Moved away from the Corpus area almost a year ago. Didn't realize what a great doctor I had until I now have to replace him. With so many doctors eager to do surgeries it's nice to have a doctor who is patient, monitor's a situation and has equipment to manage a glaucoma patient very well.

Dr. Mlakar performed a secondary reconstruction 5 years after a bilateral mastectomy and tram flap reconstruction. I was told by other plastic surgeons that nothing could be done to improve the results. Dr. Mlakar did a wonderful job & gave me the results I wanted.

Review for Dr. Brian Patterson, MD

Worst doctor I've ever seen. Arrogant, unprofessional, did not do his job. When you have an appointment you will wait 2-3 hours. He will expect you to like it or you can leave, this is his attitude.

Review for Dr. Jeffrey Schlimmer, MD

Answers questions, explains procedures, and possible complications. Orders necessary tests, schedules surgery quickly. Clean, neat, precise. Very difficult to find in Corpus Christi.
