An elective surgical experience should be safe and fulfilling. Every patient is special with unique treatment goals; therefore, in the consultation process I seek to understand the patient's expectations and desires.  We also review the surgical and healing processes in detail. My staff and I seek to be attentive to patient's needs and concerns.  We hope to have the opportunity of meeting with you in the near future.  We provide the following background information in order that you may compare experience, service, and commitment when making decisions about your surgery.

The goal of our practice is to provide excellent personal service and optimal quality medical care in all areas of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. We take extra efforts to ensure the privacy of all of our patients, to answer all of their questions thoroughly, and to allow them to make the very best informed decision possible with regards to surgery.   Each member of our staff has been extensively trained and we treat each patient as an individual from initial inquiry, to consultation, to surgery, and for many years afterwards.  We want every one of our patients to know that we pledge to treat and care for them as we would a member of our own family.
