WHAT SETS YOU APART?
I pride myself on quality individualized care. I truely listen to my patients and try to address all their needs,and concerns. My goals are natural results that fit a patients face, and personality.

CONSULTATION
After the initial introductions, I listen to why a patient has come in for consultation, evaluate them, then discuss all options, benefits, and concerns, then discuss goals of the surgery/treatments and alternatives. I then listen to the patients concerns, and goals for outcomes to mutual decide on a plan.

PRE & POST-OP
I personally evaluate the patient preoperatively, as well as postoperatively.

QUALITIES I POSSESS
Sincerity, compassion, honesty, intelligence, and a love for his/her work. Yes, I have them.

WHY DID I BECOME A DOCTOR
I became a doctor because my mother wanted me to. I went into plastic surgery because I wanted to to. I loved the idea of working with my hands, making patients feel good about themselves and being able to combine science, and art, and always felt i had a great eye for aesthetics, while being very compassionate.

MOST IMPORTANT/REWARDING PARTS OF MY WORK
Seeing a patient smile postoperatively, hearing they feel good about themselves. I do medical mission trips every year to help children in underserved countries. I do reconstructive surgeries at county hospitals in the US, close cancer surgery defects, and scars from skin cancers, and was on Larry King Live after repairing the face of a very special platient mauled by a mountain lion.
