Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mandel "Dr. Mandel is grateful for the opportunity to serve the plastic and reconstructive surgery needs of the community of the inland northwest. He believes that Plastic and Reconstructive surgery is as much about psychological healing as it is technical, and as such, is committed to compassionate care comprised of listening, clear communication, patient education and involvement, and medical excellence.

Plastic and Reconstructive surgery serves an important role in many people's health by restoring form and function. Whether reconstruction after cancer, trauma, burn, or elective procedures to enhance natural beauty, plastic surgery can help you feel more confident about your appearance. Dr. Mandel specializes in results that look natural for an un-operated look."

Very rude and demanding. I had ruptured silicone implants and the VA sent me to him to get them out. He would not try to find out what he had to about me through the VA and work with them.

I am sorry that you were unhappy with your consultation. As we discussed, my primary concern is patient safety. Factors such as nicotine, infection, and new illnesses can increase general anesthetic risk and operative complications. Our protocols are based on current surgical and medical evidence, and are in place to optimize outcomes. I have treated many Veterans, and will continue to do so. I have deep gratitude for our Veterans and the sacrifices they have made for us. I wish you the best.
