This content was provided by Dr. Petrungaro "Having Plastic Surgery is a significant personal event. It may be to cure disease or to make a body part work better, and sometimes a person has Plastic Surgery "on purpose" to change one's appearance. No matter the reason, I dedicate myself to patient education, developing patient trust, and achieving excellent surgical results.
My philosophy on patient care centers on taking the time to listen to my patients and their concerns, and then develop a highly individualized treatment plan. I find great reward in spending time with my patients and keeping them informed and involved in decision-making throughout the entire surgical experience, from initial consultation through postoperative follow-up, with a strong dedication to excellent bedside manner coupled with compassionate patient-centered care.
Whether restoring form or function, my ultimate goal is to deliver the most natural, long-lasting results, achieved in the safest way possible with complete regard for patient well-being. "
