Internet search. What intrigued me about Dr. Ross was the amazing reviews I read online. After my consultation, Dr. Ross made me feel very comfortable and safe (which is important when choosing a doctor). Dr. Ross knows what he is doing and is amazing! I definitely recommend Dr. Ross, you will be very satisfied!

He was recommended to me by a friend. Dr. Ross spent a lot of time going over options for breast implants and he was very informative. Dr. Ross has been very kind and professional throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend him to family and friends and if I were to have another procedure I would return to him and the facility he works at.

I chose Dr. Ross for his bedside manner. I don't need a surgeon that is going to sugar coat an answer to any questions that I have, which I experienced in the doctor before consulting with Dr. Ross. Dr. Ross is very down to earth and tells it like it is. Despite the procedures that I wanted, Dr. Ross did not look at me as a dollar sign or just another client, he looked at me as a person and not only took my health and safety into consideration, but also himself, as my "mommy makeover" took 5.5 hours of surgery, he was not willing to put me at risk for another 2 hours for a facelift, despite that fact it was what I wanted and with that being said, not only did he get me as a client, but I have the utmost respect for him as a surgeon. Dr. Ross did an amazing job on me (breast augmentation and lift, full tummy tuck, liposuction of lateral breast and upper inner thighs) and the noticeable change was immediate and I still need to heal (some swelling still 8-days post surgery)! I cannot wait for the final result (fully healed)!!

I gave this rating because my overall experience was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They answered all my questions and were very patient. Dr. Ross was also very informative and listened to what I wanted my desired outcome to be. I chose Dr. Ross after viewing his website. I was looking for a surgeon who had a lot of experience and good reviews. He was everything I could have hoped for in a surgeon and more.

I found Dr. Ross after reading the reviews on Realself. I also reviewed Dr. Ross' rating amongst his peers which was very good. Both Dr. Ross' previous patients and his peers were right he is an awesome surgeon. My experience througout the entire process was awesome, everyone was so nice and helpful. I would recommend Dr. Ross to anyone and everyone. He is a MASTER in his field and he LOVES what he does and that combination only will produce successful results!!!!!! I could not thank Dr. Ross enough for my new and enhanced body. I hope my experience will help anyone out there considering breast implants (or any plastic surgery) but don't know of any doctors in the Chicago area, go see Dr. Ross, you were be pleased just like I am.

Absolutely no complaints!! :) Great experience from day 1. The consultation with Dr. Ross was great, he answers all and any questions- no matter how weird or random they are! I wanted this procedure since I was 17 years old and I'm so glad I decided to go with Dr. Ross because he is so helpful and there for you 24/7. When it comes to breast implants- Dr. Ross is an expert!

Best experience so happy!! Found Dr. Ross on realself. I found Dr. Ross on realself and checked out his credentials. He had tons of experience and a great reputation so I decided to make an appointment with him. As soon as I met him he made me feel relaxed. He knew exactly what I wanted before I really told him! He went through everything in great detail and was verry honest and open with me. Needles to say I booked with him a couple days later! It was by far one of the best decisions I've made! My experience througout the whole thing was great, everyone was so nice and helpful. I would recommend Dr. Ross to anyone. He really does have a gift for what he does! I could never thank him enough for what he did!!!!!!!!!!

I chose to meet him based on reviews & photos. After a few conversations I was confident he was the best doctor I had met. Some of the staff is not super nice or friendly BUT I didn't let it affect my decision the DOCTOR he was important not the staff. Dr. Ross is an amazing person. If you are looking for a personal feel, all your questions answered, confidence in the person doing a surgery like this....HE IS THE ONE!! I wasn't a 100% when I first went for my consult. I also wanted to make sure I found the right doctor. ALL in all I would do it all over again with Dr.Ross!!! I would recommend to everyone!!!

Customer service was excellent. I had no bad experience with Dr Ross or his staff. Everything went as planned. I have nothing to complain about. My experience was awesome! Dr Ross did not promise me anything he could not do.The staff was excellent with handling my FMLA papers (which were a nightmare due to my job needing so much detail). I most definitely have no regrets. Thanks to my new confidence! Dr. Ross you and your staff went above and beyond for me. Thanks for giving me my real self back. :-)

Dr. Ross did a great job making sure my implants looked natural. He uses the right size in proportion to your body type. If you are afraid of getting implants because you do not want to look fake, then you should check out Dr Ross. I don't think people can even tell that I have implants because the result is so natural looking.

