Terrific experience and better than anticipated results. Dr Persons is a delightful professional and extraordinarily skilled. Peggy was amazing, as well, with a capable eye and honed skill. Super experience overall with a support staff who delivered that extra engaging and personal touch.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr Persons and her staff. I’ve had a brow lift, and upper eyelid “tuck”. As well as fillers on a regular basis. I’m always thrilled with the results. They are really knowledgeable and thoughtful in their approach. They give great advice and recommendations when you don’t know what to do, to get the results your looking for. They always explain the procedure, and pricing. Not only is Dr Persons talented, she (and her staff) are so warm, and welcoming. I have absolute trust in them. My face officially belongs to them 🙂

Dr. Persons, Jennie and Brittany took incredible care of me before and after my breast augmentation. Dr. Persons exceeded my expectations and she is truly an artist in her work. She listened carefully to what I wanted during my consultation and I couldn’t be happier with my results. I’m so grateful for Dr. Persons and her caring, professional team. I highly recommend Persons Plastic Surgery! Thank you all!

My appointment was for botox with Dr. Persons. While I have been to this practice before for other procedures, this was my first time meeting Dr. Persons. She was not only lovely, but personable, honest, calm, confident, knowledgeable and obviously skilled. She explained every step and was truthful about expected outcome. She listened carefully to my concerns and goal of treatment. I did not feel pressured into any additional services. After speaking with Dr. Persons, I decided to also have under eye filler. She graciously made time to do it on the same appointment. I’ve had under eye filler in the past with another provider elsewhere and it was a very poor experience and outcome. I was therefore very anxious to attempt again. Dr. Persons’ calm nature, obvious expertise and skill were extremely reassuring. I greatly appreciated her honesty regarding expected outcome, and further, she did not pressure me into any additional services. She was incredibly patient, skilled, professional and kind. She clearly explained the procedure, product to use, and was honest about expected outcome. I would definitely recommend her and this clinic to anyone looking for a professional, skilled and honest provider. Price for service excellent.

I can’t say enough amazing things about Dr. Persons and her entire team. Every step of the way I felt wholly understood and taken care of. I had a breast reduction and lift done and couldn’t be more happy with how things are progressing. I want to say a special thank you to Jennie who has checked up on me through your this entire process even coming to my home, on a holiday nonetheless, to check on me. Thank you all so much for everything.

Caring and competent staff. Thorough assessment and concern for personal comfort. Dr Persons evaluates what options are best suited to make desired improvements in skin condition and rejuvenation. A sincerely personable physician who doesn’t attempt to upgrade to more invasive procedures. Her assistants reflect the same attitude and care.

I went to Dr Persons for a scar revision/ excision of dog ears. I am beyond happy with the results! She did such an excellent job! Her and her staff were all so attentive and amazing! They got me in ASAP and she just took so much care and pride in trying to give me the best results. I truly feel so much more confident now! I still haven’t even healed, but it’s already looking great! Once it heals, it’s going to look better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you doctor for giving me back my confidence!
