Dr. Engel is very caring and thorough. He and his staff listen to your concerns and you NEVER feel rushed or pressured... My results are amazing, and my care was second to none. Amazing Doctor and staff

Face Lift

I received professional treatment which was informative and helpful. The staff listened to my concerns and relayed them to Dr Engel

Breast Augmentation

Doctor and team were very knowledgeable and friendly. It was my first surgery ever and my first time having anesthesia and they made me feel extremely comfortable. In the end, my breasts look amazing and I wish I had done the procedure sooner! There is no single best thing...a lot of work and time and thinking goes into surgeries and procedures like mine. A combination of the staff and their knowledge and personalities and the way my breasts turned out is what made this procedure the best!

Fat Transfer

got good results and treatment was good

Excellent results. Caring staff (the surgery nurses were amazing). Experienced, knowledgeable doctor.


Described suggested procedure at length. I decided not to proceed but if I had chosen to have the surgery, I would certainly have had it with Dr. Engle.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Engel and his staff are extremely professional and caring. They took the time needed to explain the surgical process beforehand as well as what to expect during the recovery period.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Engel took the time to understand what I wanted and when what we picked pre-op was not it he had the confidence to make a change and use a different profile than originally discussed. My results are perfect in size and shape, symmetry and attention to detail. Dr. Engel is the single best thing! His honesty, judgement, talent, perfectionism, attention to detail, bedside manner, skill, experience, confidence, accountability, and ownership of creating the best results even when the plan needs to change.

Face Lift

Dr. Engel is extremely caring and thorough. His bedside manner is awesome! Dr. Engel made me feel like I was his only patient and took all the time I needed to answer my questions and concerns. He insisted I felt comfortable with the procedure before, during and after. His staff from reception area, to pre-op care to post-op care - all follow his lead; Extremely caring!
