“Thank you Dr. Gould for being a phenomenal surgeon. Your work ethic is impeccable and your expertise is very impressive. Initially, I was trying to convince my sister she did not need any work done, but she decided to proceed with the initial virtual appointment with Dr.Gould. After a couple minutes of listening to their conversation “I” the one that said would never go under the knife to adjust anything decided to set an appointment with Dr. Gould as well. Extensive research was done prior to the procedure, but all I can say is that it was quite the experience. The experience starts right from the start. The staff is very professional, welcoming and attentive. When it was time for my procedure to take place Dr. Gould explained the process (once again) as he was prepping me. I was a nervous wreck at first, but he was able to work his way around and in a blink of an eye the whole procedure was done. All I can say is that I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Gould #itstheneckforme”
“I am in my early 20s and got a chin implant and breast augmentation done by Dr. Gould and his team, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. What I wanted most was to look as natural and seamless as possible, and this is exactly what was achieved. Dr. Gould is an amazing plastic surgeon and individual. He is extremely kind, patient, caring, and has an incredibly warm bedside manner. From the moment I met him, he and his entire team made me feel so comfortable and valued. He truly listens to your wants and opinions and if you have any questions at all, he answers and explains everything thoroughly.

“I couldn’t imagine going to anyone else but Dr. Gould. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is considering plastic surgery and looking to improve their self-confidence!”
“I had a specific window of time in which I could undergo the facelift that I had been considering for a few years, and after a brief over-the-phone consultation during Covid, we met in person and Dr Gould and his assistant Tami made me feel very comfortable with the idea of actually undergoing the surgery. They gave me the confidence to proceed and made the entire experience a pleasure with the thorough preparation and aftercare experience. All my questions were answered along the way and the cheerful, confident attitude of this extremely knowledgeable surgeon and his equally capable nurse instilled trust that everything will come out well.
"It has been three months since the surgery and (when the mask is off) I am so pleased with the results and my daughter said that I definitely look younger and that the problem areas that I had are now diminished. One last thought; it is very apparent that Dr. Gould is thoroughly up to date on all the latest technology, techniques and care philosophies to make the individual their very best!”
“I was very fortunate to have Dr. Gould do my revision neck lift. He is up to date on all the new techniques and always seems to be learning. I had no doubts about the surgery after spending time with him discussing all the facets of the operation. On the day of the surgery, I was happy to see him and looked forward to the next day when I would see results. They did not disappoint. I would recommend him to anyone who wants plastic surgery, a he is the best!”

I hit the jackpot with Dr. Gould who is talented, truly cares about his clients, is a down to earth nice guy who is easy to talk to.
“I would highly recommend Dr. Daniel Gould!"
“Dr. Gould is one of the most amazing doctors I've ever been fortunate enough to come into contact with. His bedside manner is unbelievable and his entire office/staff made me feel right at home from the moment I walked into their office. I had a mommy makeover/scar revision surgery on my right tricep in September, and the results are nothing short of incredible. Dr. Gould is not only knowledgeable, but he is also patient and comforting in a way that not many people are. I would highly recommend him to anyone for pretty much anything. He is the kind of doctor you can trust to be honest, kind, and fair in every way!”
“Doctor Gould is Phenomenal. His work is impeccable and unparalleled. I am thrilled with my results and truly in awe of my experience. Doctor Gould is a perfect mix of professionalism, knowledge, and wonderful warm bedside manners. Doctor Gould’s entire team is an absolute pleasure. So grateful for Tami’s attentive touch. I couldn’t be happier with my entire experience. With complete sincerity I recommend Doctor Gould because he is a genius at his craftsmanship, extremely intelligent, and carrying towards his patients.”
“Dr. Gould is a skilled surgeon and a caring person. He listens to concerns and takes time to explain his plan for improvements. At just one month of healing, I am very pleased with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Gould if you are considering cosmetic surgery!”
