I felt I was in "good hands" from spending time with Dr. Albear and his nurse Jeri. Him and his staff are very thorough and very people oriented. I never felt like I was rushed like you sometimes do whenever you see your regular physician. I felt more like a good friend or family. They took time explaining EVERYTHING. The best feeling was going in knowing what to expect during surgery and afterwards during recovery.

I interviewed over four plastic surgeons until I thankfully found Dr. Paul Albear. Dr. Albear worked in tandem with breast cancer surgeon, Dr.Charles Cox for my double mastectomy and reconstruction from breast cancer. Dr. Albear talks to you in real terms and treats you like he's known you for years. His demeanor and skills are what sold me. He takes the time to listen to you and connect. You are never, ever rushed through an appointment. You feel valued and cared for not only by him but by everyone on his staff. I have been very pleased with the results from my breast reconstruction. He handled everything from the expander process, to nipple reconstruction and aerola tatooing. Because he handles so many breast cancer cases,I felt like he understood and knew exactly what I was going through physically and emotionally. Dr.Albear is not your radio station/billboard plastic surgeon looking to turn and burn patients in and out on botox. (although when I'm ready for all that, I would go to him!) It's clear he's in it for something greater as well. It made my breast cancer reconstruction process so much easier dealing with Dr. Paul Albear and Staff.

I had my surgery combined with a double hernia repair. Dr. Albear and his staff were amazing through every step of the process! They worked to help me coordinate the procedure that involved two surgeons and it was always very clear where I stood with insurance and fees. From Shyra's amazing organization to Laura's super friendly demeanor I always felt like they had everything under control. Dr. Albear made me feel like he had all the time in the world for me and my questions and concerns. He truly was my advocate from start to finish. I have never had the experience of an office manager who is as on top of things as Geri. When a problem arose she always contacted me immediately with a solution and if I needed anything she got back to me within minutes of my leaving a message. I went into the process of contemplating having plastic surgery feeling very intimidated by and unsure of the procedure; by the time it was time for surgery I felt very well informed at at ease. I am currently two weeks post-op and have continued to have excellent care. I am more then pleased with the results so far and can't wait to see how fabulous my tummy looks after I am totally healed. Thank you Dr. Albear and staff!!
