    “DR. SUNDINE DID AN AMAZING JOB ON MY NOSE”

    • My experience with Dr. Sundine was AWESOME! He did such an amazing job on my nose. My nose had basically collapsed and Dr. Sundine made it look normal again. He helped me restore my self confidence. I am so happy with the results. Dr. Sundine explained everything in detail prior to surgery along with my follow up visits. I highly recommend him. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind.

    “GREAT PLASTIC SURGEON. I’M GLAD HE DID MY SURGERIES.”

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    “DR. SUNDINE IS AN OUTSTANDING DOCTOR”

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “I RECOMMEND HIM 100%”

    Dr. Sundine is a gifted, highly trained plastic surgeon who achieves amazing, natural looking, aesthetic results in facial and body plastic surgery. My facelift is 4 years old. Even people who don’t know me comment I look wonderful. Others often ask me about Dr. Sundine… …and of course I recommend him 100%. In addition to being highly skilled and knowledgeable Dr. Sundine is caring, compassionate, communicative and professional. Finally, his office staff is friendly and efficient. I have never waited more than 5 minutes..

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    “THE RESULTS NOTHING SHORT OF EXCEPTIONAL”

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
