Dr Sternberg is absolutely the best out there. He has wonderful bedside manner and his results are amazing. I have had 3 surgical procedures with him and will never go to anyone else. I am beyond happy with my results. I am still amazed how perfect my surgeries with him have gone. He is a 5 star +++++. His staff is great as well and the office is always pristine. Try him, I promise you will never go elsewhere. Thank you Dr Sternberg, you rock. More

This office came highly recommended by several of my friends and colleagues, and I completely understand why. Every person in the office treats each patient with kindness and respect. I could not ask for better care. Dr. Burk and Carol impress me with every interaction and are so patient with me while I ask all my questions. I will not go anywhere else and will gladly refer them to anyone looking. More

Male Liposuction - Abdomen and Flanks - I went to Dr. Sternberg for a consultation and from the beginning everyone on his team put me at complete ease, was very encouraging, understanding and clearly explored all options. Dr. Sternberg was extremely honest and open about my options and expected outcomes. For a person who was very uneasy about this type elective procedure Dr. Sternberg and his team was the reason I decided to move forward and I am beyond happy with the results. This team puts patient care as #1, they treat you like a member of the family and are very accessible post OP for questions. My procedure fell near a holiday weekend and I still received a call from the nurse and Dr. Sternberg daily for checkup, this makes all the difference in patient care and a recovering mind. As far as the results, WOW, my expectations were blown away. My advice, you can get a procedure anywhere but you cannot get high level patient care and exceptional results without going to the best. I unequivocally recommend Dr. Sternberg and his team for anyone considering a procedure of any kind. ~ S.M~ More

I initially chose Dr. Erez Sternberg for my breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck procedures because he is double certified in General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. But after my consultation with Dr. Sternberg and his staff, I knew my choice was absolutely correct. Not only did he offer advice on what procedures would help my issues, he also asked my opinion on what I wanted, how I wanted to look afterward. I knew my expectations were real, I knew I would never be a size 4 again. I just wanted to wear clothes that fit. He did not push additional procedures, only what I needed to solve my issues.My surgery was a pleasant surprise. No extensive pain and very manageable. I followed the staff suggestions, did nothing for 2 weeks and recovered much quicker than I thought. After 6 weeks, I feel great. Scarring is minimal, especially in the beast area. The pain in my shoulders is no more. My posture is much better and sleeping is a nightly treat. Six weeks of recovery time is well worth the result. Would do it again, ABSOLUTELY!My sincere thanks to Dr. Sternberg and the entire staff of Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery. More

I 1st came to see Dr. Hickman in 2011 I believe, and she was awesome! She really takes time and has genuine concern about you and your wishes. She listens! I have gone to 2 other places since for Botox and once it caused my eyelid to droop on my wedding day and the most recent treatment I received doesn't even look like I had any Botox done and when I called they said I could come back for a touch up at 10$/unit again! Dr. Hickman did any touch ups for free. I was always very happy with my results and I always tell my husband how sad I am that we are so far from Ponte Verdra! We travel a lot for work and are currently 3hr 50min out and I am seriously considering taking that road trip just to be treated as well as the staff at Ponte Vedra treats their clients! Thank you Dr. Hickman for being as awesome as you are! More

I recently had surgery by Dr. Sternberg at PVPS. My experience was an all-around, fantastic experience. From the moment I walked through the door at my initial consultation, the staff was friendly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Sternberg listened to my concerns and came up with a very agreeable plan of care. The office staff handled the whole insurance process with knowledge and ease. Jess, the patient care coordinator, was so friendly and personable and coordinated m...y appointments and surgery. Robin, Dr. Sternberg's nurse, was so informative, and gave me great information regarding the procedure from start to finish. She answered all of my questions and was readily available if I had additional questions. She even called the day after surgery to check up on me. I am so pleased that I chose Dr. Sterberg and PVPS. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sternberg and the staff at PVPS. The customer service and patient care is world class. More

I go to Andrea for all my skin care needs. She is amazing! I have battled acne my whole life. I have tried everything, including almost every topical available, antibiotics, microdermabrasion, and other procedures. After only one month, my complexion almost completely cleared of the acne. The true test came when it was a certain time of the month and I didn't end up with any large cystic acne like I always get. The texture of my skin has improved and I look forward to improving the tone and coloration over time. My husband and friends have all noticed! I recommend Andrea because in addition to having the knowledge to help me with my skin she is also friendly and attentive. More

This review is more about my mother, but at 65 years old she doesn't know how to do reviews effectively online yet so I took the time to write for her. Dr. Hickman is the best of the best in the world, and deserves some true praise. My mom is getting through the toughest point of her life recently, and Dr. Hickman has been a true friend as well as excellent doctor for her through this period of her life. There isn't many people on earth who would provide the true care and con...sideration that Dr. Hickman has shown, comforting my mother through difficult times, and helping heal her along the way. Not only has she been excellent to my mother, her patient, but the times in which my family has dealt with her to talk about my mom or have updates with surgery, etc. - she is so genuinely nice and goes out of her way to keep everyone calm and informed. Dr. Hickman, if you read this - I just want you to know that my mother thinks the world of you, and my whole family feels the same. You are truly a gift from the Lord who helps people immensely. We thank you for all you have done, God bless! - Matthew More

Much Needed Reduction. Ponte Vedra, FL - She is very nice and hands on with the patient. She makes you feel at ease. Very trustworthy. - - I am a 43 year old mother of 4 and my decision to have this surgery for me. I never really had big breasts. I took the depo vero shot about 15 years ago I was a size 36 B cup. As the years went by I noticed that my breast kept getting larger and larger until I ended up in a 36 Triple D. Anyone that has had children Knowles that your breasts will continue to get saggy and undesirable looking. I decided to let Dr Holly Hickman go ahead and do the surgery on me and my expectations where high, but she exceeded it. One thing I can say about Dr. Hickman is that she is very truthful and she would not operate on you if it's not in your best interest if you just want to have surgery. I truly appreciate that because that shows that she has honesty and integrity about her practice and business. Thank you so much.

