[Consultation Review] [Highly satisfied with] The level of comfort and trust I have in Dr. Saltz.
They are the perfect size and look so natural. I forget that I had surgery because of how amazing they look they are so wonderfully and naturally done. I couldn't be happier.
I am highly satisfied with my results. Dr. Saltz is such a professional, very straight to the point, didn't try to influence my implant size, she let me decide what suits me better. The entire experience starting from initial appointment to waking up in the recovery room was as smooth as possible. And her nurse Ruth, she was so comforting whenever I had doubts about them being too high up or not dropping as fast as I thought they would. Highly satisfied!
[Consultation Review] I was a bit nervous going into the consultation, as I've never had any type of surgery before and didn't know if I would be a good candidate. Dr. Saltz and Ruth provided a very comfortable space to talk openly and ask any questions I had. By the end of the consultation I felt excited and confident going forward with my surgery. I would recommend them to anyone!
[Consultation Review] Very thorough, took their time and didn't feel rushed even though it was virtual.
[Consultation Review] I've worked with both Dr. Saltz and Ruth for my first augmentation. They are the best. Make you feel completely comfortable and address all questions and concerns.
Dr. Saltz is a perfectionist and listened to my needs. I explained that I wanted my breast augmentation to look natural, and yet give me a lift and volume as though nothing was surgically done. She nailed it and I couldn't be more pleased! I am thrilled with my results and her nurse, Ruth answered many questions along the way.
The process was smooth. I am extremely satisfied with the final results.

[Consultation Review] The staff was pleasant; made me comfortable & at home. Dr. Saltz was honest and down-to-earth.
I love the way my breasts look! The whole process went very smoothly. Everything Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth told me that was going to happened, happened. There were no surprises and I appreciated that.
[Consultation Review] The gals on the Zoom were so nice and comforting! I feel very safe and I can't wait to have my surgery.
I realized that during the in-office consultation (when I was sized), we didn't talk about profile of the breasts. It was decided for me through text with a nurse. One breast is now larger than the other. When I was sized, the doctor used sizers that were high profile, making me think that it will be really out there so I decided on a smaller implant. If the sizers were true to size, my choice would have been different. Since the doctor decided to use moderate profile implants, moderate profile implant sizers should have been used at the consultation.
From the consultation through the post op visits, everything went smoothly with professionalism, friendliness and a sense of humor that makes me feel very comfortable, and at ease with the staff and surroundings. I feel I am with persons I can trust and discuss any concerns I may have.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz is simply the best in the field.
I enjoyed meeting and chatting with the providers and found they were very patient with me as I was having difficulties with Zoom.
All questions were answered and both seemed knowledgeable. Dr. Saltz and Ruth were friendly.
I expected more of a hands on approach to helping me make the final decisions of the surgery. Dr Saltz seemed rushed and even looked at her watch to signal to her nurse to wrap it up. No pictures were taken and I didn't leave feeling like I felt confident about my procedure.
The care that I received before, during and after the surgery was amazing. Everyone was friendly and attentive.
[Consultation Review] I felt very comfortable through the whole process and was not nervous at all for my procedure. I really loved that Dr. Saltz called me personally the night before my surgery to ensure I wasn't nervous or had any last minute questions. The whole experience was very professional and no-nonsense.
The overall care was amazing. From the initial consultation to the post-op care. I am also extremely pleased with my results. Dr. Saltz did an amazing job.
Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth were both great from the beginning to the end. They made me feel both comfortable and confident with my decision. Nurse Ruth is always available to text/call with any questions or concerns starting with your first appointment to after surgery and recovery. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone looking or thinking about breast augmentation. I am very happy with my results and the whole process. If I ever decide to get another procedure I will definitely come back to Dr. Saltz. [Single best thing is...] The support from start to finish.
I was so impressed with the quality of work, care and professionalism from this team. I originally went into my consultation a year ago just to start shopping around for a surgeon with no intention to book that day. I was so blown away by this team I paid a deposit that day and never looked anywhere else. They were my only place I looked and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I am so thankful for Dr. Saltz and Ruth. [Single best thing is...] My results of course!
[Consultation Review] The virtual consultation with Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth went flawlessly! We were able to chat and answer questions as comfortable as we would be if we were in person pre-COVID! I was able to feel their personalities and sense of professionalism through the screen which made me even more excited for my surgery!
I didn’t know what to expect with an Explant and lift procedure, but with Dr. Saltz as my surgeon, I felt I was in good hands! I am extremely pleased with the outcome, and will definitely spread the word!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Ruth are professionals who are supportive and honest about the patient’s requests.
Dr. Saltz did not try to upsell me on implants or my procedure. She strictly went off of exactly what I needed and what I wanted. She and Ruth made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire process. I was able to text Ruth or call her with any questions and I really loved having that support.
Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth were extremely professional and informative. I felt very comfortable from the very beginning. I couldn't be happier with the results! I appreciate the honesty in the consultation. It made a world of a difference to me. I always want the truth and not to be told what I want to hear. It helped me make the perfect sizing decision!
Dr. Saltz and Ruth are so awesome. Super down to earth, honest and made me feel confident that I was making the right decision. I was concerned about having to have a lift because I did not want it and she said I probably will not need one and that we could just remove and see from there. I am super happy with my results.
Dr. Saltz was very kind and caring. She listened to what I wanted and really did an excellent job. I am very happy with my results and can't wait for my next procedure.

[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz was knowledgeable, took time to explain everything and answer my questions, was honest and realistic about what to expect.
The whole experience was so great with the Surgery Center. I am from out of state and had a few scheduling issues, but the office was able to adjust seamlessly. Dr. Saltz and Ruth were amazing, their personalities compliment each other so well. Ruth is so nice and light, she helped ensure I was confident in the size I chose. Dr. Saltz and the surgical team were so welcoming and professional on my day of surgery. After about 3 months I feel I am close to my final result and I and very happy with the outcome. They are better than I could have imagined & not too big for my shape which is something I had worried about. Thank you to all of them for making my first surgery experience a great one!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Ruth were extremely comforting in their expertise on how to pursue my needs. I feel absolutely confident that I would receive an amazing outcome with treatment. I have very asymmetrical breasts, that are large, in addition to excess breast tissue in that axillary area. It is not a simple straight forward case but I felt very comfortable discussing everything with them.
The doctor’s assistant asked me if I was insecure. When I said no and I was looking to improve my appearance and wear different clothing items, she told me “oh so you’re just self conscious, I wanted to change my body too when I was your age”. Why would you ever talk to a patient like that? I can’t relate, I like my body as is even if I decide not to get surgery, but I definitely won’t be getting it here.
[Consultation Review] I thought the virtual appointment was super easy. I didn't have to drive, park, or get ready to leave the house, so that was incredibly convenient. I felt that I connected with Dr. Saltz in the meeting and got a good feel for her professionalism. Overall I give it a five-star review!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Ruth were very open and straightforward. They answered my questions and were thorough. They made me feel comfortable with the process and next steps.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz did a good job of explaining the procedure and listened to my needs regarding the breast lift and augmentation procedure.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth are a dynamic duo. Knowledgeable, personable and make you as a patient feel important and cared about. There’s no “selling” but honest consultative recommendations from professionals. I trusted Dr. Saltz during my first procedure over 3 years ago and trust her and the team whole heartedly as we step into this journey to fix stuff after a car accident.
[Consultation Review] Feel like Dr. Saltz was very honest. I felt comfortable with her.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth we’re both very welcoming and made my virtual consultation a good experience. At no point did I ever feel rushed which I greatly appreciate as I know she is very busy right now with patients. I had a whole list of questions and they both took their time to answer all of them with honesty. I truly felt that Dr. Saltz was straight to the point and didn’t cut around any corners while discussing things with me. For these reasons, I decided to chose her as my surgeon and felt no need to even bother looking elsewhere. I’m looking forward to my breast augmentation and know she will do a phenomenal job.
[Consultation Review] I was very nervous prior to the appointment. Ruth and Dr. Saltz put me at ease with their friendly demeanor and supportive evaluation.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz carefully studied my body to identify and envision the best outcome. She answered all of my questions. She made suggestions, but did not try to “force” additional or unnecessary work.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz was very professional, took the time to ask a lot of questions to get to know me and my needs/desires, and a joy to interact with.
[Consultation Review] The doctor took a lot of time to talk to me about my options.
[Consultation Review] I was satisfied because 1) I placed the call, someone answered; 2) I inquired about my preferred surgeon's availability for services for the next year and received confirmation; 3) I requested a date for surgery and was given my preference. I am satisfied.
Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth were both wonderful throughout the entire process. My reduction literally changed my life! I am so happy with my results. Dr. Saltz was great about making sure I understood the procedure and healing process. Ruth was also available to answer all of my questions and didn’t make me feel bad about messaging her with questions others might consider silly. The best thing would be my results! I had 10lbs of breast tissue removed, my new breasts look very balanced with my body and the freedom the surgery has given me is amazing.
Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing! They made me feel like family and I was comfortable and confident with my procedure. All of my questions before surgery, the day of, and post-surgery were answered immediately. Thank you everyone!
Dr. Saltz understood my anatomy and the look I was going for better than any other doctor I consulted with. The results of my surgery are fantastic--better than I could have hoped for. The communication with her nurse Ruth and all of the insight and information Dr. Saltz provided me with left me feeling at ease about my surgery and knowing that I was in good hands. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Saltz is a true artist--a mom in her mid-30's, I have finally gotten the gorgeous, well-proportioned breasts I have always yearned for, and with no post-surgical complications!
The whole experience was better than I could have hoped for. Recovery went extremely well and I am so happy with my results. Dr. Saltz helped me pick the best size, I wouldn't change a thing.

She asked lot of great follow-up questions to really understand what I was going for, took time to answer all of my questions in detail and gave a thorough overview of the risks of the procedure and her methods to mitigate what is within her control as a surgeon. I also appreciated her candor in addressing what I could expect as a woman of color. This is something that was absolutely critical to me as I was evaluating potential surgeons to handle my augmentation. I left the consultation feeling very confident about what to expect and in her attention to detail.
Dr. Saltz's sutures are seamlessly beautiful. She is knowledgeable in what she is doing. Her staff is amazing!

[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Ruth were very professional and helpful. Dr. Saltz created a good plan for my procedure, and had a back up plan just in case. Dr. Saltz is a highly competent doctor and a perfectionist- she has exactly what I am looking for in a doctor!
I was not prepared for how amazing my results would be following my breast lift procedure. Not only are my incisions/scars minimal, but the anatomical result is natural and nearly perfect. It's not easy to let go of your breast identity and trust that your Dr. will be able to re-construct you in a way that makes the risk worth the reward. Dr. Saltz re-made my breasts into their ideal shape. I'm still mesmerized when looking in the mirror. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. This procedure was an easy recovery. I was back to work with minimal downtime. All of the necessary after-care and compression garments helped to make a non-complicated healing process.
Everyone in this surgery group was kind an made me feel comfortable. I wasn’t left with many questions because the pre-op packet was very informative. The results looks nice!
All the staff are amazing - from client care to Dr. Saltz, her nurse Ruth and the surgical team. They explained everything well, and took great care of me. I am very happy with the results.

[Single best thing is...] The results were amazing - so natural and exactly what I wanted! Dr. Saltz and her team are incredibly understanding, supportive, and welcoming! They truly listened to my concerns and addressed them in the way that I was comfortable with (e.g., specifically procedural options). They answered ALL my questions (I had MANY!) with patience and understanding. Dr. Saltz is truly an expert in breast augmentation - she ensures that her work is perfect. I truly appreciate the positive experience I had with Dr. Saltz and the team at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center!
[Consultation Review] It has been over a decade since we first met Dr. Saltz and her assistant RN, Ruth. They remembered us and even if they had not, they made us feel just as comfortable as we felt during our first visit in 2007.
The attention to detail, warm care of the staff, striving for perfection and willing to make a revision surgery to get as close to perfect as possible. Dr. Saltz and her team are awesome. I had a explant and lift and will be doing a revisions surgery next month to fix a few minor details.

The office is comfortable, beautiful, and professional. I felt extremely confident in the nurses, Anesthesiologist, and the doctor. I did not ever feel insecure or nervous. Ruth and Dr Saltz are highly recommended by me.
My implants did not settle properly and look very asymmetric. I discussed this with her 1.5 months after the surgery but she wanted to wait to do anything. It has been 3 months now and there is no change in the way the implants look which is very disappointing to me.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth were great! I felt at ease and I appreciated their honesty and professionalism. Ruth was always responsive and followed up with me post surgery. You can tell they both take pride in their work. [Single best thing is...] Feeling comfortable with Dr. Saltz and Ruth.
[Consultation Review] They really listened to me, wanted to know how I felt, and my feelings and opinion were valued.
The level of discomfort I experienced was more than I had been told it would be and every time I reached out, my concerns were minimized by staff. I am two months out and still very uncomfortable.
I can't say it enough how much the whole staff was so professional. Dr. Saltz was just amazing!!!!
[Consultation Review] People were nice. Office was very clean. Dr was knowledgeable.
I got implants 10 years ago with Dr. Saltz and one ruptured. I called the office and was connected to after-hours and it just so happened to be that Dr. Saltz was the one on call. She was extremely comforting and let me know that I would be OK and for me to call the office the next morning and she made it a point for them to squeeze me on her schedule that day. I was scheduled for surgery in less than a week. Dr. Saltz, her assistant, and the office staff were absolutely amazing just like they were 10 years ago. Best experience ever!!!!! [Single best thing is...] The amount of comforting that Dr. Saltz and her staff gave to me.

Dr. Saltz and her team made me feel special and confident since the first consultation. I wanted to replace the implants I had for almost twenty years and go up in size a little bit. She was very patient, kind and professional. She gave me her opinion and helped me to come to a decision on what was right for me. The day of the surgery, my husband and I were shown to a pre-surgery room so we could talk to doctor Saltz , the anesthesiologist and the nurse. They were very kind in answering our questions and making us feel comfortable. The surgery was a success and I love the way my new boobies look! Thank you so much Dr. Saltz and your wonderful team! Congratulations!!!
[Consultation Review] Nurse and staff was very detailed in going over everything, what to expect, etc. The entire staff was very thorough.

The entire process was such a breeze, and I'm healing wonderfully so far. I get a lot of compliments already, and it's only been two months!

[Consultation Review] Everyone was so friendly and made me feel very clam and welcoming.
[Consultation Review] I was pleased that Dr. Saltz said she doesn't recommend a lift at this time as my results should be fine without it. That's reassuring when cosmetic surgery is elective and a big money maker. Ruth and Riana have been wonderful too.
[Consultation Review] Everyone in the office was very nice. I felt very comfortable. It was easy to make appointments.
[Consultation Review] I am having breast augmentation with replacement of implants, as mine are 20 years old and I would like to have a new look too. Dr. Saltz consultation was very important to me.

