"Dr. Connors and his staff are some of the most wonderful people I have met since moving to Atlanta. They truly care about you-how you feel, that you are happy with results, really they treat you like family. If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Connors is a must, he will make you perfect!"
"I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Connors and his staff from beginning to end. He is highly experienced, great bedside manner, patiently answered all our questions and best of all I love my results."
"I absolutely love Dr Connors and the staff at both Dunwoody and Milton locations. I’ve been seeing Dr Connors since 2014 and continue to see the staff for my Botox."
"Let me start by saying, 5 stars is not enough for this team of professionals. I can't say enough about Dr. Connors and his staff. Dr. Connors has to be the most caring doctor I have ever met. I am telling you now... I will NEVER go anywhere else. He did my eyelid surgery in November, and I never once felt ANY pain or discomfort. When I say he loves what he does, it has to be true. From the consult to surgery to post op he was so informative, he told me the truth, and talked me through the surgery while in progress. It was such a wonderful experience and I never dreamed I would say that about having my eyelids cut open! He even called me personally the night after surgery to make sure I was ok. I got a call from the nurse too! The office is super inviting, and the operating room was state of the art. In the operating room, they even placed warming blankets on me in case I got too cold. All of these extra little things I would not have normally thought of add up to make sure it is a relaxed and comfortable environment throughout the procedure. The pre and post appointments were informative and prepared me for any and everything. They gave me information I never even thought about. They are thorough, make sure you're prepared, and don't miss a beat. Your safety and wellbeing are top concerns in this practice. I worked with Kristi, Kaysi, and Taylor through this process, and they were all incredibly personable and professional. I felt welcome during every visit and always love talking to them. I have not encountered anyone I would not recommend from this practice. They give the white glove service. I am going back to have several procedures done. My blepharoplasty experience was perfect, and I owe it all to Dr. Connors and team. Thank you all for being experienced and caring professionals. You made me feel at ease about my decision. I will be back for sure!!! I am so happy with the results. I recommend Dr. Connors; he really is the best of the best."
"Incredibly thorough and professional. You cannot go wrong with either Dr.! Dr Hart was incredible with fillers!"
