Amazing experience

My experience with doctor McCafferty was the best. My decision to get my nose done by him was the best decision I've ever made. It's perfect and exactly what I was hoping for. The sweetest man and makes sure his patients are 100% satisfied with their procedure. I'm so happy I chose Dr McCafferty

I had a great overall experience. It was much easier than I expected from a pain, convenience, and recovery standpoint. Highly recommend. I had the NeoGraft hair procedure, and as a young man I was able to return to work a few days later without anyone even noticing .

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best doctor I've ever had!

I was recommended to go to Dr. McCafferty for breast augmentation. Not only did I have an excellent, positive experience, I actually call his office for recommendations for other doctors or health questions! Bed side manners were excellent and he really made me feel relaxed and that I could trust him. Couldn't be happier with my results and healing process. One of the best decisions in my life...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

A positive experience with terrific results.

For five years I have considered liposuction but never felt comfortable with the other doctors or practices that I consulted with. Dr. McCafferty's name kept coming up and when I finally made the appointment for my consultation I knew I had found the right person for the procedure. Cannot say enough for the professionalism of his staff and the nurses. When necessary they were comforting and...

Wonderful experience & money well spent!

I highly recommend Dr. Mccafferty and his staff to anyone looking for his type of expertise! As soon as you walk in the office you met with unsurpassed kindness and professionalism. The appointments are always on time, with time taken to explain the procedure and what can or cannot be done!

Thin Hair No More! - Confidence Builder! - Pittsburgh, PA

I've always had very thin, fine hair and thought I had to live with it. Not anymore!!!! I had the Neograft procedure done and am so happy with the result already!!! The hair on top of my head would separate and go flat in no time, now it holds much better and now you cannot see through to my scalp! The best part, nobody knew I had it done. There was literally no down time and since there is...
