Dear Erica

I was thanking Patrice for sending me all my products and the lovely goodies that were included, when she informed me that it was you who was responsible for it all. So I want to thank you, Erica, for being so kind and generous. It was a wonderful surprise to receive so many fun and valuable coupons. It is surely appreciated! And I can’t wait to be able to take advantage of them and to thank you in person!

With gratitude and warmest regards


Thank you for your kindness & generosity!


Dr. Stevens, Patrice, and Staff,

Just two small words to express so much gratitude. All of you have been so nice and made me feel so at ease and comfortable with my entire experience. This is a small token of my sincere appreciation and warmest thanks to all of you.



Dear Dr. Stevens, Sheri, & family,

I feel so fortunate this year! Thank you so much for adopting me & making me a part of MPSA!

I love the energy & I’ve learned so much! Someone told me years ago, that Marina Plastic Surgery is the most prestigious office(s) I could ever work at. They were absolutely correct & I love it!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season & Thank you for everything!


Dr. Stevens,

I can’t say thank you enough for your patience with me. I don’t know what would of happened with me if you didn’t keep trying. I was really worried wondering how I could live in that pain.

Thank you for taking great care of me!!

Thank you
Thank you
Thank you!!

Dr. Stevens-

I am gorgeous thanks to you! My neighbors thank you also! You and your staff i.e., Patrice, Maria, Christina, Charlie, etc are terrific and you made my dreams come true. All my friends say I look fabulously young. Thank you!!


Dear Dr. Stevens,

Just a note to apologize for being so negative when you asked if I was excited. I am anxious to get “fixed.” I am also glad I have “the best”. You said that Dr. Halloway was the best and Jeramie said that YOU were the best. I can’t ask for much more than that! I am attaching your nickel but I reserve the right to change my mind after the surgery… : ) HAHA. Thanks for using your skills and talents to “fix” me.



Dr. Stevens, Charlie, & Staff

You’ve been so nice that words can’t say the many thanks this brings your way. Your beautiful floral design brightened up my day. Thank you for your thoughts and love. See you Tuesday, May 6.

God Bless


Dr. Stevens,

Thank you and your professional team for making my “fly-in” experience wonderful! I look forward to seeing you again in the Spring.


Dear Grant:

I just wanted to thank you again for the facial. I went this morning and it was absolutely fantastic! Ann was wonderful and extremely informative. It was a wonderful experience and very generous of you. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!


Dear Dr. Stevens,

Wishing you a Merry Christmas filled with joyous moments and happy memories! And thanking you again for your miraculous magic … enclosed a picture for my 60th birthday.

With fondness,


Dr. Stevens,

I just wanted to personally thank you for taking such wonderful care of my mom. I knew confidently that she could not be in better hands. She was absolutely thrilled with your care and truly feels that her surgery could not have gone better. Thank you, again, for your time and meticulous care.



Thank you for everything! I am thrilled!


Dear All,

I trust you are all well. I’m improving daily and I feel fab. I’ve started working on my scars this week.

As I mentioned in my much earlier email to Patrice I would like to repeat my thanks to you all for your welcome, concern, and advice and care before, during, and after my surgery.

The entire team was friendly, informative, frank and helpful which made my time as a fly-in patient as comfortable as possible.

Thanks again Dr. Stevens, Charlie, Patrice, Maria, Sally, Tammy, Lindsay, Andrea and others that I may not have communicated with as much.

With many thanks and best wishes,

Dr. Stevens,

Today is July 5, which means it has been exactly four months since my operation. I can’t believe how fast time has gone since I moved out here to L.A. I would have never believed that two months after I moved out here, I would be getting plastic surgery. Even now, I still can’t believe it! I also can’t believe how much my life has changed since the surgery. Four months later, not only have I recovered 100 percent, but I look and feel 200 percent better! My whole outlook on life has changed, I try to make meaning with my life everyday I wake up. Planning on entering a health occupation myself, I always enjoy meeting and seeing the way other doctors work. I have shadowed dozens of doctors in their professional setting and have never met a doctor that takes such personal interest in the well-being of his or her patients the way you have. You are a unique asset to the medical community, and I can only hope that my story on Discovery Health (airing July 21, 9:00PM) will eliminate some of the negative stereotypes associated with plastic surgery, the same stereotypes I faced back home when I told my friends and family. Interestingly enough however, I just found out my aunt is planning on a tummy tuck. Well, I just wanted to let you know my life has forever changed for the better and I am forever indebted to your generosity. May God bless you, your family and your staff!


