Dr. Joseph M. Mlakar, MD says

 Our best ideas and our best directions come from our patient's feedback.  Most of the feedback we hear is very positive, and that is encouraging.  Occasionally, we hear how we can get better, or how we didn't meet the mark on some issue with some patient.  If we hear about it, we try to fix, especially if it's a problem or an issue that we can fix.  There is some patients in every plastic surgery practice who don't have expectations that we can meet.  We are hopeful that others reading our reviews will understand this.  We also hope that our happy patients are the loudest voice on our review sites.  So tell us what you think!

I had a previous plastic surgery that ended in disappointment. I sought out Dr. Joe to see if there was something that could be done to repair the previous errors from a surgeon years prior. He listened to all my concerns and after an exam, he explained that he could help me. He took extra time and met with me a few separate times. I wanted to be very informed the second time around.I had all my questions answered and felt confident in his abilities and knowledge.It was a success!I am so pleased

I have worked with dr Mlakar more than once. Numerous times actually. There is a reason I keep coming back to him and his staff. He is by far the best there is. And to let u all know- I have been to others. I have had hands on comparison and I will NEVER go to anyone else as long a he is practicing. dr Mlakar is a very passionate, devoted, talented, professional, kind, understanding, flexible, genuine doctors I have had the pleasure of dealing with. His staff especially Karen are just as good.
