Surgery more than met my expectations. Wonderful and attentive care from doctor and OR team. Thoughtful aftercare.

Face Lift

Explanations were clear and timely. Staff was extremely helpful. Dr. Carlino was open to all of my questions and concerns. Always treated me with respect. Dr. Carlino came to my house on day #2 to spare me a trip to the office.


Staff were great, professional, and made me feel comfortable. And I trust Dr. Richard Carlino, and he's a great surgeon (my third surgery with him.)

Breast Lift

I was fully informed of what and how the procedure would be performed and what to expect afterwards.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Carlino took his time explaining the process and I never felt rushed when meeting with any staff member. Staff here are very friendly and return calls promptly. I was very nervous the morning of my procedure. The staff was very friendly and patient with me. Dr. Carlino stood by me until I was completely under.

Excellent bed side manner, made me comfortable, never waited during appointment times.

Male Breast Reduction

The process was seamless from consultation to surgery to follow up.

Mommy Makeover

I am very happy with the results. The staff was professional, kind and easy to work with. They take their time taking care of you and the after care has been exceptional. The best part of this experience has been the gain in my confidence.That, on its own, is priceless.

Eyelid Surgery

My eyes look great! Dr Carlino is very kind, easy to talk to and most importantly, very competent in his care. My OR staff and operative experience could not have been better! They made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I had no post op problems at all. Most importantly, I am happy with the results of my procedure.


Great results. Dr. Carlino and his staff set the proper expectations and the staff was caring. Instead of surgery it felt like a day at the spa :)

Face Lift

I had a great experience with Dr. Carlino because he is knowledgeable, kind, patient and talented. Based on my experience, I would recommend Dr. Carlino and the Specialists Practice to others. [Single best thing is...] It's hard to say just one single best thing. Two things stand out to me; Dr. Carlino made the whole procedure and experience as easy as possible and I like the results. The other good things were the recovery was not difficult at all and the staff is very kind.

Face Lift

Dr. Carlino is a wonderful, skilled and compassionate surgeon. He thoroughly explained everything about my procedure prior to my surgery. The anesthesiologist and surgical nurse were kind, thorough and very personable. I was well taken care of after surgery and throughout my recovery. The staff is also very kind and personable. Most importantly - I am so pleased the the results! Thank you!!

Face Lift

The quick healing and final “look” was fantastic. The professional care from doctor to receptionist was very pleasing.
