"Performed beautiful work. I am very happy with my results. Very kind and team is very responsive both before surgery and after surgery. Dr. Dash is very personable."



"I could not have asked for a better surgeon and her staff to take care of me! Being a registered nurse myself for almost 3 decades, I know good and bad doctors alike, and all the ones in between. Dr Dash is a  phenomenal, skillful surgeon with incredible bedside manner and strong expertise in her field. She’s engaging, listened to all of my concerns, and explained clearly why I’ve had  problems at other plastic surgery practices in the past. Her nurses are fully trained to know a problem when they see one or to simply put my mind at ease. The front desk staff are always warm and engaging, instantly making me comfortable, as if I’m their favorite patient on the planet. I sincerely hope to never need any further plastic surgery again, but if I do, I’m absolutely going back to where I feel respected, heard, and very well taken care of!!"



"Dr. Dash is amazing. She is kind, caring, knowledgeable and thorough."



"Dr Dash has operated on me twice and once on my daughter over the past 18 years, and each experience from start to finish was amazing! The office staff was always very helpful and kind in coordinating appointments to fit my special circumstances and made sure that everything went smoothly. Dr Dash was thorough with each appointment, and I felt completely comfortable and confident in her care. She took the time to listen to my concerns and address all my questions and needs. My last surgery was the best experience I've ever had. Dr Dash and the incredible team in the surgical center showed so much compassion and care for me and performed my surgery perfectly. My recovery has been the easiest I've ever experienced, and my results are exactly what I had envisioned."



"I loved my experience with the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I needed post weight loss skin removal and body shaping. Dr. Dash has been amazing, attentive, and caring. As a nurse I appreciate how smart and decisive she is. I have a lot of confidence in her skills I'm 6 months out and the scars look amazing. Her office staff have been delightful and helpful. This is such a well run, organized office. I've had a great outcome from lots of skin removal and I couldn't be happier. My only wish is that I had done it sooner. I was tentative and really didn't need to be."
