Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

It took me about seven years of wanting (and debating) an abdominoplasty (full tummy tuck) before I decided to do it - and the only reason that finally convinced me was finding the right surgeon. Dr. Richard H. Kutz is the best out there. He is exceptionally professional, incredibly smart at what he does, and a perfectionist in his work. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Kutz provided the information I needed, answered my questions fully, and completely prepared me for this procedure and the recovery. There have been no surprises in this entire process, other than the amazing results I have experienced so quickly into recovery - due to his exceptional surgical work. I am forever grateful for his work as he has changed my life for the better, and I could not recommend Dr. Kutz enough.

He was excellent! I had a wrist that was holding me back from knitting, kayaking, skiing.....in other words it was a real pain. Dr. Kutz fixed it with minor surgery that has given me back the activities that I love. Thank you Dr. Kutz.

I could not have asked for a better Doctor than Dr. Richard Kutz at South Portland Plastic and Hand. He answered all of my questions via email pre-surgery and completely put me at ease about having breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Kutz was professional and highly knowledgeable about this subject and I felt 100% comfortable with him. My postoperative outcome is EXACTLY what I wanted and I could not be happier. I highly recommend Dr. Kutz and would see him again without hesitation.
