“I have seen Dr. Roark for other procedures and fillers in the past 12 years and would not consider anyone or any other place to do my procedures. I have never been treated anything but WONDERFUL each time and will receive the same without a doubt for my upcoming procedure. It’s called total confidence!” –Happy Patient via Real Patient Ratings

A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for 26 years, Dr. Roark has extensive knowledge and experience in cosmetic rejuvenation of the face and body.

Dr. Roark enjoys his family, which includes a lively Yorkshire terrier “Mila Bea” and a calico cat “Riley.” He has traveled extensively, including scuba diving in sunny, tropical climates, attending culinary school in the South of France, and walking the jungles of Papua New Guinea.
