What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Barone did an excellent job. I am only 3.5 weeks post-op and I am still healing, but I don’t look like I had a facelift, or my eyes done; I just look refreshed! The staff is very professional and knowledgeable, and I have never felt rushed through my appointment. It has been an extremely positive experience and I am already contemplating my next procedure!
Dr. Barone did my neck, chin, lower face lift/ facial chemical peel. He did a fantastic job. My face/neck looks so natural! The office staff are so nice and helpful. Everyone took their time with me answering any questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Barone and his staff for any procedures. The best thing about my surgery is that it looks very natural.
I feel like there is nothing that was overlooked in patient care with this practice. The Patient Coordinator explain everything that was going to happen thoroughly before the surgery was scheduled. The Nurse walked me through the procedure step by step and explained what I should expect over my recovery period. The surgery went smooth and the outcome is astonishing. Dr. Barone is truly an artist. Also, I really liked having the Home Healthcare nurse with me during my first 24 hours of recovery after the surgery. I was very well taken care of. The pre-surgery vitamins and post-surgery meds kept me comfortable and help speed up my recovery. The follow-up visits were reassuring and allowed me to see visually the progress I was making. I feel like I receive very special treatment by all of the staff members. I definitely will return if I decide to do any more surgery in the future.
