The surgeon I chose- Dr John Apostolides was the best fit for me. He spent the most time explaining the procedures in detail before he examined me. He was the only one that met me fully dressed. His office staff was great. I felt very comfortable with him and I am happy with my decision.

From the minute I met Dr. Apostolides, I new that I had found the doctor that would perform my breast reduction. I am a 76 year old female that had been searching for the right doctor for many years. Because of my age, I requested to stay in the hospital for three night. Dr. Apostolides was there first thing in the morning, as long as I was in the hospital. It didn't matter to him that he was traveling from far each day to visit me before his day began at his practice. He was very comforting and concerned for my overall health. My neck and back pain is completely gone and the bonus is that my breast are absolutely beautiful. From what he had to work with to the end result, is amazing! He is truly passionate about his work and I feel very blessed that my daughter found him for me!

Dr. Apostolides is warm, knowledgeable and professional. He worked with me through every appointment in selecting an appropriate size and shape of implant for my body frame and for the natural look I desired. The entire staff at SK Clinic is so kind and responsive, I could not have asked for a better experience. My surgery went smoothly, my recovery was trouble-free and I love my new look- everything turned out perfectly. I would highly reccommend Dr. Apostolides and am so lucky to have found him.

It is with great appreciation that I write this letter of recommendation for my surgeon Dr. Apostolides. I can’t imagine having gone through this process with anyone but him. I chose him because he is patient, kind, hard working, knowledgeable and simply an artist with his skills in cosmetic surgery.
