Everyone involved in the surgery were highly professional and receptive to all my needs. The receptionist are top notch and very accommodating. I especially liked my nurse before the surgery a real sweet heart.
It was an awesome experience from start to finish! Everyone & everything was superior. Dr. Carlino performed two procedures for me that day and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I feel 100% physically better. All of my discomfort is gone. I hadn't realized how much I was being effected by the implants.
Dr Blanton and all staff made me feel comfortable and eased my anxiety as much as they possibly could. I called them several times(left message on nurses' line as instructed) within the first 3-4 weeks for various questions/concerns I had following my procedure and they were always quick to call back, patient and answered all of my questions.
This was my third surgery to remove excess skin after a drastic weight loss. Dr. Carlino is amazing and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him on all my surgeries. He is kind, listens and calms concerns, tells it like it is so you have no surprises.His staff is equally amazing! They have all helped to make a tremendous difference in my life.
Dr Carlino was highly recommended by several Drs I currently see. His was the only name they recommended !!! He was outstanding, Especially at focusing on what was right for me and not my fiancé.
Dr Blanton couldn’t have done a better job. The head nurse was amazing- full of information and very comforting during a stressful time. The entire staff was great
From my first consultation with Dr Daluvoy to my recent 10 week post-op appointment, I felt completely confident about my choice in surgeries (breast reduction) and my physician. Dr Daluvoy and his staff provided meticulous instruction and excellent care as I prepared for and recovered from my surgery. After waiting and wanting this procedure for many years, I am thrilled with the results. I would say I wish I had done it sooner but then I would not have had Dr Daluvoy as my surgeon. A wonderful experience all around. My life is changed forever. Thank you.
Excellent service and skill. The staff was kind and informative, providing everything I needed to make the procedure safe, comfortable, and with a great outcome. Dr. Dulavoy was professional and didn’t promise any unrealistic outcomes. He was a good listener and gave me details about the procedure and assurance that everything was safe and taken care of. His knowledge, skill, and concern for patient satisfaction were excellent. I would recommend him to anyone seeking plastic surgery procedures.
I wanted to have a refreshed look and Dr Russell did a fantastic job with my surgery! I am extremly satisfied with the results. I received exactly what I wanted with no surprises. I would do it again in a heart beat.Thanks for taking such good care of me!
Amy does great work and really compliments your features
I have a flat abdomen for the first time in my life! everyone was so nice/ friendly and professional.
the office staff was very friendly and helpful. any questions that i had they would answer. always very professional and personable. which in my case with the outcome of my surgery was very much needed and appreciated.
Amy was great! She made me feel very comfortable & I love my results!
Amy was awesome, very accommodating and knowledgeable. She made it quick, easy, and relaxing. I've had lip injections in other offices and the results Amy gave me because of her technique look better and used less filler than my previous experiences.
The team was very nice and answered all my questions. I felt at ease! Dr. Carlino and his team had excellent bedside manners. They listened to my concerns, were friendly, and most importantly I felt I could trust them.THANK YOU! My next procedure will be with Dr. Carlino!!
Dr Carlino was wonderful. Very kind and patient. I have anxiety but with all my questions and follow up questions I never felt like I was being bothersome. It's really hard to put into words how the surgeon and the anesthesiologist made me and my husband feel so completely comfortable the morning of surgery. Absolutely went above and beyond. Dr Carlino held my hand while I was going under and having the surgeon give you that much attention and care, it really made me I was, literally, in good hands. My life has changed significantly. I feel so much better about myself and it has motivated me to workout even more than I did before. This surgery gave me back a feeling of normalcy. Something, after three children and two abdominal health related surgeries, I haven't felt in a very long time. At 50 years old, this is the best thing I've ever done for myself. At first I thought it was a bit selfish but knowing now how it's changed my life, it affirms my decision was the right decision. I would do it all over again.
I am highly satisfied for many reasons. The overall experience was pleasant and I felt I was in good hands. I am very pleased with the outcome of the procedure.
Great results, great team of doctor and nurses and staff, wonderful atmosphere. I couldn’t be happier with my experience. My neck and back pain have decreased dramatically. I have so much more energy and can move around more. This has given me so much more confidence.
My surgeon was awesome and very personable. If I ever need anything done in the future I will go back to him! The communication through out the entire process was excellent and I was comfortable through out the whole thing.
Dr. O shwald was great as was the staff. Took time with me pre and post op The staff elicits trust
I've had 3 procedures done with Dr. Oschwald. In each one he has given me a realistic expectation of the results. They have explained exactly what I should expect during recovery, so I was not surprised by level of pain or how recovery progressed. I absolutely love my results! After losing a great deal of weight, getting rid of all that extra skin, allows me to wear normal clothes and removed a lot of the shame I was feeling!
Every thing went smoothly and I love the results. I love not having saggy eyelids, makes me look a little younger.
The results were awesome and my recovery was fast. I ate super healthy. I only used pain meds 3 days. My swelling was almost down by day 4. Dr. Russell knows what he's doing. The mental recovery was harder than the physical because a change in your face can be hard. I wasn't prepared for that. Listen to the doctor. He is a smart guy.
Dr. Russell is amazing and incredibly patient. His work is nothing short of miraculous. Quickness of the actual surgery.
The results! Dr. Blanton is a perfectionist in his work. I was so pleased to have no stitches on the outside. . From start to finish, the entire staff was informative, thorough, and I am extremely happy with the results. Surgery day was so smooth and recovery was exactly what the staff prepared me for.
From the very first day I met Dr. Carolino he was so loving and caring. I was extremely nervous but he made me feel so comfortable. Such a wonderful man! I had breast reconstructive surgery - I am so please with my final results - I feel normal again.
The overall experience was very good. The outcome was excellent. The outcome exceeded my expectations.
Extremely friendly staff! Dr Russell and his staff were kind and patient especially when I was undecided on size and type of implant. When I had doubts about the size I had picked they quickly brought me back into the office for an additional consult with a nurse who was extremely knowledgeable and helped me get answers to the questions that I had. Post-op visits were quick and easy! Hands down great experience overall with such an amazingly genuine staff.
Would have liked to have been given written literature of product being used.
Having my procedures done (full abdominoplasty, excision of the mons, and liposuction) was not an easy decision for me due to my being a little older and because of the costs and time off from work required, so I really did my research and checked out three different reputable plastic surgery practices. SIPS was hands down, from the very first contact, the better of all three. Dr. Daluvoy's medical knowledge, philosophy on his profession, and his compassionate approach to patient care coupled with the cleanliness of the office environment and the genuinely caring and attentive staff made my experience remarkable. I knew what to expect (and what not to expect) and had every single question and concern addressed immediately with such respect and kind consideration. A little more than two months out, I am already so pleased with the results. I cannot wait to see how things look a few months from now as all systems go back to normal.
Everyone was so very nice and professional making sure I was ok before the surgery and after the surgery !!! They really are amazing ! The fact that I have my nose back and it’s much better than before
Dr. Carlino and his team provided excellent care and communication about the surgery. I could not be more pleased with the whole process, from the information and expectations to the recovery and results. Physician's skill and experience, coupled with his information and ability to communicate it.
Could not have asked for a better place to have this procedure. Every one makes you fell comfertable an confident.
Have always had a very nice natural arch on eyebrows. After this treatment I have no arch-brows look flat. Poor placement of injections.
Amy was very skilled, and very professional! The fillers really made a difference.
I was very satisfied with my experience and results! I felt like I was in really good hands with Amy. I want to come back :) I love the overall look of my lip enhancements!
Amy was great, very knowledgeable, friendly, and made me feel comfortable. Reducing my deep forehead wrinkles, making me feel more confident.
Wonderful experience. Everyone I encountered was very attentive and wanted to ensure they responded to all of my concerns. They treated me like a patient not a client. What that means to me is that the staff treated me with medical care. I think I was expecting it to seem more frivolous and cosmetic. I really appreciate the professionalism of the entire staff. I feel more confident in my own skin. For almost my entire life, I hated my nose and especially my profile. I put a lot of energy in making sure that my head wasn't turned to a profile when pictures were taken of me and even when in social groups of people. I still catch myself doing that and I have to remember that I no longer need to be uncomfortable about my appearance. If I knew how easy the surgery and recovery would be compared to what I gained from it, I would have done it decades ago.
I love my results from the breast augmentation that Dr Blanton did! He called me the night of my procedure to make sure I was medicated well enough and talked me through what he was able to do and not do. He gave me real expectations and was able to meet them. I have had multiple people ask me where I had it done- that they look great, very natural and fitting size for my body. I always give the entire staff there high praise and highly recommend your practice! Thank you for giving me the chest I've always wanted!! -God may give you lemons- by Dr Blanton can give you melons! I feel confident and beautiful. Clothes fit better, I feel more proportional.
Loved Dr Blanton thoroughness, his time, the overall care he took in making sure we accomplished our goals It was a breeze, no post o.o complications
Great attention and care!!! My breast reduction is wonderful! My clothes fit better and I feel so much lighter!
Dr. Oschwald listened carefully during my consultation and delivered the highest quality of care before, during and after. The nurses were fantastic! I loved them and they listened and provided continuous quality care. My CRNA was wonderful and made me feel at ease, I also loved his flip flops! I'm no longer embarrassed to wear clothing, I feel so happy when I look in the mirror now and no longer want to cry when I look at my own reflection. My confidence has sky rocketed, I tell everyone to go see this team! My results look incredibly natural!
The staff was so friendly consistently. And my doctor was awesome giving me the care that I needed.
Great office staff and surgeon!!! Very detailed and listened to all my concerns. Answered all my questions. Even was very comforting right before surgery. I mean they held my hand bc I was nervous. Very caring people. Overall experience was amazing. Before and after surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better dr. My husband and I love my new boob job! I can fit into clothes better, has made me more confident
I'm the happiest with the filler and Botox in my chin and mouth area. My mouth is no longer in a constant frown. I love it! I waited a long time before and during my appointment. The price I was quoted for Botox and juverderm injections during my consultation was considerably higher than what I paid.
Dr. Oschwald is amazing. He did my original implant in 1991 and wouldn't let anyone else operate on me. Great bedside manner and HUGE knowledge base. Everyone was so nice
Amy M.. was very polite, professional, and highly knowledgeable .. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and my experience with her in the services that she provided for me .. The office staff was also very polite and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I can't say what was the single best thing about my experience! I was extremely and thoroughly pleased with all the procedures I had done ..
Dr. Russell had personally called me after the surgery to see how I was doing and asked if I had any questions. Peggy and other nurses were very kind and provided drinks and gift bag. Overall it was very welcoming and if I want anything else done in the future I will most certainly return!
Dr.Dulavoy is so professional, respective, and real. He talked realistically about what to expect and he never see ed rushed.. always answered my questions thoroughly. I can finally look good in fitted tops!
Dr Daluvoy was amazing. He took the time to precisely communicate all information of the breast reduction surgery. His compassion and bedside manner is exemplary. Dr. Daluvoy's personalized approach from start to finish enabled me to feel at ease and comfortable. The outcome of the surgery has made me feel wonderful, and has skyrocketed my self esteem.
I loved Amy, office was very professional. Service was great. My face looked great. No bruising
Did not have to wait long before being seen. Amy was friendly and professional.
Amy made me feel extremely comfortable and she explained exactly what she was doing during the appointment. She was very friendly and inviting! I look forward to coming back. Confidence about my appearance.
Amy was extremely knowledgeable & professional. She u sets Yoo's exactly what my needs wereand results show that. I highly recommend her & your office. Natural look
Amy was very professional and the staff pleasant. No pain
Amy understood my self confidence issues and had me leaving feeling absolutely beautiful with my new lips. She was informative and new her product through and through. I will most definitely be coming back! The before and after picture was the most exciting thing during my appointment! My results made me happier than I could have ever imagined with just one session.
My surgeon listened to me carefully and remembered my goals. Dr Delavoy was very compassionate and cared about my concerns.
My doctor was very caring and wanted the best result for me. It has allowed me to be more positive and not be reminded of my breast cancer because I don't have a completely flat chest anymore.
From the first visit to my last, everyone in the office is professional and pleasant. Dr. Carlino is a perfectionist, making sure that he communicates thoroughly with his patient to insure the expected outcome. There is not one negative thing I can say about this doctor or his staff, they made my experience as good as it could possibly have been, just wish I had the nerve to do it sooner! I feel better about myself!
