I had recently noticed a lump growing from my upper back. At first I thought it an overly developed muscle and paid little attention to it until it grew in size, beginning to protrude through my shirt. Actually, it had become noticeable to others. Although not alarmed, I realized it should be examined and likely removed. I was determined to find the best doctor to not only remove the growth but also ensure the impact and any scaring was minimal. I am so happy I put in the requisite time and research for I found the ideal doctor to perform the surgery. I had reviewed and compared other physicians who specialized in this type of surgery - and was so pleased I made the decision to choose Dr. Engler. The results from my surgery could not have been better – beyond my expectations. Given his skill set coupled with his demeanor and approachability he was the ideal surgeon to remove what was later confirmed to be a lipoma.

Upon entering his office, which was very conveniently located, the warmth and professionalism of his staff put me at ease immediately. Dr. Engler greeted me with friendliness and reassurance. He was exceedingly pleasant, professional and transparent throughout the entire consultation; providing me a clear outline of removal options and time frame for recovery. Moreover, the procedure was covered by my insurance policy. The day of the removal, he made the procedure as effortless for me as possible; he explained the stages of the procedure - exactly what he would be doing. As stated, equally important to me was that any resulting scar would not be too conspicuous. Given the size of the lipoma, I was and still am amazed that the sight of the incision is barely noticeable. This only serves to underscore Dr. Engler skills.

At first I was hesitant to have the surgery; however, Dr. Engler’s technique resulted in very little detectable impact to my body and complete removal of the protrusion. He answered all my questions and allayed any concerns I had. Following the procedure I was amazed at the lack discomfort and how quickly I resumed my daily activities. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Engler to anyone in need of Lipoma removal.
