I Am Simply Thankful

As the holiday season approaches, I truly am thankful to all my patients that have entrusted their plastic surgery procedures to me over this past year. I am also grateful for my patients who have kindly expressed their experiences on-line by posting reviews on social media platforms such as Facebook, Yelp, and Google. I am truly humbled.

This holiday season, I hope we all take time for reflection and gratitude for our health, our joys, our life’s journey, and for all the fulfilling promises that await us.

I wish you and your family a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

The Talk Awards For Cosmetic Surgeons

Cosmetic Surgeons AwardOn August 8th, 2016, I was presented for the seventh consecutive year the “Customer Service Awards” by The TALK Awards. The award category was for cosmetic surgeons regarding excellence in customer satisfaction in the state of California. This award is very special to me due to the highly competitive and subjective field of cosmetic surgery.

I believe that The TALK Award is based on gathered information from a combination of online, user-review websites, blogs, social networks, and business-rating services.

Recognized As One of RealSelf 100

On March 22, 2016, I received notification that I am one of 100 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 100 award. RealSelf is an online community that helps people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures.

The RealSelf 100 award recognizes doctors for having an outstanding record of consumer feedback and for providing credible, valuable, and insightful responses to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments in plastic surgery.
I believe it is important to participate in answering these questions on RealSelf that patients have when considering aesthetic-related questions. I have answered over 550 questions and have enjoyed doing so these past few years, and I look forward to answering more questions patients have about aesthetic plastic surgery.
