I went to Dr. Engler to have a large lipoma (a benign fatty growth) removed from my back. I knew I had it for a while but it wasn’t until I was trying on some bathing suits and saw myself in a mirror that I realized how big it was. And, frankly, I was horrified. I knew it needed to be removed but I didn’t want a huge scar and I wanted to make sure I was in good hands from every standpoint. Aside from the fact that I’m 59 years old, surgery is scary; even what might be considered a small surgery (although, with the size of my lipoma, nothing about it was going to be “small.”) I started reading the reviews of surgeons online and, after narrowing it down to a few, made appointments for consultations.

After meeting with Dr. Engler I canceled my other appointments. I was so comfortable and reassured that I no longer felt it was necessary. From his staff to the office setting to Dr. Engler himself, I simply felt that I didn’t need to look any further.
