She may be great at superficial or less invasive procedures but definitely get more information and/or a second opinion with more invasive/ "sophisticated" procedures.

I went in for a breast augmentation with Dr. Petti. I had a wonderful experience during the consultation, procedure, and follow-up appointments. The office is serene and comfortable, and the staff are warm and friendly. I feel safe and unusually comfortable in front of those who have needed to see my bare breasts for both photos and examination. I have always felt very uneasy even at the prospect of strangers seeing my bare breasts, but the politeness and professionalism of everyone in the offic

Dr. Petti did a great job on my breast lift (with implant remove&replace). I have a very uneven chest wall that is extremely noticeable without implants. Dr. Petti spent hours in surgery to ensure the lift and implants hid my deformity. At 5 weeks post op, you can't even tell that my chest wall is uneven. I am very pleased with the natural and youthful look.

Dr. Petti performed what I thought was going to be a routine breast enlargement for me in December 2014. I was not looking for a huge enhancement, I'm 5 8 and 120, I wanted a size B. It is understood that my breasts were slightly different sizes and that would be corrected with the surgery. She did not correct them, one is now a size C and the other a B, a significant difference. One is much lower and larger. When I asked her to correct it she wanted to charge and additional $4K.
