Dr. George Commons Top Quality Staff and Top Quality Facility

I have had the opportunity to travel the country and observe aesthetic and cosmetic surgeons performing many different types of plastic surgery procedures for nearly 30 years. This has included many visits to the Palo Alto area and Dr. Commons. For the uninformed, and there are many on this site, Dr. Commons is an excellent surgeon who is extremely experienced. Additionally, his staff and the surgery center he uses are top-notch providing an excellent and safe procedure. Anyone thinking that Dr. Commons does not get great results, or believes the one nut posting, is absolutely misinformed. He is the best.

DR. GEORGE COMMONS BUTCHERED MY FRIEND

A friend of mine went to Dr. George Commons nearly a decade ago and is still reeling from the damage done to her by this absolute disgrace to medicine. Dr. Commons turned a routine procedure into an absolute nightmare. He operated on about 20 wrong areas of her body and cost her over $200,000 worth of corrective surgery and attorney fees due to the aftermath of his horrible surgical work. This Palo Alto plastic surgeon shouldn't be allowed to hurt any more people he pretends to want to help. I know my friend is not the only victim of this licensed butcher, but he has money to burn, so he throws enough of it at lawyers to cover up his worst mistakes. Any other doctor who had his record of ruining innocent lives with poor procedures would no longer be allowed to practice medicine anymore. My friend's endured dozens of corrective surgeries she's had to pay for out of pocket, and the doctors who are fixing his shoddy work are always amazed at how incompetent his work was. Judge Leslie C. Nichols fixed the trial for his friend George that would have and should have resulted in some relief for my friend. There is nothing more dangerous than a doctor who is above the law and immune to the civil channels of relief friends like mine rely on as victims. Medical malpractice trials are difficult to prosecute as it is without judicial corruption and doctors like Commons escaping culpability because of biased rulings. Commons operated on my friend's knees for no reason, without her consent. There was nothing wrong with her knees at all, and he did such incredible damage that she now experiences constant pain. Her suffering is brutal to witness, and because of this absolutely unfounded and unauthorized surgery her kneecaps frequently get dislocated. She also had large X marks carved into her hips. Other doctors have no clue why Dr. Commons or any other surgeon would engage in these procedures and do such severe harm. Commons essentially amputated part of her calves, and she has had to go to other countries to get artificial injectable implants to fill in the large concave areas. Her calves were perfect and beautiful, and they should not have been touched Judge Nichols made things much worse for my friend by turning a blind eye on the evidence presented in the case. This judge was obligated to consider all the records showing all the wrong operations done on my friend. He saw pictures of the awful injuries my friend sustained, injuries the opposing counsel never disputed by presenting any evidence of their own. Even the statement written for the court by Dr. Commons shouldn't have been enough to sway any judge to rule against my friend. "I didn't think I did anything wrong," was all the doctor said to defend himself of the charges. Apparently the opinion of a friend means more to Judge Nichols than the pain and suffering of a victim. Judge Nichols treated my friend like she was the defendant in the case and forced her to pay all of his friend's legal fees. His corruption was unconscionable and left my friend victimized once more by the very justice system that was supposed to protect her. He even went as far as requiring my friend to remain quiet about her ordeal and prevented her from warning others about the worst Dr. Commons could do. More of his victims will suffer now even after trying to check out his background online like many potential patients do before surgery. The First Amendment simply doesn't exist in this judge's corrupt courtroom. He simply swept the whole problem under the rug to protect his pal and left my friend's life in shambles as a result, her constant suffering magnified by the fact that seeking justice proved so futile. Judge Nichols made sure to rig the entire trial, corrupting my own lawyers to work against me in the process. No witnesses were allowed to testify, no jury was allowed to hear the case, and my friend got no opportunity to have a fair hearing on her grievances. My friend's had to shed so many tears and endure so many days filled with tremendous pain shooting through her body because of this awful experience. The doctor's used his money and connections to erase the truth about what happened. He's made my friend's mental pain just as bad as the physical ailments she suffers because of his butchery. The fact that Dr. Nichols actually teaches future patients at Stanford only makes things worse. This is not an example any young surgeon should be following or looking up to. This man is absolute *** who should not be able to ruin any more lives like he was able to ruin my friend's life. I have known my friend nearly all her life. She was a strong, happy, and dedicated young lady before Dr. Commons came into her life. His crude cuts transformed her into a physical and emotional wreck. Her strength has been sapped by his relentless attempts to keep her quiet at any cost, and his actions to corrupt the judicial system victimize her more with each passing day. She must wake up every day to confront the fact that this man cannot be held responsible in a court of law for what he did to do so much injury to such an innocent person. Seeing what she goes through in being forced to endure this ordeal makes me convinced that the only way to bring this man to justice is to let him be tried in the court of public opinion. Please help spread the word about Dr. Commons and Judge Nichols and their egregious abuses. Please do not let what happened to my friend happen to any future victims who might be fooled by Dr. Commons' fabricated and whitewashed "clean" record as a surgeon and Judge Nichols' biased and corrupt judicial practices.

