) was better than expected. My breasts and tummy tuck are sculpted appropriately with my body. The staff is incredible. Kind, patient and attentive. The service was personalized to me. Dr. Roarke's nurse was so incredible. She was always there to help me before and after surgery, to answer all of my random questions.
The experience of staff and making me feel comfortable
Loved the attention to detail and how thorough everything was, felt like I was a part of the family from the beginning!
I feel comfortable with Dr Smoot. He performed my first breast augmentation. Office and staff are great.Recommendations were offered clearly. He answered our questions.
From my first phone conversation with Karla Watson to meeting Nurse Cristina Lindstrom, and all through my consultation with her and Dr. Brahme I felt as though I was amongst friends. Their attention and warmth were beyond my expectation. All my questions were addressed and answered to satisfaction, my fears relieved and I left with the feeling of time well spent.
The staff including the surgeon and nurse made me feel very comfortable during my consultation. They answered all my questions and gave me great recommendations, which were requested.
Wonderful communication and care from my surgeon and his nurse. Care surgeon took with pre surgery marking on areas for surgery. Lovely after care and quick response to questions. Great facility and wonderful employees. Good response to the very few questions I did have.They worked with me to help me understand the aftercare for laser, which I had along with my surgery.
Dr. Roark made me feel very comfortable. I like the fact that he has a lot of s experience and that the probcedure is performed with an anesthesiologist.
Beautiful look, take good care of patients
Dr. Roark is a life changer. He is a perfectionist and highly skilled. He takes his time with me in each appointment and I feel everything is going so well because of his care for me. His nurse Sarah has always been quick when I reach out to her with a concern. It's so amazing what a great efficient team they are. I always feel I can reach out to Sarah and she helps me through or orders the medication I need. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Roark, Sarah, and the rest of the team. My whole experience with each appointment since my surgery has been great. The time and care I have received and am still receiving is above what I expected. If I plan anything else in my future requiring surgery I will definitely request Dr. Roark. I trust him completely.
Professional. Experienced. Confident.
Everyone was very caring and made me feel very comfortable. Took time to explain and answered all my questions. Feel better about my appearance, more confident
I felt completely safe for the surgeon and all the other staff!
I’m very happy with my results and the care that was given to me along the way.
Wonderful service made me feel very comfortable answering all my concerns and questions. Felt they really listened and cared. Best place for anyone to go for cosmetic surgery. The staff and doctor were excellent
The friendliness and competence of everyone involved. I had a consult with a different surgeon prior to this consult. My experience with the person giving me the quote was so uncomfortable (she was snooty and almost condescending) that it didn’t matter how great everyone else was, I would never choose them. Everyone in your office was so professional and genuinely caring. Thank you.
Courteous & expert care. All staff extremely professional.
Dr Smoot and his staff were everything I could have imagined. I did thorough research before getting my BA and looked into many different places. Upon my consultation here, I knew that this was the place I wanted to go. They are absolutely professional, caring, and the facility is beautiful. I traveled from out of town to get my surgery and my coordinator and nurses never failed to check in via emails/phone calls to get me pumped and ready for my surgery. I am ecstatic with my results and am constantly told how natural my breasts look even just after a couple of months! Thank you to Dr Smoot and all of his staff. You guys are rockstars and I am excited to continue to keep in touch as I continue to heal.
very satisfied except for not being told about the swelling on my face especially my eyes. Surgery was Sept 12 and today I sill have blurring vision and eye lids hurt and are extremely swollen, don't remember anyone telling me what to except. Persons are saying I look oriental when they see me. It does make me laugh, all my family says the same thing. When will the swelling go down. Thanks great experience, it was a good job.
The entire staff was very personable and friendly. I felt like I was completely in good hands, especially with the Dr.
Dr. Saltz, Ruth and their team were amazing. They made everything very simple. I am only a few hours post op and I feel great, hardly any discomfort and I am easily able to move my arms above my head also, I feel like my boobs already look great! I cannot day enough great things about the team. They will always be my go to for all my cosmetic needs.
I felt at ease as soon as a walked through the door. The facility was clean and welcoming. My nurse Ruth was so easy to talk to and made the experience fun and was supportive. Dr. Saltz was also very knowledgeable and soothing and made sure I felt comfortable about my procedure. I'm so happy with my decision in choosing this team and would recommend them in a heart beat! Thank you!
They listened to me and did the procedure I had requested. The anesthesiologist did a great job, although I did wake up enough to be a little uncomfortable once during the surgery. I can see much more! I think my night vision is better as well because there is more light entering my eyes. I think I also look more alert and rested.
DJ is amazing and the definition of customer service provider. Sarah was professional and personal; perfect!
So far so good. I feel that I will be in good hands, I am at ease and comfortable. I am looking forward to my new contoured body!
The consultation I had at LJCSC was very complete. From the nurse to the doctor to the patient coordinator, all my questions were answered and then some. The staff are extremely knowledgeable in all areas...pre-op, post-op, pain mgmt., finance...anything you can think of to ask, they have the answers.
Great staff, fast responses to questions. Fantastic results!
The best thing, of course, is the results! Pre-surgery; at a time in my life when I wasn't feeling very positive about the way I presented myself to the public, and to some extent, family, and feeling like people didn't look you in the eye anymore, the staff at LJCSC turned all of this around. I was so very pleased at the way I was treated. Like a friend and girlfriend. Smiles from everyone, a comforting hand on my shoulder, sharing experiences and stories. Being asked questions about my life and family.This all helped and was so appreciated. Carmen, Sarah, Dr. Smoot were the BEST! A better than expected experience. I am truly grateful.
