Absolutely without a doubt he is such an amazing doctor who honestly cares about his patients. For myself who was referred to Dr. Black from Dr. McCann, for breast cancer reconstruction. Microscopically. Talk about bedside manners/compassion he is outstanding. He is dedicated and very much a great doctor as well as personally caring. Really helped me above and beyond through this journey. As long of a procedure that I went through. Dr. Black was there from beginning to end. Talent and compassion for each and everyone who is his patient. Thank you for everything.

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.
