NEVER! Extremely arrogant as well as the staff. RUDE, Showed off in front of the staff and students. The people that work there especially his assistants and the front desk are very Rude and all are very arrogant. Changed my schedules 3 times in ONE Day! The staffs from DIFFERENT Deparments Blaiming each other's Nobody takes responsibility and Got differ answers from ALL of Them. Only acted nice (1 time) prior of your decision, but after He Got paid THEN You are OBSOLETE. HE'D Ignored YOU after.

I thought it was going to be a great experience very attentive before surgery , after the surgery I never seen Landsteiner again Matter of fact I had 4 to 5 pre-med students around me not a good experience. I had a tummy tuck and lipo suction on my iner thighs Inner thighs look deformed worse than before I have this bulge in the center of my legs he said it was normal I was only 154 lbs not normal. Tummy tuck not what I expected at all.. Truthly I didn't know students would be working on me.
