"Hi Dr. Kenkel, I know I've already thanked you once for doing such a WONDERFUL job on my surgery, but I feel compelled to thank you again. After seeing you Monday and being taken care of, I feel so grateful for your skill and expertise. I was very worried about how I was going to look after surgery, but I couldn't be happier. I am so happy that I made such a positive life changing choice. My self-esteem has skyrocketed and I feel so much better (though I am still getting the headaches....) As busy as you must be, you still take the time to make me feel important and cared for. I am so blessed to have such an amazing doctor! On a side note, I have a few friends who are considering the same surgery and I've urged them to choose you as their doctor. I know they will be as happy as I am. Have a wonderful day!"

"I have had several treatments by Dr. Kenkel including Ulthera and Fraxel. I lived in El Paso at the time and was happy to travel to Dallas to get the best care possible. I now live in Houston and still travel to Dallas. Dr. Kenkel's staff is awesome...always friendly and ready to answer any questions. As for Dr. Kenkel....he always gives the patient his full attention...never gives the impression that he is in a hurry (which I'm sure he is) and is always friendly and smiling."

"Dr. Kenkel is a very warm and gentle Dr. I have had injectables in my face numerous times with Dr. Kenkel. I keep going back because my experience is always fantastic. Dr. Kenkel is so gentle I barely feel any pain and my results are exceptional. I may have some liposuction next year and know I will have Dr. Kenkel do my surgery."

"My experience with Dr. Kenkel and his staff was superb. Having been in the plastic surgery field for over 20 years, I can say that my visits could not have been better. Dr. Kenkel was punctual, attentive to my concerns, honest, and most importantly didn't try to talk me into something that I didn't need. I wish I had found this practice many years ago. I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful Dr. and staff, seriously."

"I am a Texan living overseas in The Netherlands. In November 2007 I underwent weight loss surgery which resulted in the need for corrective plastic surgery (body contouring surgery). I knew that I wanted to have my surgery in Texas and so I made appointments with several surgeons in the Dallas area and flew to Texas to make my choice. At the advice of the very first surgeon I visited I went to Dr. Kenkel and I never looked back. The surgeon said to me, "If you were my sister I would tell you to go to Dr. Kenkel". After choosing him as my Doctor I now know why. I had a limited time to visit surgeons to make my choice and even though I had not scheduled ahead of time with Dr. Kenkel he found time to see me, even during a busy travel schedule. He took time during my first consultation to discuss the procedures that would benefit me with my safety always the main factor. He spent as much time as I needed to answer all of my questions and continued to do so by e-mail when I was back in Europe. The day of my surgery every effort was made by the nurses and staff at the outpatient clinic to make me comfortable and relaxed prior to surgery. Every person who helped me that morning, from the admitting nurse to the anesthesiologist, provided me with excellent care. For my recovery I stayed at the Medallion Guest Suites which are located within the Outpatient Clinic at UT Southwestern. The standard of care and quality of the nursing staff at the Medallion Guest Suites is high and in fact I think the best I have received. It was also comforting that my husband was able to stay with me at the suites during that time. Words cannot really express how happy I am that I chose Dr. Kenkel as my Doctor. Looking at the results he is obviously a talented and gifted surgeon. He was always prompt (and often even early) for all of my appointments. I really liked that I had the same nurse at each follow-up with Dr. Kenkel after my surgery because I felt the nurses also really care and want to follow the patient's progress during recovery. All of nursing staff in his practice were very kind and generous with their time. My nurse was Marjorie and she was really very special to me after the weeks I spent recovering and visiting for check-ups. Within a few months I will return to Dr. Kenkel for further plastic surgery to complete my body contouring procedures. Equally important to me is that Dr. Kenkel is just a kind and genuine person and you can tell that he really cares about the wellbeing of his patients. He took every extra step to take care of me and put my well-being first. If you have a need for plastic surgeon, then I would recommend that you visit with Dr. Kenkel. After having gone through my surgery and many appointments with him I can completely agree with the surgeon who back at the beginning of my journey said to me, "If you were my sister I would tell you to go to Dr. Kenkel". His skill as a surgeon has changed my life but his patience, personality and generosity have made him much more than just a Doctor to me. Dr. Kenkel is very special to me and I am eternally grateful that another plastic surgeon had the integrity to send me to Dr. Kenkel as the best in this field."

"My experience with Dr. Kenkel & his entire staff is always fantastic! Dr. Kenkel is professional, attentive, punctual, knowledgeable & the BEST at what he does. He has performed several procedures on me from something so little as removing a mole from my face, to laser treatment for spider veins on my legs & breast augmentation. I have always been 100% thrilled with my results! Dr. Kenkel will never push you towards an unneeded or unnecessary procedure & he always gives his honest professional opinion. Dr. Kenkel & his staff helped me look & feel my absolute best for my recent wedding...I highly recommend him!"

"Dr. Kenkel has earned my total trust and confidence. I have had other plastic surgeons before that we a little too opinionated. He has made me feel so comfortable every time I am in his office. He is extremely professional and confident in his advice. I would recommend him and his staff to ANYONE. If you need any type of plastic surgery, I would go to Dr, Kenkel first. You will not be disappointed."

"Everything that has already been posted and more! Dr. Kenkel is a professional, caring "miracle worker." The entire experience from the initial interview to my overnight stay in the Medallion Suites went smoothly. Truly, I can't say enough good things about him, the entire experience but most importantly, my results! I am only 4 months out and I look and feel fantastic - I wish I had done this for myself years ago. Truly, you can proceed with confidence if you choose Dr. Kenkel as your surgeon. I highly recommend him, his staff and UT Southwestern Medical Center."
