I took Dr. Sarosy to Small Claims Court for $10,000.00. We have another court date on 3/19/15. I'm bringing in expert witness's. The judge was great! I also have a on going case with the Medical Board. This is what happened to me at this facility: 1. Dr. Powell was suppose to do lipo on several area's Dr. Sarosy helped him with my surgery without my consent I did not see Dr. Sarosy at all that day. This is SHADY! 2. My jewelry was not locked as promised. 3. It was very dark & small in the room 4. I had a young girl take my blood. Didn't know how to do it & was assisted my an older lady. It hurt really bad because she didn't know what she was doing. 5. I woke up in extreme pain. Another lady was moaning. Being in that much pain is unusual. It's cheaper to use less "/ 6. By the way Dr. Powell came in with street clothes to mark me he was late with white powder on his pants. 7. I could not walk correctly for 2 months. They took so much fat & scraped my skin so bad I still have bruises a year later. 8. They did Lipo on the wrong body parts. They did lipo on my hips without my consent. My right hip is bigger. I'm deformed now. 9. They also did lipo on the back of my knee. I use to think I had a tumor. It's gone now. They did not do lipo on my upper abs. they were suppose too. 10. They used a large canula to take the fat out so they can do it in a hurry. Good Doctors use a small one to do a good job. I went to Dr. Hansen the LIPO Doctor in Beverly Hills. he said "WoW" who did this to you? He said this Doctor didn't even put the incisions in the places where they train. He could not believe a licensed Doctor did this to me. I have lots of places where they went don to the bone. 11. Debbie told us that I could take off my compression garment in 5 days. So I did. My leg swelled up 5 times the norm. I called Dr. Powell he told me to go to imaging. I live in Nevada. This cost me $300. Dr.Powell office said Debbie should have said 5 weeks. 12. Debbie gives medical advise. She emails you, then will tell you she doesn't have a email. 13. When I called Dr. Powell about my body parts he said I was pretty & had a nice body. he said this 3 times. (Weird). I asked him if he was training someone on me because my leg's were so different. He said no. Then he said Dr. S. helped. I asked who is that? I could tell someone else helped. I looked so bad. 14. When I asked them for my medical records for the Medical Board It took them close to month to get them. Debbie said she had 90 days to get them to me. When I received my pictures. They had cropped them. There where fingers in the way etc.. 15. When I went in for my post appt. Dr. Powell said my roller coaster lumps on my leg would go away. When he went out Debbie said they would not go away. Dr. Powell said," I do see your right hip is larger, I can fix that for $1,200.00." I asked for a full refund because of the botched job. He said NO! 16. I did go to the Dr.'s on the show Botched in Beverly Hills. He said, WOW DID THIS TO YOU!!" 17. Every Doctor I went to said something similar. One Doctor told me I didn't do my homework. (He was right). 18. Dr. S. does GROUPON'S. This tells you he hasn't perfected his skill. Good Doctor's don't need Groupon or Deals. 19. In court the last time. Dr. Powell said he didn't do the wrong body part. Well I can't wait until the 19th. What a liar. They are so Shady. 20. Dr. S. Had my Yelp reviews removed. He has several names he uses. Most Doctors don't do this. Dr. S has lots of bad reviews. 21. They lied in court many times. 22. I've had 3 surgery's, I need 1 or 2 more. I have spend over $20,000 to fix my deformed body. THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE!! 23. Dr. S brought in all my bad reviews to court. That's all he had. I will do the same =) 24. When I asked Dr. Powell what happened to me he said," It's like a pregnant women wakes up & don't know who impregnated you." My friend & I could not believe he said that. 25. When a Doctor works on the wrong body parts & will not give you your money back that is terrible. Debbie told me he has no money. well...that's what insurance is for. They're losing money showing up to court (twice). 26. My compression garment was 6" to short. I had GROSS SWELLING On my legs. STAY AWAY FROM THESE DOCTOR'S THEY ARE BAD NEWS. A Dr. S. never reached out to me before I took him, to court. Dr. S. lied on his court paper work ans said he served me for slander. He didn't serve me. He lied again. Check out his Yelp reviews on the following: Image Centre Salon and Medical Spa, Dr. Charles Sarosy, East County Vein & Liposculpture Center and Charles J Sarosy, MD. What Doctor does this. He has so many bad reviews he has to keep up different names.

