Dr Rude and his staff are wonderful! I have been his patient since February of this year for melanoma surgery and the removal of additional areas identified by my dermatologist! Dr Rude and all of his staff go above and beyond to make the experience as easy and pain free as possible! I’m thankful to have them as part of my team of medical professionals working to beat melanoma!

He's the best! He did a perfect tummy tuck & facelift for me in the convenience of his on-site certified surgical suite. Excellent care by staff who are caring & sweet. Doc is very careful & exacting in his work, & I like his philosophy about pain care. A plus: his rates are quite reasonable.

My gynecologist referred me to Dr. Rude for breast reduction surgery. Initially, I was reluctant to begin the process due to being embarrassed about my breast size. However, after finally getting the courage to schedule a consultation, I was so happy that I did. Dr. Rude and his staff made the entire process very comfortable and anxiety free. The surgery was a great success and the post-operative care has been remarkable. I highly recommend Dr. Rude and Brazos Valley Plastic Surgery.

I am 6 weeks out from a breast lift & tummy tuck & am so happy I made the decision to have the procedures performed by Dr. Rude. I could not be more pleased with my results. Dr. Rude and his staff made me feel comfortable & confident in them from the first visit. They also do a great job of spacing out appointments so you are not sitting in a waiting room with several other patients feeling self-conscious like most medical offices.

Could not be more pleased with my breast lift and tummy tuck results and the treatment received by Dr. Rude and his entire staff throughout the process. This was by far a much better experience than I ever anticipated and would definitely refer friends and family!

If you have ever considered Plastic Surgery, DO IT and use Dr. Rude. It will be the best decision you have ever made. I had been going back and forth about a breast reduction & lift for years. I met with several other surgeons, and Dr. Rude was BY FAR my favorite. I had the surgery Dec. 21st 2018. He and his staff made me feel so comfortable and at ease during the whole process. The pre-op, surgery and Post-op all went off without a hitch! I promise, using Dr. Rude will be life changing!

Dr. Rude and his entire staff were so great and made me feel so comfortable, from every appt, up to the day of surgery, and post op. Everyone in his office was kind and always so pleasant. Dr. Rude answered every question I had, never made me feel pressured into actually having surgery and made me aware of all the different options I had when it came the type of surgery I was interested in. I would highly recommend Dr. Rude to anyone who is thinking about having plastic surgery

Dr Rude was amazing during the whole process of my surgery form consult to 6 month follow up. I had consults with 3 different surgeons, Dr rude was who I ended up picking. His office is very nice and clean, staff is great and he has his own surgical room (so you aren’t sharing your surgery space with everyone in somewhere like a hospital) In February 2018 I had breast lift, breast implant and tummy tuck. I felt comfortable through every part of the journey thanks to Dr Rude and his staff. I made
