5 Stars  Decided to go to Dr. Surek for filler. He is great at explaining what he is doing, and involves me in the process so that we are both in agreement with the look we are trying to achieve. He is very skilled, professional, and personable. I won't be going anywhere else, but to him. Truly a gem, as well as the entire team!!!! –

5 Stars  I was referred to Dr Chris by a very dear friend who by the way is truly a stunning woman. Went in to discuss the possibility of having a facelift and my eyelids done…did it and so happy I did. I look fabulous 🥰 Afterwards, discussed with Dr Chris my disdain for my c-section scar after two children which runs vertical. He assured me I’d be delighted with the results & all that extra skin would be gone & my clothes would fit better. While at it we decided to do reduction of my breast. I am over the moon with my results. Dr Chris is a skilled surgeon, an educator for those in the field, a communicator and he honestly cares about each of his patients. If you are on the fence about the possibility this type of treatment is for you, go see Dr Chris. Talk to him about your concerns and get his opinion. Then do it, don’t wait until you are a 67 year young woman like me. This is not a dress rehearsal go ahead and put yourself in his care. –

5 Stars  Walking in to a surgical consultation, you are filled with questions, doubt and fear. I wanted to make certain that my cosmetic surgeon was as concerned about my body, the outcome, scars and general well being as I am. I am choosing Dr. Surek to do my surgical procedures because I now believe that I am in the best possible hands. I believe that his goals for me align with my own and that my results are going to far exceed my own expectations. I cannot wait to update this post with testimonial that describes me and my most excellent body because I am worth it. –

5 Stars  I was referred to Dr Surek by the person that does my Botox and fillers for many years now. She said she sees a lot of plastic surgeons incisions with her customers and Dr Surek’s incisions were phenomenal! Then at my consultation with Dr Surek, I knew I had the right doctor for my procedure. I’m so very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and so pleased with Dr Surek and his staff. They are wonderful! If you are contemplating a cosmetic procedure, you will not go wrong with Dr Surek! –