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.
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!
Outcome, recovery, patient care
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.
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!
[Consultation Review] 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.
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
[Consultation Review] The experience wasn't uncomfortable. Everyone was friendly. They answered all my question and provided all the information that I needed to know.
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!
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] Liked Dr. Saltz & Ruth. Both very friendly, putting me at ease & took time to examine & explain thoroughly the procedure.
Overall wonderful experience. My boobs do not fall out of my bra or bathing suit anymore!
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] The nurse and surgeon were amazing and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.
The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable and really make you feel like family. I have had no complications at all. Such an easy recovery.
[Consultation Review] [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.
[Consultation Review] Felt comfortable, cared for and carefully considered. Like my concerns were very important!
[Consultation Review] I've had procedures done previously at LCSC and their services are above and beyond professional.
I am extremely happy with my results and the surgery couldn’t have gone any easier. I feel more comfortable showing off my body
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!
[Consultation Review] I loved the nurse and surgoen. They were very friendly and answered all my questions.
It was a smooth process overall. The surgeon gave me the natural look that I was hoping for. [Single best thing is...] The results.
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!
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
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.
[Consultation Review] I loved it and booked my surgery
[Consultation Review] The nurse was incredibly warm and welcoming. The surgeon was great too. They made me feel so comfortable.
I finally love what I see in the mirror I’m happy
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.
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!
[Consultation Review] 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! :)
Everything about the experience was awesome. I no longer have to stuff one side of my bra
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.
[Consultation Review] 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!
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 staff, facility , results and care were all amazing
Everyone was welcoming and understanding compassionate and respectful during my breast augmentation surgery
[Consultation Review] I felt very comfortable during the appointment and all my questions were answered
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.
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!
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.
[Consultation Review] I liked the surgeons and staff
The personal attention from the nurse throughout the process Having a point of contact I could use throughout the process, Ruth the nurse
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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] The whole appointment was very relaxed. I didn’t feel pressured to schedule an appointment. Everyone was knowledgeable. Just a great experience
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.
I like the care and expertise I felt comfortable and knew I was in excellent hands
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!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Ruth were amazing! They both were extremely charismatic and knowledgeable.
[Consultation Review] 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.
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
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.
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.
[Consultation Review] Excellent experience. I have since scheduled my procedure. Ruth and Dr. Saltz are an excellent team.
[Consultation Review] Very professional with great referrals
[Consultation Review] 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
[Consultation Review] I liked everyone and they gave me confidence that things would be handled properly.
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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] 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
Friendly staff who made me feel completely comfortable and happy with the results. Did not feel a thing during the surgery and no scarring.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] 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. 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.
[Consultation Review] 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!
Great staff, fast responses to questions. Fantastic results!
[Consultation Review] 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.
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.
Well informed, and ecstatic with the results Dr. Saltz and nurse Ruth were the nicest!
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
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. 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!
[Consultation Review] 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!!
[Consultation Review] 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.
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.
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.
[Consultation Review] The price was way over what I was estimated and I felt the doctor was more about her reputation than the patients happiness
[Consultation Review] 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.
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
I am highly satisfied with my breast augmentation procedure but not as much with the liposuction procedure, still satisfied though
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.
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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
loved the surgeon and her assistant very informative personal care .
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.
Great bedside manner of surgeon. Skilled surgeon. Clean and professional facility. Result was what I communicated and asked for.
[Consultation Review] 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.
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.
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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] 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.
[Consultation Review] I Loved Sr. Saltz. I felt very comfortable and that she has my best interest in mind.
[Consultation Review] 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 had a BA with Dr. Saltz two months ago. Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth did a great job helping me decide on a size. Ruth made herself available pre and post-op in case I had additional questions. The day of my surgery the staff was welcoming, they made me feel comfortable and reassured. I am loving my results!
[Consultation Review] My surgeon took their time while discussing the procedure with me and really listened to what I wanted the end result to be. They explained everything throughly and made sure I understood the entire process before moving forward. My sister and I went in together, wanting to ultimately get the procedure the same day. They made all of this possible and more. Our consultations, follow ups, and surgery were all able to be on the same day. The thought and care they put into making us feel welcome and comfortable was extremely appreciated. What really surprised me was how personable they were. Both the nurse and the doctor made sure that we felt comfortable contacting them at any time if we had questions about the procedure. The doctor and nurse made sure to call us before the procedure to check in and make sure we were ready, as well as after the procedure to see how we were doing. The staff truly went above and beyond to make us feel at home. I will be getting any and all future procedure done at the facility because of the time, care, and expertise they used throughout the entire process. Plus, even though I'm only 2 weeks post op I am loving my results!!!
[Consultation Review] Doctor Saltz is wonderful, and Ruth is an excellent nurse. I probably will not need any more procedures but I will recomend them to anybody I meet who is considering having work done.
[Consultation Review] Ruth is amazing! She took care of me and was very tentative to my needle fears! She was the only nurse that did not make a big deal about my fear or explain in detail about needles (I did not enjoy that with the pre/post op nurses). She made the experience all worth while! Her input as well as Dr. Saltz's during my consultation made me very excited to get the procedure and I am extremely happy with the results!
I still need to return to have the doctor revise the incision.
[Consultation Review] This experience was flawless from start to finish. I felt informed and cared for during the entire process. I am so thankful to Dr. Saltz and my nurse, Ruth. They have changed my life for the better.
[Consultation Review] All the staff was very welcoming and kind. Dr.saltz and Ruth my nurse were very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions in a way that was easy to understand!
[Consultation Review] I felt comfortable at consultation
[Consultation Review] Surgery done very quickly after consultation. Results very satisfactory
[Consultation Review] Ruth built an immediate connection with me and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Saltz was knowledgable and really cared about my results. She also made me feel comfortable. Rhiana made the paperwork very easy to understand and was also caring and kind.
[Consultation Review] I did not feel like anyone spent enough time to explain the differences in implant material, specific reasons why I would need certain sizes for me specifically. It was like I could have been a robot sitting there getting the same generic answers told to everyone not formy specific body type and size.
Excellent facility. Personable and knowledgeable staff. Felt like I could trust them. Still recovering from swelling but overall happy with my results.
[Consultation Review] Reassuring did not need the procedure at this time
[Consultation Review] This is my third time around and I have to say, it has always been a great experience. I have recommended my friends, one or two have come here for their surgeries. I am very impressed how the quality of this cosmetic surgery place continues to improve.
[Consultation Review] Wonderful expirence
I was highly satisfied with my experience because of Dr. Saltz attention to detail. She's a perfectionist and I trusted her. I'm more confident. I'm still very swollen. However, I'm looking forward to my final result. I'm very happy that my appendix scar is gone!
They made me feel very comfortable entering the surgery room the nurse was very comforting and the anesthesiologist made me feel very comfortable and safe thank you very much for such a safe experience. I am truly very satisfied with Dr. Saltz and nurse Ruth and the whole staff you all made me feel comfortable safe and I knew that she was going to do the best I am so happy thank you very much for making me feel like a beautiful woman again
There patience and dedication to my specific problem made me feel safe and totally taken care of. Dr. SALTZ and Nurse Ruth understood my situation..they where kind compassionate and professional.
[Consultation Review] The staff are great
I feel like my clothes fit so much better. At this time (2 months post) I can't do a lot with them because they still feel a little tight and sensitive but I'm enjoying the confidence I have back after giving birth. I don't feel like a blob anymore. Any question or issue that I had I was comforted with real answers. After post op visits I was always more confident about the outcome of my augmentation even when they weren't fully healed or dropped.
I went on Yelp for reviews and did other online research when deciding on where to go for breast augmentation. When I actually consulted with them, the staff was great; super friendly and informative. They made me feel very comfortable. I would consider going to them again and I have already referred them to my niece for her breast augmentation.
[Consultation Review] This is my second time coming in for a consult. I saw another Dr at same office.... same Dr my friend saw for breast augmentation. I looked at a lot of the doctors before and afters and the way he handled the appointment and was not satisfied at all I made another appointment with dr. Saltz and everything was much much better A lot better communication
Dr Saltz is very matter of fact and therefore I trust her very much . Scars are very minimal. Surgeon was great. Recovery was surprisingly easy.
Dr. Saltz is the best in my opinion. Her professionalism, precision and attention to detail in striving for perfection in surgical outcomes for her clients is obvious.I would recommend her to family and friends. I appreciated all the details from pre-op instruction to make sure healing will be optimal. Advice with vitamins, and holistic resources as well as conventional medical resources are discussed and implemented prior to surgery and as well as followup to ensure best healing results.
Dr. Saltz is an artist. I turned out perfect. . Ruth was awesome!!
absolutely loved Dr. Saltz and her nurses. my only complaint would be the office staff was not diligent in returning phone calls in setting follow up appointments. I was not able to successfully schedule my 3 month check up due to the staff being unprepared when I called to schedule and then not ever receiving a call back.
Dr Saltz did an amazing job and even called me later on after the procedure to see if everything was ok. Amazing!!! I love love Dr Saltz and the whole team!!! Everyone made me feel so comfortable and secure with my procedure. I was extremely impressed from start to finish. I couldn't be more happier with my results! I've already referred 4 people.
Anesthesia was perfect w propofil. Friendly, previous knowledge of the firm, and the information given
I feel more beautiful. I had a great experience and great outcome
[Consultation Review] I felt very comfortable and confident in the professionals I met with. They were very knowledgable and made me feel at ease the entire consultation. I would book my surgery today if I could but it is not the best time financially for my family. Within the next year, I will certainly be coming back to schedule my procedure:)Thank you LJCSC!!
[Consultation Review] I felt like the doctor wanted something different then I wanted
Reduction of my breast that looked better than I imagen it! . RN returned my emails w questions I had, appts were given at convince the times, attention given immediately to my raw spot in back, & a lymphatic therapist was recommended to accelerate the lymph discharge.
[Consultation Review] I was very happy with the outcome of my procedure. I enjoyed working with Dr. Saltz and Ruth
[Consultation Review] Dr. Salts and the entire staff were all so welcoming and kind during my entire experience here. The minute I walked in, the atmosphere was warm and inviting and when I started talking to Lori and Ruth they made me feel so comfortable. They were so knowledgeable and helped me decide exactly what I wanted. I left the consultation having no doubts about what I wanted to do. And my patient care coordinator helped me figure out every financial option and worked around my busy schedule.
Reduce breasts, my back pain is practically gone, I am very happy w procedure. Quick response to my questions, follow up to make sure I was ok, friendly staff
Both the doctor and nurse went out of their way to listen to my concerns, answer my questions and help me decide what was the best choice for my body.
Altho Dr. Saltz is a very good surgeon and good and what she does, she is not very communicative. Thank god for Ruth! Better communication with her. I had 2 post op visits and never saw Dr. Saltz again after the surgery.
I feel more femine and sexy. It has improved my confidence. I feel happier as a person. . Great staff. Great facility. Perfectionist of a dr
I feel simply radient - wish I had done this 10 years ago! . I have had the best experience. I was comfortable from the first minute I walked in the door. Ruth is outstanding. Dr. Saltz is exceptional. These women understood immediately how to best help me. I love my results and felt supported every single step of the way!
[Consultation Review] The professionalism of the staff was amazing and the fact that they made me feel extremely comfortable and were open to answer all my questions
Voluma makes me feel like I just lost 5 pounds. It helped my smile wrinkles be less visable. Lori was so great! I was amazed to know that she remembered little details about my skin from 8-9 months prior.
[Consultation Review] I was just so comfortable and have complete confidence in Dr Saltz and staff they couldn't have been kinder!
[Consultation Review] Dr Saltz, Nurse Ruth, the preop nurse I believe her name was Shelly (my apologies if I'm wrong on that one) along with each and every other staff member I came in contact with made me feel extremely welcome and greatly cared for.... I felt very comfortable like I just clicked" with everyone at LJSC. Every question I had was diligently answered in terms I could understand and done so with incredible kindness and patience...... I can not thank the staff nor express my satisfaction enough. "
Very knowledgable and experienced staff and surgeons.
The entire staff was very professional, easy to talk to regarding any concerns that I had, made the entire process less stressed and comfortable.
I feel more comfortable in the clothes I wear. I no longer feel ashamed at the way my body looks. I felt safe and comfortable in the environment and the doctor is phenomenal. I am so far happy with the results of my surgery although I am still healing.
[Consultation Review] Answered all my questions, made me feel at ease!
[Consultation Review] From first making my appointment all the way to my follow up appointment after my procedure I have felt absolutely comfortable and satisfied with the entire staff. Dr. Satlz was absolutely amazing, giving me her honest opinions about sizing and was able to answer all of my questions honestly. Her nurse, Nurse Ruth is awesome. She's personable, made me feel comfortable and helped ease my mind with any concerns Myself or my husband had. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
My left breast is back to normal:) Dr Saltz was extremely caring. She got me in right away. She didn't have an opening for a month out but moved her schedule around to do my surgery in two days. Her nurse Ruth was very nice and answered all my questions. Would definitely recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone I know:) I had a wonderful experience. Thank you!
The overall experience was delightful. From the fantastic nurse who was thorough explaining everything and making sure I was comfortable to the surgeon being confident in what she does and confirming you are making the best choice for your body type I have already recommended two girls one already has a consultation!! Being happy with my out come and excited about the way I feel
I can't say enough great things about Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth. I felt comfortable and well informed before and after my surgery. Whenever I called I was able to talk to Ruth with any questions I had. Dr. Saltz knew exactly what I wanted, and I am beyond happy with my results. Ruth was incredibly helpful with my pre op appointment and medications after surgery. I would recommend Dr. Saltz and her amazing staff to all of my family and friends!!!
Everything was fantastic starting with my initial interaction with my patient coordinator! From there everything went smoothly and the patient coordinator and nurse were always available no matter my concern! All the women made me feel extremely comfortable and I loved how the nurse set up a little heater for me when I needed to take my top off!!! I felt extremely welcome and comfortable. The atmosphere of La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center was wonderful. It felt totally homey and I wish I had another pair of boobs to get done!!!! Thank you!!!
I was highly satisfied with my experience because I got exactly what I wanted. I went in with different thoughts and ideas and not knowing exactly what I was looking for. My first visit, dr. Saltz and Ruth showed me, talked to me and understood what I was trying to say, even if I was confusing. I never felt so at ease going in to a surgery and knowing I'll be getting exactly what I want.
[Consultation Review] Yes! Staff is wonderful and very knowledgeable.
I love la jolla cosmetic surgery center. So much I came back for a second procedure. The staff was very professional and very helpful to me. I'd recommend them to any of my friends and family- I have already. I am very thankful that a close friend of mine recommended Dr. Saltz to me. Dr. Saltz and Ruth were wonderful. I had my first augmentation with Dr. Saltz and she did a beautiful job- I had just wish I went larger. Over two years later I decided I wanted to go larger. Dr. Saltz and Ruth were both so supportive and very helpful. I was able to get in fast. The entire team at LJCSC was amazing. I can not express this enough. I am now almost two months post op from my procedure and I am so happy with my results! I feel so confident and beautiful thanks to Dr. Saltz and the wonderful team at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center. I wish I would remember all the employees names who helped me- but everyone was great. Thank you so much!
Clean office and very friendly and helpful staff
Dr. Saltz was amazing from start to finish. She listened to what I wanted and understood that I wanted a natural look. Dr. Saltz and her team were very attentive, positive and knowledgeable. Dr. Saltz took the time to educate me and answered all questions I had.
[Consultation Review] The confirmation text was not received and my appointment was given to another patient. I felt when it was time for me to see the surgeon. She was inconvienced to have to squeeze in another patient. I also did not receive any follow up calls regarding my decision.
[Consultation Review] Very knowledgeable in the areas I was concerned with.
[Consultation Review] Dr Saltz took much care in explaining her methods and her reasoning behind those methods. She listened carefully to my concerns, wants, needs and was meticulous in the consultation when taking measurements and ensuring what I wanted.
[Consultation Review] The staff and Dr. Saltz were very knowledgeable and helpful in helping me make a decision about my procedure.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was so polite and really made me feel comfortable and listened to all my concerns and answered all of my questions very well!
Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth made me feel at ease from my consultation and still make me feel great at my follow-up appointments. Throughout my experience, I always felt informed, and Dr. Saltz was always honest with me from the beginning helping me to manage expectations - I believe this is why I am 100% happy with my results. I would definitely come to LJCSC again for any future procedures.
[Consultation Review] Everyone of the nurses was very thorough and comforting.. I ask a lot of questions and they were happy to answer. I also brought my Fiance in with me and we both felt welcomed and confident when leaving.
[Consultation Review] I had a great consultation and I felt that the surgeon truly cared. She has an artistic eye for cosmetic surgery and I felt very relaxed and confident in her. Hopefully I can schedule my procedure soon. Thank you
Dr. Saltz did a great job on my breast augmentation! She was easy to talk to and gave me what i wanted! Would recommed her to anybody! Her office nurse as well is easy talk to and very helpful and funny! Love them all!!
Dr. Saltz and Ruth were fantastic with information provided and listening to my concerns. I also greatly appreciated the bound booklet that I was given before my procedure that provided me with EVERYTHING I needed or may need or want before, during, and after my procedure.
I had been researching breast augmentation for years before I chose Dr. saltz. It's a big decision so I wanted to make sure I had the perfect Doctor. I had a friend who had her breasts done only a few months earlier, and she highly recommended Dr. saltz. I currently live in hawaii, so in order to have my surgery in La Jolla, I had to plan an entire trip to California and back. I was in contact with the staff for 2 months before my surgery date and they were incredibly helpful answering any and all questions no matter how silly. When I went in for my pre op, I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted size wise and once again, the nurses and doctor were so incredibly helpful. I had met with a few doctors in the past and none were as friendly as Dr. saltz's staff. The procedure was a breeze, and even recovery was no where near as bad as I thought it would be. Just like before surgery, the staff was incredibly helpful, and jumped to answer all of my incredibly paranoid questions. I never thought plastic surgery would be so easy, or dare I say... Fun?
[Consultation Review] Yes
I am overall highly satisfied with my experience with Dr. Saltz and her staff. She and Ruth were absolutely amazing. I never once felt uncomfortable or at all doubtful at any point in my process. They were perfect enough to schedule my surgery around my schedule. I wanted the surgery before I left California and to my luck I was scheduled 10 days later. 10! My surgery was over and done with before I could even realize I had new breasts. I adore my outcome and am highly satisfied and will recommend Dr. Saltz and Ruth to all my California friends. Actually... I would even recommend her to my non-California friends, the travel is worth the outcome! Thanks Dr. Saltz and Ruth, I LOVE MY RESULTS!
Overall experience was great. Staff was warm caring and supportive. Staff was always available to answer any questions of concern. Professional staff that I'd come back to over and over.
Dr. Saltz not only did good work but listened carefully to make sure I was pleased with the outcome.
After researching several Plastic Surgeons, I decided that Dr. Saltz was the best candidate to perform my breast reduction surgery. On my initial visit, I met with Nurse Ruth first, who I connected with immediately. Her sense of humor and receiving attitude drew me in instantly. After having a blast talking about breast reduction with Nurse Ruth, I met with Dr. Saltz, who was attentive and very conscientious. It was clear from the start that she was meticulous and a perfectionist as she examined and measured my breasts. She asked me about the size breasts I wanted. When I told her I wanted a B cup, she kindly recommended not doing something quite so drastic. She told me it was understandable to want extreme breast reduction when dealing with large breasts, but to consider a different size for my body type. Instead, she recommended going from a DD to a C and told me to think about it. I took her advice, and I could not be happier with the outcome of my breast size. Size C was the perfect choice! Nurse Ruth and Dr. Salt spent a lot of time educating me on my procedure. We talked about the different methods/techniques available and their results, what to expect the day of surgery, the days to follow as well as the next 18 months to follow. I was given a booklet with all the information as well as detailed explanations regarding the prescriptions I would need before and after my procedure. I believe I went into the venture with my eyes wide open and with reasonable expectations. Two-weeks after surgery I was already enjoying the results of my surgery and had a mini fashion show in my bedroom closet. I couldn't believe how enjoyable wearing a basic cotton tank could be. I wasn't spilling out of my clothing anymore. I even had a wedding to attend and Nurse Ruth went above and beyond to call in a prescription for me even though she was not scheduled to work at the office on the day I called. It meant so much to me to be able to attend my best friend's wedding and not worry about pain. Thank you so much Nurse Ruth. You went the distance for me, and I am lucky to have had you through my surgery process. You are tops!!!Overall, I would recommend La Jolla Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre. Dr. Saltz's education, knowledge, and skillful hands exceeded my expectations. I don't think there is a surgeon in Southern California who is comparable to her. She is so precise and thorough and knows how to shape a breast. The results of her breast reduction procedures on patients far exceed the many before/after pictures I have seen at other surgery centers. Quite frankly, there are no adequate words to describe just how happy I am with the results of my breast reduction. Thank you Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth. You are a dynamic duo.
Dr. Salt and her entire staff were very attentive, reassuring and calming. Her nurse, Ruth was available via text around the clock after my procedure and made me feel comfortable and at ease with all of my questions so and concerns. The entire process has been fantastic.
I am very pleased with the outcome of my breast lift. Dr. Saltz really worked magic and couldn't be more happy.
Extremely professional and everybody in the office is so easy going that even for a regular check up I feel at ease and like everything is fine
Consult and pre ops appointment startted way late
Dr. Lori Saltz and Nurse Ruth came highly recommended to me, and I now see why. They are very professional and knowledgeable while making sure you feel at ease, as a breast augmentation is a life-changing event. Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth were especially helpful to me when I had numerous questions about sizing and post-op care. Ruth even spent extra time with me at my pre-op to go over sizing again and again! Karla, my patient coordinator, was very responsive via email and phone. Overall, I just felt well taken care of. I feel that my breasts are exactly what I wanted, and I attribute that to the great, open line of communication I had with my doctor and her staff. I appreciate that Dr. Saltz was very up front with me in regards to expectations and results. I will definitely be returning for any future procedures.
I was in great hands with Dr. Saltz, she understood what I wanted and helped me to achieve the great results with good expectations. The surgery went smoothly and the staff took great care of me.
I am very happy with my experience. I am 7 weeks in recovery. I contact Jessica or Ruth with any questions and concerns and they respond right away or by the end of the day. Dr Saltz was very thourough and knowledgable. Ruth and dr Saltz make a great team. I felt they were very honest about the procedures that would best suit me for the outcome I was looking for and gave me realistic time fram for recovery. Jessica, my coordinator was very helpful and answered all my questions when I was considering the procedures. The anestetiooligist, Dr. Saltz, put me at ease right away and made my first and hopefully only surgery a positive experience. Everyone from the front desk to the nurses in surgery along with dr Saltz and Ruth made me feel very well taken care of.
[Consultation Review] Prior to my consultation with Dr. Saltz I had heard so many wonderful things about her work and decided to take a look for myself. There are hardly any other before and afters on the worldwide web that I think compare to the beautiful work displayed in her gallery on the LJCSC website. Perfect result after perfect result kept coming up as I clicked 'next' in the photo gallery so I decided to schedule a consultation. The ladies on the phone were quick and helpful and friendly in getting me set up with my consultation appt, it almost seemed too easy! The day of my consult I was greeted by a very sweet receptionist and invited to wait In their waiting area which looks like a nice cozy family room and enjoy some refreshments. The environment instantaneously made me feel safe and comfortable. The consult itself made me feel the same. Dr. Saltz nurse, Ruth was so awesome to talk to. She truly made me feel comfortable and on such a personable level. She talks to you like she's known you for a lifetime. The conversation flowed and felt so natural it was like I was out to lunch with a friend. Both Dr. Saltz and Ruth were so professional and thorough in describing the procedure in detail and most of all I appreciated that they take a natural approach when doing the implant sizing. I loved that it was important to them that I look proportionate and not like someone who was trying too hard to look like they had fake boobs sitting on top of their chest. The consult went great and I was convinced more than ever that there would be no other surgeon on this earth that I would allow to put their hands on me. Dr. Saltz IS the best out there. I look forward to booking my surgery and feel blessed to have found such an awesome team and outstanding practice to take care of me and give me something I have always wanted...to look and feel like the woman I am. 5 stars from me!
Very thorough and very professional
[Consultation Review] Is not that I not satisfied. I really want to do the surgery but it is more than what I expected.
[Consultation Review] The nurse, Ruth, was extremely helpful and personable. Dr. Saltz came across as very professional. I feel very comfortable having my procedure (tomorrow!!!!)
Surgery went very well, was treated very well and explained everything in detail. This being my fourth augmentation I am finally satisfied with the end result.
Dr. Saltz was very professional and my results and experience were fantastic
[Consultation Review] Breasts are uneven after the surgery : very disappointed
I like that my doctor preferred making breast look natural" and that small is ok too. I was confident that she wouldn't make me look "enormous and fake". The results are so wonderful that NO ONE has even noticed or said any comments. Which was exactly what I was hoping for. I was able to keep this surgery a secret. The healing went well. I like that she was willing to custom order the size implants I wanted in order to meet my needs."
[Consultation Review] The staff was great. I would definitely return for other procedures.
[Consultation Review] The Surgeon and Nurse both spent a very long time with me and seemed genuinely invested in the best outcome possible- they made me feel comfortable and heard. Really fantastic experience, as soon as I can afford it I will be getting this procedure.
Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth spent a lot of time with me answering questions and offering pertinent information regarding options for my revision. Their patient care is very apparent, which made me feel very comfortable with my decision for surgery and confident about the outcome. They truly listened to what my needs were. Jan Luck is a wonderful coordinator who was very patient and attentive.The OR team was amazing, everyone made me feel very well cared for. I had complete trust in them.I am so very pleased with the results that I feel a part of my life was given back to me! Thank you LJCSC!
The staff was extremely informative and helpful. Dr. Saltz really took the time to get to know what was important to me for both look and feel of my best augmentation. I felt like I was talking directly to my friend. I was so nervous but she reassured me, I would highly recommend her.
[Consultation Review] I was injured at work requiring several breast surgeries. Each surgery was not successful and there was scarring, pain, deformity, etc...Each surgeon that I consulted with said that there was no way to repair the problems. When I asked about fat injections I was told that I was not a candidate and that they were not successful.Dr. Saltz provided me with an in-depth consultation and surgical options and I am thrilled that this nightmare, going on since 2007, might be coming to an end.Nancy Biasotti
Everything came out exactly how I wanted it. I loved that you guys made it easy for me to afford and found the perfect time to have my operation. The staff, my nurse and doctor were all phenomenal.
[Consultation Review] I came into the appointment extremely nervous about this big step and worried if I could handle it and the minute I met Ruth RN and Dr. Saltz all my anxieties were wiped away. They were SO nice and friendly that I felt like I had known them forever and they made me feel extremely comfortable. Bedside manner was excellent! The sizing with the pictures was awesome to see what I'm getting and gave me something to look forward to. Dr. Saltz and Ruth are the BEST!!!!!
From the beginning to the end Dr. Salts and her team made me feel comfortable and confident about my procedure. They were available for questions when j reached out, the anesthesiologist was very patient with my questions and overall everyone I came in contact with was very helpful. I felt the nursing staff to be really personable and helped me make decisions that were the best fit for me.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth are amazing people. As soon as I met them both I knew I had found the perfect place for my surgery. They made me feel comfortable and confident. I never doubted them for a second! Fantastic people!
Dr. Saltz is amazing and her staff is so friendly and answered all my questions.
I absolutely LOVED Dr. saltz and her assistant Ruth. They were so awesome and made me feel totally comfortable whenever I talked to them. Thy were very honest And down to earth. They seemed to genuinely care about me and my thoughts and wishes instead of just making money. I highly reccomend all my friends to go to her. A couple of them have but the main reason for them not going is because they go somewhere cheaper". But I tell them they're gonna get what they pay for. "
Everyone was so professional and accomodating
[Consultation Review] I'm not sure if a lift and augmentation is the way I want to go and was told that the surgeon would only do the procedure if I got a lift. I'm doing more research and going to more consultations before coming up with my final decision.
[Consultation Review] Ruth was fantastic!
Outcome was exactly what I was told to expect and I am very happy with it. Recovery time overall was shorter than expected.Staff was very helpful and friendly.I have already referred friends and patients to Dr Saltz since I had my procedure.
From meeting Mary at the consultation to the nurse and the Dr, the whole team were so helpful and just an awesome experience. For the first photos they make you feel comfortable. Having a procedure done that your putting complete trust in a Dr that they will help you feel better about yourself they far passed that expectation. Thank you Team Saltz/Dr Saltz you are all amazing
[Consultation Review] Everyone was extremely friendly. Ruth was amazing and made me feel right at home. Being younger I was afraid of being judged but everyone I dealt with was extremely respectful and welcoming. I can't say how comfortable Ruth made me feel!!!
The nurse Ruth was very helpful from consultation to post op visit. The entire process was smooth and I felt very comfortable with the entire staff. All my questions were answered and I felt Ruth was very patient with me.
Every person I came in contact with was lovely. Every person was happy and glad to be there.
[Consultation Review] Very caring, very through . Like the fact that Dr Saltze is female and I felt she could relate better because if that.
Dr. Salz was amazing! I had a great experience, felt comfortable, little to no reovery time and was extremely happy with results.
Dr. Saltz is an excellent doctor-she made me feel comfortable with my decisions and was very thorough and helpful. The staff is also excellent and makes sure you feel comfortable and get the info you need. Overall it was a very positive and professional experience-I would definitely return if I did more cosmetic work and I would highly recommend them to any friends and family considering cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing and definitely helpful. I truly,would recommend her to friends and family.
I felt confident of Dr Saltz ability, her nurse was very friendly and I felt like family. Great experience and results.
Ruth was just amazing! Courteous, empathetic, and very helpful. She was the highlight of my experience and one of the main reasons why I would recommend my friends and family. She really went above and beyond to make sure I was healing well and felt like I was being taken care of.
[Consultation Review] This appointment was for my daughter and both the nurse and Dr. Saltz were very informative and made her feel at ease and comfortable. I was very impressed with their bedside manner and with the way they explained how the breast reduction procedure would be done. We really were impressed with the staff and felt that the explanations as far as the procedure, healing time, timing and finances were explained very thoroughly.
Dr. Saltz was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I very much respected her honesty and professionalism. She definitely understood what I was looking for and took into account my petite build.
[Consultation Review] The staff made me feel very comftorable about the procedure. I appreciated how conservative the Doctor was about size, and about creating a natural look. I hope I can have the surgery very soon!