The staff including everyone from the reception desk to Dr. Carlino are very professional yet approachable. Nothing was left to chance as far as what to expect pain wise. Preparedness was exceptional. The only concern I had was how long it took to get an appointment with Dr. Carlino and then the long wait for the surgery. I am an impatient person but the wait also told me I had chosen the right physician. Excellence in their craft (surgery) was obvious. The wait for the most skilled and best is always longer. Waiting for Dr. Carlino was definitely the right choice.
My clothes fit better, my self esteem has gotten so much better, I am forever grateful and happy for the decision to have this surgery. . This is my second experience with Dr. Oschwald. I cannot say enough positive things about him. He is realistic, honest, respectful, caring, and genuinely wants you to love your experience. I had no surprises with pain (believe it or not, it was minimal), scar, drains, down time, etc...I went from not wanting to wear a swimsuit to loving everything about myself again. My Mom pooch is flat. It's amazing! I loved my nurse anesthetist. (Dan-I'm pretty sure). He was also realistic, honest, caring, and did everything he could to put me at ease. My OR nurses were amazing. I wish I could remember their names. The office has changed since my first procedure, but Dr. Oschwald is the same amazing surgeon he was the first time I met him years ago. His work is impeccable!
Quality of workmanship. Friendliness of staff, especially nurses and provider. I am still recovering so I am not at 100% yet but I am making steady profess to resume all my pre surgery activities. After the surgery I had a difficult recovery mentally due to limitations and decreased activities. I am pleased with my body contour and new shape.
Everyone I interacted with was kind and patient focused. I have never had such a patient focused office in my life from the front reception to Dr. Delavoy.
Dr. Oschwald is amazing!!! He listens to each and every concern you may have and answers all your questions. Is 100% honest with you. I recommend him to anyone having any type of cosmetic surgery.
Practically no discomfort! Very important! Well.....outcome of course plays a big part.Realistic expectations set.
Dr Carlino and Rex Ambultory Surgery were awesome. Facility was easy to get in and out of, staff friendly and knowledgeable. James Howell CRNA made me feel comfortable and in safe hands Professional friendly staff put me at ease
My clothes fit so much better. 2nd time with SIPS. I trust Dr. Russell and his skills. The office and staff are great. Im had zero issues with anything.
The site where my procedure was done was so comfortable. The nurses were attentive and kind to me being so nervous. My favorite thing about the office was that they had leg warmers on the hospital bed that made you feel more relaxed. Which of course is important when you're about to go under for a surgery. When I woke up they were just as attentive and made sure that my care giver knew exactly what they needed to know to take care of me during the recovery process. I recommend this office to anyone thinking about getting plastic surgery.
Dr. Blanton and the entire team at Specialists in Plastic Surgery were incredible. From the front desk staff who greets you, to the patient coordinator who answered questions, to the nurses who went over all the steps and answered all my questions, to Dr. Blanton who was so thorough and patient, and incredibly thoughtful in the entire process, I was beyond impressed and felt very well taken care. Everyone was incredibly kind, thoughtful and attentive. I had a phenomenal experience and would highly recommend them to anyone. This procedure has enhanced my confidence. It has truly helped me appreciate my body more and feel more proportionate in my overall size.
Dr. Oschwald is amazing!! Dr. And his team. Made me comfortable and relaxed.
My surgery was a failure from the beginning, and should never have been performed. Dr. Oshwald knew that, and just wanted my money. Very disappointed with the lack of care I received from this doctor.
My overall visit form the first day till the last was very good. They made me feel very comfortable and well informed. They answered all my questions and concerns. Even during my recovery if I had questions the doctor called me on two occasions. I was very pleased and satisfied. My clothes fit so much better and make my appearance look better. I fell more confident within myself.
Dr. Daluvoy handled my tummy tuck two years ago. He did so with such precision and care, I returned to him for liposuction of my flank and underarm areas. (There was really no question about who I'd trust with the surgery.) He listened carefully, understood my goals (and actually repeated them in pre- and post-surgery meetings), and executed our plan with his keen eye for detail. Afterwards, he celebrated with me as I healed. He is my hero! I am more confident. I told Dr. D that I wanted to look good (decent?) in a t-shirt. He helped me achieve this.
There are no words that can express my gratitude/flat out thankfulness to Dr. Carlino and his wonderful caring staff! The care and concern for my well being after a mastectomy was awesome! I was truly blessed by them! The time and care they spent on me! I was not treated as a number and was not herded through like cattle. Every time I needed to ask a question or anything----they were there for me!
Very informed, educational, and helpful with understanding treatment, follow up, and additional opportunities in the future
Very caring and competent staff and surgeon. My results exceed my expectations
Dr. Blanton is the best! I had to have a mastectomy with reconstruction based on a genetic mutation. He is the reason I felt confident to go forward with making the difficult decision. I would never hesitate to do another procedure with him in the future. It has given me the peace of mind to reduce the risk of breast cancer in the future.
I was highly satisfied with Dr Blanton. I am a bit concerned with the time it's taking me to recover, but I understand that that is mostly my responsibility and due to circumstances beyond his control. I get the impression that he is an excellent surgeon as well as an intelligent and caring human being.
I don't recall being told it would take a week or so to notice the difference in size in my breast. I thought immediately after surgery I would be able to tell.
You gave me a huge burst of confidence when I was able to fit into my clothes and achieve the overall look that I was going for. Confidence leads to bigger bolder moves and I feel like you guys have given me a piece of my life back. I got the upmost attention from my surgeon and also the staff. Any complications that arose was handled with care and attention to detail. I have already sent several friends and clients to come visit you at your practice and will continue to do so because of the overall experience that I had. [name]
I appreciated the way dr carlino treated me with great respect and care. He answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. I felt very confident that he would take great care of me, and he did. The nurses and other staff were also great. Dr. Carlino really went the extra mile to set my mind at ease at each step along the way. I felt he really cared about me as an individual. I can tell he is a person of integrity as well as a gifted surgeon. I love the outcome!
2 of the 3 procedures didn't go as well as I would have hoped. The revision was supposed to be scheduled and the receptionist said the scheduler would contact me. Didn't happen when I called them they told me they couldn't fit me in until MAY. My procedure was in dec.
Everything was done professionally and to my satisfaction.
Dr Carlino and his staff were always very kind and caring. I never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointments. My final outcome after surgery is great!
Very professional overall. Realistic about the outcome. Surgeon always pleasant and not rushed with post op check ups
I was totally satisfied with all aspects of my surgery. Care was outstanding, the surgeon, anesthesiologist and nurse gave me clear explanations as to what would happen during the surgery and what to expect afterwards. Pain management was superb, I experienced far less pain than I expected for a tummy tuck. My surgeon's skill was apparent as I had little swelling and bruising and my final results were wonderful. I would recommend Dr Oschwald and the Specialist In Plastic Surgery group to anyone looking for plastic surgery. After massive weight loss, the hanging skin left me with a body image problem. Prior to my breast lift, arm lift and tummy tuck my clothes did not fit, and I did not look as I felt I should at my proper weight. I'm also able to exercise without the pain of flopping skin, and I no longer have the wrinkled elephant skin I had prior to my surgeries. I look forward to completing my journey with a thigh lift.
Knowledgeable, personable, upbeat Doctor who answered all my questions, prepared me for the procedure and aftercare. He also did a beautiful job, with minimal scarring. My clothes fit better. I can wear things I never wore before. My breasts and I enter the room at the same time, instead of them first. I don't get ogled so much because of my extra large chest.
For a patient, the morning of surgery can be filled with nerves and anxiety, but at SIPS, everyone is calm, kind, and reassuring. No one is rushing around. Everything about the morning is personal. And the last minutes, when you walk into the surgical suite and lay down on the table to the last few seconds where you doze off to sleep, the anesthesiologist, nurse and doctor are holding your hand, talking in sweet calm tones and ensuring serenity and trust. To me, these minutes are everything.
My eyes and eyebrows got a lift! The cost of the procedure seemed high. There was a special going on at the time but I wasn't informed how many units I received and couldn't confirm I received the discounted price. I should have asked.
Amy is an expert in what she does. She is truly an artist and has a trained aesthetic eye, she really made me feel comfortable and the results I had were phenomenal. The result was one that wasn't too "overdone" but looked amazing
DR. DULUVOY, DAVE, KRISTEN AND STAFF.HAD NO PAIN WHAT SO EVER AND THE OUTCOME WAS FABULOUS. THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE AND THE SURGEON, ANESTHESIOLOGIST, NURSE AND THE STAFF! PROFESSIONAL AND VERY FRIENDLY.THANK YOU DR. DULUVOY AND DAVE!!!
Dr. Carlino was a joy to work with. He is professional but warm, and is clearly knowledgable about a number of procedures and surgery in general. I initially decided to get implants and a partial lift because I was worried about scarring. After a year I was unhappy with the implants because of their size (which he and I chose together), I decided to remove the implants and get a full lift instead. I was still worried about scarring, but after only three months they are already better than I thought they would be originally. When I decided to remove my implants, Dr. Carlino was very accommodating in terms of working out a price for a second surgery. He always made me feel heard and understood and I completely trust his abilities, and I would (and may) absolutely use his services again.
How down to earth and informative Amy was!! Love her!
Amy was fantastic! It was my first time and she put me at ease and did not pressure me to do more than what I wanted
The procedure worked well. The excess skin is gone and my tummy has never looked better. There was no pressure to have surgery after all of my questions were answered. The staff provided information to help with the financial part as well.Dr. Dalovoy provided details of the type of surgery I had and realistic expectations of the entire process. I followed the recommendations and have had no complications. My scar is healing well.
Wish they were lifted a little higher. Felt like they have dropped more than I would like but too I think this is because of the size of my breast and it being heavy.
Dr. Carlino and his staff are very professional and compassionate towards their patients. I never doubted their expertise or their confidence. I have referred them to others and will use their services again. I feel and look younger. I don't feel like I have to open my eyes wider to see.
After my appt I was able to contact Amy about any questions I had and she was able to help me. She was awesome during the appt and totally understood what look i wanted. THANKS AMY YOU'RE THE BEST
Great staff, clean office, clear understanding of what to expect, great results w zero side effects or bothersome sensations. I was pleasantly surprised. Was expecting a weird feeling in my forehead and it all feels totally normal
Highly satisfied because of the amount and quality of time spent with surgeon before and after surgery. Felt listened to in every question; nurses were attentive. My physical and emotional experiences mirrored what I was told to expect. The fact that Dr. Oschwald looks at your body to recommend proportionate breast sizes rather than focusing on a specific measurement or implant size. I appreciate that his expertise enables him to recommend the correct size for a patient's body.
I had arm lift surgery following a massive weight loss. I felt a real rapport with Dr. Russell. I felt that he really understood me and what I was wanting. He did not have an over the top" attitude. I had consults with two other surgeons who came across as very arrogant. I felt very confident in his abilities. I felt as though he listened well and was interested in my well-being and happiness.My arm lift results are way better than I had hoped they would be. Everyone had told me that I would have horrible, gross scars and I would never want anyone to see my arms. How WRONG they were!!! I do believe that I can actually go sleeveless this summer!"
A few years back I came in to consider this surgery, but was not mentally nor financially ready. This time, I was ready and felt at peace with the procedure. Being a nurse, I am keenly aware of risks etc and I was reassured that I was an excellent candidate for the surgery I was considering . I have always felt guilt about the idea of a breast reduction, knowing it is elective- again MD Blanton and his team were respectful and supportive in a kind and authentic way that allowed me to feel at peace with my decision. I am very grateful for their support and skill. Overall a life changing experience.
I was very concerned that my breast augmentation would result in breasts larger than I desired. The outcome was just what I was looking for. Could not be happier. I look better in my clothes (and of course, without my clothes!). I was very self conscious about how I looked before and now feel much more confident about my appearance.
Surgeon was very experienced and meticulous. I was very well informed what to expect for the procedure and recovery. I was not given unrealistic expectations of the outcome and was in fact discouraged from performing additional procedures that the surgeon felt were not necessary at the time. I had minimal bruising and swelling and had a very natural looking result.
This procedure corrected a previous surgery done elswhere and ended a nine month period of complications. Dr. was very clear and explained his plans in a manner I could understand. Follow up visit's were done often and all post op issues (seroma's) were dealt with quickly.Front desk staff and post op nurses were great!Dr. Russel's bedside manner was very conforting.
