Have had to repeat procedure multiple times without success. Pain and discomfort persist. Staff is indifferent and ill equipped to resolve issues. Dr. tells you to come in and then is not there and you are left to deal with medical aids who have little or no knowledge!

I was actually booked with another surgeon, but decided to get a second opinion. From start to finish it was amazing. Dr. Hurst is very professional and explains everything to you. You never feel rushed or not cared for. All of his staff are amazing. They follow you through the entire process. Not to mention how pleased I am with my results . I highly recommend.

I have had to experience poor service from your staff. They act like they do not care. No wonder your stars are not high and who do you have to blame, your staff. The are supposed to be profession and provide courteous assistance, what they did was contact my scheduled doctor to let him know how I have been calling your office so that I can geoperdize my visit with my doctor. I am positive if this continues trust no money in the world can keep a doctor. It is the proffesinalism, courteous.

From the min I walked in for consult, I was treated with the utmost respect . Dr. Hurst, came promptly into exam room. We talked about all aspects and his last words were, " Do you have any questions ?" I had the surgery and couldn't be happier. Dr. Hurst still asks same question everytime I see him. I highly recommend him. Dr. Hurst thank you so much for fixing what I considered a deformity .

Dr. Hurst is an amazingly compassionate, intelligent & open-minded surgeon, who put my safety first & even allowed me to use alternative methods on a gaping wound left open by a MOHS surgeon at another practice. Because of all this, I won't need reconstructive surgery after all, meaning Dr. Hurst also puts the patient's best interest ahead of his bank account. If I ever do need any type of plastic surgery, I'll be calling Dr. Hurst immediately & am recommending him to everyone I know.

I went into Dr Hurst office for a medically necessary consult met Dr Hurst he was excellent his staff sadly I would have to say otherwise. Constant laziness it took them over a week to send in a authorization for surgery then whoever sent it in vindictively coded it as a cosmetic surgery which is definitely not the case I am a cancer survivor trying to move on and they have done nothing except cause more trama for me and my family I asked for a surgery date they told me no not until the insur

Dr. Hurst and his staff are incredibly compassionate and professional. I've had multiple surgeries, and my results are amazing. I couldnt be more pleased with him and his work. He takes his time and has always made me feel like I am his only patient. Tami and Samantha make things run smoothly so he can do what he does best in the operating room. I highly recommend him if you are looking for the best plastic surgeon in Tucson.

I was referred to Dr. Hurst for an in situ melanoma removal. My original appointment was supposed to be surgery day, yet after waiting 1 hour in the lobby I found out that no surgery would be performed. After rescheduling that appointment for the following week and showing up ready for my surgery at the second appointment, I was informed that they had without my permission changed my appointment. No one had bothered to call to tell me that. Can't wait to see what they'll do for appointment 3.

Dr. Hurst and his staff were amazing! I came from Gilbert to have surgery done by him and it was well worth it. Tami worked with my schedule and accommodated me in such a professional manner. Dr. Hurst even came in on a Saturday to do my consultation. I love my results! I have recommended him to my fiance. She wants to see him for a breast lift and implants. I have confidence again and I couldn't be more pleased.

Dr. Hurst performed two surgeries on me to remove lesions inside my mouth . He missed some tissue the first time around so had to do a second surgery. I ended up with a hardened ridge at the front of my mouth which is visible when I open my mouth. He did a 10 day follow up when my mouth was still swolleneed but did not have me come back for a three month follow up exam to see the end result. I am disappointed in the surgery outcome.

Dr. Hurst performed a very delicate operation on my infant son to help correct some birth defects that were keeping him from breathing properly. I trusted him with my son's care completely and I felt that while he didn't follow up often, he did take great care to ensure that my husband and I were consulted about my son's care and prognosis. He even gave me his personal cell number should I have any questions about my son's care. Very glad to have a surgeon with his specialized skills in Tucson.

Dr. Hurst and his office manager, Tami, made my experience outstanding. I would without a doubt recommend him for any cosmetic surgery. He listened to my needs and gave me the results I wanted. I was very nervous, but after meeting with him I knew he was the right Doctor for me. Tami was very knowledgeable and I felt confident with my decision. She was always there when I needed to ask a question. Thank you Dr.Hurst for giving me the confidence I needed.
