"The best around."



"Absolutely incredible experience! My mom had 3rd degree burns on her left leg back in Nov of 2017. The incident was traumatic and we had to act quickly to get her with a physician. Unfortunately, the trauma surgeon she was referred to had no people skills, was less than gentle and had little to no interest in my mom's needs. It was apparent he was focused on getting her to surgery and just sticking to the logistics. We switched to Dr. Dauwe, and it all changed. His attention to detail, open communication and warmth displayed to our entire family was overwhelming. His entire staff was professional and willing to help my mom with very specific needs as she was in a wheel chair during most of the process. They not only provided incredible care, but the skin graft, after care and follow up exceeded our expectations. My mom, along with our entire family knew we were in the best hands possible. Her leg continues to improve and heal, and looks GREAT and she is up and walking again! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Phillip Dauwe and the Lemmon Avenue Plastic Surgery and Laser Center team! The selflessness displayed by all at such a busy time of year was humbling for our family to say the least. We are forever grateful for each of you!!"



"I have always been active since my first child was born 18 years ago. I had been able to stay in pretty good shape until I turned 35. My hips and thighs would no longer respond to diet and exercise and then came the cellulite. As the years went by I would think about seeing a plastic surgeon but always talk myself out of it. Then one day I called Lemon ave. plastic surgery center and Mary ( patient coordinator) answered. She was so friendly, I instantly felt comfortable. Talk about first impressions. I told her my problem and she recommended Dr. Dauwe. When I first met him I was impressed with the attention he gave me and not once did I ever feel rushed. He made me feel like I was his only patient. He was straight up with me, he told me what he could do to help. He performed liposuction to my hips, thighs and abdomen. He did an amazing job. Words can't express how great of a job he did and how wonderful I feel about myself. The surgical team was excellent. The day of my procedure I went to sleep and woke up with a new body. I can't say enough about Dr. Dauwe, the office staff and surgical team but thank you for the new me."



"Absolutely have loved every experience thus far with Dr. Duawe and his team! Bedside manners to just making me feel so comfortable! Thanks again! ???"



"So many good things to say! I went in for a consultation just to get more info on the procedure, and I left feeling 100% confident in Dr Dauwe. He is knowledgeable and kind, answered all questions and even showed me before and afters to ensure he knew the look I was going for. I have never been through any type of surgery and so I was extremely nervous. But the entire team, from Dr Dauwe and the coordinator Julie, all the way to the anesthesiologist (who called the night before surgery to go over everything!) and nurse who prepped me, were all extremely kind and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I cannot stress enough how important this really is! Julie is gold; she patiently worked with my busy work schedule and was easy to get in touch with when I had questions. I 100% recommend Dr Dauwe and his amazing team!"
