I have been so pleased with my experience with Dr. Stokes and his entire staff. Through every step of my breast reduction journey: from initial consultation to actual surgery and now through recovery, they have truly cared for me as a patient and person. Dr. Stokes is such a kind and caring surgeon, and I felt so calm and at ease when the day of surgery finally arrived. My aftercare has exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Stokes!!

Dr. spent little time (15 mins) before operation explaining what would be done and outcome. Sent prescription the night before which I wasn't told about and didn't know when to take. Had a complete meltdown in pre op room complaining to my Husband and myself that he did not get enough money to do these operations and did not want to perform them. His attitude was infantile and rude. At stitch removal he peered at them and promptly left. Of course, 3 stitches were left in that I had to take out!

Excellent results with Dr. Stokes! He performed a full abdominoplasty and he and his staff were professional, knowledgeable, and kept me at ease from consultation to post surgery. Dr. Stokes took the time to explain the entire surgery and what to expect afterwards. I would recommend him to anyone looking to reconstruct their abdomen!

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Stokes, as well as all of the medical staff here at Pinehurst Surgical. Walking into the office I felt comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Stokes answered all of my questions as well as gave me important information regarding my surgery. He also came up with a surgical plan that fit my specific need as this was my second breast augmentation. Dr. Stokes exceeded my highest expectations, I refer anyone I know to him who is looking for this surgery.
