Dr. Raphael is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. I loved the fact that a price was given which includes everything before, during and after the surgery. There are no hidden fees and I am a former patient of his.
Dr. Raphael and his staff all provided exceptional care throughout the whole process from inquiring about surgery all the way through several weeks post-op. I was always treated with respect, and all of my questions and concerns were addressed appropriately when I had them. I could not be happier with my surgical results, and they 100% match what I expected to receive from my experience with Dr. Raphael.
Great friendly staff! Everyone had my best interest at heart.
The staff were able to answer all of my questions and were very easy to talk to.
The Dr. and his assistant were extremely warm and inviting from the moment we connected. There was nervousness going in, and that was immediately laid to rest. The comfort and openness was very relaxing and provided an overall pleasant experience.
Dr. Raphael and his team are phenomenal. I received my double incision FTM mastectomy with liposuction from Dr. Raphael and his team in January. The experience was amazing and I definitely recommend AIPS for this surgery. The center was warm and welcoming and all of the staff were eager to help. I truly felt accepted and appreciated, and well taken care of! I love AIPS. From pre-op to post-op, they are easy to contact and provide great details for care. AIPS you rock!
Dr. Raphael was the best surgeon I could have hoped for. I am thrilled with my results, and his bedside manner was superb. He was kind and made me feel comfortable at a very hard time, as did all of his staff. They were very quick to respond to emails, to answer any questions, and to make me feel at ease. I would and do recommend him to everyone.
Great communicators. Friendly and warm demeanor.
Catherine was very thorough helpful and kind. The experience was very pleasant and helpful with Catherine and Dr. Rapheal. Thank you!!!
Dr. Raphael went over the Procedure in great detail and I am currently working with his assistant Leslie.
My wife had procedures done about 20 years ago
I love Dr. Raphael and his staff. He is the sweetest doctor, ever. He understands and is so compassionate. This will be my 3rd surgery with him.
Comfort level with doctor and staff were great. Love the knowledge Catherine had and how easily she was able to answer any questions we had. Dr. Peter was great and to the point as well. We trust his suggestions in regards to the various sizes that would be ideal. thank you for the honest opinion.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. My surgeon was amazing and gave me all the information I wanted. The process was quick and easy.
I felt respected, listened to, and valued not only as a patient but as a human!! Since I was there for gender confirmation surgery the staff used the right name and pronouns. Doesn't sound like a big thing but it is. Also, I felt very confident in Dr. Raphael. Gender confirmation surgery is the most life enhancing procedure it seems like anyone can have. To find alignment and be so supported with Dr. Raphael and his staff was more than I could have asked for.
I have been seeing Dr. Raphael since I was 20 years old and I am now 42. His level of patient care and bedside manner are excellent! Dr. Raphael exceeds any expectations with patient care and results. Dr. Raphael listens to make sure that you are guaranteed the best results to be the best to you. Dr. Raphael will not perform a procedure that he deems unnecessary. I have wanted this specific procedure for almost 8 years and until I did my part he would not perform the surgery. My results are perfection. I received the exact results I wanted and expected. The recovery was very smooth. The level of professionalism by Dr. Raphael and his entire staff goes above and beyond.
My mother and sister have had surgeries done by Dr. Raphael. They do not trust any one else but him, that is why I saw him only. He was professional and down to earth, I feel 100% comfortable with him.
Dr. Raphael and Catherine were both very professional and informative--They answered all of my questions and gave me a prompt estimate :)
I have my breast augmentation done by Dr. Peter Ralphael before, I'm very happy with the outcome, now I'm going to have face lift done. I trust Dr. Ralphael, I recommend Dr. Ralpheal to anyone.
Everyone was nice and I never felt ostracized during any appointments. Anything I needed to know was explained and any questions I had were answered. Even getting the option to call back with any questions. The result of the surgery was the result desired, as if I had just been born that way.
Very professional and kind . All staff were very efficient and friendly
All staff friendly, respectful, and comforting. Everyone was very friendly and chill. This was my first time having a surgery and I would have been nervous, but all the nurses were so relaxed that I felt more comfortable.
Dr. Raphael is a gifted surgeon but also an artist. His work was superb and his patient interaction is flawless. Dr. Raphael, Catherine and Debbie were all very helpful, caring and professional.
Dr. Raphael, Debbie and Lori are amazing. They are kind, compassionate and highly skilled. I’ve been a patient due to a chronic issue for 16 years and I'm so grateful for their care!
First off, the facility was an inviting place where I felt completely comfortable. Next the staff was warm and friendly. Finally Dr. Raphael, was friendly and attentive to what I wanted!
Dr. Raphael and his team are absolutely amazing! They kept me comfortable and informed through the entire process. Even when I needed some assurance everything was healing correctly post-op they were there and answering all my questions. Not to mention Raphael is an artist! I’d recommend them any day. Raphael and his team were extremely supportive and helpful throughout the whole process. Honestly they saved my life.
The nurses were very funny and respectful. They helped with every question I needed answered. [Single best thing is...] The outcome of my scars
My consultation with Dr. Raphael was absolutely incredible. He and his staff made me feel so comfortable and were very reassuring about the work that I wished to have done. In the past, surgeons were quick to dismiss my thoughts and feelings about said work, so it was comforting to hear someone validate my wishes for the procedure that I will be having.
Dr. Raphael and his team were welcoming and kind from start to finish. They made sure that I was taken care of and my needs were met. He and his staff were super respectful with my pronouns and experience with gender. [Single best thing is...] The feeling of waking up and knowing that I had made one of the best decisions of my life. I was able to gain so much confidence from this surgery and Dr. Raphael's work.
I liked Dr. R. and his right hander. I thought he made sense and he came recommended to me through a couple of friends. I have not made up my mind yet. I'll do something eventually but I've not pulled the trigger yet. Thank you for reminding me that I need to move forward with this in my life.
The staff and doctor were so nice and friendly.
My surgery results are spectacular! My experience from beginning to end was first rate.
Staff was incredibly kind, it was something I'd been desiring for years, relatively painless
This is my third time to test Dr. Raphael's skills. As always he is an excellent surgeon. The staff and facility are top notch. Dr. Raphael listened to my goal for end result. He has an awesome bedside manner.
Staff was friendly and respectful. Dr. Raphael was a great guy and answered all my questions. The facility was very clean and very comfortable.
I was completely comfortable, all questions were answered to my satisfaction , the girls were very friendly and informative.
The staff was super friendly, professional and understanding. My wife and I were extremely comfortable with everyone there. Dr. Raphael is an amazing doctor and artist. I am thrilled with my results. I have received many compliments about the naturalness of the results. A weight has literally been lifted off my chest. It was well worth the time and expense to fly out.
I’ve not yet met the doctor
The whole staff was excellent. Great bedside manner very informative.
The staff was awesome and so helpful. Dr. Raphael was a nice guy who immediately made me feel at ease. On top of that I love my results! :) The freedom after healing from surgery was the best experience.
Dr. Peter Raphael is amazing in his work and he treats his patients like he actually cares.
The nurses were very helpful and they answered all of my questions and there was a lot of communication before the surgery took place. They got my paperwork for work filed very quickly. And the surgery was very well done and I love my results and get constant praise for the outcome I would genially recommend anyone to the clinic if they were looking to get surgery.
I feel like my best self, and the most confident I have ever been. I love my chest. I no longer feel dysphoria regarding breasts and it is genuinely life changing. I love walking around without a shirt.
Goals were achieved. Very happy with the results and my experience. Little to no pain after surgery. Incisions are almost unnoticeable. Would definitely schedule next surgery with this doctor.
I didn’t have any post op nausea and I’m pleased with my nose and I can wear sunglasses without discomfort.
I am very satisfied with the results from my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Raphael and his surgical team.
It was a positive experience with a very positive outcome. I am happy with my Rhinoplasty. Nothing but good things to say. I love it! Doctor Raphael did a fantastic job.
Best Care I’ve recieved. I love the staff and my Doctor. I no longer have to hide my tummy. I’m okay with getting naked now
The facility was immaculate in terms of cleanliness and atmosphere. It didn’t feel like a surgery center at all, it appeared more as a spa retreat or something of the sort due to how welcoming and inviting it was, which greatly reduced any stress I had prior to arrival. The staff’s mannerisms and respect were unrivaled, I felt like I was coming in and meeting my family with how they spoke to me. It was a very easy and quick experience, everything was explained and questions were answered in ways that I could easily understand. Dr. Raphael was also a pleasure to meet, he ensured that my comfort and happiness came first and always treated me with respect during my pre op appointment and just before surgery when he met with me. A big thank you to reception, the nurses, and everyone who assisted in my surgery. You guys rock.
The staff was amazing and so respectful. I was very nervous about my surgery but they made me feel at ease which made it easier to have done. I am very satisfied with my surgery. It truly changed my life. Thank you! [Single best thing is...] Confidence!! I can now walk around with out a shirt with so much confidence. I look in the mirror and see the body I was always supposed to have.
Very friendly and professional. Relatively easy process.
I’m very satisfied with the results. I’ll recommend my friends and family members.
I have no depth, and was told 6 inches wouldn’t be an issue. I now have to pay for a revision. Communication post operative was difficult, callous, and without any satisfactory answers!
Even though I had surgery on my chin I was told that I must wait 4 months to a year to see the results. Therefore, I can’t really say yet because not much has changed. They told me usually there’s not a big difference until it heals, so when it heals completely I’ll be able to say if I’m highly satisfied or not. Although I do see a bit or a difference.
2nd time I've chosen Dr Raphael for my elective surgery. He is the very best at what he does, is totally honest ( in a fantastic way ) and it is obvious he is a perfectionist. He perfected my body and I am forever grateful that he has chosen cosmetic surgery as his field. If choose to have something else done, I will see Dr Raphael for whatever I choose to do. I'm SO glad he has not retired yet. The staff is a reflection of him. The entire experience was a '10'. I am very conscious of my body. When I had my breasts done by Dr Raphael in 2004, I was ecstatic with my results. My new breasts improved my body, and, in turn, my self image. My most recent surgery was in September 2018, and I am still recovering. Still a bit sore and swollen, but I am so happy with my results (and I'm still swollen ), and I can't say enough about American Institute of Plastic Surgery. I live in Denver, and didn't hesitate at all to fly to Dallas to see Dr Raphael for my surgery. He is the BEST!!!!
From the staff to the atmosphere to the office. Everything was above par for me. My results are fantastic. And I felt heard which was important. My life was changed drastically by how easy it is for me to go through every day life. My happiness has completely changed. I’ve never been so content in my own skin.
Everything went smoothly. My instructions were easy to follow. My results are beautiful. I’m completely comfortable in my skin now. It has helped tremendously with my mental health and my confidence has skyrocketed.
I was satisfied with the overall experience, and I am absolutely delighted with my new body. I did feel left in the dark on some aspects regarding recovery, such as swelling possibly lasting for up to one year, and just overall expectations during recovery. The office staff seemed a bit hasty every time I visited with the exception of the free evaluation visit. Highly satisfied with the surgeon, excellent job from the first visit to the last.
I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction and was treated respectfully by the doctor and staff.
The staff was very friendly and provided me with all the needed information to make a well informed decision. They took the time to walk me step by step through what would be happening the day of surgery. From my experience I believe doctor Raphael is a top surgeon in the industry and I trust him with any future procedures I may decide on. He was a gentleman through the entire process. I had [unsuccessful] surgeries from previous doctors and this procedure has helped me to get to a more natural and beautiful shape that I am now able to add to with exercise.
The entire staff, facility and experience was incredible. I am in the health care profession and understand how demanding it is to provide excellent care, my experience at this office was beyond my expectations. This is the place to go if you need any of the services they provide. An overall awesome experience from start to where i am now
The entire care team was amazing. Dr. Raphael is an excellent surgeon, very personable, easy to talk to. My eyes look great. I'm just thrilled about the whole experience!
The consultation was informative and I did not feel pressured or rushed. Dr. Raphael was extremely caring and patient.
I am more confident in my appearance! My body has totally changed and I look great!!! Dr Raphael was the best as well as the staff. They answered all of my questions and reassured me every step of the way. The pre and post op information was very thorough and I knew exactly what to expect. Would higy reccomend to others. I. Fact, I already have!
I have always had a problem with severe nausea after surgery but dr Raphael prescribed we a great mixture of anti nausea RXs and I have had no problems. The pain has been very minimal. The doctor and staff are awesome. I’m I am delighted!!!
I had thought about having an augmentation after my 2 kids were born but just wasn't impressed with the phots I saw from other doctors. I waited 10+ years to decide I was ready after a friend recommended Dr Raphael. The details of everything explained to me from A to Z, start to finish and the friendly staff.
It was the best experience I have had. Everyone was so nice and really made me feel very comfortable!!!
I feel like I have had a jumpstart on getting my shape back. I always feel like Dr. Raphael and his staff care about me and aren't just trying to make money
My results . I had several complications and they office nurses where always very helpful and patient with me
I look and feel great. I am so happy with the overall experience. Thanks Dr. Raphael
The Surgeon and his staff were very helpful in answering all my questions. They understood where i was in my goals.
You all are genuinely the best most inclusive medical team I have ever had. Thank you for my life saving top surgery. My body was a prison and you freed me from it.
I feel the hernia repairs and abdominoplasty has strengthened my core and enabled me to move more easily and helped to reduce by back pain. Dr. Raphael and staff were friendly,knowledgeable and thorough in providing all the information that I needed and I was given excellent nursing care by Kim Allen the night of my surgery thru the following morning until I was discharged into the care of my family.
I came to Dr. Raphael to correct a previous breast augmentation where I developed capsular contracture. I was in constant pain every day. He changed my life and every day health. . Dr. Raphael took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure to me and made me feel at ease with the corrections he would be making to my previous surgery.
After binding my chest for five years, I was sure that my top surgery results would be ruined. However, my chest looks amazing! As I begin working out regularly they will only improve. I no longer have to bind my chest and can take my shirt off as I please. This surgery changed my life. It has improved my confidence, comfort, and posture. . I loved the entire experience I had with Dr. Raphael. The staff treated me with respect and kindness. I never felt unwelcome and everything felt very personal to me, unlike some surgeons who can tend to act robotic towards their patients. Before my surgery, Dr. Raphael looked at my mom and girlfriend and said that I would be treated like I was one of their own. His confidence, charm, and amazing bedside manner comforted my terrified mother. The nurses made sure I got to see my surgeon at least once before pre op and post op, which shows how much they care. I'm now three months post op (as of tomorrow) and I'm so grateful for the amazing work of Raphael and his staff. I cannot get over what an amazing experience I had; it was my first surgery and i wasn't even nervous because of the staff. 10/10 and I have zero complaints. I would recommend ai4ps to anyone.
I love Dr Raphael ‘s surgical skills and his fine cosmetic results esp with respect to the scar.... fine post surgical scar compared to my previous surgery with another plastic surgeon
The results were great couldn’t be happier . Experienced professional team and doctors
Dr Rafael is the best doctor I now .Iam very happy and satisfied .
Dr. Raphael is a pro! So is his staff. I still can believe the results are real and lasting! The way people react to me is more positive!
More youthful . Dr. Raphael is the main reason.
I was super satisfied with my new breast! Dr. Raphael was very helpful in helping me choose the right size and what looked the best. Would definitely recommend anyone to go see him. He is great at his job and makes you feel very comfortable. The surgery was only 45 minutes long, I was amazed!
The post surgical results were even better than we expected. I am very, very happy with the results. The removal of the cankles has improved my confidence greatly.
Staff were friendly, anesthesiologist was very knowledgeable and took time with me to help me feel comfortable. Very little wait time at surgical OR.
They were perfect
Everyone was very friendly and informative with a genuine care and desire to help.
The doctor and patient coordinator were very knowledgeable and professional and took their time with me answering all my questions. I did not feel rushed. I am impressed with Dr Raphael with his experience, knowledge and credentials and will use him to perform my procedure when I am ready to do so. I don't feel that I need to look any further for doctor, I am very pleased with Dr Raphael.
The doctor was very friendly and easy to talk to. His confidence put me at ease as we discussed my concerns with the surgical procedure.
The doctor and staff were great! The answered all my questions, offered advice and suggestions and were very friendly and accommodating.
I definitely am HIGHLY SATISFIED with my consultation with patient coordinator and surgeon. I requested consultation for my possible procedure through reference from my son who is in last phase of process of an extensive surgical procedure beginning in 2008. The information I received from surgeon and coordinator completely explained the procedure and extent of recovery based on my health and age. At their concerns and suggestions, I was completely in agreement that I should not continue further interest in this procedure. I am extremely impressed that the surgeon and coordinator cared more about my health and recovery to deny the procedure rather than what the financial benefit would be to the hospital and staff.
Highly Satisfied because I had a procedure done in the past with Dr. Raphael and I can't imagine going to consult any other plastic surgeon in the DFW area. I trust Dr. Raphael literally with my life.
I love my new tummy! Super flat and allows me to wear outfits like a bikini for the first time in 13 years. I am more confident and happy with my appearance in all my clothes. Dr. Raphel and his staff made me feel comfortable and explained everything in detail. Any question I had was answered and all my needs were met. He advised me on the procedures that would be most beneficial to me based on what I wanted done and I am very pleased.
Satisfied with the overall experience. The materials provided and explanation of the procedures and how to prepare before hand and afterwards. The only major pain was the cleaning of the face the day afterwards from laser. Wish I had known to take the pain meds before I got there but not sure it would have made a major difference as you will experience some pain and I knew that ahead of time due to other surgeries. Nothing is pain free. But over all it went well was only on pain meds for about 3 to 4 days and I would do it again.
The medical team at American Institute for Plastic Surgery is amazing. It is clear that everyone from the front desk to the surgical team truly care about all of their patients. This facility is a true asset and ally to all communities. This office has worked with me on several instances. I have never not felt safe, happy, or valued. I love the results that I have experienced! I love Dr. Raphael, Catherine, and Debbie, they always go above and beyond... in every way. I am very happy with my results.
Dr. Raphael and his team were absolutely amazing. Their attention do my procedures was outstanding. I’m able to wear clothes I haven’t been able to in years. I have more confidence.
Dr. Raphael explained things thoroughly, the entire staff was helpful every step of the way. Good results!
Dr Raphael & the staff I came into contact with were extremely friendly and reassuring. I felt like a VIP each time before and after my surgery visits; although I'm quite sure all of the patients feel this way. I don't remember a follow up call but I'm quite sure they did. If my husband agrees, I love to have more liposuction. Dr Raphael and the staff there provided me with excellent care& services. [patient name]
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I felt comfortable and felt the Dr. had my best interest. He has such an amazing bedside manner.
I had family members waiting for me and I felt that someone could have informed them that the surgery was over and I was doing ok. Also, I felt that the post visit should have been with the doctor and not a nurse. I understand that he is busy working his magic, but it would have been good to see him, maybe if something was wrong he could have picked up on it. Overall my experience was good and I think I had a great doctor and the staff was great as well. Especially Katherine she really made me feel at ease. Dr Raphael is the kindest man, and very reassuring as well.
Every single person is extremely friendly , professional , and Dr. Raphael is the nicest, kindness physician I’ve ever met! The office is beautiful, and I’m a returning patient for surgery with Dr. Raph. I have many friends trying to sell me on their “ GREAT” doctors in DALLAS. Woooooo. I do not care, I trust and love Dr. R.
Dr Raphael came highly recommended by a close friend’s friend who has had several procedures as well as a physician that I work with who’s wife utilized Dr. Raphael’s services. I read his reviews & visited the website multiple times. I researched several plastic surgeons; however I kept coming back to Dr Raphael. After my then fiancé (husband at time of surgery) was assured that he could perform the service we wanted along with recommendations, we scheduled the surgery....6 months out. Although I know that my husband loves me unconditionally & would have rather me not have the surgery; he is very pleased with the outcome & so am I![name].
Informative, to the point, listed pros and cons, down to earth staff, great surgeon that is kind and a highly talented artist. He enjoys his work and it shows. Very knowledgeable staff.
It appears very natural. Removed years off my appearance without appearing over done. The end result is natural and superior to any I have ever seen. My hair dresser said people ask her all the time if she knew of a doctor for this procedure. She has seen many and would not recommend anyone. She was overwhelmed with my result and asked for your contact information. I am more than happy to share with anyone that I ask!
Look much better! Great Doctor.. excellent bedside manner Nurses were very attentive and professional.Explained everything well!Returned after 19 years for this surger, and very satisfied!
It was my third time going back. Dr. Raphael shows he truly cared about my outcome. He was a good listener and knew how to answer my questions thoroughly and with emphasis in what I really wanted targeted. I recommended my aunt to have breast augmentation with him and she also loved the experience. Overall 10 out of 10. If I ever know anyone needing a plastic surgeon I will be sure to recommend him and his great staff. His main nurse Catherine Walker is amazing, charming and caring as well. Amazing experience.
Dr Raphael makes me feel comfortable through the whole process. He is a great and professional doctor!! The anesthesiologist also did a great job as well as the nurses. Overall service is great!! Thank you. I have a perfect tummy after 4 c-section in 29 years!!!
Catherine and Dr. Raphael made me feel comfortable and relieved my fears. This office has been highly recommended. I have also had great experiences with all staff during all medspa appointments and procedures. I am confident in my selection of Dr. Raphael performing my Mommy Makeover.
