Dr. Monaco is a true gem! Not only is she exceptionally professional and knowledgeable, she is compassionate, personable, kind and an excellent listener. She communicates clearly and makes you feel at ease at all times while addressing any issues or concerns you may have. My family and I have been a patient of Dr. Monaco’s for several years and couldn't be happier with the wonderful medical and post treatment care we have received. Her office is warm and very welcoming. Mu husband, daughter and I have had some minor cosmetic procedures and couldn't be happier with the results. She is an extremely skilled surgeon who understands your needs and builds patient confidence during every phase of your experience. I highly recommend Dr. Monaco and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Dr. Monaco is exceptional. She has an incredible sense of aesthetic and the technical skills to achieve remarkable results.

Dr. Monica is a kind, thoughtful professional. She is talented and personable. An artist in her field — looking forward to receiving more treatments from her in the future!

Dr. Monaco is a top notch professional. She is talented, careful, and personable. She removed the stigma of facial wasting nine years ago, and I go back every year for maintenance. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. And she is a truly lovely person.

Dr Monaco is one of the rare doctors you actually look forward to seeing! She takes such time with each patient, never making you feel rushed or silly for you concerns. I am a total baby when it comes to needles or anything medical and she talks me through everything and distracts me at just the right moments. She hasn't a gentle touch, an engaging personality and does fabulous work. I always leave feeling good (and pretty!). She does the best Botox of any doc in NYC!

I have been a patient of Dr. Monaco's for more than 2 years. She is an honest, truly caring doctor who always has her patients interests at heart. I see Dr. Monaco for Botox and fillers. She always listens to my my needs and works with me to achieve the very best version of myself. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Monaco, she is always up on all ground breaking techniques and most importantly never disappoints.

Dr Monaco has been doing my botox for three years and I most recently had her do a breast augmentation. I think my results are great, natural and feminine. I think she's a great surgeon and she's thorough with her consultation. I would highly recommend her with my three year history in her practice.

I feel Dr JoAn Monaco is my savior! I had MOHS surgery for an Insitu Melanoma above my lip and had plastic surgery to repair the defect. I had a problem with pincushioning after this surgery despite massaging my scar for 9 months. I happened to meet Dr JoAn Monaco and she recommended massaging heavily with BioCorneum top help resolve the other surgeon's problem. Luckily, after 4 months following her advice, my pincushioning was totally resolved. I feel normal again!
