5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Always puts a smile on my face

I absolutely adore Sara. She's so kind and great at listening, never pushy. I had excruciating pain every time I wore my prosthetic eye and eventually spent a few years without being able to wear it at all. I saw several doctors and no one had answers for me. My mom found someone up north and begged for help, that doctor referred us to Sara. She immediately knew my problem and set me up for...

Amazing visit

The team at Dr. Kaltreider's office are wonderful, they treat you like family from the moment you arrive. Lois and Cindy are a great asset to the practice and they are all about the comfort of their patients, they worked with my schedule to assure I was seen as I have a crazy schedule.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Retraction Repair

Wonderful experience!!!!

Dr. Kaltreider was amazing and so was her staff. Very personable, professional and knowledgeable about her work. My surgery was quick and painless. I would recommend to anyone with any eye repair needs.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

I made the right decision.

Dr. Kaltreider listens well, and has a strong and gentle approach. During the first part of my surgery, I heard her speak with her assistant in a collaborative manner that felt like I was part of an excellent and experienced choreograph - I soon fell asleep. Now when I check the mirror, I find it quite lovely to see results even better than I imagined.

Dr. Kaltereider is the bomb!

Awesome. She is a true artist and does great work that looks very natural. Very friendly office and staff along with Dr. Kaltreider. Also, she has a gentle touch which helps during some of the procedures.

5 out of 5 stars Eyebrow Transplant

Should have done this a long time ago!

I recently had my eyebrows filled in and am very pleased with the results. Also, the whole process from beginning to end was pleasant and I felt completely infomed about the procedure. Would highly recommend.

Experience was great.....had no worries

What I was told about procedure was exactly what happened. She was there afterwards to answer my questions and called when I got home to check on things. Had eyelid repair on both eyes. Thank you Dr. K.

I had a fabulous experience and very fast healing - Charlottesville, VI

Fabulous experience and very professional staff. Always easy to talk to the Dr and her staff . Dr Kaltreider is not only a very gifted doctor she is very honest about the procedures and only will do what she feels is in the best interest of her patient . I would recommend Dr Kaltreider highly .

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

Awesome Scar Revison!! - Charlottesville, VA

The Experience was Great. I commuted by train from NY to Charlottesville, VA where Dr. K and her husband picked me up and drove me to my hotel. The next day at her office, she took a better look at me and explained everything clearly. No smoke and mirrors she was clear about everything and not just what I'd like to hear. #honesty Her team was great!! Very nice and welcoming and after the procedure i was given ointment and additional items that i would need including a drive back to the hotel at no extra cost. What impressed me the most was that Dr.Kaltreider was able to give me the results that other "Surgeons" said i couldn't get based on "location of scar, and pigmentation of skin and this and that and.... blah... blah..blah" The revision was a success, the scars are less visible than they were before and that's what i really wanted. Thank you Dr.K

What you should know about blepharoplasty...

Eyelid anatomy is beautiful and incredibly intricate Procedures to enhance or restore eyelid anatomy have improved over time from a pinch-and-remove-skin technique to more delicate dissection and precision in restoring the normal anatomic relationships and contours. The term blepharoplasty is derived from Greek and means "restore form" (normal anatomy) to the eyelid. Repairs to achieve normal anatomy require attention to the lid crease, lid margin contour, eyelash position, and...
