Patient Ratings

Dr. Wagner and supporting staff were excellent.

I would recommend Dr. Wagner to anyone! He is not only a phenomenal doctor, but he has an amazing bed side manner with such a huge caring heart!

Dr. Wagner was extremely professional and thorough.  I saw 2 other plastic surgeons before my appointment with him and I am so glad I waited.  Very impressed with him & the staff.