SCREW THAT DOCTOR! THAT REALLY *** ME OFF!!!

EXPOSE that doctor and even call the local media or papers! They love to post stories like that!

I'm sorry that has happened.

@PissedConsumer650523

Actually I have contacted the media and they won't do the story. The media is controlled by the pharmaceutical industry, and they won't allow stories of board certified doctors who screw up - they want the American public to have total faith in doctors so you will blindly take whatever drugs they prescribe.

They only do stories of doctors who don't have licenses, or doctors from 3rd world countries who damage American patients.

Dr. George Commons - Plastic Surgeon from ***

Dr. George Commons mutilated my friend's body, operating on 20 of the wrong parts of her body. He caused serious damage to her knees, carved X's into her hips, sutured her pubic area, damaged her calves, operated on the WRONG LEG, all areas that were perfect and she didn't consent to surgery on. What could explain him doing this? He just lies about it, so we're not going to get any answers from him. These are the possibilities: He is an ***. He was drunk and/or on drugs. He is a sociopath. He is too lazy to do the appropriate surgery on each patient, so instead he does the same surgery to everyone, whether they need it or not. Some combination of the above. The sociopath theory is likely, because he has the typical characteristics of a sociopath: 1.Pathological liar -he even lied under oath. 2.No concern for the suffering & damage to their victims - Commons saw what he did to her, and could have had his insurance pay for the reconstructive surgery, but instead he conspired with his friend from Stanford, a superior court judge, to fix the malpractice trial. The judge got her lawyer to waive her right to a jury trial behind her back and agree to no witnesses & no testimony. This allowed this corrupt judge to rule against her even though ALL the evidence was in her favor, and he ordered her to pay Commons' attorney's fees, and she had to go through bankruptcy. She lost her business and she and her daughter were evicted from 2 apartments. She has had 28 surgeries so far at a cost of more than $200,000. She has had to work 7 days a week for more than 11 years to pay for it, and she still needs more! 3. Never taking responsibility for what they have to to their victims - he said under oath that he didn't think he did anything wrong. 4. Blaming the victim and going on the offensive - he sued her and her daughter for defamation, even though they told the truth and were protected under the Constitution. That suit was dismissed when she threatened to sue for malicious prosecution. George Commons has done similar things to other patients. He is a menace to the public and should have lost his license years ago.

Dr. George Commons -MALPRACTICE & BATTERY!!!

Dr. George Commons had a malpractice judgement against him for damaging a womans' face, neck, and chest. The jusry awarded the victim about $90,000. She is disfigured for life. He wasn't even supposed to do anything to her chest. Dr. Commons has a habit of operating on parts that the victim has not consented to have surgery on. I know of at least three women he has done this to. This is battery. He is the worst doctor I have ever heard of. He operated on more than a dozen of the wrong parts on my friend, including the wrong leg!

And this is your business why exactly? Just because a judgment is handed down does not mean the person actually did anything wrong. ***, McDonalds had to pay a woman 2 million for spilling her own coffee on her own legs.

#625652
@Andrea Ahw

Yes, it is my business because I was victimized by this ***. And I spoke to both the woman and her lawyer and she is permanently disfigured by what Commons did to her.

And for your information, medical malpractice is not like any other lawsuit. In states like CA with a low cap on damages, it is almost impossible to even get a lawyer to take a med mal case unless you have CATASTROPHIC injuries, let alone win. Anyone who wins a med mal case you can be sure the doctor screwed up. In fact doctors screw up so much that medical mistakes are the LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH in this country.

They kill 3/4 of a million people a year, and the injured are probably 10 times that. But I was never counted among those because Commons, like most doctors, are liars and never admit to doing anything wrong.

So next time before you leave a comment, make sure you know what the *** you are talking about.

Maybe nothing wrong happened hence you lost. Were you a 75 year old wishing to look like you were 25?

