Reviews and Comments From Our Patients

FTC Disclosure: No consideration of any sort has been extended in return for these unsolicited testimonials.

I wanted to thank you for doing such a great job and your staff for being so kind and efficient. I got everything that I wanted out of the surgery. Life is now easier. I can have my allergies and still look decent, take less time to get ready in the mornings and look better yet. I am so pleased with the results.

-- Dr. M.H., Associate Professor (Health Sciences), USC, Los Angeles



Six months ago I was frustrated by having no options, not to mention that I was confused and scared by the different analyses I received from many doctors. I had to literally travel half way across the world to do the surgery with you which my family thought was absurd, but in the end it was worth it. I could not be more pleased.

-- Robert W., Jakarta, Indonesia
(after revision of complications from eyelid surgery performed elsewhere)



I am SO PLEASED with the results. No more puffiness! XOXO

-- Fashion model, Brooklyn, New York



I want to thank you and your staff for my new eyes. Last night when I viewed my before and after photos, I thought the 'before' was like the aftermath of dropping an atomic bomb and the 'after' was like the Firebird.

-- Beatriz, Pharmacologist, Valencia, Spain
(after correction of eyelid collapse after surgery performed elsewhere)



Those bags under my eyes drove me crazy for years. They seemed to be the only thing I saw when I looked in the mirror. But I didn't have the courage to do anything about them until I met with you. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results.

-- T.C., Bellevue, Washington



I had a dilemma in selecting an eyelid surgeon: I was afraid of having my eyes "overdone," but I also wanted them to look "younger." After extensive research, including a number of consultations in the Bay Area, only Dr. Meronk's unique approach and detail orientation satisfied me. The trip to Oxnard was well-worth it: he did a beautiful job.

-- L.M., Entertainer, San Francisco



I don't think I could ever express my gratitude to you for drastically altering my life in such a positive way. I never dared to think it was remotely possible to have the result I have now, as it has exceeded all my expectations. Most of all, thank you, Dr. Meronk, for being a consummate professional, a compassionate doctor, and a brilliant surgeon. I will never forget what you've done for me.

-- Won Kyong Kim, New York, New York
(after revision of unsatisfactory eyelid surgery performed elsewhere)



I thank you for doing such a great job with my eyelids and for being so patient with me. What a good result! This is really great.

-- Helen, Nelson, New Zealand



The work you did looks amazing. I thank you for doing something I didn't think was possible for me in my lifetime.

-- Theo Swensen, Businessman, Las Vegas, Nevada



I can't tell you how good it feels to look in the mirror and see my new eyes.

-- Mark Elwood, Retail Marketing, Seattle, Washington



I want to thank you deeply for helping me. I got a part of myself back thanks to you. My life is turning better, my days are brighter.

-- Ann, The Netherlands
(after treatment for post-blepharoplasty hollowness)



I trust I am not your only patient who is 200% pleased with her results. My eyes are exactly as I had hoped - mine, just less tired. My sincerest thanks.

-- A. D., Nutritionist, Santa Monica



I was absolutely delighted by the professional, informed and caring service you and your team provided from the moment I first contacted you to the moment of discharge. Every imaginable question or eventuality was covered by a wealth of honest, realistic and clear information. I felt in very safe hands and assured that I was dealing with the most advanced and specialised surgeon in this field.

Since returning to the UK, a number of people have said I look less tired and my eye bags seem to have "mysteriously" disappeared. I couldn't be more pleased.

-- Jane Moore, London



I personally thought the whole procedure was a cake walk. I never took one pain pill. The itching may drive you crazy but if you can't handle that for a week you don't deserve to be beautiful.

-- Evie Hruby, Strategy and Portfolio Management, Newbury Park



Flying all the way out to the west coast to have surgery seemed a little scary to say the least. It turned out to be well worth it and easier than I could have ever imagined. Thank you for such a good experience. I love my new eyes.

-- Susan Bennafeld, Indianapolis, Indiana



I absolutely love the results. I appreciate your honesty, understanding, and expertise. It's nice to find a doctor who is good at what he does but also has a great bedside manner.

-- Filmmaker, Burbank



I enjoyed my trip to Southern California. My sister and I had a blast, including getting our surgery from you. I couldn't stand looking at myself with those poor eyelids any longer. I'm so glad we found you.

