5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Patient and Professional Dr. and Staff - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. G and his staff made my surgery experience a wonderful one! I had been considering breast augmentation for years but really wanted a natural looking implant. He and the nurses were so patient and attentive to my needs and concerns. They even allowed me to come in and re-size a few times before my surgery date to be certain I would get the result I wanted. The surgery was quick and easy, I was back to a modified work schedule at 5 days! Their professionalism and caring bedside manner is outstanding and I would highly recommend Dr. G.

No Regrets - Minneapolis, MN

He has wonderful credentials. He gave me results straight off the table that I have never seen from all the pics I looked at and you tube videos I watched. I braced myself to see something horrific but nope! no swelling no bruising no bleeding just clean moisturized breast!

Great, Supportive Doctor, Staff, & Facilities! Amazing Results! - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. G. & his staff were amazing from the beginning! His nurse was so informative & supportive throughout the consultation. Dr. G. Was thorough with all aspects of the procedure & very supportive as well. I never felt pressured in the consultation & loved their enthusiasm for this big step for me (even though they see it every day). They love what they do! I'm so happy I chose Dr. G. and his team. It was a positive experience with amazing results! --Also I have called with questions post surgery & I am always put through to nurse immediately. They care about their patients!

I Would Recommend Him to Those Thinking About Having This Procedure Done - Minneapolis, MN

The staff as well as Dr. made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, this made it easier to ask all the questions I wanted answered along with those that I did not think about myself but they brought up. They take the time to discuss options and make sure you have chosen the right thing for you. The staff is very prompt at getting back to you if you leave messages or have anyu questions before or after your procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Wow Was It Ever Worth It! - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. was very helpful, informative, and understanding when I was deciding whether to get implants or not. During my surgery and post-care, he has been very professional and has always listened to my concerns. I think the hardest part for me was getting past the stigma of plastic surgery--he was helpful by providing facts.