A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.

Thanks Dr. Stevens and all you wonderful gals for taking such good care of us. You’re the best.

D and C

Dr. Stevens & Staff,

I’ve thanked God everyday since I met all of you and my dreams became a reality. I truly believe that this “Mommy Makeover” was meant for me. A gift from God, delivered through your talented hands; So I hope you and your staff receive 10 fold the happiness and joy I’ve received since meeting all of you.


Dear Dr. Stevens and Staff,

Thank you for giving me my “life” back. You have made me feel like a new person. I can hardly wait to shop at Victorias secret for the first time in my life.


Dear Dr. Stevens – Charlie

Thank you both for my gift. May God hold you both in the palm of his hands always & bring something new to you. I will see you then.

With Love

A patient and friend


Dear Dr. Stevens

Thank you for being so artistic and technical and sweet-

Yours is one good soul


Dear Everyone,

I hope you all enjoy this special time of the year. I am truly greatful for finding and using all of you to my advantage.

I loook and feel great and I owe a large amount of that to all of you.

I know I will be seeing you again in the near future and again thank you for helping me look as great as I feel !!

Merry Christmas
and enjoy the holidays!

DB and Family

Dr. Stevens

Merry Christmas and thank you for everything, especially looking after me during the filming process. I know I’m just one of hundreds of patients, but you really made a difference in my life & changed if for the better.



Dr. Stevens, Patrice, Sally and Staff:

Thank you for making my new breast experience a wonderful one. everyone has been great. Happy New Year.


June 14, 2002

Dear Dr. Stevens,

Words cannot express the gratitude felt in my heart and sould for your kindness, compassion and artistry.

Love and Light,


Dear Dr. Stevens,

I just want to say thank you for enhancing my life. Three months after the following surgery I feel wonderful. The cohesive gel implant was a great choice for me. They feel very soft, and my breasts look extremely natural.

Doc, I can’t thank you enough. You and your staff have made me a new woman.

I am thrilled wih my results.

Thank you…

Thank you…

Vivian and Family

Dear Dr. Grant Stevens & Staff,

It has been almost 3 months since my surgery, the first couple of weeks were a little touch. At the 2 month mark I felt much better, I was able to get back to my normal routine.

I am very happy with the results, my breast are exactly the shape and size as I desired! And the scars keep fading, I can barely see them anymore.

I would recommend this surgery to any women – of course only done by you Dr. Stevens!!

Thank you for your professionalism and excellent quality of my procedure!!

Hope you have a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!


My new “D” breasts put a smile on my squeaky clean face. Thanks so much for the wonderful and thoughtful facial gift you provided. It was much appreciated.


Dr. Stevens

Thank you for the EXCEPTIONAL JOB you did for me with my Breast Augmentation.

I’m so happy!!
I love them!!
Cindy L.

Dr. Stevens,

This is actually a thank you card for the beautiful body you have given me. This summer has been so much fun with the new “top” part.

You do great work Dr. Stevens. I hope to send some friends your way soon.

I looked for you and your wife at “Taste of LA”!

Hope you had a great summer, even without the sun.

A happy patient,
Cathy F.

Dr. Dr. Stevens,

Thank you again for the gift certificate to Café del Rey you gave me last Friday when I was in for my follow up. We had a great lunch break before heading home to San Diego.

Thanks for making my breast lift/reduction “experience” so easy. You and your wonderful staff (especially Patrice and Maria) are the BEST!

There must be 100 plastic surgeons between San Diego and LA, but I would choose you again – in a HEART BEAT!

Toni A

P.S. Saw you the other night on “Extra”!


Dr. Stevens & Patrice,

I wanted to thank you both for taking such good care of me before, during and after my surgery. I cannot describe the change in my life since my reduction procedure. Dr. Stevens, I hope God continues to bless your hands – this surgery is truly a gift! Thanks!

I think you will be pleased to see how I’ve healed when I return for my one-year follow up in October.

A special thanks to Patrice and Charlie for their special attention – you have a great staff.

Thanks again –
Michelle S.

Dr. Grant,

As usual, you have treated Ailene and I like movie stars. We were incredibly pampered and loved every minute of it! If we should ever have a similar evening, you should have us come up one at a time while you refer to the photos and then back to us. That particular space at the podium would have to be carefully lite. Just an idea, Grant. I know you always welcome feedback.