Helpful and kind staff. The Doctor always truthful and explained everything clearly about after surgery and what to expect. Very Pleased with Dr. Ross!
Posted by aimee4001
Everything was just perfect. The waiting time, the questions asked and the cost was well worth it. I felt comfortable with a Doctor who tells it like it is . I like the fact that when I asked him about some other procedure's I would like done, he advised me with a truthful yes or no. I respect that. The staff was helpful and very kind. The doctor explained everything before hand and was truthful on what he thought would be the right way to go about having the procedure. I am very pleased and I plan to return to the same doctor because I am satisfied.

Dr.Ross did an amazing job. I choose him because of the years of his experience and the reviews he's gotten. My experience with dr. Ross was great. His whole staff made me feel very comfortable before, during and after my surgery. I am very pleased with my results, they are natural and subtle, which was what I was hoping to achieve. Overall I had an amazing experience and I am very pleased with my results.My new nose, has helped me gain a lot of self-confidence and I just love it!

Dr. Ross and his staff were professional and answered all my questions. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Ross. I had Abdominalplasty (Tummy Tuck) 4 weeks ago and My results exceeded my expectations. Dr.Ross and his staff were so friendly and made me feel that no question was too dumb to ask( I had some dumb ones. Lol). He kept it 100% real with me and made me feel like I was his only patient. His staff Carol, Laura, Maria, Tony and so many others were so kind. I most definitely have no regrets and I would definitely recommend. Thanks Dr. Ross for giving me my confidence back.

The doctor is very personable detailed orientated caring and informative... He came highly recommended through a friend who had many consultation with other surrounding plastic Surgeon and felt she was in good hands with him... I trusted her and him and I got great results! The staff to the doctor made me comfortable from the moment I walked in. The doctor and his staff was available and accomadating to my needs and questions. He knew and suggested what size to go for a natural look. Explained the pro n cons of both saline and silicone and how he would do the surgery. Surgery day came again the staff made me very comfortable, he spoke with me before I left and made sure I had my questions answered... I'm glad I was refered to Dr. Ross :)

The staff to the doctor even the office made me comfortable right when you walked in, the availability n professionalism of everyone. Staff was friendly, welcoming and informative from the front desk to the doctor himself, I went to 3 other consultations and when I met Dr. Ross he could look at me tell me how he was going to do the surgery and gave me advice as to how big I can go and still look natural. He gave me all the info or pros and cons of saline and silicone... He was very straight forward and took the time to answer all my questions I felt at ease n most comfortable with him doing my surgery... The staff was always available to answer my questions before and after surgery...

Dr Ross was great he explained everything clearly and was very honest on what the results I should expect. Best decision I ever made. And the results are truly amazing!

Hands down Dr. Ross is the Best Surgeon in Town! Before I decided to have Breast Reduction Surgery, I interviewed four Surgeons and researched many others because I was terrified. Dr. Ross came highly recommended and because I was so nervous about the procedure he met with me three times prior to my surgery. I chose Dr. Ross because he was very understanding and reassuring. And, his before and after pictures were the best I had seen out of all the other doctors I interviewed and researched. I'm so happy with my decision and Dr. Ross was there for me every step of the way.

I have had nothing but great experiences and above and beyond excellent results. From the day I had my initial consultation to my follow up appointments, Dr. Ross has been the ideal surgeon. He took his time talking with me and performing the operation. Dr. Ross tells you to expect pre surgery and post surgery. He is extremely personable. He is one of those doctors that tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. The anesthesiologist and nursing staff were all accomodating and pesonable as well. I will definately recommend Dr. Ross to others!

If you are considering a face lift: At the grand old age of 65 I have seen a lot of surgery. Whenever someone I know suddenely looks terrific but I don't know why (and have the courage to ask), the answer is usually 'Dr.Ross.' I also have three friends who have gone to him because of botched procedures ( I'm talking Paris, New York, here not Chgo) and he has worked his magic. I first went to Dr. Ross 2 decades ago. For an eye lift and then a breast augmentation. I have no scars and I am in perfect symmetry. Dr. Ross' nurse at the time of my breast surgery said 'He is an artist.' She was absolutely correct. Not only an artist but meticulous and passionate about his work. Most importantly, he is a master of his craft. Last week I had a face lift. Even with the swelling, I still look exactly like me. Just a few years younger and more refreshed. And once again, I will be the only person who will know why! I would not let any friend of mine consider plastic surgery without at least including David Ross in their consultations. I don't know how better to state the high regard and trust I have for him. On a last note, as delightful a man as you will find Dr. Ross, his staff are also happy and lovely people which I think makes a statement unto itself.