DR. GEORGE COMMONS - CRIMES & MUTILATIONS

Dr George Commons - DR. GEORGE COMMONS - CRIMES & MUTILATIONS
Dr. George Commons of Palo Alto, CA caused so much damage to my friend that 11 years later she is still dealing with the fallout. She just had her 28th surgery to try to fix his numerous mistakes, and she still needs more. . He operated on more than a dozen of the wrong parts . He operated on the wrong leg . He operated on both her knees without reason or consent, causing her kneecaps to dislocate painfully . He operated on both calves without reason or consent, causing large concave areas that had to be filled in with artificial fillers . He carved large X's into her hips without reason or consent . He operated on her pubic area without reason or consent . He lied about all of the above, telling her she just had to wait a year and all would be fine. Not coinci- dentally, a year is the statute of limitations in CA for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit . Commons sued my friend and her teenage daughter for defamation, because they told the truth about what he did to her . He conspired with his friend, a superior court judge, to fix the malpractice trial against him. The judge got her lawyer to agree to no jury, no witnesses, no testimony, all behind her back, so that the judge could rule in favor of his buddy, in spite of all the evidence against him proving BATTERY - operating on parts without consent . The judge ruled against my friend, ordering her to pay Commons' attorney's fees, and she had to go through bankruptcy. She lost her business she was so depressed and she and her daughter were evicted from 2 apartments because she couldn't pay the rent . My friend has spent the last 11 years working 7 days a week, including Christmas, to pay for the 28 surgeries she has needed to try to fix Commons' mistakes. She still has pain in her knees. The artificial fillers in her calves has hardened, so she needs to go to Europe to have it cut out, and a new artificial filler, not available in the US, needs to be put in. This alone will cost about $15,000. She had beautiful, perfect calves before Dr. George Commons is a monster. He is a pathological liar, he takes no responsibility for his butchery. Instead of compensating his victim, he sues her, as if she was the one who injured him. He knows how she has suffered all these years because of him, yet he illegally avoids the consequences. This is the moral equivalent of a hit and run driver. All of this behavior is consistent with that of a sociopath.

Commons has a malpractice judgement against him for damaging a woman's face & neck. You can see it on the CA Medical Board website. He is a monster and should have lost his license years ago.

#612931

To anyone who doesn't believe the things said here, if anything

were not true, the author would be sued for libel. Doctors even sue when the posts ARE true, trying to intimidate and get the posts taken down.

But Commons will never sue for this, because then he would have to answer for his crimes under oath.

#606632

I know of someone else who was damaged by this same doctor. He

botched her breast implant surgery. She went to another doctor in SF to fix it, and he was shocked at what Commons did to her.

Maybe someone should amputate a part of HIS body that he is fond of.

What a monster!

#695617

I can't understand how someone like Dr. Commons could've done such strange things.

He did such a good job on my tummy tuck, that the scar is barely noticeable. When I speak to other plastic surgeons they have nothing but good things to say about him. He is also listed in US News as a top doctor. He's been around for decades and teaches at Stanford hospital, it makes no sense at all.

I'm not saying it's a lie, just that it makes no sense. Also, the anesthesiologist he uses in Palo Alto is top notch and on call for when the presidents visit.

Why would he work with a "butcher"? I just find it all hard to believe.

#695805
@PissedConsumer695617

Strange things? You mean criminal things, outrageous things?

And how would other doctors know what he does - do they see his patients before & after? I don't think so. And listed in US news as a top doctor? Look that up and you will see they say they list nearly every doctor in the US!

This sounds like more bs by Commons' wife.

Why would Commons do this? Maybe he was drunk and/or on drugs while he was operating on me. The fact is he did it.

And not only did he operated on twenty of the wrong parts. Then was he did afterwards to cover it up and avoid responsibility is just as bad and shows that he is evil and a sociopath, a disgrace to the medical profession and the human race.

#660370

So butchering me, damaging my knees, mutilating my calves & several other parts isn't enough for this monster. Now he

wants to put me in jail for my friend's posts about what he did to me and how he conspired with the judge to fix the trial.

Please if there is someone out there who can help me, please let me know.

#637076

That's the title of an article written by a physician about sociopaths & serial killers in medicine, for anyone who thinks

a doctor can't do this sort of thing. And I would be willing

to bet that most of the sociopaths are concentrated in plastic

surgery. They didn't get into medicine to help people, they did it for the money and the ability to mold people, especially women, into what they want. Kind of a Frankenstein thing.

