Wow, my experience all the way around is 5 stars. Dr. Workman is amazing. I know he is a very busy surgeon, but he has truly made me feel as if I'm one of his only patients! First, he was upfront and detailed during my consultation. He was very attentive on what I wanted and hearing my expectations. He listened and addressed all my concerns. Second, on the day of surgery, I found out he consulted with other colleagues to make sure his plan on how to deal with my previous abdominal scar was the best course of action. That made me feel so secure! Third, the surgery went perfect and the incision looks great! Initially I was a little apprehensive about the operating suite being in the office, but the operating room was state of art! When I walked through the doors I felt as if I was walking straight into a hospital. The staff was very attentive, professional, and totally focused on me. I was so nervous, but they really calmed me. The recovery nurse was very much on top of the pain and nausea medicine and I came out of surgery actually smiling and talking. The only thing I was feeling was the tightness (he just removed 4 lbs of fat and skin so this is what you want)! Fourth, several times I've called to leave a message with a question for the nurse and then the doctor called me back! Does anyone else know a doctor that does that?! Not me!!! As for the staff, what a great set of people!!! So friendly and genuinely caring individuals! Kay, who runs the front office is so sweet and answers whatever run of the mill questions I call with all the time. Gretchen, the nurse who has done some of my pre and post op bandanging was gentle and highly informative on how I should be caring for myself to get the best results. I never feel bad calling with additional questions. Also, I haven't spent more then 5 minutes in the waiting room. I feel like there hasn't been a bad experience in the bunch. There is nothing critical to say here! Seriously, these individuals are so wonderful! I am currently one month post-op and still in recovery so I won't be doing anything soon. Eventually though I would like to have lipo on my thighs and arms, and maybe ever breast augmentation if I get really indulgent. All I have to say is that I would never let another doctor touch me! Good luck to everyone out there ready for a tummy tuck! It is 100% worth it! Once I get pictures off my phone I will try to upload them.

As you have read in my experience I state how much the Dr. and his staff cared about my well being. I feel like they cared about me as much as if I was a family member. I would reccomend Dr. Workman a 100 times over.

Never have waited more then 5 mins once inside for appt. I felt like he was friendly and very professional. While having issues with my pain meds, I received 2 nurse calls and 1 call directly from my doctor.

Dr. Workman made my husband & I feel comfortable from the second we shook hands. He answered all of our questions with honest answers. I knew within our first meeting that he was going to be my PS. I'm so looking forward to my final results... UPDATE: Dr Workman far exceeded my expectations. His eye for detail is something I'm so grateful for. I had a full tummy tuck w/ muscle repair & I cannot express how excited I was to see my incision for the first time. I was overjoyed @ how low, thin & even it was. I was also equally impressed with my belly button & how well centered it is. My boobs are beautiful, I couldn't be happier. The recovery nurses + my post op nurse have all been wonderful, so friendly & beyond helpful. His staff gals (front desk & patient coordinator) can be a little "cold", but what they lack, everyone makes up for. All & all his work is amazing & he is someone I'd recommend over & over.

Dr Workman and his staff make me feel so comfortable. They are just a phone call away if ever I have a question. The work he did for me is above and beyond. I couldnt of ask for a better mommy makeover.
