Getting to know Dr. Cormier

  • “Best Experience!”

    Have had the best experience with choosing OPS and Dr. Howard Silverman for my breast augmentation. Professional, clean and friendly environment/staff. Dr. Silverman went above and beyond to make sure I received the results I was hoping for. I highly recommend him.

  • “Best Plastic Surgeon!”

    The best plastic surgeon in the greater Ottawa area . Great service and Dr. Silverman is attentive to your concerns and needs . This is my place. No regrets going here as I was referred by 2 friends I know for 30 years.

  • “Outstanding!”

    Dr. Boyd is outstanding on all fronts. Not only does she have a stellar medical training background, Dr. Boyd is attentive and a genuinely nice person. She addressed all my questions and concerns at my first consultation for a breast lift. The surgery was on time and everything went perfectly.

  • “So very happy!”

    I am so very happy with the early results of my masseter Botox treatment. I have been a serious grinder for years which has led to cracked teeth and the need to wear a night guard. It has been 2 weeks and I have already had significant relief – no headaches or neck pain. Thank you Christena McNab!!

  • “Amazing Results”

    I did my research before choosing OPS, and I am so glad I did, the staff is amazing and their work is impeccable!!! I live 2 hours away from their office and used them for my surgery (amazing results!!)

  • “Best In Town”

    I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing and wonderful my experience with Dr. Silverman was. I came away feeling educated and understood. He’s honest, kind, thoughtful and compassionate. And VERY knowledgeable. Look no more if you’re on a search for the best plastic surgeon in town.

  • Kindness of Dr. Frank

    I love OPS! From the second you walk in and get a warm greeting from Romeo or Kate to the professionalism and kindness of Dr. Frank, I felt right at home. I got my blepharoplasty last summer and I’m extremely pleased with the results. I’m actually considering getting something else done.

  • Experience was exceptional

    I’ve had 2 procedures done with Dr. Frank over the past few years, the most recent one being at their new surgical facility. From the moment I walked through the door, to everyone I met, my experience was exceptional.

  • Dr. Cormier was fabulous!

    Dr. Cormier was absolutely fabulous, from beginning to end! I was extremely anxious of the procedure. I appreciated that he took the time to explain everything to me before, during, and after the surgery. I am healing really well and could not be happier with the result.