If you read any good reviews about Dr. Siddharth Bass, you can be almost sure it must have been written by himself or his staff at Professional Cosmetic Surgery. I failed to pay attention to the negative reviews I had read about him and decided to get my tummy tuck and liposuction procedure with him which was performed on May 6, 2014. Before I decided to go with him, his office manager, Maria, called me several times in order to convince me. Right then and there I should have known something was not right. She seemed to offer and promise the world on behalf of this so called wonderful Dr. Bass. She assured me that if something did not come out right with my tummy tuck, he would correct it with no problem. Well, my tummy tuck did not come out bad, it came out horrible. First of all, I almost died from the pains I was suffering from. From the very first day, I could tell something was not right. I kept going back to his office practically begging to be seen. My stomach, from the very first day, looked lop sided and bigger on the right side. The 2 or 3 times I went in and begged to see him he kept touching and jiggling my stomach, which is not supposed to be jiggling, and would say he did not know whether it was fat or whether I was retaining fluid. The 2 or 3 times he saw me because I was begging to see him which was the doctor and not a customer service rep from his office, he would very rudely and obnoxiously walk in, touch my stomach and say it was okay, and he would say he would see me the following week. He never said hello or had any helpful suggestions or seemed to care. I truly never got to see him and have a conversation about my concerns. Needless to say, the manager, Maria, which was so courteous and promising at my initial consultation, all of course in order to get my money, was no where to be found. Not surprisingly, his staff even declined to provide me with the massages you are supposed to receive after a tummy tuck. A girl by the name of Susie seemed to be helpful and caring, but in the end, was just as caniving as they all are at that office. I always expressed my concerns and asked for assistance. Finally, at one of our last meetings, he agreed that he needed to and would revise my incision in order to tighten it to make it more firm, and also that he would fix a huge dog ear on my right side. Since I was going to have to go under the knife again, I went to see another plastic surgeon for a second opinion. I advised his office about this. Well, when I went to meet with Dr. Bass once again, he was even more rude than ever. He flat out, with a big smile on his face, told me that he had decided not to operate on me anymore because I had violated the doctor and client trust we had. I could not believe what he was telling me. I asked him was he firm with his decision and with his evil smile said he would think about it and for me to come see him in a month, which was last week. I did go last week, literally begging to receive what I had paid for, and he involved everyone in his office. I could not belive how unprofessional of a doctor he was. Ever since, up until today that I decided I had to urgently advise the public of his and his staff's practices. I have gone to his office begging and crying on several occasions for them to please correct what he had been done incorrectly and what I had paid $3950 for. Today was my last phone call to Maria, the so called caring and wonderful office manager. All she told me was that Dr. Bass would not be performing any corrections because I would never be satisfied. When I went for a second opinion and from what I have heard from many others who have received a tummy tuck procedure, I went through way more pain than I should have. It is now 3 months post surgery and I am still in pain. My tummy tuck and liposuction was a dream that I have had for many years and was finally able to fulfill. I am going through so much depression and constantly crying because now I am going to have to wait until I can save a couple of thousands of dollars so that another doctor can fix the deformity this Dr. Bass caused to my body. I am warning the public to carefully read and listen to the negative reviews. Do not risk your life and body to this doctor. Just do your research as there are many other qualified and board certified doctors out there. If you wish to speak with me I can be reached at (786) 401-5323. Important to mention that I asked and begged for a refund of the money I paid them so that I can go get the procedure corrected by another doctor and they are in total denial. After your procedure, you are nothing but a stranger to them that they care to never hear from again.

It has been over 6 years, words cannot express how happy I am with the results of my breast augmentation, liposuction and eye lid surgery! The day of the consultation, my husband and I were so surprised how comfortable it was talking with Dr. Pousti about the procedures. He always answered all of my questions patiently and thoughtfully and put me completely at ease. At the end of the consultation we both knew immediately he was the right surgeon, and scheduled the surgery. I couldn't have found a better doctor and surgical assistants, all of them make me feel so comfortable at all times, and that made this experience and my results better than I could have ever imagined! My husband and I truly enjoy going to his office for post-op visits as everyone has been so warm and caring from the very beginning. Special thanks to Margie, Vanessa, Daisy and Molly for their caring and kindness. I wish my primary physician and nurses treated me this well! Thanks again Dr. Pousti, I will continue to recommend you every chance I get. Sincerely, Vivian J

I have no complaints. The before to the after are amazing. The staff are impeccable. I would recommend Dr. Davis to anyone looking to have anything done. Every question answered and the follow up was great. The only thing now is....what to have him fix next?

