5 out of 5 stars Laser Surgery

The Perfect Surgeon for me.

I couldn't be happier with the 2 laser treatments that Dr. Core has done on my face . At my consultation I asked him what he recommends to make my face look younger and he said 3 laser treatments, a lower face lift and a brow lift. He explained why and I accepted his professional opinion. He is a wonderful person and I can tell he really cares about his patients and the results. I trust him...

Very good discussion of what it can and can't do and about the procedure itself.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Wonderful surgeon, LBL and Breast Lift

Sept. 2016....Dr. Core is great. I did a consultation with him, after I lost 110 pounds to remove excess skin from abdomen area. After an hour, decided on Lower Body Lift. Prepared me well. He told me up front it was the hardest recovery of all the surgeries he performs, from 1 to 10....a 10. He was right. I'm 11 months post op. Very happy and glad I did it. I'm from Huntsville. He was about...

Dr Core tackled a huge job.....he was amazing...size 22 because of size 8 120 days later. I had some complications, but well worth it.

Dr Core changed my life, would highly recommend him and his awsome staff...just got a little miffed when he said I could go to Disney...11 days after surgery....

40 with 4 Kids - Birmingham, AL

I felt the dr was not a good communicator and he made me feel very low about myself. His staff was nice.

55 and Alive - Birmingham, AL

Extended TT, muscle repair, ultra body lift, panniculectomy, rhynoplasty, septoplasty. Have had my labs and EKG, just waiting for the clearance from doctor. I was scheduled to have this done in two parts, but now all proceedures will be done on the same day. I am both excited as well as scared. I am looking forward to the flat side. I had a botched c_section at 19 and have a verticle 9 inch...

38 Year-Old, Much Needed - Birmingham, AL

So far I have been emailing back and forth with the staff. I am still deciding. Going to schedule an evaluation, just need to make sure my insurance will cover it. The staff seems very nice and have answered all my questions. My cousin recommended this surgeon, he done her panni.

5 out of 5 stars BroadBand Light (BBL)

29 Year Old, Major Hyper Pigmentation from Sun Damage and Acne Scarring - Birmingham, AL

I had a BBL (Broadband light) treatment at Dr. Core's office today. The procedure was absolutely seamless. Staff was extremely professional, friendly, and helped me set very clear goals for outcomes. Excited to see the results. This procedure has no downtime and can have amazing results. Pictures to come.

29 Year Old Female, in Need of Revision Rhinoplasty - Birmingham, AL

Going in for a revision rhinoplasty on August 13th, 2014. So far my experience with Dr. Core and his staff has been absolutely pleasant from the initial consultation to the second visit, where we addressed last some minute concerns. He spent as much time explaining the procedure and the possible outcome as necessary. He even has a great sense of humor, something most doctors lack. So far I...
