Cosmetic Testimonials

“Your staff at ADC put me at ease the minute I stepped into the office for my face/neck lift. Chris and Cindy had my comfort first as they professionally started to prep me for the procedure before Dr. OJ entered the room; with Shanna and Layla helping to keep things moving at a quick pace, each knowing just what to do. Dr, OJ is a skilled surgeon and his staff is the best. I had a lot of questions and they took the time to answer every one. There were no surprises for me on my big day or on the days that followed. Again, Great Job.”

“Thank you for noticing the spot on my leg that turned out to be a malignant melanoma. I came in to have my veins treated, and ended up with you catching my cancer in the very early stages. While I’ve been telling my friends than “vanity can save your life,” it’s really your observant eye and training that saved my life. Thank you for making the dream of seeing my children grow up and holding my grandchildren more likely to happen.”

Beverly B., Stillwater, MN

“I had liposuction on my love handles and stomach. Wish I would have done it sooner!! The surgery team of Dr. Rustad, Chris, Cindy, and Franci was awesome; they made me feel comfortable from the start. When I returned for the post op, the surgery team was there and they were amazed at how good I looked already. Dr. Rustad said that it is going to get even better. Recuperation has been fairly easy and I took a week off of work. However, I feel that I could have gone back after 2 1/2 days. I for sure would do it again.”

I will absolutely recommend this to everyone without hesitation.”

“I’ve fallen in love with the laser Skin Rejuvenation treatments, and Botox, of course! I never thought I’d be a Botox kind of girl, but once you’ve tried it a little on the forehead, you’re hooked in a good way. The laser treatments are like a luxury spa treatment. The pampering and the great feeling afterwards, not to mention the fabulous results, are totally worth the price.”
