I devoted over a year of my time and energy consulting with the known ""best"" doctors in the area. I had seven consults with other doctors before deciding on Dr. Mentz for rhinoplasty.

Dr. Mentz was patient with my ""perfectionist"" desires. Two surgeries later, I am very pleased with my results. I will definitely use the doctor in the future.

He has excellent bedside manner, in addition, he is triple board certified and his work is beautiful art. I will consider him a five-star plastic surgery expert!

I never met the doctor but had juvederm and botox administered by a very good nurse. I had a good experience and may consider Doctor Mentz for a facelift in the future.

One star is one star too many. I have been to this office for Dr.Mentz several times. Each time there is a 45 to 90 minute wait. Only to wait for the doctor another 20.

Dr. Mentz is friendly, but his work makes that void. I had major facial rejuvenation. My face was so ugly three, six and eight months post operation. Dr. Mentz is quick to take your money, but doesn't follow through nor apologize or make right with followup after.

The staff is rude, unprofessional and lazy from the moment you open the door to the office.

If you want good plastic surgery, I suggest you stay far away from this doctor's establishment.

I felt my wife was rushed after we waited three and a half hours after we were told to be there. He came in and just said hello for a few seconds before she went to surgery. The lazy, fake acting nurse then handed the I.V. bag to my wife to carry herself and walked ahead of my wife. I almost told them to forget it at that point. There was one blonde nurse who kept checking on us and the hispanic man who started her I.V. who seemed concerned. The post surgery care was very rushed also, I was working when my wife went in for that and it was the same rush job.

I went to Dr. Mentz four years ago to have a facelift, eye lift and liposuction. I had consulted with three plastic surgeons and I thought Dr. Mentz seemed very competent and caring, plus he was written up in one of the Houston magazines as the best plastic surgeon in Houston. I had a facelift 17 years previously and loved it. My surgeon did a great job. I also had liposuction 11 years previously and loved the results also. One of the reasons I chose Dr. Mentz over my other doctor was that Dr. Mentz said he would do everything at the same time. My other doctor wanted to do it in two surgeries. What a mistake!!! The other reviewers are right, in that you sit in the waiting room forever and you rarely see Dr. Mentz - after surgery, it is the physician's assistant. That was not my main concern. The day of my surgery, it was very, very late by the time he showed up. The real problem I have is the results. First of all, I had a bulge under my chin that looked horrible, he did not lift my jowls and my chin line looked awful. He had liposuctioned 18 pounds but my pant size did not go down. When I went in three days after the surgery he said everything looked great. After a few weeks, he was telling me how well everything was healing and how great it looked. I told him I was not satisfied with bulge under my chin, my jowls and my liposuction, plus my eyes were blood red because I had dry eye. He said he didn't know what caused bulge under my chin and didn't know why he didn't do my jowls and he didn't liposuction my butt because sometimes it sags. He said he could go in and do additional work but it would be $1,000 for the operating room and $1,500 to do the additional liposuction. This, after being out $30,000. He did do additional surgery and I still had the bulge under my chin. After he did the additional liposuction, I went from a size 12 to a size 6. Why didn't he do that the first time??? I told him I still was not happy and he went in a third time. I still am not happy with anything I have had done. It was a nightmare!!! Also, he took too much skin out from my lower lids, that I have suffered from dry eye ever since. My opthamologist said he needed correct my eyes, which he did do some work on them. It's been over four years and my eyes still get very dry because they don't close enough. I personally think he was running so late by the time he got to me and was in a hurry to finish and get home. From my experience, I would not recommend Dr. Mentz to anyone.

I had surgery about 3 months ago for puffy eyelids and kind of a saggy neck. Dr. Mentz and Lupe helped me sort out exactly what my issues were with an imager and measurements. My face, neck and eyes are recovered now after surgery. I had some eye dryness for about a month, as he warned me before surgery and he gave me special instructions and drops until it all went away. After all that I am happier with my face than I have ever been. Now I look younger and feel fresher. I did not have the easiest recovery since my eyes are dry, but Dr. Mentz knew how to guide me thru it. I pays to have experience and his work is fab.

