"Dr. Rough and his entire staff are incredible. From start to finish, they are compassionate, empathetic, and thorough. From the consult to the operation I felt I was taken care of by professional, genuinely caring people. I’ve had a few cosmetic surgeries and I always get sick from the anesthesia, Dr. Rough’s anesthesiologist is the most wonderful sweet human being I’ve ever met. Everyone that is on his team is amazing and just as sweet. You will be in good hands with anything Dr. Rough does. I am writing this review day of surgery and I am feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. James Rough if you are looking for a skilled and caring surgeon with a team that will take care of you from start to finish. I cannot wait for my results!"

"I would highly recommend Dr. Rough to my family and closest friends. I had breast augmentation done about two years after having a baby. I am so incredibly happy with the results. They look exactly the way I hoped they would. Dr. Rough was kind, caring, and ensured I felt comfortable throughout the entire process. I felt like he listened to me and truly cared about what I wanted. I was worried about how breast augmentation might affect running and working out, and Dr. Rough answered all of my questions. Anissa was also wonderful- she is very friendly and always available to answer questions. The day of surgery was easy, and I felt well taken care of by the entire team. I am so grateful for the confidence that Dr. Rough gave me."

"I will update this review as I get through the process but I want to start now so I don’t forget anything: I had done 12 virtual consultations and 3 in person consultations before my consultation with Dr. rough for my skin removal post weight loss (tummy tuck) After meeting with him I didn’t feel the urge to meet with anyone else; I knew I wanted him as my surgeon. When I walked into the very clean smelling office I was greeted by a receptionist who was wearing a face mask but despite not being able to see half her face her personality still shined through as helpful, polite and happy. I arrived 10 minutes early and was seen right on time. When Dr. Rough came into the room he made sure to answer all my questions, he showed me what areas he would be able to work and always followed his direct responses with an easy to understand medical reason for why something could or couldn’t happen. He made sure to have a female assistant (I’m not sure of her title) in the room the entire time I was unrobed. He checked with me to make sure the extra eyes in the room was ok prior to but the fact that I didn’t have to request her myself made me feel very comfortable as not all the surgeons before him did that. I won’t discuss the actual price because pricing can change based on your needs but I got a tummy tuck with MR and Lipo to the abdomen. He also address the pelvic area so I wouldn’t look like a ken doll after surgery. It was a lot of money but not nearly as much as some surgeons were charging. I got my surgery today 9/9/2022 - the anesthesiologist was hilarious and very sweet. The nurses at the surgical center made me feel like I was making a good decision and after I got out of surgery they monitored me and sent me home. Apparently I am hilarious when recovery from anesthesia but that doesn’t belong in this review lol I am now home with a clear understanding of the medications I need to take and how frequently I should empty my drains. Dr rough called at 830pm to check on me and make sure all is well before our appointment tomorrow. I am able to walk hunched over but no crazy complications or greys anatomy style issues. I will update this after seeing my incision tomorrow and again after a few months. Over all my experience so far is outstanding and I encourage you to consider him as your surgeon. Update: I am 3 days post op. I did my one day follow up yesterday. Dr rough was very thorough about what to do next and I’m able to shower today! He also gave his cellphone number for any questions I may have and his response time has been with in minutes. One of my main concerns was how surgeons do their incisions and belly buttons- he EXCEEDED my expectation. He gave me an innie belly button and it looks so natural!!!! Even the incision was super low and he did his absolute best to avoid cutting through my side tattoos. I’ll update again after drains are out in a few weeks but still 5 stars"