Felt comfortable. Everyone was very friendly. Surgeon seemed very experienced to achieve a natural look
The environment at LJCSC is so nurturing ... I looked forward to all of my follow-up appointments! Every bit of my experience was professional, positive and friendly. Dr. Brahme and the nurses put me at ease from consultation to pre-op to post-op. Thank you LJCSC!
In every way!!! Every person was respectful, interested, kind, thoughtful, OUTSTANDING!In my long life with over 20 surgeries and MANY doctors....this was the most awesome experience of the best treatment, best care, best medical staff, that I ever had.... I actually got tears in my eyes because I won't be seeing them. They made me feel that they all sincerely cared about me. I have never had such an experience with every member of the staff. And my doctor is a spectacular and sincere and talented man. I thank everyone and will keep their intentions in my prayers always.
A very pleasant experience. Nice to have a nurse involved in the consultation. I have used this doctor before and love him. He is very conscientious and conservative.
Friendly office staff, Great nurses an Dr. Roark is the best. Makes me feel better....l
Big fan of dr Roark, Brittany, Sarah and Shelly. Highly skilled staff that put me at ease before during and after all treatments. Highly recommend to family and friends
great results! amazing doctor and staff! more confident and no longer self conscious or ashamed of body
I think Dr. Saltz was very informative and very easy to talk to. Concerns I had were acknowledged and talked about. She has a great personality which makes me feel very comfortable.
Staff was amazing and results are perfect :) I feel so much more confident and content with myself.
It has boosted my self-esteem, given me better confidence in my appearance. Everyone is personable and plenty of time is given. I never felt like any of the staff was in a big hurry to move on. Things are explained extremely well, with written instructions to take home.
Dr Roark and staff are wonderful! I have also done cool sculpting with Lauren and
Dr. Smoot listened to what I wanted and he made recommendations I was comfortable with. I left all of my appointments feeling satisfied and listened to. I have no regrets for choosing to get my revision done.
Office staff very friendly and informative. the clinic runs on time. the staff and physicians are very knowledgeable and do great work! Really changed my life love my new breast implants and flat tummy. Amazing!!
Dr. Saltz, Ruth, DJ, and everyone else at LJCSC was very helpful and understanding with what I wanted to achieve. I always felt very comfortable throughout my encounter with LJCSC and Ruth did an outstanding job explaining thoroughly and answering any questions I had 24/7. Ruth seriously made me feel so comfortable and prepared me both before/after my first ever surgery. I am very thankful for Ruth because boy was I nervous! I had done my research so going into it I knew Dr. Saltz was the best of the best but I had no idea just how great she really is at her job. She might be God...if not, she's close to it!!! Dr. Saltz and Ruth are the ultimate power team! Dr. Saltz truly is a miracle worker and I will be forever grateful for her. She changed my life in such a positive way it is difficult to put into words. I don't have the perfect body or perfect this or that but she gave me the piece of the puzzle I have felt like I had never had before- true self love and confidence- and it shows! I'm a better person overall thanks to Dr. Saltz. I never imagined having beautiful boobs would help me feel more confident, assertive, and empowered like I feel now. I feel like I am finally the woman that I was meant to be and I owe it all to Dr. Saltz. I'm forever grateful! THANK YOU!!!
Dr. Saltz did a fantastic job! I was in and out quickly and the recovery has been painless. She has answered all of my questions and followed up with me promptly. After my breast augmentation I have experienced a surge of confidence. I feel comfortable in my own skin now.
Professional, knowledgeable, clean, comfortable setting, friendly staff.
Christina, Dr Brahme are a perfect team. The surgery is exactly what I wanted and needed. The results are better than I expected and I would rely on Dr. Brahme for any surgical procedures in the future. LJCSC rocks! The entire office staff are first class. My clothes fit again! I am confident wearing anything. My attitude about my body and life in general is positive.
Awesome results. Great communication and organization of staff. Friendly staff, clean environment. Felt very safe. Fabulous surgeon. Love the results!!!!
The staff at LJCSC are outstanding. From the reception desk to the nurses and doctors; everyone is outstanding. Dr Roark and Sarah were so incredibly helpful and accommodating. I couldn’t ask for more.
Friendly staff n doctor Well informed Well prepared before the procedure Able to view images on the tv screen Using high tech to present info to clients Making pre- post pictures
Everyone has been so helpful and caring and Dr. Wheeler's surgical skills are amazing!!!!
Mostly the results which were amazing! Scars are healing better than expected, and I couldn't be happier with my new body! Dr Brahme is a literal artist, the best in his field I'm sure! The results were exactly what I expected, if not better!
Well informed, and ecstatic with the results Dr. Saltz and nurse Ruth were the nicest!
Had the surgery very happy with all of the staff and how they treated me. Too soon to see complete results yet but what I did see was incredible. Important to understand if older 60 plus it does take a toll out of you.
Dr. Smoot and his staff were amazing! They went above and beyond to make sure that I felt comfortable through the whole process of surgery and even during post recovery! I feel so confident with myself everyday!
The entire staff was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Every one was patient and answered any and all questions with ease. Also for me it is scary going under and I felt quite relaxed due to the staff and anesthesiologist which was a big deal to me. I feel more like woman and more confident now.
I can't even type how satisfied I was. The service superb I would do a commercial on how fab they are at ljcsc Customer service aka VIP service it's unreal how fast & eager they are to provide you with that five star service
I paid all of my savings to receive a breast lift since they had dropped so much over the years. 2 months after the lift they were back to where they started and with hideous scars to accompany them
Dr. Wheeler is very thorough. The staff, especially Shelley, are all so helpful and friendly.
