"Every day with every patient I endeavor to provide the best possible results no matter how simple or how challenging the case may be. I am never satisfied until my patients are."
Thank you for coming to this site. I hope it will serve as both an introduction to my practice and an invitation to our office. I'm sure there are many fancier and more professional websites put up by other plastic surgeons, but I would like to let you know my personal impressions about what is really important in your surgical care.
Selecting a plastic surgeon can be a daunting experience. In the United States anyone with a medical degree can call themselves a "plastic surgeon". There are also many Board Certifications that can be confusing.
Initially the office staff needs to be caring and knowledgable to make the first step of your journey a pleasant experience. In our office you can ask for either
Veronica......our surgical coordinator and receptionist
or Virginia........our office manager and patient coordinator
That's everybody. They've been with me for years, and both of them can provide friendly information.
Next make sure the doctor has the training and experience needed for the procedures you are interested in. Although many 'Plastic Surgeons" are board certified, their certification may be in General Surgery, ENT, OB/GYN, or Dermatology. Ask the doctor if they have hospital privileges to perform your procedure, because hospitals verify that proper training and experience is in place before privileges are granted.
Then meet with the office staff and doctor and make sure you are comfortable with everybody; they will all play an important role in your care. Beware of the hard sell.
Hopefully the information you need about me is in the following pages. If it isn't please call my staff. We offer surgeries at many local hospitals and surgical centers, as well as local anesthetic procedures in the office.
