To ensure our ratings come only from verified patients, we work with Press Ganey, a third-party organization. Press Ganey sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVHN’s behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor’s or advanced practice clinician’s communication skills. Read more about our survey.
I want each of my patients to feel like they are the only patient in the practice. Every patient is different. I want them to trust me and know that their care will be individualized to meet their needs and goals. I treat my patients like they are members of my family. My ultimate goal is their happiness.
I knew I wanted to become a plastic and reconstructive surgeon when I read the book “The Work of Human Hands.” It’s about a pediatric surgeon in Boston and tells the stories of the children and families he helped throughout his career. I shared the physician’s desire to help people and make a real difference in their lives.
I volunteer with surgical missions as part of the organization Healing the Children. I visit third-world countries to care for children with cleft lip and cleft palate. I also care for our community as a member of our Bariatric Support Group and Multidisciplinary Breast Disease Management Team.
