I was referred to Dr. Dresner by three different doctors. He has a very good reputation among physicians on his surgery skill. I have facial nerve paralysis on one side, so my surgery was not the ordinary eyelid lift. He is an excellent surgeon and I am very pleased with the results. He also did surgery on my husband and my mother. Yes, I would recommend him to my family and friends.

Recently had upper and lower eyelid surgery by Dr. Dresner ... fantastic experience ... remarkable results ... far exceeded my expectations! His practice - Eyesthetica - was outstanding ... very professional and well organized. Staff in office and the Surgery Center were excellent, well trained, friendly and caring. Highly recommend Dr. Dresner!

I was very pleased with the results of my eyelid surgery!

I'm a 5 Star Recommender of the trust I have in Dr. Dresner operating on my eyes. I had an outwardly turned and sagging lower eyelid that was causing me to have eye irritations including infections. I did have some previous work done by another doctor, who was not an ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeon so consequently I ended up seeing Dr. Dresner to correct my bilateral eyelid retraction. I am so grateful to have had him perform the surgery. I look and feel so much better now.

Did what he said he would do without any problems. What more can one ask? Surgery group was above special. Will be recommending two of my friends.

Two years ago Dr. Dresner did an eye lift and removed the bags under my eyes and I'm thrilled by the results, as well as being more than satisfied with the entire experience. Dr. Dresner was patient and caring and a real artist! His entire office staff is first class - always a good reflection on the doctor. I look ten years younger and nobody can tell I had any surgery at all. I wish I needed another surgery so I could have another excellent Dr. Dresner experience!

I would never recommend this doctor. Waited over an hour for a consultation. Rude and arrogant. Then charged me for a procedure I never had. I have a medical background and therefore am familiar with medical terminology. A layman would assume the doctor knows what he's doing/billing and would pay up. This is just wrong.

Dr. Dresner is a true artist! He perfectly performed an upper blepharoplasty when I was 40 years old. Recently (& 24 years later) it was time to get rid of my under eye puffiness, plus clean up my upper eyelids. Dr. Dresner is kind, honest and gentle. He listens, thoroughly explains the procedure, and wants his patients to be not merely ?happy?, but be THRILLED with the result. And I am! I cannot imagine a physician who is more competent -- and I would recommend him without reservation.
