Office staffs are professional and friendly. April was the most attentive, Vicki was also very personable. Dr. Teitelbaum was professional and knowledgeable.

Dr. Teitelbaum is clearly the most qualified, talented, and experienced surgeon in Los Angeles. The level of expertise at which he speaks to the surgery is very comforting as a prospective patient.

I felt supremely confident I was in the best hands for this surgery. The entire process was thoroughly prepped and recovery has been seamless.

I just really appreciate talking to Dr. Teitelbaum. He spends the time, he answers my questions and makes me feel very confident in my choice to pursue this procedure with him as my doctor.

Breast Augmentation

I have experienced a very professional and friendly staff from the beginning till the end. Dr. Teitelbaum answered all my questions thoroughly and most importantly he showed me that I can trust him! The results speak for itself and I can not be happier! Great job!

Breast Augmentation

The doctor listened to what I wanted and gave me exactly that. He has a natural approach to his procedures and was very honest with me. [Single best thing is...] The simulated augmentation before and after.


Dr. Teitelbaum and his team are amazing! Everything from Dr. T talking through the procedure to his reception/waiting area to his nurses and everything in between. The office is beautiful, the staff knowledgeable and Dr. T is a total rockstar!

Breast Augmentation

Amazing experience! I had literally no pain and the whole process was like being at a luxury day spa. I felt incredibly well cared for and, from a patient experience perspective, I could not have had a better experience. All of the staff, in particular April, were caring, knowledgeable and highly experienced. [Single best thing is...] The staff, the surgical experience itself and the before / after care process.

Breast Augmentation

Doctor and staff above and beyond. I chose this specific doctor because of his qualifications. Very satisfied with results. I gave him photo and he matched it perfectly thank you! [Single best thing is...] Prior to surgery everything explained. Post results amazing!


My recovery was very easy and the pain was minimal. Dr. Teitelbaum was very clear with the post-surgery care instructions, and I was able to follow them easily. The results are what I wanted, and I haven't had any complications since the surgery in terms of infections, etc.

Breast Augmentation

The entire process was very smooth and easy to navigate. The surgery and recovery were very easy and I am happy with my results. Dr. T was extremely professional and his staff was wonderful and professional.

Breast Augmentation

Great to speak to Dr Teitelbaum via a telephone consultation, looking forward to meeting in person

Neck Lift

Doctor seemed knowledgeable experienced. It must be hard to describe what some one needs from pictures. Seem like it is more than I need.

Breast Augmentation

As someone who had never had surgery before or even been put under anesthesia I was so very grateful for how they prepared me to undergo the procedure. The informational booklet(s) they sent out after my consultation and scheduling of the surgery were my constant companion whenever I got worried or anxious about what would happen. The nurses were so friendly and helpful with any of my 'silly' questions. I never had to worry about what was going to happen, how much the cost would be, etc. and that was a huge weight off my shoulders as I am a worrier! There was never a moment where my questions couldn't be answered (and the answers always came from solid experience and education and were never vague or assumptive). I was always made aware of what the implications would be if I went bigger or smaller or didn't follow their directions. All the nurses had personal experience and were so friendly! I'm rambling and wish I had known this was a huge review as I don't feel I'm doing justice to the great service they provided. The best thing was their streamlined process. Everything was ready and setup like a well oiled machine. They had all my questions answered in their provided materials (website, mailed info, etc.) before I could even ask them. I felt I was working with the most experienced office and that was what made me feel so ready to undergo the procedure.

Breast Lift

[Highly satisfied] because I just felt connected to the doctor the staff. It was an amazing experience

Breast Implant Revision

[Highly satisfied with...] VICKY!

Breast Reduction

Dr. Teitelbaum and Vicki were amazing...Vickis is always replying to my questions and is very friendly and knowledgable

Breast Implant Revision

My experience from surgery through present day was superseded! I had breast revision surgery. Approximately 10 yrs after my initial breast augmentation/lift with Dr. T. I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Dr. T and his team of nurses, anesthesiologist and coordinators are top notch. It doesn’t get better! I would not recommend any other surgeon more highly. I’m soooo happy! You’re all truly an “All-Star team!“
