      Love, Love, Dr. Dufresne, he is truly an Artist. Majority of my close relatives are Doctors and or surgeon, including a plastic surgeon. But, Dr. Dufresne is the Doctor both my mom and I Choose to go to. He has performed all my mothers elective surgeries and the outcome of the each surgery was nothing but perfection. We have been going to him for the past 20 years, and honestly not we have not one bad thing to say about him and or his staff.

      This man is nothing short of a butcher. I had two C sections and my scaring was nothing compared to what he left me with. My procedure was not only a waste of money but a very poor selection of surgeons. He and his staff rushed through my surgery and provided extremely poor after care. Scared and in pain is the only result of using this "Dr" I would have left zero stars if it had been an option. Caution DO NOT USE HIM!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
