Went back on September 29, 2015 for a second time to change a deflated breast implant. I had new silicon implants put it. The doctor himself was wonderful and so was the office staff. The nurse anesthesiologist however was rude in a way that she felt like she could talk and give advice about everything and anything. She bluntly told me to lose 30lb even though Im 5'4 and weight 145-not slim but I hardly think that qualifies me as obese.
