The Opus Fractional Plasma laser is a game changer. IT IS AMAZING!! I have been going to Kendal (the most results-oriented aesthetician!) for many years-so glad she's moved closer to my home! She's helped me overcome terrible acne scars and aging skin. I have had other lasers, microneedlings with/out PRP, peels, microderm-you name it! But this is SO different. Much less invasive than traditional needling=no bleeding or swelling- a big bonus= no down time. Immediately after, my fave and neck were so tight, like I had a face lift! Especially around my eyes- it "lifted" the hooding-I LOVE IT!! Kendal is also so PRO at everything she does, whether it is a simple peel and now the Plasma laser, she takes her time to examine your skin and listen to your goals. Kendal spends THE MOST TIME, always doing ABOVE WHAT OTHERS WILL DO. She has changed my life!

I searched and researched for multiple years for a surgeon that I felt comfortable with and fully trusted to perform my breast augmentation. Dr. Engineer was that surgeon that matched all I was looking for. He is very knowledgeable about and meticulous with all of his procedures. He took the time to explain every detail and any questions I had pertaining to my surgery, including pre and post operation care and concerns. Dr. Engineer made sure he and I fully understood what my desired outcomes were. I was given options that were fully explained that helped me be involved with my care plan. Not only is he a wonderful surgeon, he has an amazing personality and bedside manners. I have referred many friends to Dr. Engineer and all are very satisfied

Dr. Engineer is a phenomenal physician. He's a subject matter expert that is great at speaking in terms that his patients will understand. He sets clear expectations for treatment and recovery and gives you the opportunity (and encourages) questions. Even better, he has an impeccable bedside manner, and has hired a best in class a team. I tell anyone who will listen about my great experience.

Dr Engineer has a great bedside manner. Took his time explaining my surgery, what he was going to do. What I was going to feel and not feel :) He also explained the healing process and how I would most likely be feeling.

Dr. Engineer was an excellent doctor. He was prompt, kind and courteous, and he spent as much time as necessary during appointments. He performed hand surgery, and the procedure was explained well, especially how I would feel after surgery and for how long. His staff was excellent, I would highly recommend him.

I would hesitate to recommend Dr. Engineer. I came in for issues in my left arm and he was extremely quick to offer surgery without suggesting alternatives prior. The injury was relatively new and no suggestions other than surgery were provided except one round of corticosteroids. In the end, the surgery had no effect other than lost work and bills. Very rarely do I review things online but in this situation I thought it might be important for future patients. He appears to have the highest

If you are reading this, look no further as you have found THE top notch hand surgeon. Dr. Engineer and his more than courteous and personable staff are undeniably the BEST in the hand care and, arguably, patient care industry! To say Dr. Engineer is knowledgeable in his field would be an understatement. He provides both experience and compassion in the delivery of his assessments of your diagnosis and next steps for treatment of the same. A huge THANKS to Dr. Engineer and his staff!

I dissevered a nerve to my ring finger. Dr. Engineer resectioned it. He explained the healing procedure and what I could expect. He was vigilant about my therapy and generally concerned. His description of the healing process was correct almost to the week! Very impressive doctor on all counts.
