Dr. Reish was so helpful and very considerate. He talked me through every part of the process regarding my medical insurance and the details of my procedure. He also addressed all my questions with the opportunity to ask more at anytimehereafter. I cannot stress enough the level of professionalism I was treated with, even though I am not the standard of beauty and grace, the nurse and doctor made me feel like I was. Everyone at the office was very sincere and the setting was immaculate, yet comfortable. It so difficult to find a physician that allows you to discuss your body without feeling like you have to excuse or defend yourself. Dr. Reish was able to provide not only honesty, but assurance. I am proud of my decision to choose him as a doctor and I would recommend him to anyone else.

All I can say is that Dr. Reish changed my life! I went in for a breast reduction and my life has changed drastically! He is truly a miracle worker and every time I see him I just want to givehim the biggest hug for making me smile every single day. I had my procedure on April 26 2017 and I remember walking in to the OR with the biggest smile on my face because I trusted him and I trusted he was going to make me happy. The second I woke up from surgery I had no pain and right away I looked down and had the biggest smile on my face! I'm 5 ft tall and 148lbs so I am small and carried around size E breasts that ruined my life. My marriage had issues, I couldn't work out and gained so much weight, I had physical therapy for my back, shoulders and neck. Life was just so hard and depressing, but Dr Reish changed my life for the best and I thank him so much for doing such an amazing and natural job. This man is wonderful and kind and listens so well and his assistant is so sweet and kind also. If you truly want to be happy with any procedure you want to do, I truly recommend this amazing doctor! Without a doubt after my first consultation I just knew I would love his work! And I told him do whatever u think would be best and for sure I got natural and perky breasts that I always dreamed of having! Thank you Dr. Reish for changing my life!

A M A Z I N G !!! Does not even begin to explain how great this doctor is, I went for my first visit with them, and I can tell you he was great. He took care of all myconcern and questions, he was ver warmth and gave me that security you look in a doctor. He was very personable with my situation and even found me the other doctor I needed for my issue just so I don't have to stress so much. If you are looking for the best quality care in a plastic surgeon, I highly recommend him, I have not done a procedure as of yet, but when I do, I will place an updated comments of that as well, but so far I am in love with the way he treat his patients.

Dr. Reish is a very caring surgeon with infinite patience for his patients. I had a difficult case based on a prior surgery with a different plastic surgeon. Dr. Reish did his best to rectify the issues, and was candid aboutwhat could be expected realistically. . He was also available 24/7 to address my concerns both pre and post surgery. He maintains a very strict adherence to professionalism, and generally accepted best practices. With that said, there seems to be a communication problem at his office, as it seems the nurses don't speak to the doctors, nor the coordinators. Each person has a different story, or seems unaware about what the issues at hand are. With better staff training, this office would be perfect. I think it's an easy fix, I think perhaps they are under staffed, or have outgrown their Park Ave location. A good problem to have in a business.

Don't recommend him for trans patients. Was misgendered by staff despite making by gender very clear verbally and in the paperwork. Doctor engaged in gatekeeping and questions about my gender history, despite the fact that I wasn't there about gender related surgery.

They never call me back. They put me on hold forever. I guess they don't want to reschedule my appointment. When I went there first time, they couldn't call my insurance and make sure that it changed the name only. OmgI don't know trying to reschedule an appointment for a week!!!