Dr Saltz was great, she has a very good eye and is a fantastic surgeon. I healed well and much faster than I thought. The results were great and I am very satisfied with how my breast aug looks, very very natural. I went with saline implants.The only thing I would have liked more feedback on was sizing. It was very hard to pick a size, and the size I picked came out smaller than I thought. It would have helped to maybe look at photos together with the surgeon and talk about the size I selected and get her feedback if it would fit my goals. The entire staff was very friendly and nurse Dr Ruth answered all my emails and questions as well.
The Doctor and her nurses were very knowledgeable, as well as very experienced. I appreciated their honesty and love the results.
[Consultation Review] Everything was really easy and quick. All my questions were answer and I think the RN was awesome!
[Consultation Review] Staff very courteous, helpful
Everyone was amazing and lots of communication before and after procedure!!
Everyone was so nice and supportive. I am very happy with my results so far. It was not as painful as I thought it was going to be.
being in the medical profession I have incredibly high standards. Dr Saltz and her staff were not only exceeded my expectations, but were professional, detail oriented and the experience was flawless. My procedure went much better than expected, Dr Saltz took extra time and care with me post operation and has served as a resource to me since. I would tell ANY female looking for surgery to go to Dr Saltz... there is truly no one better in southern california
The facility is nice, clean and ascetically appealing. The staff is welcoming, kind, supportive, and knowledgable about their field of expertise. I always felt that I was in good hands. Even after my procedure, I received a follow up call from my doctor and her nurse. All of the staff is extremely easy to talk to and made me feel at ease with my procedure.
The consultation was different in the office than described on their website. There seemed to be no clear way to figure out my breast size expectations. It felt I was never sure if the surgeon & I were obviously the same page. My breast size turned out smaller than expected. I felt like she was afraId to go a little bigger than she did. Overall, she did a good job, just wished she went a little bigger(like I repeatedly told her pre surgery).
Between the honesty of Ruth the nurse and Dr.Saltz you feel well taken care of. They take their time with you. There's no pressure. They truly care about. They call to check up on you. It's a great place. I couldn't ask for better care.
I felt Dr. Saltz was not as present in our consultations as her nurse. I had a concrete goal/look I was hoping for her to help me achieve but was never able to discuss/show pictures. I was told on the day of surgery, while getting prepped, that I can't do anything about the shape of your breasts". I still wonder why this was said and how I could've gotten that far into the process if that was the case. Disappointed in the lack of support and guidance for my anticipated goal/look. As a returning patient this is very discouraging."
Dr. Saltz is of course hands down the best surgeon. There is no question. Ruth made the whole experience perfect. Together they are a best team.
Dr. Lori Saltz is a true artist, and I am EXTREMELY pleased with her work and the results of my surgery! I would absolutely return to her for any plastic surgery needs. Also, I thought the surgery suite was perfect, and such a more pleasant experience than a hospital. It was one of the factors in my decision to have the surgery in San Diego. I live in Northern California so I spent anextra $3000 staying in a hotel for a couple of weeks while recovering, but it was absolutely worth it! I must also mention that the anesthesiologist was EXCELLENT! I woke up with absolutely no nausea, and felt alert, with absolutely no pain, just a bit of pressure from the wrapping/bandaging of my breasts. I had had two breast augmentations before Dr. Saltz corrected my breasts, and this was BY FAR such a more pleasant experience!
I didn't have any issues before or after my procedure. Dr. Saltz listened to what I was looking for and she exceeded my expectations. Everyone was helpful and nice before and after my procedure, all my questions and concerns were addressed with feeling like I was bothering them.
Every question was answered to completion and beyond. They made me feel so comfortable and so normal" for having these questions and concerns, especially when I was having doubts at the preop visit. Also the anesthesiologist was beyond awesome in every way. Additionally, my husband felt very comforted by the team's approach even though the day of my surgery was the first time he had been to the office and met anyone. "
Dr.Saltz and Ruth were amazing to work with! They were both professional and fun. They gave me great input on everything about my breast augmentation procedure and answered all of my questions.
I loved how Dr Saltz came right in and told me what she didn't like about the areas of concern i had. I loved what she had to say, and she was as critical and listening as I would have liked, without making me feel like I was deformed. She made me feel comfortable that she wanted my midsection to look as great as I did.
[Consultation Review] Super nice people... But felt like I was in good hands
The patient care coordinator took extensive time answering my questions prior to my initial consultation and made me very comfortable to ask anything I needed.I was impressed with the detail of Dr Saltz' analysis and measurements to get my sizing right for my body. I was treated with respect and appreciation by every staff member and the nurse follow up calls were very much appreciated. I would not have called in for one or two small questions but I was pleased to speak to the nurse when she called me.
[Consultation Review] The atmosphere of the office was friendly yet professional. I felt like my needs and wants were considered and respected. I left feeling informed and confident in my decision to have breast augmentation.
Everyone at LJCSC went above and beyond my expectations. Dr. Saltz, Nurse Ruth, and Karla the patient care coordinator were available to walk me through every step of the process and answer any questions I had. They are very professional, organized and meticulous. I felt well prepared for my surgery, very comfortable on surgery day, and had realistic expectations of the recovery process. This is a top notch group! I highly recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone looking for a great cosmetic surgeon.
Besides the anxiety issue and the fact that I didn't receive a call prior to surgery, which i had to call and get all the reminders from the nurse, I was very happy with all the staff and the procedures and the results!
I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and friendliness I received from the very beginning to the end. I felt comfortable and satisfied with my decision and outcome of my procedure, also my nurse Ruth was just amazing and went above and beyond what I expected! I love this office and I talk very highly about Dr.Saltz and her team.
I just love my whole experience with my doctor and all who helped.
Dr. Saltz is amazing. She knew exactly what size implant to give me, I hardly have any scaring, and Nurse Ruth was always wonderful to talk to, great at answering my questions, and alleviated all my fears. I've already suggested Dr. Saltz to a friend of mine. Wonderful work!! Thank you so much! I feel like a woman again.
What appeared like miscommunication between staff the day of surgery and also a few inappropriate comments made by Dr. Saltz. She is a wonderful surgeon, just not sure why certain things had to be said.
Dr Saltz is very talented and Ruth was always available when I needed her.
Dr.Salts is Amazing! She's extremely skilled at what she does and enjoys it and you can tell how she wants it to be right for you she listens to everything you say to make it perfect.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth provided excellent service with compassion in my decision. They were forth coming with as much information as I needed and always available by phone prior to and post op.
Dr. Saltz and her support staff are awesome. I really appreciated the time they took to help me feel comfortable with my decision to have surgery. Everything went very smoothly on the day of surgery and I believe that is in part because I felt very confident in Dr. Saltz. She did a great job.
One post op visit I had to see another dr when mine was on vacation we had a plan on how to take care of my hole where things died off it was already on the mend and was healing nice and flat. Then he told me to stick gauze INSIDE the sore which after 2 days made it A deep hole again and it never came back down like it was healing up before now it's very obvious I have a big dent in the bottom of my left breast because of him
I felt completely comfortable. Everyone was so sweet, personably and happy. The office is very thorough and reliable when it comes to making appointments and answering all my questions. Completely satisfied and will definitely recommend this practice to anyone!!
[Consultation Review] Mary was fantastic, sweet and empathetic with my financial worries. Dr Saltz did my surgery on a day she usually does NOT do surgery. Ruthie, RN was/is awesome. She sure knows her stuff. As an RN myself, I love her way with patients. Dr Saltz never NEVER rush out of any consultation or post op appt. Yvette (front office) is so SO welcoming with that gorgeous true smile. The only thing I was slightly upset about was I was told Dr [Steven] Saltz would be my anesthesiologist and he wound up not being so.
Great staff, nurse & surgeon. Confident that they knew what I wanted & my wants were met!!
Dr. Saltz is an amazing doctor. She replaced my implant nine years ago and did an amazing job, so I returned again. Ruth is another reason I returned to Dr. Saltz. The care I received nine years ago after I developed a hematoma was out standing. I will return again when needed.
[Consultation Review] I loved everything except the price for the procedure
I felt extremely comfortable with Ruth and Dr. Saltz. Dr. Saltz work speaks for itself. The process was easy and fun. Anytime I had a question or concern the response time and manner was great. I love how I look and know it will only get better.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and Ruth were great to work with. They listened to my needs and answered all of my questions. I was very happy with my entire experience from start to finish! The results were even better.
The staff were all friendly and professional. Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth were an awesome team! Having trust in your surgeon, feeling comfortable, and informed about what to expect are some of the most important components to me. They made me feel very comfortable through out the process and were there to help support me with any questions or concerns that arose after surgery. They set the proper expectations from the beginning and were helpful in providing instructions on how to properly take care of myself before and after surgery. Most importantly, I was very satisfied with the results and would highly recommend others to come here.
Dr Saltz and Ruth were amazing! From start to finish! So happy with my choice to come to this facility!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz was so kind and understanding as well as professional and highly skilled. I could not be happier with her care and the results of the surgery. She looked at me like a person not a specimen. Other surgeons and their office staff left me feeling violated. It can be embarassing undressing, having pictures taken, etc. The staff at your office helped me to feel at ease. Ruth has a wonderful way about her. She helped me feel comfortable and truly helped me to understand certain options to help prevent scarring that I am very grateful for. I had a feeling that Ruth and Dr. Saltz worked well together. Follow up questions that I asked Ruth were answered in a timely, complete manner and helped me to feel sure that my decision to schedule surgery with Dr. Saltz was correct. Mary explained the billing options in clear friendly manner. Having the preop blood work and EKG done in the office made it so much easier for me. Every step of the way I felt safe and taken care of. After the surgery I feel so much better about how I look. The OR staff was fantastic. The anesthesiologist and nurse and Dr. Saltz's assistant all did their jobs in such a way that I was safe. Thank you very much!!!
Dr. Saltz & Ruth were amazing!I only went to one consultation, and when I left I knew I had found my surgeon. Lori and Ruth both made me feel comfortable and safe with the whole process, I've never been more happy with a decision. It took me 3 months to call and set up my surgery date only because I wanted to pay cash. The night I got home from after my surgery Dr. Saltz called to see how I was doing, it was so comforting to know she cared.The first few days were hard to get through, I felt helpless but now I am back to my everyday life and im so in love with my new boobies!
I heard many good things about Dr. Saltz from friends of friends, and after meeting her and Ruth I knew I would be in good hands. The facility is very well kept and I felt comfortable and excited to begin the process. Trying on the different cc's during my consultation really helped me narrow down want I wanted and I valued Dr. Saltz's professional opinion about what would look best for my body type. I have never had any type of surgery before so I was anxious up until the day of. After speaking with the nurse, my anesthesiologist, and Dr. Saltz on the morning before surgery my nerves went away. Everyone was so professional, understanding and friendly. I am so happy I made the decision to get breast augmentation and would do it again with LJCSC in a heartbeat.
[Consultation Review] The entire staff at LJCSC was wonderful. I immediately felt comfortable and like I was in great hands. Dr. Saltz and her nurse really took the time to explain how different size implants would look on my specific body type, really focusing on my body as a whole, rather then just size of implants I wanted. None of the other doctors I saw focused on how the size of implants look different on different body types. That was very important to me. All of my questions were answered and I knew right away I wanted to use Dr. Saltz.
Everything was great and very professional while still making my experience personal.
Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing. On the day of surgery they were very comforting and put all my fears at ease. I should also mention that I'm in love with my results!
Everyone is friendly and very professional.
[Consultation Review] Overall had a great experience. Everyone was nice and personable.. The office was comfortable and the information that was provided will definitely help me in my final decision for surgery.
[Consultation Review] My meeting with the doctor and her nurse was everything and more than expected. They were both knowledgable, helpful, and they took their time with me on every detail. They were also funny and had me laughing durring an otherwise very scary and surreal expirience! The ability to view my photos online at home were an added bonus.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were great. Dr. Saltz , a highly qualified and experienced surgeon put me at ease and was great at answering all my questions . She was kind and reassuring and very respectful about my wishes and my desired outcome. Her staff was fantastic and they were kind enough to spend a lot of time answering all my questions. They were amazing after surgery, checking in on me and making sure I was doing well. I am extremely happy and satisfied with my procedure and would highly recommend Dr. Saltz and her staff .
Overall, top notch service in all capacities. I love the results! The staff and doctor are funny and kind while also being very informative.
Everything went well, pleased with everything. My scar even looks better then I thought it would.
This experience was fantastic from the very beginning to the very end. Everyone involved with my surgery was absolutely wonderful in helping me with every aspect. I would definately recommend La Jolla Cosmetic Center especially Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth. Thank you for everything
I was told I did not need a lift and only needed an augmentation. However now one if my breast has extra loose tissue and the surgeon says now I may need a lift. I trusted the surgeons opinion prior to surgery and if I was going to need a lift I would've preferred it done right the first time. Also it seems with all the surgeries my surgeon performs why wouldn't she have recommended bigger implants to fill out my breast tissue if she didn't originally think I needed a lift. Having cosmetic surgery for the first time I rely heavily on the surgeons recommendation and expertise. I feel dissatisfied with the results. Also I never and still do not have clear guidelines for what I can and cannot do during the healing phase. Written instructions would've been helpful as a reference. A timeline would've been helpful like when I can start working out and to what degree. Things to expect with each month or weeks following surgery would've been helpful.
I was overall satisfied with the both of the procedures that I received. I never thought my breast could look so amazing. I was very happy with the results and feel more confident about myself. I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz. Her staff and herself are such caring individuals
[Consultation Review] Everyone from the patient coordinator too the surgeon made me feel super comfortable, I have been to almost 15 surgeons and I have never felt more at home. I already had most of the information that surrounds the surgery, I have just been searching for a doctor who has fantastic results and outstanding reviews. The nurse and surgeon were amazing, and they worked so well together. Ruth even personally emailed me to check in on me, I loved that. I am hoping to schedule my procedure in the next coming months, I just have to save a little bit more. Although, this office has the highest procedures I think in the long run it will be worth it.
Ruth and Dr. Saltz made me feel like I was the only patient they had. The office visits were so much fun, it makes you want to come back!
I like so much the doctor and staff they are so nice , they realy care about the surgery. I'm so glad to choose doctor Saltz.
Dr. Saltz and nurse ruth are great. They are caring and great at what they do.
[Consultation Review] Not able to offer smaller implant discussion or try on. Did not explain surgery unless prompted.
All my questions and concerns have been answered. It is too soon to tell the outcome of the surgery because it has only been a week and my eyes are still swollen.
Overall it was a great experience and Dr. Saltz and staff were great!!
I was extremely comfortable with all the staff, all my questions where answered
My nipple reduction surgery exceeded my expectations. From my consultation to the my final result, I couldn't be happier. The support staff did a tremendous job in keeping me informed during the entire process. My doctor and nurses are so helpful and patient. Thanks so much for Dr. Salt.
Outcome already looks great 2 weeks out even though I was told I would have swelling for up to 9 mos.
The staff was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I was in the best hands for surgery. They helped explain all my questions and helped me make the best decision without being judgmental.
[Consultation Review] Time was taken to explain the procedures.
I did not want large implants and so finding the exact size was very important to me prior to surgery. Some plastic surgeons ask you to leave it to them to make the final decision and I would never do that. Dr. Saltz doesn't do that either. She wants to ensure you know exactly what you're going to get. To meet that need, she provided 'sizing implants' made to mimic what they'd look like once implanted. No other surgeon I visited provided that. They did provide implants to stuff into a bra, but that is not how they would ultimately look so it wasn't as reassuring as Dr. Saltz's method. I am very happy with the size 195cc's I ultimately selected.
Both my doctor and my nurse were so incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. They gave me an honest opinion on what size would go best with my body (which was my main concern). My nurse was so comforting during the whole process, even as I was being put to sleep which helped me feel so much better about everything. Dr saltz is very honest and is an absolute perfectionist when it comes to her work. They make a great team and I couldn't be happier with my experience.
I am satisfied with my results. However, I feel that my recovery time was much longer that expected. On the other hand, I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz because she is very professional, caring and does a wonderful job with minimal scaring.
The entire experience was very comfortable and professional. I have been wanting this surgery for about 20 years and was always too shy to follow through with it. Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing and made me feel safe and comfortable. I am so grateful.
Dr. Lori salts and her staff were awesome!!! Very kind and always willing to take the time to answer any questions that I had..... Ruth (the nurse) always return my husbands call or tx and always reassured him what was normal and not normal......
I was very unsure about having the procedure, but after finding Dr. Saltz the moment I meet her I knew I would be in good hands. The nurses helped me with my emotional up and downs before surgery and recovery went by so smooth with very little pain meds. My experience was above anything I ever imagined. The office and procedure area is very well maintained and extremely welcoming!!
This was my 3rd procedure/visit to specifically, Dr. Saltz. I had scar removal, then came back for saline breast implants and recently removal & replacement with silicone breast implants. Dr. Saltz and her staff has always been kind, informative and most importantly helped me to feel at ease and comfortable with my procedure. I am ecstatic with my results.
The whole staff was very professional and knowledgable. They even called me to check on how I was doing post-op. I felt very well taken care of!
Dr Saltz and all of the staff were extremely sincere, nice and helpful throughout the whole process. I felt very well taken care of.
[Consultation Review] I was very comfortable. They were so easy to talk to about everything.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth listened intently and did their very best to help me. Jalayne was pleasant and helpful as well as all of the employees whom I encountered. If it hadn't been for Ruth suggesting I ask for my money back from the other surgeon, I would never have been able to afford to have this surgery at all so I am deeply grateful to both Ruth and Dr. Saltz. They truly care about what they do and their patients and they both have integrity.Thank you.
Wonderful facility and staff. Very knowledgeable, particular surgeon and fantastic nurse!
Dr. Saltz and her nurse as well as the front desk staff and the payment coordinator were all so helpful and very low pressure and very friendly. They met my needs and wants to a tee. It made my decision so easy. They were recommended to me via other friends and also had such high ratings on line. I did extensive research prior to my surgery about Dr. Saltz including a background check and malpractice check just to make sure I was in good hands. She is a perfectionist and very reputable. I love my new body and would go back in a heart beat.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing. Friendly, Caring, Knowledgeable and very Professional. I appreciated Dr. Saltz going over all aspects of my procedure and realistic outcomes. She did an amazing job and had no problems post op. Highly recomend her to everyone I know.
I am very satisfied with the outcome of my surgery. The staff at LJCSC are caring and friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Saltz.
Everything from first contact to follow-up after surgery went perfect. My only problem is that my reduction didn't turn out perfectly symmetrical (I have OCD) but I am getting used to it as I am so thankful to be a size B versus a DDD!!!
I thought Dr. Saltz did a terrific job. This is the second time I had liposuction in the same area (mid portion) and the results from this surgery were much better than the last!
[Consultation Review] Ruth and Dr Saltz were both not only knowledgeable but also made me feel very comfortable. They spent a good deal of time with me and explained as well as they could a highly complicated procedure. I never felt rushed or like they needed to be elsewhere. I am what they described as a tricky case" and I really felt like they both took the time to help me understand all my options. Thanks to both of you!!"
The professionalism and quality of care and outcome of my surgery. I felt safe and secure that if there was a problem my doctor and staff would give me high quality care to assure the best outcome possible. I always felt cared for and my care was individualized. As a nurse, I know what to look for and all the right things were present, including the emotional support for a physical altering change.
i love how friendly and knowledgeable everyone is. overall a very good experience!
[Consultation Review] dr. saltz and her nurse made me feel very comfortable, seemed very interested in making the right decision for my needs and were extremely educated. they also did not seem to care how long they were spending with me, which was very nice.
[Consultation Review] I am a returning client and feel very confident with Dr. Salz. Also, I was spoken to candidly regarding what was possible and what was not based on my age and skin type. Finally, I feel there is a genuine commitment to making me look the best I can regarding the procedure I inquired about.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing. I've already recommended them. It was the best experience, everything I hoped for.
[Consultation Review] i like because i saw the doctor a highly professional,she realy care about her pacient,she explain everything,she did my doughter lipo shes a good doctor im realy satisfaied
Prior to me having the breast reduction surgery at this site, I had liposuction on my legs. I also sent my daughter here and my best friend to have reductions surgeries. I was apprehensive to have another surgery after having so many during my lifetime, but I decided that for my quality of life; it was time to have my breasts reduced!! I am so thrilled that I finally did it and now I am living my life pain free!!!
I was so happy with Dr.Saltz and her staff. Everyone made me feel compfortable and welcomed. I was nervous but everyone at the office calmed my nerves and anxiety because of their friendliness and welcoming spirit. Out of all the surgeons in San Diego, I know I chose the right surgeon and practice to go to. The only slight doubt I have is I wish I would have gone a little bit bigger. I know this is a common statement, I just thought the sizing would be bigger based on the sizers I tried on during consultation/pre-op. If I had known this is the true size of the implant, I would have gone about 50-75ccs larger in order to achieve the look I wanted. However, at this point I can't focus on that. I'm just incredibly grateful and thankful for a speedy recovery and a team to go to when I had questions and concerns.
[Consultation Review] The doctor and nurses were very friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs. I felt very comfortable during the consultation.
I am satisfied with the overall outcome. Nurses and staff members were friendly and polite. However, I wish the nurse and surgeon would have explained more in detail the recovery period, since mine was painful and long to the point that i was thinking to explant after only 2 weeks. Nevertheless, I ended up feeling happy and satisfied with the result and most likely be back for more procedures.
I visited two Surgeons before making my decision to become a patient of Dr. Saltz. Dr. Saltz and her Staff are exceptional people. I was completely amazed that a group of people could be so incredible. My expectations were exceeded in every way by everyone I came in contact with at her office. The Recovery Nurse had the most sincere concern for me after my Surgery. She deserves the highest recognition.
[Consultation Review] The staff is amazing, friendly, and gonoutnofbtheirbway to make you comfortable and answer any questions you may have. I had my one year old with me and he started flipping out the nurse was so helpful and they assured me that it was ok.
[Consultation Review] Everyone made me feel extra sure of what decision I was making for my body and everyone in the office was sweet .
[Consultation Review] I was completely satisfied with my experience. Dr saltz was very thorough with my past medical complications and made sure that It was safe for me to have surgery.
Dr Saltz took the time to figure out what surgery would be best for my situation.
I Loved Ruth She is sooo amazing!! Dr Saltz is amazing also, I'm sooo happy with my results.
Enjoyed the quick and thorough communication with the surgeon via email. Good quick phone response from nurse. All questions answered honestly. High quality results.
I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Saltz and the rest of the staff at LJCSC! The staff all made me feel comfortable, informed, and they were all so patient with my questions and concerns. I will absolutely refer my friends and family who want a cosmetic procedure done to Dr.Saltz! Thank you!
Ruth is phenomenal!!
[Consultation Review] Felt secured and comfortable with the surgeon and staffs.
My nurse(s) and surgeon were so nice and very informative about my visit and through out my surgery. THey made me feel so comfortable at all times. I am very satisfied at this practice and I would definitely would recommend them to any of my friends and family.
[Consultation Review] Both the doctor and nurse were very professional and took their time to answer my questions. Information provided was very clear and concise making it easy to make a determination as to who would perform my surgery.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz was fantastic. She listened well and her staff was very enjoyable! I love that office!
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz is everything I could have ever dreamed of! I have been researching surgeons for over 2 years and she has always been the one I have kept coming back to. I have not gone and seen other surgeons because I knew she was the one before I came into the office. Before my consultation I told my boyfriend that if I got even the slightest hint that this was not right I was going to walk out and not get the surgery but right from the start the nurse made me feel so comfortable. When it came time to meeting Dr. Saltz she blew me away, I started explaining the look that I wanted and she immediately pulled up 5-10 pictures that were EXACTLY what I was looking for. She loved the look I was going for and I could tell by her attitude she loved the type of patient I was as much I loved the type of surgeon she was. We saw eye to eye on all aspects of it and I left feeling better than I came in! Overall wonderful experience!!
Except for one area that needs redoing, I was happy with the result and the staff are all very kind and helpful.
Best experience.... Dr Saltz & Ruth her nurse were awesome from the first visit to my last. Keeping me informed on everything and making me feel at ease about getting a breast lift. The outcome was more then I could have imaged and I am very so very happy with results. I highly recommend Dr Saltz.
[Consultation Review] My nurse was knowledgeable nice and understanding of my 13 month old daughter. Dr saltz was also very informative and understanding
Very Friendly staff, very helpful and caring
This was my first surgical experience and I am completely satisfied by my experience and results. Dr. Saltz and Ruth listened to all of my questions and concerns. Thank you Dr. Saltz!!!
[Consultation Review] The staff was friendly and informative. Every staff member helped me with open arms. I feel really comfortable with my doctor and trust her completely!
Dr Saltz allowed me to express my desires, listened to my goals, discussed the realities of the results and performed the procedure as agreed. It was an overall very satisfactory experience. The personnel at the practice, from reception to patient coordinator to nurse were friendly, well trained and patient oriented. I especially appreciated that my appointments were on time with no long waits. I am very pleased with my surgery and Dr. Saltz. I would happily recommend her to others.
[Consultation Review] Very informative, friendly
[Consultation Review] The office staff were very professional and knowledgeable. The office atmosphere was not only comfortable but professional and pleasing to be in. I have past experience with plastic surgeons and Dr. Saltz seems very experienced and proficient in what she does - which is obviously the reason I decided to schedule my surgery with her practice.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and team were highly knowledgeable, and made me feel so comfortable. I feel they are up on the latest information, and the people in the office make a great team.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth made me comfortable from the beginning, were completely professional and treated me as a long time client. I would be happy to send friends who want the best care to be treated with them. They make a great team.
Dr Saltz and staff treat you like you're their favorite. They listen, they understand, they want to help. They are warm and kind and I couldn't have felt more comfortable. My result were BEYOND amazing. I feel like a new woman. Best surgical experience EVER.
I am happy with my results and have not had any problems thus far. Although it would be very helpful if the nurse/ surgeon would explain in more detail about the recovery. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend Dr. Saltz
Dr. Saltz's attention to detail was beyond words. She made every effort to ensure that the size I wanted would be perfect, and it is! I couldn't be happier with the overall experience. Not once was a nervous or uncomfortable and both the nurse Ruth, and Dr. Saltz were very friendly and personable. If I ever I need another procedure, this is the doctor I will see. Thank you Dr. Saltz!
[Consultation Review] I was very impressed Dr. Saltz and her team. Very knowledgable and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Saltz and her practitioner explained the surgery and my options in full detail, as well as listing my options and their recommendations. I look forward to scheduling my surgery in the coming year!
I had a breast augmentation done by a surgeon in PA in 2011. I moved to CA in 2012 and was in an auto accident. The impact of the seatbelt caused my left implant to bottom out. My massage therapist suggested that I make and appointment with Dr. Brahme at LJCSC. He referred me to another surgeon in the group, Dr. Saltz, for a revision procedure. In August, Dr. Saltz revised both breasts with grafts to add additional support. Not only did I receive the most AMAZING care and attention from the surgeons and staff, but the outcome is ten times better than I ever could have imagined! I work in the medical field and I met with several plastic surgeons before making a decision on my initial augmentation and the revision surgery. HANDS DOWN, Dr. Saltz is an absolute expert in the field. Her attention to detail speaks for itself. Her staff is highly trained and patient satisfaction is a top priority. I was beyond impressed with my overall experience and am so grateful that I chose Dr. Saltz and LJCSC for this procedure! I HIGHLY recommend this Center, the staff, and Dr. Saltz. They're simply amazing!!!!
[Consultation Review] I felt like how she really took her time to understand what I wanted I didn't feel rushed, and the whole staff really cared about my results and if I was happy with them.
Every aspect of my experience was wonderful. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and informed.
[Consultation Review] I enjoyed the friendliness of the employees and the over all consultation experience.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was very informative, left out no details, answered all my questions and concerns. Surgeon walked me through the procedure in detail, really observed my body. Very helpful. I've had other consults and they were quick, no detail and impersonal. I really liked the Dr. Salt's consult and staff, she made me feel super comfortable and I appreciate the detailed explanation of the procedure.
The staff was always friendly and willing to answer any questions I had prior to surgery and after. Dr. Saltz really listened to what I wanted and then gave her own advice, which I really appreciated.
[Consultation Review] From the first phone i made to Dr Saltz's office to meeting the them in person was met with very friendly staff and durning my visit Dr Saltz and Ruth were very open & honest and listen to me and made me feel very confident. I would highly recommend Dr Saltz Nd her staff (Ruth) to all my family and friends .
I was well informed and felt like I could relax and know that I was in good hands. Everyone there was very nice and polite. I was taken care of in a timely manner when I did have my two problems with the right breast.
LOVE, love, love Dr. Saltz and Ruth.
[Consultation Review] Everyone from the receptionist, to Ruth, to Janelle was so nice! I was able to try on sizers" and look at before and after pictures of women who looked similar to me, which was very helpful. It was also helpful to go over all the payment options with Janelle-she didn't make me feel any pressure at all. I was excited to get a breast augmentation done, and had a specific set of dates where I could do it. They accommodated me no problem. Dr. Saltz was not there for the initial consultation, because she is so highly sought after:) but I already had done research and knew I wanted her to be my surgeon. Great experience!"
[Consultation Review] friendly, knowledgeable staff. The clinic had a very calm welcoming atmosphere.
[Consultation Review] I felt very comfortable with both the surgeon and nurse. I felt like I was never rushed and allowed as much time as I needed.
The knowledgeable office staff made my overall experience very comfortable. They provided me with all of the necessary info on what to expect both before and after surgery.
Aside from the bad surgeon experience, the entire staff is amazing. I would come back for Ruth (head nurse) and Janelle (patient coordinator). They are so welcoming, VERY nice and accomodating and they just make you feel so comfortable. My results are almost exactly what I wanted (one scar is so much darker and deeper than the other and didn't line up the areola). I really don't think I would come back or recommend others here.
Dr Saltz is very meticulous, so along with her passion for her career she accomplished outstanding results for my procedure. I had only dreamed of having a body that Dr Saltz has given me, because of her amazing skills I have become a confident woman.
all was easy and the jobdone is the best
[Consultation Review] Dr Saltz listened to my request, answered all my questions and did not try to talk me into auxilliary procedures.
The staff were all amazing!! Jan, the patient coordinator was very helpful and friendly. The nurse, Ruth was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Saltz was very nice and professional! It is easy to see that she takes her job very seriously and she did her best to give me the results I wanted. I am very happy with my results!! The whole experience was great!!!
[Consultation Review] They were very knowledgable about the procedure that I would like to have. They would give me exactly what I want. I would love to have this procedure done but we can not afford it at the time. Hopefully in the future we will be able to because we would love to have this done.
knew who my surgeon was going to be as soon as i saw her picture, which was surprising bc i have been researching doctors for over two years for this procedure. would and have recommended this facility/surgeon and surgical procedure to any who is interested. no regrets, extraordinarily happy!
Dr Saltz and her nurses were all so wonderful. They really make you feel comfortable the second the appointment begins. Dr Saltz does excellent work and I am so happy with my results, I would recommend her and the practice to all of my friends or family.
Everything, from the time I submitted my request to be contacted to the present day, went so smoothly and everyone in the office genuinely cares for the patients. I never felt like I couldn't call or email to get questions answered, regardless of how seemingly silly some questions were.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz, Ruth, and the rest of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and patient with all my questions. They made me feel welcome and wanted, yet at the same time, I never felt pressured to make an immediate decision. When I decide to go forward with my breast augmentation, this is where I will go!
[Consultation Review] The nurse and the surgeon were both very thorough answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. it was professional from the time I walked in to the time I left. I had someone follow up with me afterward as well when I didn't call back (I was away on vacation)...which i appreciated.
[Consultation Review] Felt very warm, welcomed. Nurse/Doctor seemed to be genuinely concerned with mu thoughts, life, previous experiences, health, well-being.
[Consultation Review] The staff was very welcoming and professional. The office and waiting room were comfortable. It was nice to see the before and after pictures as well as her credentials.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth were amazing! They made me feel so comfortable and answered all of my questions. And I couldn't be more pleased with the results
