“The receptionist is wonderful and a great ego booster. She always finds something to compliment you on and makes you feel very welcome. The patient coordinator took her time to explain the entire process so anyone could understand. I cannot say enough about the surgical nurse and staff and how great they were. Then there is Dr. Rechner. Only one word for him, which is awesome. I had an augmentation and eyelid lift. Both have made me feel pretty, younger and more confident.” *- Eyelid Surgery Patient, Dr. Rechner
