Our patients left these reviews on RealSelf:

“Dr. Cannova is a true compassionate and caring doctor. I have felt like I was in good hands from day one, and I always knew that he would be my surgeon of choice after I had lap band surgery. He has lived up to his reputation for being meticulous about his work. I am extremely grateful and humbled to be able to feel like a proportionate woman for once in my life. The staff was great, Dr. Rast was fantastic as well as he followed up with me before I left the hospital. Two big thumbs up to Dr. Cannova and his team!”


“Dr. Young came highly recommend. I have had several trusted friends and family members use her. We connected right away during my 2-hour consultation. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I felt very comfortable with her and her nurses. She explained all options to me thoroughly and gave her experienced suggestions for my specific body type and for the look I wanted. I valued her input, but she encouraged me to make my own decisions.”

See what our patients have to say:

“I have had numerous biopsies and skin treatments for 20 years from Dr. Nahid Shahrooz, having no issues after any procedure done by her. Tried another doctor when Dr. Shahrooz relocated to Leawood, Kansas. Both the surgery and freezing sites from the new doctor became infected. I now drive from Indianapolis to Leawood, Kansas to see Dr. Shahrooz. She is very passionate about her patients and their care. Communication with her and her nurse are very commendable.”

“Dr. McClung performed laser resurfacing to remove acne scars, and I am very pleased with the results.  As a teenager, my acne was treated with x-ray treatments (a procedure no longer done) which can make skin more susceptible to injury from laser surgery.  Dr. McClung adjusted the amount of laser treatment I received to an appropriate level that resulted in removing the acne scars and leaving a smooth, scar-free complexion.” 

We offer consultations with our doctors so you can freely discuss any questions or concerns that you have. If you are ready to take that step into a new and more confident you or you would just like more information to help you make your decision, please contact our office today!
