This is to make everyone aware if considering plastic surgery in Costa Rica. This place is known to have exceptional medical care and some of the finest surgeons in the world except this institution called Rosenstock Center. My doctor treated me like a price tag and performed surgery like such! he performed lipo on my outter thighs, then he sent me home the same afternoon and did not bother to call back for a follow up. I ended up calling back because I have developed inflamation on my glands(throat). He said I should not worry it might just be irritation and will go away in two, three days. A week is gone by and I am worse ending up with infection which forced me to go to another doctor who took care of me and cured it in just two days. My lipo surgery was bad,my skin looked bad it wasn't smooth and it looked like he did not take anything. Usually and professinally these surgeons must follow up and sit with the patient, show pictures and talk about what he/she take out from your body,etc. This doctor did not call once, nor did he care to follow up after the surgery. I forced the center to create an appointment and demanded that the doctor see me and clarify what in the world did he do to my body. He showed no emotion, was very short in his speech and kept looking at his watch trying to make it as quick as possible. I was not pleased with his work, I don't like how my thighs look now they look worse than before and he could care less. I want to let everyone know if you are thinking about plastic surgery in Costa Rica, DO NOT EVEN THINK about considering Rosenstock Center for your plastic surgery. The only doctors I would recommend and I'm not so sure, are Dr.Rashi and perhaps the founder of the center but my experience with Dr.Cohen was REALLY BAD and I hope everyone is really careful choosing their surgeon. Research sometimes isn't enough but the experience from someone who's already done it counts more. If you need more details about this horrible experience, feel free to email me at mrodz1@msn.com I'd be glad to give you a list of good surgeons there including dentists. I had dental, and plastic surgery procedures and know now who is the best in town and I can also give you their contact information. I am creating a web site dedicated to my experience and dedicated to the good doctors that did an excellent job there.