“I am grateful to Dr Gould and his staff. From the first time I met him I knew he was the surgeon for me He is extremely thoughtful and kind along with being a skilled surgeon He took time to answer all my questions and made me feel comfortable the day of the surgery and every time I have seen him since. Even with having to wear a mask, people will comment about how beautiful my skin and eyes look. A male friend on zoom said “ I don’t know what you did but you look fantastic.” Thank you Dr Gould for making my face look beautiful which matches how I feel in my heart.”
“I met Dr. Gould while visiting a close friend after surgery. He came to check on her at the after care facility. He left such an impression that I didn't even look for another surgeon. He was thoughtful, patient and a perfectionist. My experience could not have been better. I had breast implant removal with fat grafting as well as a facelift. Couldn't be happier with the results and could not recommend him more!”
“I was a Botox newbie and also ended up doing skin treatments as well (BBL and clear and brilliant). It was all amazing and am so happy with my results! Dr. Dan Gould was great to work with and made me feel so comfortable”
“I met Dr Daniel Gould over a year ago to get some Botox and Juvederm fillers and I could tell right away that this doctor knew what he was doing and was a cut above any other doctor I had seen before for these procedures. I was thinking of a facelift at the time and was a little nervous about taking this next step but after working with Dr Gould I was confident he was the doctor I wanted to do my surgery. I had a face lift and blepharoplasty on my upper eyelids and a little liposuction to the abdomen with fat transfer to my face. It has now been four months since since my lift and I can say I am truly satisfied with the excellent work Dr Gould has done. Besides being an excellent surgeon who who is very knowledgeable and up to date on the latest procedures, Dr Gould is very personable and is always willing to spend the time to discuss any questions and concerns I have. He also does a follow up laser treatment after the surgery called a Halo that continues to tighten and brighten the skin for an all around beautiful result. I can't say enough good things about Dr Gould and because of the great results I received I have three other friends who have also gone to him and have experienced the same caring and professional treatment.”
“The moment I met Dr Gould I knew I wanted him to perform my surgeries. I did a tummy tuck and breast lift for my first surgery with him. I could not make up my mind about implants. He didn't try to push implants on me at all or any other procedures. In fact I was the one pushing to have other procedures done. Once I decided to do fat transfer to breast I knew I wanted Dr Gould to do the procedure. He has such a great bed side manner.”
“I went to Dr. Gould for my breast augmentation last year. He's an amazing doctor and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire experience. He was very consultative and patient with all my questions. I'm ecstatic about the results and Dr. Gould truly picked the best size and shape implants for my body. I highly recommend!!
“Since, he's been the only doctor I'll go to. He does great fillers and lip injections. (I tried a few other doctors prior and was finally happy with my results from him.) I most recently went to him for broadband light therapy and I was blown away with the results. My skin and never looked or felt healthier!”
“I highly recommend Dr. Gould.. He has the BEST bedside manner. The Fillers and Botox that he recommended works perfect for my skin. He was very gentle, and I didn't need to use any numbing cream. I will definitely use him for my cosmetic needs. Thumbs up for Dr. Gould, and I look forward to my next visit.”
“I had a great experience with Dr. Gould and will be back! I went to him for under eye filler, lip filler, and a BBL facial and arm treatment. My results are beyond what I hoped for! Just a few days post treatment my skin is already glowing, the redness on my arms is almost completely gone, my lips are full but natural and my face looks completely refreshed without those bags I had before! I was nervous as this was my first time with injections and laser treatments but Dr. Gould was extremely knowledgeable and walked me through the entire process which made me feel much more comfortable. He was quick and precise so the injections were painless and over before I knew it! People keep asking what I did because I look so good but they cant quite put their finger on what I did (which is the goal right?!). I would highly recommend Dr. Gould and will be back!”
“Dr. Gould has treated me over the last two years for botox injections for headaches and broadband light therapy for improved skin appearance. He is an excellent, charismatic physician who has produced excellent results. I am very happy with my experience with Dr. Gould. I have recommended several friends to Dr. Gould Who are also very pleased. Dr. Gould is always available even outside of regular business hours. I am extremely pleased with the results of my Botox and broadband light therapy. I look forward to visiting Dr. Gould again in the future. I highly recommend this doctor for your surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic needs.”
