She did an excellent job with the black patient she actually looks the best. I wish she would have gave more info it looks like there was a hernia repair along with the procedure. Would love more info SMH!!

She really rushed past the black girl tuck information. lol She spent much more time all the other women. Great presentation though and useful information. That why I just would not have trusted no other Dr. but my Dr. who was the same skin complexion as myself. Just to be treated fairly especially under the knife and sleep 3 hours. lol Funny how folks are.
