5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Hijjawi is not only a very knowledgeable and highly skilled surgeon, he is also very kind and sincere. I could tell from my first appointment what a wonderful, caring doctor he is. He truly has the patient's best interests at heart! He took the time to listen to me and to answer all of my questions. (I brought a list to my appointments-he'd look at my list and make sure every question was answered!) He also was very thorough in explaining the procedure and the expected outcomes. The day of surgery he carefully marked the areas for the procedure as we had discussed. He made sure he answered all of my questions . I felt comfortable going into surgery being in his care. I had very minimal post op discomfort. I attribute this to his knowledge and skill. :) I healed well and everything went as expected. I highly recommend Dr. Hijjawi--he is great!

Dr. Hijjawi is passionate and informative professional in his field. I was originally scheduled to meet with another doctor for this procedure, but my primary care called me to inform that Dr. Hijjawi was who I needed to see. That was the first time I've ever had a doctor redirect me to another provider, and I took it as a good sign. My consultation was the longest appointment at the clinic I had due the extensive history his nurse took, measurements, and the photographs. He took the time to understand why I was seeking the procedure to help with the upper back and neck pain, and hopefully the migraines. He was never dismissive of the idea of it helping the migraines in fact he thought it would probably would due the way I described them to him. He was surprised that my neurologist suggested the idea, and that he was willingly to write a letter for the approval process. I also had my chiropractor and primary care doctors all write notes to help. Right after that appointment I knew why my doctor had sent me to him. He was so kind, caring, and passionate about helping me even though I was not his typical patient, which would be breast cancer patients in my opinion. His assistant made the approval process painless all I had to do was get the letters from my other doctors and she took care of the rest. I first received a denial letter, but that was due to them sending it in without the letters. Once they sent the letters with the full prior authorization my surgery quickly approved it. I did have to reschedule my surgery, but it was only pushed back a week so in my opinion that isn't too bad. I was fine with having the surgery around Christmas, but Dr. Hijjawi did ask me if I was sure. On the day of the surgery I had seen the anesthesiologist first, and then Dr. Hijjawi came in to do his markings. During this he took the time to answer any questions or concerns, and then asked about work and school. He again made sure I understood the scars, and then said he would probably have to do drains. I was hoping to go home after surgery, but since I had my surgery on a Wednesday, and the clinic being closed the rest of the week due to holidays he suggested I stay in the extended recovery unit in order to remove the drains the next day. I was a little nervous about this due to cost which he could sense, but when my mom inquired with the insurance they told her that he had written his prior authorization to cover the stay. At the time of discharge the residents who work with him came by to check on me before writing the order. They all raved about his work saying he did an excellent job even though I couldn't see it yet. Post op for the most part went smoothly I never had any trouble making appointments to see him, and when it wasn't his clinic day I saw his physician assistant who was awesome! At my six month appointment which would be last before he left, Dr. Hijjawi was very happy to hear that my pain had lessen, and that I had only had 1 migraine since the procedure. The only disappointment is Dr. Hijjawi is moving to Salt Lake City, Utah, and that if I ever needed further surgery for whatever reason he will no longer be an option unless I travel. He has set the bar high for future providers in my care.

Dr. Hijjawi was a champion for my cause. His knowledge of the process, both medical and insurance-related. He explained the process in the office and again at the hospital, prior to the procedure. Afterwards, he reiterated what was to be expected. His skill as a surgeon, coupled with his facility at communicating the process all along the way, allow my to give the following ratings.

Dr. Hijjawi is an amazing guy. Diligent and genuine professional. Great talent and skill sets. Wonderful bedside manner. He had/has my utmost trust. I would highly recommend him. By the way, he also performed a much more serious procedure related to breast cancer on my wife. She is beautiful and we are blessed to have had Dr. John in our corner. He is God-Sent. Thank you Doc. We are forever grateful. And, we both look pretty darn good ...thanks to you.

Dr. Hijjawi confirmed the diagnosis of capsular contracture and performed the implant exchange. He was professional, knowledgeable, and concerned about me as a person. He explained the procedure in words that I understood and took the time to answer all my questions and concerns.