31 Year Old Mother of Two Finally Gets Her Tummy Tuck - Ponte Vedra Beach, FL - Wonderful wonderful people and place - - After giving birth to my "irish" twins I was left with a very bad over hanging belly. I decided to hire a personal trainer, and with him I lost 70 pounds. You would think that made me feel better. NOPE! The hanging skin looked evern worse. I was so depressed and starTed putting the weight back on. After my husband suggested the TT did I really believe there was hope. I was very nervous a b d scared because I never had any kind of surgery before. But I had a terrific surgeon. Dr.Hickman and her team of nurses really babied me. They took such great care of me that I wonder why I was ever scared. I can tell you more about the operating room and procedure if you like. But as for now I am 2 days post operation and I'm in pain! Beginning to doubt the procedure being worth it. I know I'll feel better once I'm healed and back to normal. We shall see. More

Dr. Hickman...What a Fantastic Doctor and Her Wonderful Support Staff - Jacksonville, FL - I was diagnosed with Stage III Breast Cancer ER+/HER2+, after undergoing chemo & drug treatment, I had a double mastecomy with reconstructive surgery. While making the decision for the reconstructive surgery Dr Hickman was very aware of how hard it was going through the breast cancer trip. You walk into her office and immediately can tell that her and her staff like what they do and they make you feel like family. I was so comfortable with her and her staff. She did a fantastic job at reconstructing my breast and nipples. She was the bright shining light at the end of the dark scary 'breast cancer' tunnel. My family and I found her the most approachable caring doctor we have ever met...and believe me I have met more doctors than I ever thought I would. I will be forever thankful to her for dedication to my feeling 'whole' again. More

Breast Lift with Implant Exchange - Jacksonville, FL - Dr. Hickman is an extraordinary individual. She's a warm and caring individual and a terrific surgeon! I will definitely return to see her when I am ready for my next procedure. I have recommended her to several friends and they all scheduled with her, despite going to additional consults. Her staff is wonderful, very friendly and professional! - - My breasts had become misshapen, despite having implants. Dr. Hickman explained that I would need a breast lift to correct the problem. She explained the procedure and told me what I could expect during my post-operative course and gave me a realistic expectation of the outcome I would have. She patiently answered all questions and I felt most comfortable heading into surgery. I am so pleased with the result, I wish I would have had corrective surgery years ago, but I am glad I waited and found Dr. Hickman to perform my surgery. She is phenomenal! More

Best Decision I Have Ever Made! - Jacksonville, FL - My experience with Dr. Hickman was amazing. She made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. Her staff is so kind and really made me feel like i was the only patient! Very understanding and gave me realistic expectations. Would recomend her and her staff to anyone! TruYou Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville, Florida will always be my first choice in plastic surgery! - - The procedure itself was a breeze. I had no complications and was not in alot of pain after surgery. I took only tylenol for discomfort. I honestly did not expeirence real PAIN just alot of soreness. I was unable to raise my arms above my head or lift things heavier than a gallon of milk. I did get tired easily from doing small things like washing my hair but i had my surgery on a Wednesday and was back to work by Monday! More

I am in my early 40's, BRACA positive, and have been living under the dark cloud of my fate since 2003. Every 3 mos I have been alternating the Diagnostic Mammogram, than the Bilateral MRI. I have been fortunate to of had my Breast Cancer caught very early in 2003 and have had 3 lumpectomies since. In May of 2010, 3 of my Doctors strongly suggested I have a Bilateral Mastectomy. I have had an ongoing issue in my right breast for the past 11 mos. and my emotions along with my Doctors care and concerns were nearing the end. My fate ran out and here I was in a daze having to choose a Plastic Surgeon to assist my surgeon during my proceedure. I was given a sheet a paper with a few Plastic Surgeons listed and was told to choose so we could proceed forward.I was still in shock, numb and felt like a walking zombie. I was definately not in any mental shape to make such an important decision. With the list in hand, and some referrals from friends, I set up 3 appointments with 3 Plastic Surgeons in the hopes that I would "just know" when I met the right one. Dr. Sternberg was my 1st appointment. Due to my Surgeons recommendations and another good feeling I had prior to meeting him, I felt he would be the perfect one to start off with.I just wanted to tell a little of my story so you can truly understand what I am about to disclose.I made my appointment with such a "Professional and Caring" member of his team.

My experience with Dr. Sternberg and his staff was an absolute pleasure. I was welcomed and never felt like a patient being rushed through a procedure. Dr. Sternberg took the time necessary to listen and understand the look I wanted to achieve and we discussed several different options. I am very pleased with my results and will be returning for other services. I have recommended TruYou Plastic Surgery to friends and they have been equally impressed.

