I was very impressed with how prepared Dr. Tolan was for my appointment. While I hadn’t seen him in years (8-10) and I didn’t remember my own history, he took the time to review my incident and spoke very knowledgeably about my patient history, even providing pictures documenting my last visit. He clearly outlined my options, and explained the potential surgery process, which was helpful. He was professional, personal, and instrumental in guiding me to making an informed decision. I am comfortable getting surgery under his care.

I was recently in for face fillers and botox, performed by Dr. Griffin. I have been simply astounded by the results. My closest family and friends just keep telling me I look great, but not one of them knows I had work done unless told. Dr. Griffin is an artist, pure and simple, and has the best bed-side manner. I am thrilled with the results and the experience. Never felt better. I am so happy with the results.

I am loving the results! My best friend of 35 years told me that I look so relaxed and younger since I retired. She does not know about any of the procedures I’ve had. Everything is great, the filler for my tear troughs is something I will want to do again. I can’t thank you enough!!!

I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Tolan and the Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Skincare staff for the reconstructive surgery for my husband. Your team was a Godsend. My husband and I have been married for 28 years and have four kids. He’s always been a confident man, but occasionally I would see him become so self-conscious about his cleft lip and nose it tore at my heart. I know it pained him. This never happens anymore. It’s been over a year since his first initial surgery and I’ve wanted to share with you how much I appreciate you helping others to see (at least physically) what I’ve always seen (spiritually) about my husband…the wonderful handsome man he is! I know he views you as a dear friend and incredible doctor. Thank you for sharing your God given talent.

I love the results. Love them, love them, love them. I am going to get the peels and Botox from Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Skincare for as long as I live. Wonderful. FIVE STARS! LOVE IT!

Dr. Griffin was amazing. I had a substantial reconstruction after skin cancer on my nose, 6 weeks after having my second child. I was so nervous and anxious- overall just a complete wreck. However Dr. Griffin and his staff were always calming and reassuring. I am one to ask a lot of questions, and each time I felt I was listened to, and given an honest answer (even if it wasn’t what I wanted to hear). Putting my trust in Dr. Griffin was a great decision and the outcome has been fabulous. I would recommend Dr. Griffin to my closest friends and family. Thank you all for everything.

I really cannot believe I have a doctor that cares enough to personally email and call me. I apologize for missing my appt. It truly was accidental.

I meant to write to you earlier, but then time marched on. I don’t know if I’ve been good at telling you how fortunate I feel that I was referred to you… so I want to do that now.

When I first came to see you after the Mohs, your nurse told me you were very detail-oriented and would not be satisfied until everything was the best it could be. I spent the weekend trying to process the options you had laid out. Your calm demeanor at the office kept me strong. The day after surgery, when I took off the bandage, I was seriously devastated. But I kept telling myself you said I needed to give you 6 months. During my next visit, you told me you still had my pictures all over your floor from trying to figure out what to do. It didn’t even matter if it was true. You made me feel like I was important and you had put forth a great deal of effort when making the plan. The scar has continued to improve. While I wish it wasn’t there, it’s truly miraculous what you accomplished.

And then you created a nose from my rib. How cool is that?! I’m only stretching my nostril maybe once a day. My nose is solid. It stabilized the contracting pull on my cheek; I no longer have to stretch it and my oral range of motion is back to normal. It feels great to have a real nose that can breathe.

Between the hole on my face and my awkward nose, your enormous skills are obvious to everyone who sees me. But it’s even more than that. You’ve gone above and beyond the typical standard of care. Your compassion and thoughtfulness have gotten me through a relatively small, but significant loss. And the older I get, the more difficult it is to “give things up”… things that I never knew were that important to me, or that I assumed would always be ok, or that have gotten worse, no matter what I do. Who sings something about you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone?

So, Dr. Griffin, I am incredibly grateful to you for all you’ve done to make this easier for me.