I had my facelift about a year ago and Dr. Mentz has been a blessing all the way through. He coached me through the consultation, measured every millimeter of my face. the staff was great and took great care of me and when it was done, I felt renewed. All of my friends have had their facelift done now with him and all of them thank me. Thank you Dr. Mentz!!

I read reviews on Dr. Mentz, both good and a few really bad. I have to admit that concerned me. I had a great ""gut"" feeling the first time I met with Dr. Mentz and stepped foot in his office. He is very professional, smart and experienced. I met with him 2 more times before my breast augmentation and felt 100% comfortable going in to the surgery. I absolutely LOVE the results, I couldn't be happier. The surgery went so well, and all of the nurses and staff at the surgery center were terrific! Everyone was very professional and caring. Dr. Mentz is a perfectionist, so he strives to have he perfect result everytime. I would recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery!

Pros: Great results, professional, precise, detail-oriented

Cons: A little pricey, but worth it

.

I had older implants and a shape that had changed through the years. Dr. Mentz guided me through the difficult choices and allowed me to decide of exactly what direction to go. Their surgicenter is nice and the nurses were excellent. I was just happy that he was able to give me back some of my youth and I feel beautiful again. Thanks to a great surgeon.

Doctor Mentz has done liposuction and also a rhinoplasty on me. I'm very pleased with the results and look ten times better than I did before. I'm so grateful to him for making such a positive change in my life. I feel so much better about myself now. My sister just had surgery by him and is also very pleased!

Cons: parking garage.. don't like it

Caring staff, comprehensive care and experienced doctor. Dr. Mentz was wonderful. After visiting several deserted offices(scary), I found Dr. Mentz and his staff. The office was busy, but well coordinated. And best of all, he turned the clock back 15 years. Highly recommended.

I wish I had read these comments before I ever went to Dr. Mentz. First of all, on my intial consult I waited three hours, then 6k later, he made a mess of my nose. To top it off, I had my nose done before my wedding so I looked like some sort of freak in my pictures.\r
When the first bandages came off, it was a gasp...my nose was sunken in on the sides like some kind of Micheal Jackson nightmare, my mother was sick and about to cry, but trying not to scare me. Then after a year of useless steroid shots in the nose, (he said would make it ""open"" back up), the tip now has a ball on it, I NEVER had before and it is crooked where it wasn't before (it is still sunken in on one side after all those shots). I went back all those times, but he just acted like it would get better over time. What makes me the most angry and upset is that this was something he knows is NOT right and if I hadn't come back in all those times, he would have left it the was it was right after the bandages came off. I finally have just given up. He just sashays in and out of the room and is never on time and doesnt give a damn. A word to the wise and hind site being twenty twenty..... Please do not use this Dr. if you need a nose job or just EVER at all! Oh and I also have some sort of strange indention bruise thing between my eye he put there!!!

Pros: Flowers after the surgery

Cons: Unfriendly staff and terrible results

Since my surgery 3 months ago, my life has changed tremendously. When entering Dr. Mentz's office, you get the feel from the luxnurious surroundings, the seeminly caring staff, and Dr. Mentz himself that you are in good hands. It is so misleading for the quality of work that he performs. My face was ruined by him, and I was a good looking lady prior to my surgery. If he can't perform this work he advertises, then he should not be able to earn money by harming and disfiguring innocent people/victims. There should be some law against this kind of practice. I will never be the same. I have been a virtual hermit since he performed the surgery because I am so embarrassed and humiliated by the way I look. I am sure I could get him to try to correct some of it, but would you be willing to do that if he disfigured you so badly the first go round? He, his office, and his staff are all very deceiving. Anybody who has to advertise on Good Morning America commercials to get business should raise eyebrows (figuratively speaking). I am so sorry that I am not from Houston to get the word of mouth reviews about plastic surgeons. It is my hope that he write doctoral papers, teach somewhere, but get out of the business of disfiguring people. I would not be deceived by the good reviews because it is my guess, that Lupe wrote them. I've been to 3 other plastic surgeons for repair work, and ALL of them get his work to clean up. Be glad you had lipo done on your stomach because you can at least cover it up. Can't cover up your face.

