He is everything you want in a doctor, especially when you "feel mutilated". He is supportive, caring, understanding. He does not provide false assurance. He tells you facts. He asks questions. He does not dictate to you or make you feel insignificant. I have not been his easiest patient. After my final right areolar reconstruction, I was injured and the implant, muscle tissues and areolar were compromised. He just said, "I can fix that." And he did. After falling "victim" to a tick bite that led to encapsulation of the left implant... Well, he fixed that, too. He is a remarkable doctor, surgeon and human being. He really cares about every one of his patients.
