5 Stars  I'm not sure if there will be enough room for all of the wonderful things I can say about Dr. Surek. To start with, he was the 3rd doctor I had a consultation with, and he was honest about expectations, to the point that I changed my mind on a couple of things I was determined about doing a certain way. From the time I consulted with him, to my surgery, I felt incredibly comfortable with him. He is kind, and considerate, and it's very clear that he genuinely cares about his clients. To be totally honest, that is what sold me on his services. The other surgeons I saw were also talented as far as I could tell, but Surek really cares about his patients. The evening after my surgery, Surek called my husband from his personal phone and made sure I was feeling okay. Each followup appointment has been thorough, and my end result is wonderful. If you're considering a cosmetic procedure, look no further than Dr. Surek. –

5 Stars  Dr. Surek is outstanding. He was referred to me by a doctor friend from another city. They have worked and taught together. My first experience was botox. The injection was painless! I was ready to meet friends for lunch immediately! No bruises! Dr Surek is caring and very patient oriented, as is his staff. I highly recommend. –