I wasn't sure what to expect when I went for my first consultation with Dr Chang. I went to discuss my options after having lost nearly 70 lbs I was stuck and needed some type of change. Dr Chang told me Tummy Tuck would be the best choice rather than just lipo. He could remove a lot of my skin from my abdomen. I had the procedure and can't stop looking at myself in the mirror. He did a great job. I went back and had liposuction done on the middle and lower parts of my body. I feel so great. He and his staff treat you with such great care and attention. I would and have recommended him to anyone I know and care about.

I went to Dr Chang to help me get my figure back. I had spent the last two years working on weight loss and had lost 80 lbs. I still had some weight to lose, but had plateaued. I needed a post and Dr Chang's Timeless Tummy Tuck was exactly what I needed. He and his staff were extremely attentive. I personally contact Dr Chang after hours and he was very helpful. I've never experienced such attention from any doctor and staff. You can tell they care about their patients. I also went back and had liposuction as well. I plan on having a few more procedures and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. I would recommend him to anyone I know and care about.

Dr. Mofid and staff are amazing. Not only are they professional, but they genuinely care for a patients well being. From the beginning to the end, Dr. Mofid personally called me to ensure I was feeling well and had no issues or concerns. The patient coordinator; Setara was helpful when it came to all my detailed questions. This office was a perfect experience for me. This was my first time doing any kind of surgery so naturally I was very hesitant. I had seen his work but I was still apprehensive about taking the plunge. I decided on doing liposuction of the flanks, back rolls, abdomen, inner and outer thighs. I got a skingraft to the buttocks(Brazilian Buttlift). Everything turned out phenomenal, I am grateful for the staff and the Dr's genius surgery technique. Thank you!!!

Dr. Poindexter is a great surgeon and a great human being. I could open a dictionary and look up all the different words for brilliant, kind, understanding, and talented, and even all of them combined couldn’t convey just what an amazing doctor and person he is. His aesthetic talent, surgical skill, and unsurpassed eye for balance, harmony and symmetry are unparalleled. Dr. Poindexter has a very calming presence, a great sense of humor, and he sees the whole person, not just parts of the face or body. He has a ton of empathy and compassion, but he’s laid-back and funny at the same time. His patience and listening skills are tremendous and his EQ (emotional intelligence) is clearly as high as his IQ (and that’s obviously through the roof.) I’m so lucky he’s my plastic surgeon and I tell everyone that. I’ve had breast implants, fat grafting and liposuction by Dr. Poindexter, and I could not be happier with the results! He also does my Botox treatments, and he’s an expert injector who makes them as painless as possible and makes me look rested and not surprised. If you’re thinking about having plastic surgery, go see Dr. Poindexter. He is a GREAT plastic surgeon and an all-around extraordinary person! Plus Jill, the CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) who performed my anesthesia was wonderful. Anesthesia is scary to me and she did the impossible – she made it NOT scary! She put me at ease and even made me laugh. I was totally relaxed. I went back the morning after surgery for the routine first day after surgery visit to see Dr. Poindexter and he was fantastic as always, and the nurse, Cheri, was just so caring and nice to be around! My whole surgical experience was terrific. Go see Dr. Poindexter – choosing him as my plastic surgeon is one of the best decisions I ever made!

  • Rob Kardashian - LocateADoc

    Rob Kardashian is the black sheep of the Kardashian clan. It is not that he is not good looking or rich or successful. Rather, he is a person who marches to the beat of his own drum. In fact, he does not mind messing up the Kardashian nest every now and again. Rob has always felt somewhat in the shadow of his famously gorgeous sisters. Although he has been shown much love and support from his family, especially from his sister Khloe, he always felt a little distant from the family.

  • Dr Thomas Write liposuction picture - LocateADoc

    One of the most important parts of preparing for liposuction is to educate yourself on all aspects of the procedure. The desired effect of liposuction is to rid your body of excess fat and weight, but you must prepare yourself for what you should realistically expect. You may have an idea as to how much it costs, but this can vary tremendously from patient to patient. There are tons of small questions that must be answered before you decide is this is an appropriate option for you.