Love the results...have a tiny bit of tweaking that I'll bring up at my 3-month visit. Everyone in the practice was accommodating and friendly, and they made me feel like I mattered and was not just a number. I would recommend Dr. Raphael to anyone looking for an improvement, and have done so several times.
Peter Raphael Md is one of the most highly qualified Plastic Surgeons in the United Stattes, his expertise is outstanding as is his understanding of patient needs.. His staff is caring and knowledgable. The follow up and care I recieved far exceeded my expecatations. Dr Raphael is amoung the best and the brightest!
Felt very comfortable. Left with no questions!
Dr.Raphael bedside manner is wonderful and caring for his patient . He did a GREAT Job! Thank you ! . Everything was done professionally. No complaints whatsoever.
I was very impressed with the abundance of before and after photos. Entire staff was welcoming and beyond friendly. I have already told numerous people about my awesome, life changing experience. Thanks!
I came in for my consultation and was very pleased and impressed with the staff and Dr. Raphael. He was professional, warm and answered all of my questions. I went home to discuss with my husband and scheduled the surgeries (liposuction and breast replacement and augmentation) the following morning. I have already recommended Dr. Raphael to 2 friends of mine. He came highly recommended to me by my doctors office and I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and ability to make me feel comfortable with the procedures I am having.
Dr. Raphael and staff are amazing.
I was very nervous about the procedure before going to the appointment, but after meeting with Dr. Raphael, he made me feel very comfortable, and provided me with all the information I needed, as well as before and after pictures. After speaking with him and seeing all the before and after pictures, i had no doubt that he is the Surgeon I'll be using for my surgery. He does an amazing job.
Confidence with highly Satisfied
Overall staff were competent, helpful and nice The best thing was the reconstruction of my stomach and loss of fat
A very simple and straightforward office, doctor and overall experience. I lived the almost immediate results that I achieved after surgery.
He was a good listener, and took his time to guide me right!!
I just felt that the dr , while nice and friendly, did not offer any suggestions or specifics about the procedure.
I love and trust Dr Raphael. He listens to my concerns and is conservative when I ask him to be subtle with the procedure. The fact that his staff has been with him so long and adores him says so much.
Dr. Rafael made us feel very comfortable during the exam and answered all of our questions. Pleasant experience
Everyone was friendly and heloful
I work for a cosmetic surgeon but after meeting everyone in Dr Rafaels office I saw what a REAL plastic surgeons office does things. They all were happy, knowledgeable, kept me well informed and the results are spectacular. I had breast augmentation that has made both my husband and I very happy.I also has a tummy tuck to remove excess skin only and it has been life changing, I no longer have to be embarrassed or hide myself. I also had an arm lift and no longer need to only wear long sleeves!!!
As I have visited many surgeons recently; none of them had many before/after pics. As I am a product of a botched surgery, I did not want that to happen again. Dr. Raphael and his staff had an abundance of information and pics. I became fully confident that I scheduled immediately.
Amazing staff! Amazing process! AMAZING RESULTS!!!
I had an issue with my breast aug recovery emailed them twice about it with pics and never got a response back.
My outcome was very similar to the photo shop pictures that were provided to me. They set realistic expectations as to what to expect. . As a repeat client of Dr. Raphael, I was highly satisfied with the multiple procedures he executed on me. My scars are minimal and everything has healed nicely. He has an eye for beauty and will return to him for any further procedures.
I live 2 hours away and have the same services available. I also work in the medical profession. Dr. Rafael and his team were highly recommended so I ventured into his facility and was not disappointed. I looked at everything from the staff that greeted us to cleanliness, professionalism, knowledge base, post op care, etc. I felt comfortable and cared for throughout. There was a thread that ran through all of the staff that made me as a patient and not a caregiver feel cared for. Never rushed, never a problem, always first. Thank you.
Very smooth and professional surgery. It has allowed me to have the appearance I was seeking .
Dr. Raphael is the best in the Industry.I wouldn’t trust anyone else to perform my surgery. The quality of the outcome .Dr. Raphael’s bedside manner.
I have been to Dr Raphael in the past and was highly pleased with his services!
Friendliness of the staff and the doctor
The surgeon and coordinator were very friendly and answered all my questions and put me at ease, I will get my procedure done here.
Full information was given and concern for positive outcome was obvious the cosmetic change was just right...not too much change but refreshing
Dr Ralphael and his staff were 100 percent kind, informative and knowledgeable about what I wanted. I had no complications or worries from the time I initation for my surgery, my wonderful nurse who assisted me after surgery, until my second appt afterward. Great doctor, Great staff I love the way my clothes fit now. No more tugging or tight support garments. Totally satisfied
His credentials, experience & bedside manner
Great experience. I have used Dr. Raphael several times and have always been happy.
Everyone at Dr. Raphael’s office goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable, including Dr. Raphael. He has done all of my procedures and will continue to do so. I appreciate that he has kept the same staff since my first visit to him in 1999Catherine, Lori and Debi are all wonderful! His bed side manner is top notch. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient!
Honest, knowledgeable interactions with everyone at the practice. Staff told me specifics regarding the surgeries they had. Very helpful. Calm, non-judging atmosphere helped with the jitters! Ha!
I felt so comfortable with Dr. Raphael and his staff. I'm so excited to get my surgery done and tell the world how awesome you guys are!
Dr Raphael listened carefully to what I wanted to accomplish with the surgery and delivered exceptionally on my needs. I have gotten rave reviews from my friends on the quality of his work, I am very happy. Post surgical results, the improvement in my appearance with a very natural look.
The ladies there do not look overdone. My friend who recommended Dr. Raphael is very satisfied. Dr. Raphael seems very experienced and down to earth.
I would say the single best thing has to be the results! They are truly increadable! . I had never been under full anesthesia and was quit nevous about the process. Not only was I put at ease but I felt very confident in the process. I loved all of the staff that I came in contact with and I absolutely love my results! I will be back for my mommy makeover!
Just kept me calm and informed. Dr Raphael is just super informative very nice and this was my 2nd surgery with him and I just love the way he handles things. A high class establishment all the way! Do plan on going back for something else!!!
Dr. Raphael and staff provide a safe, informative, supportive and friendly environment. Dr. Raphael is an artist w/ his procedures. I am very happy with the work he has done on me. It has given me self-confidence. I actually feel pretty, attractive
Very friendly staff. The flow of the consult was ideal and Dr. Rafael was easy to talk to.
Dr Raphael is very kind and honest. I don't believe he would do a surgery if he didn't feel that it would in any way not be benifical or for lack of a better phrase something that would be over the top. He stands by his work and has always been brutally honest with me. I believe that he really likes what he does and he's is good at it. Dr Raphael has a great team that has been with him for a very long time that speaks Volumes to me.. They are efficient and respectful and seem happy to be at the office. This is just a place that makes you feel like what ever the problem they will come up with a solution to fix it. I had a breast saline implant replaced with silicone a few years ago. For what ever reason over the years they developed a lot of saging skin under both breasts. Whether is just my particular body or the fact that I do work out and have very strong chest muscles added with low elsaticity in my skin. They were less than desirable. After consulting with dr Raphael he simply said I agree and schedule a time and I'll take care of it. That he did! I am one week post op a breast lift. And very confidant that my new chest will be everything I had expected.
Dr. Raphael and his staff are all so wonderful, respectful, professional and kind. We never felt judged or mis-guided in any way. My son absolutely loves Dr. Raphael and is so pleased with how his chest looks. We are forever in his debt for this new lease on life! [My son's] confidence has increased. He is so much less dysphoric and happier. He said to me, Mom, I feel so free!
I was familiar with Dr. Raphael through others who had used him. He did not disappointment me. His easy manner and attention put me at ease. I cannot use general anesthesia and he was able to work with me. The assistants I spoke with were very friendly and also put me at ease.
I am a Registered Nurse & customer service means a lot to me. From the time I walked into the facility, the staff were inviting & welcoming. The wait time was phenomenal. The consultation with Leslie & Dr Raphael was awesome....I really enjoyed meeting them. Dr Raphael came highly recommend by a physician, [provider name], that I work with & knows him personally. I am looking to scheduling my procedures in February with him!
I really loved the attentiveness of all the stuff members at the American Institute for plastic surgery not to mention dr. Peter Raphael is extraordinary work he made me feel like a new person or shall I say gave me the birth of my own self and now so complete thank you guys at American Institute for plastic surgery the experience was a memory I will have for a lifetime
Dr Raphael was the best surgeon that I could have ever asked for! I highly recommend him to friends & family! I will definitely use him again in the future! . Not happy with the hotel nurse that took care of me after my surgery. She was not available when I woke up & was disappointed that I had to pay for this when I could have been at home w family to take care of me instead. Very very disappointed!
Every single person I've had interaction or communication with has been absolutely wonderful! So friendly and inviting and I could have asked for better or more for such an intimate and emotional decision/procedure/experience! Thank you AI4P!!! Y'all rock!
Love Dr Rapheal such a great surgeon and perfect bed side manor Was very easy and painless
I never felt nervous about the experience at all. Dr. Raphael always made me feel completely confident in what he would be doing from the moment he explained the procedures that would best fit my needs. The staff that was communicating with me were terrific and explained everything very well; everyone was so kind! I highly recommend the overnight care and would do it again (Lori!!!) if returning for another procedure. I have already given out Dr. Raphael's name several times and will continue to do! I have also returned for Botox (Lori again!!!) and plan to come back for my fillers. If I need any surgery procedures in the future there is no doubt that I will return to Dr. Raphael. The results are BEAUTIFUL! I look absolutely natural and look like myself. He also keeps me from going overboard whenever I talk about doing something too extreme. He treats women like they are lovely. He is such a wonderful and kind man; a pleasure to be around.
I had used Dr. Raphael before and was completely satisfied. He is the only doctor for me for cosmetic surgery. He is the best. I look better.
Extremely friendly and polite with a skilled surgeon that was highly recommended.
Very friendly staff and very clean facility. The surgeon was wonderful at suggesting other procedures to consider . . . I felt very confident in his vision.
I came in with a friend of mine who has had multiple procedures done as well as augmentation and i felt very comfortable knowinghis history and just arond him in general
The entire staff was highly supportive and made sure all questions were answered. The nurse even stayed a minute late to show me more before and after pictures. She was like a best friend at the appointment with you. I have several friends that have had procedures done by Dr Raphael and all were extremely satisfied. Dr Raphael was very friendly and approachable.
When I drove up I figured the office would be snobby but I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone was friendly and eager to help. Loved my experience and will definitely be back if I have any more procedures. The lady that brought the boobs in the room was the sweetest and she made us laugh and relax about everything.
Friendly staff, clean facility, and skilled surgeon The nurse was really funny and sweet made me feel at ease.
Was told I have an umbilical hernia and I DO NOT.
The doctor was upfront and knowledgsble
I was made comfortable discussing an uncomfortable topic. All of my issues were addressed and resolved promptly . The surgeon and staff conveyed genuine concern and care. Bladder issues have resolved. Personal concerns of my body image have resolved. I'm comfortable and I feel confident .
100 % satisfied with this experience from start to finish!!!!!!!!!! Dr. Raphael and his staff are the epitome of medical professionalism. Thank you for making me feel better about myself!!!! Sorry I waited so long to make the decision:) This procedure has made me feel so much better about my body image.
I USED DR RAPHAEL FOR MY BREAST LIFT IN 2001 AND HE WAS AWESOME!! I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER, I AM COMPLETELY CONFIDENT IN HIS WORK!!
Dr Raphael and his staff are the only ones in their industry that I put 100% in. I fly to Plano from 1,000 miles away to see them! Natural results
The surgeons expertise. I think he is VERY busy which would normally make me shop around but he nails it every time . I don't feel like me remembers me when I am there for post op but the nurses help him. Results r more important to me than remembering my name and what I had done.
I had very good experience talking with the doctor
Wait time and time spent in actual consulatation and also wait time for imaging photos and hearing back from someone. Surgeon was nice but everyone else makes you feel like just a number/ cattle call
I have had a tummy tuck, arm lift, breast lift and implants. Love Dr. Raphael, Laurie and Debbie. Even though I have had complications from the second surgery...they have been there and supported me through the process. Planning on have a leg,thigh and butt lift in August.
Dr Raphael was amazing along with all staff members prior, during and after my surgery. It was a very comfortable expierence
Dr. Raphael is one of the most compassionate and talented surgeons I have met. He provides comprehensive care for his patients. His nurses, Lori and Debbie, are amazing as well- kind, attentive and very knowledgeable. Jim is one of the few people that can administer anesthesia and I have no adverse side effects. An amazing group of people who truly care for their patients! Reduces my pain and swelling
Dr.Raphael is an incredible doctor with a very caring bed-side manner. He explained everything in great detail. I have seen him for 3 seperate surgeries, and I am thrilled with the results !!! He is AWESOME !!! His staff is outstanding !!! There is just no other word to describe his entire office and operations !!! I do recommend him to everyone that I know !!! Thank God for people like him and his wonderful caring staff !!!!!!!!!
Dr Raphael makes you are the only one having surgery . He makes me feel at ease and explains everything thoroughly. His anesthesiologist , Jim is also very reassuring. Dr Raphael and his medical team are the best. I highly recommend them to my family and friends!! Dr Raphael takes time to listen to every patients needs and explains the procedure giving you a sense of confidence and reassurance
The coordinator was welcoming at reviewing my needs, very knowledgeable and thorough in reviewing all my options.The pictures helped support the right decision process for my needs/likes.The Dr. and friendly staff cater to your voiced needs/likes without leaving you with any upselling surgery feeling. And most importantly, Dr. Raphael's carisma and amazing track record makes you feel you arrived to the right hands. No need to go anywhere else.
I think Dr Raphael is a gifted artist. He doesn't over do the procedure. My friends comment that I always look good or better as I age but I never look as if I had any surgery done. I will not go to anyone else. he's the best!!
Everyone was very friendly and open to hearing about my concerns and expectations. I really could tell why they are leaders in gender conformation surgeries. Dr. Raphael is the nicest man and was very good with language (referring to me as male and using my pronouns). All of the appointments were informative and helpful. The guidelines for post operative care were very specific and beneficial. I was completely comfortable before, during, and after the surgery. I was very warm with the blanket and the entire experience was wonderful. I had virtually no pain, and I am very pleased with the results. Overall, the best experience I've had in a medical facility. Thank you so much.
I was Highly Satisfied with my experience. Due to special scaring issues and recovery time I have decided it would be best to wait until after summer to have my surgery. The only part of my visit that could have been better was initial wait time.
Very attentive. Very knowledgable. Took very good care of me
I was amazed during my consultation that they were able to read my mind and know exactly what my insecurities were. Dr. Raphael also did a thorough exam and shared with me other issues and concerns from my breathing due to a broken nose and having no cartlidge. He was very clear and answered all my questions. If I ever had a concern after the procedure, the staff was quick to get back to me and answer all questions. I can now breathe at night, and am no longer insecure of my nose when I go out in public. Thank you!
I had old implants removed, new put in and a breast lift. I didn't have major extra skin, so I would consider it a minor, lollipop lift. I have a crease of extra skin under both brewers and my nipples are different. This is 6 months later so I'm confident nothing else is drastically changing. I've been to the office about 5 different times post op to see Dr Raphael and have always voiced my concerns. While he was so helpful and took his time during consult, I feel like the post op are a strategically planned task to just get you out of the office. He's still very nice, but when I point out he just quickly says how great it looks, still healing, it's not an issue. Literally every time I've left the room, I have a feeling of what just happened?!?" Like I just got hustled out of the room. It's definitely well practiced. "
Everyone was friendly respectful and Dr Rapahel was so reassuring.everyone I came into contact with 100% helpful and kind.From Chelsea to mickey to diane and to debbie and to raphael the surgical nurse anaesthesiologist to the photographer to Cindy at the surgical side.wonderful and my kid is so happy with the result
Dr. Rapheal and his whole staff made me feel comfortable and excited about my procedure. I always felt great when I left because of the friendliness of the staff and everyone's so helpful. They really took care of me. I feel beautiful again.
Leslie as well as the main nurse that helped me (feel terrible I'm forgetting her name) were amazing. They both were so personable and caring. Everyone was great and Dr. Raphael was so nice he made me feel at ease before surgery. Every time I have emailed or called Leslie after surgery she has been nothing but phenomenal.
I love all my surgeries. I have minimal to no scarring and healed quickly. I love my body again
I was treated with such a great amount of respect. From the nurses to the surgeon, every one was so nice. They were very reassuring and answered all questions. It was my first surgery and I will be back to Dr. Raphael in the future.
I had a BBL as well and I don't see much of a difference. I would have liked it bigger and more plump it's still flat in some places. For the price I paid I would have liked exactly what I was asking for. I have an follow up appointment on the 13th but I'm not sure if anything can be done.
Love Dr Raphael! I feel is kindness. The staff is amazing! Very good people
Some portions of liposuction were satisfactory some areas that I wanted prioritized were not.
I was not able to communicate with Dr. Raphael before or after my surgery due to his over booked schedule
I'm more positive and have a whole difference outlook on life I'm so happy how my results are coming thru . Everyone was very friendly Dr Raphael Was very polite and funny he's a great doctor makes you feel comfortable and I felt safe under the knife with him so I will definitely go back if I ever need another procedure our recommended Dr Raphael
Friendly staff, Dr. Raphael is best surgeon around! Beautiful office. No wait time!
I saw another provider previous to this visit, they were rude and limited times to be seen. I was referred to this doctor by my aunt. They had great availability for the consultation as well for the surgery. Waiting time was short and the doctor was great. Can't wait for my procedure to happen.
Felt rushed, the coordinators/assistants are not as professional as they should be, they are not quick responding to emails and sometimes takes weeks until they respond- communication and getting a hold of the doctors assistants is not up to par as far as my expectations.
The Dr was patient, caring and listened. His staff is very professional and informative. Made me feel special not a number or just out for my money. I feel better about myself and the way I look and I get better interaction with strangers
I loved the staff! Being a single mother they have worked with me beyond all expectations making it easy for me to come in and everything else. Great service and love the work! Can't wait for the surgery!
This was the most wonderful experience and I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Raphael and his team.
Dr. Raphael and his staff were all very kind, professional and helpful. They treated my wife and I very well, answered all my questions, and my surgery results are excellent.
Felt very comfortable with consultant and surgeon. Beautiful facility and the front office staff had smiles on their faces and seemed very relaxed. My daughter had a procedure by Dr. Raphael and it turn out perfect. The staff was very accomodating and Dr. Raphael was very caring. I can not wait to schedule my surgery with Dr. Raphael.
I feel comfortable and confident again. . Dr. Raphael is an amazing surgeon. He makes you feel like the most important patient of his day. He takes time getting to know his patients so that he can truly understand what their goals are. I am beyond thrilled with my results.
From my first visit until today I Had a fabulous experience with each person in the practice and their knowledge of the procedure and what to expect, flexibility on everything, respect and knidness shown to me. I am in healthcare and am very picky. This was great!
Great natural looking results. Dr.Raphael is very professional and extremely well mannered and I am very happy with the natural results.
For me, the best thing about the procedure and experience was that I was able to find a surgeon with excellent experience at doing it as well as a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in which to have it done. . From the very beginning of the process, everyone I encountered in the facility was friendly and knowledgeable. I never once felt judged or uncomfortable with anyone I encountered, even though my particular procedure isn't a typical one. Because I was coming from out of town and having to work around my full time job schedule and my wife's as well, the staff was incredibly flexible and accommodating with scheduling the surgery as well as the pre and post op appointments to fit our needs and save us time and money. I have been pleased with the result of my surgery so far as well. I am very impressed with the facility and would recommend it to others.
The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The wait time was minimal. They created a warm, hospitable environment that made me feel very comfortable and at ease.
The post-op experience was very poor. It was recorded. Information was given by Debbie then later on the phone was completely different that what she said in the office. She talks very quickly, and there are NO WRITTEN DIRECTIONS ON THIS VERY IMPORTANT AFTER-CARE WITH THE TAPE, STERI-STRIPS, THE DIRECTION OF THE TAPE, THE PRESSURE SHIRT, ETC.! She is very fast-talking with this information. I feel that Dr. Raphael should be there initially to look at the patient. We were not happy with that at all. If Dr. Raphael could here how fast she talks to the patients and how quickly the info is given to them, I do not think that would make him happy at all. I was told my son should come back in a month. When we were leaving, Debbie says he did not need to come back for 3-4 months, or at all. What? Why do your post-op directions contradict what she says? Her directions were NOT clear, as there are too many variables that can happen. An explanation of what COULD happen should this not be right, etc., should also be available. Patients should also be given a visual print-out of what a healed chest should be looking like at certain points in next coming months. She seems so used to doing her speech that she leaving out the most important people--the patients! For this reason and this reason only, I would NOT recommend this practice to others. Some some of protocol should be followed for ALL patients. What would it hurt to have an online power point for after-surgery care? It needs to be standard, without her spewing out the words rapid-fire. That was most unpleasant and not at all helpful. If we would not have recorded it, we would have had to call back countless more times than we already did!
I just like the staff, especially Leslie O'Connell
The staff was very was very polite and knowledgeable. The doctor was very direct on what he noticed, and believed he could do for me. I was very satisfied with how attentive everyone was.
