The staff was very friendly. Dr. Chen was super friendly and very informative. He answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable about my decision to move forward with surgery.

Breast Lift

Since I did end up scheduling surgery with Dr. Chen. I now feel it would have been helpful to have a more thorough discussion of my expectations.

However, this ends up being the only time to discuss expectations with the doctor before surgery.
