Considerations For Patients Seeking A Physician


In my last blog post, I reflected on the honor of being named a “Top Doc” by Baltimore Magazine. I would like to take a moment now to discuss how the Top Doc award might be a helpful resource to people seeking a variety of medical treatments.

This year, I have been given the Top Doc award in three different categories: hair restoration, facial treatments, and breast surgery. Because plastic surgery has many different facets and subspecialties, this breakdown is particularly important. These categories represent the areas of my practice in which my peers believe I particularly excel, but they also represent some of my major interests in the field. To be acknowledged in the areas of your work you are particularly passionate about is very rewarding.

When an individual decides to seek out a doctor, regardless of the procedure, it is vital to look for a surgeon who has the experience and passion necessary to address that person’s concerns. I emphasize to all of my potential patients the importance of being comfortable with the physician and the physician’s staff, as trust and doctor-patient communication are essential to achieving aesthetic goals and surgical outcomes that meet the patient’s expectations. Awards such as Baltimore Magazine’s Top Doc give potential patients a resource to find local physicians that have been vetted by their peers.
