Dr Tate is so personable. He repaired my split lip after a golfing accident. I’m just 3 months post op and you can hardly see the scar. Also he has a great office staff. I tell everyone who knew about my accident how great he is. Thank you Dr Tate.     – V.T.

I saw Dr. Tate for a face lift; I had just turned 60 and it was sort of a birthday present to myself. I had a general idea of what I wanted and arranged a consultation. The offices and waiting room had very relaxing atmospheres. His staff was friendly and professional. I immediately felt at ease when I first met him and was impressed with both his knowledge and friendliness. He not only saw the same issues as I but suggested some other minor improvements, including a small chin implant. I left knowing exactly the procedures that I would go through and the healing and recovery process, as well as the total cost.

Several weeks later, after comparing my meetings with other surgeons, I called and scheduled the surgery with Dr. Tate’s office. They immediately mailed me a package containing a comprehensive vitamin and supplement regime to minimize bruising and speed the recovery and healing process (it seemed very effective). The surgery was a little over four hours, dressings came off after a couple days, the stitches were out in seven and ten days. Bruising was minimal, I was out in public without sunglasses in less than a week. His suture technique is incredible. After only about 3 weeks, I cannot see any evidence of lines or scarring in the mirror. My chin and neck line look better than they did twenty or more years ago. I could not be happier with the outcome. Thank you, Dr. Tate!  B.M.
