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…"