Dr. Mentz messed my face and legs up......my face has been fixed thank god but now I am waiting to see what he does about my leg. If it is fixed and looks normal again I will be back here singing his praises but right now I am very unhappy and don't feel like he is taking my situation serious. I can't seem to get his staff to return my calls or get any face time with Dr. Mentz and I paid a lot of money and have serious corrections that need to be made. Be careful in consultation to ask and demand that you will be able to see and speak with your Doctor post-op whomever you see. I am feeling like a number in a plastic surgery factory like the before comment. Not happy.

Pros: The most amazing before/after photos on the websites

Cons: No real face time with the Doctor post-op!

Dr Mentz's office is a plastic surgery factory. If you walk in, pray you are not the one he will scar by his heavy handed surgery practices. It has cost me so far $5,567. to fix what he has done to my face & body so far. I have asked the Texas Medical Boards to look into Dr Mentz's plastic surgery factory because I believe medical judgment has expired in my case. I probably could not file a case against him nor do I think I could go threw a trial and bring up all the pain and humiliation I had to endure as Dr Mentz patient..\r
\r
I believe all these excellent reviews are written by his own staff members & not actual patience; so please take them with a grain of salt. When you go to Dr Mentz office you will wait 2 hrs for him and his waiting room is full he will spend only 20 min with you and that visit will not be about educating you but selling you things you don't need done.

I had a tummy tuck last year with Dr. Mentz and had almost no pain. He used a local pain pump, which he invented or was first to use(?) tomake my tummy numb and so there was almost no pain. My best friend had a tummy tuck with another very good plastic surgeon but almost talked me out of it because she hurt for two weeks. It was a breeze and I recommend Dr. Mentz highly. My scar is almost invisable now and my timmy flat. I had 3 children and can still wear a two piece. Do it!!

Abdominal Etching. I had a great experience with Dr. Mentz and his office. I arranged my trip through his office, flew in, saw Dr. Mentz and the next day had my Ab Etch, had a nurse stay with me in the hotel and left 3 days later with the six pack that I never had. It took about 4 weeks before jogging was comfortable, but weight lifting was OK in three days(Dr. Mentz said to wait 2 week though). If you have always been built but short of a six pack, wait no longer. Several of my friends are planning to do the same. There are local plastic surgeons here but their work is not comparable.

Dr. Mentz did it all for me. Ladies, if you are ready for your facelift, look no further. His staff was superb and his care was thorough. All of it, from the imaging, extensive consent, presurgery preparation, their surgicenter, overnight care, nursing visits, vitamins, home face mask machine, after care, fine tuning with injections and fraxil laser... this is how it should be done. Because of the care, vitamins and special facemask, my bruising was minimal and my recovery was easy. I returned to work in two weeks with 15 years erased. It is six months later and I have renewed confidence, the compliments keep rolling in and I just feel great. My facelift looks natural and soft. Dr. Mentz is remarkable!

Great office and staff, nicely organized and peaceful dispite being busy. Dr. Mentz was very nice and spent alot of time with me, offered me several options and explained the pros and cons. My surgery was for tummy tuck and liposuction and everything went perfectly, the surgery, overnight and recovery. The added extra really made my recovery easier compared to my sisters surgery with another doctor. Recommend highly.

Nice office, Dr. Mentz spent alot of time with me explaining my options, some were nonsurgical. My situation was difficult since I had three botched nose jobs through the years. Their surgicenter is private and complete with anesthesiologists. The most satisfying part was that i finally got the nose that I had been looking for. There are many plastic surgeons, but few with the experience and patience to fix tough problems, believe me, i went to more than 10 of them through the years and had three surgeries, before I found Dr. Mentz. Dont make the mistake I made and go cheep, you will pay for it in the end. You will love him and his staff.