I already expressed my concern on the previous page. I really like my doctor, and the practice, as a whole. I just feel that the doctor didn't take responsibility for the mistake that he made with my surgery. Now I have spent time, money and am still not recovered, only to have the same type of issue that I went in for the doctor to relieve me of.
I had a great experience . I'm happy with the results . I'm satisfied with the experience .
Although complications with communication between office staff and procedure readiness the overall attentiveness of staff post-operation and dealing with some minor infections was above and beyond. My nurse and doctor were available by phone/text and made sure I was taken care of and made themselves available in my time of stress. Physical results are great, however I hope to have liposuction area fixed or atleast my questions/concerns about it addressed a 2nd post op next week Care team of Nurse Ruth and Dr Saltz went above and beyond to reassure me emotionally and made themselves available when I had concerns post-op healing. Their support truly made the difference in this experience.
Dr smoot and Carmen were wonderful, they were attentive, knowledgeable and informative-I recommend them to everyone! The surgery room was so comfortable and they very much prepared me for a comfortable recovery-and i LOVE the results!
Dr Roark and Sarah took a lot of time with me explaining everything and answering any questions that I had.
Overall it was a wonderful experience! I love how things came out and I love my doctor and my nurse they make me feel comfortable! I feel beautiful! It changed me a lot i feel great!
Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth were wonderful. They made the entire process seamless and comfortable, and were there to answer any and all questions I had. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering cosmetic surgery!
Every part of my experience here has been awesome. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and not at all selfie conscious (ashamed) about what I wanted to do. Every question/concern I had was answered and then some. The only downside was I wanted the mommy makeover but we decided here wouldn't be time to get my breasts done based on the other things I wanted done: lipo in my theighs and tummy tuck with lipo. It was also decided to do some filler to rescultp an area on my hips that was extremely disproportionate. I was very satisfied in the end with what Dr Saltz said we should do - the boobs can wait!!
I always felt safe, well informed, Dr. Smoot always listend carefully to everything I said. I felt valued and very comfortable. My nurse was great and everyone was very nice from the Doctor, my nurse (Carmen), the lady in the finance office, to the receptionist. I just felt welcomed. I got the results that I had wanted for about 10 years!!
The information provided to me about my procedure before, during, and after my surgery was easy to understand and comprehensive. My eyelid surgery has made me happy to look at my face in the mirror. People that haven't seen me in awhile comment on how rested and alert I look.
The nurses were amazing and I can't tell you how happy I am with Dr. Wheeler. He is so kind and appreciate everything he has done.
Everyone took the time to explain the procedures and answer my questions. This listened to my concerns. I did not feel rushed during consultation. They talked about alternatives.
All of my questions were answered and I felt comfortable with the staff.
Everyone, no exceptions, was kind, professional and very knowledgeable. I can't imagine anyone not being satisfied with the care and services provided here. I just feel better.
My results! Christina is absolutely fantastic. She was available for me if I had questions and was very caring throughout the process. Dr Brahme is very friendly and professional and has great communication skills. Pleasure doing business with his center.
The doctor & staff really make you feel comfortable. Dr Brahme and Cristina listened to my concerns, answered all questions and really made it a comfortable & relaxing consultation.
Love Dr. Brahme, Christina, Yvette, Janelle, and the entire staff. Respect and kindness abound.
I love everything about La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery! Dr. Brahme and Christina are amazing. I will definitely be back and wouldn't ever dream of going anywhere else. My breast augmentation made me a new person. I am so happy I did it.
The office and Dr.Smoot are amazing! I feel amazing and it was so easy
Made to feel very comfortable. Staff friendly. Onlything more helpful would be t advise patients to have a magnifying glass available the first night if you use glasses for reading (so you can see your phone etc) and to buy this pillow from Amazon. : Side Sleeper Pro Air Pillow Price:$30.35 + $6.35 shipping. It made the whole process not comfortable, but way more bearable. Has a hollow for your ear, and molds to the back of your head.
Professionalism and knowledge of Dr. Saltz and Ruth, RN as well as all other staff I interacted with. They were patient with me and the many questions I had. I felt as though I was in good hands with a team that practices cutting edge medicine that is backed by evidence based practice. I am looking forward to my surgery in the near future.
Friendly, informative, and attentive front office staff and patient coordinator personnel. Kind, caring, and thorough medical staff. I trust Dr. Wheeler. He is dedicated, detailed, and has a calming presence during every appointment. I felt confident that I was in good hands, from initial consultation to the day of my surgery to all my follow up appointments. I even prettier than before my surgery
The entire staff have been incredibly helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Highly impressed.
From my first appointment with the Doctor and his wonderful , helpful staff to the surgery and the care and results I can't say enough about the excellent care,results and aftermath care. My breast reduction has given me such a new found freedom. I can swim, do my yoga and aerobics without my breasts handicapping me. My appearance and self confidence are so much better now.
Dr. Roark is an exceptional Plastic Surgeon. He was at all times caring, warm and knowledgeable, demonstrating both confidence and humility as it relates to his craft. He possesses a rare combination of character and skill that only magnifies the quality of care he provides.
Dr. Brahme and I were on the same page right from the get go. He showed me a before and after picture of my nose, and it was exactly what I wanted.
