Dr. Symbas and team are a very caring and professional group. They promote an atmosphere for your comfort. They listen attentively to your concerns and desires and give you the options available for results you are looking for. Kept my wishes in mind throughout every procedure.
I may not have been fair with not indicating highly satisfied in all areas. Any dissatisfaction I have are not the fault of the surgeon or the staff. I had breast reconstruction after bilateral mastectomy and I expected my breast to look different than they do after the exchange from expanders to implants.
Very impressed with the doctor and nurses. Reconstruction of both breasts after double mastectomy.....and it looks more like a breast augmentation. Dr Larsen was very friendly, and became a friend, even going on a scuba dive trip with my group.
Dr. Grunwald made me feel comforatable and important from the very first visit. Her staff was just amazing too. Everyone greets you with a huge smile and hugs. Breast cancer is a very scary, long process, but as part of my medical team, Dr. Grunwald was amazing. I am very happy with the outcome. Any little issues or questions I have, I receive a very quick response. I would highly recommend Dr. Grunwald.
I was treated like a patient and not a case. I had a voice and it was heard
Dr. Symbas and his staff are amazing. They are professional, compassionate, and consistently go above and beyond to make you comfortable. I am a breast reconstruction patient and was forced to switch doctors during this process. I am so happy that I met Dr. Symbas. He and his staff have made a difficult transition extremely easy. I can't say enough about how great they are.
I felt like a valued client and I am very satisfied with the results.
Dr. Larsen was my 3rd surgeon and this was my 7th attempt at breast reconstruction surgery. Dr. Larsen nailed it! I could not be more pleased. His staff is always so accommodating. Susan and Tara are the best.
The entire staff at this office is highly professional, truly make the patient feel that their needs come first, are heard and within the power of the staff met. I have had 3 surgeries in 7 weeks and wouldn't have want to go through this with any other Doctor, PA, nurses or office staff. They provided one of the bright spots in the midst of unforeseen complications that were not of their making. Feeling blessed that I sought a second opinion for plastic surgeon to reconstruct following bilateral mastectomy.
Could not be more satisfied with this practice--everyone is experienced, caring, informative, professional. the attention they gave to a 67 year old woman post mastectomy reconstruction -- every question answered, every concern addressed.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful. They treated me like apart of their family. I would recommend them to family and friends.
Dr Merriman and her staff are all helpful and highly professional. I feel Dr Merriman is a real artist in her plastic surgery work. I am highly satisfied with the results. I have full confidence and would recommend her to anyone needing any plastic procedure especially breast reconstruction and reduction as I had.
The doctor explained all options very well. It was clear the doctor strives for excellence. I was very pleased how I was treated during consultation by the staff and doctor all the way through surgery and recovery. I was devastated to deal with removing cancer. The reconstruction surgery was integral is feeling my normal self again.
I loved all the staff. Dr B is VERY funny and a refreshing change from the first surgeon who was originally scheduled to perform my reconstruction. His name is [name], MD. the whole experience was abominable. Dr B's office is beautiful and conducive to putting one at ease. It is apparent that a lot of time, thoughtfulness and excellent education have produced such a pleasant and reassuring environment. I was put at ease by all the staff, especially Dr B. who is very funny. we had met once a long time ago in a social setting and started talking about veterinary school which he had attended with one of my dogs' vets before he became an MD. I remembered his name when I needed reconstruction. it was a great ice breaker to remind him of our prior meeting. He was willing to take his time and do things right. I needed to postpone surgery because of an infection and he knew that waiting was the appropriate protocol.
From the very first day I met Dr. Carolino he was so loving and caring. I was extremely nervous but he made me feel so comfortable. Such a wonderful man! I had breast reconstructive surgery - I am so please with my final results - I feel normal again.
Dr Ghazi is very compassionate and also very honest with what to expect and what is possible for him to do. Having a double mastectomy is shocking, but he made me feel good that he will help me feel back to normal soon and with little pain. I have my final reconstruction surgery soon, and can hardly wait! Even now, with only expanders, I don't feel bad...I still feel feminine, which I didn't think I would.
Everyone was nice and made me feel Totally comfortable. The surgery so far has met my expectations. I felt very confident and comfortable with my surgeon
First visit Dr. Grunwald spent lots of time with me and made me feel very comfortable and confident in her ability to do the reconstruction procedure. I was disappointed that I would need several surgeries to get the outcome I wanted, but am confident the final outcome will be terrific. Not finished yet, but see results with each surgery
Very personable, compassionate. Listened to my concerns, answered my questions.
