Care Philosophy

The relationship you build with your surgeon begins with a consultation. During your consultation, I consider several factors most important: 1) I strive to create a comfortable non-pressured atmosphere in order to build a trusting doctor-patient relationship. 2) I believe each patient deserves a thorough discussion and thoughtful considerations of the results sought. The consultation is never 'rushed' and every question is extremely important. 3) I make every effort to give each patient an accurate, realistic idea of what they can expect after surgery. When deciding on a treatment, more is not necessarily better. The end result should give the patient the desired effect with a very natural look that is not 'over done'. It should produce minimal discomfort and pain with minimal bruising and swelling, allow quick recovery, and leave minimal scars. 4) Finally, I adhere to the highest standards of safety and to avoid complications throughout the surgical experience.Read more