Cons: somewhat more expensive but I should have gone to him first

Dr. Mentz and his staff were so caring and devoted. From the first visit, Dr. Mentz took his time to listen to me and instruct me on my choices. My tummy tuck surgery was not that painful and the nurses really took good care of me. One nurse came to my house for after visits twice, and the pain pump helped a great deal. Overall my surgery was perfect and I am back into my before pregnancy clothes. If you are looking for the right doctor for your tummy tuck, look no further.

My experience with Dr. Mentz and his office staff was excellent. The office was comfortable and the staff warm and friendly. It was a busy office and I waited 30 minutes for my first appointment. I had three breast surgeries in the past from another doctor and was unhappy with the results. At my first meeting Dr. Mentz took his time to explain that my situation was difficult and he answered all my questions. The surgery center was private and comfortable and in the end, my results were exactly what I was after. Experience does count and Dr. Mentz is the best.

My experience with Dr. Mentz and his office staff was excellent. The office was comfortable and the staff warm and friendly. It was a busy office and I waited 30 minutes for my first appointment. I had three breast surgeries in the past from another doctor and was unhappy with the results. At my first meeting Dr. Mentz took his time to explain that my situation was difficult and he answered all my questions. The surgery center was private and comfortable and in the end, my results were exactly what I was after. Experience does count and Dr. Mentz is the best.

I had lipo done last year and almost immediately I noticed something odd with my stomach. There was a big dent to the upper right of my belly button. I asked about this at my follow-up (after waiting an hour and a half) and was told it would get better in time. It didn't. He first said it looked like I had worn a belt when I was recovering. I had not worn anything that high up nor did I wear jeans at any time with a belt. \r
\r
Next time I go in I'm told that it is loose skin. I'm 30, I really don't have loose skin just yet and loose skin doesn't dent in like that anyways. \r
\r
I went back a year later to see if there was anything that he could do to fix it and now this time I was told it was where my natural bend of my body was (what?). Obviously he just won't admit he took too much out in that one spot and help me fix it. \r
\r
I'm just amazed how many dfferent excuses I've gotten for his obvious botched lipo. My stomach looks messed up now (almost like it's winking). I'm going to have to start looking for someone who hopefully can help me fix a very expensive screw-up. My bikini days are definitely over until I can get this embarrasing mistake corrected. It's very disappointing after spending that much money on this.

Pros: None that I can think of

Cons: Not willing to fix his mistakes

Talk about waiting for hours, people were leaving and the front girl was rude to people who asked how many more hour did they had to wait. I had Lipo done years ago so I thought I knew what to expect since the Dr at the time fully educated me before surgery. Dr Mentz staff did not, nor did they check if I was anemic at my first apointment, two day before surgery I tried to cancel since I was ill with head cold, they brought me in said I was fit for surgery, but I need to take Iron Pills since they tested me and saw I was anemic.I was not prepared at how hard my body would get and how many massages I had to have to be able to sit in a chair. They are in such a rush to over book appointment times I was left in a room once and brought in to a dirty room another time, the nurse ran in and out of the room throwing things in a bag, but never told me what it was for. My MD told me I was so anemic pills two day before surgery was not appropriate I should have been tested my first visit and than given pills to boost my Iron,surgery should have been postponed 6 mnth. I threw up for a week because of Dr M pushing me into surgery when I was not healthy. After care was a joke I inhaled soup all night and when I pulled the call button no one came. I was in pain but no one came to check on me or remove the tray all night long. I went to see one of his partner and the Dr refused to see me after the first time saying to go back to Dr M, there was no way I wanted to subject myself to that rude office staff again, but my husband took me.I asked Dr M if these scare would ever go away he said probably not,I cried all the way home,I never went back .To this day I have hard area from scares which my new Dr tells me is natural for second time lipo, but massages will break it up in time.If I was told this info by Lupo or Dr M I would not have gone threw with it. The positive post are done by Dr M office staff not by real patience. I would skip this Dr and go to someone who care about u

Pros: Nice office

Cons: They push you into surgery to pay for his nice office

I had such a positive experience with Dr. Mentz's office. If it were not for the caring and patient attitude of his staff and himself I don't know if I could have gone through with the surgery. It had been something I had thought about for years. I took the plunge and I am already so pleased with my new body.

