5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Melanie Petro is a highly skilled surgeon who has been blessed with the hands of an artist and a heart of compassion. Her friendly demeanor and beautiful facility create an atmosphere unlike any physician's office I have ever visited. The aptly named day spa, Tivoli inspires the patients to relax and consider the time spent there a mini vacation. Dr. Petro has performed several procedures for me and I have always been very pleased. I have recommended her to several family members and friends who have also been pleased with their results.
5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser
She caring and efficient. Nice to have that in a doctor. She does the right thing for you as a patient, not the same thing for every patient.
5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture
For the first time in 5 years since my abdominal surgery for cancer and the creation of scar tissue and a lump belly that would not go away with any amount of exercise. Dr. Petro was the first Physician that performed lipo and removal of scar tissue and today I am wearing a bathing suit and not worried how my stomach looks because it looks amazing! I am so thankful to Dr. Petro for bringing back my body due to surgery over 5 years ago. My stomach is flat! I have always been small but after the abdominal surgery I was unable to loose the rolls --but Dr. Petro was a perfectionist making sure she removed the scar tissue by lipo to smooth out my stomach. Thank You Dr. Petro. I owe you forever!
5 out of 5 stars Voluma

5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Petro took her time to make sure she understood what was bothering me. Gave me a game plan and I've seen nothing but results everyday :)
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Petro was very nice and knowledgeable about the treatments she provides. I like the fact that she is a woman and knows how a woman's idiosyncrasies can be about herself. I would refer anyone to anyone. She offered me many options for treatment and made me feel very comfortable being a patient and in her hands as a doctor.
5 out of 5 stars Vein Treatment
She is great, has the best bed side manner. She will talk to you as long as she needs to and makes you feel good about your self and her staff cares about the people they see every day. I would send every one I know to her.
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Petro was able to that for me. She is the most compassionate yet honest doctor I have ever been to. I went into her office for Botox and received the best possible treatment. Her injection technique is essentially pain free. Her office is beautiful and staff is very friendly. I left her office feeling like a brand new woman.
Dr. Petro is a great surgeon and has a fantastic repertoire with her patients. I highly recommend her.
I've had botox and juvederm from serveral different doctors and she is the best. She has so much experience, and an amazing sense of how to tranform your face injectibles. I will use her from now on even though I ahve to travel to see her. As they say, no one knows a woman like another woman...and it is so true.
I appreciate how the world views and pressures women to look good, young & rested all the while caring for children, older parents, and finding little time to take care of ourselves.
I love helping and watching as women find their way back to themselves.
