Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nachbar "I have been practicing plastic surgery for over 25 years and have built a reputation of listening to my patient?s goals and educating them on what they can expect both in results and throughout the experience itself so there are no surprises. My patient?s comfort level is paramount to me so I make myself available whenever I am able, even after office hours to answer questions and concerns. We also offer complimentary consultations to put prospective patients at ease."
