The best doctors! Dr Tatiana, Ivo, Elsa, and the nurse Nancy, each of them care about their patients on a personal level, for me they are as part of my family. Excellent front staff, with good care and professionalism. . They've been my doctors for over 9 years and I've never had a complaint. This includes all the girls who have worked in the front office and others who are still working as Keyla the manager. Love them !

I cannot recommend Dr. Pestana. While he seemed pleasant enough, the staff in his office was horrible. Because they couldn't schedule me for more than a month because he was going on vacation (which was fine), they said I had to come back before the procedure for another consult (at a cost to me, of course). When I asked if I could get by w/out that because I just needed local anesthesia, they got furious that I would challenge their extra $$ and asked me to leave. Terrible experience.

He has the most wonderful bedside manner. He makes you feel very comfortable and feel genuinely cared for. I felt a trust in him the first time I came into his office. He did a wonderful job on my nose. I feel much more confident and can breathe correctly finally! He was recommended by two friends that are very happy with their results and I will continue to recommend him to my friends .

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January of 2016. I decided to have a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. Since the first visit with Dr. Pestana he has made me feel very comfortable and has made sure that I have a perfect understanding of any procedure he has had to do as part of the reconstruction process. Every part of the reconstruction process has exceeded my expectations. I couldn't be happier with my results. The most caring and knowledgeable Dr. I could have asked for

I had surgery last week withDr.Pestana.Since the first visit I felt comfortable that my anxiety for the procedure alleviated. I really like the fact that he took his time to first listen and explain every questions and past medical history. That alone made at peace. His staff has the same goal. I already recommended other people that I know to him. Nowadays when you find a physician that is not lead to finance only but really is focus to patient care it is a really a plus. Thank you Dr.Pestana

Dr.Ivo Pestana is a phenomanel doctor... I am so lucky to have found such a great doctor. He is the kind of surgeon that does what is good and great for your body. I was looking a plastic surgeon and I was afraid to look artificial on my rhinoplasty. But after I found him this fear was gone. He is such great doctor and my nose looks wonderful. I am looking forward for my next plastic surgery now :) Thanks Dr. Pestana for everything :)
