liposuction

I had liposuction of my hips and thighs last year and I couldn't be more satisfied. I went to the office at lunchtime and had it done while I was awake. I left 4 hours later without my big thighs. It took 8 weeks for the swelling to fully go away but I can now wear skinny jeans instead of full ones. the staff couldn't be more caring.

I HAVE BEEN HAVING FACIALS WITH LUCY FOR FIVE YEARS AND SHE IS THE MOST WONDERFUL FACIALIST I HAVE EVER HAD. I HAVE ALSO HAD BOTOX WITH DR. SOBEL MANY TIMES AND LOVE IT! YOU NEED TO SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS AT THE SLOWER TIMES SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT.

Highly unsatisfied!

Had a VERY bad experience with this doctor. He kept me waiting for almost 2 hours. I received injections (fillers) and suffered from bumps and swelling for weeks. They finally went away but there was no visible difference on my face. I was highly unsatisfied with the procedure's results, which in my opinion were far below standard. The office staff is terrible, rude and gossipy.

Rude and unprofessional!

This Dr. really truly is not good. I didn't know he was an inexperienced cosmetic surgeon. I had injectable from him and looked bad. When I told him about it, he became defensive and very difficult to talk to. What's worse is that Dr. Sobel doesn't seem to care. The office staff is THE WORST I've ever encountered. They are rude, unhelpful, arrogant, and no one seems to be accountable for anything there.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
