This seemed like a state of the art office when I started but I have watched the standard of care and safety seriously degrade over the time I was treated there. She exercised poor decisions on a procedure on my face using a product that all other doctors told me should not have to been used . A year and $1000's of $ later I'm still trying to correct her error. Her attitude toward her own errors is to try to blame the patient. Beware

She may be great at superficial or less invasive procedures but definitely get more information and/or a second opinion with more invasive/ "sophisticated" procedures.

I went in for a breast augmentation with Dr. Petti. I had a wonderful experience during the consultation, procedure, and follow-up appointments. The office is serene and comfortable, and the staff are warm and friendly. I feel safe and unusually comfortable in front of those who have needed to see my bare breasts for both photos and examination. I have always felt very uneasy even at the prospect of strangers seeing my bare breasts, but the politeness and professionalism of everyone in the offic

Dr. Petti did a great job on my breast lift (with implant remove&replace). I have a very uneven chest wall that is extremely noticeable without implants. Dr. Petti spent hours in surgery to ensure the lift and implants hid my deformity. At 5 weeks post op, you can't even tell that my chest wall is uneven. I am very pleased with the natural and youthful look.

Dr. Petti performed what I thought was going to be a routine breast enlargement for me in December 2014. I was not looking for a huge enhancement, I'm 5 8 and 120, I wanted a size B. It is understood that my breasts were slightly different sizes and that would be corrected with the surgery. She did not correct them, one is now a size C and the other a B, a significant difference. One is much lower and larger. When I asked her to correct it she wanted to charge and additional $4K.
