I was referred to Dr. Anain by my regular physician and I am so glad and grafeful I did. It was the best thing I could have done and I wish I had know about Dr. Anain a lot sooner as I would have had the surgery sooner. She made me feel comfortable and at ease from the very first meeting. I never felt embarrassed or self conscious. She explained everything to me and My expectations were not unrealistic because of her. I would recommend her to anyone and I would gladly have more surgery if needed if she was doing it. A true professional all the way!!!!!!!

From the moment I walked into dr. anain's office I was made to feel comfortable her employees are so friendly and professional, then you get to meet the friendly little firecracker they call "Dr Anain" she is awesome so bubbly and friendly! she will spend as much time with you as needed and answer questions as long as you ask she doesn't make you feel like you are taking up too much of her time like most Dr's do! I had a tummy tuck and I will just say I don't think I could have been more satisfied!!! I will be going back to Dr Anain for any of my plastic surgery needs!!! I could say so much more but it would take all day!!! All I can say is this Dr is wonderful!! She has changed my life!!! If your looking for a wonderful plastic surgeon Dr Anain is the gal for you!!!!

Dr. Shirley truly understands the importance of minimal scaring when it comes to plastic surgery. I had to have an issue removed from my back a few months before my wedding. Her entire focus was making sure my scar was minimal! She did an AMAZING job! I especially enjoyed working with her because she is a female doctor. She had a lot of comfort and compassion! Thank you Dr. Shirley!

Dr. Anain did a facelift and eyelids for me. She was thorough and explained the entire procedure. The results were fantastic. I look like "me" just younger! I couldn't be happier.

I had breast cancer and went to Dr, Anain for reconstruction. I di not heal the greatest and had some set backs, but it was my fault, I am a smoker and did not heal as well as someone who doesn't. She did explain how smoking would make the healing process slower. But my over all experience with her has been great. When I needed her on a Saturday, she was right there. She even had me go to her office on her day off, so that she could check my incision. So she is a very compassionate and caring doctor and does take the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

This MD seems to have mixed reviews. I'm guessing it depends on the procedure she performs. I have been her patient for four years - for basic cosmetic procedures such as botox and juvederm injections. I am competely dissatisfied with her ability at performing any sort of filler injection, I looked like a fool after the first time, two years ago, but I gave her the benefit of the doubt because I felt like I told her what to do. I now realize that she had no clue on what she should have done. I gave her a second shot a couple weeks ago. Although it is too soon to see how the juvederm "took", I have to say this: Her staff is completely unprofessional. The "girl" who was sitting at teh check-in window walked away, w/o a word, as I stepped up to it. Another staff member who saw this happen stepped up and had me sign in. I was put-off immediately, given I was nervoous about giving the doctoe another shot at messing up my face. During the treatment, an hour after I checked in, she seemed dissinterested in my reminder of how the juvederm injections from two yrs ago had been traumatizing for me. She knew my face was obviously lop-sided for a year! Also - the lighting in the exmination rooms is TERRIBLE for people looking to correct flaws in their faces. She "Likes" the lighting in those rooms. One cannot see the depth and dimensions to one's face. I will not ever go back to this doctor again. She may be great at reconsturctive surgery (not sure) but is definitely one whom you should avooid at providing topical cosmetic procedures, such as injectable fillers. She literally rushed me that I forgot to ask her for a prescription. Take my feedback for what it's worth; just know that I am not one to go on-line to post my thoughts typically. I am just so very dis-enchanted with this doctor and the service she has provided to me.

was called by office staff and asked to come to appt 45 minutes before my scheduled time so i "wouldn't have to wait" - arrived to a horribly crowded and noisy waiting room - waited to register, desk staff not attentive. then waited 60 minutes (exactly - i timed it) to be seen, then 10 minutes in the exam room - all to have the dr spend 3 minutes with me and to tell me she would be in touch with an appt date. I won't be going back.

A few years back, on a Sunday, I fell into a door (slipped on a Hot Wheel) & split my lip open & upwards towards my nose. The hospital called Dr Anain in as they feared I had severed the muscle that controls your smile. Not only did she repair it, to this day there is virtually no visiable scar. She was very kind & compassionate & professional. I would definitely go to her if I ever needed plastic suregery again

I love Dr. Anain.She is kind, caring and took her time when I went to see her.he explained everything to me and what I should expect. I had an abdominoplasty a few years ago after losing a lot of weight. She was highly reccommended by my primary doctor and my GYN. I am thrilled with the outcome of my surgery and will go back to have my breasts done.

Dr. Anain is a wonderful and skilled surgeon. She preformed a breast reduction on me and I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Anain was always available to answer my questions (post-surgery). I even called her on the weekend, with a post surgery concern and she called right back. Dr. Anain is very honest and straight forward. Although the wait to see her (in the waiting room) can take a while ( I have waited 5 minutes and I have waited 45 minutes) it is well worth the wait. She is a remarkable surgeon. I would strongly recommend.

Dr Anain came highly recommended to me by my primary care physician and OBGYN. After having a breast reduction with her last month I can see why and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She was always accessible and very helpful during the entire process. I LOVE my results!!! She did an amazing job and is a very talented surgeon,

My son was born with a cleft lip and palate. When he turned 17 Dr. Anain performed septo/rhinoplasty surgery on my son. She has changed his life drastically. I cannot praise her enough and the work she has done on him. She is truly a very gifted Doctor who I recommend highly. She has given my son outer beauty which matches his inner personality.

Does good work but is EXTREMELY rude, and very hard to deal with. Her un-professional manor made my surgery a nightmare.

Dr. Anain is a very compassionate and accomplished plastic surgeon. She was highly recommended to me for a breast reduction and I am extremely happy with my results! I am completely symmetrical and a perfect size. My surgery was almost 3 years ago and I would do it again with her and have recommended her to many friends. I also recently had a hernia and when the surgeon and Dr. Anain took me into surgery, Dr. Anain fixed a botched abdominoplasty that I had had several years before. I didn`t realize to what extent wasn`t done previously and I am forever grateful to Dr. Anain for the beautiful job she did! In the future I will only go to Dr. Anain. She is a true professional.

I went to Dr. Anain for a breast reduction after doing TONS of research. She is rated one of the top 100 surgeons across the country. I don't know the procedures that people have had that said they were not satisfied, but from my procedure and my experience it was excellent. The staff there are great and make you feel very comfortable. Dr. Anain is very caring and very talented.

Never felt confident and comfortable with her. \"\"Buyer Beware whenconsidering services from her. She lacks he skills and experience to rebuilt and fine tune your breast to get the shape and symmetry right. Ask for feedpack from other patients and ask to see photos of her work both the good and bad. Does not care about your concerns and expectations. She is not sympathetic to your concerns and fails to react with compression. Fails to tell you what you can realistically expect. Think twice when she tells you \"\"You will be as good as new\"\". Seek care with another MD.

Lacks the expertise as a diagnostician and ability to problem-solve. Has no artistic ability something you want in a plastic surgeon. You constantly have to repeat yourself and you feel that she is not following along. I routinely left the office feeling uneasy about decisions and recommendations, Website says you always see the doctor which is true but usually only for five minutes. Difficult to have a dialogue with her, questions are discourage. Fails to inform you of all the possible complications and risks involved in the surgery. Scars are highly visible. Would suggest to seek services from another MD if you want a possible outcome......