The staff is very sweet as well as Dr. Raphael.. I feel very comfortable having the surgery done in his hands!!
How Dr Rapael raised my comfort level. Dr. Peter Raphael made me feel very much at ease, as did Catherine at my initial visit. They were both very easy to communicate my needs to, and Dr Raphael even helped me understand how rewarding my procedure would be. I was nervous about having the procedure done prior to my initial visit, but ater that visit, it was a a very easy choice to make. Had I known how uncomplicated the procedure was, how professional Dr Raphael and his staff were, I would have done the procrdure years ago. If I watn something else done I will certainly not hesitate to have Dr. Raphael do it. I feel incredible!
I was immediately made comfortable. My nervousness was understood and everyone worked as a team with me.
The experience was less painful than I thought. Highly professional staff. I would love to work there!!!!
Wonderful staff that was very kind and understanding. Dr. Raphael is an amazing person and phenomenal surgeon. His staff is very knowledgeable. His office is beautiful and the surgery center is right there!
Dr. Raphael and his staff are extremely professional and skillful at what they do. I felt comfortable and well-informed during the consultation. I am thankful for the help and information that was provided to me.
WASTE OF MY TIME
Very professional and yet I didn't feel like I was in a clinical setting. Everyone was very personable and welcoming. I also noticed that they all seemed to love their jobs. That makes me much more comfortable, especially in a medical enviroment.
I was very satisfied with the way the staff and Dr Raphael communicated to me with everything, from the pre op to the recovery. The anesthesiologist called the night before and was very specific on how to take my meds prior and did everything possible to prevent nausea.Dr Raphael explains everything he is going to do and I have been very pleased with the results.I have been to other plastic surgeon and have regretted it. Dr Raphael will be the only one who ever does any surgery on me! I was very happy with the results of my surgery. His staff are warm and caring and answers all of my questions. His anesthesiologist called the night before and id everything possible to prevent nausea. The preop instructions are clear and written down. Nurses called to check on me. I have total confidence in Dr Raphael's skill as a surgeon Everything he touches looks beautiful. I will never have another surgeon do procedures on me. He is the best!
Dr. Raphael was wonderful as always. He made me very comfortable. The surgery results are wonderful. I am so happy. The surgery staff was very kind. The post op nurse was the best. Overall the entire staff was fabulous. I finally am the woman on the outside that I have always been on the inside. Thank you.
My results speak for them self. My surgeon was excellent.
Honesty and trust
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very prompt responses and very informative.
Unable to provide post surgery pictures or patient references.
They took the time to hear about my concerns and Dr Dulin was very understanding and knowledgeable
Dr. Raphael really did make me feel comfortable about the surgery. He answered all the questions I asked and explained them thoroughly. Leslie was the nurse and she was very nice and very helpful. She went above and beyond to set up my surgery even though they were booked. She has been in contact with me almost daily helping me get everything in order and make sure all of the medications I take daily are ok to continue before surgery. The staff there was beyond nice I got there and hour early and they still managed to get me in with no problems. Very pleased
The staff is friendly and genuine about caring for me and my goals. They have been helpful and informative, have worked with me in ways that really count and I'm very excited about my surgery happening! I've seen Dr. Raphaels work and am pleased with his results. I hope I see the same for myself.
Better knowledge of final would have been helpful. I ended up smaller than desired. Disappointed in that, but the work was excellent. Suggest better before and after representation. Hard to know what to expect...
There was a lot of waiting time. I was informed they were very busy and I understood.
Doctor & nurses are wonderful! Especially Dr Rapheal & Nurse Debbie Smith RN & Lori Webb RN. Rest of staff is great too. Office is run very professionally & is aesthetically pleasing.
The doctor was very nice he made me feel comfortable.
Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. I got a good vibe from everyone I interacted with.
they did not make me feel uncomfortable, felt very warm and welcoming wasn't so serious and to the point, jokes where made im overall excited about my procedure within the next two weeks.
Dr. Raphael has already done 2 separate operations on me and I am so ssatify that I'm coming back for a third operation.He is a Master level on his craft.I feel very lucky to be his patient and will never consider any other doctor.In my opion he is the BEST!
As a Female to male transgender, my breasts were inhibiting my ability to live my life fully. Now, I can live a better life. . All of the staff was great and did not confront me about my gender. The recovery was great and the care was wonderful. I loved my experience and would do it again in a heartbeat.
The staff was very nice, and answered all my questions. The surgeon made me feel so comfortable and also answered all my questions. I was shown a portfolio of previous patients results. They gave me so many details regarding my surgery. I learned so much more than I expected. The consult could not have gone any better.
Dr Raphel's personality! The comfort it brought me was truly a blessing!!! My over all experience was amazing!! I'm extremely happy with my results!! Dr Raphael personality was warming & comforting!! As scared to death of any surgery that I am, I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Raphael!! His staff was on point! They were all friendly & helpful! You can tell that they love their job & was passionate about it!!! I highly recommend Dr. Raphael!! I love Dr Raphael & his staff!!!!
I went in for a breast augmentation and lift consultation and was made very comfortable by all the staff. The nurse can in and spoke with me before the Dr came in and talked to me about the process. He came in and went over everything with me and made me feel so comfortable and about the procedure .
My Son was treated with the upmost respect, we all were. Would highly recommend. Thank you to Dr. Raphael and his Team!
Dr. Peter Raphael is an amazing surgeon. His humbleness shines through not only him but his work. I have over 25 thousand follwers on my instagram social media account and many have messaged me and told me that they have changed their mind about their initial surgeon and have decided to go with Raphael. My results are not only amazing but Dr. Raphael is an artist and my chest was his canvas. I'm absolutely and undoubtedly so glad I chose Raphael and the American institute for plastic surgery. The single best thing about this surgical procedure is that it allowed me to finally be free. I'm a female to male transgender and freedom is something that means the entire world to us when we can finally be set free of the weight we have on our chests" literally and metaphorically. Dr. Raphael saved my life and allowed me to have a new outlook on life. "
I thought the surgeon was very nice and he made me feel very comfortable with all of my questions. Also Catherine was very nice and helpful. I look forward to my surgery and how it is going to change my body.
Friendly, knowledgable staff. Professional office. Good doctor & nurses. Aesthetically pleasing environment.
Staff is great and Dr Pete has provided two surgerys in the past, I stick with what works- thank you
I had a wonderfully positive experience with Dr. Raphael and his staff. Everyone was kind, courteous, and polite through the whole process. Everything was explained to me in great detail, and any questions I had were promptly and expertly answered. All staff members took great care to use my preferred name and pronouns, which meant a lot to me. I would absolutely go to Dr. Raphael again if I needed another procedure. As a trans person, this procedure has made my life so much better. I no longer have to bind my chest for 8+ hours every day, dealing with discomfort and chafing. I no longer have to hide my chest, because I have the chest I want. I can now go shirtless without it being a big deal. I'm so much happier after my procedure.
My lower face lift was not successful and I still have the laxity in the skin around my chin and jawline that was why I was doing the procedure in the first place.
Having the opportunity to have a double mastectomy has changed my life tremendously. I couldn't be happier with the results! Being trans* and having experienced some though experiences in health facilities had me feeling quite nervous prior to my first visit. I, since have visited several times for my after surgery check up and I couldn't be more comfortable seeing the friendly staff, and Dr. Raphael treating me like a friend. . The kind of service the staff and Dr. Raphael provided were nothing less than professional. I went in quite nervous about the procedure I was getting done, and I left there with all my questions answered and feeling like they really cared for me as a patient. I often recommend this team to any one wanting to have a double mastectomy.
Dr. Raphael's work speaks for itself. He is a highly competent surgeon who is well known in the trans community. The office staff are very trans friendly and the environment is friendly. The patient coordinator is knowledgeable and friendly as well. Dr. Raphael's entire team works well together and one gets the sense that they are happy to help you feel better about yourself. The environment is upbeat and the staff seem genuinely happy in their jobs which makes the environments so much more pleasant. Dr. Raphael established rapport immediately with me and assured me that he could help me have the chest I desired. He delivered which was no small feat considering I was sporting DD's with lots of stretch marks. I am quite pleased with the end result. He is an artist! He clearly loves what he does and cares about his patients. The cost of the service was reasonable as well as there was no hospital stay involved. The follow up care was excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Raphael for his surgical and interpersonal skills as a provider. His whole team functions well and I do believe this reflects his leadership and values. It was important to me to feel comfortable in the setting in which I was receiving services as not all the providers I contacted were comfortable with trans people. The surgeons I'd contacted did perform top surgery but none were as competent and confident as Dr. Raphael. Dr. Raphael's surgical skills are the best of any surgeon I've seen and his interpersonal skills put him head and shoulders above the rest. It is easy to see why people travel to see him. I drove from Houston to see him and would do it again. It's very clear that Dr. Raphael has a great working relationship with his team and his patient coordinator particularly. People are treated kindly and with respect. Other offices I contacted seemed uncomfortable with trans people even though they advertised as performing the service I sought. I highly recommend Dr. Raphael and his team.
Post op info was contradictory amongst shared docs & positioning of nipples is considerably & noticeably unnatural.
Very caring and professional staff. They seems genuinely happy to have me as their patient.
I have used this dr several times. The dr and staff is always so friendly and helpful.
The surgeon and the nurse were great and informative. It was a great environment And I felt very confident in their abilities
I had a wonderful, personal Experience.
All staff was helpful and informative and my results were excellent. I am more then pleased with all aspects of my experience
Everyone is very helpful and freindly. They also stayed on top of things and stayed in constant contact. Their response time is amazing!
All the staff members were helpful and friendly. They provided all the informational materials I needed to make my decision and how to prepare for the procedure. I felt comfortable.
The staff I was in contact with during my consultation (over e-mail) and during my scheduling was great and friendly and were able to answer all questions I had. Despite the consultation and scheduling being done over e-mail, I never had to wait more than a business day to receive a response to my e-mails, even though I would often take more than a couple days to respond.
I had a very specific window of time to schedule surgery due to work and travel constrictions, and the care coordinator was very helpful in making sure that things could be arranged to fit my needs. I am looking forward to my surgery, and have heard nothing but good things about Dr. Raphael.
Dr Raphael was great. He was understanding, honest, seemed to really pay attention and care what I was saying. I didn't feel rushed during consult. I didn't schedule before leaving but did call the next day to schedule my appointment which is in less than a month.
I am an FTM transender man. This surgery has been a saving grace. It has changed my everyday life in every way. All of the staff was extremely helpful and respectful. The results of my surgery were excellent.
I was really pleased with the assistant Leslie. She was very informative and brought relief to me about concerns based on her very own experience with surgery. I also appreciate the realness of the consultation on what to expect and did not feel forced into anything. I like the way the Dr. showed his genuineness in caring about what I want done as far as surgery goes.
The results are better than I could have even let myself imagine. The bedside manner of all employees was amazing! I've worked in the field and it still surprised me. Beyond amazing staff and reasonable prices.
It has given me the confidence I need to live my life to the fullest. The staff were absolutely profession as well as calm and calming (my mother was worried about my procedure). Everyone was amazing. The facility was clean, well organized and nicely decorated. Honestly, the only negative thing I could possibly say was wait time was a bit long the first day. Beyond that everything was above and beyond what I expected.
As with any major surgery, the foremost concern is preparation for complications and prevention of infection. Neither complication nor infection were experienced. Of course, repairing my congenital defect with total succes was the single best thing. I have received multiple services including laser/IPL hair removal, minor surgery, and major surgery. I am extremely satisfied with all outcomes. Dr. Raphael and staff are caring and highly skilled medical professionals.
Very few in the world could do what Dr Rafael does. Debbie & Dr Rafael are so amazing. They are both so knowledgeable, caring, supportive & have a great bedside manner. Dr Rafael does awesome work!
Love the doctor, confidence in a s uccessful procedue, price is fair.Staff was sooooo nice!
The fact that I can look at myself and see me. I have never felt more comfortable with my body and the confidence boost is out of this world. Dr Peter Raphael and his whole office was perfect down to a T. With his nice bed side manner and the understanding of how important this procedure was to myself and the there warms my heart and he will always be my recommendation to others. I could not be more happy with how well I was taken care of and my results. Thank you dr Raphael and know you are very well respected all over the United States.
The entire procedure was equally amazing. I was highly satisfied because the staff was amazing and made me feel very very comfortable and my results were incredible
I love the way my body looks. Dr. Raphael's bedside manner was amazing he was funny and I really enjoyed his time and the results of my operation were amazing
Just everyone was kind and I would love to keep coming there.
I was made to feel incredibly comfortable during my stay and everyone I spoke with was very very nice and professional.
Dr Raphael made me feel very at ease. He was comforting, kind, and understanding. I felt confident I was in good hands with this highly trained & professional physcian.His senior patient consultant, Catherine , was also very kind and thorough. I am still waiting to hear if the procedure will be coverd my my insurance.
Dr Harris has done several procedures for me and they have always turned out simply amazing. I can't imagine going to anyone else!!
I really liked Dr. Raphael. He seems very knowledgable and experienced. He's been doing this a long time and keeps the same staff constant. Very nice.
Everything is the best. Dr Peter Rafael is the best , he is experienced , knowledgeable , so kind and honest , he cares about his patients like his own family and his staff are the best and very helpful , customer service is well organized and professional , Dr Rafael saved my sister's life and gave her another chance to live happily . He is an angel and we are thankful and blessed to have him in our lives .

the entire staff, including my surgeon, were all very helpful and respectful to me as a trans guy. that's very important for a place that helps a lot of transgender people. it was a very comfortable experience and I felt well-informed about the whole process the entire time.
Surgeon was very nice outgoing respectful and nurse they game a better price than what I expected made me feel safe to know I can trust them
The surgery turned out great. My wife and I were treated with RESPECT and you don't get that everywhere. The price was great ! I
The staff and doctors are respectful, competent, caring, helpful, and over all awesome!Dr Raphael has performed two major surgeries on me, FFS and GRS and both were excellent work on his part. I have scheduled breast augmentation with his office for mid July.I have also refered numerous patients to him who has be esthatic with his work.
Amazing staff and surgeon Finally in a body that I am comfortable with. Too surgery has changed myLife.
The way the whole staff treated me. They all were so nice and social making me feel very at ease and comfortable. . This was first surgery ever. Everyone receptionists, cashier, nurses, and doctors" was very social and nice. They made me feel comfortable and welcomed. I was kept informed throughout the whole procedure. I was very well taken care of and everything went by fast. I never felt uncomfortable. I would recommend Peter Raphael, MD and American Institute for Plastic Surgery's whole team to anyone looking for quality service and excellent work/results. Thank you all at American Institute for Plastic Surgery!! "
I really liked the atmosphere and people involved in the process. Everyone was kind and helpful, and the facilities were very nice. My only issues were lack of availability for dates and excessive waiting time at points.
knowledge and helpfulness of staff and surgeon
The Doctor and staff were very nice and professional just the quote was very high. I will get it done, just not here.
Miss Catherine Walker scheduled my consultation and procedure with Dr. Raphael. Miss Catherine kept in touch with me and helped me get the required paperwork for the procedure. Dr. Raphael talked to me in the consultation and explained to me what could be done to achieve what I wanted. Dr. Raphael performed the procedure and was the utmost professional. He is always very friendly and treated me like family. The staff of the surgery center were also very professional, friendly and attentive to my needs. Dr. Raphael's nurses, Miss Debbie and Miss Lori are always absolutely wonderful. Everyone of at American Institute for Plastic Surgery is wonderful. I always feel like I am going home when I go to their office.
My niple graffs are perfectly symetrical and look just right. My chest reconstruction surgery was flawless, Dr Raphael and his staff are caring professionals that made sure I was informed, listened to, and comfortable during the entire procedure.
I've had prior surgery, loved the results!! I wouldn't con cider another plastic surgeon!!
The interactions with the surgeon and staff, I felt very welcome and at ease. . Dr.Raphael, Catherine Walker, as well as the entire staff at Institute made me feel great! I was provided with knowledge, a friendly professional environment, as well as a very courteous interaction.
Love Dr.Pete, he is caring & takes great care of his patience. His team is stellar!
I was highly satisfied because the staff treated me with care and were very open regarding my questions. Dr. Raphael was so warm and sincere about what I needed to have done in order to give me the result I wanted. My fiancé was allowed to stay in during the consultation and his questions were answered as well.
Everyone was nice, they made it easy, and the price is reasonable with all costs included aside from prescriptions.
Dr. Raphael and Catherine were so nice to me. Everyone was nice and always nice to me. During my first surgery and now for the consultation.
Cat was absolutely amazing . Yes I'm going to tell everyone I know about y'all.
Very professional. And my Obgyn to whom I highly respect is the one who referred me to this practice.
Scalp scars are not flat
The person who spoke with me before the doc came in was on auto pilot, talking fast and assuming I understood what she was saying. My appt was first one of morn so no reason for it. The process was too assembly line like. Also the grout in lobby is very dirty. I'd like to see a much cleaner Lobby.
The doctor and the staff made me feel very at ease and comfortable during the consultation. I look forward to having my surgery with Dr. Raphael.
I have more confidence, with the removal of extra skin which resulted from losing a lot of weight. . I am a pharmacist by trade and have had several surgeries, as well as working in different healthcare settings. This was one of the most positive experiences I have had. The staff from the receptionist to the Dr. Raphael/Anesthesiologist were very helpful, pleasant and supportive. I am very satisfied with my results and am planning another procedure for later this year. I recommend Dr. Peter Raphael without hesitation. He is the best!
Quick scheduling and quick surgical appointment available.
HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL DOCTOR AND STAFF. EVERYONE I HAVE MET ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND CARING. I AM HIGHLY CONFIDENT IN DR. RAPHAEL'S ABILITY AND PERFORMANCE. HIS GOAL IS TO PLEASE HIS PATIENTS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH THE PROCEDURES HE HAS DONE FOR THEM. I REALLY LOVE THIS DOCTOR AND HIS WORK.
The attitude and friendliness of the staff!
They really took the time to talk with us and explain how everything would work. Very personable staff and surgeon
I had a hematoma following surgery, terrible swelling/pain that I have not seen consistent with other patients. When asked what to do about it the staff didn't give much attention/help. My nipples also look nothing like nipples
I waited for 45 min before being called back.
I was very satisfied with my experience. I trust Dr Raphael
This is my second surgery with DR. Raphael. The clinic is very modern, the staff is very professional and respectful, and DR. R's personal staff are very knowledgeable to the specifics both pre ad post op for all the proceedures that he performs. His staff as well as himself are also very non-judgmental and comfortable to be around. My personnal experience has been nothing but satisfaction. I especially appreciate the care and follow up conducted after each surgery which has been consistant and at no cost after both proceedures. If I had one complaint, I would have to say that the surgery center prior to going into the operating room was extrememly cold. Other than that, I have experienced nothing but respect since I have been DR. Raphael's patient. My personnal gratitude goes out to this surgeon.
I'm much more confidant with myself know. Everyone I came into co tact with was very nice, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Everything was perfect! Nothing negative to say at all!
Catherine was knowledgeable, helpful, and discreet.Dr Raphael managed to put me at relative ease with regards to a procedure that can't help but be terrifying.
I just felt like he tryly care about whatvi wanted and was honest in what was more covinient for me!
Felt staff was not completely honest about the recovery process up front. Knowing all patients vary in recovery process, I would have appreciated being told the worst case scenario (which was me).
Follow up scheduling was very unorganized with communicating to me whether I needed to make any additional appointments after my first post-op meeting. The first two were rescheduled due to surgery times being moved at the last minute. I didn't actually have a one week post-op appointment until almost two weeks later at which time I was seen only by the nurse on duty. The office staff overall are very pofessional, yet I feel as if there was more concern for me prior to my surgery than afterwards. I figured out on my own that I was to schedule all my post-op appointments. No comments were made to me regarding when I should be seen again or that I was to initiate the scheduling on my own.My only concern is the office to patient and inter-office communications. So far I'm satisfied with my overall experience and my surgery results.
This staff and surgeon were top notch. They treated me in such a friendly manner and really took the time to access my individual needs. I left there feeling like I was a part of their family and can not see myself going anywhere else for this procedure.
I feel very comfortable with Dr Peter. He listens to what I want and is realistic with what I desire. He speaks to me like an intelligent adult and respects that I have 100 questions. The pricing is reasonable as well.
Ive had procedures here previously, and feel they are lacking in the aftercare dept.
I just love how friendly Dr. Raphael was and his staff. He showed genuine concern and presented me with all my options. Very caring and sincere
Dr. Rapheal and Catherine are amazing. He has the best bed side manner. The whole staff is great and informative. This will be my second surgery with Dr. Rapheal. I am a repeat client.
Staff were friendly and respectful. Consultation began promptly prior to the appointment time since we arrived early.
Very helpful staff who understood type of surgery and did not make me feel bad or the need to explain myself.
Had great prep and information prior to procedure- surgeon heard what I wanted to accomplish with surgery and made suggestions for liposuction to add desired re-shaping of torso. Had been a pt of Dr Rapheal's 20yrs prior and was very pleased with surgical intervention. Great experience!!
