I was searching for a general surgeon/plastic surgeon through my insurance company to remove 12 lipomas on my forearms. I was very fortunate to have found Dr. Engler. I knew nothing about him my first visit to his office. I was very impressed with the women who work in the office. They were very friendly, caring and organized. I was very nervous about having these lipomas removed, meaning I would have 12 incisions. Dr. Engler automatically put me at ease with his down to earth, confident personality. He kept me well-informed before the surgery about exactly what will take place. I was very comfortable at the hospital and after the surgery, which took place on a Friday. He called me all weekend long to make sure I wasn't having any complications. I didn't even feel him removing the drains and stitches on my follow up visit to his office. There should be more doctors like him in this world today. Doctors who care about their patient's well being. My lipomas are gone and I'm healing well - thanks to Dr. Engler
