5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I was referred to Dr. Fazilat by the founder of my dermatological clinic. This practice offers services from cosmetic surgery to routine dermatology to cancer treatment and reconstruction. The doctors are reputable and the doctors I've chosen are liked by their patients. Initially, I sought out a different doctor to discuss liposuction options. Through out discussion, I asked about breast reduction and the staff enthusiastically referred me to Dr. Fazilat. In fact, rather than suggesting I book another consult to speak with him, he graciously joined my appointment as he was in between surgical procedures at that time. When Dr. Fazilat entered the room, I felt an instant sense of ease. He was professional, but not too clinical. When I told him I was interested in a BR, he looked at me and at first glance, as if to relate to the burden and discomfort my breasts had caused and said, "Ohhh, you'd feel A LOT better." From there, I asked him several questions about the procedure, what technique he'd recommend, whether or not he thought I'd be a good candidate, etc. When I got home later that night, I started researching Dr. Fazilat and found nothing but positive reviews from patients (and not one review by anyone angry or dissatisfied) along with pretty realistic-yet-good looking before and after photos. His medical training was of very high standards and in the current phase of his career, he's considered a breast procedure expert. Dr. Fazilat is easy to talk to and easy to understand. He is confident, not arrogant, and gave me a sense of comfort that I was in good hands. He's friendly, has a good sense of humor, is respectful, and showed respect for my modesty during exams and during the BR preparation on the morning of surgery. His bedside manner has been superb in the exam room and throughout my recovery so far. And, his support staff is also responsive, ultra helpful, and easy to work with. On the fourth day of my BR recovery, I was feeling very itchy. I was not having an emergency nor was I in distress. I had emailed his staff asking if there was something I could do to help alleviate the itching. Instead of receiving an email response, I received a phone call from the doctor! I missed the call because I was putting my daughter to bed. So, I expected to reach a phone service when I called the number back, but I didn't. Dr. Fazilat answered the phone directly! I was so appreciative (and surprised!) that he made himself available, especially for such a "silly" question. I would recommend Dr. Fazilat to anyone looking to have a breast procedure done. I've felt very comfortable with him and with my decision throughout the whole process. I'm now on day 10 of recovery and am eager to see him at my next post-op in a few days so he can guide me onto the next stage of recovery.
Dr. Fazilat is really friendly and straightforward which I like. When I met him for the first time, he made me feel really comfortable as we discussed what I want and need. After I met him, I still had questions and some reservations about result and risk factors which I shared with his office manager. He called me after he heard from his office manager my concerns and spent a good amount of time answering all my questions and making me feel confident with my decision.
