Why? Because my staff and the nurses at the hospital are a joy to work with. Surgery is always interesting and fun. It is technical, exacting and artistic. In plastic surgery, we have the unusual benefit of being able to realize immediate results. My patients are great. They come from all different walks of life and have interesting stories and backgrounds. I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I do.”
