The anesthesiologist, Dr. Rothman, is also a gem. HIs smiling, affable demeanor instantly put me at ease. Penny Sprague, the practice manager, went out of her way to make this the best experience for me.
As for the surgery itself, I just had it today. I am confident it wil live up to my expectations. I am posting a post-op pic and will continue to post as I heal.
Finally, the after care facility I am at right now (Serenity) is terrific. Paid extra to have a lie-flat gurney to take there. I strongly recommend that rather than having to be propped up in a wheelchair and loaded into a car seat. they whisked me a away, hooked up to fluids and painkillers (Although my post-surgery pain is minor). THe staff at Serenity is great. At the press of the button, they come help you with anything you need. Even the food is delicious.