Dr Saltz spoke to me like a person, rather than just a patient. She was very attentive to my needs and concerns, she listened to what I had to say, gave informative feedback, and answered all of my questions (even the stupid ones). I get very nervous in hospitals and medical facilities, but Dr Saltz was able to ease my nerves with her knowledge, experience, competence, and friendliness.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz, her nurse and staff are very open, honest and were aware of my needs and concerns. This will eventually be my second procedure, since Dr Saltz was my original surgeon for my Aug in 2005.
[Consultation Review] The staff made me feel very comfortable and put me at ease by answering all of my questions patiently and in as much detail as I required. Ruth and Dr. Saltz are both amazing!
[Consultation Review] I enjoy talking to the nurse, they made me feel as ease
The surgeon did a great job on my augmentation but seemed to rush a little during the post procedure appointments. She is highly sought after and very busy I am sure. Overall I am highly satisfied with my results.
[Consultation Review] I went to a few places for consultation. I was very surprised how welcome and at ease the dr and staff made me feel.This was the highest dollar amount and I feel they were worth every penny of it!!
[Consultation Review] My experience very highly satisfied. Because, I have done my breast from other country. I do know the different from both procedure. My surgeon explain to me very good and I do understand very well. The result very satisfied and I am very happy.
[Consultation Review] Made be feel comfortable. Made me feel like they really cared and were great listeners. I felt like they understood what look i wanted after i left.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz took time to listen to why I wanted the procedure. She spoke with me and was friendly and understanding. I visited another surgeon prior to this consultation and he showed little interest in me as a person and spent the 5 minutes he was in the room with me speaking to the nurse who then explained everything after he left. Ruth was awesome, she made me feel very comfortable and also showed interest in me as a person, not just a patient getting a procedure. The whole process has been great and I always look forward to my appointments.
[Consultation Review] Best decision i ever made! Dr. Saltz is an amazingly talented woman and did a wonderful job with my surgery, I couldnt be happier. And the staff were extremely nice and supportive and had no trouble communicating with me the before and afters that i needed to comply with my surgery
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and all the staff were very friendly and answered any concerns I had about my procedure. I felt very comfortable in making my decision to have my procedure done with LCSC. I couldn't have asked for anything more. They went above and beyond all my expectations.
[Consultation Review] it was all fantastic :)
[Consultation Review] Very easy to understand and very knowledgeable. Been there before andwas always satisfied. Looking forward to another great experience.Thank you
[Consultation Review] The staff was exceptional. They answered all the questions I had, made me feel comports or enough to book my procedure. I had been debating between three surgeons, after meeting dr saltz and her staff I knew immediately she was the surgeon for me. They care, they want to do the best work possible and they want to help you. What more could you ask for?
Size of implants is bigger than agreed upon, too big.Symmetry of breasts are not normal looking on the bottom, implant is visual.
[Consultation Review] Wonderful staff and office. Very informative and comfortable.
[Consultation Review] I was told I would see good results...They listen and saw the concerns
Dr. Saltz and Ruth were amazing. My constricted breasts have posed a problem for me my entire life making me feel abnormal and uncomfortable with my own body. They informed me that there were others like me and that they could not only help surgically but emotionally as well. Every step of the process was clearly laid out in front of me from pre op, post op and through my recovery process I have felt informed, cared for and most importantly satisfied with every aspect of the process. I look forward to using Dr. Saltz in the future and only have the highest regard for her, her staff and facility.
I was extremely comfortable throughout the entire process. Everyone in the office was very friendly while still being professional. My healing was fast and my results are awesome! Would absolutely recommend this practice (especially Dr. Saltz!)
I was very comfortable with the Nurse and Surgeon, I felt like I was heard and all my needs were met.
I could tell the surgeon was giving her full opinion on what was best for me and my body type. The surgeon was very knowledgable and helped me with decisions and made me feel at ease that the right decision would be made once in surgery.
The whole team was very friendly and to the point. Dr Saltz listened to what I wanted and I'm very happy with the results.
From my consultation, pre-op, actual mommy-makeover surgery, and post-op, I found Dr. Saltz and her staff especially educational, friendly, and professional. Dr. Saltz is a detail oriented precision perfectionist with her surgery!, while Ruth (Dr. Salz's nurse) is incredibly personable, knowledgeable, informative, helpful, and caring. Janelle (Dr. Salz's coordinator) is kind, communicative, and persistent. All the ladies at reception are personably sweet and attentive. I very much appreciate the entire team. And everyone was especially loving to my baby boy, as he was with me during most visits, which was extra special.
Dr. Saltz took a disaster of a breast augmentation and turned it in to exactly what I had hoped for the first time. She listened to me and exercised good judgment when it came to size. The nurse was excellent and was available to answer any questions or concerns. They got me in quickly and worked with my schedule.
My experience with ljcsc and Dr Saltz and Ruth was amazing! It was my first surgery and first time being put to sleep! I was so freaked out and everyone did an amazing job to assure me that everything was going to be fine. Once the surgery was over I felt like i just took a quick nap! I would do that all over agian in a heartbeat! Probably the best nap Ive had since kids!!! I am very happy with my natural result. Most times i dont think people can tell that ive had implants! But i definatly feel better!!! And since my consult i have always looked forward to my appointments with Dr Saltz and Ruth!!!
I felt comfortable in the setting. It feels clean which is important. It's organized. Every staff person encountered is polite and professional. Everyone is kind.I would recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone. My greatest recommendation is that I would myself return to her should I choose to have anything else taken care of.Ruth, Dr. Saltz's nurse is great. I appreciate her knowledge, kindness and eagerness to make sure all is well.
I called for an appointment and was able to get in to see Dr. Saltz within a week for my consultation and surgery which was ideal since I live 6 hours away. She was very easy to talk to and would describe her as a fun personality and really got me excited for my surgery. After my initial meeting I was not nervous at all. The procedure went very well and my outcome is exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Saltz was recommended to me and I recommend her to everyone I know.
The results of my surgery are the main reason I was highly satisfied with my doctor and her staff. Her nurse was also very friendly, helpful, and super funny. I also thought it was so nice that my doctor was very easy to contact after my surgery when I had questions. I had a very positive experience from start to finish.
Dr.Saltz took care to listen and explain any questions I had and took care of the situation when I did have a problem.My results are amazing and I am very happy with her quality of work.
I am a very detail oriented person who asks A LOT of questions. Dr. Saltz, Janelle and her nurses (and other nurses) were incredibly accommodating and always available to answer my questions. I was so prepared before my day of surgery so I was able to be relaxed (as much as one can be in such a circumstance) the day of. Dr. Saltz called me the first night after my surgery and I called the office several times for a couple months after - again, someone was always available to answer my questions. I am so pleased with the results and enjoyed the whole process!
I felt safe at all times and at ease with the procedure and the risks. Everyone was friendly and accommodating and took my concerns seriously. The atmosphere was supportive, reassuring and caring.
I was so impressed with the office and the staff as soon as I walked in the door for the first time. So friendly and made me so comfortable. Beautiful office and happened to be the best priced!
[Consultation Review] They are so great there and I would highly recommend them over other facilities, and Dr Saltz
[Consultation Review] The staff was very welcoming and polite. Even though I had to wait because the appointments were running behind, the staff informed about the delay, made me as comfortable as they could, and kept updating me on status.
[Consultation Review] Very impressed with Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth.Both informative, caring and gave comprehensive information.
Everyone was very nice and informative, they made me feel special.
The friendliness and support of the entire staff made me feel very comfortable with my decision to have surgery. Having every step of my procedure and recovery thoroughly explained made me feel completely at ease. There was always someone immediately available to answer any question I had, no matter how minor. I am extremely satisfied with my results!
I could not have been happier with the way I was treated by Dr. Saltz, Ruth, and staff. My experience was wonderful. I was well informed and treated with the utmost care and attention. Ruth went as far as to give me her cell phone number in case I couldn't get ahold of anyone in the office!!! Dr. Saltz did an amazing job. I had no complications what so ever! She kept me calm and informed at all times.My scars are small and look wonderful. She is indeed an expert in her field. I would recommend your facility to everyone! I recently had my breast augmentation somewhere else because we moved out of state and could not have it performed at LJCSC. The care I have received at this other facility isn't even close to how wonderful I was treated by Dr. Saltz and staff. Not even close! I could never thank you enough for doing such an incredible job!
The staff was so helpful and friendly! I felt extremely comfortable and love the results! I am constantly recommended Dr. Saltz already!!
[Consultation Review] Great doctors, great staff, great results!
Everyone was positive and supportive. My surgery results are exactly as expected. I I'm very happy!
highly professional, kind and skilled
I'm very much happy with my breast implant and glad I did the procedure w/ Dr. Salz.
[Consultation Review] I was so thoroughly impressed with all aspects of this office. The surgeon I met with was very friendly and personable - which is important during a decision like this. I didn't feel pushed about getting a certain size. After meeting with another Dr. prior, there was no question about me coming back to LJCSC for my procedure. There is nothing I could suggest that would have made it a better experience (outside of making it cheaper!). ;-)
[Consultation Review] Love the staff made me feel at ease.
[Consultation Review] I thought everyone who worked there was very professional and knew exactly what they were talking about. The Doctor was great. She was very knowledgable, as was her nurse. I felt completely comfortable there and scheduling a procedure.
Dr. Saltz is incredibly professional and great at what she does. She made me comfortable and did great work. The facility is very nice and the staff is friendly and helpful.
[Consultation Review] Great doctor and nurse.
[Consultation Review] I absolutely loved Dr Saltz, her nurse Ruth, Jan and Yvette at the front. I felt so comfortable there and like everyone in the office knew me after my initial consult. I have already recommended the practice to multiple friends. Dr Saltz did a fabulous job and I love my results from my breast aug.
[Consultation Review] Great staff and Doctors
[Consultation Review] All the staff at LJCSC were friendly and made my consult as relaxing as possible. The nurse and surgeon answered all of my questions, usually before I even had a chance to have to ask them. I would have like more personal before and after" sizing photos during the consult for comparison purposes (I ended up scheduling another appointment to take additional photos) - but other than that, I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz and LJCSC."
[Consultation Review] Personable, knowledgeable, happy, friendly, made me feel at ease, comfortable
I have capsular contractions
[Consultation Review] They were awesome! I cant wait until Febuary.. I am not seeking additional consultations with anyone else!
Dr Saltz, Ruth, and ALL the staff exceeded my expectations in every way. Have already recommened to friend less than 2 months out of surgery. While getting fitted for new bras and swimsuits was asked about my surgeon and complemented.
[Consultation Review] The staff was very kind they made me feel like we were all a big family, staff and surgeon made sure that I didn't have any questions and answered all questions until they were sure I understood everything.
[Consultation Review] From the receptionist, to nurse, to doctor- every person was extremely knowledgable about the procedure for which I was inquiring. The staff was professional, kind, respectful and able to personally relate. Most of all I enjoyed the honesty provided about risks and side effects. Thorough explanations were given for every question. I am confident with having my breast augmentation done with this practice because of their professionalism, wisdom, honesty and experience.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz is an amazing surgeon and her skills are proven. I had a severe case of sag before my breast procedure and she was extremely informative and realistic during my consult.Dr. Saltz has an awesome staff in her office and operating room, they make you feel relaxed and comfortable. I recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone who wants beautiful results. My life has changed and for the fist time in many years, I feel beautiful.
[Consultation Review] I felt very very welcome. I felt dr saltz listen to me and really new just what I wanted and Ruth was very friendly as well. Mary was so nice and when I had called in for questions she always got right back to me. I am very pleased with everything so far.
This was my second breast augmentation with Dr. Saltz, I had capsular contracture. It was bittersweet as I was not happy with the size that I had originally chosen. I decided to increase the breast implant size and change to textured implants- I could not be happier! I knew that I was in the best hands, Dr. Saltz and Ruth listened to what I wanted, taking into consideration what was appropriate for my body. Dr. Salt's expertise is priceless, she and her staff are excellent at what they do. I would also like to say Julieanne (I hope I spelled her name right) did an excellent job going over sizing at my pre-op appointment, she really listened and help guide me through what my options were. If I were to need anymore cosmetic surgery (after kids! or botox!) I will be back and always recommend Dr. Saltz to my friends and family. Dr. Saltz and Ruth are a great team and balance each other out perfectly, thank you Ruth for pushing for a bigger size in the operating room, the final size is perfect without being over the top. Also- the music, decor, atmosphere in the looby/waiting room, I loved. It relaxed me and made me feel comfortable at each and every visit.
[Consultation Review] After visiting other surgeons for consultations it is more and more evident how unprofessional and highly expensive your business is. Everyone was friendly, but we were not there to be entertained as it seemed that was the goal. We have had other surgeons spend a lot more time with us. I have also learned about other procedures that are available that I didn't even know about. In addition, your pictures did not even accurately depict the procedure I am looking for. We were told that they are old pictures and disregard the scars because mine would not look like that? At the end of the office visit we were taken in a room where the clerk told us the price, but was in definite hurry and wrote on the paper some notes that she held in her hand??? Too rushed to even set the paper down on the desk. I am just glad that we are shopping around...it will pay off for sure...
[Consultation Review] The level of expertise and professionalism truly makes you feel at ease. Any reservations or concerns you may have prior to dealing with Dr. Saltz and her staff will be taken care of. You will actually feel safe doing this which is the most assuring feeling.
Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth made me feel like a friend. Janelle the coordinator did, as well. They are supportive, helpful and fun! They remember who I am, and what my life is like outside the decision to have surgery. Or maybe they just take awesome notes! Either way, it really makes me feel safe with them! Nice job, ladies!
From my first contact email, all the way through my follow up appointments, my experience was perfect. I am thrilled with the results and I felt relaxed and informed throughout the process.
The surgeon was extremely skilled and knowledgeable and she listened to what I wanted rather than try to give me a boilerplate solution or push me into a larger size than would fit with my expectations and desires. She suggested an intermediate solution that I would not have even known to ask about that was perfect. The results are wonderfully natural and it is very obvious why she has such a good reputation. The nurse was very helpful explaining all the pre- and post-op care/preparations. I felt very comfortable discussing all topics surrounding the procedure with the nurse and the surgeon. Everyone else I met and worked with from the patient coordinator to the receptionists were nice, empathetic yet professional. Truly a top-notch team.
[Consultation Review] Friendly staff, Dr, Saltz' nurse, Ruth was very nice, very helpful. Put me at ease.Nice facility, felt safe.
My results are fantastic! The staff was very attentive and nice. The center is so clean and professional. Classy.
I am a returning patient. I had such a positive experience with Dr. Saltz that I never considered anyone else. The second surgery not only surpassed my expectations but was better than my first experience. Several of my friends have since become her patients and I couldn't speak more praise for the practice! I am extremely happy that my breasts don't look fake. In fact, they look so natural that many of my friends have not even suspected I had a procedure done. The FIRST thing they say when I tell them is, Who is your doctor?" If you are considering breast augmentation, you cannot go wrong with Dr. Saltz. She is a perfectionist that listens to your desires, lifestyle and provides you honest feedback on how to achieve the look you are going for. I'll definitely be a life long patient!"
[Consultation Review] The staff made me extremely comfortable, were all very friendly and welcoming. The office is beautiful, much nicer than others I visited, as well as the technology used. Scheduling was easy, I was always taken back on time (sometimes even early if I arrived early). I am very pleased with my visit.
[Consultation Review] The doctor and nurses are very friendly and knowledgeable. You never feel rushed.
Dr. Saltz listened to my concerns, was easy to talk to, and took time with me. I did not feel as though I was rushed and that she had to get to the next patient. Ruth was great as well
I love Dr. Saltz and her staff because they are warm and professional and really listen to their patients. Prior to my breast augmentation/lift in 2003, I visited 4 other surgeons for a consultation. Dr. Saltz was the only one that I felt would give me the results that I wanted to achieve. As a woman, I think she is more in touch with what we want and takes a more conservative approach, as opposed to a male surgeon. I returned to her office in 2012 to have my saline implants replaced with silicone and I am extremely happy with the results (so is my boyfriend). Thank you Dr. Saltz and your staff at LJCSC.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth are the best at what they do. I loved the fact that Dr. Saltz could relate to my medical concerns as she too had gone through the same procedure herself. Ruth was amazing at explaining every aspect of the procedures and her friendly attitude always made feel confident that I was in the best hands. At my appointments, they always made my husband and I feel very comfortable. It never felt like I was seeing a doctor, but people that I've known for a long time. During my recovery process they made themselves easily available to us. And the fact, that the next morning after my procedure Ruth made a house call, that assured me that I was in the best of care and that I had made the right choice when I chose Dr. Salts and Ruth. The overall experience I received from them and staff was very professional and friendly. Now I'm 3 months post op, and I'm so happy with my recovery. I love my results and I'm so thankful to Dr. Saltz for my amazing results, pleasant experience and making me feel more confident about my body! There's no doubt that I would recommend Dr. Saltz to all my friend and family.
[Consultation Review] The place was fine, Dr. Saltz doesn't explain why she is doing things, just what she needs to do for the result she wants. The price was the reason I would not have Dr. Saltz do my revision, it is almost twice as much as any other board certified surgeon in the area. I really do appreciate the time she took, she did a great job on a friend.
Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth made me feel comfortable from the start. They as a team are wonderful. Even when issues of an infection were present, they never made me feel like I was alone. They comforted me and told me that they would do everything they can to fix the problem.
Dr Saltz was so direct and positive about the procedure it made me feel confident.
[Consultation Review] Dr Saltz is an amazing surgeant very professional she was higly recomended from a friend.. staff was very nice and acomidating
[Consultation Review] The experience level clearly shows. Dr Saltz is realistic and practical and suggested an intermediate solution that met my desire for a different look while still looking natural.
[Consultation Review] I was most impressed with feeling like I was among trusted friends at the office and the incredible follow up. The Dr. is extremely confident and thorough, yet still personal and sensitive to concerns.
[Consultation Review] I felt very comfortable and taken care of the whole time. Every member of the staff was friendly and knowledgable. My results are exactly what I wanted so I'm very happy with the whole experience!
All the staff was overly nice and accommodating. The nurse and surgeon made me feel very comfortable before, during and after my surgery.
[Consultation Review] I felt Dr. Saltz and Ruth were extremely knowledgeable, confident and qualified. They put me at ease by making me feel comfortable, relaxed and made the experience fun" and not so clinical and scary."
Ruth and dr saltz made me feel very comfortable. Their confidence as well as clear attention to detail made me feel that they were as analytical and invested in the way that I looked as I was. The time given to me at consult to discuss the options and differences in product helped me make a well informed decision.
[Consultation Review] Ruth Ann and Dr. Saltz were people who I relate to and show passion in what they do. I was Highly Satisfied with the visit, but the price was significantly higher than I was expecting.
[Consultation Review] I just scheduled my surgery for Breast Augmentation. Up to this point the staff has gone above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with my decision. Every time I have called or emailed I get a response that day with very thorough answers to my questions. I can not comment on the actual procedure as it has not yet been performed, but I can highly recommend that people consider Dr. Saltz when looking for a plastic surgeon.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing! They helped me step by step thru everything, I could call at any time with questions and come in if I had any concerns. It was o e of my best experiences. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. I am so happy with how my surgery turned out, it has made so much more confident.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz and the staff at LJCSC are the best! I always feel very comfortable and at ease with everyone in the office and I was confident that Dr. Saltz really listened to my concerns and what I wanted to achieve during my implant revision procedure. I love my new and improved breasts! Thank you Dr. Saltz and staff! You are wonderful!
[Consultation Review] The provider and nurse were friendly, informative, and reassuring.
[Consultation Review] Informative and friendly RN made me feel immediately comfortable. The consultation process was easy and quick. Overall exeprience was excellent, except I was to receive a follow up call from the financial cooridnator and never did. Besides that, I look forward to schedulig my procedure shortly.
From start to finish Dr Saltz and the entire staff were amazing. Pre-op, post-op, during the procedure, everything was fluid. I even had a minor issue and she handled it right away even though it was after hours. I cannot say enough good things about these ladies and gentleman (can't forget about him). I love the results. I could not have imagined it would look this good. I have also recommended her to a friend who will be seeing her later this week. Absolutely the best.
[Consultation Review] The information that was left out was the pain, stiffness, aches, soreness, and discomfort post surgery that patients can experience. Also, that arnica gel is okay on the non sutured part of the breast skin. What to do if the narcotics cause nausea and vomiting. Side effects of general anesthesia, I had a two and a half day headaches. I never have headaches nor migraines. It would have been more helpful to have a day to day chart or information sheet regarding recovery.
[Consultation Review] dr saltz and nurse ruth make a perfect team, together they are amazing!!!dr saltz is a true artist and surgeon, her talents are phenomenal!! dr saltz has helped me to improve my body as well as my confidence, that alone is priceless. i will look at my body every day, i will forever be thankful for her talents, nurse ruth is a truly caring and natually compassionate person, i was very modest, and she helped me to feel comfortable through the whole experience, that was very important to me, she visited me at my home the day after surgery, and was always available for my questions, together they compliment each other to the fullest!!!! xoxooxo
[Consultation Review] Love Dr. Saltz and her nurse and Mary.
Customer service was great. My nurse and surgeon was extremely nice and made me feel excited for surgery rather than feeling scared or nervous. Amazing and cleanliness of the facility. Post operations in checking my progress was helpful in determining whether the outcome of my progress was okay which eased my mind. Overall everything was more than great I would definitely do it again if I had to! If I decide to do another cosmetic surgery in the future, I would definitely come back! Everything was more than wonderful! My experience was life changing and I'm extremely happy with my breasts!
[Consultation Review] The high level of caring and skill. Love Ruth, she keeps everything on a personal/fun/relaxed level. Love Janelle, she is always easy to talk to and very sweet. Dr. Saltz's reputation and skill is amazing!
Great results! Wonderful staff:)
I raised the issue of what I wanted at the day of the surgery to size up a cup higher to what I signed for 450cc to 500 cc but was denied. I was hoping to get what I paid for but ended unhappy.
Everyone was kind, put my needs first, and explained eerything in detail. I felt very comfortable and excited about my surgery. Dr. Saltz was an amazing surgeon and will go back to her again for any other surgeries.
[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz was very informative with the details invloved for my procedure. She was spent alot of time ensuring that I fully understood the options to recieve my desired result. i was impressed by her genuine demeaner & attention to detail. The only reason I did not choose her for my procedure is purely b/c the cost was above what I expected to pay!!
[Consultation Review] I am a returning patient. I was so thoroughly pleased with my previous experience, that I never considered anywhere else other than Dr. Saltz for this one. I have recommended her to my friends, who have since become her patients.
[Consultation Review] After such amazing results with my tummy tuck, I went back to have two more procedures done with incredible result. I already had a friend use my same surgeon obtaining incredible results, I am very pleased! Best care
[Consultation Review] Just a suggestion:The waiting room could have healthy snacks instead of candy and cookies. (Fresh Fruit, mini protein or granola bars)And water with easy access for clients. (Spa water, eg water with fruit or cucumber in a pitcher, instead of a cooler. Just staying true to the healthy lifestyle that a client needs to have before/after a procedure. Consistent client follow up after consultation, by email. Its about building relationships to establish trust. Making yourself a resource during client research to continually build that relationship. You want to like who your giving your money to. Just knowing a particular Dr. is the best" at what they do in their field, is not enough. "
Great experience. I have no complaints whatsoever and if I have anymore survey I would definitely be returning to LJCSC.
[Consultation Review] From A to Z, everything about my consultation, communications, surgery and after-care were handled in the utmost professional, informative, prompt and caring way by all of the staff I have encountered at LJCSC. Since my surgeon was Dr. Saltz, I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of any of the services provided at LJCSC, and I will ONLY use her for any future procedures I may have done. She was very good about getting clear communication on exactly what results I was looking for, and was very conscientious about achieving it. I am so happy with the results of my breast augmentation revision, and I really wish I had gone to her years ago.
Dr. Saltz answered all of my questions and she really listened to what I wanted. She was realistic in discussing sizing based on my current lifestyle and I really liked that. Her results in her post op photo book were amazing and I am SO happy with my results. I would recommend her to any and everyone!
There were two things that I wasn't highly satisfied with during the whole process.1. Although the nurses contacted me at least three times in the first week following surgery (which was great!), I really started to feel apprehensive between 3-5 weeks. Once you get over the initial pain and swelling, you start to feel insecure about the other random pains, the look of the incisions, hardened areas in the breast, etc. I did call once to talk to a nurse, and she was helpful. I would suggest that the nurses touch base with the patient before the two month visit. 2. Sizing is a very big deal! I was convinced that I picked the right size, but now believe that I went to small. Why? I have read online that the sizers show you to be 10-20\% larger than you will appear after surgery. Maybe patients could take a few sizers home for a week or even purchase a few to make sure they pick the right size. The two times I tried the sizers on in the office, I picked the same size each time. Nevertheless, the pictures I took with the sizers show that I was larger than I actually look after surgery. I like how my breasts look naked, but in clothes I am not quite satisfied.
I was extremely nervous about the whole procedure, but the staff at LJSC were beyond excellent. They gave me every piece of information I asked for and made me feel completely comfortable from begining to end. I absolutely love the results! I couldn't have imagined better! Everyone at LJSC contributed to my satisfaction from the time I scheduled my consultation. I've already told all my friends where to go if they are even considering cosmetic surgery!
I was very satisfied with my experience and happy that I choose the surgeon that I did. I would have liked to have been more informed about how long I needed to wait after surgery to see the results that I was expecting. I was unaware of what to expect as far as the appearance of my implants and how they would appear like pectoral implants and slowly transition and fill into breasts. I would not think twice about using my surgeon for future procedures and look forward to referring friends and family.
My surgery was complicated, but Dr Saltz is very skilled and the outcome is better than I was willing to hope for. I'm very satisfied with the outcome.
[Consultation Review] The staff were all very friendly and attentive. They related to me and were very thorough explaining the procedure and the recovery. I was comfortable the entire time from beginning until end. I received two follow up emails after the procedure and in between doctor visits checking in on how I am feeling, as well as a phone call.
[Consultation Review] The atmosphere in the office was very relaxed and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, personal, and attentive. The staff made sure I had all the information I needed and this made me feel confident that I was in good hands. Being able to joke around and laugh lightened up things. Thank you so much!!!!!
[Consultation Review] service, atmosphere, nurse, doctor were great. made me feel very comfortable and important.
[Consultation Review] The entire staff was friendly and very informed as to the procedures. They answered any and all questions and were more than interested in my best interest.
[Consultation Review] I felt they were all very real and they made new feel comfortable. I know two if her past patients so I have seen her work in person. Her nurse was extremely fun and entertaining. I left feeling like I would be in the best possible hands when I have the surgery, as well as for the .
[Consultation Review] The staff is warm and engaging and Dr. Saltz takes a very personal approach. They have gone above and beyond in making me feel comfortable.
I was comfortable. All the staff and the surgeon listened to me. I wasn't embarrassed at any time. The surgeon checked up on me before and after my surgery. The nurse responded to all my emails and concerns. What I paid was worth it. My scars aren't visible. My needs were met. I would not recommend anyone but my surgeon. The nurse, surgeon and her team are amazing. This was a life changing experience and I am happy and grateful to have found her. The work they did is incredible.
I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz for your breast augmentation surgery. I felt comfortable and confident with her as my doctor. I am completely satisfied with my experience at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center and most of all, with my results! You will not regret your decision!
[Consultation Review] I was very impressed with my consultation and the staff and surgeon at my appointment. I would absolutely choose this surgeon for my plastic surgery needs.
It was very difficult to know the size of the implants that I should get. I was hoping to be considerably bigger than what I am after the surgery. As a patient, I am used to dealing in cup sizes versus cc's. So trying to make a decision on how many cc's I wanted was very hard and I did not end up getting exactly what I was wanting.
[Consultation Review] Absolutely love my nurse Ruth, she is so friendly, full of energy, and knowledgeable. She made me feel really comfortable during my appointment. The whole staff was really awesome!
[Consultation Review] The staff was very professional and most importantly available before and after surgery!!!! The attention I received was beyond what I anticipated!!!
I initially e-mailed inquiring about a breast lift. I promptly received a phone call from Jan, who scheduled a consult for me. Upon meeting Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth, I could tell I need not look any further. The entire staff is friendly, welcoming and charming. More than that they are extremely knowledgeable.Thank you for everything!!!
My surgeon and nurse were great. Also, everyone involved in the surgery process. They all made me feel really comfortable. Outcome was great. Couldn't be happier.:)
Dr. Saltz is very professional and is a very talented surgeon, my results were excellent. The staff is very knowledgeable and attentive prior to surgery and post surgery as well. It is an amazing surgical practice and I will recommend it highly.
The entire staff was very friendly and informative. They made my choice to have the surgery more comforting. I have already gone on numerous websites, like Yelp, to tell about your office. I am already planning on going back for my next procedure. Dr. Saltz is great!!!
I realy feel that Dr. Saltz listened to me and gave me what I wanted. She understood my lifestyle and helped me choose the size that was perfect. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend her.
I believe Dr. Saltz is the best in her field. Her knowledge and professionalism outshined every other Dr. I have heard about. The facility is beautiful and the staff very friendly. I would not think twice about recommending her or coming back again. The only thing that could have made it perfect was more explanation of post op needs and procedures as well as a phone number to call if potential problems arise that could be 24/7. Still I am not complaining. I love my new body!!!
Dr. Saltz listened to what I wanted when I said I wanted a B" cup. However, she did suggest a "C" cup based on my size and frame. (I had previously visited two male plastic surgeons and they only wanted to perform a lift vs. a reduction. My breasts were a size "E" before the surgery). I agreed to a small "C" cup and couldn't be happier."
After surgery, no one followed up with a phone call to check on me. Days later, a nurse called, only after my close friend called their office with questions. Also, disappointed with loss of sensation in entire right breast.
Both Dr. Saltz & her nurse Ruth made me feel comfortable & at ease from Day 1 with their friendly demeanor as well as their knowledge & expertise. Also before surgery the anesthesiologist played music I enjoyed to help me feel comfortable & relaxed before I went under (can't believe he actually had Thievery Corp on his playlist, so cool!). Everyone, from the office staff to Dr. Saltz were friendly & made me feel like family while still maintaining the utmost professionalism. I'm thrilled with the results & I highly recommend Dr. Saltz at every opportunity. Thank you thank you for such a positive experience! So happy!
I still feel my breast are not the same size. The right breast that was an implant only (not lift and implant) still has a huge divot when I lift my arms. My areola are oblong and not round. I also had liposuction to most of my body. All areas are very lumpy and cellulite-y not smooth at all.
Dr. Saltz and her head nurse were incredibly professional, kind hearted and gracious to me and my husband. The entire practice office is inviting, with great attention to detail. My coordinator was exceptional and worked with me regarding the financing. She was very dear to me and helpful when I felt I was not able to make this happen.
[Consultation Review] I am really happy with my experience at Dr. Saltz's office because of the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. I have felt really comfortable the three times I've been there. I appreciated how open Ruth was from the start. Her humor comes through and quickly took away my nerves during the initial consultation. Jan has also been really wonderful with communication and helping me get my questions and payment plan in place quickly.Overall I feel like this place is really professional and accommodating. I am not telling my workplace I'm getting the surgery done and Dr. Saltz's office has been able to fit me into appointments quickly on my lunch break and/or after work which has worked out perfectly in the past month.I am excited for the surgery tomorrow and will definitely recommend this place to friends in the future. Thank you!
[Consultation Review] Everyone was extremly friendly and knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable.
[Consultation Review] I was highly satisfied with every aspect that can be controlled by personnel. The only hiccup I had was with the quality of product (saline vs. Silicone). In a perfect world the saline would have a better warranty and life span, and better feel with ou rippling. The surgeon and her staff were flawless.
[Consultation Review] I was recommended by a friend and was very pleased with the whole process start to finish. Very friendly staff, very knowledgeable & professional.
[Consultation Review] Everyone is very friendly, office is beautiful, doctors before and after photos speak for themselves. I'm having surgery tomorrow.
Everything exceeded my expectations. Extremely professional staff, helpful, friendly, and informative.

