Dr Cabrera is a uniquely talented physician. His skill in reconstructing my nose due to skin cancer and MOHs surgery is beyond impressive. His explanations of the surgeries as well as his concern for my well being were much appreciated. His office staff is outstanding and accommodating. I felt secure and confident under Dr Cabrera's care. He is a master of his art!

I went to Dr. Rafael Cabrerra on July 7, 2015 because I was experiencing pain in my cheeks. He indicated I had an infection due to the cheek implants I have. He put me through extensive testing, including CT scan. He said I needed surgery to remove the bones but didn't tell me I had no bones to remove. Testing should have indicated that. He put me through pain & expense for what. And still in pain. As an experienced surgeon, should know issues with implants. In addition, he is rude & arrogant.

Dr. Cabrera removed a malignant melanoma from my back and performed a sentinel node biopsy. The surgeries were performed using a local anesthetic rather than general anesthesia. The operation was performed in the surgical suite at his office rather than in a hospital outpatient surgical unit which reduced anxiety before, during and after the operation. He is an outstanding plastic surgeon, and has surrounded himself with an excellent, well-trained staff.

I first went for injectibles. Dr. Cabrera would not do the procedure because he said it was not what I needed. I really respected that since he easily could have charged a fee to do what I requested. Months later he performed a neck lift on me. Although he does not use general anesthesia, the procedure was 100% painless. There was no pain in recuperation and I am thrilled with the result! He is a gifted surgeon and I strongly recommend him.
