5 Stars  I went to Dr. Surek for a consultation. The desk staff was welcoming and friendly. Next I saw Chloe who took my medical history, she was professional and kind. Dr. Surek came in next and patiently explained the entire process, answered all my questions and provided me with additional information as well. He was professional yet personable and very confident, he considered himself to me extremely meticulous. That was very important to me because honestly, he’s doing things to my face, I need that level of confidence in any doctor preforming surgery! Needless to say, after the consultation, my concerns were alleviated and I scheduled an appointment first thing the next morning. –
