Practice Philosophy

To my Patients,

My philosophy is simple- spend the time to get to know my patients, appreciate their concerns, then honestly convey my opinion whether I can reliably and predictably deliver the desired results.

It is an honor and a privilege to be a Plastic Surgeon. I interact with a wide variety of people: young and old, male and female, and cosmetic and reconstructive. My philosophy pervades through my work and I treat each patient if they were my family member.

I consider our first meeting an interview for both of us. I decide whether to “hire” you just as you are deciding to “hire” me. A connection must be forged and a trust established. Without these, the outcome will never be successful. I will take as much time as you need to go through all your options, explain the risks and benefits and outline a reasonable plan. I am always available to you by phone 24 hours a day and will answer your emails within 24 hours at most. If you prefer to speak face-to-face, I will be happy to arrange further consultations with you at your convenience.

I want you to know I enjoy what I do tremendously, and I believe my enthusiasm shows through in my personality and in my work. You must already know this if you are reading this letter, and I want to sincerely thank you for your confidence in me.
