Testimonials for The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery

RE: Recent Surgical Experience

Dear Ms. Rothrock:

I want to let you know what a wonderful experience I had at your facility before, during and after my surgery on November 12.

I was fortunate to have Dr. Poindexter as my physician. He did such a wonderful job; I still cannot believe the results. His bedside manner is terrific and because of that and his knowledge, I always felt I was in very good hands.

I feel I must mention several members of your excellent staff who reflect so wonderfully on your practice. I had the extreme pleasure of being under the care of Cheri, Kim, Christie and several other very wonderful nurses, as well as Kelly at the front desk who was always so professional, pleasant and helpful. I have never visited a physician's office at which the staff was so absolutely wonderful, professional, caring and kind. I have been a nurse for many years and have had contact with a number of practices and yours rates the best of many.

I know that a great many patients pass through your doors, as the physician's reputations are stellar. I just wanted to let you know that one individual has been touched by the wonderful experience provided at Austin-Weston! Please thank your staff for all that they did for me on each of my visits and Dr. Poindexter for the excellent care and skill he provided.

I have shared my experience with others and will most certainly be referring patients to your practice. Thank you for everything!

Kind Regards

Dear Dr. Weston, Dr. Sigal and Dr. Poindexter,

I am writing this letter to let you know how delighted I am with the results of the two procedures performed on me at The Austin-Weston Center by you, Dr. Sigal.

In May, I had an abdominoplasty, a major effort for Dr. Sigal considering the state of my former figure, and this year in February you, Dr. Sigal, gave me a new face. Just getting dressed and catching my reflection in a mirror is a daily joy and reminder of the wonderful treatment I received and continued to receive at your establishment, delivered with sincere and professional concern for my well-being.

I also want to congratulate you on having collected a superb support staff, i.e., Rona, Kathy, Robyn, Carolyn, Cameron, Kristen, Mary, among others, who are unfailingly helpful, polite and charming at all times.

Whenever an opportunity presents itself to recommend cosmetic surgery I mention your offices and show myself off, since I am already a walking advertisement.I have no qualms people knowing that I have been "surgically altered" and, if suitable, you can use me as an example any time.

With warmest regards,


To the Nurses & Staff -

Thanks so much for taking excellent care for me when I had my breast augmentation done on 6/22.

Dr. Poindexter is great!! I just want to let you all know how appreciative I am you all and how you all went above and beyond duty to make sure "us" patients are very well cared for.

Dr. Poindexter has a great staff. Thanks to all who assisted in my surgery - especially the nurse anesthetist whose name was Michelle and the nurse in the OR named Michael. They took GREAT care of me and I really wanted to let them know how much I do appreciate them and what a great job they did. They deserve KUDOS!!

Great work everyone. I am doing GREAT!

Dear Dr. Sigal and the staff of the Austin-Weston Center:

I want to express my sincere thanks to you all for doing a superb job in not only making me look better, but in helping me feel more confident and positive about the whole experience before, during, and after my surgery.

You were always friendly, yet professional. You took the time to provide me and my husband with all the information we needed. You helped us prepare for surgery, and then spent the time and attention necessary to ensure a speedy and relatively trauma-free recovery.

Finally, your facility is first-rated -clean, beautiful and calming.

Again, I am so appreciative of your excellent services and for the care and compassion you all showed me and my husband throughout the entire experience.

April 12,

The Staff of Austin-Weston Center,

Throughout my procedures each and every one of you have been so thoughtful, thorough and competent. Your kindness and caring is genuine and real. I have the utmost trust in each of you and thank you so much. The doctors are blessed to have your support.

Thank you,

Dr. Weston, Elizabeth, Mike, Patrick, Margaret and all that had a hand in creating my new body!

Thank you so much! Though I am still healing, I notice the difference every day!

Your expertise, kindness and compassion will never be forgotten.

I only wish I lived close enough to come for you!


Thank you so much for being such a wonderful doctor.

I just wanted you to know that it has only been three and a half weeks since my surgery and I am already living pain free! After living with breast pain for three years, I could not have imagined what it would be like to wake up everyday and without any pain physically and emotionally. Not only do I feel great, but I love my new physical appearance. I have already lost 6 pounds and am down to my normal weight and on to my way to being very healthy again!

