Dr. Rast is phenomenal! My quest included several consultations and I was about ready to board a plane to South America with one final consult with Dr. Rast. It was his calm easy manner, his matter of fact medical knowledge, his belief in my own body metamorphosis and, sealing the deal, his openness to discuss that there are many person's out there who could also help but he wanted to be that chosen if it worked(Read between the lines: not money motivated but person motivated). I'm a therapist who is paid to read between the lines and his in between's was genuine, a high level of skill(see past reviews on his education and work), and a energy paired with professional desire radiating in him wanting to do a great job ad help me see life changing results. As we all know a team makes a person as well and his team leaves no disappointment. From the front desk focus driven schedulers, to one of the nurses Vickie who I emailed gruesome shots and strange questions along the way, to Sage the sweetest woman around who never blinked an eye at my saggy rolls we wanted to upgrade, to Jo who smelled wonderful and had a chipper attitude which made me want to hang out with her and laugh more. I realized I have mentioned much here from an emotional basis, however, his work on my body after much weight loss is hard to describe without pictures. Breathtakingly different in the best of ways, an artist carving and re-molding me but not changing who I am so much where someone might say "she's had work done," expedient in surgery, painstaking methodical in where what and how. All fantastic. I would send and am sending anyone who cares to hear how I feel to Dr. Rast. When you land on good people and excellent results in life it warrants an earmark to be taken serious. I am very serious about him and his work. Run, don't walk if you are interested in getting work done.