Alison has been my aesthetician for a few years now. One of her most amazing attributes is how much she truly cares about her clients. She is very knowledgeable about skin care and treatments and can assist in correcting or maintaining your skin, but her ability to really listen and guide her clients is where her strength truly lies. As long as I have been seeing Alison for my skin care needs, she has committed 100% to my journey to having the best skin possible. From recommending my skin care regimen, to skin pen procedures and/or facials, she is proficient in helping me achieve my skin care goals and she checks in with me often to ensure I am happy with the results I am attaining. If I have a question, she responds very quickly with not just an answer but an explanation so I can determine what the best method or next step is for my particular goals. If you are thinking about taking your skin care seriously or you are just starting out on your skin care journey, I would highly recommend working with Alison. It is not every day you meet someone that takes your goals as seriously as you do. I can assure you, if you want excellent skin that you can be proud of, you will want Alison on your team! More

My face after the facial was just incredible my skin was so soft my pores were so tight which I didn’t think could ever be done without laser or some kind of enhancement like that. The products that you recommended worked like magic just like you said, I saw results overnight and it was incredible and I just wanted to really thank you from the bottom of my heart so much for all of that. I used to at work be running to the bathroom fixing my face because of how greasy it was insert short amounts of time and it was such a stress factor for me and I didn’t have to do it today and I’m just so grateful thank you again.

I have been working with Andrea since March and I am thrilled with the results I’ve seen. I get a HydraFacial every six weeks and use the Obagi products daily. Before this regimen, I would have described my skin as angry-red and rough, with occasional cystic outbreaks. Now, my skin is toned, healthy and smooth. It is the best it has looked in twenty years. I am not self-conscious about it and will even go out without foundation on, something I never would have done before.

I initially chose Dr. Erez Sternberg for my breast reduction/lift and tummy tuck procedures because he is double certified in General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. But after my consultation with Dr. Sternberg and his staff, I knew my choice was absolutely correct. Not only did he offer advice on what procedures would help my issues, he also asked my opinion on what I wanted, how I wanted to look afterward. I knew my expectations were real, I knew I would never be a size 4 again. I just wanted to wear clothes that fit. He did not push additional procedures, only what I needed to solve my issues. My surgery was a pleasant surprise. No extensive pain and very manageable. I followed the staff suggestions, did nothing for 2 weeks and recovered much quicker than I thought. After 6 weeks, I feel great. Scarring is minimal, especially in the beast area. The pain in my shoulders is no more. My posture is much better and sleeping is a nightly treat. Six weeks of recovery time is well worth the result. Would do it again, ABSOLUTELY! My sincere thanks to Dr. Sternberg and the entire staff of Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery. More

If you read the many great reviews on the PVPS website, you will quickly see a theme echoing the tremendous and unique qualities of the PVPS doctors and staff. But, my wife and I thought that it will be good to share some thoughts from me, the husband…which I am glad to do! From a women’s perspective, the excitement of having this ‘change' sometimes overshadows the skepticism which is generally there with any procedure of this nature; but, for me, it was 'front and center’ because this was more than a cosmetic necessity. My wife's implants were 26 years old, and this alone, created some medical complications in what would normally be a routine procedure. However, she felt she had found the right person in Dr. Sternberg during her initial research on the web, and this was fully confirmed, beyond our expectations, during the consultation. Dr. Sternberg was empathetic about the condition of her old implants, he really listened to her and took the time to understand her fears. Unlike many plastic surgeons whom we have heard of from family members, she was not for going ‘big’. He offered options, and true concern for the athletic and natural physique that she sought. She, and I, were both so relieved to be in the care of a surgeon who really listened, and made every effort to fully understand her expectations. This was all finally confirmed as Diane prepared for the procedure, because the staff was a reflection of him! They were calm, un-rushed, and prepared Diane for the total transformation that was to happen over the next couple of hours, as well as the following days and weeks of her healing. Her ‘shape’ went from distorted, hard, disfigured foreign bodies to natural, healthy, beautiful looking breasts. What, perhaps, is most impressive about Dr. Sternberg, and his staff, is that the care and empathy in their follow-up visits has not diminished. As a husband, who cares about his wife and family deeply, I would recommend to ALL partners of someone who is going through this process, to carefully choose a doctor who not only has the skill sets and staff to complete this procedure, but the passion for detail and basic empathy that is sometimes lost in the healthcare industry today. I believe that if you look around and do you homework, you will find many skilled plastic surgeons, but finding one that is talented, passionate and empathetic to your particular situation will lead you directly to Dr. Sternberg and his staff. Besides the transformation of my wife’s “new self image", is the truly unexpected, more profound closeness that has come to our marriage. We are deeply grateful to Dr. Sternberg and his team! More

I must say that Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery is top notch when it comes to skincare and customer service! I chose PVPS based on a recommendation from a friend. I happened to go to a baby shower and in a room full of beautiful women I noticed HER skin. She referred me to PVPS and I have been very satisfied ever since. After meeting with Andrea the aesthetician in the Southside office I felt comfortable exchanging my current skin care regimen for better products and trying the hydrafacial to maintain my skin texture and reduce pigmentation. Her recommendations were spot on and I do not go a day without someone asking me about my skin or telling me how great I look. It is amazing what Andrea has done in 4 months! She is also wonderful at providing top notch service and due to to my travel schedule she is always willing to assist!

