Had an amazing experience with Dr Vijay and his team. They were so kind and helpful throughout my entire appointment set up process and surgery. I felt very comfortable and no one was irritated when I flip flopped back and forth on sizes for my breast augmentation. They were all incredibly patient and kind. Surgery went great and I am all healed and well! Great office and great doctor!

Had a great experience with doctor Vijay with my forehead lines , lip filler and my augmentation. He was very caring and kind and did a great job on my surgery and my face. His hands are always steady and his manner is very reassuring. I am happy I chose to go to him.

Horrible!!!! I didn't want a makeover, I just wanted a simple removal of a skin tag on my eyelid. He was very condescending and let me know that he was not doing anything unless I let him do an eyelift on both eyes. His assistant who is 30 years younger than me, was brought over to tell me that my eyes should look like her eyes. So, if you want surgery I am sure he spends time with you, but if you don't want surgery, just a simple removal of a skin tag, he is not your guy.

Had a great experience with Dr. Vijay getting a breast augmentation and lift and tummy tuck and liposuction, all together I think it's called a mommy makeover. His office was great and all the aspects from my first time in the office to my post surgery appointments have been great. I am incredibly satisfied with my results and I strongly recommend him.

Had a breast reduction last fall with Dr. Vijay. Feeling and looking really good. Looking good was important, but with this procedure I needed to feel good/not have pain. Back pain gone, posture amazing, great to get this done. Office and staff and Dr. Vijay were all wonderful.

I had been trying for years to "fix" my gynecomastia on my own. I finally went to see Dr. Vijay and I did not realize until then that I could not have fixed it on my own even with all the working out in the world because it's not fat it's tissue. Dr. Vijay explained everything in a way that made me understand but did not make me feel dumb. I am fully healed and looking great and I have a confidence I never had before. I highly recommend Dr. Vijay.
