5 out of 5 stars Botox

Best Botox ever!

My visit with Dr Maack was great. I didn't have to wait to get an appointment or to get in when I arrived. He & his staff were very attentive & went over everything that we were going to be doing. I never felt the needle, he's so gentle. I would never go anywhere else for my Botox except maybe Synergi MedSpa!

A very confident physician.

I've been coming to Dr. Maack and his Synergi Medspa for years. He is a very caring and highly skilled physician with a great team of talented people working with him. What I like best is that he owns his medical spa and is physically present. It gives me comfort and confidence knowing that he is there if needed. I would not trust my face to anyone else.

An Incredible Experience!

I recently had a couple procedures done with Dr. Maack and it was an extremely great experience on both occasions. Both he and his staff were very informative along every step of the way and always available to answer any questions I had. He made a point to set clear expectations and actually listen to what I was hoping to achieve. The results were fantastic and I would recommend him to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars Ear Lobe Surgery

Great experience with Dr. Maack and staff.

I had torn earlobes and waited forever to get them fixed because I was scared that it would hurt. When I finally got the nerve to get it done I was mad at myself for waiting for so long. The whole process was so easy from start to finish. Dr. Maack was great and very patient with me and told me exactly what he was going to do and what it would feel like. The pain was very minimal and I went...

He is a patient, kind doctor and I would highly recommend him. The entire...

They Lie About Costs

I called to schedule a consultation with Dr. Maack for rhinoplasty. I inquired multiple times about the cost of the appointment and was assured each time that it would cost me $60. Several months later I received a bill for $193! I would never have scheduled an appointment of I knew the consultation alone would cost me over $200! When I called the office, both women I spoke with were extremely...

I was motviated to breathe better and look better; my nose was broken in high school athletics and as I became older, it seemed even more crooked and bigger! I was referred to Dr. Mack by someone close to me and I saw her wonderful results of upper eyelid sugery performed by Dr. Mack. My results of a rhinoplasy and correction of a deviated septum are amazing; I breathe better and my nose is...

Surgery to Repair a Nose Fractured 8 Times. - Chesterfield, MO

So pleased with the results of my nose surgery. I had a deviated septum and my nose was very crooked from fractures. I couldn't breathe through my nose at all. He repaired the deviated septum and straightened my nose. I can now breathe through my nose again and it looks great. It was painful, but it was so worth it.

58 Years Old Married with 2 Lovley Girls - Chesterfield. MO

I am a very positive, joyful, spiritual, woman who began to feel like my face did not reflect my heart. I am quite thin and love being outdoors. The sun had taken its toll on me! Without a full face everything began to go south and my neck looked like a chicken neck. I had the full support of my loving husband to have the surgery. Dr Maack did a fabulous job and I have absolutely no regrets! I...

No More Dark Circles! - Upper and Lower Lids - Chesterfield, MO

I've had fat pockets underneath my eyes for years that created a dark shadow and made me look very tired. Additionally, my upper lids began to sit on the top of my lash line. After years of looking at myself in pictures and in the mirror with dissatisfaction, I finally decided to have the surgery needed to correct the issue. I could not be happier!!! It has made a world of difference in my...
