Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Having lived in both Southern California and Nevada and having been treated by cosmetic surgeons in both locations, I can honestly say that Dr. Kyle Yamamoto is the very best! He is kind and empathetic, with great bedside manner. Yet, he is also incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at his craft. Even if I moved back to Newport Beach, CA I would travel the distance to see Dr. Yamamoto!

I have had a deviated septum for several years. When I went to visit other doctors they wanted me to do a regiment of tests and breathing exercises to verify my prognosis. When I was referred to Dr. Yamamoto, he was able to determine the severity of my deviated septum almost immediately. Not only is he a competent doctor, his staff is kind and willing to bend over backwards to help you with anything. 10/10

Everyone greets you as soon as you arrive. They treat you like family and always remember your name. It's things like that that make it comfortable. All the options are explained and and the follow up is easy. Best of all is that you can get an appointment right away if needed. I have referred my friends to Sierra Nevada Cosmetic and Laser Surgery and they love it too.
