They were ready to see me when I showed up for my appointment. I never had to wait for them to show up. They always go above and beyond to help me with anything I need. They never complain about anything, and I know I can always count on them. I am beyond happy with my results. They turned out far better than I could have ever hoped for.

I was so happy with how my surgery turned out that I told everyone I know how great they were. Anytime I hear that someone is looking for a cosmetic surgeon, I recommend them. They've never pressured me to get any enhancements that I didn't need or wasn't interested in. They're always very respectful. Everything they told me in the beginning ended up turning out exactly the way they said it would. They were able to provide me everything they promised me. I've never doubted their abilities.

I was born with retinoblastoma eye cancer. I first saw Dr. Carraway in 1982, I had my infected eye removed. I was 14 months old, He gave me the ability to live my life as a normal child and adult. He did numerous surgerys on my eye socket to help me look normal. I continued to see him for years to come. He was my favorite doctor and I had many. He is a special man and I feel blessed that he helped me. Thank you doctor Carraway, Melissa