"I've came across many surgeons that have only thought about just putting money in there pockets rather than having the compassion and understanding for the Pt. it was a scary thought undergoing surgery not knowing the Dr's full potential and the investment in doing so. I made the best decision based off of my research for about a year, Dr. James Rough won me over I don't leave many reviews but this was worth the time I am so stunned with Dr. Rough he is very professional, compassionate and understanding and has provided honest and gentle care his work is absolutely amazing a true artist indeed! The Anesteologist knew I was extremely nervous and said "oh this is my first time" I knew she was joking and it did help ease my mind because she managed to make me laugh she also placed that IV like a pro!!!! The nurses were all so comforting and treated me with the upmost respect Dr. Rough even did a courtesy call the same day my surgery took place to check up on me I could not fathom the outcome of my tummy tuck It has now been about a month 1/2 post surgery and the results are breath taking! Thank you Dr. Rough and all the staff who have contributed to my life changing experience for many years of hard work the loose skin still remained and is now completely gone! And to Anissa who has also done such an exceptional job as a patient care coordinator I truly love my results and I can't imagine what it will look like in 3-6 months from now I hope this review helps those searching for a surgeon they can trust if so Dr. Rough and all of the staff are magical : )"

"Dr. Rough did an absolutely amazing job on my breast augmentation. I was a 34D prior to pregnancy/breastfeeding and went to a small B. I was wanting to be back at a D cup and I got exactly what I wanted. They look so good and natural, I’m so in love with them! Dr. Rough and his entire staff took such great care of me throughout the whole process. He made me feel very comfortable and promptly answered any questions I had while home recovering. I highly recommend Dr. Rough!!"

"Dr. Rough and staff, Anissa and Priscilla, are a joy. I recently had my implant replacement surgery and couldn't be happier. The confidence, courtesy, professionalism and attention given to me by this practice is exemplary. I had realistic expectations about my outcome, but the surgery surpassed those expectations, all thanks to Dr. Rough. As an interpreter, I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Rough is a Spanish speaker. Thank you to everyone involved with my surgery and follow up appointments. Maria G Davis"

"Dr. Rough and his staff are amazing. He is without doubt the best plastic surgeon you can find. I waited years to make the decision to have a revision surgery. I have had an awful outcome from a previous surgery and it was a complex case. I consulted several surgeons and every time I was left feeling that my questions were not answered clearly and assertively. When I met Dr Rough, who was referred by another surgeon, all my doubts and fears were put at ease. After the initial consultation I knew he was going to be my surgeon. Dr Rough is caring and kind. He makes you feel comfortable, listens patiently and provides direct easy to follow explanations that show he is truly genuine in making the conversation about you. I never felt rushed and was encouraged to ask as many questions as I wanted until I was satisfied. He also makes it a point to understand your goals, walk you through realistic outcomes of different approaches and make you feel you are making informed decisions. Scheduling appointments and the surgery itself was very easy. Dr Rough's medical assistant, Anissa, is also very kind and attentive. They make the best team for all of your pre and post surgery needs. The surgery went exactly as he had explained and the results far exceeded my expectations. I can count on someone to always answer the phone and answer my questions. They are very responsive and always felt they were available for me. My recovery has been phenomenal due to Dr's high skills and experience. I'm so grateful to have met him and I can't be happier with my results. Dr. Rough is truly a gifted "artist" surgeon and I recommend him 100%.You will be in the best hands."

"If you are looking for a surgeon that is personable, kind and thorough, look no further!! Dr. Rough and his Nurse Anissa shared in my excitement both pre and post op!! I had a tummy tuck with lipo and really couldn’t visualize how it would look on me (because I was so used to jeans being uncomfortable and wearing anything I could to cover all of it), but felt confident that I was in the best hands possible. I was ready!!!! Dr. Rough was there when I woke up after the procedure, helped me to the car, called a couple hours later to check on me and was very attentive in all follow up appointments. The incision site is beautiful and not a thick scar like I have seen elsewhere. Due to excellent directions and guidance for proper garments, the swelling I have experienced has been minimal and I am already soooooo blown away by the absolute change in my midsection. I have a waistline again!! Thank you, Dr. Rough and Anissa!!!!!!!"

