Are you a patient of Christopher Kolstad, MD?
Dr. Kolstad was absolutely wonderful. He spent a considerable amount of time answering my questions and addressing all of my concerns. I have an intense fear of numbing medicines since the numbing sensation triggers my panic attacks but I was also unsure if I was prepared to try Botox without a little help. Dr. Kolstad was very understanding of this and did not rush me through my options and gave me the time I needed to think through my decision. I felt comfortable enough to try it without the numbing cream and it was a PERFECT experience. I will definitely go back for future treatments when I'm ready.
Dr. Kolstad was very welcoming and answered all my questions. I didn't feel rushed. He made me feel very special.
I got the "lunch time" peel from Dr. Kolstad. It's a chemical peel which just sits on your skin for a few minutes and after a few sessions gives the result of a major chemical peel. It works for me because I am really active and can't take a week out of my life to heal from a major peel. Dr. Kolstad is really patient and sits and explains the process and he encourages patients to call at any time if there is a problem. I really enjoy going to his office it's a great atmosphere and his assistant is really nice and helpful. She called me after my first appointment to make sure everything was going OK.
Dr. Kolstad made this venture feel more like a friendship, rather than a doctor patient arrangement. He took the extra time to address all my fears and questions. I am so gracious for the time and effort he put into making me feel comfortable with the surgery and the recovery following. I was touched by the personal calls and emails inquiring about my healing progress and my peace of mind. It is important for a woman to feel beautiful at any age, and he gave me back the youthful look that I longed for. I would more than recommend him to any person considering plastic surgery and I would definitely go to Dr. Kolsatd again for future procedures if the opportunity presents itself.
This was, without a doubt, the best experience I've ever had going to a doctors office. I am thrilled with my spectacular results and will definitely go to Dr. Kolstad in the future.
I choose Dr. Kolstad because of his humanitarian work. I went back to him because I liked the results I got as a result of his expertise. I've been to a few dermotologists and plastic surgeons, some of them recommended treatments and procedures that were in the doctor's best interests, not mine. Dr. Kolstad has not done that to me. Because of my experiences with him so far, I am comfortable to report that Dr. Kolstad has shown himself to be ethical and genuinely concerned that his patients get the results they want. Also, he gave me an enormous amount of his time to thoroughly and graciously answering my (many, many) questions about a neck and face lift procedure.
I have been seeing Dr. Kolstad since November 2013 and will never go anywhere else! I could not be happier with him and his assistant Jaina. Having had many previous experiences with facial plastic surgeons in the San Diego and Los Angeles area, I can confidently say this has by far been the very best experience in every possible way! After many months of online research, I decided to go see Dr. Kolstad for how impressed I was with his before and after pictures. My initial consultation was flawless, Jaina was very sweet and helpful, and Dr. Kolstad amazing. He listened patiently and intently to my goals and concerns, and yes we took pictures, which is exactly what needs to be done in order to have cohesive understanding and planning!!! In fact, I really appreciated the time, effort, and attention since enhancing facial features is such a big deal to me! After my flawless procedure, I was shocked to find that the results surpassed my expectations! I have found Dr. Kolstad to be an outstanding plastic surgeon, he has an impeccable eye for natural beauty, balance, and form, paired with attention to detail, effective listening, and genuine care and concern for his patient’s well being and satisfaction. Jaina has worked tirelessly with me on making appointments due to my hectic schedule, and they have both made me extremely comfortable during each visit and cared for after. I absolutely, highly recommend Kolstad Facial Plastic Surgery!
Dr. Kolstad's technique and philosophy seems to be natural, subtle and not over-done. He is very generous with his time and patient in answering questions. I've never felt rushed with him or like just a number. I'd recommend him to friends and family.
Dr. Kolstad is truly a professional in what he does. I am out of the office about 15 minutes after the scheduled appointment, and he still answers my question fully. Even when I forget to ask something, his line is almost always open and he will take the time to answer my questions, even if they might be slightly ridiculous. Overall the surgery went well, and I am excited to see results!
