Love working with Carla - she’s excellent. The entire staff and the doctor are lovely.

3 weeks post-op and I love my results more and more every day! I have no regrets about choosing Dr. Stoker for my breast augmentation and C-section scar revision surgery. He took the time to understand what I wanted to achieve, explained what I could realistically expect, and was very patient with my husband's concerns and questions. Everyone on his staff made me feel at ease with their knowledge and care. I can say I felt NO PAIN and, so far, my results are exactly what I was hoping for. Dr. Stone, the anesthesiologist, was fantastic. I was nervous about waking up in pain or nauseous and sick. But my fears were unfounded. I don't remember falling asleep. I woke up feeling great, yes a little groggy and my chest felt heavy, but no pain or sickness. Aubree was my nurse and she continues to be helpful. Everyone on Dr. Stoker's staff has been pleasant and knowledgeable. You can tell they all love their job, KNOW their job, and truly care. When doing my research I found it extremely helpful to learn about the details from patients, so I'll tell you about my experience. His name came up on a Google search I did for 24-hour recovery breast implants. I live in the Vegas area and wanted a doctor close. But I was critical of the surgeon's galleries. Dr. Stoker made the women look like themselves but better. His Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation seemed exactly what I was looking for. I am in my mid-40s, have nursed two children, and wanted fuller breasts with nice cleavage and minimal scarring without looking overdone. My husband didn't want me risking the knife or going under. I chose Dr. Stoker because of his experience and the LA Natural look. Pain and recovery? So easy! When I woke up, I was able to move my arms freely. My chest felt heavy, that was the extent of what I felt. I went back to the hotel, ate a light lunch, and about an hour or two later I was beginning to feel sore, but not painful. I took some Tylenol and a nap for a couple of hours. Woke up, moved around, went to dinner, and then began to feel soreness again. I did take the pain medication that first night because I didn't want to wake up in pain. I could not sit up on my own for the first couple of days and needed my husband to push me from behind. But that could have been because I was wearing a girdle and couldn't use my core muscles well. I did not need the pain meds after that first night. I took Tylenol PM the second night and nothing by the third. I was sore and stiff, but never in pain. I wear a compression bra I like from Amazon night and day. I took my first real shower on Thursday night (surgery on a Tues morning) and it was wonderful. My surgical tape was still on at two weeks and Aubree instructed me to remove it. It came off smooth and easy. I watch what I lift and try to keep my elbows in until they fully heal. I'll have to update my review in a few months. Right now, I couldn't be happier! My husband is also glad I picked Dr. Stoker and surprised at how little pain I've felt.

had a great IPL treatment with PA Quinn Luster at Dr Stokers ! Definitely would recommend her!She ‘s friendly ,professional and knowledgeable . I appreciate that she asks the correct questions about my skin previous reactions before beginning her treatment and applying IPL. I’ m fair completion, blond, in my 60s and take care of my skin , but age and sun takes is toll regardless of spf ! just needed a little brightening and up pre summer clean up !

Couldn't recommend the team at Stoker Plastic Surgery more, especially Quinn, the PA I saw during my visit. She was incredibly patient with me (and my million questions!) and super knowledgeable about the industry and variety of offerings to meet my needs. I was incredibly pleased with my results, natural-looking, leaving me feeling refreshed and confident. Overall, my experience was exceptional and look forward to seeing Quinn and the team again soon.

I went in to see Quinn for Botox. She was very thorough, and listened to exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommend her for a comfortable and trusting experience!

My time at Stoker Plastic Surgery was exceptional, particularly thanks to PA Quinn. She ensured my visit was smooth and I felt at ease throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend their office, especially Quinn for her professionalism and soothing presence.

Nothing but excellent things to say, start to finish, on two occasions. What drew me to him as I was researching upper blephs was his natural-looking results. Secondly, his bedside manner is wonderful -- his vibe in general refreshingly "normal." LA is full of flashy, arrogant surgeons and that type of personality is what I look to avoid. I first had my eyes done by Dr. Stoker and a year later, I came back to have my breasts redone (third set, the other two done by a different surgeon). He underpromises and overproduces. Exceeded my expectations. Staff is lovely as well.

I interviewed several plastic surgeons before deciding to work with Dr. Stoker and his incredible team. From the moment I stepped into their lovely office space and was so warmly received by Autumn at the reception desk, I could tell Dr. Stoker's approach was what I wanted. Everyone of his team members were personable, helpful, and caring. The charming Claudia helped me schedule my breast reduction/lift for a year after my initial visit, adding on CO2 Laser treatment for my sun-damaged skin and blepharoplasty surgery. I am now just over two weeks post op, and I couldn't be happier with the results thus far. My breasts are perfectly shaped and the lift feels amazing! My skin and eyes are still healing, but I'm already impressed with the dramatic improvement to texture of my skin and the brightness of my eyes. Dr. Stoker's thoughtful, kindhearted, upbeat demeanor is a bonus, but what matters more is his surgical expertise and skill, which he has in spades. He's at the top of his profession, and I am so grateful to have found him and his talented team of nurses and assistants. Plastic surgery is a huge investment of time, money, and trust. Dr. Stoker has made my investment well worth it.