I highly recommend Andrea Bailey for your skincare needs. I had scarring and pitting from decades worth of acne so I was skeptical when Andrea said that a series of chemical peels and the ZO line of skincare would be a game changer for me. I became a believer after the first peel. My skin was smoother and the surface scars started to disappear. By the second peel, people started to tell me I looked 10 years younger. I just had my third peel and I can't wait for the results. Andrea is friendly and professional and very knowledgeable about the skincare products she uses. I credit her for the remarkable difference in my skin. After years of trying what had to be hundreds of products to clear acne, reduce oil, and improve texture, her suggestions brought real change after only 90 days. I am grateful. More

I have been frustrated about a saggy neck but did not want to pursue a surgical procedure. I inquired about Kybella, but did not seem to be a good candidate because my problem was muscle tone and not fat. I met with Dr. Sternberg and decided to pursue ThermiTight since it did not require anesthesia and provided a quick recovery. When I arrived for the procedure, I have to admit I was very nervous but he and the staff (Lisa) quickly put me at ease. First and foremost, there was no pain or discomfort. I had considered taking a sedative, but it was not warranted at all. I thought my anxiety would overtake me, but ThermiTight was as easy as any injectable I have taken. My neck was numbed, and I felt only a little pressure in the areas he was treating. About 90 minutes later I was driving home and feeling fantastic. I followed his post-op instructions carefully and had no obvious swelling. No bruising! The three small insertion points were not visible that evening and a week later at my follow-up, he said all was well. I am looking forward to seeing the maximum results in the coming months. The bottom line to all is to consider ThermiTight (and Dr.Sternberg) as a viable and easy option to a surgical intervention. Thanks, doc! More

This is a long over due praise for DR. STERNBERG. I am a very detailed cautious person. I consulted with 3 different plastic surgeons before meeting DR. STERNBERG. He was personable, knowledgeable and extremely forthcoming. I started with uneven OK breasts. I told him I wanted an augmentation that made people guess. I didn't want it to be a noticeable augmentation but I wanted "Pretty, full, soft breast". It was extremely important to my husband that they stayed soft. DR. STERNBERG delivered! They are beautiful.

I was a bit skeptical when my dermatologist recommended Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery to me, when I asked for her opinion as to who I might see for skin care. I had long since tired of department store promises, drawers full of ineffective products and no commitment from either as to the health, care or look of my skin. Under the amazing and thorough care of the world's best Estititian Andrea Bailey and the staff at PVPS Southside for almost two years now, I can attest that my skin has greatly benefited from the medical grade skin care products -- as has my budget. I spend far less money and time being ‘sold’ products that sit on top of my skin (or in my drawer) with little, if any, benefit. Instead, I now set an appointment and have the opportunity to enjoy one-on-one time with a professional who can advise me about skincare and provide products that benefit my skin from a cellular level. Products that actually improve the condition of my skin – not mask it! I finally made the switch to medical grade beauty products about three months ago. Oh my goodness! What was I thinking?! Why did I wait so long?! It is totally amazing the difference in how my skin looks and feels. I cannot say enough about Andrea and the staff at PVPS Southside! They are so friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating – just plain fabulous! I cannot say enough about the medical grade skin care and beauty products, etc., that are offered.

I am amazed at her ability to understand my needs and help me obtain wonderful outcomes. In Nocatee, I have been working with Alison Kuzoian to update and refine my previous permanent makeup (eyebrows and eyeliner). She uses the latest techniques, and I have felt no discomfort!

As someone who has struggled for years with accepting my acne scars, I can’t thank PVPS enough for showing me that I actually DON’T have to live with them. Andrea Bailey, my Aesthetician at the Southside location, recommended that I undergo a series of 3 SkinPen Microneedling Therapy sessions - a pain-free, quick procedure with almost no downtime. It sounded too good to be true, but I decided to give it a shot. And I’m so glad that I did. My skin improved immensely with each treatment. All of my scarring diminished or vanished completely, plus (added bonus!) my skin stopped overproducing oil for several months following each session. No more blotting papers, no more using the blur feature to “fix” my face in Instagram photos - but most of all, and most importantly, no more hiding and no more feeling helpless.

It was great seeing you, too. You're so pleasant, sweet and knowledgeable. The peel went well! My peeling was intense, to say the least, but well worth the hassle for the result I see. My fine lines have lessened, pores are smaller, and I have clearer/brighter skin! I feel like the bags under my eyes look better, too. I'm a fan! Cannot wait to see the results after the next peel!! Thanks for everything. You've made this a fun experience! More

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Burk and his nurse Carol. They are amazing. Dr Burks bedside manner put me completely at ease. Not once did I feel uncomfortable. He preformed a breast augmentation on me and not only am I obsessed with my results, I was completely taken care of from start to finish. His nurse Carol went to great lengths to ensure that I was comfortable and went above and beyond in helping ease my anxiety and nerves the day of the surgery. She was attentive to my needs and took great care of me. I was very particular about the look I wanted and Dr Burk listened to me and executed my wishes perfectly. You cannot go wrong w him. He is the best. Carol is the best. PVPS is the best. More

I have been going to Andrea, Connie and Claudette at PVPS since 2011 when my husband had a procedure with Dr. Snyder. They are all top notch, first class professionals at their trades;PVPS is serious about training with the best in the field. I cannot say enough about each of them but this review is for Andrea Bailey, my Medical Aesthetician. Unfortunately, I live near Gainesville so I don't get in as often as I would like but when I am in JAX I rearrange my day to sneak in for a session with Andrea. She is a delight so its always great to see her and fun fun fun. She has a ton of knowledge about skin, skin care, products and makeup. She stays abreast of the latest in skincare. She always knows just the right procedure to perform on me and I think I walk out (although with no makeup) looking 200% better than before! After a session with Andrea, I feel so good and I always purchase the products she recommends and follow her advice on skincare. She recently recommended that I begin moving over to Obagi's ZO line from Obagi Medical and Skinceuticals. I purchased 3 of the ZO products and have seen results! I look forward to moving over to the entire line as I use up existing products. I highly recommend Andrea because of her expertise! More