I am 65 and feel so much younger. I know I am eating healthier and working out at the gym as a result. I am looking forward to warmer weather so I can wear a bathing suit without pads and tank tops. . I was concerned about the 30 year old implants I had and went for a consultation with Dr Daluvoy to see what it would take to remove and replace them. Dr Daluvoy was very professional and gave me good advice and my husband and I felt I should have this surgery. Seven weeks later I had the capsillectomy and implant surgery. I am so happy it is done and it was such a success.Dr Daluvoy and his whole staff met with me a couple of times before the surgery and were very informative and pleasant and caring. I only wish I had done this earlier! He balanced me out and added a cup size. This makes me feel so confident and happy that I am filling out my clothes and I finally feel like my breasts are the right size for my 5'8 frame. The plus side is that my waist looks thinner with a more prominent chest! I highly recommend this office and Dr Daluvoy in particular. I would also like to note that they helped me finance my procedure and I was able to get a great credit line with no interest for over a year! "
Dr. Blanton and his surgical team on the day of my procedure. Made me feel so special and important. They kindly addressed every question I had and made me feel that no question was not important. I wish I could work with these people every day! In my experience visiting other plastic surgery offices, Dr. Blanton and his staff are exceptional in every way. They are kind, informative, attentive, and Dr. Blanton himself saw me several times before I decided to move forward with the surgery to answer all my questions, show me before/after photos, and simply provide his support. He and his staff are the nicest people I've ever encountered in this type of setting. I felt so well cared for and attended to; I just can't say enough nice things. I will return to this practice if I have any further procedures and I will definitely recommend them to my friends.
My experience with surgeons in the past is that they are very good at their jobs but do not have people skills--and I would take the skills over the social skills any day. However, Dr. Daluvoy is not only a skilled surgeon, he listens and takes time to hear the patient and make sure they are comfortable and all needs are met. Great bedside manner! Dr. Daluvoy is a kind, caring and skilled surgeon. He is truly an artist...able to create a completely natural result.The staff and medical team are friendly and professional. My experience exceeded my expectations!
The procedures completely changed my body image, which has led to a new outlook on life! Getting dressed in the morning is no longer a depressing experience! . Professional surgeon and support staff. I would recommend Dr. Carlino's services to anyone.
Amy was knowledgeable about procedures and helpful in decision making. It did what I wanted it to do
Amy is very personable and professional. Also extremely efficient. Looking foreword to next procedure. No longer look mad all the time. Amy filled in furrows between eyes
My breasts are still misshapen and am told by 4 months they should of settled so until I see them the shape I was expecting I won't be satisfied
I now have a flat stomach !!!!!! The staff was friendly, informative, and made you feel that everything was going to be alright. They also made a special effort to inform and reassure your family who brings you to the surgery on what to expect and how to care for you. The whole process is well done and there is always someone available to answer your questions.
Just feel better about myself when i look in the mirrir. Doctor really listened to what I wanted, AND didnt want
I was impressed by the length of time Dr. Russell spent with me during my initial consult. He was very thorough and really listened to my needs and expectations. I had consulations with surgeons at other practices and they were short and felt impersonal. Cost-wise Dr. Russell was right in the middle but the deciding factor was the consultation time with him and his staff.
Loved Dr Carlino and his staff! His surgical nurse and anesthesiologist were awesome, they were very informative and very calming! I love my results!
The end result is so realistic, far exceeded my expectations! Dr Carlino came highly recommended by my radiologist and my ob/ gyn. My initial consult and initial surgery was for a breast reduction. During the course of the reduction surgery, Dr Carlino felt tissue that he thought was questionable. He sent the tissue to path and the results came back cancerous. Dr Carlino sent out a call for a general surgeon, the two of the proceeded to do a lumpectomy and Dr Carlino finished the breast reduction after the lumpectomy was complete. I attribute his skill and knowledge to saving my life on the operating table that day. He has been a tremendous source of support and guidance throughout this journey. My last phase of this journey was the choice I made to have a prophylactic mastectomy with reconstruction performed. Dr Carlino spent a great length of time discsuiing my options and the pros and cons of each option. To say I trust Dr Carlino with my life is an understatement. I am done with the reconstruction and I could not be more pleased with the outcome. His level of skill is above and beyond any peer in this type of work in my opinion. I have and will continue to refer friends and family to Dr Carlino. Thanks for the opportunity to share the compassion, skill, and knowledge of one of the greatest surgeons.
Dr Carlino is always honest in the risks and down-side" to any procedure and is helpful and honest in deciding the need for a procedure. He has performed several procedures in the past and, if I have future work done, will be the first and only doctor I will consider.
Dr. Carlino is a fantastic surgeon. The OR staff were also extremely helpful, comforting, and intelligent. Self confidence and overall comfort is improved.
My husband and I were at ease with all of the staff we encountered.
I had low self esteem and dreaded having to be undressed in front of anyone. I am 61 and thought maybe I am too old to even try to do this. From my very first appointment to the present Dr. Carlino and his staff made me feel comfortable. They understood my fears and were kind and patient with me. When I was first brought into the surgical suite and was lying down, I had a nurse holding my hand telling me everything is going to be alright. Dr. Carlino came in and held my other hand and told me they were going to take good care of me. The results of the surgery has been wonderful!! I feel like a different person. Pain in my back has been reduced as a result of the tummy tuck and for the first time in my life I am not ashamed of myself!
I can wear clothes more comfortably and don't have embarrassing flab hanging under my upper arm. I am happy to wear sleeveless blouses and show my arms now where before I always wore a little sweater to cover my arms, even in the heat of summer. . Doctor and nurses are wonderful toward me. I feel very comfortable with Dr and staff. Anesthesiologist was very professional and informative. No problems whatsoever and results were as expected. Have already referred a friend and she's already recovering from her procedure.
Definitely look refreshed. Would have liked a follow up after the juvederm - it's somewhat lumpy. Also, much more expensive than anticipated - double the amount which I questioned but the receptionist was a little flippant.
I can run now without chaffing, and I am more comfortable in my boot camp classes in shorts. I have some toning to do in my lower inner thighs but I am working on that process. I do question if I should have done a little more but overall happy with the result on a functional level. I had absolutely no complications and my incisions are perfect. . I am a nurse myself so I look for education, cleanliness, promptness, and compassionate care. I find Dr. Carlino to be exceptional. Many years ago after a 90lb weight loss I had a breast reduction and then in 2006 a tummy tuck. My most recent surgery was the final touch up I wanted after years of keeping off my weight. I can not say enough about this practice and Dr. Carlino. In healthcare today it is a rare find to get the total package." :)"
Dr. Carlino and all of the staff in the practice were very professional but also very attentive to my questions and needs. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering a facelift.
Amy was knowledgeable, professional and gave me awesome service
I had a fantastic experience,Dr. Carlino did a great job. It has made a huge difference in the way I look and feel.I'm so glad I had it done.
My self confidence has skyrocketed. I now feel comfortable and confident in my own skin. Thank you! . Dr. Daluvoy and the entire staff at SIPS were fantastic in every way possible. They took the time to listen to my concerns and answer all questions I had. They were kind and respectful and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in even my most vulnerable state. It isn't easy to strip down naked in front of strangers but they put my mind at ease and made the entire experience, from office visits to my surgery, very easy and as painless as possible. Thank you very much Dr. Daluvoy and staff!
The doctor and the surgery center staff were amazing. . Dr Daluvoy sat down with me prior to even viewing my condition and he really listened to me so we could determine the best course of action. The surgery selected ended up being different than what I had thought I wanted. By comparison, a different office I went to for a consultation treated me as if they knew what I wanted prior to my coming in the room, and they were pushy to get me to schedule.
Dr Dalvouy and his nurse Jess are some of the most compassionate and caring people I have ever met!! Never would they have let me walk out of that office nervous, scared, or with any unanswered questions. It just gave me what I needed for myself
Just made me more confident! . It was amazing everything went perfect and the staff and Dr Russel are the sweetest people they truly care about your experience and want everything to be perfect!
I am more confident. I am no longer self-conscious. Even my posture has improved. This new freedom allows me to better focus on others. I'm finding I have more and more friends... I'm much more positive about my future. My everyday life wasn't bad before but now it is so much better. I had no idea how much I was impacted by how I looked. . Dr. Daluvoy performed a tummy tuck and breast lift. The results are outstanding. The surgery was worth every penny. I'm on a whole higher plane of happiness in every facet of my life now in this body.
Dr. Oschwald was very thorough in explaining what my medical procedure would entail, and took great care is answering all my questions. His process for my home care immediately after my surgery was equally as thorough and he gave me specific and detailed instructions on how to measure and record my drainage and a schedule to follow for managing my pain during my recovery. He provided periodic and measured followup visits and over saw my entire and full recovery. It was a very satisfactory experience and I was extremely pleased with my results. reduce back pain
The natural look and feel. Highly satisfied because there was absolutely nothing that wasn't top notch.
I felt comfortable and well-informed. I am very happy with my experience and feel so much better about myself and have a higher self-esteem.
Dr. Russell and his staff went above and beyond to accommodate all of my needs and wants. I was really worried about not having natural looking breast after surgery, but Dr. Russell did a perfect job. Sometimes I even forget that I had surgery and its only been a few months. I was really nervous and unsure when I went into my consultation but my fears were quickly put to rest. Dr. Russell and his staff gave me information that I needed to make an informed decision and were actually one of the few practices that did not try to push me into having the surgery. They really stressed that it needed to be completely my decision. I would definitely recommend Dr. Russell to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much! Thanks to Dr. Russell I am the most confident I have ever been with my body. Thank you so much Dr. Russell.
Amy is awesome. She listened to my concerns and the results were exactly what I wanted.
This doctor genuinely cares about his patients and their needs. I have seen doctor Blanton twice now for 2 procedures. He does an excellent job and is very kind and respectful of his patients needs. I would highly recommend Dr. Blanton and will use him again if I have any future needs!
The results. Dr. Blanton is wonderful. He offers sound advice, is kind, and made me feel very comfortable.
After getting my breast augmentation, I am beyond more confident. Bikinis? No problem! Not with the NATURAL work done by Dr Oschwald!!!! Dr Oschwald was hands down the best. I had always wanted to get a breast augmentation and when I finally decided to do it, I went to a consult with dr oschwald. Immidiatley he makes you feel comfortable and TRULY listens to what you want to accomplish. He always takes genuine time explaining everything and what to expect. He truly cares about his patients and their experience. BEST EVER!
Interaction with doctor and his consulting staff. They are top rate group..good staff, kind,caring and professional . And the Doc is a sweetheart.
It made me sad that my nose was so distorted. Truly sad. The change has made me more confident. I am not sad. I am happy with the outcome. I am not embarrassed by the way I look. . My doctor's experience, bedside manner, and the outcome of my surgery (aesthetically pleasing). I had two prior surgeries on my nose (at a different facility, that did not go well) which made me a bit untrusting and neurotic of the process and outcome. I appreciated the kindness, patience, and understanding, professionalism of both the staff and my doctor. I am happy with my rhinoplasty ! :))
The outcome. Pain is gone and I look in proportion to my body. I was nervous. The surgery was elective and would not only address physical problems associated with large breasts but create a new body image. The team put me at ease from the first visit. They answered medical and financial questions in a relaxed setting. The procedure was fully explained, post operative care and expectations were discussed over several office visits. Dr. Carlino acted as a coach in determining how to chose a new breast size but the final decision was mine to make. I elected to use the in-house surgical facility and am glad I did. The surgical room was spotless, the nurses excellent. I would recommend this practice to anyone considering surgery.
I am more confident in the way I look and feel. Dr. Russel and staff were very understanding of my concerns and explained everything so that I could understand. They were very professional and friendly. I have recommended Dr. Russell to several people and will have future surgery with him. They were very considerate to my husband while he was waiting during my surgery.
Fit better in desired clothing and boost in self confidence . Felt very prepared and confident. Very well cared for. Dr Daluvoy is the best!!!
The end result. Natural looking breasts that are proportionate to my frame. Dr. Russell listened to my wishes and made a tweak to help me look more proportional during the procedure. The person that made the difference in my total recovery and eased my fears both before and after waking up was the Anesthesiologist! He was FANTASTIC! He warned me about heaviness in my chest, which would have normally caused me to panic if I felt that when I woke up. He managed my nausea proactively. EXCELLENT experience. I love this practice and think Roger Russell is a super doctor... very real and authentic.