I went to 3 plastic surgery consultations before I met Dr. Mentz. I am happy I did my research and I am very happy I chose Dr. Mentz as my physician. I found the consultation for my breast augmentation procedure to be completely educational. We went over all risks and complications. Dr. Mentz allowed me to choose my size and wanted to make sure I was comfortable and understood what the different implant sizes meant to me and my body. I am very happy with the size I picked and how I look in and out of clothes. To top off my experience my fiancee....is also thrilled with the results and I have received numerous compliments already!!! He deserves his impeccable reputation!!!! If needs arise where I need his services in the future I would absolutely visit his office again.

My experience with Dr. Mentz's office was above and beyond the best from the very first visit. Dr. Mentz was the fourth surgeon that I visited and I know I had found the right surgeon. After just one visit, it was so clear that the office was warm, professional, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and truly cared. The attention to detail was especially appreciated: from the thorough consultation, to the care package full of post-op necessities to help me heal, to the flower arrangement of roses sent home with me on surgery day, to the day ofter home visit by the nurse, to of course, the outstanding result I received from my surgery. It was all amazing. Before surgery, I never wanted to look people in the eye, and I surely did not want anyone to look at me. Also, my nose was always congested, and I sneezed several times every day. All day, every day my thoughts were constantly on my nose. Now I feel like my nose finally looks normal and I can breathe great. I can now put my focus more important things. Dr. Mentz is an exquisite surgeon and person and the staff is unparalleled.

Pros: Expert in facial surgery, one of the best in the country

Cons: price is on the high side, but similar for the experts in the field

.

I want to ""Thank ALL"" of Dr. Mentz staff for being so good to me \r
during my experience. Lupe, Dora, Diane, Cathy, Carrie, Hope, etc. \r
If I didn't mention your name, it's not b/c I forgot you, but b/c I just \r
can't remember everyone's names. \r
From the moment I walked into the reception area, I was treated kind \r
and with respect. Lupe knew what I needed and made me feel so good. \r
Dora took care of the post-care, she's more of a Physical Therapist, \r
than a Massage Therapist. \r
Even up to the checkout, everyone and I mean EVERYONE always was \r
so nice, kind, and supportive of me. \r
Above all I'd like to ""Thank"" Dr. Mentz. I picked him b/c I heard he was the Best. \r
Dr. Mentz is not only a wonderful plastic surgeon, but he's also an artist. \r
He took a 53 year old woman, that no matter how much she \r
walked was never going to be any shape other than a ""box"". \r
Dr. Mentz transformed me into a shape that quite frankly, was ""Priceless"". \r
Dr. Mentz is a true professional in every way, but he's also a Dr. that \r
listens to the patients, and actual makes their dreams come true. \r
Dr. Mentz is the BEST, and will always be one of my ""Favorite People"". \r
Again, thank you all! \r
Thank you

Pros: More than I ever expected

In all my glory...thank goodness for Dr. Mentz,for all his help during this long journey to get where I am today. Not to forget Lupe, who was fantastic throughout my life changing process. I want to thank both for making my self esteem rise and my dreams come true. I am more outgoing and positive toward life these days and I want to workout and keep up the the good work Dr. Mentz did for me and for this I want to thank them both from the bottom of my heart.

Pros: credentials ( three boards), great office and staff, comprehensive

Cons: busiest practice in Houston

.

