My surgery was scheduled for 9:30 am; I arrived at 8:30 per clinic instructions. The surgeon did not roll in until 11 am, which is his habit; I also wait intolerable times in his overbooked office; he also became irritated with me when the surgery obviously did not improve and he was loathe to do any aftercare to remedy the situation. Overall, this plastic surgeon has not stayed abreast of the times. He is a cutter and probably very good at that, but has extremely limited knowledge of HA fillers, options to surgery such as fillers, fat transfers etc., the surgeon is chronically late so people wait hours after their appointed times and he is completely insensitive to the impact of this on his patients; if he has a bad day he lets it effect his attitude in the office ie: he was angry at a clinic he was going to start using in a neighboring county (this was June, 2010) and I waited in an exam room while he raged and raged to his office staff and this ate into my time, MY TIME that was supposed to be for me after I paid a gouging fee for a filler and then he rushed doing it. He and his staff are not up on the latest techniques because during a discussion on what filler would be best his nurse said "oh I'd be more comfortable with Sculptra in my lips" and got irritated with me when I said Sculptra is never meant to be put into the lips. (They no longer do any fillers at all, just as well). I would love to upload before and after photos however, the doctor did not provide them when I requested copies of my records to bring to another doctor. It is my firm belief this surgeon would benefit greatly from sensitivity training; running and maintaining an office; seminars and personal training about fillers and the latest techniques and the global approaches to correcting defects using fillers and needs a change in the one nurse who ill-serves him and his patients. Oh yes, they'll take your money: check, credit card, etc.