I was shown the utmost respect by every single person starting with Angela who guided the paperwork and credit card process over the phone to the receptionist, nurses, on-call nurses, and of course Dr. Raphael. This was the first time I have ever had surgery and I am beyond happy with the total experience. Dr. Raphael is doing a service far beyond strictly medical reasons. He is changing people's lives, myself included. I walked into his office physically female and he gave me new life by removing my friends so I was able to walk out as male. I am beyond grateful for everyone at this office.
The doctor and nurse do their best to make you feel comfortable by not focusing on medical jargon when they communicate. I didnt feel rushed and was given plenty of info to look over.
I'm interested in having gender reassignment surgery and staff was very sensitive, validating, well educated in the matter. It was one of the more pleasant Doctor/medical experiences I've had.
Dr. Raphael was amazing! He understands the bodybuilding lifestyle that I lead and was able to really give me sound advice as to what I need vs. what I want plus realistic expectations after the surgery. He was so helpful and made meFeel very comfortable! I can't wait to go back and have this procedure done and know that I'm in the right hands!
The staff has been nothing but wonderful!
Felt like surgeon and staff cared especially after I consulted with.PS in Houston that did another procedure that seemed better. They took the time to review the video and address my concerns w/o putting g pressure on me to change my mind. Also bcuz surgeon honored my request to NOT do FNG and he kept my size proportional. Also my boobies look GREAT!!!!!
Some issues but still looking better over the before .
I have called 2 times after the consultation to schedule the procedure. No one has called me back with available dates.
The staff was welcoming and made the experience comfortable and almost enjoyable, given that I had never had surgery prior to this procedure. I was very nervous but they took such good care of me I had no trouble. The surgeon was phenomenal. He was engaging and comforting as well and is very good about keeping you excited, happy and involved. Overall a wonderful visit and I would certainly recommend others to see them as well.
I feel very comfortable with the doctor. I feel he has the experience to provide great results.
I have had two previous procedures at this office. Both times everyone was professional, helpful, and I felt very comfortable. I trust Doctor Raphael and I know he is a true professional when it comes to his practice. I highly recommend him all the time.
The surgeon was very friendly and explained to me how he was going to do the procedure and the healing time. The staff was amazing and very helpful.
Provided so much information took the time to explain the procedure as well as what is required answer all questions very personable
Customer Service and seeing real results
Totally different from my first consultation. The doctor was positive and not at all condescending. Dr. Raphael described what he would do, was patient and answered all questions. His whole demeanor made me feel very positive about using him for this procedure.
Surgeon was very knowledgable and super nice, I was pleased
The doctor and his assistant were very friendly and the way they explained the procedure
It was a good experience.
Dr, didn't seem to be into that morning
Dr Rapheal is a very humble man in my sight and is a true artist and a very loving and kind. A true perfectionist in his profession and I knew from the moment I met him I knew I was in great hands. An I was right. I had face, neck, brow, eye lid, lip lifts, nose job, lips augmented and implanted and chin softened and implanted. With all that I had done I had minimal bruise, with very little pain and OMG he has truly change me life with his excellent work. So much so I am having breast augmentation in November. God bless me to be put in the right hands.
The Dr and staff was very informative and pleasant. Made me feel at ease and comfortable and everything was very efficient
Felt somewhat rushed in consultation, not my experience in prior consults. Thought the procedure was overpriced, but did not compare with other physicians because I want Dr Raphael to do it. I was not shown before and after photos at consult and did not think of it until after I had left office.
Overall very good experience. Catherine and Dr. Raphel were very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable.
The staff was excellent, very friendly and informative. The doctor too is very friendly and really knows his stuff.
Doctor was very knowledgeable and thorough with his explanation of the procedures. I felt very comfortable.
Dr. Peter Raphael is friendly, funny, concerned, caring, creative, and a highly talented surgeon. Dr. Raphael's staff is also genuinely caring. I feel I have chosen the very best surgeon and practice for my procedure.
Due to a last minute sick kid. I had to bring my 2 year old with me to my appt. The staff was very quick to get us back to consult room and even pushed my appt up to help get me in and out quicker, while still giving me the important info to help me make decisions.
I'm a returning patient of Dr. Peter Raphael's. Not only is Dr. Raphael and amazing and talented surgeon, most importantly he's a great guy! His staff is amazing as well! His senior patient consultant Catherine has been with him for many years and she is amazing also! Dr. Raphael spends his time explaining any concerns or questions that you may have. He listens to you and also gives great advice. I'm extremely comfortable with Dr. Raphael. It doesn't matter if you had a procedure with him 15 years ago or 1 year ago, he always remembers you. I noticed right away the first time I had a procedure done with him that he truly cares about his patients. The first time I was ever considering a procedure I consulted with seven different surgeons before I met with Dr. Raphael and I knew right away I didn't need to look any further. My gut feeling was spot on and that is why I will continue to return to Dr. Raphael and would not consider any other surgeon for any of my future procedures. I would recommend Dr. Raphael to any friend, family member, or stranger any day of the week. I stand strongly by not only his ability as a great surgeon but his character as a person as well. I can go into my procedure 1000% knowing I am in the best hands possible. As far as I'm concerned Dr. Raphael is never allowed to retire!
Dr Raphael was an excellent surgeon for my 14 year old son. Not many will perform FTM top surgery on kids and he was genuinely understanding and caring. The surgery has made him a much happier and confident person. We had a great experience from their entire team!
I have not had my surgery yet, so I don't feel like I have enough information.
Love the results! Anesthesia was excellent! Staff very nice and helpful.
Friendly and informative Put me at ease.
I was treated with dignity and respect regarding my choice of procedure. The staff were very friendly and professional hand that made me feel comfortable even though I was a bit nervous.
I really felt comfortable. It made me even more excited about my breast augmentation!
The staff was friend in using the correct gender pronouns
The doctor and consultant made me feel comfortable and was extremely professional! Can't wait to come back to him for my procedure! Just an amazing experience. Love this palace already!
I was extremely satisfied with the kindness and knowledge of the entire staff as well as Dr Raphael and my anesthesiologist. I will most definitely be returning for future procedures and I am recommending my friends choose this medical office for surgery or any cosmetic needs. Thank you Very much!
excellent staff, facility and Dr. Rapheal was fantastic.
Dr. Raphael was helpful and understood my needs. plan or having a few surgery with him.
Dr. Raphael made me feel very comfortable and the room was set up like a living room, which made it even more comfortable. However, I was a little disappointed in the fact that Dr. Raphael did not take the time to use a pen and mark the areas he was going to be operating on. He didn't explain or go over the method he would be using or give me details regarding the cost/benefit ratio of the procedure. He also did not mention his success rate with the procedure I would be doing or the potential complications I could face. Furthermore, I wish he would talk about the research behind the procedure and the success rate. All in all, he is the only plastic surgeon that made me feel very comfortable in my own skin. I just wish he went more in depth regarding my procedure so that I could feel more confident in his work ethic.
The knowledge, kindness and professionalism of Dr. Rafeal. The staff was also caring.
I'm very happy with my surgery
Great outcome. Friendly staff. Efficient workplace.
Dr Raphael was the best. The staff was amazing. They even answered questions via email regarding my recovery. They followed up to see how I was doi ng. They were perfect all around.
Very kind staff.
My eyes are not symmetrical ...even 5 Months out...But the Dr. told me healing takes a lot of time so we have a follow up appt. again in October, and Dr. Is willing to do a revision if need be.
I absolutely love Dr. Rapheal and the staff! They are truly my second family!
My overall experience was absolutely excellent! Dr. Raphael is a wonderful surgeon and such a sweet person. He truly listened to what I wanted to achieve and let me know what was best for me. Catherine is an absolute sweetheart as well! Love her! She helped me feel right at home. This being my first surgery, I was not as nervous as I thought I would be thanks to the entire staff; they were all so kind and comforting. I will definitely be back to be beautified by the great Dr. Raphael! Thank you all so much!
After consulting 4 Plastic Surgeons, Doctor Peter was the best choice for my procedure, I am so satisfied with the results, he and his nurses are professional and caring . If I have another procedure I will not hesitate to do it with doctor Peter.
I wish I had been informed about the possibility, first of all, of having a catheter put in and secondly, of possibly needing to go home with it still in place. I understand how it was helpful, but it was a bit traumatic because I had never been informed that it was even a possibility.
No one really understands how much this changed my life and I'm very thankful to the staff and dr Raphael for what they did for me and how excited they were to be apart of my big day
I unfortunately was sick and not able to do my surgery .... Am coming back now in August much healthier and ready for surgery.
The staff was very nice and positive. Dr. Raphael made me feel relaxed about the surgery. I am not fond of medical procedures. The top surgery for guys like me means so much. I have always felt good about myself but now I feel liberated after the surgery. evryone compliments on the look of my new chest. Thank you all for everything. I am seriously thinking about doing the bootom surgery for guys like me next Summer. Thank you all again.
Professional staff, no delay with appointment time, no long wait in the waiting room or exam room. Although the waiting area is freezing cold, still get high ratings from me.
I loved the compassionate nature of the whole office. They actually treat you like they care.
Every time I've come so far I've had to wait 30 to 45 min. After check in. Also, when I first came and checked in, the long wait for the consultation and lack of info about the place made feel very afraid. I felt like leaving and never coming back. But, then when I finally went back for the consultation, it was splendid. I felt so much better. I wish there was a way to make new patients feel more welcome when we first come- especially if the wait is over an hour like mine was.
The staff goes out of the way to make you feel like their number one patient.
From consultation, to procedure, to follow up: Dr. Rapheal and his team were amazing! Being transgendered you never know how people will treat you; Angela, the nurses, the photographer, Dr. Rapheal were ALL phenomenal! They welcomed me with open and and made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Rapheal is the only surgeon I will get use, HE'S GREAT! Thank you so much! I'm so grateful for you and your team and the precision and artistry of all methods! You are truly heaven sent! See you in a few weeks for Part 2!
I have been a patient of Dr Raphel for several years. I totally love Catherine. She is so experienced and helpful. She makes me feel very special. The staff is extremely knowledgable snd friendly. All of my questions have been answered. Additionally Carherine and Dr Raphel provided alternatives that I am extremely interested inane excited I feel like the suggested procedures are designed specifically for me. Not just procedures that I asked about, the suggestions were so exciting after the surgeon explained to be the best alternatives. Can't wait! My results have always been excellent!Looking forward to the surgery and the care offered the evening and say after the surgery.
Catherine and surgeon explained procedure and benefit of procedure. Feel very comfortable with knowledge and expertise
Quick and easy
Both Catherine and dr Raphael were so friendly and caring.they answered all my concerns.
Really like Dr. Raphael and would always recommend him.
I loved it only hibgs rooms so bright almost uncomfortable and kind of warm
The check in ladies wasn't very friendly didn't really feel welcome. They were to busy talking to each other.
Dr Raphael, came highly recommended by ladies in my fitness industry and i respect their opinion. Dr Peter is warm and genuine and it seems his staff is an extension of that. they are all in agreement with everything. I don't feel they're after my money. i feel they are after my best interest
Over all I had a very good experience and would highly recommend to others that wish to have this surgery
AMAZING staff! AMAZING Doctor. Kindness and sweetness and a very comforting environment. Thank you for providing such wonderful atmosphere. This procedure literally changed my life and I couldn't ask for better results or a better process.
The level of respect shown by the surgeon and all staff was beyond my expectations. Not to mention everyone I encountered who worked there seemed to love their job. What a wonderful place to be.
The coordinators made this process very straight forward and simple and I have confidence in the surgeons ability to do my procedure.
Loved Dr. Rafael and Catherine and their staff!
The overall service provided by the doctor and his staff was outstanding!!!!
I felt extremely comfortable with all staff and most importantly my surgeon. All questions were answered before my procedure and all reviews were exceptional.
Dr Rapheal was AMAZING!! He answered ALL MY QUESTIONS with Much Knowledge and Caring, I was Completely at EASE from the time he walked into the room till he left!! Catherine was just as Caring and went ABOVE AND BEYOND to get me in as QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE!!!! Lori was AMAZING!!! She was my private care nurse and I would Highly Recommend HER!!! Best BEDSIDE MANNER!!! I Had a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift and some Lypo!! Would CHOOSE Dr.Rapheal and HIS TEAM AGAIN!! My ONLY REGRET IS THAT I DIDN'T HAVE IT DONE SOONER!!!
they are a wonderful team of professionals. yes I am coming back for more as soon as I can :)
i am willing to fly 900 miles and stay in a Plano hotel for a week to have Dr Raphael perform my surgery. I have complete confidence in his abilities because of successful previous surgeries. I also trust and respect his staff of patient advisors, nurses and anesthetists.
Katherine and Dr. Raphael, were not rushed; they both took their time to answer our qustions and concerns. I had two girlfriends recommend Dr. Raphael and I have friends who serve on medical board with him. Dr. Raphael came highly recommended.
Professional ism and confidence of surgeon and coordinator
My experience was amazing and absolutely adore Dr. Raphael and team. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job and making me feel very comfortable. I will be returning with my friend for our Lip Augmentation" with Dr. Raphael of course!! :)"
Dr Raphael was excellent in every aspect of my surgery. I would not hesitate to recommend or seek him again in the future for other procedures.thank you for taking care of me
The attention to detail and care of the staff and Physician were what I was looking for. Dr. Raphael came highly recommended by a friend who has very high standards so I had high expectations... which were met.
Dr. Rapheal was very kind and patient. He listened to my concerns and made some suggestions for a few other procedures and why he felt I would be happier if I chose to do them as well. When I questioned if I couldn't do all of them what would he suggest - he was able to help me break the procedures into two steps. I am still waiting to see the pictures that would show me what I could expect if I did all of the procedures.
Dr. Peter Raphael is an outstanding surgeon! Very detailed and persistent with his work. He is a true perfectionist. If I will have any other procedures in the future I will definitely come back and use his services.
The time and care that Dr. Raphael and his staff shared with me was greatly appreciated. I had several areas of concern to correct previous surgeries and all were addressed in detail. The communication with his staff is remarkable considering the busy schedule in his practice. I am five days post-op and feeling fantastic!
Informative, understanding, and courteous.
Very positive and I liked that Catherine has had some of the procedures I wanted so I could see the end results. I also have a friend who had these procedures and I liked her results. This guided me to except the surgery with Dr. Raphael. His prices are very good too.
I enjoyed visiting with Catherine and the Dr
SKILL, KNOWLEDGE AND HONEST!
Dr Peter Rapheal is an AMAZING surgeon I wish to thank him again
The staff is very friendly and comforting. Would definitely returnfor future surgeries.
Dr. Rafeal and his entire staff made my experience absolutely wonderful with results that far exceed my expectations. THANK YOU!
Dr. Raphael is very approachable, a great communicator, and highly skilled.
my face still needs work even when I had a face lift, upper and lower eye lid surgery and space between nose and lip reduced - If I do not say in the appointment that my eyes are not looking good, - the staff will not say anything. If I do not say that the skin in my jaw looks saggy they will not say anything - I wish they were more proactive and see that - the work is not done yet- why? and what will it take to fix it?
I am very short, and have a baby face. Naturally, I typically find it difficult to receive respect or the correct pronouns. I have never liked going to the doctor and I have never had surgery, so you can imagine how terrified I was for my gender reassignment consultation and the appointments that would follow. However, the second I walked into the office, I have never felt more comfortable. Everyone was so helpful, polite, respectful, informative, and kind. My surgery was completed very quickly and the healing process was incredible. My phenomenal results far exceeded my expectations! I cannot describe how grateful I am for the American institute of Plastic Surgery and Dr. Peter Raphael. My experience could not have been better and everyday I am so thankful for my life changing results. Thank you! :)
The surgeon took the time to meet with me, did not charge me for the consultation, and did not rush the visit.
I feel like my lips and upper lips are lopsided. I realize it's only been 3 months but I am thinking of going to another doctor to see what can be done. The implants are uneven and one side of my upper lip has headed different than the other side. In addition, there were a couple of stitches in my nose and once removed they have left scars on my upper lip. Scars running from the opening of my nose down. I did not have those originally. This is not what I bargained for at all and the money does not come easy for me. I had to take out a loan to have work performed and now I am making payments on something that everytime I look in the mirror I am so disappointed. I feel deformed.
Dr Rafael and his staff were wonderful. He was also very patient with my indecisiveness and helped me feel confident in the decision I made. Really pleased with my results!
Angela has been helpful, friendly, and professional far above and beyond expectations.
Great staff, very respectful, very knowledgable on transgender individuals, great doctor! I felt very safe and comfortable, the staff specifically made me feel like everything was going to be A-OK. Thanks guys!
the overall reputation of the clinic and Dr. Rapheal. the kindess of the staff and doctor were just outstanding. i wish the price was not so high on my male top surgery but i feel good about having it done there.
They were knowledgeable and accommodated my needs. The doctor understood my wants and needs
All of my questions were answered, and while the patient coordinator was enthusiastic and helpful, I didn't feel like she was trying to sell me anything. Everything was discussed upfront, not hidden fees or add-ons. She acknowledged my concerns and nervousness, tried to reassure me where she could but didn't make me feel silly for having them. I appreciate that they seem to understand the choice to have elective surgery is a big one for me!
Getting requested info regarding my decision to have this procedure- surg info/ financial info.
Dr. Peter Raphael and his staff where amazing and friendly and made me feel so comfortable when I visited and had surgery. To me he is the best doctor I've ever been to and he literally saved my life and I can't thank him or his staff enough. He is just amazing!!!!!
Dr. Raphael has the perception of an artist" as well as the skill of detailed surgery. His results are exactly what I envisioned. I look better but not over done. I'm VERY enthusiastic about the outcome of my experience with my surgery."
The staff and surgeon were very friendly and made me feel important and not just like one of many patients that come through there.
Dr. Raphael a genius, brilliant in his field. An extraordinary bedside manner. His nurse, Debbie Smith, compliments him. She is very caring and a true professional.Thank you for changing my life!Sincerely,Shelley A. Wilmot
I was very nervous about the consultation. Catherine and Dr. Rafael made me feel very comfortable about the procedure. I left feeling real good about making my decision.
No drains and happier patients
Everyone was very friendly and knowledgable. Also, Dr. Raphael made me feel very comfortable during the consultation.
I just thought it would have been cheaper
I love how the person who I was coordinating with was extremely friendly, and all the paper work was easy to fill out. Plus we got scheduled sooner than I thought!
Catherine could not have been more knowledgeable or thorough in the pre & post experience. The surgical nurse and anthesiologist were very calming and reassuring. Dr Raphael's treatment recommendations reflect a concern and expertise that make me feel like I'm a member of his own family. I flew from Phoenix, AZ for my surgery and stayed in a hotel for one week because there's no one else in the plastic surgery industry that I trust more.
Everyone was friendly. It was fast, informative and affordable.
Great staff working for Dr Raphael....didn't expect to feel as comfortable as I did with them since I wasn't comfortable w myself. They answered and listened to all my questions, couldn't of been any happier with them!!!!
The staff member I worked with was very nice and informative and I was able to schedule my surgery with no difficulty. I'm also pleased with the doctors results.
I was highly satisfied with my experience with Dr.Peter Raphael and his staff. Everyone was very respectful,kind,friendly and helpful to me.
I love my results and felt like everyone was highly trained.
These are the friendliest people ever. The surgeon has amazing results and I am impressed by every component I have encountered with them.
Dr. Rahpael made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. This was my very first surgery ever, and the surgery team made it to where I wasn't nervous at all and everything just went very smoothly. I am so pleased with my results, and can't thank Dr. Raphael enough.
Dr. Raphael is extremely personable and welcoming! Incredible bed side manners. Very friendly and talkative and his staff have been with him for 10+ years. Everyone seems to truly enjoy what they do.
Everyone was helpful and made me feel really comfortable. The facility was also really clean. I just felt at ease the entire time.
The people who work here seem to genuinely like working here. i'm going through insurance for my procedure and most insurance companies have found ways to not cover it. Dr Rafael has been on the phone with the insurance docs on behalf of the patients--I was extremely impressed to hear this. A plastics doc who is genuinely interested in the patients he's serving. I'm looking forward to scheduling my procedure. trust came easy and this place made me feel very at ease.
I felt like I didn't know exactly what to expect afterwards and that I expected my results to be better.
I loved how the staff was so professional and so friendly. Made me feel at easy and not nervous at all!
Communication, communication, communication. Knowing what was going on was a major stress reducer for me.
I have seen many results, since I am in a group where trans men post pictures of their chests every single day, and my chest looks as well or better than those of men who went to the most popular" surgeon, Garramone. Raphael gave a competitive price close to my home, and I feel proud taking off my shirt for the first time in my life. His bedside manner is exhuberant, fun, and intelligent, and when I was so nervous, this was appreciated. I felt very safe. His staff knows how to speak respectfully to trans people, and I felt comfortable with their level of knowledge for sensitivity. My nurse in the operating area was so sweet and respectful. She made me laugh to lighten the mood, too. I was grateful for a wonderful experience. Thank you... I have been recommending Dr. R to everyone. My photo of my chest at 1 month post-op got over 400 likes in a private group! "
I got the info I needed. It was all made clear to me about what I needed and needed to be prepared for.
Dr. Raphael and all of the staff were wonderful. I'm so pleased.
Incredibly friendly, respectful, and professional staff, great results.
