Plastic Surgery Testimonials

At times, having someone else share his or her experience may be helpful. We wish to kindly thank our patients who have taken time to write us thank you cards or leave reviews about their experience with our office on online review sites.

“I had a blepharoplasty with Dr. Ringler 2 weeks ago. I am in awe once again at his talents, precision, and expertise. I had relatively low bruising and I attribute this to Dr. Ringler’s technique and time spent on my eyes.I am very happy with my result thus far and know it will only keep getting better as my healing continues.Dr. Ringler and his entire staff made me feel comfortable and at ease asking questions and seeking their advice capitalizing on their experience. I cannot say enough positive about my experience with Dr. Ringler and his office staff. Thank you so much for making me feel like my face and my outcome was as important to you as it is to me. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Ringler to anyone seeking a better you!”~ T.B. Grand Rapids, MI (12/13)

“Dr. Ringler and his staff are great. They are warm, friendly, and professional. I felt completely informed and comfortable with my procedures. Dr. Ringler is truly a gifted surgeon and a caring philanthropist. A while back I went with a friend to a consult with a PS in our town. There are very few here and I did not like his manner,. So when I decided to look for myself, I looked further away from home, and I couldn’t have made a better choice. I chose a wonderful and skilled doctor and am enjoying the beautiful results because of it.” (RealSelf Review)

Don’t waste your time looking else where. Dr. Ringer is the best! I had breast aug and one other small procedure. I was extremely impressed with the results and my incisions were almost invisible in less than 2 weeks! Felt very comfortable throughout the entire process and appointments . Very friendly staff. Price was comparable to other Dr’s in GR area. My only regret is not doing it sooner!”–Momwgreatbreastsagain (RealSelf Review -10/13)

“Thank you so much for the beautiful work you did on my facelift. It achieved the results I was hoping for. It looks natural and symmetrical. Thanks also to your wonderful staff. You are the BEST!” — K. K., Grandville, MI

“I researched four surgeons: two female, two male (all from different offices). All had the accreditation, credentials and qualifications. All four had wonderful, welcoming offices; however, Dr. Steven Ringler was the surgeon who stood out amongst them all…he has a five page printout of local, state, national and even international credentials AND accomplishments and he trained most of the plastics surgeons in town (one surgeon of which Dr. R trained happened to be in my “foursome” random pick!). Dr. R is amazing…research him! My sister who is in the medical field in Muskegon offered to drive in from Muskegon to pick me up and bring back to G.R. because she was convinced that the plastic surgeon she knew was the best…come to find out her surgeon was also trained by Dr. R! It was very clear what my decision was going to be. I had my breast augmentation done by Dr. R; he is a set-apart professional. He is a gentle, humble man and I was exceedingly comfortable with him. I had a rich experience with him, his staff and the surgical staff! His “scarless scar” looks just like a crease in my arm pit. I (& my husband) am so very pleased with my implants (which were saline) and the healed “scarless scar”. I waited eight months before writing this review so I could see the healed affects from the surgery…I am so VERY pleased at the results. (fyi: I went from an A cup to a high C) Do your plastic surgeon/implant research! It is eye opening! You will be amazed at the accredited information you will find in regards to implants (esp. on the FDA web site)! Do not completely put your life in the hands of your surgeon in regards to the implants…do your own homework…set aside a few hours and research your implant products…know the pros and cons for each! Be informed!”–online review, realself.com

“Dr. R and his staff of super helpful nurses and administrators are awesome. They make you feel instantly at home, special and comfortable. In addition to their bedside excellence, Dr. R and nurse P are exceptionally confident medical specialists. I had ultherapy just yesterday and it was a piece of cake with wonderful results. Visit them for happy results!”–onlne review, realself.com

“From the consultation to the procedure to aftercare, Dr. Ringler and his entire staff made me feel so at ease and comfortable! Dr. Ringler truly is a caring doctor, he took the time to answer all of my questions. I recommend him 100% and although in my 40s, have never looked better!” –online review, realself.com

“I highly recommend Dr. R because he is absolutely committed to bringing the most up-to-date services to his patients. You can be certain your visit with Dr. R will include professionalism, conscientious care and astute attention to detail, without a sales pitch to do more than you need! What a joy to work with a physician who has YOUR best interest at heart and a physician who can deliver what he promises.”–online review, realself.com – Grand Rapids, MI

“I just wanted to drop a note to thank you for what you did for me (breast reduction). I felt wonderful the day I left the hospital. I couldn’t be more pleased with results. Back and neck pain pretty much gone! I know you do this operation every day, but it’s a miracle to me. My family and friends have stopped calling me because they’re sick of hearing me gush about it. Thank you again, so much! God Bless You.”
