I was fortunate enough to visit both the Chevy Chase and Annandale offices. At each visit I was pleasantly greeted by the front desk staff and nurses.
Dr. Albino is an outstanding plastic surgeon. He's a caring and sensitive surgeon. All my appointments, Dr. Albino asked me how I'm feeling, he talked to me. I love his genuine caring for me, he even called me on the phone twice to see how I'm feeling after surgery.
My reconstructed breasts look like a nicely enhanced version of my real ones.
I was referred to Dr. Albino by my breast physician. 12 years ago, I underwent a mastectomy/reconstruction and was in need of a replacement implant. I had put having this procedure off for a long time, but after meeting with Dr. Albino and his staff, my fears dissolved. Dr. Albino was professional and trust worthy in every sense of the word. He gave honest advice, and made certain all of my questions were answered. During my consultation, I felt like I was talking to a friend who truly had my best interest at heart. His staff was equally impressive. They exceeded my expectations in every way possible. As a result of this phenomenal team, I had a lift and a replacement implant. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome. Dr. Albino did an amazing job!
Dr. Albino is a great surgeon who takes the time to explain what's going on with your body and answers any questions you may have.
After double Mastectomy I had the spenders put in my breast, everything went well, good recovery, I really appreciate the all attention and care I received, Thanks Doc. Albino I'm ready for Reconstruction.
The entire staff has been professional throughout, respectful of my privacy and my feelings about this procedure, helpful and informative. From top to bottom, they have been top notch.
Excellent quality of health care, one of the best I have ever experienced. From a gifted surgeon who has a wonderful bedside manner, to highly competent and approachable nurses, to professional and friendly office staff.
The doctor and staff are kind people. I am happy with the results too.
I'm always treated at both locations, every staff member make you feel at ease and give quality care. Dr. Albino has been wonderful and is extremely skilled plastic surgeon.
Dr. Albino was very thoughtful and compassionate throughout the process. He came highly recommended by my breast cancer doctor. I am so grateful to be on the other side of that and very happy with my reconstruction.
[Highly satisfied?] Yes!! Everyone was very pleasant and patient and listened to my fears and concerns. Very professional staff that always made you feel reassured rather than a burden no matter how many times you contacted the office, nurse, or doctor.
Thank you to the very caring staff while I was at the Chevy Case facility!
This was a surgery caused by a cancer diagnosis, which is not one I would have elected to do on my own. Dr. Albino made me comfortable from the start. He spent a lot of time with me explaining my options and he took my personal situation into account. I have young kids and he advised me on a certain surgery so that I would have the fastest recovery. This was the best advice. He really took the time to help me make the best decision for me and my family and I appreciate that. He also had good bedside manner and I enjoyed working with him.
Dr. Albino is such a gifted surgeon....I am so glad I found him! The treatment I received before my surgery and during my recovery was just amazing. Dr. Albino's team, pre-op nurse Lindsey and Shiloh also deserve recognition. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Albino and CPS staff.
Dr. Albino and Lindsay answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable. Dr. Albino is simply the best!
Dr. Albino and his entire staff are professional, compassionate and provided outstanding service. The only thing that surpasses Dr. Albino's kindness is his expertise.
Dr. Albino performed two separate surgeries 9 months apart. The first was to insert breast expanders during my double mastectomy. The second was my DIEP FLAP reconstructive surgery (together with Dr. Rao). Both surgeries were a huge success with NO complications, and the healing was so quick with both procedures. I honestly believe with both surgeries, so much could have gone wrong with the wrong surgeon. He had the extra difficulty during the DIEP FLAP reconstruction of trying to make two breasts symmetrical, with only the left side having radiation and major skin changes. I am so THRILLED with the results! Even my oncologist said my reconstruction looks so good, she would use this team if she had to do this. SO thankful for Dr. Albino's expertise, great personality, and attention to detail. I would only use him for ANY plastic surgery!
Dr. Frank Albino was professional, kind, caring, sincere, the list is endless. With the amount of "problems" I had come up, Dr. Albino was always there for me, no matter what time of day, or even on weekends! His personalized attention to me and at times my emotional breakdowns I had with my cancer diagnosis, he understood and his compassion was above and beyond. Dr. Albino always: made me feel welcomed, explained every procedure to my full understanding, (and some days I admit were a challenge for him because I was so scared). Lindsay, Dr. Albino's nurse was professional and kind and always made me feel welcomed and cared for, just like Dr. Frank Albino. No question or concern was too great a challenge for Lindsay. She was always calm, cool, and collected. Mary, who was Dr. Albino's patient coordinator at the time, was warm, caring, and made scheduling my procedures so less fearful than they could have been otherwise. The front receptionist were professional, warm, and caring no matter how many times I bothered them with questions, or rescheduling. Dr. Albino's new patient coordinator (who's name escapes me at this time) has been "right on the money" and a wonderful replacement for his previous patient coordinator Mary. Despite the reason why I had to see Dr. Albino and "his crew" it was a wonderful and "never to be repeated" experience for me. As soon as I walked into Dr. Albino's office and met Dr. Frank Albino, I felt safe, secure, and well cared for. I have been to many doctors, and Dr. Frank Albino has been one of the top doctors I have had the pleasure to be under his care.
The outcome was what I wanted. The staff are great. The fact that I have had some post operative issues and they are being addressed professionally and with treatment is terrific. The litmus test of a good provider is one that supports follow up and treats complications or outcomes as they arise. I will continue to work with Dr. Albino and his team for all my plastic surgery and skin care needs.