From beginning to end I was blown away with the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff. My consultation was very informative and Dr. Smoot really took the time to answer all my questions. I had my first consult with Dr. Smoot and the other three didn't even come close to impressing me. His staff is very attentive in responding to emails and phone calls. I ended up having 3 consultations with him or his nurse before I made my decision. My results are amazing! Nobody believes me when I say I got implants because they look so natural. I've already recommended him to my friends. My confidence has improved tremendously! Clothing shopping has become much more enjoyable now that shirts flatter my body better. I am constantly getting compliments on how nice my breasts turned out. It was definitely worth it.
I felt like the office, the doctor, and his assistant were very attentive to my concerns, listening to my fears, and giving me valuable and honest answers to my questions. They were very reassuring! Their explanations, the surgery itself, and the follow up were all done in a highly professional manner. I had heard that the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre was very good and they truly were! I had been very anxious about even inquiring about any cosmetic surgery, but I am so pleased that I had the procedure done. Now I look years younger than most of my high school classmates. I am very happy with how I look! Being in the dental profession for forty years, I have had very close-up"relationships with my patients, many of whom had had past cosmetic surgeries. Many of the "outcomes" didn't look good...they looked pulled, stretched, and almost looked like burn victims (those with multiple surgeries). I had earlier thought that I would never go through such a procedure! But when I had concerns about my own looks, I very anxiously scheduled a consultation. The rest is history! I feel much younger and confident in my looks! "
I have been coming to LJS since 95 when it was in LJ on Prodpect (Dr Saltz). I love everything about this practice, especially the doctors (Saltz and Brahme) and nurses ( Ruthie and Christina). Over the years I have referred family and friends. The procedures have been perfect and exceeded my expectations.
Overall great experience with Dr. Saltz and Ruth! What a great team and I am pleased with my results. Patient communication and care!
My entire experience was incredible. My surgical outcome is outstanding and my surgeon was incredible. They far exceeded my expectations.
very professional, I am very happy with the results it was exactly what I expected
The waiting time for the doctor seemed long compared to amount of time for follow-up exam. Love my new boobs!
Great environment and very caring about patients and your overall experience being smooth and as easy as possible. Feeling more confident about yourself everyday.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They kept me informed (while I was conscious) of each step in the procedure. They took plenty of time with me and I never felt rushed.
I do like the profile view of my nose, and it does look very natural which was quite a relief to me. My results are what I am truly dissatisfied with. The team and facility was truly great! Dr. Roark seems extremely knowledgeable and very kind, but I feel like I am just not seeing what I want to see. I do know that a rhinoplasty takes time, and is not an immediate fix. It has almost been 3 months though and the swelling has gone down a lot, but I am still disappointed in my results. I tried to voice these concerns, but Dr. Roark and the nurse reassured me that with time it will look better. I am giving it the benefit of the doubt, but my 3 month appointment is coming up and I will voice my honest opinion and hopefully something can be done about it.
It wasn't that I was not satisfied I liked the doctor and the staff I met I just decided to go with a different doctor.
Dr. Roark along with all the nurses and staff had a great attitude, were incredibly knowledgeable and happy to help. I got the explanations I needed and answers to all my questions!
I am a returning patient of Dr. Roark's. I recommend him to all my friends. I trust him implicitly. I plan to have my tummy tuck scar revised but am waiting till I need some other work done on my face and neck. Dr. Roark did suggest what he would do in those areas but I think I will wait a little longer before I schedule the surgery. It was a little more expensive then I anticipated but I am assuming the added cost is due to the anesthesia. I would like a future estimate to itemize the costs rather than just giving me a total cost.
Dr. Smoot and his staff always make everything so easy. I feel so comfortable and love seeing the familiar faces like Carmen whenever I go in for a follow-up visit. I got the results I wanted.. I've always had a small chest and now I feel more like a woman. Thanks to Dr. Smoot!
The staff was very helpful and attentive to any questions or concerns that arose in the consultation. The technology was amazing that actually could show before and after pictures without even having the procedure done yet.
The Surgeon was very thorough in explaining the procedure. He seemed genuine in my concerns.
Instructions prior to procedure were clear, post op instruction also clear. Every staff member friendly, and I felt I was in good hands throughout- no worries! It has had a positive effect on my vision as well as my facial appearance.
Everything was handled with care and discretion and comfort.
I was very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Smoot and the other clinical practitioners because they were all friendly and made me feel comfortable even right before the surgery. I was very nervous the day of surgery but the nurse I forget her name but she was keeping my mind off surgery and was very kind. Dr. Smoot was very professional and kind as well. I feel more confident wearing clothes I could never wear before, and I also feel more proportionate to my body shape and size.
Great service, great staff. Very reachable and respond quickly and thoroughly. The breast augmentation results were amazing and exactly what i wanted The sense of care and urgency they had towards me when I had the hematoma
The experience that I had was more than I had hoped to have. The staff made me so comfortable and made me feel that I was in good hands with Dr. Roark and he was the one if those doctors you can fall into his hands and know everything is going to be ok. I will have more surgery with him and I'm recommending him to my friends. My tummy tuck is healing so well and I didn't have that much pain after surgery that I was astounded with his work. Thank you Dr. Roark!! Well the recovery of the tummy tuck was awesome, I thought I was going to be in so much pain and I wasn't. The staff and Doctor was made me feel at ease.
This was my third time back to have a cosmetic related procedure done could have gone to many other practice's but keep returning because they are very professional and do exactly what I ask of them. Dr Smoot is by far my favorite plastic surgeon and I will continue to use him for all my plastic surgery needs.
dr. brahme and dr. haas were incredible and i really felt connected to my post-op nurse, sarah? i was soooooo scared and all went just smooth as could be :)
I am a repeat patient. I have great things to say about. Dr. Roark
The price was way over what I was estimated and I felt the doctor was more about her reputation than the patients happiness
Cristina is amazing! She shared so many helpful tips and suggestions. Dr. Brahms is also extremely supportive and kind.
