If you are looking for a plastic surgeon within Pinellas County Dr Ross’s office should be your final call.From start to finish it was a 5 star experience.The staff is exceptional; they are pleasant , knowledgeable and accommodating.I had to see Dr Ross for a ruptured breast implant to be removed and replaced that he was not the original surgeon on. He took the time to listen and really understood how this had been affecting my life and how I wanted the replacements to be as similar and natural to what I had but to use his own judgment.The surgery itself was almost painless and I was back to work in 5 days. I healed perfectly and the size is perfect for my body shape and size, plus they look and feel almost natural. I am so pleased with the results and feel like a whole woman again thanks to Dr Ross and his team.

I met Dr. Ross about a month ago in the needs of how the previous Plastic Surgery correction. Upon consultation him and his staff there were very helpful in for me with different choices and options available to me as a patient and which ones would be affordable in my situation. Dr. Ross took all the time I needed to speak with me did not care if I spent 23 hours asking questions he was just beyond, the greatest doctor I ever met polite, professional, respectful. In 25 years in the healthcare, I have never met anyone as professional and polite and understanding the pain. The patient is going through in different situations as Dr. Ross upon arriving for the surgery Everyone in the office was so professional silly was beyond beyond sterilize , I have never seen silly dad well repairman for individual. Patient was such a love and care after the surgery every week Dr is heading to schedule appointments to keep checking on my progress. She did a wonderful job. The words cannot explain how grateful I am to Dr. Rose and his team for the wonderful job and provided me with post care after the surgery. Dr. Ross has done a wonderful job as a plastic surgeon correcting the issue from the previous surgery. Dr. and his staff treat me as a on the patient with the respect professionalism and has done beyond a wonderful job. I consider Dr. Ross and his stuff, plastic surgery has the best doctor I ever came across, but bye I have never met anyone who was honest, and also so professional, and cannot express my gratitude to them, I would recommend Dr. Ross and his team anytime of the day and night to anyone and everyone who is looking plastic surgeon. His knowledge experience, and most of all how caring dr is and his team is on the highest level I have ever experienced. I personally want to think Dr. Ross and his team for their hard work and for being available for me at any time of the day and night which you don’t find that in the medical field anymore once again Dr. Ross did wonderful wonderful job, correct in my previous issue which would have resulted me in passing away most likely, when they went for consultation to feel all the doctors which I want named her names day, their prices were outrageous. They kept encouraging me to continue having the same surgeries over and over again knowing that I already went through three of them and had problems with everyone of them. It seem all they care was about is money and not the patient life. Dr Ross‘s prices are very reasonable, and I truly believe he’s the best plastic surgeon his profession. Thank you, Dr. Ross and your team for saving my life

I went to Dr. Ross for a consultation regarding my ruptured silicone Mentor implants. I was shocked to find out that I would qualify for $3500 back from the company due to a warranty. This was the second consultation I went to and had no idea there was a warranty on my implants(other physician never mentioned it). I immediately knew that this practice was different than the rest. They wanted to help me get reimbursed prior to even scheduling surgery. Egle was fantastic and helped file my claim with mentor and took all the necessary steps to make me feel comfortable. The entire office staff is wonderful and the surgical team was top notch . I had an implant removal with a lift. I couldn’t be happier with my results. Dr. Ross truly cares about his patients and goes above and beyond to help them. I highly recommend him for your surgical needs. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you Dr. Ross

Dr Ross is the best! He's one of the most caring and talented doctors I have had the pleasure of having. He is an incredible surgeon and has done 2 procedures for me. ⭐ BOTH MASTERPIECES⭐ My most recent procedure, I insisted my before and after photos go up on his website because women need to see what this man can do! I sure hope he puts them up. He has gone above and beyond and has treated me like a princess since day 1. I am very grateful for his service.Now his staff is no different and will go the lengths to make sure all is well. Riana at the front desk is outstanding, and she is the first person that you meet. She's organized, attractive, smart, and has a very genuine personality. Most importantly though, She's welcoming! She makes you feel good, and makes the scheduling, and the payment stuff easy breezy.Egle, the medical assistant was very pleasant. I found her to be very detail-oriented, very polite, professional, and well-dressed. I felt confident asking her questions because I could tell that she was well educated. She paid attention to me and took her time. I appreciated that.Sarah was my nurse. I really enjoyed her care and attention. She is cute as a button, and went above and beyond to connect with me as a patient and listened to my concerns. (Thank you so much for being so caring, and fun. I enjoyed laughing with you).THANKS AGAIN DR ROSS! THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR TALENT WITH ME🤝

I went to your office for dermaplaning/facial and was treated like an absolute queen. I had services by Cat who is extremely knowledgeable in her field and answered all my questions plus some. She was very welcoming, kind, and personable. I walked out of there feeling extremely rejuvenated and will definitely be returning to see her!
