Staff. Especially the anesthesiologist took a great deal of time with me. No one seemed to be in a hurry but I was ready ahead of schedule.
I got the silver lining of breast cancer - new boobs! And smaller too! [Single best thing is...] Dr. Frank Albino's bedside manner. He listened to me, and calmed me during the turmoil of breast cancer.
I'm very pleased with the results of my surgery. Dr. Albino set realistic expectations and then met them. But what is more remarkable to me than his surgical skill is his behavior toward me as a patient. I always feel like he listens to my concerns and addresses them in a very down-to-earth manner. He went above and beyond what I could have hoped for in my post-operative care. I expected him to be an excellent surgeon. I didn't expect him to also be so nice. I was also pleasantly surprised by the office staff. Every single person I have dealt with at the Annandale office has been so friendly and efficient. I only have positive things to say about my entire experience. The results of the surgery have had a huge positive impact on my self-confidence. I no longer have to try to camouflage the features that have been bothering me for years. What a difference!
Staff was very attentive and thorough with making sure my choices would result in the best outcome for me. I received amazing after care following the procedure and made to feel extremely at ease. Very happy with the results.
Dr. Albino and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is friendly and professional and I know I'm receiving excellent care. I'm a breast cancer patient and Dr. Albino has been able to make me look as close to normal as possible.
I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Albino. From the very beginning he showed great kindness and thoroughly explained the ins and outs of my procedure. There was very little to be worried or anxious about, both pre and post surgery. He even made himself available outside the office and really took the time to follow up to make sure my recovery was going smoothly. I can't think of a more friendly, compassionate, and skilled surgeon to trust, if I ever need another procedure down the road I won't hesitate to see Dr. Albino again. I truly felt like I was in very good hands with Dr. Albino. The overall quality of care combined with amazing results has lifted a huge weight off my chest, both literally and figuratively! I feel like a new person.
Dr. Albino is amazing. Really puts you at ease. Great surgeon. I'd see him again and have recommended him to friends and family. The hospital where the main procedure took place was fantastic as were all the nurses. Less discomfort than before procedure
I feel that there was concern for my opinion and making sure I looked my best. I wasn't sure exactly what size I wanted to be and I feel the size chosen for me was a perfect fit for my body.
They where so nice and explained everything I needed to know also results were great
The staff is friendly and respectful. Dr. Albino exhibits an outstanding balance between his skill and his "bedside manner." Other like professionals speak very highly of him.
Staff and Doctor were very responsive. Office was able to work with Dr. to gain short notice appointments and to address post surgical issues. I felt like all my questions were well answered and had no hesitancy about calling in for more info as needed. Thanks to all for a great experience. I am very happy with the care and attention given during the entire procedure.
Dr. Albino was highly attentive and very patient with all my questions. His willingness to answer questions, at any time, was greatly appreciated. Dr. Albino's calm and pleasant demeanor, combined with his caring attitude, is a chief reason I chose CPS over 3 other plastic surgery practices. Breast reconstruction following a double mastectomy (after breast cancer diagnosis) has contributed to a very high level of everyday satisfaction for me. While reconstruction doesn't cure cancer, it certainly has helped me move forward without feeling awkward or self conscious about my appearance.
First off, Dr. Albino is terrific and very skilled. But the whole office is superb - Mary was always helpful and kind, as were every single one of the nurses and technicians who helped me.
Dr Albino and the entire staff were incredibly helpful, supportive, available before and after, and clearly knew what they were doing and listened to me and my questions. As a result, I had no problem with maintaining a positive attitude and a minimum level of discomfort.
Dr. Albino was professional and compassionate! He and the staff made themselves available for getting the process done in and expedient manner. I felt well cared for. Dr. Albino also focused on what would help me heal faster rather than just the surgery. I am thankful for everyone's kindness in helping me!
The care and expertise of Dr. Albino as well as the nursing staff.
Friendly personable honest
I have a good talking relationship with Dr. Albino and his nurses. I feel comfortable asking questions before, during, and after visits. Visits are a positive experience.
Excellent communication about the options. Caring and compassionate doctor and staff