Andrea is an active listener and genuinely cares for her patients. She has a natural ability to make you feel at ease and helps solve any problems. I am a tough customer as I suffer from Rosacea and refuse to take any Rx medications. Andrea reviewed basic skin care. Over the course of 4 months my skin is Rosacea free! I feel Andrea is an invaluable asset to your practice as she listens and tailors skin treatments to actual needs. You’re lucky to have her! More

I’ve been a patient at PVPS for too many years to remember, and I will continue to go until which time I actually will need plastic surgery. I go for the aesthetic non-surgical procedures, (so far)! There are many other practices attempting to offer similar services, but no one even comes close in service, innovation, performance, staff attitude and expertise. For convenience, or price, I’ve been to other clinics, including Palm Beach, Boca Raton, even Atlanta but no one compares. They are the REAL thing. Over the years I’ve grown to know Andrea, Connie, and even Barbara at the front desk, all are utmost professionals, always, genuinely warm and welcoming. I also must commend the entire practice for their generosity and graciousness in contributing to our Community. More

No way am I going to miss a chance to encourage anyone serious about getting breast implants to go meet Dr. Sternberg and his staff! Dr. Sternberg answered all of my questions honestly, especially about the size of implants suited for my body. He has a unique caring attitude and one of the nicest and most genuine doctors I've ever met. know that he's a perfectionist because my results are absolutely amazing! I also never had a question before or after my procedure, because Dr. Sternberg's surgery nurse Robin briefed me on the do's and do not's, as well as what to expect post op. Can't express my gratitude on how she made sure I paid attention at my pre op appointment so I did nothing to put my health at risk and prepare me for my surgery day. So appreciative that I was lucky enough to have her assist in my surgery and care and she put my mind at ease due to being so thorough. A special five star rating goes out to Jess, my patient coordinator! She has been my cheerleader since my first consult and was a big factor into why I made the decision to book with Dr. Sternberg. Jess made me feel I was at home and part of their family. The only "sad face" moment I ever had at one of my appointments was when Jess wasn't there to give me a big hug and to chat for a minute! I'm grateful for the care and support that I received from Dr. Sternberg and his staff. I never imagined I would be as happy with my results and honored to call myself a patient! More

Dr. Sternberg, Robin, and the PVPS staff are hands down amazing. I was shopping for a plastic surgeon around the area where I live when 2 of my girlfriends recommended PVPS. Although, it was quite of a drive, considering what my gfs said about the place (word of mouth is the most powerful marketing agent) and the reviews, I said why not. When I called to schedule for an appointment, Naomi was the one who answered all of my questions, she was very friendly, informative, helpful and bubbly. She made me feel very comfortable talking to her about my consultation, my fears and what I'm looking for. After booking the appointment, I thought to myself "hmmm soo far soo good" :) The day of the consultation, I arrived at the Nocatee office and man, it looked beautiful. The nurse was very friendly and informative and answered all of my questions about the difference between saline and silicone, she got my vitals and even refreshments while I waited for the doctor. Robin then came in and then Dr. Sternberg. Dr. Sternberg was amazing, and have great bedside manner. I told him what I wanted and I think he knew right away what I was looking for. He probably knew before I did. I was lost with the sizes; all I know is that I wanted to end up with a C cup. I wanted large natural looking fake breasts. I don't know if that make sense to everyone but it did with him. He took my measurements and let me try on different sizers (best part). The experience with them was amazing. After my consultation with them, I told my boyfriend that he was going to be the "one" to give me pretty boobies and make me look FABULOUS:) The pre-op was great, I'm a very indecisive patient and I kept changing the size, but Dr. Sternberg was great at telling me it's going to be ok, and I'm going to look great. The 2 week waiting period was the worst. All I can think about is my soon-to-be pretty boobies and Robin was AMAZING!!! I have sent her tons of emails about what I want and what I don't want and what I was afraid of, and how I wanted a different size and how I need the doctor to make me a new simulation. She answered all of my emails, she was very patient with me, she was just AMAZING. All in all, the experience was great. The surgery was great, we were there at the crack of dawn. Carol was actually the nurse during the surgery and she was amazing too. Everything went fast and all I can remember before dozing off was me staring at the computer monitor and trying to figure out what music they were playing and what soundtrack the doctor will be listening to while he creates his masterpiece, and then I woke up to my boyfriend's voice. The post-op went well. I felt some pain but not crazy pain. I healed very well. If I ever want anything else done, I will definitely go back to Dr. Sternberg and send everyone to him. My mom started talking about her eyelids and how she wants to get them done. Definitely taking her to see Dr. Sternberg :) More

I was bitten by a large dog. He got the entire right nostril. I went to a plastic surgeon and was told, "you will never look the same, get used to people starring....." I was told the only option I had was to use skin from my face which would cause further deformation. I was heartbroken, I thought I had no other options and my face would be scared for the rest of my life. When I came to PVPS I really had low expectations and was just defeated. Dr. Sternberg, Robin, all the Ladies working were so wonderful and sympathetic in what I felt was the worst time of my life. I had no idea what the procedure was going to end up looking like, I just knew that for the first time a surgeon gave me options, hope, and made me feel like there was a possibility of my nose looking symmetrical. I could not have asked for better results! Absolutely AMAZING. I can't believe how natural looking the nasal repair turned out! If I didn't tell you what happened, you wouldn't even know. I am SO grateful, and pleased with Dr. Sternberg, Robin, PVPS in general. I would recommend him and the office for anyone's plastic surgery needs. I can never thank them enough for helping me to feel beautiful, normal, and happy again. More

From the first moment I stepped foot in the office to the present, I have encountered the nicest people! Dr. Hickman & Stacey, her nurse, made me feel extremely comfortable through the entire process. They explained all my options and the risks involved in full detail. When the time came for the actual procedure, I had all the confidence in the world that I was getting exactly what I asked for! Even, the nurses at the surgery center were very nice and again, made me feel extremely comfortable! I have and will continue to refer others to PVPS for any type of beautifying you might want! I can't forget to say how absolutely amazing Jess is! She is the one who takes your payment & does the scheduling. She is by far the BEST!