#637078
@PissedConsumer637076

That's the rest of the title.

#637061

Emily reads a horrible story like this, sees a photo of a mutilated calf, one of 20 parts damaged and operated on without

consent by Commons, and her conclusion is that the victim (or the person who posted this) needs psychiatric help? I'm afraid there is nothing that can help YOU, lady.

#636588

Honestly, you sound really psychotic. You should seek psychiatric help and probably mood-stabilizing meds.

Leave Dr. Commons alone, he's a wonderful doctor.

#636774
@PissedConsumer636588

He operates on 20 of the WRONG PARTS, causing a lifetime of painful injuries, conspires to fix the trial, lies under oath,

and you think the victim needs psychiatric help???

#636789
@PissedConsumer636588

A "great doctor" doesn't operate on even one wrong part, let alone 20. He sounds like he does surgery drunk or on drugs.

but the media is controlled by the medical/industrial complex and they won't do stories like this about board certified doctors who screw up. They want the public to have blind faith in doctors so people will take the drugs they prescribe without question.

The only stories you will see are about doctors without a license or doctors from 3rd world countries who operate on Americans and damage them. What you and others can do is to contact Commons by email or phone, tell him your outrage at his conduct, and urge him to at least pay for the surgery she needs to fix his mistakes. She has been working 7 days a week without a break for 10 years, and she is exhausted.

His phone is (650)328-**** and his email is gcommonsmd@***.com. Thank you for your help!

Bad result on facelift

It's already a year and a half that Dr. Commons performed a face lift with temporal brow suspension on me. When I first met Dr. Commons he was very kind and promised me great results because of my skin type. He and his anesthesiologist said that I would look half my age after the operation. I didn't expect that, but I did expect better results. The operation lasted eight hours and the discomfort was enormous. He only prescribed Tylenol for pain and Ambien to help me sleep, they only lasted a few hours. Every time I went to see him he said that I looked great and when I complained about the poor results, he said that I should wait a year. After a year and a half my neck looks the same as before the surgery (what they call a turkey neck) plus there is loose ski under the chin, where he made the incision. There are labial wrinkles, and wrinkles on the face., plus there is redness and swelling under the eyes and on the cheek bones. He promised me that after a year he would pull more skin from my neck and I had only to pay for the surgery center and the anesthesiologist. He suggested that I buy a cream from his office, "Obagi" and the cost was $400.00. He convinced me to have botox on my neck and juvederm on my left cheek, where there is more skin to be pulled off, but they didn't work. I went to see him after 14 months and he was a completely different person. He was very rude. He denied that he was going to redo my neck and there was nothing he could do for the redness and swelling under my eyes. I asked him why I didn't have the results like the photos he had on his office wall before and after the operation) and he answered "They are younger, I can't make you look 30 years younger. Then I mentioned that an actress the same age as me had a face lift and looks great,he said: "She must have paid millions of dollars" After looking at the photos of the women on his office wall with great results after the operation, I deducted that they are ether fake or he was good at it at one time and now it's time for him to retire.

I went to this man because I needed a lower face and neck lift.I was short $3000.00 but I had 4000.00 so 7000.00 was what I needed. Care Credit insurance would not give me an increase so I was out of luck..

Dr.Troell and his staff convinced me that a lazer would tighten and change the condition of my skin. He saw the chance to sell me some "product" that he knew would not work on my complection at all. This VERY GREEDY MAN with 2 offices spent 20 minutes to use up my money on a procedure I did not need. He spent hours really going on and on about what a great expert he is at Lazers when this produced NO VISIBLE RESULT AT ALL.

Now I am really screwed and my neck looks worse than it did before this.

I asked him for just 1/2 my money back but he just lied about everything to care credit and made up stories so irrelevent he sounded out of his mind. This man and his office are NOT TO BE TRUSTED FOR ANY REASON.