You really handled a most challenging group handily. Your mother, Ailene and I just sat there in horror when some of the characters came to life.

We are very proud of you and thank you for taking such good care of us!


S and Ailene (of course)

Dr. Stevens,

Thank you for caring.

With gratitude and love,


Dear Dr. Stevens…. and all of your great girls,

Just a note to thank you again for the beautiful floral arrangment. Almost two weeks later and I am still enjoying several of the stems.

You ar such a special group of people – it is always a pleasure to walk into the office. Fondly,



Dear Dr. Stevens, Charlie, Amanda and Staff,

Thank you so much for all of your hard work in getting the insurance company’s authorization. You guys are the best and I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am with the outcome of the surgery. Thanks for everything,


“How did you get so good at making people happy?”

Dear Dr. Stevens,

I thank you and your staff very much for being so nice and doing a great job.

see you soon,


Dr. Stevens,

Thank you for taking such good care of me.

I hope your daughter enjoys these Disney stories and music.



Dr. Stevens,

Thank you for your “art-work” performed on Leah. Also, for your generosity in accepting whatever payment is made by Insurance Company. However, as it turned out payment in full has been made by both Ins. companies.

Once again, I thank you for your services and to your office staff for being so helpful. (Between you and me that was one of the factors that made Leah choose you.)

If you can use my volunteer services, please call on me.

Mrs. R


Dr. Stevens,

Thank you so very much for really changing my life for the better. I feel truly complete, thanks to your miracle workings. You are an incredibly generous person and very talented doctor. You are very professional and made me feel very comfortable and that helped. I am very pleased.

Thanks again,


Dear Dr. Grant and Staff:

On May 12th, I had a consultation at the Palos Verdes office. I must say I was very impressed with Dr. Grant Stevens’ consultation, and not to forget to mention the follow up with Charlie Sheridan. Everything was very thorough. The staff was very warm and friendly. The same holds true for the Marina Del Rey office, they were very helpful when I called to make an appointment. If I decide to follow up with the consultation, I definitely would use Marina Plastic Surgery Associates Medical Corporation.



Dr. Stevens and Staff,

Thank you so much for the amazing job you have done on my breast reduction. Your office is so organized and professional and I felt so good knowing I was in great hands. I love my “new” look and feel so refreshed! I am very motivated to change my lifestyle and trim down. You are a wonderful Dr.!! I have sent my friend to you and plan to refer many more people to you. Thank you so much? you have changed my life! I look forward to seeing you in the future.


Dr. Grant Stevens,

“In everyone’s body, there is a flower ready to be born”.

I would love to thank you and your staff for the great support and kindness. From the time I heard you talk at your seminar, I knew that you were the doctor for me.

Your staff is kind and patient to all questions and billing. You have been taking care of me from the first day we met. Your smiling face and outgoing personality have been enjoyable. I would highly recommend Marina Plastic Surgery Associates Medical Corporation-Dr. Grant Stevens.

Pictures never lie. The change in my body is great. Even at eleven weeks, I can see the changes. I have no regret of any of the choices that I have made to help my appearance in my body. I will be back.



P.S. Your patient for life.


Dear Dr. Stevens,

Your kindness is deeply appreciated! I enjoy working with you and hope to always do a good job. Thank you again.



Dear Grant,

Words alone cannot express my appreciation for your kindness and everything you have done for me. Thank you so much.



Dear Grant,

Words alone cannot express my appreciation for your kindness and everything you have done for me. Thank you so much.



Dear Dr. Stevens,

I just wanted to express to you how incredibly happy I am and have been since my surgery. I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to run with only one sports bra without everyone gawking or to go shopping and actually find dresses that fit and are flattering.

This has been the most important and life influencing decision I have made this far and I have had absolutely no second thoughts or regrets.

You did a fantastic job and I am very grateful.

Thank you so much,



Dear Dr. Stevens,

I want you to know how much I appreciate all that you and your staff have done for me. My operation has made an incredible difference in my life. I am very grateful for the kindness and understanding I received from everyone in your office. Please extend my thanks to your staff.

Dear Dr. Stevens,

I’d like to express my gratitude and heartfelt thanks to you and your staff. Your skillful and artistic surgeries have made striking differences in my daughters’ lines and their body images.