"I had a breast augmentation by Dr Rough and cannot say enough nice things about him, his team, and the excellent care I received. He has outstanding bedside manner and his compassion cannot be compared. He was always professional and made me feel comfortable and safe through the entire process. Going into the surgery I was considered a mild risk and we knew my healing might take a little longer than some of his other patients. Additionally I had a complication while under anesthesia due to my own bodies way of functioning which Dr Rough discussed with me at length when I woke up. I could truly feel his teams concern. That evening Dr Rough called my husband to see how I was feeling and the anesthesiologist Dr Taylor even called me the next day to check in. As the weeks passed Dr Rough continually asked me to contact him via cell phone if I had any questions or concerns between appointments, which I did several times as my healing was very slow. He was always willing and available to answer my questions and his assistant Anissa was always very kind and attentive. Dr Rough far exceeded my hopes and expectations. I'm over the moon excited with the outcome and will forever be grateful we chose Dr Rough to perform my long awaited surgery."

"Not sure how to fully express how compassionate and kind Dr, Rough is or how wonderful and personable Anissa is. What a team! I've never felt more at ease with a surgeon or any doctor for that matter. He is truly there for you, to listen, discuss and inform. I don't write a lot of reviews but feel so strongly that if anyone is looking for a skilled and empathetic plastic surgeon, no need to look any further. One of the things that people noticed about him after one of my surgeries last year was that when he came out of the operating room to talk to them about how my surgery went, he sat down...let that sink in a minute...he sat down and talked to them..he didn't stand over them and rush in and out. He is simply an amazing human who really cares."

"I met Dr. Rough through my oncology surgeon - on one day's notice! He and his team were able to fit me in to their schedule, & less than 2 weeks later, he and the other surgeon completed my surgery. Dr. Rough is thorough, asks questions, gains clarity, and finds out what I - as the patient - want or need and makes all of that an integral part of the discussion and decision-making. He has been extremely informative as the post-surgery follow-up has continued; this applies to the medications & prescriptions, what I can expect with pain & discomfort, what I can look forward to as I heal and the scars lessen, and he is ALWAYS ALWAYS approachable and available. Anissa, his Practice Manager and Assistant, brings yet another fantastic level of support and caring. Dr. Rough is an outstanding clinician, bringing education, knowledge, experience, and research to our appointments. I owe him and Anissa so much - and encourage you to absolutely consider him as your provider!!"

"Chose Dr. Rough as my doctor for my breast augmentation after visiting many other doctors for a consultation. He is absolutely the best. Got my breast augmentation at age 21 I asked for maybe a C cup and that’s exactly what I got. He also speaks Spanish which made my mom more comfortable as well. I’m 7 months post op and couldn’t be happier with my results."

"Dr James Rough and staff has been amazing from the beginning. Their professionalism is outstanding. I felt very comfortable from the beginning. It can be a stressful or at times intimidating when contemplating a surgery that will change so many things in your life and one self. After having a consultation, I didn’t have to think twice. Dr Rough and Rachel have been nothing but great with me. My results are amazing and I recommend this staff to everyone and anyone. I haven’t felt this happy about my self and I owe it all to this team. Thank you all so very much. All my Best, Rosina"

"I had a great experience with Dr. Rough during my injections of Bellafill to take years off my 55 year old face. I had multiple injections that filled out my face and removed my dreaded laugh lines around my mouth. I never thought that I would have received the results that I did with one visit. I had multiple people ask me after if I did something because they saw an improvement even though they could not pinpoint exactly what was changed. I loved that it was noticeable but subtle. Dr. Rough was so gentle and his expertise and perfectionist nature was obvious. I felt so confident in ability and highly recommend him to others. I am a very happy customer, thank you Dr. Rough!!"

"Dr. Rough was the obly plastic surgeon that made me feel like yhe patient came first. All The other doctors I had a consultation with didnt make mee feel as comfortable and as safe as Dr Rough. I got a breast augmentation from him and went from a 34a to a 32DD. The results were amazing, and the recovery was safe and easy thanks to my awesome doctor, I even had his personal number in case i needed him for emergencies any time of the day. I recommend to everyone!:)"
