5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

New Boobies in November! Sarasota, FL

Dr. Schmidt is phenomenal. So professional with great bedside manner. He answered all of my questions before I even asked them in the consultation. He has always been on time with appointments, and the staff that work with him in the facility are fantastic. Always smiling, asking how to help, and very knowledgeable. Surgery day was a breeze. OR nurses were so sweet and friendly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Schmidt called me personally the night of surgery to see how I was doing. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my choice to get my breast augmentation done by Dr. Schmidt. 10/10, would highly recommend!

Awsome Doctor - Sarasota, FL

He is so nice. The consultation was unrushed and he explained everything completely. He took a lot of time helping we choose the right implant size. I have very tiny scars and am thrilled with my result.
