5 Stars  It takes awhile to get an appointment (>3mo), but I was able to get on the cancelation list and cut that time down. The consult was unlike many "clinical vibe" scenarios in that Dr. Surek sat down comfortably in front of me and explained exactly what he could do for me. He was prepared with a video presentation that showed both in animation and an actual surgery, what would happen should I decide to move forward. He explained pros and cons and said he follows his patients for an entire year post opp. You can tell he is passionate about his craft, confident in his abilities and at the same time a straight shooter. I was expecting a significantly higher price tag to be honest, but what a pleasant surprise to receive a break out of fees, with full transparency without needing to even ask. There is no "sales pitch" with Dr. S, no high pressure to schedule quickly like some other chop shops in town. Dr. Mirable referred Dr. Surek, which speaks volumes in and of itself. Needless to say I've scheduled my 50th birthday gift to myself and can't WAIT to see the results. ❤❤❤ –