Tummy Tuck: Dr. Smoot is an excellent plastic surgeon. The results are excellent and he made a new, normal looking belly button with no scar! This was important to me because I looked at a lot of belly buttons online and it's a dead giveaway that a lot of women had a tummy tuck because of their fake looking belly buttons. Carmen was great keeping in contact pre and post op and answering any of my questions. The anesthesiologist listening to my concerns and I did not get sick post op. That was nice! The operating room nurses were very nice and caring. They made you feel safe. Price? Yes the price is on the high side. But you get what you pay for. Don't bargain shop with something as important as surgery. Get the best results the first time around. If you're having a procedure by Dr. Smoot you will be very happy. Good Luck! The single best thing about the whole tummy tuck procedure is... it's over! And I can't wait to show off the results this summer.
Facility was clean and staff was exceedingly friendly. Was very impressed with all staff I interacted with before, during and after consultation.
The surgeon displayed his knowledge very well, he was patient, and he made me feel very comfortable. His staff were just as amazing, as well.
All staff were friendly and approachable. Dr was great! I am still deciding what to do.Its a lot of money and takes planning of time on more then just my part. I would recommend this staff to everyone. I was very satisfied with the answers and was assured I would receive proper care. If I had a career to do over again I would work for a plastic surgeon! Everybody seems to love the job!Thank you
Dr. Brahme performed my initial breast augmentation surgery 20 years ago. He did such an excellent job the first time, I didn't think twice about locating him again for my revision surgery. Trust is an important thing to me. You have to trust that your surgeon is willing to listen to you and your needs and advise you when necessary. I knew Dr. Brahme would take great care of me and you can't put a price on that. He is worth his weight in Gold. I highly suggest him for your surgery needs. You will not regret it. The results are beyond what I imagined. After 7 weeks post op, you can barely see the scars from the revision, which was my main concern.
The office was very professional and attentive, but the fee for surgery with the highest I didn't countered and more than I am able to spend.
Very professional staff. Dr Wheeler is such a great surgeon and so humble. Love the office. just a great experience
Very clean, EASY procedure. So comfortable I did not experience an ounce of pain during the entire thing. 3 months post op my nose is still healing and I am still getting use to my nose but it looks amazing
Dr.Roark and his staff are great! I was a little apprehensive about going into a plastic surgery office, but they made me feel very comfortable. I had a breast augmentation and was really set on how I wanted them to look and size & Dr.Roark puts in 150% on getting you as close as possible to the end result you want. Im Definitely happy with how they turned out and would definitely go back in the future! Dr.Roark and his staff really made me comfortable I was so nervous.
Im very satisfied so far with the results. I also feel the staff were very accommodating and patient with me. I previously had issues that were causing me discomfort I think the surgery has helped to resolve that.
Everyone at Dr. Saltz's office was incredibly warm, inviting and knowledgeable. I was nervous going in to my consult and not even sure I wanted to do a breast augmentation. Once the consult was over, I was ready to book it! They answered all of my questions and listened to what I wanted instead of trying to push a specific size or look onto me. The surgery went perfectly and it's now been about 3 months and I am loving my new boobs!
Lori Saltz and Ruth Van Arsdell are amazing! I am recommending them to everyone that has asked. My boobs are perfect!
The dr. And nurses and payment management that I dealt with were all extremely helpful and caring to my needs!! The size I am After my breat reduction
Everyone is caring and skilled attentive and professional So far so good!
staff were very responsive and caring.... absolutely impressed with entire process so far my results are not fully done yet, still healing but so far my flat stomach
All staff are professional. A conversation with all staff is warm and friendly with information of all procedures.
The professionalism and caring attitude of your entire staff is always consistent and very comforting.
I am highly satisfied with my breast augmentation procedure but not as much with the liposuction procedure, still satisfied though
Had to drive around the parking structure approx 10 mins before finding a spot. Don't like to pay for parking.
DR. WHEELER TOTALLY EXCEEDED ALL MY HOPES. His work is perfection. Everything about my experience was amazing. If you need anything done Dr. Wheeler is the one. I look 20 years younger .
Going in for any type of surgery is always going to get the best of your nerves, but everyone at LJCSC made me feel at ease from beginning to end. I felt excited instead of nervous and very confident throughout the entire process. I'd have to say the staff. Dr. Smoot and his assistant Carmen really made the entire process an amazing experience. The professionalism and true care for the patient was apparent every step of the way and I really don't think I could have been in better hands.
Since 2 weeks post op I have been very sick. Lungs/breathing and coughing. I'm not sure if it's related but I've yet to get better.
This was my third face life with Dr. Wheeler. I could not be more satisfied. Results always as expected and a true sense of safety. I wouldn't go anywhere else or to anyone else. Exceptional. Thank you Self esteem is restored and a sense of confidence to face each day.
Dr Roark took his time and made sure my fillers were even and perfect.
Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing. They took into consideration my concerns and addressed all the questions I had regarding the procedure. No detail was missed and every part of the procedure was explained to me. I felt informed and very safe going into the surgery. Recovery steps were very plainly described as well. The results were simply what I was hoping for and even better! The shape is beautiful.
My overall experience was great! Ruth and Dr. Saltz were great to work with and made me feel extremely comfortable with determining what was best for me.
