Dr. Fasching is a very skilled, competent surgeon, especially regarding body contouring after major weight loss. I suffer from 2 different forms of anemia, and rarely have a hemoglobin over 9. Dr. Fasching required me to do some extra things, such as iron infusions to keep my hemo up before he would operate on me, and even ordered a hemo check right before surgery before he would allow me to go back to the OR. Definitely a Doc that cares about his patients health first. Since surgery I have had 3 openings in my incisions, due completely to the lower blood supply my tissues and skin receive because of my anemia. Not knowing I would be a much slower healed than most, I was too active, too soon. None of the openings were fault of anything Dr. Fasching did, and he has fixed them every time for me. I live 2 hours away, longer with all the summer road work, and every time I opened, Dr. Fasching had me go down immediately, and has put more than his fair share of time into my recovery, including staying late on a Friday evening, seeing me on a Saturday, and getting me in when booked full. His staff has been incredibly patient and supportive as well, and no one has ever showed annoyance or rushed me out the door.
