I took my friend with me and went for dr Roarks consultation in La Jolla. I decided to give him a try based on his extensive experience, reputation, the awards and achievements he has received and the patient reviews. I had millions of questions and I was very skeptical. I just wanted to be very sure it's all worth it and that it's a right doctor before doing it. I must say I was very impressed by dr Roark and his assistant. He has a very vibrant and positive personality and excellent communication skills. I felt welcome and he took all the time to listen me, really understand me and answering all my questions I had. He was also honest and i didnt get the impression of him as a salesman. He didnt desparately try to sell me anything and I truly appreciate this fact. We also talked about skin regimens in general and greated a strategy for me how to target my problems and preserve all the good what I have. I found he had an extraordinary eye for details. I was impressed that he himself and his assistant were the true believers in the procedures they do since they do it all themselves and they both looked great! His actions surely talked louder than his words. He encouraged to take my time and do some more research which I did. I returned to him after couple of months and I was now ready to do the procedure. To be honest, I was super nervous. But they took a good care of me. I was very impressed how he studied my face and how quick and precise his movements were. He really cared. Dr Roark has got a new happy loyal customer for life and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends. Nobody has asked me to write a review but I just feel I want to express that great experience. I also know how important the reviews can be for the people who are considering that procedure and are choosing a specialist for that.

When I started looking for a reputable plastic surgeon last year, I knew I wanted someone who's work I could see on other people. I had multiple friends tell me about how their friends had breast augmentations and how natural the girls looked. When I asked them to refer me their surgeon and they ALL said Dr.Roark, I knew it wasn't a coincidence that his work was exceptional. I met him and his staff, and let me say that as soon as you walk into the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery center, everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. They will help you with ANYTHING you need. As soon as I met Dr.Roark, I knew that I wanted him to perform my breast augmentation. Dr. Roark went to great care and detail to make sure I looked as natural as possible and nobody could even tell I had surgery. Dr. Roark and his staff were incredible and I would recommend him to anyone!
