Patient Testimonials

I absolutely love my surgeon Dr. Derek Cody. I've already referred him and the Crystal Clinic to friends in NY, that are willing to travel just to have their cosmetic surgery done by him.

Dr. Cody explained procedure thoroughly. Very warm & calming experience in a scary situation of both doctor & nurses - would highly recommend.

Dr. Cody is always easy to talk and informative. He helped me to make important decisions after my breast cancer diagnosis and will always appreciate everything he did for me and the staff is always so friendly and comforting.

Dr. Cody is very skilled, professional, personable and caring.- Cyndi

I went to Dr. Cody in 08/21 for a breast reduction consultation. He was very knowledgeable and explained the entire process, including all potential issues. I immediately felt at ease after our efficient appointment. His scheduler, Judy, took care of my insurance issues and was great at keeping me informed the entire way. I went ahead with my surgery in 12/21. He was kind enough to schedule me the latest date possible due to my work schedule. The procedure was over within 4 hours total and I really am pleased with the results. I have immediately felt relief in my neck and back, and I look forward to seeing my final results once I am fully healed. I absolutely recommend Dr. Cody. He is a skilled and artful surgeon with a fantastic bedside manner.

Went to see Dr Cody for Melanoma, scared to death but by the end of the appointment he had me relaxed and glad I chose to see him instead of another Dr they tried to schedule me with a week later.- Theresa

My appointment with Dr.Cody was wonderful! He explained the upcoming procedure in detail and answered all of the questions I had. After all I've been through, he has restored the confidence I lost when I had the double mastectomy. He's great at his job, which isn't a job for him because of his passion! I would recommend him to any woman seeking a great plastic surgeon for breast reconstruction.- Artis
