"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."
"Thank you so much Dr. Petroff. From the moment I walked into the Petroff Center I was so very completely taken care of by experienced, friendly, and competent staff. I found Dr. Petroff to be a very talented and brilliant plastic surgeon. The facelift I received made my kids say “Mom! You look 30 years younger!” (slight exaggeration). I received the best care and from the best doctor ever! Dr. Mark Petroff is a perfectionist. I look amazing and feel wonderful after only two weeks post surgery! The face and neck lift look very natural. Examples: Turkey neck – gone, I can feel my trachea; pixie ear gone, he gave me ear lobes; my high cheek bones are back along with my happy smile. After interviewing a number of surgeons Dr. Petroff was the only facial plastic surgeon would make an incision hidden inside the hairline. I was out in the public within four days when I was able to have dinner at a restaurant with my son. He listened to my concerns and preformed a scar revision from work left by another doctor years ago. I am so grateful to another plastic surgeon who recommended Dr. Petroff. He told me that Dr. Petroff is the best at facial surgery and would send his mother to him for a facelift. I took his advice and I am so thankful I did. Oh, and by the way, it was not that painful at all, just a bit uncomfortable. Go for it!"
"I can’t speak highly enough about Dr Petroff and his staff. I started visiting the center years ago for facials, chemical peels and laser treatments. I was always completely amazed and how amazing the staff was, and how much my skin improved. I had always hoped to one day fix my crooked nose. There was no doubt in my mind Dr Petroff would be the surgeon for me, after seeing his amazing work on my family and friends. I had a rhinoplasty done a little over a year and a half ago... and to this day I’m still in complete awe of his work. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect nose for my face. My nose was unique but Dr Petroff was able to transform it. I am forever thankful to Dr Petroff, and his amazing staff who has always made me feel comfortable and welcomed."
"I had rhinoplasty with Dr Petroff in the summer of 2005. This many years on I can attest to the quality of his skill. Completely natural looking and absolutely improved my life."
"Dr. Petroff and his team are very professional, deliver excellent results and most importantly show great care. I highly recommend Dr. Petroff for his expertise and desire to support his patients in the best possible way. "