[Consultation Review] This is a beautiful location, great staff, always on time and always informative. I loved how quickly I was able to receive my procedure after my consultation (within 2 week). Dr. Saltz was very thorough and her before and after pictures speak for themselves. If you want natural surgery and a great consultation this is the place for you.
[Consultation Review] I felt the staff at the service I received was great from the time I scheduled my appointment to the follow-up phone call after my consultation. I enjoyed meeting the surgeon and nurse that would be involved with my procedure. Each was extremely knowledgeable and ready to answer my questions. Additionally, I was made to feel very comfortable and looked forward to scheduling my procedure!
[Consultation Review] I actually had two consultations, about 11 months apart. Although I didn't schedule the surgery after the first appointment, I did end up scheduling it before the second consultation/pre-op visit. Dr. Saltz and Ruth are a great team, instilling lots of confidence. The MOST important consideration for me was that the doctor be highly qualified with years of experience.
[Consultation Review] looooved Ruth and Janelle and Dr. SaltzI would only recommend that after surgery as instense as mine and being over 50 it should be highly recommended for a 1 or 2 day stay in the hospital.
[Consultation Review] The whole experience from start to finish was very good. The staff was very friendly and informative. They provided me with plenty of information to make a good decision. The surgeon seemed very knowledgeable and skilled. The procedure went just as explained to me and I am very happy with the end results. I would refer anyone to LJCSC.
Dr. Saltz is truly an expert and my case was complicated. She went above and beyond! Her nurse Ruth is always very helpful and responsive. Then entire staff is very pleasant. I have already referred 2 friends!