Being new to surgery can be scary. Dr. Raphael and his team made it easy for me to get through everything. Great outcome as well.
Everyone was very nice, and i liked Dr. Raphael's results
Actually I was quite satisfied.
Loved Dr, Raphael. Everything went exactly as described. No complications whatsoever
I had and have the best Doctor (Dr Peter Raphael) and his staff were and still are exceptional!!!
I Felt like It was just my family. They made me feel like there Was nothing to worry about. Every question was answered and they made my girlfriend feel at ease while I was in surgery.
Dr Rafael did my nose in 2000 . his skillz are unmatched ...The new office and staff are amazing ..very exited to have procedure done.
Everyone working at the facility was extremely kind and helpful. I did not feel awkward at all and I was more than satisfied with my results.
The people I interacted with were friendly and knowledgeable. Any questions I had were answered in a timely manner.
I was impressed by the great breast augment. my best friend had by Dr. Raphael and so he was the first doctor that came to mind when I decided to have blepharoplasty. When I had my consult, although everyone was extremely nice, I did not feel the dr. examined me in any real way or paid enough attention to my case. I have since seen other doctors who examined my eyes with a measuring device/process and informed me I had an issue that needed to be addressed by an oculoplastic surgeon. Now I am confused and not sure how to proceed. I would like to hear what Dr. Raphael has to say.
I have previously used Dr. Raphael for a different surgery. He did a great job and his personality cannot be beat. He seems to care about you as a person, takes the time to explain the procedure in detail and is just all around pleasant.
I am very satisfied. Extremely satisfied. There are just time issues with getting surgery dates set up and then getting some answers to questions about post op results.
I am loyal to Dr Raphael and the team at the American Institute of Plastic surgery. The personalized care and attention given is second to none. I'm super pleased with my results .could not be happier.
Everyone at the office was respectful, and put me at ease. Very clear instructions, short wait times. Procedure went phenomenally. My expectations were exceeded.
Professional , personable, & competent staff. Comfortable and secure feeling about surgery.
Dr. rapheal was amazing & no pain at all! Just hoping after my swelling goes down my profile of my nose starts to dip more but that's something he's taking care of and I'm 100\% satisfied with that and every nurse at his office is so sweet and really helps you prepare for your surgery and even after surgery! I would recommended them to anyone and if I ever have another procedure done I would never go anywhere else.
Staff was amazing - friendly, funny - quirky - but professional and put me at ease. The whole experience was well planned well thought out and I was never in any discomfort. I was never nervous or apprehensive.
I'm pretty sure I couldn't be more delighted!
Everyone was extremely helpful, friendly, informative and courteous
I was very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. My results after vaginal tightening, hood reduction, clitoral reduction and labiaplasty are simply better then I could have ever asked for and life changing. I would highly recommend Dr. Raphael to friends, family, or anyone.
Doctor's skill, friendly staff and availability of his nurse for questions.
Excellent professional care in all aspects. Great outcome!
The staff was very helpful and caring. They answer questions and make you feel comfortable. The surgeon takes the time to listen to any concerns and discusses the procedure with you. I love my results and have recommended the center to several people already.
Excellent professional care in every aspect. I would highly recommend this practice for any cosmetic surgery needs.
The entire staff treated me like a family member from the first time I contacted their facility until the consultation. The Patient coordinator as well as Dr. Raphael on the day of my consult was very informative, professional and made me feel very confident this was where I'd have my procedure performed. All of my questions was answered with pictures of the procedure I'm having to prove the amazing quality of his work. I would highly recommend this facility.
My friend did the surgery with doctor Raphael. I went to consultation with her as well. The nurse and the doctor made us very comfortable and answered all the questions. Even more, they gave us information that we didn't ask and over all it was very good experience. And I also see my friend after her surgery. She looks amazing. Thats why im sure I want to do my surgery with this doctor '-)
Dr. Raphael's reputation and demeanor instills patient confidence that he knows professional procedures and is highly regarded in his field of plastic surgery. More than professional procedures, Dr. Raphael is an 'artist' who understands how to achieve positive results from surgery that leaves the patient looking truly better and not 'too much'. He really cares about the results of his surgeries. I feel that under his care and attention I am in good hands.
I had no issues and was satisfied with all aspects of the visit.
The staff was EXCELLENT and very friendly. Raphael was so calm and easy going, despite how uncomfortable he knew I was with that had to be done before my procedure. The entire office used my preferred name and pronouns and made me feel at ease and made the experience fun. The nurse I was to ask for in the event of questions post op was VERY informative and friendly. Lauri? or Lori? I think? Overall, very happy with my results and how I was treated. Very worth the money and I have recommended several to you since my surgery. Continue to be trans friendly and awesome!!!!!
I have know Dr. Raphael for last twenty plus years .He did my first lip suction,I have always been very happy with my results.
It takes alot for me to be highly satisfied. Everything was fine and the people were attentive enough.
I was very nervous about this surgery. Dr. Raphael had performed procedures on many of my friends and not only were they satisfied with the results i could see them first hand. I was comfortable with his staff and consultation. I'm highly satisfied with the overall results. I'm going back for more work in the future.I had:Laser Facial ResurfacingNose Cheek implantsbreast augmentationNeck/Face LiftUnderlidsI'm am more than satisfied with everything and everyone I've met was relieved that i still looked natural and everything looks right. I'm already scheduled for Lipo/and skin only tummy tuck.I've gone in also for botox treatments. The entire staff from the consultants, the nurses during the / before the surgery the anhestisialogist etc. all were just so nice, re-assuring and a wonderful bedside manner.I trust this doctor and even though i could get it done for less somewhere else - i know i'm in good hands.
Angela was wonderful and very caring, and showed compassion. No other surgeons or staff shpwed this level of compassion
I was satisfied with the experience as a whole and of the results.
Dr. Raphael and his staff are amazing! They are extremely respectful of the transgender community and make it a point to use preferred names and pronouns. I felt extremely at ease during all aspects of the surgery process. I felt as one of the family" and as though they all were taking care of me and my wife as they would their own loved ones. The information they provided and care they showed were very beneficial to my preparation and recovery."
The surgeon drew on my stomach and nobody offered to give me anything to remove the marks. I had saved up $6,000, which I had understood to be the average in Dallas. When I was told $10,500 I knew it was out of my range.
The Dr and his staff very friendly, the Dr help me understanding, and what is the best out come, no presure what so ever, and the clinic so awesome.. When I got the quote, very thing including, not like the other, so I know how to expected...
The staff was friendly, was more than willing to answer my multiple questions, made me feel comfortable, and were straight forward. Dr. Raphael was warm, friendly, and creative. He listened to my goals and used his experience and creativity to suggest alternatives that will have a better outcome than I could have imagined. He came highly recommended from my friend Tammy. Upon returning to Houston, I discovered that he is the brother in law of my best friend's brother. She had wonderful things to say about him as a person and as a surgeon. These recommendations from people I highly respect only acted to reinforce that choosing to go Dr. Raphael is the right choice :-)
Dr.Raphael and his staff are professional and caring about each and every step of the way.
I have had multiple procedure done by Dr Raphael.I would NEVER go to anyone else.He also saw me the very next day after a terrible fall that pushed my cheek implant into my eye.He manually manipulated it back down. I was able to avoid surgery. I have also seen him for other procedures. I LOVED the fact that several times he told me that it was too soon to have it done! Wow! A doctor that turns down money! I have often shared his number with many friends.
Now five months after the procedure, there really isn't a significant difference in the shape or size of my adam's apple compared with before photos. I'm not sure if I just had unrealistic expectations about the limitations of the surgery, but I question whether the procedure was worth the recovery and expense.
Each member of the staff is professional and friendly. Dr Raphael is extremely personable and has an excellent reputation
Over all I am happy and thank you
The staff/office were highly attentive to the nature of their business as it relates to someone like me. I was gathering information and facts, they were interested that I got such info and did not treat me as though I was merely an uninvolved client--but as one with a potential long term relationship.
The doctor told me exactly what he could do and what he could not do. The doctor also gave me his honest opinion about areas that I wanted to change that probably would not look good afterwards.
Dr. Raphael and his entire staff were truely professional as well as friendly. Easy to work with and always helpful in any and all my concerns. The surgery was excellant and my healing process was easy. The end results were very satisfactory and pleasing.Thank you to Dr. Raphael and his entire staff.
Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff-my usual experience with medical providers (especially for transgender care) involves having to explain everything and uncomfortable exchanges. I was immediately impressed.
Catherine was amazing. She knew that I was extremely uncomfortable being naked, and she tried her very best to put me at ease. She was pleasant and easy to talk to. So far my experience with this facility has been facilitated primarily by her. She is the main reason I have chosen to use Dr. Raphael. She returns calls promptly, and makes me feel important.
I am a current patient of Dr. Raphael and trust him completely!
Dr Raphael's staff is extremely competent and very experienced. The atmosphere is relaxed and calming.
All the girls in the office are blonds and all of them look like they have fake lips. i don't like the lips on everyone , i know these dr.s invited them or something but they look so fake its not attractive.
I am sure that Dr. Ralphael is a perfectionist and have seen many before and after of his work in persona and in photos.
Doctor and staff were excellent, friendly and respectful
The bedside manner or the physician was excellent. The nurse who cared for me after surgery was awesome, as well as the anesthesiologist prior to surgery. Everyone at the office made me feel important and them showing concern was well appreciated. I just love Dr. Raphael, he is so funny, yet professional. Each nurse that was associated with my care has been a god sin in my recovery process. I would highly recommend services.
Dr. Raphael was extremely caring. He made me feel comfortable & made me feel at home. He answered all the questions I had.
I had my original lip implants at a different plastic surgeons office in 2006 and the care (pre and post op) did not begin to compare to AI4PS. At AI4PS, the Patient Coordinator (Catherine), NP (Lori) and my Doctor (Dr. Raphael) were top notch best of the best in their communications of what to realistically expect, down time needed and all other general questions I had concerning my lip implant revision and lip lift. My first surgeon did not even offer a post op! I get 3 post ops at AI4PS. Dr Raphael listened to what I wanted to achieve and even asked me to remind him the morning of surgery so it would be fresh on his mind - that was impressive. I loved the patient packet I received detailing exactly what to expect throughout the entire healing process and what to do to prepare. Plus, his work is stunning! I've done a lot to my lips in the past 12 years and his surgery by far granted the prettiest result. This practice from the doctor and the entire staff is wonderful, caring and kind. I've recommended 2 friends already who have been pleased with their services as well. I continue to see Lori for face injections and will have all my future surgeries done by Dr. Rahael.
Estoy muy agradecida con todas las atenciones recibidas por todos especialmente pir mi Dr Pedro Raphael es una persona maravillosa y como Dr es el mejor!!! Me he tratado con el por aproximadamente 20 anos y siempre he quedado muy muy satisfecha con las cirugias que he tenido con el . Dios lo bendiga siempre doctor es usted maravilloso.
Staff made mi comfortable
The only complaint I have is that I was promised photo shop enhanced pictures of what the expected results would look like.
Excellent Staff in all areas. Especially my nurse friend who referred me. Dr. Raphael did a great job- (I'm pretty sure as the bruising is starting to dissipate & new contour beginning to take place.) So far good outcome! Plan to have other procedures in future & refer friends & family that may be interested.
Each person in the office is great. Dr Rafael is wonderful. Makes the experience very comfortable.
Peter Raphael is a humble and compassionate perfectionist who exemplifies integrity, humor, artistry, frankness, honesty, and he looks at his patients as humans, not bodies or parts or even a paycheck. He would not operate on someone who did not have realistic understanding of the procedure and a willingness to take care of his or her or their body. I felt completely safe and secure in having him as my surgeon and knowing that I would be respected as a human being and would not be dismissed, discounted or discriminated against.
Post-Op was communication were very minimum. Hard to contact nurses for problems and was given brief summary how to treat without providing some guide. Even after a few email contacts, I was still unable to get informations on how to care post-op. Wish there was some pamphlet or guideline that was provided just like pre-op.
I have a scar on my upper right abdomin from Gallbladder surgery when I was twenty one. Dr. Rapheal was the only Doctor that i consulted that even acknowledged it and how it would affect my tummy tuck. After hearing his concerns about blood flow to the scar and seeing the before and after pictures I knew he was the Doctor that I wanted to preform my surgery. His nurse Catherine has been very helpful and prompt with responses I have asked in e-mails since my consultation! I am very pleased with my overall experience!
Excellent surgeon and staff!!
The knowledge and experience of the staff was wonderful. The whole experience was wonderful
The results are not what was portrayed.
Dr and nurse were very personable and made me feel relaxed and comfortable and answered all my questions
VERY NICE AND WELCOMING PERSONAL AND MAKE YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
The Dr. seemed very friendly--took his time and I didn't feel rushed. Almost felt like he was an old friend happy to see me.
I was very nervous to come in for a consultation but the staff and Dr. Raphael made me very comfortable and provided all of the information I needed and answered all of my questions. I was highly satisfied with my experience and have already scheduled my procedure for December 5th and I am very excited.
The staff and surgery experience was great. I did not have any complications.
The entire process far exceeded my expectations. I was very nervous as this was my first procedure but everyone was extremely helpful and kind and made the whole process very easy and natural. Dr. Raphael is absolutely amazing. Without having to say too much he completely understood my vision right on the money. He never tried to push a size on me and he is very visual and you can tell he has a very keen artistic sense. I was so happy with how everything turned out. I am about 5 months post op and everything is healing fantastically. They look so natural that not many people know I had anything done. I loved his work so much that I recommended him to 2 of my friends and they both used him for their procedures and are very happy as well. Dr. Raphael is amazing and he has such a welcoming, calming spirt, as soon as he walked in the door for the first time, I knew I was in the right place.
already explained it in the first essay.
Dr. Raphael is by far the very best plastic surgeon I know. I have been seeing him for nearly 20 years and I would never even consider going to any other plastic surgeon. I have also referred several people to him, and they all agree he is the kindest, most attentive. and knowledgeable surgeon they have met. His attention to every detail the patient is hoping to accomplish, and his explanation of the procedure and what they should expect is thorough. He treats his patients with complete respect and makes each of us is the most important patient he has. He will give me as much time as I need to have all of my questions answered. He makes me, and everyone I know who has used his services, completely at ease, and he has our utmost safety, care, and outcome at the top of his goals. Thank you Dr. Raphael for all you have done for me over the last twenty years. Don't ever retire!!!!
They were friendly, knowledgable, and didn't sugarcoat. I am extremely excited to have the procedure done by this awesome group!
Dr Raphael and his staff were very nice and professional! It was reassuring to know that he has worked with several transgender patients and wants to help them find happiness with their body without judging them for not fitting a stereotypical mold of male/female perfection. Way to go!!
My concerns about my size were extremely important.I did did not want large breasts, just a pretty shape,(they were droopy with age) and size. Dr. Raphael made me feel very secure that he would do just that .He made me very happy, i am extremely grateful! I'm a Nana ,busy preschool teacher and pretty active. He gave me a nice small C-perfect!
Staff is excellent, very informative and willing to help in any way.
This surgery is hard for certain people to understand (FTM - top surgery). So it was especially nice to hear the correct verbiage used by the patient consultant and the physician as well. I researched the facility and specifically that physician whom I had my consultation with - I felt relieved and comfortable to know that I feel that I am in the right hands for this type of transition. I have scheduled my surgery for November and am excited!!
The doctor was great! He listened to what i wanted and gave me some suggestions and realistic outcomes. Not just what i wanted to hear. The coordinator is pleasant and answered all my questions.
Dr Raphael is a sweetheart as well as his staff, they are very thorough and accommodating , I really like his work with facial feminization.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Very happy with the results. The staff and Dr. Raphael were amazing, they did a really good job from my 1st appointment to my follow ups.
The nurse seemed enthused to do my procedure,bragged on how low pain...and great my results will be.
I already did.
I loved the attitude and patient care given by the provider. I was told upfront and honestly what would be best for me. I felt no pressure at all to have my procedure by Dr. Raphael after I compared his practice with other choices. I appreciated the honesty and was very excited after I left his office.
I felt very comfortable with Dr and staff. They went out of their way to make me feel right at home. It was an overall good experience. I do however feel the Dr went a little larger than I requested. I wanted to be a full D and I am now a full DD...much larger than I expected. My husband is very pleased with Dr's decision however for me its going to take some getting use to. Facility was very nice and they do offer great care!
I was informed in detail about the procedure I wanted done. Everything went smoothly with no problems and I will have the procedure done in a couple weeks.
I love Dr. Raphael and his team. They are a very warm and genuine staff. I would not go anywhere else for a procedure. He is the best doctor!
The staff and the facility are all so nice and helpful. I didn't have any question they couldn't answer or concern they weren't compassionate to.
This was not my first procedure with Dr. Raphael. I was highly satisfied the first time. And both times, from the greeting in the office through follow up visits, I couldn't be more pleased with the level of professionalism. Dr. Raphael and his staff made me feel at ease and like I was their only patient. They treated my husband the very same way. I felt like I was we'll equipped with knowledge of my procedures...as well as a skin only tummy tuck I also had a lower face/neck lift and liposuction.
Simply stated, it would be difficult to express how I could more positively feel about ALL of the pre surgery and surgical experience. I was able to carefully express my anticipations... and now, almost 3 months later, I could not be more pleased! Kudos as well, for the entire nursing and support staff... what truly nice people, who are supportive in every imaginable way!
Dr. Raphael and his staff were amazing! I went to several consults before I made my final decision and couldn't be any happier with my final results. I love my mommy makeover (tummy tuck and breast augmentation). I would go back to Dr. Raphael if I had to do it all over again. He is very personable and easy to talk to. His work is incredible and I am very satisfied with my new body.
Have now set the date for the surgery, feel good about moving forward and excited to be finished
My experience was first class I would go back and would recomend It to all my friends. I could not ask for better care from the beginning to the end. Staff and everyone involved very helpful and friendly. There was no pressure to have any other procedures other than what I chose .just a great experience I am so pleased with results
Courteous and knowledgeable staff
I so appreciate the doctor(Peter Raphael) and his personal interest in what I wanted and needed. Gave me comfort that I was doing the right thing! Now being a Nana and kids grown and having their own families, I wanted to have a practical, yet shapely augmentation. I think my husband will be very pleased when I allow him to touch-LOL- after healing!
I was treated with respect and staff were sensitive to my concerns.
Dr. Raphael and the staff are exemplary. My first surgery with Dr. Raphael was in 2001. I've never been disappointed with any results. Dr. Raphael and his staff have helped me to maintain the appearance I desire. Great Team!!!
Expert knowledge and friendly staff
Dr. and all staff were friendly, answered questions, and were cheerful. Nice, new offices and waiting room. Overall gave me a feeling of confidence regarding the procedures.
Dr. Raphael, Nurse Debbie and Miss Catherine are always very professional, helpful and very caring. Going to AI4PS is like going home to visit family, only better.
I had a lipo procedure 14 years ago,and Dr.Raphael did a fantastic job!-so when I came in to talk about breast implants,he and the consult Catherine (I think)were great!-they listened and understand.i would recommend them to any one,and have!
I was referred by a friend who had a breast enhancement procedure. I did some research online first and wasn't happy with the surgeons before & after pics. But this doctor knows what he is doing. I just have to quit smoking first :/
Very professional and welcoming staff. As someone who is trans, I could not be more satisfied with the level of care I recieved there.
I've referred several friends to Dr. Raphael already and will continue to do so. He and his staff are extremely courteous and go to great lengths to make patients feel completely comfortable. I'm very satisfied with the results of the rhinoplasty and breast augmentation that he performed.
I had never had a cosmetic procedure before, and after losing 100 pounds from diet/exercise I had a lot of loose skin, and fat deposits in odd areas which were not coming off. I had put off having a combination tummy tuck (loose skin removal), and lipo for years, but after seeing the results, I wish had done this with procedure Dr. Raphael years ago, his work is impressive, and if I ever had another procedure to do, I would go back to him.
Everyone makes you feel at home and very comfortable.
Thank you Dr. Raphael and Lori. You guys are amazing!Rebecca Schwartz
Post op question to Dr Raphael, he didn't want to go into detail about how he performed the face lift surgery. I was super curious after the surgery was done. I really wish he would have explained it to me wo just dissing the question. He may have too many patients and feel rushed?
Dr. Raphael & Staff were so nice and respectful. Everyone made me feel so comfortable and my family. The Doc has the best bedside manner. LOVED the outcome and will be back.
I used dr raphael for my breast augmentation and again for my rhinoplasty procedure. He was very honest and helped me achieve exactly what I wanted without really knowing what I wanted. He was a great guide
The entire staff was incredible, The outcome of my procedures look amazing, Dr. Rapheal was extremely helpful & insiteful as to how to approach & achieve the look I wanted for my face at my age! I feel I look very Refreshed and rejuvenated opposed to the harshly over done too young look" ! The compliments on his work have been overwhelming ..... No one can figure out quite what I did ;) "
2 family members had recent procedures & recommended highly
2 family members used him; very satisfied
Great experience and great staff.
Staff, personel, and surgeon were extremely professional, caring and seemed truly interested in me and what I wanted to do. Imwas impressed the surgical suites were on site and that a pre surgical apptointment will be made so the patient can tour the surgical area. For first timers, I believe that helps calm nerves!The facilities are clean and the ambience was comfortable.
