Surgery is serious business. Dr A and his team provided clear, well thought out information and excellent communications and support. Dr A's work was natural, not pulled, and beyond expectations. I would not trust any other plastic surgeon and am satisfied that the richer fees were well worth it, not just for the result but the peace of mind. Dr A and his staff are all warm, caring and professional. The highest ratings are in order. Only caveat is be aware that the first 3-7 days post op can be challenging but worth the wait.

Dr Adamson is an absolutely phenomenal doc from initial consultation to the final post op meeting. He may be a little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for! He's taken 10 years off my face and given me a new lease on life. His staff is first rate from Nora and Joanne in the front office, to the wonderful nurses post op. Dr Corson who helped assist, is no doubt going to be a fantastic practioner. All in all, I highly recommend Dr Adamson, you won't be disappointed. He's made me so happy!

Dr. Adamson is a wonderful person with a very caring bedside manner. He is a very experienced and knowledgeable doctor. He has done serveral procedures for me over the last 10 years and to the utmost of my satisfaction. I have complete confidence and trust in Dr. Adamson. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for any type of cosmetic surgery. I can't thank Dr. Adamson and his staff enough for everything they have done for me.

Dr. P. Adamson has been chosen by me as my doctor referred me to him. His recommendation impressed me. It happened more then 12 years ago. Since then I'm his patient. I had a SMAS done and still enjoy the result. I've tried all procedures offered in his stylish welcoming office and even consider the second SMAS in a year or two. That always a pleasure to be dealing with the staff. They are highly professional , very friendly and helpful.

I chose Dr. Adamson as a result of a referral; I saw first-hand the outstanding results of the facelift. There was no 'overdone' or pulled look - it was very natural, with a refreshed, improved look for the patient. When I had my surgery, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They were also thorough when it came to explaining the 'before, during, and after' details – what to expect at each stage. They gave me good tips for a speedy recovery. When I see my before and after photos now I am still amazed and it's been a year since my surgery. I am so much happier now when seeing myself in the mirror! Many thanks to Dr. Adamson and his staff. I would have no hesitation in referring anyone to his office.

Dr. Adamson met with my daughter when she was eighteenth over her unhappiness about a very crooked, misshapen nose and her inability to breathe properly. He treated her like an equal and while complimenting her other features, he showed us how he could give her the nose she was meant to be born with. As she was a University student, she was booked right after her last exam of her first term in December. The surgery was extensive and tricky but Dr. Adamson and his team straightened and shaped her nose and repaired the septum. I could not possibly explain how challenging her surgery was, but I was aware that she was in excellent hands of one of the worlds best surgeons and his team. When it is your child you want that assurance and I knew that Dr. Adamson has incredible experience and credentials. The attendants were so kind to my daughter before and after her operation and let me see her right away. Her recovery was not terribly painful and although uncomfortable at first, my daughter was only on painkillers for the evening of the surgery. We stayed in a nearby (affordable) hotel and were able to walk into the clinic the following day to have the packing removed and we made the appropriate follow-up appointments in the weeks to follow. When the bandage was removed just before Christmas I gave my daughter the thumbs up and almost burst into tears of joy for her. From now on she would not sit in a classroom and worry about her profile or feel that boys wouldn't ask her to dance or want to date her. Dr. Adamson and his staff were always so supportive and made us feel welcome during all visits. Dr. Adamson took an interest in my daughter and gave her some important life advise and shared some of his own stories from his University days. Today, a year and a half later, my daughter has a new life and has gained so much confidence. If I shared one memory of Dr. Adamson it would be of him taking time to chat with a very anxious mother (me) after her three hour surgery, and sharing his joy that my daughter would have a better life. It is so true! It was the best money ever spent on my daughter. We visited the staff and Dr. Adamson fourteen months after my daughter's surgery just to show everyone how beautiful the new nose was, then we went out on the town and celebrated. Forever grateful!!! A mom.

Best facelift surgeon in town. I had my first facelift done a few years ago somewhere else but it didn't last. Dr Adamson did such a beautiful job of making me look refreshed without the pulled look. He is a master surgeon and that's evident by the results he delivers. I would not trust my fave to anyone but him. Wonderful staff as well. Maria makes me feel like family every time I go for a visit ( Botox and filled and facials). Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dr Adamson did an amazing job of my forehead lift, upper and lower blephs and facelift. There was a lot to go over during consultation and he was very patient and reassured me we won't proceed with surgery unless I had all my questions answered. Surgery went well and my recovery was a bit tough, but I was well prepared for it by him and his staff. I am ecstatic with my result and don't even wanna look at my old pictures . Thank you for making my life so much more enjoyable.

I chose Dr Adamson as my rhinoplasty surgeon for his international reputation in this surgery. I have to say it's the best decision I have ever made. He really listened to my concerns and reviewed his plan with me in detail on two separate occasions. I was so confident in him, but was scared of surgery and my final result. I am now a few months post surgery and I love my new nose. I know it still has some swelling but I was as to go to a wedding after 4 weeks, and I got so many positive comments but no one knew what I had done. I am really grateful to Dr Adamson and his staff. Maria was really sweet and attentive to all my questions. She seemed to have such a wealth of information and would never get sick of my billion questions. Joanne was really kind and thorough with the instructions. I just can't stop saying good things about my experience. My advice: just go with Dr Adamson, he's the BEST.
