What Do Patients Say About Dr. Greco?

The following are excerpts from patient testimonials:

"…I had an Around the World and Thigh Lift on March 17, 2004. I was out of work for less than two weeks. On May 28, 2004 I had a Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation to put me back to the normal C cup I had always had, missing 1 day of work. It is truly amazing that even the normal person like you and I can help ourselves to look and feel better. You don't have to be a movie star to be able to afford it…I have never been able to look in the mirror and see someone not overweight. I could never thank … Dr. Greco … enough for giving me back my life. It has changed my life drastically for the better…"

"…thank you! I went swimsuit shopping…For the first time in years I had a choice in suits and felt good about how I looked…I ended up buying a two-piece!!"

"There are not sufficient words to express my appreciation for all you have accomplished for me… People who have known me for many years stop me on the street and tell me how wonderful I look…Thank you, thank you!"

"…I appreciate the beautiful job you did with my surgery and also for the 'extras' you corrected to give me a finished product I would love."
