If you’re anything like me, you perform extensive research on anything that requires a substantial commitment in your life; whether it be a new apartment, a hairdresser or an espresso machine...it all comes down to the reviews...and that's most definitely the case when it comes to selecting doctors–especially when you're going under the knife. I had a massive lipoma on my back (I'm talking almost a 6-inch diameter) and had one goal in mind for its removal: SMALL scar.

Reading several glowing reviews about Dr. Engler’s work, I noticed there was one common thread that each testimony consistently raved about – his level of commitment to his clients.

I contacted 6 doctors total and there was only one who wrote me back personally – that was Dr. Engler. I had consultations with 4 of the surgeons and after meeting Dr. Engler, I knew my search had ended.

During our consultation, he put me at ease by going into such detailed explanation of the entire procedure, how/what I would expect to feel and took the time to answer all of my specific questions around the recovery process. I didn’t want to have to do this in the hospital and was concerned about anesthesia and pain. But Dr. Engler assured me that we could do this in his office surgery facility under just local anesthesia. Of course, the injections were a little uncomfortable but he and his assistant talked me through the whole thing and kept me comfortable, and it turned out to be surprisingly easy. And, despite my squeamishness, it was even kind of interesting!

The care that Dr. Engler and his team provide is a first class experience. Dr. Engler is literally involved with you through every step of the process and most importantly through the recovery. I actually was so impressed at how Dr. E proactively remained connected with me during my recovery process. I live in close proximity to his office and he called just to check on me to make sure I had gotten home safely. The day after the surgery, I woke up and was greeted with a phone call from Dr. E checking on my status and without hesitation he let me know that he would be coming into the city on Saturday – yes, a Saturday – just so that he could remove the drain and change my dressing.

The results of my surgery were incredible and far exceeded my expectations; the size of the incision on my back is about a half-inch...it literally looks like a tiny cat scratch! And virtually no pain at all. I am still in awe of the fact that Dr. Engler was able to extract such a massive amount of fat tissue from my back through such a minuscule incision...but this is why you go to a surgeon who knows what he's doing; just a few weeks later the scar I have is so unnoticeable.

So if you're looking for a surgeon that genuinely cares and will dedicate his time to ensuring your comfort through your entire procedure, look no further.

I know how important it is to read the personal testimonies of others as that is what led me to Dr. Engler and I'm so grateful to his previous clients for taking the time to write about their individual positive experiences; I hope that you have the opportunity to work with Dr. Engler and experience his level of commitment to your overall well being so that you can share your story with others too.
