23/03/13 5 5 5 5 Really great doctor & wonderful staff. Make you feel comfortable in the most uncomfortable/scary situations. Super attentive. Consulted with other plastic surgeons before I chose him. Flew out to see him. He took the time to sit with me, explain everything, answer every question. Knows his stuff - did a great job. Staff is super nice and helpful. Couldn't be happier - highly recommended!!  Respond

13/03/13 1 1 1 1 When I called the office I was told that the cost would be $225 just for the consultation! I found a coupon that clearly states "complimentary 1 hour consultation on any procedure", but was told they wouldn't honor it since I needed to schedule a revision not a primary consultation... the only exclusions listed on the coupon are "one per person" and "not valid with any other offer"... Sadly, the receptionist is not customer service focused and was extremely rude while I maintained a professional and polite demeanor. Additionally, it speaks volumes about Dr. Placik's lack of integrity since he wouldn't honor the consultation coupon when this situation was escalated to him.  See Responses

24/09/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Placik is truly a gem. I have had multiple procedures with him and would recommend him to anyone seeking a procedure - whether it be lipo to botox. He actually cares about his patients and really listens. He never rushes and makes sure that every single question you may have is answered. From consult to procedure to follow-up, Dr. Placik gets an A++ in my book. His staff is also top notch and nothing but professional. Additionally, the anesthesiologists that he works with are incredible. They made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Additionally, he is in no way pushy - actually the opposite. He will tell you if he does not think what you desire is necessary and that is a very great quality because it shows his true care about the well-being of his patients.

28/04/10 5 5 5 5 From the consulation to the post-op appointments, my experience with Dr. Placik was absolutely amazing!! I had the "mommy makeover" and the results are better than I could have imagined. Dr. Placik not only restored my body but actually made it better than my pre-pregnancy body. This coming from a woman who has always been in great shape, til pregnancy took it's toll. Dr. Placik is truly an expert of cosmetic surgery and he is very thorough. He is very skilled and it shows in his work. His staff, especially Sarah and Sherri, are wonderful as well! Thank you Dr. Placik and staff for your excellent work!  Respond

30/03/10 5 4 5 5 I just had a tummy tuck three weeks ago and absolutely love Dr Placik. His whole staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. Dr. Placik definitely knows what he is doing and I am thrilled with my choice to have him as my surgeon. I went to two other surgeons and after I walked out of his office consult, I knew he was the right doc for me. He took the time to answer all my questions, and there is not one thing I experienced that he and his staff didn't tell me about. Would easily go back to him if I ever need more plastic surgery and will definitely recommend him!!!  Respond

10/12/09 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Placik in October for implant removal, breast lift and aerolar reduction. He did an excellent job. He was very professional and really took time to tell me my options and was very concerned about the outcome of the surgery. My breasts are healed and they have never looked better.  Respond

07/07/09 4 2 2 2 1. Dr. Placik should really spend more time with patients 2. In my opinion NOT a skillful sculptor of the body. 3. He should really learn his patients body, skin type, and while in the operating room...do his job currect the 1st time. 4. Overall i am unhappy with my Aug. procedure and even more so that when i followed up w/ him he did not take care of the lack of work / errors that HE made and instead leaving me a message that it would cost me 4K more to have procedure just 6mo. later. (One breast falls out of the rib cage, leaving a sinking hole in chest, and falls much lower than the opposite side) (Also, i have thinner skin on my chest that so much rippling can be seen) Originally i found his name and recommendation on 800 doctors...having been told by his office and service that it was not paid advertising that suggested that he was the best in the area. When however, after my procedure i looked into it further and was told he paid for such advertising. i was mislead!  Respond

14/06/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Placik is an absolutely exceptional surgeon. He is understanding, compassionate, attentive, brilliant, honest, and above all, has earned the respect and confidence of his peers, staff and patients. His entire staff is wonderful. My ratings and comments are a result of being a current patient. I was referred to him by one of my doctors and I researched everything I could about him. I literally carried his number with me for 2 years before I made the initial appointment. Once I had my preliminary consultation I was convinced that I had the made the right decision. One surgery later, he didn't prove me wrong - HE IS THE BEST. Not only is he an artist, but the most kindhearted doctor I have met. Any surgery is a risk, however, plastic surgery is elective. So we elect to put ourselves in the best hands possible. I strongly urge anyone that is interested or just thinking about cosmetic surgery - contact Dr. Placik - you will be thankful you did.  Respond

15/10/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Placik recently did my upper eyelids, and I could not be more pleased with the results. My results far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Placik is not only an excellent surgeon, but very kind, caring, and extremely knowledgeable. I will most definitely return to Dr. Placik in the near future for another procedure I would like to do. Dr. Placik's office staff is wonderful, too.  Respond

13/05/08 5 3 5 5 I have seen Dr. Placik for an abdominoplasty consult. I have seen two other plastic surgeon and Dr. Placik was the most knowledgeable, sincere, and the most honest among the three. He even took time out of his busy schedule to answer all my questions and concerns. His staff also made me very comfortable and treated me as person (as one of them) and not just "another patient". I am very thankful to have met Dr. Placik. JG  Respond

09/05/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Placik is a board certified surgeon in plastic surgery. He received his degree at Northwestern University. I read about him in a book called Consumers Checkbook.I was also given his name by a friend of mine who went to him and loved him! I was scheduled with another surgeon for surgery for breast augmentation. After I met Dr. Placik my mind was made up, he was going to be my surgeon! He was so personable, nice and explained everything in so much detail. He was the only doctor I saw who spent this much time with me(mostof them averaged about 10 minutes). He spent over an hour with me. The entire experience was awesome!
