"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."
"Dr Black is very patient, explains and makes you feel like family."
"Breast implant removal - very comfortable and accommodating - Dr. Black is an excellent Plastic Surgeon. Her intentionality to listen and discuss thoroughly all of my concerns and questions was my deciding factor in choosing her. She took the time to hear me and share with me pictures, details and procedures thoroughly. I felt confident I was making the right decision. My surgery was scheduled quickly and the surgery center was very comfortable and accommodating. Great staff who communicated all details thoroughly and I was able to speak with her in person outside of office hours regarding any questions/concerns. I am thankful for my experience and my health and recovery."
"My experience with Dr. Black was amazing. She was so personable, explained everything, answered all questions and checked on me personally after my procedure. Her staff was so kind and helpful, I cant say enough good things about Dr Black and her staff."
"I had a consultation with Doctor Black in October. She was knowledgeable and experienced with the type of surgery I needed to have performed. She arranged for surgery to be performed within days of the consultation. Following surgery, the follow up care I received from Dr Black was exceptional. She was easily accessible by phone and texts. The response time from Dr Black was generally within minutes of receiving my communication to her. I would highly recommend Dr Black for surgical procedures. I would also highly recommend the Crescent City Surgical Center for surgery."
