Hi Maureen, Happy Tuesday morning :),
Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to see you when I came in yesterday to have the cast/sutures removed, but OMGness! I look like a million dollars. Doc had to take the mirror away from me, lol.
Here's my new and improved nose. I can't believe that Dr. Harris said it's still swollen at about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10... it looks so amazing already and I am beyond thrilled with the result. It was worth EVERY penny and more.
Thanks for your emails and kind of holding my hand through my "freak out" phase. You are appreciated.
Have an amazing day.
Dearest Dr. Harris and Staff,
It is indeed a pleasure and an honor to compose this testimonial. My experience was so mind boggling that I almost don't know where to start. When I first contacted Dr. Harris' office I was greeted by this peaceful voice of none other than Brittney who was so nice and accommodating. Then I had a chance to talk to Dr. Harris who made me feel so at ease about what I was about to embark upon, (RHINOPLASTY!!!!). This had been in my view for some 30 years since I had been hit by a drunk driver at the age of 6. Family members thought my nose looked fine because they had become accustomed to the way it looked. However I knew it could look better. After many years of research to find a Doctor to perform the surgery, God led me to Dr. Harris who really is a Godsend.
I physically met Dr. Harris and his staff (Nurse Robinson, Pamela and Brittney) in person for the first time on March 16 just 3 days before my surgery. I was so pleased with their professionalism and that "Personal touch" I received as a client until I felt I was among friends. During my consultation he made me feel that what I wanted was the most important thing on his agenda for that day. We discussed what he would do and the results I could expect. He took his time and didn't make me feel like I was just another number, or that he just wanted my money.
On the day of my surgery as I was being prepped a nurse commented to me on how skilled Dr. Harris is and how I would be pleased with the results of the rhinoplasty. WELL needless to say she was right. My results were so awesome I can't stop looking in the mirror. I know I'm just a month post-rhinoplasty but my nose looks soooo good. My down time was very minimal (1-2 days max) considering I had facial fat transfer also, Facial swelling wasn't noticeable except to me; but my nose still looked good. Did I mention I had to take a plane back home just 7 days after my surgery? Well I did and no one could tell the difference. When I returned home everyone knew something was different but didn't know what, they said " whatever you've done looks good and makes you look younger".
Dr. Harris' expertise and attention to detail (which is major in my book) is a quality that sets him apart as a plastic surgeon. I would recommend you over and over again. Thank you so much for the gift that God has graced you with. May God's richest blessings over take you, your staff and your practice.
Dear Dr. Harris,
Just want to say Thank You for All you've done for me. When I came to see you a few months ago I shared with you what had transpired in my life in the past three years. Losing my mom in 2007, my dad 2008, separating from my husband with three young children in 2009 and a hysterectomy in 2010 left me feeling empty and old.
Dr. Harris before you shared your GOD given Gift in my life I looked in the mirror and saw a woman with age and an empty stare, BUT GOD and your Gift has given me hope in knowing that my latter days will be my greater days.
Now I look in the mirror and see a woman of faith, character and strength with a glow of thanksgiving that I made it through all of my disappointments.
Dr. Harris in the past I would get to work and my co-workers would say "Good morning how are you, you look tired, are you okay?" But now they say "Good morning, what are you doing? You've been looking pretty good lately are you in love or something?, you've got a glow." Thank you again for restoring the youth in my face by restoring life to my eyes and giving me that "You go girl attitude" @ 48 years of age with three children under 15.
A couple of days ago, I was told that I looked liked a model twice in one day I haven't heard that since I was modeling back in 19….. Okay you don't need to know how far back that was. Now I'm off to the gym to do my part thanks again for the jump start in getting me back on track to enjoying my life and my kids. Oh by the way their happier too. I pray that the men and women that look to you for change or enhancement/augmentation find the Blessings in your talent as well as the gifts that GOD can only give to man in loving HIM, others and ourselves.
P.S. With my whole heart a special thanks to Pamela and Brittney you ladies made my visits feel as though I was visiting family.
Dear Dr. Harris,
I am writing to you to let you know how pleased I am with the results of both the Botox and Radiesse treatments. I have gotten Botox in the past from another practitioner, and the results were not nearly as good.
Apart from the skill you have as a physician, I want to commend you for taking the time to get to know me and my ethnic background. As a Caucasian woman of Russian Jewish ancestry, I am aware that my beaty issues differ from women of Asian, African American, British decent or many others. You are very patient and you listened to my goals. Your office environment is so welcoming and relaxing.
I will recommend you to others with the highest degree of confidence.
