01/05/14 5 5 5 5 I have had my eyes done as well as a mini facelift. I also receive periodic injections in my face. I love my results and think very highly of Dr. Churchill and his staff. They are very professional and highly competent. I highly recommend this doctor!  Respond

14/04/14 2 3 1 1 I had a terrible experience with my facelift. I thought he would do a fine job. Dr. Churchill had done surgery on my eyes, although he did have to do them twice. I was not happy with the outcome after the first surgery, but after he removed more skin from my lid I was happier with it. My facelift is another story altogether. It was clear after the facelift that something had gone terribly wrong. The doctor believed that resurfacing might help. He did do that for me and it did help some. However, I still had a deep crevice on the lower right side of my face which he filled with Juvederm and I am scarred from that. The doctor told me he did not recommend any more surgery. I have a long scar on the left side of my face the goes from my cheekbone nearly to my chin. He cut or nicked my earlobes which changed their appearance, and I have a bald spot on my hairline. I've been very depressed about it for a year and a half. I just got very sick of reading all of these great reviews!  Respond

15/11/12 5 5 5 5 I feel Dr. Churchill did a fantastic job on my facelift and upper and lower blepharplasty. 7 weeks post op and have been told I look great and "something was different. Did I grow my hair longer?". Still a bit swollen in some places but am very happy and satisfied so far. Would recommend Dr. Churchill and his WONDERFUL staff to anyone!  Respond

13/09/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Churchill is a knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. His staff is friendly (and a good advertisement for his work!) He discourages too much plastic surgery and will only agree to do work he thinks you need. Although the recovery from plastic surgery is not 'fun', Dr Churchill and his staff made it easier than it might have been, and it is worth it in the end...finally!

21/08/12 5 4 5 5 Absolutely wo derful. Dr. Churchill is a skilled plastic surgeon who specializes in faces only. He is booked out 4-5 months I advance and does not advertise anywhere. It is strictly word of mouth, and to tell you the truth, the best kept secret in terms of superior and exemplary results. He is compassionate, kind, a great listener, and spends as much time as necessary with his patients. His surgury center receives the highest marks possible. Both of us are thrilled with the results. If you are considering facial surgery, you must get his expert opinion. Quality personified.  Respond

31/10/11 5 5 5 5 I have been to Dr Churchill's office for both surgical and non-surgical procedures. I had a facelift a few years back and now go regularly for various non surgery procedures they offer. He and his staff are true artists! I am always taken for 10-15 years younger than I am and it is a natural look. I LOVE this place!  Respond

24/06/11 5 4 4 4 I went to Dr. Churchill for upper and lower eye lid surgery. I had to have the procedure redone on both eyes because he didn't take enough skin off the first time. But that's okay b/c I didn't want to look like a deer in headlights. I love the fact that I no longer have bags or dark circles. But each eye looks different and I feel lopsided. I'm not sure if anyone else notices but I do and for what I paid, I guess I didn't expect this to happen. You can see the inner part of my upper eyelid on one eye. I'm not going for a third revision b/c I had rough rough recoveries-popped sutures and really swollen and bruised. Would I go back? Probably not. But he's a great person and his staff is the best.  Respond

27/04/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Churchill performed the most beautiful facelift on me a few years ago. I've been seeing him for the past 25 yrs. and wouldn't dream of trusting anyone else. He's a very knowledgeable and warm person, so is his staff.  Respond

09/12/10 4 2 3 1 I had 2 surgery's on my nose. After the first one, I could not breath for 6 months, and my nose was more than half gone and looked distorted and from top to bottom it went in 3 different directions. I had incredible pain, and not to mention next day after surgery, I pulled a piece of bone out of my nose. The surgery toke almost 4 hours, which originally was planned for 90 minutes. The nurse quickly took the bone away. I had a second surgery after 7 months, and it got even worse. I could not even breath. I went in to fix a bump, and came out deformed and could not breath. Long story short I went to Dr. Toriomi in Chicago to fix what Churchill did. Dr. Toriomi said that too much bone was taken off, my nose had collapssed, I had scarring, and the nose was a huge mess. He toke cartiliage out of my ears to compensate. Long story short, after 3 surgeries, I got some of my look back. But I have suffered from breathing problems for over 10 years. Dr. Churchil just paid for my 3rd surgery.

10/09/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Churchill specializes from the neck up. He is known for his natural looking face lifts. I have seen much of his work and it is all beautiful. I had a facelift in Feb. 08 and I am quite pleased. The changes are profound, yet no one guessed that I had work done. People just would say. "Wow, you look great!' The Dr. is down to Earth, and does not push things on you that you don't need or want. He takes the time to explain the procedures and how you will feel afterwords. This office also has "overnight" services where you can stay after your surgery and be taken care of by an RN. It was well worth it, and I took advantage of this service. The staff is professional, and kind.. I always think of Dr. Churchill as the best facial plastic surgeon in the midwest.  Respond

09/04/08 5 4 5 5 This was the friendliest and warmest staff ever -My daughter had a procedure done and Dr. Churchill is by far the nicest doctor she has ever encountered! He took his time with her, answered all of her questions and was so down to earth and wonderful. The staff couldn't wait to see her when she came back for follow-up exams. I would recommend this doctor to anyone!!!!  Respond

16/01/08 5 3 5 5 Maybe something has changed since I had my procedures done few years ago, but I found this doctor very helpfull and non-pushy at all.I had time to look at the pictures and had given choices not only that suited my needs but also the timing.Dr.staff is another story - but then again they get jobs there to get discounts on procedures - and it shows in the attitude toward other - still"ugly" people. But staff is not what I care about - only the results - and they were and still are very good.

01/12/07 1 1 2 1 I was treated rudely by his staff, not to mention that I WAITED, and waited. Then the Dr rushed me, I didn't get to see before/after pics, and told me I was "borderline" for a F/L..but that I'd be happy if I had one. I felt like cattle do when pushed through an assembly line!! I was disappointed in this experience as I had heard good things about this Dr. I certainly didn't have my questions answered. I don't think Drs should book so many patients on one day if there is just not enough time, I won't be back to this Dr!  Respond
