Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I am pleased with my results, although I will probably need a lift later in addition to my augmentation. (Which was a possibility going into all of this!)
I think Dr. Spindel & his staff are very capable & great at what they do. The only thing is that he didn't seem very sensitive to how I felt post-operatively. And I felt like my appointments (aside from my actual surgery day) were rushed. I think he schedules consultations & followups in 15 minute increments...which to me, doesn't allow much time to create a warm atmosphere with patients.
He immediatlely answered any questions I had...even after hours by means of his pager. MJ, the office nurse, is amazing & so, so helpful.
My surgery was performed in his office in a surgical suite (attached to St. Mary's Hospital). His office & surgical suite is immaculate.
The hardest part of going in for surgery was that I had to get undressed & climb onto the surgery table myself. But after receiving my anesthesia, I was out & the next thing I remember is waking up & being told everything was done.
All in all, I would recommend this dr., but just know in advance, you're not getting someone with the bedside manner of Dr. Rey on Dr. 90210.
