    Frileck, Dr. Stanley P.
    I love that no one would ever guess I've had cosmetic surgery. Also I appreciate that when I suggested a face lift the first time, he told me it was too soon for that because my skin was not that bad yet. He said he'd let me know when it's time, and he did (6 or 7 years later.) I first had my eyes done (upper and lower), and a forehead lift and I was thrilled with the results...particularly because I just looked good and not "done"! Six or so years later I had a full face lift done and again I was pleased. Then again last year I had the final touch up. I was very impressed with Dr. Frileck when he told me it would be the last time because it could begin to look unnatural if I did any more. He then told me with a smile that I'd one day I'll be "the best looking ninety year old on the block!" Not only is Dr. Frileck ethical, meticulous and honest, but it appears he truly loves his job as well.

    I never felt pain and have never been able to see any scars.  The second surgery was for the correction of Mohs surgery for basil cell cancer at the end of my nose.  Kaiser gave me 3 unacceptable choices to close the dime size hole at the end of my nose. I ran to Dr Seify who did an amazing job to restore my nose.  I have never felt at home in a doctor's office; however, Dr. Seify and his staff make me feel like family.  He has recently added Dr. Elkeeb, a dermatologist, to his staff.  She also reflects the same genuine concern for her patients by taking the time to listen and making helpful suggestions for their health.  I love going to this office and would more than highly recommend these doctors and their staff!

    Newen, Dr. Peter N.
    Besides the good results from the surgery, I also have a very minimum pain in my body. Off course, it was sored and unconfortable but after the first few days, it's subside pretty fast. I didn't have to use as much pain killer as I thought. The only complaint that I have is the anxiety attack that I had few hours after being discharged and Dr. Newen didn't offer any medicine for it, instead he told me to stay calm but I couldn't. Also, Dr. Newen seemed a little moody. Sometimes, he is so nice and easy to talk to. He spends a long time talking to patients, explains the procedures or clears any misconceptions; other times, he's little hard to talk to. However, I don't really think those are important! We all have good and bad days. I strongly recommend this Surgeon to any one. In fact, my sister will have her surgery with him in the next few weeks. I don't think any other surgeon will do a better job than him. You'll thank me for this!

    McConnell, Dr. Michael P.
    I can hardly say I enjoyed the experience, but he was just a super nice guy and an excellent doctor. He is young, up on everything and very current. He doesn’t deal with billing himself. I would use him again in the future if I were in need of a similar kind of service.

    Tom Flashman MD
    When I first visited Dr. Flashman I wasn't sure I needed surgery. He was not quick to jump on the surgery option and in fact we tried a number of options to correct my problems - some prescription drugs, some natural (which I appreciated). When it was clear surgery was the best fix, I scheduled it. The doctor went to great lengths to reduce bleeding during and after surgery -- as a result I healed faster than I ever expected (week and a half) with almost no facial bruising. I usually bruise extremely easily and they take weeks to go away so I was really surprised when I was out in public so soon after surgery. I'm now a month after surgery and am breathing better than ever -- and sleeping better as a result. Dr. Flashman clearly takes pride in his work, really focuses on function above all else. I couldn't be happier with the result. One more thing -- he called me at home on the weekend after surgery to make sure I was doing okay. Do doctors even do that anymore? It was so nice to have a doctor who is great at what he does and really cares about his patients.

    He is funny and interesting. He understands of what woman might be going through wanting plastic surgery.

    Dr. Yun did surgery on my wife removing thyroid. Was very efficient and there was no post op complications. Was attentive while wife was in the hospital and would greatly recommend overall.

    Christine Petti, MD, FACS
      Dr. Petti did my 'Tram Flap Breast Reconstruction'.  That means I got a tummy tuck and my extra tummy material built my breast.  Then, I got a saline implant in the other breast to perk it up to match my new one.  Dr. Petti and her staff were fabulous.  I was there for many appointments and was treated like a guest every time.  Dr. Petti was very exact about my preparation before surgery down to what soap she wanted me to shower with before surgery.  She had me taking vitamins and minerals weeks before surgery.  She instilled in me the ability to totally trust her.  She was a phone call away after I went home and was having back spasms.  She called to check on me or made sure a nurse called me.  She gave me encouragement which with everything else she did, gave me my life back.  She is the best and she surrounds herself with the best. Since then, I have gone in to get several skin peels and facials---I loved every minute of it.  I felt very pampered.  Yes, you should call ahead to get in for a consult.  There's a reason her office is so busy.  She has been voted 'Best Plastic Surgeon in South Bay' several times, Top Doctor in U.S. News & World Report among other awards.  Expect to wait a few weeks for an appointment but, if you request it they will call you in the event of a cancellation.

    Nitta, Dr. Katharine C
    When you first enter the office you are greeted by a very pleasant receptionist. You don't sign in because they say "We Know Our Patients". Dr. Nitta was referred to me by very highly respected, and experienced doctors and surgeons. Dr. Nitta was the first doctor I consulted with about the possibility of having an Abdominoplasty procedure (tummy tuck). I found her to be very warm, attentive, and knowledgeable. She did not charge for the consultation. She provided me with a lot of information about pre surgery procedure, the surgery itself, and post surgery procedures. I heard of a woman that had a few procedures done and died. She cautioned against having multiple procedures done at the same time. I then consulted with twelve more surgeons from Beverly hills, Culver City, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Anaheim Hills, Huntington Beach, etc. None of them provided as much information as Dr. Nitta. Ironically, her price was half of most of the other surgeons. I returned to Dr. Nitta and told her that she was my first and last consultation. By this time, I had heard of another death. Again, she calmly reminded me of her having cautioned against multiple procedures. In May 2008 Dr. Nitta performed my tummy tuck. She referred me to an out patient care facility for a couple of days. Initially she examined me weekly, by monthly, then monthly. A year has passed and she sees me once a month to soften one area that keloid. I know many people that have had the procedure done, but none of them have received the services that I received from Dr. Nitta. All of them paid for more for less.

    I would definitely use him again. He is an artist when it comes to doing this surgery. He made sure I was happy with my breast and took everything in consideration when he reconstructed me. He is funny and nice and extremely caring. You don?t get the feeling that he does this for the money. He genuinely cares about his patients and his staff is just as supportive. He is always available. I have called him in the middle of the night and it didn't faze him at all. I highly recommend this doctor and will use him again in the future.
