Care Philosophy

Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Corey knows the importance of focusing on each patient as an individual. "People are paying the doctor to speak to the doctor, and, while much information can be given by other office personnel, that cannot take the place of the doctor-patient relationship." Dr. Corey believes that the patient ends the visit, not the doctor. To further ensure effective communication with his patients, Dr. Corey speaks both Spanish and Portuguese.

Corey has practiced in Arizona, since 1993 – beginning his practice immediately after completing his residency at the Medical College of Georgia and further cosmetic surgery training in Brazil.

Combining Brazilian Technique and American Standards

At our Scottsdale plastic surgery office, Dr. Corey draws on his extensive training both in Brazil and here in the United States. After graduating from the University Of Utah School Of Medicine and fulfilling prerequisite training in general surgery at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, Dr. Corey entered the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta to begin his plastic surgery residency. It was there that Dr. Corey met Dr. Renato Saltz, one of his professors, who introduced him to some of the surgical ideas and concepts of Brazil.

Intrigued by the Brazilian approach to plastic surgery, Dr. Corey traveled to the country in July 1993 to study in Rio de Janeiro as well as with other surgeons in other cities. His training there taught him to view plastic surgery from a more artistic standpoint.

Our Scottsdale plastic surgeon explains that there are several reasons why the Brazilian approach is somewhat different from that of many American surgeons. "Brazilians seem to have more of an artistic eye, not relying on the same measurement for every woman. We Americans have a tendency to be very technical. We want to know exactly how much to contour and how much to measure. Brazilians seem to approach procedures more artistically. They really believe in sculpting the form and creating curves and lines of the feminine shape. Ultimately, this approach appeals more to my philosophy, helping me provide a balanced approach to surgical beauty."

I would recommend Dr. Corey to anyone wanting to enhance their natural beauty through cosmetic surgery. Dr. Corey is an outstanding surgeon. He listens to his patients surgical desires, and yet provides professional guidance to exceed their expectations. Not only is it important for a surgeon to have excellent practical knowledge and skill, but also excellent bedside manner. Dr. Corey is a shining light when it comes to meeting this criteria.

I received Botox injections from Hilla and she is an excellent esthetician. She took the time and was thorough in explaning the entire process and aftercare. She listened to my needs and took care of me with great attention. She is a professional with a naturally lovely personality. I would highly recommend her services.

Best experience I have ever had! Hilla is very professional, thorough, and very good at what she does! I had tried Botox several times from other places and never received the comprehensive care as I did from Hilla! Thank you!

Comfortable, friendly and informative environment. I feel at ease in the office and the entire staff is so welcoming and patient with my many questions! Today I got Juvederm in my lips and the results are fantastic, the staff is very informative of pre and post procedure instructions and has kept in constant contact with me before and after to ensure best results. Thank you to the amazing team at Corey's office!
Dr.Corey and his staff are extremely patient, detailed and caring. He was able to answer my questions better than all other consultations I had with other doctors I met with in AZ and CA. I am very OCD and a perfectionist so finding the right doctor that can cater to my demands was difficult. However, Dr. Corey was able to help me with ease. I had breast augmentation just last week and they are already looking great and I am recovering fast. He did a wonderful job.

For my first surgery, I couldn't have expected it to go any better! From the PreOp appointment to then PostOp appointment, everything was wonderful! I had saline implants under the muscle and they look AMAZING! I couldn't be happier. I opted for saline instead of silicone for the simple fact I am a worrywart and want to know right away if there is a rupture. Even though saline is far less popular these days, I would recommend to anyone!

Dr Corey and his staff are extremely friendly. He made me feel at ease, he listened to my goals and understood my vision. I love how it's not a one size fits all, it's individualized based on each persons desires and anatomy. What I am most impressed with is his availability. He answers emails promptly and with sincerity to offer the utmost support. There isn't such thing as a dumb question, he offers amazing hand holding each step of the journey.

I was very impressed with Dr Corey and staff. Everyone was polite, knowledgeable and professional. I was made to feel very comfortable during my assessment, I received candid and thoughtful answers to my situation. I am certain I would be in good hands with Dr. Corey.
As always was a pleasure from the minute I walked in to the office. The staff is friendly and beyond professional. Dr. Corey is beyond patient and takes as much time as I need to ask question even when it's as I'm checking out. I would highly reccomend him for breast augmentation and especially replacement.