First off - I want to say what an excellent job I think Dr. Mentz did on my face and my body. My friends and family all are amazed at how natural and youthful I look. I am ever so thankful that I found him and it is because he is such an amazing person that he is an amazing doctor. Dr. Mentz has a gift in the way he makes people look, but more importantly how he makes people feel. The staff is great! I truly believe that his staff is one of the reasons that his practice is as successful as it is. My first encounter with Dr. Mentz's office was with Lupe. I was apprehensive during my initial consultation, but my fears were soon put to rest. Lupe is extremely knowledgeable about the type of surgery I had. I ended up having so much fun with the imaging. I have to say, the imaging is one of the reasons I chose him as my doctor. It was great to actually see what I was going to look like. Of course, I was realistic but I had no idea I would be this happy with my results. Lupe is a wonderful asset to the practice. The nurses are caring and easy to connect with. There seems to be a lot of happiness and laughter in the office. My calls were promptly returned and I was always reassured that I was going through was normal. I received excellent care while staying overnight in the surgical center. I was never left alone and felt like I was safe and in good hands. I can't say enough about the special attention and care I received from the overnight staff. They really took care of my every need and were by my side the whole night They asked me if I was in any pain often, fed me dinner, ice chips, and talked to me until I fell asleep. It was better than going to a spa!! I would recommend Dr. Mentz to anyone. Every single penny was well worth the comfort and the outcome of the surgery.

Pros: Popular surgeon, great work

Cons: May have to wait for the best

I got my lipo 3 years ago with that man and I still cringe when I think about it. I paid him $7000 to destroy my body and have already shelled out another $25,000 to correct what he did. I think he is overhyped and he is greedy. He made me wait 2 1/2 hours for my follow ups and when he waltzed in he told me it turned out good considering what he had to work with and waltzed back out. I guess that it was my cue that it had gone wrong.If he didn't think my skin could handle it he should have turned me away, he is the doctor.I had no idea .I wished I never had met him and it makes me sick that there are people out there with no regard for anyone or anything except for the mighty dollar.

Pros: What pros?

Cons: Everything

Dr. Mentz is board certified in several areas. After checking with the authorities, it appears that he was the first in the United States to achieve all of these board certifications. I called to confirm his credentials and he has the most impressive resume and track record of experience. \r
\r
By reading his website and some of Dr. Mentz's Journal articles, I soon learned that Dr. Mentz is also the inventor of Abdominal Etching and an inventor of some modified Facelift techniques. Thus, he has the most up to date experience. When I had my facelift and my liposuction, I was certain that I wanted a Board Certified surgeon with ENT and facial surgery experience. Well, much to my suprise, Dr. Mentz is an ENT Plastic Surgeon, which made me feel very safe. \r
\r
Anyway, after researching online with Lexis Nexis and investigating Dr. Mentz's background, it appears that he holds all of the credentials, board certifications, and licenses that they say to check for It was my patience, diligence, and research that allowed me to make the decision to go with the best and safest surgeon. \r
\r
The end result is that I achieved my objectives, and have the look that I wanted. Now, I receive compliments almost every day and people don't know exactly what I did. It's my little secret.. Dr. Mentz's staff and patient coordinators really held my hand through the whole thing and provided the comfort and VIP service that I deserved. I can't say enough about the kindness, professionalism, and safety standards of Dr. Mentz and his team.

