What People Say About Us!
Artesian Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center and Dr. Stanley Castor are fantastic—10/10, highly recommend. As a beauty and wellness enthusiast, I'm familiar with most of the plastic surgeons and medical spas in the U.S. (Miami, LA, NYC, and SF), so I can say with certainty that Dr. Castor and his staff are special. After careful consideration, I decided to see Dr. Castor for Vaser chin/neck lipo, full arm lipo, and a benign cyst removal (from my right bicep). He is not only incredibly knowledgeable about the process, but he’s a lovely, warm, comforting presence to be around. His attention to detail is unparalleled and I appreciate how much he values symmetry and precision. Beyond that, I am consistently impressed by each of the staff members that l've interacted with, and l'm particularly appreciative of their kindness and attention to detail when helping me schedule my appointments and check out. Thank you Artesian Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, Dr. Stanley Castor, and staff for treating my dad, mom, maternal aunt, best friend, and me with the utmost care and consideration for our various cosmetic procedures over the past ~12 years. I always look forward to seeing you all for more fun cosmetic procedures in the future! Big shout out and thank you to: •Michelle - PA in operation (for being the stand in mother you need during pre op anxiety) •Darrell - anesthesiologist (you’re so comforting and lovely) •Amy - QWO cellulite injections (you’re an angel from heaven) •Danielle - PA in operation •Nikki - patient coordinator •All front desk staff Irrevocably in love with you all. Grateful to have had the privilege to meet and be treated by this team. Warm regards, Tayler Hickey
