"I had a double mastectomy and though I'm not done with my journey I have to say.... I could not have found a more compassionate and skilled Doctor than Dr Urbaniak. The office and medical staff are exceptional in all aspects of customer service as well and are caring and so friendly. With all the weight on my shoulders I feel so grateful to have them on my "team". When "all this" is behind me, I think I'll go back to him for a neck lift :)"
"After getting several "breast-imates" a friend urged me to see Dr. Urbaniak. She loved his work and thought I would too. I am so glad I did! He was the only doctor to suggest some additional work that would ultimately create better results. His estimate turned out to be more affordable than the others AND he was so much friendlier. I am beyond satisified with Dr. Roderick Urbaniak and the care his staff gave me. They made every appointment pleasant and quick. AND I LOVE the results of my surgery!! I can't wait to go back and see him again for the follow up. Dr. Urbaniak is a gem!"
"tummy tuck with muscle repair, a breast lift and lipo - Feeling like a million bucks at age 52! - I ask myself the question "Why did I wait so long to do this? " Should have done this years ago! The results are amazing! I am about 2 months post-op and feeling like a million bucks at age 52! I had a tummy tuck with muscle repair, a breast lift (no implants!) and lipo in the surrounding areas. Dr Urbaniak and his staff were amazing from beginning to end. From the ladies at the front desk, to Hannah who walked me through every step of the way to Eva, who I wish I could have with me at all times as my personal assistant post-op, to Dr. Urbaniak who is truly an artist. I couldn't have chosen a better practice. They stayed in constant contact with me throughout and I am healing beautifully!"
"Dr. Urbaniak and his entire staff are wonderful and professional. I would highly recommend him. He did a fabulous job with my breast reconstruction after a mastectomy."
"If I could give 6 stars I would not only to Dr Urbaniak, but his entire staff including where we had a surgery at the plastic surgery facility. The website states they pride themselves on providing each and every one of their patients with personalized care. That is such a truthful statement. Besides getting top quality care with a difficult surgery, I felt totally comfortable I was in the "best hands" possible. When I walked in the office I was greeted like a family member and even after a 2 year absence, I was greeted the same way. The Dr's and staff take all your cares away and you'll "feel that" while in the office. I've also tried the skin care they offer and I loved it. I'm in my 70's and my skin felt soft, dewey and fine lines vanished. This clinic will take care of you and your well being with the highest regard for your personal care."
