I feel I was very blessed to have found Dr Hidalgo. I found him after experiencing a very poor outcome with another doctor, I was left with an extensive infection and folded skin on my cheek. Dr Hidalgo was able to correct the fold on my cheek and repair the scarring from the infection so it is much less noticeable.

Extremely professional and courteous. Listened closely and genuinely interested in me being happy with the results.

Dr. Hidalgo was incredibly professional and straightforward. Never pushed any procedures and was very honest with results and expectations. His staff was beyond caring, respectful and competent. I am so happy with the overall experience. Definitely would come back in the future.

Really bad experience!! Would never recommend this doctor to a friend/family member - went in for two procedures and was extremely unhappy with both. Dr. Hidalgo seemed more interested in getting pictures "for his wall" than acknowledging the extent to which he negatively altered my appearance. Definitely recommend looking elsewhere!

Dr. Hidalgo did not try to sell me on a number of procedures but rather looked at me and told me what he thought I needed to do to look my best. He recommended a procedure to do immediately and a procedure to think about in 5 years or so which I appreciated.

Dr. Hidalgo is professional and polite, with a refined esthetic. I am very pleased with the results of my breast augmentation and the entire experience was pleasant. I will highly recommend him to my friends.
