Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Fagg "Dr. Fagg is a very caring surgeon. He does not rush through the visit and makes sure all your questions are answered."

"we have been coming to see Dr. Fagg and Effie for years now.We have been in emergency situations and they have opened up the office for us. Honestly, the most professional healthcare team I have ever known, and I've known a lot."

"Dr. Fagg is a surgeon who inspires confidence in his patients. Of equal importance is the quality of the staff with which he surrounds himself. Their competence is an important factor in the perception of the total health care experience for a patient. Both aspects are supported by the end results."

Care Philosophy

"Our goal is always to provide the best care for our patients. To do this requires a broad background in the art of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as a commitment to the process of continuing education. By frequently evaluating new procedures and comparing them with “tried and true” ones, our surgeons are able to provide our patients with what is best for their particular problem or desire. You will not be talked into a procedure that is wrong or dangerous for you.

Each patient is treated as the unique person he or she is, and communication between the patient and physician is paramount. Consultation among the surgeons within our practice is available for particularly difficult problems."
