Excellent customer service by Doctors and his staff to explain the procedure and recovery / healing process. Good, professional followup before procedure to answer questions and concerns and allow for my need to return to work ASAP. My visit to check the incision was on time, and the drain tube was removed in just a few days to make my recovery time less intrusive into my life. The incision healed very well, pain was minimal after the first 5 days, and it feels great now. So happy with Doctors excellent work, as the scar is getting smaller all the time and its great not to have a giant lump on the side of my neck any longer!
Doctors managed my expectations perfectly, the results were even better than expected. The procedure was quick and pain free and recovery was simple and fast. Minimal scarring. Great service at the office and great bed side manner from all the staff involved.
Doctors and her staff are always kind, informative & supportive. They have a way of putting your mind at rest. They show an overall concern for your well being. Because of the size & location of the lipoma it caused me pain daily. Since the removal I have not had any issue with that area.
The doctor and all the staff were very warm and knowledgeable and sensitive to my concerns I developed a lipoma on my forehead about eight years ago and was always putting my hair in my face or cutting my bangs and avoiding the wind blowing my hair away from my face from keeping people from seeing this gumball shaped lump on my forehead and since I've had it removed I have a new found confidence . I wear my hair however I want and died my hair blonde to bring attention to my face 🙂
I no longer have a big lipoma lump on my lower back. My surgeon prepared me thoroughly for what would be done and what to expect. He was patient and kind. He answered all my questions patiently and never made me feel rushed. The results were good and the follow up care complete. He made me feel safe and cared for as a person, not just a surgical patient. The nursing staff was caring and professional. The whole staff was friendly.
