DO NOT choose this plastic surgeon if you are having reconstruction after breast cancer. He was always in a hurry and the end result was terrible. He even admitted he did not do a very good job after it was to late to fix it!

By far the best plastic surgeon on the east coast. I traveled from DC suburbs to see him to repair a botched nose job from a supposed top DC doctor, and could not be happier with results. I heard about him from a friend in NY. He is a true find and so is his staff. A gentle, honest doctor who tells it like it is and not how you want to hear it. Hard to believe he could do anything wrong. Bethesda, MD
