I can't say enough about Dr. Barnavon. I recently underwent a mastectomy and I was referred to three plastic surgeons. Dr. Barnavon was the last one I saw and I knew right away he was the one. He is an OCD perfectionist surgeon, which I am myself within my professional life. He spoke my language. The results were so much more than I had expected, almost as if I didn't have a mastectomy. I can't thank him enough and I can't recommend him enough. He is simply the best around!
Dear Anne: We are happy to hear you had a great experience and outcome after surgery. We are always here if you need anything. Thank you for your thoughtful words.
