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.

Bryan, TX – Mar 29, 2019
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.

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

College Station, TX – Oct 21, 2018
I went to Dr. Rude's Office to get Lip Fillers & to fill the bags under my eyes (tear troughs) I was happy with the result at first but it did not last but a 1 MONTH. When I went back for a follow up to discuss my concerns with him (cause he originally told me these fillers would last closer to 1 year) he told me he was unable to compare my before & after pictures, because his pictures he took in his office were all blurred, HOW UNPROFESSIONAL. What a waste of $1100. DO NOT COME TO THIS OFFICE

Dr. Rude and his staff are amazing. I got breast implants and a lift, and while I haven't healed enough to see the final result, I'm confident I will be so happy! Tara was absolutely wonderful and made me feel at ease when I came in for the surgery. Dr Rude explained everything from the first visit until the surgery date, and answered all of my questions thoroughly. He even called me at 8pm that night to check on me. I'd highly recommend BVPS!

Absolute great experience! The customer service from the office team made it a great experience as well as the final out come of the procedure. Dr.Rude sold me with his professionalism, and his laid back demeanor. It’s now 3 months after the procedure and I’m still very pleased with the outcome. Again, the office team impressed me greatly. You could tell they loved their job!

From my first appointment in 2014, Dr. Rude and his staff were knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. It took me two years of complications to receive my final reconstruction surgery in 2016 after cancer. Through five surgeries, Dr. Rude and his staff not only met my every need, but became part of my family during this process. The whole team receives five stars in my book.

His excision of a basal cell on my leg was so sloppy I ended up going to a wound center for 4 MONTHS to correct and heal his incorrect incision and he could care less. He was Rude and almost made me lose my leg! Beware and stay away from him.!
