After going to a plastic surgeon in Cerritos for over a decade, retired and moved to Fawnskin and Big Bear. Needed to find a new doctor. Had a procedure done up here by an aesthetician, but was very painful. Did months of research and found this most wonderful doctor. Very kind, compassionate and totally supportive of your every need! So pleased with results of CO2 and Ultherapy treatments! Greatest staff! The minute you walk into his office, from Elizabeth to Kyle, every staff member is awesome

He is easy to talk to; he listens to your concerns & he tells you all your options. He takes great pride in his work & wants you to be happy with results. You're not treated like "just another patient" because he takes time with you to address what you're looking to accomplish & he makes suggestions to reach that goal. He tells you the truth. I had face work done & am VERY happy with results. He does in depth follow up with you & addresses anything he or you thinks may need attention. An artist!

Using the latest in technology Dr. Sofonio was able to remove bascel skin cancer from my face without leaving a scar. I had another one removed 3 years ago, and again no scar or down time. I wish more surgeons would invest in this equipment.

I highly recommend Mark Sofonio MD he goes the extra mile and is very professional and takes the time to answer any and all questions after my procedure he even called me an hour and a half later to find out how I was doingI would definitely go back to him for any other procedure that he offers and I have the utmost faith in his work

I had excess abdominal skin removed by Dr. Sofonio due to extreme weight loss. While it is a major surgery, I felt safe having it done by Dr. Sofonio in his surgery center. I knew I was in good hands and he got the job done. My incision is still healing but everything looks good. They are very careful to make sure you don't develop an infection, which is vital. Their office is clean and nice and the doctor is personable and good with followup. Am so happy I had the surgery.

Went back to the doctor to complete some work previously paid for, and was turned away. Even after several attempts to get him to do the right thing. How would you feel to get half a operation? Now am left with embarrassing results. This guy lacks integrity, honesty and professionalism. He does not fulfill his obligations. The work he did perform was subpar at best and has left me scarred for life.

Dr. Sofonio is one of only 4-5 plastic surgeons in the Coachella Valley who actually named Plastic Surgery as his field in medical school. He is a a top surgeon . All my procedures have been perfect. Choosing a Plastic Surgeon is one of the most important decisions you will make . I wanted someone who knew this field perfectly, who course of study was in this field. You will will not find a better qualified plastic surgeon than Dr. Mark Sofonio

I'm a 54 year old woman who grew up in Florida with Major Sun Damage on my face. I had lines on my face, around my eyes, mouth etc. I decided to do the CO2 laser resurfacing which I will admit I was a bit nervous. Dr Sofonio and his staff were awesome! So professional and made me feel so comfortable before this procedure which was done on Nov 2, 2015, In fact my sister and I did it on the same day! It's amazing the outcome of my face , like night and day! Dr Sofonio I will say did a remarkable
