Dr Black did a very nice job on a tummy tuck for me in 2003, the results are still there so the surgery was even better than expected. At the time of the procedure everything went well, the down time was minimal and Dr. Black's 'bed-side' manner was encouraging, the experience was a success and I am still pleased all these years later, you will not be disappointed with him. Dr. Black removed cancer from the tip of my nose and it is not obvious unless I tell people, again, a very nice job.
