New testimonials from my wonderful patients

I am always flattered to know that I have helped my patients with some facet of their lives. We just updated our website with three new patient testimonials, received via third party websites RealSelf and Vitals. As always, we only publish testimonials that have been independently verified via email and IP address.

 

"I knew after 1/2 hour with her that she was the one!"

"Dr. Lara is amazing. I went for 2 consultations prior to seeing her. I knew after 1/2 hour with her that she was the one! She also got me to quit smoking. I am now almost 4 months tobacco FREE!" -MW, 52 year old woman, abdominoplasty, via RealSelf.com

"My surgery was flawless and the results astonishing"

"Dr. Devgan was attentive, caring and nurturing. It is great to have a plastic surgeon with sound technical training-- which she has-- but connecting with the patient and establishing the bond is what I valued most. My surgery was flawless and the results astonishing. I would highly recommend her services for plastic surgery and will keep her in my rolodex." -PBP, 34 year old woman, abdominoplasty, via Vitals.com

"A consummate professional... with deep experience and breadth of knowledge" 

"Outstanding. Dr. Devgan is a wonderful doctor. She promptly saw me after I was concerned about a lump on my scalp. She carefully took a sample (with no pain and bleeding) to be analyzed and in less than 48 hours was able to reassure me that it was innocous. She surgically removed the rest of the lump without distorting my hairline. Dr. Devgan is a consummate professional and with her deep experience and breadth of knowledge, I was never worried that I would not get the best possible care. I would recommend her to anyone with reconstructive surgery needs." -Name and age withheld, man, biopsy and excision of large suspicious lesion on scalp, submitted via Vitals.com
