5 out of 5 stars Facelift

The Face Was Starting to Fall to the Knees! - Neptune Beach, FL

There isn't enough space here to tell you how wonderful Dr. Roberto Garcia is. He is absolutely one of the BEST surgeons out there. He only accepts perfection from himself. He is realistic and caring. He doesn't try to sell you a bunch of stuff you don't want. He and his staff really makes you feel comfortable being in his office and having procedures done. He has operated on me twice and if I ever want/need anything else done, he will be the ONLY person that I would trust to cut on me. This is my face, I would only allow the best of the best to operate on my face and he is the BEST.

"Face Matters Are Done with the Best!" - Neptune Beach, FL

Dr Robert Garcia, has all the qualifications and experience one should seek. He is #1 in my book as well as his associate Dr James Hardy. Clients of mine that I refereed to both and have had some type of procedure done have been just as pleased.

Pleased With The Result - Neptune Beach, FL

This is without a doubt the most professional and caring group of medical personnel including their awesome administrative staff. There are none that compare nor come close to this practice. Dr. Roberto Garcia has the greatest personality, displays genuine care and concern for all his patients and has the heart of a lion and the spirit of a warrior. I will always have him and the staff in my thoughts and prayers. I appreciate who they are to me and to others. SG

The Best Dr...Ever! - Neptune Beach, FL

Dr. Garcia, in my opinion is the very best Doctor in the world. He truly cares about you, and gives you advice on the perfect treatments for your skin type. I am absolutely thrilled with my results, and will continue seeing him forever. I feel like I look years younger and, the comments I get from people prove my point. He, and his professional staff, make you feel like family on each visit. It 's a wonderful, delightful experience each appointment. I recommend him to everyone I know. Plus, the fact that he is drop dead gorgeous, you know he is going to make you look great too! I cannot say enough about The Garcia Institute!

Great Doctor - Neptune Beach, FL

Dr. Garcia defies every stereotypical characteristic as the typical surgeon. I had my original procedure done by a different plastic surgeon then switched doctor because I did not feel comfortable. Dr. Garcia has a presence about himself that not just makes one feel comfortable, but peace at mind as well. Words can not explain the unmeasurable quality of service and the genuine care of the surgeon. I can't thank Dr. Garcia enough. Through the skills of his profession and his unique approach to reconstructive surgery and attention to every detail from procedure to care afterwards he instilled the confidence I had before the accident that nearly took my lip. I thank him from the bottom of my heart.

From a Pleased Patient - Neptune Beach, FL

I am so impressed. My overall concern was that I would look different then myself. Which I wanted to look better but still my son's mom, wife, co-worker. That no one would know. Like those scary movie stars that look like they lost their soul when you look at their eyes. It's been more than a month now. I have black and blue shadows under eye, my neck still feels tight, but make-up covers that...

Awesome Experience - Neptune Beach, FL

I had an appointment for surgery with another surgeon's office. I was not pleased with the way everything proceeded so, I cancelled. I immediately called up Dr. Garcia's office and got an appointment the next day. He had had a cancellation for surgery on the following Tues. I had my Contura Plus done and everything went well with no complications. The office personnel and surgery staff were...

A Super Experience - Neptune Beach, FL

I consulted with four other plastic surgeons before choosing Dr, Garcia. He was the only one that provided aftercare for the next 24 hours after surgery. After meeting Dr. Garcia and his staff I knew he was the doctor that I wanted to perform my surgery. Everyone has been so wonderful and made me feel so good about myself. After my surgery I am so very pleased with the results that I know I...
