I am so happy with my experience at lakeshore plastics! I just had cosmetic ear surgery that I have wanted done my entire life and it turned out so much better than I could’ve ever expected. They look so perfect I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire experience! The office lady Robin was super knowledgeable and organized, Dr. Fozo was so nice and helped keep me calm and comfortable throughout my entire procedure, and the nurses are the sweetest! If I ever need anymore work done I will absolutely be returning to Dr. Fozo and would highly recommend him to anyone!

He didn’t even show up for the consultation. Staff is very rude and not professional. Do yourself a fever and find another Dr.

I had a large mass that was right next to my thyroid and extended into my chest. From my first visit with Dr. Fozo, he was very caring and knowledgeable. He explained everything in detail that would happen and I had the surgery done a week ago and everything went great. I highly recommend Dr. Fozo. His bedside manner is very kind and professional.

Dr. Fozo is an exceptional surgeon, He was able to remove my large, 8cm lipoma, from my clavicle area all in one piece, without injuring any of my nerves and muscles. He has a great sense of humor, he listens and takes his time with each and every patient. I was able to get an appointment with him very quickly when my dermatologist thought that my mass may have been lymphoma. Dr. Fozo and his residents eased my mind and reassured me that I would be ok. The office staff worked very hard to get my ct scans covered by my insurance, and they are all so friendly and caring.

I was referred to Dr Fozo for high calcium levels in my blood. I was able to get an appointment and consultation quickly. Dr. Fozo explained what my issue was and took the time to patiently explain and answer all of my questions. He told me my options and I chose to get surgery. I got the surgery within weeks and the results were great. I would recommend Dr. Fozo not only because the surgery was successful. The way I was treated made me comfortable and at ease with everything. The office staff was friendly and my appointments were always on time with little or no waiting. My parathyroid surgery was a success and the results are great.

Dr. Fozo performed a rhinoplasty on me to correct a nasal deformity. Dr. Fozo was very professional. Although I could tell he had a busy schedule, he spent the time necessary to make me feel confident about the surgery and answered my questions. I was actually encouraged by the amount of patients he has under his care. I think this speaks to his work and rapport with people. He is very skilled and I am glad I was able to have him as a surgeon. My surgery turned out well and the recovery was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I took pain medicine for one day and I'm not sure if I even needed to do that. I am very pleased with the surgery and recovery and I owe that to Dr. Fozo.

Top notch from start to finish. Dr. Fozo is a first class ENT. He preformed sinus surgery on me, and it cleared multiple issues I was having. Should I need an ENT again, Dr. Fozo will be my first choice.

Please, do yourself a favor and work with Dr. Fozo! I had been to 3 doctors looking for relief from a very long term problem. I could not find anyone who was willing help before I met Dr. Fozo. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. First of all, the result was amazing. After 16 years of having trouble breathing, I feel like a new person and I have Dr. Fozo to thank. I could not be happier with the result. Second, the process was amazing. I met with two other doctors before I met with Dr. Fozo and they each took 5-6 months to accomplish what Dr. Fozo did on the FIRST VISIT. Because of the second doctor I saw, there was a problem with my case with my insurance company. Because of that doctors notes, they were not going to cover the surgery. In spite of the extra work required to appeal the decision after the fact, Dr. Fozo still agreed to take the case on. He and his staff worked diligently for months to get through all of the red tape and hurdles the insurance com

Dr. Michael Fozo was truly a god send for me. After suffering with recurrent sinus infections/migraines etc. for what has seemed like forever I was referred to Lakeshore Ear, Nose, Throat Center. Dr. Fozo's bedside manner was impeccable. He was friendly, informative and didn't jump the gun on surgery. I was first treated with additional antibiotics and followed up accordingly. When my symptoms did not improve I was then scheduled for surgery. The office staff was courteous and helpful answering any questions I had. The office is up to date with technology with online check in and text reminders. I had my surgery on 5/10/2019 and I feel amazing! I had septoplasty, sinusotomy, ethmoidectomy and an antrostomy done. I had very minimal bleeding, no bruising, no packing and required very very minimal pain control. I can only attest this to the phenomenal work of Dr. Michael Fozo. I simply cannot thank him and his office enough! The entire experience from start to finish was top notch!

I was very happy with my experience with Dr. Fozo. He had a great bedside manner and inspired my confidence. And, it wasn't just talk. A couple of days after my surgery he squeezed me in to check me out when my recovery was not going quite as I expected. It turns out that I contracted a cold and that my surgical results were just fine. Now I can breathe at night when I go to sleep. Hurray! Huge difference.

Saw Dr Fozo due to parathyroidectomy - he was very thorough - explained the surgery - made it very easy for me - taking it step by step - all my questions answered - day of surgery at St. John's Moross location - went perfectly - everyone was very professional - all staff introduced themselves and explained what was going to happen - made me feel confident of my choice - very satisfied with the whole procedure.

I would highly recommend Dr. Fozo! He was very professional yet had a wonderful, caring bedside manner. I like that he offered alternative treatments rather than just surgery. The office staff was pleasant. It was easy to communicate through the patient portal. I was chronically sick from sinus infections, difficulty sleeping, headaches, body aches, trouble thinking. Basically felt awful all the time. After medicinal treatment I had sinus surgery and the relief was instant! Thank you Dr. Fozo!

I have high praise for Dr. Fozo. Following Mohs surgery for basal cell carcinoma on my nose by another doctor, Dr. Fozo performed what is called repair of defect with nasal flap. During my consultation Dr. Fozo let me know upfront that after surgery it would take time for me to see my original nose again but that I would have it back. When my stitches were removed I was amazed. As time passed my nose looked even better. I am happy beyond words and so grateful Dr. Fozo performed my surgery.
