My goal is to provide my patients with the best medical and plastic surgery care that I can. I strive to teach my patients the short and long term implications regarding their procedure.
Confidentiality, treating all of our patients with respect and dignity is extremely important to us and maintaining our own AAAASF accredited surgical facility allows us to better control these ideals.
Questions and taking additional time to understand the risks and benefits are strongly encouraged. I work hard to maintain a warm, friendly and professional atmosphere.
We try to educate you regarding the desired procedure, the risks and benefits as well as alternative procedures. I will give you my opinion as to what I feel would be the best prcedure for you and whether to stage (spread procedures out) in order to optimize results or to decrease potential risks.
I will tell you if I don't think a particular surgery is indicated for you and may suggest that you get a second opinion. I encourage you to write your questions down to discuss when you return for a second visit (history and physical exam).
Modesty garments are used as often as possible. We encourage patient input as to how we can improve your experience with us. We strongly recommend that your post-op caregiver (responsible adult) come to one of your visits for educational and support purposes. For same day surgery patients, if you live more than 15-30 minutes from us, we strongly advise that you stay in a nearby hotel the night postoperatively, so that we can address rapidly any potential problems and to see you for the follow up the next day. Before and after photos are usually available and if desired we can have a previous patient call you to discuss their experience. We are a professional and happy office and appreciate a good sense of humor.
We strive to maintain a clean, friendly and warm operating room environment, that maintains privacy and confidentiality. Patients may enter and leave via a separate back door with wheel chair accessibility. Only personnel directly involved in the surgery and patient care are allowed in the operating and recovery rooms.
You can have your favorite music played during surgery. Pulsitile antiembolic devices are used on all major cases and warming blankets when indicated or desired.
