Patient Ratings

I absolutely love my surgeon Dr. Derek Cody. I've already referred him and the Crystal Clinic to friends in NY, that are willing to travel just to have their cosmetic surgery done by him.

Dr. Cody explained procedure thoroughly. Very warm & calming experience in a scary situation of both doctor & nurses - would highly recommend.

Dr. Cody is always easy to talk and informative. He helped me to make important decisions after my breast cancer diagnosis and will always appreciate everything he did for me and the staff is always so friendly and comforting.

I highly recommend Dr. Cody. I am a breast cancer patient. He has been my plastic surgeon for all of my reconstruction.
