I was referred to Dr D'Amico through a friend of a friend who is asked everytime she has her mammogram "who did your reduction" because the work is so good. And BTW-it is 10 years old and still looks good!
It took a few weeks to get an appointment because he had just been named President of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It impressed me enought to wait for an appointment! He is also the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Englewood Hospital.
When I had my consult, never did I feel rushed with my THOUSAND questions! He was very specific on what type of results I can expect. I would have thought that with his positions he would be trying to move you along to get to the next patient or have a giant ego, but not at all!! In fact, he is hands down one of the NICEST doctors of any kind that I have EVER had!
His office staff is equally as wonderful! Marie who does the paperwork and insurance preapprovals fought for me like she was fighting for herself!!! AND I had my 9 week old with me at the consult and Marie held her and kept her occupied so I could be more comfortable and not have to worry about her!
The nurse Lynn is as nice to you the first time you call as the 60th time you call with a rediculous question!
All in all I was sooo comfortable and had such a good feeling walking out of the consult that I immediately cancelled my second opinion with another doctor.
The day of the surgery, he came in to reassure me with his wonderful bedside manner and the true test was all the nurses at the hospital who said "Oh you have Dr. D'Amico...he's soo nice, he's just the best!" That's where the true test is!
He made the anesthesiologist put an extra dose of anti nasuea in the IV before I left to make sure I would not be uncomfortable.
By day 4 my incisions were already closing and I am still amazed at how they just look like a seam on your shirt rather than having such a surgery! I was up and around in 2 days! Just like he said, but I honestly did not believe him!
At post-op, no surprise I was treated with the same attitude and professionalism as before but with the added treat of a body wrap by his aesthetician to reduce any swelling. This apparantly is all included in his services! So, basically a free spa treatment!
I was telling the Dr. that on one of the chat boards a woman from Oklahoma who had seen my pics wished he wasnt so far away and he said how they give a credit for coach airfare to come to him. AND his prices were extremely reasonable! Especially considering we are in the tri-state area and the level of his work!
I obviously cannot say enough nice things about this Dr and office who have litterally changed my life and given me back my ability to stand tall, have less back pain just about IMMEDIATELY and the indents in my shoulder are already dissapaiting!
If you are in the process of deciding on a PS do YOURSELF the favor or checking him out! You'll be glad you did!