Great Hospitality and amazing care. The staff is very welcoming and makes a comfortable enviornment to be in! It is all great! the scarring is barely noticable.
I thought everyone was extremely professional. Absolutely loved Carmen. Very warm, considerate, and compassionate. Dr. SMOOT'S the best. I love my resultss. [name]
Most of the wrinkles on forehead and between eyebrows are gone! I still have wrinkles in the crows feet area!!! Which, I did not have the very first time seeing Dr. Roak, which is why I went back to him!
loved the surgeon and her assistant very informative personal care .
Professional, friendly, informative staff
I have had several revisions over the years, always some sort of problem. Not the surgeon's lack of experience.
Satisfied is an appropriate response; it doesn't mean anything was wrong.
Dr Wheeler and his staff were AMAZING. They were kind, caring, and informative. They made me feel comfortable and like I knew them forever
Very professional staff, well kept facility, high quality care and service
I'm happy with the surgeon and all the nurses. What I'm extremely unhappy and some what chocked about is how the coordinator treated my case as far as scheduling and payments. She was extremely pushy that I'd schedule the appointment although I was insecure due to a long upcoming hike a few weeks out. She was so insensitive and said thing last like anyone can do the hike and you'll be perfectly fine and recovered by then. Tried to get me to scheduled less than a week out so I'd have enough time to recover. She then gave me the price... I told her I'd like to discuss with my husband before making a decision. Then she went on about how she's done procedures without even telling her husband! Really?! It's not about you at all was my only thought! I was given a price, talked to my husband, and we agreed it was a bit too much outside of what we had in mind walking in to the consult. I emailed Juliana and informed her that I won't be doing it. She then gave me $400 off if I did the procedure the same month. I once again discussed with my husband and we said that would be more 'okay'! Contacted Juliana again. Now she said they don't have any appointments left early enough for me hike so I'd have to do it when I get back. I asked if she'd honor the price and she said no. Really?! First you push me and then you can't honor a price because it's happening just a few weeks out?! I told her I needed to think about it again and after that I heard nothing from her!
Procedure was a mini tummy tuck. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was more thansatisfied with the results. This is the best decision I ever made as far as cosmetic surgery.[name]
The whole process was easy and efficient. It was very clear to me what was to happen and how. Everyone was very clear and friendly.
Excellent support given before and after surgery. Felt well taken care of. Very happy with results and the care I received.
Dr. Brahme & his staff were all extremely helpful and kind. They answered all of my questions and gave my all of the information I needed and more. I left there feeling completely confident that he would do a fantastic job. I will highly recommend him to anyone looking for any type of plastic surgery.
Dr Smoot and all of his staff were consistently helpful and professional, as well as very friendly and kind. I could not be more pleased with my experience there. My breast revision, lift, and the fat transfer to my cheeks have given me more confidence that I look my best. Since the revision included a decrease in implant size, my clothes fit better and I'm physically more comfortable. My husband is also very pleased with the surgical outcome.
Everything about Dr. Roark and his team were outstanding. I was never worried about my surgery. I knew within minutes of meeting the team that this was where i wanted to habe my surgery. They were all very attentive and patient with all my pre and post surgic I am more than satisfied with what my procedure has done for my self confidence and my look. I never thought i could be this happy with my body and my decision to go through with this surgery.
Everything from start to finish was met with high customer service, and the end result is everything I wanted and more. I am so happy with the results and how respectful and professional the whole experience was. I have so much more confidence, and I feel like this was the body I was meant to have!
This is the second surgery with Dr Saltz. My first being a breast augmentation 12 yeas ago. I still remember the surgery experience and still have a great result many years and several kids later. I decided to go back to her for a tummy tuck and again I was not let down. Dr Saltz and Nurse Ruth were very upfront with me on expectations, results and risks. There was no pressure to set up the surgery, which made me feel comfortable with deciding to proceed rather than the feeling of being sold into it. The pre-op appointments were informative and again I left mentally prepared. Surgery day Dr Saltz was there to go over everything we decided on again. She definitely put any nerves to ease. Post surgery, Nurse Ruth came to my house to check in me and answer any questions I had. I could not believe that kind of patient care! As recovery continued Nurse Ruth and Dr Saltz were available for any questions or concerns I had. I feel that this open communication line helped keep my recovery smooth. I am 3 months post-op now with a body I didn't even have before I got married! I am extremely happy with my results and they will only continue to get better as the swelling subsides. I highly recommend Dr Saltz and her team. I have been saying how great she is for breast augmentation for years and will now recommend her for tummy tucks! Thank you again Dr Saltz! I'm sure my husband thanks you too. I can wear anything and everything I want to now with confidence. I don't have to think about my tummy lumps and bumps anymore. And I can wear jeans again because those lumps and bumps are gone now.
Everything was perfect great people awesome costumer service Yes I feel more secure and beautiful
The entire process went so smoothly and the staff (from receptionist to surgeon) was exceptional and I felt that I was treated like a valued client. The surgeon was experienced yet spoke to me in terms that were easy for me to understand. I had my own nurse who called me frequently both before and after surgery and was always available either by phone or email for questions. Pricing was slightly higher than other providers however I think the slight premium was worth it given service and results. I'm very happy with results and will absolutely return for any additional procedures. pre-op preparedness. I was provided with so much info on what to expect and all of my questions were answered such that I did not have any fear of surgery.
