You're Considering Plastic Surgery Look No Further... This is the Only Place to Go!! - Santa Rosa, CA

He really cares about each and every patient. I've also had Botox and fillers @ his office for the past 6 years and I'm nothing but happy. I've never had a bad experience there. On a side note, I really thought I wanted a nose job and kept trying to talk Paco into it. Instead of just doing it and taking the money, he has ethics and told me I didn't need it and wouldnt do it. I have the upmost respect for him. Especially after that. If you are considering breast augmentation he is know as the "boob dr", the only one to go to. PSA is always on the cutting edge and performing the latest procedures. Like I said, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

60 Years Old and Loving my New Self. Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Canales is by far the most outstanding doctor I have had the privilege of knowing. To say that I was extremely satisfied does not even come close to how I feel! He is an amazing doctor, an artist, has great bedside manor and is a genius in his field! I highly recommend him!

30 Year Old Married Professional with Too Many Padded Bras - Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Canales gave me the breasts I was born to have. He and his wife, Dr. Furnas, came highly recommended. I arrived at my free consultation with a list of questions. I needed facts - statistics, likelihood of outcomes, and "what ifs" answered. Dr. Canales answered every question with precise information and no bullshit. He has wonderful energy and is caring, kind, calm, and capable...and he has a sense of humor! He and every staff member treat me with kindness and compassion and take their responsibilities seriously, from consultation through all post-op appointments.

Doc. C and His Team Are Excellent - Santa Rosa, CA

Doc. C is extremely knowledgeable, caring and friendly. He listens to all your needs and concerns and makes you feel very comfortable. Before finding Doc. C I had been to other surgeons. I can say with having experience, Doc. C has the most, friendly staff and makes you feel very safe. And that’s on top of the amazing outcome you receive. I have found the best with Doc. C and his team and I will never go anywhere else!

30 Years Old, 2 Kids. - Santa Rosa, CA

Very professional. Listened and answered all my questions. Gave me many pictures and examples of what I could expect. All his years of experience show through his stories, research and vocabulary.

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

Life Changing Experience! - Santa Rosa, CA

Dr C was very frank with his advice right from the start. And his advice paid off!! The results speak for themselves, I am a changed person thanks to Dr C. He not only enhanced my life, he more than likely prolonged it with his advice and the procedure that followed a year later!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Nervous Yet TRUSTED! - Santa Rosa, CA

This truly was the best experience I have ever had! To make such a life changing decision you really have to TRUST your surgeon and his/her staff. Right when you walk through the doors and see all the smiles you will cancel all consultants you have with the other offices. This office was very professional yet had that warming not so sterile ( and I mean the staff not the actually facility) feel. I have recommended friends and family and will continue to because we all want to feel the TRUST in our surgeons and I fully TRUST Dr. C and staff.
