Dr. Riefkohl performed a facelift on me 5 years ago. He was very condescending to me in our first meeting; I was nervous anyway, and his manner did not set me at ease. But he was highly recommended by a friend, so I thought I would go ahead. Afterward, I was not given sufficient follow-up care. After stitches were removed, that was it. The facelift looks good, but after 5 years I still have lots of numbness, and some pain, around my ears and the stitch marks never completely disappeared.

A brilliant plastic surgeon with the eye of an artist. He looked at my face prior to lift, showed me what he was going to do and the result was fabulous. It's been SEVEN years and the work has held up. The office and OR are immaculate, staff wonderful. I looked at the results of the ladies who had surgery on the same day as I did (we were in the waiting room together post-op) and they looked amazing. Husbands beaming. Would give Dr. Riefkohl 5x5 stars if I could. Eyelids next.

I interviewed two physicians whom came highly recommended. Upon meeting Dr. Riefkohl, I knew he was the right surgeon for me. He thoroughly answered my questions; validated my desired results were within reason; explained expected recovery process; warm and engaging staff and comfortable facility that ensures privacy post surgery. The entire experience on day of surgery was easy and comfortable. He is known for creating a totally natural result and that's exactly what I have! I'm thrilled!!
