I think he could tell I was shocked, he said “you may not think that’s what’s going on, but it is.” (He knows best –about my motivations!! I should have walked out right then.) Then he said, “Did a friend of yours have this done?” – as if I am copying other people. And he said “Asians have round faces and wide jaws, it’s your heritage” (not true, he’s lumping a lot of ethnicities together). He acted like he wanted to hear my opinion, but then kept interrupting to say I am wrong, and he seemed delighted to state I was wrong when he asked loaded questions. He kept looking at me intently to see my reaction. It felt like he enjoyed making me uncomfortable but he did it all with this chipper, upbeat, giggly and overly friendly manner, so it was even more weird and felt like gaslighting. I was shocked and stunned, it was hard to believe a doctor was acting like this. It was by far the worst doctor visit I’ve ever had.

Simply the best! Dr Sullivan performed an otoplasty on my son after a previous surgeon had failed to achieve the best results. Dr Sullivan did an amazing job and gave my teenager his confidence back. Him and his staff are kind and compassionate and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr Sullivan is a true artist!

I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude to Dr. Sullivan. Dr. Sullivan is not your typical doctor. He is so nice, so friendly, has a wonderful sense of humor, and most of all - he is super professional. My one hour surgery went by without any pain or discomfort. Dr. Sullivan was very gentle and the atmosphere in the operation room was pleasant and relaxing. It was such a good experience, or if I may use his words: "just like a day at the spa"... Thank you!

An amazing and kind-hearted individual. He cares about his craft and heard my needs and blew me away with the results, but more than that Dr. Sullivan and his staff were the ones that worked hard to meet my schedule, put me with other doctors in my network and made it all possible.

Words can’t explain how much I adore Dr. Sullivan and his staff . His wife is kind, honest, brilliant and compassionate. Sullivan’s staff is the friendliest , most competent and genuine group — especially office manager, Jennifer. Taylor and Sullivan Plastic Surgery is the only place I’ll do cosmetic surgery. I work television so I’m very paranoid and picky . I wholeheartedly trust Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Taylor and owe them more “thank yous” than words can ever describe.

Dr. Sullivan performed a cleft lip repair on my son Boston when he was 5 1/2 months old & also did a cleft palate repair when he was 11months old & the results were breath taking! Boston is now 4 years old & you wouldn’t be able to tell he had a cleft at all if you didn’t already know! Dr. Sullivan is amazing at what he does & we are grateful Boston was in his hands.

Dr. Sullivan is an amazing doctor. I have been to his office multiple times for a scar on my arm. Initially I was so worried because other doctors had told me it was a keloid scar, and there was nothing that could be done for it. Dr. Sullivan immediately put me at ease and told me it was a hypertrophic scar that in fact was treatable. A few cortisone injections later, my scar has gone from itchy, raised and unsightly, to flat and easy to cover up. He is one of the nicest doctors I have ever had!

Dr. Sullivan operated on my late last year after I broke my nose. He explained my options clearly, surgery was scheduled quickly and his follow up was great. His office staff is efficient and pleasant. Hopefully I will not need his services in the future, but if I do I will return to him.

Outstanding -- you are indeed fortunate if Dr. Sullivan is your doctor. I had a major injury and am now, in short time, fixed up and happy, thanks to Dr. Sullivan's skilled and thoughtful help! I was referred to him by the ER of Mt Auburn Hospital when I turned up with a jaw broken in 4 places (in fact crushed in front) and a big gash. His staff are very friendly; they cheered me on, and scheduled me right away for a visit and surgery, which has been hugely successful. I recommend him highly!

Dr. Sullivan is truly the epitome of selfless, compassionate doctor. He turned one of the most traumatic experiences of my life into a seamless process. From the moment he arrived at the ER, he did everything he could to ease my pain & worries. I had a really bad accident & cut my head open down to my skull. Not only was he incredibly supportive and reassuring, but he also delivered. His work is truly incredible. The scar is barely noticeable & it's only been 3 weeks. I cannot thank him enough!

Dr. Sullivan is extremely caring and generous, addressed my every concern, and put me at ease. His knowledge and instincts are extensive. I'd mentioned that my husband, who was with me, often made a certain sound while sleeping. Dr. S. deduced after a close look he might have sleep apnea & should be tested. Tests revealed a severe, dangerous case of it, now being treated. We both believe Dr. Sullivan lengthened and in fact saved his life, and will be forever grateful to this kind, gifted doctor.

Dr Sullivan is a wonderful plastic surgeon. He has the best bedside manors I have ever experienced. Dr Sullivan is compassionate and listens to your every concern. He explains everything fully and does not rush through the visit or make you feel like you have taken up enough of his time and wants to conclude with the consultation. I am beyond completely satisfied with the results of my surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Sullivan earlier this year and he did the most perfect job. I met with another doctor prior and immediately chose him to perform the procedure. He instilled trust easily with his intelligence and friendly demeanor. My nose looks amazing and he had the best bedside manner and follow up care. I would 100% recommend him as a plastic surgeon.
