"Great doctor and staff. Couldn’t be more please with current and past procedures. Not only have they done major surgery but also minor procedures. Dr. Yaker has always been able to correct past mistakes easily. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Kristin the on call nurse is top notch. Wouldn’t think to go anywhere else."
"You will have missed an opportunity if you don’t schedule a consult with Dr. Haidenberg - I am very excited to provide my review for Dr. Haidenberg. From my first consultation, it was clear that Dr. Haidenberg puts his patients best interest first. When looking at patients pictures that had similar surgeries to mine, my first observation was that patient outcomes were natural, younger and fresher, but everyone looked like themselves. Aside from Dr. Haidenberg’s personal care for his patients, his technical expertise and ability to explain the procedure, set’s patients up for solid expectations. If you take the time to read his reviews, they each will testify to his skill as a surgeon and that his attention to detail are unmatched. He also collaborates well with Dr. Yaker his partner, which magnifies their assessment, surgical plan, and after care which further enhanced my confidence in Dr. Heidenberg. Beyond the excellence demonstrated by Dr. Haidenberg throughout the process, the competence, care, and personal interest offered by each member of his staff was also unsurpassed. From the moment I entered their office on my first visit and throughout follow ups, the welcoming relaxed environment and dedication to excellence makes recommending Dr. Haidenberg a pleasure and an honor. Regardless your interest in plastic surgery or desired outcome, you will have missed an opportunity if you don’t schedule a consult with Dr. Haidenberg. You’ll find my appraisal is not exceptional, and like others, just tries to express appreciation for a doctor that cares as much about your outcome as you do."
"I could not be more thankful that I met Dr. Yaker! He definitely had his work cut out for him when we met. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results. He is truly an artist and clearly loves what he does because the results are amazing. He has the best bed side manner and always took his time when we met. I never felt rushed. He has alway been very focused on my concerns and what was important to me. The other wonderful thing about him is how considerate and respectful he is to his staff and nurses. I really can't say enough about how grateful I am that he did my surgery. He is a very talented, compassionate, and wonderful man!"
"Absolutely Amazing!!! Dr Yaker and his team are great! They are all so very friendly and will answer any question you have. I had a tummy tuck a week ago and am already up moving around doing daily activities with little pain. The team even came in during the winter storm for me :). Already had so many compliments on how I look as well. I would definitely recommend Dr Yaker and his team!"
"I had contemplated having an elective cosmetic surgery procedure for many years and finally decided it was time! I called to schedule my initial appointment and spoke to Vee. She is as friendly and lovely over the phone as she is in person. What a wonderful first impression to Cosmetic Surgery Associates of Texas!I met with Dr. Natan Yaker and immediately felt at ease with him and knew he was the surgeon for me! We discussed my goals and set about making a plan for surgery. The entire staff is so helpful and kind. Nurse Edna is especially kind and skillful at removing stitches, as is Yeimi. I met with Carrie, the patient coordinator and she was so accommodating. Raquel, the office manager and Vanessa at the front desk round out the incredible staff.The consultation and pre-op appointments were professional and I was excited when my surgery date arrived. Surgery was completed and went as expected. Post-op visits were great and I was very pleased with the results and wondered what took me so long to do this. I highly recommend Dr. Yaker and his caring staff!"