You have changed my life. I have already referred two people to you and plan to refer more. Everyone thinks that I look great! I can't wait to see you at my four month visit and will return for anything else I feel that I need. You are an angel in my eyes!

I just want to say thanks to you and all of your staff for a great experience from start to finish. You all made my surgery and recovery process wonderful!"

You both participated in making the above in my life spring into action where my body was concerned.

Thank you again.

Dear Ruby and Joy,

Thank you for being part of the “winning” team (smile) which made my dream come true and restored to me more than you can imagine. You’re special and gave me something special as well.



Dear Dr. Austin and Staff,

I can’t begin to express my gratitude for all that you have done for me.

It has given me the confidence and self assurance to pursue my career in music. I recently have become the head of the voice and musical theatre department at the Expressive Dance and Fine Arts Center, and I do not think I would have had enough belief in myself to take this position if I had not had the support of everyone at your establishment.

I also would like to thank you for the kind attention my husband received when Dr. Poindexter operated on his face for cancer.

This has meant so much to both of us. It has been such a meaningful experience.

Thank you again,


Dear Dr. Poindexter and each staff member involved with my care,

Each one of you has been so nice
It makes it very hard
To put so much real gratitude
Into a single card.
But if each one of you will read
Between the lines, you’ll know
This brings a “thank-you” more sincere
Than words could ever show.

God Bless each of you.

Thanks for all you have done! You made me so comfortable! Words can’t express how happy I am with everything! Thank you again!

Dear Patti,

Thank you for including me on your mailing list. The “History of the Austin-Weston Center” is interesting reading – and a phenomenal success story! It accurately describes what has been my experience as a patient at the Center.

The staff is warm, considerate and competent. Dr. Austin was always cheerful and tireless in his efforts to please his patient.

Plans for the Center’s move and expansion sound awesome! Be sure to let us know when it happens. – Having seen his dreams come to fruition should ease the “Elder’s” transition into retirement some day.

My best wishes to you and the rest of the staff. May you experience much success in all of your endeavors.

Hello Mary:

It has being a while. I have had plenty of time to think about my surgery since my first visit to the clinic. I also considered points made by Doctor Weston.

I thought about eradicating the tail end of my smile line via collagen implants for now, understanding that that is a temporary procedure.

I will later decide if I need a full surgery if the temporary collagen implant doesn’t work at all.

I have to complement you all. You are all lovely ladies. As “nervous” as I was, you made me feel relaxed. Dr. Weston is a very funny and down-to-earth man. That made me even more comfortable. I will email him under separate cover shortly.

I overheard someone mention that the clinic is moving to a location. That will definitely help in terms of parking area.

I will call you before the week runs out. How’s your associate? The other lady that worked with you on the day I was in the clinic. She’s beautiful, too.

Thank you


Wishing you a warm heart and love to spare - today, and every day.


To a very special Dr. Sigal & his wonder staff,

Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for everything you people have done for me. Nothing will ever be enough to repay you all except everytime I look in the mirror. I smile. You will always be remembered & a long time referral.

Take Care God Bless & my Family thanks you as well!

Eternally thankful,


I just wanted to let you know how lucky I feel that our paths crossed and that you were my surgeon.

From the time I first met you I felt completely at ease with all the unknowns.

During our initial meeting you said two things that I have always believed: You have to go with your own gut feelings and this is a leap of faith. I put my trust in you and was well rewarded by the results of your talent.

You have put a brightness back in me and I thank you.


Thank you all so much for the angelic way you take care of me and those I love so dearly!

Being taken care of so compassionately and gently and with a splash of humor makes what could be a miserable experience (like stitches) almost enjoyable!

I appreciate both the visit to the Christine Valmy salon, which was great fun, and receiving the second set of after pictures. Clearly, the photographer has improved somewhat. I have just attended my 35th high school reunion where the first thing an old beau said to me was "How would you like to get into the back seat of my car and neck?" - which is exactly what a 52 year old mother of four wants to hear on such occasions. I felt like Eliza Doolittle at the ball...and I am having the time of my life.

Thank you all for turning me into a Fair Lady.

I can't say enough times how happy I am with the results ... again... thank you!