-- H.K., British Columbia, Canada



I've never written a thank you letter to a doctor before. When I look back on the past year, the most wonderful change was the new lease on life I received as a result of my eyelid surgery. Thank you so much.

-- Museum Curator, Southern California



I would like to thank you for your kindness. I already feel happier every time I look in the mirror.

-- Eva Urbanek, Bronx, New York



Couldn't be happier with excellent results and treatment. Very professional doctor and staff.

-- Suzanne Montgomery-Hart, Television producer & talk show host



Thank you and all the wonderful nurses for taking care of me. I am glad I traveled 7,000 miles to see you.

-- J.L., Businessman, Hong Kong



I was awake the entire time but feeling no pain. It seemed like a dream. This was the best experience I have had with any doctor. Thank you for caring and for fixing my eyes. You are the best!

-- Lora Ware, Systems Analyst, Winnetka



Words cannot express how happy I am with the results of my surgery. I truly believe you have an artist's eye, the compassion of a saint, and the courage of a lion to tackle a problem like mine. When I look in the mirror, I see myself again, someone I have not seen in two years (after unsuccessful blepharoplasty performed on the east coast). It seemed like going to California was an impossible task, but you made it a really easy process. I would tell anyone, anywhere, you truly are a "world class surgeon."

-- Lenore Savino, Landscape Designer, New Jersey



Please tell Dr. Meronk that I think he is an amazing artist and that I truly appreciate his efforts to develop his skill to the degree that he has. I felt so comfortable and am very grateful. Smiles to all of you.

-- Michelle Crawford, Sign Language Interpreter, Tarzana



You manage your office with extreme care and are very nice to deal with. My only gripe is that now at age 46, thanks to Dr. Meronk I have twenty year old girls chasing after me. This is not easy. Thanks guys.

-- Scott Gasborro, Businessman, Fountain Hills, Arizona



Exceptionally pleased with the original consultation, the procedure itself, and the results. A very heads up operation.

-- W. Patterson, Attorney, Ventura



I just wanted to express my gratitude for a job well done. I was hesitant to make the trip initially, but it was really worth it and not as complicated as I first thought. I love my new look. You truly have a rare skill.

-- K.M., Accountant, Essex, Maryland



I appreciate the way I was treated from the moment I called for my consultation to the day of surgery. I am so pleased with the way my eyes look. The procedure seemed easy, and you made me feel very special. Thank you!

-- J.M., Surgical Technician, Westlake Village



My entire experience with your office and staff has been a pleasure. You certainly are the "Nordstrom" of the medical world. Going to the doctor would be a joy if all offices and practices were run like yours.

-- J.T., Washington State (home of the real Nordstrom)



I am happy that I took the time to find a doctor in whom I had complete confidence and trust. I look and feel ten years younger.

-- D. B., Manager, Land Department, Valencia, California



I love my new eyes. My friends think I look better but cannot quite put a finger on it. I get compliments all the time. It's funny how a little operation makes such a big difference.

-- M.A., Lexington, Massachusetts



The care I received from Dr. Meronk exceeded my expectations (which were high). His obvious expertise, professionalism, and his demeanor made my experience very positive. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

-- Kathy Duarte, Project Manager, Sacramento



You are one of a kind. Thank you so much for your help. I will be forever grateful.

-- T. B., Building Contractor, Dublin, Ireland
(after revision of unsatisfactory previous blepharoplasty)



I talked about having my eyes done for years, and as I said immediately following the surgery, "it was a piece of cake!" I'm so glad I did it. Thank you for your wonderful care.

-- Michele Bergman, Medical Insurance Company Director, Calabasas



I have been grateful from the start for the personal attention you and your staff have so graciously given to me. It makes such a difference in the whole process.

-- J.M., Psychologist, Hawaii



Thank you for the outstanding outcome of my surgery, as well as the professional and caring attitude of you and your staff. In contrast, I want to relate a friend's experience. She had the same procedures I did with a different physician at a well respected clinic. She felt the staff to be disorganized with no frills, lots of waiting, and only very basic instructions afterwards. Unfortunately, her outcome was also disappointing. Needless to say she is regretting that she didn't follow my advice and go to you. Thanks again for everything.

