Melinda Haws, MD Reviews (278)


She is kind and courteous. Surgery was fast and painless. She came highly recommended

Breast Implant Removal

Everything about the procedure was perfect. Dr. Haws and her staff were wonderful during all of the pre and post-op appointments. It was quick and easy to get in to see Dr. Haws and the procedure was scheduled promptly. It couldn't have gone better. The staff and Dr. Haws made me feel comfortable and at ease.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Haws was simply amazing from the first consultation. I have received so many compliments on my scar from the abdominal-pasty portion which was not easy to do. I had a c-section scar as well as an umbilical hernia. She even went back and lipoed my breasts after I felt they were still too large. She just wanted me to be happy. I would recommend this surgery for any woman who struggles with diastatis recti and or hernia- it has changed my life. She made me feel comfortable from the beginning and that I was never asking for too much. I just love her!

Breast Lift

Dr. Haws and her office team were beyond professional, knowledgeable and very nice. From the first phone call to my follow ups the staff from the office and the hospital were comforting and polite. My breasts look great!!

Breast Implant Removal

The positive & caring way Dr. Haws helped me make a decision

Tummy Tuck

Expectations were clearly shared. Surgery was completed without complications. The healing process has been as expected. I had multiple procedures and my breast are healing nicely and look the way I expected.

Breast Implant Removal

Melinda listened to me....enough said

Breast Implant Removal

I had an unsuccessful (to say the least) breast augmentation and lift by a different surgeon. 4 months after that initial surgery I met with Dr. Haws thinking I would have to wait to have my implants out as well as for any other revisions that needed to be done but Dr. Haws said we could do it right away and do it under local. She listened to my concerns and helped me feel like myself again.


Dr. Haws was very thorough about everything. She made me feel at ease about the procedure. She is very good at what she does.

Breast Reduction

First, the office ran on time and efficiently. I found Dr. Haws to be both very pleasant and no nonsense at the same time and I felt very comfortable about being in her hands for the surgery. And that confidence was not misplaced - she did an excellent job. I am so very happy with the result.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Haws is a very skilled surgeon. She is honest and not greedy. I trust her completely.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone in Dr. Haws' office is amazing. From friendliness to knowledge - it was a joy to go through this whole process. Even the surgery center folks were amazing. Dr. Haws does the best work I have ever seen. Extremely satisfied all the way around. The results were amazing. I had previous scaring from a breast reduction. Dr. Haws fixed some of the old scars at no additional charge.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Haws never made me feel rushed in prepping appts. and really talked to me a lot about what I was unhappy with about myself and what she could do to help me. She and her staff had me fully prepared in what to expect before, during and after my surgery, and the things I could do to make my recovery the best. My results were better than I expected and my recovery was so much better from what I had read. I believe that was due to the type of stitching and the fact that I didn’t have drains. I am so pleased. I was able to remove 7lbs of skin and fat that I had carried around my midline for years. No matter how much weight I lose, I could not get this to go away. It made my clothes difficult to wear and bothersome depending where my clothes sat below and above the roll. Now, I fit in clothes and the more I get into shape the better I look and feel. I am so greatfull for the excellent surgeon, excellent preparation and excellent hospital experience. Even the surgery nurses, anesthesia, etc. was top. I am so happy how I look and if I’d known this would be so easy as far as time of recovery and outcome, I’d have done it years ago.

Breast Implant Removal

Knowledgeable surgeon and operating staff. Proper time was spent explaining surgery, outcome and answering questions.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Haws was very attentive and understood the special circumstances of my procedure.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Haws was understanding in my concern to have my texture-shell implants replaced with smooth-surface implants. Dr. Haws also listened to my desire of different outcome of shape of my physique with the new implants, as we went up in size and changed the profile of implant used. Dr. Haws explained everything in an easy-to-understand way; she helped save me money by doing the revision with only local anesthesia, and she's been very honest & transparent from the start. The recovery was a breeze!

Male Breast Reduction

Everything was well explained! Quick and easy! The staff was very nice.


Dr. Haws is an amazing doctor and the staff that was in the procedure kept my mind off of it, made sure I was comfortable, and showed a genuine interest about me and my hobbies/life. The procedure was quick and completely painless. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Haws was very open about what she was doing and didn’t make me feel embarrassed about my procedure. She made it feel completely normal.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Haws listened to exactly what I wanted. She explained everything in detail, including what to expect afterwards. She's a great doctor and did an excellent job.