Dr. Raphael was fantastic! I'm so happy with the outcome and from the very begining consultation, all the way through post op, every staff member answered all of my questions thoroughly and did an amazing job of making both myself and my boyfriend comfortable. The office was nice and the front office specialists were very friendly and welcoming. The very first appointment I made, the lady on the phone was great and even remembered me when I came to check in! The day of my surgery happened to be a morning when it was snowing and everything still went off without a hitch. The reason I decided to do my surgery as quickly as I did was because I was very impressed with the consultation. I also was referred to Dr. Raphael from a former patient of his who also had breast implants done and was very satifisied with her surgery outcome :)
The staff went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and readiness.Dr. Raphael is amazing. Not only his bedside manners, he is an artist. I've never felt better in all my years.Thank you guys; Dr. Raphael and his nurses are the same team I've gone to and sent family and friends to for the past 15yrs.
Dr. R truly is a talented artist who listens closely to what outcome you want and does not give you a cookie cutter" look. He strives for the perfect look for you! He is kind, compassionate and passionate about his work. I had rhinoplasty, eyelid surgiery and lipo, all done to perfection. Totally pleased. I would not go anywhere else. I also had a lip augmentation in the past and the results are fabulous! Great staff... Love Catherine and the nurses. You girls are the best! "
Both the Consultant, Catherine, and the Surgeon, Raphael, were very friendly and thorough throughout my consultation. I have already scheduled my surgery for the following month, with ease since they had availability on the day I was available. I did return to the office to look at more pictures other than the ones placed online, and I cannot wait for my Pre OP Appointment. I am a little nervous about the surgery, but I think that is normal. The staff here is very professional and I'm sure I will feel at ease.
Coordinator as well as sugeon were friendly, human, and professional in the manner in which they took time to listen to my concerns and wishes as the patient. Questions were answered to my satisfaction.Positive thinking and attitude regarding desired outcome
Dr Raphael and staff are very professional and courtesy.
The doctor and staff were beyond exceptional! Everyone was super friendly and the doctor knew exactly what I wanted. He definitely has an eye for detail and was so kind. I had a great experience for my first consulation
The way you guys talking and listen what patients feel and care about themselves !
Dr. Raphael and his staff were absolutely amazing from the first phone call, through the entire procedure (Bi-Lateral Orchiectomy) and after care. I plan to return to see him for future things I want done, and have already highly recommended him to thousands of people I am connected through to on social media sites. I refer to him as the best kept secret among people who are born trans sexed.
Everyone in the office is so friendly and the information was very helpful and complete. I am looking forward to my procedure!
Took in spanish w my doctor, awnswer all my questions,
As a man of trans experience, I am usually treated with a certain amount of ignorance and disrespect. I am accustomed to people not understanding what or why I am and therefore reacting with alot of hostility. The professionals at this facility did not have this problem. They treated me with alot of kindness and respect. They appeared to be well informed beforehand of what it means to be transgender and used all of the correct language including pronouns! To many people, it may not be significant, but for a person like me, respect and being treated with dignity is something I have to fight for on a daily basis. So for it to be given freely and with no reservation left me floored to say the least. I wish this team the very best and am very much looking forward to scheduling the date of my procedure.
previous good experiences with this practice
Excellent surgeon and staff
Dr. Raphael is simply the best. He knows exactly what he is doing and made me feel very comfortable and at ease about my procedure. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The office and all the facilities are impeccably clean.
The customer service aspect was very good. Everyone was courteous and friendly and treated me as more than just another patient.
Extremely nice staff. Willing to help and go out of their way.
Everyone on staff was incredibly respectful and friendly. They made me feel secure and welcomed and expressed a genuine interest in helping their patients and a sensitivity to their needs.
Staff and physician were both very professional, knowledgeable and went out of their way to assist me and answer all my questions/concerns. I felt Dr Rapheal gave me some very sound/honest advice concerning the procedure I want to have and I really appreciated that. I would/have recommended him to a family member.
Dr. Raphael is a warm and caring doctor ........ I came to see him in August 2000 to have a breast surgery done, it was perfect !!! I trust him and know he will exceed my expectations !!! I love Catherine, she answered a lot of my questions which was a big help ......
everyone was wonderful and very knowledgeable. i was happy withe he consultation.
I received the information i needed and staff was friendly.
Everyone was just super, warm, friendly, very helpful. Couldn't have asked for better. I had no fear after all the explanation.
Dr. Raphael and his staff were very friendly and the overall outcome has been great!
I loved the attention I received from Dr. Raphael and the nurses and staff. I felt extremely comfortable.
I appreciated how communicative all the staff members were. Everyone was friendly and nice even when they didn't know what procedure I was getting. They were very willing to work with me under unusual circumstances.
I love Dr. Raphel from the day we consulted with him. We KNEW he would be the one to perform my surgery.He`s very honest and upfront and makes sure that you understand everything before leaving the office.His nurses are incredible as well as the staff. I have never felt uncomfortable at all around any of them. I would highly recommend him or this practice to anyone. Glad to have such a good experience with him and the whole staff.THANKS TO ALL OF YOU I`M A MUCH HAPPIER PERSON AFTER COMPLETEING THESE PAST 2 FINAL SURGERIES. :)
My doctor and staff was great. The bedside manner was awesome and made me really comfortable.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Dr Raphael was profession al and easy to talk too
The experience of the doctor and the friendliness of the staff.
Very professional. Liked the physician who took time to weigh options. Have scheduled the procedure and look forward to it.
They were extremely friendly and also seemed genuinely excited for my decision to make these changes and to be able to help.
I have used Dr. Raphael before and I was very satisfied and I also sent a friend for a procedure and she was very happy.I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Raphael and his coordinator and nurse are wonderful.
Staff was extremely personable and very knowledgeable.
Everyone from the receptionist on the phone to the coordinator, nurses, anesthesiologists, and Dr. Raphael were absolutely amazing. Everyone was friendly, very personal and made me feel as comfortable as I could have felt at all of my appointments. I know someone who had the same procedure done by Dr. Raphael 7 years ago and still loves her which is what brought me in the door. I was so impressed after the consultation, I scheduled my pre op visit and surgery date on the spot for two weeks later. Dr. Raphael was great with giving me recommendations and helping me select the right size that my body could support. Everyone was very thorough when asking about my current meds, family health history, allergies, etc. multiple times before I came in for my procedure. I can't say enough about how delightful the overall entire experience was. I will definitely be recommending this office and surgeon to others in the near future! Thank you for everything!!!
Dr. Raphael was very attentive to exactly what result I wanted from the procedures. He was very caring and passionate about his work. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. I was made to feel very comfortable about having these procedures done and I am very happy with my procedures.
They made me feel very comfortable. .excited for my surgery in 2 weeks!!
Dr. Raphael had done procedures on me in 2000. I liked him and was thrilled with the result because of his expertise. I would not consider going to anyone else for another procedure. He has my trust and I know he is up to date on this surgery. I believe he has my best interest in his mind and heart. He wants me to be happy with the procedures and I believe will go the extra mile to make sure that happens.
The friendliness of surgeon and staff. Made to feel comfortable during consultation.
I have had cosmetic surgery before and I really like that surgeon. But Dr. Raphael was very patient and informative. He and his assistant made me feel like they were very forth coming and honest about the procedure and recovery time. He also gave me thorough exam and told me EVERYTHING I really needed. I was educated on all of my options and what would happen from beginning to end.
Friendly, and relaxed. Surgeon was personable and easy to talk to.
I found Dr Raphael and his staff to be very friendly, helpful, cheerful, and professional. They cheerfully answered all of my questions and concerns. They provided me with all of the information that I needed, and explained the various processes and steps needed to attain my goals. I highly recommend this Dr and facility. And the prices are very reasonable. They also work very hard to fit whatever scheduling time you need.
The level of professionalism by everyone.
Dr Raphael listened to what I wanted and the surgery results were exactly what I had asked for. Dr and staff answered all my questions and made sure I understood everything. Completely satisfied with Dr, Staff, and results. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Both of my daughters and I have had nothing but fantastic results and satisfaction with this Dr and Practice.
Dr. Raphael is the best! He did my daughter''s breast implants and I would not have considered any other doctor! Also, love Catherine. She really makes you feel at ease.
They made me feel comfortable and at ease about moving forward with my procedure.
Dr. Raphael and his team listened to my needs in terms of what I wanted to achieve. He did not try and sell" me on additional procedures however did provide feedback and/or suggestions on ways to improve or maximize my results. Everyone I interacted with was pleasant, curteous and extremely helpful and supportive both prior and after the surgery. I have been extremely satisfied with my experience with Dr. Raphael and would definitely recommend him to others in the future."
Everyone is highly professional and all questions were answered prior to going ahead with this procedure.
Every staff member was friendly and made me feel like I was their only patient. All questions were answered happily. Surgeon and team were very nice and respectful. Everything was done quickly and efficiantly.
I can now breathe more easily.
Doctor Raphael and the staff made me feel so comfortable and at ease with my decision. Before, throughout and aftar the surgery the nurses specially Lori were absolutely amazing. Lori is such a caring sweet and compassionate person. She took excellent care of me after the surgery and each time I visited the clinic for check up. I was on my feet the third day ofMy operation. The pain was nothing i had ever imagined and witnessed from friends that have had the same procedure done. It's been a life changing experience for me. I look wonderful i feel wonderful. I have so much more confidence. I will and have recommended friends . I will definitly go back if I need get other things done. Thank you doctor Raphael, Lori and Debbie and everyone else at the clinic.
Very professional, friendly and have a wonderful chair side with the patient . I felt very confident in picking this surgeon.
Dr. Raphael came highly recommended. He was very professional and made me feel very comfortable. Will diffently schedule my procedures with him.
Excellent physician and staff from office and surgery center.
I have friends who have used Dr Raphael and wereHappy with their results. Dr was friendly and informsInformation understood. All staff was friendly!
The scheduled vaginaplasty will be the 2nd procedure I have had performed by Dr Raphael, with him having performed a bilateral orchiectomy approximately 8 years ago. Given that, I have remained very, very pleased and impressed in the manner I was treated, both by Dr Raphael and his staff... all of which has greatly influenced me to return for this next procedure. My telephone consultation(s) and contacts were with Katherine Walker, who immediately creates an impression that she genuinely is interested in my care... which given, what is likely a lesser performed procedure, particularly impressed me with her knowledge. She surely must be a real treasure" to the overall performance of the whole staff!"
Stitches were perfect on my face and were not visible.
Did not care for the receptionist's feedback on saline vs silicone over the phone. It made me already feel very defensive. She hadn't seen me, heard my story etc. but the surgeon and his assistant definitely made up for her faults. I ended up choosing them to do my surgery. They were professional and also had great bedside manner. I was very relaxed and comfortable when talking and explaining what I was looking for.
I really liked the surgeon and he sounds like he can give me what I want. I wanted multiple procedures and he would be able to do it all in one operation. All the staff seemed very friendly and concerned for my well being and giving me the best possible results.
It was perfect. Everything went well and the staff have been amazing so far.
The staff at the practice were very kind and helpful without judgement. The patient coordinator I met and the surgeon were both very knowledgeable and approachable.
Always interested in my needs and what will look good on me.
Due to confidence. I have confidence in Dr. Raphael's ability and feel confident in his work. Unless another Dr. in his field was recommended by Dr. Raphael, I don't know that I would consider having this procedure done by anyone else. I have made an appointment to go with the procedure recommended, for the middle of Dec. My friend that drove me for the consultant decided that the quote she received was not cost effective, and will seek a local Dr, should she decide to have the Lipo.procedure. I must find someone to take me and pick me up after surgery. We have no children and my husband is 90 years old with dementia. If I can't find someone to transport me back and forth, I will have to post-pone the procedure, which will be very disappointing. Although, I dislike having to ask others to take time out of their busy schedule, hopefully, I will locate someone to do that.
The overall experience was AMAZING from start to finish! Very personable staff and I love Dr. Raphael! I'm extremely pleased with the results and will be coming back to finish!! I would recommend them to anyone!! They are hands down incredible!
I thought the surgeon and staff did a great job of making me feel comfortable. they presented themselves in a professional manner, I liked that I did not feel rushed in any way. Each staff member was very friendly and encouraging.
explained everything and answered every question that i had.
I was impressed by the relaxing environment, the friendliness, helpfulness, and courtesy of the entire staff, and most importantly by Dr. Raphael who made me feel like a beautiful person already.
I have used Dr. Raphael for all of my plastic surgery needs for the last 12 years. I have moved away and other surgeons are much closer to my home , but I have so much trust in Dr. Raphael and his amazing staff that I travel the distance to use them .
I was treated with complete respect
Doctor Rafael was the most wonderful, caring doctor there is. I highly enjoyed my time with him. I'll definitely go back if I have another dilemma
Everyone was very professional and kknowledgeable on the procedures I was considering having done. I was able to make a well informed decision. I was not pressured in any way I feel very comfortable with the decisions I have made to do my procedures.
Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. I really loved the surgeon, his knowledge, and his bedside manner. It is an exceptional organization and I intend to come back as often as needed and I have recommend them to others interested in the same type procedures.
The consult was very informative, Catherine eased my fear of being nauseous for the anesthesia and pain meds, she assured me that this issue would be taken care of even before the surgery. I have to admit I was very nervous to even think about surgery, it usually someone else in my family needing surgery and me taking care of them. By the end I did feel more at ease by Catherine and Dr Raphael.
Consultation appointments readily available. Patient consultant very friendly and available for any questions before and after consultation. Dr made you feel very at ease while gathering information and informative about procedure.
I got his name as a referral from a friend and previous patient
I was comfortable, everyone I interacted with was friendly and I set up an appointment a week or so after! It was great!
Dr. Raphael was very nice and respectful!
Dr. Raphael is a highly skilled surgeon who listens arefully to the patients desire. I was very impressed with how relaxed he made me feel, and how he recommended without pushing. In the end he worked within what my vision was but with his expert touch.
The surgeon was very amicable and respectful. Everyone in office was very upbeat and professional. I left with no question unanswered and a clear plan for setting my surgery. I received a folder with vital information to take home and look over and was contacted promptly afterward to answer any further questions. This was the best experience that I've had at a surgery consult which is what prompted me to decide on surgery here.
I felt Dr Raphael and his staff were highly helpful. I did develop a minor complication, but his staff were easy to contact and promptly returned any calls. He completed a revisional surgery at no charge to me and I will need a second also at no charge. This being said I still am extremely satisfied, and glad I chose him for my surgery.
I was highly satisified because I have had a horrific surgery experience in the past, which made me go into complete panic attack when I went to have a hysterectomy years later. I thought I might have this problem again, but the kindness & privacy & gentleness I experienced here, I was fine. The only time I thought I might have a panic attack was the pre-op pictures. That can be debilitating for people who are insecure about their bodies, especially when we've had a baby that severely alters our appearance. I knew it was necessary, just wish that part of the process was a little faster. Other than that, I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Raphael & his staff & so did my husband. When you have a bad experience, it makes a great experience even greater. My fear of doctors & surgery kept me from this procedure for years...I wish I had only known of Dr. Raphael sooner, I felt completely safe & completely respected & I will use them again when or if I decide to do anything else to myself. They are a God-send!!
I read a few reviews on the clinic online and one of the high points was how wonderful the staff was and how comfortable they made their patients feel during the entire process and procedure. The surgeon (Dr.Raphael) for this specific procedure (double incision mastectomy) is, in my opinion, one of the very best in the U.S. - not a whole lot of images of his work out there but I was sold at the consultation. The attentiveness and caring of the staff could be felt and his Senior Patient Consultant (Catherine Walker) was extremely helpful in answering questions and working with me to schedule appointments.My sincerest thanks to the staff!
The Doctor and the staffs were very professional And friendly.
My brother in law, Rene Wolf who was a physician and was from Panama recommended Dr. Rafael to me years ago. Since then I have recommended him to a couple of my friends and I have talked to him twice about the procedure I want and he has always been very professional and make you feel comfortable.
I brought in a list of questions, the nurse and the surgeon took the time to answer all of them
Dr. Raphael was very professional, honest and caring. He and his staff did not rush and made me feel like they truly cared without being condescending or overly sweet.
All staff members were great and welcoming. The facility is state of the art, very nice. I will highly recommend the facility to all my friends and family.
I was shown kindness and warmth by surgeon and nursing staff. I was given full explanations at every phase of my surgery and I was completely comfortable.
Very friendly, professional
Raphael is amazing! This is my second time to use him and I wouldn't go to anyone else!
I was referred here by a friend that has had many procedures done and she was very satisfied. So I went and having no other frame of reference for plastic surgery I had no reason to be dissatisfied.
I am a previous patient and had great results. I find the doctor caring and personable. The nurses are the best ever. The pricing is very competitive.
I really feel very comfortable with this Doctor he is one of the best in this state! I have had many things done by him and he makes me HAPPY and I love his staff with that being said I will continue doing business with him tell he retires.
I had a mastectomy. The staff and doctors were all friendly, respectful and went far above and beyond what they needed to do to help me.
I was highly satisfied with my experience because I showed up to my consultation an hour early and didn't have to wait for my scheduled time. I was a little a nervous at first but both consultant and surgeon were so laid back and easy to talk to, it made me feel comfortable. After it was all said and done, I left with way more confidence.
I had a facelift with Dr Raphael. I had one previously with him twelve years ago. The results were perfect, exactly as I had hoped and requested of him. The facelift twelve years ago was also very satisfactory. I leave it to Dr Raphael to decide what to do and how to do it, as he knows best; the only request I made was to please not overdo it i.e. not stretch my mouth across my face. Nor did he - results were perfect; comments I have had from friends are that my complexion looks better, (because loose skin has gone). It is not evident that I have had surgery, simply that my face looks younger.Nurses are excellent; I liaised with two, one was Debbie. Cannot recall name of the nurse who overnighted with me. Both nurses were really good, kind, informative, helpful and professional.
I was satisfied with the way the surgeon took time to explain the procedure and answer specific questions that I had.
Dr. Raphael and Ms. Catherine were both helpful and friendly. They made the experience very personable yet easy going. I was able to ask any questions without hesitation. Ms. Catherine is very accommodating in answering my questions post-consultation and scheduling my next visits/procedure date. I would definitely recommend Dr. Raphael to my family and friends!!
Catherine and Dr. Raphael made me feel at ease about the procedure. Dr. Raphael genuinely cares, and was knowledgable.
Dr. Raphael was wonderful. He understood exactly what we (my daughter and I) both wanted and provided exactly what was discussed. The staff is pleasant, friendly and very helpful.I would recommend Dr. Raphael to anyone that was looking to have a procedure done.
I had a Double Mastectomy with free nipple graft. Overall I am really happy with everything. The staff were wonderful and answered all of my questions. They were really friendly and put me at ease. Basically they were with me every step of the way. I simply can not begin to put into words how grateful I am for Dr. Raphael. The man is an extremely talented surgeon and he saved my life. I couldn't be happier with the results.
I did rhinoplasty and liposuction and I saw the results very fast. My nose looks great and so does my body. All my friends tell me I look different in a good way and that I look skinnier! I can finally wear a bikini now! I am very happy with the results!
The surgeon and staff listened carefully did everything possible to ensure that my desires were attained. They communicated with me often and thouroughly. I couldn't be happier with the results!
DOCOTR AND AISSISTANT WAS VERY FRIENDLY MADE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE DURING CONSULATION
My surgeon was so caring and sensitive, not the typical personality of surgeons in my experience.
The Doctor and staff are amazing! Totally trust the Doctor! 2nd time to use him and will be back!
The surgeon and his team are great...
No reason...I just dont give out highly satisfieds...
Physician and staff were very attentive to my surgery questions, etc. I had previous procedures performed by Dr. Raphael and, as before, everything went as planned. Still in recovery and anticipating a very satisfactory result.
Excellent doctor and staff. Results are amazing on how well the procedures look only after 3 months. Highly recommend facility and doctor to others!
Everything look very natural and nice
Very friendly, helpful - clean, comfortable.
The doctor and staff was very friendly, no one pressured me to go ahead and have the procedure done. I was very happy with my experience, I will be getting the procedure done within 6 months. THANKS
I was highly satisfied, so I must have marked something wrong. This is my second breast job by this doc. He's wonderful!
I have known Dr Raphael for several years. He has been the most artful, and truly gifted plastic surgeon I have dealt with. I have been pleased for the most part with all of the procedures I have had. I am looking forward to my date with him
Previously, I have had surgery with Dr. Raphael and have great appreciation for his skills and being able to anticipate what surgery needs to be performed. In short...Dr. Raphael has kept me looking as good on the outside as I feel on the inside. Also, Catherine has been available to help me work through any problems or issues I might have. The team is top-notch.
Results of surgery
great staff and explanation was excellent!!!Doctor was very informative.
From beginning to end. The consultation was very informative, the follow up was amazing, the post op was easy breezy. It was the best surgery experience I have received. I didn't even have to wait for the doctor before my surgery!!! AMAZING! The doctor has the best bedside manner ever.
All my questions were answered. The surgon was very patient and explained everything. Followup after the surgery was exceptional. Everyone at the facility was wonderful. They were all very freindly and made me feel very comfortable.