Dr.Smoot and Carmen were amazing and a great team. I always felt comfortable and trusted all they said
Dr was amazing and so was the staff! I went in insecure and left feeling most beautiful than ever with confidence.i highly recommend him! I feel so much better about my self!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Smoot and his staff. Everyone was very friendly and he was able to get me in for surgery on the date I really needed. I am extremely happy with my new boobs. I will definitely tell friends about him and will be a repeat customer I was so impressed with the anesthesiologist. I woke up feeling completely normal and the recovery from anesthesia was the best I have ever had!!
It was a great experience from beginning to end. I loved it and have already referred a number of friends.
It was an easy transition and easy to understand what all needed to be done. I was very comfortable which helped me not feel so scared I am more confident in myself as a person and feel better about my overall appearance
Start to finish, everyone was professional and courteous. The result was great. In lots of little ways. I'm much more self-confident in my body.
Great bedside manner of surgeon. Skilled surgeon. Clean and professional facility. Result was what I communicated and asked for.
Dr. Roark and his nurse, Sarah, made me feel extremely comfortable and talked me though the whole procedure and the surgeon's vision. They made me aware of what I should expect after the surgery as well. They are great to work with!
Dr Wheeler was incredibly knowledgeable. He spent sufficient time with me and I felt very comfortable with him. The nurses were Fantastic. Jalayne was always quick and thorough in answering questions that I would email to her.
I was highly satisfied because Dr. Smoot was professional, knowledgeable and also very easy to speak with.
My results are wonderful Jalayne is so wonderful
For me, the most important thing at the clinic is people the way they treat me, and I loved it. I'd definitely schedule the appointment for surgery but can't keep up with the rates even though 0% finance was offered. But I definitely like Dr. Smoot's approach, vision, and suggestions he made.
Dr. Roark and his staff are absolutely awesome. They are always polite, professional, and caring. I also like that Dr. Roark educated me on a couple of other procedures that I haven't tried but would like to in the future. Thank you so much! Dr. Roark knows exactly where to place the botox. My heavy lines have softened and I feel like my face looks more awake!
Made a last minute appointment, there was an opening, and had a wonderful consultation and facial. Very professional and friendly.
I got great results, better than i had with other providers elsewhere. No forehead wrinkles
The Doctor made me feel very confortable and everything that he explain to me made me feel he new what he was doing. Sara is also very helpful and kind just made me feel very welcome.
everyone showed me how much care and concern they had the whole time..before and after surgery... so happy with LJCSC...THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!! feel beautiful!@ age 63..everyone tells me i look like im in my 40s....
The experience was awesome. They took me in at the last minute when I was downstairs for a follow up visit with Dr Brahme. The office was extremely professional and friendly.
Dr. Wheeler and the Staff were beyond Magnificent and the surgery was the best anyone Doctor could provide. I would recommend Doctor Wheeler to anyone Best Doc ever
Very professional, I had breast augmentation & coolscup Youthful & natural breast implants
Dr. Brahme and Christina are excellent. They made me incredibly comfortable and at ease. They were patient, kind and genuine and answered all my questions fully. I like them both immediately and felt like I was in great hands.
Dr. Wheeler's excellent surgical abilities and his professionalism and experience. He is very thorough and explains things with great detail.Jalayne Torres is the best nurse I have ever had. She is caring and gentle when removing stitches. She follows up and checks on me periodically. I really feel that I have great care with Dr. Wheeler and Jalayne.
I had no problem with my surgery. But I was told that I would get a Halo Laser treatment after at the valve of $2000.00, I went to the pre treatment appointment and they set up a appointment for March 30 I drove all the way from Lake Havasu City Arizona and they told me they could not do the treatment because I had Olive skin color. So they did a little laser on my nose only. Did not thinks that was a $2000.00 gift. [name]
Would have liked to see more before and after photos. I felt the push for making an appointment was a little money hungry". BUT, you get what you pay for, I know by past experience."
I was highly satisfied overall but there were minor set backs to my experience that made it slightly less than perfect.
Great experience and love the results
Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I always felt very comfortable and not pressured.
Dr. Brahme, Christina and the OR team were amazing! From my consult to the post-op process, I was very impressed. I am a registered nurse and they explained everything in detail and left me with no unanswered questions. I was most happy when Dr. Brahme personally called me the same evening of my procedure and the day after to check on how I was doing. If I were to have another procedure, I would be back with Dr. Brahme and his team 100%!
Was not given options or personalized suggestions. Felt as if the procedure was standard and everyone gets the same thing. Not what I wanted to feel from my PS for breast augmentation.
The whole team was professional and made me feel respected. They listened to my concerns and provided excellent care. I thought my nurse was great - she helped me with a few questions after surgery too by text. When I got a fever the night after my procedure, my surgeon called me after hours to check on me. It was a fast and easy process. I was ready to have the surgery and we got the ball rolling right away. Other doctors said I'd have to be on the calendar for almost a year before having the procedure. Each step of the way was also very procedural and I was given clear instructions for personal care before and after. I thought the whole process was well developed and executed.
Dr Roark was very personable, approachable and thorough. I loved that he focused only on the area of my concern and did not try to persuade me to get other procedures that I did not seek out. He is an outstanding surgeon and his nurse Sarah is great also.
The receptionist was very friendly. Dr. Smoot was very engaging and thorough. His assistant was nice and helpful. The lady I spoke to about financial options was very helpful and also thorough. Overall a great experience
Very good pre and post operation communication. I feel much less self conscious about some facial issues that were bothering me before the surgery.
Everyone and everything was great!No surprises at all.Very professional group!
I would like to have seen more options for my rhinoplasty. I was just given a picture of what it would look like with no other options
Very nice people who listen to what you have to say. They then try deliver what you want. Very pleased!
