"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."

"There are not enough good things that I can say about Dr. Summer Black. She and her staff were incredibly knowledgable and helpful throughout the entirety of my breast explant. It was important for me to find a doctor that understood what I was going through and that focused on this type of procedure. The surgery center staff was also incredible. My recovery was smooth and I could not have asked for better looking incision scars. I'm forever grateful for Dr. Black and her staff. You will be in great hands with her."

"I just want to take a minute to thank Dr. Elliot & Summer Black for their talent & expertise. Their laid back demeanor immediately put me at ease and my whole surgery experience was way better than I ever imagined and beyond pleased with my results. This surgery was truly life changing for me and highly recommend Dr. Black plastic surgery for anyone seeking abdominoplasty. They beautifully erased over a decade of shame, embarrassment, and discomfort for which I am truly grateful. I want to thank you once more for what feels like a brand new life! Also want to add that Mrs. Patty is a gem and always easy to speak to when it comes to ANY questions. And last but not least, I cannot forget how amazing Crescent Surgery Center, where my surgery was performed. My whole experience was top notch from start to finish!"
