5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift. Marietta, GA

I had been thinking about a facelift for some time. After seeing lots of advertising on TV I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Whitacker. After meeting with her and her staff I went thru with the procedure and can truly say I did not regret it at all. The result was amazing, downtime a little longer then anticipated but I did manage to go to Vegas two weeks afterwards. I recommended the...

Finally Did Something Just for Me! - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Whitaker really took her time to ensure that I was comfortable with every new injection. I had never had any type of fillers or cosmetic procedures done before, so I was apprehensive going into this experience. After she was finished, I could tell an immediate difference in my face and the results only got better with each day! She is nothing short of amazing, and I would tell anyone who asked that she is the only doctor I would trust with my face. As an RN, I have had the opportunity to meet with many different doctors, and have come to learn the difference between the good ones and the best...Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker is nothing but the absolute best in her field!

63 Years Old, Married, 2 Children, Three Grandchildren, Retired Attorney. Atlanta, GA

Dr. Whitaker was extremely professional and described exactly what I was to expect during the ultherapy process. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the offices and the procedure room, and the thoroughness and meticulousness of Dr. Whitaker and her staff. They were all extremely methodical and thorough, and explained every step to me during the procedure. They also were careful to apply ample lotions and other ointments following the process so there would be no discomfort. Dr. Whitaker was exceptionally kind and thoughtful and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Whitaker.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

44 Year Old in Need of Chin Lipo and a Chin Implant - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Whitaker is so caring, compassionate, easy to talk to, patient, makes sure that you understand everything and her bedside manner is absolutely AMAZING! I LOVE this doctor, and have never seen such a caring doctor. She never rushes you to get to her next patient. The office setting is extremely relaxing, and her entire staff are a great asset to her establishment. Tony, Candice and Cindy are some of the most awesome people that I've met while in Atlanta. They go out of their way to make sure that you are satisfied. I MUST SAY THAT I AM VERY SATISFIED!!! Dr. Whitaker arranged and paid for me to spend the night in an upscale hotel that offered shuttle service to and from her location. I didn't have to worry about arranging a ride to transport me to and from Atlanta Face & Body Center on the day of my procedure. Thank you Dr. Whitaker and staff for making me have a wonderful experience... When I'm back in Georgia I will definitely get another procedure with Dr. Whitaker.
