Montag wrote, "I am devastated to hear the news of Dr. Frank Ryan's death. He was the most amazing person I have ever known." 

She continued, "He was an angel and changed my life and the lives of everyone he met. He was the most brilliant talented surgeon who will ever exist. Dr. Frank Ryan changed the world."

Heidi concluded, "My thoughts and prayers go out to his mother, family, friends, and anyone who was ever blessed enough to meet him. He is in a better place."

Frank Ryan did much to help underprivileged children in the LA communities--check out the Bony Pony Ranch www.drfrankryan.ORG he also would work on children born with facial deformities for free... so yes, he did change many peoples lives. He truly cared about people and was as kind a person as you could have ever known.

I cannot believe the evil in some of these comments. Regardless of your stupid opinions a human being lost his life, his beloved dog fighting for her life & numerous people, family, patients & friends lost, what seemed to be, a good natured, smart, accomplished person in their lives that THEY loved very much! As far as I'm concerned, YOU 'commentors' are the ridiculous ones, NOT Dr. Ryan. He did his job- which is NOT a psychologist- & you blast a dead man for that? I can think of worse things. God bless him, Jill-his pup, & his fam & friends.

I never met the doctor. I am sure he was a very nice person.
Something tells me though he got recalled back to the pearly gates to have a discussion about his " freak factory"
He was messing with gods work, and got recalled for one too many big bad boob jobs.
Heidi's boobs look like a freak of nature and bad joke gone astray..
I think god was insulted.
PS- I don't go to church, and am not a religious person.

why is people so rude. Whatever Heidi did it's her business and take it out on Dr. Ryan it's his job. People are so cruel. God bless you all.

I did not know this man, only what I've seen through the media. He did a lot of work with kids that had facial deformities. Who cares what Heidi Montag asked him to do to her. He did nothing illegal.
I feel badly for his family and the kids he was helping that now will probably not be helped.
Also for his dog who he apparently loved very much who will not have her caregive anymore.
Hard to believe the insensitive comments here.
It's pretty easy badmouthing someone when you are sitting behind a computer.
Any idiot can do that.

Heidi, You're RIGHT. Dr. Ryan did cange the world, he put botox, and implants in people's bodies. He made money off of many woman, who see themselves imperfect. I am saddened for his family's lost. But you need to go EXPLORE the world or L.A.'s mission district and make some "real change there". I think you should study psychology in college.

The most brilliant talented surgeon? who will ever exist? Really? He trumps all the other new-face-makers, as well as heart transplant surgeons, the miracle workers who separate conjoined twins, brain surgeons... even OB/GYNs? Wow, OK Heidi.
