The first step you take after researching doctors online is scheduling consults. I personally had three plastic surgery consultation visits with doctors in different cities and each one was different. This was an important factor in helping me choose a doctor. Of the three consults I scheduled my consult at Davis Plastic Surgery was the most informative and the best experience overall.
When I walked in to the office I immediately felt at ease. It was different from some of the offices I visited because it felt much more comfortable and a lot less like a normal doctor’s office. The staff was very friendly and made sure I had everything I needed while I waited to be seen by the doctor. Another thing I noticed about Dr. Davis’ office is that unlike the others I visited Dr. Davis himself came out to get me and immediately took me back to his office. I didn’t have to talk with a nurse first and then wait for him to come back and speak with me.
We met for a moment in his office to discuss some basics (which procedures I wanted, why I wanted them, and what was important to me) and then he had me go into an exam room so he could take a look at my stomach and take my measurements. While I realize that this is completely a personal opinion, I was really impressed with the quality of the office, the equipment, and everything else down to the black robes they use (honestly who wants to use a paper robe?). You can easily see that Dr. Davis and his staff strive to provide the best experience possible for every patient.
After the doctor finished my exam we went back to his office to discuss my procedures. Unlike my other consults I really enjoyed my conversation with Dr. Davis. It didn’t feel like he was trying to “sell” the procedures or his office to me, it was more like plastic surgery 101! He went into depth about each procedure explaining exactly how they would be performed, what my different options were, he went over every possible downside to having the surgery, and he explained everything in a way that was easy to understand.
I can honestly say that after two other consults I learned more from this visit than I did anywhere else, and I left feeling more comfortable about the choices I was making (not because he made them sound good, but because I felt fully educated).
After we went over the procedures I was able to view before and after images from past surgeries, and that really helped me get a better idea of what I could expect in terms of my own results. I wanted to have realistic expectations, and seeing other women who had similar body types helped me with that.
I also went ahead and had my pre-op visit the same day, but I will share about that in my next post.
