“Dr. Murariu is the BEST! He has a great bed-side manner and a sense of humor which I appreciate. He thoroughly explained the procedures he did on me (mastectomy and re-construction) as well as what to expect during recovery. He is extremely detail oriented and that’s exactly what I want in a plastic surgeon. I was lucky enough to have Dr. Murariu as my surgeon and if you ever have the need for plastic surgery you should most definitely call him!”

“Dr. Peterson is exceptional! I had 3 consults before him and doctors will be friendly which is expected but Dr. Peterson was a listener to my needs. He made professional suggestions and told me the predicted outcomes of the ideas I had. I researched and reviewed before deciding and last week I went through with my breast augmentation and I am so pleased. I’m still in recovery. 3 days after my surgery it hurt as to be expected but now I’m just taking it slow. My breasts look amazing!!”
