Patient Reviews

  • "Wonderful service. Very dedicated Doctors."
      from Rose 5.0 Stars - (2024-02-22)
  • "Dr. Larsen was wonderful to work with! I came to him for his specialized work with sensation sparing during my double mastectomy. He worked with my plastic surgeon for the reconstruction and nerve grafting and my end results are amazing! I woke up with sensation and 2 weeks out I am noticing more coming back. Dr. Larsen was extremely knowledgeable and compassionate, he helped me feel comfortable every step of the stressful procedure process. I would recommend him to anyone needing a similar procedure, especially for his sensation sparing knowledge that unfortunately a lot of doctors are not able to do. It says a lot that I traveled from KS to NY to be able to have Dr. Larsen do my procedure and would 100% do it again!"

  • "Dr. Larsen saw me during one of the most stressful times in my life. He answered all my questions and comforted me. I instantly felt heard and calmer after our visit. Truly an amazing doctor!"
      from Micheli 5.0 Stars - (2024-02-14)
  • "On my first visit, I was incredibly impressed with Dr. Larsen. His kindness and compassion was evident from the minute the exam began. He took his time, didn’t rush the appointment and answered all of the (many) questions I had. Before leaving, he recommended seeing a plastic surgeon and within a half an hour, the other doctor’s office called me to book an appointment. That level of care cannot be found with all doctors."
