Dr. Artz's Patients Speak: Read the Reviews

Dr. Artz is amazing!! He gave me a level of confidence that I never knew I could have. Unfortunately, after having two previous breast augmentations and a tummy tuck by another surgeon, I had never received the results I wanted. That all changed the day I met Dr. Artz. He is personable, attentive and I appreciate the fact that he listened to my concerns and was honest about what he needed to do to “fix me”. Seven months post-op, my Tummy tuck revision and new breast implants have never looked better! Dr. Artz is very meticulous with his work. When he sees his canvas, he knows exactly how to make it a masterpiece! He exceeded my expectations and Im forever grateful for the time he took with me to give me the results I’d always hoped for!


My experience with Dr.Artz was very pleasant and thorough. He took his time with me and didn’t make me feel rushed when asking questions. My comfort and safety was his top priority pre-op and post-op. It was his bedside manner and calming effect that solidified to me that I was in the BEST hands. I was not the least bit fearful or apprehensive of my lengthy surgery because I knew I was being taken care of by an attentive and talented surgeon. Dr.Artz and the entire surgery team were incredible. He’s not only the best surgeon I have encountered but also one of the BEST people I know. In addition to being a phenomenal surgeon he’s very kind, honest , genuine and a wonderful listener. If you’re in search of a surgeon who’s truly blessed with a gift that can take your vision and make it your reality then Dr.Artz is the right surgeon.


My experience with Dr. Artz was EXCELLENT!!!! He is a master! Dr. Artz is an active listener and answered all of my questions during my consultation; He did not rush the visit either.
I was beyond pleased with my results. I LOVE my inner thighs and I can, for the first time, wear short shorts and skirts. Dr. Artz checked on me repeatedly post op and addressed any concerns or questions but I had no concerns at all as I'm so Ecstatic with my results.
If you are looking for great, jaw dropping results, please use the Master with the great hands, Dr. Artz! Trust me you won't be disappointed in your results or your first consultation with Dr. Artz! He is Amazing!

He’s very knowledgeable about what he is doing. Every concerned I had he was very responsive . Every question I had he had an answer, an assured me everything was going in the right direction. He’s the best hands down…!!!!!


Truly the highest recommended by me. If you are looking for the best, Dr. Arts is it. I delivered an 11lb baby, which resulted a drastic body change. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Arts for my surgery. AMAZING RESULTS!!!! My experience was beyond great. My level of care was outstanding, over and beyond excellent. Very professional and knowledgeable. His passion for what he does is unmatched!


I was admitted to the ER with dog bite on the face. I was blessed that Dr. Artz was the plastic surgeon on call. He made a sound medical decision on how best to move forward to give me the best possible result and still preserve the tissue and muscle I had. He did a spectacular job and the result is miraculous. He is obviously a brilliant surgeon, but equal to skill and expertise is his kindness, compassion, and decency. I cannot say enough good things about him.


I highly recommend Dr. Artz. He was personal, patient and reassuring during my entire time with him. He will give honest, realistic feedback about your expectations. At no time did I feel rushed and my questions were thoroughly answered. I would highly recommend Dr. Artz for anyone interested in plastic surgery!


My mother and I both are patients of Dr. Artz. His passion for plastics and ability to visualize our wants is a no brainer. He is extremely personable and made us feel so comfortable from the most to least invasive procedure. AMAZING


Dr. Artz did the follow-up coverage for my first surgery of skin removal for the arms and breasts and then performed and follow-up coverage for the excess skin removal on my thighs. Dr. Artz was professional but also personable. He willingly answered all my questions and made sure I understood each step of the journey. He went above expectations to work with the insurance company to reverse their denial decision and get a hem to cover the cost of the last surgery. So Grateful to and for him! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great surgeon and person!


Run don’t walk to Dr.Artz. I have seen so many dermatologists over the past decade and just never really felt like Botox was for me. I decided it was time to see a plastics doctor. I took a shot on Dr. Artz and he completely changed my perspective of the product. My face has honestly never looked better. The attention to detail and exact precision of Dr. Artz is pretty impressive. While the work was subtle, it made a huge difference to me and he now has a loyal patient for life.
