"Had a procedure done yesterday, im a very anxious type person to begin with, and everyone was reassuring when I arrived and treated me like a VIP. Dr. Nuveen was awesome, very personable, and listened to all my concerns. The nurses and rest of the staff took get care of me, Lauren, Nathania, and the young lady at reception (can't remember her name, if your reading this I apologize hun). I'll deffonately be going back in the future. Highly reccomend for any services they offer. Thanks again Dr Nuveen for the great experience!!!"



"Dr Nuveen and Dr Caplin are so incredibly talented…would never go anywhere else!"



"Dr.Caplin and Dr.Nuveen work as a team. They are genuine, kind and fully available during the entire process. If you are looking for a mommy maker over or body lift the combination of the two surgeons allows you to get more done at one time. I strongly recommend this duo if you are looking for any surgical cosmetic procedure. You will love them both!"



"I love him and his staff. So, it was the ice storm of 2021. It was last minute if any of us could actually get there. Absolutely insane! I was informed if I could get there we could do the surgery. I showed up and was obviously so freaked out and nervous about my surgery that I ate an egg for breakfast. Not what I was instructed to do. I felt like a total entitled *****. The staff and surgeon is there in a snow/ice storm and I ate. They were so nice. They called me later because we all had to go home and hope we made it because of the treacherous conditions. They moved clients around and were able reschedule me for the next day (I don't live in OKC). Dr. Nuveen came in before surgery and was so empathetic. His bedside manner is like no doctor I've ever met. I've waited so long to write a review because I wanted to make sure that the healing and settling comments were accurate (I'm also a little late than I needed to be). I am soooooo pleased with my lift. He did an amazing job! I am so happy and will go to him for anything I may need in the future."



"Everyone at CSA is extremely friendly. The surgery went seamlessly. Their client services are excellent. I was given the doctor’s and nurse practitioner’s number to call or text if I had any concerns or questions. The response time for answering my texts was close to immediate. I have never been to a medical office with such wonderful employees."
