Patient Comments (1)
in Fremont, CA |
Dr. Werninghaus is very thorough explaining what can and cannot be done (surgery results). The results of my own surgery (breast reconstruction following a mastectomy) was excellent. Dr. Werninghaus is very dedicated. After my 6.5 hr surgery in the morning, she came by at 8:30 pm that night to check on me. As a side note, I had 15 plastic surgeries during my childhood (for a birthmark), so I am very familiar with doctors, hospitals and plastic surgery.
