Professional Statement:

  • The most important qualification I possess is a strong understanding of how important one’s self-image is. I do not take the responsibility of improving it lightly. The relationship between my patients and me begins with the consultation. My initial goal is to put patients at ease so they feel comfortable communicating exactly what they hope to gain from this process– mentally, physically and emotionally. I listen carefully and approach each patient with honesty; Setting expectations is key. I believe in a relaxed, direct approach — no gimmicks. The relationship I build with my patients is based on trust, confidence, caring, and the knowledge that this relationship extends far beyond the operating room.
