    From my first contact with the Skinworks office and throughout the whole process, Dr Carr and the Skinworks team have exceeded every expectation. It is easy to see why people travel to Vancouver to have Dr Carr work his magic. Not only is he an outstanding surgeon, he is down to earth and personable. I cannot say enough to praise him and his staff. The Best of the Best! Thank you!

    Dr. Carr performed the rhinoplasty surgery on March 12, 2013. The surgery is a complete success not only in the outcome, but in terms of the process from initial consultation, through the preparation, the surgery itself, and the follow-up and support. In fact, Dr Carr made himself readily available in the early hours of the morning two days after the surgery when I had an issue with a packing. He met me at the hospital to make sure that I was we’ll taken care. 

    Dr Carr and his staff deserve full recognition for their professionalism and their genuine care of their patience. A special note on Dr Carr who, in my opinion is an extremely skilled surgeon with the qualities of an artist for which this combination has proven to surpass my expectations.

    I am extremely happy with the results of my recent abdominoplasty. Dr. Carr reshaped my abdomen, sides and back. I dropped a full dress size. My pre and post op experience with Dr. Carr and his entire office and surgical staff was very positive. Dr Carr met with me twice before i booked the surgery to answer my questions and those of my family doctor. His post-op nurse met with me 6 times for scar management. I felt very well- cared for throughout the process.
