It has been a little over year since my surgery....

It has been a little over year since my surgery. And I have to tell you, it really changed my life. I really happy with my results. However I am very dissatisfied with the service I received from my doctor and his staff after the surgery. I only saw the doctor one time!! I tried to make another appointment, 10 months post-op, to see him because my top half of my stomach and my neck [two of 9 of my liposuction areas] were protruding. His staff said that he doesn't see patience after surgery because there isn't much he could do with my healing process. I felt so alone and used because I couldn't explain what was going on and the only person that could, wouldn't even see me for an appointment. I am happy with my results but not because my knowledge doctoregarding but because I had to my own research and school myself. It was just too much work for the amount of money I paid. My mother is getting the same surgery in September of 2016 and her package includes a 3 or 4 post opportunity appointments. I just recommend that you ladies make sure you do you your own research if you deal with Dr. Kalatarian

Doctor Reached out

After writing my first review months ago, the doctor became aware of my review and called me on his personal cell phone. He informed me that he was not aware that I was turned away by his staff. He was so compelled to make it up to me that he fit me in on a busy Saturday. He apologized numerous times, explained that he took my comment very personally. He loves what he does and wants all his patience to be happy. He continued to explain options/prices for my areas of concerned. After talking with the doctor for over an hour, i was reminded why I chose him in the first place. He is very knowledgeable and let his patients know exactly what will be going on. I appreciate that and will be having a second surgery with him soon. This time I hope to have some pictures for you guys.
