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.
