I am 5 days post op now. I have been very pleased with Dr. LoMonaco and his staff thus far. I love the time and attention they provide to you at each appointment. Destiny and Chela have called me each day to check on me. Chela even brought something by to the hotel one day for me. My results so far are as expected - I will post more as time progresses.

I Had my Tummy Tuck Revised–-Houston, TX

Dr. is a very patient and informative doctor. He is very good with responding to any e-mail that is sent directly to him and he is the one that actually respondes back to you not his assistant. This doctor take the time to listen to what you have to say and takes everything into consideration and doesn't just ignore the issue. The staff is very friendly and are very promt with returning any phone calls. Not to mention after surgery his nurse will call you everyday to check up and just to make sure you do not need anything.
