Are you a patient of Ariel N. Rad, MD, PhD?
Dr R takes the time to explain all aspects of your surgery from start to finish. Excellent surgical/artistic skills. I highly recommend
Dr. R is not only a top notch plastic surgeon, he is an artist. He one of the most compassionate physicians I have ever known. He is also passionate about his work.
Two years ago, before I met Dr R, I had a mastectomy with the amazing team at Johns Hopkins. The cosmetic results were the stuff of dreams -- MUCH better breasts than I had before! The overall experience was so fantastic that I asked my plastic surgeon to give me a face lift. He told me the best person to help me freshen up my looks was Dr R. Dr R listened to me really carefully at every step of the process, and gave me exactly what I wanted. He was attentive and really supportive, answering endless questions and giving me as much (or as little) explanation as I wanted. Like the other doctors I've known at Hopkins, he's not just a great doctor but also a real person, with good people-skills and a commitment to his patients. He made me feel beautiful. My breast cancer days are behind me. I have a whole new lease on life, and a whole new healthy and fresh look as I head into my future. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Dr. R, Johns Hopkins Hospital, was exceptional in every way. Surgically – I have been nothing but thrilled with all aspects of my process. Beginning with my initial consult, the bilateral mastectomies, the optimal care of my expanders, and now my reconstruction surgery, I have been so emotionally strong and well through the entire experience. But more than that, Dr. R has been the utmost in professional, courteous and kind to every one of my family and friends. My two teenage sons and my husband, and my “Team of Advocates” who marched through this process at my side, were always welcome to voice their concerns or anxieties. Dr. R was ALWAYS accessible and responsive to my “teams” needs. It doesn’t get much better than that.
I found Dr. R to be extraordinarily responsive, replying to emails promptly with thorough explanations, and in office visits, spending as much time with me as my frequently long lists of questions required. I rarely felt hurried.
Dr. Rad is wonderful, kind, caring and an incredibly amazing surgeon. His experience and level of training and skill is excellent. I recommend him and rave about my own experience all the time.
Dr Rad took the time each visit (before and after the surgery) to answer any questions that I had. I never felt rushed and always felt like he was very knowledgeable about my situation and how to best proceed. We did Direct to Implants which has higher risks involved. He helped me to make the best decision for me and my family, while understanding all risks involved. Surgery is never easy but I truly believe it was as "easy" a recovery as it could have been because of Dr Rad.
Dr. Rad is an extremely gifted surgeon and overall caring person. He is honest in his assessments and will not advise you to do something that he does not believe is in your best interest. He is accessible and gives patients his full attention. I would recommend him without reservation.
See Above. I LOVE Dr. Rad. He is a fabulous and experienced clinician and really enjoys his work. He did a great job assessing me and my situation and also listening to my needs. He offered opinions and asked for mine...together we came up with a plan that worked well. A plastic surgeon is an artist for the body...helping us to achieve beauty in an unassuming way. I really enjoyed getting to know him and his wife (who is a brilliant and lovely dermatologist) and working with them both. I am very pleased with the results of the surgery and subsequent follow up and highly recommend them both!