[Consultation Review] The surgeon knew exactly what needed to be done and understood that the size of my breasts was not my concern it was the shape
[Consultation Review] I felt like my needs were met before, during, and after consultation. I liked that Dr Saltz really gauged my appearance and gave me a recommendation for the best possible result based on her expert opinion. I appreciated all of the information I was given and the warm and caring attitude with which it was given to me. I also thought Dr Saltz and her nurse (blanking on name) were a great duo. Dr Saltz's nurse was particularly helpful during my second consultation, allaying any concerns I had and answering all of our questions. I also truly appreciated that Dr Saltz emailed me after my first consultation. All in all, I felt comfortable upon first stepping into the office and am thrilled to have chosen Dr Saltz as my surgeon.
[Consultation Review] The office and staff were great as well as the surgeon. I wasn't expecting to have a consultation appointment so quickly, but there was a cancellation and Janelle got me right in. I'm very happy with how I was treated and how positive everyone around me in the office was.
[Consultation Review] I had great customer service from begining to end. Everyone was very friendly and informational making me feel extremely comfortable and more anxious to get the procedure done. I loved how i personally have a relationship with my doctor and staff as well as continously being updated through email and keeping in cobtact with everyone. I really loved my experience and will highly recommend and come back to possibly get more future procedures done. I am amazed of how great the location is and wonderful people are!
The nurse and surgeon, Dr. Saltz were very knowledgeable and made me feel extremely comfortable. They understood what I wanted and listened to and answered my million questions. I had trouble deciding on a certain cc and left it up to Dr. Saltz to make the final decision in surgery. She chose the perfect size and I could not be more happy with my new figure and the overall experience. I would recommend Dr. Saltz to any of my friends and family.
Dr. Salltz and her staff are incredible! Their before and after care and concern are over the top. They make you feel like you are their only patient. I can call at any time and there is always someone there to talk to me and answer my questions.

