Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zenn "My plastic surgery practice includes both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. The overarching principle that guides how I deliver care is treat people the way you would want you or your family members to be treated. I believe that there is not a one size fits all solution to most health problems so the best way for a doctor to deliver the best care is to listen carefully to each patient and get a sense of their unique needs and preferences."