-- L. Kelley, Santa Barbara



The care I received was excellent and thorough. The time that Dr. Meronk invests in his patients is generous considering what healthcare has become. I am more than happy to recommend Dr. Meronk to my friends and family.

-- Y.G., Clinical Research Associate, Los Angeles



My eyes look amazing. Thank you for all your good work and your excellent staff. It was well worth the time and effort.

-- Dr. C, San Francisco



I feel lucky to have Dr. Meronk.

-- Nancy Balch Marston, Santa Barbara



Thank you for doing such a great job. My eyes look so nice, though that wasn't much of a surprise after seeing my son's results from you. Thank you for making this such a hassle-free experience for me. You truly are the best.

-- Susan P., Australia



I wanted to thank you for the terrific job on my eyelid surgery. You and your staff gave me great service and care. I recovered quickly and felt very comfortable. I definitely highly recommend you to all my friends.

-- Noel Ramos, Roanoke, Virginia



I wish to thank you for your patience and understanding during my recent blepharoplasty. I know that you had your doubts about whether you could help me because of my facial features. I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I feel that being treated by you was a wonderful experience because your after-care is just as important to you as the surgery. The medical profession needs more caring doctors like you.

-- Sylvia Esquibel, Secretary, Oxnard



The results were exactly what I expected. I've been told I look ten years younger.

-- Patricia Vifquain, Escrow Agent, Huntington Beach



Dr. Meronk did wonderful surgery on my baggy upper and lower lids, and now my family and friends say how much better and younger I look. I should have gone to him earlier. I recommend him to anyone.

-- Arthur Lerwill, Port Hueneme



The care I received during and after my surgery was outstanding. What I feared would be painful and disturbing was neither. The whole procedure was made comfortable and relaxing. Many thanks.

-- J.G., Technical Engineer, Burbank



My kindest regards to ALL of you, from Japan. I hope everything is fine. My lids are VERY fine.

-- B., Sapporo, Japan



Thanks for opening my eyes!

-- Susan Pyne, Personal Trainer, Camarillo



The eyelid surgery you did on me looks just great. Each and every day I look in the mirror, I am so happy that I no longer have to look tired and haggard. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

-- Susan L., Teacher, Ojai



From the bottom of my heart, thank you for taking excellent care of me and making me feel beautiful.

-- E. K., Redondo Beach



From 1 to 10, rated 10!

-- Marilyn Morter, Ventura, California



Hey Dr. Meronk! I just wanted to express my gratitude for what you have done for me! Very few surgeons actually take time to do home work on their patients like you do or care as much as you do. You changed my life in more ways then you can imagine. Keep on changing lives and bringing hope.

-- N. D., West Covina, California



I am so very happy with the results. My lower eyelids both look extremely natural and my facial expression is one I can again recognise. It is over a year now and my lids are nice and full. You did a magnificent job. I will always be thankful for the warmth of your welcome and for the great results achieved. If I ever need another eyelid procedure, be assured I will fly again to Oxnard and ONLY to Oxnard!

-- M.P.P., Bacelona, Spain
(after treatment for post-blepharoplasty hollowness)



I was so afraid to have this blepharoplasty redone because the last doctor I went to left me with such a bad result. Dr. Meronk helped restore my eyes to more like they used to be and I am so thankful. I think he is the finest surgeon and I wish I had gone to him the first time.

-- Christine Lockerbie, Medical Assistant, Santa Barbara



Perfect!

-- Theodore Hostetler, M.D., Oxnard



Those who do not know of my surgery have not acknowledged that I look different because my results are so in harmony with the rest of my face. Thank you for allowing me to see the world through much improved eyes.

-- K., New York, New York



I have been thrilled with the results of my eyelid surgery! I am very open about the fact that I had surgery, so people who have inspected the Doctor's handiwork on me have asked for his name and number. Once I quit looking like an assault victim, the recovery was rapid. I wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone who asks!

-- Nancy M., Attorney, Camarillo



With so many people complaining today about how rushed their visits are and how rude the staff can be, I found you to be thorough, kind, and willing to explain the procedure. Your staff is caring and efficient. Thank you all for your kindness.

-- Mary Snyder, Nurse, Ventura
