Where to start with Dr Engler. First of all, let me preface by saying I did meet with several well regarded/known plastic surgeons in New York City and even one in a borough to get a feel for what to expect; as well as an understanding of preferred techniques and styles. What I particularly appreciated about Dr Engler is that he has a very cautious approach and is not afraid to tell you no to procedures that will not have the best outcome for you in his extensive experience. I was impressed with his professionalism and candor as my first impression. Many of Dr Engler's personality attributes have already been commented on positively by previous posters for which I will also attest is true. His openness to discussing what the potential outcome could be went a long way to having more managed expectations toward recovery. His office staff, particularly Arlene who I interacted with frequently to ensure that I had all my pre-op steps covered was very courteous and reassuring. I have found through my previous experiences with office staff in specialist offices, the attitude of staff towards you makes a big difference to your impression of the experience of the doctor. Dr Engler, also accommodated a short notice for my surgery which I am very grateful for as I had mandatory days of vacation to take. He was very patient and helpful towards what must have been a lot of annoying specific questions prior to my surgery. Speaking of recovery, I had a particularly rough one. This was my first experience of surgery and I was in a lot of pain, more than I anticipated for the first couple of days. Dr Engler was very hands on keeping in touch with me directly several times a day and giving me comfort/advice as needed. It made a world of difference as I would have otherwise scared myself on all the possible scenarios available to me on the internet (which is never a good idea). Even though it's only been 8 days, my body already looks amazingly better and it's getting smaller every day. I could not be happier with my experience with Dr Engler and absolutely recommend him to anyone considering his specialty.
