I started off my journey several months ago. I was gun hoe about the famous Dr. J Curves. So I paid the $50.00 phone consultation fee. Face to Face consult is $100.00. The entire experience with this Doctor and staff was a disaster. Once they had my email address they keep sending me emails. I received one email a day for weeks. I called them 7 times to ask them to stop email me about scheduling a consultation. I had a consultation scheduled. I had to wait weeks for my consultation because of the high demand of the Doctor. The day prior to the consult I received an email stating, “I” request to cancel. Really, when did I do that? I rearranged my entire schedule to make sure my husband and I could be together during the consultation. I did no such thing as cancel the consultation. I was PI**. They called me to reschedule it for a week later after I received the email stating I cancelled it. “Backwards” The reason was that the Doctor had an emergency. Okay, that's completely understandable. But why send me an email saying “I” requested to cancel the appt? I called the office staff and she could not explain why. How simple is it to modify the email to state, "due to unforeseen circumstances we needed to change/ move your consultation.” I almost forgot one other disaster with them. Something is wrong with there incoming/ out going emails. It’s a technical issue and the IT people are working on it. FOR WEEKS…… I sent my photo’s 7 times to 5 different people. Would you like a ton of necked pic of you in cyberspace? If I like the way I look necked, I would not be having surgery to repair the imperfection.
Finally, two days before my consultation they received my photos. I had the consultation with some lady I forget her name. She was pleasant, but pushy. She was a sales person. She told me how my butt was shaped well, round and I have nice projection on the top. But, I need to form the bottom a little more. WTF, she continued to try to sell me a BBL. I wasn’t interested in a BBL. I requested a quote for a full tummy tuck and a breast lift. She gave me two quotes. The first quote was a BBL, TT and lipo of the flanks, back and tummy. That quote was 18K. The second quote was for the TT, BL and lipo of the same areas, it was 18K. This was crazy as heck to me. So if I went with the 1st quote I would not get my breast done. But, the bottom of my butt would be more pronounced and round. The second quote was for the TT and BL and lipo. They added a flip over fee of $600 and $900 to lipo every area with the 2nd consult. WTH, these people are crazy! I was pis**d. The same day I called Dr. Cortes office. I spoke to a lady right away. No red tape. I sent her the same photos I just used for Dr. J Curves. She called me back several days later with a quote 5K less than Dr. Curves. To top it off, I am getting so so much more with Dr. Cortes.
He recommends you stay in the hospital over night. I love that!! He provides you with insurance incase something goes wrong and you need an ambo/ over night hospitalization in Texas or home. Dr. Curves didn’t offer me any of that. If any one would like to see the quote from Dr. Curves please in box me and I will send it to you. Big, big difference is Dr. Cortes performs his surgery in a hospital. Dr. Jimerson does his in his office. I prefer being in a hospital with all of the supportive teams on standby, JIC. Yes, I would like to have the procedure done however; the most important thing to me is my safety. I have two little ones that mean the world to me. God forbid something goes wrong and they have to call 911 to transport me to the hospital. Those seconds matter. Dr. Jimerson has a CRNP for the anosethiologist. I could get pass that if I was in a hospital but, 6-8 hours of being under in a fully equipped doctor’s office is not cool with me. IDC if your office is down the street from the hospital. It’s still not cool. My husband is a FF/ PM. Do you know how busy they are at times? What happens if they take 15/ 20 min just to arrive to take you down the street? 15/20 min is an average national response time. To sum it up, that’s good timing. NAWWWW, I’m good with the hospital.
