Consultation review: The doctor was absolutely competent, and also kind and caring to my emotional situation

It was a phone consultation done from abroad. The doctor was extremely kind to schedule the consultation almost immediately in light of my needs, and also very professional in explaining surgery options.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Personalized and Extraordinarily Skilled Surgeon

I have NEVER had or worked with (in health care myself) a doctor that is more real, heart committed, kind, and willing to go above and beyond in her communication and appreciation of where the patient is coming from both medically and emotionally.

5 out of 5 stars Perlane

A master of "just enough"

Dr Lo Tempio is a master of “just enough.” She excels at making you look like a well-rested, healthy, “you.” She is skillful and quick, yet takes the time to understand what her patients are trying to accomplish. While she can create dramatic results, she would never steer a client to a radical transformation. Instead, she highlights one’s best features and helps roll back time. I highly re...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Caring and Skilled Plastic Surgeon

I visited Dr LoTempio for a rhinoplasty procedure consultation and she went above and beyond to answer all of my questions with attentive details. She didn't rush through our session like a lot of other PSs I spoke with, and made me feel at ease about proceeding with her once timing aligns for me to get the surgery done.

My first consultation was with Dr. Molly Collins at the Union Health Center. I explained my condition and she noticed the difference in my breasts. Dr. Collins referred me to a colleague in the clinic, surgeon Dr. Castellano. His secretary referred me to...

All procedures I've had done by Dr. LoTempio -dysport, restylane, and perlane, have been outstanding. Never overdone and ALWAYS looks natural. It's all about aging gracefully, and in the application which she excels in. I can always trust her honesty in what needs or does not need to be done to look my best.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Medical Magic - New York

I came to Lennox Hill emergency with a terrible wound on my forehead that would have left an obvious scar and Dr. Lotempio appeared at my bedside and made it all disappear. Her care and concern were reassuring and I knew I had nothing to worry about. She quickly sized up my financial status and made sure the procedure was within my means, just like a great surgeon I had in 1970 for a hernia...
