Exceptional Plastic Surgery - Carmel, IN

I cannot find anything but positive to say about this plastic surgery firm. I was so fortunate to find them and Dr. Eppley in particular. His care and attention to me (ongoing) is outstanding. His support staff likewise, from nurses to billing agents to scheduling personnel were extremely courteous, responsive promptly and always helpful no matter how many questions I had. They work with you. Dr. Eppley is a careful listener, has a very outgoing and warm personality and clearly takes an authentic honest interest in his clients. He was a pleasure to communicate with. He explains what he can do, identifies the procedures and clearly articulated the post-op instructions following upper/lower blepharoplasty which is what I had.
