I had breast surgery with Dr. Greco in May 2016. He is very professional, kind, trustworthy and compassionate about what you want and the overall surgery. I could not be happier with the perfect results. Dr. Greco and his team are amazing, and I highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you!

I had hand surgery on my right hand . DR Greco did a wonderful job on my hand. I have had surgery on my left and right hand for the same problem before. Two weeks after surgery I was able to close my hand into a fist . I also had very little trama to the hand . Pain was very little after one day after surgery. Dr Greco called me the night after surgery and a week later checking on me. I would. Recommend Dr Greco to and surgery he was performing.
Thank you for your kind comments and we re elated that your experience met your expectations. That is our goal in all patients.

I decided to have liposuction after spending an endless amount of time in the gym trying to get rid of some problem areas. I did my research and decided to consult with Dr.Richard Greco. After my consultation I knew Dr.Greco was the right surgeon for me. Any apprehension or questions I had about the procedure were answered during my consult.Not to mention the new interactive touchMD tool that I was able to login to that evening to show my husband my entire consult with photos!
We are constantly looking for new ways to educate our patients. We have really liked TouchMD for our in office consultation and for our patients ability to review the consultation at home when they are not nervous and have a significant other or friend to share it with. Thank you for your kind comments
My daughter had a breast reduction. Many problems with infections and dr Greco redid a section in office. The scarring is terrible. The incisions are totally in the wrong place as far as camouflaging any scarring. She looks like she has been butchered. She was corresponding by email with Dr Greco for a few weeks but he totally stopped responding. I'd take her back there but the fact he completely stopped responding to her emails and the way Hayes liooks now, I wil take her to another surgeon.
The goal of our practice is to deliver quality care with great customer service. We invite any patient that is having difficulties to come back to our office so that we can look at any areas of concern and address them. I am not aware of any patient named Hayes in our practice, we do not perform extensive email conversations because it is impossible to look at the problems and solve them. If any patient has concerns - please visit any of our doctors so we can help resolve the difficulties.

I had a tummy tuck & some liposuction. I was told that the liposuction would be the most painful. I did not feel that was the case for me. I thought it was totally tolerable & much less painful than I had expected. As anyone would be prior to this type of surgery, I felt a bit nervous. Dr. Greco's staff was excellent in making me feel less anxious, and they were right. The nurses who stayed with me through the night were wonderful & I couldn't be happier with the results.
It is our goal to provide the utmost in service and education before and after the procedure. Our overnight staff are extremely helpful in those patients whom require an overnight stay to help keep them comfortable in the first 12 - 23 hours. thank you for sharing your experience, Many women fear pain with cosmetic surgery, and in today's world, we have been able to reduce that experience significantly.