I was awake during this eyelid surgery. Dr Oschwald and his nurse made me very comfortable by explaining everything to me as they were proceeding with the surgery. . I have had several cosmetic procedures done by Dr Oschwald over the last 20 years. I would never consider going to anyone else. He is always very upfront about the results to expect. He discusses the procedure in detail and lets you know the positive and any negatives involved. I've never felt talked into" any surgery. He gives you the facts and then its your decision to make if surgery is right for you. I have referred several friends to him."
I was overall highly satisfied with most of my experience prior to and during the procedure, but I think post-surgical care could have been better. I felt rushed out of the recovery room (I realize that was to ensure I got pain medication on board as soon as possible, but perhaps pain medication can be taken before leaving recovery), and my first two post-surgical office visits with my surgeon felt rushed. I had a lot of questions but felt like I had to interject them. In addition, my physical examination was very brief, and it seems like it would need to be more thorough to ensure no problems are developing. I also felt slightly rushed when calling to speak with the on-call doctor and nurse during the week after the surgery. In comparison, the pre-surgical visits were very thorough and my surgeon and the nurses took more time to address my questions.
I think I look younger and it makes me feel more confident and I am aging. Everyone was extremely nice and highly qualified. I have been working at Duke Hospital for 40 years so I could have chosen a Duke surgeon but I have seen Dr. Carlino's work and highly respected him and his ability which made my experience calm and safe and reliable. He and his staff in my opinion hands down are the best in NC and I will recommend him to anyone that is wanting plastic surgery.
I do not have anymore pain. . Dr. Oschwald was so nice and caring towards me with the pain I was experiencing before having surgery. The whole experience was excellent and I feel so much better now for having the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Oschwald and I am so greatful to him. Thank you so much.
I love the way my clothes fit on my body now. I feel like I looked before my children. . I have had multiple consultations before I actually booked my procedure. I have always felt as if they wanted to understand exactly what I wanted and I truly feel that I was advised to do what I was best for the results I wanted. I felt respected, understood, and I felt that my health was a genuine concern. The level of pain I would experience was thoroughly discussed with me prior to my procedure and I don't feel as if I had any surprises.
More youthful appearance. Front office helpful and friendly. Amy was very knowledgeable, suggested product, it looks great, procedure was painless.
The friendly staff. This facility is top notch. Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. My physician was very thorough during the initial consultation and listened carefully to the results I was looking for. The surgical suite is nice and I was made to feel very comfortable by the nurses and anesthesiologist. The first evening at home following my procedure, I received a telephone call from the doctor to check on how I was doing and respond to any concerns I was having.The whole experience was positive and I would highly recommend them to friends and family.
I am no longer self-conscious about my facial appearance. I have known Dr. Oschwald for many years, and have always had tremendous respect for him. He is compassionate, understanding, personable and friendly. Never has he discounted my needs, fears or concerns.
Dr. Carlino was that perfect blend of confident surgeon and gentle care provider. 10 weeks post surgery I am giddy over how pleased I am with how it all went and how I now look.
From my initial visit to post op, Dr. O and other staff were very engaged with the entire process and comforting. they encouraged me to ask questions and I was never hurried. an excellent overall experience for my first plastic surgery.
Clear and concise communication. . I have the utmost confidence in my surgeon's training, expertise and manner. It is a highly performing professional practice, and I have no doubt I will return should I desire another procedure. Highly recommended.
My breast augmentation procedure went so wonderful that I would do it all over again. I felt pampered and cared for from beginning to end. Dr. Russell and his staff of nurses before during and after my procedure were very helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. They took the time to answer any questions I had. I felt confident in my choice to have breast augmentation at Specialists in Plastic Surgery. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming. I would recommend Dr. Russell to anyone who is considering to have breast augmentation. Thank you to the wonderful staff, Dr. Russell, and all the nurses at Specialists in Plastic Surgery!
I feel more confident and healthier. Overall care and concern to my needs were valued from my initial visit and thereafter the surgery. Dr. Blanton and staffs attention was greatly appreciated.
Pleased with my appearance now. My surgeon and staff always made me feel very comfortable and well informed during my surgical experience. My results looked very natural and I have returned for additional surgery.
I am more confident in tops and feel more feminine and happy in my body. I've wanted to have breast augmentation surgery for awhile... But never felt comfortable with the surgical part. I left my consult fully confident in Dr. Oschwald's experience and knowledge and knew I was in good hands. The pain was minimal... I actually didn't need pain meds! I am so thankful. I felt as if Dr. Oschwald listened, was so thorough in his consult, and very caring in his pre and post op visits. The facility is so highly regarded by me... Everyone is so nice and kind.
After losing almost 150 pounds I was very insecure about my chicken wings". Dr. Carlino and staff were more than helpful in explaining the procedure and making sure I understood that I needed to weigh the extra skin versus the scars. He did not want me to be disappointed after doing the surgery. I was able to call the nurse several times after surgery with questions and was always met with professionalism and good directions on what to do. Nurses always said to call with any questions. After my last visit I was emailed before and after pictures...I was blown away. I am very pleased and continue to use the merderma and tape. In a few spots you can not even see the scars. I have no second thoughts about the surgery and would highly recommend Dr Carlino to anyone considering this procedure."
The first procedure did not meet my expectations
Comfortable in my clothes . Dr Carlinos work is impeccable as is his interactions with his patients
Dr Carlino and his staff's personality. Dr Carlino and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable and at home before, during and after my procedure. I don't think I could have asked for any better service.
A breast reduction was one of the best things I have done. I'm very pleased with the results! Everyone we meet was super helpful and made me feel at ease about my procedure
Having a flat stomach again after 2 c-sections and significant weight loss! It's miraculous. I never thought it would be possible and am SO happy I had the surgery. I was truly impressed with the entire practice from the first phone call through the entire surgical and recovery experience. Dr. Blanton is such a great guy in addition to being a fantastic surgeon. He is so caring and has a great bedside manner. He took all the time I needed to answer my questions and concerns. I would recommend him to everyone and would definitely use him again for any other procedures.
Dr. Oschwald made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He listened to what I wanted out of the procedure and provided results for me to that end. Everyone was very friendly. It was a hard decision for me to make and they were patient with me.
The procedure went well and my face is looking much younger. The ease of the procedure and Amy,s great attitude.
Dr Daluvoy is such a thorough and caring doctor who truly listens and is very upfront and honest. Can't say enough about the positive experience, start to finish
Dr. Oschwald and his team are great! They spent as much time as I needed reviewing the procedure, answering my questions, and setting realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. I highly recommend him and would go back if I ever choose to have any other procedures done.
Dr. Oschwald is both a skilled surgeon and an artist. I waited a long time to have a body lift following gastric bypass surgery and loosing more than 170 pounds. I was realistic in my expectations, but my outcome is nothing short of a miracle. I look fantastic and feel fantastic! My husband has been very supportive during this entire process to be the best me, and recently told me You always looked good in your clothes, and now you look just as great out of them." What a wonderful thing to hear from the love of your life. Having recently turned 54, I can honestly say my very best years are yet to come. Dr. Oschwald is a treasure, and treated me with respect and kindness along with his professionalism. He was tough when he needed to be as I have a tendency to be assertive to get my way; but he was totally correct all thru my recovery. He was personally available for every question and concern no matter what or when. I love that he said he never ends the relationship with his patients, but they "divorce" him! What a concept from a physician. The staff was very attentive during the procedure and very concerned at the follow up calls in the weeks after. I highly recommend Specialists in Plastic Surgery, but especially Dr. Oschwald. "
Dr Carlino and his staff are very professional and offered the very best of information and care before, during and after my surgery. I have and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Carlino for any procedures anyone may be considering.
The friendliness of the office staff was amazing. Very professional and took the time to explain everything. I never had any doubt at any point I was not in good hands. I had no reservations come surgery day or any appointment post op. I could not be happier with the end result and will return for future procedures.
Great staff, professional and clean facility. My eyes are no longer heavy"!"
Dr. Carlino and the entire staff made me feel so safe and comfortable. I was scared and they eased my fears.
Dr. Blanton and staff were awesome. Never once did I feel uncomfortable or just like a procedure. My results were better than I had hoped.
I need a touch up - this may not have been the doctors issue.
the procedure was throughly explained and any questions or concerns were addressed w/satisfaction. my tummy tuck turned out great and i am very pleased w/the outcome and feel much more confident, mentally and physically.my recovery was almost pain free! this was the part i dreaded the most. if i knew it was going to go as well as it did, i would have had it done 10 yrs ago!thx dr. blanton
Dr. Carlino was amazing during my entire experience from pre-op to post-op. He communicated exactly what he felt he could accomplish without over-promising expected results. My results are better than I anticipated and I now refer to him as my miracle worker"! He was very reassuring the morning of surgery when it was apparent that I was nervous. The entire surgical team demonstrated a genuine sense of caring and answered all questions without hesitation. At no point did I ever feel rushed during my pre- or post-op appointments. I defintely recommend the facility and cannot say enough great things about Dr. Carlino. "
From the time I came in to inquire about my procedure to the time I was released from surgery and my post-op appointment I was always treated extremely well and in a timely manner. Dr Carlino was honest about everything I was going to encounter through out the surgery and always helped me to understand whenever I had any questions. The staff and anesthesiologist were extremely friendly, comforting and had excellent bedside manners.
Dr Blanton and the staff were fantastic. Every interaction we has was very positive and I appreciated the follow up from Dr. Blanton that evening. Thanks so much for a positive experience!
The staff was great the Nurse was compassionate and informative!
1st time really didn't realize how bad I was going to bruise and it stayed for about 3 weeks
I think Roger Russel is the Best!!! That's why I Returned to him . I think he made me look Refreshed and took years off my neck.I will continue to recommend him for all Surgeries
This was a long awaited thing for me. After visiting another practice ( before I learned about this practice) I could never schedule the appointment. After meeting the staff there and feeling Welcomed, I was excited to meet Dr. Blanton. He sat down and talked to me, not at me. He was very comfortable to talk to, he was confident in helping me reach the goal. He shared his thoughts and didn't force them on me. I knew when I scheduled my appointment I had made the Right choice about the doctor and place, I was completely at ease when I left.
Dr. Oschwald and all of his supporting staff were always courteous and professional, even on the weekend when I had to call the office, the on call physician called me back within 10 minutes. I highly recommend this practice to anyone needing plastic surgery.
Love Dr Blanton and entire staff that I have had contact with
Great consultation. The surgeon was professional and engaging. He was patient. I did not feel rushed as he assessed and discussed surgical options with me. He was inclusive as he also included my husband in the process. I felt well educated and at ease by the day of the surgery. Our subsequent postoperative visits have gone great. I look forward to seeing him and hearing his opinion of my healing status. He always answered my questions without making me feel stupid. Great experience overall. Very pleased with my results. Very please to be cared for in this exceptional facility. All staff I encountered were wonderful and treated me with respect.
I thought Amy was very professional and educated. It was my first experience and she explained what she was doing and why very well. i would recommend her to anyone.
The staff and Dr. Blanton made me feel completely comfortable. I was very nervous about the procedure but at ease anytime I was speaking to a staff members or the doctor. I'd recommend Dr. Blanton and his staff to anyone!
Everyone was friendly, kind and patiently explained procedures to me. I had a little allergic reaction a couple of days after the procedure. I got an immediate response from Dr. Russell and follow up phone calls for several days. I could not ask nor expect better care.
I was out longer than anticipated and some of my scarring which Ive been told can be corrected.
As noted in the answers, I received important information prior to and felt my procedure received appropriate attention from the physician and the staff. Consequently the results were as anticipated.
Very well informed and treated as a real person not number---
Amazing practice! Amazing staff!! Highly recommend!!!!
Dr. Carlino is the consummate professional with an exemplary bedside manner. He is personable and empathetic, friendly and engaging and he possesses excellent clinical skills as well. I am very comfortable with him professionally and he puts me at ease as if I were a friend.
The Dr, explained everything about the surgery. His staff took very good care of me. I am very happy that I chose him.
