Amazing Life Changing Experience with Dr. P - San Diego, CA

He is the only doctor I felt comfortable and knew exactly what I wanted. I knew I had come to the right place for my surgery. I went to numerous doctors in Newport, Beverly Hills among other areas and Dr. P was by far THE BEST. Since I am such a small girl, it was hard for other doctors to decide on the proper procedure for me. Dr. P had me give him details and pictures of what I wanted and he decided on the perfect size for me. I absolutely LOVE my new boobs and I honestly couldn't have been more satisfied inside and out! I feel so perfect and complete! Totally recommend him!! Pros of my experience: Everything! The atmosphere of the office, the caring, kindness, understanding, professionalism and quality of work of the doctor and of course my results! I can not be more satisfied. Cons: NONE. Maybe it being a far drive for me, but that is it.

Breast Augmentation by Dr. P - San Diego, CA

Dr. P and his girls in the office are amazing! They are all very comforting to talk to and know exactly how to accommodate their clients. During my 1st visit, I was offered to talk privately with other patients that were there & see their results. Making that his normal routine shows confidence in his work, which in turn gave me confidence in him. From that day on I didn't feel nervous one bit, even when I was getting prepped for surgery. I knew I was in good hands. Post-surgery, i received a call every day, for about a week or two, from his office to see how i was feeling and if i had any questions...great follow-up! Thank you for enhancing my life Dr. P ;)
