going through the motions

I never made it past the consultation with him for several reasons. First, the woman at the front desk was rude and very short with me. When they gave me the "look book" all the pictures seemed very dated and the majority of them were in black and white making it difficult to make out details. When I met with the doctor (over 1 hour after my appointment was scheduled to start) he seemed to not even really be there with me, it's difficult to explain, but he just seemed to be going through the motions and did not seem that interested in me. Overall he and his staff seemed a little burned out.

Loving the new me!!

From the first appointment, everything was reassuring. Dr. Widenhouse answered any questions I had and let me know what expectations I should have. His staff was great at helping getting the insurance approval. They kept me updated. Everything went really fast too. I am so grateful for Dr. Widenhouse. Thank you so much!! I would recommend him to anyone.

I guess I'm a tough customer, but I would recommend Dr. Widenhouse...

Dr. Widenhouse recently removed an actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous lesion) from my face. I was anxious since I did not know anyone who had used him previously & I had not seen any "work" he had done other than breast implants on the internet, but my insurance company sent me to Dr. Widenhouse and would not pay for me to see either of the plastic surgeons I had seen in the past. Dr. Widenhouse did an excellent job, although I think he was a little miffed at me for asking so many questions. I will definitely use him again (if he will see me and endure my questions) - when the need arises - and refer others to him. I need to have an ongoing relationship with a plastic surgeon since I have spent alot of time in the sun, in suntan beds, and using PUVA to treat my severe chronic psoriasis. Hopefully, Dr. Widenhouse and I will develop a mutually beneficial and ongoing physician/patient relationship. His staff members were very friendly and helpful.