[Consultation Review] Dr Saltz and staff were highly profession and also friendly. I am looking forward to my procedure.

[Consultation Review] Dr. Saltz is very direct and explains things clearly and easy to understand, which I like. Her nurse Ruth is very positive and supportive and I felt like I was in great hands between the two of them. Both Dr. Saltz and Ruth put me and my concerns at ease and made me very comfortable with what was going on. I would highly recommend them to friends and family.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was very kind and made me feel very comfortable. The staff all listened to me and answered all my questions.
[Consultation Review] Dr salz and her staff were great. They were personable and listened to what I wanted. Dr Salz and Ruth spent plenty of time with me addressing my concerns and made sure they were clear on the problem and the size of implant I wanted. Everyone is extremely friendly! Mary was also very kind and helpful:)When I called in, Mary or Sara we quick to respond, which I really appreciated.
[Consultation Review] I was very impressed with the professional atmosphere as well as the friendly and accommodating staff. I feel that everyone really goes above and beyond to meet the needs of their patients. I've already recommended LJCSC to 5 people since my surgery last week because I truly had a great experience. Thank you!
[Consultation Review] I was impressed by the experience and knowledge of Dr. Saltz. I also appreciated the nurse being knowledgable as well about the procedure and providing information prior to Dr. Saltz entering the room. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Being able to review the website and credentials of the doctor prior to the consultation was comforting as well as informative. And last but not least, the amount of time that was spent doing the consultation was great. I did not feel rushed whatsoever. The Doctor and the nurse were both willing to go into detail of any and all questions, not to mention add a little humor to lighten the mood as well. I was recommended by a friend who had a breasts done by Dr. Saltz as well as several of her friends. Even though my procedure is going to be a tummy tuck, I am confident in the skills and quality of Dr. Saltz work.
[Consultation Review] The entire staff is very professional
The surgeon and everyone at her practice were warm, inviting, and knowledgeable. They made me feel at ease during the consult, pre-op, and procedure, as well as all the follow up appointments. The surgeon is highly skilled and her perfectionism shows in my results. I would definitely recommend her to anyone considering this procedure. After seeing many results and doing a lot of research, I don't think there is a better surgeon in the country.
[Consultation Review] The warmth of the staff, including Dr. Saltz, was very comforting. The nurse and patient care coordinator were both knowledgeable and caring. I was extremely nervous, because this is a big decision for me, but everyone made me feel as at ease as possible.
[Consultation Review] The Surgeon and nurse were really down to earth and made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Saltz is highly qualified and came highly recommended by several of my friends. She did a wonderful job with my breast augmentation and I am extremely satisfied with the results. I would recommend her to anyone and am confident they will be as happy with their results as I am with mine!
[Consultation Review] Time spent with me during consultation by nurse, surgeon, and coordinator. Warmth of nurse, surgeon, coordinator, and front desk staff.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was friendly, professional and thorough. I didn't feel pressured into scheduling the same day of my consultation. I appreciated the understanding that cosmetic surgery is a big decision and people need time to think and consider all aspects of surgery.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was friendly & knowledgeable. My needs were addressesd & guestions & concerns were answered. The office was warm and inviting making a comfortable expierence.
I was highly satisfied with my surgery experience because I was informed what to expect and walked through everything that would happen. The facility and staff made me feel welcome and comfortable 100\% of the time and the environment was soothing and friendly. My surgery results are just what I wanted and I have the surgeon to thank for doing such an amazing job. I would not change a thing about the whole experience! Very happy!
I WOULD LIKED TO BE COMPLETELY INFORMED AS TO THE LENGTH OF THE RECOVERY TIME AND THE EXTENT OF THE DIFFICULTY OF IN-HOME CARE.I WAS SOMEWHAT UNPREPARED FOR THE LEVEL OF PAIN AND LENGTH OF TIME THAT THE RECOVERY TAKES.
[Consultation Review] THE BEST!! I LOVE THIS PLACE
[Consultation Review] The entire staff was very helpful and professional. I really liked that the surgery center was right there in the same building and was comfortable and warm feeling.
[Consultation Review] Every single person involved in my procedure went above and beyond to make sure I was feeling comfortable and well taken care of. I had a wonderful first time experience and will come back for any other services I need in the future.
[Consultation Review] I did my research and found Dr. Saltz had the best knowledge and experience in Strattice (skin graphing) I felt she could meet my needs in revising my breast and giving the results I've been wanting for a very long time.
[Consultation Review] After receiving the initial quote, I felt that the price was too high. Then, after getting the revised quote, although appreciative of the due diligence, this cost breakdown further validated my hesitation.Note: I must point out that my fiancee' underwent a breast augmentation/implant there, and she and I are both extremely happy about the results. We both loved the professional, amenable interaction of the doctor and her nurses, and that cost was acceptable for me. However, for me to undergo my desired surgery, I would need to see a reduction on the total quoted price. ($8,000)
Tremendous experience with the entire staff and outstanding results.
[Consultation Review] I was contacts by multiple staff members in regard to questions, concerns. They also went out of their way to contact me and make sure I was conformable with my choice and fully answered all my questions. When I had issues/questions about surgery times, they were explained fully.
[Consultation Review] Because both Ruth and Dr. Saltz really took the time to listen and explain the best possible revision for me. They were compassionate and sensitive and I really felt heard and understood. I just wish I'd found Dr. Saltz before ever having had surgery the first time... I don't think I would need a revision!
[Consultation Review] I had two minor problems one they didnt go through the books like I had invision them nor showed us where they were so that we could see the other people who have had this procedure done so that I can get a look of what I might want to look like. The other thing was after my procedure the surgeon saw me for like two seconds and didnt even talk to my husband so that was a little frusterating I thought that we would have talked more. Other than that everything was AMAZING!
[Consultation Review] The friendliness and professionalism of Dr. Saltz and staff. Everyone, especially Ruth, has made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease thru the entire process!!!
[Consultation Review] I was highly satisfied because of the knowledge and expertise of Dr. Saltz, her certifications, her reputation, her staff, the respectful manner in which nurses and office staff treated me.
I am so glad I did the surgery. I had been putting it off, but LJCSC eased my concerns. Overall, it was a great experience and I feel and LOOK great. Thank You.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were friendly, attentive and made me feel like they really care about me. Everyone was very professional, but warm at the same time. I always felt very comfortable and I completely trusted in their expertise. Overall, a great experience. There is nothing that I would change except it may have been nice (but not necessarily imperative) to get a follow-up phone call from one of the nurses in the evening after the procedure.Very happy!Thank you!!!
The entire staff at the practice is amazing. I could always ask as many questions as possible and get answers. And the support is amazing because most if the staff have had surgery and can answer from real life experience. My surgeon is also very skilled and talented at what she does.
First of all- I am thrilled with the results of my surgery! My self confidence has risen significantly and I just feel so much better about how I look. I cannot say enough about the nurses at your facility. I have seen a few throughout my experience and everyone was kind, patient and VERY caring- especially Ruth! I wish I could remember the name of the nurse who was with me during my procedure- she was over the top fantastic. Her bedside manner was very soothing to a nervous patient. Just wonderful! I will and have referred Dr. Saltz to some friends. I just can't express enough how happy I am with the outcome of my surgery.
[Consultation Review] Team approach and great care, meticulous attention to detail from all disciplines involved with the service.
[Consultation Review] They are an awesome staff from what i have heard about and from what i learned during my apt. They answered everything And gave us more info about the producer then we knew and they noticed my breast plate which is abnormal right off the back! The office and girls that work there, make you feel so comfortable and the office all around is sparkle clean!
[Consultation Review] I felt both the Dr. and Nurse were very detailed in my consult. Overall the team there was very friendly and helpful. Made you feel comfortable.
[Consultation Review] I felt the surgeon had better skills at upselling me than actually caring for what would really be the best option for me. The focus was not really on what I came in there for in the first place and that I was just getting a hard sales pitch. It was really disappointing
[Consultation Review] Amount of time spent, surgeon reputation, genuine awareness of my concerns & specific responses to those concerns
I was so pleased with the overall experience I had. I was very comfortable with all explanations and had every question answered before, during and after my procedure. I highly recommend this surgeon and the office/practice.
Dr. Saltz and staff members are amazing. Answered all my questions and concerns. They made me feel very relaxed from beginning to end. Never once did I leave any of my visits with concerns and or questions that were not address. This was a wonderful experience.
[Consultation Review] Everyone was so friendly and put me at ease. They did an excellent job explaining the procedure and talking to me about the surgery and what I could expect after the surgery. They also made me aware that complications although unlikely were a possibility. Overall I felt the experience was educational and was made comfortable by the knowledgable staff.
Dr. Lori Saltz and her staff were extremely knowlegable, welcoming, comforting and attentive to my needs as a first time plastic surgery patient. I was unsure about the procedures that I chose to have and they helped me to make an informed and confident decision. I will always remember how pleasant they made the experience for me and I would definately return if I decided to have more procedures done, as well as refer any family member of friend to her and her wonderful team. Thank you Dr. Saltz!
Dr. Saltz performed my first breast aug 15 years ago and I wanted her to do this one as well. She is very professional and sensitive to my requests and I really like that. I know her staff is available should I have any questions about the procedure before or after surgery. I especially was surprised to receive a book with all the information about before and after surgery...that was a big help knowing what to expect even though this was my second time. The medication prescribed was exactly what I needed and used...alot has changed in 15 years and I must say I was very happy with the results of my breast aug and with the staff.
Dr. salz was very welcoming easy to talk to and very professional. Everyone in her office was friendly, respectful and professional. Most importantly i was very comfortable in asking questions. client for life !
All staff members are highly competent and very personable. They all made me feel very comfortable with the surgery and recovery process. The office is very comfortable and relaxing.
the damage done to my breast looks teribble and i dont know if it can be fixed at this point but I will consult again with my surgeon and also will get opinions from other doctors as well
[Consultation Review] I felt like I was a person, not an object. I felt as if the nurse and surgeon actually listened to what I said and really wanted what was in my best interest. They made me feel that my needs were of utmost importance.
The staff, especially the nurses, are so responsive and helpful. I had a lot of questions after my surgery and if I wasn't abe to reach a nurse immediately my call was returned promptly. Sarah was extremely helpful during my recovery and was very patient. She answered my questions so patiently and I felt like she really cared. The offIce staff is always so cheerful. I've had no trouble getting appointments around my schedule, so I didn't need to miss more work than I wanted to. Dr. Saltz did amazing work. I was shocked when I saw my before pictures. Overall the team is wonderful and I'd feel completely confident referring friends and family without hesitation.
The second time I went for a visit, the ladies at the front counter knew my name! And I was just walking in! That is very personable and is very warming. I was actually very surprised. The nurses have also had certain procedures done and it makes it more comfortable to talk to them about it because some of them have gone through the procedure themselves and they can personalize it. Dr. Saltz is amazing, so knowledgeable and understandable. This was just a very amazing place to go!
just an overall wonderful experience and great staff
Dr Salts was great and gave me exactly what i asked for, the surgery went well and exactly as they explained, she made me feel very comfortable and at ease about my decision. IM am very happy with the results and have recommend several friends to her after my procedure. Thank you

