"Dr Koenig, is an outstanding professional. He answered all my questions through the entire process. I'm now on my 4 week post procedure and I'm very pleased with the results so far. I was hesitant to have the procedure but his confidence helped me feel at ease. The entire experience has been flawless. Thanks to Dr Koenig and all the staff that I interacted with."
"Dr. Koenig is one of the most calm, caring, pleasant, knowledgeable & skillful MD's I've ever worked with. From the admin & support staff right to the doctors, the entire team is most welcoming and a constant source of reassurance."
"I felt safe going to Dr Koenig, for the reviews didn’t lie. He is well qualified and always asked if I had any questions. My results look great and I have gotten many compliments. I had another friend go to Dr Koenig as well and she loves her results! The Quatela center staff as a whole were so welcoming and answered any of my questions."
"From start to finish, Dr. Koenig and his staff exceeded all expectations!! I live in the Rochester area and researched Doctors for a few years, going to many consultations. As soon an I stepped into the Lindsay house, I knew I stepped into the right place. Consultation was amazing!! Dr. Koenig’s consultant Lauren was so easily to talk to and answered every single question I had, giving me all the time I needed, before and after surgery. Dr. Koenig used my photos during consultation to show me that lipo to the flanks along with outer thighs would give me the best results and I’m so glad I decided to do that, along with sutures to close my abdominal gap (due to 3 babies). Informational videos were so helpful and the paperwork to help with before and after surgery were great. Many appointments afterwards allow for Dr. Koenig to examine every detail. He also corrected my nipple as it was cracked due to poor latch during breastfeeding. He gave me a great deal and did this as an outpatient procedure. Seriously- look NO further! You will NOT be disappointed!"
"Wow! Dr. Koenig did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. He delivered exactly what I asked for. Highly recommend for natural results. He made me feel comfortable both during consultation & surgery day. His team did an excellent job as well making me feel comfortable & answered all my questions."
"My experience with Dr. Koenig and staff has been top of the line! The Quatela Plastic Surgery Center is elegant, warm and welcoming. It's soothing atmosphere puts you at ease the moment you walk through the door. All of the staff I came in to contact with were helpful and kind, but most of all, understanding of the great emotional burden I was carrying. Because choosing to have a cosmetic procedure can be scary! Luckily, with the help of Dr. Koenig and staff, I felt very comfortable with my decision, from beginning to end. At 4 weeks post op from a Tummy Tuck, I can say that I am extremely pleased with my results and highly recommend Dr. Koenig as a caring and experienced surgeon."
"I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Koenig 3 weeks ago and I am SO happy with my results!!! He is not only the best doctor with an amazing reputation, but he is so kind and calming. After breastfeeding two kids I was left with pretty significant asymmetry (one was very small and one was bigger and much more saggy/deflated). Dr. Koenig used two different size implants and I honestly don't know how he did it, but they look amazing and so symmetrical!! I would 1000% recommend him to anyone. I was terrified the day of surgery and he was so reassuring the last thing I remember before falling asleep was him telling me I was everything would be fine and that I was in great hands. He is the absolute best!"
"I am highly satisfied with the results of my abdominoplasty and liposuction I had done by Dr. Koenig at the Quatela Center. From my first appointment they made the experiences seamless and stress free, answered every question I had- and I had SO many, and the support staff that works with Dr. Koenig were incredible! My only regret is that I didn't do this surgery sooner!! While I train hard and was very fit going into the procedure, I always felt extremely insecure about my stomach because of all the loose skin and stretchmarks from very big babies. I couldn't be happier with my results. I am now 3 months post op and look and feel incredible!! Finally comfortable training in the gym without a loose shirt to hide my sagging skin, and I can't wait to wear a bathing suit for the first time in years this coming summer!"
