Common sense returns to vaccinations

As reported by the NY Times here, the California Assembly (legislature) has passed strict new laws to ensure widespread vaccinations.   But who would’ve thought Mississippi and West Virginia would have led California by example! That’s right, California’s Assembly just passed a law that requires vaccinations unless there is a medical reason not to do […]

The convenience of online purchasing

  Technology is a great thing. Convenience abounds everywhere. Taxi hailing apps. Couriers bringing food and other needed household items via bicycle or scooter. Everything is available at the tap of a button. And it’s not even a real button – it’s a click on a virtual button! Well now your healthcare is accessible through […]

Body Contouring after Massive Weight Loss

It’s very frustrating for patients to be overweight, have a surgical weight loss procedure like a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, then lose hundreds of pounds but still unable to fit into smaller clothes because of excess skin. Body contouring after massive weight loss allows those patients to finally fit into smaller clothes without the […]

A visit to Cleveland Clinic

When was the last time you were at an amazing healthcare institution that just left you in awe? It’s probably not a question you ask yourself very often. In fact, you naturally hope to avoid a visit to the hospital but I had the pleasure of being at Cleveland Clinic this weekend for good reasons. […]

Good work isn’t cheap, cheap work isn’t good!

As a developer of a price transparency platform, BuildMyBod, I recognize the importance of consumers knowing their healthcare costs before going to a consultation or before getting their medical bill. However, you shouldn’t base your entire decision on cost because good work ain’t cheap and cheap work ain’t good!   Sure you need to know […]

Chin Augmentation

Patients can be self-conscious about many aspects of their body. But in general, things are never as bad as they seem. This is particularly true when it comes to their chin. They may feel a great deal of facial disharmony – concerns about their nose, neck and chin – but a chin augmentation may be […]

The benefits of wonderful operating room staff

I know I’ve blogged about how patients are the real winners if they find a doctor who has his or her own operating room, but I can’t overemphasize that enough! Our in-office operating room is getting busier each week with new patients and the OR staff are really starting to shine.   The key is […]

Brazilian Butt Lift: Do I have enough fat?

How many times have you asked yourself this question?! OK, maybe never but if you are one of the many consumers out there who want a bigger booty, you probably assumed you had enough fat because we often think we have more fat than we really do. But don’t kid yourself, it takes a lot […]

Liposuction in 60 seconds [video]

In the video below from our surgical library, we show how liposuction is not only a procedure in and of itself, but also a great adjunct to other procedures, such as an abdominoplasty. There has been concern with performing liposuction at the same time as a tummy tuck in the past but with better techniques, liposuction […]

Music in the Operating Room

I think most patients would be surprised to know that their surgeons listen to music in the operating room. While the operating room is a place for seriousness and focus, some may think music detracts from that singular focus we hope our surgeons have.   However, you should consider music to be a supporting character […]
