My wife is sick with depression and confusion – Dr. Law lied to my wife, his patient. He was later caught in this lie in an email. We were suspicious of other cases of less than honest communication but didn't get any other proof. Dr. Law is a coward, so he lies to avoid difficult conversations. He also proved to have weak integrity.
The office is run by his wife Kile, who does not understand how to run a business. Kile moved my wife's appointment and did not give a reason, then canciled the appointment when my wife addressed her concern. This prevented the Post Operative visits that were supposed to be included. Kile was so disrespectful to my wife over a week of avoidance, torturous emails through the weekend, and not answering questions; my wife is sick over it. Kile Law burnt the bridge with Dr. Law before Post Ops were done on a very personal and serious procedure, leaving my wife abandoned.
One office staff refused to write down post operative procedures. She told us the advice verbally. We were so shocked when she replied 'No' to our request to write down her advice, we didn't know what to say. We ended up just hoping we remembered everything.
Ultimately, Doctor Laws office made some mistakes that were forgivable and some that were unforgivable, but never took responsibility for any of them.
I've never seen this kind of insensitive and torturous communication in a healthcare environment. Honestly, I have never been treated with such disrespect by any business.
They appear very professional on the surface until the character of the key staff are tested.
Women especially should avoid this potentially tramatic experience.
It can take years to recover from the painful experience of extreme disrespect and unfairness tied with a medical procedure you have to live with for the rest of your life. Do not subject yourself to that by choosing Doctor Law and his staff.
I have never written a negative review online, but I believe this review will save patients and their families avoid serious heartache and inconvenience.
Doctor Law is a typical Los Angeles sergion, do not expect Carolina hospitality, sincerity, or honesty when dealing with his wife/office manager or him.
Ultimately, very bad people. I just hope they change someday, because their behavior is hurting a lot of people.
Ask yourself, do I want to run any extra risk with a surgeon? If this review doesn't scare you away, I can't imagine what would. I wanted to like Dr. Law and his staff, but he and the office manager made me feel absolutley obligated to get the truth out about them.
Not REALLY a free consultation – So, I just called to schedule my "free consultation" and was told that the 1st consult is with and assistant to be "cleared" for a consult with the good doctor, at which time you pay $100 to discuss what you want done and get a quote. You are not permitted after the 1st "free" consultation to just make a decision to go forward with a procedure, ie. Botox, you MUST see the doctor and pay the $100 consult fee first.
What a shame, his concept and site looked really good.
Reminds me of the old saying, "there's no such thing as a free lunch"
One of the BEST... – I am a 36 year old mother of three and was looking to have plastic surgery since I am not planning on having anymore children. I searched for a plastic surgeon for years after giving birth to my last child, keeping various websites bookmarked in my computer, when I came across Dr. Michael Law's website. I liked his philosophy, education background and experience, so I made an appointment. I live on the west coast so in traveling to North Carolina I hoped that I would not feel disappointed. My friends even questioned why I would travel all the way to North Carolina when I live four hours from LA. I'm glad I made the trip! What I found was a very intelligent, kind, mild-mannered and conscientious doctor who cares about his patients, the best individual results possible and overall safety. Dr. Law really takes his time and gives you something to think about in terms of various alternatives. His work is tailored to you. I booked a surgery date soon after my initial consultation for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I returned to have my tummy tuck and I could not be more pleased with the results. I have my pre-pregnancy waistline (okay maybe a little better than the pre-pregnancy waist) back! Dr. Law may be slightly pricier than other doctors but his work speaks for itself and is well worth the price. Whenever I show anyone my results, they may say that they have found a cheaper doctor but they will not say that the work/results are as good. Additionally, I believe that certain qualities in a person are unquantifiable; integrity, honesty, compassion etc. Dr. Law has these qualities. I felt like I could trust him to do the best job. I had a benign breast lump which prevented me from having the breast augmentation that I wanted. Dr. Law expressed genuine concern about my condition and even gave me some insight into additional testing and procedures that I have the right to request. I plan to return to North Carolina for my breast augmentation when my doctors here give me the okay. I highly recommend him to people who are looking for a quality doctor and great results. He's a wonderful doctor and an even better person.
