I went to Refermat to get a cyst removed. I had a bad feeling from the beginning as he wasn't very warm or comforting. He provided me with no information on how to care for the scarring post-surgery. He told me that after a couple weeks the stitches would dissolve, but about a month later I was getting them painfully yanked out of my face. I'm now left with a red, raised line on my face that often creates random, shooting pain.

Dr Refermat operated on both me and my husband. He is extremely talented and very kind. Can't say enough about him!

Dr. Refermat did my breast augmentation about 5 years ago. He was very professional, honest, and personable. At the time, I expressed to him that while I was choosing to get breast implants, I did want to have children in the future and would like to breast feed if possible. Dr. Refermat said he couldn't promise anything but that he would proceed with the utmost caution in order to give me the best chance possible at future breastfeeding. I am currently breastfeeding my daughter with 0 issues.