As a nurse, I am impressed with the professionalism and thoughtful attention we received and as a mother, I am delighted for Patricia and Jennifer’s happiness and contentment.

Again, thank you for the excellent care given to my daughters and for extending a professional discount to me.

If any client needs a recommendation from a mother’s prospective view, please call on this one.



Dearest Dr. Stevens,

I sincerely appreciate your generosity on scheduling my surgery. I hope to get many referrals for you from it.



P.S. My seamstress and I are looking forward to altering my clothes.

Dear Dr. Stevens,

Just wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful time at the Sandpipers function.

Not only was it a generous contribution to a worthwhile organization, but we might also have picked up some new patients. I had quite a few compliments on my complexion and was able to refer some of the women to the offices for Biomedic consultations.

Thanks again. It was a fun day.



Dr. Stevens and Charlie Sheridan,

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all you have done for me. Charlie, you put up with me and went out of your way to work around my horrible schedule. And Dr. Stevens, your wonderful talent gave me the beautiful results I have today. Thank you both for making my surgery possible and for making me a very, very happy girl! I can’t explain how appreciative I am. I can’t wait to go shopping either!!



Dear Dr. Grant and Staff,

Again, I am overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness and generosity. The flowers are magnificent and I am truly enjoying them. Thank you so much for thinking of me in such a nice way!

In the illustrious words of the “Great James Brown” I feel good ? doda, doda, doda, do! I can’t believe how good I feel and in no time, I’m going to be the thinnest, cutest girl around!

I also want to thank each and every wonderful person on your staff for treating me with such kindness and professionalism.

Dr. Grant Stevens,

Thank you! May I also wish you and your beautiful family a very Happy and Merry Christmas and a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

With my sincerest gratitude


Dr. Grant Stevens,

Thank you for such wonderful care! I am thrilled and amazed with your kindness and concern!

I like meeting other sculptors especially good ones. You out did me Doc Stevens today is #7 day and I feel wonderful, look healthy and finally found I can follow rules and guess what they work. Rest.

Tell the staff how smart they are and when you find time to see my work in Laguna or so perhaps there will be mutual esteem!

Pink & Pretty,


P.S. Got my ole buddy the jaw back.


Dear Dr. Stevens,

I had hoped for any small improvement but you gave me so much more My tummy is beautiful! Thank you so much.


Dr. Stevens,

Thank you for all of your kindness, concern and compassion. You’ve done a wonderful job. Thank you.

I just love my new “ears” (so does Bruce). I have a great new spring and summer wardrobe I can hardly wait to wear.

Thanks again for making my bunny friends a little bit jealous. Looking forward to October for more of your wonderful work.

Wishing you a fabulous spring and summer.



Dr. Stevens,

Thank you for your kindness.

Can’t thank you enough! Even though I’m still healing, I can see that you’ve done a wonderful job. There are no words to express how thankful I am for your caring manner and your special medical skills which have helped me greatly.

Thank you so much.

Dear Dr. Grant Stevens,

You’re the Greatest,

Thank You so much for all your kindness and sincerity over the last couple of weeks. I was in such a lost and desperate situation & everyone made me feel so at ease and took me under their wings. I’m so appreciative of everything! You guys are wonderful!



Dr. Stevens

Thank you and your professional team for making my “fly-in” experience wonderful! I look forward to seeing you again in the Spring.



Thank you so much for your excellent care and for making this experience as easy as possible.


Many Thanks for your outstanding work and your great care with Briana’s surgery. Shee looks WONDERFUL – and best of all, her spirits have soared.

Reducing her breast size has taken a heavy load off her shoulders, both physically and emotionally.

She received the best of medical and sugical care – plus emotional support and patience/kindeness.

We are very fortunate to have had your surgical expertise combined with your psychological background.

Thank you for helping our family and watching over my daughter.

With much love, respect, admiration, and gratitude


Dr. Stevens

You are a miracle maker, or as I like to say a MILF Maker!

Your the best!


Dear Dr. Stevens & staff,

Thanks for your generousity by letting me use the advertised special for NLite Laser.

I could go anywhere but choose to drive to your office when I need anything because of your staff & yourself. (150 miles round-trip).


To: Dr. Stevens and Charlie

Thank you so much for your very generous donation of three gift certificates for custom facials to my schools fundraiser! They were a big hit with the volleyball moms, and they brought in a lot of money. We really appreciate it!
Thanks again!
