Dear Dr. Lovich, Heather R, Heather H, and Emily. Thank you all so much for the wonderful care you provided me with during my recent surgery and Dr. Lovich, thank you especially for giving me a new lease on life. 9/11/2018
Wonderful office staff, caring nurses, and good experience in spite of the procedure. Appreciated the follow up calls 9/5/2018.
Everyone was so kind and caring. Thank you, it calmed me, also the song that played “all is well with my soul” was perfect 9/1/2018
The fact that you seek patient reaction is unusual in my experience. My wife was very satisfied with Dr. Lovich’s skill and so am I. I always vet MD’s online. Two other plastic surgeons in Medford were entirely indifferent to my recovery. Your facility is immaculate! 8/2018
The staff was courteous and professional. I felt very relaxed while I was there 8/2018
Kelly’s commitment to my case was wonderful. I’m thankful Dr. Lovich took his time to understand my previous OP report and plan my repair accordingly 3/2018.

All the staff and the physician were professional and kind. The day of my surgery I was nervous about my procedure and the surgical nurses Natascha & Marje were caring and fun too!

Best tattoo removal in the valley. The staff are friendly and professional. Dr. Lovich does the laser tattoo removal himself with the best machine on the market. The pricing is excellent, you get a deal if you buy two sessions, and he even knocked a bit off the price for me after that. Dr. Lovich is professional and also helps during the laser treatment by chatting to take your mind off of the procedure. I have had amazing results! I had a large tattoo that has only had three treatments, and will maybe only need one more. I went to a consult with an aesthetician at a dermatology office and was quoted double the price of Dr. Lovich, and the laser treatment is not even performed by a doctor. I asked them why their pricing was not competitive and was treated rudely. In fact, they wanted to charge me $500 for one session of tattoo removal that Dr. Lovich quoted me $100 for because it had already had treatments. Definitely highly recommend Dr. Lovich for tattoo removal, I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
He is a very talented surgeon whom works with his patients to get the best possible desired results. 5/2019
They have a great team that care. I would recommend you come here for your needs. Thank you everyone at DR Lovich’s office for being so friendly & personable 👏👏 after 8 visits and 3 surgery’s I’ve grown to adore everyone here 3/2019
Dr. Lovich removed a lump from my forehead. I was worried that I would look like Frankenstein, but he assured me I’d be fine. The surgery didn’t hurt at all and I had almost no pain after the drugs wore off. The stitches were ugly for like two days, but a week after the surgery, I had no visible evidence that I’d had any work done. I can’t believe there is no scar at all! The whole experience was way better than I could have imagined. His staff was very friendly and highly professional. I heartily recommend these people. 6/2017
The staff is so professional and also very caring. Thanks to ALL for the great experience. Dr Lovich, you are amazing! Thank youvery much. 7/8/2019
Staff was very professional and pleasant! 7/11/2019
I had heard great things about Dr. Lovich from both my primary care Doctor and Son-in-law, who is an R.N. at RRMC. I strongly agree, I found Dr. Lovich to be professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. His staff are wonderful too! Everyone treated me with coutesy and respect. 7/15/2019
The staff was outstanding! Very polite, understanding, and courteous! 9/23/2019
The Valley Plastic Surgery team gave me the feeling of full confidence & professionalism. 9/25/2019

I had breast implant replacement surgery. I chose to be awake with only local. The staff and Dr. Lovich were warm, friendly, and even funny while maintaining professionalism. Dr. Lovich is a humble caring man who takes his time to communicate each step of the procedure while keeping his patient comfortable. In my opinion, he is a perfectionist and that’s a good thing! 5/7/2020
Thank you for taking such great care of me! 4/30/2020
You have the most efficient office I have ever been to in a long time. No waiting, you answered my questions, you listened to my concerns, and you were all very friendly and non-judgmental. I appreciate the Face-Time follow up appointment following my cancer removal, also, I can’t think of anything you could do better! Thank you
Friendly & professional doctor and staff put me at ease. Thanks for working during these times. God Bless & be safe!
Everything about Dr. Lovich’s practice is professional, which includes his staff. His surgical skill is superb! I welcome the way he shares his medical knowledge with his patients. He seems much at home in an informed world.
