Dr. Carlino and Staff, Courtney and all the nurses involved in my case are exceptional. Dr. C has the absolutely best bedside manner I have EVER experienced.

Breast Reduction

I felt safe even during COVID. The procedure was thoroughly explained prior. I never felt rushed. All my questions and concerns were addressed. I was able to email the nurses after if had a question. They responded quickly. I was extremely satisfied with my results. I felt my surgeon listened to my concerns/desires and cared about my experience and results.

Tummy Tuck

The entire staff was so kind, caring, and amazing. I was amazed when the doctor called me personally to talk about COVID and the impact on the scheduling. They put me at ease right before the surgery as I was very nervous. The results are amazing. I lost 180lb about eight years ago and the extra skin was very difficult and painful to live with. Now it’s gone and I feel and look amazing! Thank you Dr. Carlino and staff! The results were better than I ever dreamed of.
