The whole process of visits before as well as after my surgery was excellent. Everyone involved, from the staff who work at the desk to the nurses who prepare & look after you as well as Dr Hertess herself of course are all simply wonderful & so professional but warm & friendly too.
My only negative is that after continually stressing that wanted my breasts reduced to specifically a Bcup, but Dr decided that would be too small for me so I am now a Dcup which I still feel are big & are not what I asked for repeatedly, even as I entered surgery. Regardless of my size that was not what I asked & paid for so I am still disappointed with the overall outcome sadly.

I honestly cannot write enough to express how wonderful Dr. Hertess and her team have been. They have changed my life and for the better. I would only trust Dr. Hertess and her team! Everyone has been so supportive, from the administration staff to the nursing staff directly to Dr. Hertess.
I had quite an extensive surgery that went beautifully. I am a healthier and happier woman because of Dr. Hertess and her team. Again it has been one the best decisions of my life!
Thank you Dr. Hertess and team!

I loved everything part of my experience with CPS. From the first appointment they are so professional and caring. My follow up appointments made me feel that I was a person not a number and I cannot thank Allison and Dr Hertess enough. I’m so happy with my results- I have already been telling anyone who will listen who was my Surgeon and awesome Team.

My experience with Dr. Hertess was really great! Everyone in the clinic is so lovely and supportive. I really enjoyed coming into the clinic and they were always happy to answer all my questions. I am stoked about the results, she recommended a size that really suits my body and the healing process was super quick too. I highly recommend Dr. Hertess to anyone. Thank you!
