It was a big step for me to have any surgery especially something cosmetic. I wish I did not wait so long to actually have the surgery as it changed my life in such a positive manner. My results look so natural that no one even could tell I had anything done (my family has no idea). A sincere special thanks to Amanda & Dr. Hochstein. You both are so professional and have always made me feel comfortable every single time I stepped into the office or called/emailed questions.
Forever greatful for dr Hochstein. He changed my life for the better and exceeded far from what I could imagine. He's very passionate about what he does and is honest and I appreciated that. staff was kind and friendly too and their patient coordinator and nurses in recovery made me feel comfortable and safe.
I traveled al the way from Pennsylvania and had a lift with dr Hochstein. I was a bit worried about leaving home to have surgery but so glad I did. My breast look fantastic and my surgery went so smooth. Amanda explained everything in full detail and was there for me every step of the way.
Can't wait for bikini season now!!
I traveled to see Dr. Hochstien and I could not have had a better experience. Every single person that worked w/ me at his amazing facility was fantastic. He is the best, he was so patient, on time, warm & professional. My breasts look dynamite! I also have to mention how wonderful the concierge service that he uses was.
Dr. Hochstein and his staff are amazing!!! I am an out of ton patient from Canada. Dr. Hochstein performed a BA and a lift. My results are amazing!! He truly is the boob god! He is very professional, he has a wonderful bedside manner. If you are looking for a Doctor that cares about his patients and not about money then this is the right one. He surpassed all my expectations, I will be booking with him in the near future for a rhinoplasty and I know that it will be awesome! Thank you Dr. Hochstein and Staff!
I was an out of town patient who used Dr. Hochstein last year for a breast augmentation and I must say it was the best experience you could have. Jennifer Hyde who works specifically with the out of town patients is amazing, she is always available by phone or email for any questions. I spoke with dr Hochstein over the phone for a consultation and booked with him the next day. Two days before my surgery I flew into town and met in the office. I never had a wait time and was never rushed. My surgery was first thing in the morning and the nurses were great. I had absolutely no complications and am extremely happy with my results, they are flawless. Many of my friends now come here and have had the same great results.
The WORST consult I've EVER had! I've never met a more arrogant doctor. He did not even take the time to explain the procedure........then he went on to make derogatory comments about other procedures that I'd already had. I had tears in my eyes when I left his office! I would not recommended him to anyone! There are plenty of GREAT doctors out there with more talent, and compassion! This one is a phony! AND they made me wait 45 minutes even after they called and asked me to be there early! Next!

If you come in for a consultation with breasts that hang down very low and you want the sag to be "fixed" but are not willing to have any scars whatsoever do not expect the consultation to go well. I will not be rude but I will simply say that "I cannot help you" or simply "I do not believe I am the surgeon for you" which is exactly what I did. I imagine that I could have discussed why a lift is necessary and the principles of reshaping breasts but when someone tells me they are categorically opposed to a lift and would not listen to my professional recommendations from the very beginning. After the consultation I politely asked, like I always do, if there are any questions. I was surprised to be asked about what I thought about some illegally injected facial filler which had distorted the anatomy to an abnormal size and shape. I gave my honest impression and the reason, simply, is that people do not come in for me to be polite but rather to be honest. I would never criticize something unless I am asked about it first. I was not trying to offend anyone and even suggested possible surgeries that might help in correcting the deformity. I finally ended the consultation when this person suggested that a reasonable treatment could be to add more filler. At this point I extended my hand to say good bye and simply said " I am sorry I could not help you". There is nothing "phony" about me. On the contrary I will always be honest. I always have and always will. I am sure this will rub people the wrong way on occasion but I believe that nearly all of my patients appreciate it. I am also not unsympathetic to this person's plight. She has had some terrible experiences with prior procedures and I would have liked to help but was never given the opportunity to discuss the surgeries that would have worked.

Waited over 2 hours for my surgery (from the time they booked me). Once te surgery was done, I felt rushed out of there (seemed like they were behind schedule). To top it off, VERY unhappy with results (breast aug).

Occasionally surgeries take longer than expected. This can occur for various reasons such as an unexpected finding or requiring a more complex operation. I will never rush through an operation to stay on schedule but rather will keep working until I am satisfied with the result. In these situations we always call the next patients to keep them updated, which it sounds like we did here, and apologize but explain the circumstances. Fortunately these situations happen rarely and I cannot remember ever being 2 hours behind. Our recovery room discharge protocol does not change and every patient has to pass certain requirements to be discharged. We have 5 beds in our recovery room so the schedule has no bearing on a discharge. If needed we could keep patients here all day and it would make no difference to the schedule. Breast augmentation is our most common surgery and something we do 1300 times per year with a satisfaction rate of over 99% but clearly there are some patients that are unhappy with their surgeries but I certainly did not get to this success in my career by having unhappy patients.