Before you judge me, just know that these are all mine. Growing up I've always had these heavy breasts (38DDD/F). I always had shortness of breath could never exercise how I wanted. I couldn't wear cute tops. Bras were hella expensive. I was really insecure about my boobs. My boy friend said he loved them but it wasn't about him. I decided to make a consultation with Ponte Vedra Plastic surgery. My doctor and his staff were absolutely amazing. His name was Dr. Sternberg. I must say I feel amazing. My back is straightened. My mom says they look nice and perky. Growing up I never knew what it felt like to have small boobs. My breast size is a full C. But after swelling goes down might be a B cup. They look amazing. You'd think I's be in pain well I'm not. My pain level is a 1 because of being swollen. I definitely recommend doing a breast reduction. Best decision ever.

The Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery group was outstanding. I always felt comfortable when checking in for appointments. The reception staff was so friendly. The check-out staff was also courteous and helpful. Nurse Robin was a total professional. She was thorough and structured, yet she made me feel like she was there with me and that I could call her anytime if I had questions or concerns. I knew that she would be with me in the operating room and that made me feel comfortable. Dr. Sternberg is just the best. His attention to detail was second to none. His examination was done in such a manner that I knew he was covering all the bases. I could tell that he really wanted to make the outcome of the surgery a success. He wasn't in a hurry and his dialogue was such that I could understand what he was saying. He did not talk down to me. Dr. Sternberg is also very honest. The surgery I had involved my breasts; however, I had also wanted to have surgery on my upper arms to reduce and tighten the skin. I had a right breast Maestectomy over ten years ago and as a result I have Lymphodena (some swelling) in my right arm. Dr. Sternberg examined me and he was upfront in advising me that the benefits did not outweigh the risks. He told me that while I would be a good candidate under normal conditions it was his professional opinion that more harm could be caused by this procedure. I know that he would have done this procedure if he thought it would benefit me, but I appreciated his honesty in advising me that he would not do this procedure. When I had questions and concerns relative to my insurance ,Michelle, who deals with insurance companies all day, was most helpful. She returned my calls in a timely manner and she spoke with the insurance company concerning my procedure. I would like to say that all of the nurses at the surgery center were great. I really liked Dr. Aurello my Anesthisiologist. She was so caring and most knowledgeable. The receptionist at the surgery center could not have been more pleasant and patient. Lastly, I would like to say that Jess, who talked with me about the financial aspects of my procedure, was absolutely wonderful. She was patient in answering my questions and I never felt pressured, at any time to make a decision. She was there to help me through the process and she totally succeeded. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Sternerg and the Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery group to anyone!!! More

My journey with Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery was nothing less than spectacular! My initial consult with Dr. Sternberg could not have gone any smoother. Right from the start he saw my vision, and knew exactly what I was looking for with my end result. Nurse Robin, what can I say, I have never had a nurse give me her cell phone number and tell me to call should I need anything. Talk about going the extra mile to make sure your patients are well cared for. Scheduling with Jessica was a breeze, I changed my surgery date a few times and Jessica had already anticipated future dates without having to play phone tag. Arranging follow-ups with Barbara at the front was not only seamless but a pleasure to do. Receiving text message confirmation reminders is a life saver, I am thankful for those. Everyone at PVPS is a professional, and they treat their patients with tremendous amounts of respect. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the family at PVPS, other than thank you all so much for making my transformation truly amazing! More

Julie, I was writing you in reference to your post awhile ago about shopping PVPS before you started there. I wanted to let you know about my experience and the positiveness I have seen. I became a patient of Dr. Hickman's as her practice was merging with PVPS. I have seen the difference full circle. The front desk staff doesn't have to worry about the phones while helping a patient, I like the convenience of confirming my appointment via text. I recently had my 5th (and hopefully last) surgery 4 weeks ago. I joked with the nurses and said is it bad I recognize you have new gowns back here? We got a laugh out of that. The surgical nurses always make you feel at ease when you go in and that makes it very comforting. You have a phenomenal staff both at Baymeadows & Ponte Vedra. I have seen 3 other dr's for an emergency when Dr. Hickman was not available and you would of never known I wasn't their patient. As a patient that is very comforting. God was looking out for me when I was referred to Dr. Hickman after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Through all my tears her bedside manner is impeccable, I am beyond blessed to have her as my dr. You guys deserve 10 stars for the professionalism, patient care and outstanding staff full circle. Full credit should be given to you for what you have done, and as a patient I wanted to let you know I noticed the changes and am sure many others have as well. More

Due to the need for multiple breast biopsies in the 1970's, I had non-cancer reconstructive surgery performed in 1980 in Texas. Over the past five years I began noticing increasing discomfort from breast encapsulation, and my primary care physician and OB/GYN both recommended that I see a reconstructive plastic surgeon to see what could be done. Since my original plastic surgeon had retired, and the availability of qualified surgeons in my current area was limited, I traveled to Jacksonville to seeDr. Sternberg. I had been very pleased with my original results ... and the fact that my implants had "lasted" for 35 years ... but I couldn't be happier with my "new" results and the professionalism and care I received from the entire staff at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery!! Dr. Sternberg is extremely capable, and he was thorough and honest in his explanations on what my surgery would entail. He has a great bedside manner, and I would recommend him unequivocally to anyone who is considering breast surgery of any kind, elective or otherwise. You won't be disappointed. More