Caroline's first breast augmentation did not take due to an infection and it was devasting to her. Dr. Oshwald was so compassionate and reassuring that he would make things right for her and he was 100% true to his word. Her second surgery has been a success and his willingness to work on scarring if need be in the future was something he offered, not something we asked for. He is a wonderful surgeon and person and even though we had a small bump in he road, it has all been worth it. He truly wants his patients to be happy with their results. Thanks for everything you did for Caroline!
Dr. Carlino's reputation for his clinical expertise, excellent bedside manner, and excellent care. I also like he is realistic about what he can/can't do and why.
I felt like Dr. Carlino really took the time to listen to me and explain my options during my first consultation visit. I couldn't be happier with the results.
Dr. Oschwald and his staff performed 2 other procedures and I have been completely satisfied with the procedures and with the staff's friendliness and being so very helpful. If I needed another procedure, I would not hesitate in having Dr. Oschwald perform the surgery.
The experience was fine but the office would not make remainder calls or visits were short and not very personable. Comments or concerns were minimized and for the price paid I would have expected a more genuine care.
Dr. Carlino provided me with the information I needed to make my decision to have the surgery done and made the whole experience satisfactory. I was very impressed with his skill and very pleased with the outcome.
The staff was great dr Blanton was awesome he has great bed side manners called me from home to ck on me and answered all my questions I had and never rushed me threw like j was a number. I had a great experience
Very clean office, very nice empoyees. The dr went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met, my desires were achieved and he was so unbelievably professional, he made sure I had no worries or fears. Everyone at this office made my visits there welcoming, safe, and comfortable. I am forever grateful and thankful for this center!
Dr Russell and the staff at Specialists in Plastic Surgery were wonderful and I would recommend them to anyone looking for cosmetic procedures. I felt so comfortable with Dr Russell and was confident that I would get the results I was looking for. I am highly satisfied with my experience and results.
I'm an OR nurse so I have know Dr. Carlino for several years! He has always been very professional and doesn't seem to be in a hurry when you ask him questions.His staff was very understanding and answered all my questions!
Dr Carlino is very knowledgeable and has the best bed side manner, he makes you feel very comfortable.
From the moment I walked into this practice, I felt very comfortable. Meeting Dr. Russell only solidified my feelings. During the consultation, He examined my body to see which procedure would be best. I honestly felt that he was going to say I needed to have a thigh lift and a tummy tuck. Boy was I wrong!!! He assured me that my skin elasticity was good and that I could save money by just doing lipo. I am 2 1/2 months post op and I am overjoyed with my results!!!!! In fact, I am calling tomorrow to schedule another consultation for another procedure. That's how comfortable and pleased I am with his work.
The practice made my procedure very comfortable and was ready to answer any questions I had. Staff there is very professional and a pleasure to work with.
This practice is very well organized, professional and transparent about policies and procedures. Staff is friendly, available and helpful. Recommend highly.
I was extremely satisfied with my experience with Dr. Dulavoy and his team. From the minute I walked into the office, I was treated with care and compassion. Dr. Dulavoy is very thorough and relates to his patients really well. He explained things to me so that I could understand. We had at least 3 meetings prior to surgery and I have never had that type of experience with other offices. I would highly recommend Dr. Dalavoy and this office to anyone.
I think Dr. Daluvoy is the best. He established a partnership with me at the consultation and was an active listener through out the process. He was most concerned about my goal in having the surgery and asked after the surgery more than once if we achieved our goal. He was thorough during the consultation and has remained so throughout the follow-up. He is my hero! Dr. D was truly invested in my decision to have this surgery and my satisfaction with his work. Regarding my dissatisfaction, my partner and I met with a nurse on the day of the surgery just prior to the procedure. We were overwhelmed with the information she offered. When she demonstrated the use of the catheter, she lost us. We even told her so, and she just patted my leg - rather condescendingly. It was very stress-inducing. Must be a better way.
I am beyond pleased with my entire experience! Dr. Daluvoy and the entire staff made sure that I understood every step of the process, and had concern for my well being from start to finish. My end result is beyond what we ever imagined. Dr. Daluvoy worked with me to come up with my best options, but always made my medical well-being his first priority. He took my desires and concerns into consideration and even remembered the smallest details that we discussed. I would recommend him to anyone considering a procedure!
I think my surgeon is highly qualified with lots of experience
Dr. Oschwald took as much time as I wanted before procedure and after procedure.
Dr. Oschwald has always done excellent work. He is very candid about what and what not to expect.
Dr. Daluvoy is the most kind, thoughtful, and caring doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His attention to details and thoroughness was amazing but yet treated me like I was the most important person in the world. He knew how important my procedure was to me and treated me as an equal. We were definitely partners in this procedure from start to finish.
Everyone affiliated with this practice was patient, helpful, friendly and made me feel comfortable throughout each process. They acted as if they understood my nervousness even though they perform surgeries daily. They made me feel safe and special.
Dr. Carlino came out to my house the night of my surgery to check on the pain and swelling I was having in my left breast. He was so kind to do that. Although I had to return the next morning to have a hematoma removed, he made it so bearable along with Beth an his other staff. Just the overall compassion I felt about the entire event was wonderful.
My surgeon explained how the procedure would be performed and what to expect afterward. Everyone was very helpful and friendly.
Dr. Oshwald was very professional, informative and didn't sugar coat the results I would likely have with this being a revision from a surgery from another practice. I am more than happy with my results and wish I had come to him first.
I have already referred your practice to a friend. Your whole staff made me feel so comfortable and never tried to talk me into or out of any procedures. The doctor was amazing in making me feel like I have known him for a long time. I was very happy with how he gave me before and afters and talked about what would be appropriate for my body. He put my health first before anything and I have nothing but respect for him and the staff!
The drs and staff were very professional and I am highly satisfied with my results
Everyone in the practice made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout thr entire process. All of my questions and concerns were answered and I just felt really comfortable with the entire process.
The staff was very attentive. They care for their patients and they will call you or give you their cell number to call them. If you have a problem the staff or Dr. Oswald will call you back in five minutes.
Dr.Blanton spent over an hour explaining the procedure I wished to have and showed many before and after so just cannot say enough nice things about my experience
The staff was very professional and very friendly, something you do not see in every office. Dr. Blanton was simply amazing. He was very through about what I was to expect, and very compassionate. also something the you don't always feel. my overall experience has been truly amazing, considering what a wreck I was when I came to see him. thanks for an awesome job, well done. you guys rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a 34 year old mom of 2. I decided to have a breast lift and was very nervous about the procedure. I first met with Peggy and she was so kind and made me feel very comfortable. I then met with Dr.Russell. He provided so much information and answered all my questions. I left the office feeling very easy about my decision to go through with the surgery. I called later that day and made my appointment to move forward. I am so very pleased with the outcome. i could not have expected anything more. I only wish I would have done this sooner. I would recommend this practice to anyone. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for providing such a wonderful experience.
I was satisfied with my experience, because the doctor and nurses were attentive and conscientious people.
Everyone was kind, friendly, and informative.
Amy is fantastic ! A++, knowledge, technique, result & of course plan of care......Very talented in all aspects ! My new "BEST FRIEND". See you on 2/10/15 !
Had a lower face lift with Dr. Blanton. Have a little bit of skin on one side I'd like to have been tighter, but I am very happy with my results and think soo much of Dr. Blanton. He has the best bed-side manner and think hes a terrific surgeon.
Amy is very good at what she does makes you feel very comfortable, she connects with her patients
Amy took her time with me and really evaluated what I needed for my treatment plan. She insisted I come back for follow up so we could be sure I was happy with results. Plus, she's just the best injector I've ever worked with--a true artist.
Thorough explanation of procedure and follow through
Explanations provided; excellent follow-up; care and concern shown by Dr. Russell.
Mostly because the treatment showed superficial results. But.... I think I need to have the procedure done a few more times before seeing better effects.
Amy is really talented and always does an amazing job!
Amy is a very good listener and cares about her patients
Amy is always courteous and answers any questions I ask.
Amy knows me well.....is so sensitive to how I want to look. She is good at making sure we don't go too far with injections. I am such a baby but she is good with the injections. Knows what she is doing.....
I am always taken back for my appointment on time. Amy is efficient, pleasant and pays full attention to my questions. She's very professional and it's a pleasure to be her patient.
Amy is always knowledgeable and does a great job with injections, as well as dislpaying kindness and comfort. I enjoy my visits with her.
Amy is such a gifted injector and she herself is a good advertisement for the treatment products. She does not over inject herself like some other nurses in the building. This is refreshing.
Amy is very personable and really makes you feel comfortable. She took the time to discuss other treatment options in addition to the botox. She seemed genuinely interested in the results and my satisfaction.
Uneven result of dysport/Botox on forehead. Went back for correction, still wasn't ideal- but could not get time off to come in a third time. Then, feel like results didn't even last 1 1/2 months. I wonder if the bottles had been opened for a while?
I didn't notice any difference in the one area we did on my forehead. Amy was being cautious, which is better than over injecting. However, there was no difference even after the touch up appt. I still trust her judgement and will continue to go to her. We may just need to use more units next time.
Everything was above average. From appt. scheduling to check out. Very professional and friendly staff and provider was great.
Everything was outstanding. I do think all of the prices throughout the system are too high, and would be able to have some additional issues addressed were the costs less.I checked no" for follow-up consultation because it is scheduled for an upcoming date. Your survey should provide a place for that response.I was pleasantly surprised at the care, concern, and helpfulness of Dr Oschwald."
Dr. Blanton and his staff are top-notch. Dr. B makes you feel comfortable and is so encouraging through every stage. His staff is always available for any question or concern and really listens to you. I like how they tell you straight forward what to expect so there won't be any surprises. I traveled 2 hours one way to come to this office, now I know why. Hands down, one of the most kind and skilled doctors I have every had the pleasure of knowing.
Dr. Carlino and staff were very caring and made me feel very comfortable
All of the staff were well informed and friendly and did a great job of making me feel special. But Dr. Carlino was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge and how to communicate with me as a patient was rare. Coming to the hotel the morning after to check on me was just the kindest touch. knowing how sensitive women are to going out in public with their heads wrapped, he even took that fear away. I am most impressed with him and all of the team at Raleigh Specialists. I cannot brag enough on my experience!
From the beginning to the end, the attentiveness of the staff as well as Dr. Carlino was amazing. I am extremely satisfied with my results, and with the decision Dr. Carlino made to do what he needed to make my body look the best. He truly cares about each patients outcomes and listens to what is wanted. I never thought I would be able to have my body that I've been working so hard for. I can actually wear a bikini again!
From the moment I called for my first consultation to my last post-op visit, I felt confident I had made the right choice in Dr. Oschwald and his group. Staff are friendly and accommodating, nurses are experienced and non-judgmental, and above all, Dr. Oschwald is professional, approachable, and highly skilled. I am very pleased with the results of my breast augmentation and abdominoplasty and would return without hesitation for any future procedure.
The office provides great individual care. I always felt as though I was the doctor's only patient, his only concern during the time we worked together. I never felt as if I were just another patient or just another number. The procedure was explained to me at length. I always felt well taken care of.
fantastic results !Peggy is extremely professional and motivating.Dr Russell is excellent (I've had 3 procedures with him in total)Physician's assistant Bonnie is okay, but is not as personable as some of the others.
I've had augmentation at another practice. From the moment I made the first call to the time I recovered, every aspect was covered in a friendly, inviting, receptive way. I was really listened to. Extremely impressed! The surgeon was so friendly and made me feel calm. He held my hand and spoke to me in the surgery suite. I felt that he actually cared about me as a human, not a procedure.
Dr. Oschwald and his staff are AMAZING!!! I am completely satisfied with the results I have with my 'new' boobs. I went for a 'G' cup to a 'D' cup. I am only 25 years old and have NEVER been in the 'single letters' before. I am amazed at how great they look. He was VERY patient with me and THOROUGHLY explained it all to me and my boyfriend about what to expect. He and his staff are very professional and personal. They CARE! I never felt uncomfortable or nervous. They made it feel like a normal morning on the morning of my surgery. They have answered any questions I have had and made this whole experience easy for me. Fully prepared me for everything! I am thankful that I found Dr. Oschwald and his staff. I have already recommended 2 people to this facility. With my 'new' boobs life is so much better and all around such great experience. Life-changing! So much happier! Without great people to help guide and prepare me for this event, it may not have been such an easy process.
