I first heard of Dr. Engler from my sister who had breast augmentation surgery. At the time, my sister was attending New York University, majoring in nursing, and when she decided to do the surgery she did extensive research on different plastic surgeons who perform the procedure. She chose Dr. Engler because of his impeccable credentials. Little did she know that there was a lot more to Dr. Engler than that. After her surgery, she and I discussed the possibility of me getting a breast augmentation as well. She expressed how caring and compassionate Dr. Engler was and so a couple of years later, remembering what my sister told me, I contacted Dr. Engler for a consultation. I was very nervous because I had two children and was fearful of any surgical procedures. I discussed my fears with Dr. Engler and he quickly put my mind at ease. He was very patient with the thousands of questions I had asked. I also found Dr. Engler to be both encouraging and honest. As I'm sure many woman do, my first instinct was to have huge breasts. However, his suggestions were both honest and on point and the size that we agreed I should have were, in fact, perfect for my body. Doctor Engler not only looks at you as his patient, but also as his friend. I was not just a chart number to him, I was a human being with fears that he understood. He was very attentive, caring, and accommodating both pre and post surgery. 13 years later I am still very happy with my breasts, so much so that when my eldest daughter decided she wanted breast augmentation surgery, there was no doubt in my mind who that surgeon was going to be. Years later, Dr. Engler and his staff were very welcoming and made me feel like an old friend. My sister trusted him with her life, and I trusted him not only with mine, but my daughter's as well. I am also thinking about doing other cosmetic surgery, and I am looking forward to Doctor Englers guidance and ultimate exquisite, results.
