Care Philosophy

We take pride in the care we provide to our patients. We believe that education comes first with our patients. We strive to educate our patients on all of the potential options that might help them achieve their goals. We also believe that we should listen first to what the patient wants improved rather than suggest things. It is the patient's desires that need to be met and that is why listening and educating must come first. We discuss with our patients the manner in which we perform the procedure so they can understand what is involved. That also allows them to compare these items with what they may have read elsewhere. In this way they can make an educated decision on what the want to have done and where. A calming environment is provided in our office with a more home-like appearance in order to have the patients relaxed during their private consultation. We take pride in providing a caring environment, treating our patients in a dignified manner at all times.Read more

Dr. Garcia says...

Having treated thousands of patients since I started my practice in 1988, the varied types of surgery and number of procedures performed has allowed me to grow in my level of expertise in the surgical and non-surgical procedures I perform. My practice presently is 50% on facial procedures and 50% on body procedures. We perform all cosmetic surgeries of the face, body, male and female breast.

Dr. Garcia says...

We enjoy receiving feedback form our patients after their consultation and procedure. In that way we can hone our skills and approach to achieve our patients' desired expectations. Our patients can contact us 24 hours a day. We have an answering service available when office hours are over and we also encourage our patients to communicate via email if that is easier for them to have their questions or concerns tended to. We believe communication both before and after the procedure is done is a critical point of our patient care policy at our office. You will always be examined in follow up by Dr Garcia in conjunction with his staff. Yo will never be relegated to seeing only office staff after your procedure as some offices do.
