Lisa Wright in Marco Island, FL – Jun 06, 2019

Patient

I would recommend Dr. Flaharty and his staff to everyone!! They are amazing! My daughter was getting married and I wanted my eye lid surgery done before the wedding. Dr. Flaharty was very accommodating. The surgery was done, no pain, some bruising that was cleared up before the big day. The wedding was great and I looked beautiful!! My family and friends are ready to make their appointments now!

1 Gary A in Ft Myers , FL – Jun 02, 2019

Patient

I had my eyelids done and I couldn’t be happier as a man I didn’t want my eyes to look like a woman’s he gave me everything I could have hoped for. I would recommend him for any man who is thinking about that surgery. He was great!

S. M. – Apr 24, 2019

It was an excellent experience from beginning to end. My husband sang a love song to me in Greek about how beautiful my eyes are.

Deborah F. – Apr 03, 2019

Patient

I am so happy with the results from my lower face and neck surgery. Like most people I've been wanting to have my surgery for years but afraid of not choosing the right doctor. I know many people in the medical field and hands down Dr. Flaharty came highly recommended by all. My first visit to Dr. Flaharty I was very nervous. His kind manner made me feel like I was at the right place. The only thing I regret is not doing my surgery sooner! To all the staff which is all top notch THANK YOU!

Mary G. – Mar 27, 2019

Patient

Kindness, attentive and very gracious office staff. I just love it here!

Emily C. – Mar 20, 2019

Patient

The numbing gel works so well, I barely felt anything during injection. I'm very particular regarding my lips and he gets it perfect every single time.

R. M. – Mar 06, 2019

Patient

Dermabrasion of my upper and lower lip area helped my creases more than anything has in the past -even laser procedures. Dr. Flaharty knew that this would be the best treatment option for me. I love my neck after the facelift! My eyes are brighter and more beautiful also, he evened them out for me when I felt like one was more open than the other. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr. Flaharty for your facial procedures.

Louisa H. – Feb 12, 2019

Patient

During my initial visit with Dr. Flaharty he listened carefully to my concerns and wants and advised me on what he thought I needed to look my best, the visit consisted of the procedures he would preform, explained recovery times, what I could expect and the costs of everything involved. The surgery happened exactly as he explained, everyone was very professional, knowlegable, patient and understanding. I am very happy with the finial results and highly recommend Dr. Flaharty and staff.

R. G. – Feb 06, 2019

Patient

I had a blepharoplasty done to help with droopy eyelids. I'm very happy with the results and how I look and feel. When I look back at photos taken before the surgery, the results are pretty dramatic. But after the suture line healed, you can't tell I had surgery at all. I'm happy with all the time the staff spent explaining the surgery and recovery with me beforehand.

All of my questions were answered, the surgery went well. Anticipating complete healing.

Michele M – Jan 27, 2019

Patient

I was told I needed an eyebrow lift 8-10 years ago. Since then, I had spoken to 4 different doctors but I always became uneasy about one thing or another. Then I came here and the entire staff, doctor included, are caring, friendly, knowledgeable, professional and welcoming. They tell you what to expect in detail and in writing so you know what to expect every day following the procedure. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Beginning to end.

L. M. – Jan 10, 2019

Dr, Flaharty was understanding to my needs. He did not push me into additional treatments. Very Professional. Would strongly recommend Azul for all your needs.

This was the best gift that I ever gave myself. Since I had the surgery in October, I have received numerous receive compliments. His work is fabulous! And the staff is unbelievable! They guided me every step of the way. I had heard that he was "the best" - and that is the way that I would describe him.

It was a miracle that I found Dr. Flaharty! He has been treating me for many years. My Fillers last and I feel so good afterwards. Dr. Flaharty has made my life better!

Everything was better than expected from the office staff, nurses to Dr. Flaharty. I was totally back to normal in two weeks. I didn't tell many people I was having it done because I didn't want them to discourage me. One of my friends wanted to know why I would even think of messing with the "Mona Lisa". He thought I looked great the way I was. My husband also thought I looked beautiful and couldn't see why I wanted to get it done. Everyone is surprised at how good and natural I look.

Dr. Flaherty looked at my face and knew exactly what procedure would benefit me the most. I was very nervous, as I had previous unsatisfactory experiences with other providers. Dr. Flaherty gave me incredibly natural looking results using Voluma in my cheek area. I could not be more pleased. I am so happy and grateful that I discovered him on Fox92.5 during his weekend radio program.

Exceeded my expectations!! When I saw my eyelids after surgery i was really excited and delighted!!

I approached this operation with a degree of anxiety, because I am concerned about people messing around with my eyes. I should not have been concerned because the entire process went smoothly and without incident. The result has been better vision for me, and an appreciation of the work of Dr. Flaharty and his staff. Yes, I believe that he and his staff deserve the five stars I have given them in each category.

Dr. Flaharty is truly amazing. His skills as a professional are exceptional, as is his entire staff. He is happy to take the time to answer questions and explain, completely. His staff is patient, compassionate, and always ready to be helpful whenever possible. Our referring called Dr. Flaharty an "artist" and I believe that is true!

I have recently had a series of Microchanneling treatments with Lisa Gorman in Azul's Bonita office. She is delightful and a Master Esthetician. The results have been incredible.

Although I chose not to have surgery at this time, I found him very patient and professional.He took plenty of time time listen to my concerns and explain my options.

The surgical procedure and healing was much easier than expected with no pain and minimal discomfort easily controlled.

Very positive experience, very professional doctor and staff. Surgical center was wonderful. The result boosted my confidence level. No pain. If Dr. Flaharty had been around when I was in high school I would've had my eyelids done years ago and it would've saved me some emotional trauma from bullying. Thank you again

From my initial meeting to my final visit, a total five star experience. It took me 2 years to decide to have the surgery and I saw Dr. Flaharty 3 times and he was very professional on each visit. There was no pressure and he did a full examination each time. I would thoroughly recommend him and his first class staff to anyone, as I am so pleased with the result.

Camille G. – Apr 23, 2018

Patient

I have been coming to Dr.Flaharty For about 12 years. From the very first visit, he was extremely patient and knowledgeable. There hasn't been an appointment with him that I haven't walked out looking ten years younger! A few years back, I moved back to NY, on;y 30 minutes from Manhattan, and although I have tried, I cannot find another Doctor that is comparable, in any way! SO, I actually have to take a plane ride for a visit, as he is definitely worth the trip.

Patient

I felt at home the minute I arrived at Azul. The staff harmoniously works together to serve each patient. Close communication from the staff and Dr. Flaharty's technical expertise is the Hallmark of procedures. I'm glad I chose Azul for my lower face and neck lift. The healing is on track and all of Dr. Flaherty's recommendations have been spot on. I look and feel years younger. Thank you Azul!

The initial consultation was accurate with no pressure to proceed. The day of surgery was relaxing as the staff and doctors were comforting and reassuring.