The entire process was over the top wonderful. Everyone who was in any contact with me, made me extremely comfortable, and treated me as if they had know me for a long time. Even between recovery visits they remembered trivial information. My surgeon and her nurse were excellent.
Dr. Saltz is an excellent surgeon and I am so happy with my results! I have a pretty, flat tummy again after having twins, and my breasts look better than ever!
I got what i wanted and never felt persuaded any other way. Even though I was unsure of size and material to choose I was given enough information by surgeon and nurses to decide what was best for me. Completely satisfied with results!
[Consultation Review] I felt that the nurse and the doctor were both extremely knowledgeable about my procedure. They spent a lot of time with me, answering all my questions, and providing me with all the information i would need to consider this procedure. They were extremely helpful. Their enthusiasm and friendliness put me at ease. I am definitely going to go through with the procedure with this practice.
I am a repeat patient. I had a great first experience so I returned when I needed a revision. I couldn't be happier.

Every procedure I have had there has been exceptional. I would reccommend to all my friends and will return for additional procedures in the future. The staff is friendly and well knowledgeable, answered all my questions and the facility is very clean and accessible.
Already said it, follow up was terrible!
Dr. Saltz is easy going and friendly, and provides information openly & honestly before/during/after surgery. Her staff is fun and knowledgeable, and they all made me feel comfortable from the start. Everyone made me feel as thought they'd known me for years, and they've all been there whenever I've had questions, even post-surgery. I've been back for other minor procedures, and will continue to recommend Dr. Saltz and her team to everyone!