Dr. Oshwald helped me through my breast cancer, took over when I lost faith in another surgeon and repaired someone else's reconstruction implants. He was always there when I had concerns and in the end Dr. Oshwald was the one that got me out of pain and gave me back my life. I'll never to thank him enough for his help over the last 4 years.
I just felt very taken care of by Dr. Carlino and hisStaff. As well as results of the procedure were great.
Dr. Blanton really listens to you and sets expectations regarding the outcome. My outcomes have been at least as good as he expected and in some instances much better than I could have imagined. He is a very compassionate and skilled physician and the office team are very patient focused. Love these guys!
I can't say enough about how wonderful my experience was with Dr Oschwald and the entire staff. I am 63 years old and I have never looked this good. I lost a good deal of weight by eating a healthy diet and exercising for the last 6 months but because of my age and having had 2 children, I needed the surgery to feel good about how far I've come. Everyone should do all they can to prepare for this type of surgery...it's a reward. Dr. Oschwald is amazing and after only 3 weeks, my results are astounding. Yes, I would do it again and if ever in the future I should need anything else, I will come back to Dr. Oschwald. Peggy is an inspiration, the staff is wonderful and the facility is fabulous. The entire procedure was so thoughtfully planned. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure everything is as comfortable and safe as possible. I am so grateful for what they have done for me. My results are better than I could ever have imagined.
I was satisfied. I did not expect perfection due to my age (80).
I was provided with helpful information prior to surgery that helped me feel confident in following through with the procedure. My surgeon, nurse and staff made me feel very comfortable the day of surgery.
This was my first face lift and I am happy with the results overall. As I follow up with some skin care routines at the SPA, I am sure I will be over the moon!
The staff and doctors listened to my concerns and helped me through every step. I felt completely comfortable during the whole process. My results are everything I hoped for and more!
I must have hit wrong key. I am satisfied. The problem I had has nothing to do with my care. It was my body recovering was te problem
Dr Russell was my surgeon, Lisa was my pre-op and surgery nurse and I worked with Peggy in the beginning as well. They are all wonderful! Dr Russell listened to me about exactly what I wanted the outcome of my surgery to be and he did a fantastic job. He is very gentle and caring and I felt like I was in great hands with him as my surgeon. I'd definitely suggest him to anyone thinking of having a procedure done. Lisa was a wonderful nurse and did a fantastic job of preparing me during my pre-op appointment for what to expect before, during and after surgery. They gave me so much information on paper and that was extremely helpful to both me and the person who took care of me after surgery. Lisa was great following up with me after my pre-op and then right before and during surgery. Peggy was the very first person I met when I came in for my consult. She was great and so helpful in explaining to me how things worked because I'd never been to a plastic surgeon before. She was supportive throughout the entire process and even called me the day before surgery to wish me luck and make sure I was ready. Dr Russell has a great team!
I was impressed with the professional staff, their attention to detail, their efforts to make me comfortable and answer all questions clearly. Having never had surgery before, the staff's coordination and professionalism made me feel that I was in good hands with nothing to fear. Everything went exactly as described before and after surgery. Recovery has been as described, and I am very pleased with the results. Would definitely return to Dr. Oschwald for any future procedures and highly recommend Specialists in Plastic Surgery.
I'm just one week post surgery. So far I'm very satisfied with the results even though I'm swollen. Time will tell!
Dr. Russell tookAs much time as I needed to discuss my procedures I knew exactly what to expect before, during and after my procedure. Office staff and nursing staff are all wonderful.
Dr. Russell made me feel very comfortable and confident in his skills throughout the process. My breasts are a perfect size. I went from an A to a full C. Dr. Russell knew how to make them look natural. I really don't feel like I've had surgery. Thank you Dr. Russell!!
Dr. RUSSELL is wonderful! Everyone is so helpful and kind. I will definitely be back.
This is something I have wanted for myself for a long time. I was treated with respect and everyone was very professional and helpful. I never felt embarrassed to ask a question about my procedure, or made to feel uncomfortable during this experience. I'm extremely happy with choosing your practice and with the results.
Dr. Oschwald was very sympathetic to my situation and did everything possible to correct it. My most recent visit was to correct a breast that had to have the implant removed after it started to come out 3 months after surgery. After waiting an appropriate amount of time, Dr. Oschwald, at his expense, replaced the implant and continued to watch it like a hawk! It this time, the implant is doing what it is supposed to do - stay put!!
Everything went very well and i'm happy with how they treated me. My inexperience with surgery and post-operation did worry me; however, they comforted me and told me that everything went well.
Everyone was professional, friendly, considerate, informative, and caring.
I had a great experience with Dr.Oschwald and staff. I highly reccomend him to all of my friends. If I ever choose to do any type of surgery again I will def. be returning.
Dr Oschwald was great, he spent a lot of time with me and answered many questions in two pre op visits. He was honest, he told me about the positives and the negatives.
This was the second procedure I have had that was performed by Dr. Oschwald. Both times I was very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the entire staff. I had no problems and only minimal pain and discomfort after both procedures. I have had two other surgeries in the past that were performed outside of North Carolina (one cosmetic and one not) that were both horrible experiences with a lot of pain and a lot of problems recovering. With Dr. Oschwald and his staff, it was very nice to have a positive surgery experience for a change. I would highly recommend Dr. Oschwald to anyone considering plastic surgery.
I was 100 percent happy with Dr. Carlino and his team. I just wanted to look perfect and that isn't always possible. If they could use their magic wands to get the perfect score...next time. And yes I will be back for a next time and I've already had two friends come to him for various proceedures.
First I would like to say that I would rate this experience as outstanding. The surgeon and the entire staff are awesome. They service provided was impeccable and we feel so blessed to have come in contact with this office. It was discovered by talking with another facility that highly recommended Dr. Oswald for this procedure. The office personnel, nurses, patient coordinator and Dr. Oswald are truly God sent. The entire appointment and scheduling was truly divine ordered. Dr. Oswald is the best doctor we have ever met. He is truly genuine and has a heart of gold and cares so much about the patient. He needs to be cloned. There is not enough space to write in this section to describe the experience. We thank you for such wonderful service and will forever appreciate all that was done. The services were superior and my son is very happy with this change. Thank you again and may God bless the entire practice.
Concerned about the use of my arm. Concerned that my breast may be to small now and I popped stitches during my bout of sickness.
I was satisfied with my experience until the swelling went down my bump is still very noticeable and I'm having a really hard time breathing out of my nose now. I also have started snoring I never did before and now I do.
It was very thorough and I feel that every facet was covered.
Every aspect of my experience was perfect. The staff were friendly and efficient. I never had to wait for an appointment. I had no pain and was on regular tylenol post op day 2. Dr. Carlino and his staff explained everything and had me prepared for all possible post op issues. I had NONE! The surgery itself went perfectly. I am 100\% satisfied with the results. My only regret is that I waited this long to have the procedure!
Dr. Carlino and his team where amazing. My procedures and recovery were so worth it. I would do it over again.. Highly recommend Dr. Carlino for any plastic surgery needs.
Just felt overall comfy w decision, part of my procedure (the extended) did not have to be preformed and I received a refund.
The tummy tuck and liposuction have been life changing for me. I was thoroughly impressed with Dr B, Peggy O'dell and the entire staff.Based on the pre-op meetings, I was 100\% ready for surgery and I'm thrilled with results! Dr B was so personable, professional and available.
I love Dr Carlino and the rest of the staff were great too. I had an issue after my surgery but he got me back in and helped to resolve the issue.
Dr O and his staff are without question the most professional, extraordinary team of care givers I have ever had the privilege to meet. As a former practice manager, it am extremely aware of proper procedural compliance and patient satisfaction. Don Oschwald goes above and beyond to insure that his patients are treated with the utmost respect. He is a brilliant, compassionate surgeon and I would recommend him and his outstanding staff to any and all looking for the best of the best" plastic surgery experience. "
Dr. Blanton and his team are warm, friendly, knowledgable and really listen to what your goals are - he is very honest with you in terms of what he thinks your outcome will be (although I must say that it was even better than he predicted!). You always reach a person when you call the office, if you have any concerns they get you right in to take a look. Peggy is an absoloute sweetheart as well - makes you feel right at home. This was my first in office surgical experience and wow - so much different than the hospital. Anesthesiologist with a great sense of humor (and skill), walk into the OR, get onto a nice warm table, and then you are out until it's all said and done. My experience couldn't have been any better - I was well informed of what to expect, my recovery went as expected, I'm thrilled with the outcome and the team is all so friendly. Everyone that I have interacted with at the practice has been wonderful. Love them!
Dr. Russell was so great to work with - he really listened and understood what I was and wasn't looking for and respected my wishes throughout. I have been very pleased with the results and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
I am very pleased with the outcome of my procedure. The staff was very friendly and helpful and overall it was an excellent experience.
I am so happy that I chose Dr. Blanton to do my surgery. I knew from the first consultation that I was in good hands. I'm now almost 3 months post op and am so thrilled with my results! I've recommended him to so many people since!! I'll definitely return should I choose to undergo another procedure!
The entire staff is made up of REAL people who live REAL lives and it showed! Everyone was highly confident in their abilities but very careful to listen to me and my concerns. I appreciated the balance between being human and being professional! Thank you!
The staff, nurses and doctors were very accommodating and helpful. They listened to every question, request and fear I had and provided thoughtful and accurate feedback. Additionally, the practice is extremely well taken care of and made the experience pleasant.
The staff and surgeon were highly competent, very informative and answered all of my questions and concerns completely. I had all the necessary medications for use post operatively, and was able to contact the office and physician when I needed anything.
I think Dr. Oschwald listened to me and my concerns. I do think as the patient you need to make sure you know exactly what you want and not leave it up to anyone else to make decisions.
Dr. Oschwald and his staff, such as his nurse Katie have been incredibly professional, helpful and warm throughout all of my surgeries. The surgeon has a keen eye for perfection during surgery and his staff has been nothing but wonderful as I've recovered from each surgery.
Felt very comfortable with doctor and staff during my procedure.
Dr. Blanton and his co-workers were very professional, compassionate, understanding, polite, and knowledgable regarding surgical procedures and follow-up. Would definitely return to this practice if ever I consider further cosmetic sugical work.
Dr. Carlino and his staff are the absolute best! I can not give enough kind words to describe my experience.
Professionalism of entire staff, experience and skill of Doctor, comfort level and confidence in Doctor, Easy payment options, Number of options in regard to surgery (breast augmentation), time spent with Docorr during initial consult and detailed explanations given, extraordinary level and care and concern show by all.
I just explained that; the pre-op debacle and the fact that the surgeon said he could eliminate 70\% of lip lines and did not come anywhere near that. Basically he pitched fat transfer on my face although I originally went to him for laser treatment on my upper lip. The fat transfer was marginally helpful. I want to say, also, that I do believe that Dr. Carlino probably performs very excellent facelifts - and I would have accepted his backing away from the laser treatment. As it is, I feel I wasted my money.
Everyone was positive, professional and very welcoming. I always felt that I could contact the office at anytime if I ever had a question or concern. Very happy with everything...
Hi! Everything went so smoothly! I really liked Dr O and I really liked my eyes!! The entire office environment and friendly staff made the experience very pleasant and I have already recommended your center to several people. Thank you for the great experience...
I was impressed with Dr Oschwald's bedside manner and attention to my desired outcome.
Dr. Blanton was awesome from start to finish. He answered all my questions, even when I asked the same one fifty times. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Even though the surgery was something I really wanted, it was a big step to take. The staff and Dr. Blanton walked me through the procedure step by step and I am so happy I did it.
SIPS is without a doubt a state of the art facility, but more importantly, the staff is friendly at every visit, call you by name and greet you with a genuine smile. The office atmosphere is comfortable, warm and and even luxurious with chandeliers and plush furniture in the waiting room...nothing about SIPS feels like a doctor's office, if anything, it feels like a spa! And the best part about SIPS is Dr. Blanton, my plastic surgeon. He's simply the nicest, humblest, and most down to earth doctor I've ever seen AND he does EXCELLENT work! I recommend him to EVERYBODY!
Overall great experience with all aspects of the practice and staff.
Dr. C. and staff attention to detail was outstanding. All were concerned about making sure I was totally comfortable and that I understood everything; no question was too small. Dr. C. especially made sure I had the best experience possible. My results exceeded my expectations.
The surgeon was was very informative about what I was to expect and all the staff were very cordial. I thought the price was a little too high.
