5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing Amazing.. AMAZING. He's Not Just the Best Doctor, He's Genuinely a Great Man Too. - Pasadena, CA

DR G IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST. Visit him once and you will know. Before seeing Dr. G, I actually visited 5 other breast augmentation specialist during a 6month search. Some doctors I visited included the most "popular" ones to the cheaper ones seen all over ads & radio & newspapers. The highly recommended one were cavalier with my time, and was in a rush when they saw me a hour late.. etc. One doctor actually charged me $100 for a consult fee when they NEVER told me about it on the phone when I made the appointment. The cheaper ones made me feel like I was next in line at mcdonalds and I got harassing calls so the rep can make her sales. Awful! Finally, I walked into Dr. G's office and his staff & him almost shocked me. It was like walking into heaven. I thought, this is true customer service. Dr. G was so present with me.. authentic, calm, and willing and wanting to help me. I knew INSTANTLY he was my doctor. I had a few questions afterwards and Janel answered all of my questions.

5 out of 5 stars Forehead Lift

Dr. John Gross is the Only Plastic Surgeon I Will Use - Los Angeles, CA

I do not recall the cost of surgery. I chose Dr. John Gross because of his professional background. He was teaching at USC at the time. Dr. Gross not only worked on beautiful women but he also provided surgery to the patients at LA County Hospital. Thus, my mind was made up that he would be capable of providing stellar work. My forehead lift has held up where my other friends (who got inspired by my surgery) are very disappointed because their eyelids are sagging once more. His professional demeanor is comforting.
