Dr Spies actually CARES. He doesn't sugar coat his answers, and he is completely honest and up front about what to expect, from risk to reward.

5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants

Deflated Post Nursing Sad Little Boobies Be Gone! Paradise Valley, AZ

Honestly, Dr. Spies is amazing. He truly listened to what I was looking for. I was so nervous about the result being too large for my active lifestyle and Dr. Spies took the time to understand me and my life and together we talked about what would be the most ideal size implant for me. We also talked a lot about implants themselves and the varying qualities and pro and cons of each. Dr Spies wants each patient to be satisfied and uses the best implants, Sientra, to get them that result.

Dr. Spies answered all my questions and spent ample amount of time with me. There was hardly any wait time and his office staff were very professional and polite. I would highly recommend Dr. Spies.

Breast Lift and Implant Replacement ( Reduction ) Scottsdale, AZ

Professional and easy to work with. Dr Spies spent time helping me review my options and select the most appropriate procedures for my concerns. A wonderful surgeon and practitioner. My scars are barely visible, and my implants are a better fit for my body type. I'm so very happy to have worked with Dr Spies, and would most definitely use him again in the future.

New Boobs for my Wedding! Scottsdale, AZ

I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor than I did with Dr. Spies. From my first appointment to my final check up I felt like I was his only patient and that I was important. He understood my wants, my needs, and my fears about the whole process. I feel so lucky to have had him as my doc!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Breaking News! 61 Year Old Woman Looks Great in Bikini Underwear - Scottsdale, AZ

Reading Dr. Spies reviews I found these words used to describe him: patient kind informative caring compassionate honest professional I would agree with those descriptions 100%. I am 61 years old and had liposuction. The results were nothing short of a miracle. Not only was the belly and hip fat gone, but by taking a skin flap, my belly is flat! Bikini underwear at 61. Wow. Finally, you may wonder how I found Dr. Spies. My husband is a surgeon who has actually operated with Dr. Spies on several occasions. He assured me that he is a talented and highly skilled surgeon. You can't get any better recommendation than that!