I have been a client of Andrea Bailey going on three years now. My skin looks fabulous due to the care and treatment Andrea has provided. I am a faithful follower of PVPS/Andrea. some of the credit goes to the front desk help also. They are always friendly and very professional. That being said, when I first saw Andrea my skin was in dire need of help. I am 58 years old and my skin was showing my age. I was concerned with wrinkles, sun damage,loss of elasticity all the things really that go along with aging skin. I always tried to use the best products I could afford from the department store, but I really was not satisfied with how my skin looked. After my first chemical peel with Andrea I was hooked! She is very knowledgable about the products she uses and recommends. After my third visit people were noticing a big improvement in my skin. People I don't even know would compliment how ni ce my skin looked! I know they say you can't shrink your pores but mine are almost nonexistent. my skin is smooth and radiant. I love putting makeup now. Andrea makes suggestions for products to use at home that support the treatments she gives me in the office and I have to say my skin has never looked better! I struggled most of my life with acne and a bad complexion, you would not know that if you saw me today. I am so grateful to Andrea and all the staff at PVPS. If you are having problems with your skin or just need to revitalize it a bit Andrea Bailey is the girl to see.If I can steal a quote from a popular television ad "you are going to love the way you look"!

I have been seeing Andrea Bailey for a year now. She came highly recommended to me by other employees of PVPS. And I have to say she lives up to every word! Andrea is a true skin care genius! She has completely turned around my skin. I once thought facials were doing enough for my skin--boy was I wrong! Andrea has introduced me to peels and the results are 10x those of a facial! Just incredible! Andrea also knows all skin care lines and has recommended products that have truly transformed my skin. Andrea is also available via email at all times--something you never see from a skin care specialist! That is how I know Andrea cares about her clients--she goes the extra mile! I just love her and highly recommend her services to anyone! More

I have been seeing Andrea for almost 4 years. No matter what my needs Andrea comes up with a program and a solution that is perfect for me. Beyond her skills as an Aesthetician she is delightful and so full of warmth and personality. My skin has never looked better than it has since I have been with her. She is so good at sharing the reasons why she suggests what she suggests as well as the knowledge and understanding of the new innovations in skin care! I always look forward to seeing her! Thank you Andrea for your skill, your charm and your pampering of me! More

Andrea Bailey is my Medical Aesthetican. My skin has never looked as good as it does after she throughly explained the best way to take care of my skin. Her product knowledge and recommendations have given me the complexion I have always dreamed of. I've been using products from Skin Ceuticals. Pore-refining gel cleanser twice a day, antioxidant serum, a renewal cream, pigment corrector, retinol, an eye cream and most importantly a sunscreen (SPF 50). I highly recommend a visit with Andrea she is very polite and passoniate about skin care. Before meeting with her I had several clogged pores, some redness on my neck and cheeks, my skin was loose and did not have a radiant glow. I had bags under my eyes and at 34 I felt like I looked older than I should have. Now I noticed the other day while putting on my morning make up how beautiful my skin looks and feels. I get compliments all th e time now on how pretty I am. I even got carded the other day at diner for my adult beverage. That means Andrea was able to shave 13 years off the appearance of my skin. This has been the best experience and I will be a life time client! Call Andrea today! Her favorite advice... SUNSCREEN ALWAYS, YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TO MUCH More

Dr Sternberg, I want to give you my personal and sincere thanks for all the work you have done for me thus far. I fully realize and appreciate the additional procedures you preformed on me during my last surgery and didn't charge me for it. I know about my ear lobes, but I don’t know the exact extent of the facial work. You have once again exceeded my expectations. Your talent and caring are second to none in my opinion! I think it's rare in today's world that anyone providing a service at your level to a customer and/or patient doesn’t just see a dollar sign when they walk thru the door. I don't know of anyone who such a thing, except myself. I too, do additional work for my customers and don't always charge them. I think its good business, especially since I don't advertise. I can assure you I don't hesitate in telling my friends and customers of what I've had done and who did the work, I hope the time and effort you put into me will pay off for you. I want you to know that I’m not a wealthy person, not anywhere near it, but I save every dollar and spend carefully, and only when it’s something I need and/or really want. It’s unusual for me to spend money on myself. I would have gotten you a gift certificate for dinner, but I didn’t know where you and your wife enjoy dinner. I also didn’t want to make a mistake and give you something you couldn’t use because of conflict with your religion. I hope you will take your wife out for a nice dinner as a small token of my sincere appreciation and thanks. R.D. More

Oh my goodnesss, PVPS is the best! I am so grateful I chose Dr. Hickman to do my surgery. I really felt I needed to respect my comfort zone to choose a woman doctor for my breast augmentation. She and her team are so professional, friendly and comfortable to be with. One might think standing in front of a doctor and/or nurse without your shirt and bra on, being examined before and after surgery, could feel a little uneasy... but that just wasn't the case for me. That part was a breeze! The administrative process with a most likable assistant Jess, went really smooth. She actually fit me into a last minute cancellation date so I didn't have to wait for a month. I was so thankful. So now... I love my results! It was SO worth it. I would refer my closest buds or anyone to PVPS. More

