Jaclyn V. – Jul 18, 2020
Dr. Huston and her entire team were amazing from the start. I was diagnosed with a melanoma, and upon going to meet with various surgeons to have it removed, I chose Dr. Huston right away. When meeting Dr. Huston, her PA Brittni Silvestri, and the entire office staff, I instantly felt at ease during a difficult time. She made me feel comfortable, took the time to answer every question I had, and most importantly, was able to fit me in for surgery in a timely manner. Upon the day of my surgery, the entire surgery team came in to introduce themselves to me, and made me feel comfortable. Her office staff followed up with me the next day after the surgery to check in. I would go back to Dr. Huston, and recommend her to anyone.

Forever grateful for finding Dr. Huston and her PA Brittni Silvestri. The whole staff is extremely friendly. Her assistant Jennifer worked with me changing my surgery date due to COVID but made sure I had it before losing my insurance. They made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the whole process. She exceeded my expectations. My life has dramatically changed for the better. Tara Huston is truly an artist. I highly recommend choosing Dr. Huston

I can’t even begin to show my appreciation towards Dr Huston, her PA Brittni Sylvestri and the entire office. It was a very stressful time and at times felt like it would never end, but with the knowledge, compassion and determination I love the new me. Bilateral mastectomy to tissue expanders to LAT Flap I’m finally comfortable. Would certainly recommend office for any type of procedure because they truly listen and make it happen

I can not begin to express my appreciation for this dedicated group of professionals. My result was nothing less than miraculous. There are no words to describe the top notch care provided by Tara Houston and her amazing PA Bethany. I'm a nurse and I know what I am experiencing. Thank you!

I went to see Dr. Huston about having a Breast reduction. From day one, Dr. Huston and her physician assistant Brittni were very kind and caring. I was treated with respect and given all the necessary information. The experience was amazing, and I could not be happier with the result. Their passion and care is obvious in the way I was treated and I really appreciated it. I highly recommend Dr. Huston and Brittni Silvestri.

I just finished reconstruction after double bilateral mastectomy. A close friend of mine had the same surgeries as I, and highly recommended Dr. Huston for my reconstruction and I'm sure glad I took her advice. I first met with Dr. Huston and her assistant, Mary, after chemo before mastectomy. They both took the time to answer all of my questions and set me at ease. While have multiple appointments with the expanders, I had her PA-C Brittni Silvestri, who always made me feel at ease as well.

She is a REAL GEM!!
PATCHOGUE, NY – Nov 19, 2018
After a I had a double mastectomy, Dr. Huston performed immediate reconstructive surgery and a later surgery to exchange the tissue expanders for implants. I have only positive things to say about Dr. Huston, Brittni Silvestri (PA-C), and the entire staff. I have been to the office numerous times in the past year and rarely had to wait longer than 25 minutes. Everyone is friendly, compassionate, and professional. Dr. Huston is extremely knowledgable and took her time to explain all the upcomi

Dr Huston removed a melanoma lesion on my leg. She showed care and knowledge in communicating all aspects of my pathology report to me. She turned a serious and scary situation into a routine experience by skillfully completing my surgery and I am quickly on the road to recovery.

I'm in my early 40's and just last month I underwent a hysterectomy, several urological procedures including a bladder lift (w/mesh implant)... AND a tummy tuck ... ALL the same day! I was anxious anticipating what would be a 6+ hour surgery and afraid of all the risks that come along with combining and undergoing such invasive procedures. Dr. Huston worked collaboratively with the other 2 surgeons and their teams. She is wonderful, compassionate, personable and extremely professional.

I can’t say enough about how wonderful Dr Huston and her staff is, including her PA Britney! These terrific health care professionals took care of my young daughter and performed her breast reduction. from the moment we met them, we knew she was in good hands. They are caring and took the time to explain the procedure and make us both feel comfortable. I highly recommends Dr Huston! Her end result is amazing and she’s so much more comfortable! Thank you Dr Huston and Britney!

I met with a total of three doctors for consultation for my surgery, and it was easy to choose Dr. Huston because of her experience, her expertise and the knowledgeable way she was able to discuss the surgery and respond to my questions. My instinct was right on: the surgery went very smoothly and so did my recovery. From start to finish, Dr. Huston, her staff, and the people who worked at the facility where the operation took place were utterly professional; I am very happy with the results.
John C Thomas in Holtsville, NY – Aug 09, 2018
Dr. Huston is a skilled Plastic Surgeon. She was highly recommended by Staff at Sloan-Kettering Dermatology Dept for Closures and Plastic Surgery Procedures. She and her staff are reassuring and compassionate. Several Procedures done on me have had positive outcomes and reflect her knowledge and experience.

Lisa Devlin in Setauket, NY – Jul 26, 2018
Dr. Huston did my reconstruction surgery after my double mastectomies. She was a complete professional in every way from the very beginning as she explained in complete detail what would occur while providing comfort and compassion for my circumstance. The results she produced were incredible and my recovery was very manageable in large part because she prepared my so well for it and has provided wonderful after care as well. I would recommend her without hesitation, she is THAT good!
Dan in SAYVILLE, NY – Jul 26, 2018
I recently had Dr Tara Huston perform plastic surgery on my face. She explained my options to me clearly. She did an excellent job doing the closing of my Mohrs surgery for skin cancer. I had my follow up visit today, she took out the stiches and the wound is looking good already !
NY, none – Jul 14, 2018
Dr. Huston did my breast reduction surgery last year and all I can say is she did A FANTASTIC JOB. I went from an 'H' cup to a 'D/DD' cup and she helped me every step of the way. Dr. Huston and her PA Britney were amazingly compassionate, extremely meticulous, and overall wonderful. I've already recommended her to several of my friends and I can't stop bragging about them (both the Dr. and my breasts!)!

Dr. Huston is an amazing surgeon. She was highly recommended by a friend. The moment I met her, I knew I was in good hands. She was so warm, friendly, knowledgable, and kind. She instantly made me feel comfortable. My procedure was quick and so was my recovery. If I need any more procedures done I will definitely be going back to Dr. Huston.

Be careful with this doctor ..she put the wrong size implant in after a unilateral (nipple sparing) mastectomy, which cased my nipple and areola to be off centered....(WAY off centered) ..I woke up from surgery ..looked down and started crying and I’ve been crying on and off for over 3 years because of her mistake. Find a more capable doctor.
2 Marianne K in Port Jefferson, NY – Oct 08, 2016
Dr. Huston was calm and reassuring to me when I was nervous before my procedure. She treated my kindness and took extra time to explain every step of the procedure before she began and during the excision. She skillfully made the smallest incision possible so that my scarring would be practically invisible. Her nurses were also caring and very professional. I recommend Dr. Huston very highly.