Dr. Mentz - Amazing Surgeon and Staff.\r
\r
I did my research and homework, and Dr. Mentz is the most well published and credentialed plastic surgeon in the United States. I demand safety, experience and board certification, and I was willing to pay a little more for the best doctor. After I had my liposuction, I recovered in about 3-4 days. Within a week, I could see the fantastic results of my flat tummy and ab muscles. Also, from my research, I found that he was the most experienced in the world with Abdominal Etching. Thus, I was glad to have my stomach turned super youthful again and my breasts taken from a size A to a Full C Lovin It\r
\r
Although the wait seemed long and was nearly 8 weeks to have the surgery scheduled, it was worth it. My friends are so jealous and my husband is beaming with pride... Sometimes we have to wait for the best, and I didn't want to settle for less. Sure, I could have got a cheaper surgery, but Dr. Mentz's track surgery record for 20+ years was impeccable and clean as a whistle.\r
\r
I do know that the other cheaper doctors who were NOT triple board certified tried to offer me discounts and get me into surgery the next day. However, I asked around town before making this important decision and the overwhelming consensus was that Dr. Mentz is the best.\r
\r
I am so glad that I went with Dr. Mentz. Furthermore, there are many rumors that people from Hollywood, London, New York and all over the world fly in to see him because of his top reputation for facelifts and abdominal etching. I feel like a member of a secret society :)\r
\r
I generally don't write recommendations, but the success and results were so wonderful that I could not resist. If you dont believe me, go to Dr. Mentz's websites to read &review photos WOW\r
\r
Overall, I give Dr. Mentz a 10 out of 10 because of his safety, professionalism, super staff, bedside manner, and he even looks like Brad Pitt which is an extra treat for the ladies.\r
\r
All the Best, Prissy

$100 for the consultation and I was impressed. $4500 for ab and flanks lipo. After surgery, I was in terrible pain from dark bruising on my chest and shoulder blades and couldn't understand how those areas were injured when the procedure was performed on abdomen and waistline. Found out from the visiting nurse who told me the bruising was the result of being pushed down on the hard, unforgiving metal operating table during the procedure. I wish I had been given a local anesthetic so that I could have witnessed my treatment.\r
\r
After a rather, in my opinion, long recovery period (3 - 4 months), my waist was definitely more defined but there were unsightly lumps where Mintz apparently missed using the cannula to remove the fat cells. Because of my age, he recommended I have a full tummy tuck but I chose to have only the lipo and take a chance with having sagging skin on my middle. Well, the elasticity of my skin did not let me down even at the age of 60 plus and the only unattractiveness were the lumps that he failed to remove.\r
\r
From the time of the procedure (November, 2003) to present (August, 2007) I have experienced a numbness and discomfort in the area on my right side below the waist. I must assume that there is nerve damage and will question my gasteroentologist at my next appointment with him. I am under his care for Hepatitis C for which I was diagnosed in November, 2004; the virus believed to have been passed to me via tainted transfusions during complicated, childbirth which resulted in a stillbirth and my almost bleeding out in 1965.\r
\r
Summary: In my opinion, Mintz may have been a competent surgeon at some point but has become desensitized to the desires and needs of his patients. He seems to care more about getting his patients in and out as quickly as possible and getting paid for it. In my opinion, his work is careless and sloppy.

Pros: Lovely offices, great post procedure visiting nurse and referred hired private nurse

Cons: price, actual procedure

I agree with the previous review.. ONE STAR IS TO MUCH FOR THIS JOKER ! Unfortunately, I was sucked into his ""posh"" offices, fancy website, etc.. He acts like he cares, but after he has gotten your money & performed surgery he doesn't have time for you & makes you wait for hours for follow ups, etc.. After all, I'm sure his time is much more valuable than mine.. WHATEVER !! I had a problem with my breast augmentation and when I ""attempted"" to bring this to his attention he would NOT take responsiblity for it. After I have already spent $7,000 for the initital surgery, he would be happy to perform a ""revision"" but at my expense ! His staff doesn't return phone calls either. Lupe is a joke !! She's all nice as long as you have money to give, but once that has been taken care of she never returns your calls. I feel very sad & angry that I trusted Dr. Mentz . He couldn't care a less about me as a person/patient enough to do the right thing & fix what he screwed up ! Aparantly, he takes no pride in his work. I now have to find another doctor to fix his very sloppy work. UNPROFESSIONAL AND LACKS COMPASSION !!

I agree with the previous review.. ONE STAR IS TO MUCH FOR THIS JOKER ! Unfortunately, I was sucked into his ""posh"" offices, fancy website, etc.. He acts like he cares, but after he has gotten your money & performed surgery he doesn't have time for you & makes you wait for hours for follow ups, etc.. After all, I'm sure his time is much more valuable than mine.. WHATEVER !! I had a problem with my breast augmentation and when I ""attempted"" to bring this to his attention he would NOT take responsiblity for it.

