Well, i'm back to write my 2nd review for my 2nd procedure I had done at Pacific Lipo. Again, Rod and the staff (Stefani, Becky, Leticia & the rest!) at PL are amazing!! They are all very attentive, caring and are with you every step of the way. They are available after hours (after you've had surgery) with a direct number to Rod in case you have any questions or concerns and the girls are always available during office hours if you need to call in.My 2nd area (which had way more fat than my 1st) is coming around nicely. Rod had advised me that with the amount of fat that was there, there would be more swelling and a little bit longer healing time. No worries, I'm patient because I know the end result will be good. While I'm still in the healing phase, I must say I already see a difference. I make sure to follow all of Rod's instructions in between appointments to make sure that I'm properly taking care of the area and massaging as much as I need to get the best possible results. I'm thrilled with my progress and I can't wait until the area is fully healed. The procedure itself, again, was minimal in regards to discomfort, the first couple of weeks I was tender and a little sore, but that is to be expected. Nothing major though, I was still able to go to work (I have a desk job) and do my daily usual things with the exception of any exercise per Rods directions. All in all, I'm thrilled and ready for my next procedure at PL - I'm just waiting for Rod to give me the green light!!PL is the place to go not only for great results, but for honest advice and a staff that really cares for their patients. :)
Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry
Initially, Dr. Styrt's outstanding credentials and referrals from patients drew me to his office. Once my husband and I met him, we were quite impressed with his desire to not only straighten our children's teeth, but to correct their bites and jawlines as well. Dr Styrt was as focused on their beautiful smiles as he was on correcting their alignment to avoid any future problems. There's much more to orthodontia than just straightening teeth. In the past several years, we have seen our children through expanders, braces, retainers and a number of other appliances. Throughout this experience, Dr. Styrt and his terrific staff clearly communicated with our children and with us about their progress. Another important factor to consider is his respect of his patient's (and their parents) time. We have NEVER had to wait more than 5 minutes when we have arrived on time for our appointment. His staff has always been friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating when we have had a scheduling conflict - they definitely go the extra mile. I couldn't more highly recommend Dr Styrt for his technical skill, his communication with patients/parents and his choice of qualified, capable and caring staff to work alongside him.
Dr. Perlich and her team made one of the BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCES I've ever had! For starters, I hate going to the dentist- it can be expensive, scary, painful etc... but none of that was the case with my recent visit. Everybody was very friendly and warm (the girl who first checked me in (sorry, I forgot your name), Amy who got me started (dental hygienist??- took my xrays), and Dr. Perlich herslef. The facility is beautiful, the equipment high tech and everything is created to make it a nice experience (they even have coffee and tea etc. while you wait).Dr. Perlich herself was amazing- friendly, gentle and thorough, explaining everything as we went along (I'm the type who likes to know everything), and put me at ease about everything. She told me about new options I'd not heard of ('been to several other dentists) to make my fighting-middle-age-self's teeth stronger and prettier, plus, gave me options I could live with to improve my dental health (instead of things like "never eat candy or drink coffee again" type advice that I just wouldn't really follow... I HIGHLY recommend her and her staff- thanks to the Dr. Perlich team for making my visit a great one!
I came to Pacific Lipo after my appointment with a different practice had been canceled. On very short notice they did all they could to squeeze me in on the schedule. The staff was more than friendly and extremely helpful. The office was very professional. I finally made my way to my visit and was pleasantly suprised with the honesty and genuine care exhibited by the medical director, Rod. He advised me that my situation was not best suited for lipo. I was paid in full and ready to go, but his honest opinion stopped me from making what could have been a huge mistake. No other doctor cared enough to keep it real with me. I was a little sad and disappointed that I couldn't move forward with a nip and sip, but I'm glad things worked out the way they did. I would definitely recommend Rod, Stephanie, Letty, Becky and the whole practice to anyone considering having lipo done! :)
Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry
I was so impressed with the care and treatment that Dr. Styrt and his staff have given our son and daughter with their orthodontia (and children's dentistry) that I decided, at age 53, to finally get my teeth straighted as well. During the past two years, I've been extremely happy with all aspects of my treatment. Dr. Stryt and his staff have been very professional and supportive during this process. I've never had to wait for any of my appointments and his front-desk staff have been very helpful when I've had to make last minute changes. Technically, Dr. Stryt has performed a "minor miracle" in widening my crowded mouth, correcting my bite, straightening my teeth and even "sanding" the bottom ones down a bit to give them a more even-looking appearance. In conclusion, I highly recommend Dr. Styrt and his team to anyone considering orthodontic treatment.
My surgery was performed by Dr. Kincaid in June 2011. In preparation for that day, I interviewed several board certified surgeons who were well credentialed, and who possessed the confidence of the peers as well as their patients but in addition to that, Dr. Kincaid impressed me with his approach: not one of boasting how young I would look - but repeatedly suggesting that he could bring a freshness to my face and suggested that after surgery, I would smile again when I looked at my reflection. During and after the procedure, Dr. Kincaid and his incredible staff were solicitous of my comfort and safety and those with an experiential point of view detailed what to expect so that I was never left to wonder if I was healing properly. I have recommended Dr. Kincaid’s team of professionals as the most skilled, empathetic, and kind one could possibly find.
