Patient Reviews

Kind Service, Great Result


I had a great experience with Dr. Nadal. He was very informative about the procedure and realistic about what to expect after surgery. I had a follow up visit the day after my surgery and his office has been very diligent in following up with me since. I am very happy with the results of my surgery.

Saline Implant


As a surgeon, Dr. Nadal was able to provide me with a full background on breast augmentation, and what my possible options were (silicone or saline, and size appropriateness). He was able to give me an unbiased opinion on the different approaches to treatment, informing me on all their pros and cons, and their respective recovery. When it came to the procedure (I chose saline implants), Dr. Nadal treated me with the utmost care and professionalism. He took all the necessary precautions to guarantee a successful surgery. All in all I am very happy with my results and would definitely refer any relative or friend considering cosmetic surgery.