Pros: Nice Office

Cons: Doctor's work, makes you wait for hours, doesn't care !

Giving this schmuck even one star is too much. The only positive review must have been written by his cackling ""patient coordinator"" Lupe, whose main purpose is to steal your money. He is plastered all over the internet, with an awesome website, and advertises in several local mags. You would think he was good. If a doctor is THAT good, he would not have to spend so much on making you think that he is. HE IS A FARSE!! I went to see Dr Mentz for a breast reduction, and he talked me into a breast augmentation. He said I would get a better result with less scarring. I was pretty droopy at a 36D. Looking back, he probably had no idea how to perform a breast lift. I am sure it requires much more expertise, of which he has NONE> He never discussed my future size or showed me pictures of his results. Lupe flashed me her breasts, and he said mine would look better. HA!! My breasts are grotesquely huge now. 34F. They are droopier than ever. I look ridiculous. He even went under the muscle, which is a big no-no for saggy breasts. I found this out AFTER surgery, from my research. I assumed I was going to the best, and he DEFINITELY is not. He spent a total of 5 minutes with me before surgery, never really assessing my needs. He couldn't care less what they were. I went back to him several times to complain, and he wanted no part of fixing the problem. I asked him if he would like my before and afters to be used as representations of his work, and he said no. He offered no compensation. In my opinion, he is an awful surgeon who relies on excessive advertising to rip off his patients into believing he is some sort of hot shot. STAY AWAY GIRLS> HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING!!! Overpriced too. I am looking to get another surgery soon to correct his errors. $6K is alot to have lost from this so-called surgeon's lack of ability.

Cons: Lacks expertise, Lacks compassion, Money hungry, overpriced, POOR WORKMANSHIP

I would not recommend Dr. Mentz. He is over priced & never on time. The most expensive compared to other surgeons for breast aumentation. I had to schedule a whole day for his appts because he was always behind. I went to him because a friend of mine who is in the beauty business told me he was the BEST and she had several ""respectable"" clients who used him. Needless to say I was very unhappy with the outcome of my breast augmentation. I was very unsure about size. No one would offer any help. Just a mirror & samples! My friends told me their doctors offered advise based on body shape, told them to bring shirts, showed them pictures, bring a friend and took measurements. None of this was offered with Dr. Mentz or his staff. I didn't even know about these suggestion til AFTER surgery! When I expressed my unhappiness to Dr. Mentz he said he no longer advises patients on size and told me I should have gone up to a bigger size AFTER MY SURGERY! Then he left the exam room because his wife was calling him. I am now researching other surgeons to have the procedure done again because I'm still basically the same size I was before surgery just $7,000 less in my bank account!

Pros: Certifications and Experience

Cons: Not informative, No bedside manner, Price

I went to Dr. Mentz because I have seen some beautiful work of his. I got lipo and he took WAY to much fat out so I looked like a sharpei until I got a hip/thigh lift with a tummy tuck. My stomach now looks like modeling clay. I realize that I was heavier at one time and my skin was bad but He, as a surgeon should have been more careful or He should have turned me away. He didn't have to go crazy with it. I think he picked lots of areas because it ups the price. After my surgery, I was left in my room for 2 hours after my appointment time for the follow up visit. I am so upset now 3 years later because I feel disfigured and now am in alot of debt because I had to fix what he has done.

Pros: The nurse they send afterwards

Cons: Horrible results, long waiting times in the office

.

His work and quality are remarkable. I believe he is the best in Houston! He even has a nurse come to your home the day after surgery to check up on you. I haven't heard of any other plastic surgeon who offers that service. The waiting room has two computers with internet access, snacks, refrigerated drinks and a huge plasma TV to keep you entertained while you wait. Dr. Mentz is so nice and funny and he goes the extra mile to make sure you are well taken care of by everybody on his staff. Go to him. He's the bomb.