Dr. George Commons - BAD SURGERY & LIES

These are complaints posted on the internet by former patients of George W. Commons, MD. Commons and his lawyer are trying to prevent the public from hearing the truth about him. They lie to other websites, telling them that there is a court order preventing me from posting this. This is a LIE! I hope pissedconsumer will not be intimidated. "I have owned a business in Burlingame, Calif for a number of years. One of my friends who also has a boutique had a face lift from Dr. Commons in 1997 or 98. It was absolutely shocking to see the difference in her, not an appreciable one to say the least. She complained of serious itching as I recall and when she confronted him or his staff about the problem, they said it was natural to expect some minor irritation and it would soon "go away". It lasted for 5 years. Her appearance was extreme . She was terribly disappointed with the results. She said she thought because he was so busy with so many patients, (according to his staff) that he must be good. She regrets this poor analogy now." "No, cannot possibly refer friends and loved ones to this doctor. Had a facelift that was not done well and not done in the way he described to me. Positive effects did not last while negative effects are permanent. I am terribly disappointed after hearing very good things about his work. I suspect this doctor has been relying heavily on his reputation from voluminous liposuction studies from many years ago. He could not offer any explanation for why my surgery did not turn out so well. Maybe it is time to retire?" "Had a consult for liposurgery with this Doctor but did not select him for the surgery. Seemed well loved by his efficient office staff and there was a nice energetic and friendly ambiance about the place but the consult itself did not go well. This is just my honest impression. While the office made me feel very comfortable, when I met with the Doctor himself, I could not imagine him doing surgery on my body. I did not feel that I could trust him to do a quality job. Here's why. He seemed very hurried, disorganized, forgetful and clumsy. He had more than ample photos demonstrating the volume and variety of cases he has done and has obviously had a great deal of experience but he got confused and could not stay on track with the questions I asked and seemed fuzzy and disorientated throughout the entire conversation. He had trouble finding things and explaining things to me. His manner and behavior definitely did not instill the confidence I needed." "Dr. George Commons did a terrible job on my liposuction. It was just like the person said in the first posting here at the bottom - he worked on parts that he wasn't supposed to, and he didn't work on parts he was supposed to do. I don't know how he can still be allowed to operate when he does things like this to people. Definitely not recommended!" "I just don't know how to say this, but I think Dr Commons should retire. He needs to cut down on his operations or a take more time evaluating what needs to done to correct the problem. I don't want to sound like I whining but in my case the surgery was botched. I just thought I should let those who are considering Dr Commons know you may not be that happy with the results." "He did my eyes and they turned out uneven. He wasn't very helpful and tried to minimize the fact that it wasn't symmetrical. I would not go back to him. "

Valerie swan post malicious falsified lies about any company she deals with, reputable people & large/small businesses. I am currently under attack by her smear campaigs.

Several court cases against her in San Mateo & surrounding counties, including criminal & civil cases for over 10 years, some current & pending. If any needs information to assist in their civil cases or prosecution against her please contact me.

Beware of Jeff Kaplan, K&K confidential. He is a dishonest man who rips off his clients, then when they warn others about him, he retaliates with a smear campaign, posting false and slanderous things, like the above.

Absolutely disgusting.

Google "Dr. George Commons Butchered My Friend"

Google "Dr. George W.

Commons Judge Leslie C.

Nichols" and look up the post on ripoffreport dot com. You will see a photo of the damage Commons did to her calves.

George Commons has a malpractice judgement against him - you can look it up on the CA Medical Board website. I spoke to the woman who won in court against him.

He disfigured her face, neck & chest for life by screwing up on the procedure he did. In my opinion, he is one of the worst doctors in the country. And most if not all of the positive reviews of him are fake!

His wife posts fake positive reviews all over the internet. One time she even referred to him as George, forgetting that she was posing as a patient.

I have had Dr. Commons do a variety of things to my eyes and face.

I think he is extremely professional and very good at what he does.

He's at the top of his game. I have nothing but the highest regard for him.

Tell me how to post pictures here and I will show you what that *** did to me.

Post #8 was written by a scary man named Payman Simoni. He is a pathological liar who behaves like a sociopath. He threatens patients who give him negative reviews, and he then smears them all over the internet.

I was butchered by Commons and I know of others as well. Just because he doesn't butcher everyone doesn't mean he doesn't butcher some people.

If someone is on trial for murder or rape, if he has a witness who says, "Well I know him, and he didn't murder or rape me", would that be evidence that he didn't murder or rape anyone? You are a fool.

Shocked by the lies from Valerie. I have had only great experiences with Dr Commons work. He has a fine eye for detail and always explains the process of the surgery to make sure we are both on the same page. I have to say his work is some of the best I've seen, and I'm very critical when it come to cosmetic surgery.

I have a feeling that this complaint is to slander a good doctors work for some financial gain on the complainers part. I would like to see some pictures of the complaint as well. My guess is you're looking for something to get from this type of post.

Get a life! What goes around comes around, I sure you know that.
