I'm usually not one to write reviews but I feel so strongly about my beyond-excellent experience with Dr. E that I just had to write this one. Five years ago I was in my mid-20s and barely filled out a AA cup bra. I felt very self-conscious and disproportionate. I discovered Dr. E while watching a rerun of an episode of Ricki Lake. My attention was first drawn to a young woman with the same body type as mine who wanted breast augmentation. When her results were revealed, I couldn't believe how completely natural her breasts looked! That, combined with Dr. E's warm and genuine demeanor convinced me that I just had to meet him. After doing the necessary research, I was even further convinced by Dr. E's exemplary surgical record and career. At our first meeting, Dr. E took the time to answer all my questions and concerns honestly. He thoroughly explained all the options in a way that I could understand. I'm extremely nervous about surgery and Dr. E was completely understanding and walked me through every aspect of the surgery in detail until I felt comfortable. I never felt like I was being rushed in and out of the office by either Dr. E or his staff. His staff has always been very sweet and welcoming. After my surgery, Dr. E gave my mom his personal cell phone number and told her to call any time day or night if there were any issues. My mom and I were shocked. Neither of us have ever known a doctor to do that. Now, five years later, I couldn't be happier with my figure. I look proportionate and no one believes that I have breast implants! When I showed my close female friends, every single one of them asked "where's the scar?" Everyone I've told, including people who had seen me in a swimsuit before I told them, has had the same reaction: "If you hadn't told me I would never have thought you had breast implants." It's such an amazing feeling to have the confidence to wear anything I want! And I never thought I would call surgery "a pleasant experience" but it certainly was. I was so scared, but Dr. E and his staff took care of me as if I were their only patient. I now need to have my wisdom teeth surgically removed and I wish Dr. E could be the one to do it! If I ever have cosmetic surgery again, there's not a chance I would go to anyone else. When I see him for annual checkups, he always remembers me and my mother and he always asks how she's doing. Everyone in the office treats me like a friend. I've told all my friends and family: if you want cosmetic surgery, Dr. E is the guy to go to. Grateful doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about Dr. E. He gave me the look and the confidence I had always dreamed of. I can't stress enough that Dr. E is THE surgeon to go to.
