5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Mom Tired of Looking Like a Mom. Santa Fe, NM

After my 3rd child was a year old I didn’t want to be self conscious about my body anymore. I went to visit Dr. Green after my friend recommended him (she had a breast implant redo a few years ago and praises his work) Everyone was so nice and I didn’t feel self conscious. It is a long scar but I feel 15 years younger and happier! I am excited to wear a swimming suit for the first time in years.

(2 mo. Post Op Update) Bye Bye Big Boobies! Hello Perky Cute Breasts!

I have had large breasts since I entered puberty. I had my first child as a teen and two other children since, my baby is now 16; I am 42.

I have thought for many years to have a breast reduction, I spoke with my doctor about 10 years ago and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

33 Years Old....2 Kids....need I Say More - Santa Fe, NM

I wouldn't change a thing about my experience! Dr.Green answered any questions I had before I had to ask them. Dr.Green gave me realistic expectations, was very engaging with myself and my husband. His staff was hands down some of the nicest people I have ever worked with. I was REALLY scared to be put under (first timer) I was put right at ease the minute I walked through the surgery room...

dr green saved my face and perhaps my life - Santa Fe, NM

I consider Dr Green an Angel sent to me in a dire time of need, and he definitely saved my face and perhaps my life, I was diagnosed with a melanoma on my right cheek, was told I had to get it removed immediately . Of all the surgeons I contacted, in a panic, Green was the only one willing to help me. I had the surgery in a week for reaching out to him. The melanoma required a wide excision...

Consultation review: Turned Away - Santa Fe, NM

Never in my life have I ever been turned away for a procedure :( I wish Dr. Greene would take into account that every patient is a different case. He did not have much of an idea now was very educated of what my deficiency was and turned me away. Before turning me away, he should have done research.

5 out of 5 stars Botox for Migraines

Need Help for Migraines!

Dr. Green has an Amazing staff and he's an amazing doctor. He always provides professional advice and care. I was getting migraines for such a long time and Dr. Green was recommend to receive Botox for my migraines. I am afraid of needles, but Dr. Green made me feel at ease and before I knew it, he had already finished the work with no pain. He's awesome!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The absolute best!

Dr. Green is honest, doesn't hold back and is very kind. My breast augmentation consultation, surgery and post op experiences were fantastic. He answered all my questions thoroughly. His staff were all incredibly kind and fun! I'm really happy with my results!

40 Years Old, 5 Children and Nervous!

In 9 hours, I will be fulfilling a 20 year dream! However, I'm starting to get cold feet. I'm afraid my implants will be too large on not big enough. Will the pain and recovery be worse than the 3 c-sections I've had. It's the unknown that's freaking me out. I'll share my recovery process and pictures, in hopes to help someone like myself who is excited and scared. My experience was great...
