14/01/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Greenberg and her staff were fantastic. I had a breast augmentation done and from day 1, she was informative, detailed, answered all my questions and gave me pros and cons on my choices. She was never pushy, just straight forward. She was very helpful during the healing process, always responding to any frantic calls and emails within the same day. I am very happy with the way my breasts turned out and would definitely recommend her to my friends.

17/10/12 5 5 5 5 I searched and interviewed doctors all over the bay area to do a cosmetic procedure on my face. After meeting with all the doctors, I chose Dr. Lauren Greenberg. I completely trust her. I met with Dr. Greenberg more than once and she was always professional, available, up to date, scientifically current and most importantly wanted to know my opinions about what I wanted to accomplish -- never hurried. Isn't that what you want from a cosmetic surgeon? She is super kind and just plain sweet. Dr. Greenberg is an artist. I never felt hurried and she had great ideas and opinions about state of the art surgery, the biology of healing and cosmetic repair gadgets. Her office assistant, Justine, is the sweetest too. Extremely cordial practice. I will be a repeat customer for Dr. Greenberg and really happy and lucky to have met this artist who happens to be a fantastic cosmetic surgeon. WooHoo!  Respond

12/09/12 4 5 5 5 My husband and I were impressed with Dr. Greenberg from the Consultation to the end result. My eyes are now open and look very youthful and rested. No bruising! Thank you Dr. Greenberg! Great bedside manner and even better results! My emails and phones calls were always answered within 24 hours. I could not have asked for a better experience.  Respond

17/07/12 5 5 5 5 LOVE HER!! Been going to her for my cosmetic "mid life" facial filler upgrades. She cares for her patients, is very knowledgeable and really fun during visits! She's wonderful! She always makes sure everthing looks totally natural which is important to me (and I think her too). I'm very, very happy with her and highly recommend Dr. Greenberg.

06/07/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Greenberg is a fantastic surgeon and I have never had a more positive experience with a doctor. She is caring, kind, and keeps up on the latest information in her field. I went to her after losing 190 pounds and she has done a wonderful job at removing all the wrinkles caused by my weight loss. Within the past year she completed a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, and 2 weeks ago, a face lift. She is honest, direct, and kind. She answers all my questions and has always given me the full information I needed to make the right decisions for my body. She is not someone who encourages more surgery to enrich herself. My phone calls have always been returned within minutes. Best of all, she did a great job with each surgery and I am so happy with how I look now.  Respond

11/06/12 5 5 5 5 I had a very good experience with a tummy tuck and lipo. She had me postpone it since I wanted to loose weight. I never did. But I look great now, thanks to her careful eye. I did not think I needed lipo on my inner thighs, she disagreed, and I am happy she did. It was my first experience with plastic surgery and if I choose to do any " upkeep" i will contact Dr. Greenberg again  Respond

24/02/12 5 5 5 5 My whole experience with Dr. Greenberg was awesome. I was nervous about getting a breast augmentation and I felt totally at ease in her skilled hands. She listened to what I wanted and executed it perfectly! Only my closest friends noticed that I had anything done! I look completely natural and couldn't be happier! Thanks!  Respond

07/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Greenberg is amazing. She did an abdominoplasty on me and lipo. She was incredibly detailed with me before the operation, has answered every question, responds to email, is prompt to my appointments, etc. She is very honest and will tell me when she thinks something doesn't make sense. She is an excellent surgeon and I am so happy with my results. I also love her bedside manner.

06/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Greenberg performed breast reconstruction surgery for me 18 months ago. I am very happy with the results. I will continue to use Dr. Greenberg over the coming years for my age defying needs. I highly recommend her and would not trust any other plastic surgeon for my needs.

06/05/11 5 5 5 5 I discovered Dr. Greenberg five years ago, when interviewing surgeons to do my breast implants. I liked her immediately. Warm and informal, honest and forthright, and so very knowledgeable. I can tell you now, having had those beautiful breasts for five years now, that she is skillful as well. In the last few years, I have also gone to Dr. Greenberg for Botox and fillers, and for blue peels. I can tell you that her eye is careful, her work flawless. My skin looks better than it ever has before. And no one knows I am doing anything! It all looks so natural. I know too that I can trust her to give me an honest opinion. She won't try to sell me on procedures I don't need, as some doctors will. (I've had experience with that, unfortunately.) I value that. At this point, I wouldn't let anyone else near my face. Dr. Greenberg's work is perfect.  Respond

19/11/08 5 4 5 5 dr. greenberg is a wonderful doctor. I had a breast augmentation done by her and could not be happier with my results!!! She's very blunt with the healing process and I felt very comfortable in her care. I get so many compliments on my breast. They look and feel so real!!!  Respond

06/08/07 3 3 1 1 She removed a cancer that was on my face. She said not top worry about it, because there would be no scarring. Instead she defaced me. Everyday I look into the mirror I think of her poor skills. It's been five years now, and I'm still angry.  Respond

28/11/06 4 5 5 Dr. Greenberg is very self assured and rightfully so. She fixed a botched liposuction job that another local plastic surgeon did. She really helped my result and I feel that she made me feel comfortable with my body. I appreciate her work and her honesty with what result I should expect.

01/11/06 4 1 3 Dr. Greenberg seems knowledgeable when you talk to her about procedures, but she doesn't have the patience to discuss in detail. She glossed over some of my questions and dismissed concerns. But the real problem was in the result. My liposuction had a lot of flaws, some bordering on serious and obvious. And, like some others, I found her to be obstinate in her denial that her work was unsatisfactory; and she insisted that all her other patients have been thrilled with her work. Thanks to this site I can see that is not the case!  Respond

27/06/06 4 1 1 This was one of my bigger mistakes in life. She just does not have enough experiences to back up all her big talk about herself. My results were very unsatisfactory and she would not entertain any discussion about it. No willingness on her part to fix things and no advice as to where I could go to get things fixed. That was it.  Respond
