Patient Comments (2)
Edison, NJ |
He is a TERRIBLE surgeon who easily gets annoyed when you ask him any questions. He doesn’t even explain anything or let you know what to expect. He left me in CHRONIC pain after having breast reconstruction with him and proceeded to tell me it was probably pain in my life or somewhere else in my body that is transferring to my breast. He is a dim-witted imbecile who doesn't know how to treat patients or even perform surgery properly. I had to go to another doctor to get his work repaired.

Best plastic surgeon ever. Not only is he skilled and a perfectionist but he is honest and takes the time to explain. It's a special kind of dr who is in it to help and not for the glory.
