Kalamazoo, MI |
One of the worst bed side manners from a doctor I have ever dealt with. If you want comfort and information about your visit, he is not the doctor for you. He also used his gloved hands to open the door and cabinets and proceeded to touch open wound. Waited 25 minds after appointment started before seen and never received confirmation of appointment or where the office was located. Had to ask for prescription for supplies needed for wound.

Having been recently diagnosed with breast cancer I found myself in need of a plastic surgeon. I could not be happier or more satisfied with my surgery and the after care I am receiving from Dr. Messenger and his staff. Would not want to be going thru this with any other professional staff.

Went to Dr. to discuss possible fillers for facial wrinkles/eye bags. Dr. told me that he wouldn't do anything to me because I was very overweight (I was!) He told me I should stop being a couch potato & lose weight. I tried to tell him that I had injuries that had sidelined me for the past few years and that contributed to my weight gain....he didn't want to hear anything I had to say. Just handed me dieting information, charged me $65 and sent me on the way. He is a horrible!
