About Claude Joseph Noriega, M.D.
Dr. Noriega has been performing Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery for over thirty years. He is respected as an excellent surgeon by his patients, fellow surgeons, and other medical professionals. He takes pride in being highly recommended by all of these groups; his practice is largely word-of-mouth, and he appreciates each and every recommendation.
In addition to his excellent reputation, Dr. Noriega also has outstanding education and training. He graduated with honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara, one of the world’s best science universities. At his graduation, his professors voted him “Outstanding Senior in Biological Sciences”.
Dr. Noriega then attended the University of California in San Francisco, one of the top 5 medical schools in the country. There he received his degree in medicine, and then his training in General Surgery with eventual certification by the American Board of Surgery.
For his specialized training in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Noriega came to the University of Miami to train with the world renown Dr. Ralph Millard, who was himself trained by the famed “father of modern plastic surgery”, Sir Harold Gillies. Having made Miami his home, Dr. Noriega has lived and practiced here for over thirty years.
Dr. Noriega is dual-board certified — first as a General Surgeon, and then as a Plastic Surgeon. These certifications mean that he is a well-trained, experienced, and capable surgeon. Dr. Noriega encourages anyone considering plastic surgery to ensure that the surgeon they select is a board certified specialist in plastic surgery.
While board certifications demonstrate essential abilities, it is Dr. Noriega’s years of skilled experience, meticulous attention to detail, and commitment to excellent results that set him apart.
