Michelle Porter is extremely talented. I recently had Botex and filler done by Michelle, and I am so pleased. She has such an artistic eye for the littlest detail, which makes your results just perfect. I will never let anyone else do my injectable’s except Michelle. Also the women at the front desk are all so friendly and helpful just a great experience all around for me.
Michelle and Dr. Mobley are my go to people at SPS! Michelle is a phenomenal, gifted, highly trained and experienced PA... She doesn’t “push” services or products and we laugh the whole time I’m getting injected... Fillers? Yes, she is incredible with this as well! Sarasota Plastic Surgery is Top Notch, First class and hands down THE place for it all. I feel like family when I’m there! Love you guys and ladies!!
It is always a pleasure to go to Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Michelle Porter is excellent, pleasant, and a joy to meet.
I am so happy with the results of the cosmetic procedures they recommended. We chose the least invasive procedures that provide good long term results. I really appreciate the collaborative approach of this office. They truly put their client's wants and needs first.
I don't write too many reviews, but I have to post one for Michelle Porter! I've been getting Botox and filler with her since soon after she started at Sarasota Plastic Surgery. She's completely amazing at what she does and I always trust her judgement. My lips are perfect! The best thing of all is that she's so warm and funny. She makes me feel like I'm hanging out with my best friend the whole time I'm there.
I saw Michelle for constant pain I had been having in my TMJ. She was so awesome! Right from when I walked through the door, the entire staff was extremely welcoming and sweet. Not only was Michelle very professional, but she took her time explaining the treatment and made me feel so comfortable the whole appointment. I now feel no jaw pain at all!!
Kim is absolutely amazing! I got laser hair removal for my arm pits and it only took 10 months! She makes you so comfortable and talks to you during the whole experience distracting you from the pain. My under arms are so smooth and clear! I used to be so dark and now there’s nothing!
Bari and RayAnna and every lady there is absolutely amazing and I will always recommend this office to anyone looking for great care in caring hands 🙂
My favorites here are Michelle and Kimberly. Both are very experienced at providing your facial/aesthetic needs.
I highly recommend Joanne at Sarasota Plastic Surgery for eyebrow needling and Eyeliner tattooing. I am extremely pleased with my results! Joanne was very knowledgeable, kind, and explained the procedure in detail.
What an outstanding and pleasant group of professionals. From their front desk to the hands-on professionals, they were courteous, knowledgeable and genuinely concerned for my needs and wishes. I recommend them highly!
Michelle is the best! Very professional, attends your questions and concerns. happy to leave with just what you wanted. reception is always attentive. highly recommend SPS!
Anna is just the best! I had been going back and forth for a long while on getting Botox and lip fillers, and finally after a ton of research I scheduled a consultation with Anna. She totally understood what I wanted out of my treatments and made me feel so at ease and comfortable that I just went ahead and got the Botox the same day! She did a beautiful job; I'm so pleased.
I’ve been coming here for laser hair removal with Kimberly for years and wouldn’t dream of going somewhere else. Anyone that has had laser hair removal before, knows that there’s nothing “enjoyable” about the procedure. That said, Kimberly truly goes the extra mile to make her patients feel comfortable and at ease. It’s clear that she genuinely cares about her patients and goes out of her way to get to know each patients’ individual needs and concerns.
Rayanna was excellent. I had a hydrofacial - my very first. Rayanna was informed and informative. Provided lots of recommendations for my skin and the rationale behind those recommendations. My face is all cleaned out and my pores feel tighter. I can report back on the recommended products in the future.
