I chose a perfect rating because that was my experience with every visit. I found him on line. His Medical crudentials are above all other doctors I researched and was extremely impressed. You will be also. Definately look up his medical backgroud. Unbelievably Impressive. Dr. Kass has a wonderful personality and makes you feel reassured. Had fillers injected by other doctors and there is no comparison. Dr. Kass is by far the best. I will always have Dr. kass for my special beauty needs. I recommend him with extreme confidence and If you chose Dr. Kass you too will also see his expertise and be completely satisfied. He literally changed my life. I had upper hollowness of the eyes and because of Dr.Kass he has turned the clock back at least 10 yrs. He's a brilliant doctor. I will def. use him for a plastic surgery proceedure in the near future. His staff also has an impressive follow up, should you have any questions. I have not found this professionalism at any other doctors office.

The experience was far superior to any others for me. He is compassionate, skilled, and talks to you like you matter, unlike so many others. Thanks to a wonderful skilled physician, my nose is now normal looking after many attempts and Drs. later. I am thankful to have found Dr. Kass. He actually listens!!! A pleasure to have found him. A great result! I have looked for years to find someone to help me and have been turned away by "skilled" cosmetic surgeons. He is wonderful. Linda Spiller

Finally I have found a doctor who is good at what he does, takes the time to educate me on what to expect as the end result, listens to what I want, and over-delivers on every procedure performed. I feel lucky to have found Dr. Kass and his staff!

I am a Nurse Practitioner and have been in health care for over 20 years. We all know good physicians and bad physicians but there are few Great physicians. They are the ones with not only excellent medical or surgical skills but also the compassion and communication skills to make every patient and every member of the patient's family comfortable with the process.

Have been treating with Dr. Kass for several years. He is professional, takes time to understand my requests and more importantly makes sure to explain thoroughly what results I can expect. The S lift, eyebrow lift, eyelids and lip plumping options are varied and more importantly I have had great results. I get many compliments, feel and LOOK youthful and regain confidence that the aging process can take away. Dr. Kass is careful to make certain I look youthful without looking like I had work done. I also find him to be a kind man, a good and ethical human being. If you are looking for aesthetic treatment Dr. Kass and his staff will help guide you through the process. They communicate by telephone and email regularly and are knowledgeable and willing to work with hectic schedules.

As a working professional it is always difficult to get away from work...especially to have a cosmetic procedure. Dr. Kass and his staff always work with me to arrange my appointments near lunch to minimize my time away from work. That is a blessing. Dr. Kass is also Board Certified. It is so important to have work done by a fully trained and experienced physician. I am a repeat, happy and loyal customer.

From the moment I met Dr. Kass I was impressed with the professionalism of his staff and of the doctor himself. All of my questions were answered and my fears and concerns were addressed. And!!! At no time did I feel rushed or pressured. In fact, I was advised by Dr. Kass to go home and discuss things with my family before making a final decision.

Dr. Kass is an excellent surgeon. everyone can't believe how much better I look and how much my vision has improved. His office staff is very efficient and called me the day after surgery to check on me. I have already referred one of my friends to him. the procedure was basically painless and I took some Tylenol once the day of surgery and that was it. I would have no problem returning for an other procedure. My insurance covered the procedure also.

I feel so fortunate that I found Dr. Kass. His work was professional (I'm so happy!), his prices were reasonable, I never felt that he was rushed or didn't have enough time to answer my questions, and he's genuinely a nice man! I was a bit scared going in but after having some work done, I can honestly say that I wouldn't go to anyone else.

Dr. Kass is a very skilled surgeon in St.Pete and Clearwater area in Florida. His staff is very professional and friendly. I highly recommend him to anybody who's considering facial fillers or treating the under the eye area. I'm very happy with the results every time.

I have had many visits to Dr. Kass and his staff. My treatments have ranged from the simple (botox), lip filler, to the not so simple (lower lid surgery) and I can tell you that every experience has been absolutely wonderful. Dr. Kass and his staff all take the time to get to know you as a person, they are always smiling and pleasant and always take the time to answer any questions and take care of all and any needs.

I found Dr. Kass on the internet while doing about two years worth of research on different doctors who I thought were qualified to perform my surgery. From the moment I went for my consult and meeting his dynamite staff I was comfortable from the very beginning. Dr. Kass answered all of my crazy questions and made sure I understood the entire procedure from start to finish. Best experience for an out patient surgery.

Dr Milns reccommended him. Dr. Kass and his team of caring associates guide you through the entire process and make having your sugery seamless. I would reccomend Dr Kass to anyone needing any type of procedure. It has made me see better and look better. Wish I had done it years ago. I am currently going to have some skin cancer on my hand taken care of there.

I found Dr. Kass after doing a little background research. I wanted a doctor who was respected and revered amongst his peers, and would not over-promise results in an effort to sell me on products and services that I don't need. I have been very happy his his suggestions and matter-of fact approach.

I chose him for my plastic surgery because he had done such a great job with the restylane injections beneath my eyes a year ago. I chose him at that time because I researched him, liked his website (it had a personal touch, not just the usual) plus I read all the other rave reviews on realself.com. By the way, his staff is great too, I loved working with them! Dr. Kass is the best, he really is! Based on my experience, I would recommend Dr. Kass to all my friends and family and to anyone else seeking a doctor who combines 27 years of experience with natural ability and skill, and a great doctor/patient manner as well. If you're like me, once you've made up your mind to have plastic surgery, the hardest next step is how to select the right doctor. This is a huge decision, I know--and you cannot go wrong by choosing Dr. Lawrence Kass.

I did extensive research prior to using Dr. Kass. He was well accredited and known for his excellent work. I first found Dr. Kass while researching specifically plastic surgery for the eyes.I did extensive research prior to using him. He was well accredited and known for his excellent work. I went to Dr. Kass for a fill in my mid face area with silikon 1000. A little below my eyes as well. He surpassed my expectations and gave great advice about my expected outcomes. I felt comfortable each visit, and would recommend Dr. Kass' work to anyone!
