Anonymous - "Eight years ago I had a lumpectomy due to breast cancer. I also had old implants that has hardened from the radiation treatment. Dr. Testa took out the old implants and replaced them with beautiful new ones. He is an exceptional surgeon, and his staff is amazing as well."

His PA Sarah amazing, compassionate and highly skilled. I have been in the healthcare industry for 30 years and Dr Testa and Sarah , PA, are the very best!"
Anonymous - "Dr. Testa did my breast reduction March of 2020. I'm a 28 year old woman, and while it was for medical reasons, I was concerned with the appearance of my breasts afterward. I am still somewhat young, and I wanted them to look nice lol. Well I must say, Dr. Testa did AMAZING! I'm very happy with my results. It has been 4 months since my breast reduction and I've healed so nicely. My incisions are nice, clean, smooth, and can barely be seen in some areas. During my consultation Dr. Testa informed me that the biggest thing women talk about after breast reduction surgery is the scars. He prepared me 100%, but I've honestly healed so well that I have NO complaints. His team is also amazing! During aftercare I was taken care of so nicely and gently. They took a personal interest and managed my pain perfectly. I want to say thank you to Dr. Testa, Angie, Sarah and Camille. I've now been discharged from their care and set free with my new set of breasts lol. My entire experience was incredible!! Thank you!"