I am looking to get a tummy tuck and breat reduction/lift/augmentation. Everyone who participated in my consultation made me feel very comfortable. I am really excited about having the procedures done. Plan on getting it done in October.
Overall very pleased with the outcome. Would like a couple minor tweeks but will discuss with doctor at next visit. Great staff, great doctor. Would most definitely use again and recommend to others.
I thought that they would have/could have sucked up more than just four pounds of fat.
I felt the Dr. and his staff were friendly and made my husband and myself feel very comfortable. They answered every question we had and we didnt feel like we were rushed in any way. I felt that we were made to feel special, and left feeling confident about having my procedure there.
I am a nurse and because of that tend to be very critical of care I receive. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr Raphael and his wonderful staff.I have received such wonderful care during my recovery and am completely satisfied with the results of my surgery. I appreciate all the hard work each of them have done to make this experience such a positive one. All my friends who see me are amazed at the results of my surgery and always ask me for my surgeons name and I always give him a great recommendation.... Thank you all so much for making my dream a reality.
Everyone was very friendly and quite informative, The Dr did not only speak to me but my husband as well, He's very personable and made both of us feel very comfortable.
Dissatisfied with waiting time after check in. My waiting time was over 30 minutes. Not a good first impression with receptionist. Left before consult and did not reschedule.
i love dr raphael and katherine
I was treated with respect and dignity.
Not sure it takes a lot to impress me everything was nice and everyone was friendly enough
Both Catherine and Dr Raphael were great. They seemed to remember me even though my last visit was many years ago. They still had my chart. Both were great in explaining the face lift procedure. Dr Raphael recommended some additional procedures that I did not know about that I am strongly considering. The entire experience was pleasant.
Friendly staff and very informative and clean. The doctor was very concerned with my needs and request to better my body.
After surgery really numb emotionally and not sure accelerated my menopause...my boyfriend told me I would feel this emotional based on what the nurses told him in recovery. I don't recall a lot of discussion on recovery as far as lack of emotion and not sure if it is just menopause?? Healing time? Activity walking pulling hurts? maybe it is my age? Not sure.
I have called back and rescheduled appointment for procedure and have was scheduled and already done the procedure and Highly satified with the staff and the great care they provided.
The overall knowledge of the staff & Doc where top level.
Everyone was very friendly and very accommodating. I had some problems with my insurance co. The day before surgery. The staff took care of everything .
The concern and detail to make sure I understood every aspect. Very well train staff
I felt extremely comfortable; very warm atmosphere. The people I dealt with were friendly and put me at ease. I felt listened to. I had some questions after. I called and Catherine responded promptly and advised me to come back with my questions to resolve any concerns.
very professional with dedicated and caring individuals
Loved, loved Dr. Raphael and his staff :0) really liked my surgery nurse and so glad I found this office.
The experience itself was great but, based on the before/after images sent to me the recommended procedures were not inkeeping with the results I am looking for.
Really? Not enough space here! Dr. Raphael is not only a surgeon; he is a dedicated and considerate human being who is truly in love with the art of helping others achieve their best appearance and emotional well-being. I have not been able to get any more procedures done because I was using my funds to help my daughter finish school. However, it is my turn to look and feel great! I KNOW that Dr. R. and the staff are on my corner.
The staff was very friendly, caring, and thorough.
Reasons why we are highly satisfied- recommendation of or doctor- avalaibility of the persons- clear explanations bu the team- discount of the fee (higher discount should be appreciate)
Dr. Raphael and his staff took amazing care of me before, during and after my surgery. They managed my pain long after the surgery and has been so supportive in my recovery. I will never go anywhere else. I chose Dr. Raphael after several interviews with different doctors and he truly lives up to his reputation and his word.
I loved how knowledgable my surgeon was and how comfortable he made me feel. I didn't even feel the need for a second consult with another PS but did so just for comparison. The staff is great, the facility is beautiful and so clean, and the price was probably the most reasonable I've heard of. I love my results and my husband ,who didn't even care if I had surgery or not, loves my new body. I've already recommended my surgeon to family and friends and if I ever consider another plastic surgery, Dr. Peter Raphael will be my choice.
I was very nervouse but once I met everyone, they made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Peter Raphael was very lovely and he gave me options of what I wanted to do and did not try and sell me on one thing or another.
Dr. Raphael and his staff were very helpful during my consultation. They listened to my concerns and answered my questions as well as put me at ease.
I maybe did not hear or information maybe was not given, in regards to what to expect after surgery. Didn't fully understand the ears would be so involved. unable to sleep on side. I just thought more information of the recovery could have been explained in more detail. Overall, things were good.
Very friendly & informative surgeon and staff. I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery and recovery was very easy.
I feel that being satisfied", is not a bad thing. One reason I was not "very satisfied" is because, people today, donot go "above and beyond" what they do for others. So, to rate anything today, "very satisfied", will take alot more than what is expected. My experience was good. I got what I expected. Anything more than that, is like I stated before, very hard to do! One way things would have been different in the ratings department, would have been an easy enough fix, and also made a big different, and which,( I have made mention of before), that is: to make the silicone tape Mepitac available to patience without there being an extra cost. This alone, would have scored big, in my opinion!!! But, by there being an extra charge for something that the doctors know would aid my situation more, yet, did not make it readily availble to me, that to me spells greed, and not concern for my full wellbeing."
My mother knows Doctor Raphael and she loves him.She recommends him to all her friends and family. When she gets ready to do her work done she will go there. Thank you
I think Satisfied is very suffient for my expectations. Highly satisfied to me is going above and beyond and that is not what I felt. I was very pleased with my visit other than the long wait time in the waiting room. I was told I would get a discount for my procedure for my long wait time. :)
Everything was explained to me in a professional manner by Dr and staff. I have never had any surgery like this and was very nervous-everyone made me feel very comfortable and eased my nerves.
Friendly staff and Dr Raphael was nice and informative
It was an overall amazing experience. The doctors and nurses for everything we very helpful and made recovery easy.
Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and most important - did not seem to be in a hurry to rush me through the process.
I felt very comfortable and like I was truly listened to by both the surgeon and the coordinator. I wasn't pushed to make a different decision. I appreciated that the most.
I love more feminine and younger. I now look like I feel and that is AMAZING!
My friend had her breast augmentation almost 12 years ago and they still look perfect! That was enough for me to know what a great surgeon Dr. Raphael is!!
I AM highly satisfied with this experience and this doctor.
Dr. Raphael and his entire staff were so incredibly respectful, helpful, and knowledgeable. I was so comfortable for every step of my surgical procedure, beginning with my consultation. I am so happy with the results and how quickly I recovered. This was my first surgical experience and I can say confidently that I would choose AI4PS for any surgeries in the future.
Staff (including surgeon) is very accomodating and willing to spend as much time as needed to answer all of your questions and/or concerns.
Made me feel comfortable discussing my body, my expectations, and realistic outcomes. Great advice and credible information.
They really care about you. Dr. Raphael and his whole staff are awesome !
The coordinator was very thorough and the doctor was very thorough as well. The appointment times and availability was also a plus.
Dr. Raphael and my patient consultant Catherine made me feel completely comfortable with their knowledge, experience, and personal attention to my questions and concerns. My husband and I felt so comfortable that we didn't even care for a second consult with another surgeon but did just to have a comparison and completely reaffirmed that Dr. Raphael was the right surgeon for me.
I felt like Dr Raphael really cared about me and listened to my concerns. There was no pressure to proceed with the surgery.
Professional service by the sweetest people and I feel fabulous! :)
EVERYONE was so friendly and professional!
Dr. Raphael and his staff are very professional and made me feel like family. I was pleased with the suggestions the Dr recommended verses what I thought I needed. I would use Dr. Raphael again for any of my or my families needs. Thank you Dr and Staff! Sonia was the nurse that stayed with me the night of my procedure and she was WONDERFUL.. Thank you Sonia!!!
Overall it was a great experience. No problems at all.
I was highly satisfied.
Other than my experience with the nurse and the iv event, everything about my surgery, before and after has been wonderful.
Wait time before procedure was a bit too long! Breast shape after 12 weeks is still not round and one side of tummy tuck has loose skin where lipo was preformed.
Dr Raphael did exactely what I wanted. He listened to his patients et do a wonderfull job.
I am very impressed with the Surgeon and nurse. I just haven't been able to communicate with the Nurse when i called back for questions . I understood she would call me in regards to schedule change. I called on a Friday, maybe you close early???
I just love Dr. Rapheal and all the nurses. They just made me feel so important and beautiful even before my surgery. The outcome of my surgery has left my breasts looking so much better and younger. Thank you to all!!
Everyone I met and had contact with was very friendly from the start. I felt very comfortable with the staff and the doctor during the consultation.
The staff here is amazing as well as Dr. Rafael
Very professional, knowledgeable, polite, overall a fantastic experience. Will use the same Dr. for any future needs........
Dr. Rafael's bedside manner was excellent! He also did not sugar-coat anything and was very honest about the procedure. The staff was exceptional. Many staff members even had their surgeries performed by Dr. Rafael and told me about their experiences which made me feel very comfortable with my decision. Dr. Rafael told me to have patience during my recovery. I am very satisfied with the final results!
Highly Satisfied with it all! Everything and Everyone were wonderful to me!! -Thank You!
Everyone was really nice, answer all the questions I had and give me advices about my procedure. Definitly will refer to friends and family!
No follow up - have not heard anything since consultation - no prices , no information at all. MBefore my consultation, I tried to use the website to make an appt & get more info - no one ever contacted me. I had to call the office
Everyone at the facility was so nice and took time to make you feel very comfortable with the procedure. Lisa my nurse was really great about keeping my friend informed of how I was doing before she picked me up. She then took several calls from my friend after taking me home when she had questions about what I was experiencing. Every time I come in all the staff are really great.
I felt like I received excellent courtesy and attention, but most of all I felt I got excellent quality results from a highly skilled surgeon. I have seen quite a few other women who had somewhat botched results.
From the time I submitted an inquiry on the website till now, everyone that I have been in contact with has been very buttoned up and very professional. Everything was described to me in as much (or little :-) detail as I wanted (and/or was comfortable hearing). There were no surprises thankfully - I attribute that to the staff that worked with me through this surgery process (they all knew what they were doing and were very helpful). I would definitely recommend Dr. Rafael and his team to anyone considering a procedure like mine.
From the initial contact with the patient coordinator to Dr Raphael and back to check out, everyone was so friendly but yet professional. I haven't had surgery since i was 6 so I was extremely nervous. Feeling like my concerns were heard and just the warmth of the staff, not to mention the referrals I've received regarding Dr Raphael played an instrumental part in making my decision to go through with Dr Peter Raphael.
When ever I had a question regarding anything concerning my surgery and recovery the doctor and nurses were always available .
Dr Raphael and his staff were amazing! Dr Raphel not only had to do major work on me, he was correcting two previous surgeries gone bad by another plastic surgeon. I recevied the best experience and results ever by Dr Raphael and his entire team.
I was very nervous... Never have done anything like this before -the staff and Dr made it a lot easier to feel comfortable in the decision I was going to make.
From the initial phone call I made to the many calls I've made even after my consultation, the staff's consistent warmth and level of customer remains above. I can sense the smile through the phone. Customer service is so important. I feel very comfortable with the whole process and I never feel as though I'm bothering them.
the staff was kind, I didnt have to wait more then 5 mins, the Dr took his time with me
The staff was very nice and so was dr Raphael I got a lot of information can't wait to have my surgery done i feel like i'm in good hands
I was comfortable with the doctor and coordinator. I really appreciated the doctor explaining his suggestions on procedures and reassuring me that he was enhancing my body, not changing it. He was very warm and personable, like we were old friends, but still maintained complete professional composure. It really impressed me, and was one of the reasons I will most likely be scheduling with him over the doctors I consulted with. Another reason I plan on working with him is his confidence in which procedures would work best with me and their likely outcomes in my situation. He was just really positive and supportive about the whole thing, and everything combined made the overall experience great for me.
I have been a patient of Dr Rafael since 1998 and I always have been very satisfied in anyways by his kindness, his great experience and the time he spend to explain to you any questions you may have. His staff is outstanding and take good care of you. I will go back to Dr Rafael as long as I will need his services.
i didn't know what to expect, and everyone was very professional and nice. exceeded my expectations.
Dr. Raphael and staff were amazing in all aspects. I feel like family anytime I go to the office. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Raphael to my friends and family.
The actual cost is going to be double what I was quoted on the phone due to specific issues. I received another quote from a very experienced, and well respected surgeon, that was $1000. less than Dr Raphael. I would rather have Dr. Raphael do the surgery as he did a previous breast augmentation. I am waiting to see if he can match the other quote. If he can, I will schedule the surgery for the middle of Dec. If he can't, I will have to go with the other surgeon.
Dr. Raphael is wonderful.
Dr.Raphael spent lots of time with us. He understood exactly what I wanted done to my face. (Ihope).
Dr. Raphael was sensitive to me needs, and listened to my concerns. I can't help thinking that he possibly recommended too many procedures to be done. It is always a great dilemma ascertaining wether a superfluous number of procedures are recommended for personal gains or for the patient's benefit. Overall I truly found him very agreeable.
Dr. Raphael made me very comfortable with the surgery as well as his skill in his practice. He is very personable and I love my nurse Lori as well. Great team I have recommended two individual since my surgery and hopefully they will go through with the procedure!!!
I felt very comfortable talking about what procedures I was considering. Dr. Raphael and Catherine were very informative and clear about each procedure and I felt no pressure to move forward with my decision. When I called back with questions Catherine did great answering my questions and putting any concerns I had to rest. I did schedule my procedures and I am very comfortable with the decisions I have made. I'm looking forward to seeing the new me!
Everyone was very helpful and informational. At no point did I feel uncomfortable. I wanted breast reconstruction, hernia repair w/ opt abdominoplasty, and a Rhinoplasty with correction to my turbinates and septum. I had interviewed serval other surgeons who quite honestly made me feel that I NEEDED all of these procedures & many others just to LOOK good. Dr. Raphael didn't come across like that at all. In fact he was very complimentary suggesting that I didn't need a few of the procedures! Rarely, do you find that in a plastic surgeon. Dr. Raphael and his team are top notch and we already have referred him.I am now 2 weeks recovering from my procedures and feel great with all of the outcomes as far. The follow up has been impeccable! THANK YOU,
people talking about their issues.
Dr. Raphael is a phenomenal surgeon that I trust. His attention to detail and perfection is evident not only in the way he presents information to a patient during his consultation but it is also consistent with his top notch, high quality results. I truly believe he is not only a great surgeon but it is his artist flair that differentiates him to truly understand the precision that is necessary to get fantastic result versus a good result.
Very friendly doctor and staff
Just great customer service and security about the information and procedures being performed.
My procedures were to reconstruction two previous unsatisfactory breast lift and aug procedures with a different surgeon! We (my fiance and I) were so impressed with Dr Raphael and Catherine to the point the we scheduled my procedure, had procedure done, am at two weeks post op. I am ecstatic with the the entire care of treatment I have received. I had consulted with Dr Raphael some years back and regret that I did not use him in the two prior services! I will assure that he will be the last and only Plastic Surgeon. He and Catherine made me feel like they had all the time in the world and were truly empathetic to my plight! I'm looking forward to my 2 week post op appt. Thank you for the opportunity to speak my mind!
You survey does not really apply to those who have had work done by the physicians in this practice. I have already experienced the great work and service from Dr. Raphael and his staff.
Thank you for your kind heart and your expertise.
Dr Raphael and his entire staff are awesome. I will definitely recommend to my friends and family.
I initially contacted the company through email and received a phone call back that same day to discuss what I was looking to have done, give me more information, and schedule a consultation. Everyone I spoken with so far seems very buttoned up, helpful, and knowledgeable about the procedure that I was interested in. I was nervous at first but after the consultation I'm not nervous at all. Just very excited.
Just loved Dr Raphael, his sensitivity and his knowledge base were very comforting.Katherine was very helpful and sweet, too. They both did their best to inform me and make me feel comfortable about a verypersonal and difficult decision.
The staff was incredibly nice and Dr. Raphael was everything I needed him to be since this was my first surgery. When I had my incision open him and his team made me feel much better an calmed my nerves. They had me come in once a week to check on me and eventually I healed.
Dr Raphael made my entire experience. He has amazing bedside manner. He didn't make me feel inadequate. He was very personable & extremely informative during my consultation.
After visiting several surgeons for consultations Dr. Raphael was the last one I saw and was referred to me at the last minute. I immediately felt at ease and confortable with him. I originally went in to discuss a tummy tuck and breast lift/augmentation and he's the only surgeon that asked if I had considered a full lower body lift. I had lost a lot of weight and after talking to him decided that was the best choice for me and I have never regretted it. I am so extremely happy with the results. I had additional liposuction in a few areas a year after the body lift and again had a great experience. Lori was my main nurse and she is fantastic. The rest of the staff is also very friendly and welcoming. Overall what could have been a very scary process turned out to be just the opposite. Thank you Dr. Raphael and team!
Dr. Raphael was very engaging, funny and very easy to talk to. He is a great doctor and an artist which I think makes an excellent surgeon.
Dr. Raphael was very kind and informative. There was no surprises.
Mostly because no one paid attention to my throat being swelled shut after the surgery. Also, My implants are 2 different sizes and they look uneven. The scar is too high, he should have cut lower where they would fall once I had more weight. I have two scars high above where a (crease) could ever form, but probably will not. Overall they look good in my clothes, which is what i wanted, and the Doc was very nice, but i don't think he should have put a larger implant in one side they are still uneven after fat injections to the smaller side, it is still smaller.
I was terrified about getting surgery but Dr. Rafael and his staff helped me feel at ease. This was the best experience I've had and am saving up for my next procedure. I loved it!!! Thanks so much!!
Dr. Raphael and Catherine make a great team. They were very informative and friendly. Dr. Raphael came highly recommended from personal friends who have used him before.
The overall procedure was very satisfactory. The staff and surgeon have been very courteous and their expertise was very apparent. I am very satisfied with the result of my surgery.
They explain the process very clear and positiveMy question were answere very clear and satisfactoryNursing, staff and enviroment were highly respectfull and frendly
All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. I felt very relaxed and confident in the skills of Dr. Raphel and his staff. All of my questions were anwered prior to surgery and the day of the surgery went great. I love my results and even the follow up has been great!
Dr. Raphael is personable, kind, and knowledgeable. He did an OUTSTANDING job with my breasts. I used to hate them, but now my boobs are my FAVORITE part of my body. He's the best plastic surgeon around town!! Thank you doc!!!!!
I had an FTM mastectomy. As an transgender male, finding a hospital/clinic staff that is respectful and understanding is hard. This clinic is top notch when it comes to respecting their patients needs.
I really liked Dr.Peter Rapahel!!! Very good professional!!!
Sister had a great experience 11 years ago; her breasts look amazing. I also had a great experience.
The surgeon was top notch in every step in the process. The facility was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, professional and responsive to me. The results exceeded my expectations.
I was referred by a friend. The Dr and the nurses, faculty could not have made me feel more comfortable or more important! They were fabulous! I have referred the doctor over and over and will continue to do so!!!!! Thank you
The energy from the whole staff was amazing! There is nothing I could of wanted to be different about the whole experience!
Overall knowledge of my particular situation and willingness to help. The location from my home was reasonably close. The price was very affordable. The staff was very helpful and very considerate of my situation.
I absolutely love Dr. Raphael, he is highly skilled and very personable. My left implant was damaged during radiation and I was referred to Dr. Dulin, he is also a wonderful part of the team. Unfortunately, there were no stitches or staples put in to keep the pocket intact. My breast looked better, but was now lower then the other and was higher when first entering surgery. It has continually fallen and I'm not sure if there is anything that could have been done to prevent it during this particular surgery. Overall, I am very satisfied. I just wanted you to have my sincere feedback. I have referred several friends to Dr. Raphael, he's the best!
I returned to Dr. Raphael as he had performed my breasat augmentation several years before. The entire team there is fanatastic -professional, caring, and knowledgeable. I knew there would be no better choice than Dr. Raphael for my tummy tuck and lipo; the results are phenomenal - you can barely see the scars and it has been only 18 months since the procedure. They were available to me when I had questions/concerns late at night. I had done several consultations with supposedly some of the best in Dallas" when interviewing doctors for my breast augmentation. Dr. Raphael was the only one geniunely intertested in my questions and concerns and didn't make me feel as though I was in an assembly line for surgery. He has a great bedside manner with his patients. I would consider noone else for future procedures and I loudly sing his praises to anyone who asks about who my doctor was. "
Very professional, cleanliness of the facility and great staff.
my surgery increased my self esteem and made me feel beautiful again. EVERYONE was so nice and helpful. please refer to my thank you letter I mailed in after my recovery.
I had experienced a problem with an implant that was done in Kansas City and the office was very helpful in working with me making necessary contacts to receive information about the implant to see if there was a warranty to help out with the costs.Everyone is so kind and helpful every time that I come in for follow up appointments. I am very impressed with all the staff and especially the doctor.We are so satisfied that we have scheduled another procedure for my daughter.I have absolutely no complaints.
Dr. Raphael was wonderful...I will be having additional surgery in the very near future and I know I will be just as satisfied as I was this last time. The staff was the best! Thank you so much for the excellent experience.
