Are you a patient of Lewis Albert Andres, MD?
I have heard much about Dr. Andres from others with cancer. At various groups and meetings, his name was mentioned as one of the best reconstructive surgeons. I researched the DIEP flap and found that he is also one of the few plastic surgeons throughout the country who even offer this highly skilled procedure. His qualifications far exceed any expectation. I would recommend him to anybody for any plastic surgery procedure. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done! My words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation that I have for Dr. Lewis Andres and his staff. I am grateful that I was able to access a top Plastic Surgeon in breast reconstruction surgery, and a highly trained and skilled surgeon in the DIEP breast reconstruction procedure. There are very few Plastic Surgeons that can perform one of the most difficult procedures in Plastic Surgery, and Dr. Andres is one of the few. I started the process of breast reconstruction with apprehension. I had survived Cancer treatment and wondered if I was ready for elective surgery. I thank Dr. Andres for making the journey such a positive experience. Dr. Andres’ staff took care of all the insurance details for me. They were at all times professional, efficient and personable. The results have far exceeded my expectations. I use the word “amazed” all of the time to describe how I look and feel. Now, after the process is complete, I would highly recommend the DIEP breast reconstruction procedure. I appreciate Dr. Lewis Andres for his support, encouragement and, of course, his expertise in breast reconstruction procedures.
I had several friends who had these same procedures done by Dr. Andres and were extremely happy with their outcomes. They did look amazing after their surgeries! After researching other plastic surgeons in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area and with the high recommendations from my friends I decided to have Dr. Andres do my surgeries. I don't think I have ever had a doctor spend so much time with me going over the procedures and making sure all my questions were answered. Dr. Andres made me feel I felt very confident in his medical knowledge and surgical skills. His office staff was awesome! Everyone was so welcoming and flexible and really worked with me to get this surgery scheduled. I can't believe how great I look! Dr. Andres has far surpassed my expectations. He is a true artist and is fantastic at what he does!!! The only thing is I wish I would have known about him sooner! I would definitely recommend Dr. Andres to anyone who is contemplating getting any type of plastic surgery.
I was referred by a Surgical nurse that worked with him on many procedures. She highly recommended him & I thank her for such a great referral. Dr. L.A. Andres was wonderful. His charming personality made my going thorough a mastectomy & then reconstruction almost a good thing. He always has a smile on, which makes you want to go to every appointment. He did great work & Im very pleased with my results. I had a question after my first surgery & it was over the weekend, I called & got the answering service & within 15mins I received a call from Dr Andres himself. I was not expecting him to call, but I was Thankful that he answered my question & I didnt have to wait until Monday.
Internet through DIEP Sisters site. I found Dr. Andres listed as one of the physicians that performed this procedure on a DIEP site. From the start Dr. Andres and his staff were extremely professional and friendly. I was very nervous but Dr. Andres (and his staff) made me feel comfortable and assured me by addressing questions and concerns. They handled all the insurance, scheduling and made sure I was aware of everything that was going on. I never doubted Dr. Andres skills - his focus and perfectionism were evident from the moment I met him. I knew I would be in good hands and I was. Dr. Andres is highly skilled and always positive. Dr. Andres is encouraging and gave me hope. It has been almost a year now since my surgery and the results keep on getting better with time.
Dr Andre is very professional yet he makes you feel relaxed and calm. I tested positive for the BRAC 2 cancer gene and had some big decisions to make. I met with Dr. Andre for a consult and he immediately made me feel at ease and helped me make the right choice for me. He explained how he would reconstruct my breasts and what I could expect with the end result. I am currently 7 weeks post op with breast expander's in place and already I am happy with my results. I can not wait for the permanent implants to be inserted! Having my breasts removed and reconstructed was a huge decision, but thanks to Dr. Andre I now have a 1% chance of breast cancer, reduced from over 80%, and I have young breasts again! I am recommending Dr. Andre to all my family and friends who are considering reconstructive surgery.
