Dr. Hurwitz is everything you hope for in a cosmetic surgeon. He is a gifted artist. There's no BS with him; he's very straightforward and will tell you what he can and cannot do. I had a face lift three years ago from another doctor and it didn't last. Dr. Hurwitz redid mine and I love it! Dr. Hurwitz' has his own operating room set up in his office; I didn't have to go into the hospital and didn't need a chest x-ray or heart test beforehand since I didn't go under general anesthesia. Two Lorazepan did the trick. The price was perfect - $6,000. He and his staff are very kind and caring. My face and neck look fabulous with a speedy recovery. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a a talented, caring cosmetic surgeon.
The desired result of returning my youthful look was not only achieved but exceeded. The care, treatment and attention, pre and post procedure, by Dr. Hurwitz and his entire staff was optimum, exemplary, and above and beyond expectations, helping me throught the decisioning prcoess and the recovery process. I am thrilled with my new look - a refreshment of the more youthful me! Thrilled with my results!
I cannot believe this is my body! Dr. Hurwitz did amazing work. I came into his office thinking I would get a mommy makeover, but even though he would make more money on that procedure, he shared that I would not need a breast augmentation. I ended up with a Tummy Tuck and lipo. He is a miracle worker. I am so thankful that I had the sense to choose him over any other surgeons in the area!
Dr Hurwitz has helped me in so many ways--he was the only surgeon out of five who could figure out a way to get my large benign tumor out of my head--this was in 2011; because of that excellent result I had the confidence to confess to him that my huge breasts (and weight problem) were causing many burdens for me. We have discussed this many times--he has been very patient with me, and I know I am on the right track because I have a superior plastic surgeon. I cannot think of any other service that he could possibly offer in order to improve a woman's perception of herself. Dr Hurwitz has it all! On top of all that, he is an extremely kind man.