Best Plastic Surgeon in Southeast – I was ready for some changes but I didn't want to have obvious looking plastic surgery so I took a lot of time doing research. After much research and many consultations in several states I decided that Dr. Michael Law was the plastic surgeon for me. His education, training, and results are head and shoulders above any others in this region.
After Dr. Law's consultation I knew he was the doctor for me. He identified issues that contributed to my aging look when we viewed photos of myself in my younger years. Some of the subtle enhancements, like fat grafting in my hollow temple area were part of the over overall effect that made me look so much fresher and younger.
My surgery included eye enhancement surgery for upper and lower eyelids with fat grafting on my lower eyelids and cheeks and fat grafting to my temples and to nasal labial folds.. I had a suture suspension necklift, liposuction under my chin with fat grafting to my jawline to re-contour the neck and provide a nice transition from the jawline to the neck. He also shortened my earlobes that were stretched after years of wearing heavy earrings.
Dr. Law and his staff were incredibly thorough, organized, kind both before and after surgery.He absolutely lived up to his reputation as the best plastic surgeon in the southeast. I felt completely prepared. I had all questions answered The recovery wasn't bad.
My results are absolutely magnificent. I have people tell me regularly that I look like I'm in my 30's. The best part is I do not look like I've had surgery. I just look pretty amazing. I'm 50 now, my surgery was almost three years ago I think I look better at 50 than I did at 35. I told him he could use my photos so look at his office or on his website and look at his before and after photos. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Law for fat grafting and any facial surgery.
Very Happy With Breast Augmentation – I am very pleased with the results of my breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Law. When I attend formal events, go to the pool or even go to the gym I feel much more comfortable than before and I look very natural. Other plastic surgeons seemed to have before and after images that looked artificial. Dr. Law's phjotos looked beautiful. I spoke to several of his patients and they too were very pleased.
His prices were higher than the other plastic surgeons I visited but this was absolutely worth the investment. he and his nurses are great and they seem to genuinely care. The care I received before, during and after surgery was phenomenal.
He discussed particulars of my anatomy and how different incisions would work on by body. Together , and with my husband, we determined that an incision under the arm would be best. I afraid that my breasts would be too far apart with this approach but he assured me though explanation and examples of photos that this would not be the case. he was right. The placement is perfect and my scars after just 8 weeks are invisible.
I was quite surprised at the recovery. He used a pain pump and the pain was very minimal.
After checking on his training, his background, the state board and looking at his photos I knew he was the doctor for me. After meeting Dr. Law I was even more convinced that he was a very good person in addition to being a wonderful plastic surgeon.
I made a bad decision – Everyone knows Dr. Law is the best plastic surgeon in the area. I was still amazed with the beautiful before and after photos his office sent after I sent an email. There were a lot of photos so I saw a lot of women like me, with almost no breasts to start with. So I called his office to schedule a consultation. I had some time off and I wanted by breast inplants right away. I said I needed my surgery in three weeks. The person who answered the phone was very nice and they said they would try to work with my schedule but he was completely booked and surgery within 3 weeks was not possible. I called 3 other offices in the area and all of them told me surgery in 2 weeks was no problem.
I had my heart set on Dr. Law but I really wanted my breast implants for a trip with my husband's company. Instead of scheduling a consultation with Dr. Law I called another office back. I chose a doctor who removed moles from my mom and my mother in law they both like him. I was scheduled for a consultation the next day and surgery 8 days later. The office was nice before and after photos were good, but not great . In hindsight I realize that if a doctor has a schedule that is so flexible, it means no one else wants surgery with him. I also should not have picked a "mole doctor" as my plastic surgeon. And, I should have looked more closely at the before and after photos. I look at Dr. Law's before and after photos now and think why didn't I wait.
It's 6 weeks after surgery. I am very unhappy. My impants are too big. They are 350 cc's which looks huge on my body. My breasts are way too far apart and look and feel hard. My husband is being nice but he is not happy with the result and having them so high and big and far apart. Right after surgery my Dr. said they would settle. They haven't chanaged a bit but now he says they look great If I could do it over again I would take more time and spend a little more money for the best and have Dr. Law do my surgery.
