5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

11 Good Years with Saline Implants - Los Angeles, CA

I loved my experience with Dr. MacDonald and if I still lived in Los Angeles, I would have gone back to her, when complications made a revision necessary. Dr. MacDonald is a wonderful doctor, who makes you feel totally taken care of and who genuinely loves her work and her patients. The doctor who did my breast revision is quite casual and not nearly as thorough and my experience with him, now that I am post-surgical and have tons of new questions and worries, is totally making me long for Dr. MacDonald, who followed up with me without my having to stalk her first and whose bedside manner is gentle and sweet and beyond thorough. I trust Dr. MacDonald implicitly.
