I was assigned to Dr. Chen on account of my cancer. I wish I had had time to do some research before accepting him as my surgeon. Overall, he didn't do what I asked for, which necessitated additional surgeries. It was a pretty traumatic experience, all in all.

Doctor Landherr not only helped clear up my sudden unexpected terrible acne, he was also able to do a very delicate, beautiful job removing a bump on my nose that has bothered me for years. This bump was tiny, but sometimes would bleed and scab. Now I can’t even see where it used to be! Well done!

I truly appreciate her skill and precision in complicated surgery. The communication beforehand about what/why/how the procedures would take place was excellent. The BEST however, was Dr. Rupp's genuine interest in and commitment to recovery and restoring me to good health. It worked.
