Which do you consider more important, the surgeon's qualifications and prestige or his/her relationship with the patient?
I have been to several consultations and there are 2 doctors with whom I'm more interested in having a breast
One of them is a very well known and respected surgeon. He's the chief of surgery of one of the main hospitals in
my country. I went with him and he explained to me the procedure and made his recommendation of what would be best for me. However, I wanted to ask him some more questions but he had to leave as he was required and also I felt
him a little bit cold towards me.
The other one, also has a very good preparation, but without all the prestige and recognition. However, he took
the time to explain me the way he made the procedure, and I was able to ask him all the questions I wanted to know at the moment.
I don't know what to do. I have seen both surgeon's results and I like them, I feel is what I want, something that would look natural on me.
What would you as a surgeon would advice me to look for, the qualifications and prestige or the relationship with the patient?
