MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I decided to go with Dr. Whiteman because I had heard really good reviews from someone that had a face lift from him. He is the chief of PS at the hospital and his office staff is really helpful. When I first met with him, I felt very rushed, but blew it off that I was just asking too many questions. But, after the surgery, all but one time, I also felt very rushed. I do believe he is a good doctor that knows what he is doing but he doesn't take time with you to make you feel comfortable AND probably the biggest problem I had is that HE decides what size you should be for a reduction vs what you want. He decides what works with your body frame and doesn't explain himself. He also answers questions like your an idiot.

I hesitate to leave him a more neutral review because I know that he is good at what he does. My breasts are even, they are well shaped but they are not much smaller than before surgery because HE didn't think they needed to be. If you are looking for a good surgeon that knows techniques, he will provide that. If you are looking for someone to make you feel at ease and to explain things... you probably won't get it from this doctor. I would check with others before deciding....
