Dr. Soares and his staff were amazing. They willingly accommodated my schedule since I live out-of-state, and they were very helpful when circumstances demanded a change to my original surgery date. Dr. Soares was more than willing to take time to explain the procedure and answer any questions I had. He and his team were kind and generous throughout the entire process.

I was impressed with Dr. Soares at our first meeting and every subsequent interaction prior to surgery. He always made sure every possible question I had was answered. I am thrilled with the results and I'm not even close to recovered yet - only 2 1/2 weeks post. I've already recommended Dr. Soares to two other friends!

It would have been a quick visit, but I started feeling sick. And the staff was patient and very kind to me, while I waited to feel better. Very grateful.

I had Restylane Kysse injections to fill out my lips and I couldn’t be happier with the results! They look plump, smooth, and pretty natural. Dr. Soares did an amazing job. I will definitely return for other services!

I cannot stress how happy and satisfied I am after have a breast reduction in November 2020 performed by Dr. Soares. I had suffered all my adulthood with chronic neck and shoulder pain where I had pain daily. Not only was the pain that effected how I felt with having large breast a DD to be exact. But it was also how uncomfortable I felt about my body. I would be embarrassed to wear tight fitted shirts. I was not able to exercise with the comfort level I do now. I just had so many problems caused by my large breast that I had been seriously thinking about having a reduction for years. I finally talked to my pcp about the pain I had on a daily bases and how it was just getting worst. My doctor submitted a referral to Dr. Soares for a consultation and 3 months later I had my surgery. I am now a size C no longer have neck/shoulder or back pain. I feel great in the way I now look and how my breast don’t prevent me from exercise. My recovery was excellent I never experienced pain or complications and my healing was quick. I have minimal scarring which I considered was the least of my worries. I would highly recommend Dr. Soares to my friends and family as I believe he did an excellent work and is a great doctor.

Even though I would benefit greatly by it I was very apprehensive about having my procedure, but Dr Marc Soares and PA-C Diana Guitierrez explained all that was to happen pre-op through post-op. They took very good care of me. I am so happy with the result.

I have been a patient of Dr Julio Soares over the years, and I have never been disappointed. So I was hopeful when he recommended that I meet with Diana Gutierrez regarding the facial discoloration I have due to age and sun exposure. Diana was terrific…based on her recommendation I decided to have the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment along with the Fraxel Laser Treatment. I had three appointments scheduled four to five weeks a part. I couldn’t be more pleased. I wish I had done this years ago. The improvement is amazing – my complexion is greatly improved. Diana really cares. I will definitely be calling Diana again. Thank you, Diana Gutierrez!

Dr. Marc Soares has been awesome throughout my mastectomy and reconstruction due to 2 genetic markers for breast cancer. He is approachable, sympathetic, and most importantly, an excellent surgeon.