Not impressed at all – Last summer I was considering liposuction for some additional pounds I had gained after a period of inactivity. I saw 3 surgeons in Raleigh; Michael Law being one of them. I guess I understand why you only see the nurse for the first appt. - but it is really irritating. Who has time these days to take off work, arrange babysitting, etc. just be be told I was a good candidate!? They could have done that over the phone. When I finally got to see the Doctor (at the 2nd appt) I spent most of the consultation with no clothes on being drawn all over. I found this uncomfortable, upsetting and unusual compared to the other consultations I have had. Then for the price. They refused to give it to me at the consultation (?) and instead I had to await their call. Their price was $3000 MORE than both other plastic surgeons I saw! Why?
I have since had the surgery with another surgeon and am thrilled with the results (and my savings of $3000 :)
After Much Research I Found the best Plastic Surgeon in Raleigh – I did a lot of research to find the best plastic surgeon for me. I first looked at training, evaluated medical schools, where they received training and how the training programs are ranked. I asked my gynecologist, internist, my husband's general surgeon and every medical professional we know. Every single answer was always Dr. Michael Law. The medical professioanls in the Raleigh area have so much respect for him. Finally, I hosted a "ladies night" including delicious rum drinks. The attendees shared a lot of information when I brought up plastic surgery. To sum it up, Dr. Law's patients were the women who looked great but didn't look like people who had plastic surgery. They just look natural and beautiful. Othr women lokked beautiful too but some had some pretty awful storis about experiences with other plastic surgeons in the area. I learned to ask about lawsuits and complications. Other plastic surgeons have some scary stories.
So, I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Law for my breast augmentation and chin liposuction. I loved all of his photos. His staff was amazing and when I met Dr. Law he REALLY LISTENED. I knew he understood what I wanted. I wanted to look totally natural. His photos are great but speaking to forner patients was very helpful. it really helped me. They all said they felt like their new breasts have been theirs all along. After 5 months I am happy to report the same experience. It is amazing to wear sundressesm srtapless dresses and workout clothing and feel comfortable and totally natural looking.
My husband and I know how much better my breasts look than before surgery but friends others would never guess that I've had surgery, they just think I'm lucky to have perky breasts totally in proportion to my body and a beautiful jawline. I could not be happier with my results.
Dr. Law has better training than any other doctor I could find. He is the surgeon other doctors choose for themselves and their families
Best Surgeon in NC if not the country! – I own a business in the area and wanted to refresh my look without looking "done". I also am in the service industry and make it a practice to only do business with businesses that focus on good customer service. I consulted with several plastic surgeons in Raleigh prior to selecting Dr. Law. I chose him because I felt he listened to me, understood what I wanted and showed me amazing photos of patients who had similar surgeries. I am so thrilled with my results that I hope he shows every one my after photos! I also am so impressed with his entire staff. Each time I have called everyone has been very informative and responsive. They are so concerned about me as a patient and person that it is refreshing. I feel that everyone who works in his office is concerned about my well -being and I could not ask for more. Dr. Law is a clearly gifted surgeon and has surrounded himself with staff who are also very skilled at their jobs and compassionate. I would recommend Dr. Law to anyone contemplating any sort of plastic surgery!
Extremely skilled surgeon – After having children, I went to see Dr. Law for an abdominoplasty and liposuction. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Law and his staff, and most importantly, the procedure results far exceeded my wildest expectations. Two years later on the advice of a friend, I went to a different doctor for a breast lift and some liposuction - this doctor's quote was about 30% less expensive than Dr. Law's. The breast lift is great, but the lipo areas are all lumpy--I can't wear a bikini or really bare my arms now, and that doctor told me the lumpiness can't be fixed (I haven't even checked w/Dr. Law because it's embarrassing and I don't want to seem like a surgery hound). Liposuction is a skill and should only be done by those who are skilled - Dr. Law has the skill and the slightly higher price is definitely worth it.
