"I was unsure if I wanted implants, he told me I could have them if I wanted them, but I didn't need them, I'm glad I listened to his advice and I'm more than happy with my beautiful natural perky breasts!..." "He did a wonderful job answering all my questions and assured me that I would receive the results that I wanted."

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The Best Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles

Dr. Stoker is quite simply the best plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. He is a consummate professional, caring and committed to his patients' well being. His results are stunning yet natural. His staff and nurses are some of the kindest and caring medical professionals I have known. I have recommended family and friends to him without hesitation.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Extraordinary experience! Amazed!

Fantastic is understatement! From beginning to end - really wonderful front desk staff! I went in for a consultation as I wanted to volume up - I wanted to fill in my D cup bra (had to wear a C so I can get some volume showing). I'm 34, lost and gained wight (10lbs range) and now average 115lbs. Doctor Stoker was amazing! He is an artist and a very professional plastic surgeon. Understood...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Amazing Surgeon.

I just had breast reduction and a lift by Dr. Stoker. The results? I have the breasts of a 20 year old and I am 50! I have been wanting to reduce my breasts for 15 years. I had consultations with numerous top surgeons who are listed in this forum, and only Dr. Stoker understood what I was looking for and had the confidence and skill to achieve it. He was patient, kind, and his office staff is...

Dr. Stoker is the best of the best! After losing 240 pounds, plastic surgery was absolutely necessary for me to achieve optimal well-being. After extensive research, I know there was no one better than Dr. Stoker and his team. From the initial consult over Skype to years’ post-surgery, I couldn't be happier. Dr. Stoker is the very best plastic surgeon! Don’t just take my word for it; rea...

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

He's the BEST!

After I got my first procedure with Dr. Stoker, that was it. I'll never go to anyone else! I call him the "Miracle Worker". Starting with the consultation, he's honest, straightforward and professional with a wonderfully gracious personality. He goes out of his way to listen and give you the results you want. His office staff is friendly, detail-oriented and top notch too. I live out of town,...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

My Wonderful Experience

He is a handsome, devoted husband and family man; however, with that being said he is devoted to his patients as well. With an excellent surgical hand and an eye for perfection, he master's his gift and skills in perfecting his calling. Due to a partial facelift, I left his surgical table a changed woman. I looked two decades younger and I am mistaken for my daughters sister, rather than her...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

The Best Plastic Surgeon in Marina Del Rey

Extremely detail explanation. After researching his extensive experience and credentials, I decided to have my surgery with him and I am so grateful. The recovery was easier than I thought. I hardly had any bruising and went back to work a week later. I have referred all my friends and family to him as well.

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

Wedding in 6 Days!!! - Marina Del Rey, CA

Having had consultations with more than 7 Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons over the years, I have found Dr. Stoker and his staff to be par excellence.
