Real People Real Results

I LOVE Dr Ashinoff and his staff at the plastic surgery center. I Have never felt so completely comfortable with a doctor and staff than I am there. I had a huge lipoma on my back shoulder that should have been removed years ago. I had not one ounce of pain or discomfort after. Clean and very well run offices. Especially during this covid 19 pandemic. I highly recommend them! Thanks again!

I’m so grateful to Dr. Ashinoff for his excellence in his profession. He provided me with reconstructive surgery after my partial mastectomy. I’m extremely happy with the results. He is also very easy to talk to and will answer any questions (note: write them down incase you forget because I have forgotten a few). He explains things thoroughly and clearly. Many people like myself are very nervous when it comes to surgeries and he had a way of making me feel at ease through the process. I'm truly grateful for that. I'm thankful to have regained my confidence back.

Thank you Dr Ashinoff. After a second diagnosis of breast cancer I sought out Dr. Ashinoff for his advice. He performed reconstruction surgery and I could't be happier with the outcome. At the age of almost 61, I can go bra less, lol. You are an amazing surgeon and I am Blessed to have found you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
