My story is a little different from most of these because I didn't have surgery with Dr. Engler even though I wanted to. In doing research for a breast implant revision I asked my internist to recommend a plastic surgeon. My internist's daughter had recently had a breast reduction with Dr. Alan Engler and he raved about him. From the moment I met Dr. Alan Engler I knew I was in good hands. He is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, concerned, and warm. But after he examined me he felt that because I had 6 prior breast implant surgeries and was having severe problems (one implant was protruding into the cleavage area, I had constant pain), he was not comfortable doing the surgery he felt I needed. He nevertheless referred me to two other plastic surgeons and encouraged me to call him with any questions. I called him to let him know which Dr. I had selected and I mentioned that I would like to stop by and show him the results since he was instrumental in my decision. I did exactly that. He's been as available to me as if he had been my surgeon. Not only was he NOT my surgeon but he hasn't charged me a penny for all his time and help. Dr. Engler is such a nice, caring, and patient Doctor that I felt compelled to write about him and let others know of this talented and approachable Doctor.