As I mentioned before, dr. Saltz was extremely rude to me ever since the surgery. Because I noticed that my breast are significantly at two different sizes. She never tried to listen to me, never expressed compassion or any kind of understanding. When last time I saw her she came in the room and in 1 minute walked out of the office. Which almost made me cry. And I haven't seen her since. I was able to meet with dr. Smoot, who confirmed that my breasts are different (my right breast missing 50cc) and gave me a quote of $2000 dollars in order to even my breasts out.
From the beginning I felt comfortable with Dr. Smoot. The nurse answered all my questions and the patient coordinator made everything like payments very easy to understand. Everyone was very accommodating. I was nervous about going through such a significant surgery but they put my worries at ease. The recovery process was smooth and I am very happy with my results. The only thing I would change is more imitative from the staff to follow up and check in. It has been 4 months since my surgery and they only followed up with me one time thus far.
Friendly staff and doctors. Listened to my questions/concerns and knew what was best for in regarding get size. I was very anxious before surgery and they put me at ease
Enthusiastic staff and knowledgeable in all questions asked plus more. Clean facility and a soft sense of humor helped the entire process be enjoyed rather than counted each second down. Wonderful work from the surgeon, could not have imagined a better outcome.
I have wanted a breast reduction since I was in high school, which was many years ago. I am so much more comfortable now and love my new look! I had complete confidence in the team from the moment of my first contact. I had no anxiety or second thoughts. It was nothing but a positive experience with everyone.
Feeling more womanly and confident! Your staff is friendly and personable. I am always greeted by a welcoming front desk personand offered parking validation. The waiting area is comfortable, but luckily I never have to wait long for my appointments. Dr. Brahme and his nurses were polite and worked with my best interest in mind. I am extremely satisfied with my surgical results and the offered after care.
I received excellent service,and Dr Smoot was fantastic. I would recemend him to anyone in need of his services. This is the second time I had this procedure Last time was about 15 years ago
I know that Dr Roarke and his staff see hundreds of clients. Even though I saw him over 15 years ago, he didn't make me feel uncomfortable for my requests or concerns. The atmosphere was very professional yet casual. I have been in other offices for other reasons in the area and although beautiful the atmosphere seemed almost cold. La Jolla Surgical Center provides a good combination of both warmth and professionalism.
Everyone at LJCSC made me feel extremely comfortable from the moment I stepped into the office. Each person I came into contact with, from the receptionist to the nurse to Dr. Saltz and the patient coordinator was so friendly and happy to answer any and all questions that I had. The entire process was positive and I left feeling confident that they would take care of me if I chose to proceed with the procedure.
The office is cozy and warm, not at all like a hospital environment. The staff are extremely friendly, welcoming, and upbeat, taking the 'nervousness factor' out of visiting a surgery center. The nurse was very forthright about her own experience and made me feel at ease. The doctor I saw was very professional and competent, but at the same time was very personable.
Dr. Saltz is professional, honest, attentive to detail, and to the point. Ultimately, I felt I could trust her and that she would deliver her best work. Even though she was uncertain that she could reach perfection in my situation, she gave me the confidence to move forward with the surgery.
The surgeon really listened to what my husband and I wanted and he exceeded our expectations.
Dr Smoot listened to what I wanted and gave excellent advice. Carmen is outstanding!!! from beginning to end this entire office has been professional, yet friendly. Efficient and caring.
Great experience. All staff and doctor were amazing. Listened to all my needs.
I felt I was in excellent hands and I knew I was in the right place. I would not have done this with any other doctor.
The staff was very attentive and accommodating. Jaylene was wonderful.
My meeting with dr wheeler pre-op, he spent a lot of time with me and took copious notes; I really felt like he wanted to make sure he got it just right. . This was my third rhino- Dr. wheeler understood and executed what needed to be done, unlike prior experiences
The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. The surgeon was also very informative, patient in answering my questions, and had a warm bedside manner. He performed my last surgery and I have every confidence in him. He is phenomenal!
I Loved Sr. Saltz. I felt very comfortable and that she has my best interest in mind.
The staff was great. Made sure I was comfortable and had every question I asked answered. Dr. Roark did an amazing job.
I can't say enough good things about Dr Saltz and Ruth her nurse, both are wonderful. At my consultation they both made me feel so at ease with my decision. I'm very happy with my procedure and results thus far.
I have never had a consultation or surgery with any doctor as thorough and detail oriented as Dr. Wheeler. He listens to concerns and give great explanations about procedures and answers any questions pertaining to health as it relates to procedures. He never made me feel hurried or that I wasn't important. He treated me like a doctor who cared about my well being, and that is not always the case in today's world.Jalayne Torres, Dr. Wheeler's assistant is the nicest and most caring nurse I have ever had. She answers e-mails and helps whenever there is a question or problem. I never have had to worry about getting hold of Dr. Wheeler or Jalayne when I have had a problem.
Dr. Smooth made me feel comfortable. I trusted his opinion.
The whole thing start to finish was great. Loved the nurses and surgeon.
I've had other procedures done with this office and all of my interactions with everyone are always top notch! Everyone is knowledgeable, pleasant, and accommodating.
I had anxiety concerning surigical infections. Dr Smoot was able to ease my anxiety and explain the procedure thoroughly. I am going to schedule the surgery once I have saved enough.
The doctor and staff members were very thorough, very kind and very educational!
I know about Dr Wheeler from previous years when I worked for plastic surgeons in San Diego. I like his reputation. I will be scheduling, hopefully, in the near future.