I was given a lot of pre surgery attention and information verbally and in writing so I did not have any surprises that had not been covered previously.Dr. Carlino gave me his undivided attention during my appointments. He has a very competent, calm and reassuring manner.
Dr. Russell spent endless hours working with my surgical procedures to ensure I received the results he knew I expected. He was meticulous, respectful and personable to my individual needs and questions...My recovery was as he anticipated...minor repair to my eyelids however....the look was not overdone" and he knew that was a great concern!Thank you Dr. Russell!!!!!"
Third procedure. Happy with results. Friendly, professional, caring experience.
Dr. Carlino is an exceptional surgeon and a kind person. Additionally, everyone in the office took great care of me before, during and after the surgery. I always felt like my concerns were heard and attended to with care. Peggy is also really willing to listen and very helpful. I wish I could think of more things to say because I can't say enough about how great EVERYONE was to me.
The results are not as I had pictured in my mind. I wish more fat would have been taken out of all 3 areas I had done.
I love my results! The entire experience was so smooth and easy. Peggy, the patient coordinator, was very thorough and complimentary, putting me at ease from the beginning. Dr. Carlino took much more time during my consultation than I expected or had received from other consultations. He was honest and realistic about the surgeries I was researching. I never felt up-sold." Dr. Carlino actually recommended against a tummy-tuck because he didn''t see that I needed it (and he was right!) where another doctor was ready to do the surgery without question. I also wanted inner thigh liposuction. Dr. Carlino was very thorough and honest about potential results. I had several questions between my consultation and surgery. The staff answered emails and phone calls very quickly. My breast augmentation is EXACTLY what I asked for! The size is perfect for my figure and looks so natural, yay! Dr. Carlino also performed laser liposuction of my inner thighs (lifelong problem area!!) and lower stomach. The results are fantastic! I am so pleased with the entire experience. I would recommend Dr. Carlino and Specialists in Plastic Surgery to anyone looking to improve his or her body! "
I think Dr. Carlino is excellent, beside manners are awesome. Listens to you and doesn''t promise unrealistic outcome, even though I think he knows it will be wonderful. Staff very friendly and professional. Quick appointment and scheduling of the surgery. Money well spent. I was very fearful of the surgery before hand, however the day of, the nurses in operating room and anesthesiologist were amazing. I had no fear at all the day of surgery. And to me that was very important. I absolutley love Dr. Carlino.
Dr Carlino is the best. Always helpful and kind. Thorough and efficient.
nothing went wrong and happy with the results!
My dad is currently having cancer surgery, the care his surgeon has given him compared to my experience is night and day. I knew before surgery what was and what could happen to me. The patient education was phenomenal. I also have never had to wait more than 20 minutes for someone to call me back with answers to my questions. Dr. Carlino made me feel 100 \% comfortable. I will recommend this doctor to anyone and everyone who ask.
Everyone on staff was amazing. Dr. Blanton was so helpful and attentive to all my questions and knew exactly what I wanted! Everything went great and I couldn''t have asked for a better experience or outcome.
All staff was very courtious and helpful, especially the nurses and Doctor in answering my never ending supply of questions and concerns. The Doctor was very knowledgeable and down to earth. Told you the best type of surgery for the outcome you wanted.
Dr Carlino was so kind and considerate of my goal and how to get there. The staff in and out of the operating room were wonderful! They made me feel as relaxed as I could in a situation that was so scary to me. I felt they were connected to my thoughts and concerns. I felt supported and safe. It has been an experience far better than I had expected. I am pleased with my results and glad I did it. I highly recommend this group of great people!
The doctors and staff are very friendly. They answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. The waiting area is very pleasant and the operating room was very clean and efficient looking. My overall experice with both my surgeries has been very good and I am pleased with the results. Thanks to all involved!!
Everyone that I had interactions with during all visits and the day of surgery treated me like I was the main focus. I felt well taken care of during the entire process. Loved the staff and the results are amazing.
Dr. Carlino and his staff made my whole experience wonderful and rewarding. Dr. Carlino is an outstanding physician! I am highly satisfied with my results! He has truly changed my life! I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone that is in need of his expertise! All they have to do is look at my new body! It is a testament to his skill and his expertise.
My facial surgical experience exceeded my expectations with Dr. Carlino, and the entire staff at Specialists in Plastic Surgery. Dr. Carlino's surgical expertise, the anesthesia staff, and administrative support was exceptional. Here is what I was looking for: 1)A strong reference to a surgeon with exceptional skills and character- Dr. Richard Carlino listened with care and has great surgical skill; 2) A dedicated CRNA to administer and monitor my anesthesia- this question should be asked; 3) Friendly support from staff- (they were great and treated me with importance pre and post surgery!) 4)reasonable costs; I am extremely pleased with my outcome. The absence of saggy skin on my lower jaws and neck area, absolutely make me look healthier and gives me confidence of looking my personal best. I do not think I could have been in any better hands and care. I am very, very pleased!
Staff professional and respectful.Highly skilled surgeon.
Surgeon is highly skilled and always makes u feel important. He listens and gives feedback. Always answers questions thoroughly . The whole experience was great and the results even 2 months out r awesome. I've had numerous positive comments and am very satisfied.
Dr. Carlino was SO kind, thorough and willing to listen to make sure I was comfortable. I loved how he would come in and hold my hand or a quick second before we started our appt. So sweet :)The anesthesia guy was awesome. Super nice fella, gentle getting me all setup for my 'cocktail' - he was amazing.You better believe when it's time for my tummy tuck I'll be coming back to Carlino!!
the staff including the anesthesiologist were very professional friendly and respectful I appreciated the doctor's experience or should I say end up the experience of the specific procedure I was obtaining
My concerns were dealt with, I felt I was treated well
Dr Blanton was awesome! He was thoughtful, intentional with conversation and very thorough with his follow up on the first night post op.Peggy was great too.
Very professional and caring atmosphere,Dr Oshwald and staff were very efficient,organized,and skilled! Very pleased with the whole experience and results!
Great office staff. They were all super helpful and you could tell they loved their jobs and patients. Extremly pleased with my interactions.
Dr. Blanton is fabulous on all fronts- he listens to patient concerns, addresses those concerns thoroughly, sets reasonable expectations, and is technically very skilled. I couldn't be more pleased!
Dr Carlino is someone I have known and respected for a long time. He is kind and respectful with me. His surgical skills are very good. I have been very satisfied with both procedures he has done. His staff and set up are also excellent.
everyone made you feel comfortable and at home
Dr. Carlino was amazing! This was my first elective surgery, so I was quite nervous. He and his staff were extremely comforting and took their time with me. I am thrilled with the outcome of my procedure. He has fantastic bedside manner and I would highly recommend him to anyone! If I have any other procedures in the future, he is the only one I would ever consider using! LOVE them at Specialists in Plastic Surgery!! Thank you!!!
Overall, I am very happy with the experience; The only thing that could have been better were (1) the pre-op visit. The nurse who did mine was so busy going through her checklists and having me sign that it was not until after that I realized I had unanswered questions about what meds to take the morning of my surgery. I do not recall being given one particular person to contact afterwards, that would be a nice touch, although, as I said, I am very pleased with my experience. Thank you
Communication of the doctor was outstanding and his expectations of the results were honest and fair. Follow up by office staff. Clear notes and things to follow up on were given to the person taking me home.
Love Dr. Oschwald and this practice. Everyone is so helpful, kind and considerate. I have had numerous procedures performed by Dr. Oschwald at other locations and have always felt their compassion and received excellent follow-up care.
Very informative, attractive surroundings, positive testaments from personnel in the office that had the same procedure done, and a surgeon (Dr. Oswald) that was patient, fourth coming with comments about what procedure I would benefit most from verses what I thought I needed.The initial contact person was very cordial, and assured me I would be pleased with the end results. The gift bag was a nice treat.
Loved the friendliness of everyone involved with the surgery and expectations were met.
Amy was good at explaining the procedure, and kept me informed throughout the procedure. Was professional and caring. Explained what to expect following the procedure.
I initially felt that this type of surgery was frivolous, especially at 66 yrs. of age. However, with my husband's encourage, I decided to explore my options. Every step of the way, from my first phone call to set up an appointment to my last post op visit, the team was attentive, informative, set realistic expectations, and made me feel like I was making the right decision. I am very pleased with the results and appreciative of the entire staff.
Made me feel comfortable and welcomed. I didn't feel nervous. Very friendly and answered all my questions that I asked. Also my results are what I wanted. He made sure he knew exactly what I wanted so he could do his job. I couldn't be happier with my new boobs!
This practice is amazing! Peggy made me feel like we were friends forever and make me so comfortable and welcomed. Ashley was great with scheduling. Everything went so smoothly. Bonnie and Katie, the nurses, were always available if I had questions. The OR staff and CRNA couldn't have been nicer.Dr. Carlino is the greatest doctor!
Everyone was very nice. I did not feel uncomfortable in any way and I am very pleased with the result.
I choose the practice because of Dr Carlino reputation but also the former patients (and friend) who was so highly satisfied. I cannot say enough words how happy I am with the decision but choosing Dr Carlino!As a patient the most important motivator is hearing other patients, it is a huge factor at the time of the election. Thank you all for your attention!
Dr Oschwald and his entire staff are so caring, helpful and informative.I could not have asked for a better experience. I will definitely returnif I need further treatment and will highly recommend him.
Great from beginning to end. I never felt rushed or hurried by ANYONE involved in pre op, or post op from the girls at the front desk to the Doctor(s) involved in the surgery. hey we're all very accommodating. I have recommended this practice and will continue to. Love Dr. Oschwald!!!!
Dr Carlino has a great bedside manner and is experienced in what he does and answered all my questions with explanations.
The entire staff was great Could not have had a better experience any where else.
I was highly satisfied with my experience because everything was timely and everyone was very kind and informational. The process was made simple due to all the people that were around to help.
My stomach still looks just like I am having a baby. It didnt take much fat away. Even when I went back to discuss this he told me what he could do if I lost more weight and how much it would be. I felt as thought he should have cut me some kind of deal for the amount of money I had already paid. Vey dissatisfied with the out come. I would not tell any of my friends because we all look the same and I was looking to have looked liked a millions bucks after everything but still I looked like a fat cow.
All questions answered thoroughly and as much time as needed was taken with me until I understood everything about the surgery. Surgery went very well and all instructions pre and post were very specific.
The experienced staff was professional, kind, and understanding.
I loved Dr. Carlino and his staff. They were friendly, knowledgable and highly competent. Dr. Carlino was so nice on the day of my surgery and helped me through every step. My augmentation looks completely natural.
highly skilled surgeon with excellent communication skills (Dr. Carlino)competent and supportive staff and wonderful facility
Dr Russell managed my expectations and delivered exactly as he describes. Further, he seemed to be the most knowledgable of all the surgeons that I consulted with.
This was the best surgical experience of my life. I wish I could have all my surgeries performed in your facility. I experienced very little pain on waking from anesthesia and wasn't nauseous due to all the premeds I received. I woke up WARM!!! A huge issue in past surgeries. Everyone was very friendly and encouraging. Dr Oschwald is an excellent surgeon and I hope to have more procedures performed by him in the future. I recommend him to everyone I meet who is interested in plastic surgery. I also had a breast lift, eye lift and fat injections. The second procedure went just as well as the first. Thanks for the great experience and results!!
The entire staff n every way were super. I felt like I was important to them and made me very comfortable. Love Dr. CARLINO.
One of the areas that I pointed out to the doctor is actually the same as I went in and I'm still needing the garment to wear under my clothes today. I wanted to contact t the office but felt uncomfortable doing so, I decided to just deal with it instead of complaining to the office/nurse/ Doctor...
I really appreciated the kindness giving by the staff. Dr. Carlino was very warm and caring. He made me feel very comfortable with his care.
Everyone at this facility was very polite and very helpful. Dr. Carlino is very caring and a very good surgeon. He performed an arm lift and muffin excision on me and I am very pleased with the results. I have already scheduled another surgery (thigh lift and blephorplasty) and have recommended him to friends. Everyone, the receptionist, Amy, Peggy and Dr. Carlino were very professional and very knowledgeable.
I am extremely please with the outcome of the surgery procedure I had. Everybody in the office was very helpful through every step. I would definately come back if I were to have another procedure.
I am so happy with my results and Dr. Carlino was wonderful! Thank you!!!
