I Love Dr. Magilke and His Staff. Both Dr. Magilke and His Asstant Karen Work So Well Together. I Highly Recommend Them! He is a registered plastic surgeon. I felt confortable with his consultation and explanation of the procedure. He is honest and down to earth. I recommend him to my friends. They did a great job explaining to me about the process. My motivation was / is to have a relaxed and youthful looking face. I feel that Dr. Magilke helped me to accomplish my goal. I look more relaxed not tired and more youthful! This treatment teaches me to keep my face relaxed. I love it! I will go back to him again. I shopped around for price and found his price was competive. I read about this treatment before hand. I was nervous about having it done. After talking to Dr. Magilke and his staff, I felt comfortable and knew I could trust them.

Dr. Magilke was on AM Northwest when I first saw him. He had a patient with him who discussed her experience with a facelift and she looked marvelous. I also saw a vignette on another local news station discussing facelifts. Once I decided I couldn't take looking at my "turkey neck" anymore, I started a quest to find the right plastic surgeon. I didn't know of any surgeons nor did friends I asked, but one day I saw Dr. David Magilke on a local TV program and he caught my attention. He projected a confidence and knowledge that intrigued me. I scheduled a consultation and from the moment I entered his offices until I left I knew I'd made the right decision. Dr. Magilke immediately put me at ease with his professional yet friendly manner. He wasn't aloof nor pushy, just informative and honest. Not once did he or a staff member try to talk me into having a facelift but instead let me know that they understood it was a big decision to make and gave me time to do so. The office staff members are delightful, friendly and welcoming. And Dr. Magilke is a breath of fresh air in that he is an extremely skilled, knowledgeable professional who is not arrogant, dismissive or full of himself. Instead he lets you know he cares that you receive the results you seek. His demeanor is kind and understanding so that you know you are in good hands. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for me. I only wish I could give him 10 stars instead of 5!

The rating reflects my experience in all areas of service. I couldn't ask for more. I attended a seminar given by Dr. Magilke and then was referred by a friend. Dr. Magilke is informative, very easy to speak with and provides straightforward and helpful advice. Finally, I've been so pleased with my experience I purchase all my facial products from his office and have rec'd IPL treatments from his talented staff. It's wonderful

Simply because Dr. Magilke provides exemplary skill and service. In completing surveys, I'm a critical consumer and attempt to provide honest feedback to the provider. When you entrust your "face", your outward appearance, to a surgeon, it's best to be armed with the best information from independent sources. I was referred to Dr. Magilke by a friend. I complimented them on their appearance and they shared their "secret" source with me. I mentioned that I had returned to Dr. Magilke. Ten years ago, while living in Portland, Mr. Magilke performed a mid-brow lift. I was nervous about the procedure but the outcome was fantastic. I decided to travel from Dallas to Portland to have my second procedure performed based on Dr. Magilke's expertise. I will return when I need maintenance treatment. Thank you, Dr. Magilke!

I had met Dr. Magilke several years ago, and felt very comfortable going to him. I made the right decision. I was very pleased with all aspects of the surgery and follow up care. I had Dr. Magilke do a pretty major face lift on me. He is awesome, as is his staff ... all very caring, communicative, and professional.

I had friends who had been to Dr. Magilke so he was recommended to me. Dr. Magilke has a wonderful eye and I have had several other procedures (botox and upper eyelid) done since as I had such marvelous results with the fillers. I am pleased with each and every procedure and visit to Dr. Magilke. Highly, highly recommend!

I was referred to Dr. Magilke by another doctor who was booked up -- and it turned out to be the best thing that could have happened. Dr. Magilke is warm, personable, listens during the appointments and really takes the time to understand his patients' needs. I was so nervous about this procedure but the doctor and his amazing staff put me completely at ease. I am super pleased, and I am thrilled with my doctor, who was kind, personable, and an amazing surgeon. Everyone I dealt with in his office was incredible. I am thrilled with the results, and I would recommend him to anyone. I am so thankful that I chose the right doctor!!!!

When I consulted Dr. Magilke about rhinoplasty, he was very attuned to what was important to me. Throughout the entire process, he maintained a sense of commitment, care, and thoughtfulness that is unique in his profession. I highly recommend Dr. Magilke. I consulted Dr. Magilke about rhinoplasty surgery. I was nervous about such a major surgery and Dr. Magilke was supportive and reassuring. I was given the information I needed to make a major decision in my life. I am very pleased with the outcome. Not only is Dr. Magilke a jewel of a person, he is a top-notch surgeon.

I was referred to Dr. Magilke by a close friend who also had a procedure done by Dr. Magilke. What a great experience! Dr. Magilke and his staff made me feel so comfortable with the procedure by explaining everything from a few days prior to the surgery,to the day of surgery to the recovery after surgery. They were always available to answer any questions I had which took the stress out of the procedure. Dr. Magilke has an amazing skill that made my procedure look so natural. Everyone that has seen me after the surgery says I look so healthy, someone said I looked radiant, and another asked what type of face cream I was using. It's so funny that no one had a clue I'd had some surgery. I can't recommend Dr. Magilke highly enough!

Believe it or not I found him on line. I called and visited a few Doctors and he stood out from the first visit. Dr Magilke first and foremost did an amazing job and created the look that I had hoped for. In addition, in preparing for the surgery he was very helpful and patient with my questions. He spent the time helping me feel confident about the look I was trying to achieve. Everyone at his office was pleasant, professional, and increadible helpful. From step one all the way through I felt taken care of. I have been so pleased with the results and the care I now go in for lazer treatments and botox. Dr Magilke is a amazing sugeon and this was one of the best things I have ever done for myself.

I have been to other facilities in both Washington (Seattle) and Oregon. The professionalism and quality work I have experienced by Dr. Magilke at Portland Laser and Surgery surpasses any and all of them! I live in Seattle and will travel to Portland JUST for Dr. Magilke and his staff. They are professional (there are no aesthiticians doing injections here as in other places -- only doctors). The restylane has given me a new lease on aging gracefully –Julie Hoodenpyl on Dr. Mgilke's team has ingrained in me the importance of sunscreen every day (I love Science Sunforgettable powdered sunscreen!), and taking care of my investment with quality skin care products (which you can't get at any upscale department store or salon., I am very happy with the results and Dr. Magilke's "bedside manner" gave me an incredible confidence in that he wanted the best for me as well.

He didn't give me any indication that the procedure would be completely temporary. He also encouraged me to have thermage, which I did, which was like throwing away $4,000. It didn't work at all.

Dr. Magilke is a physician and surgeon that is passionate and confident about his craft. Every time I’ve been in to see him for a treatment, I leave consistently impressed with his knowledge, counsel on treatment options and procedural approach. The environment of his office and warmth and professionalism of his staff make every visit a confirmation that his practice is the right choice. As I contemplate a potential face-lift, he would be my only choice.