The journey from my first consultation to where I am today has been filled with adventure,
The journey from my first consultation to where I am today has been filled with adventure, excitement and admittedly, some fear. While I nurtured a life-long annoyance with certain facial features, I had also grown attached to them and changing my physical appearance, even slightly, provoked a few deep, unexpected thoughts about identiy. However, through it all, I felt sure of Dr. Harris' vision, technical skills, and commitment to my care as a patient. I am in awe, frankly, of his attention to subtility and detail.
He demonstrates how less can be truly more as his objective is to make you look like a better version of yourself, not like someone else.
At once a surgeon, and an intuitive visionary in his field, Dr. Harris is much more than a plastic surgeon.
He is an artist.
Dear Dr. Harris,
Sometimes God answers our prayers through special people like you.God has blessed you with a special gift, and you chose to share it with me. I can never thank you enough for the kindness and concern you have shown me. Thank you so much for starting me on a new journey in my life.
May God continue to bless you, your family, and staff.
This is just a very small token of my appreciation.
While what you do is very amazing and deserving of merit & praise, how you do it is what sets you above the rest and makes you great. You bring nobility to any profession. Thank you very much.
Dear Dr. Harris,
I know that it has been quite some time since you performed my mole removal, however, I must say that I was truly impressed by your professionalism, skill and general positive demeanor. I thought that I should still send you this note because it's better late than never. As a young black woman who was faced with the possibility of melanoma, I must admit that it was a very difficult period for me. However, your demeanor, advice and competence all made the process much easier to handle. Thank you for being such an excellent doctor and taking the time to care and help members of this community. You truly are making a significant difference in our lives, even if we don't say it often. Wishing you all the best in your practice and also for the holiday season.
Peace & Blessings Dr. Monte Harris!
Thank you for sharing your gift with me. I truly appreciate your time & attention. You are a wonderful addition to our life! We clicked in a very positive way ever since we first talked. Amazing you are! Keep changing people's lives for the better, you are no doubt magnificent.
With much love, respect & admiration.
Dear Dr. Harris,
What a great day and mostly because of you. Everyone is asking about my removal (maybe I am talking) and I am singing the praises of the wonderful Dr's & staff. I so appreciate you taking the time, I have started saving up for my next visit! Thank You!
Dr. Harris was an outstanding surgeon.
He listened carefully to all my concerns and wishes, and made me comfortable through the process. The results were exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be happier with the successful outcome and my choice of doctor.
I highly recommend Dr. Harris and the entire staff. They are professional, engaging and courteous. Each of my visits was such a pleasurable experience.
Manner and your beautiful office were most impressive! May you always be blessed with good health, inner peace, happiness and love.
Dr. Harris, Monica and Staff,
I could not leave Chevy Chase without saying thank you once again. Traveling from Denver to experience a life changing venture, was well worth the effort, and you made it all possible. Many blessings on your team as you forge new opportunities and impact people's lives.
If you ever want to ski in Denver my doors are always open…
Dear Dr. harris,
I wanted to drop you a note to say how much I have been blessed by you and your practice. Not only are you a phenomenal doctor, but you have such wonderful demeanor! You have regenerated hope for me. I thought my hair would never grow back, but it is growing back!! Thank you for caring enough to help me. You are the best!!!
I had always been self-conscious about my lips. I always felt that my bottom lip was excessively bigger than the top and clearly disproportioned. For thirty years, I struggled with my appearance and the comments of people who laughed at my "juicy lip". When I developed a huge, purple cyst from an accident, the humiliation was more than I could bear. I knew I had to have it removed. My self-esteem had hit an all-time low. As a law enforcement professional, I did not feel comfortable going to work or talking to people at all. By the time I found you, I had already been to two doctors who told me that I'd have a huge scar on my lip that could not be avoided. When I came to you for consultation, I immediately knew I was in the right hands. You took such a personal concern for my problem, and with patience, you developed a master plan. Not only did you remove the cyst without scarring, you gave me the lip reduction I have wanted all my life. The surgery was the best thing I have ever done! I am so happy with the results. People don't notice what I've had done, but they always tell me how much better I look! I am so confident in my appearance now. You are a man who is walking in your divine calling. You are doing more than surgeries. You are changing lives. Your kindness is infectious. I have left your office every visit wanting to be a better person. Thank you for changing my life in such an amazing way! I will always be grateful!
Thanks to you,
I "look good, feel good, and am DOING good!"
Dear Dr. Harris and Pamela,
Even as a writer, I sometimes find it hard to find the right words. So I will just say THANK YOU! For spending so much time with me, for really listening to me, for your compassion, your generosity, and most of all, for giving me, at long last, hope. It means so much.
Dear Dr. Harris,
I wanted to take the time just like I did to complain to say thank you for extending your human side, to make me feel good about the way I look. I will continue to patronize your practice and recommend your services to others not just because of your good work but also because of your listening skills and restoring my faith in a medical profession that these days seems lost in monetary transaction.
