Treatment goals: Create a natural appearing, balanced aesthetic enhancement that complements the patient's unique features. 3) What makes your practice distinctive ?

We covet our patients and are vested in each and every one of them. We treat our patients like family. 4) What does your office look like ? Our office, located in the heart of the Beverly Hills medical district, is state-of-the-art ultra-modern facility with a minimalistic emphasis. 5) What does a consultation with you entail ? Initially, patient information is gathered including photographs, salient medical history, and aesthetic goals. Next, I perform a comprehensive consultation utilizing videos and interactive patient education software. Following the consultation, the patient reviews the surgical procedure, peri-operative plans, and financials with the surgical consultant. 6) How do you best educate your patients and manage patient expectations ? Extensive education with interactive software. This allows the patient to develop realistic expectations for their aesthetic procedure of interest. 7) What steps does your office take to augment comfort ?

Comfort and security: We strive to achieve the ultimate customer experience. In surgery, much like professional sports, talent typically prevails. Championships however, are won by the teams who subscribe to organizational excellence.

That's what ultimately differentiates you as a surgeon from the masses. And that is our goal: to exceed our clients expectations. 12) How do you show patients you care post-treatment ? I believe my patients should have access to me post-surgery. Therefore we establish channels of communication that promote this. All our patients receive multiple follow-up calls, especially in the early post-operative period to ensure an optimized post-operative course and peace of mind. 13) Does your practice have a tagline or brief mission statement ? If so, please explain "Sustained excellence" – our ethos, simply put, is to provide the pinnacle of care, in a culture of service excellence. We strive to develop an organizational environment that supports the consistent delivery of exceptional quality. We strive to get better, each and every day.
A patient who is years out from surgery, presents to my office for a routine follow-up . She is as enthusiastic today about the impact my treatments have imparted on her life as she was the day after surgery. That's my definition of success, hands down.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?

0 Board Actions

What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
