My Stomach and Saddlebags - Lanham, MD
I decided to get liposuction because I have no...
Let me start with Dr. Banks staff- there is a young man that sits at the front desk (I think he is also a medical assistant) Dr. Banks put him there strategically because when you walk up to him he has a kind and calming spirit. He isn't dry or overly syrupy, he's exactly what you need when you are preparing to pay someone thousands of dollars to cut you open. Kudos to him (wish I knew his name) Then there is Sherita (sp?), another kind spirit, very soft spoken but super knowledgeable and patient. She also training a new staff member and asked me if it was OK if she shadowed her during my procedure. I thought it was kind of cool because it's not like I would have known that she didn't belong there if she didn't tell me. There is Ms. Yvonne who I would label the office manager but I'm sure that is not her official title because she does way more than any office manager I've ever seen. She is just cool. I could probably think of a fancier adjective for her but it's unnecessary. Finally, Dr. Banks, at first I was on the fence about her. Partially because of some of the reviews and partially because when you see her outside of your appointment she doesn't speak, smile or anything. Which was off putting to me. But, I'm so thankful that I didn't let it stop me from letting her do her work. She is a professional and great doctors don't have to be extroverts to be great. When she speaks to you during your appointment, before your procedure, or any other time she is fully engaged. I read somewhere in a I review that someone said that she was rushing, I just don't see how this could be the case when everything about her oozes calmness and coolness. If I had to come up with one con it would be that I felt I was being "nickeled and dimed." And to be totally fair that's only because I had to pay an extra $35 to get my FMLA paperwork filled out. I'd recommend her to anyone and I'd pick her again if I decided to do anything else.
