I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Schlecter. Years earlier I had had another surgery done by a different doctor and had developed a serious complication which could have been life threatening so this recent procedure had me pretty scared. I was a very nervous patient and asked an awful lot of questions about risks etc. I do not feel this doctor and I communicated well about what I wanted to have done. It may have been a combo of my nerves along with him being a little rushed with me. Either way, the responsibility falls on us both. I do not feel he removed enough fat after my procedure, although the jury is still out. What concerns me is his obvious annoyance at my questioning anything. After paying a total of 8k for 2 relatively small procedures, one would think a little more understanding might have been shown toward a concerned patient. He seemed so nice prior to the surgery but as soon as I questioned what was done, and it was only a question, not an accusation, he got very short with me. I was hoping to continue to see this doctor but am unsure if I can now. The jury is out as to whether I can recommend him to others. I plan on talking with him openly about what I saw during my last visit and will see what he says. I will update this review on his reaction if I can.