Secret shopper review: Appointment Scheduling Experience: Naomi cheerfully answered the phone welcoming me to the PVPS. I explained to her I was interested in receiving a facial and possibly some time to discuss the colorscience makeup line so I didn't have to make two appointments. She was very accommodating and offered me an appointment the next day which I booked. She directed me to the website where I could find the new patient forms needed for my visit as well. She was a pleasure to speak with. Check In Experience: I was the 'bad' patient and forgot my completed paperwork at my office and showed up at exactly my appointment time (5:00pm) instead of a little more to complete the paperwork I had forgotten. When I checked in I told the front desk (I forgot her name) and she handed me the portfolio to complete the paperwork there. She never once got flustered because I was 'that' patient. Aesthetician Experience: When Andrea called me back she welcomed me again and thanked me for being there. We walked back to the room and we chatted a little along with way. We stopped in the hallway where I saw the array of makeup. I am a little obsessed with makeup which I told Andrea. She did a quick examine of what she thought my skin needed in the hallway due to the natural sunlight coming through the door. She mentioned a series of chemical peels and a moisturizer, which I had never had before and I told her this. I think she could sense the fear I had because I have seen some horrible chemical peels so I was a little reluctant. She explained in great detail the process and why those people I referenced looked the way they did. It made sense once she explained it so I proceeded with the peel. After she obtained an informed consent, which she gave ample time to read through she started the peel. She explained every step and what to expect which I greatly appreciated and that made me feel even more comfortable with my decision to have the procedure. When the peel was complete we went back to the hallway to discuss which makeup was best suited for my skin. She applied the testers and did the color match that I had requested. I was very interested in the Primer but after applying the testers and discussing the options, it was determined I didn't really need the Primer. I appreciated her honesty with that and appreciate that she did not try to sell me something I didn't need. I am beyond satisfied with not only my experience but my peel and makeup as well. I go back in 4 weeks for my 2nd one of the series. I will definitely continue with Andrea not only because of her personality but because of her in depth knowledge of the products. Check Out Experience: I closed up shop with the ladies and Barbara checked me out. She rang up ALL my products and the peel. I wanted to utilize two cards for these transactions and this was by no means a problem at all. She welcomed that. She made my return appointment and bagged my items. Storming was an understatement when I left and she wished me a safe drive home and I left. More

Dear Dr Snyder, My experience with Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery has been an amazing journey. The first time I walked into your facility, your staff at the front desk was very efficient and welcoming. Next, I meet you and found your demeanor to be very comforting. You put me completely at ease. The day of my surgery, your staff could not have been nicer. Donna, my recovery nurse, they don't get any better than Donna. Jennifer, totally available and returned phone calls as soon as possible. Susie who was very concerned about the hematoma in my neck. She made sure another attending physician on staff Thursday check it out before I was released from my appointment. Melissa, ( I apologize if I do not have that name correct) took my stitches out today and did a fine job. Jennifer, did my makeup and explained a whole skin care regimen. To hear these girls say, I have worked here 13 years, 18 years, etc. , we are a family, really says a lot for you, the other doctors and the working environment at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery. I thank ____ for introducing me to you. However, the nicest complement of all goes like this. I said to ____you have brought five ladies up here. Dr Snyder owes you big time!!!!! Her response to me was...NO I OWE HIM!!! I say I owe you too. Thank you for a wonderful experience. See you next Thursday. C.B. More

Finally big Boobies! - Jacksonville, FL - Dr. Hickman is amazing I knew I wanted a female doctor from the start and she has been absolutely amazing from day one. She really know what she is doing (she talks soo fast!)I will post some before phots and after, as soon as I take the bandage off. I can't touch it for 3 days. - - I am 5'8 and 23 years old. I have Constricted Breast Syndrome and the left is a little tuberous, my right breast is smaller than my left. Have a slight droop to my chest. I have always wanted to go through with this surgery, but didn't know when the right time was or if I had the guts to go through with it. I never want to wear another pushup bra again. I plan on donating them or just throwing them away. I have found a wonderful female PS and I really trust her with my body. I do feel like she knows exactly what I am thinking and what she can do for me and my situation. All her work looks so real and amazing. I am getting silicone gel &quot;Gummy Bear&quot; implants and going under the muscle I have a pretty small B and can fit into most AA's and a 34B. My incision is under the breast. I am going for a natural look but perky. Over all I love my body. I love my legs, hips, torso, but my chest doesn't match my body at all. I plan on going B to D.Im scared. Horrified but I know I want to do this. 8 days until my surgery. Nervous and excited all at the same time. I am very scared of the pain afterwards. I do not feel like the pain medication that I was given will be enough. I have heard that it feels like being hit by a bus. I keep reading the forums and worth it ratings on this site and it helps but I think I am getting worked up over nothing. This site it great and I am so glad I found it.Can over doing it after surgery affect your healing time? I plan on sleeping a lot and reading books while I heal but 4 days after surgery I have to work for two days at my office. I will be doing a lot of typing. Can just walking or typing too much effect my healing? Is that stupid of me to ask that question? I am also concerned that my boobs will be so high on my chest that they look abnormal....nervous about this as well. Another issue...naturally my aerola (color around my nipple) is bigger on one side than the other. Its not by much but it is noticeable to me. Can I have my PS fix this issue? Thats something I need to talk to her when I see her next.I had my pre op consult on the 29th of Nov. The silicone implants will be different but only by a little bit. 400cc on the left and 375 on the right.I will definitely post before and after pix as soon as possible.Thanks for reading and please comment!Love FLGirl More