The surgeon and nurse were the nicest and most comforting people I had ever met. They made sure that my needs and concerns were heard. I received many calls after surgery just checking up on my recovery. I am so elated by the results and I have already recommended this office to some friends.
Everyone was very freindly, they smiled when entered the office. They were very thorough when giving information and made me feel very comfortable (in-fact special). I've never had a more positive surgical procedure.
Everything was the way I expected. the whole experience.I thank every one at the clinic.
All of the people I met at Specialists in Plastic Surgery were gracious and welcoming in addition to being skilled in their work. As I wrote earlier, Dr. Oschwald was especially attentive and kind, and the results of his work are very natural-looking while being effective and well-worth the time and money. Every few days my husband either says, You look so pretty" or "You look so young". I received many compliments at my daughter's recent wedding. I would highly recommend the practice to friends."
The area under my eyes where I had the chemical peel is still red. Other than that I am very pleased.
My GP highly recommended Dr. Oschwald. During my consultation, my husband and I were very impressed with not only Dr. Oschwald but his amazing staff as well. He took great care to listen to our concerns and answer all of our questions. Everything went smoothly and I've recommended this practice to friends and family. My only regret was that I didnt do this sooner. Very pleased with results and very thankful to Dr. Oschwald.
Highly Satisfied does not even begin to describe my level of satisfaction with Dr. Blanton and my surgical experience at SIPS. He is the sweetest gentle-soul surgeon and I'm so glad to have found him. Although he has been practicing in medical school for 16 years, I love that he uses and brings to the practice all the latest, and most current research-based best practices in plastic surgery. I realize he's a new doctor, but he's fresh, modern and current; and I want that and he's a texting doctor! One thing about my surgery that really left a lasting impression with me was the last minute before going under anesthesia, I remember him holding my hand...I literally felt in my head and in my heart, that I was in good hands; very skilled hands actually. As far as his skills, I cannot express my appreciation for his in-surgery decision-making. Dr. Blanton really listened to what I wanted and what I didn't want and made decisions around that DURING my surgery and I could not be more grateful. I didn't love my breasts before and now I L.O.V.E. them, they are perfect and Dr. Blanton made them that way! He is a gifted surgeon that's a truly genuine and caring person.
Dr. Blanton was professional and friendly, very knowlegable and confident without being arrogant. I appreciated his attentiveness to detail and he answered my questions thoroughly and competently. I really enjoyed working with him and all of the staff. Thank you!
All the staff makes me feel very special, comfortable are very attentive to my needs. Dr. Carlino is very thorough, detailed and knowledgeable. He wants his patience to be satisfied and does many follow up visits and phone calls after surgery.
Dr. Carlino listened to all my concerns very patiently and addressed them all providing very useful feedback. I have had several procedures by him and I think the fact that I keep coming back to him for my plastic surgery needs speaks to my confidence and admiration in his work. Patient coordinator, Peggy, couldn't be more delightful to work with. She was so very helpful and patient with me while I tried to plan and schedule my procedures.
Dr. Carlino is phenomenal. He is honest, non judgmental, understands budget issues and takes times with his patients ensuring that they're well informed and comfortable. He is such an understanding person. He is also brilliant and his work is unparalleled. He is an extremely skilled surgeon and a wonderful person.
From my very first appointment I was comfortable and felt well informed of the procedures and expectations. I was particularly impress with Dave, the NA that adminsitered the anesthesia and pain meds. I couldn't believe how thorough he was and how much time he spend making sure I was prepared, mentaly. He was just down right cool. The nurses were great as well. I am so happy with the results that I have become motivated to lose 10 lbs and even started running. I feel like I can acheive the body I want now that I have had a little help! I am over the moon about the results of this surgery and recommend Specialists in Plastic Surgery to all my jealous girlfriends!!
High praise for Dr. Carlino and all the staff.
The entire staff has made me feel comfortable since the beginning and throughout my surgical experience. Greatly informed b4, throughout and during my recovery. I would recommend the kind staff to anyone interested n plastic surgery. Thanks especially to Peggy, Bonnie, Ashley, Beth, Lisa & to my special surgeon Dr. CARLINO. This group of folks are friends for a lifetime. Thank u for everything.
My surgery went vey smoothly. I am very satisfied with the outcome and best of all, they look and feel real.
My surgery went better than I imagined. My recovery time was fast. Everyone at the practice was very professional. I am highly satisfied with the results .
I came back to Raleigh from High Point to have my surgery because I was very happy with the staff and the Doctor during my last procedure.
Dr. Blanton and the entire practice is very friendly and helpful. It doesn't feel like you're going to a doctors office. The practice provides a very comfortable feel.
my overall experience was highly satisified and I am considering other procedures in the near future.
Dr, Carlino and his staff did an excellent job of communicating information pre and post operatively. I felt especially comfortable prior to the surgical procedure knowing the expertise of Dr. Carlino. Thanks go to him and his talented staff.
I was pleased with the overall professionalism of the office staff, nurses and Dr. Carlino. He was patient, kind and respectful of my expectations and questions. I believe he truly wanted the best for me individually. The time he spends and the level of personal interest he takes in ensuring your needs and expectations are met is so very important. Everyone there made this a positive experience from start to finish.
Dr. Russell's reputation as a highly skilled surgeon along with his patience, friendliness, and ability to discuss and listen to my concerns made me feel confident and secure in my decision to have the surgery. The whole staff is professional while friendly and caring. I definitely will recommend Dr. Russell and Specialist in Plastic Surgery to my friends.
Everyone was wonderful from the very first visit, This was my second surgery. I was very pleased with my eyelift surgery and returned for the face/neck lift. Dr. Russell was recommended to me by a co-worker. I live three hours away from Raleigh, but the trip was worth it to receive such great care by true professionals.
Dr Carlino is an excellent surgeon and I would recommend him to anybody for any type of plastic surgery needs.
The Doctor and entire staff were great before, during and after my surgery. I felt like I had known them forever and was comfortable with all the staff.
Rich is a caring, thoughtful individual who makes you feel informed, comfortable and in skilled hands
I felt cery comfortable in Dr Oschwald's experience, expertise, and insight to deliver the best possible results from my procedure. His staff is very well-educated and professional. I felt like his practice is in place to improve patient outcomes, not for making money. I know several patients who have had procedures at this practice, and they all look natural and tasteful, not like they have had work" done. "
Not necessarily in order. The person that brought me was very complimentary about the way the post op procedures were explained to her. I very much like the setting of the room prior to surgery. I felt from beginning to end I was interacting with a highly skilled and professional team. Excellent follow up. Beautiful work, I would recommend for the practice and the doctor to any of my friends.
Dr. Carlino and his staff were wonderful. Dr. Carlino has a wonderful bedside manner. He's very up front and straight forward, but he's also very kind and caring. He gave me plenty of time to ask questions and also made me think about things I had not previously considered. I'm extremely pleased with the results of the surgery and would highly recommend Dr. Carlino to anyone considering a tummy tuck or hernia repair.
Dr. Oschwald and the whole team made me feel super comfortable and my recovery was incredible. I was in pain for a very very minimal amount of time and I was able to carry on with work and my daily activities several days after the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a breast reduction.
Every step along the way far exceeded my expectations. I have never met a more friendly, warm, caring staff in my life! They were informative, personable, attentive, professional, took time with me . . . .and just transformed the entire experience into one that was actually pleasant!" I went in due to a sudden need for replacement (from a previous surgery many years ago by another doctor in another state). So I was somewhat nervous and expecting a "surgery" type of experience. Instead, I came away feeling cared for and "pampered!" In addition, Dr. Russell did an FANTASTIC job!! His judgement and precision went far beyond my expectations and I was MORE than pleased with the results. I just can't say enough about how positive the whole situation was and I would highly recommend Dr. Russell and his staff!"
I am a breast radiologist with Wake Radiology, and frequently speak to women who ask me about my opinions regarding plastic surgery. Having had multiple procedures performed bt dr. Carlino I can unequivocally recommend your practice to patients. I have even recommended you for surgeries Othman than breast surgery when the conversation meanders in that direction. I am a walking advertisement for your practice having transformed myself in a little over 2years with diet, exercise and surgery for those things that diet and exercise don't fix.. Thank you so much.
I got a great result! I do not understand the question about wait time, which is why I checked other." I had to wait several months to get on Dr. Carlino's schedule but no waits in the office. I have no complaints about my experience. "
This was my second surgery with Dr. Carlino. As a female in her 40s, I found his reassurance that I wasn't being overly vain a huge plus. I like to feel good about myself and not be made to feel bad about it. His entire office has such a positive and supportive attitude. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
EVERYONE I SPOKE WITH WAS VERY COURTEOUS AND MADE ME FEEL AT EASE WITH THE PROCEDURE THAT WAS TO BE DONE. THIS ALSO CARRIED OVER TO THE FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS. I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. THANKS
The surgery went smoothly and the staff was very friendly. The surgeon contacted me the later in the day after my surgery to check on me and to see if I had any issues/questions. The nurses were quick to respond to voicemails. Recovery went as expected and as it had been explained to me.
My experience with Dr Oschwald and his staff was wonderful. From the pre-op appointments, to the procedure itself, and the post-op follow-up and availability of Dr Oschwald and his staff to answer my questions, this practice is 100\% focused on patient care and satisfaction. Additionally, the nurses and the anesthetist that were present during my procedure were incredible - they made me feel so comfortable and calm. I give this practice my highest recommendation.
From the moment I met the patient coordinator I felt comfortable. The staff remembers your name and they were knowledgeable and friendly. They offer discounts to military members and the price was manageable. Doctor answered my questions and showed me options; he seems to really care about my needs and my desired outcome. They made appointments that worked with my schedule and accommodated with my travel distance. The entire experience was just great and I am totally satisfied with the center, my doctor, my procedure, and the outcome.
The entire practice is so friendly and kind all the way from the front desk to the surgeon. They all make you feel very .comfortable and make you feel like you are No. 1.
I have never waited more than 3 or 4 minutes when I have an appointment. I had concerns about the size of implants (being too big). I got exactly what i wanted yet it was clear that Dr. O would not have done surgery if I had expectations that were false. I appreciate that. Had no bruising and recovery time was very short for me.
Dr. Oschwald was great to work with. He took the time to answer all of my questions and listen to my desires and goals. I am still healing, but I am thrilled with my results thus far. I enjoy Dr. Oschwald's fun personality, and his nurse, Katie, is awesome. I am happy with my decision to have the surgery as well as my decision to have Dr. Oschwald do my surgery.
Dr. Carlino exudes confidence and inspires confidence--precisely what I want in a surgeon. Period.
The facility was very clean, nicely furnished, a good first impression. I never felt rushed; I could ask as many questions as I liked, even coming back in- which I did, and I felt I was heard, and surgery proved I was! They were there for me. The nurses, most especially Katie, were just the best!!! Apt times were pretty good as I work and needed to come in late in day. The whole experience was just great, I felt like I got the best care I could. I appreciated Dr O's beside manner and his humbleness" if you will; most plastic surgeons (I had consult appointments with 4) have an inflated ego which turned me off."
My sergeon was very professional and listen to all my concerns, and answered every question. He personally called me that afternoon after my surgery to make sure I was doing fine.
I could not have asked for a better experience. For years, I have dreamed about having a rhinoplasty. My nose was not in proportion with the rest of my facial features, and gave me a hard look." I had several consultations with other surgeons before I met Dr. Russell. He listened to all of my concerns and made me feel so comfortable. The entire staff was AMAZING. Peggy was a pleasure to work with. The nurses were great! After 27 years, I finally feel like my nose "fits" my face. I would recommend Dr. Russell over and over again! "
Everyone at Specialists in Plastic Surgery from the admin personnel to the doctors & nurses are wonderful. I could not have asked for a better experience with the procedure and everything before and after. I highly recommend Dr. C and his staff :)
Dr. Russell's work turned out excellent. We were very happy with the perfect results. I am ( Mom) going in to see about getting the same procedure, and more. We couldnt be more pleased with my daughters results. She was completetly recupurated within two weeks, with no bruising, and very little swelling."
Overall outcome was even better than expected!
I felt that what I wanted was to have a positive and peaceful experience with this Dr. as well as with the procedure. He helped me to understand what he would be able to do for me and why it would be the best procedure for me. I gained confidence and had the courage to go through this operation because of all the help and support I got from Dr. Russell and his staff.
