I'm one week post surgery and my experience with Dr. Ronan and BPS has been exceptional. The entire staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Blackhawk Plastic Surgery Does It All! - Blackhawk, CA

When you make a decision to enhance or improve a part of your body, it is not one that you do hastily. After a lot of research and interviewing, I am so glad that I had chosen Dr. Ronan and his staff for my rhinoplasty and breast augmentation needs. He is ahead of others when it comes to the latest methods in plastic surgery and his depth of knowledge in a variety of areas is just what I was looking for. He had confidence when addressing my issues and explained the process in great detail. I couldn't be happier with the results! He always takes time to answer any questions I have and continues to on any follow up visits. I have already referred him to several people who also have had a positive experience and sing his praises. I know if I ever have any future needs, it won't even be a question on where I should go and who I should use. Thank you Blackhawk Plastic Surgery and Dr. Ronan for sharing your skills and expertise in this area! Love the confidence, experience, and knowledge of Dr. Ronan who is staying on top of the field and doing the practices that deliver excellent results with less scarring. He was easy to talk to, listened to my concerns or questions, and delivered the service I was hoping to find in a Surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

60 Year Old-mini Face Lift, Fat Transfer to Breast, Pearl Fusion Laser. - Danville, CA

Dr. Ronan is a great doctor. I would say his bedside manner could be more open, but that doesn’t always go with being a perfectionist, so if there’s a trade off, I’d take the latter. I would love it if he offered up more info, as I am a sponge, gathering anything I can to make sure it feels safe and the time constraints worked with my busy schedule. But anyone one of his staff has bend over backwards to make sure I was feeling secure about the surgery, so he has himself covered well.