Both the physician and staff were extremely professional, calming and efficient with all my concerns.
i believe he is the best plastic surgeon for my needs.
My abs look GREAT!
For the most part, I reported that I am Highly Satisfied with the experience. I have only improved since being in Dr. Raphael's hands. There is no other person I would trust at this point with my specific concerns and I would not seek any other facility to address them. I feel that I am very close to achieving completion with my aesthetic goals. This is after a long road of restoring basic normal appearance and functionality to the face and mouth area after severe disfigurement from trauma I endured before seeing Dr. Raphael at the American Institute of Plastic Surgery, after being referred by a family member about three years ago. I believe he is a miracle worker and it is appropriate he shares a name with one of the Bible's archangels. All I can say is I am so very, very thankful to him. I do think he is getting busy enough that perhaps he needs more than one patient consultant because sometimes it takes a long time to hear back from the office after placing calls to get an appointment. Other than that- Gold Stars all the way. Thank you for your interest in my satisfaction level. I just love you -what can I say?
This is my 3rd procedure with Dr. Raphael. I have been very Satisfied with all procedures. He is very personable, understanding and friendly. His staff is very attentive to all my needs and concerns.I enjoy all my visits with him. The results are always Amazing! I send people to him all the time. My best friend had a breast lift with him after seeing my results. She too is very happy with her results.
Skilled surgeon. Listens to his patience. Respectful. Always know I'm in the best possible care.
I had heard very good things about Dr. Raphael prior to my surgery. When I met with Dr. Raphael I was totally convinced that he was completely empathetic, highly skilled, and perhaps most importantly, he has the sensibility of a true artist. When you put all those together in the person of a plastic surgeon you know you have a winning combination. Dr. Raphael has a big heart, skilled hands, and a profound sense of aesthetics. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering any kind of aesthetic surgical procedure.
Very professional, made me feel comfortable and excited about my procedure, amazing results
I filled out a questionnaire (on my second post-operative visit) and gave it to dr. Raphael who distributed it to all persons involved in my surgery from my consultant Catherine to my overnight nurse. my overall care was nothing but exceptional from the time I had my first consult to the present day (I just passed my ninth week after my operation). I really want you to locate my handwritten comment sheets (two pages) as it was a glowing report and read it, and please make sure that the powers that be" read it as every word i wrote came straight from my heart. Dr. Raphael and his staff are THE VERY BEST!!!!"
I love Dr Raphael, he has had my life better!!!
I immediately felt very welcome and comfortable. Patient coordinator made me feel right at home". Dr. Rafael , is so easy to talk to, made me feel like an old friend. very warm I will reccomend him to all my friends
My overall experience with my consultation was not only very informative, but also motivating! The entire staff was very professional and knowledgeable, and the pictures of the before and after’s were not only beautiful work, but of pictures that were parallel to my starting circumstances as well as desired results. I will definitely schedule my procedure to be completed soon!
I have had prior experience with this surgeon and staff. I totally trust and recommend them to any of my friends that wish to have a procedure.
The receptionist did not explain the qualifications of the doctor because I had already had a procedure performed by him.The before and after book only had a few tummy tuck pictures and I would have preferred to see more.Dr. Raphael and his staff were amazing as always!!!
the whole office staff, nurses and the surgeon were awesome and was always willing to answer questions I had.
I was pleased with the quality of the get to know" video for the Doctor on the website. Consult: His initial approach was more conservative than I expected. He didn't push other procedures. I believe he listened to (and truly heard) my thoughts and questions and I left with the confidence that he is the right surgeon.It was also important that he invited me to bring my husband in with me on another consult. "
Listened well, informative, took time with me, I did not feel rushed, attentive, professional and caring
I have seen Dr. Raphael's work. He did my lips and my sister's nose. He is just a great guy and I am very comfortable with him!
I have felt completely confident in and comfortable with Dr. Raphael from my initial consultation many years ago, and that is why I continue to see him for my cosmetic surgical needs.
Dr Raphael and his staff were amazing and made me very comfortable.
I filled out a written survey after my surgery. It should be on file. I wrote a very long comment (filled the short space on the front and continued on the back of the survey sheet, filling the whole page). In short, I was so happy w/EVERYONE with whom I came in contact from the first consultation to my two follow-up visits after my surgery. PLEASE read that survey. I meant every word I wrote, and I'd love for all concerned to read it and for it to be on file. GO DR. RAPHAEL AND HIS WHOLE TEAM (which turned out to be MY TEAM")!!! Thank y'all so much!"
The entire practice was friendly, informative and I felt welcomed. They reassured me and made me feel comfortable.
I was having artefill injections and it was painless, little or no bruising afterwards and I have complete confidence in Lori to address whatever issue I am trying to improve with the filler. She, also, always tells me what she is going to do before doing it and I never feel like she is rushing or that I don't have her complete attention. Considering that this filler can have permanent results, I think that is critical.
Very informative, friendly and made me feel at ease.
I have been taken care of by Dr. Raphael for about 18 years now. He has always treated me with respect and understanding. With four children, I've found it hard at times to afford the surgeries I've wanted, but Dr. Raphael has always made it affordable for me. It's evident that he truly cares for his patients. His staff is wonderful. It must be a great place to work because I've seen alot of the same faces over the years. I dread the day that Dr. Raphael retires!
I felt as if the surgeon works in a rush. It felt like a factory. He spent maybe 10 minutes with me when other surgeons spend about a half hour with a patient. He never askedwhat do you want?"He spoke quickly saying some girls want this and some want that... Spoke so fast that he would not even give me a chance to say what I wanted nor did he seem to care. I spent more time with his assistants which made me feel that if there was a problem he would be no where to be found. He also said I would be in and out of surgery in 2 hours. Other surgeons have estimated 3 to four times longer. I just felt that he rushes through his work."
Dr. Raphael is very skilled and my pain was negligible, especially when compared to last time. I had no problems. Everyone was very good to me and caring.
Dr. Rapahel and his staff did an exceptional job at making me feel comfortable. I have seen his work with other family members and members of his team. He is an amazing surgeon and i would suggest him to all of my friends and family.
Everyone was very friendly and informative. It was a great experience. I am very excited about scheduling my surgery.
Dr. Raphael was very considerate and explained everything very well to me and was so upbeat that i left his office smiling from ear to ear and thinking to myself that i am worth having my body back in shape like it should be. He made me feel so comfortable and possitive. His patient coordinator Catherine was awesome as well, she was always very possitive and helped me in every way to get this surgery done so I could feel good about myself for once and the two nurses that talked to me, Lori and I don't remember the other ladies name but they were both very informative and helpful as well. I was 100\% pleased with everyone in Dr. Raphael's office. If I ever need anything else done I will for sure being going back and I will highly recommend him to anyone!!! Thanks so much to the whole team for making me feel good about myself and about my surgery!!! I'm very very pleased. :)
Dr Raphael has done work on both my daughters and they are very satisfied. I feel very confident in him. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to pay for the procedure.
Patient coordinator did not follow up/return my calls/e-mails in a timely professional manner. Otherwise, the whole experience was highly satisfactory.
Felt like staff and doctors were very knowledgeable. Clean, friendly, warm atmosphere. Extreme comfortable asking question and felt like staff was very trustworthy
Dr Raphael was honest with me and told me that the procedure I adamently wanted, breast plant removal, is not what I needed. He told me I needed a breast lift and was willing to lose my business. He was so right and I am extremely happy.
Great Experience is all I can say. Everyone involved were the Best. Thank You and I will come again for future surgery:)
I was well taken care of and my results were outstanding!
Dr. Raphael did an excellent job in the entire process.
I just got exactly what I wanted.
Great experience with staff, Doctor, building, waiting room, and parking, but this survey is highly repetitious and way too long!!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Raphael since 2000 and had this procedure performed in 2001. I was extremely satisfied by the work done by Dr. Raphael (so much so that I am now willing to commute from my new home in NC returning to Plano to have this procedure updated). I actually would not have the procedure done by anyone but him. Through the years since the surgery, I have received numerous compliments on the work done and have referred friends and relatives to his practice. I have worked with Catherine Walker throughout the first procedure and look forward to working with her again as well. This practice and Dr. Raphael are excellent.
The surgeons knowledge & sincerity continues to surpass those of other plastic surgeons that I've met, or in the past had surgery with.Dr. Raphael, is experienced, wise,& has a human quality that one can't teach just seems to have.
Dr. Raphael took the time to explain what interventions would help me reach my goals and looked at me as an individual. Although I consulted with other board-certified plastic surgeons, only Dr. Raphael made specific recommendations based on my personal wishes. I had a great experience and get comments about how attractive I look on a regular basis.
I was coming from another state and had used Dr. Raphael before. I remember the pain being fairly severe the last time and this time it was far less. I had not been to the new building before, and the number of staff was quite large and very helpful. I loved the nurse that was with me right before the procedure and was listened to, which is very important and very rare. It has been nearly three weeks and I would consider myself at 100\%, although I am still working with the restrictions and time frames I was given for healing and activities. It was quick, efficient, well done, and the staff was excellent as well as Dr. Raphael. Even the question of whether the exam rooms were relaxing was more about color that anything else. I thought the pale blue and white was not relaxing to me at all, but I liked that the rooms didn't look like rooms in a doctor's office and they were well decorated. Blue and white are just not warm to my person. Thank you, I am very happy!
I wanted to understand how to refresh my appearance without looking artificial . Although I consulted with other local surgeons with similar expertise, Dr. Raphael stood out as really responding to me as an individual, which impressed me . I am very happy with the results! Lots of compliments on my appearance.
Both Katherine and Lori were very knowledgeable about the procedures I had. Lori was absolutely wonderful when she took care of me after my procedure. ALL of the staff are friendly and flexible in scheduling appointments. Dr. Raphel answered all my questions and I never felt rushed. He made me feel comfortable and at ease before and after my procedures. He is a jewel!!
I have been a patient/client of Dr. Raphael's for several years and Ai4ps. I was referred by a nurse who works for another Medical Practice....someone I have know for 15 plus years and respected her opinion. I also consulted with other plastic surgeons for my first & second procedures and felt more comfortable with choosing Dr. Raphael and his competent staff. I know that the entire staff here is highly trained and have shown gifted skills, every time I have dealt with them. I always get all my questions answered promptly and with this procedure felt comfortable enough to only consult with Dr. Raphael and his staff before scheduling my procedure.
Catherine, the coordinator was knowledgeable and answered ally questions that the surgeon backed up. Catherine was able to provide me with important information about the product and procedure because she had undergone it herself. I left facility without a date for procedure 2* to having to get time off at work approved and then called Catherine back with date.
Dr. Raphael and his staff were at all times centered on my needs as a patient. I would highly recommend plastic surgery accomplish by Dr Raphael for those who would like to improve their over all appearance.
Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. I always felt taken care of.
Dr. Raphael is an absolutely incredibly gifted surgeon with a genuine concern for his patients. The moment you meet with him you come to realize that he is a very special and unique spirit. He shows a real concern for you as well as puts you at ease with his warm engaging personality while carefully listing to what you wish to achieve though surgery. Dr Raphael talents extend to other fields which enable him accomplish amazing results as he can effectively visualize what is possible when he meets with you. These other fields of expertise include oil painting artist, novelist, avid ice climber and he has experience in architectural design. I've had several procedures with Dr. Raphael and would definitely return should I need to. Just love this man, he is the best!!
Extremely friendly and thorough staff and surgeon.
Dr Raphael and his staff made me feel comfortable from the initial visit all the way through the post operative office visits. I interviewed other doctors prior to Dr Raphael. I felt at ease with everything about his practice. The initial visit proved to me that he cared and would take the time to willingly answer all my questions. Dr Raphael discussed all the options with me and told me that he thought my breasts would look fine with just the augmentation and did not push the additional lift surgery. I am grateful that he was honest with me and didn't try to make an extra buck. He did an excellent job and my breasts look fantastic. They actually look better than I had anticipated. I was also extremely please with the anesthesiologist. He went the extra mile in researching my medical history to make certain of what meds would work best for me. I am thoroughly pleased. Dr Raphael rocks and now my breasts do too!
Everything went very well. All the people involved were very nice, personable and easy to talk to about sensitive matters.
Dr Raphael listens intensely and advises in a very realistic, patient manner. I've had him perform numerous surgeries and ALWAYS arrive in a relaxed, ready state because of the thorough prep from his staff. The entire staff makes me feel like I'm the only patient on their list that day. Catherine, Debbie, Lori & Cindy are WONDERFUL compassionate human beings. Because I have such a high level of faith in Dr Raphael, I chose him to perform a mastopexy on my 17 yr old daughter. 12 years later she's still thrilled!
I am highly satisfied with the warmth and friendliness of Dr. Raphael and his staff, they made me feel very welcomed and comfortable the entire time. I am, however, not highly satisfied with the pockets created. I feel as if he could have made them closer together. I also think the size is a lot smaller than the size I tried on at the consultation. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I still like the results. :)
I had a mastectomy. Dr. Raphael and the team were excellent from the moment I called the facility inquiring about surgery until my last post op appointment. They were above and beyond any expectations I had set. They will be the first ones I call for any future treatments.
Dr Raphael is very talented as well as personable. From a financial point he is a best value. Could not be happier, that is why I am coming back for a forth thme for a Brest Augmentation. I trust him totally.
The whole experience from the very first contact for basic info. to post op. visits were really positive. All the staff that I had contact with were extremelly friendly and professional, including Dr. Raphael. I will most certainly use their professional skills for my next surgery adventure!
Dr. Raphael is friendly, caring, and highly skilled. His work has changed my life :)
Everyone at American Plastic Surgery are extremely professional, caring, and want you to have the best experience possible. A wonderful group of people.
My daughter has complete confidence in Dr. Rafael, recommends him highly and was thrilled with the results of her breast surgery. I enjoyed meeting the Dr. and his informed staff. We are waiting to hear from the insurance specialist in the office. That is my understanding. Thank you for your time and care.
Dr Raphael is so warm and caring, as was everyone that I came in contact with at the office. The office is clean and seems to be very efficient . If I had questions and called, I may have had to leave a message but someone always called me back in a very reasonable amount of time.
I have never been happier with the service I received. The surgeon was perfect and always welcomed me with a warming smile. I will deffinitly be back.
Very kind and warming. Dr. Raphael very educated with what he does and doesn't treat you like a number with a checkbook.
I had been to this doctor for a previous surgery and I was extremely satisfied with my result. The office staff is very professional and I had a great experience when I went back for my second procedure. I would return if I were to decide on another procedure.
Because even after surgery I had troubles and called the office and got in immediately to address the issue and Dr. Rapheal was great along with his team of nurses.
Dr. Raphael was extremly concerned with my questions and always willing to take the time to talk with me. All of the staff are very pleasant and helpful.
I have had the great fortune of meeting Dr Raphael 20 yrs ago in the ER when he answered a colleagues call after a desperate Mom of a 2.5 yr old little girl was mauled by a lg dog. He was amazing with a bedside manner I'd never seen! My dayght was smiling and happy and not afraid of her first experience in a hospital after a tragedy. His care over a period spanning 2 more years left her face as beautiful as ever. I didn't hesitate to contact him for my breast augmentation 18 yrs ago and to have a redo" this past fall. Just last month, that beautiful 2.5 yr old also had breast augmentation performed by Dr. Raphael. He is still as amazing as always. He and his Nurse Lori spend as much time as you need answering questions! You can do no better than Dr. Raphael and his staff! From Catherine to Lori to Jim (anethestician) and the post op nurses after surgery. I have recommended them for 20 years to my family, friends and others and will continue as long as Dr. Raphael is practicing. Thank you all!"
I've returned to Dr Raphael over the years for cosmetic procedures and care. He is truly one of a kind - no other medical professional I've known has been so competent, so accommodating of the patient's desired outcome.. He listens intently and realistically describes alternatives and expected outcomes. A brilliant surgeon with an artistist's vision...that's Dr Raphael. All throughout the process, he and his staff make you feel like family. I highly recommend Dr Raphael to anyone considering looking their best!
Love Dr. Rapheal. Thank you a wonderful experience and great results.
I felt I made the right decision to go ahead with surgery mainly because Catherine in the beginning put my mind at easy. Everyone in the office is very helpful and is very good about calming nerves. I can't remember her name but the nurse who took care of me the morning of surgery was just as sweet as can be. All the after care appointments help me know that my body is doing exactly what it is suppose to be doing.
I LOVE DOCTOR PETER RAPHAEL AND LORI. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE ON EARTH LIKE THEM, THEY REALLY CARE ABOUT WAHT YOU THINK AND HOW YOU FEEL. PETER IS THE ONLY DOCTOR I WILL EVER SEE TO LOOK MY BEST! THANK YOU BOTH FOR CHANGING MY LIFE!!! GOD BLESS YALL!
From the moment I walked into the offices, the staff was friendly, accommodating and knowledgable. They were very understanding of my nervousness and put me at ease right away. Dr. Raphael is amazing. He under promised and over delivered. I can't believe how I look. He is an artist and he understands how to properly shape a woman. After the surgery, the staff was there for me and my recovery went very smoothly because I knew what to expect and felt very prepared. I would go back again in a heartbeat and I would pay twice as much....the experience and the results were that good.
Satisfied with the surgery itself and the results, but not the post-op care.
The friendliness and caring of all staff in the clinic. Dr. Raphael is an amazing, personable, and caring physician/surgeon. I would highly recommend him without hesitation to family or friends.
I had to wait almost an hour for the doctor once I was in the exam room... But other than that, everything was great!
Dr Raphael and his staff are highly skilled and caring. I have experienced the best care with them - as opposed to what I experienced at other faciltiies/surgeons.
Dr and nurse made me feel very comfortable and explained procedure to me along with the risks and what was best for me. Both were very professional. Will definitely refer this Dr to anyone considering plastic surgery.
I have had work done by Dr. Raphael four years ago. He did an excellent job with my facelift and I couldn't be more pleased. I would not use any other surgeon but Dr. Peter Raphael. He is one of the best in the Dallas area in my opinion. The staff is alway friendly and respectful and I love the new facility they are in. I have an implant replacement and breast lift/augmentation scheduled for next month and I am confident that it will turn out great!
Staff is very knowledgable of procedures, what to expect before, during and after. Very friendly and attentive to patient needs. Constantly making sure you understand what is happening and answering any questions that come up. I would definitely recommend this practice to friends and family.
This surgery was the easiest procedure that I've experienced in the last 10 years. The facility was great, the staff treated me like a person and not like a number, and my recovery was a breeze. I'm so satisfied with results that I couldn't be any happier.
Dr R" is simply wonderful...He save my life......."
All the nurses were helpful and Dr. Raphel has been wonderful about any questions I needed to be answered.
Dr was very professional as was his nurse. They explained procedure to me along with risks and never made me uncomfortable at all. They were both very professional and made me feel good about the procedure I was considering. Will highly recommend to others.
Receiving the local anesthetic for my lip implant was very traumatic. I was not prepared for it. I wish I had been able to take a sedative beforehand. I also wished he had place a slightly larger implant. I haven't been able to tell any difference in the appearance of my upper lip.
From the moment I met Dr. Raphael I felt very comfortable. I had been to 3 other Dr.'s before him and didn't feel the compassion and comfort level I had with Dr. Raphael. I felt he listened to me and was very honest when I asked him for his thoughts regarding what I wanted to have done. A very down to earth man who makes you feel like you have know him forever. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
I have always found Dr Raphael and his staff to be highly qualifed, friendly, comforting, attentive, and caring. They make you feel like family. I highly recommend them to anyone considering surgery. I have been completely satisfied with my care they have provided. My first experience with Dr Raphael was to correct a botched" surgery by another surgeon. He is an artist and a talented man. Thank you Dr Raphael"
I could not have asked for a better surgeon. My experience was wonderful from start to finish.
The procedure was thoroughly explained to me, the actual surgery accomplished what it needed and was extremely successful. I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Raphael for any plastic surgery procedure, and, in fact, have given my daughter his contact information.
I was very impressed with the respect that myself and my partner were treated with by the patient coordinator and Dr. Raphael. I was referred to Dr. Raphael by a few friends and they spoke very highly of him and his staff and I was in no way disappointed when I met with them. I will definately be scheduling my procedure with them in the future and would recommend them very highly.
The wait was minimal, the staff very friendly as well as the surgeon. The surgeon was warm and explained the procedure well. He was not pushy, but made some good observations and recommendations. The staff had spent the appropriate amount of time with me and took photographs for before and after procedure pictures. I wish I could afford the procedure sooner. They would be a delight to work with.
Surgeon was excellent, made me feel very comfortable. really appreciated the bath robe to wear instead of sitting in the room without a shirt on or a paper robe.
Surgeon amazing and talented. Pre op best I ever had
The staff and a highly knowledgeable doctor made me feel comfortable and at ease. Thank you all for the pleasant experienced.
Dr Raphael and Catherine Walker were patient and thorough. Excellent experience and energy exchange.
Dr. Raphael and his nurses are amazing. He did an amazing job and made me feel pretty again. He used the latest technology and I didn't have to have drain tubes. I literally didn't feel much pain and I would do it again if I had to. I am already planning to have more surgeries but only with Dr. Raphael. He is truly AMAZING!!!!
